US Military Bases Could House Up to 20,000 Migrant Kids
Four American military bases in Texas and Arkansas could soon house as many as 20,000 migrant children, according to the Pentagon, although it was unclear if they would also accept adults. The move follows President Donald Trump’s reversal of his controversial family separation policy. Attorneys are now struggling to reunite over 2,300 children who have been separated from their parents since May 5. Meanwhile, a human rights group is suing the administration, claiming that detained children are being forcibly given psychotropic drugs to manage their trauma.
