Cancer research money abused for jailing immigrant children


This 21 September 2018 video from the USA says about itself:

Trump Cuts Cancer Research To Pay For THIS…

The Department of Health and Human Services is going to take money from cancer research and use it for detaining immigrant children. Cenk Uygur, Brett Erlich, Michaela Watkins, and Aida Rodriguez, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down.

“The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is planning to divert millions of dollars in funding originally allocated for programs like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in order to pay for the growing number of detained immigrant children, according to an HHS letter obtained by Yahoo! News.

The letter was addressed to Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA), ranking member on the Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions, and outlined HHS Secretary Alex Azar’s plan to reallocate up to $266 million in funding for the current fiscal year, which ends in less than two weeks. The funding would go to the Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) program housed inside the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR).”
