The Trump administration is considering sheltering migrant children on military bases in Texas and Arkansas, according to a report in The Washington Post.
Why it matters: While the Obama administration sheltered kids — who often arrived unaccompanied, per Vox — on military bases during the 2014 child migrant crisis, this news comes after Trump's DHS signaled its intention to separate families who illegally cross the border.
