Biden Admin Reopens Trump-Era Texas Detention Facility for Migrant Teens

HeadlineFeb 24, 2021

Immigrant justice advocates are denouncing the Biden administration’s decision to reopen a Texas detention facility for unaccompanied migrant teenagers that was briefly used in 2019 under Trump. The first group of teens arrived at the tent facility Monday. Officials say the camp is needed to avoid overcrowding in other facilities during the pandemic. The facility is located in the city of Carrizo Springs. The camp has been widely condemned by immigrant rights advocates over its conditions and lack of transparency in how it operates.
