Trump Preparing To Divert HIV/AIDS Funding To Pay For Surge In Child Migrant Detentions
The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) appears to be preparing for the possibility of another surge in family separations, according to internal ORR documents reviewed by Slate.
Slate reports that the Trump administration would pay for additional costs incurred to detain thousands more children by diverting money from the budget of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program, which makes medical care more accessible for more than half a million uninsured and underinsured people each year.
According to the site, ORR is preparing for a potential scenario in which the administration’s border policies might require as many as 25,400 beds for immigrant minors by the end of the calendar year.
