Maine Governor Paul LePage this week was told by White House officials that eight unaccompanied children who crossed the nation's border illegally would be placed in Maine. LePage said President Barack Obama has failed to enforce border laws and that Maine can't be a state that "encourages illegal immigration." He said, we cannot become a state that encourages illegal immigration, because, "We simply cannot afford it."

Because of those statements, LePage again has hit the national media...this time on Comedy Central's 'Colbert Report with Stephen Colbert.
