The Biden Administration has signed a five-year contract to start leasing an abandoned school building in Greensboro, North Carolina, to house migrant children who enter the country alone, FOX News reports.
The President defended his decision after Republican lawmakers called him out for contradicting his previous claims.
“This incident underscores the need to go after the multi-billion dollar criminal smuggling industry preying on migrants and leading to far too many innocent deaths,”
Biden said in a statement addressing the recent deaths of 51 people found in an overheated truck outside San Antonio, Texas who are believed to be undocumented migrants crossing into the US.
According to The Washington Examiner,
“The American Hebrew Academy will [not only house children…] but also be contracted to provide the educational programming,”
the school’s board of directors said in a statement.
“The federal agency will provide classroom education, mental and medical health services, case management, translation services, legal services, and recreational facilities. The program will also provide unification services that facilitate timely release of minors to family members or other vetted sponsors,”
according to ORR.
