With the children being sent across the country, a Houston woman went on an epic rant when she learned that officials were looking at a closed school in her neighborhood as a potential detention facility.
Bernadette Lancelin not only opposed the idea, but did so emphatically:
It’s not right. Now billions of dollars want to be borrowed from the White House to help feed and house them.
What about the kids here? In our neighborhood? In our country? Not just in this neighborhood but in our country.
All these kids? Really? Why can’t they go back?
I’m sorry that their parents are in poor living conditions or surroundings or whatever’s going on out there. I don’t care.
I care about what’s going on right here in my own back yard, my neighborhood.
Am I the only one in this community that’s out here that watches the news this morning. Oh, my god! I feel alone right now with this, and I’m very saddened by it.
