White House Defends Opening Migrant Processing Center For Children


The White House is defending its decision to open a facility in Texas to house migrant children who crossed the U.S. border without their parents. Press Secretary Jen Psaki says the "revamped" temporary facility in Carrizo Springs will include medical support and teachers. The goal is to transfer children to this expanded facility until they can be vetted and placed with a family. The facility is capable of holding up to 700 migrant children, but it's unclear how long the administration plans to keep it open.
