    Standing Room Only At Collin County Meeting About Immigrant Children

    Standing Room Only At Collin County Meeting About Immigrant Children

    July 28, 2014 6:35 PM

    COLLIN COUNTY (CBS 11 NEWS) - With the threat of a so-called “immigrant tsunami,” Collin County Commissioner Mark Reid invited the public to attend commissioner’s court on Monday –- and they did.

    It was standing room only at the county building, as people sounded off about housing immigrant children, despite there being no current plans to do so in Collin County.

    Residents packed the meeting, with an overwhelming majority speaking out against any plan to bring children to the county. There are plans to house as many as 2,000 children in nearby Dallas County.

    Commissioners are discussing a resolution that says housing minors suspected of being in the U.S. illegally is not in the best interests of our citizens.

    A few spoke out against the resolution, like Cody Rodriguez, who said, “the people of Collin do not turn away from children.” Most others supported it.

    Barbara Harliss said, “What we see is not immigration, but an invasion, a deliberate invasion.”

    Concerns about crime and disease were raised. Mike Giles said resources should not be taken from American children to care for others.

    “Don’t force our community, our county to do this. Do it on your own,” said Hugh Cabanaro.

    Darryl Rivard of Prosper echoed those comments, saying, “America is dying. Lazy, uneducated moochers and parasites have infested this nation, and they are rapidly becoming the majority.”

    Another meeting for citizen input is scheduled for next week.
