In Photos: Detained Children Housed in Tents

Twenty miles outside of El Paso, Texas, along the U.S.-Mexico border, sits the Tornillo Port of Entry, a U.S. Customs and Border Protection facility which was selected by the Trump administration to be the first site for temporary housing for the overflow of unaccompanied minors and the children of detained migrant parents, under the new “zero-tolerance” policy.

From immigrant children, many of whom have been separated from their parents under a new “zero-tolerance” policy by the Trump administration who are being housed in tents next to the Mexican border to a metal fence that lies adjacent to the United States border near the Tornillo Port of Entry, these pictures will give you thrills.

    if you think this is bad go and look at what our troops are living in. they have A/C and lots of other amenities that most American children living in poverty will never have, and many of these children are trying to cross the border without their parents we cant just release them without a parent or adult relative to take them. but as long as the media continues on their hate anything President Trump does you will never get the whole story only what they want you to hear. Never mind that under Obama the same thing happened but there were even more children separated from their parents but because he was a democrat it was ok and the media never said a thing about it.
