    It is outrageous that this administration would even consider using our military installations to shelter illegal immigrants who have crossed our southern border, president Obama needs to enforce our immigration laws and secure our border, not undermine our military at a time when our country is facing increased threats from radical Islamic terrorists. Last year, amid a surge of unaccompanied children streaming in from Central America, the Pentagon began housing thousands of unaccompanied illegal immigrant children at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, in Texas, Naval Base Ventura County, in California, and at Fort Sill, in Oklahoma. More than 10,000 unaccompanied minor children have streamed into United States over the Mexican border since October 1, the result of unchecked corruption and gang violence in their Central American homelands, and an effort by Mexican drug cartels to diversify into the very lucrative migrant smuggling business. The Department of Health and Human Service's Office of Refugee Relocation is required to take control of unaccompanied children once they enter the U.S., and the agency is once again being stretched to the limit by a surge that has reached an estimated 10,000 since October. In a statement, Fort Hood spokesman Tony Rheinlander said it is n’t even up to the Pentagon whether or not Fort Hood is used.
