Skip to comments.Dem. Rep: 'Not a Cost' if Illegal Children are Turned Over to Families in U.S.
Posted on 07/30/2014 7:21:16 PM PDT by Tailgunner Joe
Massachusetts Democratic Rep. Jim McGovern argued Wednesday that once unaccompanied illegal immigrant minors are turned over to their family members in the United States, they are no longer a burden on the United States.
You talk about the costs of these children, if they are reunited with their families here in the United States, there is not a cost, so, McGovern said at a House Rules Committee hearing on the emergency supplemental appropriations bill dealing with the border crisis.
Texas Republican Rep. Kay Granger who heads House Speaker John Boehners border working group protested McGoverns assertion.
Im sorry, thats just not right. Of course theres a cost. Theres a huge cost, she said.
If you're saying were not trying to unite them with their families who are also here illegally, in most cases and so yes, there is a cost, and one of the reasons to speed this up is it is taking a year and a half and five years for these cases to come before a judge, in the situation weve got now. And during that time, were going to pay for their support where they are, Granger explained.

Just wow! What a maroon.
Welfare? Food stamps?
It would really be cheap if we turn them over to THEIR OWN FAMILIES in Central America. That would save the U.S. taxpayers money and protect the “children” from being molested by commie lib child molesters. Americans needs to show some love and send the “unaccompanied” invaders home to their OWN families.
McGovern is just as leftist and stupid as old George was, and just as red. Massachusetts, the home of treason, subversion and the Red Triangle of colleges.
How about finding out from these illegal alien kids who exactly their parents are, then bring their parents to the border holding facility where the kids are located, then charge them with abandonment, neglect, willful negligence of their parenting duties, and child endangerment?
Then immediately deport all their criminal family right back across the border.
That will take care of a bloody lot of costs indeed, both short-term and for the future.
Or just start a rumor that the US is deporting all these children to China so they can be processed into pet food
Yep. I think McGovern needs to put his money where his mouth is and let us ship 6 - 7 illegal alien MS13 gang members to his home so we can if he’s a hypocrite or not.
If their families are in the US — how the he|| did they get to Honduras?
Untrue on its face, but also I never have believed the “uniting with their families” myth. Whenever the NY Times has one violin solo after another on this theme, you know it’s not true. The kids are going to Latino families who are being paid to take care of them with our tax money. They love to tug on our heartstrings with lies and pretty photographs. If they’re being united with their parents, why did their parents leave them in dangerous surroundings? And why are they being warehoused all over the country.,
At least tell us lies we can believe.
Then why is Obama requesting more money? Stupid Democrats!
Huge areas that are bordered on three sides with large, uncrossable fences -except for the south-facing side, which will be open to Old Meh-hi-co.
Once they are released into the area they can be told they have a choice. Stay there in the compound/"National Preserve Park" where they are welcome to forage for whatever they can find, or start walking back south.
With a suitable warning that anyone attempting to go over or around the miles-long fences and escape that way will be shot as terrorist invaders.
They should get the hint fairly quickly.
Which families are taking in the druggies, gang members, and scum prancing their butts across the border.
WTH is WRONG with all the DemoRat politicians wanting to bring hundreds of thousands, if not millions into our cities and overload our welfare, educational, healthcare systems and housing facilities lately. Hell not only are they going to take jobs from hard working citizens, they’re not going to pay back into the system and take away resources on every level as well. In addition the taxpayers are loaded own to the gills with local taxes, service taxes, property taxes, business taxes, income taxes, and now Obamacre penalties or pay for insurance that won’t cover one damn thing until you pay huge out of pocket expenses. We are being reamed by the gov already and the damn politicians are all selling their souls and our future for 30 pieces of silver in the form of donations, earmarks, and endowments.
Free education, free school lunches,free medical care, free legal representation. Multiply that when they start breeding.
Once again a demonrat shows it’s firm grasp of economics and logical thinking.................................NOT!
They want the system to crash so they can be there to offer their solutions and further enslave the populace.
Why are they to be turned over to American families? I thought their worthless parents who ran off and left them were already here?
Until taxpayers paid the 8K+ per school slot, their next ER visit, their WIC payments, the birth of their next sibling, etc.
> Then why is Obama requesting more money? Stupid Democrats!
After doing some research into the matter I think he wants the funds to pay for transportation for even more illegals, the goodies he’s promised them, payoffs ....er uh..donations to politicians to house them, and bribe money for the pro-amnesty politicians he’s paid off to side with him, plus a little pocket change to skim the top off...
Schools, medical care, recreational facilities, social services,.......
I’m still waiting for a progressive’s explanation for how unlimited illegal immigration is beneficial to the environment.
Is this something the Sierra Club supports?
IF is a big word! I guess transportation is free along with a bed, roof, and 3 squares until they reach destination?
To pay the $7,000 tax free stipend to those who take in an adult illegal immigrant, or the $6,000 for those willing to take in the unaccompanied illegal minors?
I know someone who is conservative, but when it comes to money...that person who is totally against the foreign invasion told me, "Ive thought about it. I could take three or four, and be getting 18 to $24,000 a month tax free. I'd even learn Spanish for that kind of dough."
the courts, the policing, the public housing, the disability payments, the extra Spanish teachers and translators, sanitation for all the demonstrations, the cost of the warehousing, complete care costs while they are being warehoused (clothing, personal supplies, food, medicine, toys, games), counselors, psychotherapy for when they go bonkers in these places . . .
Allowing lawbreaking has consequences.
Can anyone tell us exactly (or even close), the number of kids who actually have families already here in the U.S.?
From what I have deciphered, there seems to be one hell of a lot of teen males who have found their way into the “childrens” line of illegal’s.
They are using the demonization of Republicans to force us into a corner: If we don't show enough "caring," we look like meanies. They are using that in every way they can to get their own way. We are in a lose-lose. It doesn't really matter how many are not children.
I think you’re correct. I’ve read those too - not sure if it’s a trial balloon or something he’s considering (the latter wouldn’t surprise me with this Admin).
I’m a little confused - -on one hand there are threads and reports that the Feds will pay up to $7,400 to take in an “immigrant child” (aka illegal alien) and OTOH I’ve read threads that say that once they are placed with a “family” or “sponsor”, then they are the state’s responsibility to pay for their care. Either way, us taxpayers get hit, but is it the Feds or the states or both.
On other threads, there was mention of Somalis coming in to a NE state (IIRC it was MA), they were only going to get help for 3 months. Wonder if all these “loving” families and “sponsors” that are taking these poor “children” in will only get paid for three months (rhetorical - we know they won’t).
They’re not checking legal status of the “family members” and “sponsors”. IMHO they should be doing so then sending the entire family back to their place of origin so they can be reunited there.
It’s the education costs that kill. Oh, on top of housing/medical care/food, etc. But to educate, or try to educate these kids, or just to have them in schools, costs at least 3x what it costs for the native-born English speaking student. They (almost all) require services beyond language. Sorry, Mr. McGovern, that COSTS. \
And, if the relatives they’re staying with are also illegally here, they don’t own a home on which they’re paying taxes, and as likely as not, are not only not paying real estate taxes, they are not paying income tax, and are, instead, receiving benefits.
How in the hell do people like this get elected to Congress? We need an investigation!
The type people that are incoming are not the American spirited idfustrious types. Once they latch onto the American teat they will cry and bring over more to support and they will be permanently fixated. I believe those that orchestrated this little Cloward - Piven maneuver were fully aware of tht. Obama has been given a script and a fat paycheck while Jarrett and her 36 staff picked white man hater buddies are trying to put the fix in. Why do you think he plays so much golf and acts so unconcerned about everything. When he gets up to the mic to talk about a “crisis” he does the same thing everytime; expresses faux anger, shifts the blame to the GOP, criticizes them and says he has some type of fix (almost always done by the hands of Jarrett) then storms off like we interrupted his golfing game...
How do they know the people getting the kids are who they say they are?
Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Havana).
Democrats are crazy, authoritarian, utopian, and corrupt, for starters.
I totally agree! Couldn’t have said it better myself :-)
> Democrats are crazy, authoritarian, utopian, and corrupt, for starters.
I wonder how much this administration is spending on payoffs on the immmigration issue. The amount must be staggering. I’ve never seen such treachery from politicians ever before in my life.
