Corbett Reluctant to Allow Immigrant Children into Pennsylvania

Governor-Tom-CorbettThe Holy Family Institute in Emsworth, Allegheny County, has offered to take care of some of the child immigrants from Central America, but Gov. Tom Corbett is worried about the spread of disease.

In addition to his health concerns, Corbett believes that the children who crossed the border illegally must be returned to their native countries.

“We feel for these children that they are fleeing their countries. We want to make sure they are taken care of and returned to their countries. But we also are concerned about their health and what they may cause as far as health issues in the state of Pennsylvania,” Corbett said in a statement.

“From my standpoint, where they are coming in, there are certainly enough military bases in Texas and Arizona that the federal government could at least house them there temporarily to make sure before they send them to any state that their health conditions are okay for that,” he continued. “That they’ve had all their immunizations and so forth because we have a strong concern on that. From a humanitarian standpoint you want to make sure these kids get taken care of but they need to be returned to their country of origin.”

Though Pennsylvania is many miles from the U.S.-Mexican border, Corbett is uneasy about the immigrants possible effect on the commonwealth.

“Measles is one that comes to mind very quickly and what other diseases that they may or may not have,” Corbett explained. “We can not be a country that just takes everything that comes here without at least looking into the background of this. And again this is one where the federal government hasn’t even talked to the states about ‘Can we send them into your state?’”

The Holy Family Institute in Emsworth, which is run by Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth, volunteered to temporarily host a portion of the immigrant children.

David Zubik, the bishop of Pittsburgh, has released a statement regarding the Central American kids.

“There have been questions as to why Catholics are involved,” Zubik said. “The Catholic Church responds to humanitarian crises here at home and all across the world because we are pro-life. Being pro-life requires we protect and care for vulnerable persons from conception to natural death. It has been reported that some of these children are fleeing violence. The current law requires that they receive a hearing to determine if in fact they are refugees fleeing grave danger.”

“Whether they are traveling because of poverty, or violence, or with the hope of reuniting with relatives on the other side of the border, followers of Jesus are called to protect these children and help them because they are very vulnerable and defenseless against any abuse or misfortune.”

The national discourse over what to do with the Central American illegal immigrant children has apparently spread to Pennsylvania. Bishop Zubik is ready to welcome the immigrant kids; Gov. Corbett, meanwhile, is nervous about allowing the the Central American children into the commonwealth.

  1. It took Isaac 24 hours and a whole lot of words to confirm what I said yesterday: He has no solution and is perfectly fine with children making the dangerous trip north. He’s also too blindly self righteous to see how dispassionate that position is. What a hypocrite.

  2. @ Isaac L.:

    Your VERY broad-brush attack on allegedly broad-brush comments is unmoored to anything specific that I’ve written; thus, I’ll dummy-down the 10-point summary elucidated infra.

    DD challenged my assessment of the quality of Guzzardi’s Petitions without having specified where any alleged-error had any potential impact on the outcome; indeed, he was tossed from the ballot due to absence of filing his financials with the Ethics Commission [despite the fact that they were instantly on-line after having been uploaded by the DoS]. My instant-conclusion [provided after reviewing only publicly-available info via an all-nighter] correctly predicted the fact that a challenge to these four counties [Guzzardi had to win only two, but won all four] would yield totals [in any one of them] that would dip below the 100-vote threshold]; the Commonwealth Court analysis validated my conclusions and he failed to retrace any steps that would allow any reasonable person to conclude otherwise. DD also challenged Guzzardi’s campaign-style, claiming he hadn’t appeared in traditional fora [such as providing a speech to a bunch of Republicans], despite his having been shunned by the Party [for obvious reasons].

    DD also eschewed issuing any critique of BHO [including recognition of the potential for any item in his burgeoning Scandal-Sheet to be viewed as legit], subsequently confessing fealty for Elizabeth Warren’s arguably-Nazi policy-list. This fact emerged when he admittedly failed to exercise his penchant to predict a winner in the Dem-primary in the 13th, lest he antagonize a potential-winner.

    Notwithstanding his anecdotal narratives, I documented the claim that premiums will soon rise dramatically within ObamaDon’tCare, yielding a major explanation for the sluggish economy; I also noted that the Senate has failed to consider many jobs-bills passed by the House [not even to engage with those with which the Dems might concur, in part].

    Finally, after having noted the impact of the subprime mortgage issue on the ’08 economic-crisis [dating back to Carter], we dipped into history to discuss Coolidge [and he couldn’t cite a specific action that led to the ’29 crash] and Rand [and he couldn’t cite a specific concern with her endorsement of limited-government].

    Thus, if you would care to pick-up on any of these arguments [in DD’s stead], I’ll engage accordingly; otherwise, I’ll conclude that y’all didn’t “lay a glove” on anything I wrote, and DD’s hypocrisy will have been exposed and not denied.

  3. Unsanctioned R – you paint with an awfully broad brush. Your penchant for straw men stereotypes is disappointing and intellectually lazy but rather illustrative. I guess it’s understandable, though – nuance is a lot harder than knee-jerk tribalism and the comforting desire to divide the world into black and white, yes or no, right or wrong, and that’s rather pervasive in the human condition. For as much as I hear about this country and its supposed Judeo-Christian values, I see an awful lack of empathy among her citizens and no understanding of what privileges we enjoy or even what privilege is (hint: it’s not a dog whistle for white guilt).

  4. @ DD:

    In further elaboration regarding point #6 which references ObamaDon’tCare, note the aggregated impact of these headlines from Drudge:

    MORE OBAMACARE CONFUSION:
    Court rules subsidies illegal…
    UPDATE: Appeals court rejects…
    ‘Potentially crippling blow’…
    ‘Massive setback’…
    Premiums poised to spike for millions…
    Obama appointed judges to review…
    PAPER: ‘Wording glitch’…
    LAW PROF: ‘I wouldn’t bet’ on law’s survival…

  5. If, indeed, this nationalizes the gubernatorial race, it may help Corbett; even the WaPo has recognized the fact that the border crisis has drastically shifted the immigration debate.

  6. For the individual who doesn’t want to become lost in the details of the fencing-match between DD and myself, just note the following:

    1. Guzzardi’s Petitions. I claimed that you have failed to demonstrate that my initial data-dump [provided after reviewing only publicly-available info via an all-nighter] incorrectly predicted the fact that a challenge to these four counties would yield totals [in any one of them] that would dip below the 100-vote threshold]; the Commonwealth Court analysis validated my conclusions and you failed to retrace any steps that would allow any reasonable person to conclude otherwise.

    2. Guzzardi campaigned. You cannot possibly know enough to conclude that whatever he had done had been “minimal.”

    3. Critiquing BHO. Your confessional [adoring Elizabeth Warren’s arguably-Nazi policy-list] serves to corroborate my premise.

    h-warrens-list-for-progressives-is-eerily-similar-of-hitlers-nazi-list/

    4. BHO’s Scandal-Sheet. Explain-away why info regarding these IRS-crashes had been withheld from Congress until the last-minute; why BHO hid during 9/11/2012 [allegedly having prompted Jarrett to issue the stand-down order to Ham] and why Hillary conjured the videotape-deceit; why BHO’s minions [e.g., Crapper] lied about the NSA-programs]….

    5. Prediction Predilection. You were so reticent to issue any meaningful critique of any Dem that you punted.

    6. Health Premiums. People are en-masse [per insurer data] getting far less while paying far more [deductibles, co-pays, denials].

    7. CC’s conservatism. Again, you are [predictaby, as are most libs … when cornered] broad-brush instead of exerting energies to define the specific action by CC that led to the crash.

    8. Liberalized Mortgages. You wander into the weeds [and again lapse into detailing an irrelevant individual-anecdote] instead of recognizing that such mortgages shouldn’t have been written in the first place, yet they were because of the federally-generated pressures.

    9. Sluggish Economy. Each bill not even addressed [even modified] by the Senate after having passed the House, for Reid prefers that a “do-nothing” conclusion be drawn by voters regarding the entire Congress, lest the true culprit [his blockage] be fingered.

    10. Ayn Rand. Rand advocates for the individual over the collective; you would probably benefit from viewing films of “Atlas Shrugged” and/or Dinesh D’Souza’s “America.”

  7. @ DD [and others]:

    DD, you articulated a strange reason for interrupting efforts to help you to clarify your prior [faulty] assertions, namely, that this page had been relegated to “page 2” @ PoliticsPa and, thus, you wouldn’t keep monitoring it; notwithstanding the fact that it remains on “page 1” of those focused on the Gubernatorial race, as a public-service, I will summarize the status of our prior fencing-match, subject of course to your anticipated critique [conveying this info in lieu of accepting your invitation to “get the last word in”].

    s-re-election-odds/59376/

    {The format, here, is restating what I had most-recently written, followed by DD’s reaction thereto, ending with my synthesis.}

    1. Guzzardi’s Petitions. If you make an assertions, it is up to you to document it; it’s not up to me to “prove a negative.”

    1) No. You claimed I got it all wrong, when it fact I got some right. So, burden’s on you.

    No, I claimed that you have failed to demonstrate that my initial data-dump [provided after reviewing only publicly-available info via an all-nighter] incorrectly predicted the fact that a challenge to these four counties would yield totals [in any one of them] that would dip below the 100-vote threshold]; the Commonwealth Court analysis validated my conclusions and you failed to retrace any steps that would allow any reasonable person to conclude otherwise.

    2. Guzzardi campaigned. You may critique what and how, but you can’t deny he devoted energies to this effort.

    2) He devoted such minimal effort that it’s a stretch to call it “campaigning”. Jo Ellen Litz running in the Dem primary did 100 times as much campaigning as Guzzardi.

    Anecdotal comparisons are tangential, and you cannot possibly know enough to conclude that whatever he had done had been “minimal.”

    3. Critiquing BHO. You proved my point by never deviating from Dem talking-points; so much for the independent-mind.

    3) I agree with the sort of liberalism espoused by people like Elizabeth Warren. I came to my beliefs independently and thus I support/prefer candidates who have similar ones. It’s not talking points.

    Your confessional serves to corroborate my premise; incidentally, after noting “Elizabeth Warren’s ’11 commandments of progressivism’,” you may wish to note that they carry an eerily similarity to Hitler’s Nazi List.

    4. BHO’s Scandal-Sheet. You claim there have been no new scandals, and you claim IRS-scrutiny was bipartisan; you ignore the upcoming mandate that the IRS explain how LL’s ‘puter crashed, etc., and you ignore the quotes that clearly targeted conservatives.

    4) The IRS and a lot of government agencies have old crappy computer systems that fail on a regular basis. This is neither new nor shocking nor proof of a conspiracy. (Romney made a point of buying computers from his administration so no one could read the hard drives. That’s more suspicious.)

    Then explain-away why info regarding these crashes had been withheld from Congress until the last-minute; why BHO hid during 9/11/2012 [allegedly having prompted Jarrett to issue the stand-down order to Ham] and why Hillary conjured the videotape-deceit; why BHO’s minions [e.g., Crapper] lied about the NSA-programs]….

    5. Prediction Predilection. You just can’t get yourself to critique a fellow-Dem; this is not surprising among reflex-libs. {I restore 100 points from my score, subtract 100 from yours, and provide myself 1000 bonus-points for bothering to persevere in the face of bald-faced deceit and misrepresentation.}

    5) How is not making or not making a prediction a critique?

    You were so reticent to issue any meaningful critique of any Dem that you punted.

    6. Health Premiums. The final numbers won’t be released for ~2 months, but the preliminaries for ’14 are damning, as illustrated by ’13 data [enhanced by mandates, no matter how lofty the intent].

    6) I’ve got my “final” numbers for 2014 (premium statements) and I’m paying less than last year (and 20% to 30% less than I was 3 years ago). And with better coverage. I was stuck on my old plan, paying higher premiums, because I was concerned that if I switched insurance, and went to a doctor, that any new problem would be falsely labeled “pre-existing” condition, as an excuse to drop insurance. Once the ACA prevented companies from dropping coverage for that, I was able to switch and save thousands a year.

    Again, notwithstanding your anecdote, people are en-masse [per insurer data] getting far less while paying far more [deductibles, co-pays, denials].

    7. CC’s conservatism. You fail to link small government with Stock-Crash…because you can’t.

    7) The link is direct: the “small” government philosophy doesn’t regulate or consider involving itself in regulating the economy. This laissez-faire attitude is the core of small government thinking and the direct cause of the stock market crash. You can’t praise CC for implementing small government without taking the blame for the subsequent economic collapse that resulted from it. Under FDR strong regulation was put in place, which stood for about 70 years. Shortly after the regulation was gutted, we had another crash due to “small government” laissez-faire thinking. It’s easy to connect the dots here. There are only two.

    Again, you are [predictaby, as are most libs … when cornered] broad-brush instead of exerting energies to define the specific action by CC that led to the crash.

    8. Liberalized Mortgages. These indeed started under Carter and flourished under Clinton; they were perpetuated under Dems like Barney, despite efforts by Bush to inject sanity.

    8) The problem with the mortgages were that the banks were scamming customers with higher than necessary interest rate schemes. So, it is NOT that the banks were pushed to give out loans to unqualified people, but rather that they gave out variable rate loans, instead of fixed ones, while assuring (lying) to customers that the rates would never exceed 4% to 5% percent. Then they jacked up the rates, doubling or tripling the monthly mortgage payments to people who were able to pay the original mortgage payments. It was a bait-and-switch scheme by the banks. They deliberately mislead home buyers into plans they couldn’t afford.
    Prior to the collapse, I was looking for a house, in the $200K range. The bank loan officer tried to determine the most I could afford each month, and talk me into going for a $300K house and bigger mortgage. They were causing a bubble by “pricing” houses based on what people could afford in monthly mortgage payments, and jacking up the loan amounts. But, any increase in the interest rates would put people in default, as the banks were being irresponsible in their lending practices by overextending the borrowers.
    Also, they were talking advantage of people by quoting non-competitive prices to the poor and less educated that they were supposed to be helping get a home THAT THEY COULD AFFORD. Instead, they took advantage of them and manipulated the system.
    Later, major banks FORGED and back dated mortgage agreements that they didn’t actually possess to foreclose on homeowners.

    You wander into the weeds [and again lapse into detailing an irrelevant individual-anecdote] instead of recognizing that such mortgages shouldn’t have been written in the first place, yet they were because of the federally-generated pressures.

    9. Sluggish Economy. The R’s in the House have passed many jobs-bills that have been stalled in the Senate by Reid; some feel he is reluctant to burden any of his colleagues with a vote that could injure their chances in the midterms, thereby again placing party-politics over the welfare of the country.

    9) The so-called jobs bills by the House, were all filled with non-jobs poison pills. Here is an analysis from 2012 about the bills up to that point that debunks your claim that these were acceptable job creation bills that the Senate should have take up:
    crooksandliars.com/karoli/gops-claim-house-passed-30-jobs-bills-bogus

    Your hyperlink proves my point, for each entity was not even addressed [even modified] after having passed the House, for Reid prefers that a “do-nothing” conclusion be drawn by voters regarding the entire Congress, lest the true culprit [his blockage] be fingered.

    10. Ayn Rand is an intellectual pillar that the right-wing admires on economic theory, and other independent thinkers respect.

    10) Ayn Rand is not a “intellectual pillar” to anyone with an intellect. (So, I guess she can be a pillar to you.) In Atlas Shrugged, she advocates for essentially the gold standard. Which is simply naive and foolish in modern economics (though many naive and foolish people still like it).

    Rand advocates for the individual over the collective; you would probably benefit from viewing films of “Atlas Shrugged” and/or Dinesh D’Souza’s “America.”

  8. They have no solutions. Children on death trains is just collateral damage to liberals.

  9. Pam explained it Isaac. Apparently, Franklin’s tradition is to piss on your golden door.

    Until there’s a credible ebb in the perception of “permisos,” plan on seeing more children dying to get here.

    What’s your plan to stop kids born in Central America today from being sent with a coyote in 10 years?

  10. Folks who want open borders turn Christians who don’t want to see children raped on Death Trains into “Teabagging Extremists,” people who run Central American charities into “Xenophobes,” and parents of adopted immigrant children into, “Racists.”

    From my perspective, I see where the real hate is coming from. Blind hate. It’s not suitable for debate but meant to shut people up.

  11. Ill state it here again. What governor Corbett said about these refugees was racist, especially when actual news organizations have reported that these most likely have had all of their appropriate vaccinations. Those countries have higher vaccination rates than we do. Plus, Ithink someone brought up the issue of “lice.” Is there a difference if a child in a rural school has lice compared to the children at the border? NO. If you think that these kids are diseased and would cause a pandemic or epidemic in the United States you are racist, ignorant or constantly watching Fox News.

  12. Unsanctioned R – would you care to explain how? I take it from your comment that you have never read Franklin’s essay “Observations Concerning the Increase of Mankind, Peopling of Countries, etc.”. In it, he declares the only true white people to be the English and their Saxon ancestors, whereas the Germans were considered to be “swarthy” or dark skinned. I would not place Franklin with the likes of Strom Thurmond and his views certainly do not diminish his contributions to this Commonwealth and country, but it’s a poignant reminder that Germans were once looked upon the same way that Latino immigrants are today. Italians, Irish, Eastern Europeans, etc. too were all treated rather poorly and people claimed that they didn’t want to assimilate or learn the language, that they were bringing diseases, that they were stealing jobs, and that they could never truly be American.

    Well, the great American melting pot being what it is, the things we associate with American-ness are mostly foreign in origin: Baseball (British), Football (British), Hot Dogs (German), Hamburgers (German), French Fries (Belgium or France), Potato Salad (German), Apple Pie (British), etc. Really, the only truly American sports are probably Basketball and Lacrosse.

    My ancestors came here to escape persecution in their homeland – they were seeking asylum from violence and oppression. These children are doing the same thing.

  13. This is the same rhetoric that all immigrants to the US have heard for generations. The Irish were compared to primates, the Jews were refused sanctuary here pre-WWII when humanitarian ships left Nazi Germany, Cubans, Vietnamese, now Central Americans. We are afraid of “the other” and always have been. It’s ironic that the rate of vaccination in the US is at an all-time low because of the anti-vax crowd, but that is ignored in the political BS that’s flying around.

  14. WASPs or half-white, half-black like his grandson you mean, right? He’d let those half breeds in too you think? I mean that’s the only rational conclusion–he must be as racist as we can possibly paint him.

    Sid, What’s your solution to stopping the child rapes on the “Death Train?”

  15. Sean Kitchen–ha! Don’t pay him any mind Kelly. His name should only bring laughter to the mind. Read his elementary level work on that internet propoganda machine that he tries to pass off as journalism. Ultimately that website, and his work, expose the fact that Universities like Kutztown should be shut down for good — because they are obviously failing when it comes to producing quality graduates. HA, sean kitchen, ha ha ha.

  16. Isaac doesn’t even realize he contradicted his whole argument by calling Ben Franklin a racist.

  17. Isaac, while I agree with your sentiments regarding “neo-nativists,” that “bring us your tired” line has never in our history been construed to mean that we have no borders or orderly and lawful processes for immigration.

  18. Give me your tired, your poor,
    Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
    The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
    Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door!

    (Unless, of course, your skin is brown.) Then you can bugger off because terrorism, Islamnazisharialaw, marxistfascistsocialism, diseases, and other scary things we made up that totally do not make us racist, because, see, we didn’t actually say because of your skin. I will completely ignore the fact that their vaccination rates are comparable to ours (in fact, Mexico’s are better…) because that is an inconvenient truth that conflicts with my get-out-of-xenophobia free card.

    My family has been living and working this land for three centuries – before it was even a country – and we spoke German until the 20th century. Ben Franklin said we weren’t white, were stealing jobs, and were ruining the country. You hypocritical, short-memoried neo-nativists can go back to Europe or wherever it is your poor, starving families came from.

  19. guvenore corbitt is doin the write think by saying no outsiders aloud into penna. he has a grankid who aint a mercan citzen so he know it dangerous to let outsidrs into penna and aint gonna let happen wile hes charge.

  20. CDC has activated its Emergency Operations Center to Level 3, which means it is on 24-hour alert to better coordinate and track their programs in support of what HHS is calling the “urgent humanitarian situation of unaccompanied children along the southwest border.” Calling it a crisis and working to contain it are two different things. It is clear that the CDC needs to be more involved immediately to help identify, treat and contain emerging diseases. Putting a cone of secrecy around the health concerns of these children neither helps those who are sick nor those who are placed at risk. Nobody will make the mistake of calling Tom Corbett a humanitarian when it comes to these children.

  21. There’s no vaccine for lice or scabies.

    Open borders is not an option post 9-11.

    Put the national guard on the border and use Obama diplomacy to get Mexico to do their part. No cross, no amnesty. The message back home will be, “Don’t bother getting on the Death Train.” What we’re doing now is encouraging an unending stream of children to make a dangerous trip into the U.S. where they’ll be given a court date 6 months to 3 years away, which they may or may not show up to. Once they’re caught they have anchor babies. This isn’t rocket science, but you really have to wonder what the motivations are of our President who refuses to temporarily militarize the border to stop the bleeding. For the sake of future children getting raped and trafficked coming North, we’ve got to do something. Open borders are not an option post 9-11.

  22. What this article fails to mention is that these children come from countries that have higher vaccination rates than the US. This has been reported by anyone not named fox news or politics pa. These kids also don’t have ebola, which is an African born country, so your argument about not allowing these kids in the US is ignorant or racist rhetoric coming from conservative republicans who use this to fearmonger

  23. Yeah Sean, I saw your article claiming Corbett is a racist. And now I’m a racist too, apparently. It’s pretty easy to not come up with a valid argument or any sort of sound reasoning why these kids SHOULD be let in when you can just call everyone a racist and be done with it.

  24. Folks who want open borders turn Christians who don’t want to see children raped on Death Trains into “Teabagging Extremists,” people who run Central American charities into “Xenophobes,” and parents of adopted immigrant children into, “Racists.”

    From my perspective, I see where the real hate is coming from. Blind hate. It’s not suitable for debate but meant to shut people up.

  25. Measles outbreaks in this country are caused by American citizens who believe a study, since retracted by the Lancet and disproved by numerous other studies, that the MMR vaccine causes autism and who so do not vaccinate their children. Measles outbreaks are not caused by unvaccinated immigrant children and can easily be prevented by vaccinating the undocumented children who come to Pennsylvania.

    Perhaps Governor Corbett would also have prevented African Americans from using his bathroom in the 1950s because they were supposed to spread diseases also? As I recall, that was the argument for having separate bathrooms under the Jim Crow laws.

  26. Yes, “Observer”, because diseases that we’ve spent years trying to eliminate and could take over our state and endanger our children are the same thing as “cooties”.

    Seriously? You can’t even argue that.

  27. Let’s see: These kids could be dangerous because maybe they haven’t had their shots and other preventive care, but Obamacare expansion, which would give uninsured PA residents preventive care, is bad.
    Corbett can’t have it both ways. And he should stop listening to ALEC.

  28. Corbett once again gives DEMS more fuel to defeat him. He continually panders to the red-neck tea party base, ignorant of the fact that those provide a very small part of PA. He is now turning off the Catholic Church with his intolerant views on assisting the poor and the needy. I guess he will be erecting border check points? This is now injecting into the PA congressional races in PA the idea of humanitarian aid crisis and the GOP Congress being against that and the GOP Congress failing to act on immigration reform which is bad news for Fitz, Costello, Meehan…in some of those districts there is a significant Latino population that will not take kindly to the Gov’s words and will hold the down ballot accountable.

  29. I thought Corbett was a Christian!!!!! Oh never mind. Christians are only Christians before birth!! I keep forgetting that.
    What would Jesus Do???

  30. He must be taking his cues from Democrat Prez candidate and Maryland’s Governor O’Malley.
