HHS Sec. Burwell: US Lacks Funds to Host Children Crossing Mexico Border

A top health official has voiced concern that too little money is available to house the unexpectedly high numbers of unaccompanied children crossing the U.S.-Mexico Border.

In a letter obtained by the Associated Press, Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell told members of Congress' appropriations committee Friday that the agency "may face serious funding challenges in meeting the costs of accommodating the increased number of children."

The secretary says the agency hopes to avoid the situation it faced in the summer of 2014 when tens of thousands of children and families overcrowded Border Patrol shelters.

These people are not stupid...send the kids across because you know they will be taken in and then the parents demand to be admitted because they have their kids...I say build a wall and keep the door closed. There is a legal way to enter this country. This isn't it.
