Newly Opened Facility For Migrant Children Expected To Cost Up To $300 Million

3

A newly opened “temporary” facility to house unaccompanied migrant children could cost up to $300 million and stay open through January 2020, the Trump administration says.

The Carrizo Springs facility in Texas officially opened June 30, and currently houses about 225 children. It is eventually expected to hold up to 1,300, which would make it one of the largest facilities for unaccompanied minors in the country, according to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

The Carrizo facility is run by the non-profit firm BCFS, which HHS will pay $50 million for its first 60 days of operation, according to recent federal filings. Supplemental funding of up to $250 million will be paid if the facility is open through Jan. 31, 2020.

  1. Why not use that money to deport the illegal migrants and set up facilities to educate and train them so they can build up the economy in their own country and raise their own countrys standard of living!!!

  2. .-over $3,700 per kid per day to host them? Does this make any sense? Wht are they giving them that costs so much money? Send them back in a plane with $1,000 pocket money and it will be cheaper!
    This doesn’t make any sense whatsoever!
