Democratic outrage grows over conditions at border detention centers | TheHill

Democratic anger over the conditions faced by immigrants detained at the border grew Tuesday, a day after a group of lawmakers visited some of the most controversial shelters in Texas.

Congressional Hispanic Caucus Chairman Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Texas) tweeted photos and videos of Monday’s visit by 14 lawmakers to a facility in Clint, Texas. He said the photos underlined concerns that the centers are overcrowded and those held face inhumane conditions.

In some of Castro’s photos, women could be seen sitting on the floor, with one saying she was denied medicine and another saying her daughter had been taken from her.
