[GOV] Governor Pence Calls on President Obama to Provide More Timely Information, Return Unaccompanied Children to Their Families
Start Date: 7/29/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM

Entry Description

Indianapolis – In a letter sent today to President Obama regarding the unaccompanied children crossing the nation’s Southern border, Governor Mike Pence calls on the federal government to quickly resolve the crisis and provide more timely information to the states. Last week, after published media reports stated that unaccompanied children have been placed with sponsors in the state of Indiana, the federal government notified the state that 245 unaccompanied children are in Indiana.  

In addition, the Governor writes, “Those who have crossed our border illegally should be treated humanely and with decency and respect, but they should be returned expeditiously to their home countries to be reunited with their families rather than being dispersed around the United States in sponsored placement or long-term detention facilities.” 

The letter in full can be found attached.
