OK Governor Demands Obama Stop the Secrecy on Illegal Children

Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren” Gov. Mary Fallin (R-OK) demanded President Barack Obama be “forthright” with Oklahomans and end the secrecy about the undocumented children the administration has sent to her state.

The Republican governor said, “We just want straightforward answer for the governors of our States. We want to know what the president’s end game is and what’s he planning on doing? Get us the facts give us the  information.”

“We were told originally that we would have migrant children and youth who would stay in Oklahoma about 120 days until October 10, but we hear through back channels that it could be extended longer than that. We have asked where are the children from?” she continued. “We’re told it’s a privacy issue we can’t know. We have been asked where are the children going once they leave Oklahoma.” Fallin added “We know there has been about 212 teenagers have been released into Oklahoma but we don’t know where. We don’t know if they have been released to legal people or illegal people.” 

Fallin asked the president to give her some answers and said, “We are asking the president to be forthright. give us the information. We have a right to know as citizens of the state of Oklahoma.”
