As the controversy over how unaccompanied migrant children are being housed continues,  the Department of Health and Human Services is looking for real estate in five American cities for new shelters, including Atlanta.

The request for bids from the federal General Services Administration looks at an area southwest of Atlanta taking in cities like Carrollton, Fayetteville, Union City and  Griffin.
