Officials told NBC News the accommodations cost so much because of extra expenses for security, air conditioning, medical workers, and other government contractors, all brought in at short notice.

It would cost less to keep children with their parents, according to NBC News. Housing children with their parents in detention centers like the US Customs and Immigration Enforcement center in Dilley, Texas, costs $298 per person per night.

=============================

The cost is what it is...and this is because we have mothers that are breaking our immigration laws and bringing their children with they...not good mothers.

We have laws and it is costly to enforce them but if we must.


If we are going to continue have so many illegals coming into the US and we have to give they housing, food and take care of their medical needs we should spend a few billion and build Holiday Inns with medical clinics.

Oddly enough, most immigrants take care of their own needs quite well. They sometimes have to have help with medical issues but that is more of a function of the crazy medical system we have. So, if they pick up their own costs (and start new businesses at a higher rate than native born), you don't have a problem with them being here?

The migrant children in tent cities could have a suite at Trump's Washington hotel for rates lower than what the US government spends detaining them

Tent city versus Trump DC_2x1

 

 

  • Some migrant children have been detained in so-called tent cities, without their parents, as part of the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" border policy.
  • Housing a child in these locations costs $775 per child per night on average, according to NBC.
  • Business Insider research showed Trump hotels in New York, Las Vegas, and Washington, DC, all offering rates for suites lower than $775.

 

The migrant children being detained away from their parents in tent cities could be put up in a suite at one of President Donald Trump's hotels at a rate lower than what the US government is reportedly spending on them.
