THREAD: This week we were given rare access inside the NM compound where authorities think children were getting weapons training to carry out school shootings. This is part of the tunnel that extends out from the property. @NBCNews This is video provided to us showing a side chamber where children were believed to have stayed - off to the right is a small escape opening.

Elsa Ortiz Enriquez is over 1500 miles away from her 8 year old son Anthony. SHE WAS DEPORTED TO GUATEMALA WITHOUT HIM. Now, he is somewhere in Texas, and she just wants to hear his voice again. Elsa crossed the border with Anthony earlier this month. Her boyfriend paid for them to be smuggled across the river in a raft near Reynosa so they could come join him in Virginia. They were quickly caught by Border Patrol.

We’re about to head into another detention shelter for immigrant children separated from families. This one much different from the former Walmart @jacobsoboroff showed us earlier this week. No cameras allowed in but our reports coming up @MSNBC @NBCNightlyNews @allinwithchris So, the first thing children who are brought here are told is that this is not a detention center. — Even though they are not allowed to leave. Don’t know when they will be freed. And get 2 phone calls to family a week. Those calls can’t be longer than 10 minutes.
