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. …
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.”
