Former Congressman Ernest Istook (R-Oklahoma) has a plan to deal with tens of thousands of illegal immigrants who have arrived on the southern border in recent weeks: Fly them home.
More importantly, he said this can be achieved for 99.5% less than the $3.8 billion that President Barack Obama is asking for to house 30,000 illegal aliens for a year.
From his column in The Washington Times:
At the unofficial reported cost of $250 per person per day, President Barack Obama is proposing we spend $1.8 billion to provide appropriate care for unaccompanied children. That works out to 19,726 minors for a year.

It’s laughable that I.C.E. will run out of money mid August and they are “desperately” seeking $4billion more, just months before the annual budget process.
A couple of Navy ships could have them back in a day and they wouldn’t even have to get off the deck of the aircraft carrier during the trip.
Just spread the word that illegals will be relocated to prisons in India and China. It would only take a few plane loads and they will all return to their home countries.
That 4 billion will go to a legal team to keep every one of the invading hoards here.
The only thing V.J. didn’t plan on is that the 47% ERS are realizing their free stuff is being given to someone else. Carma’s a Bitch!
If the Repubs were smart they’d drone the press at every turn that in order to pay for it other social programs will need to be cut because we are Broke. Then tell them Nero would rather buy their vote with amnesty versus feed your kids or pay for your itbefree card.
Send them back across the border, charge them for the bus ticket. If they cannot pay I have no problem taking the clothes off their backs in trade. They are ILLEGAL INVADERS.
We are stuck with them!
this is all about sneaking amnesty through congress.
Boehner is doing kabuki theater.
The house will pass SOMETHING
the senate will amend it into pure amnesty in the name of “refugee children”.
The conference committee will then adopt the senate version.
DC betrays the USA again.
Who expects an actual budget? We have been operating the Fed government on ‘Continuing Resolutions’ for the past 5 years.
Barry doesn’t seem to know how to prepare a budget for Congress.
Yeah, just the wave of a hand and deem it so.
