Shelter unable to be found in Appleton area for unaccompanied illegal kids

APPLETON, WI (WTAQ) - Leaders in the Appleton area say they cannot find room for unaccompanied children who've been crossing into the U.S. at the Mexican border.

The federal government was hoping to locate up to 400 children in the Fox Valley, as they escape violence in El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala.

However, the Appleton Post-Crescent says Outagamie County officials are concerned about funding and education for the youngsters.

The U.S. Health and Human Services Department said federal money would pay for the shelter itself.

The agency has been looking around the country for large shelter facilities within 100 miles of airports.
