Almost 250 migrant children who were held at a Customs and Border Protection facility in Clint, Texas, will be shifted into the Department of Health and Human Services' shelter system by Tuesday following reports of poor conditions at the facility. U.S. Customs and Border Protection has told a Texas congresswoman Monday, June 24, that the agency is quickly removing children from the patrol station following reports that children locked inside were in a perilous situation.
The agency said it had moved children to more suitable facilities as soon as space was available.
Children not sent to the HHS shelters were being moved to a tent facility designed for family detention, Ms Lopez-Sandoval said.
Gialluca said the migrants, all from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador, told her they aren't receiving proper medical care and children don't have enough clean clothes.
Binford was so troubled by what she saw inside the facility that she went to the press.
"(Unaccompanied children) are waiting too long in CBP facilities that are not created to care for children", the Office of Refugee Resettlement told the Associated Press.
"Many of the kids in the Clint facility are too young to wash or feed themselves, yet they are left to fend for themselves with the help of related older children", said Clara Long, a senior researcher at HRW.
A temporary facility set up to hold immigrants is pictured at a US Border Patrol Station in Clint, Texas.

FedEx blames ‘operational error’ for not delivering Huawei phone to US
Other reports also say that because of the incident, China is now contemplating on putting FedEx on its own blacklist. A company spokeswoman confirmed that the package was USA bound but declined to say what it contained.
Hundreds of migrant children have been reportedly transferred out of a Texas facility, which lawyers have described as having "inhumane conditions", following an uproar over their treatment. According to Binford, the child seemed desperate to be held and not put down.
"One of the combs was lost, and Border Patrol agents got so mad that they took away the children's blankets and mats".
Yet the US Government Accountability Office has reported that neither the Department of Homeland Security nor the Department of Health and Human Services were aware of the policy before it was publicly announced, and so were not prepared for the increase in children being kept imprisoned.
"There is a stench", said Elora Mukherjee, director of the Immigrants' Rights Clinic at Columbia Law School, one of the lawyers who visited the facility.
She said both the mother and premature baby were caked in dirt.
"Carrying out all these affairs did not come cheap - Hunter spent thousands of dollars treating women to meals, drinks, and vacations, and traveling to and from their homes", prosecutors said, The Daily Beast reports.
Weekend Edition Sunday host Lulu Garcia-Navarro said Binford visited two of those centers and "spoke with children there".
