It appears that the old Hoover manufacturing plant located on El Paso’s west side is being considered by the feral government for use as a migrant processing center.
This idea is not being well received by some of El Paso’s business community.
“We urge the GSA and CBP to develop a long-term solution, which addresses these needs, which may involve new construction and which does not compromise the economic development opportunities in El Paso or the Borderplex region,”
It seems that economic development is more important to some than finding a way to try to take care of the basic needs of the migrants.
We have a crisis in that the migrants are being housed under dangerous conditions.
Whether they should be let in the country, or how they got here, or who they are is not the issue right this minute.
If our policy is to let them in the country while their individual stories are being evaluated, then we need to provide them with adequate shelter.
Our congress needs to fix our immigration system. Few of us have hope that they will do that soon.
In the meantime we need to deal with the mess that has been created.
We deserve better
