These social costs are a very different thing from the strictly monetary costs of resettlement. We need to fly them here. House them. Feed them. Hire people as translators. (Lots of those.) Provide medical care. Provide language training. Hire lots and lots of new social workers to help them navigate the system of social programs. Business for new government jobs will be booming! The unions must be salivating over the potential dues.
We have early reports of how much it costs to settle each refugee here. Each refugee and asylum seeker, according to the Federal Budget, costs just shy of $20k. Yes, I said “each”. And that’s just to help him land here. Welfare, food, shelter, medicine? Those are different figures entirely.
Amazing how a government careening toward bankruptcy has somehow found itself so much money to fund this massive resettlement project.
That must mean they have enough money for other priorities, too. Like fixing the Department of Veterans’ Affairs. If they have this much money to throw around on people who (in many cases) don’t even need it, and are just gaming the system where is the money needed to help disabled veterans?
Like I said. Show me your checkbook and I’ll show you what you love. Veterans do NOT make that list for Obama. For him, courage is telling the world where you go looking for an orgasm. Not in running toward the threats that others run from, whether first responders at home or the military abroad. But if you want them to lop off your schlong, the VA has cash for that!
Here are some dirty little secrets that Obama won’t tell you. Something Canadian journalists at TheRebel.media have been talking about for awhile.
First, “all but a tiny fraction of these ‘refugees’ were already living in cities in neighboring countries. For years. The whole thing was a trick. A lie.” (Most of the refugee claimants are fake.)
Second, when the resettlement process was run by government agencies instead of private family sponsors, it went horribly, horribly wrong. Those immigrants actually complained that they wanted to go back to their countries of origin.
This issue even came up in an interview with Rosanne Barr. Her answer might surprise you:
“I think we would be so lucky if Trump won,’ the 67-year-old Roseanne star told THR on the eve of the California primary. “Because then it wouldn’t be Hillary.”
“When a president can just pass laws all on his own, that is a little bit different than what America was supposed to be about,” Barr explained. “And Trump is saying people will have to be vetted, we’ll have to have legal immigration. It’s all a scam. I mean illegal immigration. When people come here and they get a lot of benefits that our own veterans don’t get. What’s up with that?”
This is yet another case where an adult in authority needs to step up and tell Obama “No. You can’t do that. You are a President, not a king.”
And if you have any doubt that Hillary will simply be the Third term of this Obama Administration, you simply haven’t been paying attention.
