Migrant children have begun to arrive in Dallas where they will be temporarily sheltered at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center according to a CBS 21 DFW article from March 17th. In it they say:
“Hundreds of migrant teens have apparently begun arriving in North Texas and the big question is how the federal government will keep them safe.
The Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in downtown Dallas is opening as a temporary shelter.
Shortly after 10:00 p.m. Wednesday, March 17, several charter buses pulled up outside the convention center.
They are believed to be carrying the young men who were detained at the southern border.”
The move is in response to the overwhelming number of migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border according to a CNN article from March 19th. In it they say:
“The federal government has more than 14,000 migrant children in its custody, administration officials said Thursday, even as they insist that what is happening on the southern border does not constitute a crisis.
