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.

More than 99 percent of migrants in Biden’s ‘Dedicated Dockets’ program have invalid asylum claims
Mainstream media has not covered President Biden’s “Dedicated Dockets” program which was implemented in May of 2021 as a “fast-track” asylum process. The program promises to get illegal immigrants through federal immigration court in under 300 days.
Breitbart reports that the very enticing promise has led to “more than 99 percent of illegal aliens enlisted” in the program in Los Angeles, California, “to have invalid claims for asylum and are subsequently ordered deported, new data reveals.”
Data comes from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) Center for Immigration Law and Policy which reveals that in the city’s Dedicated Dockets program, just one percent of border crossers are found to have valid claims for asylum.
Additionally, more than 72 percent of illegal aliens ordered deported failed to show up for their asylum hearings. “The bombshell data comes as the Biden administration has deployed an expansive Catch and Release network where more than 954,000 border crossers and illegal aliens have been released into the U.S. interior from February 2021 to April 2022″ adds Breitbart.
When released, they are done so on the promise that they will check in with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and show up to their asylum hearings. the UCLA data suggests very few show up to their hearings.
“Although more than 1.2 million illegal aliens have been ordered deported from the U.S. by a federal immigration judge, former Acting ICE Director Thomas Homan told Breitbart News that the Biden administration is deporting just one illegal alien for every 100 illegal aliens successfully crossing the southern border.”
“The most historic illegal alien crossings we’ve ever seen in the history of this nation … in that same year, ICE had the lowest number of removals in the history of the agency,” Homan said.
