DES MOINES, Iowa — Gov. Terry Branstad and Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds sent a letter to President Obama Thursday urging him to take action on the immigration crisis.
Branstad and Reynolds say they want the Iowa Department of Human Services to be notified when immigrant children arrive in Iowa.
They also called on the president to secure the border and improve immigration policies.
Branstad and Reynolds argue the current policies jeopardize the lives of unaccompanied alien children who are making the dangerous journey from Central America.
