    Young unaccompanied migrants, from ages 3 to 9, watch television inside a playpen at the US Customs and Border Protection facility.Dario Lopez-

    “It’s costing the Biden administration more than $60 million a week to care for 16,500 unaccompanied migrant teenagers and children now in federally-run shelters — and the cost is only going to rise, according to a new report.


    The Department of Homeland Security is spending the bulk of the money on costly temporary beds in “pop up” shelters in convention centers, converted oil worker camps and military bases, the Washington Post said.


    The $60 million total weekly price tag came from an analysis of government data obtained by the paper, their report said.


    The 16,500 kids now in HHS custody — about 70 percent of them are ages 16 and 17 — need shelter for an average of a month, until they can be released to vetted family members or eligible sponsors, the Washington Post said.


    But HHS has only 7,700 beds in its network of more permanent shelters, where it costs $290 a day for each child.


    That’s fewer than half the beds needed for all the kids that have surged north.


    Another 4,000 kids are languishing at cramped border intake facilities.


    That leaves another 4,000-plus kids in the hastily-constructed pop-up shelters, which cost approximately $775 per kid per day, the Washington Post said.”


    The United States is spending millions of dollars each week to care for unaccompanied migrant children.Andrew Harnik/APThe number of kids is only increasing, despite already being at an all-time high. The government projects that by September, as many as 26,000 unaccompanied minors will arrive in the US each month.”

    Why should they care?

    It's not their money.

    Besides, they can always print more.....

    Sol Star: He's not mad.
    Al Swearengen: He's got a mean way of being happy.
