Children taken from their undocumented parents will soon be living in tent cities along the Texas-Mexico border, including Tornillo, about 40 miles east of El Paso. The Tornillo facility is one of several to house nearly 2,000 children separated from their parents as a result of a “zero tolerance” policy on border enforcement announced by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions in April.

Temperatures in Tornillo are expected to climb to 105 degrees or higher by the end of this week.
