Members of Arkansas Delegation on Potential Housing of Unaccompanied Minors: "This is Irresponsible and Against the Wishes of Arkansans"
Dec 19 2016
“The Department of Health and Human Services should not use the Ouachita facility to shelter unaccompanied illegal immigrant minors,” they said. “This is irresponsible and against the wishes of Arkansans who were not consulted about this decision. HHS is unable to provide basic information about who may reside at this facility, where these immigrants come from, or how long this shelter will last, and the potential risk to public safety is enormous. That is why we are calling on HHS to immediately halt any plans to use this facility as an immigration shelter. There are safer options for this facility that would that would be better for the community and Arkansas."
