Posted on 07/16/2014 3:46:43 PM PDT by yoe
WESLACO - BCFS Health and Human Services on Wednesday withdrew a proposal to turn a Weslaco hotel into a facility for young illegal immigrants.
A media release from the group of non-profit agencies cited "negative backlash caused by information misreported to the public" as the reason for walking away from the project.
BCFS last week submitted a request for a conditional use permit to relocate its facility from Harlingen to Weslaco. The agency had agreed to use $3.8 million in non-government funds to buy the Palm Aire Hotel and Suites on FM 1015.
Health and Human Services was so rich.
BCFS sought to turn the hotel into a 600-bed facility, but the project didn't reached the point of submitting the proposal to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, according to the media release.

Baptist Child and Family Services, I think...or something like that.
People jumping all over this idea of putting illegals up in a resort hotel has been all over my Facebook and Twitter ever since word leaked out.
People are rightfully angry and I do not believe that this was “negative backlash caused by information misreported to the public”. I think people are fed up with this garbage and just won’t continue to lie down and take it.
If information was misreported to the public, then why don’t they give us the true story??? Why don’t they tell us how wonderful this would have been, except for all of the misreporting that was done????
So they wanted to spend $3.8 million on the facility and charge the taxpayers $50 million to keep the illegals?
Isn't it illegal for a Christian group to receive govt. funding?
You know, that separation of church and state thing..............

On another thread the salaries of the top folks at BCFS were listed, it’s a charity scam like United Way etc...
OOPS, see #7!
I saw that update on the original thread. Thanks for the good news ping! I just wonder what location they’ll come up with next.
Like another poster mentioned...why don’t they use their resources to get their butts down to Central America and set up camps down there? (We know the answer to that one.)
Good grief!! Excellent info on this BCFS scam group!! Good job, research99!
Does anyone have any idea where Weslaco is?
Why can’t they tell us?
Weslaco, TX is between McAllen and Brownsville, TX.
So basically Democrats are granting ungodly sums of our money to a few idiots who act as a cutout for smuggling illegal invaders. Typical Democrat system.
Did they instead decide to turn the Alamo into the newest illegal alien resort?
Nice work on the research. Looks like a bunch of Chamber of Commerce, crony capitalist fat cats driving that gravy train under the safety umbrella of a religious organization. No surprise, really.
Not just that, they also use their huge federal grants to hire a bunch of part-timers throuhg staffing firm (whose own employees call out them out for bullcrap workplace policies) to clean up after the migrant children (while the executives all profit in a big way).
Check out the reviews of Roth Staffing Companies
Isn’t that handy? Hire part time, low pay hourly wage people with no benefits to do their dirty work. The same people who claim that illegals will do the work that Americans simply won’t do. I despise these slugs.
Mystery Babylon got yanked by the tail!
Only reason it’s a no go , It hit The News
Criminal scam artists pervade our society. Have all people with integrity left this society? Is being a sociopath now an “in” thing?
What makes you think BCFS is a Christian group?
Planned Parenthood has nothing to do with planning or parenthood, for instance.
This happy gang of exploiting criminals have had a great scam going for a number of years, now, from all appearances. Mind you, they have been playing with the bottomless public purse, plus it sounds like they set their own salaries and bonuses..
THAT is the reason the great plan was aborted before the $50 million gravy train could actually be implemented.
BCFS President Kevin Dinnin met with Obama on his most recent Texas visit at Lackland Air Base (where contractors were told to keep their mouths shut about what they saw), so this gang is tied directly the White House.
Is this group really associated with Southern Baptists, another Baptist group or just using that name? I am very suspicious.
You’ve got a point there.
You’ve got a point there.
And keep in mind----there's always someone blathering about being "for their fellow-man" and willing to make a buck on it.
You can bet a lot of money is changing hands sub rosa.
ITEM When Harry Reid laughably said "the border is secure," Reid was prolly getting his palm greased under the table bigtime.
ITEM When sap-happy Texas Judge Clay Jenkins on TV smirked about "the faith community" coming to the invaders' rescue (despite us nay-sayers)....we now know what he meant.
ITEM Shockingly suspect is that the BCFS planned to buy the property for $3.8 million but the Boobamba govt was forking over $50 million tax dollars (that we know of).
Below, please find all the info needed to get to the bottom of this scam.
It might appear to be operating legitimately on the surface but with millions of untraceable tax dollars being handed out---problems could start surfacing later---maybe as part of a long-orchestrated plot w/ foreign governments.
Could also be an attempt to throw tax dollars at a plummeting real estate market.
Problems might include:
- forged deeds and sales of property;
- taking millions of tax dollars for land deals without fulfilling the intended purpose;
- use of fake title company to close land deals;
- taking tax dollars for sub rose purposes--other than those intended.
ITEM Are any of our tax dollars going to the Central American countries sending hordes of illegals over the border? NOTE: The prospects of wire-transfer remittances reportedly generated Central American villages being emptied out onto speeding trains.
TALKING POINTS---THE FOREIGN AID MODUS OPERANDI ---Former Guatemala Prez used US banks to launder millions (swindler was elected to "redistribute" the nation's wealth) An ex-president of Guatemala faced charges in NY that he used US banks to launder millions looted from his impoverished nation. Alfonso Portillo took office in 2000 pledging to redistribute Guatemalas wealth.
Portillo, 61, allegedly ran scams to drain the impoverished country's coffers. The feds say Portillo embezzled about $2.5M provided by the Taiwanese embassy....$1.5 million was earmarked for Libraries for Peace....books for school kids.
Portillo personally endorsed three, $500,000 checks issued against an account at the Intl Bank of China in Manhattan, then deposited the cash in the Miami bank account of a Guatemalan bank controlled by a close associate and political supporter .....the money was funneled to bank accounts in Paris in the names of Portillos ex-wife and daughter.
Portillo swindled nearly $4M defense funds ...and plundered the national bank run by his alleged co-conspirator through overdrafts financed by public reserves -- stolen money paid for expensive watches and cars, for himself and his associates, according to the indictment. (Source: NY POST news report 5/28/13.)
Time to mobilize the Bank Secrecy Act----to follow the paper trail of tax dollars, foreign aid and US govt agency foreign disbursements, and determine how govt monies changes hands.
Taxpayers demand to know the scope and dimension of government insiders ability to collude in sub rosa deals and who might be personally profiting from the realty deal.
<><> L/E needs to examine Central American bank accounts.
<><> Joint bank accounts might be used to facilitate the transfer govt funds from one account to another, and/or wo=ire-transferred offshore;
<><> To cover their tracks, fake govt invoices might be created to show that govt money deposited into accounts was being used for legitimate govt purposes.
<><> Financial schemes scheme might be advanced by issuing phony statements of payments from financial sources that actually covered the transfer of govt funds for insiders' personal use and/or for redistribution schemes.
NOTE WELL Under the Bank Secrecy Act, banks are required to establish, implement and maintain programs designed to detect and report suspicious activity indicative of money laundering and other financial crimes. The Bank Secrecy Act was enacted to protect the public from harm by identifying and detecting money laundering from criminal enterprises, terrorism, tax evasion or other unlawful activities, the special agent in charge for Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation, explained.
Shady banking transactions could be prosecuted under the (1) Bank Secrecy ACT, (2) RICO, and, (3) the Hobbs Act.
<><> L/E should get ahold of: (1) copies of BCFS checks, (2) wire transfers, (3) account statements, (4) invoices, (5) bills, (6) delivery tickets, (7) correspondence including snail mail, e-mail, mobile devices, cell phones, (8) contracts, (9) loan agreements, (10) other account books or official records.
L/E should also explore (a) monies BCFS paid to brokers, sub- brokers, (b) family members, (c) mortgage brokers, (d) financial managers, and, (e) real estate agents, brokers, and developers.
<><> L/E should scrutinize BCFS bank accounts for suspicious activites: (A) large deposits, (B) funds transferred from one account into another, (C) frequent requests for withdrawals.
<><> BCFS bank records might also show diversions to secret LLC accounts, to money launder and to operate personal ventures---or to finance campaign activities (and/or other redistribution schemes favored by the WH).
Tax fraud may also be a factor; facilitated by withdrawals, gift cards purchases, credit card purchases and intra-bank transfers from DHS accounts into personal accounts, campaign accounts, or into redistribution schemes.
<><> A huge tipoff is whether BCFS bank withdrawals support and luxurious lifestyle including payments for real estate, investment and stock holdings, jewelry, luxury vehicles, lengthy resort stays....... and gifts from luxury outlets for wives and mistresses (earmarked and campaign activities, or other redistribution schemes).
Taxpayers demand the Bank Secrecy Act be used to prosecute govt fraud, pronto.

COMMON FRAUD PRACTICES:
Are the principles using credit cards? Reversing credit card write-offs is a common scam, initially writing off credit debt then cooking the books by reversing the write-off for annual reports. The debt could also be carried on the books as a fraudulent unbilled disbursement "receivable."
Backdating checks to hide the date on which checks were received---in order to minimize the risk that auditors would discover fraudulent accounting practices.
Reclassifying expenses on financial statements to seemingly reduce expenses. This change in treatment is usually not disclosed to auditors or on official financial statements.
WAS A TAX_EXEMPT BOND OFFERING PART OF THE FINANCIAL MIX? -- The SEC would be interested in possible Fraudulent Methods WRT misleading bond offerings, defrauding investors by misleading them about use of tax-exempt monies; utilizing falsified marketing materials to mislead.
Is there a Master Plan?
That might describe certain fraudulent accounting adjustments pursued as part of a sub rosa scheme; engaging in fraudulent conduct to mislead WRT tax revenue, expenses, or payments; perhaps structuring transactions as "loan repayments" to falsify revenue.
Is there leveraging of tax dollars to secure bank loans that benefit principles? Perhaps classifying loan repayments as "revenue" on official documents?
All of these activities compel criminal penalties for the crimes of grand larceny, schemes to defraud, securities fraud and falsifying business records.
