Dallas County to House 50K Migrant Kids in Warehouse Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Sun, Jul 6, 2014, 09:40 PM

Texas faces a swarm of migrant children flooding into Dallas and Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins, a Democrat, wants County taxpayers to house 50,000 illegal immigrant children inside the Parkland Memorial Hospital warehouse as a so-called "greater angelic compassion" ploy.

The Houston Chronicle reports that, "The Dallas County judge expects strong opposition against a county plan to house and care for 2,000 children who crossed the U.S.-Mexico border alone. Clay Jenkins on Friday told The Dallas Morning News (http://bit.ly/VscTot ) that there has been fierce debate over the proposal, with activists on both sides expected to attend meetings of the commissioner's court, as well as community forums."

Jenkins is quoted as saying that, "I hope people will listen to their greater angels and see these children as children and not the others." The Dallas County Judge issued these comments at Texas Rep. Dan Branch's (a Republican) July the Fourth picnic.

According to the Houston Chronicle, "Jenkins on Thursday announced three proposed sites to house the immigrant children: a middle school in the Red Bird area, an alternative education building in Grand Prairie and a Parkland Memorial Hospital warehouse."

Jenkins is holding on-line fundraisers to ship thousands upon thousands of migrant kids into warehouses.
