FEMA funds diverted to ICE


Trump administration diverted nearly $10 million from FEMA to ICE detention program, according to DHS document

By Isaac Stanley-Becker
September 12 at 4:58 AM

The Trump administration appears to have diverted nearly $10 million in funding for the Federal Emergency Management Agency, or FEMA, to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the agency at the forefront of the president’s zero-tolerance immigration policy that led to the separation of hundreds of children, some as young as 18 months, from their parents.

The reallocation of public money is documented in a “Transfer and Reprogramming” notification prepared this fiscal year by the Department of Homeland Security, the parent department of ICE, as the agency is known. It was made public by Democratic Sen. Jeff Merkley of Oregon in an appearance Tuesday on “The Rachel Maddow Show,” as Hurricane Florence barreled toward the Carolinas.

Merkley’s office provided the 39-page budget document independently to The Washington Post. It shows that DHS requested that about $9.8 million going toward FEMA efforts such as “Preparedness and Protection” and “Response and Recovery” be funneled instead into ICE coffers, specifically underwriting “Detention Beds” and the agency’s “Transportation and Removal Program.” The U.S. Secret Service was also a beneficiary of the reallocation.

“This is a scandal,” Merkley said in a statement. “At the start of hurricane season — when American citizens in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands are still suffering from FEMA’s inadequate recovery efforts — the administration transferred millions of dollars away from FEMA. And for what? To implement their profoundly misguided ‘zero-tolerance’ policy. It wasn’t enough to rip thousands of children out of the arms of their parents — the administration chose to partly pay for this horrific program by taking away from the ability to respond to damage from this year’s upcoming and potentially devastating hurricane season.”

Not as long as the Trump Trashers are in office. I have no ill-will towards the people of the southeast coast (having been one of them) but there is a certain amount of Karma involved since the states most likely to get smacked by Florence went to the Donald in 2016. Be careful what you wish for you might get it! Ain't Karma a bltch!

You've been listening to Pat Robertson, Cro. He has ruined your mind.

I never listen to Pat Robertson, Belle! In what way are you suggesting that my mind has been ruined? I simply pointed out that the people who voted for Trump are very likely to suffer from their mistake.

In the past, Pat Robertson has been notorious for blaming natural disasters on homosexuals and feminists.

It seems like you do have ill will toward the people in the path of Florence, cro. And what about all of the people in those states who didn't vote for Trump?

Which in no way indicates that I am inclined to do anything of the sort. The concept of "karma" long predates Christianity.

Btw, Geez. did you take note of my other post re: Florence? Since you made a post in answer to it I should think it's obvious that I am not indifferent to the safety of the residents of the potentially effected areas - regardless of their political affiliation.

I lived through Andrew. I did what I could to assist ALL my neighbor.s - even those I didn't particularly care for. Such things are of no importance (at least not to me. You have to speak for yourself.)

It seems to me that you are unfairly laying the ground work for excusing Trump IF, (and hope not) he mishandles this like RP, and making it politically incorrect to say he was not great again.

Show us exactly where anyone (except those taking away FEMA funding for the for profits baby prisons) has said here anything that justifies your fake news about " you do have ill will toward the people in the path of Florence " .

You are who is planning to generate more evil fake news, just like Trump did a great with RP relief.

But Trump was right about Americans getting tired of his kind of "winning"

Re: FEMA funds diverted to ICE


this adm, is a joke, we are paying for Trump wall, not Mexico
and taxpayers will pay to fund FEMA, since Trump adm
stole the money.

 Taxpayers will end up paying for all these bad decisions.
