The US Navy is reportedly planning to build sprawling immigrant detention centres on military bases, amid a Trump crackdown at the US-Mexico border.
A draft memo obtained by Time magazine outlines plans to build “austere” tent camps to house 25,000 migrants.
The memo says the camps would be built on abandoned airfields in California, Alabama, and Arizona.
Another camp near San Francisco is being designed fur as many as 47,000 people, the memo says.
