Border Crisis: Texas Facility Meant for 250 People Has 4,100 Migrants

Border Crisis: Texas Facility Meant for 250 People Has 4,100 Migrants

Biden finally allowed the media into the Donna, TX, migrant holding facility. It’s over 1600% capacity.

President Joe Biden’s administration finally allowed the media inside a migrant holding facility in Donna, TX, meant to hold only 250 people.

The holding facility has 4,100 people, including 3,200 unaccompanied children.

We already know the facility has too many people, thanks to photos from lawmakers. But now the administration can no longer deny any problems.

Officials made the capacity 250 during the pandemic. Before the virus, the facility could only hold 1,000 people.

No matter what, the facility is way over its limit. The pods can only hold 32 people. Each one has 500-600 people.

The Associated Press detailed officials processing the children:

On Tuesday, journalists watched children being processed. They went into a small room for lice inspection and a health check. Their hair was hosed down and towels were tossed in a black bin marked “Lice.” The kids — many of whom have made long journeys to get to the border, including stretches on foot — were also checked for scabies, fever and other ailments. No COVID-19 test was administered unless a child showed symptoms.

Nurse practitioners also gave psychological tests, asking children if they had suicidal thoughts. All shoelaces were removed to avoid harm to anyone.

The children were then led down a green turf hall to a large intake room. Those 14 and older are fingerprinted and have their photo taken; younger children did not.

They went to a second intake room where they got notices to appear for immigration court. Border Patrol agents asked them if they had a contact in the U.S. and allowed the child to call that person.

Children were given bracelets with a barcode that shows a history of when they showered and medical conditions.

Send them all home. If they manage to hide where they’re from, drop them off on cape horn.

Donna “Potemkin” Migrant Processing Center.

Justice for Ashli Babbitt!

“Nurse practitioners also gave psychological tests, asking children if they had suicidal thoughts.”

“Sure, lady, I walked all the way from El Salvador so I could cross the border and then off myself.”

Those sure look like cages to me…
