Arizona to Inspect Location Holding Migrant Children

June 12, 2014
 

The Arizona Attorney General's Office will soon inspect detention centers in southern Arizona, where hundreds of migrant children are being housed.

The federal government last Friday began sending hundreds of unaccompanied children caught crossing the border illegally in Texas to a holding center in Nogales, Ariz., further straining relations with Gov. Jan Brewer, and other elected leaders already angry and frustrated over the recent release of hundreds of undocumented families at bus stations in Phoenix and Tucson.

At least 750 children were transported to a holding facility in Nogales last weekend.
