migrant facility for children:

    Law enforcement sources report huge increases in the apprehension of unaccompanied children (UAC) along the Texas border with Mexico. Despite the opening of a new facility in Carrizo Springs, Texas, Border Patrol facilities continue to experience overcrowding not seen since the 2019 migrant crisis. Despite efforts by the Border Patrol to transfer the UAC’s into suitable Health and Human Services (HSS) shelters, the minors are not being accepted by HSS in a timely manner — running contrary to current legal requirements. Delays in the transfer of the migrant children in many cases exceed the legal limit of 72 hours. The reopening of a Health and Human Services Office of Refugee Resettlement (HSS ORR) facility for UACs in Carrizo Springs, Texas, appears to have had little impact on the overcrowding at Border Patrol stations along the border.

On Monday, HHS announced that the first minors had arrived in Carrizo Springs, which has a capacity of 700 people. Two years ago the facility was transformed into a detention center...
            by Kaylee Greenlee  A new facility to hold unaccompanied migrant children was opened in Texas this week because the Biden administration is encouraging illegal immigration, a former border official said Wednesday. The Carrizo Springs facility was not opened to comply with COVID-19 regulations as the Biden administration has said, according to former Acting Commissioner of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Mark Morgan in an interview with Fox Business. The temporary facility will hold up to 700 migrant children in hard-sided structures, and around 200 unaccompanied teenagers were transported to the facility Monday, CBS News reported. “There’s so much hypocrisy, false narratives, and the president and his press secretary lied to the American people,” Morgan said. “Those facilities aren’t needed because of COVID, that’s absolutely not true, those facilities are needed because this administration is now encouraging, incentivizing, and facilitating illegal entry in the United States...

    Savannah Rychcik February 23, 2021 0 Comments White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki is facing tough questioning about why a former Trump facility for migrant children is being reopened after President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris previously criticized the former president’s immigration policy. When asked during her Tuesday press briefing why the Biden administration is reopening a migrant facility for children in Texas, Psaki claimed it is a “temporary reopening” amid the COVID-19 pandemic and their “intention is very much to close it, but we want to ensure that we can follow COVID protocols as unaccompanied minors come into the United States.” The reporter pointed out it is the same facility that was open under the Trump administration for a month in summer of 2019.

    An immigration detention center in south Texas has been converted into a staging ground to hold migrant families with children who the Trump administration seeks to expel from the U.S. without a court hearing, asylum interview or consultation with lawyers. The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) family detention center in Karnes City, Texas, is being used exclusively to hold migrant parents and children processed under an emergency pandemic-era policy that requires their swift expulsion from U.S. soil, the agency and outside lawyers told CBS News. An ICE spokesperson confirmed the Karnes facility is now only housing "Title 42 family units prior to their expulsion" through deportation flights. The term "Title 42" refers to the process the Trump administration has created to expel border-crossers under public health laws during the pandemic, rather than placing them in deportation proceedings or allowing them to request forms of U.S. humanitarian refuge, like asylum....
