Overflow Facility for Migrant Children to Re-Open

Will house unaccompanied minors 13 years and older.

The Department of Health and Human Services said it is re-opening an overflow facility for unaccompanied migrant children at Carrizo Springs, Texas. It can house up to 700 minors age 13 and older who are apprehended at the Mexico border.

The move comes in response to executive orders signed by President Biden as he works to undo policies implemented by the previous administration.

The placement for children who do not need to be quarantined for coronavirus is set to begin in about 15 days.

A report from the Border Patrol says agents have seen increases in apprehensions among Central American families and unaccompanied children in the Rio Grande Valley and Tucson, Arizona, sectors, as the number of migrants looking for the easing of immigration restrictions by the current administration grows.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For God’s will to prevail regarding the immigration policies of the United States.
  • For the children who arrive in the U.S. without parents or guardians.
  • For the U.S. officials who will be taking care of the health and well-being of the unaccompanied children.
