Virginia U.S. Senators Mark Warner and Tim Kaine.

Three organizations — including two in Northern Virginia — have received a combined $8.4 million in federal grants for providing aid to immigrant children.

Sens. Tim Kaine and Mark Warner announced the grant funding on Friday. It will be used to assist unaccompanied minors who fled Central America, including services like temporary shelters and foster care programs.

“These local organizations have stepped up to help children who found themselves here through no fault of their own, and we’re proud to announce this funding that will go towards groups providing shelter and foster care programs for these children in need,” according to a shared statement by Warner and Kaine.

The $8,399,060 in U.S. Department of Health and Human Services grants will be disbursed to the following organizations:

  • The U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants in Arlington will receive $4,361,450;
  • The Youth for Tomorrow – New Life Center in Bristow will receive $2,919,613;
  • The Shenandoah Valley Juvenile Center in Staunton will receive $1,117,997.

Who is feeding and taking care of our American children?

Is it their fault that our elected bleeding heart liberal politicians cut the legs out from under their parents leaving many of them homeless, hungry and at the mercy of living on the city streets throughout our nation?

No sane person would wish harm upon any child. Yet that is exactly what is happening when our politicians routinely sacrifice the well being of American families in order to use foreign refuge children / families to score political points for their own reelection.

Throw away babies, old people and now our own children.
Welcome to the new reformed progressive America.
