Fallin demands answers on illegal immigration and Fort Sill facility holding unaccompanied minors2014-07-28T15:27:14-04:002014-07-28T15:26:35-04:00Copyright 2010 The Poteau Daily News Fallin called on Obama to formally confirm and explain reports that run contrary to the messages his administration has sent to the public. In her letter, Fallin wrote that: · Vastly more than 1,200 illegal immigrants have been held at Fort Sill, despite reports designed to indicate otherwise. · The majority of the children held at Fort Sill, will never be deported and will remain in the United States. · At least 212 illegal immigrant children have already been placed with sponsors in Oklahoma where they are eligible under federal law to attend public school and receive emergency health services. · The federal government does not plan to close the Fort Sill facility, contrary to the administration’s initial promises. Fallin wrote, “Provided these reports are true – and I have no reason to believe they are not – your administration appears to be pursuing a course that actively shifts the costs of Washington’s failed immigration policies onto our states. You are intentionally placing a greater burden on our already over-burdened education and health care systems. Even more disturbing, the federal government appears to have gone to great lengths to distract and confuse the public from discerning the true nature of these policies.” Poteau, OKNo author availableGov.
