The U.S. Border Patrol’s busiest region on the southern border now expects to spend more than $20 million on consumable items and services for asylum-seekers, up from the $12.5 million it had budgeted for the year due to a continued surge of families illegally crossing into the United States, according to federal data obtained by the Washington Examiner.

The extra money to aid asylum-seekers along the Rio Grande Valley Sector, the eastern-most region of the 2,000-mile southern border, will go toward “medical, shower/laundry, food, caregiver, etc.,” a Border Patrol official told the Examiner on condition of anonymity.

The article goes on to state the following:

The Rio Grande Valley Sector had expected to spend $12.5 million on contracted services between last October and this September, known as fiscal 2019.

However, due to a drastic uptick in the number of immigrant family apprehensions in the valley since October, they now say they are on track to spend $20 million by September.

    I don’t think we ought to be spending a dime on them! Physically turn them around and have them start walking back where they came from. These people come because they know they will be taken care of. Why should we as tax payers be forces to care for them. Again, they have put themselves in this position , it’s not like we are responsible for their decision to break the law!
