Rep. Kilmer: ICE wouldn’t grant me access due to security, chicken pox concerns
TACOMA, Wash. -- A congressman wasn't allowed access to an detention center in Tacoma to talk with immigrants separated from their families, in part due to concerns about chicken pox. Officials with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Immigration and Customs Enforcement canceled a planned tour of the Tacoma Northwest Detention Center over the weekend at first due to "security concerns," Rep. Derek Kilmer said.
