Federal immigration officials on Friday scrapped a plan to open a shelter for young refugees on the Saint Paul’s College campus after more than 1,000 people turned out to angrily denounce the move.

“We have heard the concerns of many of the residents and leaders of Lawrenceville about the proposal to temporarily care for unaccompanied children at the now-closed Saint Paul’s College,” said Mark A. Weber, spokesman for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, in a statement. “We have taken this proposal off the table and will move on quickly to identify other sites to temporarily house these vulnerable children.”
