Americans will not likely receive a fourth COVID Stimulus Check because the Biden administration will “relocate” $860 million in funds meant for COVID-19 relief programs to the Health and Human Services department in order to cover the cost of housing thousands of illegal aliens.
Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra defended the switch in a letter to the House and Senate Appropriations Committees Wednesday. Becerra claimed that “his department needed the funds to ensure the safety of unaccompanied migrant children arriving at the border,” according to a report in the New York Post. “They also need to cover costs associated with staffing at shelters for these children, Becerra wrote.”
According to Bloomberg News, which broke the story, “HHS’ costs for housing unaccompanied migrant children had gone up by $1.7 billion as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, due to precautions the government needed to take,” thereby justifying the use of COVID-19 relief funds for what would typically be considered an immigration issue.
Becerra told Congress that HHS needs the money not because the Biden administration has so far failed to handle a crisis at the border, but because the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) “placed significant demands” on HHS and imposed severe restrictions on how the immigrant children can be housed in order to control the spread of COVID-19.
The funds would have gone to the National Institutes of Health, but Becerra assured Congress that the change in allocation would “not disrupt or impede planned NIH activities.”
Hal Turner Remarks
Readers would do well to recall what Democrats did to then-President Trump when he wanted to reallocate money to complete a border wall: They sued to block the movement of funding claiming that moving the money usurped Congress, which has the purse strings and decides where money is spent.
Yet when Democrats run things, moving the money is somehow no longer an issue. Hypocrites!
