Gordon: Wyoming Will Not House Illegal Immigrants

Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon has made it clear that any attempt by the federal government to move illegal immigrants to Wyoming will not be allowed.

“I want to state clearly and unequivocally that the State of Wyoming will not participate in relocation or housing efforts of illegal immigrants or unaccompanied minors, and I have made our position clear to Federal officials,” Gordon tweeted Friday.

The federal government is dealing with a surge of unaccompanied minors entering the U.S. from its border with Mexico. More than 22,000 migrant children are currently by the government in what the Associated Press has called “substandard facilities.”
