Where the Money Goes, No One Knows

FEMA stonewalls Congress on how much it’s spending to relocate illegal immigrants to cities and towns around the country.
Representative Kat Cammack has some questions about where the money goes.
Don’t we all?
From her bully pulpit on the Homeland Security Committee, whose Subcommittee on Emergency Preparedness, Response and Recovery she serves as the ranking Republican, Cammack has butted heads with the brass at the Federal Emergency Management Agency over its response to the border crisis, which she understands to be . . . a federal emergency very much in need of management.
Among other things, she wants to know how much the agency is spending to help relocate illegal immigrants to cities and towns around the country.
So far, she hasn’t gotten an answer.
FEMA is not the main problem on the border — the problem is federal policy more than it is the agencies that implement it — but Representative Cammack’s dispute with FEMA raises an illuminating point.
When illegal immigrants are processed at the border, non-governmental organizations provide them with various kinds of services, including, in some cases, land or air transportation to some forward destination. The NGOs then secure reimbursement for these expenses through FEMA, meaning that federal tax dollars are used to subsidize the resettlement of illegal immigrants around the country.
How much money is being spent on that? Representative Cammack would like to know and is irritated that FEMA will not say.
