The Department of Homeland Security could soon set up offices in Littlefield. Homeland Security representatives and Congressman Randy Neugebauer toured the Bill Clayton Detention Center in Littlefield on Wednesday.
The Department of Homeland Security is looking for a building that can be used to hold foreign nationals on immigration violations. And since the detention center in Littlefield is a first class facility, it's on the list of possibilites. "We need to make sure we utilize our resources before we build new facilites around the country," said Congressman Randy Neugebauer.
The Homeland Security has not made a decision yet. But, representatives did say they were impressed with Littlefield and the fact the facility would need very little renovation, if any.
