U.S. granted the UN $1.3 billion in 2023 to aid illegals invading America

Based on available government spending data, more than $1 billion in funding from the government has been granted to agencies assisting migrants.
"We are actually funding our own border crisis," Todd Bensman, a senior national security fellow at the Center for Immigration Studies, an anti-mass migration think tank. "And it's provided by, ultimately, the United States taxpayer."

Before President Joe Biden's term as president, America shelled out around $500 million per year to the UN's main migration arm, the International Organization for Migration (IOM). But beginning in the Biden administration, the funding skyrocketed to nearly $1.3 billion in 2023. This amount is more than double what it had been under former President Donald Trump's administration, as per

As per government spending data, most of the money comes from the Department of State and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). A total of $547 million over two years ending in 2023 has also been voluntarily contributed to IOM from the Population, Refugees and Migration, which is under the State Department.

Moreover, the UN's "Regional Refugee and Migrant Response Plan" update for 2024 is requesting $1.6 billion to be distributed to 17 Latin American and Caribbean countries. It is also receiving U.S. grants and has been allocated $372 million in cash and vouchers and "multipurpose cash assistance" during 2024 for 624,300 migrants in Central and South America who are headed for the U.S. border.
