Artesia, NM (KTSM) — No undocumented immigrants are being allowed into or out of an immigration facility in Artesia, New Mexico.
Earlier this month we took you on a tour of that facility. Arrivals and deportations of immigrants have been halted due to the spread of chicken pox at the center.
Women and children at the facility are currently being vaccinated and two people with chicken pox have been quarantined as a precaution.
