Refugee program costs the US tax payers $1 BILLION bucks a year (minimum!)

Your tax dollars!

Here it is, buried on the second to the last page of a 58-page report to Congress!  I knew I had seen it somewhere.

This is the Fiscal year 2012 annual report in which the President tells Congress how many refugees he wants to allow into the US, who they are, where they are coming from (who the UN has picked for us!) and at the very end how much it will cost!

Proposed Refugee Admissions for Fiscal Year 2012: Report to Congress, here.

Bottomline: $1,064,700,000

As they point out themselves in a footnote, the figure does not include:

….it does not include costs associated with the Unaccompanied Alien Children’s Program, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), Medicaid, or Supplemental Security Income programs.

Nor does it include subsidized housing, food stamps, or the cost of educating the kids!

While you are having a look at Obama’s report, note (p. 5) that we brought 54,000 refugees to the US this past fiscal year (a lower number then several prior years), however the Obama Administration has the ceiling up to 76,000 for fiscal year 2012.  I guess he and the State Department must see a labor shortage in the meatpacking industry on the horizon.
