Read the fine print on the Small Business Administration’s website, and you’ll find that the agency does not provide the funds to “start or grow” a small business – the engine of the American economy, providing roughly three-quarters of all new jobs. Rather, the SBA provides offers loan guarantees to the banks and lenders that do provide seed money.
So it might come as a surprise to American entrepreneurs that there is at least one group to whom the federal government is providing direct assistance for business start-ups: illegal aliens. In fact, these recipients of your taxpayer funds fall into an even more restricted category: illegal aliens who have been deported back to their native land.
As part of an ongoing project he calls The Waste Report, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., has called attention to these outlays, which are made by an obscure federal agency called the Inter-American Foundation (IAF).
Housed in a non-descript building a few blocks from the White House, IAF is spending up to $50,000 annually to help Salvadorans sent back to El Salvador to “reintegrate” into their communities, under the idea that doing so will make them less likely to seek to return to the United States.
This is no surprise. After all, it's all about votes - which keeps their power, and their money, growing.
Would anyone be shocked by this? Our money is going to everyone except for the needs of the American CITIZENS. Look at the VA, our roads and bridges and no social security increases for the elderly. And these idiots wonder why Trump is so popular.
Obama loves the illegals.
Obumbum 'loves' ANYTHING that harms Our America!
How much money is spent for the salaries of the "government workers" at the IAF? Isn't it wonderful how obummer has created jobs.........all by his little ole lonesome, to employees at IAF and to Salvadorans. $50,000 is more than my yearly income. Maybe he could send me some of that money and I promise never to immigrate to El Salvador illegally. p.s. I realize that this is just a drop in the bucket of what obummer and his henchmen have given away of our tax money, but the reason for it is what galls me.
A drop here, a drop there... In a short time it's a FLOOD! If we could get all of the self-serving government employees OUT, and the needed ones replaced with HONEST ones, the national debt could be whittled down in short order. Not paid off... Obumbum made that impossible. But REDUCED. I never heard of 'IAF' until this very moment. He keeps creating new agencies, and reducing our Military. I hope he doesn't declare Martial Law between now and next January. Because if he DOES, he'll call himself 'Dictator For Life'.
I don't think his life would be very long in that case!
Also Obama just voted himself, and all past Presidents, an 18% pay raise.
Wikipedia reports:"The IAF is an independent agency of the US gov. that funds dev. projects undertaken by grassroots groups and nongov. organ. in Latin America and the Caribbean. It was created through the Foreign Assist. Act of 1969 as an experimental alternative to traditional foreign assist. that operates gov.-to-gov on a much larger scale. The IAF receives its funds through annual allocations by Congress and from the Social Progress Trust Fund adm. by the Inter-American Dev. Bank and consist. of payments on US gov. loans extended under the Alliance for Progress to various Latin American and Caribbean gov's.Since beginn.operations in 1972, the IAF has awarded 4,920 grants worth more than $665 million. IAF is gov. by a board of dir. appointed by the president of the U.S. & confirmed by the US senate. One job posted started at $ 58,.....something. Wonder what the Chief Executive officer Robert N. Kaplan makes? Google it. Here we have been fussing about foreign aid all these years and little we knew that there these little known agencies sucking up our taxes. How many other "agencies" are there that we don't know about? "Grants".........what a wonderful word for free money.
This comes as a surprise???? ...............to whom?
Nothing for Americans....!!! Obama steals from the middle class and poor in order to fund a new voting group who are accountable to the demon rats
The Small Business Administration has been a "Money Pit" since the 60's. Corruption is it's middle name. During my time, the Administrator had to resign, because he owned Pornography Businesses.(Sandoval). I sent in enough money to support a whole other family, in style, for a year. My money will either go to Dead-Beat Parasites, Bail-Outs of Puerto Rico, or God knows what else. I want to see in my Lifetime the Doors of the IRS padded and locked, a Tax Rate, that every single person has to pay something into, and these Depts of Robbery closed. Close all "Alpha-Bet" Depts day One. We'd be out of Debt in no time. Vote Trump, a man who will tackle it.
