The Small Business Administration does not give out direct help for those who want to start a small business in the United States. In fact, only one class of people are eligible for that direct assistance. Can you guess who those people are? Illegal aliens. Yes, even though you pay your taxes every year, you are ineligible for the direct assistance if you want to start a business. Unfair? Yes. There’s a lot of that going on in the Obama Administration these days.
That’s the bad news. Want the worse news? The only illegal aliens eligible for this free money paid from your tax dollars are illegal aliens who have been deported to El Salvador. That means that money won’t even benefit the US economy. That makes the money reparations for enforcing US law and a massive redistribution of wealth to Central and South American countries.
As part of an ongoing project he calls The Waste Report, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., has called attention to these outlays, which are made by an obscure federal agency called the Inter-American Foundation (IAF).
Housed in a non-descript building a few blocks from the White House, IAF is spending up to $50,000 annually to help Salvadorans sent back to El Salvador to “reintegrate” into their communities, under the idea that doing so will make them less likely to seek to return to the United States.
IAF works through a local NGO called INSAMI, which stands for Instituto Salvadoreño del Migrante and which estimates that 500 Salvadorans are deported from the U.S. to El Salvador each week. The group says the IAF funds assist sixty Salvadorans a year, “including deportees,” by helping to “facilitate their reintegration into their communities and support their enterprises.” This is accomplished by “offering financial education, technical advice and assistance with business plans,” all of which serves, in turn, to “assure that broader support and resources are available to the migrants, that their abilities are appreciated, their concerns understood and their needs met.”
IAF did not respond to Fox News’ requests for comment.
