Budget to Transport Illegals Across USA Approaches $100M

Kristin Tate, Breitbart, July 21, 2014

The U.S. Senate Appropriations Subcommittee approved a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) budget for Fiscal Year (FY) 2015 that includes $5.508 billion for Immigration and Customs Enforcement operations. Included in that amount is more than $87 million for the transportation of illegal immigrants–most often via plane–from the U.S.-Mexico border to federal facilities around the nation.

The FY 2015 bill summary states that the federal government will provide “$87.6 million above the request for the transportation of unaccompanied immigrant children–often via commercial or charter aircraft–from DHS custody to the legally required shelters operated by the Office of Refugee Resettlement within Department of Health and Human Services.”

A DHS request for “escort services for unaccompanied alien children,” posted online in January, claimed that 50 percent of transported foreign minors are brought to interior U.S. cities via commercial planes. The others are transported via local ground transport and ICE charter air crafts.

    A game of hot potato or musical chairs costs $100 million?

    Insanity to the max!

    How did the invasion ever get by before Obama?

  • This isn’t “enforcement”; it’s the opposite of that!

  • dd121

    This is exactly how the left wants to unravel the fabric of America. One thread at a time.

  • There is only 1 solution . . . .gone fishing .

    I’m sure that the Corps of Engineers could knock together some spartan but decent detainment facilities next to the border for a fraction of the cost. We did it with Japanese-Americans during WWII. The idea is to spread them widely and release them a few at a time so that the frog doesn’t notice that the water in the pot is getting hotter.

      Why is it so few seem to understand this?

    Let’s just drop out of the ‘system’. They don’t care about White men, women, and children. Stop feeding the machine. You know what you have to do. Go on govt. assistance. Apply for every govt. benefit possible. ‘Go fishing’. Get ready for the fall of the Empire.

    • I have to admit that the last eight years of not having a regular job has been the most pleasant time of my life.

    • Einsatzgrenadier

      Yes, drop out of the system, but also keep yourself physically fit, learn about hand-to-hand combat and how to use weapons. Your going to need it when SHTF and Third World America goes the way of the western Roman empire.

  • Well, the airlines have gotta love the illegals. But do they delouse the seats afterward?

    …more than $87 million for the transportation of illegal immigrants–most often via plane–from the U.S.-Mexico border to federal facilities around the nation.

    Yet American Veterans are forced to wait and die for health care while illegal foreign nationals receive immediate attention – and soon every welfare and Affirmative Action program not available to Native Born White children.


    Bad VA care may have killed more than 1,000 veterans, senator’s report says.

    Fox News:

    The VA Inspector General’s office is investigating the possible purging of more than 10,000 veterans health applications

    AZ Central:

    The death of as many as 40 patients allegedly waiting for care at a Phoenix VA hospital has sparked outrage

      Stop spending billions of Dollars to apprehend and detain fellow North American migrants and that money would be available to vets and other citizens in need.

      • Martel733

        illegal alien drunk drivers kill more Americans in 2 weeks than rifles do in a year.

      • Alexandra1973

        In case you missed it, we do not have a North American Union (yet). And we don’t want one.

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        I quit reading your post at “stop.”

        Nothing you say matters. We don’t need your permission to protect our race, culture and heritage from criminal and cultural parasites.

        You are totally irrelevant.

  • IstvanIN

    That money could have been used for troops to keep them on the Mexican side of the border. The ones that got through would be put in tents temporarily and sent back home. The word word would have gotten out and the flow of human excrement would have slowed. Of course if we actually enforced our laws and defended our border none of this would have happened. 535 members of Congress and how many actually think what us happening is a bad thing? 1? 2?

    • Guest

      I cant believe 535 pimply assd dirtbags have the power to destroy a nation like the USA. With a population of about 300 million ppl.

      • Talk about braindead zombies. It must be all the GMO.

    • Pro_Whitey

      Estimate of 60,000 illegal alien kiddies x $1,000 for a one-way ticket back to a Central American airport of their choice (seems high, given the gubmint should be able to get a bulk discount) would add up to $60 million. Our gubmint at work. Just as a reminder folks, Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution obligates the federal gubmint to PROTECT states from invasion, not facilitate an invasion.

  • MBlanc46

    We’re lucky that the Chinese will lend us the money.

    • Alexandra1973

      Or are we….

      • MBlanc46

        Well, they’re going to spend it whether the Chinese loan them to it or not. I can’t tell which is worse.

  • IKUredux

    Gosh, I’m a little confused. So, it costs an illegal uac eight thousand dollars to a coyote to come across the border. Some families have more than one child they are paying for. I don’t know, call me crazy, but I would think that eight thousand dollars in Central America would go quite far. So, how exactly do you wire transfer eight thousand dollars to a four year old? Even assuming the four year old is a genius, how does said four year old get to transportation? By tricycle? This whole thing is so fing ludicrous, that I am appalled that none of our elected officials has called BS on this whole thing. Because, that is what it is. BS. There is nothing united in these states, other than our contempt for TPTB, and our desire to rid ourselves of them.

  • This is making me sick. We are being attacked left and right with these crazy mandates. There is no system of government anymore. There is no law. There is no order. The White American citizens are now deposed of EVERYTHING. This country is done.

  • Greg Thomas

    And yet they claim we do not have the funds to build a fence to secure the border, Someone is not telling us the truth.

    • Alexandra1973

      You expect politicians to be truthful?

      The lame-stream media is in the government’s back pocket, too…just its mouthpiece.
