Your Tax Dollars at Work – ICE Detention Center More Costly Than 4 Star Hotel (Video)
The Obama administration is holding illegal aliens in ICE detention centers that cost more than 4 Star hotels.
Your tax dollars at work…
Housing illegal aliens at the largest detention center in Texas is more expensive than a four star hotel.
The Daily Mail reported:
It is also higher than the rate ($199) of a luxury King Suite at the four-star Hotel Cantessa – which boasts a rooftop pool and a gym.
The revelation has outraged a group campaigning for taxpayers’ rights who say there must be a way to detain these individuals without spending an ‘excessive’ amount of money.
And its more fodder for front-running presidential candidate Donald Trump, who is winning over Republican voters attacking the government of Mexico and outlining a plan to charge them $100,000 for every illegal immigrant who crosses the southern border.
He has attacked the Mexican government for allegedly ‘pushing’ undocumented immigrants to the U.S. to avoid dealing with them themselves.
Trump said that Mexico had been allowed to get away with the scheme because they are ‘smart’ and President Obama and his administration are ‘stupid’ – a situation which can only be fixed if he leads the charge to ‘take back our country’.
A report by the National Immigration Center suggests alternate methods to detention, including ankle monitoring bracelets, would cost the government between $17 and 17 cents a day.
The controversial center in Dilley, a town of just 3,650 people, was opened last May to accommodate an influx of families crossing the border and takes in around 40 immigrants every day.
