Rep. Beto O'Rourke rallies outside immigrant facility

The government released video on Thursday, showing the inside of a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) facility that's sheltering children who entered the country illegally. The children are only allowed two hours a day for outdoor activities and spend the rest of their days inside a former Walmart. People at the Brownsville facility indicated that most children there are able to have some communication with their parents. And it is on all of us, not just the Trump administration.

A Republican congressman from Texas who toured a tent-like shelter for hundreds of minors who entered the country illegally said on Saturday the facility is a byproduct of a flawed immigration strategy.

Civil rights advocates denounced Arpaio's 2,000-bed tent city in South Phoenix as inhumane and humiliating to house inmates in Arizona's blistering 110-plus F heat. According to data collected by The New York Times, more than 700 children have been separated from their parents or guardians since October, including more than 100 children under the age of four.

Beto O'Rourke on Sunday railed against the Trump administration separating children from parents at the border, but said responsibility for what is happening is on everyone.

The reporter observed that almost every room in the facility was housing multiple children, despite it being constructed to house four.

'A dream come true': First Saudi women receive drivers licenses
On Saturday, the Saudi government "temporarily" released eight activists who were arrested in May for protesting against the ban. While Saudi law has never explicitly banned women from driving, women were not issued with driving licences.

HHS is tasked with caring for "unaccompanied alien children", which by law is any minor that arrives at the border without parents or relatives, or for whom loved ones were not "available to provide care and physical custody". Vitiello said the policy is meant to deter families of immigrants from coming to the U.S. And it's also reminding advocates of former Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff Joe Arpaio's "Tent City Jail" in Phoenix. Center officials initially said they'd call the police on the visitors, but eventually allowed in the delegation.

But they came over the border unaccompanied, were not separated from parents, tended to be older and were held in permanent structures.

"When it changed hands, we didn't know it was going to be used for", Randy Hargrove, Walmart spokesman, said.

"This is a symptom of a flawed strategy and in the land of the free and home of the fearless we shouldn't use kids as deterrence", said Hurd, who represents a vast border district that includes the port of entry.
