Gov. asks Obama for Immigration Info.

Updated: Thursday, July 24 2014, 09:51 PM CDT
 DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Gov. Terry Branstad wants the federal government to notify state officials about any immigrant children placed in Iowa.
   A spokesman for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said this week that 122 children who entered the country illegally and alone were sent to Iowa in the first half of the year. Branstad learned of the placements from a news reporter.
   In a letter sent Thursday to President Barack Obama, Branstad asked that the state be alerted to future placements. He also said immigrant children are getting the wrong message due to "a lack of a secure border and sound immigration policy."
   More than 57,000 youths, mostly from Central America, have crossed into the U.S. illegally since October.
