Not Great

The Defense Department annouced Two military bases to house migrants.

Fort Bliss is a huge Army installation that straddles the Texas-New Mexico border near El Paso. Lots of space and lots of people near a city on the US-Mexican border. A very logical choice.

Goodfellow AFB near San Angelo, Texas is not that big, nor is San Angelo, and having civilians on the base bothers me. I was stationed there and know what goes on. Nothing on the base involves weapons, but people without clearances on base is a problem.

The thing is putting these facilities on military bases severely restricts access and eliminates oversight by state child welfare agencies. If access to current facilities is limited, it is nothing like the restrictions on these facilities. It is safe to assume that this is intentional.
