(KPRC) As officials from three government agencies toured a vacant Houston, Texas middle school, residents from the surrounding neighborhood showed up to express their anger.
The Houston Independent School District's Terrell Middle School is being considered as a possible temporary shelter for unaccompanied Central American children.
"I'm sorry that the parents are in poor living conditions or surroundings or whatever is going on out there, I don't care," said resident Bernadette Lancelin. "I care about what's going on right here, in my own backyard, my neighborhood."
"What's going to keep them from escaping here and just moving around? Around Houston, around Trinity Gardens? What's going to keep them behind these gates? Security, really? They can't even control the border," Lancelin added.
