Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is set to speak at noon Central on Wednesday about the developing crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border as the number of unaccompanied minors crossing into the state grows.

Abbott is speaking at Dallas’ Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center, one of two Texas locations the Biden administration has identified as a temporary shelter for thousands of migrant children. The Washington Post reported the locations earlier this week following news of overcrowding at facilities in South Texas. Watch the press conference above, courtesy of our partners at NBCDFW.
