NM immigrant detention center only for families

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – News 13 has confirmed a New Mexico law enforcement training center will soon house a flood of undocumented immigrants, many of them children.

Recent reports say there’s been a surge of un-accompanied undocumented children crossing the border into the U.S.

That’s put a strain on holding facilities that are concerned on how to care for them.

Overnight, there were reports that many of those children were headed to New Mexico.

Saturday a spokesperson with Congressman Steve Pearce says that’s not entirely accurate.

He confirmed the feds will use a law enforcement training center in Artesia to house families until they can be deported or processed.
