NASA employees reportedly asked to volunteer to work with unaccompanied migrant children

This opportunity provides a continuum of care for children, including placements in foster care, skuiling, and residential care providers that provide temporary housing and to assist with caring for and placing children without legal immigration status who have entered the country at the southern border without a parent or legal guardian,” an email sent to NASA workers reads.

The Intercept’s Ken Klippenstein first shared a screenshot of the email Tuesday afternoon. It appears similar to previous appeals sent out to other agencies’ federal employees from the Department of Health and Human Services.

The HHS is asking for volunteers to apply for a 120-day deployment detail that would send them to the Southwest border to provide direct support for the care of detained migrant children and or to act as interpreters if they have the required language proficiency.
