Donna, Texas lies about 50 minutes East of Brownsville. It's also an hour and ten minutes East, not to mention a world away, from the Spring Break locale of South Padre Island.

Donna is home to a new tent city for housing unaccompanied minors and migrant families crossing the Southern border. It's meant to be a short-term facility--holding folks for no more than 72 hours.
