Federal government stashes illegals in Nebraska and Illinois

by Mark Brown

Sen. Mark Kirk, R-Ill. called this another Obama self inflicted wound. Some748 unaccompanied minors have been transferred from areas near the border to the Chicago area. Of the original group of 748 kids, 319 have been placed with family members or sponsors while they await an immigration hearing.

Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman said that 200 children were sent to his state without warning, and added that federal officials had refused to give him their names and locations.

The other 429 have been placed in facilities run by the Heartland Alliance, a nonprofit organization that receives grants from the Department of Health and Human Services.

Callers tot the Greg Belfrage Show weigh in on the issues. Some are concerned that the gates of South Dakota will soon be opened.
