Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett (R) gave an interview to KDKA NewsRadio in Pittsburgh on Friday and reignited the suggestion that immigrant children crossing the Mexican border into the U.S. carry diseases with them.
"We also are concerned about their health and, and what they may not cause in health issues in the state of Pennsylvania. From my standpoint where they're coming in, there are certainly enough military bases in Texas and Arizona that the federal government could at least house them in there temporarily to make sure before they even send them to any state, that their health conditions are okay for that. That they've had all their immunizations and so forth because we have a strong concern on that," Corbett told interviewer John Shumway.
