The Biden administration loves to burn through cash as quickly as possible, and the transportation of illegal aliens around the United States, has cost American taxpayers upwards of $340 million in the first 9 months of 2021.
Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL), obtained data from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), that showed the huge cost incurred by illegal immigration in less than a year.
From late January 2021 to September 2021, the Biden administration shelled out $340 million of Americans tax dollars on transporting those who had crossed the border illegally into the interior of the country.
Illegal border crossers have been flown around the country to small to midsized airports for months and private companies and NGOs are helping to facilitate this, moving them to cities and towns in New York, Illinois, Florida and Pennsylvania, among others.
The Transportation Security Agency (TSA) revealed that border crossers and illegal aliens were bypassing ID requirements and were allowed to take commercial domestic flights. Bizarrely they are able to use arrest warrants and federal custody booking records to board flights instead.
Also in that same time frame, Biden spent an additional $212 million on medical care for illegal aliens, of course provided by American taxpayers.
Shockingly, nearly 46,000 Unaccompanied Alien Children (UACs) were flown into the U.S heartland and that figure doesn’t include hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens who have been released into the U.S after being stopped at the border, a figure close to 530,000.
The constant pandering to illegals, however, helped an illegal alien evade deportation from the U.S after he was accused of killing a 19 year old girl in Texas.
Adrienne Sophia Exum was allegedly hit and killed in Harris County Texas, by an illegal alien from Mexico, who was charged with fleeing the scene and drunk driving.
DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, bragged that Biden’s sanctuary country orders – were preventing most illegal aliens being arrested and deported.
“Unlawful presence in the United States, alone, will not be a basis for immigration enforcement action … it is a matter of justice and equity as well,” Mayorkas said.
Crime in America is rising exponentially, and many of the border crossers have been previously accused and/or convicted of child sex crimes, armed robbery, drunk-driving, burglary, cocaine trafficking, grand theft auto, heroin trafficking, credit card fraud, money laundering and other crimes.
Biden’s mishandling of everything from immigration, to the supply chain, to the exit from Afghanistan, to the growing inflation; isn’t inspiring Americans.
According to a new poll from ABC News/Ipsos, only one percent of Americans view Bidens economy as excellent.
Just one percent.
Respondents were asked how they would “describe the state of the nation’s economy these days,” one percent said excellent. Twenty-three percent said good. Forty-seven percent said not so good. Twenty-eight percent said poor.
Inflation has hit a 40 year high, with consumer sentiment completely tanking to the lowest point in a decade. Average rent has increased by 14 percent, reaching around $1,877 per month and in some places, rent has risen by 40 percent.
According to the Labor Department, the average worker’s pay decreased by 2.4 percent in 2021, even though wages increased under Biden, rising inflation and costs are eating up any rises.
Biden made big promises of improving the economy, shutting down the virus in the process and “unifying” the country. He hasn’t done any of those things and his presidency has been such a disaster, the thought of another 3 years of this leadership, should be enough to worry even the most politically ignorant people.
