New photos have been released that show dozens of children who are packed into migrant facilities at the U.S. southern border. The eye-opening photos were shared by Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar from Texas, who said that the unaccompanied minors were detained by Border Patrol for "far longer" than the 72-hour legal time limit. After 72 hours, minors are supposed to be transferred to a Health and Human Services facility.

Cuellar appeared on CBS's "Face the Nation" on Sunday, where he revealed the packed conditions at migrant facilities. Minors are seen from wall-to-wall with no space for social distancing, and laying on the floor with mylar blankets.
