Over the weekend it was reported that the Biden
administration will be spending $86
million in hotel rooms to house
illegal immigrants as it struggles to get a handle on the immigration at the
border. How do they justify spending our tax dollars to house illegals in
hotel rooms when there are homeless veterans and U.S. citizens who could
benefit from these resources?
These illegal immigrants will also get free food, medical
care, and COVID tests, paid for by the hard-working taxpayers of the United
So, how exactly does the Biden administration justify
prioritizing the housing, feeding, and health care of illegal immigrants over
any American citizen?
Emerald Robinson of Newsmax was wondering the same thing and
asked White House press secretary Jen Psaki to explain why National Guard
troops were forced to
sleep in parking garages at the Capitol while illegal immigrants got hotel rooms.
Psaki’s response was disgraceful.
After referencing the report that $86 million in taxpayer
dollars was being spent to pay for hotel rooms and food for illegal immigrants because
Biden’s cages (my words) were over capacity, Robinson asked Psaki, “How do
you share that with the National Guard troops who were sleeping in parking
garages and, you know, some of them got sick from having contaminated food.
That’s a disparity that a lot of people are pointing out — that our National
Guard was treated one way and then illegal immigrants are going to be put in
Psaki ignored the report about the $86 million to cover
hotel rooms for illegals and proceeded with a word salad trying to explain Joe
Biden’s response to the situation with the National Guard.
“At the time when we became aware of the conditions the
National Guard troops were in, in parking garages as you noted, the president
called the head of the National Guard that day and offered his assistance,
offered to play any role that he could play,” Psaki said. “I know that was some
time ago, but that was the reaction he took at the time.”
Psaki then went on to another question.
After Biden’s inauguration, roughly 5,000 National Guardsmen
were forced to sleep in a parking garage overnight after being kicked out of
In response to the disgraceful treatment, the Biden
administration sent Jill Biden with cookies. President Trump, however, outraged
by how the Biden administration treated our troops, offered National
Guardsmen still stationed at the Capitol lodging at his hotel in Washington,
And that’s a key difference between Trump and Biden.
