Malia Obama’s Spring Break Cost Taxpayers Over $115,000

Malia Obama Spring Break

Remember Malia Obama’s controversial Spring Break vacation to Mexico with 12 of her friends and about 25 Secret Service agents earlier this year? Judicial Watch has released records detailing the cost of that vacation to American taxpayers.

According to the records, obtained from the U.S. Secret Service as a result of a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit, the total cost of the trip comes to $115,500.87 — not including the salaries and expenses of the 25 Secret Service agents for their babysitting services.

From Judicialwatch.org:

The following is a breakdown of the costs as detailed in the documents:

Ground transportation: $23,964.81
Lodging: $21,682.92
Airfare: $47,767.34
“Vouchers”: $21,636.14 (not itemized)
Support Charges: $449.66 (travel for one from Mexico City to Oaxaca, not itemized)

Malia Obama’s spring break trip evoked controversy after the Obama White House reportedly ordered the removal of press reports detailing the trip. On March 19,2012, numerous online press outlets reported that the president’s 13-year-old daughter, Malia Obama, was on a Spring Break trip to Mexico accompanied by 25 U.S. Secret Service Agents and as many as 12 of her friends. However, shortly after the press reports surfaced they were quickly removed from the Internet. The trip took place shortly after the Texas Department of Public Safety issued a statement advising students on Spring Break “to avoid Mexico.”

      Where was the outrage when the Bush broads were thrashing 6th street in Austin every weekend getting drunk with secret service members in tow at taxpayer expense?

      These children have given up their childhood as a result of their father running this country, and if the government can pay $700 for a hammer, then this is a small price to pay for a ONE TIME trip.
