Gov. Fallin: I Have 'Right to Know' What's Happening With Illegals

Gov. Mary Fallin said she owes it to Oklahoma citizens to know what was happening in her state with the housing of illegal immigrants.

 "I have the right to know. And, I need to be able to tell the citizens of our state what's going on," Fallin, a Republican, told Fox News' "America's Newsroom" on Wednesday.

 Yet, when she went to the military facility at Fort Sill, where over 1,000 children are now being held, Fallin said she was told to "be silent and have a quick tour and be out of there."

 She said she encountered "an outside organization that had been contracted by the federal government that had set up what they wanted me to see."

 Fallin said she had "a lot of questions that were left unanswered" following her visit. She said a primary concern was about the sponsors that children were being released to in the United States.

 "My question, as a mother, who are the sponsors? Is it a family member? Is it a relative? Is it someone that paid to have this child brought to the United States? Are they being trafficked here?" she asked.

 She also questioned how the children were "protected as they're coming from those different countries through Mexico and up to the United States." She said there were "lots of reports of sexual abuse," and girls as young as 10 years old who "may be pregnant now because of the abuse they received along the way."

 Another concern was the health of the children, and Fallin said she took her health secretary with her for her visit.

 "I was concerned about the health of the children. What are they bringing into Oklahoma, into our facilities, around our military installations, into our communities, and the workers that are there?" she said.

 Fallin, a former chairwoman of the National Governors Association, said she had an opportunity to have a "pretty blunt conversation" with Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell about the situation at the group's recent meeting. She said the governors discussed their concerns about the impact to their states' educational systems and the health of the children entering the local communities.

 The surge of thousands of illegal immigrants, many of them unaccompanied minors, had "shocked the nation, shocked, certainly, the governors," Fallin said, adding the problem for communities was particularly severe "at a time where we have our own problems in our states."

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams

From the article:
[[  Yet, when she went to the military facility at Fort Sill, where over 1,000 children are now being held, Fallin said she was told to "be silent and have a quick tour and be out of there."
She said she encountered "an outside organization that had been contracted by the federal government that had set up what they wanted me to see." ]]

Well, dear Madame Governor, why didn't you put your foot down right at that moment, and tell them the hell with their "requirements", you were going to see what you wanted and came to see?

Gonna be real interesting to see that "outside organization" manhandle a lady governor and put her out of a facility in her own state.

WHY DID YOU LET THEM GET AWAY WITH TREATING YOU LIKE THIS?

Folks, this is what's wrong with the Republican party, and why there is no chance of standing up to Obama through other than impeachment proceedings.

If the GOVERNOR of a state is so weak-willed to permit this kind of conduct, who is left?

Other than "we the people", of course!
