Could Rochester become home to immigrants?

Updated: Sunday, June 22 2014, 11:38 PM EDT

Rochester, N.Y. - U.S. Border Control said the number of minors coming from Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras through Mexico has soared more than a thousand percent.

The critical question for the White House administration: What to do with them all?

13WHAM News spoke with Greece Town Supervisor Bill Reilich, who said he's fairly certain it's an occupied building. 

"I have no interest in that," said Reilich. "It could raise a lot of concerns. That building is not built or designed for this type of use. There's too many unanswered questions right now."
