100 migrant children moved to Clint, Texas border patrol facility dogged by allegations that it was housing minors without providing adequate food or access to soap and toothpaste, CBP official says. https://nbcnews.to/2N9jUdI
Almost 300 migrant children had been removed from the facility after reports chronicling its conditions were published in recent days. Lawyers who visited the facility described "appalling" and potentially dangerous conditions. http://nbcnews.to/2N9jUdI
Amid outcry over the conditions, children were taken to a tent detention camp in El Paso. Roughly 30 remained at the Clint facility.
CBP then transported new group of about 100 kids to the Clint site Tuesday because other facilities were stretched past capacity, official says.
