Biden’s Detention Cages for Migrant Children on Border

Mar 22, 2021 by

Rep. Cuellar (D) leaked photos to Axios showing the deplorable, overcrowded conditions of migrant children being held in South Texas.

U.S. Representative Henry Cuellar (D-TX) released a series of leaked photos to Axios showing the deplorable, overcrowded conditions of migrant children being held in South Texas. A short time later, James O’Keefe released additional disturbing photos depicting children having to sleep on floor mats in overcrowded facilities which were rapidly opened amid a worsening humanitarian crisis.

Congressman Cuellar, who lives along the Texas border with Mexico, told Axios these unaccompanied migrant children are living in eight “pods” designed to hold up to 260 people. However, Border Patrol officials are actually holding more than 400 unaccompanied male minors in the spaces, the Texas congressman said.

The Biden Administration has not allowed news media or Members of Congress to photograph the conditions under which these migrant children are being held.

Cuellar recently visited the facility, but did not take the photos. He said the images were captured over the past weekend.

Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe released additional photographs and video leaked from inside Border Patrol facilities where up to 3,000 unaccompanied migrant minors are being held — often well beyond the 72-hour legal holding limit for minors.

During the Obama/Biden administration in June 2014, Breitbart Texas’ Brandon Darby released leaked photos showing the deplorable conditions where children were being locked in jail cells — often packed shoulder-to-shoulder. The following photos are from that 2014 Breitbart Texas article.
