U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced it will return to detaining migrant families at a Texas facility southeast of San Antonio.
In a statement to Fox News, ICE said: “U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) will revert the Karnes County Detention Center (KCDC) back to a family residential center in the near future. The facility has been recently used to house adult women. Additional intake at the facility has been temporarily suspended. During the transition back to housing families, those detainees at KCDC may be transferred to other detention facilities.”
The article goes on to state the following:
The facility had stopped housing migrant families after an uptick in border crossings, which have since dropped, The Washington Post reported.
The Karnes County usually detained families before an initial screening to judge whether they qualified for asylum. The facility holds up to 800 parents and children.
The center is surrounded by 15-foot fences and has security cameras. It also features a variety of classes, a library, TVs, and an artificial turf soccer field.
Families usually spend up to a week in the facility, until they pass a screening for asylum. They are then released into the community with a court date to see an immigration judge.
