Gov: Feds no longer asking for Conn. sites to house child refugees

Governor Dannel Malloy says a closer look of the Southbury Training School and Old Gateway Community College buildings has revealed that neither can be used to house thousands of migrant children from Central America because of physical and safety limitations.

 

Malloy says mass housing sites, institutionalizing children is not the way to go.  He says the better way is to place children with family members.

 

He notes that the federal government is no longer asking the state to provide facilities for the children at this time.  The children are being settled with families members, more than 300 of them in Connecticut.
