Obama wants to spend $3.7 Billion dollars providing them legal aid and welfare (housing, food, transportation). [And a little bit for border security thrown in as window-dressing].
That works out to almost $65,000 per border-jumper.
Wouldn’t it be cheaper just to give them $10,000 in cash and send them home? $10K could get you a pretty good life in Honduras or Guatemala. Just make them offer, “You can take the money and go home, or you can stay here in a detention center until we relocate you to an inner city in a red or purple state.”
Can’t see the politicians going for this plan; it would be hard for them to vote Democrat from Honduras or Guatemala.
