Columbus Mayor: City Prepared To Discuss Immigration Crisis
Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman said he is willing to work with other cities to assist with the immigration crisis at the U.S. southern border.

“If our social services agencies were to take in these children coming over from the southern border, they would need the support to have the capacity to do that,” Williamson said.

An estimated 57,000 unaccompanied minors from Central America have crossed the border illegally since last fall.
