A Cincinnati charity says it has applied for a federal grant aimed at bringing to Ohio some of the immigrant children who have flooded across the U.S. border recently.

Catholic Charities Southwestern Ohio has applied for the grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to help house the children. More than 57,000 minors have arrived since October, mostly from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador because of drug violence and other problems in those countries.

Ted Bergh, CEO of Catholic Charities, says the children would be housed in a “dormitory environment” that could provide short-term shelter, education and counseling.

Federal law requires that children be placed in protective care while their immigration cases are resolved.

    Catholic Charities is the “non-profit” (but they profit handsomely off the backs of illegal alien minors) that is burdening my children’s future with the debt of raising someone else’s illegal alien children. MY AMERICAN children are being ripped off by the Catholics. Money is the root of all evil and this is as evil as it gets. The Catholic Church is STEALING my children’s future out from under them. They are running the longest running hoax in history. And they are really proud of themselves.
