Border officials are expected to unveil the newest outdoor facility to detain immigrant children and families who cross the U.S. border near Yuma, Arizona.

Border Patrol agents say 17 migrants have been rescued after they crossed into a military bombing range in southwestern Arizona and became lost.

Border Patrol officials say emergency services in Mexico relayed a phone call to the Yuma Sector Operations Center from a group lost in the desert around 10 o’clock Monday night. The caller reported the group was included eight adults and nine juveniles.
