As Americans cut back on their lifestyles due to continuing inflation (caused by reckless government spending), the Biden administration wants to spend more money.
On Sunday, Breitbart reported the following:
President Joe Biden’s deputies are asking the House GOP majority to fund new travel and housing programs for more economic migrants who are being encouraged to take opportunities needed by ordinary Americans.
The August 10 request for $3.3 billion funding “is not all designed to promote more illegal immigration, but most of it seems to be,” said Mark Krikorian, director of the Center for Immigration Studies, adding:
Which is why there’s resistance among a lot of Republicans to increased funding for [the department of] Homeland Security (DHS). If DHS was using the money to actually stop the flow of illegal aliens, Republicans will be falling all over themselves to vote for it. But that’s not what this administration wants to with the do extra money for DHS — they want to use it to speed up the arrival of people who have no right to be here.
The “border guard is turned into a Walmart greeter,” he said.
The article concludes:
The request also asks for $1.5 billion to help speed up the flow of migrants through U.S. borders:
Of the amounts provided, $203 million would support border management operations by CBP, including for soft-sided facilities, migrant transportation, and medical care requirements. This request also includes $606 million for CBP to reimburse the Department of Defense for border security support along the Southwest border … This request would provide $759 million to the Operations and Support account within the U.S Immigration and Customs Enforcement bureau in the Department of Homeland Security. Of this amount, $714 million would be used to respond to migration surges along the Southwest border and related activities.
The document also asks for $800 million to counter the flow of drugs that are being delivered by the cartels.
If the Republicans ever want to gain majorities in Congress, they should veto this additional spending. Notice that the illegal aliens are now being referred to as ‘economic migrants.’ At the rate things are happening, these migrants are going to have to go somewhere else to find prosperity. The Biden administration is killing prosperity in America.
