Our federal government continues to bring in refugees and plans on 10,000 Syrian refugees by the end of September of this year. Don’t forget that we are still bringing in thousands upon thousands of so-called “refugees” from all over the world! Once the refugees arrive, they are given a whole bunch of freebies. This is why the US has become a global magnet for refugees who are actually economic refugees who’re just looking to upgrade their lot in life off the backs of American taxpayers. Just think about the freebies but then the school systems that foot the bill for refugee children. I could go on but this needs to end ASAP! We cannot continue to spend like this and to risk the security of other Americans.
Federal taxpayers are on the hook for nearly $20,000 just to settle each refugee and asylum seeker, who are then immediately eligible for cash welfare, food stamps, housing and medical aid, according to a new report on the “refugee industry.”
The report provided federal budget figures showing that the government spends $19,884 on each refugee the U.S. takes in.
And that number is set to jump if President Obama gets his way and brings in an additional 10,000 Syrian refugees in this year.
The report from the Negative Population Growth Inc. said that the U.S. is currently accepting about 95,000 refugees and asylees. That is in addition to the over 500,000 legal and illegal immigrants coming to the U.S.
It focused on the industry created to accept the $1.8 billion in federal support to help refugees settle and sign up for further cash awards from Uncle Sam. The refugee agencies get a small portion, or about $1,875 per refugee they help. The rest goes to the United Nations, which helps to determine eligible refugees, and state agencies.
The State Department spends about $1.28 billion, and Health and Human Services another $609 million.
