How the RW Hate Machine derailled a private holding facility for immigrant children

Fox News reports a bogus story first posted by Kristinn Taylor (of Free Republic) on the site of the Dumbest Man on the Internet, then picked up by Drudge, then the entire RW monkey house, and finally by the Old Fair and Balanced.











Note this was being done by a private religious organization, with their own money. The $50 million Fox and the rest of the assholes involved with this bogus story mention was nota government subsidy, it was the estimated economic benefit to the area where this project was to have taken place.








Here's the Big Lie from Hoft:





According to a Hidalgo County commissioner, the BCFS contract for the Palm Aire Hotel and Suites is an annual one worth $50 million per year. It is not part of the $3.7 billion emergency funding for the illegal alien invasion requested by the Obama administration as the bill hasn’t yet passed but it is a good indication of where the money will go.[/break1]thegatewaypundit.com/2014/07/feds-to-open-50-million-resort-hotel-for-illegal-children-complete-with-tennis-courts-sauna-pools/]http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2014/07 ... una-pools/





Here's the truth:





Hidalgo County leaders, including Judge Ramon Garcia and Pct. 1 Commissioner A.C. Cuellar, have been proponents of the project.





“I think we could use something like that in Weslaco,” Cuellar said. “Anytime that humanitarian problems happen I’m interested, especially when it involves kids.”





He added that the project, which BCFS said will employ 650 people and have an annual economic impact of some $50 million, would be a major development boon.[/break1]valleymorningstar.com/premium/article_da0e1c8a-0b6b-11e4-b721-001a4bcf6878.html]http://www.valleymorningstar.com/premiu ... f6878.html





Not to worry, though. Thanks to the above, the project is now dead. Here's the result of the latest Big Lie from the right:





WESLACO - BCFS Health and Human Services on Wednesday withdrew a proposal to turn a Weslaco hotel into a facility for young illegal immigrants.





A media release from the group of non-profit agencies cited “negative backlash caused by information misreported to the public” as the reason for walking away from the project.





The agency had agreed to use $3.8 million in non-government funds to buy the Palm Aire Hotel and Suites on FM 1015.[/break1]krgv.com/news/bcfs-walks-away-from-palm-aire-hotel-project/]http://www.krgv.com/news/bcfs-walks-awa ... l-project/





Another big win for the GOP and their propaganda channel, Fox "News".


In the Trump era anything is true if enough people believe it.

other links about the Charity and this situation, July 12, 2014Nonprofit seeks OK for child immigrant facilityA Baptist nonprofit has plans to transform Weslaco’s classic Palm Aire Hotel into an intake facility for children illegally immigrating into the United States by themselves — assuming the group can get through a city permitting process.The 600-bed facility would take children ages 12 to 17 immediately from Border Patrol custody and house them an average of 15 days, providing medical and mental health care, on-site educational programs, recreational programs and case management, said Krista Piferrer, a spokeswoman for BCFS.The organization, Baptist Child & Family Services, runs health and human services operations worldwide, including an existing facility in Harlingen. That would be closed and replaced with the Palm Aire, which would be double the size. BCFS hopes to open it by Oct. 1.Piferrer said exact renovations to the motel were undetermined, but would adhere to Texas Department of Family and Protective Services licensing standards and would include fencing around the property and security precautions. She added that one major appeal of the Palm Aire was outdoor space.

Kristinn Taylor needs to stick with delivering flowers in Melbourne Florida and quit lying about things that end up hurting children

It looks like the RWNJ in Arizona didn't scare a busload of immigrants, but a busload of American kids."Regardless of what one thinks about Babeu's position, it turns out his alleged informant at Homeland Security may have been informed. The Arizona Republic writes that not only did the bus of immigrant children never show up but a bus stopped by the protesters turned out to be carrying U.S. children headed to a YMCA summer camp."http://news.yahoo.com/arizona-sheriff-d ... cAZh7QtDMD
