Message from the Mayor - Unaccompanied Children from the Border
Posted Date: 7/14/2014

(Update July 14, 2014)

There is quite a bit of misinformation surrounding the possibility that Grand Prairie could become a processing site for some of the children in South Texas who entered the United States illegally. I would like to take a few moments to address some of those concerns.

  1. No decision has been made regarding the use of Lamar Alternative Center as a potential processing facility.
  2. There will be a meeting at 7 p.m. on Thursday, July 17, at the GPISD Education Center at 2606 S. Belt Line where information regarding this process will be presented. (Item 11.E of the agenda)
  3. This will not be an agenda item at the Grand Prairie City Council meeting because this particular issue falls within the jurisdiction of the school district and not the city.
