I just read that CBP is identifying and arresting dozens of fugitive felons. I'm sure 46 will be signing an EO any day now to stop that.

Not to mention all the positive covid illegals being pushed out the door to spread. If facilities are at 700% capacity, isn't that what they call a super spreader? And Biden is telling US citizens that if we're good boys and girls, we might be able to gather in our backyards on the 4th with two or three other people.

$86 million to house 1200 illegals in hotels:

If that's 1200 rooms:

86,000,000/1200=$71666/365=$196/day. I guess Motel 6 didn't apply as a vendor? Only the Marriott?

Probably not 1,200 rooms.  Maybe as few as 600 rooms, so that is $400/day.  So, $200-$400 per day.  What a deal we got.

Also, $86,000,000 split among 1,200 people = $71,666 each.  It would be cheaper to give each immigrant $50k and send them on their way to California.

That money will be spread around and there will probably be hardly anything left for the hotels.

The hotels will probably be forced to take them in at a discount, losing money in the long run.

Especially considering all the cleaning and damage from housing third worlders.

Or send them back to Mexico or Central America, where $50K will last them four times or more as long. Most of these people are not coming here for asylum, they are coming for money. I hate bribes, but the smart ass answer is probably the most cost effective answer at this point.

They take up about 2 cubic inches when stored (probably a lot less when bulk packed) and they are disposable.

Many years ago I thought it would be cool to try out some of my emergency supplies for real on a camping trip.  Space blankets were one of my major disappointments.  For all the claims about the heat they reflect, it is hard to remember a time I was colder through the night - and temperatures were not particularly cold.  Another time I used a debris shelter and a big contractor trash bag and stayed warmer and more dry.  I still carry them because they're easy, and I know you can do useful things with them (especially shelter building and fire reflectors), but you definitely need to know their extensive limitations.

I found similar. I will say that the Adventure Medical ones are WAY better than the run of the mill ones. I tested this (mine was only $30) and found it to be noticeably warmer than a space blanket:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00EZEPCB4/ref=ppx_od_dt_b_asin_title_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I keep it in one vehicle and Adventure Medical blankets in another. Additionally each vehicle has a down vest I got from Costco for like $15/ea, and a cheap breathable rain jacket. If I put everything on, I should stay reasonably warm.

That said, anytime I do a road trip, I also throw a real sleeping bag and good jacket in the vehicle.

On a spring backpacking trip in NC I opted for a sleeping bag rated for 32 degrees. The coldest lows I could find for the area in weather forecasts were around 40.

Well, I was in the mountains and I didn't take into consideration non-stop 30 mph winds all night. That first night I was cold and didn't sleep well. When the second night rolled around, the temp was actually cooler and the wind didn't lie down, so I knew I was in for another cold night.

I was miserable the second night until I pulled out the old tiny space blanket in my kit and put it over my sleeping bag as a wind block. Worked like a charm!

Dozens of the over 700 unaccompanied minors who crossed the U.S.-Mexico border illegally and were transported to a shelter at a San Diego convention center have tested positive for COVID-19, according to local and health officials cited in multiple media reports.

Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) spokesperson Bonnie Preston told NBC7 on Monday that at least 69 minors had tested positive and were all asymptomatic.

At the same time, I also saw that the 46 administration is setting up in-person learning for all the kids at this facility, while teachers in San Diego are still refusing to return to classrooms to teach US citizens.
