U.S. to close three interim shelters housing migrant children : U.S. media

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 08/05/2014 - 17:41

A view of the sleeping quarters at the Naval Base Ventura County Temporary Shelter in Port Hueneme, California(Reuters) - Three interim shelters that have housed thousands of children who have come unaccompanied to the United States from Central America will close within weeks, leading U.S. newspapers reported on Monday. More than 7,700 children have been sheltered in facilities on military bases in California, Texas, and Oklahoma since they were opened in May and June, the Department of Health and Human Services said, according to media reports. "We are able to take this step because we have proactively expanded capacity to care for children in standard shelters, which are significantly less costly facilities," agency spokesman Kenneth Wolfe was reported as saying. "At the same time, we have seen a decrease in the number of children crossing the Southwest border," he said, but warned of uncertainty over the possibility of future waves of migrants.
