I applaud the governor for doing what is right. It's great that the Bible inspired him to do the right thing, but the Bible isn't necessary to know that providing shelter for immigrant children is the right thing to do.

It is a wonderful, and right thing for the state to do. All other states should follow their lead. Up to now America's attitude towards the displaced children has been disgraceful. In other parts of the world, (i.e.: the middle east), where America's and others presence has caused tens of thousands to flee their homes and country to seek asylum and charity from other nations that give and help freely, while the USA acts so bitter towards a few thousand unfortunate children. America should shelter and educate the children, and prepare them to return to their home lands better prepared to survive and help change their nation for the better. At the same time the USA should help those nations defeat their criminals; many of whom received their training in the US streets and prisons.

Does this then mean that when these kids are eventually flown home to the country they BELONG in, that the trip will be longer? Why do I cynically believe there is little chance of them being returned? Oh that's right, Obama is president, and he wants this to be happening. Never mind.

Funny how so many had little problem spending TRILLIONS to "liberate the Iraqi people" but balk at the spending a fraction of that to help out innocent children.

Christian nation are we?

Governor Patrick would have my vote if I lived in Massachusetts! "Faith without works is dead."
