Border crisis: Manufactured by Biden Administration | Eastern North Carolina Now

United States taxpayers are being milked of money that the United Nations (UN) and other agencies are spending to aid illegals in crossing the U.S. borders. Based on available government spending data, more than $1 billion in funding from the government has been granted to agencies assisting migrants.

“We are actually funding our own border crisis,” Todd Bensman, a senior national security fellow at the Center for Immigration Studies, an anti-mass migration think tank. “And it’s provided by, ultimately, the United States taxpayer.”

Before President Joe Biden’s term as president, America shelled out around $500 million per year to the UN’s main migration arm, the International Organization for Migration (IOM). But beginning in the Biden administration, the funding skyrocketed to nearly $1.3 billion in 2023. This amount is more than double what it had been under former President Donald Trump’s administration, as per USASpending.gov.

As per government spending data, most of the money comes from the Department of State and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). A total of $547 million over two years ending in 2023 has also been voluntarily contributed to IOM from the Population, Refugees and Migration, which is under the State Department.

Moreover, the UN’s “Regional Refugee and Migrant Response Plan” update for 2024 is requesting $1.6 billion to be distributed to 17 Latin American and Caribbean countries. It is also receiving U.S. grants and has been allocated $372 million in cash and vouchers and “multipurpose cash assistance” during 2024 for 624,300 migrants in Central and South America who are headed for the U.S. border.

Migrants also directly receive cash, or what the UN emergency manual calls “cash in envelopes,” and they know that the U.S. border is wide open. According to the U.S. House Committee on Homeland Security, there had been 6.2 million encounters at the southern border, in addition to 1.7 million known gotaways since Biden took office. “They say, ‘Well, you know, we’re coming now because Biden’s letting us in,'” Bensman said.

Bensman, who has been at the forefront of investigating the causes of the migrant surge, found that IOM and other nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) helping migrants make the dangerous trek from South and Central America. Workers at an IOM migrant camp in Reynosa, Mexico, in 2021 told him that families of four were receiving about $800 per month on a debit card. His viral post on X noted long lines of migrants waiting to receive the cards. (Related: Speaker Johnson reveals 64 instances Biden where sabotaged border security and encouraged illegal migration.)

Republicans propose bill to defund UN’s illegal immigration operations

Even sanctuary city mayors have been crying for help and admitting that their local government funding and services are at breaking points due to the worsening migrant crisis at the United States border.

Because of this, the GOP lawmakers took the liberty to reintroduce legislation that would eliminate UN migrant funding. H.R. 6166, the “Tax Dollars for the UN’s Immigration Invasion Act,” would prohibit contributions to the IOM and the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, as well as the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East.

Moreover, the said bill requires the Government Accountability Office (GAO) to conduct an audit of all federal funding previously appropriated to UN agencies that have financed the migrant crisis to force repayment of that funding to the U.S. Treasury.

UN agencies are “financing the ongoing U.S. border crisis,” Rep. Lance Gooden (R-TX) said in a Jan. 26 statement. “The United Nations is using our own tax dollars against us, and U.S. policymakers can no longer stand by while elites in the UN and Davos actively finance an invasion of our sovereign territory. It’s time to say enough and cut off funding to these corrupt globalist institutions until respect for our territorial integrity and appreciation for our generosity is restored.”

When President Trump is reelected, one of his first executive orders should be to transfer every penny we now give the UN and its agencies to building the border wall instead. The globalists at the UN are a big threat to our sovereighty and our freedom.

TROLL ALERT. Far left troll Little Bobbie writes in the Orwellian Newspeak of the left where words have different meanings that normal English. When he uses the word "true" the translation into normal English is "consistent with the leftwing narrative".

Of course Biden manufactured the border crisis. Only a far left troll would say otherwise.

Biden's 64 executive orders that thwart and weaken duly adopted US immigration laws are the source of our border problems. Grants to the UN and NGOs, some connected to liberal churchs like the United Methodists and United Church of Christ, help fund the invasion of the United States. These activities designed to undermine our immigration laws should be criminally investigated by a special grand jury and special prosecutor and the miscreants indicted and jailed. UN officials without diplomatic immunity should be among those indicted, and if they have diplomtatic immunity they should be declared persona non grata and kicked out of the US.
