For nearly eight years, President Barack Obama’s administration has been besieged with criticism of wasteful government spending by conservatives – and as he leaves office, the national debt stands at nearly $20 trillion.
Now in his lame duck month, a new analysis of his final federal budget proposal may have found the most outrageous example of waste yet. The Obama administration’s budget asked for $2.1 billion set aside for illegal immigrants — which includes over a billion in benefits for an expected 75,000 Central American teenagers and children the administration estimates illegally entered the country in 2016.
This is according to analysis by the Center for Immigration Studies, which calculates that the budget request would amount to $17,613 in taxpayer money for every illegal child — more than double what the government spent in 2010.
And it doesn’t end there! As KGNS reported:
The immigration surge seen in south Texas has not bypassed Laredo.
Central Americans have been heading into the United states and on Thursday a group of women were released downtown.
Haphazard feet and confused faces begin spilling, filling the downtown Greyhound station.
About 40 women are being released on their own recognizance by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
In November 2016, a total of 3,195 illegal aliens were apprehended in the Laredo Sector. These included 244 Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) and 175 Family Unit Aliens (FMUA). FMUA’s are defined by CBP as a child under 18 years old, parent or legal guardian) apprehended with a family member.
November saw the fifth consecutive month where the numbers of total apprehensions along our southwest border increased, Breitbart Texas reported earlier this month.
What’s the point? To add just a few dozen more to the total number of people Donald Trump will inevitably deport anyway?
