The small shelter along the Texas border to Mexico held 60 beds and a little playground for children. Rooms were equipped with toys, books and crayons. To Colleen Kraft, this shelter looked, in many ways, like a friendly environment for children.

He is a sick minded idiot. He reverses what he caused, but doesn't do a damn thing not say anything about helping the over 2000 that are already displaced. America is not better, tRump has mad it worse. Thanks Freya
