    Trump needs to address and remedy this. Now.

    “Surprisingly, under the Trump administration, grants to extremist organizations have actually increased. As we noted last year, “between 2017 and 2018, the amount of taxpayers’ money given to organizations either influenced or controlled by Islamist activists more than tripled from $4 million to $13.5 million. Under the Obama administration, the amount given to Islamist-linked organizations averaged a mere $1.7 million each year.””

    the overall make up of government workers is heavily Liberal. they are working overtime trying to defeat the Right under President Trumps nose. he really needs to start draining the swamp.

    Disgusting and disgraceful in the extreme. Whoever in DHS approved this desperately needs to be fired. Personally, I don't believe the Director was aware this was going on, and $100K while significant, isn't but a drop in the DHS budget. Don

    Ultimately, funding for this s**t is always buried somewhere deep inside some bill in Congress. Wouldn't be surprised if it was Ilhan Omar or Rahshid Tlaib that are behind it. They regularly speak at CAIR fundraisers.

    I guess those Obama numbers don’t count the $153.5 billion given to Iran.

    I think $200k needs to be devoted to CAIR. To the investigating if it. ( as well as any amounts currently given). It is a anti America, terrorist group.

    The bigger issue is that DHS has the power to grant money to NGOs like CAIR.

    Unfortunately, the FedGov attracts a huge number of people with the predilection for growing the government, and "justifying" its own existence. And inside the Beltway, that number goes up exponentially.

    That wasn't taxpayer money.

    That was Iran's own money which we confiscated because we were angry that the Iranians overthrew our puppet dictator, the Shah.

    It can be debated whether Obama was right to give them their money, but the fact is, it was Iranian money that he gave back, not US taxpayer money.

    DHS is an Orwellian, unconstitutional government entity which should be disbanded forthwith.

    Furthermore, George W Bush and all of the politicians in Congress who voted to create DHS, should be charged with violating their oath to uphold the US Constitution.

    If only there were some mechanism where a patriotic, swamp-draining president could, uh, "veto" these swampy bills and make Congress present clean bills.

    One can only dream...

    Until there's a line item veto, it will remain a dream. But we all know the congress critters will never allow that. Each gets their little carve out to please their donors.

    "Allow it"? Congress can't override a veto without bi-partisan cooperation. Trump should veto everything that has any swampy attachments. You think Congress would dare team up to override him to very publicly protect their swamp? Trump would destroy them by Tweet. Who else but Trump can do this? It's an incredible opportunity.
