FILE - In this June 7, 2019 file photo, people cross the Rio Grande into the United States to turn themselves over to authorities and ask for asylum, as seen from Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico, opposite El Paso, Texas. The federal government will be opening a facility at an Army base in Oklahoma to house migrant children and is considering a customs port in southern New Mexico as another option as existing shelters are overwhelmed. The Office of Refugee Resettlement said Tuesday, June 11, 2019 it's dealing with a dramatic spike in the number of children crossing the border without parents. (AP Photo/Christian Torres, File)
