Hard-working American taxpayers will be happy to learn that their tax dollars are being lavishly spent to care for illegal aliens who claim they are transgender. In fact, ICE spends more than $250 million a year on medical care and hormone drugs for these trans aliens.
Those expenses do not include the cost of housing, feeding, and providing legal services to transgender ICE detainees.
The costs also do not include the billions of dollars spent every year on welfare benefits, healthcare, and education for the over 12 million (non-transgender) illegals currently in the country.
Keep in mind that illegal aliens are not even supposed to be in the country in the first place.
But you — the U.S. taxpayer — are taking care of illegal aliens’ every need, even as homelessness and poverty among lawful American residents and U.S. citizens continue to climb.
ICE spends $250 million a year on medical care for trans illegals
New Mexico is home to the only ICE detention facility in the United States that specifically caters to transgender women (i.e., biological men who identify as women). It opened in 2017, presumably under policies pushed by Barack Obama.
There are 400 illegal aliens being detained at the Cibola County Correctional Center in Milan, New Mexico. Of those, 27 are transgender, KFox 14 reported.
Transgender detainees are given medical care and treatment, and ICE provides hormones to trans illegal aliens who are transitioning.
“I can tell you that it’s not cheap,” said Corey Price, an ICE field officer director in Texas. “We invest a significant amount into our medical. We spend $250 million a year as an agency on the medical costs alone for those who are detained in our custody.”
ICE plans to open more transgender centers around the US
The transgender ICE detention center in New Mexico has an entertainment room, where trans detainees watch television and relax. There’s also an outdoor recreational space and a hair salon so the illegal aliens can look their best while lounging around the facility.
The facility also offers classes to help the illegal aliens look more feminine, “so that your femininity is more apparent to someone looking at you and questioning your gender.”
ICE field officer Corey Price says the federal agency worked very hard to accommodate transgender illegals: “We had a constant challenge trying to find suitable accommodations for the transgender population, so we stood this up a couple of years ago, and it’s been very successful.”
ICE is planning to open more transgender-centric detention facilities in areas closer to larger cities.
‘Giving fashion tips to men who dress like women who snuck into our country illegally’
Fox News host Tucker Carlson was outraged by the left’s prioritization of illegals above U.S. citizens and lawful residents.
“Giving fashion tips to men who dress like women who snuck into our country illegally is a priority for the [left-wing] federal bureaucracy,” Carlson said. “They’re happy to spend a lot of your money doing it.”
Tucker continued: “Meanwhile, for American citizens, things get steadily worse. Life expectancy declines, half a million people sleep on the streets every night, and heroin addicts line the streets of our once-great cities. But at least the federal government can pay for specialized detention centers for transgender migrants in New Mexico.”
Carlson added: “That’s not all. 30 million Americans don’t have health insurance, and millions more pay way more than they can afford for health insurance. But transgender migrants don’t have to worry about that at all. They get all the free healthcare they want that includes mental health services and dental. Can you afford dental insurance? If not, you might want to seek asylum. It could be worth it for the amenities alone.”

Transgenders comprise less than one-half of 1% of US population
It’s very trendy among leftists to screech about transgender rights even though they make up a minuscule portion of the U.S. population.
As reference, there are 328 million people in the United States. Of that, about 1.4 million people (or 0.4%) identify as transgender, as BizPac Review has reported. That’s less than one-half of 1% of the entire U.S. population.
But if you look at mainstream media, you might be fooled into believing that transgender individuals comprise a far larger percentage of the U.S. population, wouldn’t you?
