Skip to comments.Bill Would Force Feds to Reveal Housing Locations of Child Illegals
Posted on 07/16/2014 4:04:59 PM PDT by Tailgunner Joe
Rep. Lee Terry, a Nebraska Republican, has introduced a bill that would force the federal government to tell states and Congress the locations where it is keeping the illegal immigrant children flooding the southern border.
Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman has been making the same demand since some of the children were housed in his state without his prior knowledge. Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin made the same complaint Wednesday.
Terry told Fox News Channel's "Your World with Neil Cavuto" on Wednesday his bill would force the Department of Homeland and Security and the Department of Health and Human Services to tell governors and Congress the locations and how many children were being housed at each facility.
The bill also would require the government to notify those entities of each illegal immigrant's court date and whether he or she showed up for court.
So far, the bill has only Republican co-sponsors, Terry told Fox News.
He said he just met with Homeland Security and HHS officials who assured him that notifications already are taking place. But, Terry added, Gov. Heineman says 200 children were recently delivered to Nebraska, and no one was told beforehand.
"Our schools are surprised. The clinics that they are going to get immunizations are surprised," Terry said. "So, obviously, we're not being told the truth."
Many of the children are arriving with diseases such as tuberculosis, officials with the Texas Department of State Health Services have said.
"It seems to me like they don't want the public knowing what is really going on and what the health consequences are of this humanitarian crisis," Terry told Fox News.

This is a great idea.
Will be THE campaign issue to run on for conservatives.
There is no sanity here.
With this media Obama and his like can DO ANYTHING.
No one speaks up. We die with a whimper.
That’s going nowhere under the Chicago gang.
They should not only publish where they are being housed, but how many are at each location, their ages, sex, country of origin, who has been paid thus far for this expense - including the cost of the EBT cards -, the government’s future plans, the anticipated cost and where this money is going to come from.
It is, and that's a rare event out of the DC crowd. I can't imagine how anyone could vote against it and get re-elected.
Criminal Records....Medical Conditions...and whether theyve yet registered to vote for Obies Party ...
You must not have much of an imagination. (no offense, but...we ARE talking about Dems here).
Of course, the illegals won't be dumped on the beautiful and gay people in Martha's Vineyard, Provincetown and Wellfleet.
While other moonbat states with moonbat governors, like Connecticut and Maryland, have refused the illegals, Massachusetts' moonbat governor is welcoming them. Why? Because he's not up for reelection this year. He's a lame duck.
Why shouldn’t they be able to publish where they are living? We can find out where sex offenders live. We can find out pretty much where anyone is living online. Our own government knows everything about us. Why special protections for criminals who are invading America?
No one speaks up. We die with a whimper.
This is what happens when you do not have an engaged opposition party to a rampaging totalitarian like Obama.
I have a really hard time buying this. He's the GOVERNOR and this issue is front and center right now. HOW can he not have known, unless everyone surrounding him is blind, deaf and/or dumb?
FWIW, I don’t think extra spanish speaking central americans showing up in minority and otherwise already challenged schools is going to play real well. Even (former?) Obama supporters are going to worry about who’s moving in.
I wonder under what law the federal government is housing and transporting illegal immigrants.
What’s Cuomo’s position on this?
Our government is aiding and abetting alien invaders. Our government is doing it in secrecy. Invaders are allowed to fly across county on our dime without proper ID while the TSA only terrorizes citizens. Why we haven’t stormed Washington at this point is beyond me.
Put the military on the border. Until then shut up.
Ha Ha Ha Haaaaaaaaa! And you think a worthless bill will influence the communists government running this Country? Sure!
Theater for the rubes. How about a bill requiring deportation on contact and funding all processing and maintenance of illegal aliens stateside with cuts to IRS, EPA, and Department of Education budgets? This must end now.
Actually, nevermind the bill—0commie would never sign it. Just go ahead and slash the aforementioned agencies’ budgets as punishment.
“It seems to me like they don’t want the public knowing what is really going on and what the health consequences are of this humanitarian crisis,” Terry told Fox News.
Captain Obvious speaks!
That's a terrible idea. I can't imagine the Cape and SE MA absorbing any more of a criminal element.
