An Open Border Impacts Every State

On June 28th, Breitbart reported that the American Hebrew Academy in Greensboro, North Carolina, will be leased to the U. S. Health and Human Services (HHS) to resettle and house UACs (Unaccompanied Alien Children) arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border.

The article reports:

The contract will begin housing UACs early next month and about 800 staff will be hired to provide educational courses, translation services, recreational activities, medical care, counseling, and security.

“The school will be leased to the federal government for a period of five years for this use only, continuing the original American Hebrew Academy mission of educating children and preparing them for their future,” the school’s announcement states.

The American Hebrew Academy, which closed in 2019 but reopened last year, is a private boarding school for the nation’s wealthiest households. Tuition costs up to $42,000 a school year. The campus includes 31 buildings, 35 student apartments, an $18 million athletic center, and a 22-acre private lake.

This infuriates me. We have homeless veterans living on the streets of America and families that can barely afford a place to live, and we are housing children who are here illegally in luxury.

The article continues:

The contract with the American Hebrew Academy speaks to the volume and rate at which the Biden administration is releasing UACs into American communities. As Breitbart News recently reported, the number of UACs arriving at the border continues to rise.

In May, alone, nearly 15,000 UACs were apprehended at the border — nearly all of which will be turned over to HHS and resettled across the U.S. In a single month, the Biden administration released about 8,000 UACs into the U.S. interior.

The overwhelming majority of UACs arriving at the border are teen boys. The latest federal data shows that 72 percent of all UACs are over 14-years-old and 66 percent are boys.

I am not convinced that housing teenage boys until they reach 18 and then turning them loose in America will in any way contribute to the well-being of America. We need to stop EVERYONE at the border and only allow people into America who have the legal right to come here. The first thing we are currently doing is to teach those flowing across our southern border not to respect our laws. That does not bode well for our future.
