Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas visited the United States/Mexico border in Yuma, Arizona on Wednesday, before then heading to Texas. Sara Carter, who has many sources in the area was provided proof that Mayorkas’ visit is nothing more than “smoke and mirrors.”

Mayorkas met with Customs and Border Protection employees Wednesday morning and then local leaders in the afternoon. Mayorkas told Yuma’s news outlet KYMA he was focused on public safety as well as plans to continue the ‘Remain in Mexico Program’ in partnership with Mexico.

However, insiders say the processing center was emptied overnight before Mayorkas arrived. Carter tweeted exclusive intel she received from sources regarding Mayorkas’ trip:

“EXCLUSIVE: According to sources in #YUMA the sector’s Centralized Processing Center (CPC) was emptied of people overnight before @DHSgov Secretary Mayorkas. ‘There were two brazen load-ups along the Colorado River that went unanswered due to no agent to respond.’ Why? If the CPC was empty why was there no agent available to respond? BP Agents are being stopped from doing their job and protecting the nation #BidensBorderCrisis it’s all smoke and mirrors.”

    The Democrat Party’s formula is simple:
    American tax-dollars* + Open-borders** – Voter-ID = Illegal-votes = Political-power.
    * American tax-payer be damned.
    ** American security be damned.

    So, do you mind giving us a few more details like why was it emptied Was it to try to trick us into believing ‘illegal aliens’ weren’t coming to invade our country??
    Or, a dirty trick being played on our border agents – like they weren’t anywhere to be seen – to do their jobs??

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.”
