Biden Administration Said They Are Not Financially Supporting Migrants, BUT…UNREAL! WATCH
The Biden administration has been claiming that the United States does not give financial support to illegal migrants. However, this is simply not true. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) claimed Thursday that the U.S. government doesn’t financially support illegal immigrants, but federal dollars continue to fund nonprofits helping illegal migrants.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) runs the Emergency Food and Shelter program, which provides tens of millions of dollars every year to fund nongovernmental groups helping migrants, according to FEMA’s website.
In fact, the government provides other benefits to illegal immigrants, including:
- Healthcare: Illegal immigrants are eligible for emergency medical care, even if they do not have health insurance. They can also receive Medicaid and CHIP benefits if they meet certain income requirements.
- Education: Illegal immigrants are eligible to attend public schools, even if they are not citizens. They can also receive financial aid for college if they meet certain requirements.
- Food stamps: Illegal immigrants are eligible for food stamps if they meet certain income requirements.
- Housing assistance: Illegal immigrants are eligible for housing assistance if they meet certain income requirements
Former Border Patrol Chief Rodney Scott testified to Congress Tuesday and said that the U.S. government is using tax dollars to aid illegal immigrants. He called the program “basically money being laundered to the NGOs.”
On FEMA’s website, it says “funds for organizations assisting migrants,” which includes $350 million in already used funds in the fiscal year 2023. The program has also provided more than $300 million to organizations helping migrants between fiscal 2019 and 2022.
An April report from the Government Accountability Office (GAO) revealed that the Department of Homeland Security coordinates with and funds nonprofit organizations that help illegal migrants. The report said: “DHS’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Emergency Food and Shelter Program provided more than $282 million in humanitarian relief grant funding to nonprofit and governmental organizations,” the report reads. “This grant funding covered services provided to noncitizens in fiscal years 2019, 2021, and 2022.”
What is the White House thinking?
