Is POTUS treating migrant children like prisoners? Can this action be considered a form of cruel and unusual punishment?

Meanwhile, at the detention center in Homestead, Florida, eyewitnesses say that migrant children are being held like prisoners to the point where some are cutting themselves in despair. ‪No hugs, kids cutting themselves: Court gets unprecedented peek inside Homestead shelter https://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/immigration/article231075518.html
