DALLAS, Texas–Houston Independent School District (ISD) may soon join Dallas ISD in supplying vacant public schools as potential sites to house Central American and Mexican illegal immigrant minors that crossed the border into Texas. The Houston Chronicle reported that federal officials toured Terrell Middle School in Northeast Houston. The district closed the Trinity Gardens neighborhood middle school in 2001. It has been used as a storage facility since then. Houston ISD press secretary Sheleah Reed described the middle school visit as a preliminary step should the federal officials decide they want a local shelter for the recent influx of unaccompanied alien children, according to the article. Emotions are running high in the community over this pending decision. Longtime resident Bernadette Lancelin told KHOU News that she raised three children and six grandchildren in the surrounding neighborhood and expressed her frustration that the school would be reopened for non-citizens and not for “our (local) kids.” Officials from FEMA, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and the General Services Administration completed the campus walk-through with Texas Democratic Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee to determine if the building was structurally sound for use as a shelter. Lee attempted to calm Lancelin, who was there, privately. The scene was captured
