Federal Budget Includes Money for Groups Accused of Aiding Illegal Immigrants in Arizona

The new federal budget signed by President Joe Biden on Saturday includes funding to continue providing shelter to illegal immigrants in Arizona, even as many were reducing operations or preparing to close after Republicans defeated a controversial immigration and foreign aid bill.

Lawmakers approved a $1.2 trillion budget to avoid a government shutdown despite opposition in the U.S. House, where the funding bill proposed by Speaker Mike Johnson received the support of 101 Republicans. A total of 112 Republicans and 22 Democrats voted against the spending bill in the House.

The federal budget reportedly includes funding for the controversial Casa Alitas shelter in Pima County, a project of Catholic Charities and Catholic Community Services, which was accused by Representative Tom Tiffany (R-WI-07) of “aiding and facilitating illegal immigration” in a February post to social media that drew the attention of billionaire tech mogul Elon Musk.
