Upton Says Migrant Stream Proves Immigration Policy Needs Attention

Thousands of young people have been streaming over the border from Mexico into the United States for months under the impression that they will be allowed to stay in the U.S. Congressman Fred Upton says it's become one of the topics he's contacted about the most.


Upton says that some House hearings are coming up soon to discuss possible health issues the Central American children could have. However, he notes, that's just a start. A Catholic college in Detroit is offering to take in some of the children, but with a caveat. Marygrove College president David Fike says they will accept migrants between the ages of 16 and 24, put them in the dorms, and give them food and an education but only if President Obama recognizes them as refugees.
