The fight over what to do with thousands of kids flooding the U.S. border could be coming to the Quad Cities. Today, President Obama asked Congress for $3.7 billion to deal with this issue. He wants to build facilities for the illegal immigrants, strengthen border patrol and hire more judges and lawyers to speed up the deportation process.
Right now, the government is using three military bases for the kids. There's a dispute about just how long the facilities will be obligated to care for and house the children.
Davenport Mayor Bill Gluba is saying the Quad Cities shouldn't turn its back on these children. Tuesday night he called a special meeting with local organizations that might be willing to help find a local solution. They're calling it the "Caring Cities Campaign." Representatives from various human services and faith-based organizations put their heads together. They were brought together in hopes of reaching out to children thousands of miles away.
"You can't turn your back on kids, little children and tell them they must go back to Honduras and in many cases be killed. That's wrong," said Mayor Gluba.
He says people have called offering up their homes and that he's been in contact with the White House and Department of Health and Human Services about what the community can do.
Nora Dvorak has helped run a refugee program for the Davenport Diocese in the past. She again hopes to have a plan to put into action before the week's over.
"I prefer to call them unaccompanied children and not some of the hate words used by various people these are children first of all," said Dvorak.

Davenport mayor's proposal to help Central American immigrant kids draws some opposition - July 10, 2014 - Davenport Alderman Bill Edmond told Davenport television station KWQC that he opposes Mayor Bill Gluba's proposal and said that, "If need be, I will stand in front of the buses myself."
Show me one example of these “children” being killed when they return to their homeland, and please don’t use a gang member or affiliate as your example.
“He wants to build facilities for the illegal immigrants”
There it is. All his talk about deporting them is pure Obama.
Let us help them.... get home
Those folks could need some sand bag fillers on a temporary basis...
These poor, defenseless children should properly be termed “Obama’s weapons.” That’s exactly what they are, just pawns in a larger battle against Capitalism.
With a list of possible diseases and parasites as long as your arm? I don't think so.
Damned! Semmenesd’s again!
When will it end?
Is Davenport willing to take the costs cause I’m not seeing the Obama regime offering reimbursement.
First of all, how many chicken processing plants need more workers and have asked the politicians to get them some.
And second, how many perverts are going to allow a hot teen Latina to stay in their homes?
Third, just for that reason I would never allow a strange child in my home. Not that I’m a pervert. But they can sure accuse you of being one. When that happens, your life is ruined.
A humanitarian plight, guessed it! Illegal immigration humanitarian style. These deviates siad to themselves, how do we back door immigration reform? SEND IN THE CHILDREN. Just like a black president could never be impeached or questioned, BECAUSE HE’S BLACK
