Pastor tells Fox News that immigrant detention center is okay because kids don't complain

Source: thinkprogress



Fox & Friends hosted Pastor Russell Black of Latin Impact Ministries to dismiss any concerns about for-profit Homestead detention facility.

The largely unregulated Homestead detention center near Miami, Florida, has been under fire for its handling of immigrant children. But Fox News on Friday brought on a local pastor who frequently leads prayer services at the facility to offer a full-throated endorsement of the only for-profit detention center for immigrant children.

Pastor Russell Black, president of Latin Impact Ministries in Homestead, Florida, joined FOX & Friends to debunk concerns raised by journalists and public officials about the corporate-owned Homestead where thousands of migrant kids are being kept.

...........................

“As I see the print media, the politicians, make comments and allegations about the shelter, it blows me away that they don’t have the correct picture at all,” Black observed. “Many of us have been working there, volunteering for the last four years. We’ve been privileged to be able to conduct religious services there every Saturday morning. And literally thousands of children have passed through our services. And lives have been changed.”


Black dismissed “the allegations that we have heard many times” that kids are there for “indefinitely, for long periods of time,” because he has observed children who are, “as quickly as [possible] relocated to a safe family environment and sometimes it’s very quick.” He did concede that sometime it “takes longer time based on their individual circumstances,” but said he hoped his own children would be so lucky if they ever have to be stuck in an immigration detention facility. According to an NPR report in February, advocates said the average time children spent at the Homestead was 67 days.........................

21. Maybe because the rash these last few years of RW evangelical pedophiles? ...

Especially missionaries in third world nations.

My family has had numerous missionaries particularly to New Guinea and I am a life long Lutheran, so I am not speaking from an anti religious bias.

You seem to have missed credible reports of sexual assault and group punishments for speaking up and out.

25. ++My exact same thought while reading the link. Listed as a volunteer so never I guess

Just the first sentence of the article already pissed me off...
“The largely unregulated Homestead detention center near Miami, Florida, has been under fire for its handling of immigrant children”

Then it ends by stating Black was identified by Fox News as a “volunteer” at the facilities
the kids don’t complain

2. Sure, some die, some are "lost" in the system...but it's A-OK!!

...because they don't complain!! At least, they don't IF THEY KNOW WHAT'S GOOD FOR THEM.

Lives have been changed, all right.

3. Many pederast preachers will be happy to hear this rationalization because the kids they molest are

Many pederast preachers will be happy to hear this rationalization because the kids they molest are too afraid to complain.

So it must be ok.

8. If you don't speak Spanish

Of course you don't hear complaints!

I am so tired of clergy abuse of the young.

They have no basis to understand religious concepts much ancient world history.

I know I didn't.

Just more child abuse!

24. Very serious surgery, they took a lot of parts including some good ones ...

just in case. My plumbing has been rearranged. Surgery was June 19th and I've been home since the 1st.

Just starting to feel good, but we've had some glitches, minor and dealing with bags. My wife is a saint and a true blessing. I suspect she thinks I have some pile of money hidden somewhere, but she treats me really well.

Good to see you, I've been sort of hit and missing it looking for my friends. Glad you caught me!
