CBP getting ready to open another migrant processing center in northeast El Paso

EL PASO, Texas -- ABC-7 has learned that El Paso will soon be home to a site large enough for federal agents to process nearly 1,000 undocumented immigrants.

The U.S. Border Patrol currently has a processing center right off of Hondo Pass on the city's northeast side, which was the site where hundreds of migrants were brought last year during a surge in border crossings.

According to Customs and Border Protection officials, the new processing center will also sit in northeast El Paso - on undeveloped land there. The proposed site has just passed its final environmental assessment.

Once finished, the permanent one-story center will be 113,000 square feet and have an additional 200,000 square feet of parking space next to the facility.

The new processing center will have a capacity for 965 detainees and 200 staff members.

Officials told ABC-7 that the project will take around 18 months to complete, and once finished will encompass 10 acres in size.

The facility is expected to open in 2023.

Even though northeast El Paso already has one processing center, CBP officials say the additional facility will help the agency process and transport migrants in a timelier fashion to meet nationally-imposed standards.

  1. It’s a hell of a lot cheaper to just bus their asses back south then to spend my tax dollars feeding and pampering the cowards that won’t fight for their rights and freedoms but they will come here to live off my country

        1. Look up Socialist, dummy. Unless you forgot how to read because of your Alzheimer’s. While you are at it look up Racist Pig, you will see a picture of yourself.

          1. Every where that idiot communist markturner goes dumbass Alberto aka Ux2ydrna soon follows. Two psychos living in the same head. Only nuts talk to themselves. LMAO.

      1. Here is some evidence von comrade turner. Your buddy de blasio in NY is putting up barriers and check points to keep people out and put them in quarantine if they prove positive for COVIN. East Germany, your nazi country did the same thing under soviet communist rule until President Reagan proposed the Germans to tear the wall down. Americans want the wall here to keep undesirables like you out. Unlike your comrades the marxists want to keep them in as slaves. Enough evidence for you? Or are you now going to say , there is no wall? The only racist buffoon and baboon here is you.

    1. Mamon357 you wouldn’t have a place to live, anything to eat, no streets to drive on if it wasn’t for these valuable folks. Spoon fed asshole.

    2. They should bus all the PTSD cry babies upping their disability payments sucking the government tit. Ouch boys! What the hell did u think you signed up for? I like the old WWl vets. They had balls.

          1. uxcrement still has that stutter problem,I see. Try spitting out the shit you are eating. That should clear your stuttering problem.

    3. Dumb old White Racist wants to be like the Trump Bunch. News for you, you are the minority in El Paso. So just get on you horse and ride your old Racist ass back to Mississippi where you belong.

      1. uxcrement says madmike is a minority here. That’s good. So all the crap and mismanagement here comes from the majority like uxcrement. No wonder the demoKKKrats suck here.

  2. Why aren’t they being returned to their country of origin from day 1. I wonder how much it is going to cost the U.S. tax payers to build and operate?

    1. You don’t pay taxes. The reason they aren’t returned is because in spite of the racist orange buffoon, we still are a compasionate country that admits immigrants seeking asylum. It will get better when Sleepy Joe Biden takes over in January.

        1. Illegally is how your parents got here, dummy. Stowaways on a ship from Nazi Germany who drank bilge water to survive. And when they for here they got kicked around for not speaking English. All you White Racist Pigs should go back to your home Country and leave us alone in Our Land.

          1. Not your land uxcrement. We took it from you. Remember? You are the minority that sucks what we give you. Go play with your other fool in your head and stay there. Coward.

      1. sleepy joe is going to sleep during the debates. Before the debates. After the debates. And if by some shameful miracle he wins the presidency, he will sleep through that presidency. That poor old senile old man just said today that blacks are all the same. Really? That is news to my neighbor.
        And comrade turner is willing to destroy this country just to say he was right, somehow.

    1. Truer words were never spoken on this blog. Lets deport one white trash Nazi like madmike or nadodave or Fero2A and for each one of those scum deported, let in 10 immigrants.

          1. madmike will kick your sorry ass. Be sure to bring your baseball ball so you can make his day.

      1. How about we deport your sorry ass to Venezuela you idiot communist. Make my day. Corner of VDS and Yarbrough or are you going to coward like you always do.

        1. I’ll be there in 30 minutes and I’m bringing your old grandma to spank your skinny ass so you behave. She says she should have done it a LONG time ago so you wouldn’t turn out to be such an asshole.

          1. My grandmoms passed away long time ago moron. Your mother should have aborted your sorry ass.

  3. How about all them madmikes in line for elective surgeries to up their gravy payments? They are a great help to this country. Not talking about the real injuries. There are “some” real heroes.

    1. How about all them 25 personalities in alberto’s head, sucking up welfare, living in government-subsidized housing, counting on your EBT card, not to mention “OTHER THAN HONORABLE” discharge from the Navy for drug abuse and being a “pole smoker”!!!

        1. You are so full of crap. We all know you are Alberto Velarde the loser. Your mental disease is getting worse or the meth has fried your brain. So psychotically delusional. Good laugh though.

          1. Again wrong! But yes your imaginary friend lives at Ridgemar. Madmike is a stupid pig. Always wrong.

        2. You live in a shit hole government-subsidized apartment on the east side. I doubt that you have ever seen one thousand dollars in your miserable life!

  4. Trump bunch losing Badly on this site. Just like their Worthless Insect Trump! Score Update! Racist Old Retired Pigs, Zero. Democrat Progressives, 100! Good thing the Trump Bunch won’t be around much longer, says the Grim Reaper!

    1. Losing? Too funny moron. You’re losing on this site so bad you have to use 60 made up aliases to take us on. But in reality there is only one of you. Dumbass psycho Alberto Velarde. BTW – You are a Democrat communist not progressive.

  5. AlbertoMelaMuerde, the living, walking, talking Abortion survivor. No wonder he hates Women. He grew up with half a Brain, and only one Testicle. Don’t blame you for being angry all the time. I would be TOO!.

  6. New Immigrant Processing Center? The CBP new recruits are high Fiving each other. Yey! More innocent Women and Children to abuse and humiliate. All the Racist old farts will volunteer to come watch the Immigrants while the CBP guards go to lunch. Tring to get back at the mistreatment their grandfathers received when they arrived in America!

    1. You’re an idiot. Your buddy Obama locked up kids in cages back in 2015 and deported more men, woman and children than Bush and Trump combined. BTW – Unlike your illegal grandfathers my grandfathers were born in the U.S.A. LMAO.

      1. There was no USA back then,it was Native American Land and then Mexico until the White man, burned, raped, and pillaged their way from Coast to Coast and then had the balls to call it Manifest Destiny! FYI my ancestors gave your ragged ancestors food and water after they arrived, otherwise they were so useless they would have starved and your Nazi ass wouldn’t be alive today.

        1. uxcrement your ancestors couldn’t keep this country because you didn’t have the will, the know how or the balls to make something of it like WE did. You didn’t give us anything. We took it from you. and until you become one of US, we will keep taking it from you. US by the way is AMERICAN.

  7. White madmikes are still useless. We feed them, build their homes, take care of their children, take care of their moms (sometime we also fill their wife “needs”), etc etc. STILL USELESS.

    1. sure alberto. You do all that for us and you do it for free. Maybe when you get a green card you’ll get paid minimum wage. But I’m sure you rather stay in section 8 housing.
