The Homeland Security Department has privately acknowledged that a remarkable number of young families caught crossing the border illegally earlier this year subsequently failed to meet with federal immigration agents, as they were instructed. At the meeting, the ICE official acknowledged the no-show figures while explaining the administration’s decision in June to open a temporary detention center for families in Artesia, New Mexico.

Before the new facility in Artesia, the government had room for fewer than 100 people at its only family detention center in Pennsylvania. (AP Photo/J.R.
