James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas released new leaked photos from inside a border detention facility in Donna, Texas, that show hundreds of migrants sleeping on the floor with little space in between them despite the ongoing pandemic.
“These photos were taken within the last few days,” a source told Project Veritas. “There are eight pods with eight cells each in the facility. At any given moment there are an average of 3,000 people in custody here.”
“They [migrants] are separated by age or physical size depending on room,” the source said. “Fifty were COVID positive in these cells over the last few days.” O’Keefe also claims that he has received reports of “multiple sexual assaults, normal assaults and daily medical emergencies.”
“Each of eight ‘pods’ in the so-called soft-sided facility has a 260-person occupancy, said Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas), who provided the photos to Axios to raise awareness about the situation,” Axios reported separately on Monday morning.
“But as of Sunday, he said, one pod held more than 400 unaccompanied male minors.”
The facility that the photos were leaked from was the Rio Grande Valley Sector (RGV), which has reportedly started to release illegal aliens into the U.S. without a scheduled court date, according to Fox News and Axios.
The New York Times has reported that the facilities that the migrant children have been kept in are “akin to jails” and that they have been subjected to “horrific conditions” that include “disease, hunger and overcrowding.”
Border Patrol officials told Fox News that they have been directed to use “prosecutorial discretion (PD) to forgo the hours-long process of paperwork required to issue [a Notice to Appear] amid the surge of migrants at the border.”
The illegal border crossers are instead entered into the system using biometric data and then allegedly released into the United States.
Border Patrol officials told Fox News that this was separate from the unaccompanied minors disaster that has unfolded under Biden.
The Washington Post reported on Saturday that there are 15,000 unaccompanied children in the possession of the U.S. federal government, nearly double the highest number ever recorded by the Department of Homeland Security.
Rep. Greg Steube (R-FL) wrote on Twitter: “The human effects of the #BidenBorderCrisis are real. Facilities are way over capacity, CBP is overwhelmed, and dangerous criminals are sneaking into our country.
Joe Biden and the Democrats need to accept responsibility and reverse their harmful policies.”
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked about the pictures during Monday’s press conference. Psaki said unaccompanied minors fleeing violence in large numbers does not constitute a crisis:
