Hey Governor? The Feds are not contacting anyone, they are just spreading the disease ridden criminals as far and fast as they can, with no audit trail...
Good for him to use common sense.
maybe people really are starting to wake up.
Now to get the governors of the other 55 states to refuse them —
Just look at all those unaccompanied children!!!!
We have fools in Washington, DC!!
If you don't want them here, you hate brown people.
I don't think that a state is necessarily going to get the courtesy of a call from the feds concerning housing immigrant children. This is evidenced by the following statement from a related thread.
