Greece: Valid Passport Required?


Reilich: "We don't know the immunization history of these individuals. Is there the potential for disease? We don 't know how long they'd be there. The government's intent is to house them until they can locate a family member to reunite them if one exists." (Interpreted he means "ANYWHERE BUT GREECE, NY!")

Scats ~~ Did we worry about such trivia as immunizations in our past?

Maybe chubby white men can be housed in Greece. Wake up Billy and study your family's history to the USA.

Hey folks, maybe you can rent an extra bedroom in your house to one of these children.

Under Fed Regulations, anybody under 26 years of age is a "child".

No one has brought up the education of these children. Since their parents haven't put their names in the lottery for school of choice they have to be treated in a like manner to the other children in their geographic area. Even homeless children are educated in the US according to their vicinity. In the city there are displaced children from Africa that are in their schools. They need lots of socialization and ESL assistance. All these 1600 Lexington children will go to Holmes Rd and Buckman Heights and Odyssey (non-choice area) and Olympia. They can't spread them around. That would be treating children differently that are in similar circumstances(location residence) to the other children already in Greece houses. Maybe there can be a new initiative in the International Baccalaureate program at Odyssey to actually have international students.
And Reilich's whine about the lack of amenities in the 90,000 SF facilty are pointless. It would be fairly simple for the feds to flip that warehouse, add bathrooms and windows, fire sprinklers and detectors, kitchen and eating facilities and a bus loop. The federal government has our unlimited funds. It could happen in 3 weeks. It doesn't matter what our supervisor says. Just because he got emails is no reason to discriminate against the developer at 1600 Lexington or those children.

To 6:53AM ~~ Reilich gave it a quick mention. Are you certain that the building address is in the HR/BH feeder? Many times, properties on the fringes of Greece are actually in other districts, like Hilton or Spencerport.

Plug any address into this. Then choose school district.

This is definitely Greece Central. Yaay! We are so lucky.

There are to date 56,000 children. The Feds are looking to turn around the building in 72 hours to be habitable. The building has no windows or kitchen and two toilets. The rest of the building, 2.2 million square feet is manufacturing and businesses. Having hundreds of kids running around in a building that has no windows in it all day is in realistic. After all they can not come and go as they please. Some are believed to be MS-13 gang members and they are their until they find next of kin in Honduras. Not an over night fix. We can't treat them like animals and this space is not fit to house dogs much less people.

To 6PM ~~ They are NOT looking to bring 56,000 kids to Greece. Your attempt to sound informed & authoritative is greatly diminished by your poor writing skills. While I've heard about these kids on the national news, you are the first to mention gangs. WHERE did that come from??

12:27 am As a slender girl in junior high I learned a valuable lesson, as I poked fun at a heavy girl she turned to me and said "I maybe fat but your ugly, I can loose weight!" Put it all in perspective.

To 9:40AM ~~ "Ugly" often goes all the way to the core ;)

A friend who is married to a very large woman once said that when another man questioned his choice of a spouse based upon her size ... he says he told him that "at least I know what I'm going to end up with!"

SCATS,

The plausible gang connections are all over the internet. Just google illegal immigrant gang affiliation, or whatever.

Besides, how would they not be infiltrating this massive giveaway? The gangs get into anything they want to insert themselves into, and this youth migration would be an obvious target.

To 9:23AM ~~ Until we know for sure that gangs ARE involved, let's try to keep this already onerous topic to a manageable size.
