Gov. Haley: Immigration situation 'just wrong'


COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Gov. Nikki Haley says it's wrong for the federal government to expect states to accept children caught at the U.S. border while providing no information on them.

Haley said during a panel discussion of Republican governors at the Aspen Institute that they do care about the undocumented children, but states already have their own children to take care of.

Last week, Haley said the U.S. Department of Homeland Security assured her there are no mass shelters for the children in South Carolina. Her spokesman said Friday she intends to keep it that way.

Federal data released Thursday showed 350 children have been released to sponsors in South Carolina since Jan. 1, accounting for 1 percent of children nationwide who were released to someone whose information was found on them.
