WASHINGTON - The Trump administration is looking to build tent cities at military posts around Texas to shelter the increasing number of unaccompanied migrant children being held in detention.

The Department of Health and Human Services will visit Fort Bliss, a sprawling Army base near El Paso in the coming weeks to look at a parcel of land where the administration is considering building a tent city to hold between 1,000 and 5,000 children, according to U.S. officials and other sources familiar with the plans.

HHS officials confirmed that they’re looking at the Fort Bliss site along with Dyess Air Force Base in Abilene and Goodfellow AFB in San Angelo for potential use as temporary shelters.

“HHS will make the determination if any of the three sites assessed are suitable," said an HHS official.

Until we change the law to allow for immediate repatriation, without appeal, this is the right answer.

Or, preferably, never allowing them to set foot on US soil.

The real reason is to round up glbtqxyz people and non-white people so,the can be sent to some far away place. At least if you listen to the snowflake demolib left wing radical liars who love to use the “NOH8” meme. While flipping you off for supporting PDJT. Royal assclowns.

TURN THEM BACK AT THE BORDER. If the cross over from Mexico, they are Mexico’s problem, NOT OURS. I don’t care what they do with the kids so long as they never stay in America.

Build tent cities on the border to house all illegals who cross. No more catch and release. Hold their hearings immediately - last in, first out - for the entire family, and then deport them permanently. If you cross our border illegally, the penalty after deportation should be a permanent ban on reentry. The penalty should be delivered so quickly that they cannot profit from their criminal entry to our country. Let’s put a real price on this criminal behavior and end it.

Perhaps we should declare a section of Mexico along the border to be a security zone and keep the illegals there, safe but outside the US so that this nonsense of American civil rights applying to them would not be an issue.

This sounds like a great idea...Our Government (before President Trump) decided by themselves to let these people in without considering what to do about the whole situation it could cause (what we are seeing now), so since this mess is causing a lot of problems, we should tent them until the election of mid terms 2018 and then when we get these stupid RINOS and idiots out of the way then we can get the laws changed to where we don’t have this mess with feeding them, giving them housing and ignoring our Veterans that have fought for our freedoms, and those of us that have been born on American Soil and are American that have paved our way to received what we have put into Our Country...

No more of lobbyists and foreign nations that think we are giving our money out to make their lives better...

Thank you Lord for President Trump.

The kids in the camps will be held until some sort of relative, legal or illegal, is found. Then the kids will be be filtered into our cities in the dead of night.

That’s the current practice.

Will believe it has changed when it is actually changed.
