New Tent Camps Go Up In West Texas For Migrant Children Separated From Parents

The U.S./Mexico border fence from the U.S. side is seen on June 19, 2018 in El Paso, Texas. The Trump administration is enforcing a policy of zero tolerance in which immigrant children are separated from their parents after they are caught entering the U.S. With the number of immigrant children separated from their parents reaching nearly 2,000, this small town in far west Texas is preparing for young Central Americans who will be housed in a temporary shelter on the border with Mexico. White tents are visible at the Tornillo-Marcelino Serna Port of Entry, about a 30-minute drive southeast from El Paso. An initial 360 are expected immediately, with a capacity for hundreds more. By Saturday, dozens of unaccompanied minors were already inside the white tents, confirmed Texas state Democrat Rep. Mary González, whose district includes the Tornillo area. The shelter was last used in 2016 when a surge of Central Americans — migrant children and families — were housed here. (Footage by Joe Raedle / Getty Images)
