Photos show Border Patrol's largest processing facility, a former warehouse where families are separated and hundreds of migrant children are kept in cages

A number of disturbing stories have emerged from advocates and lawyers who have toured the McAllen facility and others like it. Michelle Brane, director of migrant rights at the Women's Refugee Commission, said she met with a 16-year-old girl who for three days had been taking care of a young girl who was separated from her mother. The 16-year-old said she had to teach other children in the cell to change her diaper.
