Biden administration signs five-year contract to house migrant children in North Carolina neighborhood:
The Biden administration will begin housing unaccompanied migrant children smuggled by cartels across the southern border in a North Carolina community, the Washington Examiner has learned.
Potentially thousands of parentless children will be detained at an abandoned school campus within a middle-class neighborhood in Greensboro, North Carolina, before the children are released to sponsors across the country. The government is hiring 800 workers to staff the facility, the American Hebrew Academy said in a statement, an indication of just how wide-scale the operation will become in the next few weeks.
The children are slated to begin arriving in Greensboro as early as next weekend for what could be a massive, long-term undertaking by the Biden administration to detain immigrant children away from the border. The campus is located behind a Target store and directly across the street from a large residential neighborhood.
"It was made perfectly for the situation," Guilford County Commission Chairman Skip Alston told KFMY. "We are dealing with children. That's what we have to look into. ... These children didn't ask to be put in those positions. Unfortunately, parents put them in those positions."
The Office of Refugee Resettlement, a program of the Department of Health and Human Services's Administration for Children and Families, quietly signed a five-year contract with the American Hebrew Academy in Greensboro this month, allowing the federal government to take over the campus into 2027. --->READ MORE HERE

Plan to house migrant children in Greensboro faces scrutiny from NC members of Congress:
Republicans representing North Carolina in Congress are seeking answers about why immigrant children are being resettled on the property of the American Hebrew Academy in Greensboro.
The board of the academy announced two weeks ago that it had entered into a 5-year contract — with an option for 5 more years — with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to provide a transitional campus for immigrant children awaiting reunification with family members or others in the U.S.
The academy has 100 acres on a gated campus at 4334 Hobbs Road that includes 31 buildings of 412,712 square feet, an $18 million athletic center and natatorium, a variety of athletic fields and even a 22-acre lake. The facility would be used to provide housing, classrooms and other services for children who are unaccompanied or who are waiting for family members and sponsors.
On Thursday members of Congress, led by 9th District Rep. Richard Hudson (R-Concord), sent a letter to HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra and Office of Refugee Resettlement Acting Director Andrea Chapman to ask about the plan, which emerged as a possibility in May 2021. --->READ MORE HERE
