The Biden White House has misused over $2 billion that was meant for COVID health usage like testing and emergency supplies, and used it instead for the border crisis. President Biden’s Department of Health and Human Services used these funds to house over 47,000 unaccompanied children who flooded into the country this year.
“The redirected money includes $850 million that Congress allocated for the rebuilding of the nation’s Strategic National Stockpile, the emergency medical stockpile that was dwindled by the response to covid,” Politico reported over the weekend. “Another $850 million is being removed from funds intended to expand covid testing.”
Health and Human Services reportedly brought in around $436 million from an “assortment of existing health programs across the department.”
The Biden White House took the funds away from the money that was supposed to restock the National Stockpile, which builds up our “medicines, supplies, and devices for emergency care” so that there are plenty of available resources during another national health emergency like the covid pandemic.
Politico reported that a total of $2.13 billion was diverted from covid health initiatives and then poured into helping illegals, a sum that “exceeds the government’s budget for unaccompanied minor illegals in each of the past two years.”
Republican Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis (N.Y.) reacted to the transfer of covid funds to illegals by telling the NY Post, “The president created this crisis and is now misusing taxpayers’ money. The answer to every crisis is not to throw money at it.”
The flood of migrants has been a financial nightmare for the Biden White House, which has given out $86 million to house 1,200 families in hotels. An earlier report found that the Biden team gave $3 billion to house minors. And analysis in April revealed that Biden is spending $60 million per week to house minors in government-run facilities.
