Taxpayers Buying Millions Of Diapers For Illegal Aliens

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency is buying 2.2 million diapers to help deliver migrants and their young children into Americans’ worksites, schools, and neighborhoods, according to an online contract request.

The purchase implements the policy set by a bipartisan panel in Congress, which in February directed the Department of Homeland Security to help the migrants — despite the impact on Americans’ wages, schools, and neighborhoods — instead of helping Americans by giving the agency the legal authority needed to block the migration.

The purchase request was posted May 31 and asks for diapers, baby wipes, and shower shoes.

The diapers are being bought with funds provided in the February border spending bill for the DHS. The bill included “$192,700,000 for improved medical care, transportation, and consumables to better ensure the health and safety of migrants who are temporarily in [U.S. Customs and Border Protection] custody,” according to a congressional Explanatory Statement of the provisions. The money is also being used to fly migrants from the border to their job sites and homes in the United States.

Where is all this money coming from? Yep, right out of your pocket.
