Marygrove College open to housing children entering at southern border

DETROIT (WKZO) -- Marygrove College in Detroit is offering to provide help in caring for children from Central America who have been entering the U.S. through the southern border.

The president of the Catholic institution of almost three-thousand students Thursday called the matter a refugee and humanitarian crisis. Pope Francis this week insisted that the children should be "welcomed and protected" upon arrival.

A couple of dozen people this week protested outside a Vassar, Michigan facility where Wolverine Human Services is interested in providing a temporary home.
