American Taxpayers Funding the Border Invasion of Illegal Immigrants

BREAKING: WASHINGTON, D.C.– With the help of the United Nations, the U.S. is using the American tax dollar to fund its own border invasion, suggests a staggering new report from The Epoch Times.

Over the past several years, Americans have struggled to fund shelter, medical care, food and education for the migrants who have illegally passed the border. Just last month, California expanded health insurance to all eligible undocumented adults at the expense of the American taxpayer.

Now, we’ve discovered that we may also be paying the bill for their illegal journey across the border, and that the crisis itself might have been intentionally engineered.

“We’re actually funding our own border crisis,” said Todd Bensman of the Center for Immigration Studies. Most taxpayers are unaware of this, he warned.

The close-knit U.S. alliance with the U.N. is a large contributor to the border crisis through agencies such as the International Office for Migration (IOM), a U.N. office which funneled some half-billion dollars to aid illegal immigrants to the U.S. before 2021.

Former president Donald Trump upheld a strong anti-illegal immigration stance, but under the Biden Administration, this funding amount “has skyrocketed” to about $1.3 billion in 2023, said The Epoch Times. This staggering number has nearly doubled in two years.

This aid to illegal immigrants “comes in the form of prepaid debit cards, food, water, shelter, medical care and transportation,” The Epoch Times reported. “In most cases, these migrants are ‘directly’ receiving cash.”

In fact, the U.N. emergency manual describes this form of payment as a cash-based intervention (CBI), where recipients (in this case, illegal immigrants) receive “cash in envelopes.”

Bensman went viral on X (then Twitter) in 2021 when he traveled to Mexico to witness whether these CBIs were fact or fiction. He recorded long lines of illegal immigrants waiting to receive U.N. debit cards.

“In Reynosa, Mexico, at a migrant camp, the United Nations IOM helpfully doles out debit cards to aspiring US border crossers,” Bensman wrote. “The IOM workers said a migrant family of four gets about $800 a month. I watched long lines of migrants get their UN debit cards.”

Most of this money, Bensman later told The Epoch Times, is “provided by, ultimately, the United States taxpayer.”

Now, people are further incentivized and motivated to cross the U.S. border illegally.

“People respond to the signals that are being sent,” said Iam Mehlam, spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). “If they believe that there is a good chance that they’re going to be able to get to the United States and be allowed to remain here, then they will go through all the things that they have to go through.”

These cash envelopes and debit cards handed out by the U.N. are ultimately the burden of the U.S. taxpayer. They’re funded by the U.S. State Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration.

Ironically, The Epoch Times pointed out, this department is also responsible for processing and resettling people requesting refugee status. Its hundreds of millions-dollar budget is largely going to migrants who don’t even qualify as refugees, “long before they step foot on American soil.”

The role of the U.N., aside from physically distributing American tax dollars to illegal immigrants, is asking the U.S. for donations for agencies (again, from the American tax dollar) designed to sabotage U.S. borders. 

One of these programs has allocated $372 million in “cash and vouchers” and “multipurpose cash assistance” this year for 624,3000 migrants in Central and South America who are headed for the U.S. border, experts say.

This $372 million pales in comparison to the donation appeal the U.N. submitted to the U.S. in January.

Last month, the IOM launched its first ever Global Annual Appeal for 2024, asking the U.S. for $7.9 billion to “support its operations and help create a system that realizes migration’s promise as a force for good throughout the world.”

This appeal, frighteningly, is part of IOM’s new “five-year Global Strategic Plan.”

“Irregular and forced migration have reached unprecedented levels and the challenges we face are increasingly complex,” said IOM Director General Amy Pope. “The evidence is overwhelming that migration, when well-managed, is a major contributor to global prosperity and progress.”

Evidently, “irregular and forced migration” would apply to illegal crossers of the U.S.-Mexico border, who do not fit the criteria for refugee status.

Interestingly, Pope has served as Biden’s senior advisor on migration. She also served as deputy homeland security advisor to former president Barack Obama.

“It’s no coincidence that the person incentivizing these mass border crossings has direct ties to the White House, where she’s used her perch at the U.N. to extract even more money from the overly generous United States,” The Washington Stand commented in a recent article.

In a remark about the influx of illegal immigration, Bensman made the following statement.

“If the incentive is to leave rather than to reform and change things where you are, then those failed societies continue.”
