The letter was also signed by Congressman Charles Boustany and Congressman Bill Cassidy.
“What’s happening at our southern border was ignited by President Obama’s directive and worsened by his ongoing amnesty rhetoric. Now that we face a new crisis of illegal immigration, the president is refusing to lead and is trying instead to push the problem onto Congress and the states. Louisiana should not allow itself to be a pawn in President Obama’s reckless political game.
“My letter calls on the Obama Administration to report if any Unaccompanied Alien Children have been transferred into Louisiana this year, and, if so, has the federal government notified any elected officials. It also stresses that no such transfers should take place without the direct approval of the Governor of Louisiana.
“Without any further delay, the president should be taking every action possible to secure our border and to expeditiously remove illegal crossers.”
