An exclusive post reveals the "crowded and makeshift" conditions at an overflow facility housing migrants in Donna, Texas.

There are pods with a maximum occupancy of 260 people, but at least one of them was overcrowded with 400 male children according to Rep. Henry Cuellar, a Texas Democrat.

Exclusive photos from inside a U.S. Customs and Border Protection temporary overflow facility in Donna, Texas, reveal the crowded, makeshift conditions at the border as the government's longer-term child shelters and family detention centers fill up.

This is becoming a controversy because not only are the facilities filling up and causing a concern, but Biden's administration was recently slammed for not allowing reporters to go inside and see what's going on, preventing transparency that many Americans desire.

A bit more info from Axios:

Why it matters: Each of eight "pods" in the so-called soft-sided facility has a 260-person occupancy, said Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas), who provided the photos to Axios to raise awareness about the situation. But as of Sunday, he said, one pod held more than 400 unaccompanied male minors.
  • Because the Biden administration has restricted media coverage at housing facilities, images like these offer a rare window into conditions.
  • Cuellar, who recently visited a shelter for children, did not tour the Donna facility or take the photos himself. He said the photos were taken over the weekend.
What they're saying: Cuellar described the setting as "terrible conditions for the children" and said they need to be moved more rapidly into the care of the Department of Health and Human Services.

Now what?
