Gov. Walker concerned about flood of illegal children, but not opposed to helping

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Governor Scott Walker says he is worried the unaccompanied children crossing the border with Mexico will eventually drain the country’s support system.

Walker says he isn’t entirely against the idea of Wisconsin providing some temporary shelter to the children coming to the U.S. from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador.

Officials in the City of Madison have offered two locations to house some of those young people who have crossed the border illegally. Milwaukee has also been asked to search for a location.

To this point, 50 children have been placed with Wisconsin families.

Walker says he is one of several governors who have signed a letter expressing concerns about safety for the children, border security and the growing strain on state resources.

The federal government says it is asking for temporary shelter until the children can be reunited with relatives or family friends – or, returned to their home countries.
