Local taxpayers will do it every time if they don't like it and you have to respect it.
I don't know...doesn't look like what a punk-rock band is used to...
I, for one, am just relieved to know their are large government contracts being given out to assist in these matters.......
considering where these kids are coming from that motel is a royal palace and probably the nicest place they will ever rest their heads
The nonprofit that was going to do this has scrapped the idea, thanks to misinformation like the piece that started this thread.
Yeah! This is punk rock!
Call me heartless, but I couldn't care less about people illegally in this country's comfort level, recreation, religious, or educational needs. According to your article " At the converted hotel, BCFS said it would have provided shelter, education, recreational activities, medical and mental health care, case management and optional religious services."
$50 million per year from the federal govt to operate this facility? And the contract was to be with a Cheistian organization??? The anti-Christian obamalites would hate that.
It didn't say per year. I think they were referring to the total price of the contract, which would include the purchase price, retrofitting costs, and likely several years of operation for the facility.
The funny part is that the outrage likely will end up costing us more money, as we will likely deal with this in a less efficient (and probably less humane) manner than would occur with a facility like this on the border.
Surely that hotel doesn't cost much more than $3-4 million. How many years do they expect to run it as an illegal kidstel?
$3.8 Million according to the article. Then they have to add fencing, setup a medical facility, setup an immigration court, staff the entire facility (guards, medical professionals, lawyers, maintenance, etc.), maintain the facility, etc. Considering that there have always been illegal immigrant children, I would imagine that they would expect to run the facility for a while.
It would be cheaper to send them home to be with their families.
The irony of having to add a fence is not lost on me.
Haha indeed. Of course, this fence will be far cheaper, easier to construct, and far more effective than anything we could put on a border of that size.
