An internal email sent to NASA employees on Tuesday – leaked to The Intercept’s Ken Klippenstein – asks the space agency’s employees to volunteer to care for “children without legal immigration status.”
The greatest need is in the area of “youth care” and “conducting and translating intake information.” The four locations specifically mentioned are San Diego, California as well as Dallas, San Antonio, and Fort Bliss in Texas.

Last month, ABC News reported that NASA has been asked by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for the possible use of the Moffett Federal Airfield in Mountain View, California as a site for housing migrant children. NASA spokesman Darryl Waller told ABC that the airfield is a “currently vacant property” and that its use will “have no impact on NASA’s ability to conduct its primary missions.”
The report was met with disbelief even among some Democrat activists, however, who called the idea “unacceptable.”

Unacceptable! A NASA site in California is being considered as a potential location to house migrant children, according to sources briefed on the plans. https://t.co/6LQOIps3ek— March For Science (@MarchForScience) April 6, 2021
