It's absolutely outrageous that taxpayer money was going to be used to house illegal alien kids in luxury when we have millions of suffering American citizens.

The kids that were going to be housed there are 12-17 years old. Are you aware that in that age group are kids who are in MS-13 and have admitted to the border patrol that they have killed several people? Since they are minors, there isn't anything that can be done about it. Many of them are going to be released into this country

It's real. This ABC affiliate even has video:

ABC is reporting that BCFS withdrew the plan today because of "negative backlash."

The contract with BCFS to run and manage the facility was for $50 million per year. For 600 illegals. That's over $80,000 per illegal per year. Absolutely outrageous.

This plan was withdrawn, but they're putting them somewhere. How many tens of thousands of dollars per year per illegal is that costing us?

They still can't get the help they need in my state. Often, they really do have to choose between groceries and medicine. There's an elderly man who lives in the same city that I do, and he is always out picking up cans, in all kinds of weather, to sell them to get money to try to buy his wife medicine she has to have.

".......Piferrer told the Valley Morning Star the Palm Aire Hotel and Suites facility would ‘(provide) medical and mental health care, on-site educational programs, recreational programs and case management."

Doesn't sound like these kids will be deported anytime soon !

On a related note...."Up to 600 unaccompanied immigrant children may soon be heading to Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington State."

Feds consider JBLM for immigrant children | KING5.com Seattle
Agreed and HOW!

I'm 1 of those US citizens who'll be giving up his own place to live with friends since I can no longer make ends meet. I'm holding on but; things are fixin' to get real bad soon.

Uh; please don't make it that nice for illegal aliens. A FEMA trailer's still better than in parts of LatAm or Haiti.

So wow, just now checking back in with this thread and see that I have been called a fool. Well I've been called worse I guess by the left so such is life BUT the saddest part of this whole thing is that Casper thinks that what I posted would be AOK, now we all know the left needs voters bad BUT I am here to tell you Casper, this stuff that the administration is doing does not sit well with most.

Those damn Baptists.

First they ban their members from having sex while standing up (they said it was too much like dancing).

And now this.



Personally, I think we should bus this group right to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave and let Michelle show them what a good diet will do for them.

No! Please don't do this! Obama's toadies and sycophants will just call CASA de Maryland and Project Hope and Harmony who will immediately send buses and put them all in the thousands of existing illegal alien flophouses in the VA and MD 'burbs.

We don't want or need anymore illegals. We are inundated here. In fact, I want them all to leave and go back to their own countries, where they belong. They have no business being here.
