Daily Talker: Should Massachusetts House Children Crossing Border Illegally?

Governor Deval Patrick says he is considering a request from the White House about whether Massachusetts can shelter some of the unaccompanied children crossing the nation’s southern border illegally.

“We need to understand the scope of what it is that we are being asked to do, but I can tell you personally that I don’t think as a commonwealth that we can turn away and turn our backs to children who are coming from desperate situations,” Patrick told reporters.
