Housing Immigrant Children

Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery is being considered as a site to house immigrant children. A spokeswoman for Governor Robert Bentley says the Federal Emergency Management Agency on Wednesday, notified the governor's chief of staff about the possible plan. A spokesman for the Secretary of Defense says the Department of Health and Human Services still has to analyze and decide whether the base could house children. Bentley is one of six governors who sent a letter to President Barack Obama on Tuesday expressing concerns over the possibility of an influx of immigrant children. The governors are concerned that states will end up with additional costs for public schools and other services.
