Eastern California, Part 6
Once these illegal aliens are apprehended they
are transported to the U.S. Border Patrol facility at 111 N. Imperial
in El Centro. There they are processed -- which includes a photograph
and fingerprinting. Normally they are held for a few hours, offered
a meal, and then ushered back to Mexico where they can try to
cross again tomorrow.
These images are larger here to make it quite
obvious that the illegals are handled very humanely and the facilities
on the left you can see the actual holding cell and note the polish
on each surface.
Below right is the interior of the cell. The
toilet was not photographed for modesty reasons.
Note the cleanliness. The prisoners don't clean
the cells the U.S. Border Patrol does.
