Central American Children Coming To Illinois

Tens of thousands of Central American children are crossing America’s southern border.

They have to go somewhere and right now they aren’t going back home.

Illinois Governor Pat Quinn says his state is prepared to help "in whatever way necessary'' to preserve the well-being of unaccompanied children.

At a bill-signing ceremony Friday at the University of Illinois Urbana campus, Quinn said the state will do what it can to help these children, but he wouldn’t specify what kind of help that may be.

The Health and Human Services Department says 305 unaccompanied children have been placed with sponsors as of July 7th this year.

Illinois U-S Senator Mark Kirk says 429 additional unaccompanied minors were being held at government shelters as of July 8th.
