Looks like the accounting is revealed.

Big money spent for the children that came across the border.

Loads of contracted people places and things.

Some say this is better than what Americans get.

Alarming? or for the good of all?

Judicial Watch: Documents Reveal Obama HHS Paid Baptist Children and Family Services $182,129,786 for Four Months Housing of Illegal Alien Children



Judicial Watch announced today that on September 9, 2014, it received documents from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) revealing that the Obama administration paid Baptist Children and Family Services (BCFS) $182,129,786 to provide “basic shelter care” to 2,400 “unaccompanied alien children” (UAC) for four months in 2014. The BCFS budget included charges for $104,215,608 for UACs at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, and an additional $77,914,178 for UACs at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas.


“It is outrageous that the Obama administration spent nearly $200 million of taxpayer funds to provide illegal alien children with the types of extravagant high-tech equipment and lavish benefits many American families cannot even afford for their own children,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “And very few American workers are bringing home the $80,000 the Obama administration pays the BCFS’s Incident Management Team for just four months’ work. Obama’s lawlessness resulted in an illegal alien ‘surge‘ that has cost taxpayers tens of millions of dollars in 2014. Based on his new lawless amnesty plans, we can expect hundreds of millions more in taxpayer costs for the resulting wave of illegal aliens trying to take advantage of Obama’s illegal nullification of our nation’s immigration laws.”



Who Decides

What's "Best" ?

Lavish benefits and high tech equipment?

They were small, chain link cages with a mattress.

Judicial Watch may have just made the best example of just how disgustingly inhumane and down right greedy many Americans have become. I can't comprehend this "screw the little children" attitude. The scum of the planet, in my opinion.

That money was slated "for the children", I doubt they got much of it.

Those kids will be citizens in a few years and will be your own new generation.
It is a lot of money but come on it is the USA and everyone has to get paid.

This is the American way......the government even rips itself off for petes sake........
Since when does it cost 200,000,000 to feed and clothe 2400 kids for four lousy months???
Everybody is padding the bill for everything when it comes to tax dollars being spent.....

Child services can cost a lot.
I look after vulnerable people with learning disabilities it costs 3 k a week to care for them (Stirling).
Like I said everyone has to get paid but I agree it is a lot.
Just to add also does the figure include the start up costs? paying for houses etc?.

No worries. The Republicans are in charge now. In a few months they'll be rounding-up all these little freeloaders and dumping them back across the border. Just wait you'll see.

Might as well cut the bs and give the owners the money, without the looking after the kids bit !
Imagine if the kids was white Americans !
There would be riots !
Or would they ?

But Obama has control of all the Cabinet Departments.

How can Republicans do anything?

Great way to discourage kids from crossing the border into the US.

I bet my grandkids would love to get into that program, their father came from Guatemala originally, they could go down to Texas and say they just came in.

Actually, we wouldn't want to do that, we do not like spoiling our young by giving them expensive things. They need to learn how to earn what they want.

And the point is ?

If those 'kids' can survive thousand miles, and death trains.

People need to stop acting like their 'victims'.

If any American parent tried to pull that snip that those kids parents did ?

They would be locked up for child endangerment.

Uhhh...Where to start? Judicial watch is intellectually challenged? Doesn't know what they are looking at?..well, hell..let's start with the headline BAPTIST CHILDREN AND FAMILY SERVICES??? NOPE ..."BCFS" are these guys...www.bcfs.net...
NOT BAPTIST CHILDREN AND FAMILY SERVICES


WOW...They have no clue what those Federal Docs are outlining..

FOX from july


Editor's note: The contractor running the refugee camp at Lackland Air Force Base is "BCFS," not "Baptist Family and Children's Services" -- as noted in a previous version of this story.

ABOUT BCFS EMD

BCFS Health and Human Services' Emergency Management Division (BCFS EMD) provides all hazards preparedness consultation, incident management and full-scale emergency response support to local, state and federal agencies throughout the U.S. In addition to FEMA's whole community planning contract, BCFS EMD is also currently working with the City of Los Angeles to enhance their emergency management program to account for the whole community. This expertise is bolstered by the agency's position as a national leader in medical sheltering and - having developed FEMA's Guidance for the Integration of Functional Needs Support Services in General Population Shelters - is the foremost expert in writing and implementing equitable emergency operations programs that serve the whole community.



BCFS began its work in emergency management during the 1993 Branch Davidian incident in Waco, Texas, providing emergency sheltering for the children caught in the crossfire.

In recent years, BCFS has been part of many of the most high profile incidences experienced in the U.S. During hurricanes Katrina, Rita, Dolly, Gustav, Ike and Alex, BCFS sheltered thousands of survivors of varying ages whose pre-storm conditions ranged from no disabilities to high medical acuities. In 2008, BCFS led incident command for the Texas Department of State Health Services as part of Texas Task Force Ike - the largest mobilization of response resources in history. BCFS has also responded in sheltering and IMT
capacities for other hazards, such as widespread wildfires, the outbreak of the H1N1 Flu, and the Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints (FLDS

) compound incident.

Abroad, BCFS was called upon by the Sri Lankan government to provide emergency support after the devastating 2004 tsunami killed more than 225,000 people. The agency was also made available as a U.S. resource following the recent earthquake in Haiti, eventually deploying to gain command and control of one of the only operating hospitals near Port au Prince.

Members of BCFS EMD's Incident Management Team (IMT) have responded to every major critical incident in the U.S. in the past 12 years, including 9/11, the H1N1 flu pandemic, and countless hurricanes, tornados, fires, floods, hazardous material spills and earthquakes. Our team consists of medical and mental health experts, disability policy and rights advocates, former fire and police leaders, national emergency planning and training experts, legal professionals, academicians, research and policy professionals, and public health veterans. It also includes former department leaders from FEMA, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security


.

In addition to response, BCFS has developed the largest Alternate Care Facility (ACF

) capacity in the nation outside of the U.S. military. These sites serve as a medical surge capacity for local hospitals, medical shelters, primary triage points, designated community-focused care clinics, or points of distribution for medications or vaccinations during a public health emergency. Building ACF capacity prevents local healthcare systems from being overwhelmed with demand for services during disaster, thereby enhancing states' ability to respond.

BCFS speaks and conducts trainings regularly at state and national conferences, and serves as a consultant to jurisdictions throughout the nation regarding shelter operations, emergency preparedness and community capacity building.

The problem has always been these institutions and how they are managed. We saw the same thing with the pentagon years ago...they got a little better. We see how badly the VA is managed. Then we come on and say look what Obama did, but these institutions have been poorly managed forever. It won't get any better under the next president, even if he is a republican. We need to fundamentally change how our government institutions are run.

Gee I don't know... pass legislation that prevents it from happening? Vote to defund the program(s)? I'm sure there are numerous other backdoor approaches.

Right...in the context that the FOIA request asked for correspondence and relevant materials between "Baptist Children and Family Services" as well as BCFS. The FOIA responder included everything they had, which was just BCFS vs. Baptist Children and Family Services. Two different organizations ...Judicial Watch seems to have ...ahem...confused the two...as have many right wing outlets. Fox at least included an editors note correcting themselves.

Next..tell me why the docs include funding for Police?

Again...Judicial Watch is either confused at what they are looking at or counting on the confusion of others.
