It is a good thing someone in Congress is watching out for your money! Here Senator Charles Grassley reveals that some unaccompanied alien children (those wannabe ‘refugees’) are living the good life in El Cajon, California.
The federal contractor—Southwest Key Programs—describes its amenities in documents submitted to the government as petting zoos (chickens, ducks, ponies), organic gardens and guitar lessons. Learn more about Southwest Key, here.
But, remember several of our usual migrant contractors such as the US Conference of Catholic Bishops and Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service are getting federal grants for ‘the children’ as well.
From The Blaze (hat tip: Rosemary):
Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) on Thursday demanded more details from the Obama administration about a detention facility for illegal immigrant children that says it offers guitar lessons and other amenities that raises more questions about how taxpayer dollars are being spent.
Over the summer, Grassley said the Department of Health and Human Services told members of Congress that it costs anywhere from $250 to $1,000 a day to house just a single illegal immigrant child.
On Thursday, Grassley said he has received information about one facility in California that includes pricey features that probably explain why it costs so much to house these children. That facility is in El Cajon, California, and is run by Southwest Key Programs, which described several amenities in documents it submitted to the government.
Grassley added that in April, Southwest Key proposed a daily rate of $316 per child to house them at the facility. But Grassley said it’s unclear what the company is currently charging per child.

By the way, El Cajon is a popular refugee resettlement site and we have a pretty extensive archive on problems there.
