Child Border Crossers Have Higher Standard of Living than 13M Impoverished American Children
Breitbart ^ | 16 Jun 2018 | John Binder

Migrant children who cross into the United States either alone or with adults have a higher standard of living once they are put into federal care than the more than 13 million American children who are living in poverty across the country.

In Fiscal Year 2017, the federal government referred nearly 41,000 unaccompanied minor border crossers to the Unaccompanied Alien Children program which is facilitated by the Office of Refugee Resettlement.

Data provided to Breitbart News reveals that each unaccompanied minor costs the federal government about $34,660 annually. This is a higher standard of living per child than the roughly 13 million American children who continue to live below the U.S. poverty line.

In 2016, there were about 13.2 million American children under the age of 18 living in poverty. These are U.S. children, for example, whose parents or guardians –in a household of four — earn less than $24,500 a year.

This annual income for an impoverished American family is $10,000 less than the more than $34,500 in federal funds which are spent on each unaccompanied minor border crosser.

OUR Congress cares more about fraudulently documented foreigners than it does the citizens of the USA.

This is exactly what we need to shove back in their face if they want to make this a campaign issue- they overreach again!

The Congress critters are only there because the American public voted them into office. If the Americans are ok with their money being spent on things other than their children and country then so be it. Otherwise, vote the jerks out of office.

IMHO most Americans don’t know and don’t care about what happens in DC.

Liberals will side with MS13 against Americans.

With corrupt FBI agents taking bribes against the American people.

But because most of the 13 million American children are white and the illegal immigrant children are mostly brown, leftists only care about illegals.

Leftists are the most racist people among us.
