White House Dictates: $3.8 Billion Needed To Stem The Surge Of Immigrants

Tyler Durden's picture


At almost double the $2 billion that many had expected, The Washington Post reports that The White House will request $3.8 billion from Congress in emergency funding to deal with an influx of unaccompanied minors from Central America. Funds would be allocated to send more immigration judges to the southern border, build additional detention facilities and add border patrol agents, to help stem the recent surge of women and children from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras.


Source: Legal Regulation Review


As The Washington Post reports,

The White House on Tuesday will request $3.8 billion from Congress in emergency funding to deal with an influx of unaccompanied minors from Central America, a far higher amount that the Obama administration had previously signaled, according to a Capitol Hill source familiar with the plans.




Funds would be allocated to send more immigration judges to the southern border, build additional detention facilities and add border patrol agents, said the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the administration had not formally made the request.


The move is aimed at more quickly deporting the tens of thousands of women and children who have entered the country illegally across the souther border, most of them in the Rio Grande Valley in Texas.




Administration officials had previously said that they would be requesting more than $2 billion to help stem the recent surge of women and children from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. More than 52,000 unaccompanied minors and 39,00 women with children have been apprehended on the southern border this year, far more than in past years.

Bloomberg breaks down the allocation:

Supplemental request for FY14 would support U.S. response to high rate of children, individuals from Central America crossing border in Rio Grande Valley, according to White House fact sheet.

• HHS would receive $1.8b to care for unaccompanied children, maintain services for refugees
• DHS would receive $1.1b for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, $433m for Customs and Border Protection
• $300m would go to State Dept for repatriation, assistance to Central American govts, media campaign to inform U.S. policy, deter attempts at border crossing
• Justice Dept would get $64m for legal support, faster immigration court proceedings
• President Obama separately seeking $615m for USDA for wildfire suppression, White House officials say on conference call with reporters

Who will be blamed for this? Who will be lambasted for not signing off on the funding? We await the next press conference with President Obama surrounded by starving and wretched immigrant children standing 'Oliver-like' demanding 'moar'...

Its all good, when TSHTF they can lead the hungry hordes on to the greener pastures of Latin America.  "Come, this way!"

Alternatively, I have for some time predicted the US would undergo a sort of 'balkanization', a taste of the former Yugoslavia right here in North America.

Amazing, they want more money, don't these mofos already get payed a salary to do a job.  Its not like they dont get a paycheck and are forced to stay at home.  The Russians after the Soviet collapse were going to work day in and day out without gettting payed FOR MONTHS because they loved their country and didnt want to see it disintegrate.

This fuckin govt only knows how to spend and do nothing.  Like a high priced trophy wife.  Useless!!!

Please, these "toddlers" are all tatted up and shit. More like Baby Finster from the Bugs Bunny days. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HONT41B5KLk

If an American family took a toddler and flung them across a harsh desert to be left to their own devices, Obama would drone kill them, CPS services would seize the children and all assets and they would be put in jail(even after being droned since the state would want money for incarceration).

If the KKK or Aryan Nation types stepped up and talked trash, the media would demand that state be boycotted and ridiculed into oblivion. When the La Raza cunts do it, it's soooo romantic.

Last end run of the Cloward-Pivens strategy people. Wake the fuck up. Shit is beyond real at this point. This President is authorizing lethal force against his own citizens to protect terrorists. And Congress does what?! Nada mis amigos, nada.

There is no more civilitiy in the United States, no more rational debate of differences. My whole life I wondered how the Nazis, being the dumb fucks that they were, could rise to power -- well I'm living it in the USA with the OBammy crew of fascists. Absofuckinglutely sickening.

TPTB have won. Americans are nothing but little millenial metro sexual pussies led by John "Play for the Loss" Boehner, Paul "Check out my P90x biceps bitchez" Ryan, and John "Hey Lindsey can you shake my dick I sort of can't reach" McCain.

Four chan, it would also be cheaper if we let their home countries PAY the return shipping, even if it comes from funds that we GIVE them. It would still be better than additional funding. Check out these $ ammounts from 2011.

The whole border issue is such a boondoggle mess it pisses me off. I was talking about this last night with another guy from Texas (who used to work near the border).

When the US government can spend literally trillions on shitistan, crapistan, turdistan, etc, but can't manage to deal with foreign organized criminals on our borders, it is a sad state of affairs. Most young men and women join the military because they love their country but quickly realize they have to follow orders from their government.

Personally, I would like to see our vets come home and secure our Southern border instead. Then this wouldn't be a problem, we would be more secure, and we could focus on our existential problems ... at home.

But, instead I suspect we will just give the foreign organized criminals a hall pass, send a few extra automatic rifles, and train their elite soldiers. When this goes to shit, life in the border states is gonna be rough for a while.

You're missing the point.

As the lead thug in V For Vendetta said: "Make them remember why they need us."

The purpose of all this immigration kerfuffle is to make Team Red remember why they need BigGuv.

All else is the march of the pawns.

Indeed.  The red team (which I was once a faithful member of) are advocating the government stop illegal immigration.  Why is it illegal?  Because of a government drawn line in the dirt.

I think border security was never really in doubt as a requirement of gov.  All Obama did was prove he was criminally incompetent.  The left will only own this problem if they decide to own it by defending the WH.  This is all coming from one person's mistakes right now...Obama.

I am not saying I buy into the right left paradigm.  But clearly this was rogue behavior that transcends it.

Eventually the right left paradigm will break down into every man for himself.  Not saying we are there yet.  But, cracks are bound to form and from them will result more than the usual bullshit.

Obama has abused the Presidency so profoundly now that congress simply does not know what to do to save thier own asses.  Outstanding comedy.  Wish I was a fly on the wall in some of the chambers.

Border security means protecting the illegal crossers from those who would stop them.   On CBS news this morning (the wife watches it) they showed them comming across in busses and when they get off the bus there are welcomming committees to make sure they feel at home.  You didn't think they brought those kids across through the desert did you?  The 3.8 billion will be spent on ammo to kill us dissident types.

  Elections do mean something, if only to govern the speed we decend into the abyss..  that said every elected official should be swinging from the nearest tree and if this level of outrage against the citizen doesn't drive that point home nothing will.

 "Make them remember why they need us."


What a beautiful, symetrical strategy.  BOTH Teams win this way!

The Republicans claim that they are allocating money to get tough at the border and for deporting more illegals..

The Democrats claim that they are allocating money to reunite families, help poor defenceless women and children, and manage the border more humanely.

It's a classic Red Team/Blue Team WIN/WIN divide and conquer political manuover designed to fake out everyone while spending crass amounts of money building up the bureaucracy and private no-bid contract corruption.  

No one who is getting paid to manage the influx will have the least interest in solving the problems and putting themselves out of work!  

Once the illegals figure out that way more than the median wage of a US Citizen is going to be spent on each and every child that gets under the wire by this administration; the influx will explode and next year everyone will scream for a larger budget...

That's meaningless also. As long as the government is handing out goodies like free schooling, medical services, food stamps, housing allotments and they're allowed to drive around without drivers licenses or forced to get auto insurance and the myriad other laws they're able to evade just cause they're migrants, they'll keep coming.

The only way is to clamp down on all social services, end the birthright clause, and start deporting all of them.

Otherwise learn to speak spanish and vote democrat.
