Madison (WI) might host undocumented children
Channel 3000 ^ | 7-15-2014

MADISON, Wis. - The city of Madison may be called on to shelter between 150 to 250 unaccompanied and undocumented children who’ve come into the country through the Mexican border.

Mayor Paul Soglin told News 3 the city is working with several community organizations to find a facility to shelter the children. The city is looking for a facility of at least 90,000 square feet, like unused grocery stores.

The federal Department of Health and Human Services is asking all cities with more than 200,000 people to consider hosting children. All expenses would be paid by the federal government.

Soglin said they've been searching for potential sites within the city for a week, but have not found one. He said they are concerned that they won't.

The children would stay in Madison no more than 90 days.

Soglin said agreeing to help find a facility to use as a shelter was an easy decision.

“It is the right thing to do. That’s the simplest, it is the most uncomplicated answer,” Soglin said. “They’re all kids and these kids are alone. They are undoubtedly scared, they’ve probably seen a great deal of despair and most likely death through their young lives, and we’re good people.”

Soglin said he would not expect protests like what's being seen elsewhere in the country. He said hosting the children is the right thing to do.

Rev. David Bergner, director of the Milwaukee chapter of Catholic Charities, said they’ve identified three potential sites to bring children to Wisconsin. Two locations are in Milwaukee and a third is in northeast Wisconsin.

They're being quite generous with OUR tax dollars. This is insane.

It is a calculated insanity - an act of madness directed at the American people.

It is designed to inoculate ordinary people to the increasingly outrageous acts of the federal government - to make ordinary people feel hopelessly unmanned.

“Rev. David Bergner, director of the Milwaukee chapter of Catholic Charities, said they’ve identified three potential sites to bring children to Wisconsin. Two locations are in Milwaukee and a third is in northeast Wisconsin.”

Catholic “Charities” forces taxpayers to pay for Medicaid for their charity cases. Who knows what else - food stamps, housing subsidies, welfare? Certainly they'll force taxpayers to pay for public school as well.

Hypocrisy - forcing taxpayers to foot the bill so you can appear charitable.

It might have the unintended consequence of starting CWII.

Liberals are pretty stupid when it comes to the unintended consequences of their impulse decisions.

You can say that again.
I’m already tired of hearing, “It’s for the children!” and,
“What kind of monster are you, if you don’t care for the children?!”
I’ve got my own to raise, as well as the children of our own welfare culture.
And now we’re being told that we’re going to have to pay to raise central America’s kids along with Mexico’s?

I agree with Popeye, when he finally sat down and tasted the stuff:
“It’s spinach, and to hell with that.”

Do you mean that their hospitals accept Medicaid? Please clarify.

Better hurry and contact Gov Walker. I can't believe that he doesn't know about this. Can you Wisconsin FReepers keep us up to date on what is happening...does the Gov know, and what's going to be done?

Any chance we can park these illegals in the center of the University of Wisconsin campus - maybe in tents there.

They can set up shop selling drugs, robbing, and raping people going to classes. Perhaps then they people in Madison will learn a bit more about the effects of liberalism, once they see it applied in their own backyard, rather than in communities they never visit anyway.

Every FReeper who lives in or near a city of this size needs to get on the phone today and find out who is handling this request and what their plans are.

Those who come from places unaware of
Mother Winter’s fury, might just be the ones to succumb to her tempting slumber.

May these illegal, unwanted invaders, sleep!

May Mother Winter come by October.

“Liberals are pretty stupid when it comes to the unintended consequences of their impulse decisions.”.........

“Common Sense” isn’t common anymore. Unfortunately, you don’t have to be demodummie or repub to be affected.

Soglin was a huge leftist radical back in the sixties in Madison. He got himself elected mayor. What he’s doing now is predictable.

I’m not too panicked. Soglin is back-pedaling all over the place this morning, saying there is no facility that meets the needs of the Feds. Hmmm...we have a number of large, vacant buildings just sitting around, May-jor! *SNORT*

The, ‘White Wine and Brie’ crowd in Madistan must’ve gotten wind of this...

We shall see.

He's been elected mayor SEVERAL times over the years. Check his history - he went to Cuba and dined with Castro. Instrumental in the Vietnam War protests. I used to have to work with him - he's also a bit of an equine gluteous maximus.

The catholic charities that take in people put them on Medicaid, of course on the Medicaid version of the state they are in, forcing that state’s taxpayers to foot the bill.

I don’t know what hospitals they use. Depends on their location.

Catholic charities run their own hospitals. So do Methodists, Jews, and various other groups. If a hospital did not accept Medicaid they undoubtedly would be criticized.

Some of these “children” are adult MS-13 gang members lying about their age and backgrounds. Mad Town liberals are so generous with our taxes, ie other peoples’ money.
