LITTLE ROCK — The federal government says well more than 100 unaccompanied children in Arkansas have been placed with sponsors so far this year after they crossed the border into the United States.

The Office of Refugee Resettlement released a state-by-state breakdown Thursday of the numbers of unaccompanied minors in each state that were placed with parents, relatives or family friends after crossing the border. The office said 166 unaccompanied children were placed with a sponsor in the state between Jan. 1 and July 7.

The office said all sponsors undergo background checks and the children are vaccinated and medically cleared before being placed with a sponsor.

Does the USA have any immigration laws, policies, and/or procedures? If so, why are they not enforced along the southwest border?

Putting illegal immigrants on military bases is grounds for impeachment. US civilians are not even allowed on military bases yet we don't know who these people are that are coming over the boarders illegally and we are allowing them to be housed on our bases????? They could be terrorists! Taking away benefits from our military then spending money on housing these illegals then rubbing it in the faces of our military by housing them at their own base!?! WTF

What rocks did you guys crawl out from under not to have heard that the law signed by President Bush REQUIRES that unaccompanied minors be placed until they can have a hearing before an immigration judge?

Incidentally, it is not a crime for a minor to enter the USA undocumented, and it is not a crime for anyone to simply be here in that status.

Pearls before swine, HSL.

Baggers hate facts. They tend to interfere with their agenda.

Rightwing media fails to distinguish the difference on this issue between "illegal" and "refugees". When the republicans were in-charge for 8 years, not only did George sign a bill that gives them due process, George also signed executive orders to bring them in. Did anybody hear any rightwing outrage then? nah

Reason, George Bush was an idiot just like Obama. I wish Obammer had not aspired to be the worst POTUS we have ever seen.
