Cincinnati charity wants to house immigrant kids

CINCINNATI, July 25, 2014 (AP): A Cincinnati charity says it has applied for a federal grant aimed at bringing to Ohio some of the immigrant children who have flooded across the U.S. border recently.

Catholic Charities Southwestern Ohio has applied for the grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to help house the children. More than 57,000 minors have arrived since October, mostly from Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador because of drug violence and other problems in those countries.

Ted Bergh, CEO of Catholic Charities, tells The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/1zbA9Wt ) that the children would be housed in a ``dormitory environment'' that could provide short-term shelter, education and counseling.

Federal law requires that children be placed in protective care while their immigration cases are resolved.
