Kevin Dinnin, head of the San Antonio-based nonprofit that runs the Carrizo Springs shelter, said it was "too much, too late."


Less than a month after its opening, the emergency shelter for migrant children in Carrizo Springs is reportedly shutting down.

Vice News first reported on its closure — and the potential that it could continue operating without children — on Tuesday. It's unclear what the U.S. Department of Health and Human services plans to do; a spokesperson for the agency declined to offer additional details.

"It was too much, too late," Kevin Dinnin, head of the San Antonio-based nonprofit BCFS Health and Human Services, which operates the facility, told Vice News. "By this weekend, we should have discharged all the children."
