Spending Shock! $1.6 Billion For Unaccompanied Alien Children “Disguised In Legislative Language”

Spending bills passed by Congress on Thursday night included $1.6 billion in emergency funding for the Biden administration to address the rising problem of unaccompanied minors crossing the southern border illegally.

As little attention as it deserved, the money’s placement in the law was a sign of government’s growing recognition of how serious the situation has become.

To help Health and Human Services shelter and locate sponsors for the thousands of migrant youngsters, the money will be used.


A total of $1.6 billion was “hidden in legislative wording,” according to Rob Law, the Center for Immigration Studies’ director of regulatory relations and policy.

$1.6 billion is allocated to a “account designated and for the activities specified in section 141 of this Act,” according to the text. Congress enacted the first stopgap budget package in late September, which provided a $2.5 billion financial infusion, with Section 141 included in it.

As a result of this, Congress has now forced to push $4.1 billion to HHS in less than two months in order to accommodate the influx of unaccompanied illegal immigrant adolescents.

Children from non-contiguous nations, or “Unaccompanied Alien Children,” are considered exceptional border cases and must be immediately moved out of Homeland Security’s custody into the custody of HHS.

This year saw a record increase in the number of UACs, which overwhelmed the authorities.

HHS had over 22,000 UACs in its shelters last spring at one point.

Only about 11,000 people were left by the end of the month. However, it has since risen sharply, and as of Wednesday, it was hovering around the 13,000 mark.

Every day, hundreds of UACs arrive.

HHS isn’t the only government institution feeling the strain of the Biden era’s immigration crisis. It’s a record year for illicit activity at the border, according to Customs and Border Protection.

CBP, on the other hand, has not gotten any more funding.

The legal immigration branch of Homeland Security, US Citizenship and Immigration Services, received hundreds of millions of dollars in financing from Congress in September to deal with an increase in refugee cases.

Democratic lawmakers are rewarding open border policies at taxpayer expense by giving HHS $1.6 billion for the undocumented aliens (UACs) the Obama administration enticed to enter the country illegally instead of providing CBP with the resources they require, according to former USCIS official Michael Law.

Additionally, $7 billion was allocated to the Biden administration to bring in additional Afghan refugees and to process, release and care for the approximately 70,000 refugees who have already arrived in the United States.

Liberals celebrated the funds as a further demonstration of America’s commitment to those who contributed to its two-decade long military campaign in Iraq and Afghanistan.

At a time when Congress is still trying to find out who was left behind, who was evacuated, and what is happening to them now, Republicans claim that the no-strings funding was lost.

The additional $7 billion will go toward the evacuation operation, which had received a $6 billion budget in September. Previously, Homeland Security officials were required to prepare a report detailing how the money was spent. The document was due on Nov. 30th.

Democrat Sen. James Lankford of Oklahoma claimed the administration had not met the deadline for a response.


When we granted DHS $6 billion, we told them: ‘This money is going to be allocated for you.'” We just need to know to whom and for what purposes it will be allocated.’ Not unreasonable at all, he thought. As if that wasn’t bad enough, we’re handing DHS an additional $7 billion in funding tonight.” Is there anyone else who thinks this is a problem?

As for the UAC funding request, Mr. Lankford said the administration has already taken money from the coronavirus fund and had since received more than $4 billion in additional funding.

“May I remind you how enormous a sum that is, an additional $4 billion,” he said Thursday in a floor address.
