INDIANAPOLIS - The immigration crisis at the nation's southern border stirred controversy in Indiana Tuesday after Gov. Mike Pence wrote a strongly-worded letter to President Barack Obama questioning the whereabouts of 245 undocumented immigrant children.
In the letter, Pence asked that the children be deported. He also appeared to scold President Obama for not alerting him of the placements. Pence said Tuesday he did not learn about the placements until reading about it in news reports.
"We were not informed before the fact, which was frustrating. Word from the administration that we would be informed monthly is just unacceptable and we're requesting real-time information about any future placement," Pence said.
Meanwhile, the Obama administration is seeking friends and family members across the nation to take in thousands of unaccompanied children who have migrated to the U.S. illegally.
Gov. Pence said he has not gotten a response from the White House, but he hopes to get updates when he travels to Washington, D.C. this week.
