OKLAHOMA CITY -

We, the media, are going to get our first look at the conditions at Fort Sill, where reportedly more than 1,100 children, who crossed the border illegally are being housed.

The Health and Human Services Administration, responding to multiple requests by reporters, has agreed to give us a tour Thursday morning. I'll be going for News 9. But HHS has also imposed some extremely limiting restrictions on our access to the facility, most importantly, no recording devices will be allowed, video or audio, so no cameras.

We can't ask any questions during the tour, and we are to have no interaction with the children, or the staff working at the shelter. It's disappointing that the government is trying to control the flow of information inside, and outside of this taxpayer funded refuges.

This 40 minute tour positions us more as observers than reporters, but at this point, we'll take any access we can get. They say pictures of the facility will be provided, after the tour and we can email or telephone our questions to a designated spokesman.

It's tough to get at the truth when the government will show you only what they want you to see, but I'll have my observations for you Thursday.

I'm Kelly Ogle and that's My 2 Cents.
