The top secret operation to move illegal alien children from detention centers near the border to locations throughout the United States is continuing with the government now engaging Catholic churches to shelter the border jumpers until they can be processed and released.

The Daily Caller reports that a diocese in California is acting as a way station for the illegal children, housing them until other living arrangements are made elsewhere in the U.S.

The department “has reached out to the diocese and the bishop, and asked us to shelter families in transition,” Maria Christina Mendez, at the Office of Hispanic Affairs, told The Daily Caller. The services would be needed for the next 18 months, “or longer,” she said.

In response, the diocese has offered to let family groups of migrants stay at its buildings for up to three days, while they are being relayed by federal immigration agencies to cities and towns where they want to live, she said.

“Some of them are going to the East Coast, some of them are going all the way up north,” she told The Daily Caller.

The illegal inflow includes at least 100,000 people since October. Many are in so-called “family units” of adults and children.

Ordinary citizens are not informed of these arrangements, causing a lot of anger to be directed at authorities:

The diocese’ activities were exposed only after parishioners called into Rush Limbaugh’s radio show to protest the bishop’s agreement to provide shelter to the families for DHS.

“They have made the decision that they’re going to absorb the immigrants that are coming through because the federal government called the bishop’s office on Monday,” said one of the parishioners, named Ann. “The church will reimburse us for any out-of-pocket expenses and we were told not to talk to anybody about it, especially the media.”

They were told to be silent to prevent any local protests, Ann said. “They don’t want a lot of people there at the churches when they busload these mothers and children,” said Ann.

Another fait accompli involving the movement of illegal alien children occurred in the Chicago area where more than 400 illegals have been dumped by the government, according to Senator Mark Kirk.

Sen. Mark Kirk said today that 429 unaccompanied minors from the Mexican border crisis are in Chicago in the custody of a federal agency, and he wants to know if any of the children have criminal records.

Kirk, an Illinois Republican, said the children are in the custody of the Health and Human Services Department. His news release did not say where the children are being housed.

In the release, Kirk also said the State Department is “unable to confirm if any of these individuals has a criminal record or background.”

He added: “If any of these individuals has a criminal record in their home country, our government owes it to the American people to facilitate the sharing of records and reassure our nation that these individuals pose no threat.”

Kirk has written to the U.S. ambassadors in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador asking whether their embassies have done background checks on the “unaccompanied alien children” who have entered the U.S. at its southern border.

This is a prudent and sensible request. The Department of Homeland Security said in a report that 47% of the illegal alien children are young men between the ages of 14 to 17 — prime recruiting age for drug cartels. Also, it would not be unheard of for children growing up in such impoverished conditions to engage in a life of petty crime.

Don’t people have a right to know if the government is going to dump kids with a criminal record in their midst?

According to Illinois Rep. Gutierrez, apparently not…

So one set of laws for previous immigrants & another for his future constituents.

Rep. Gutierrez is a political HO!

"You must be a person of good moral character (certain crimes such as aggravated felony, drug related, gambling offenses, prostitution, etc. will most likely disqualify an applicant);"

I don't understand. If someone comes here and tries to become a citizen LEGALLY, the hurdles are immense.

There should be NO health, criminal or drug check for border crashers? Are you serious?

Frankly, they should be quarantined. The spread of drugs, crimes and disease is what they claim to be rampant where they originated. American citizens should not be subject to an epidemic intentionally imposed on them by Marxists looking to destroy and overthrow the nation.

It blows my mind that they are actually now just bussing them all in. No ID required to fly on our planes. No background checks of them or those who claim them.

They've gone beyond simply not requiring illegals to follow the laws the rest of us have to. Now they are just BUSSING THEM IN. Can you believe it?

And telling reporters and even congress people they have no right to witness and report on it or know anything about it.

And we just sit here. Who knew it would be so simple to overthrow the American people? Well, it is.

Oh, i'm going to cry, "open your heart", boo hoo. Doubtless the congressman would be saying the same thing if the "visitors" were Samoan. But if they were, would they vote for him?
If nothing else the welfare offices will be busy. Another blow to America from Obama, and in time for the 2014/16 elections. Bet on it, all the stops will be pulled out for it.

"Kirk has written to the U.S. ambassadors in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador asking whether their embassies have done background checks on the “unaccompanied alien children” who have entered the U.S. at its southern border."
Wow! Kirk leaps into action. Embassies should by implication do "background checks" on illegals after they illegally enter the US? Por que?

With Repubs like this, we're already done for. He is an idiot.

This intra-state delegation tiff is just for show. Kirk, when he was in the House, would also throw some bones e.g. expressing "concern" about gangbanger illegals. In the end he tended to squish out. He along with Bob Corker went along with the Border Surge add-on to the Gang of 8 bill last year. He's somewhat of a reflection of this article's author - having been for it before being vehemently against it.

How many of these "family members or sponsors" are actually human traffickers? Is DHS helping deliver kids into sexual slavery?

Or is it just impolite to ask?

In some cases this may be happening.

The Zeta cartel certainly uses its women as a profit center, for intelligence gathering and for fun.

As the presidency continues, it is getting more and more opaque.

If any cases are found, they will say it is the exception. If more cases are found they will have an other fall back position, another excuse. The last excuse will be they tried and their motives were good.

I think everyone can agree with a no tat rule. You get sent back immediately if you have a tattoo.

HOW IS OBAMA NOT IN VIOLATION OF HIS OATH TO UPHOLD THE CONSTITUTION?
In the preamble, it says the purpose of the constitution is to: "insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare...."
What Obama is doing is the exact opposite. He's allowing diseased-ridden illegals into the country. How is this promoting the general welfare? He has no idea who's coming into the country. How is this promoting the common defense? He's allowing known gang members into the country. How is this insuring domestic tranquility? Obama is violating the constitution. This is clearly an impeachable offense -- and the GOP is filing a lawsuit about Obamacare? Obama should be impeached by the House. If the Senate doesn't want to remove him from office, let it be on the heads of those in the Senate who vote against it.
If what Obama is doing to ruin this country is not an impeachable offense, then there is no such thing as an impeachable offense.

nicely put, but if conservatives hold his feet to the fire, and the media keeps with the bleedingheart stories guess what people get to think about.

Right repubs. bad, heartless, but libs who want to tax and destroy this country are somehow compassionate. Yeah right.

...and if the conservatives persist in NOT holding his feet to the fire then they are as guilty as he is.

What diseases that have been exceedingly rare here for decades are going to make a big comeback? Tuberculosis? Polio? How many others? And what about diseases native to Central and South America that we don't usually see here - and for which we have no natural immunities - are going to ravage America?

How many people are going to die of the diseases these children are bringing with them?

Overwhelming the border is part of the agenda. The agenda not held by nationalists. Illnesses in school with strange cases to come is meant to overwhelm the system too. We are seeing the beginning of a catalyst to do something.

If I'm correct, what will this chaos bring? Disarming those who stop buses full of illegal aliens going north? Perhaps, it is to gain another million Marxists to vote for more Marxism. Whatever it is, the world is on fire. I'm not waiting for the government to come protect me.

“Sen. Kirk, open your heart.”

And close your mind. Legal immigrants have backgrounds checked. Why?
