Images of an immigrant child detention center show the conditions in which almost 1,500 undocumented migrant boys were sheltered in Brownsville, Texas. In March, the nonprofit Southwest Key Programs, which also operates 26 other shelters in Texas, Arizona and California, had a capacity of 1,186, according to a licensing document posted in the shelter.

The details of the shelter are odd, and have been criticized by many on social media as seeming like they belong to a detention center rather than an institution meant to care for children. An extra bed has been added to each room, which means there are five bunks inside a 10 foot-by-24 foot space. Some other cases in 2016 in the Cameron County town reported that children had to sit down for four hours as a form of discipline, some others were slapped in the hands with a ruler.

"Sometimes by losing a battle you find a new way to win the war", is written on the wall, quoting a tweet from Trump two years before he became president.

Since the policy came into place in early May, stories of distressed children being pulled away from their parents have led to widespread criticism of the policy. "Our goal ultimately is to reunite kids with their families", Southwest Key's founder and CEO Juan Sanchez told the paper.

"When you see reporters, when you see Democrats saying, 'Don't separate kids from their parents, ' what they're really saying is don't arrest illegal aliens", Cruz said Monday.

The massive shelter retains a warehouse vibe - noisy but highly organized, with scores of staffers leading skeins of boys to various activities. The ability of the child to communicate with their parents depends on the regulations of the often federal penal institution at which their parents have been detained.
