Congressional shrug on emergency border spending could prove costly

Speaker of the House John BoehnerAccording to multiple congressional sources close to members briefed on the situation, a delay in funding would impose increased costs of $250 to $1,000 per child per day. Since Oct. 1, approximately 57,000 children have been apprehended at the border. To give an example of the magnitude of the $250 to $1,000 range — and the cost of congressional inaction — the collective price tag for one day of care for those children could range from $14.25 million to $57 million, a difference of $42.75 million per day.
