Donald Trump’s administration plans to build tent cities to house migrant children.
The population of children in custody has increased because of the new Trump administration policy of prosecuting immigrants crossing the border. The prosecutions trigger the separation of families from one another.
The Trump administration plans to build tents to house immigrant children on military bases.
The first tent city may be erected at Fort Bliss in El Paso, Texas. The tent city would hold between 1,000 to 5,000 children.
Dyess Air Force Base in Abilene and Goodfellow AFB in San Angelo may also be sites of the tent cities.
El Paso County Sheriff Richard Wiles has barred his deputies from working on the tent cities.
