Davenport Mayor Bill Gluba is saying the Quad Cities shouldn't turn its back on these children.

Tuesday night he called a special meeting with local organizations that might be willing to help find a local solution. They're calling it the "Caring Cities Campaign." Representatives from various human services and faith-based organizations put their heads together. They were brought together in hopes of reaching out to children thousands of miles away.

"You can't turn your back on kids, little children, and tell them they must go back to Honduras and in many cases be killed. That's wrong," Gluba said.

He says people have called offering up their homes and that he's been in contact with the White House and Department of Health and Human Services about what the community can do.
