Rochester will not house undocumented children 

Rochester will not house undocumented children because the federal government is no longer looking for temporary shelters, says a letter from Mayor Lovely Warren.

The owner of the Blossom South Nursing and Rehabilitation Center on Monroe Avenue, Israel Segal, was interested in turning the vacant property over to the federal government for use as a shelter. Warren said the city would explore the matter.

But the US Department of Health and Human Services says that's no longer necessary, Warren says in the letter. The news ends the city's discussion of the matter, she says, but "I was overwhelmed at the support that our service providers, faith leaders, and other concerned citizens were willing to offer these children in need."

Many people are calling the flow of thousands of immigrant children across the US-Mexico border, often unaccompanied by an adult, a humanitarian crisis.
