In the NGO salary sweeps, Juan Sanchez has David Miliband beat by a mile!

As I mentioned the other day, the issue of the border crossing kids is one I discussed back in the Obama days rather extensively, but the ‘children,’ the mostly unaccompanied teenage boys crossing our borders, are not refugees and so the issue isn’t at the top of my radar screen right now.

Juan Sanchez, doing well by doing good!

 

And, the subject is ably covered by so many others.

That said, I do get some pleasure out of demonstrating that Leftwing do-gooders, whose hearts bleed for the children, also happen to be raking in big government bucks from you—the US taxpayer—for their good works.

Southwest Key Programs is one example.  You can read more about it here at wikipedia .  It is largely funded with government grants and contracts.

Reader Mary alerted me to the huge taxpayer-funded salary its President and CEO Juan Sanchez is pulling down.  CNN says it is now at $1.5 million.

I find it amusing that now that Trump is in office these outrageous taxpayer supported NGO salaries are suddenly newsworthy.

David Miliband (CEO of another federal contractor—-The International Rescue Committee) is a piker at $671,749.

The most recent Form 990 I could find (tax year ending in August 2016) for Southwest Key Programs is this one from Obama’s time in office—clearly the Obama ORR was shelling out big bucks to care for detained children.

 

Almost completely government funded….

And, here is the salaries page….

These are salaries you pay for care of the illegal alien children until they are released in to America when sponsors are found, or upon turning 18!

 

Go here for all of my posts on the UACs.  Some of our usual refugee contractors are also on this gravy train.

UNHCR meets in Switzerland: Gap widens between numbers of needy people and welcoming countries

What else is new!

I’ve been following this issue for over ten years and I have never seen the UNHCR report anything but doom and gloom—more people than ever (every year!) need to be resettled in a better country than the one they left. Nothing changes while the US taxpayer foots most of the bill!***

And, heck, we haven’t yet reached the “migrant apocalypse” stage yet.
