UPDATEâ€” Baptist Child and Family Services Withdraws Bid for Palm Aire Resort
As reported earlier today by Kristinn Taylorâ€¦
The Obama administration has awarded a $50 million contract to a charitable group to buy a Texas resort hotel and transform it in to a 600 bed facility for juvenile illegal aliens.
The beautifulÂ Palm Aire resort and hotelÂ has an indoor Olympic sized pool and an outdoor pool. Â Free Wi-Fi and cable TVÂ are included in the simply decorated guest rooms.
The Palm Aire Hotel and Suites is set to be sold to Baptist Child & Family Services (BCFS) operating under a federal contract, pending local government approval, according to reports from Weslaco, Texas where the hotel is located. Weslaco is a few miles north of the Rio Grande in Hidalgo County.
The resort hotel for illegal alien children is reportedly the â€˜first in the nationâ€™.
Due to backlash the charity received after the story was posted on The Drudge Report, Baptist Child and Family Services withdrew itâ€™s bid for the Palm Aire Resort.
The charity said it was disappointed and that the resort would have been perfect for the illegal alien children.
