Top Story – Tornillo detention camp, now holding 2,300 children

From Las Vegas Review Journal:

The Trump administration announced in June it would open a temporary shelter for up to 360 migrant children in this isolated corner of the Texas desert. Less than six months later, the facility has expanded into a detention camp holding thousands of teenagers — and it shows every sign of becoming more permanent.

By Tuesday, 2,324 boys and girls between the ages of 13 and 17, largely from Central America, were sleeping inside the highly-guarded facility in rows of bunk beds in canvas tents, some of which once housed first responders to Hurricane Harvey. More than 1,300 teens have arrived since the end of October alone.
