VIA| While most of our military families have a hard time getting by and have to rely on food stamps, Obama is offering “house” in America to 100,000 refugees by 2017.
“We will now go up to 85,000 with at least 10,000 over the next year in Syria specifically. And in the next fiscal year we will target 100,000,” Kerry said.
The Daily Caller reports:
Each refugee is offered a placement grant of $1,850 from the Department of State (a family of 6 would receive $11,100). This includes: pre-arrival, reception, initial housing food, clothing, referral services and social programs. The benefit eligibility are for those refugees who have been in the U.S. for up to three months.
Refugees who’ve been in the United States up to seven years are also offered medical financial assistance through Medicaid as well as through the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP).
