Dayton names sites for immigrants, despite foes

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — A southwest Ohio city has told federal authorities it has two places that could be used to shelter children from Central America.

Dayton officials say they responded to a U.S. government request in identifying potential housing. Their statement Tuesday evening came two days after a Dayton-area congressman and other southwest Ohio officials sent a letter to President Barack Obama saying Mayor Nan Whaley doesn’t speak for the region in offering to house children of the border influx.

Whaley says if the federal government asks for help, the city has an obligation to consider it. One spot offered is a former Navy Reserve facility and the other a vacant former business property.

There’s disagreement across the country about dealing with what Obama has called a humanitarian crisis.
