Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich appeared on “The Sara Carter Show” Podcast Monday to talk about and the lawsuits he’s filed surrounding the border crisis. Right now, these suits have just begun and his office is still in the midst of discovery.

As they’ve been searching emails to and from Immigration Customs Enforcement, Border Customs Protection and the White House, they’ve found troubling messages. Brnovich told Carter they’ve only been searching for a day since the interview, but they already found evidence of impropriety. “Activists emailed the White House and said, because it’s Black History Month, you have to stop deporting people,” Brnovich said. “And within days, there was a directive from ICE basically saying, we’re going to stop deporting people.”

Then, they also deposed an ICE officer who shared a troubling update from the last 100+ days. “He basically said that as a result of these Biden policies, there are people not being picked up,” Brnovich said.

This policy doesn’t just apply to people who attempt to immigrate from now on, but even those in custody now. “We have people right now in Arizona prisons in short term custody,” Brnovich said, “that have been convicted of crimes like arson, manslaughter, assault, sexual assault, and they are scheduled to be released from Arizona prison or from custody.”

Suddenly, Brnovich says an immigration problem becomes a “threat to national security [and] to public safety.” Yet at the same time, Vice President and border czar Harris is “not doing anything. She doesn’t care, and it’s it’s sad.”

Now, there are more than 20,000 migrant children in custody. It’s expected that 2 million people will cross the border illegally this year, according to Brnovich. Just in the last three months were over 450,000 people, roughly the city population of Minneapolis, that crossed the southern border.

With the rise of the border crisis coinciding with Biden’s election into office, Brnovich says voting is the solution. “Elections have consequences,” he said.

IG Audit shows nonprofit wasted $17 million taxpayer dollars on hotels to not house illegal foreign nationals

An audit report by the Inspector General shows enraging information as to exactly how millions of dollars from the American people were completely wasted.

One doesn’t need to read past the IG report’s headline to become furious: “ICE Spent Funds on Unused Beds, Missed COVID-19 Protocols and Detention Standards while Housing Migrant Families in Hotels.”

In summary, an unbelievable $17 million was wasted on not housing illegal foreign nationals. At the heart of the story is Endeavors, a nonprofit which has received half a billion dollars in taxpayer money “through no-bid government contracts to house foreign nationals who illegally entered the U.S. and were released by the Biden administration instead of being deported” reports The Center Square.

The audit evaluated the process used by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to grant no bid contracts to Endeavors and their compliance with federal law, the article explains.

The report evaluated an $86.9 million sole source contract first awarded to Endeavors earlier this year. The contract was awarded for six months to provide “temporary shelter and processing services for families who have not been expelled and are therefore placed in immigration proceedings for their removal from the United States,” The Center Square previously reported.

Months after it received its first no bid contract, Endeavors received a second $530 million contract and hired former Biden administration official Andrew Lorenzen-Straight as its senior director for migrant services and federal affairs, Axios reported.

The Center Square explains:

Sole source contracts are used when an agency can demonstrate the contract meets specific and justified criteria. If contracts don’t meet one of the criteria, they must be awarded through an open competitive process.

Endeavors has no professional history of providing housing services and has never provided beds or all-inclusive emergency family residential services, OIG auditors found. Those critical of DHS’ contract process argue the agency should be awarding contracts through an open competitive process to ensure that those bidding for funds can offer the services they claim they can provide.

Under the contract in question, for six months between March and September 2021, Endeavors was responsible for providing 1,239 beds and other necessary services in hotels. It used six hotels and repurposed them as Emergency Family Reception Sites to accommodate families staying less than three days while ICE considered conditions of release, including alternatives to detention.

The IOG made four recommendations for ICE to improve its contracting and oversight of hotel facility management and operations. “ICE concurred with one recommendation and didn’t concur with three. Based on information ICE provided in its response, the IOG said it considered one recommendation resolved and closed, and three recommendations administratively closed.”
