1.1 Million American Homeless Youth and Obama Spends Millions to House Illegals
July 16, 2014 By Jennifer Burke
“When did we forget that a nation owes its first allegiance to her own citizens?” Those were the words written in a USA Today op-ed by Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions in response to President Obama’s request for $3.7 billion from Congress to care for the massive influx of illegal aliens who are crossing the U.S.-Mexican border. While Congress has not yet appropriated those funds, that has not stopped Barack Obama from entering into a partnership with the Baptist Church to house ‘unaccompanied minors’.
On Wednesday, it was reported that BCFS, the Baptist Child and Family Services, was awarded a $50 million grant by Obama to purchase and convert the 7 acre Palm Aire Hotel, located in Texas, into a facility to house illegal alien youth. The facility not only offers lighted tennis courts, three swimming pools, a Jacuzzi and concierge service, it would also take care of the mental and medical needs of these illegal aliens.

The Gateway Pundit also reported that Barack Obama has “gifted the BCFS $190,707,505 this month to build offices in six cities and four states.” The offices are scheduled to be located in New York, NY, Miami, FL, Houston, TX, Dallas, TX, Sacramento-are, CA, and Los Angeles-area, CA.
The mayor of Los Angeles, Eric Garcetti, has been meeting with non-profit groups in an effort to find housing for illegal aliens in his city. He proudly stated about his actions, “As a father, who are we as Americans if we do not step forward first. I see this as not just a moral issue, but a practical one.”
This move has been met with great criticism from homeless activist Ted Hayes who sees this clamoring to offer free housing to illegal aliens as a slap in the face to U.S. citizens. He added, “It’s embarrassing. It’s hurtful. It’s like a father saying he loves children outside of the family more than he loves his own.” As Barack Obama says we must do right by the illegal alien children, who according to Democrat Texas Senator Henry Cuellar, account for less than 20% of those crossing the border, his own country has over 1.1 million school age children, who are American citizens, who are homeless and living on the street.
