119 Central American Migrant Children Already Living In RI

The federal government has not asked Rhode Island to shelter some of the migrant children entering the country by the thousands from Central America.  More than 100 are already living in the state.

There are currently 119 kids in Rhode Island.  That’s according to data from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

It’s unclear how long the children will be staying.
