MCALLEN, Texas--Teenagers caught illegally crossing the U.S.-Mexico border are being transported via plane to states around the nation. One such state is Massachusetts, where a foster care agency is currently seeking foster parents to take the minors in. Lutheran Social Services, located in Worcester, Massachusetts, is "the only program in the New England states that assists refugee and migrating youth exclusively." The organization seeks out individuals, couples, and families willing to foster illegal immigrant minors from Latin America. A spokeswoman from Lutheran told Breitbart Texas that foster parents receive financial assistance from the government at a "daily rate." She said that the older the child, the higher the daily payment to foster parents. "Most of our children are teenagers," she said. "They have crossed the border, so they're older. For youths who are 13 and older, [the payment to foster parents is] $24.79 per day." $24.97 per day adds up to about $750 per month, but foster parents who take in more than one minor can collect thousands of dollars each month. In addition to standard payments, foster parents additionally receive a "clothing allowance" for the minors every three months.

I hope they sleep with one eye open.
It’s against the law to transport or aid illegals, but Obama’s government doesn’t have to obey the law.
You couldn’t pay me enough to bring teen-age gang members from these god-forsaken countries into my home. Talk about “blood money”....
I wasn’t aware that the Feds had an income they earned to pay anyone anything.
I can’t wait until those “minors”, raised near the equator, are told to shovel snow this winter.
.... It never ceases to amaze me at all of the creative and amazing ways that this administration is finding to plunder what is left in the coffers of America.
How much does the Lutheran Church get to keep for “administration” purposes?
The citizens are the only ones taking bribes. The “Baptist” organization in Texas pays it’s officers high six figure incomes.
Don’t take any federal money.
No. It’s the US taxpayers who are paying for it.
Aw...they don't go out in the snow. They all sit in one room huddled around their old CRT television for warmth. Fifty of them at one time in one apartment.
When I hear things like this I understand why these types always preach about 'not judging others'... especially don't judge narcissistic corrupt members of a religious organization.
I put “Baptists” in quotes because I’m not sure exactly which organization they’re affiliated with. But it is Baptist. All Baptists should condemn them. But like you said, let’s don’t judge.
