"New Mexico residents angry over housing immigrants" – Santa Fe New Mexican

A federal facility in Artesia that is currently housing immigrant families from Central America who are in the United States illegally is causing controversy in the area.  Residents crowded a town hall meeting Tuesday to express anger at the opening of the temporary detention center.  The federal facility was chosen by the Department of Homeland Security because it is “a more appropriate environment for the care and custody of adults with children and is cost-effective.” – 7/2/2014
