The temporary facility had an original goal of closing on July 13. But the nonprofit contracted to manage the shelter informed the Department of Health and Human services in July the facility would need to remain open until Aug. 13.
The closure has again been moved until Sept. 13, an HHS spokesperson told CBS News.
“HHS’ Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) is continuously monitoring bed capacity available to provide shelter for minors who arrive at the U.S. border unaccompanied and are referred to HHS for care by immigration officials, as well as the information received from interagency partners, to inform any future decisions or actions,” the spokesperson told CBS.
