Charity in the 21st Century apparently means punishing children for the “sins” of their parents.
The Salvation Army and a charity affiliated with the Houston Fire Department are among those that consider immigration status, asking for birth certificates or Social Security cards for the children.
The point isn’t to punish the children but to ensure that their parents are either citizens, legal immigrants or working to become legal residents, said Lorugene Young, whose Outreach Program Inc. is one of three groups that distribute toys collected by firefighters.
“It’s not our desire to turn anyone down,” she said. “Those kids are not responsible if they are here illegally. It is the parents’ responsibility.”
Why does the Salvation Army care about the immigration status of the recipients of their charity? Apparently only “the right sort” of children deserve toys and food.
This organization of bigots doesn’t deserve anybody’s cash.
