New photographs released by Democratic Texas Rep. Henry Cuellar provide a chilling first look inside the detention centers that the Biden administration has been desperately attempting to conceal.
The photographs, obtained by Axios, show a deteriorating situation inside the detention centers, as the border remains overburdened as a result of Biden’s reversal of Trump policies.

The migrants are huddled together in conditions that make social distance nearly impossible. On Friday, Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced that 10% of migrants at the Midland and Carrizo Springs detention centers tested positive for COVID-19.
Officials told Fox News in early March that “more than 100 illegal immigrants released by the Border Patrol into Texas since late January have tested positive for the coronavirus following their arrival.” The White House disputes the accuracy of the reports.
Migrants are crammed into uncomfortably close quarters with little to no privacy. Everyone can understand why minors were detained separately from adults during the Trump administration.
It’s a scene that makes one’s heart break. Despite the administration’s denials, the policies of the Biden administration are fueling an increase in border crossings and unaccompanied minors entering the United States.
According to the most recently released agency data, the number of migrant family members caught crossing the southwest border more than doubled between January and February, increasing from 7,000 to nearly 19,000, according to Axios.
