Lutherans may be operating centers for ‘unaccompanied minors’ in your state

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 8, 2014

Just can’t get away from it.  The issue of  illegal alien teens (and to a lesser extent women and children) surging across our border is inescapable.  And, so you know that its not just the Catholics cashing in on the crisis, here is the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod with its action appeal for its master—Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services!

We don’t know who the 45 partners are, but below are LIRS subcontractors.

Gotta keep up their real estate holdings! The Lutheran Center (LIRS headquarters) is a six-story structure constructed in 1999 on property owned by Baltimore’s historic Christ Lutheran Church. The building is located near Baltimore’s Inner Harbor in the historic Federal Hill neighborhood, a charming area rich with history and an eclectic array of eateries and shopping venues.

More than 45 Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS) partners are providing care and services to help the influx of unaccompanied immigrant children crossing the southern U.S. border in response to what is being called a humanitarian crisis.

That support is being provided at the request of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Refugee Resettlement — the government body with whom LIRS has worked as an “advocate and strong partner” for the past decade on behalf of the safety of unaccompanied immigrant children, said Kimberly Haynes, LIRS director of Children’s Services.

LIRS was asked “to expand and engage networks” to help meet the growing needs of thousands of children, including many fleeing “horrific” situations in Central America, Haynes said.

Before I give you their state affiliates, check out this post we wrote in May of last year about their finances.  (This was when LIRS was lobbying for S.744).

Have a look at a recent Form 990 for Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services, page 9. They had income in that year of $31,653,748 and, of that, you, the taxpayers of America, gave them $30,376,568.  Their CEO* makes $204,186 in salary and benefits.  Where is the ACLU?  No separation of church and state here!   The church is the state!  Just wait until CAIR figures all this out and starts demanding the Muslim share of your tax dollars!

Looks like about 96% of their budget comes from you (the US taxpayer)!

They are probably jumping for joy this afternoon as the word spreads that Obama now wants $3.7 Billion for the “crisis,” a chunk of which will flow into LIRS coffers!  That earlier $2 billion looks like chicken scratch in comparison!

Here is a list of LIRS subcontractors.  If you have one in your town, you might call them and ask if they are bringing illegal alien “children” as an #ActOfLove to your community.  See our May 28th post about LIRS lobbying campaign for the alien minors.  They call it #ActOfLove (if you are on twitter join the fun there!).

    If some “concerned citizens” would drop into these “refugee centres” and have a look around,….(I did with SW-Key in 2007) we could expose their operations before they drop “Family Reunification” on us.

    Southwest Key ( http://www.swkey.org/programs/shelters ) has been housing and re-settling “unaccompanied children” for many years

    *”Southwest Key has been the largest provider of services to unaccompanied children in the United States for many years. Our programs encourage the development of personal and academic skills while facilitating permanency for these refugees.” *

    Southwest Key also “integrates” thousands of Chinese, Arab and Africans who flood our borders with little publicity or interest from the Mainstream Media.

    This “Immigration Crisis” is a vulgar charade played out with the complicity of our Media and corrupt politicians.

    Send them back before “Family Re-Unification” is decreed by the courts or executive order.
