Republicans Demand Biden Disclose ‘Total Dollar Amount’ in Taxpayer Money Funding Illegal Immigration:
Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are enjoying millions in taxpayer-funded grants to facilitate illegal immigration throughout the United States, Reps. Lance Gooden (R-TX) and Jim Jordan (R-OH) say.
In a letter to the National Board of Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Emergency Food and Shelter Program (EFSP), Gooden and Jordan demanded a full accounting for all taxpayer-funded grants that have been awarded to NGOs.
“The surge of illegal immigration, fueled in part by NGOs like those on the EFSP National Board is unsustainable and unfair to law-abiding citizens and immigrants alike,” Gooden said in a statement.
The EFSP was initially created to help homeless Americans.
In particular, Gooden and Jordan called out United Way Worldwide for its lucrative grant funding through the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that provides aid to illegal aliens
“… the United Way and similar organizations are receiving millions of taxpayer dollars to provide free food, lodging, and transportation for illegal aliens across the U.S.” a press release states.
Gooden and Jordan said they are concerned about the “misuse and fraud” of taxpayer dollars to NGOs aiding illegal immigration as FEMA provides little-to-no oversight of such grants. --->READ MORE HERE

HILL: The $19.5 billion merry-go-round at the border
Purely from a cost/benefit analysis angle, what the Biden administration is doing ― and not doing ― at the border doesn’t make any financial sense at all.
Whether they let every illegal entrant stay in the US or deport them back to their home country, US taxpayers are left holding the bag and paying tens of billions of their tax dollars each year, much of which is supporting a very expensive, and many times a very inhumane, merry-go-round.
People who cross the border are detained and processed by Homeland Security border patrol agents ― which costs a lot of money. The total annual cost for US border patrol personnel and operations is over $5 billion, up from $263 million in 1990.
Six million people have crossed the southern border illegally since Joe Biden became president. His reasons have never been fully explained in a coherent manner ― which is not unusual for this president and his entire cabinet to be honest.
We have experienced a massive surge of illegal immigrants before. President George W. Bush essentially turned a blind eye to the flood of immigrants from 2002 to 2008 ostensibly bowing to agriculture and construction interests who wanted more low-wage workers to pick produce and build buildings.
Maybe President Biden is trying to out-do Bush 43.
However, not every illegal immigrant is allowed to stay in America forever. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and Homeland Security are actually deporting millions of them ― as they are supposed to do. --->READ MORE HERE
