U.S. National Debt

An estimated 75,000 Central American teens are expected to cross illegally into the U.S. in 2016, and President Obama has budgeted $17,613 for each one. The total bill for taxpayers is $1.3 billion, more than double what the federal government spent on the same thing in 2010.

The President’s budget is awaiting congressional approval. It also includes another $2.1 billion for refugees, which is in addition to funding for a UN program that will provide illegal minors with plane tickets so they can avoid the arduous trip over land.

Refugees are automatically granted legal status in the U.S. and are required to apply for a green card within their first year, but most undocumented minors do not qualify for refugee status. Instead, they are seeking to unify with their family members who are in the U.S. illegally.

Why this Matters: In the six months that have passed since the budget deal, the federal debt has increased by more than $1 trillion. April 28, the Treasury Department published the total federal debt: $19,186,207,744,590. Note from the graph above how much the debt has increased since the last presidential election.

How to Pray: First, as a nation and as believers, we have to repent for greed and impatience that would cause us to be irresponsible with our spending. God forgive us and help us out of this financial hole!

Luke 16:11 – If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust true riches?
