'An Issue for All States’: Non-Border States Demand Answers on Illegal Immigration
Six governors of non-border states are demanding answers from the Obama administration on the illegal immigration crisis.
The governors sent a letter to the White House, which reads, “We are concerned that there will be significant numbers who will end up using the public schools, social services and health systems largely funded by the states.”
Gov. Pat McCrory (R-N.C.) is among the six governors who wrote to the White House on illegal immigration. He was on “Fox and Friends” to discuss the crisis.
“The immigration issue has never been just a border state issue […] it's an issue for all states including North Carolina,” he said.
McCrory said that more than 1,000 kids have come to North Carolina, and communication has been poor. He said he is concerned because the children are being connected with sponsors, but who is doing the background checks on these sponsors? McCrory said many of the sponsors are illegal or undocumented workers, so he wants to know how a thorough background check can be performed to protect the children from illegal activities.
