The crisis is sparking heated debate in Washington, where critics claim the Obama administrations immigration policies are to blame, including the DREAM Act, which defers deportation for some children.
Nearby residents who oppose the Escondido center said theyre concerned it will hurt property values, increase crime and cause other problems.
But some also decried the idea of federal tax dollars being used for such purposes, especially in their city.
We want our City Council and the Planning Commission to push back to the federal government and adhere to the laws, said Kitty Demry, who lives about a one-third of a mile from the proposed facility. We dont want an organization housed in our community with a huge number of uncertainties.
Southwest Key Programs already operates similar centers in Lemon Grove and El Cajon. During an open house Sunday night at the Escondido site, company representatives said their facilities are self-contained and not disruptive to the neighborhood. They said the center would bring 115 jobs to Escondido and will infuse $8.5 million annually into the local economy.

There is a meeting tonight of the Escondido Planning Commission to approve rezoning the facility for this new use.
"A facility to house unaccompanied children who are in the country illegally is proposed for this site on Avenida del Diablo, between Valley Parkway and Del Dios Road in Escondido." J. Harry Jones
How about sending them home?
Right on, Kitty. They should begin with a transparent and open process that includes the community and the local elected officials every step of the way and ensures compliance with all local, state and federal laws including local zoning ordinances.
Obama factotum---the nauseatingly obsequious DHS Secy Jeh Johnson----cited a US law "requiring" him to care for these children.
Johnson is exploiting a law that was drafted to accommodate Iraq and Afghan children---not border violators from Cdentral America.
Congress should empower state governors, that in case of a mass illegal migration, they can authorize every sheriff, every police department, to utilize their state police, take custody of these individuals, give them short-term assistance, and start loading up their national guard planes and fly them back home...
EVERY county, in EVERY state should be opposing these forced housing for illegals locations.
SEND. THEM. BACK.
Congress should demand that the tax dollars we send to Washington be spent in sending these children and their families back to their country of origin.
We should refuse to spend our tax dollars to feed, clothe, provide medical care, housing and education. It is not our job.
It must be more cost effective to send them back to their native land.
We can’t send them to Mexico. Mexico won’t take them because they are Honduran, Guatemalan, Salvadoran, or whatever. We have to fly them back to Central America. I think the plan was to flood us with Central Americans because they are harder to get rid of than Mexicans. The trains loaded with Central Americans heading towards Texas is all part of a plan. I also think Texas was targeted because 0bama wants to turn Texas into a red state. Call me a conspiracy nut if you want to.
Put them on a warship and sail to each one of those bastard countries and demand they be taken back or we will start firing.
Put them on small cruise ships. Take them back to a local harbor. Transfer them to a barge and leave them for the locals to take care of.
send them HOME, build a wall and cut off the bennies and incentives to come here
That is what needs to happen
If theyre so anxious to use the old nursing home for a bunch of needy people why is it not used to house homeless American veterans ...
those illegal aliens should have been long gone by now, deported back to their own countries...
You got that right. All of it is indicative of Me-First Obama's complete and utter contempt for Americans---and America.
It's becoming clearer he cunningly usurped the highest office in the land with lies and subterfuge in order to further his own self-serving agenda......he holds no respect for our sacrosanct laws nor for the American way of life.
The calculated plan appears to be to flood us with Central Americans.......because they are harder to get rid of than the Mexicans next door.
Nails it---there is massive collusion and conspiracy---this did not happen in a vacuum. What did Obama promise the corrupt Central American govts for dumping their citizens (future Democrat voters) into the US?
