Photos show migrants being held in overcrowded cages

The disturbing conditions were uncovered last month when Department of Homeland Security inspectors visited multiple holding facilities in Rio Grande Valley, Texas.

The photos showing migrants in detention were included in a report written by the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Inspector General that was made public on Tuesday.

The inspectors reported serious overcrowding at the facilities and prolonged detention of unaccompanied children, families and single adults.
