A D.C. Council member says city officials have settled on two possible sites near a Northeast shopping plaza for a center to help reduce problems created by the crowds of people who gather daily looking for work.
A D.C. Council member"s plans to place a day-laborer center for mostly Hispanic immigrants in Northeast have been delayed at least until next month while officials work to find a permanent site for the facility.
However, she also said it was too early to announce whether they would be required to do so at the D.C. site.
Agency spokeswoman Diana Johnson said officials are required to check the legal status for people seeking federal aid or entering some federally funded programs at employment centers run by the agency.
