A former Walmart outside of the Village of Brockport will not be used to house children of illegal immigrants.

State Assemblyman Steve Hawley says that a member of the Department of Health and Human Services contacted him Monday to tell him the site was no longer under consideration.

He says the site in the Town of Sweden is ill-equipped to house these children for an extended period of time. The federal government listed the vacant Wal-Mart at Routes 19 and Route 31 as a possible site to house the children.

The Lexington Commerce Center in Greece is also no longer being considered as a housing option.
