U.S. Border Patrol Separated Migrant Children From Parents to Avoid Overcrowding

U.S. Border Patrol agents separated migrant children as young as 8 from their parents this summer to alleviate overcrowding at a temporary holding facility. A federal court monitor discovered these separations during visits to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection tent facility in Donna, Texas, in August. The children were placed in a separate section of the facility and were not informed of any procedures to request visits with their parents, raising concerns about the potential psychological impact of these separations.
