Several New Jersey organizations are assisting about 1,500 unaccompanied children who have been picked up crossing the border illegally in recent months, but Gov. Chris Christie is angry he was not notified in advance.
At a campaign appearance Friday in Chicago with Republican Illinois gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner, Christie accused President Barack Obama’s administration of hiding the information from governors as to how many children were being placed in their states.
The Department of Health and Human Services announced Thursday that 1,504 unaccompanied children have been placed in New Jersey from Jan. 1 through July 7.
