Immigration officials to build ‘hotel-like’ facility for illegals – Twitter immediately blows up in outrage!

A plan by federal immigration officials to house illegal immigrants in ‘hotel-like,’ taxpayer-funded detention centers is drumming up serious backlash on social media.

This week, immigration officials in Dimmit County, Texas announced they are considering a detention center in a 27 acre area that will have, apparently, ‘hotel-like’ conditions, according to The Guardian.

“Our facility offers a community-based alternative that will allow children to live in a home setting, attend school, and access critical legal and social services,”Stratton Oilfield Systems said in a pitch to potential partners.

“They want to have it with no fence,” said Mike Uriegas, a commissioner in Dimmit County, who says he first met with Stratton Oilfield Systems two weeks ago. “They don’t want to appear like a prison or detention center.”

For open borders advocates, that plan is not lax enough. Instead, they’d prefer illegal immigrants coming into the country to be able to roam freely without being detained.

The Twitter-verse, on the other hand, had a much different take on the issue. Take a look:
