    ICE: Texas detention center to house migrant families again

    ICE: Texas detention center to house migrant families again

    By Frank Miles | Fox News

    ICE to resume detaining migrant families at facility near San Antonio

    El Salvador's foreign minister recently signed an asylum agreement with the U.S. which allows America to send asylum seekers to the Central American country; Christina Coleman has the latest.

    U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced it will return to detaining migrant families at a Texas facility southeast of San Antonio.

    In a statement to Fox News, ICE said: "U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) will revert the Karnes County Detention Center (KCDC) back to a family residential center in the near future.

    The facility has been recently used to house adult women. Additional intake at the facility has been temporarily suspended. During the transition back to housing families, those detainees at KCDC may be transferred to other detention facilities."

    The facility had stopped housing migrant families after an uptick in border crossings, which have since dropped, The Washington Post reported.

    Family apprehensions at the southern border declined over the summer, from 70 percent of all migrants taken into custody in July to 55 percent in August, the newspaper added.

    The Karnes County facility used to hold up to 800 parents and children. The families usually would be detained before an initial screening to judge whether they qualified for asylum.


    The Texas center is ringed by 15-foot fences and has security cameras monitoring movements. It also offers bilingual children’s books in the library, classes, TVs and an artificial turf soccer field.

    Inside the Karnes City center, there are five or six beds to a room typically shared by a couple of families.

    Cinderblock walls are painted pastel colors, said officials, who added that the facilities are run by private prison operators, not humanitarian organizations, as is the case with shelters for unaccompanied immigrant children.

    Most families in the past spent up to a few weeks in the facilities and would be released once they passed initial asylum screenings. Then, each would receive a date to appear before an immigration judge.

    Those who did not pass initial screenings could seek additional review in a video conference with a judge, a process that would last about six weeks.

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.

    Process and deport all UACs into the care and custody of THEIR president within 48 hours. They have relatives back home. It is kidnapping to KEEP them here or release them to anybody!

    Put Judges on 3 shifts:

    7am - 3pm
    3pm - 11pm
    11pm - 7am

    Hear the cases via Skype, deny them, load them on buses BACK home!

    Overbreeding in poverty, drugs, gangs, violence, domestic abuse, and pregnant is NOT asylum!

    They cannot be vetted. They can take their FAKE documents, their FAKE names, and go relocate within their own countries.

    They have land, they have resources, their President can provide them a "safe" place to stay!

    We have the SAME problems all across America. Chicago, LA, Baltimore, St. Louis, Detroit, Albuquerque, full of crime and poverty!
