heads of government agencies seeking 'volunteer deployments' for up to 120 days

(FOX NEWS) – The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has sent a memo to various heads of government agencies seeking “volunteer deployments” for up to 120 days to help border officials deal with the surge of unaccompanied children crossing the border, Fox News has confirmed. 

“We are actively working to screen, process and deploy these volunteers while continuing our recruitment efforts and exploration of other avenues to bolster staff resources at the border,” an OPM spokesperson said.

Kathleen McGettigan, acting director of OPM, said the federal agency is partnering with the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to support the Biden administration’s “urgent efforts” to care for the unaccompanied migrant children who have crossed into the U.S. through the southern border.

The facilities are located along the southwest U.S. border, including Dallas, San Diego, San Antonio, and Ft. Bliss. Locations will extend to other geographic areas according to need, McGettigan said in her memo.
