President Trump’s widely-criticized “zero-tolerance” immigration policy resulted in U.S. Border Patrol holding hundreds of children longer than they were supposed to, often in holding pens without beds or showers, according to a new Department of Homeland Security (DHS) watchdog report obtained by The Washington Post.

The policy, which the Trump administration approved in May and halted by executive order in June, created widespread miscommunication and confusion among various federal agencies, the DHS inspector general wrote in an unpublished report, according to the Post.

The article goes on to state the following:

Though Border Patrol is only supposed to hold children for 72 hours, officials in the Rio Grande and El Paso sectors held a total of more than 800 children for far longer, with some children stuck in detainment for more than 20 days, the Post reported.
