In Other News: DOD Considers Additional Bases to House Migrants

With two Texas installations already preparing to accept migrant families and unaccompanied minors apprehended crossing the nation’s southern border, federal officials now are considering additional bases in Texas, Arizona, New Mexico and California as candidates to house immigrants, a DOD spokesman said Monday. In Texas, Goodfellow AFB will take up to 20,000 children and Fort Bliss will handle up to 12,000 undocumented families. DOD will be prepared to house at least a portion of those immigrants by Aug. 14, reported Stars and Stripes.
