A 280,000 square foot compound in Alexandria, Virginia in the Crystal City neighborhood, will be rented by the government to ‘process’ illegals. It will cost taxpayers almost $65,000 monthly, before any other expenses are included. Another 3,100 government employees will be added to the federal payroll. The website,ArlingtonNow.com, quotes sources saying salaries at the facility will range from $34,400 to $157,100, and also identifies the building as “Crystal Plaza 4, a 46-year old office building.” Once again, Judicial Watch rings the bell.
UPDATE 3:06 PM CST: A commenter (many thanks) just left a link to Missouri Congresswoman Ann Wagner asking Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) Director, Richard Cordray, about the high cost of this building:
During a Congressional hearing on Tuesday, an angry Wagner asked him to explain who authorized a $215 million expenditure on the “untouchable” agency’s new headquarters, Cordray sounded eerily like former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who offered a similar response to questions posed in Congressional hearings last year about the 2012 murders of four Americans at the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
“Why does that matter to you?” Cordray condescendingly responded to Wagner’s legitimate question. More at Breitbart, including a video (and transcript) of Cordray interrupting Wagner “four times in 30 seconds.”
