FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. - According to Wellspring Lutheran Services, Farmington Hills can expect what the government refers to as "unaccompanied alien children" by late summer.

Those coming to the Farmington Hills campus all are boys between 14 and 17 years old. Those going to Bay City, Mich. are boys and girls between the ages of 6 and 13.

Wellspring says its focus is on shelter, nutrition and stability for these children while Wellspring and Lutheran Social Services of Michigan work with immigration on each child's case.

Here is the organization's official statement:

"In its deliberation, the Board of Directors of Wellspring Lutheran Services recognized that this is a complex, multi-faceted issue with its roots in U.S. immigration policy, current politics, economic challenges of our times and a myriad of other contributors. But Wellspring's focus is on these children, who are in need of care, love, stability while government officials manage each particular case."
