A shelter for migrant teenage girls with capacity for 500 children that opened at the beginning of April is being shut down after a volunteer died there. The center which supposedly had the capacity to shelter 500 unaccompanied girls was forced to find other arrangements for the 450 girls currently housed at the facility. the National Association of Christian Churches in Houston was in charge of running the center.

Journalist Lomi Kriel wrote about the conditions and the death of the volunteer. The center was closed shortly after it opened. HHS officials reunited 130 of the girls to their families who were separated by the Biden administration. Were they snatched out of the arms of the parents like the Democrats and media accused President Trump of doing? The rest were sent to other detention centers.

KTRK-TV reported on a press conference held Saturday afternoon by an activist group that said the facility was unfit for children (excerpt):

Representatives from local non-profit, FIEL Houston, held a press conference Saturday afternoon and exposed the conditions of the facility.

Executive director of FIEL, Ceaser Espinosa, said the conditions inside the warehouse were ‘inappropriate for anyone, especially young girls’, who range in age from 13-17 years old. He added that employees of the facility would only let the teens get out of their cots a few times a day to shower and use the restroom.

Fiel member Alan Cisnero said while he was out with his family on Friday night, he noticed a large amount of first responders arriving to the facility. He said he then proceeded to see what the issue was, however officials told him they couldn’t share much information regarding who was involved in the incident.

Espinosa added that the facility actually had 500 girls on roster at the time of Friday night’s incident, meaning they were right at capacity. Due to the amount of girls, he said they were unable to properly social distance inside the warehouse.

This is just another example of just how poorly run the Biden administration facilities are after Biden opened the border for all. And where is Kamala Harris who was assigned the job of overseeing the border?
