At Holloman AFB in NM, they spent a lot of $ fixing a facility up to house the children, then moved them in and housed them for a couple of months. No impact on the base, community or people there other than the funds spent. I know there were concerns of the children getting out or "escaping" but nothing ever happened that I'm aware of.

Sounds like a Great Re-Use. Hopefully they have removed all the Known Hazmat before hand.

Why wouldn't they offer the same type of accommodations for homeless veterans in that area. I live in Fort Bliss for three years.

SMSgt Dr. G. A. Thomas - Another Great Re-Use Idea. The thing taking off in this area for Homeless Vets is the Tiny Houses.

And last year the Alt.Right including Breitbart had "News Stories" spinning this type of housing as the government forcing US citizens to "Quarter Illegal Aliens". Of course it was bullshit. Our government actually does its best to take care of these kids, place them with their family members when possible, and in other safe places for those who truly hav nobody left to care for them (after they win their asylum cases).
