Walmart not housing immigrants for DHS

U.S. Government Almost 1,500 undocumented children are at a Walmart-turned-shelter

U.S. Government Almost 1,500 undocumented children are at a Walmart-turned-shelter

The teens began arriving on Friday, the same day Hurd toured the shelter, he said, noting that the boys were being moved from other shelters to make way for younger immigrant children taken into custody at the border.

Beto O'Rourke on Sunday railed against the Trump administration separating children from parents at the border, but said responsibility for what is happening is on everyone.

Two weeks ago, Senator Jeff Merkley, Democrat of OR, was denied access to the former Walmart Super center where detained migrant children were held.

Kennedy and O'Rouke, who is running to unseat Senator Ted Cruz, Republican of Texas, this November, are two of at least a dozen Democratic lawmakers who fanned out across the country Sunday to protest Trump's "zero tolerance" policy that separated almost 2,000 children from their parents in just six weeks. Casa Padre is the largest licensed childcare facility in the country which is run by trained staff by a nonprofit organization, Southwest Key. Officials said there are 200 kids inside now, but at capacity it can hold up to 4,000 children.

The former superstore stretches across 250,000 square feet, but the bedrooms for the children housed there are tightly packed. An extra bed has been added to each room, which means there are five bunks inside a 10 foot-by-24 foot space. The innocent children are incarcerated 22 hours a day, let outside for two. Though the rooms were originally created to accommodate only four children, a fifth roommate, who spends his nights on a cot, has been added as the shelter takes in more children. The facility also offers video games and pool tables for recreation.

Comcast Attempts to Outbid Disney For Fox
It has been reported though that Fox execs are still leaning towards Disney and have asked their shareholders to do the same. Roberts said in his letter that a merger with Comcast has just as good of a chance of getting regulatory approval.

Protests have taken place across the USA, many organized by the group "Families Belong Together" which aims to draw attention to the policy and change attitudes.

Presidential mural are everywhere, but Trump's is first. He shared images of the mural, which includes the quotation, "Sometimes by losing a battle you find a new way to win the war". "We're not a detention center. what we operate are shelters that take care of kids". On Wednesday, reporters were allowed a rare glimpse inside.

"We don't want kids to be separated from their parents", said House Speaker Paul Ryan, as quoted by the Associated Press. "Our goal ultimately is to reunite kids with their families", Southwest Key's founder and CEO Juan Sanchez told the paper.

The Trump administration is facing mounting outrage over its decision to systematically bring criminal charges against undocumented immigrants detained at the border, which forces them into federal prisons where children can not stay.
