Friends, there are some things that I just don’t understand why people even ask or how some people could ever think that some things are alright.
Every couple of years I go on vacation with my wife to the town I grew up in. We spend a good bit of time up there, usually a week or so, and pretty much detox from everything remotely electronic. On average, I spend about five hundred dollars for a small furnished cabin outside of town that I probably turn the television on twice the whole time we are there. It’s great. Every year, I call up four months before and make the reservation.
Now, imagine if next year when I called to make the reservation I get told that there is a chance that I will have to pay for the cabins that everyone else is staying in that week. Every last person there. You would say I would have every right to be angry about that right?
The Biden administration is reportedly set to spend $86 million in taxpayer funds to purchase hotel rooms to house migrants who are coming over the United States-Mexico border in record numbers, according to Axios.
In addition to an ongoing child migrant crisis, which has exploded in previous weeks and is now overwhelming Customs and Border Protection facilities, with over 13,000 unaccompanied minor children immigrants currently in custody in reportedly deteriorating conditions, the Biden administration is struggling to manage migrant families, many of whom are seeking asylum.
The “growing numbers of migrant families trying to come to the U.S. — in addition to already overwhelming numbers of kids crossing the border without their parents or legal guardians…appear to be straining government resources,” Axios noted Sunday.
To handle the families, the Biden administration has, the outlet reports, authorized Immigration and Customs Enforcement to purchase hotel rooms near border areas in Arizona and Texas, with the idea that the rooms could be in use for months.
“The Biden administration has awarded an $86 million contract for hotel rooms near the border to hold around 1,200 migrant family members who cross the U.S.-Mexico border, DHS officials confirmed to Axios,” per the outlet. “The contract through Endeavors, a Texas-based nonprofit, is for six months but could be extended and expanded. The hotels will be near border areas, including in Arizona and Texas.”
