Comment: There's too many problems in Dayton that need to be addressed before we take on these children from Huber Heights, OH by Nicole
Comment: Let's take care of our own needy children, veterans, and others in the Miami Valley before opening our doors to illegal aliens. from Dayton, OH by Kate
Comment: Absolutely NOT!! We have to many children here that needs are help!! America needs to take care of there own before we continue helping all of these immigrants!! This is ridiculous!! from Ohio by Nikki
Comment: Absolutely not. We have hundreds of homeless veterans and American citizens in shelters that we should be taking care of first! from Kettering, OH by Carol
Comment: As everyone knows, we have our own right here in the Miami Valley that we cannot take care of... from Carlisle, Ohio by Tonia
Comment: We have enough issues here in our own state. We have homeless, and hungry people here we need to take care of. Plus they have broken the law by coming here illegally. from Xenia, OH by Angie
Comment: we have enough here already from eaton, ohio by robert
Comment: I have mixed feelings on this subject. I guess it's according to how old the child is. If they are close to 18, I say no. If they are small, they need somewhere to stay and no child should be without a place to live. from Brookville OH by Terry
Comment: This will only further empower the movement to cross the boarder. This country has to stop all negotiations with illegals and terrorists. US Army Soldier from Dayton, ohio
Comment: Dayton has enough of its own issues to resolve. Adding unemployed young illegal aliens is not the same Mayor Gary Lietzell's plan to invite productive immigrants who might have added to our economy. from Springboro Montg Co. OH by Donald
Comment: Their own parents are responsible for the child(s)and his/her welfare. NOT THE US WELFARE SYSTEM!! from Beavercreek, OH by Celeste
Comment: We should provide the necessities until they are returned to their homeland. They are illegal aliens not immigrants from Dayton by Sue
Comment: From a newly retired Ohio public school teacher...any questions from Dayton , Ohio by Victoria
Comment: Because they are children, and it's the right thing to do. from Piqua, Ohio by Tammy
Comment: No Way!!!!!!!!!!!! from West Milton by Jill
Comment: Yes, and they should all stay at Nan Whaleys house !!! from Dayton, Ohio by Rhine Mclin
Comment: What does public opinion have to do with disregarding or ignoring the RULE OF LAW?\ What next? Throw grandma and grandpa out of the family farm-house (because it has 5 bedrooms and they don't need that), by POPULAR DECISION and...let's say...give that space to people who are criminally trespassing here? What the HECK is America thinking??? from Wapakoneta, OH by Matt
Comment: Helllllll no! from Troy Oh by Jeff
Comment: I'd take them in so that I could collect welfare on them. from Xenia, Ohio by H. Keith Devers
Comment: It's obvious that we can't even feed our own! Compassion is nice, but, C'mon! from Dayton, OH by Bob
Comment: Why do the Democrats keep calling illegal aliens "immigrants"?!!! The reason is obvious to the most casual observer. from Dayton, OH by Evan
Comment: Let Nan Whaley take in at least 2 children and care for them out of her personal finances. Then others may follow. from New Carlisle, OH by David
Comment: Dayton has enough problems and financial difficulties to deal with from dayton by Raymond
Comment: So we are the only country on this earth to help these people? from Tipp City by Denny
Comment: From the pictures I've seen, some of the "children" are obviously adults. And without voter ID, they are free to vote. Is this the plan? from Dayton, Ohio by Paul
Comment: We are a nation of immigrants and should be open to children are subjected to prostitution, child labor,etc. The people wawanting to kick them out are the same folks who want to protect a zygote. from Centerville, Ohio by Mike
Comment: NO! NO! NO! We are taxed way too much now for the little we get in return. Will she have them stay in her house and she pay for everything for their health and well being? And we've learned these past 6 years when the government makes a promise, it's a guarantee they're lying. from Vandalia OH by Margorie
Comment: There are people in Dayton that are unemployed and are at poverty level. Why would we bring more people and make it worse? Especially illegal immigrants! from Huber Heights, Ohio by Dana
Comment: Dayton's mayor should worry about fixing the problems at home in Dayton, not worrying about towing the proverbial democratic line... from Avondale, AZ by Garrett
Comment: No. Children or not, illegals are illegals; which means criminals. Enforce the laws and send them back. from Xenia by Cristian
Comment: I think it would be great if the United States could afford to take care of all children, but I think we should take care of the children of the United States before we take on other country's children. from Ohio by Cheryl
Comment: Why the mayor would call for this is beyond stupid. Where is the money going to come from? Now, if churches or charities (even individuals) want to sponsor someone, I have no problem with that. However, just busing illegal aliens into our community when we don't have the resources is ridiculous. from Miami Township, Ohio by Dave
Comment: Dayton has children of its own that go hungry. Let's feed and care for our own! from West Alexandria by Debbie
Comment: These kids are here Illegally and should be sent home. from Fairborn by Dave
Comment: She offered to house illegal immigrants in our city. Which word immediately jumps out at you? from Dayton Ohio by Jeff
Comment: First off I do feel for these children, but we have enough people in our Country including Military who are struggling to make ends meet. We can't even take care of our own. These kids may have diseases they've carried in here and some may already be in the MS13 gang. I don't want that in my backyard. from Ohio by Marie
Comment: There is enough unrest in Dayton now. from Troy/Ohio by Sandy
Comment: I'm wandering if mayor Whaley is at all in touch with the wants of her constituents. from Daugherty by Randy
Comment: We should send them back from Dayton by Jane
Comment: It sends the wrong message they need to be returned asap if its as hard to get here as they claim and are returned as fast as they arrive they will stop coming. from Ohio by Rick
Comment: Although I am empathetic for any child, our government was originally founded for one purpose and only one... to protect our borers. To date, they do everything BUT that. I would love to see a true patriot in the white house, no matter what the party. from Miamisburg OH by Karen
Comment: is she willing to feed and clothe them, or is she gonna gripe about it later, after the money has been spent to do this ,if it happens from Dayton ohio by Toni
Comment: Send them back home to their parents. They're using their children to gain legal access. This is not our problem. Whaley needs to focus on our issues. from Vandalia/OH by Tom
Comment: Send them all back and take care of our own! from lewisburg ohio by susi
Comment: I say everybody that voted yes they should take them to their house and they can cloth feed and house them.If they are not willing to pony up their personal money to support them then send them to all the politicians who a whining about how we need to take care of them.They are criminals for crossing the border illegally.So they need to be treated like criminals from used to be America by Silence Dogood
Comment: we should worry about our own Americans first from huber heights by stephanie
Comment: looks like Obama does't care but we the poeple should use our boarder controls much more to keep them out from dayton by stephanie
Comment: we as a community don't take care of our own kids. violating our laws should never be justified or tolerated. from dayton ohio by ron
Comment: We have a lot of issues that need to be addressed before we can take care of new problems. If we can identify places to house immigrants why can't,l we help our homeless from Beavercreek oh by Donna
Comment: We do not have the ability to care for our own children in regards to food, education and health. Why do we want to spread even more problems on our legal citizens? Enough is enough, we can't fix everybody's problems an longer. from Troy, Ohio by Steve

Comment: Just what Dayton needs, another fool in the mayors office. Wasn't McLin enough misguidance? from Huber Heights, Ohio by Carol Ann
Comment: No! We have children here that need help. I wish the government would pay for my housing, healthcare and food.

Comment: we have enough to worry about,just say no to any non amercan from springfield,ono by mike
Comment: We don't have money for the people who live here now, let alone illegal immigrants. from Huber Heights, Oh by Traci
Comment: Absolutely not! Nan Whaley was elected to work and improve current economic and social challenges facing Dayton.

Comment: Absolutely NOT...who is going to support them? Are they healthy? Why would we do that when we cannot even take care of all the unemployed in Dayton ?!! from Dayton, OH by Michael
