Posted on 06/26/2014 9:18:25 AM PDT by rktman
California suburbanites are engaged in a fight with the federal government over its attempt to turn a residential building into a detention center for illegal-immigrant children.
The Department of Health and Human Services submitted an application to the city of Escondidos Planning Commission to use a 35,200 square-foot facility to house almost 100 children. On Tuesday night in this suburb of San Diego, the city commission held a hearing to review the request and unanimously voted to oppose the application. Several hundred people filled the chamber hall to make their voices heard, and people at the meeting say the overwhelming majority opposed the application. The standing-room-only crowd spilled over into an adjacent room and nearby hallways, and onto the grass outside.

The Escondido area received thousands of boat people during the fall of Vietnam. It has already happened in their “back yard” once.
Embrace the suck, California. Put them in Boulder, Co. next.
I say send them to Chicago, New York, San Francisco,
Atlanta, LA, New Orleans, Portland, Seattle, St Louis,
Detroit, and other liberal bastions.
Has anyone notified the black community that their replacements are ready?
Every one of those cities has at least some conservatives in them. I say send the illegals the h*** HOME.
Flood the Congress w/ Phone calls--"Send them back---we will not subsidize Democrat vote-buying schemes. No tax dollars for illegals."

Charley Rangel’s district is becoming latino. Another few busloads should wrap it up for Rangel.
Illegals Central America trek.
Short of militarizing the border and putting troops into Mexico to prevent border crossings..our borders are meaningless. Any women with kids, or kids alone, that make it across get to stay indefinitely. Mexican men get deported and can try again, but women and children get a pass. Now all of Latin America knows that and they will be coming in hordes.
At least then their animal control department saved some money.
Exactly. They want them here for their sole purpose, let them take care of them in Washington DC.
okay but not the inner cities... and let's include other blue states and liberal bastions... see how they like it... in the suburbs, the gated communities, resorts: Georgetown, The Hamptons, Matha's Vineyard, Hyannis Port, Beverly Hills, Malibu, Vail, Aspen... you see?
That’s why I included “other liberal bastions”!
However, the fact that the entire country will be destroyed if we let people in during a period of high unemployment is lost on them otherwise.
“Every one of those cities has at least some conservatives in them”.
California has a number of conservatives, too. Where are you when
some Cali hating FReepers come after all of California? I hope you
do remind them that there are some conservatives here like us.
I don’t think liberals will ever get the message if all we do is send
the fence hoppers “HOME”.
Outside of two urban corridors - Marin to San Jose, San Fernando to Santa Ana - Californians are no more liberal than the rest of the country.
I have stood up to the California bashers here many times here, reminding them that the founder of this site is from California.
I hate American liberals, too, but I don’t think any American should have to put up with illegals being put in their neighborhoods. Now the liberals’ kids will be beaten up in their schools. It’s not their fault their parents are liberals.
Innocent people in those cities will be attacked by illegal gang members or hit by unlicensed, uninsured illegal drivers. Innocent people in those cities will lose their local emergency rooms. There’ll be diseases. And on and on.
I want illegals GONE more than I want to “send some message” to liberals.
Unfortunately no. In our neighborhood chickens and pigs were backyard animals for awhile.
