Migrant Children In Pennsylvania Cause For Public Safety Concern

07.30.14 | Bob Price

Nearly two dozen state legislators on Tuesday expressed concerns to Pennsylvania Congressional members about public safety over the hundreds of unaccompanied refugee children from Central America who have been given shelter - or are about to be - across the state. In that letter, state lawmakers urged members of Congress from Pennsylvania to take action to protect public safety from any potential dangers stemming from the approximately 500 unaccompanied minors who have been given temporary shelter in Pennsylvania. The lawmakers wrote that they are concerned that some of the children could be affiliated with criminal gangs.
