Malloy announces preparedness plan for immigrants in country illegally
Gov. Dannel Malloy announced Wednesday that state agencies have come up with a "tool kit" for people living in Connecticut illegally.
The Family Preparedness Plan advises immigrants in the country illegally to get a guardian and lawyer, should someone's parents be deported as part of President Donald Trump's proposed immigration plan.
Malloy addressed the media Wednesday at the Hartford Public Library and stressed that as many as 22,000 children in the state could be forced into foster care. He said that as wards of the state, they could cost Connecticut $630 million.
The governor said that he will not be bullied by Washington on immigration laws in the state.
