One of a team of lawyers who inspected the station in June, Warren Binford, director of the clinical law program at Willamette University in Oregon, said that in all her years of visiting detention and shelter facilities, she had never encountered conditions so bad — children crammed into what she described as a prisonlike environment.
She looked at the roster, and was shocked to see more than very young children listed. One teenage mother from El Salvador said Border Patrol agents at the border had taken her medicine for her infant son, who had a fever. Binford said she had asked her. They threw away everything.

But one boy reported breaking out in a skin rash, his face and arms turning red and flaky. It took 13 days after the boys were detained to speak to their father over the phone. A lawyer who had entered the facility, Clara Long of Human Rights Watch, met the boys, tracked down their parents, and helped them make a call. Then, they could answer only with one- or two-word answers, Ms.
Long said, and were wiping tears from their faces. A Border Patrol agent who has long worked in the El Paso area said agents had tried to make things as easy as possible for the children; some bought toys and sports equipment on their own to bring in. In the surrounding town, many residents were puzzled and sad at the news of what was happening to children in the station on Alameda Avenue.
