The Pentagon over the weekend confirmed reports that it has approved a third military site in California to house the unaccompanied migrant children coming across the United States’ southern border in record numbers in recent months.
A defense official said in a statement Saturday:
On April 2, the Department of Defense approved a request for assistance from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for facilities and land to temporarily house unaccompanied children at Camp Roberts, California.
This support is being provided on a fully-reimbursable basis. DoD only provides this kind of support where it has no impact on military readiness and its ability to conduct its primary missions.”
We refer you to HHS for more detail about the manner in which they will avail themselves of Camp Roberts and the number of children they expect to place there.
Camp Roberts is located approximately midway between San Francisco and Los Angeles. It
