James Santos has "landed"

James Santos has arrived in federal prison in Victorville USP. USP means United States Penitentiary.

According to the Department of Justice:
The United States Penitentiary (USP) - Victorville in Adelanto, California, is a high security facility housing male inmates. It is part of the Victorville Federal Correctional Complex (FCC).

USP Victorville is located approximately 85 miles northeast of Los Angeles on Interstate 15.

Both Joaqina Santos and Timothy Villagomez are still listed as "in transit." I'm surprised that James Santos is in a "high security" facility.

It's also ominous to read on the website that this facility is in need of correctional officers. They're hiring and giving a 15% incentive. I wonder what that's about.

Could it be that there is no room at present that is why J Santos is in a maximum security prison? Or could it be that he is initially put there to "watch" him first to see how he adapts to prison life before being transferred to another facility?

It will be interesting to see where the other two will end up. But (to me) strange that brother and sister have not arrived yet while the husband has been sent to this facility.
But then I am not familiar with this type of events.

Could it be that because there is no release date yet on Tim that they may be trying to make a deal with him to take down some others in other crimes with information supplied by him??

It says "high" security. I don't think this is the same as "maximum" security, but still higher than medium. I'm not sure, though.

There is a lot of speculation; my own guess, fwiw, is that it's just taking time to get the paperwork done and the internet records updated.

Um, maybe "high" security is the same as "maximum" security. See this page regarding the U.S. Prison System's classification system.
