White House Dictates: $3.8 Billion Needed To Stem The Surge Of Immigrants
Zero Hedge ^ | 07/08/2014 | Tyler Durden

Posted on 07/08/2014 8:23:45 AM PDT by Cheerio

At almost double the $2 billion that many had expected, The Washington Post reports that The White House will request $3.8 billion from Congress in emergency funding to deal with an influx of unaccompanied minors from Central America. Funds would be allocated to send more immigration judges to the southern border, build additional detention facilities and add border patrol agents, to help stem the recent surge of women and children from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras.

President piece of rap caused the situation using the state dept budget, he can find the money to stop it there.

It'd be better spent stopping this illegal flow than attempting to "mediate" peace in the middle east.

If any money given AFTER the borders are closed tight, NONE of it should go to any lawyer for any reason. Let the dirtbags work pro bono if they believe in all of this.

Any money given should be for the sole purpose of deporting them back to their home countries. Nothing else.

If Congress approved spending, could they choose someone else to spend it? Otherwise Obama will just spend the money as he wishes. I don’t trust him to faithfully carry out the intentions of our elected representatives

Congress should give money directly to the border states to pay for the manpower (National Guard/fence construction) to turn back the invaders and the advertising in Central America needed to correct the impression Obama has given them.

If Obama wants to bypass Congress, they should decide to bypass him.

Take it right the hell out of the IRS and the State Dep’t. Then they can make up any damn numbers they want. This is outrageous. What about all those pro-bono young lib lawyers that adore these illegals? I bet they would work cheap.

I have no doubt the $3.8 billion will be used for “grants” to favored, government-sponsored leftist immigration groups for “education,” “social services,” etc....

Its how ACORN was funded - through all kinds of HUD “housing grants.”

It would be cheaper to write each one a check for $10,000, give them a pat on the butt, and a one-way ticket to their country of origin.

At the risk of being called a racist this is my observation...
You are witnessing the “Fundamental Change” he promised, with tens of thousands of sick/infected minors infesting our cities. The fundamental racial make up will change from a majority white/working/bill paying society to a Hispanic/welfare/one.
The infestation of disease, including Drug Resistant TB, measles, mumps,scabies and lice is basically Biological Warfare perpetrated not by bombs but with human carriers.
Most of these diseases have been wiped out of the country and vaccinations stopped years ago, and by transporting these individuals to the large population points we are open to infection on a massive scale.

he is asking for 4 billion in hopes of getting 2 billion.

I say give him a nice round ZERO and amend the law to allow deportations without hearings.

Don’t waste money flying illegal aliens all over the place - DEPORT THEM.

Better yet, don’t even let them enter!

If we do that then the media will say that the resulting disaster is the republicans fault.

A bill has to be crafted in such a way that it is impossible for the money to end up with ACORN or any other such group.
I think the money should be directed to something like the National Guard to secure the border and secure the illegals while they are being sorted out.

Use money to pay current local jurisdictions to provide overtime pay for current city, county, and state lawyers and judges.

He is not above just spending it no matter if it is appropriated by Congress or not. Remember as he told us he has a pen and a phone - that is all he needs when we have a Speaker of the House that knows nothing about negotiating and is afraid of his own shadow and a complicit SCOTUS. As for Reid he has destroyed whatever independence the Senate used to have - nothing but a butt boy for Zero.

YOur not going to stop giving the money to the wrong people..

No money is the only way to assure that.

They could say no and simply point to the programs that already have funding to handle the issue.

They should also point out that it is MUCH cheaper to prevent them from crossing the boarder in the first place.

In the eyes of the ‘Progressives’ this is just another jobs bill. Create a crisis, then throw money at it.
There can be no open borders AND a welfare state. The destruction of The United States of America is nearly complete.

Your not going to stop giving the money to the wrong people..

If we can't stop Obama from giving money to the wrong people then there is no hope for us.

Someone has to take control of the border. Obama will let the illegals wreck the country. That was probably his plan in the first place.

you will have to look to the governments of boarder states to do something about it.

You will then see the fedgov fight them.
