There are a lot of questions surrounding a plan that landed at Harrisburg's airport earlier this week.

WASHINGTON — Congressman Lou Barletta (PA-11), proposed 27 resolutions during a recent House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee meeting that would save taxpayers more than $900 million through the better use of federal office space.
WASHINGTON - The former Chairman of the 9/11 Commission today agreed with Congressman Lou Barletta, PA-11, that without a fully functional biometric system to track foreign visitors who overstay their visas, America's borders will never truly be secure.

WASHINGTON - Congressman Lou Barletta, PA-11, today sent a letter to the Secretaries of Health and Human Services and Homeland Security seeking answers to important questions surrounding the screening and location of unaccompanied minors who have streamed across the United States border with Mexico in recent weeks. Barletta asked the secretaries if housing sites in Pennsylvania are under consideration, and requested detailed information about health assessments and background checks on the illegal immigrants.

Among the potential sites for detention centers for these children is the former MinSec and CEC facility in the Altamont Building in downtown Hazleton, according to Barletta, R-11.
