City, county and federal leaders will host a town hall meeting Tuesday night as hundreds of undocumented immigrants arrive in Artesia.

The Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Artesia is one of many facilities in the U.S. housing illegal immigrants from Central America. Only women and children with no criminal history will be allowed at the facility.

Officials say they will be on hand to answer any questions from the public. The meeting will take place at the Artesia Rec Center at 6 p.m.
