PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Pennsylvania governor Tom Corbett says he’s concerned about the federal government’s handling of thousands of children from Central America who have been flooding the country’s southern border.
Corbett says one of his main concerns is the health risks that may be posed by the children. The governor made his remarks during an appearance on KYW Newsradio‘s sister station in Pittsburgh, KDKA:
“From my standpoint, where they’re coming in, there are certainly enough military bases in Texas and Arizona that the federal government could at least house them there temporarily, to make sure before they even send them to any state, that their health conditions are okay for that, that they’ve had all of their immunizations and so forth, because we have a strong concern on that.”
Corbett says he’s also concerned that states apparently have no say in the matter and he’s worried about the potential costs to Pennsylvania taxpayers.
He says he feels for the children and believes they should be cared for before being returned to their home countries.
