Escobar addresses status of migrant center during town hall meeting

Politics

El Paso Congresswoman Veronica Escobar held her monthly town hall this morning, her first geared towards the community’s veterans.

At the meeting, Escobar was asked about the status of the Central Processing Center for the migrants who have been seeking asylum in the U.S. through El Paso.

Now, with the bidding process over for the CPC, she says she expects more specifics on that this week.

“We’ve been in conversations with Commissioner McAleenan’s office, I’ve asked Senator Cornyn to join me in calling for that, he agreed, and he will be an ally on that front,” Escobar told KTSM. “We should get a timeline early next week.” 

Escobar adds that she hopes to have a Central Processing Center going in a few months.
