YOUNGTOWN, Ariz. — Criminal charges are being considered against a Southwest Key shelter in Arizona after surveillance video was released showing staff members dragging and pushing migrant children.

It happened at the Hacienda Del Sol facility in Youngtown, Arizona back in September.

Southwest Key reported these incidents in mid-September to local law enforcement as well as federal officials.

The Maricopa County Attorney's Office is reviewing the incident.

The facility closed a month later, and a source says two staff members were fired.
