Project Veritas Obtains Never-Before-Seen Images Inside Texas Detention Facility … Illegal Immigrants are Cornered in Tight Spaces and Wrapped in Space Blankets on the Floor
- Just over a month ago, Customs and Border Patrol completed the construction of this 185,000 square foot facility in Donna, Texas to house countless migrants who come across the border daily.
- The facility will not allow non-profit lawyers who conduct oversight of these detention centers to go inside or even see photos of the conditions.
- Source: “These photos were taken within the last few days. There are eight pods with eight cells each in the facility. At any given moment there are an average of 3,000 people in custody here.”
- Source: “They [illegal immigrants] are separated by age or physical size depending on room. Fifty were COVID positive in these cells over the last few days. There have been multiple sexual assaults, normal assaults and daily medical emergencies.”
- The Biden administration continues to allege that the border crisis is not out of their control.
- New Project Veritas insider working within the Department of Homeland Security has leaked documents warning of a Central American-based caravan headed to the U.S. border.
[DONNA, TEXAS – Mar. 22, 2021] Project Veritas released a bombshell video today displaying never-before-seen photos inside a detention facility near the U.S.-Mexican border where illegal immigrants are concentrated in tight spaces and wrapped in space blankets.Play
A source reached out to Project Veritas and explained the conditions that these migrants face on a regular basis while detained at this facility.
“These photos were taken within the last few days. There are eight pods with eight cells each in the facility. At any given moment there are an average of 3,000 people in custody here,” the source said.
“They [illegal immigrants] are separated by age or physical size depending on room. Fifty were COVID positive in these cells over the last few days. There have been multiple sexual assaults, normal assaults and daily medical emergencies,” they said.
Customs and Border Patrol [CBP] completed the construction of this 185,000 square foot facility in Donna, Texas just over a month ago — it was designed to house hundreds if not thousands of migrants on a daily basis that come into the U.S. illegally.
According to a CBS report, non-profit lawyers who conduct oversight of these migrant detention facilities have been impeded by CBP from going inside or even seeing photos of the conditions. Project Veritas is offering a previously unseen glimpse into those conditions, which have been kept secret from the public.
Project Veritas founder and CEO James O’Keefe visited the Donna detention facility late last week and was asked to leave the location by the facility’s staff. A staff member alleged the location was “private property” and journalists needed to keep their distance.
The Project Veritas team members that accompanied O’Keefe in Donna were able to record footage outside the facility before being asked to leave. The team subsequently obtained additional footage of the facility that was recorded in a fly over of the location.
Further complicating the situation at the border, a new Project Veritas insider working within the Department of Homeland Security [DHS] leaked documents warning of a Central American-based caravan headed to the United States.
The leaked document states that “in the days leading up to March 30 and should a caravan form, CBP personnel in the region will work closely with and maintain constant communication with CBP Partners including ICE, as well as local security and immigration agencies.”
The Biden administration has continuously denied that there is an ongoing crisis at the border and claims that the situation is under control. Project Veritas is still on the ground in Texas to expose corruption and wrongdoing as it appears.
it appears once authorities learned we had these photos, they finally gave press access inside to scoop us. We’re happy that our actions broke the rumored gag order.
