Administration to open family detention at border

WASHINGTON – The Obama administration is opening new detention facilities to house immigrant families caught crossing the border together illegally. This is after months of an immigration surge from Central America.

The Homeland Security Department did not immediately say how many families would be kept in the new immigration jails or where they will be located.

The administration has released an unspecified number of such families into the U.S. in the past several months with instructions to report later to Immigration and Customs Enforcement offices, but it won’t say how many it has released or how many subsequently appeared as ordered.
