Escondido Mayor Sam Abed, a representative from Congressman Duncan Hunter’s office, local residents, and anti-illegal immigration activists showed up to voice opposition to the project. Congressman Hunter has posted a letterto Escondido’s Mayor stating the annual cost of running the facility as approximately $6-7 million.


Congressman Hunter’s letter stated, “The solution must involve changes to the [Obama] Administration’s underlying immigration policies and a commitment to return the children to their homes as soon as possible.”

A source present at the meeting reported that the facility proposed to house children from the ages of six to seventeen, but would likely house mainly those in their early teens, based on statements made during the meeting.
