This isn't the question we should be asking.

One thing that freaking concerns me about the description of the inside of these temporary tents: guard towers. Guard towers?

They ALSO have 24 hour surveillance equipment, but sure, prison it up, @CBP. 🤬

@CBP Pictures, fam!

For some reason (prolly cuz there aren't any immigrants there yet) CBP let media types have a look around their New Giant Tent at the Donna, Texas POE, where they can detain up to 500 people--mostly families & unaccompanied minors.

@CBP @JeffMerkley @nytimes @ifindkarma @axidentaliberal @lfkraus @jomareewade @maydaymindy9 @TheLoyalO @ImmJusticeNOW @LiteraryMouse @TrinityResists @TrisResists The cavernous facility is air conditioned, which is nice--for people who like A/C. The majority of the folks there will be Central Americans. POOR Central Americans. How used to A/C you think they are?

You think there's a reason they called CBP holding the "ice box"? 🤔
