Up to 1,400 unaccompanied immigrant children could be coming to Fort Sill
By: Karen Jowers   11 hours ago
 
Unaccompanied minor immigrant children will be coming to Fort Sill, Oklahoma, to be temporarily housed, officials with the Department of Health and Human Services told Military Times.

The timing of the arrival of the children hasn’t yet been determined, according to a spokesperson for HHS’ Administration for Children and Families, who added, “No children will arrive before the facilities are prepared to safely house and care for incoming minors.”

Officials had also been considering unused federal property at Fort Benning, Georgia, and Malmstrom Air Force Base, Montana, as sites for emergency temporary shelter for the children, but those sites are no longer available, according to a spokesperson for HHS’ Administration for Children and Families. HHS officials assessed the unused property, and determined it meets the required standards.

Your life is up to you.  Spirit provides the canvas, you do the painting.  There are three kinds of people: Those who make things happen; those who watch what happens;, and, those who wonder what happened.  Take charge of your life--or someone else will.
