Biden Caught Stealing From Healthcare Fund – Guess Why?

President Joe Biden has robbed Americans of $2 billion originally designated for healthcare programs, to instead spend it on illegal migrant families.

“The Department of Health and Human Services [HHS] has diverted more than $2 billion meant for other health initiatives toward covering the cost of caring for unaccompanied immigrant children,” Politico reported over the weekend.

The article continued:

“The redirected funds include $850 million that Congress originally allocated to rebuild the nation’s Strategic National Stockpile, the emergency medical reserve strained by the Covid-19 response. Another $850 million is being taken from a pot intended to help expand coronavirus testing, according to three people with knowledge of the matter.

In addition to transferring money from the Strategic National Stockpile and Covid-19 testing, HHS also has pulled roughly $436 million from a range of existing health initiatives across the department.”

A leaked report published by the New York Times further revealed that program costs are expected to reach almost $9 billion by October.

The increase in funding to the skyrocketing population of migrant youth means lower-profile American kids will suffer as their diverse American parents are damaged by COVID-19, cheap labor migration, job losses, housing costs, drugs, or homelessness while the government gives funds to illegals to help them instead.

The Politico report follows the leak of a government report to the New York Times. The leaked report detailed the HHS agency’s plan to spend almost $9 billion by October to implement Biden’s decision to import the youths and children of U.S.-based illegal migrants.

“Current projections show [a] preliminary budget estimate of $8.6b for FY21,” said the briefing for officials in HHS.

It continued:

“With existing resources, a shortfall (of $366m) occurs in May and grows quickly through July with an overall project shortfall in excess of $4 billion.

OMB approved an additional transfer from HHS resources to the UC [UAC] programing the amount of $850 million this week. This funding is not reflecting in this morning balance — will be added once [the] execution process is complete. There may be [an] additional $846.5 million available in future weeks. This will mitigate but not fully resolve the project budget shortfall.”

The HHS spending does not include spending — or diverted resources — at other agencies, such as the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

Since January, roughly 50,000 youths and children have been accepted at the border by the government-run program, which replaced President Donald Trump’s policy of flying the youths and children back to their homes in Central America.

Biden declined to use the judge-approved option of flying the arriving youths and children back to their distant homes. Strong majorities of swing voters blame Biden, not Trump, for the unpopular migration crisis.

“The $2.13 billion in diverted money exceeds the government’s annual budget for the unaccompanied children program in each of the last two fiscal years,” Politico reported.

The migration also creates a new generation of illegal migrants for business groups and progressive Democrats to champion instead of poor or disadvantaged Americans, just as Democrats now use the “DACA” illegals.

The federal delivery of children to their illegal migrant parents, after their handoff at the border by cartel-controlled coyotes, has been an open secret in Washington, DC, for at least six years.

The secret federal cooperation with the coyotes and the cartels stopped when President Donald Trump used his emergency authority in 2020 to send the migrants home when they arrived at the border.

The cooperation, however, has been accelerated by President Biden as his deputies seek to extract more wage-cutting workers, taxpayer-supported consumers, and high-occupancy renters from Central American into the United States.

“We’re complicit as a nation in human trafficking,” Sen. Lindsey Graham said at a March 26 press conference in Texas with 17 other GOP senators exposing what Biden is really doing with migrants.
