A Child Held at Border Patrol’s Clint Facility Speaks Out

Clip: Season 2020 Episode 1 | 3m 1s

Last year, reported conditions inside the Border Patrol station in Clint, TX where hundreds of migrant children were being held sparked a national outcry and congressional hearings. 9-year-old Dariana is the first child held inside the Clint facility who has been known to speak to the media: "Maybe we’d go out about 15 minutes a day ... the rest of the time we were locked up," she tells FRONTLINE.
