Governor Fallin to tour Fort Sill shelter as numbers rise

Posted: Updated:

FORT SILL, Okla._The number of undocumented children calling Fort Sill has continued to grow. The number of children staying on Fort Sill has grown by 75 and now stands at 599.

While information concerning the children's well-being and living arrangements have been hard to come by, Governor Fallin is scheduled to tour the shelter tomorrow afternoon. Media will not be allowed on the tour but Governor Fallin plans on talking about the tour afterwards.

Job listings have recently started to pop up on websites like Craigslist offering job opportunities for health care professionals to work with the children on Fort Sill. The Department of Health and Human Services says it does not release who it hires or what businesses it contracts with for security reasons.

Until that source is identified, job seekers are advised not to give out any personal information to avoid being scammed.
