Walmart not housing immigrants for DHS

  • U.S. GovernmentA Walmart-turned-shelter houses almost 1,500 undocumented children

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. "I hope to produce the outrage and the public pressure to force those in power to do the right thing".

Hurd still opposes the Trump administrations policies saying, "If we have to separate kids from their parents, then we probably need to rethink our strategy on how we're securing our country".

A Texas immigration shelter housing unaccompanied minors has opened its doors to the public for the first time in the history of its operation amid intense interest after a USA senator was turned away from the facility. Ted Cruz again defended the Trump administration's controversial new policy of separating children from parents at the border, blaming migrants for putting their offspring in jeopardy and insisting that such tragedies also occurred in the Obama era. They don't need Democrats in order to change it.

The Tornillo site will take in 360 children in the coming days and expand from there, according to the department spokesperson.

The facility, known as Casa Padre, is the largest shelter facility in the USA for minors caught crossing the border illegally.

United States representative Will Hurd said the shelter near the Tornillo port of entry in far West Texas will house about 360 boys who are 16 and 17. "And the rest, 22 hours a day, they're inside a former Walmart". Democratic lawmakers and immigration law experts vehemently dispute that.

The details of the shelter are odd, and have been criticized by many on social media as seeming like they belong to a detention center rather than an institution meant to care for children.

While the majority of children at Casa Padre are kids who arrived at the border unaccompanied, it's estimated about 5 percent, or 70 boys, are living there because they were separated from their parents at the border.
