Unaccompanied immigrant minors staying at Fort Bliss

The Department of Health and Human Services announced that a temporary shelter set up at Fort Bliss will be available for unaccompanied children through next year.

The Doña Ana Range Complex became home to hundreds of unaccompanied minors in September of this year.

HHS said it plans to use the complex until March 31, 2017.

There are currently about 2,500 children at the facility, which is the number the building is equipped to hold.
