    U.S. Homeland Security Department spokeswoman Danielle Bennett
    says the office would be used primarily for administrative
    activities, but it would include cells for holding and interviewing
    suspects. No overnight stays are anticipated.

    Park West Homeowners Association president Mark Howard says
    residents think the site is “very inappropriate” for any facility
    that may be handling detainees.

    The association has called an emergency meeting for Tuesday
    night to organization opposition to the potential move.
