The change could result in the release of many more children from the centers. A series of tents that opened in June to house older children in Tornillo, Texas, was to close later this month. The space originally had 400 beds, but it expanded twice and now holds roughly 2,700 minors. A spokesman for HHS, Mark Weber, said on Tuesday afternoon that the agency had yet to make a decision about whether Tornillo will close by year’s end.
