Plans to turn a Weslaco hotel into a child immigrant holding facility have been canceled.

We told you this week about a proposal to have the Palm Aire Hotel to hold unaccompanied illegal immigrant minors.

The non-profit group BCFS withdrew the plans just a few days later.

It cited negative backlash due to a misinformed public. The plans called for a 6,000 bed facility that would double the current BCFS facility in Harlingen.
