The article reports:
A contract signed on June 12 would have given St. Paul’s College — which closed last year amid financial difficulties and accreditation issues — $160,000 a month for the next five months.
But the “done deal” unraveled after local residents expressed outrage over the plan.
The original deal was reached between the college and the Health and Human Services Department of the Obama Administration without any input from the sheriff of Lawrenceville or the local residents.
Some residents were concerned that the immigrants from violent countries like Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala would result in more crime in the area. Others felt that the federal money involved could be better spent elsewhere.
There is another aspect of this issue. Americans have generally been vaccinated for measles, chickenpox, and other diseases. Medical care in American (despite ObamaCare) is very good, and many diseases are not common here. Various sources have reported that because of the overwhelming number of immigrants currently coming across the border illegally, there is no real medical screening. This sudden influx of illegal immigrants represents a serious health threat to Americans. We could be creating the kind of situation where the first Arctic explorer sneezed on a native Alaskan and wiped out the whole tribe because they had no antibodies for the common cold. Our government is not protecting us–they are endangering us by the way they are handling border security.
