But, they are not alone and likely some of the other top ‘welcoming’ counties in America will see numbers higher than that.
See the data maintained by the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement and note that MoCo, although among the highest counties that will absorb the illegal alien teens, is not the highest.
And, by the way, the data at ORR is only through March and you know the April 2021 invasion is surely one of the largest in many years.
If you don’t see your county, it doesn’t mean your state is off the hook, state data is here.
‘Non-profit’ organizations in the county are scrambling for money they say they need to keep the mostly teenaged boys out of gangs.
What a mess. If you live in this wealthy Maryland County that borders Washington, DC, move! But, first get your kids out of the school system which will see the disastrous impact of Biden’s Open Borders policy first.
LOL! the Biden gang has put out the word that Unaccompanied Alien Children, a title used for years, is now verboten and we must refer to the illegal aliens as Unaccompanied Minors. So therefore, my message to you is to keep using the accurate term—Unaccompanied Alien Children.
As Montgomery County expects wave of unaccompanied minors, local nonprofit works to expand capacity
There have been at least 104 undocumented migrant children resettled with family or sponsors in Montgomery County since October, according to the Office of Refugee Resettlement. However, the latest data is from February which likely means many more children have already relocated to the county.
As of late April, Montgomery County Public Schools recorded 70 students are believed to be unaccompanied minors. Officials expect 3,000 undocumented children to reach the county by this year or as early as summer.
The federal data base shows that Montgomery County received 178 UACs through the end of March, so if 70 registered for school, where are the other 108? And, why is the database not up to date?
The Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services (MCHHS) is partnered with eight organizations: Identity, Inc., Family Services, Inc., CASA, Mary’s Center, Impact Silver Spring, Catholic Charities, LAYC (Latin American Youth Council) and Ayuda.
About eight or so years ago, I posted often about CASA, see here if you are interested.
The county had planned to call FEMA and the Office of Refugee Resettlement for federal funding since it’s one of the top 10 receiving sites for asylum-seeking children.
“The call took place but there were no commitments from FEMA about funding,” a MCHHS spokesperson said.
One of the major concerns to avoid is the involvement of gangs.
Community leaders know gangs are preparing themselves to recruit many of the young people as members offer what could seem like a family environment.
A Montgomery County police spokesperson said the department is working with the Department of Health and Human Services to address gang preventative measures for all undocumented minors.
In Virginia, there have been 119 resettlements in Fairfax County.
The sponsors who help happen at the federal level. The Office of Refugee Resettlement works with organizations such as Bethany Christian Services & Lutheran Immigration & Refugee Services on sponsoring children. These organizations previously are certified and licensed at the federal level.
Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, headquartered at the Inner Harbor in Baltimore, is a federal refugee contractor which I write about often at RRW. The UACs, however, are NOT refugees, remember that!
$55 million is their take (of your money) for the children! over the last twelve months.
P.S. Maryland Republican Governor Hogan is apparently not saying a word about the ‘children’ flooding into the state for taxpayers to support. Twenty other governors are saying NO, even as the federal government ignores them.
