(CNN)The Trump administration this month announced it has selected federal land in Tornillo, Texas, to house a temporary shelter for unaccompanied immigrant children as the number of families separated at the Mexico border surges.

The shelter will initially have 360 beds but more will be added, if needed, Department of Health and Human Services spokesman Kenneth Wolfe said. The facility can hold up to 4,000 beds, according to GOP Texas Rep. Will Hurd, who recently visited the temporary shelter in the border town.
