Plan to send immigrant kids to NY church draws ire

COMMACK, N.Y. (AP) -- A proposal to house some of the thousands of immigrant children illegally crossing into the United States from Mexico is causing an uproar in one Long Island community.

The Rev. Dennis Walker says Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Commack would be able to pay off debts and create jobs if it took in about 40 children. The federal government would cover the cost of preparing, operating and staffing the facilities.

Exact details of the proposal have yet to be announced, or approved by the church.

But some neighbors are rallying to fight the proposal. Retiree Jerry Baggetta says there are better alternatives for the children.

Walker insists misinformation is fueling community opposition. He says about 40 children, 4 to 17, would be housed at the church.
