USA: Migrant children locked-up behind bars and separated from families *STILLS*

Migrant children are being kept in prison-like conditions with only emergency blankets to keep them warm at McAllen juvenile detention centre in Brownsville, Texas, in pictures released by the US government on Tuesday. The facility is run by the US customs and border service. Attorney General Jeff Sessions' new zero-tolerance policy has been blamed for separating families. Under the new rules... Еще, all cases of illegal entry are referred for criminal prosecution. Around 2,000 migrant children have been separated from their parents between mid-April and May, because, unlike their parents, they are not charged with a crime.
