US Agency Still Flying Migrant Families to Arizona

PHOENIX June 7, 2014 (AP)By BOB CHRISTIE Associated Press Arizona — angry about the federal government sending from Texas to Arizona immigrants who are in the country illegally — said Friday it will rush federal supplies to a holding center in the southern part of the state that is housing migrant children.Gov. Jan Brewer spokesman Andrew Wilder said conditions at the holding center are so dire that federal officials have asked the state to immediately ship the medical supplies to the center. In addition, Wilder said, the regional director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency was being dispatched to Arizona to help deal with the crisis.Wilder said reports from consulates that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security was stopping the program to fly migrant families to Arizona and then bus them to Phoenix wereincorrect. Instead, the program that has shipped unknown thousands of adult migrants and their children to Arizona since last month shows no sign of stopping, he said.              STORY
