Almost $100 million of taxpayer money is now slated to take care of people who are not legally allowed in the country.
Not only did Biden send a message that he will welcome illegal immigrants with open arms as they come into the United States, but now he has approved almost $100 million to care for and house these illegals.
His administration has approved $86.9 million to house these illegal aliens who are forcing their way into the US from Mexico and disregarding our immigration laws. The money is to be spent over a period of 6 months and will provide 1,239 beds for illegal immigrants, as well as “other necessary services.”
His efforts to undo the much stricter immigration policy of former President Trump are coming at a higher cost to the American people. The border is currently flooded with people trying to get into the U.S. undetected. Migration facilities are overrun. Border patrol officers are overwhelmed and asking for people to volunteer to help keep the border in check. It’s become mass chaos.
In January, border arrests were the highest they’ve been in a decade. Illegal immigrants are pouring across the border in record numbers. All responding to the promise of lax immigration laws by President Biden during his run for presidency and to the order he signed halting deportation for the first 100 days in office. All while he attempts to overhaul the current laws.
Plus, this $100 million is just what is being spent to care for illegals for 6 months. Add in the money being spent to continually deport the same people. The cost keeps going up.
Even FEMA is being sent to render aid at the Biden border crisis.
What happened to putting your country first? Making sure your people are safe and your land secure? These would seem to be important traits for a leader of the country to possess, but apparently this is a foreign concept to the current administration.
If the same money was spent with Americans’ security in mind, many of these issues could be lessened.
Instead of spending taxpayer money to house and take care of people who shouldn’t even be in the country, the American people would be better served by using $100 million to fortify the borders and ensure their safety. Especially since many of these illegal immigrants are criminal offenders who have already been deported at least once before.
For Biden to create such an unstable border and then spend millions of dollars just to house and care for the problem he created is a serious injustice to the American people.
