LITTLE ROCK, AR (KAIT/KARK) - Little Rock Air Force Base could soon house immigrant children brought to the country via the southern border, according to a report from Little Rock NBC affiliate KARK.

KARK, citing a report from the Washington Post, said LRAFB is one of four military bases that may temporarily house the children.

The government says those children are in the custody of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the department is looking for suitable housing for those children.

"At the end of the day, the kids are dragged into it," Alike Chambers said. "You can't do much about it."

KARK reports that officials at LRAFB confirm HHS plans to visit the site soon.
