BOSTON (CBS) – Governor Patrick confirmed today that President Obama’s administration has asked Massachusetts to shelter some of the unaccompanied children that have illegally crossed the border into this country. Patrick went on to say that the United States is facing a “humanitarian crisis,” and that Massachusetts does not want to “turn our backs to children who are coming from desperate situations.” While the number of children Massachusetts may accept has not been specified, many are worried about further draining resources to deal with this issue.
