Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) Shares Photographs of Child Detention Center

Head over to Axios to see photos shared (but not taken) by Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas) of the crowded conditions facing child migrants in a Border Patrol tent camp in Donna, Texas. You'll see lots of those emergency blankets made out of mylar, along with grey sleeping pads on the floor.

Apparently USBP has set up "pods" in soft-sided tents. Each is supposed to hold 260 migrants, but, over the weekend, one held more than 400.

Sharing of these photos is particularly important in light of reporter complaints about access to detention facilities.
