Do you remember when Democrats and RINOs in Congress continuously opposed President Donald Trump’s proposed funding amounts for a border wall?
Initially, they claimed $15 billion was excessive, then reduced it to $6 billion, and eventually even argued that $3.2 billion was too much.
Unfortunately, the construction of the border wall remained incomplete, allowing the Biden-Harris administration to seemingly encourage illegal immigrants to enter the country freely and bring along companions – particularly military-aged males.
These circumstances have created a concerning situation.
As a consequence, instead of focusing on assisting genuine asylum-seekers fleeing war-torn countries or recovering from catastrophic natural disasters, the Office of Refugee Resettlement is allocating significant amounts of taxpayer money towards catering to individuals who have different motivations for coming to America.
According to Washington Times:
The federal agency responsible for busing, sheltering and supporting the largely unauthorized immigrant population pouring across America’s borders spent nearly $20 billion over the last two years, according to a new report.
Most of that money was spent on sheltering and caring for immigrant children who are in the U.S. illegally, with other funds also going to help new arrivals from Afghanistan, Cuba, Haiti and other nations favored by President Biden’s immigration policies, according to OpenTheBooks.com.
It’s not just more people. The Office of Refugee Resettlement, part of the Health and Human Services Department, is expanding the type of assistance it offers to include helping migrants access loans, build credit or collect direct cash payments.
The current situation is marked by distressing occurrences such as veterans resorting to suicide, an escalating homelessness crisis, hardworking Americans struggling to make ends meet with multiple jobs, all while the Biden-Harris administration prioritizes assistance for Chinese “asylum seekers” in boosting their credit scores.
“Regular Americans are underwriting the generosity. And it’s the hardworking taxpayer who is feeling the strain as migrants are resettled in their neighborhoods across the country,” said Adam Andrzejewski, CEO and founder of OpenTheBooks. “Exploding expenditures on everything from resettlement to auto loans are further incentivizing a vicious cycle at our borders.”
How many border walls could have been built for $20 billion?
