HILTON HEAD, SC (AP) - The federal government says that about 160 of the more than 430 unaccompanied immigrant children apprehended at the nation's southern border and sent to South Carolina have been relocated in Beaufort and Greenville counties.
The Island Packet of Hilton Head reports that information recently released from the Department of Health and Human Services' Office of Refugee Settlement lists the counties where more than 50 children have been relocated.
Only two South Carolina counties are on the list. Greenville County has 106 relocated kids while 56 have been sent to Beaufort County. In all, 434 children were relocated to South Carolina during the first half of the year.
Beaufort County Sheriff P.J. Tanner says the children's names and addresses where they are staying have not been released.
