The office of Department of Homeland Security Inspector General Joseph V. Cuffari is allegedly investigating recent contracts made by Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Human Health Services. Endeavors Inc. recently signed two contracts to help the two departments house migrants.

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.

In a series of letters, Republican lawmakers earlier demanded to know exactly which hotels are housing these families, including the meals and rooms provided to them. They also called for a full accounting of all expenses and all communications between the parties involved.

This contract is suspicious for several reasons, the members claimed. Among them, Endeavors hired a former ICE official and Biden-Harris transition team advisor as its senior director for migrant services and federal affairs right after the contract was finalized. It was also a no-bid contract. The three organizations had until May 27th to hand it all over. Now, according to sources at Fox News, the IG is investigating it himself.

During a heated testimony, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas expressed his support for amnesty and a path to citizenship for those who have entered the United States illegally.

Mayorkas tried to dodge at first, saying “only Congress can provide legal status or amnesty through the laws to those who enter the country illegally.” When prompted by Republican Congressman Andy Biggs of Arizona who said “we’re not talking about who passes laws or not, but your philosophy as the DHS Secretary, would you support amnesty?”

Mayorkas responded, “Congressman, I fully support and have for many years, legislative reform that once and for all fixes our broken immigration system…”

“So I take it that you won’t make that statement now…” said Biggs.

“No I will, if you’ll allow me” Mayorkas said, “and it involves a path to citizenship for those who have been in this country for many years, who have contributed to the wellbeing of our country.”

“The answer is you would support amnesty of some kind” Biggs said of his response.
