BROWNSVILLE, TEXAS(TIP): The Trump administration
 has selected Tornillo, Texas, for the construction of tents to house 
the overflow of immigrant children, many of whom have been separated 
from their parents under a new “zero tolerance” policy, according to 
three sources familiar with the decision.

The Department of Health and Human 
Services will erect a “tent city,” full of large tents whose walls touch
 the ground, that is estimated to hold 450 beds for children, say the 

It will not be the first time the U.S. 
government has erected tent cities to house immigrants. U.S. Customs and
 Border Protection used tents to house an influx of immigrants in 2014 
and at the end of the Obama administration. But now the overflow of a 
particular immigrant population — in this case, children — is a 
government-created problem.

The increase of children who are alone 
and in need of care at the border is the product of a new Trump 
administration policy that on May 7 began criminally prosecuting all 
adult migrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico
 border between ports of entry. As a result, the Department of Homeland 
Security separates any children traveling with those adults before 

One shelter in Brownsville, holding 
nearly 1,500 boys aged 10 to 17, opened its doors to reporters on 
Wednesday. NBC News was among the first to tour the facility, which 
closely resembled a jail and allows children outside for only two hours 
per day.

The overflow of children at HHS 
facilities has caused backup at border stations, the first stop for 
immigrants crossing into the United States.
 As of last week, over 570 unaccompanied children were in the custody of
 the U.S. Border Patrol, and nearly 300 of those had been held for more 
than 72 hours, the limit for holding an immigrant of any age at a border

Ron Vitiello, acting deputy commissioner
 of Customs and Border Protection, told MSNBC on Thursday that about 
1,500 immigrants are being arrested each day for crossing the border 
illegally. Vitiello said the policy is meant to deter families of 
immigrants from coming to the U.S.

“If you apply consequence to illegal 
activity you get less of it,” he said in defense of the policy. “They 
are only in these shelters long enough to be reunited with their family 
members. That’s the purpose of them.”

The facility in Brownsville is holding 
children for 52 days on average. They are sometimes sent to foster homes
 if relatives in the U.S. cannot be found.

Just confirmed with @ckubeNBC: @HHSGov 
has selected Tornillo Land Port of Entry near El Paso as the first 
temporary shelter location.

It will have 450 beds.Kids will sleep in tents.


“HHS is legally required to provide care
 and shelter for all unaccompanied alien children referred by [the 
Department of Homeland Security] and works in close coordination with DHS on the security and safety of the children and community,” a spokesman for HHS said in a statement.
