NM detention center would only be for families

ARTESISA, N.M. – Congressman Steve Pearce says a new detention facility planned for New Mexico would only be for immigrant families, not unaccompanied minors.

The Roswell Daily Record reports (http://bit.ly/1p3iJdb) that Pearce said Friday that an area of the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Artesia could house families.

The Republican says that children without parents won’t be able to stay there because there are no proper day care facilities.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security said Friday the 700-bed family detention facility would likely be the first of several new facilities that will be open to house immigrants caught crossing the border illegally.

A surge of immigrants from Central America have been apprehended crossing the border in recent weeks.

Pearce says the facility in Artesia could be a temporary stop before deportation.
