An elected official says the federal government is scrapping a plan to shelter hundreds of Central American children in Lawrenceville at the former St. Paul’s College. U.S. Department of Health and Human Services officials originally wanted to house the unaccompanied immigrants there after a behind-closed-doors deal with the St. Paul’s College board of trustees. Residents of Lawrenceville in Southside Virginia vehemently opposed the arrangement, saying the town’s infrastructure would be overburdened. Congressman Robert Hurt was able to temporarily halt the plan. St. Paul’s College was closed about a year ago due to financial problems.
