Texas Governor Calls for Closure of San Antonio Coliseum Due to Sexual Abuse of Migrant Children
Unaccompanied migrant children are increasingly victims of sexual violence and abuse by guards in alien detention facilities.
In his official statement, Texas Governor Greg Abbott accused US President Joe Biden of creating a crisis on the border with Mexico. With no authority to remedy the situation in the numerous detention centers for migrant children, Abbott indicated that an investigation has begun on allegations of sexual abuse, in addition to the fact that Covid-positive children are not separated from Covid-negative children.
“I wish the governor had done his tour before the press conference when he politicized children,” said Clay-Flores, an elected Democrat.

Abbott later announced that he intended to bring up the topic of the border crisis in an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity.
“Speaking with Sean Hannity shortly to discuss Biden's open border crisis and the allegations of abuse and neglect at the child migrant facility in San Antonio.”

The borders are still open for migrants, despite the continued influx of refugees from South America. HHS is providing tens of thousands of new places in various institutions, according to authorities, but this is still not enough.
Early photos from migrant detention centers shocked society. The overcrowding of the cells exceeded tens of times. Many children slept on the ground, covered with space blankets.
