Todd Bensman, a Fellow at the Center for Immigration Studies reports from a migrant camp, in Reynosa, Mexico, that representatives of International Organization for Migrations (IOM) an agency of the United Nations are distributing debit cards of $800 in value to each family of migrants headed towards the US border.
“The IOM workers said a migrant family of four gets about $800 a month,” says Bensman in a tweet with pictures from one of IOM’s distributing locations. “I watched long lines of migrants get their UN debit cards,” he continues.
The United States is the largest provider of financial contributions to the United Nations, providing 22 percent of the entire UN budget in 2020.
