Connecticut officials say they're working with federal authorities to match some of the thousands of immigrant Central American children with family members living in the state.

   Mark Ojakian, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy's chief of staff, said the administration is also working with the federal government to help families who want to house some of the children temporarily.

   Ojakian said the administration believes it's best to place any child with their family first and avoid congregate or institutional settings wherever possible.
