On Tuesday, Immigration and Customs Enforcement announced that the agency would release 12 babies they were detaining at their facility in Dilley, Texas. Their statement followed immigration advocates filing a complaint to the Department of Homeland Security claiming that the infants were deprived of adequate medical care, clean water, and a sufficient amount of baby food, and demanding their release.

ICE says that there were a total of 16 infants under the age of 1 year old being detained at the facility as of March 1. The statement also revealed that another infant under a year old was held at a nearby facility. According to CBS News, the babies and their mothers will be released to friends and family.
