Indiana residents have accepted more than 200 of the unaccompanied Central American children who have recently shown up on the U.S. border — creating confusion among state officials and stoking passions on the immigration issue.
State Sen. Brent Steele, R-Bedford, criticized President Barack Obama’s immigration policies Thursday, and caused a mixup when he sent out an email to constituents claiming no “illegal aliens have been dumped in our state.”
Steele cited the office of Gov. Mike Pence as his source. Christy Denault, a spokeswoman for Pence, clarified that the federal government pledged to notify Indiana if it intends to set up a “detention center” here.
