    Apparently, lefties think illegals deserve better treatment than our military.
    The military do that as part of their jobs - for which they are paid - in preparation for combat conditions. They also have real quarters in which to live when not in the field. Furthermore, servicemembers volunteer for that these days - or perhaps you have forgotten the draft ended 45 years ago ... ?

    So no, not like our military in the field.

    Illegals voluntarily come into our country illegally.

    You expect criminals to be treated better than our military.

    Disgusting!

    Refugees seeking asylum are being treated like criminals — by actual criminals.

    Citing federal officials and “other sources familiar with the plans,” McClatchy reported on Tuesday that the Department of Health and Human Services—which is responsible for the longterm detention of undocumented minors—plans to tour a number of military bases across Texas. There, they will assess the ability of each base to sustain tent cities for anywhere from one to five thousand children as they are slowly processed through the immigration court system.

    Last month, the Washington Post reported that HHS officials were considering using military bases to house unaccompanied minors.

    According to McClatchy, current federal housing for unaccompanied minors is at 95 percent capacity, with approximately 10,000 children being held. That number is expected to grow as the Trump administration ramps up its efforts to prosecute any adult who enters the U.S. without authorization and to separate them from their children.

    Why doesn't Trump simply use the FEMA concentration camps that Obama had the Deep State build for him?

    A] Children awaiting asylum hearings are not illegal. They are by law aliens. Law signed by President Bush.

    B]You are correct, a tent in the US is 1000 times better than living under the constant threat of drug cartels and kidnappers.

    That being said, there is no real reason to house kids in tents...other than Trump's lack of vision, inability to critical think, and laziness.

    Trump is motivated by vengefulness. If Trump can inflict a little hurt on these kids and their parents...that is a win-win for him.

    No reason??? Have you looked at the numbers of people and children coming? Estimates are between 250-300k people a year. Where do you put enough people to be the capital city of many states?

    When the entire city Boise, or Des Moines, or San Bernardino show up at your door, where do you put them? This is the annual number. So have them show up annually and make sure to settle and house the prior city before the next one shows up.
