N. TX officials visit border facilities in McAllen

A team of North Texans recently returned from a visit to border facilities in McAllen, TX.

They now have a more clear vision of the task ahead as they work to offer shelter to 2,000 undocumented children at two facilities in Dallas County. Judge Clay Jenkins, state Senator Royce and Pastor Freddy Haynes from Friendship West Baptist Church in Dallas toured the detention facilities on Wednesday to see firsthand what’s going on there.

Jenkins said officials are moving fairly swiftly in the process with the goal to bring the kids to North Texas in the next few weeks. He also said no local taxpayer money would be used to house the children.

He may name the two Dallas County facilities as soon as Thursday. The Department of Health and Human Services still has to approve the facilities.

If all goes well, the children could begin to arrive by the end of the month.

U.S. Congressman and longtime physician Michael Burgess returned Tuesday night from visiting a federal holding facility on the border in McAllen, TX.

Burgess says he considers the children's arrival in Dallas County a potential public health threat, raising concerns of infectious disease like tuberculosis. But his main concern is the long term, and he worries it won't stop with two Dallas County shelters.

“I don't mean to sound insensitive here, but if our goal is to depopulate Honduras of poor people and bring them here, there's a better way to do it,” said Burgess. “Send a Carnival cruise line down there to pick them up. Don’t send them across Central Mexico to ride on the top of a freight train as 8-year-olds and arrive on the shore of the Rio Grande River. That's dangerous; that's heartless.”

It is time for civil resistance. Don’t cooperate, block the transportation of these invaders; publicize the disease potential, and the border states need to put their national guard troops on the border to protect both from the illegals and the Feds.

Any of these children that are genuinely “unaccompanied” will be bought by homosexuals to “play family”; this is very creepy that America is blatantly luring these foreigners to replace the lost generation of Americans.

What is being described along the border here has been happening in NJ for years; the original “anchor babies” are nearing high school age.

If these children are not going to be sent back, how does the federal government propose to raise them to adulthood without too many of them turning into gang members or prostitutes?

Church’s appear to be leading the acceptance efforts. They will not resist

The Corporate Church of America comes though once more. I think I once heard "Depart from Me as I never knew you" or something like that.
