Sisters of St. Francis confirm federal interest in housing immigrant children in Syracuse

Quote:
The Sisters of St. Francis confirmed today that federal officials are exploring the idea of using the religious order's vacant Syracuse buildings to house immigrant children awaiting deportation.

Officials from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Families and Children traveled to Syracuse on Monday to inspect six buildings on the 10-acre Franciscan campus at Court Street and Grant Boulevard, said Rochelle Casella, speaking for the Sisters of St. Francis of the Neumann Communities.

The inspection is part of an initial site assessment to see if two former convents or the former Maria Regina College center may be suitable for temporarily housing an undetermined of children from Central America who are awaiting deportation hearings.

Cassella stressed in an interview Tuesday that the Sisters of St. Francis did not decide whether to accept any federal offer to lease or buy the properties.

"The Sisters say there are a lot of factors to be taken into consideration," Cassella said. "The Sisters have made no decision about the future of the property."


Federal officials initiated this week's visit, she said, and looked over potential living quarters that include a gymnasium and commercial cafeteria.

HHS officials would not confirm the Syracuse visit.
So many points to ponder...

1) Notice how this administration is willing to make these children get as far away from the actual border as possible...How many millions will it cost to ship these kids hundreds of miles away to places they don't belong in the first place?...

2) "What the community thinks" better be the friggin' biggest question on their "consideration" list...Of course, if the answer is "no, then they'll be vilified just like the protesters who have NO SAY as to whether their community gets inundated with foreigners...

3) Anyone notice how those damn Catholics are evil and a horror to women and patriotism and employee rights and they should all go fornicate themselves when it comes to their beliefs, but the SECOND Obama needs help stockpiling lice-infested children he red-carpetted into the country, he goes straight to the same Catholics that were public enemy #1 just last week?...

whoa whoa whoa. I never hear Obama or his administration say one bad word about the Catholics or their religion. Are you putting filthy words in other peoples' mouths or are you listening to someone else who does? No matter that was way out of line.

As for the piece it is an attempt to house children. One would think they were a flotilla of zombies the way they are being treated by most on the right.

And as for religion. Children- ALL children- are especially blessed by God.

It makes a certain amount of sense. Neither the end of the nuns' mission nor the deportation of the invading children are expected to occur before the Second Coming.

Zombies would be preferable, they could simply be shot in the head.

These undesirable children may be blessed by God, but they were apparently a bother to their country, their parents, and now to us, and will be for decades to come.

A bunch of adults screaming at children, sure weren't lying when you said they were unwelcome.

Before Elmira, they tried a closed religious college in Lawrenceville, Va. No go, but the government is on the hook for $90k/month.

One more attempt north, and the kids will be in Canada. I'm sure they will be allowed to cross that border.

So? Our parents' and grandparents' generations dropped napalm, incendiaries, explosives and nuclear weapons on children to further the national interest. What's your point?

Unless they are still in the womb of course.
Then the Left could care less.
