Federal Emergency Administration Company (FEMA), beneath the guise of humanitarian concern, has enacted the “Shelter and Companies Program,” funneling $363.8 million of taxpayers’ cash within the fiscal yr 2023 to non-federal entities, claiming to assist the U.S. Customs and Border Safety within the “secure, orderly, and humane launch” of unlawful immigrants.
“The Shelter and Companies Program gives funds to non-federal entities that present sheltering and different eligible providers to noncitizen migrants who’ve been encountered by the Division of Homeland Safety and launched from custody whereas awaiting the end result of their immigration proceedings,” FEMA stated within the news release.
This system may appear to be a needed step in addressing the continued immigration disaster, a better look reveals a disconcerting actuality. It’s akin to treating the signs of a illness reasonably than the illness itself.
The federal authorities seems to be pouring sources into managing the inflow of immigrants after their arrival reasonably than investing adequately in preventive measures to handle the foundation of the immigration situation.
Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) evaluation reveals over 5.5 million unlawful aliens have crossed our borders since Biden took workplace.
“Some 2.7 million migrants—those that illegally entered or have been in any other case inadmissible at a port of entry—have been encountered at our borders in FY 2022, bringing the entire beneath President Biden to a whopping 5.5 million. One factor is evident: These record-breaking numbers are a direct consequence of open-borders insurance policies carried out by Homeland Safety Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and the one who appointed him, President Joe Biden,” charged Stein.
Facilitating the disaster looks like a blatant act of contrition, the acknowledgment of an avoidable catastrophe that has not solely jeopardized the nation’s nationwide safety however has additionally positioned a major pressure on public sources. This doesn’t mirror an administration working in the very best pursuits of its residents.
The truth that FEMA claims the funds will probably be used to “offset allowable prices incurred for providers related to noncitizen migrant arrivals of their communities” misses the bigger level. It’s a band-aid resolution for an issue requiring surgical procedure.
Efficient immigration coverage ought to give attention to reforming the system reasonably than merely responding to issues as they come up. The Biden regime, sadly, does extra of the latter and fewer of the previous.
