Texas Gov. Abbott says Biden's migrant crisis is now a 'humanitarian disaster' amid COVID outbreak at hastily constructed child holding facility which has no 'usable running water'

Texas Governor Greg Abbott has called the border crisis a 'humanitarian disaster' as COVID cases surge among teens held in a hastily constructed federal holding facility for child migrants with no drinkable water.

The detention center in Midland County, currently holding more than 400 youths, was opened on Sunday after federal officials converted a 'man camp' for oilfield workers to help handle a massive surge in illegal border crossings, including many unaccompanied minors.

More than 10 percent of the camp's population has tested positive for COVID-19 and at least one child had to be hospitalized. And on Friday, Texas officials issued a dire warning that well water used at the holding site could be contaminated with arsenic or other toxins.
