    Seeking Housing For Immigrant Children, Feds Show Up To Inspect Fully-Booked Resort

    Desperate to find housing for thousands of illegal child immigrants from Central America, federal officials embarked on a wild goose chase Friday when they began inspecting what they believed was an abandoned hotel and resort in New York.

    The problem was the 263 room Byblos Niagara Resort and Spa in Grand Island, N.Y. is completely booked through the summer, the Buffalo News reports.

    Agents with U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the Department of Homeland Security showed up to the resort without warning Friday morning.

    “They were thinking the hotel was abandoned and closed,” the facility’s manager Scott Swagler, told the Buffalo News, adding that “it was a complete shock” that federal agencies might want to use the facility in the first place.

    Byblos was once a Holiday Inn but has undergone $4 million in renovations.

    “It looks like there’s been a mistake,” the agents said when told that the facility was in use, according to Swagler.

    A simple Google search or a phone call could have settled the issue. Byblos’ website indicates that the resort is in operation. A phone call placed by The Daily Caller on Saturday was quickly answered by staff who were taking reservations.

    The federal agents told Swagler that they were given the tip about Byblos by Acquest Development, a real estate development company which recently worked on a federal facility in Buffalo.

    It was not until Friday afternoon that local officials and members of Congress were made aware that sites in the area were under consideration to house the child immigrants, the Buffalo News reports.

    “The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and General Services Administration will be conducting an initial assessment of Lexington Commerce Center in Rochester, NY…and the Byblos Niagara Resort in Grand Island, NY…to determine whether it may be used as a facility for temporarily housing children who have come into the United States from other countries without an adult guardian,” wrote Fatima Cuevas, deputy assistant secretary for legislation at HHS, where the agency’s Administration for Children and Families’ Office of Refugee Resettlement is coordinating housing across the U.S.

    "Hello, I'm one of mmany friendly receptionists. So glad to see you!! Can I get you an iced tea and sandwich? I'lm sorry, we were not expecting so much company, but we will have you a room for you in just a few days. Do you need a change of clothes and a shower?"

    Crazy? No reality! Our border patrol and ICE have been recreated, now receptionists only. That is all they are folks. Greeting committees, at best. There is NO security work being done at the border that can be readily seen!

    It makes me wonder if that is not all that Congress ever expected the BP to be. I remember when Clinton had a reluctant Congress and he had a hell of a fight to get authority increase the BP by a mere 500 agents, when we needed thousands. Reagan said border security would be improved after amnesty was granted, then never made a noise about getting it done, just another liar-in-chief.

    For whatever reason both major political parties have spent three decades selling out Americans, or just giving America away. The evidence is so clear that it cannot be denied. but still people vote for one or the other? Why do we cut our nose off to spite our face?

    Consider this for a possibility, I wish the press would investigate this. Is the BP there to keep aliens out, or are they there to keep Americans from keeping aliens out?

    We should seriously try to have many of these illegal alien "children" sent to housing facilities throughout Washington DC. Some nice Georgetown vacant apartments, or appropriated apartments could probably shelter 12 or more children each. Maybe some gymnasium at one of the nearby exclusive schools for the government elite could probably shelter a couple hundred kids.

    How about we demand the politicians live with these illegal aliens, and the MS 13 gang members and the scabies, and drug resistant TB and the bed bugs and the lice? How about it all you liberals? How about it Mark Zuckerberg? Your mansion could shelter a great many of them.

    Seriously, we should start a campaign to challenge the amnesty supporters live with the objects of their sob stories.

    Any chance that we could get a contact-ur-rep campaign going, here on ALIPAC? I'd love to get in on that one.

    They should keep the illegals near the border until deportation. Why add hundreds and thousands of miles to their trip back home? Why not set up a fenced enclosed tent refugee center like they have around other parts of the world?

    Excerpt:

    "Recently the liberal media has been pushing its pro-amnesty agenda by painting a false picture of Reagan on immigration and amnesty. Reagan saw that illegal immigration was becoming a big problem and wanted to stop it. He was persuaded to allow a relatively small amnesty as a bargaining chip to strengthen border security, and more importantly, workplace enforcement. Reagan wanted to fine employers $3,000 to $10,000 for each illegal immigrant deliberately hired. Congress betrayed him on the enforcement measures and probably the extent and eventual costs of the amnesty. Blindness to likely consequences and costs of social legislation seems to be an inherent characteristic of liberal politicians of both major parties. One of the great shortcomings of progressives is their inability to progress to step 2 or 3 in thinking through the logical consequences of legislation. They have an unshakeable faith in the wisdom of the latest poll of uninformed voters. Reagan should have known better than to trust the happy-clappy liberals and servants of the big dollar lobbyists. He made a big mistake, but he admitted it.Ronald Reagan was not comfortable with amnesty. He was pro-enforcement, and he admitted to Edwin Meese that the biggest mistake of his presidency was to sign the 1986 amnesty. We should learn from the wisdom Reagan gained by bitter experience. Any amnesty is a slippery slope to national economic and social disaster."
