Interest in the temporary Dalla migrant holding facility is on the rise with Senator Ted Cruz set to visit the center soon according to a Fox 4 article from March 29th. In it they say:
“Sen. Ted Cruz will visit the migrant holding facility in Downtown Dallas Monday. He and other Republicans continue to hammer the Biden Administration for its handling of the border crisis. The White House said it’s working quickly to counter worsening issues there. Sen. Cruz shared video Sunday of a crowded facility at the border where migrants including young children are being kept very close together. Last week, Cruz and other Republicans toured the intake center in Donna, just outside McAllen.”
This is after the senator visited the southern border with other fellow republicans according to a CBS 11 DFW article from March 28th. In it they say:
“The Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center is currently housing around 2,300 teen boys as the federal government responds to a surge in migrants illegally crossing the southern border into the U.S. Similar facilities have been set up around Texas in areas such as Midland and Carrizo Springs.
On Friday, Cruz and other U.S. senators, including John Cornyn, Chuck Grassley and Lindsey Graham, toured the southern border to witness the surge and check on the conditions of holding facilities.”
As more and more unaccompanied migrant youths arrive at the center, interest and concern are growing over the conditions there.
