HOUSTON, Texas–The federal government is in dire need of U.S. citizens willing to house the thousands of illegal immigrants who enter the country each week, and they are willing to pay them to do so.
The Texas-based nonprofit Catholic Charities is currently seeking out foster families for the migrants, most of whom come from Central America. A spokeswoman for the organization told Breitbart Texas that foster families can receive monthly payments for housing adult immigrants who are under 23-years-old.
“Most of our children are 15 to 17-years-old,” she said. “But some stay in our program until they are 22-years-old; if they’re still working on getting their high school diploma, they can stay until they’re that age.”
The revelation that some of the migrants receiving foster care are adults will likely come as a surprise to many; the mainstream media has largely portrayed the border crisis as involving only children and family units.
The spokeswoman mentioned that foster families will be given $40 per day to care for each migrant they take in from Catholic Charities. The assistance is funded by the federal government, as Breitbart Texas previously reported.
Foster parents have the ability to collect more than $7,400 per month, considering that they can house six immigrants at any given time.
The spokeswoman said that the illegal immigrants are provided with taxpayer subsidized education, health care, transportation, and an “allowance.” She was not specific about the amount of such an allowance or how often it is administered.
Many have expressed outrage that instead of being turned away at the border, many illegal aliens are being brought to federal facilities where they receive a slew of taxpayer-subsidized benefits: housing, food, vocational training, English lessons, recreation, and legal counsel. Ultimately, most of the migrants are released onto U.S. soil after promising to show up at an immigration court hearing.
