Congressmen Visit Home Sheltering Child Immigrants

READING (AP) – Three GOP Pennsylvania Congressmen who visited a home for troubled children say they would support a spending bill to deal with immigrant children who have overwhelmed border facilities. Congressmen Jim Gerlach, Charlie Dent, and Patrick Meehan visited the Berks County’s Bethany Children’s Home, which has been sheltering some of the children. They say they would support a more modest plan than the $3.7 billion sought by President Obama to help federal agencies deal with the flood of child immigrants entering the U.S. illegally from Central America. Meanwhile, the United Methodist Home for Children in suburban Harrisburg says it is receiving a federal grant to care for some of the children.
