In a letter to President Obama, Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant said he would not allow the government to send immigrant children to sponsors within his state without consultation.

“To the extent permitted by law, I intend to prohibit the federal government or its agents from housing large numbers of new illegal immigrants in the state of Mississippi,” Bryant wrote, according to the Associated Press.

“Illegal immigration imposes real and substantial costs on the states, and it is unfair to expect the states to bear the costs of a problem created by the federal government’s failure to enforce the law.”
