EL PASO, Texas — Border officials in El Paso, Texas, this spring began separating migrants in federal custody based on nationality due to hostility and tension between Central and South American detainees who were being held in the same cells and even areas of facilities, according to several federal agents. The practice continued at least into June.

In Border Patrol facilities across the southern border, detainees are assigned to holding cells or rooms that are organized by unaccompanied children, families, adult men, and adult women. However, agents in El Paso said they chose to add additional groups within those categories earlier this spring after they started seeing tensions rise between different nationalities.

The article goes on to state the following:

“There’s friction between Cubans, Brazilians, and the Central Americans,” one Border Patrol agent told the Washington Examiner.

El Paso is the only one of the Border Patrol’s nine regions along the U.S.-Mexico border that has seen Cuban citizens arrive at the border this year. The agent said when Cubans were introduced into facilities, detainees did not respond well. The sector opted to additionally separate people based on country of origin to avoid verbal or physical fights among people being held in confined spaces.

    This is absolutely crazy, and they are going to let these illegals out into our communities?
    When will this Hell end on America because that’s what it is.?

    If they can’t handle being together in detaining facilities then they should be allowed to be released into our country they should be sent home

    Duh, and the politicians promote this. America no longer a melting pot, but a salad bowl. If they can’t get along while being fed, housed and medically treated on the American dime, what makes anyone think they will get along when released into our communities?
