In just six months, the Trump administration has built a detention camp for migrant kids in the Texas desert that is larger than 203 of the 204 U.S. federal prisons.
Driving the news: The Tornillo camp now holds 2,324 boys and girls, most from Central America, between the ages of 13-17, the AP reports.
Why it matters: "Confining and caring for so many children is a challenge. By day, minders walk the teen detainees to their meals, showers and recreation on the arid plot of land guarded by multiple levels of security. At night the area around the camp, that’s grown from a few dozen to more than 150 tents, is secured and lit up by flood lights."
Between the lines: Among the list of issues at Tornillo discovered by an AP investigation:
The big picture: The Trump administration is struggling to care for a record number of migrant minors in its custody, it has sent troops to the border and launched tear gas at migrants seeking to illegally cross the border, it's working deals with Mexico and continues to battle the courts over executive actions to curb immigration, Axios' Stef Kight reports.
The bottom line: There are more than 14,000 migrant children in U.S. detention, most from central America. Figuring out what to do with these kids is a challenge that doesn't seem to be going away.
