Migrant children across America under the cover of night taken to a tent camp in Texas

Currently, children are divided into groups in tents by 20 people. They sleep in bunk beds and do not receive any education and minimal access to legal services, the newspaper reported, adding that in private shelters and orphanages children slept two or three people in a room, received official education and were regularly visited by legal representatives.

The New York Times reported that these actions are part of a “massive reshuffle” of migrant children throughout the country, as their number has grown under the leadership of President Trump. Thousands of migrant families were separated earlier this year as a result of Trump's "zero tolerance" immigration policy. Earlier, the newspaper reported that the number of migrant children in the federal order increased from 2400 in May 2017 year to a record 12800 this month.

The facility in Tornillo was reportedly opened in June with a capacity of 450 seats and had to work for 30 days. But now it is expected that it will remain open, at least until the end of the year. The number of places there has increased to 3800.

“Typically, temporary shelters like this are created during times of surge, as has happened on military bases in the past, and these temporary facilities will only be used as long as needed,” Evelyn Stauffer, a spokeswoman for the Department of Health and Human Services, told the Times. services (HHS).

Staufffer added that the massive influx of migrant children is the result of a “broken immigration system.”

“The number of families and unaccompanied children is the result of a 'broken' immigration system,” Stauffer said. “Their age and the dangerous journey they make make unaccompanied children vulnerable to trafficking, exploitation and abuse. That's why HHS joins the President in calling on Congress to reform this system."

Recall that Texas will not allow schools to use government funding to educate immigrant children while they are in federal custody — something that would have cost millions of dollars, according to a Texas Education Agency (TEA).
