It’s hard to believe unless you realize how hard Democrats fight for them as opposed to how little they fight for Americans but illegal alien children have a higher living standard than 13.2 million of our own chidren. The taxpayers spend on average over thirty four thousand a year on an illegal child. That is way above the poverty line. Now, I have an idea and it’s just crazy enough that it just might work. Let’s take the 1.4 billion a year we spend on illegal children and make life better for 13.2 million American children. I realize it’s a radical idea, but it’s an idea whose time has come.
In Fiscal Year 2017, the federal government referred nearly 41,000 unaccompanied minor border crossers to the Unaccompanied Alien Children program which is facilitated by the Office of Refugee Resettlement.
Data provided to Breitbart News reveals that each unaccompanied minor costs the federal government about $34,660 annually. This is a higher standard of living per child than the roughly 13 million American children who continue to live below the U.S. poverty line.
In 2016, there were about 13.2 million American children under the age of 18 living in poverty. These are U.S. children, for example, whose parents or guardians –in a household of four — earn less than $24,500 a year.

Democrats complain about the living standards for the illegal children living in detention centers while 13.2 million American children would kill for what they have. It is perversely wrong, just like the ideology of the Democratic party.
