IMMIGRATION

US reaches, suspends agreement to house immigrant children on rural Virginia campus

U.S. officials are looking into temporarily housing hundreds of Central American immigrant children and teenagers on the campus of a closed college in rural Virginia.

Administration for Children and Families spokesman Kenneth J. Wolfe told The Associated Press in an email Monday that the idea is on hold to allow the community to discuss it. He said a Thursday meeting is scheduled on the idea to house the immigrants at St. Paul's College in the tiny tobacco-farming community of Lawrenceville.

Brunswick County Sheriff Brian Roberts says residents are worried about security and are upset no one told them about the plan.

The children and teenagers were caught entering the country illegally following a surge in border crossings. They are being held on an interim basis at military bases.
