There’s finally a portion of Generation Y receiving more financial aid than the more entitled baby boomer generation. Unfortunately, all of these millennials are unauthorized immigrants.
The Washington Examiner reported that the Obama Administration has budgeted $17,613 for each of the 75,000 Central American teens expected to cross the border illegally this year. Thats $2,841 more than the average Social Security retirement benefit.
According to a study by the Center for Immigration Studies, an additional $2.1 billion is also in the Obama budget for refugees, which can include the unauthorized immigrants from Central America, mostly Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador.
That totals more than $3.4 billion to be allocated to unauthorized immigrants and refugees. That could pay for more than 60 percent of Bernie Sanders’ jobs program for disadvantaged youth — price tagged by The Wall Street Journal at $5.5 billion.
Young Democrats, especially African Americans, should realize that the money for their jobs program is being spent on illegal immigrants who haven’t even broken into the U.S. yet.
Instead of allocating finite resources to American millennials, President Obama kowtowed to the ethnic lobbies with the hopes of wooing over future undocumented Democrats.
