[ARCHIVED] Asylum Seekers Arrive at Former Armory in Las Cruces

Asylum Seekers 050819

The first group of asylum seekers to be sheltered at the former armory in Las Cruces arrived late afternoon today. The armory is located at 1300 Brown Road.

News media is not allowed on the property but will be allowed outside the gate on Florida Court, which is off Valley Drive one block north of Brown Road.

Approximately 25 asylum seekers will spend the night at the armory due to other area shelters reaching capacity. The facility is not yet equipped to process paperwork so it will serve solely as an overnight shelter.
