Inside a Texas Building Where the Government Is Holding Immigrant Children

Hundreds of immigrant children who have been separated from their parents or family members are being held in dirty, neglectful, and dangerous conditions at Border Patrol facilities in Texas. This week, a team of lawyers interviewed more than fifty children at one of those facilities, in Clint, Texas, in order to monitor government compliance with the Flores settlement, which mandates that children must be held in safe and sanitary conditions and moved out of Border Patrol custody without unnecessary delays. The conditions the lawyers found were shocking: flu and lice outbreaks were going untreated, and children were filthy, sleeping on cold floors, and taking care of each other because of the lack of attention from guards. Some of them had been in the facility for weeks.

To discuss what the attorneys saw and heard, I spoke by phone with one of them, Warren Binford, a law professor at Willamette University and the director of its clinical-law program. She told me that, although Flores is an active court case, some of the lawyers were so disturbed by what they saw that they decided to talk to the media. We discussed the daily lives of the children in custody, the role that the guards are playing at the facility, and what should be done to unite many of these kids with their parents. Our conversation has been edited for length and clarity

I have seen excerpts, but not the entire interview. This is horrible.

7. This actually gives me hope that

Some people are doing something. Iím glad to know lawyers looking into the concentration camps are involved. And doubly so that they feel compelled to talk to the media about it.

8. I bet they start shaving heads soon to control the lice outbreak.

I doubt little girls will be spared. Getting rid of lice involves more than just shampooing. The nits have to be picked out as well.
