So, who gets to pay for the “hormone therapy” for transgendered illegals caught by Immigration officials? You guessed it, YOU do! Obama has decreed that any transgender illegals caught by border patrol will get free hormone treatment courtesy of the US taxpayer.

An immigration official testified last week[1] that the government is now picking up the tab for these people who have broken our laws to get here.

An official with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement testified Friday during a discussion on immigration detention facilities, hosted by the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, that transgender individuals are guaranteed “a right to hormone therapy.”

“With respect to treatment while in detention – the medical care standard – the standards guarantees a right to hormone therapy for individuals who need it for treatment, and even in facilities that are not covered by that standard. Our ICE House Service Corps is very vigilant on that issue to ensuring that individuals receive necessary hormone therapy,” said Kevin Landy, assistant director of the ICE office of detention policy and planning.

According to Commission Chairman Martin Castro, the Department of Homeland Security is the “largest agency that has custody of transgender individuals.”

Congratulations, America, you have now taken responsibility to pay for this foolishness.
