August 9, 2021 Texas Republican Representative Chip Roy wrote a letter to the Department of Homeland Security asking for critical information on the border crisis. “Please provide information, including documents and correspondence relating to” the letter began, followed by 13 categories, each with multiple subcategories.

Roy’s office just now received the important information about who crossed our borders in 2021. The full response by the DHS can be seen here:

21-3082 DHS ROY RESPONSE ENCLOSURE – 1219890

In many instances DHS answers a question with a website link for further details. For example, question 2 asks for “The total number of migrants who unlawfully entered the United States and were taken into the custody of CBP since January 20, 2021.” The question further asked how the individuals were disaggregated by.

DHS responded: The nationwide Encounters page provides U.S. Border Patrol’s Title 8 apprehensions, Office of Field Operations’ inadmissible individuals under Title 8, and Title 42 expulsions for fiscal years (FY) 2020, 2021, and 2022 to date…this information can be parsed out further, by such filters as demographics, citizenship, location of apprehension/inadmissible, etc, and is available at: https://www.cbp.gov/newsroom/stats/nationwide-encounters.

Not surprisingly, when questions were directly answered, the numbers are astounding. Question 9 asks how many migrants who unlawfully entered the United States since January 20, 2021 have a connection to a Mexican drug cartel, then further asked for the names of the gangs and cartels to be identified.

183 individuals from the notorious gang M.S. 13 were apprehended, in addition to members of 13 additional gangs, resulting in a total of 479 individuals.

Question 10 asks for information on “Migrants who have unlawfully entered the United States, since January 20, 2021, who (A) were apprehended by CBP” and
(B) are included one a list maintained by the Federal Government relating to terrorists or individuals prohibited from boarding a commercial aircraft.”

DHS answered: “From January 20, 2021, through December 31, 2021, U.S. Border Patrol conducted 1,911,942 encounters nationwide to include 1,083,275 Title 42 expulsions and 828,667 Title 8 apprehensions.” It noted the same individual can potentially be subject to expulsion under Title 42 multiple times.

As for those on a terror watchlist, CBP Operations “has arrested 42 subjects who were on the terror watchlist and attempted to enter the United States illegally. These numbers are inclusive of anyone who may be on the No-Fly List.”

Question 13 addresses the high cost of illegal immigration to U.S. citizens. The answers are jaw dropping:

  • 13. The total amount of Federal funding obligated or expended for expenses relating to the care of migrants who unlawfully entered the United States since January 20, 2021, including— Amount of federal funding obligated/Expended by CBP:
    (A) housing; 0.00

    The DEMON RATS will always obfuscate, or plainly lie. They are the folowers of LUCIFER, the Father of lies!
    The DEMON RATS have abandoned all semblance of SERVING the people who elected them in office to put in place the people best suited for the service demanded of them.
    They only install sycophants who basically are slaves to their whims!

    So any evidence that the Biden’s, (Hunter, Joe, or brother Jim) are getting kickbacks from the Cartels? How else can you explain this insanity!?’

    I am and we all should be praying for Jesus Christ to return to get us out of this worldly mess this whole world is in. There is no reason for taxpayers to have to pay out millions of dollars for the care of unlawful migrants. I am a 92 year old low income widow and have
    not been offered any help from those in Washington who are giving all that money away.

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.”
