Gov. Greg Abbott will be in Dallas as the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center will open its doors Wednesday to unaccompanied immigrant minors from the border.

The first 200 minors will arrive Wednesday. Up to 3,000 total will be brought to Dallas with around 2,300 of them being teenage boys between 15 to 17 years old.

Federal officials said there has been a huge surge of people crossing the border this year and the U.S. government is quickly running out of space to hold them.

The convention center has been leased for 75 days and the goal of the facility is rapid reunification with their families.
