    Migrant shelter crisis in Deming, New Mexico, draws national attention after NBC telecast : Close to 7,000 migrants have come through the Deming Migrant Relief Shelter with the tremendous help of local volunteers and city and county staffs. (Deming Headlight 6/19/19) https://www.demingheadlight.com/story/news/2019/06/19/migrant-shelter-crisis-deming-nm-draws-national-attention/1504302001/
    The small city of Deming, New Mexico has become the latest U.S. border community to declare a state of emergency after dozens of migrants were released [dumped without any notice at a McDonalds] in the town by federal authorities seeking to cope with a surge in asylum seekers coming across the southern U.S. border. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-immigration-emergency/new-mexico-city-of-deming-declares-emergency-over-migrant-releases-idUSKCN1SL2WZ

    Border agents feared riots over poor conditions at an El Paso, Texas, border station as far back as May, according to a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) inspector general report shared with The Hill Monday. https://www.oig.dhs.gov/sites/default/files/assets/2019-05/OIG-19-46-May19.pdf
    Inspectors noted during a May 7 tour of the station, the name of which is redacted in the report, that only four showers were available for 756 immigrants, over half of which were being held in tents outside the facility.
    Those being held inside were kept in cells that were maxed at over five times their intended capacity, according to reports.
    The report says that the conditions and overcrowding made border agents fear unrest.
    Agents reported taking sick migrants to the hospital five times a day, treating 75 immigrants for lice in a day and trying to quarantine outbreaks of flu and the chickenpox.
    The report’s release on Monday comes after new acting DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan said that reports of poor conditions for children at a border station in the El Paso sector were “unsubstantiated.”
    It also follows reports from lawyers allowed in a Clint, Texas, facility who found children taking care of other children and living in soiled clothing. (The Hill 7/1/19) https://thehill.com/latino/451134-agents-feared-riots-over-poor-conditions-at-border-station-report
