US “Rep. Good Introduces No Taxpayer Funding for the Central American Minors Program June 28, 2021 Press Release
WASHINGTON — U.S. Representative Bob Good (VA-05) introduced a bill that would block taxpayer funding for a chain-migration program recently reinstated and expanded by the Biden-Harris Administration.

Under the Biden Administration’s expansion of the Central American Minors (CAM) Program, millions of individuals illegally crossing the border will be able to petition the government to have their relatives transported to the United States on the taxpayer’s dime.

“The Biden Administration continues to implement polices to incentivize illegal immigration. Its new government program will now reward illegal aliens with a plane ticket for other family members,” said Congressman Bob Good. “My legislation will ensure that no American taxpayers are used to foot the bill for a taxi service for aliens entering the country illegally.”

Background: 
* In March, the Biden Administration reinstated and expanded the Central American Minors (CAM) Program, which was previously created under the Obama Administration and terminated by President Trump.

* On June 15th, 2021 the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of State issued a joint statement announcing an expansion of this unlawful chain migration program

* With the expansion of the illegal Central American Minors (CAM) Program, the Biden Administration plans to provide a “public option” for aliens entering the United States illegally and work without going through our immigration system. 

* Under this new expansion, millions of individuals illegally crossing the border will be able to petition the government to have their relatives transported to the U.S. using taxpayer dollars
