EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – The Health and Human Services Department released a series of photographs from inside the Tornillo tent facilities on Monday.

The photos appear to have been taken on Saturday, when clouds and light rain made its way through the Borderland, including Tornillo. The photos show bunks, with duct work for air conditioning. DHS also released photos of a mobile medical unit that is on site and being housed out of a bus.

Few people have been allowed into the facility since it began taking in children.
