Gov. Mike Pence (R-IN) said that he learned of the federal government sending “several hundred” unaccompanied minors “in the newspaper” on Tuesday’s “Laura Ingraham Show.”
“I was taken aback when we learned from press reports that we had several hundred unaccompanied minors who had been brought to the state of Indiana without any notification to our administration … so for me to read in the newspaper that these children had been brought to our state without any notification was totally unacceptable,” Pence reported.
He added that “the lines of communication [between the federal government and the states have not improved in the least.”
Pence further declared that “we need to restore them [unaccompanied minors] into their countries and return them to their families as soon as possible.”
