ATLANTA, Ga. -

Georgia's governor has sent a letter to the president to show his disapproval of not communicating with his office over unaccompanied young migrants.  

In the first half of the year the Office of Refuge Resettlement sent 1,154 unaccompanied children to Georgia. 

Gov. Nathan Deal says he just learned of this news this week from federal officials.  Deal says it was "unconscionable" of the lack of communication.  In the letter he states that he was shocked of when he heard the news. 

Since October more than 57,000 minors have crossed the border to enter the United States.  The majority of the minors have come from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala.  Immigration has become an intense debate in Washington and across the nation.
