Texas site chosen as temporary shelter for unaccompanied children

Employees at Casa Padre, a former Walmart that houses almost 1,500 unaccompanied migrant children in Brownsville, Texas, called the police on Sen. He said no other former Walmart sites are being used to house youths as part of its program for unaccompanied children.

"We're trying to do the best that we can taking care of these children".

Founder and CEO of the nonprofit, Juan Sanchez, said only national media was invited, and declined an interview. Called "Casa Padre", it is now the largest such shelter in the country and houses almost 1,500 boys between the ages of 10 and 17. "It's a big, big difference".

Presidential mural are everywhere, but Trump's is first.

"Sometimes by losing a battle you find a new way to win the war", is written on the wall, quoting a tweet from Trump two years before he became president.

"My fellow Americans, we are and always will be a nation of immigrants", it reads.

There are no windows, and the children get only two hours a day outside the facility.

Boys share bedrooms with no doors and walls that reach only halfway to the 20-foot-high ceilings, The Post reported.

The Trump administration has selected Tornillo Land Point of Entry, a crossing point along the Texas-Mexico border near El Paso, as the site of its first temporary shelter for immigrant children separated from their parents under the administration's "zero tolerance" policy, a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services spokesperson confirmed Thursday.

A Republican congressman from Texas who toured a tent-like shelter for hundreds of minors who entered the country illegally said on Saturday the facility is a byproduct of a flawed immigration strategy.

"HHS is legally required to provide care and shelter for all unaccompanied alien children referred by DHS, and works in close coordination with DHS on the security and safety of the children and community", Wolfe said in a statement.

In response to those allegations, a Southwest Key Programs spokesperson told Newsweek that the most serious of the 150 health violations at the 16 shelters were self-reported.

After Merkley's video gained traction online, Walmart released a statement saying they were deeply disturbed about the use of their former store.

Also their beds and the towels they shower with.

Casa Padre is the same facility that Sen.
