It’s Amazing What You’ll Find on the Internet

Out of curiosity, I completed an internet search seeking to determine, simply, if there were any immigrant child detention centers in Arizona.  Considering Arizonians back and forth position on illegal immigration I was pretty sure no one would stand for any such facility in the state.   To my shock, I was able to find, not only the number of centers but, the exact location of the centers.  There are 9 in the Phoenix Metropolitan Area alone !!

 

A NEW LEAF operates two of them.  SOUTHWEST KEY PROGRAM, INC.  operates the other 7.  4 are in Mesa.  3 are in Phoenix.  1 is in Glendale.  1 is in Peoria.  One of the facilities in Phoenix is 5 streets west of, and two blocks north of, Phoenix Children’s Hospital.  I can get there by bicycle.

 

The centers are referred to as “foster care centers”.  Apparently, we here in Arizona have a huge problem with illegal immigration until we can make some money off of it.  Then, we welcome it with open arms.
