100 migrant children returned to "inhumane" Texas facility
Camilo Montoya-Galvez CBSN News
Border Patrol on Tuesday returned 100 migrant children to an overcrowded facility in Clint, Texas, which lawyers have recently denounced for its "inhumane" conditions, a Customs and Border Protection (CBP) official told CBS News.
The Border Patrol facility, located in the outskirts of El Paso, has come under scrutiny after independent monitors reported learning of unsanitary, crowded living conditions for as many as 350 detained minors.
According to the attorneys who inspected the facility, older children were taking care of the younger ones. Some young mothers had to wear clothes stained with breast milk. The children also did not have access to soap and toothbrushes, and most had not showered since they crossed the southern border.
"It is degrading and inhumane and shouldn't be happening in America," Elora Mukherjee, one of the lawyers told CBS News Monday. "The children had not had access to a single shower or bath, they were wearing the same dirty clothing they crossed the border with.

Border Patrol, which is overseen by CBP, came under widespread pressure to transfer the young detainees into the care of the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), an agency within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) responsible for the care of unaccompanied migrant minors in U.S. custody. These children usually remain in HHS custody until a sponsor is found for them.
Border Patrol officers, who are typically the first ones to encounter migrants near the border, are supposed to transfer unaccompanied minors to HHS within three days. Its facilities — like the one in Clint — are not designed to house children.
ORR confirmed to CBS News on Tuesday that 249 of the roughly 350 children held at Clint were moved to its facilities. However, the other children were transferred to other Border Patrol facilities, before ultimately being sent back.

CBS News asked Border Patrol why the children were returned. The agency has not yet responded, but said more details may be coming.
In recent weeks, HHS has been warning that it is running out of bed space and funds to properly take care of migrant children. The agency is asking for $2.88 billion in emergency funding to increase capacity in children shelters.
An HHS official said the agency is facing a "spike" in referrals of unaccompanied minors, with more than 52,000 children transferred to ORR custody this fiscal year.
Earlier this month, citing a "tremendous strain" on the agency, the department moved to shut down all educational, recreational and legal services offered to migrant children in U.S. custody.
The move is expected to end legal assistance, ESL classes, soccer games and other activities. HHS is also preparing to open a new shelter in south Texas and is inspecting several military bases to potentially house more children.
Advanced Russian warship armed with cruise missiles docks in Havana's harborFoxNews.com
One of the Russian Navy’s most advanced warships has docked at a port in Havana’s harbor.
Armed with cruise missiles, air deference systems and other weapons, the Admiral Gorshkov -- which pulled into Cuba's capital Monday -- is the first ship in a new class of frigates intended to replace aging Soviet-era destroyers to project power far away from Russian shores.
It is accompanied by the multifunctional logistics vessel Elbrus, the medium sea tanker Kama and the rescue tug Nikolai Chiker, the Russian Navy says.
The naval group was greeted with a 21-gun salute from Cuban forces stationed at the entrance to the Bay of Havana. The Gorshkov -- which entered service last year -- responded with its own salute.
As U.S.-Russian relations have sunk to some of the lowest levels since the Cold War, Moscow has been considering further steps to boost its global presence. An air base and a naval facility in Syria are currently Russia's only military outposts outside the former Soviet Union but Russian military officials have talked repeatedly about plans to negotiate deals for Russian warships and aircraft to use foreign ports and air bases.
Russia's armed forces have received hundreds of new warplanes and dozens of warships in recent years as part of a sweeping military modernization program.
The Admiral Gorshov -- following its stop in Cuba -- is scheduled to make calls at several more Caribbean ports, Russia's Navy said, without elaborating.
Joe Biden is calling for legislation to compel Americans to use guns that recognize DNA and fingerprints.
There's just one problem. They don't exist in real life.
Biden appears to be describing a combination of two fictional guns reported in, of all places, the Kremlin-controlled "Russia Today." And the Stallone movie, "Judge Dredd."
