more cruelty for caged kids: Trumpers wind down services — such as legal aid, English classes and recreational activity

Defenseless children don't vote.-Trump and GOP
(plus they are, you know, brown)


The Trump administration told migrant shelters this week to wind down services — such as legal aid, English classes and recreational activity — that are not directly related to children's safety.

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) said it began instructing grantees this week to begin scaling back or discontinuing awards for activities "that are not directly necessary for the protection of life and safety, including education services, legal services, and recreation."

Federal officials said the administration's refugee office is running out of the necessary funds to deal with a massive influx of unaccompanied minors at the southern border.

"Additional resources are urgently required to meet the humanitarian needs created by this influx — to both sustain critical child welfare and release operations and increase capacity," HHS said.

HHS said ending those services are necessary under the Antideficiency Act, which requires the department to prioritize safety when faced with a funding shortfall.

The department is seeking an emergency appropriation of $2.88 billion to fund its refugee operations. HHS said the program is on pace to run out of funding in the coming weeks and will need supplemental funding. HHS is legally obligated to direct funding to essential services.

Under current law, migrant children who illegally cross into the U.S. must be sent to a government shelter, where they stay until they can be united with relatives or other sponsors while awaiting immigration court hearings.

HHS operates a network of approximately 168 facilities and programs in 23 states to house those children. On average this year, the agency has taken about 40,000 children into custody, including 12,587 in April. They stayed an average of 48 days until a case worker could place them with a sponsor, usually a relative.

Seems like a national emergency so Pres. Trump can direct funds from somewhere else to pay for recreation and education.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

"What did it cost American taxpayers to fly Trump and his grifter family, cabinet and select toadie White House staff to Europe?"

So they're saying there's no more $$ for "Summer Camp"?

Maybe it's time for a REAL National Emergency…
