The details: This image was captured on June 19 by Planet Labs and first published by Humans Rights Watch, just nine days after the camp was originally erected.

The big picture: This is just one of the more than 100 facilities holding migrant children across the United States. According to the Washington Post, the federal government is responsible for the care of more than 11,000 migrant children — including the 2,500 who have been separated from their parents. It's still unclear when these children will be reunited with their families.

What to watch: On Wednesday, the Department of Health and Human Services requested that the Pentagon house 20,000 migrant children from July to the end of the year on military bases. Meanwhile, the federal government currently has just 3,326 beds for detained families, per Politico. There were at least 9,485 family members arrested in May.
