By the time Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam realized what was going on in his state, the damage had been done.
Nearly 800 illegal immigrant minors were recently dropped off with absolutely no federal warning. In a letter to Barack Obama, Haslam said his administration only found out about the clandestine shipment after stumbling across a post on the Department of Health and Human Services’ website.
Beyond the insult of not being informed about the delivery, the governor complained that the presence of these illegals presents widespread safety concerns for those in his state.
“An influence of unaccompanied immigrant children to the state, with little information being made available to the public or to state leaders, creates confusion and could be very problematic.”
In his letter, Haslam demands a number of answers from the Obama administration, including whether the illegals were screened for potential diseases, where they were dropped off, and whether their sponsors received a background check.
