(ConservativeSense.com) – The Biden administration will spend $410 million dollars protecting the borders of countries in the Middle East. The funding is part of the $1.7 trillion omnibus spending bill and will be used to enhance border security in Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt, Tunisia, and Oman. Meanwhile, the US southern border is breached daily as 1,000s of illegal immigrants arrive and are sent to struggling American cities.
It is the second major payment to protect foreign borders this year. In March, $370 million was allocated to the same countries. In 2021, it was $870 million.
The Omnibus spending bill was unveiled on December 20th and includes the provision of billions of dollars to overseas countries including Ukraine, which receives a $45 billion package. It includes $9 billion for munitions and $13 to aid the Ukrainian economy.
As the US government spends 100s of millions of dollars to protect foreign borders, the American border is under unprecedented strain. A record-breaking number of illegal migrants entered the US this year and some cities and states have declared a state of emergency due to their inability to cope with the number of arrivals. This includes New York, Denver, and California – all led by Democrats who have campaigned for mass immigration.
Federal authorities this year have made more than 2 million arrests at the border, up from 1.7 million in 2021. This figure does not include people who have managed to breach the border successfully. The Biden administration has placed the blame on the countries of origin and said it is difficult to send the migrants back. “Failing communist regimes in Venezuela, Nicaragua, and Cuba are driving a new wave of migration. Those fleeing repressive regimes pose significant challenges for processing and removal”, Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Chris Magnus said in a statement.
