Customs and Border Protection added a 90,000 migrant processing facility in Texas.
“U.S. Customs and Border Protection today announced the opening of a soft-sided facility in Eagle Pass, Texas. The facility’s primary purpose is to safely and expeditiously process individuals in U.S. Border Patrol custody,” the agency’s press release notes.
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials continued, describing the facility as “weatherproof, climate-controlled, and is expected to provide ample areas for eating, sleeping, and personal hygiene.”
“The 90,000 square foot facility sits on five acres adjacent to the Eagle Pass South Station, which houses the Del Rio Sector Central Processing Center. The temporary facility will provide additional processing capacity for Border Patrol’s Del Rio Sector,” the press release adds.
