Ground Broken on ABP Border Facility
Research and Development Center Planned

Water well is capable of 75 gpm.

Palominas, Arizona -- Ground has been broken on an 18-acre site near the Mexican border that will serve as headquarters for American Border Patrol, the non-profit Arizona organization. According to ABP head Glenn Spencer, the new facility will be used to evaluate new technologies for border enforcement. Named Camp Alan C. Nelson after the former INS Commissioner who championed Proposition 187, Spencer said the new headquarters will not be used as a launching pad for civilian border enforcement activities. "We are not a vigilante group," he said, "but we will have the capability of monitoring a large section of the border on a 24/7 basis." Spencer said a well drilled on the site was capable of producing 75 gallons per minute of excellent quality water.
