From KRQE News:
ARTESIA, N.M. (KRQE) – An influx of illegal immigrants coming into the United States has the federal government overwhelmed.
They’re so overwhelmed nearly 700 immigrants from drug-ridden Central American countries will soon be housed in New Mexico.
They’ll be staying in fenced barracks set up inside the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Artesia until deportation.
The facility’s three dorms stretch 10 acres and are equipped with bunk beds, play rooms, free phone access, special infant bathrooms and even a grilling area.
FLETC in Artesia is the Border Patrol Academy. A handful of other agencies train there, but it is dominated by USBP.
That BP video is from 2010 or earlier. There is no hiring push anymore. The housing shown in the KRQE story that’s being used by illegals now was built for BP agents around 2006-2008.
And just in case housing illegal aliens at the USBP academy wasn’t enough – this from the El Paso Times:
Any patient who tests positive for a contagious infection or disease, such as tuberculosis, will be immediately quarantined and given the proper medical treatment.
An immigrant will not be authorized for deportation until the virus or disease is no longer contagious.
ICE and the training center will utilize “soft security” for ensuring that immigrants do not try to escape. Agents will only be placed in the hallways near the bathroom entrances and outside of the housing area.
One of ICE’s goals is to have the residents live fairly normal lives without supervision. Children will be encouraged to engage in activities outside and in a large recreation room.
Two barbecue grills and a covered gazebo are built outside of the housing barracks that immigrants can use to relax and cook.
So the illegals who are diseased won’t be deported, but rather kept in the US… and the objective is to make it so illegal alien “residents” can “live fairly normal lives”.
Illegals are given free food, free housing, free medical care, and taking space and resources and time from the law enforcement academy that’s meant to provide for agents to protect the border – good for illegal aliens and bad for the nation’s security all at once.
