According to the Associated Press, immigration authorities want 15,000 more beds to be ready for detained migrants in the next couple of weeks.
This comes after Trump signed an executive order ending his own family separation policy.
The AP also reported that the Justice Department asked a court in California to detain children longer, in conditions that do not meet typical child welfare standards.
Meanwhile, Trump argued that conditions at facilities were much worse under former President Barack Obama.
He wrote on Twitter, “Drudge Report: ‘Obama kept them in cages, wrapped them in foil’ We do a much better job while at the same time maintaining a MUCH stronger border. Mainstream Fake Media hates this story.”
