The Obama administration approved $310 million in free legal advice to young illegal immigrants despite federal law barring charging taxpayers for helping immigrants avoid deportation, according to a new report.

The Immigration Reform Law Institute said that the funding was provided to a top legal defense group to help unaccompanied alien children under the age of 18 land with a sponsor in the U.S.

In 2015 and 2016, contracts reviewed by IRLI showed that several worth $310 million went to one nonprofit legal group, the Vera Institute of Justice. A top director has ties to liberal philanthropist George Soros.

That was $310 million that could have been spent on deportations and bus tickets.

Laws?

Hussein and the enemy within recognize no law except the application of raw power

Request that he pay it back to the treasury. Take it out of his retirement annunity. Illegal conversion of federal assets. Won’t happen but would be fun to think about.

Well, if you’re going to destroy America, your foot-soldiers are going to need some financial assistance.

Thanks, Democrats! Thanks a lot!

We need to get back the money Obama spent illegally and put it towards the big, beautiful border wall.

"Obama OK’d $310 million in free legal advice to illegal immigrants"

Were undocumented Democrats advised on loopholes in immigration law, or possibly how to get away with breaking the law?

O’muslim brought them here on planes, trains, buses and automobiles. That 9 trillion had to go somewhere.

Consider that this money just passed through the nonprofit legal group to finance other Soros projects.

We know the enemies but we do not have the balls to indict prosecute and jail! Once Trump leaves office they will be back with a vengeance because we did not break their backs

This just gave me an idea. Sign an executive order that ever dollar spent on an illegal immigrant mandates an equal dollar to be spent on border wall funding. Not just for legal services but for anything including food stamps, medical care and incarceration.

If illegal immigration is such a winning proposition, then the border wall will never get funded. Otherwise . . .

Well I hope this is being stopped under Trump!

I see no indication that it is though; according to the press release linked in the article “HHS likely plans to obligate the $78 million remaining on the contracts.”

So yeah, bad on Obama. But it’s not good if Trump doesn’t stop the HHS in its apparent plans to spend the rest of the money!

Barry never cared about laws - neither did his Attorney General nor his entire administration.

Ergo Ferguson, ergo BLM, ergo "antifa".
