On Friday, the Obama administration announced that it will have new centers so as to cater for the families caught passing the border. It is due to the floods with wave of immigrants that are illegal from Central America.

The deputy secretary of Department of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas said that around 39,000 people both adults and children were taken in custody since Oct 1. There is no place to keep them and many are not from Mexico where they can quickly be sent back across border. The government processed them and let them go at bus stations through the Southwest. It is with orders to report to the immigration officials at a future date.

With that process, a firestorm of protest coming from the officials of Arizona happened. It includes threat to sue by Tom Horne, the attorney general.

The families relocation seized in Texas. It is where there has been a rise of illegal immigrants. The Immigration and Customs Enforcement is still working with the processing and releasing in the Arizona families taken detained in this state.
