Arizona official says immigrant kids in good care
(06-10 11:31)

While Arizona politicians continue to criticize the transfer of hundreds of migrant children to a state known for its immigration problem, the mayor of a border town where the kids are being held in a former warehouse said Monday that the conditions of their temporary housing were good enough.
Nogales Mayor Arturo Garino toured the massive facility Monday where state officials say about 700 to 1,000 mostly Central American children were sent after being caught illegally crossing the Mexican border into Texas.
The children are mostly on their own, complicating the massive influx of migrants last month to the Rio Grande Valley in Texas that overwhelmed the Border Patrol there. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security started flying immigrants to Arizona, where they were released and told to report to an Immigration and Customs Enforcement office near where they were traveling within 15 days. --AP
