Senator Coats’ Letter Seeks Information On Immigrant Children

Senator Dan Coats and Indiana's seven Republican congressmen have sent a letter to the Department of Health and Human Services seeking specific information on the nearly 250 unaccompanied immigrant children said to be in the state. The lawmakers want to know where the children are being placed, saying they want to ensure that sponsors are committed to providing a safe and caring environment. The letter also says with school starting, the lawmakers want to make sure local communities have the information they need about the children. The letter follows comments by Governor Pence asking President Obama to deport the children.
