The Biden Administration’s proposed plan to repurpose airports as housing facilities for undocumented immigrants has stirred controversy. More than 10 million immigrants have arrived since President Biden’s inauguration, with some currently being housed in airport terminals. The plan has faced criticism from at least 70 House Republicans, arguing that airports are designed for commerce and transportation – not as shelters for undocumented migrants. The logistical complexities, including requirements for food and laundry services, further complicate matters, raising questions about the feasibility and appropriateness of using airports in this manner.
