No plan to use Gruber to house youths

The Oklahoma National Guard Office of Public Affairs announced Wednesday that despite rumors to the contrary, no proposals have been made to Guard officials here to have Camp Gruber Training Center house undocumented children.

“We’ve received calls from various media outlets and interested citizens over the past 10 days or so concerning Camp Gruber being used to house undocumented children,” said Col. Max Moss, director of media and civilian relations. “In an effort to dispel those rumors, the Oklahoma National Guard is announcing today there have been no discussions to date with any federal agencies to bring undocumented children to Camp Gruber.”

Camp Gruber is south of Muskogee near Braggs. It  is the primary training venue for the Oklahoma National Guard.
