$4.5 million a day, or $755 per person per day.

That’s what taxpayers are shelling out to detain families on the border. To a logical person, we could put these families up in extremely nice hotel rooms for that much. The Ritz-Carlton in NYC goes for $795 a day and I hear they supply shampoo, soap, showered and everything! Wonder who is making all the money off these detainees. Haven’t heard it discussed, but would be interesting to know.
