That headline is not the substance of this media article (below) – but for those of you who have followed the intents and activities of Emanuel Inc. you know where this is going.
HHS (The Multi-Trillion Dollar Agency) was selected by the administration to facilitate the transition of illegal aliens into local communities. Doing so allows a massive amount of money to be shifted around inside the agency. (emphasis added in the article and after we’ll expand):
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, a former Obama administration chief of staff, wants to expand the city’s efforts to house young illegal immigrants from Central America, reportedly proposing to shelter an additional 1,000 of them by year’s end.
“The influx of unaccompanied child migrants is a growing humanitarian crisis that we can no longer ignore,” said Emanuel, according to The Chicago Tribune. “While we have our own challenges at home, we cannot turn our backs on children that are fleeing dangerous conditions.”
The mayor’s office says the federal government will pay for the youths’ shelter, education, health care, food, safety and social services¹.
On the left Rahm Emanuel’s brother, Zeke – another Obama architect. On the right the legislative construction crew.
However, officials are trying to get Chicago lawyers to *provide free legal services² for the youths, who arrived in hopes of staying with U.S. relatives but now face federal deportation hearings.
[ ¹, ² *Remember, Obama and Eric Holder have created a taxpayer funded system to use AmeriCorps to represent the illegal alien families during legal proceedings. Remember also there are no deportation hearings - that part is pure conjecture.]
To be sure, Chicago has its own challenges, including a recent violent-crime wave in which at least 82 people were shot over the Fourth of July holiday weekend, with 16 victims dying.
The Chicago area already has nine such facilities, which according to the National Immigrant Justice Center have roughly *500 beds for illegal-immigrant youths³ already in the United States.
[³ *Remember, despite media reports these are not "unaccompanied youths"; they are with their illegal guardian, usually Mom. HHS own internal data show the average length of stay in transitional housing is 30 to 35 days and HHS spends about $36 to 40k in grant money for each child unit.]
City official have yet to disclose the locations of the new sites and how many they will need and must be retrofitted to accommodate the youths.
Emanuel, also a former Illinois Democratic congressman, announces his plan amid the national debate on what to do with the estimated 57,000 illegal youths who have illegally crossed the southern U.S. border during the past nine months.
They hope to stay in the U.S. based on a 2008 law, enacted to curb human trafficking, that allow youths from non-border countries to live here.
Other cities and states have rejected housing the new arrivals, including the residents of the California city of Murrieta who held protests and turned away buses full of illegal border-crossers.
Earlier this month, Maryland Democratic Gov. Martin O’Malley, a major Obama supporter during his re-election effort, called on the president’s administration to take a more “humanitarian” approach to the crisis.
The White House in turn purportedly leaked work that O’Malley opposed a plan to send some of the youths to a suburban Maryland facility. The governor responded by saying he fears the new arrivals would not be welcome at that particular site.
Emanuel policy chief Michael Negron told the Tribune that his administration is focused on facilities already equipped for residential use, including those once used as hotels and dormitories. (read more)
The three primary recipients of the HHS UAC grants are these groups (BCFS, SouthWest Key, and Catholic Charities):
BCFS-EMD (Baptist Child and Family Services – Emergency Management Division) $280 million. (link)
South West Key Programs Inc $122 million (link)
Catholic Charities USA $20,724,716 / Catholic Bishops $28,850,211 Total: $49,574,927
…AND in Chicago alone – Heartland Human Care Services !!
Remember, this is $27 million already sent to Chicago for UAC’s (Unaccompanied Alien Children). According to 2013 tax filings this organization gets 99.68% of revenue from Federal Grants.
That might surprise you, but it really shouldn’t. Chicago’s Heartland Human Care Services (HHCS) is well known to us because of the MASSIVE amount of Obama stimulus money they were given in 2010: $241,000,000 + (2010 pdf tax filing here)
Since 1980 Heartland Human Care Services, a Division of Chicago’s Heartland Alliance, has been led by Dr Sid L Mohn:
Dr. Mohn is responsible for developing and implementing the strategic plan that allows the organization to meet its mission. Through his passion and vision, Dr. Mohn has helped Heartland Alliance and its partners become the premier service-based human rights organization in the Midwest.
Prior to his tenure at Heartland Alliance, he held positions with the Chicago Urban League, the Kane/DeKalb Counties Employment and Training Consortium, International Documentation, and La Casa Center.
Dr. Mohn is a graduate of Temple University, received his Master of Divinity from the School of Theology at Claremont, California, and his doctorate from McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago. He is a United Church of Christ clergyperson and a member of the Order of Ecumenical Franciscans.
Dr. Mohn is past Chair of the Board of Directors of the National Immigration Forum and is a member of the Board of Directors of International Social Services U.S. Committee for Refugees, Chicago Commission on Human Relations, and Global Chicago.
Here’s an article Mohn wrote for the Huffington Post on why Chicago is the perfect host for a previous NATO meeting. He’s a community organizer’s ‘community organizer’. I can literally only imagine the amount of graft within this Chicago network. $227,550 for “remodeling expenses”? Gee, I wonder who got that contract. $110,895 for legal services in Boston Mass? But the group operates in Chicago ?
Hopefully people are beginning to see the picture now. There are many organizations openly advocating for the continuance of illegal immigration, and the housing, facilitation, processing and eventual placement of those illegal aliens. But what you don’t see, because the media will not report on it, is those same entities have a vested financial interest in the business of illegal immigration.
Just on this aspect of a border crisis alone, the “Unaccompanied Alien Children”, HHS has distributed grants totaling over $666,000,000.00 to contractors, groups, and entities whose entire existence is dependent on the continuance of the flow of illegals. This includes “churches” and “faith based” organizations who are receiving hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to keep the scheme operating. Why would they want the border secure and the spigot turned off ?
Now take a look at Chicago Mayor and Mrs. Pelosi again:
Any questions ?
