The numbers of immigrant children crossing United States borders have increased by alarming levels over the past few years. And many of them are going to New Jersey.

Immigrant children landing with sponsors in New Jersey is among the highest in the country.

According to an Associated Press report in the Washington Times, Department of Health and Human Services’ Administration for Children and Families figures revealed that out of 30,340 children being placed across the U. S. between January 1 and July 7, 1,504 unaccompanied children came to New Jersey. Texas had the most placements at 4,280.

Governor Chris Christie said he would consider accepting the children based on each case. “We'll take every request that comes based on its merits and make those decisions," Christie said, according to CNN. He said he didn’t want to encourage border crossings but "we are an empathetic people in this country and we don't like seeing people suffer."
