    US considering using military bases to house illegal immigrant children nabbed at bor

    US considering using military bases to house illegal immigrant children nabbed at border: report

    By Gregg Re
    36 mins ago

    Officials told AP that the federal government is considering housing at military bases those children picked up crossing the U.S. border illegally either alone or after being separated from their parents by the government.

    Several U.S. military bases may soon house illegal immigrant children caught crossing the border, two government officials told the Associated Press.

    The Health and Human Services Department is also considering using the bases to shelter children who were separated from their parents while illegally entering the country, the officials reportedly said.

    Illegal immigrant children are often separated from their parents for their own welfare, or because their parents are facing criminal charges.

    The sources discussed the plan Tuesday on condition of anonymity because it has not been made public or made final.

    Health and Human Services is a federal agency that oversees approximately 100 shelters in more than a dozen states for children seized at the border. The agency's mission is to ensure the health of Americans and provide critical services.

    HHS has temporarily used military bases for housing in the past. During a surge in children from Central America in 2014, the HHS temporarily used military bases in California, Oklahoma and Texas to house children.

    That process was not without its critics. In 2014, Texas officials appealed to the Obama administration to secure the U.S.-Mexico border as waves of illegal immigrant children overwhelmed the system, with one lawmaker saying U.S. military bases effectively have been transformed into camps to handle the influx.

    "Our military bases are turning into refugee camps. I never thought I'd see this in the United States of America," House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul, R-Texas, said at the time.

    The Department of Homeland Security has limited space to house families that are kept together — only about 2,700 beds at three family detention centers in Texas and Pennsylvania. In April alone, people who came as families accounted for nearly 10,000 Border Patrol arrests. Another 4,300 were unaccompanied children.

    "Our military bases are turning into refugee camps."
    - House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul

    Nearly 1 in 4 Border Patrol arrests on the Mexican border from October through April was someone who came in a family. That means any large increase in prosecutions will likely cause parents to be separated from their children while they face charges and do time in jail.

    Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen defended the Trump administration's practice of separating children from parents when the family is being prosecuted for entering the U.S. illegally, telling a Senate committee Tuesday that removing children from parents facing criminal charges happens "in the United States every day."

    Nielsen, who has led the agency since December, came under attack from Democratic senators days after Attorney General Jeff Sessions said a "zero tolerance" policy toward people entering the country illegally could lead to more families being split up while parents are prosecuted.

    In a contentious exchange with Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., Nielsen said her department was not taking children from parents as a way to deter illegal immigration. Rather, Nielsen said, if a person crosses the border illegally: "We will refer you for prosecution. You've broken U.S. law."

    When Harris pressed her about what that would mean for a 4-year-old child whose family faces charges of entering the country illegally, Nielsen said, "What we'll be doing is prosecuting parents who've broken the law, just as we do every day in the United States of America."

    The children are transferred to the custody of Health and Human Services within 48 hours, she said. That department then finds people for the children to stay with while the parents are in custody, she said.

    The Associated Press contributed to this report.

    You must drop these children, all of them, at the nearest Consulate of their country for return post haste to their land of citizenship. The United States is not responsible for the care of these children, their home country is responsible. Inform the Consulates and if they don't cooperate, then you load them all on cargo planes and haul them immediately to their land of citizenship and put them in the care and custody of their home country, then order an immediate closure of all non-cooperating Consulates and ejection of all diplomatic personnel.

    Why should the taxpayers of the United States be responsible for the care and feeding of these people? Let the Catholic church and all the special interests who want them here worry about them. We citizens do not want them here sucking up benefits to which they are not entitled. Run them back over the border and let Mexico take care of them.

    Exactly!! Just get them out of here and keep them out, before they commit other crimes. DEPORT!!

    Everyone needs to bring the hammer down on Sessions and DOJ because Sessions and DOJ are responsible for this a) letting them in b) taking them into custody c) housing, detaining, feeding, health care, education, etc., etc., while they wait years for a deportation order issued by DOJ and d) forcing breeding of anchor babies in the process.

    We all love Jeff Sessions because he was such an advocate for our cause as a US Senator, but he's in a different role now and it's his JOB is to deport these people. YES, DOJ, NOT DHS, has full control of deportation and release orders, NOT DHS.
