Monday on “Fox and Friends,” Gov. Dave Heineman (R-NE) said Sen. Mike Johanns (R-NE) had discovered and informed him someone in the federal government has secretly shipped 200 illegal immigrants into their state.
Heineman said, “No one has been notified — notified us of that, So I’ve been on the telephone the last couple of days. The Department of Homeland Security referred me to the secretary of Health and Human Services.”
“We want to know the names of those individuals, who their sponsor is, is their sponsor legal, what communities did you send them to?” he added. “Why are they conducting a secret operation essentially, transporting them all over the country and now, we learn, to Nebraska and the federal government won’t tell us what’s going on.”
Heineman added “They know who they are, where they’re sending them and again, they won’t tell us whether they’re arriving by bus, by plane, by car. I have no idea and I have no idea what communities they’re going to in our state,” he concluded “And then again, who’s going to foot the bill? And in all likelihood, that means legal taxpayers are going to pay for services for illegal individuals.”
