On Sunday, Fox News reported that the Biden Administration spent $86 million to house illegal immigrants who broke the law to enter the U.S.

The Biden administration has awarded ICE an $86.9 million contract for hotel rooms near the border to provide temporary shelter and processing services for families who have not been expelled from the United States but have been placed in immigration proceedings for their removal.

The contract, through Texas-based nonprofit Endeavors, provides 1,239 beds and “other necessary services.” The families will receive a comprehensive health assessment, including COVID-19 testing. The announcement comes days after White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters on Thursday that the White House planned to provide 2.5 million doses of AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine to Mexico.

That’s a pretty eye-popping sum of tax payer money to spend on people who shouldn’t be here in the first place.

It is especially egregious after the manner in which this administration treated vast numbers of National Guard troops who deployed to Washington, D.C. in the days following the Capitol riot.

The Democrats used these soldiers as props to bolster their false narrative that Trump supporting extremists posed a threat to their safety. When it came to arranging proper accommodations for these men, however, they couldn’t be bothered.

Large numbers of men were forced to sleep in a cold parking garage. In addition, it was widely reported several weeks ago that troops were receiving insufficient, undercooked and even contaminated food.

At Monday’s White House press briefing, press secretary Jennifer Psaki was questioned about this unequal treatment.

Newsmax reporter Emerald Robinson brought up the $86 million payment and asked Psaki, “How can you square that with the National Guard troops, who were sleeping in parking garages … some of them got sick from having contaminated food. That’s a disparity a lot of people are pointing out. That our National Guard was treated one way and then the illegal immigrants are going to be put in hotel rooms.

Psaki, of course, said that when they became aware of the conditions, the President addressed the situation right away. Watch her try to defend the indefensible in the clip below.

Does she really believe she’s fooling anyone?

  1. The answer is: the disgusting mayor of DC REFUSED! Hotels to our national guard from several states. Let them pawn our men and women in uniform. They always do. And our good soldiers, sailers and airmen go home to tell their stories of crass treatment under demoncrats!
    There is hell to pay in our next national elections. Our GIs suffer these egregious living conditions with honorable Patriot pride. Many guard and reservists had already been exposed to horrible overseas conditions through countless deployments starting with POTUS Johnson, paused several several years until the Bush two never ending war in Southwest Asia pressed them back into overseas duty.
    Yet, to be humiliated in low quarters, poisoning through local rations, held in contempt by the very cowards in congess in our own nation’s capitol is a new low, even for the putrefied commycrats in power.
    This blog site maybe the only source of relevant and timely discourse that exists today!
    Veterans know they are being condescended to versus spit upon as in the 1970s. It’s a new PC propaganda the left holds so dear to control a few idiots of or in the military.
    We greater numbers are not fools. We serve at the pleasure of idiots to maintain Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness for our nation and other Freedom Loving people.
    The disgusting elements of tyranny can abuse us, until real American Leadership shows up and we show off. Then, Nelly bar the door. All hell will rain down on they that in comfort suppose their tyranny won; both domestic and foreign.
    We have taken oaths to support and defend the Constitution. Not commycrats, globalists, oligarchs, leftists, rightists, et al.
    By the millions: Don’t Tread on Us!!!
