Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman said he is willing to work with other cities to assist with the immigration crisis at the U.S. southern border.

His spokesman Dan Williamson warns, though, the city’s social service agencies do not have the capacity to take in large numbers of immigrant children.

“If our social services agencies were to take in these children coming over from the southern border, they would need the support to have the capacity to do that,” Williamson said.

“If there is a comprehensive, collaborative solution being discussed among cities throughout the country, Mayor Coleman would want the city of Columbus to be part of that conversation and ultimately part of that solution,” he added.

An estimated 57,000 unaccompanied minors from Central America have crossed the border illegally since last fall.

    Just as President
    Obama Wanted: Illegal Immigrant Children Fail to Appear in Court

    Since President Barack Obama
    and Attorney General Eric Holder started allowing illegal immigrants to flow
    across the border and demanded that we put them up in housing, the country –
    especially the Border States –
    has been in an uproar.

    Just as expected
    from years of illegal aliens being detained in the Unites States, this new
    invasion bringing large groups unaccompanied minors, young men and women aged
    14-17 plus, pregnant mothers and whole families of approximately 50.000. the US
    border Patrol agents overwhelmed by the numbers have been unable to patrol
    outlining areas, where criminal have had more or less free reign to bring in
    more drugs, people with criminal records and Middle Easterners here nefarious
    purposes; smuggled in through the wide open border—with unknown stuff.

    It’s on record
    that many of these kids are the heinous M-13 gangs, others carrying drug
    resistant diseases and the fact Americans taxpayers will have to cover them
    all. On their own recognizance thousands have been passed onto the Dept of
    Health and Human Services, who are distributing these minor illegal aliens into
    foster care and likely illegal alien families. This invasion of illegals who will only be a further
    drain on social services, educational services, penal services, judicial
    services.

    Just
    today I learned from cable TV (this will not be released by general TV channels
    or the mainstream media) that illegal alien families (a mother and child) are
    being released without any medical checkup. They will be going to our schools
    and spreading to our unsuspecting children all manner of disease. How schools
    are already overloaded with illegal alien children and somehow the teaching
    Administration has to deal with it. Further the money Obama wants to fight this
    influx should be spent on our own needy.

    Obama said he wanted
    to deport the kids he imported from Central America—that lie has just
    been exposed. As he knew, once he shipped them to train and bus stations, to
    private homes, they would disappear—never to be seen again till they stole a
    job, took welfare and free health care or committed another crime. Then he will
    give them amnesty. Maybe we should make their attorneys liable for the foreign
    criminals showing up—maybe a $25,000 fine for each kid that disappears.

    “Eighteen out of 20
    illegal immigrant children failed to appear in court for their immigration
    hearings in Texas last Tuesday, Dallas
    News reported.

    On average, 46
    percent of minors fail to appear to their immigration trails. Looks like the
    new criminals will raise the average. Are you Angry yet?

    Loses Track of TB Carrying Illegal Alien in California—in MARCH—Tells us
    NOW

    By Stephen Frank on Jul 27, 2014 07:39 pm, California News and Views.

    Somewhere in California there is a TB carrying diseased
    illegal alien from Mexico. President Obama and his
    Administration in their effort to be sensitive to criminals from foreign
    nations, has allowed this dangerous individual to “escape” custody. They are
    now allowing seriously diseased kids from Central America into this nation.

    IF YOU THINK THAT THIS PRESIDENT, THE SNAIL-PACED
    CONGRESS IS GOING TO ENFORCE THE LAW OF THE LAND, THE PEOPLE’S WILL—GUESS
    AGAIN? THE COUNTRY IS RUN BY SPECIAL INTERESTS, THERE CRONIES, US CHAMBER OF
    COMMERCE AND OF COURSE UNIONS.THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE LAST IN PRIORITY, OTHER
    THAN A LIMITED FEW POLITICIANS. THIS IS OBVIOUS WHEN THEY COULD AMEND PRIOR
    PRESIDENT BUSH 2008 IMMIGRATION LAW, GIVEN NO SPECIAL PRIVILEGES TO CENTRAL
    AMERICANS AND TREATING THEM THE SAME AS MEXICANS.

    We the People say:

    NO AMNESTY for ILLEGAL ALIENS PERIOD!

    “REJECT AMNESTY…OR BE EJECTED
    FROM CONGRESS!”

    Stand up right now and demand
    that every one of the 525 members

    of the House and Senate take the
    Patriotic pledge:

    “I PROMISE THE CITIZENS OF
    AMERICA, THE PEOPLE I TOOK AN OATH TO SERVE, THAT I WILL PROTECT AND PRESERVE
    THE SANCTITY OF U.S. CITIZENSHIP AND THE U.S. CONSTITUTION…SECURE AGAINST
    VOTER FRAUD AND ANY ATTEMPTS BY THE GLOBAL COMMUNITY TO CONTROL OUR ELECTION
    SYSTEM…PROTECT AND DEFEND AMERICAN JOBS AND FAMILIES…AND FIGHT ANY AND ALL
    ATTEMPTS TO GRANT AMNESTY TO MILLIONS OF ILLEGALS, KIDS AND ADULTS!

    Half of Americans are living
    paycheck-to-paycheck. A smaller majority don’t want to work and prefer to leech
    the financial blood from those who are out there, trying to feed there
    families. Millions are still out of a job; many still looking. Obamacare has
    turned out to be a pretense—it’s outrageously expensive and unaffordable.
    Poverty and welfare are at an all-time high. Veteran’s benefits are in danger
    of being cut. Yet Obama wants to allow 30 million illegals to suck at the
    federal, state treasuries. It’s all about votes for a dangerous man who wants a
    third term. Obama is the worst president in the history of the United States—and the most lethal.
    He has proven his loyalty to terrorists and illegals, demonstrated utter
    disdain for America and complete
    disrespect for our military. Help us alert America and rally support to
    remove Obama from office.

    Its unconstitutional
    and a humiliation with deadly consequences. Demand Congress stops the death
    sentence. Check this site that has the phone
    Numbers and Mailing Addresses of Members of Congress at: http://www.contactingthecongress/
    to demand an end to illegal immigration and the dismantling of our military,
    which is our lifeblood against our enemies.

    We must Block amnesty
    for illegal aliens, which is entirely up to us—grassroots America—the little helpless
    citizens. You can also get alternative—NO SPIN– news
