A month after Health and Human Services and Immigration and Customs Enforcement signed a contract with Endeavors Inc. to house migrant families, Reps. Jim Jordan (R-OH), James Comer (R-KY) and Tom McClintock (R-CA) are demanding more information surrounding the deal.

Previously, all ICE revealed was that it was an $86.9 million deal that would provide 1,200 beds for families. These families spend less than 72 hours in these hotels at a time. HHS also has a contract with Endeavors Inc. for about $530 million.

Now, in a series of letters, the GOP representatives want to know exactly which hotels are housing these families, including the meals and rooms provided to them. They are also calling for a full accounting of all expenses and all communications between the parties involved. The letters have been penned to Endeavors President and CEO Jon Allman, HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra, and Acting ICE Director Tae Johnson.

This contract is suspicious for several reasons, the members say. Among them, Endeavors hired a former ICE official and Biden-Harris transition team advisors as its senior director for migrant services and federal affairs right after the contract was finalized. It was also a no-bid contract. So, Jordan, Comer, and McClintock have given the three organizations till May 27th to hand it all over.

The first month of 2023 at the southern border is already looking bleak; just take a look at the numbers. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in El Paso, Texas have seized over 500 pounds of hard drugs in January alone.

Additionally, the agency apprehended 62 people they were able to identify as having outstanding arrest warrants. Among the criminals were sex offenders.

The devastating numbers are not surprising, given that in December, the El Paso mayor declared a sate of emergency “after record numbers of people were released onto city streets and sidewalks by the Biden administration” reports The Center Square.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott also “sent 400 National Guard troops to restore order and provide humanitarian assistance” adds the media outlet. Border Patrol data showed in December, 55,766 illegal foreign nationals were apprehended in the El Paso Sector.

There were also 32,632 known and recorded gotaways in December, meaning they were able to evade getting captured by law and immigration officials. law enforcement officers told The Center Square that despite the skyrocket high numbers, “these seizures and apprehensions represent a fraction of the amount of people and drugs being trafficked to the southern border between ports of entry.”
