One such facility contacted is in my home town, the famous Hirsch Coliseum, located on the grounds of the Louisiana State Fair.
|Shreveport's Iconic Hirsch Coliseum is being considered for housing illegal immigrants from Central America.|
"Shreveport is being considered as one of many host cities to help house tens of thousands of unaccompanied young children from Central America flooding over America's borders.
KSLA News 12 has learned the International Association of Fairs and Expos contacted Shreveport's iconic Hirsch Coliseum at the Louisiana State Fairgrounds to see if it could be used as temporary housing.
"Even if we could serve in that capacity right now, let's say it happened tomorrow, we'd only be able to serve for the month of August and maybe halfway into September," said Chris Giordano, general manager of the Louisiana State Fair."
"I was told that someone from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security would be contacting me.When contacted by KSLA about the potential takeover by the government for the purpose of housing illegals, front runner to be next Governor of Louisiana, U.S. Senator David Vitter had this to say:
"It doesn't fit in for Louisiana at all. It's outrageous, we need to solve the problem. The President needs to detain and deport these illegals, not simply move them to Louisiana or anywhere else and house them indefinitely."
"I think it's outrageous that we're housing these folks on a long-term basis, in some cases releasing them into society.Sen.Vitter says his office contacted Homeland Security and asked detailed questions about any plans they had involving Louisiana.
The area is also the home of Barksdale Air Force Base, another prime target of warehousing illegals, only without any community input on the matter.
It pains me deeply that the iconic building where was first uttered the phrase "Elvis has left the building", where Hank Williams Sr. gave one of his last concerts, and where every major music act from the Rolling Stones and Louie Armstrong on down rattled the roof from the 1950's through the 1990's would possibly become a flophouse/outhouse for people the Obama administration are using as pawns in their scam of fundamental change.
