News10NBC has learned that an empty warehouse in Greece is no longer being considered to house illegal immigrant children stranded in the United States.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the General Services Administration found that the Lexington Commerce Center in Greece did not meet their requirements and that they will not pursue the site further. In an email statement, they wrote, "We have learned that the assessment of the Byblos Niagara Resort in Grand Island and The Lexington Commerce Center in Greece conducted by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the General Services Administration found that the facility would not meet our requirements for the unaccompanied children effort. Consequently, we will not pursue that site further."
The federal officials toured part of the empty warehouse in Greece Monday as a possible place to house illegal immigrant children stranded in the United States.
