U.S. HHS, Not Army, to Oversee Immigrant Shelter on Fort Bliss

U.S. Health and Human Services is to manage temporary housing for immigrant kids on Fort Bliss instead of the Army. So says U.S. Congressman Tony Gonzalez who on Monday toured the one-hundred acre site between the Constitution gate and the Old Ironsides gate, off of Spur 601 on base this week. Gonzalez says the housing site can accommodate up to five-thousand asylum-seeking immigrant kids. The first five-hundred immigrant kids arrived yesterday.
