Gloversville Neighborhood Improvement Corp seems to be getting a lot of positive press lately. Could there be a city manager in that organization?

“Absolutely, I would almost guarantee that there are people that have been released that are sick and that are now in American society,” said Moran. So far, along the southern border there have been more than 60,000 unaccompanied minors that have come across the border, and 75 percent of them are coming from places other than Mexico. Moran calls this a “failure of policy.” He says the government continues to release them into society in hopes that they will return for their hearing, and a majority don’t.

Interesting question Ishouldknow. It would seem that if the village and town are consolidating services and saving money, wouldn't taxes for both go down??

If you're just stating 'facts' adkkev then why did you omit the fact that the Law you cited was meant to deter Child Trafficking for the sex trade? It was never intended to allow for an invasion of 'unaccompanied' children. Besides, if their 'poor' parents are sending their children to America, where are 'poor' parents getting the 3 to 5 thousand $$ to pay to get them here??? This is a LOT of children and a LOT of money in these 'poor' Countries changing hands. Those 'parents' are guilty of illegally trafficking their own children and American taxpayers are not responsible for the outcome.

ToT: "HHS is required by law to take custody and provide care for unaccompanied foreign children who illegally enter the United States from countries that do not border the United States. The law — known as the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008 — allows for the expedited deportation of most child migrants from Mexico and Canada when they are apprehended at the border. But there is a complex resettlement process for other children. These children — who are mostly from Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras — are first held at Border Patrol facilities for a maximum of 72 hours for screening. After that, the DHS must hand them over to the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) for placement under its Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) program. Options may include foster care". Not defending anyone on this issue, just stating FACTS.

If northville-northampton is saving all this money, then why did the village taxes still go up! Just wait till you see what your town taxes do. You now pay part of the village police and part of village clerks salary as a confidential secretary!

Cheers to consolidation. Everyone in Fulton County should be looking for shared services and places where we can reduce the government footprint. In Gloversville's discussion of a city manager, this should also be part of the conversation.

As unaccompanied minors continue to illegally cross the Texas-Mexico border, President Obama's Health and Human Services (HHS) has been quietly releasing them onto U.S. soil. A total of 30,340 unaccompanied minors have already been released from federal custody and placed into foster homes, according to HHS' Office of Refugee and Resettlement (ORR). While many migrants have been released in border states like Texas and California, others have been set free in Alaska.

JEERS to president Obama's partisan ways. He and democrats instead of working together to do anything about the border crisis have gone on vacation, shutting down congress and leave Obama to go it alone. Are you ready for his phone and pen to dictate his partisan version of immigration reform? I suspect that you will see what is a regular occurrence for him any moment now. And I am sure that once again it will be just chock full op progressive ideas, take out your wallet as he is going to go spending once again!
