New Immigrant Child Housing Proposed For No. Va

New permanent housing shelter will be developed in parts of Northern Virginia for unaccompanied immigrant children at the U.S. border.

The Trump Administration issued a notice that explained the plan to lease 110,000 square feet of property that will be able to house about 440 children at a time.

The property will include bedrooms, bathrooms, classrooms, and indoor and outdoor recreation areas. The shelters will be developed in one of four counties, Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun, or Prince William.

Currently, Virginia houses about 30 unaccompanied immigrant children in Bristow and Staunton.
