The San Diego Union-Tribune, Task And Purpose: Camp Pendleton To House 47,000 Migrants In ‘Temporary And Austere’ Detention
San Diego County could become a destination for tens of thousands of unauthorized immigrants to be housed indefinitely by the U.S. Government, under the zero-tolerance policy implemented by President Donald Trump.
According to a report published Friday afternoon by Time magazine, military leaders are drawing up plans to create a tent city at Camp Pendleton to detain as many as 47,000 illegal immigrants from Central America and other locations over the coming months.
The facility at Camp Pendleton would be one of multiple temporary detention centers designated to house immigrants making their way into the United States.
According to an internal memo obtained by Time magazine, the U.S. Navy has been directed to establish “temporary and austere” encampments on military installations in Alabama, Arizona, and California that each could host tens of thousands of detainees.
