Lawmaker Sends Letter To Archbishop Over Illegal Immigrant Housing

Baltimore County State Delegate and candidate for county council Wade Kach has sent a letter to Baltimore Archbishop William Lori to say that he is "greatly alarmed" about a proposal by Catholic Charities to house up to 50 children who have entered the U.S. illegally from Central America.

Catholic Charities announced this week of its intention to apply for a federal grant to house the children at St. Vincent Villa in Timonium.

The home is not in Kach's current legislative district, but it is in the Third Councilmatic District, where Kach is the Republican nominee.

Some people act like Christians toward their fellow man, others not so much.

My first job out of college was working at St. Vincents in Timonium MD. They house children from ages 5 to 13 and they were over capacity 20 years ago. The children housed there are predominantly wards of the state. Most of them will stay that way until they are 18. Being a ward of the state is not much fun but these kids are in a much better place then where they came from. Now Catholic Charities wants to house illegal immigrants there? It would seem to me that the children in Maryland would be better suited to fill these open spots. Not illegals from another country flow there from another region carrying god knows what illnesses.

It's my understanding
Grants are just taxpayers money.

American cannot protect the world--
or we will become a third world country ourselves!!

I stand with the Delegate on this one.

Send them damn illegal aliens back to their own countries. They are not our problems. We have our own problems in this country and we need to deal with them first.
