Apparently, a portion of the ‘human wave’ coming across the Southern border is headed to Southeast Michigan. Along with all the baggage that goes with them. Interesting that they’re being transported here instead of back their countries of origin, where they are citizens. Also interesting is that they are primarily from Central America (Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras) and made it all the way UP THROUGH MEXICO with the sole purpose of getting across the US border for medical care. Wow. I need to hire me some of these kids to teach mobile logistics and living off the land. Talk about expertise!
And to any reader who’s now thinking we have no heart here at DTG, oh well. These poor kids are being used as pawns in a dangerous game that where actual welfare of our future hangs in the balance. And here’s the thing: It’s not your average, every day, go to work, pay your taxes, raise your kids Joe American who wants or is playing the game.
“The Wolverine Human Services website states Wolverine “continues to provide the best possible services to the children and families of Michigan.” The website doesn’t indicate if Wolverine plans to house out-of-state children, or immigrants who are among the tens of thousands of children crossing illegally into Texas in recent months from Central American countries such as Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras.
When asked if Wolverine is trying to land such a contract, McCree said “That’s up to the government in terms of what we’re doing. I have no insight there.”
According to Wolfe, federal officials are identifying facilities as potential locations “to increase the medical care and temporary sheltering capacity” for the child refugees. When asked if the Vassar Campus or other Michigan locations have been chosen to house child refugees, Wolfe stated “Facilities will be announced when they are identified as viable options.””
