Grassley Co-Sponsors Bill to Warn Gov.’s of Illegal Immigrants Entering State

DES MOINES, Iowa – Senator Charles Grassley says 139 children who illegally crossed into the U.S. have been relocated to Iowa. Governor Branstad says he wasn’t told the kids would be coming and don’t know if more could be on the way.

Sen. Chuck Grassley co-sponsored legislation that requires the Department of Health and Human Services to give 48-hours notice to governors before children are placed in their states.

“The federal government should notify the governor of these happenings because it`s going to be a cost to the treasury, there could be health problems involved,” says Grassley. “The governor is entitled to know who is coming and where they are going.”

Democratic gubernatorial candidate, Senator Jack Hatch, says the state should be more compassionate and should fast track the children to refugee status.

“They are protected by federal law passed in 2008 by President Bush that unaccompanied children from Central America are available for coming up and asking for refugee status because of the violence and human trafficking they have been exposed too.”

The Department of Health and Human Services has not told state leaders where the children are staying, who they are staying with or if they are even still in the state.

    Chuckles Grassley has really slowed down over the years. Someone needs to tell Chuckles he’s a day late and a dollar short when it comes to warning anyone about illegals coming in to this state. Its only been going on now for about 20+ years. Thanks Chucky but your little BS Bill means nothing to anyone with a brain.

      In fact now that I think about it illegals have been coming in to Iowa about as long as Chuck Grassley has been in office.

      I can’t believe I am typing this, but I agree with you. Both parties have ‘closed their eyes’ to the border. Now the chickens are coming home to roost. Thats why its imperative to seal the border tight. Even if it means putting the military down there. Texas authorities just announced today that they apprehended three Ukranians. Not good. This is a national security issue of mammoth proportions, As for the illegals that ahve flooded us recently, we need to humanly take care of them (food/medicine) and send them home.

        Not good at all, Scary stuff. Makes one wonder who all is here the boarder has not apprehended all these years.

      @NOMORETB….. Since a large number of them are in their teens and twenties and have M13 gang member tats it is entirely possible that they will kill grandma.

      • Holla

        1 in 5 have a criminal record…They are increasing the number of gang members in our country…But since the politically correct scream racism anytime you mention this safety issue as they aren’t smart enough to argue facts/logic. Get ready to defend yourselves!

      The Democrats in office are gaining common sense by the day. Heard on IPR today even workers in these countries agree the law Bush signed in 2008 needs to be changed. These countries are abusing what this law was designed for. CNN said a few weeks ago many of the illegals where shocked to find out they were being detained and not allowed to freely travel where they wanted to. Well, this has been the unwritten way for over 20 years.

    Because democrats arent corrupt and do dastardly things as well. People who believe that one party is better than the other are nuts. Both sides are ruining this country.

      And folks like you have swallowed the kool-aid the teabuggers have served you. The mantra “Hate Government”, “Government Bad”, “Government can’t do anything right”. They’ve beat everyone over the heads with it. I call it TREASON. Just exactly what government would you people like to emulate? The United States of America isn’t a piece of land, it is our GOVERNMENT! So all you patriotic cretins hate your government, huh???
      AND IT IS NOT BOTH PARTIES!!!! ONLY the Republibag Party has this disdain for our government. If they hate it so much, why are they there? Who is it that is continually keeping the necessary funds from the VA? Do you know that doctors and nurses at the VA work for about 2/3 the wage of private facilities. THAT is the problem with the VA, staffing. How are you going to get the best and brightest, (or anyone that isn’t dedicated to the VETS), to accept wages 1/3 lower? The bill that is to fund more docs and nurses, etc. at the VA only stopped being filibustered by the Republibags when the embarrassment would be to great. Unfortunately the TeaBuggers in the House won’t let it out of committee, so it is going nowhere. I could give you hundreds of examples, but if you’re to lazy to find out the truth, you just keep believing the Republibag Party that our government is horrible. They should be charged with sedition by knowingly doing harm to the greatest government on earth.

    And where is your evidence of this Delbert? WND??? FauxNews? They’ll tell you everything you want to hear, but none of it needs to be truthful. FauxNews was sued in 2002 for lying and manipulating facts. They were found GUILTY and a judgement set against them for $500,000, but the case was thrown out on appeal. Reason? FauxNews argued they had a Constitutional Right to lie and manipulate facts. The appeals court agreed. That was the day that only complete mental midgets kept believing anything on FauxNews. They told everyone that they will lie and manipulate you, but you fools still believe that they are actual telling the truth!

        Where is your evidence of “A LARGE NUMBER”? I’ve seen these articles on all the networks. Only the TeaBugger networks are claiming any numbers that are large; the other networks, and credible articles specifically state the vast majority are younger than 14-15. And yes, they qualify as CHILDREN.
        AS far as gangs… history dictates the same claims were used about the Italians, Irish, etc. Guess what? they were right, they did have “gangs”. They all have gangs Delbert. It’s called poverty and trying to survive. The vast majority conformed and became good citizens; as will these CHILDREN.
        The problem all you fidiots have is that your protestations and cries are just the same old record with insert ethnicity “HERE”. You can only trick those that are ignorant of history, unfortunately it’s a good chunk of the Republibag Party. They’re still arguing to go back to the days when we rode dinosaurs. Love it when derp-de-derps that don’t believe in science say others are wearing a “tin-hat”!

        Reicht Wing Patriot: Betcha thought the same in history class, “blah, blah, blah”. It’s called an education. Sorry you didn’t care enough, (or have the ability), to learn anything that wasn’t on a bathroom wall.

    • Peggy

      Why don’t you try tuning into CNN? CNN said a few weeks ago many of the illegals where shocked to find out they were being detained and not allowed to freely travel where they wanted to. Do understand since it has been like this for over 20 years. Our country has given special privileges to Mexico for decades while other countries are forced to try the lotto chance way .

        They are “shocked” because the coyotes are scamming them. They are selling them a bill of goods. They are being lied to. I also heard this on CNN. It’s not being propagated by anyone except the coyotes. And the only people treated “special” are Cubans, they are the only ones with the right to stay by law, as long as their feet hit the ground. Wonder how many of them have come here the “special” way??? But of course they are stroked by the hypocrites of the Republibag Party for their vote. If they started voting Democratic, they’d be the scourge of the nation and they’d repeal their “special” status inna second.
        FauxNews and WND… they’ll tell you everything you want to hear, but none of it needs to be truthful. FauxNews was sued in 2002 for lying and manipulating facts. They were found GUILTY, but the case was thrown out on appeal. Reason? FauxNews argued they had a Constitutional Right to lie and manipulate facts. The appeals court agreed.

      @NO MORE TB…. You really are stupid lol. I have been a lifelong Democrat that voted for Obama(big mistake). I will be voting Republican this fall and beyond. Sick of left wing policies that are just terrible! Sick of the invasion that is happening. I will not be answering anymore of your post. Not going to argue with an idiot, now go ride your bike in traffic or something!

  • Paul

    “Governors” is plural in the article. Headline is possessive ” Gov’s”. So much for grammar’s place in today’s journalism.

  • Stacey

    The proper term is undocumented immigrants! Jodi please do some research on proper terminology before posting a story.

  • Dan

    The left won’t ever think there is a problem with the border being open. Until they figure out that terrorists won’t come into this country wearing a sign saying they are terrorist’s. After spending 10 plus years in Afghanistan and Iraq etc. teaching our enemy’s how to fly our helicopters and run our tanks etc. and lets just let the border go. Just how many middle east etc. people do we need to let invade our country, before they have an army inside here in plain sight? Ask the Indians if they had to do it over, would they allow immigrants?
