Example:

President Barack Obama's administration is forcing a military base in Oklahoma to shelter illegal immigrant children whom officials in Texas cannot handle, and Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK), the ranking member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, thinks that will only encourage more illegal immigrants to flood into the country and create national security concerns.

After the Obama administration informed the Fort Sill military base in Lawton, OK, to expect about 600 illegal immigrant children to be sent to its facilities this weekend, Inhofe noted that the Obama administration is making military bases care for illegal immigrants while Obama is "drastically reducing defense spending funds at a historically rapid rate." 

"Our nation has an immigration problem and a national security crisis, but I don't believe the answer is for our military facilities to be transformed into a center that houses, feeds, and cares for illegal immigrants," Inhofe said in a statement. "This only encourages parents to send their children unaccompanied over the border and, with the average-aged child being between 13 and 17, it exposes our military facilities to unknown security concerns."

Inhofe also said that though "the Obama administration has said that Fort Sill should be prepared to receive children as early as June 10, they have failed to provide any further details such as what is to be expected of the military facility and its service members, and for how long."

As Breitbart Texas first reported, illegal immigrants who are not from Mexico are beingwarehoused after they are detained. Those that Texas cannot handle are first being dumped in Arizona before some are shipped to other parts of the country, including Oklahoma, California, and Alabama.

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer was told that the federal government would be dumping at least a thousand illegal immigrants from Texas to Arizona this weekend. Though Arizona officials have said they have no idea where the illegal immigrants are going after they leave the Nogales holding station, some are being sent to Oklahoma and California, which will allow the Obama administration to dump even more illegal immigrants in Arizona, especially to the Nogales warehouse that reportedly has a capacity of about 1,500. A Homeland Security official told the Associated Press, "As quickly as we move them out, we get more. We believe this is just a start."

Another example:

 — Hundreds of migrant children will be sheltered at a naval facility in California amid a spike in the number of minors caught crossing the border alone, authorities said Tuesday.

A 42,000-square-foot building in Port Hueneme previously used to house naval reservists before they deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan will be used as a temporary shelter, said Vance Vasquez, a spokesman for Naval Base Ventura County.

The facility, which has bed space for 570 people, was remodeled in 2007 and is equipped with showers, bathrooms and recreation spaces for TV watching and games. It has been closed for more than a year, Vasquez said.

Federal officials say children could start arriving as soon as this week at the facility 60 miles west of Los Angeles.

The government is also housing migrant children at a military base in Texas. Officials estimate as many as 60,000 children, mostly from Central America, could be caught at the border this year, which would be a nearly 10-fold increase since 2011.

Rampant crime and poverty across Central America and a desire to reunite with parents or other relatives are thought to be driving many of the young migrants. While the children face deportation proceedings if they are caught in the U.S., many have been able to win permission from an immigration judge to stay.

Children will be flown to the Port Hueneme site from other shelters while being cleared for transfer to sponsors, said Laura Goulding, a spokeswoman for the Administration for Children and Families, a division of the Health and Human Services Department. They will receive English language instruction, arts and crafts activities, and recreation at the shelter, she said.

Goulding said most children are expected to remain at the base less than the average stay of 35 days.

It was not immediately clear what would happen to the children's deportation cases once they are transferred to Port Hueneme. A message was left for the Executive Office for Immigration Review.

These are not just "illegal aliens" they are refugee children. All of them are minors and from counties in Central & South America.

They aren't legally defined as refugees, are they?

I have a friend in CA at NB Ventura County and she said they are kept away from the people on base. They aren't allowed off base and they aren't allowed to just wander around...

I do believe that is what the immigration judge will decide.

But they are running away from violence and a crumbling home country. That is a refugee

They need to find somewhere other than military bases to house these children. Obama really does not seem to give two raw ass damns about national security. He intends to strip the military near bear, overrun our bases with civilians who have zero ties of loyalty to this country, and all of this following what, for all intents and purposes, was an open invitation to terrorist around the world to strike our military as hard and often as they wish to play International Let's Make a Deal with the US Gov (aka They Win).

So they are guarded by armed troops 24/7? Doubt it.

According to her, yes there are guards there at all times.

I have an article she posted on my facebook that they sent everyone in base housing... I'll have to find it.
