Biden Spending $60M Each Week on Unaccompanied Minor Illegals

'HHS is committed to ensuring all unaccompanied children referred to our custody are cared for appropriately...'

President Joe Biden‘s administration has spent $60 million per week to care for over 16,000 minor children at the border, the Washington Post reported.

Biden’s Department of Health and Human Services, which provides housing for illegal immigrants, expects weekly costs to rise significantly over the coming months.

With the crisis worsening over recent weeks, President Biden has done little to curb the inflow of illegal immigrants.

Further, he and the mainstream media have refused to call the immigration disaster a “crisis,” despite the record number of illegal immigrants crossing the border daily.

The massive influx of illegals has overwhelmed U.S. Border Patrol and county police.

In response to the spike in immigrants and the U.S. government’s inability to house the illegals, county sheriffs have called the border “basically open.

In an attempt to deal with the crisis, Biden’s administration has spent a fortune to set up ten emergency facilities, creating 16,000 additional beds for the migrant children.

The cost to build and fund the emergency sites is over 2.5 times higher than keeping illegals in existing buildings.

The additional cost is due to “the need to develop facilities quickly and hire significant staff over a short period of time,” said Kenneth Wolfe, an HHS spokesman.

According to Wolfe, the average daily cost per child is “approximately $775 per day based on past experience.”

By September, the government projects that 22,000 to 26,000 unaccompanied minors will cross the border each month, all of them requiring HHS care.

Despite the border mess, Wolfe expressed confidence in the government’s ability to house and support the illegals.

“HHS is committed to ensuring all unaccompanied children referred to our custody are cared for appropriately,” Wolfe said. “To do so, we make every effort to ensure funds are used as effectively as possible to provide safe shelter and adequate services and that costs are contained to the degree possible.”
