Pentagon to House 20,000 Migrant Kids  06/22 06:06

   WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Pentagon will make space available on military bases 
for as many as 20,000 unaccompanied migrant children detained after illegally 
crossing the U.S.-Mexico border, says a spokesman.

   The request for temporary shelter --- amid a growing political battle over 
detained migrants --- was made by the Department of Health and Human Services 
and accepted by the Defense Department, said the spokesman, Army Lt. Col. Jamie 
Davis.

   A Pentagon memo to members of Congress, obtained by The Associated Press, 
said it has been asked to have the facilities available as early as July, 
through the end of the year. It said HHS personnel or contractors for HHS "will 
provide all care for the children," including supervision, meals, clothing, 
medical services, transportation and other daily needs.
