Photographs from inside one of the Biden administration’s border detention facilities in Texas showed hundreds of migrants, including many children, locked up in “pods” designed to at least give the appearance of trying to take the coronavirus pandemic seriously.
“Each of eight ‘pods’ in the so-called soft-sided facility has a 260-person occupancy, said Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas), who provided the photos to Axios to raise awareness about the situation,” Axios reported. “But as of Sunday, he said, one pod held more than 400 unaccompanied male minors.”
The facility that the photos were leaked from was the Rio Grande Valley Sector (RGV), which has reportedly started to release illegal aliens into the U.S. without a scheduled court date, according to Fox News and Axios. The New York Times has reported that the facilities that the migrant children have been kept in are “akin to jails” and that they have been subjected to “horrific conditions” that include “disease, hunger and overcrowding.”
