**UPDATED 7/17/2014 (Lincoln, Neb.) Today, Gov. Dave Heineman and members of Nebraska’s Congressional delegation sent a letter to Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Sylvia Burwell requesting specific information about the illegal unaccompanied immigrant children that have reportedly been placed in Nebraska. http://www.governor.nebraska.gov/news/2014/07/14_hhs_letter.html
**UPDATED 7/17/2014 Senator Johanns e-Update – July 15, 2014 Since October 2013, at least 57,000 unaccompanied alien children have entered the United States. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) places these children, who are under the age of 18 and entered our country without a guardian, in the custody of a relative, sponsor or a shelter while they await immigration proceedings. Approximately 200 of these minors have been placed in Nebraska.
States have a right to know the federal government is taking actions that impact their communities. That’s why I sent a letter – along with Gov. Heineman and the Nebraska delegation – to HHS Secretary Sylvia Burwell requesting that she provide our state officials with the relevant information about the children that have already been placed in Nebraska.
More broadly, I’ve introduced legislation requiring the federal
government to notify state officials before any unaccompanied children are placed in their states. I’m also continuing to work toward a long-term solution that will allow these children to be sent back to their homes as safely and quickly as possible. But, in the meantime, I think it’s only fair for states to be informed of federal actions.
