Migrant Children Remain in CBP Custody: Acting DHS Chief

Migrant Children Remain in CBP Custody: Acting DHS Chief”

A general view of the US-Mexico border in San Diego, California.

Acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan said he did not accept reports of unsanitary conditions and limited food and water at U.S. Border Patrol stations, calling the situation at the border "extraordinarily challenging" for the department, in an interview on ABC's "This Week" Sunday.

In a statement, the Pentagon said they had been asked to authorize the Texas National Guard to lend support to Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials, who say they are overwhelmed by the numbers of refugees crossing the southern United States border.

McAleenan also didn't wouldn't say whether he expects to be officially nominated as DHS head, saying "I'm focused on solving the problems that we're facing right now - addressing this humanitarian and security crisis at our border and supporting the men and women".

In a statement, the Pentagon said they had been asked to authorise the Texas National Guard to lend support to Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials, who say they are overwhelmed by the numbers of refugees crossing the southern U.S. border. "These holding facilities will be owned, operated, and managed by CBP".

Texas Governor Greg Abbott has agreed to this measure, while the Department of Defence has not yet approved the request, which was made last week, according to CNN.

Most single adults had not had a shower in a month and were being given wet wipes.

The roughly 1,000-member group - called "The Real CBP Nation" - was found to host to an image that mocks separating migrant families, multiple demeaning images of New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other mocking photos of minorities.

"They put them in a room with no running water and these women were being told by CBP officers to drink out of the toilet", she said upon returning to NY.

The additional 1,000 National Guard members would be a major boost to President Trump's policing of the USA southern border.
