It goes back to that old American adage: “Bitch, someone has got to feed these kids.”
When the Pilgrims first arrived on these shores hundreds of years ago, they looked at the Indians and said “bitch, someone has got to feed these kids.” That’s the story of the first Thanksgiving, when the Indians agreed to provide free food, medical care, and housing to whites.
It’s who we are.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is overseeing 5.7 million migrants in the US — who could soon be provided free medical services, food and even housing by the Biden administration, The Post has learned.
The record number of non-detained migrants being monitored by the federal agency — 2.4 million more than before Biden became president — was buried in paperwork detailing its “Release and Reporting Management” (RRM) program.
The plan is for vendors to join ICE’s monitoring of migrants through ankle monitors, phone apps and in-person check-ins.
However, the initiative also aims to provide a range of other perks to the non-citizens on the taxpayers’ dime.
The program would cost “billions” and effectively be a “welfare” program for non-detained migrants awaiting court dates, former ICE director Tom Homan told The Post.
“The RRM is just a push by the open border advocates to provide welfare benefits to 6 million people,” the former ICE director continued.
RRM is anticipated to “replace all of ICE’s non-detained programs” and would “apply to the entire non-detained docket,” a question-and-answer form ICE published in September reads, clarifying: “The current non-detained docket is 5.7M.”
Those held in ICE detention for processing at the border or in facilities awaiting deportation are not included in the 5.7 million figure.
The services for “all RRM participants” would include “legal assistance; psychosocial services; therapeutic services; medical services; food and clothing banks; housing; public transportation information; parental information; education information; and repatriation and reintegration services,” according to the RFI form published Aug. 17.
“These services are designed to increase participant compliance with immigration obligations through information, stabilization, and support. Services will be individualized to each participant’s needs and may range from basic referrals to intensive direct assistance,” the RFI form reads.
Homan criticized the program for providing legal assistance to migrants who crossed over the border.
“They’re going to give legal assistance to illegal aliens at the taxpayers’ expense to fight the government,” he said. All the services combined are a “massive giveaway that are going to cost billions of dollars.”
It’s no problem.
We have plenty of billions of dollars.
