Yes, you read that correctly "reprogramming department funding" ....

HHS reprogramming department funding to facilitate resettling ‘unaccompanied’ Central American teens

.....Yesterday, HHS Secretary Alex Azar told the Senate Appropriations Labor-HHS-Education Subcommittee that the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), which cares for and resettles unaccompanied alien children (UACs), will run out of cash before the end of the year. That is because, as Congressional Quarterly (paywall) reported in a summary of the hearing, at a pace of about 300-350 UACs arriving each day, HHS is taking custody of roughly 70-80 children from CBP each day who are not immediately released to other family members. Azar said that there are currently 12,340 mainly Central American children, in HHS custody and bed space is almost full.

We’ve been spending roughly $1.3 billion a year on this program, and Azar revealed at the hearing that the administration transferred $446 million from other HHS programs to help fund the UAC program and that it recently transferred another $385 million...........

Money can be "reprogrammed' from HHS to assist unaccompanied minors, but money can't be "reprogrammed" to complete the wall??   Am I missing something here??

$1.3 billion to 'resettle' unaccompanied teens isn't enough?  How about we significantly cut back on the number we're allowing through!
