    Washington Times: Report: DHS spends $600,000 to buy $100,000 home (Aug 16 2013)

    The Homeland Security Department spent $600,000 apiece to build houses in Arizona that would have gone for less than $100,000, according to a report in the Arizona Republic that’s raising questions in Congress.

    ...

    The Republic said Homeland Security built 21 homes and bought 20 other mobile homes for $15 million. Comparable homes go for between $70,000 and $100,000, the paper said. The homes were build to be rented to border agents and officers.

    Homeland Security officials repeatedly refused to answer the newspaper’s questions about the project, the Republic said.
