AZ Rancher Has 2,400% Increase of Illegal Immigrants on Property

A private property owner and rancher in Arizona is providing better insight into what is happening on the border with his own personal experience than the Biden administration. John Ladd’s ranch shares 10.5 miles of Mexico’s border. By 2019 he had an average of 12 illegal aliens crossing his land daily. He says Border Patrol was able to apprehend roughly half of them.

Ladd says unambiguously, the number of crossings rose right around the time Biden won the 2020 presidential election. And today, Ladd says about 300 individuals cross into his property, which sits between the US-Mexico border and Highway 92; a convenient route for smuggling.

The Border Patrol is only able to catch roughly 30 percent of the illegal immigrants, drug smugglers and human traffickers, on a “good day.”

Ladd told the Epoch Times in an interview in December, “I’m not going to say there’s no hope, but nothing is going to change as long as Biden is there and his administration is there…And what are we going to do? Let them pass?”

“These people cannot turn themselves in, they will be deported. These are the bad people. We’re dealing with the worst of the worst,” Cochise County Sheriff Mark Dannels said of those who cross in and near Ladd’s property.

The illegal immigrants coming through Ladd’s ranch aren’t seeking asylum: They’re mostly single young men dressed head-to-toe in camouflage and doing their best to avoid police forces and make it to Phoenix.

The Epoch Times reports:

Dannels’ border team has placed hundreds of trail cameras throughout the county since 2017 to detect illegal aliens, traffickers and smugglers.

“We put our cameras in areas where Border Patrol didn’t go,” he said. “We went to the river areas, we went into the mountainous areas, we went to the desert areas,” he said. The money for the cameras came from private donations—Dannels refuses to accept government money that comes with strings attached.

The drugs keep coming, but the cartels are making endless amounts of money smuggling people, so they’ve added a lucrative new source of revenue.

Currently, Dannels’ cameras are detecting about 6,000 illegal aliens a month in the county, while the Border Patrol detects another 10,000.

Detective Jake Kartchner, who is part of the sheriff’s border team led by Sergeant Tim Williams, said each illegal alien must pay the Sinaloa cartel between $7,000 and $9,000 on average to cross the border.

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.”
