Clarification: Teen Detention Camp story

In a story July 17, The Associated Press reported that newly relaxed federal requirements are expediting the process for sending child migrants to live with relatives already in the U.S. The story should have specified the changes only apply to adult siblings and grandparents.

Locks failed for years at an Arizona prison and allowed for serious beatings of prisoners and guards, but Corrections Director Charles Ryan failed to appreciate the seriousness of the problem until he saw video of an assault that was broadcast on television, according to a report released Thursday.

Modi, a Hindu nationalist by the time he was 10 years old, had upended life in India's only Muslim-majority state, flexing those nationalist muscles for his...

US official: 'Much better' conditions at border for migrants

A senior Trump administration official says that with fewer immigrants and more detention space, people apprehended along the U.S.-Mexico border won't be subject to the squalid, overcrowded conditions criticized earlier this year. Kevin McAleenan, the acting Secretary of Homeland Security, thanked Congress Thursday during a tour of a new Border Patrol facility in West Texas, saying the money helped "create a much better situation." The tent facility in Tornillo, Texas, is about 40 miles (64.37 kilometers) southeast of El Paso and can hold 2,500 migrants. It had 32 on Thursday after being open for 48 hours.
