According to the Department of Defense, the Department of Health and Human Services has asked the Pentagon to help them house unaccompanied migrant minors at Joint Base San Antonio and Fort Bliss in El Paso, Texas.

Health and Human Services are requiring the use of a vacant dorm at Lackland and for a field in Blis. If approved the responsibility for migrants minors will continue under the Department of Health and Human Services.

The request came yesterday and the Department of Defense spokesman John Kirby says they’re still evaluating the situation and haven’t made a decision yet.
