Sixteen migrant fathers who had previously been separated from and then reunited with their children were forcibly separated from them again and taken to another detention center without explanation on Wednesday, they told the legal aid group RAICES.

The fathers were returned to the Karnes County Residential Center in south-central Texas on Thursday, following a night of fear and worry.

Neither the men nor their lawyers know why it happened.
