City taxpayers are picking up the tab for the illegal aliens flooding into their community… and still waiting for reimbursement from the federal government.
Illegal aliens are currently literally pouring across the border near McAllen, Texas. They’re crossing the Rio Grande river, being picked up by Border Patrol, and dropped off at local immigration shelters – up to 200 per day.
Channel 5 News reported that the city of McAllen has spent $365,736 from their “emergency response fund” since the huge surge of Central Americans hit in 2014, and now they are preparing for another wave. The federal government has not yet reimbursed the city for expenses from 2014.
Josh Ramirez, McAllen Health Department director, said, “If we maintain 200 people a day, it’s going to be an extremely busy summer.”
The illegals are taken to the Sacred Heart Respite Center, where donated tents, cots and showers are set up for those who have to stay overnight. The center is run by the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in McAllen, under the direction of Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley, a pro-immigrant organization which welcomes and assists immigrants, regardless of their legal status.
And taxpayers are picking up the tab.
