A former Tennessee Temple dorm is apparently being converted as a new home for unattended migrant children.
Brandon Lewis said he visited the site at 1914 Vance Ave. for his new Tennessee Conservative newspaper and asked an official "Are there migrant children inside?" He said he was referred to a federal government office.
Mr. Lewis said he believes the former Demoss Hall "is holding unattended migrant children from President Biden's border crisis."
He said black tarps have been draped over fences around the former dorm.
Mr. Lewis said a neighbor told him that adolescent children have been arriving in vans 6-10 at a time. He said he believes as many as 140 children may be inside.
