The State Department and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services are using a little-known program to allow legal Central American immigrants to bring their families into the country — all expenses paid by U.S. taxpayers.
The administration is providing free transportation and “resettlement assistance” to children — and, in certain cases, spouses and grandchildren — of immigrants from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador, according to Judicial Watch.
And in true politically correct Obama form, the agencies are no longer referring to the children as “unaccompanied alien children” but as “Central American minors.”
The program allows the immigrants to apply for refugee status, putting them on a path to citizenship. Those not eligible for refugee status can apply for parole, which will allow them to live in America legally, Judicial Watch reported.
The immigrants will have access to taxpayer-funded benefits, including food stamps, living expenses, medical care and even free education.
A total of 329 applications have been received so far, but none have been approved yet, the State Department said, according to Judicial Watch.
During a conference call this week with reporters, a State Department official touted the program but admitted that the agency has no idea how much it will cost.
But can you really put a price on fundamental transformation?
The Twitterverse was not very happy about the news.
