Chicken pox stalls Artesia immigrant movement

ARTESIA, N.M. (KRQE) – The movement of illegal immigrants in and out of the federal facility in Artesia is on hold because of chicken pox.

New Mexico congressman Steve Pearce says two people have the chicken pox and are now in isolation.

Women and children at the center are already being treated and vaccinated.

Immigration and Custom Enforcement or ICE says the case does not put the community at risk.
