Children’s Home Bids on Rundown Motel to House Immigrants, Dim Jim Hoft’s Head Explodes

More: Hotel to Undergo Transformation Into Immigrant Center

DIM JIM HOFT SCREAMS:

WESLACO - A center for unaccompanied minors set to open in Weslaco later this year will be the first of its kind in the nation, officials with a network of non-profits said.

BCFS Health and Human Services secured a multi-million federal contract to house young illegal immigrants at the site of the current Palm Aire Hotel and Suites on FM 1015.

Representatives with BCFS said the Palm Aire will undergo a multi-million dollar transformation.

BCFS runs a temporary detention center for young illegal immigrants at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio.

BCFS began as an orphanage for Hispanic children in San Antonio in 1944

“Children … who weren’t able to go into other orphanages. They weren’t allowed at the white orphanages, they weren’t allowed at the African-American orphanages,” said Krista Piferrer, with BCFS external affairs.

The agency has grown into a multi-national network of health and human service non-profit organizations.

[…]

“Our central intake facility at Weslaco will be licensed by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services as a child residential center,” Piferrer said.

Piferrer said medical staff will be on hand so children with diseases or injuries will not be transferred to local hospitals.

The agency applied for a conditional-use permit with the city of Weslaco. City Manager Leo Olivares said the request has to go through the regular planning and zoning process. If approved, it will go to the city commission for a final vote.

The fact that Baptist Child & Family Services is even putting in a bid on this property would indicate that it is not a flourishing luxury resort, but a defunct, rundown motel in an undesirable location. It is doubtful that many of the luxury amenities that the Palm Aire may have once included are still kept up. As the final paragraph explains, the request still has to be approved and voted on.

If you watch the video at the link you will see that the property is quite run down.

None of this however has prevented Dim Jim and #TCOT from their Derpademic of HURR HURR OBAMA GIVES TEH DISEASED ILLEAGLES TEH LUXURY RESORT & ARE BRAVE VETERANS IS ALL HOMELESS!!!!!!

This is what the facility will look like after it’s converted into a center for unaccompanied children — it’s a photo of one of the other facilities run by BCFS:

Does that look like a “luxury resort” to you?
