Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas Now at Half Capacity

The Kay Bailey Hutchison will be housing up to 3,000 migrant teens according to a Fox News article from March 15th. In it they say:

“The U.S. government plans to use the downtown Dallas convention center to hold up to 3,000 immigrant teenagers as sharply higher numbers of border crossings have severely strained the current capacity to hold youths, according to a memo obtained by The Associated Press.

The Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center will be used for up to 90 days beginning as early as this week, according to written notification sent to members of the Dallas City Council on Monday. Federal agencies will use the facility to house boys ages 15 to 17, according to the memo, which describes the soon-to-open site as a ‘decompression center.’ “

Since then, the center has now hit half capacity according to a Fox 4 KDFW article from March 22nd. In it they say:

“There are now 1,500 unaccompanied minors staying at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas after being apprehended at the southern border. Migration experts said they could be here up to 45 days, before being paired with family. The surge of unaccompanied children at the border is showing no sign of slowing down. Customs and Border Protection said more than 9,400 came in February.”

The rate at which the center is filling up illustrates the gravity of congestion currently at the border.
