Federal Agency Cutting Funds for Cancer Research and Medicare, to Aid Illegal Alien Minors

President Barack Obama’s administration has transferred $167 million in just one month from programs which aid Americans to the programs which feed, house, school, and entertain a wave of illegal alien minors.

Obama’s deputies are delivering an average of 255 illegal alien minors every day to Office of Refugee Resettlement at the Department of Health and Human Service, which already has 11,200 illegals in its care as of Nov. 27. HHS is getting the money for the illegals by cutting funds from programs which benefit vulnerable Americans.

The non-partisan Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) reports that the cuts took:

  • “$14 million from the Health Resources and Services Administration, including $4.5 million from the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program and $2 million from the Maternal and Child Health program;
  • $14 million from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, for contagious disease prevention and treatment and other critical public health programs;
  • $72 million from the National Institutes of Health, for research on cancer, diabetes, drug abuse, mental health, infectious diseases and much more;
  • $8 million from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, for treatment and prevention programs;
  • $8 million from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services;
  • $39 million from the Children and Families Services Program;
  • $4 million from the Aging and Disability Services Programs;
  • $3 million from the Public Health and Social Services Emergency Fund, including more than $1 million from the Pandemic Influenza and BioShield Fund.”

Also, HHS wants Congress to provide it with another $1 billion to $2 billion by Dec. 9 to “meet our legal and humanitarian obligations” and avoid “stranding” illegal aliens at the border.

CIS found that in October alone, immigration authorities apprehended 46,195 illegal aliens attempting to cross the border, which is the most massive surge since June 2014.

    Good subject long overdue.What happened to my unfinished reply? Try again. It is an emotional issue that badly need to open to to god questions.
    Cancer research is a touchy subject, but question appear. We have great accomplishment in the past for difficult cases like Polio, fly to the moon, but some how we managed minor success on cancer. Nothing to determine the basic cause and how to prevent it. It is as if, research really prefer small success but no really deep research as to source and elimination.
    On the present issue i would take a negative view of the “if or not” for a decision.No, to the bad habit of government to “take from here to give there”. Lets take a look at both issues, Cancer research has become untouchable, even though it cold use more attention and question on how the money is spent. We are beginning to accumulate projects that go on forever with minor success, high in publicity , but no useful end in sight.
    On the legal issue, taken as right of American first, which we support now after decades of ego answer for the ELITE but little reward for the people. To me it appears that this issue need a good “swamp cleaning” for both programs, as Trump has in mind.
