In the blaring sun, at least nine Democratic presidential candidates have stood on stepladders this week to peer into a migrant detention center where approximately 2,600 teenagers are being held, reports Axios' Alexi McCammond from Homestead, Fla.
What it's like to be there:
People are there before and after candidates visit and the circus that follows them dies down. Many of those Alexi talked to — some still in college, some as old as 80 — said things like: "It just felt bad not doing anything about this, so I had to come."
The state of play: Today saw visits from Kamala Harris, Pete Buttigieg, Julián Castro, Kirsten Gillibrand, John Hickenlooper and Marianne Williamson.
What they're saying: "What the hell are they hiding?" asked Castro, who has visited several times. "We were stonewalled today by an administration and a private contractor who does not want us to see what's behind those walls."

The U.S. Treasury yield curve has now been inverted for more than a month — meaning the 3-month bill is paying a higher interest rate than the 10-year note, reports Axios Markets editor Dion Rabouin.
