Let me get this straight, $3,700,000,000 for 91,000 illegal immigrants, is that right? That's a cost of $40,659.34 per illegal immigrant.

Where the $3.7bn will go
$1.8bn to provide the appropriate care for unaccompanied children
$1.1bn on detention and removal programmes
$433m on border patrol and security
$300m to Central American countries to repatriate and tackle root causes
$64m on immigration courts, including hiring 40 additional judge teams

The administration has told Congress it was seeking "additional authority" to allow the Homeland Security secretary to more quickly return the minors back home.
But immigration advocates fear this means children would lose the automatic right to a hearing before an immigration judge, and instead would have to go through an initial screening with US Border Patrol.
I wonder why these reasons for the money are requested now? They clearly knew the problems were coming since last year when the increased number of people started. and when they were soliciting for transportation in January.
WASHINGTON, D.C. — The unaccompanied children from Central American crossing the U.S.-Mexico border illegally should be deported except in extreme circumstances, according to House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer.
“We have an immediate humanitarian crisis that confronts this country, we also have a crisis in terms of this country cannot continue to absorb, nor should it, a limitless number of people who — particularly children who want to cross our border,” Hoyer told reporters Tuesday.
According to the Democratic whip the influx is unsustainable in the U.S.

Hold the phone!
If they have 'family' here.
Where is the pressing 'need' to blow 3.7 billion dollars on them eh ?
Typical White House.
Never letting a good crisis go to waste to blow our money.
To pay for everything that is required to process them, to firm up the border - you do want more patrols don't you?? to have more judges to process them faster ......
Yeah - how dare they try and solve the problem with measures that you have been calling for!
Well let's not do anything about it then - I'm sure that will solve everything
Hell a terrorist could drive nukes across it, and park them anywhere they wanted too, and Washington would be none the wiser.
Until they went off.
Considering that this administration has seemed to do everything in it's power to tear the country apart your thought doesn't seem that farfetched to me.
