Now that it appears a budget settlement has been reached to further fund the US Government (one Trillion to last until September), many are asking why this money is being almost completely controlled by the Democrats. It seems that almost $3 Billion will be used on refugees and migrant resettlement programs.
This comes at a time when there are American Veterans still homeless, millions live below the poverty line, and money can’t be found for building Trump’s Border Wall.
The MSM is already gloating over the spending lists, while those that supported Donald Trump are asking themselves if he will break hois campaign promises.
As reported in the Daily Caller:
An agreement on the omnibus budget was reached by leaders from both parties Sunday, as a government shutdown looms on Friday. The proposed spending agreement includes no money to construct the president’s border wall, and continues funding Planned Parenthood.
Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, a member of the House Freedom Caucus, said on CNN Monday that he thinks “you’re going to see a lot of conservatives be against this plan this week.”
The bill would include a total of $3 billion towards migration and refugee assistance, which is roughly the same that was spent in Fiscal Year 2016. It would also include $50 million towards the emergency refugee and migration assistance fund, which is also the same amount spent in the previous fiscal year.
