The federal government wants to lease a 100,000-square-foot facility in Central Florida to house undocumented migrant children, and Lakeland is in the southwest corner of a large swath of Central Florida where the site could be placed. (The area under consideration stretches nearly to Deltona and includes Orlando, Kissimmee and parts of Leesburg.) The General Services administrative is soliciting offers for sites, and the facility could open by November 2020.
