Dear Editor:

Re: the Homeless Shelter Surprise or the Pan Am Hotel on Queens Blvd. conversion to a homeless shelter (6/12/14).

At an unscripted “open mike” moment, President Obama was overheard telling then-President Medvedev of Russia to tell Vladimir Putin that when he was re-elected he would able to be more flexible. True. Obama, phone and pen in hand, has become very flexible. We’ve had …

The IRS politicized, Benghazi, a mountain of corruption and cover-up, the horrible mistreatment of veterans at government-run hospitals (precursors of Obamacare) exposed, and a defecting American soldier traded for five Taliban terrorist commanders at Gitmo. Thank heavens Obama takes vacations.

Now, because Obama gave a free pass to the children of illegal aliens, the latest “progressive” bomb to hit the American public is the arrival at the Texas border of 50,000 unaccompanied children again from Central America. Eric Holder, who before becoming attorney general worked as a lawyer defending Muslim terrorists, immediately sent 100 lawyers down to Texas to make sure the ‘children’ were not being abused.

Tent cities were surreptitiously set up deep inside the United States, where America’s new hope for the future (since the European immigrants made such a botch of it), Central America’s “Dreamers,” are now being taught English and being clothed, fed and educated. Who’s paying for all this? Why … you are.

When the next 50,000 arrive, where will the present 50,000 go to live? Since Queens has the largest population of Central Americans in the United States, no doubt, here.

Pan Am’s conversion to a homeless shelter may have come down to a surprise, but the waves of refugees, hotel conversions and legalized basement apartments coming down the pike shouldn’t be. Our borders are open. “Dreamers” should soon feel very at home here. It’ll be just like Honduras and Guatemala, but with television.
