The omnibus spending bill that just passed the U.S. Congress slashes the budget of a program that pays to incarcerate illegal aliens who have committed crimes in the United States, the Arizona Republic reports.
“A massive 2014 federal spending bill passed this week by Congress would cut nearly $60 million–or about 25 percent–from a federal program that reimburses states and local governments for the cost of incarcerating undocumented immigrants convicted of crimes,” the Arizona Republic’s Erin Kelly wrote. “Local and state taxpayers will have to pick up a bigger share of the tab as Congress moves to reduce the annual funding of the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) from $238 million to $180 million in 2014.”
