Feds paid $182,129,786 to house illegals for 4 months

My good friend and patriot, Tom Fitton, and his exceptional team at Judicial Watch have done it again. They’ve once again uncovered the nefarious actions of the Obama administration in improper use of hard-earned American taxpayer resources. If it were not for Judicial Watch, we’d be completely in the dark and truly vulnerable to the progressive socialist left’s definition of “transparency.”

Judicial Watch announced today that on September 9, 2014, it received documents from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) revealing that the Obama administration paid Baptist Children and Family Services (BCFS) $182,129,786 to provide “basic shelter care” to 2,400 “unaccompanied alien children” (UAC) for four months in 2014.”

The BCFS budget included charges for $104,215,608 for UACs at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, and an additional $77,914,178 for UACs at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas. The start date of BCFS’s contract was October 1, 2013, but it was signed on June 27, 2014. The project’s end date of September 30, 2016, suggests that the Obama administration anticipates that the “surge” will continue until near the end of his presidency.”

The fact that this “contract” was awarded last year in October lends credibility to the belief that the Obama administration knew all along there would be a massive influx of illegal immigrants into America — and was in preparation mode. But we knew that already.

Furthermore, where is the Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF) and its complaints about “separation of church and state?” After all, BCFS is a religious organization that received millions in American taxpayer dollars.

Ah, the hypocrisy. If you are the Little Sisters of the Poor and don’t support the progressive socialist healthcare policy agenda, then you are a bad religious organization and must be penalized. Or if you are a preacher speaking up about policies being instituted in your city, then you can have your sermons subpoenaed.

But if you’re on the Obama team, you are a good, acceptable religious organization and will be funded to implement the “fundamental transformation.”

Now, am I the only one who sees this blatant hypocrisy? And to give taxpayer funds to a religious organization in order to house illegals on a U.S. military installation just takes the cake — could we not have used those millions of dollars to preclude “pink slipping” some of our men and women who support and defend our constitution? Well, I suppose not. Defense policy and funding our troops — or even our veterans — means little to those focused on politics and campaign promises.

“According to the documents obtained by Judicial Watch, the cost to the American taxpayer was $86,846.34 per illegal alien child at Ft. Sill, for a total to $104,215,608 for 1,200 UACs from June 12 to October 18. The bill also included $2,648,800 in compensation for 30 members of the BCFS “Incident Management Team” (IMT), for a total to $88,293 per IMT member for the four-month period.”

The $77,914,178 to care for 1,200 children at Lackland AFB amounted to a cost to the taxpayer of $64,928 per illegal alien child from May 18 to September 18. The Lackland bill included $20,000 for a “cable television screen/projector set up” and 20 shower stalls at $1,000 each.”

And all this while we have some 93 million Americans who have been forced to drop out of the workforce, period. All this at a time when the American taxpayers’ share of the national debt is nearly $100,000 — and I delineate taxpayer.

So I must ask the same rhetorical question: on whose side is the Obama administration? And with the recent unlawful Obama executive action on immigration reform, American taxpayers can expect an even greater bill.

Here are some interesting highlights:

Food will be provided by a local catering service at $75 per day for 3 meals and 2 snacks. [According to the USDA, the cost to feed a teenager per say in the U.S. is roughly $71.70 – or approximately $10 per day.]

Recreational items will include board games, soccer balls, basket balls, jump ropes, bracelet making kits, yarn, puzzles, arts and crafts, decks of cards, and eye-hand coordination game sets. Reimbursement is requested for $180,000.”

Educational items will include … tempera paint, paint markers, paint brushes, easel brushes, art paper … Crayons, multicultural crayons … for $180,000.

In addition, contact with family members is imperative and part of BCFS’s daily programing in which each client is affording the opportunity to call their families twice every week … 1200 UACs x 2 calls x 20 minutes – 48,000 minutes a week x .75 x 16 weeks – $576,000.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton summed it up nicely, “It is outrageous that the Obama administration spent nearly $200 million of taxpayer funds to provide illegal alien children with the types of extravagant high-tech equipment and lavish benefits many American families cannot even afford for their own children. And very few American workers are bringing home the $80,000 the Obama administration pays the BCFS’s Incident Management Team for just four months’ work.”

You just can’t make this stuff up — “hands up, don’t shoot” — all while the Obama administration is fleecing the taxpayers. Final question, will this make the news at ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSBNC, or PBS? I ain’t holding my breath. This, folks, is “transparency” liberal progressive style.

Think about how many Americans it took to pay for that. We work for months to pay our taxes so the government can have their fair share. Politicians on both sides of the aisle don’t care that working Americans are slaves to the tax system. They just spend like wild men with only their own political interests in mind.

We desperately need true small government leaders. Stop wasting our money and the future of the next 2 generations

Foster families get about $600-$700 in some states to foster a child for ONE month! We sure could have used that money to build the fence at the border, deported these illegals and assisted CITIZEN families who are in need of help today.

Darn! I make twice less annually than these illegals got for 4 months! It seems U.S. cares more about illegals than about its own people and legal aliens!

To all the ‘bleeding hearts” out there for Save the Children. This isn’t saving any children. This is robbing from the poor and this administration isn’t any better than the Sheriff of Nottingham. These children should be shipped back to their parents and to their countries who should be taking care of them with all the Foreign Aid we are sending to them. To Mexico, To Central America: Take care of your people or we will no longer support you with Foreign Aid (as the POTUS says) PERIOD

800,000 children, gang members who are minors arrived over the boarder without their parents so working citizens of the USA. can financially support them in an expensive lifestyle all because Obama invited them into our country and he refuses to send them home ….soon the kids parents and family members shall arrive too for free medical, housing, and grand lifestyle that is not available for them on their countries. …over 11 million illegals here that we’re supporting and plenty more on the way…. will any funds be available by the time we need to reture?

Proof that they are overtaxing us to spend without protecting our interests, representing us, or concerned whatsoever with what we think about anything.

Can you please clarify the point above which says “USDA says the approx. cost to feed a teenager per say is roughly 71.70 or approx. 10.00.” This does not make any sense at all.

Lee

71.70 a week or about 10.00 a day
They were comparing the 10.00 a day it should cost compared to the 75.00 a day the Obama administration is paying for 3 meals and 2 snacks. Highway robbery of tax payers

I take issue with this article assuming this organization is “progressive socialist” not sure that’s true. But either way aren’t churches supposed to take from the tithe for this sort of thing and not tax payers?

What pisses me off the most is that all these services were in place before those kids got here so Obama was clearly deceiving the American tax payers. He could care less if we approve of it or not. He’s going to do exactly what he wants to do because he knows there will be no repercussions. He knows that 74% of the American people are against his executive ordered amnesty but he doesn’t give America’s needs a second thought. How can anyone say he’s doing the job he was elected to do? Why can’t he be taken down?

Rick Williams

1. ExxonMobil Income tax expense: $31 billion Net income: $45 billion Effective tax rate: 39% -Forbes US Corporations pay the highest tax rate in the world. Read something besides HuffPost sometime. And Exxon employs 75,000 people directly. The richest 20% pay 90% of the taxes. And they have the right to complain when people spend it frivolously. By welfare, I guess you mean GM who employs over 200,000. Oh, I forgot for a second… Earl Lee is a troll. Was still fun making my point.

The nasty part is that these children are getting a much better life than most inner city kids and their parents and taxpayers who are struggling get to pay for the luxuries for these kids. These kids invited themselves, why are they treated like favored guests?

Not worth it. We the People demand better accounting for the dollars spent.

“The people have delegated to Congress, by the Constitution, the power to do certain things. To do these, it is authorized to collect and pay moneys, and for nothing else. Everything beyond this is usurpation, and a violation of the Constitution.'” story Crockett told … Google it, a good story behind this.

Welcome to the progressive/Socialist economy. Take more and more from taxes. And if that’s not enough, just ring up another few trillion dollars on the Treasury Credit Card. Now use that to “hire” people to do work the government never budgeted for or received Congressional approval for. These new hires then reduce the unemployment number by a few dozen people.

See? Obama’s “economic policies” are working! More Governmnet jobs funded by taxes!!

The amount of money spent on that is ridiculous. There are homeless agencies who spend less than ten dollars a day to feed people of all ages and bath and entertain them. This is a lot of money that could have been used in many different areas of importance than this, this is corrupt and disdainful. Shoot, they could have built a few hospitals, power plants, housed the homeless, served the vets of this nation….. They probably could send them all back home with that money in the same amount of time and had some left over to build a… Read more »

The numbers aren’t quite right. That’s not the actual disbursed funds – those were projected costs based on figures that included more kids than were actually served. The *actual* costs were: 84,525,216 (almost 100 million less) and served almost 8000 children (not 2400) during the approximately 5 month period (let’s call that roughly 150 days). That comes out to $71 or so a day (or $2.93 per hour) to house, clothe, feed, and provide educational materials to these children. Now, the average cost of day care in the US is $11,666 per year per kid, or, roughly $31 per day… Read more »
