Congress Must Say No To Obama’s $3.9 Billion Refugee Slush Fund

As he wraps up his final negotiations with the U.S. Congress over funding the government, Obama has demanded a $3.9 billion refugee resettlement slush fund. This is nearly a 250% increase over current year funding for the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR).
This multi-billion dollar refugee slush fund would also send the message to tens of thousands of illegals who are waiting to cross the border that when they do, Uncle Sam has borrowed a few billion dollars from the Chinese in order to provide them with cash and welfare services – only serving to encourage more illegal border crossings.
The American people just elected Donald J. Trump because he pledged to reform the refugee program, secure our nation’s borders, and put the safety and security of the American people first. A more than doubling of the ORR budget undermines these reforms at every step – encouraging more illegal immigration and sending taxpayer money to the sanctuary cities and organizations that are working overtime to stop Trump’s reforms.
Remarkably, Obama’s increased funding request comes at a time when the administration has cut a secret deal – hidden from Congress and the public – to import nearly 2,500 refugees that even Australia has deemed too dangerous. The fact that the details of who these refugees are has been kept from Congress should be reason alone to reject this funding increase – not create a slush fund to provide these dangerous refugees welfare and handouts.
