U.S. detention centers for people caught illegally crossing the U.S.-Mexico border are being called unsafe, with some alleging that temperatures in the cells are kept low on purpose, as a form of punishment.

From the Here & Now Contributors Network, we hear a report from Peter O'Dowd of KJZZ and Fronteras Desk.

Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson also speaks with Rachael Bale with The Center for Investigative Reporting (CIR), who has reported with O'Dowd on the border control detention centers.
