Arkansas Congressional Members Oppose Possible Refugee Shelter in Royal
ROYAL, Ark. - Congressional members from the Natural State came out against a possible refugee shelter the same day representatives from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services toured the facility.
HHS is considering whether or not to transform the former Ouachita Job Corps Center in Royal into a temporary shelter for unaccompanied children, which means they have no lawful immigration status and no parent or legal guardian in the U.S.
The animosity surrounding the change has traveled from Garland County to Washington D.C.
