    Justify $3.7 Billion Request


    The White House apparently knew and was preparing for an influx of 60,000 children along our southern border back in January. (None Dare Call It Complicity)

    In  his press conference Wednesday evening, President Barack Obama stated  that $3.7 billion was needed to house and to deal with the 57,000  children in custody of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.  The President said there was no money to deal with the situation which  is why Congress must give him the funds he is requesting.

    Then  why did the government put out an ad offering a contract to provide for  the care, transport, security and dealing with an expected 60,000  children at the border in January, 2014?

    The money apparently was already put into the budget for this.

    The  crisis apparently is one allowed to become by the White House in order  to push for passage of the Senate-passed comprehensive immigration  reform bill.

    From  the Cornfield, the President needs to provide justification for the  $3.7 billion requested. He needs to explain why the government was aware  of the coming 60,000 children this year and waited until it became a  humanitarian crisis to act.
