Gov. Wolf and Sen. Casey call for details about immigrant kids

Wolf and Casey, both Democrats, put those and other questions into a letter sent Tuesday morning to U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary.

The governor and U.S. senator say they oppose the practice of detaining families of asylum-seekers and separating children from their parents. The state, they say, is legally required to inspect facilities that house children and they want to ensure that immigrant children detained in Pennsylvania without their families are receiving the care required under state law.
