There is an article making the rounds under various mastheads about the surge of illegal alien children flooding the US, and about an organization named BCFS. The article is laced with misinformation and outright lies.
I know, because I've been there and I am a part of it. I am a member of the so-called 'BCFS Security Force' cited in this story. It's true these kids show up infested with lice, scabies, and other health problems and many of them with emotional problems created by the trauma of their journey and the treatment they received along the way, but they are receiving medical treatment, clean clothing, good food, counseling, and religious services if desired. The rest of this account is completely inaccurate and misleading.
BCFS (Baptist Child and Family Services), (not affiliated with the Baptist Church) Emergency Services, Incident Management Team, of which I am a member, is not a 'security force'. We are the only organization in the country capable of managing the care and security of children on this scale and we do it in a very humane and efficient manner. We are very vigilant of the conduct of people providing care for these children and mis-conduct does result in immediate dismissal. The person who kept this 'journal' and provided the 'background' for this story is probably one of those dismissed.
BTW, my involvement, and the travel and very long hours I have invested is part of the reason I have not been posting to this blog. While I am critical of the policies which I think brought this crisis about and the way it is being handled on a national basis, I am proud to be a part of an organization dealing very effectively with the care and management of these children who are caught up in the situation.
Here is a link to BCFS's rebuttal to the very unprofessional and untrue article: Rebuttal.
