FINAL Supplemental Environmental Assessment for the Acquisition of land, construction, operation, and maintenance of a New Joint Processing Center in Laredo, Webb County, Texas


In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), the Department of Homeland Security procedures for implementing NEPA (DHS Directive 023-01 Rev 01 and Instruction 023-01-001 Rev 01), and the Council on Environmental Quality regulations for implementing the procedural provisions of NEPA (40 CFR Parts 1500-1508), DHS has prepared a Supplemental Environmental Assessment (SEA) to evaluate the potential impacts to the human and natural environment resulting from a proposed project to construct, operate, and maintain a Joint Processing Center (JPC) on approximately 100 acres of land in Laredo, Webb County, Texas. 

The purpose is to relieve crowding in existing DHS facilities and support humanitarian efforts along the U.S. southwestern border, by ensuring the security, placement, and successful transition of migrants and refugees.
