Biden Administration Giving $300 Million to Sanctuary Cities

The Biden Administration’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has allocated at least $300 million to so-called “sanctuary cities,” which offer safe harbor to illegal aliens, in defiance of federal law.

As The National Pulse reports, the funds will be funneled through the Shelter and Services Program (SSP) and will be used to fund shelters and food for the illegals, among other things. Of the $300 million total, $275 million will be handed out immediately, with another $25 million put on hold for use later in the year.

The SSP primarily funds NGOs and local government entities and covers such aspects as food, shelter, transportation, medical care, and hygiene for illegals. It also covers clothing, translation, administrative costs, and remodeling of current shelters.

Another $340.9 million was allocated to the SSP by the DHS for the former’s competitive grant program. Last year, the DHS gave over $780 million to SSP and another program that also funds sanctuary cities and NGOs that support illegals.

The ongoing financial support for sanctuary locales, at the city and statewide level, continues to fuel the ongoing mass migration crisis, with record numbers of illegal aliens crossing the border. House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) said recently that he estimates as many as 16 million illegals have crossed the border since Joe Biden first came to power. The flood of third-world illegals has led to numerous humanitarian disasters across the United States, including a rise in crime, homelessness, drug use, and disease.
