Budget to Transport Illegals Across USA Approaches $100M
The U.S. Senate Appropriations Subcommittee approved a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) budget for Fiscal Year (FY) 2015 that includes $5.508 billion for Immigration and Customs Enforcement operations. Included in that amount is more than $87 million for the transportation of illegal immigrants–most often via plane–from the U.S.-Mexico border to federal facilities around the nation. The FY 2015 bill summary states that the federal government will provide “$87.6 million above the request for the transportation of unaccompanied immigrant children– often via commercial or charter aircraft – from DHS custody to the legally required shelters operated by the Office of Refugee Resettlement within Department of Health and Human Services.”

Vliet alleges the Obama administration is trying to hide the serious infectious diseases being discovered by healthcare professionals who are examining the illegal alien children being housed in detention facilities across the country. Vliet says President Obama created this crisis, and she is skeptical that his administration will be held accountable because no one seems to be doing so.
