From Texas Public Radio:
Giant tent structures have been erected in Texas to serve as short-term detention facilities to process a huge influx of families and unaccompanied minors from Central America arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border.
The facilities are open Friday in El Paso, Texas, and in the state’s Rio Grande Valley next to the Donna-Rio Bravo International Bridge.
Across the southern border, more than 103,000 migrants were taken into custody in March — the biggest monthly total in more than a decade. The Rio Grande Valley is the busiest sector. The Border Patrol reported apprehending more than 30,000 migrants in March in its Rio Grande Valley sector.
