Guess How Much it Costs Every Month to Protect Ed. Sec. DeVos?

Liberals complain about how much conservatives spend on different things, such as the costs of President Trump regular visits to his Mar A Lago resort in Florida. If they are upset of the outrageous cost for Secret Service officers to protect Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, it’s their own fault for their violent and aggressive behavior since her confirmation.

The Education Department is reimbursing the U.S. Marshals Service roughly $1 million per month to help cover the costs of providing a security detail to Education Secretary Betsy DeVos.

A Memorandum of Understanding that was agreed to on March 28 stipulates that the Education Department will pay $7.78 million to the U.S. Marshals Service through Sept. 30. The agreement reaches retroactively back to Feb. 14, just days after DeVos was blocked from entering a public school in Washington, D.C., by protesters.

Prior to that incident DeVos had been protected by department officials, which is the norm for Cabinet-level officials. The Marshals Service is a federal law enforcement agency under the Department of Justice that acts as the enforcement arm of the federal courts.
