ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Gov. Martin O'Malley is meeting with Maryland faith leaders to discuss how to help unaccompanied immigrant children who have been coming across the border from Central America.

O'Malley held a meeting on Monday in Annapolis with dozens of representatives from religious groups.

Nina Smith, an O'Malley spokeswoman, says they are discussing possible partnerships the state could form with them to help the children.

Smith also says the state wants to work constructively with federal officials to safely and securely house the children until they can be reunited with their families.
