Trump’s blatantly illegal policy of jailing immigrants seeking asylum and taking their children away from them — and losing hundreds of them in the process — has stressed the budget of the agency overseeing it, so naturally Trump decided to steal hundreds of millions of dollars from AIDS and cancer research to pay for their barbaric policy.
The Trump administration is planning to shift more than $260 million to cover the rising cost and strain of housing thousands of undocumented immigrant children in their custody — including millions of dollars from programs like cancer research and HIV/AIDS prevention.The request comes as the program has been strained by record-high levels of children in custody, driven in large part by new policies that are holding kids longer and making it more difficult for them to be released to adults, such as family members.
It also comes amid news that the Department of Health and Human Services once again could not locate 1,500 children it had released over a three-month period.
This is on top of the $10 million they took from FEMA — during hurricane season, FFS — to help pay for their illegal and disgusting policy. The man has no conscience. None.
