HOUSTON, Texas –A tidal wave of illegal immigrants along the U.S.-Mexico border has caused federal housing and processing facilities to become overwhelmed and overcrowded. As a result, officials have resorted to a makeshift housing center in Nogales, Arizona, especially for the surge of thousands of children who were part of the influx. They are being transported there via plane. Many of the minors at one facility — which only opened on Friday — are reportedly being sickened by the food — and throwing the food in the trash.
Tony Banegas, consul of Honduras to Arizona, told local media outlet KPHO-TV, “This morning they switched to burritos, but they complained the eggs were cold. They couldn’t eat them and even made them sick. They complained they had a burrito but had to throw it in the trash.” He said, “What happened today is they added four showers. Some of the girls were able to take their first shower in 10 days. They’re planning to build 60 in the next few days.”
