Outgoing Republican Councilman Todd Huff came up with a typical NIMBY response.
"We have enough issues and problems in our own back yard here," Huff said, adding "we don't need to take on other people's problems."
The less-than-generous councilman urged Catholic Charities to "stick with the work [it is doing] here."
Huff's likely successor, Republican Del. Wade Kach, jumped on the "we won't help" bandwagon by parroting the Republican Party line — this is "a federal problem, and they [President Obama and the Democrats] need to solve it."
Baltimore County Republican Del. Pat McDonough had a more extreme suggestion — erect tent cities on the border and deport the kids as soon as possible.
