    Construction crews are seen from a nearby highway on Monday, July 15, 2019, working on the expansion of a tent facility in Donna, Texas. The three large tents had the ability to house 1,200 migrants but were closed in 2020. (Border Report File Photo/Sandra Sanchez)




    McALLEN, Texas (Border Report) — U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials are planning to build more soft-sided tent facilities in the South Texas cities of Donna and Laredo to house an anticipated influx of migrant youth crossing the Southwest border.

    CBP officials on Wednesday afternoon told Border Report that “CBP is moving forward with plans for the mobilization of soft-side facilities (SSF) in Donna, Texas.

    A lease with the city of Donna was awarded on January 15, 2021 and the notice to proceed was signed on January 19, 2021. Construction of the SSF should be completed in approximately 30 days.”

    The facilities are to house an increase in unaccompanied migrant children — known as UACs for “unaccompanied alien children” according to government lingo.

    “Since April, CBP has seen a steady increase of UACs from the Western Hemisphere due to the worsening economic conditions brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. As such, CBP is constructing temporary soft-side facilities in Donna,” the CBP statement said.

    But the new Donna facilities will not be located at the same spot near the Donna-Rio Bravo International Bridge where three tents were built in 2019 to house an overflow of migrants. Those tents had the capacity to hold 1,200 migrants and were demobilized last year. The tents were air-conditioned and equipped with showers and medical facilities. The original tents built in Donna, plus tents erected by CBP in West Texas near Tornillo, cost an estimated $40 million, according to The New York Times.

    A CBP document, which was heavily redacted, did not indicate the cost of the new tent facilities but did place a price tag of $18.2 million as a three-month base price, not including additional options.
    It is unclear what additional space and safety measures will need to be taken to house hundreds of migrants during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

    Are you kidding me?????

    Here we go again!

    Millions of our dollars for tent cities for foreign citizens who are criminal trespassers but not for millions of our own homeless who are freezing in the cold.

    Everybody should be outraged by this.

    Hand them over to their Embassy and send them the hell back home!

    Their president can build them tent cities on their soil. They can call the U.N. to fund this!

    This tent city needs to be shut down!

    $18 million for these criminal trespassers while we have thousands living in a tent in our streets.

    We could be buying thousands of Sheds from Home Depot for $18 MILLION for our homeless and set them up in empty Mall parking lots across America. Get our citizens off the streets and ditches living in tents!

    We are not going to build billion dollars apartment complexes for OUR homeless, at least give them a Shed out of the rain and cold.

    We could put dumpsters and 2 construction trailers for them with Men's & Women's restrooms and showers in empty Mall parking lots.

    Cheaper than what the stupid INCOMPETENT city leaders are doing now...wasting hundreds of thousands of dollars shoveling poop off the sidewalks and dismantling tents where people have no where to go!

    Put 2 bunk beds in them with built in bench and a table. Bulk cost would probably be about $400 bucks and help people get shelter here, OUR citizens who need it.

    An empty Mall store could be used for counseling and job placement help!





    AMERICAN'S FIRST!


    NO TENT CITY FOR ILLEGALS

    NO HEADS ON BEDS...PUT THEIR BUTT'S ON BUSES BACK HOME!

    If immigrants (legal or illegal) didn't tend to vote Democrat, the Democrats would be quick to reduce legal immigration and would want a border wall and more border security. Currently they are investing in future votes. The only reason they want amnesty for illegal is for votes.
