ICE spends $100 million ferrying illegal immigrant children around U.S., watchdog says

The federal agency that handles deportations spent more than $100 million of its money over the last few years to ferry illegal immigrant children around the U.S., according to calculations by a watchdog group that says the cash could have been better spent on enforcement.

Government figures obtained by the Immigration Reform Law Institute through an open records request show Immigration and Customs Enforcement spent an average of $665 per juvenile in 2014, with most of that going to the cost of airplane flights to shuttle the children among government agencies, to relatives here in the U.S. or back to their home countries — if they’re deported.

At that rate, ICE will spend about $4.5 million flying just the children nabbed at the border in October, and somewhere north of $100 million since the surge began in earnest in 2014.

“It’s insult to injury on a massive scale,” said Dale Wilcox, executive director of IRLI.

There is a globalist agenda to destroy the Christian cultures of Europe and the US.
The Zionists are pitting Christians vs. Moslems in a global war, and use disinformation to do so.
There is plenty of evidence that the intelligence agencies are behind almost all of the so-called Islamic terror.

Real truth must be discerned using common sense.
It is best to distrust the MSM entirely along with these Zionist governments.
