Nola.com reports the United States is struggling with a crisis involving unaccompanied immigrant children arriving at the United States’ southern border, under the assumption that the U.S. Government will allow them to stay in the country. More than 52,000 children — mostly from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras — have arrived in southern Texas.

And more than 1,000 of those children are now staying in Louisiana while they await their deportation hearings. Governir Bobby Jindal has asked President Barack Obama for more information about the children housed in our state

Edmonson said he will be talking to the Texas officials about the children. “We have 1,100 kids in Louisiana. I am going to ask if they are getting any information about those children because we aren’t getting any,” said Edmonson.
