BOSTON (State House News Service) – With Gov. Deval Patrick ready to accept unaccompanied children who have crossed the southern border into the United States, the Bourne Board of Selectmen is scheduled to meet Tuesday night to discuss the issue. Patrick last Friday recommended Camp Edwards in Bourne as a potential destination for the children, as well as Westover Air Reserve Base in Chicopee.

While his position on the issue was not available, Republican candidate for attorney general John Miller circulated a media advisory on Tuesday saying he plans to attend the 7 p.m. meeting at the Bourne Veterans Memorial Community Center, 239 Main Street, Buzzards Bay.
