Rep. Anna Eshoo, D-Palo Alto, announced today that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) will not select Moffett Field as a temporary influx shelter for migrant children at this time.
HHS announced last week that it was conducting an assessment of the NASA Ames Research Facility at Moffett Field for potential use as a temporary care facility for unaccompanied children.
“HHS informed me today that they are no longer moving forward with consideration of Moffett Field as a shelter for unaccompanied children at this time. As chairwoman of the Health Subcommittee that oversees HHS, I will continue to do everything I can to ensure unaccompanied children arriving at our borders and in the care of HHS are treated humanely and with dignity.” said Rep. Eshoo.
