This is from a story on KVOA News Chan4 in Tucson.....

The News 4 Tucson Investigators have reviewed financial disclosures that show a growth industry in the economy of sheltering unaccompanied immigrant children worth millions of dollars. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, which administers those contracts, has declined requests from the News 4 Tucson Investigators to explain how much it is spending of taxpayer money to pay for the children's' shelters.

Southwest Key, one of the few organizations in the country that can house unaccompanied immigrant kids show a non-profit that's been expanding across the country. In 2011, Southwest Key reported $62 million in revenue. By 2012, it reported $85 million in revenue. By 2013, Southwest Key's revenue was at $124 million.

"According to the group's IRS filing in 2012, Southwest Key had 64 programs nationwide and employed at least 1,000 employees. It's grown since then. Meanwhile, its president and CEO, Dr. Juan Sanchez, drew a salary of $264,000 in 2012."

Have these children been brought here to make up for all the abortions over the years. Just what is going on with our country. I consider the border situation is out of control and needs a military solution. The governors of Texas and Arizona are the only people I see who are showing any responsibility to American citizens.

When are we going to demand that all our tax dollars be accounted for on a website. We deserve to know where every penny of our tax dollars are going.

The national debt will have to be raised another few trillion dollars to even begin addressing this.

Your dang straight, and every American citizen, ought to have an interest in this subject. This will effect our children, and their children's future.

Charity should begin and end with helping American citizens who are in need before all others, our vets, our elderly, our homeless, and our shelters.

Can Americans as citizens, go to another Country take your pick, and do with what illegals do in ours. Would we be treated failry, think your know the answer. At least Texas and Arizona have the balls, yes I said it, to care about this issue.
Why should our hard earn dollars go to the cause of law breakers.

In 2 years this one company has doubled it's revenue.
And in this stagnant economy no less.
And this company deals with illegals.

And we were told the borders "were never more secure".
