The Daily Caller has reported that under the Obama administration a total of eight taxpayer-funded nonprofits protected illegal immigrants by spending $291 million between the years of 2012 and 2016. It was determined by analyzing documents of federal spending and tax data done by the Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group. Meaning, taxpayer dollars were misappropriated to be spent on illegal aliens.
These nonprofits helped illegal immigrants with services such as legal representation and social and political advocacy. One even endorsed former presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. $274 million of the funds, which makes up ninety-four percent of public funds, came from the federal government while President Obama was in office.
But this number is expected to be underreported because the analyzed 990s were not always available. Thus, the ones that were analyzed and researched were only some of the whole. It is merely a small sample of publically funded pro-illegal immigrant nonprofits.
A 2013 Urban Institue study said the following about the issue,
“At least 684 nonprofits nationwide provide some form of legal aid to immigrants, more detailed breakdown is necessary to reveal how much support comes from … government agencies.”
Of all the charities the one that received the most was The Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS).
In total, they got about eighty percent of the total funding meaning $255 million. It went towards assisting refugees. Ninety-two percent of the LIRS budget was federal grants. Meaning, they could not survive without them.
LIRS works to:
“Ensure all migrants and refugees are protected, embraced and empowered and seeks to end detention centers, according to its website. Instead, the group advocates for community-based alternatives to immigration detention to house individuals as they await a final decision on their immigration status.”
The National Council of La Raza (NCLR) was next line for the most funded. The Americans For Immigrant Justice also received a large chunk of funding. Public money was ninety-one percent of its total revenue. The majority of these organizations couldn’t survive without federal money or they would not be able to function.
This just goes to show how biased and ineffective they truly are. Because if they worked they would not need federal funding in order to complete most of their work. Which makes sense then why they don’t support President Trump.
President Trump is working on behalf of Americans and not the world because he is the President of the United States. If only these organizations had that mentality. Then they would be so much more effective.
