Last week I posted a blog on how the Salvation Army and Fire Department in Houston were checking the immigration status of parents who were bringing their children to holiday giveaway programs. The grinches at Salvation Army aren't so grinchy anymore. That is they won't check for citizenship anymore at their toy drives. Last week the Houston Chronicle reported that the Salvation Army and other charities in Houston were asking for documentation to prove citizenship before they'd give out toys.
Later in the week, the Salvation Army and the Houston Fire Department said in a Houston Chronicle story that they won't check children for immigration status anymore. It only took a barrage of bad publicity to get them to change their ways, but hey, at least they came around before Christmas. Click here for the story.
