Texas had to change it's rules in order to license the Karnes County Residential Center as a child care provider, but the Texas Department of Family and Protective services has done it. The license was issued for 60 days, giving the facility time to correct problems found in a March 29, 2016 inspection.
The Karnes County Residential Center is located southeast of San Antonio, Texas, and consists of barracks behind brick walls. It holds a maximum of 580 migrants, most mothers and children apprehended crossing the border and is run by the GEO Group, a private correctional detention company.
This is a shame. Painting Sponge Bob Square Pants on wall murals does not a child care center make.
