Are people who are taking in undocumented immigrants doing so for altruistic reasons or are there any possible gains in monetary incentives involved?
In a previous post I commented there is no better time to cross the USA border now that President Joe Biden and the Democrat Party is now in power.
When an unaccompanied immigrant child is taken into custody at the border, it costs taxpayers over 700 dollars a day to care for then until a guardian home is found to care for them. Guardians could be relatives and have altruistic reasons. In either case, whether they know it or not they are also eligible for payments to care for the child until he or she is eighteen years old.
I googled “foster care for caregivers” and this following statement appeared.
“If you are currently caring for a child in foster care who was placed through an emergency placement or placement on a compelling, you are entitled to receive emergency caregiver funding at the basic foster care rate ($960/month per child as of July 1, 2018). In most cases, you will continue to receive that funding until you complete RFA.”
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate and ancient proverb to the current crisis at the border of unaccompanied children being apprehended and cared for by the government now that President Joe Biden has technically extended an open invitation for anyone who wants to immigrated to the USA and does not want to wait years to do so legally.
What do people gain from all their labors at which they toil under the sun? (Ecclesiastes 1:3)
What’s My Point?
The above verse is the question which King Solomon posed 3000 years ago in his Ecclesiastes to record what he observed of people lives. Frankly, I am borrowing the verse to question what I am observing about the crisis at the border/
In My Opinion
I am not certain most people are aware or even care about how government spends their tax dollars. Or entitle certain of the following information which I gathered reading by googling government articles.
That being said, if taxpayers don’t know or seem it care about the costs to care for unaccompanied children entering the USA. So why not send your child unaccompanied across the border and have a relative in the USA even if they too are illegal be compensated for caring for him or her.
Keep in mind, the Dream Act is next on President Joe Biden and the Democrat Party which may grant amnesty and citizenship to any children of illegal immigrants brought into the USA. This may in time allow them to petition for their parents or other relatives to be admitted into the USA?
If you are interested in taking care of an unoccupied immigrant child and whether or not he or she has given your name as a relative and you qualify, you probably don’t have to pay airfare on your own to pick up the child. The government may pay because it is less costly roar the government now that it costs over $700 a day and the facilities to house are becoming scarce because of the present influx.

Is now perhaps a really good opportune time to immigrate to the USA now that President Joe Biden and the Democrat Party is in power?
Did I perhaps provide an answer to King Solomon’s ancient question of how things have changed over time to his question of: “What do people gain… under the sun” …monetarily…. in the USA… for caring for an unaccompanied immigrant child?
