WATCH: Psaki pressed on why migrant detention facility for children has opened

Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was pressed on why a migrant facility for children has opened under Biden the administration.

According to CBS News, over 200 migrant teenagers on Monday were sent to a reopened facility in Carrizo Springs, Texas.

Psaki said “It’s a temporary reopening during COVID-19,” adding “our intention is very much to close it.”

“This is not kids being kept in cages,” she also said, defending the facility. “This is a facility that was opened that is going to follow the same standards as other HHS facilities.”
