The Vice President of the United States claimed, only days ago, that the U.S. southern border is “secure.” Not only did her comment receive severe pushback from lawmakers and border agents and agencies, but the American people don’t buy her rhetoric.

A poll published Thursday by RMG Research shows a majority of Americans “believe cartels have more control over the southern border than the U.S. government.”

Sixty-one percent of registered voters surveyed said that cartels had greater control of the border, compared to 19 percent who said the government has more control. Twenty percent of respondents were “not sure.”

National Review reports:

The poll surveyed 1,200 registered voters from September 20 to 21, and was conducted online by Scott Rasmussen. The margin of error is +/- 2.8 percent.

The majority of voters surveyed, 54 percent, responded that the federal government is not “seriously trying to secure the border and reduce illegal immigration.”

Sixty percent of voters said the “failure of the federal government to secure the southern border” is a bigger problem that governors like Ron DeSantis sending illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard, and 63 percent said it is “hypocritical” for sanctuary cities, like Martha’s Vineyard, to complain when illegal immigrant are sent there.

Another poll by CRC Research obtained exclusively National Review showed that 63 percent agree that sanctuary cities like Chicago, New York City, and Washington, D.C., should share the burden of having illegal immigrants with border states.

The rampant hypocrisy of Democratic lawmakers was on full display after Florida Governor Ron DeSantis sent 50 illegal immigrants to the Martha’s Vineyard, the liberal playground vacation destination in Massachusetts.

Within 24 hours, Democratic lawmakers in Martha’s Vineyard blasted the Florida governor for being “cruel,” then gave the illegal immigrants shelter and food, before putting them on busses and taking them away; ridding their town of the burdensome migrants they claim to support.

Washington, D.C., mayor Muriel Bowser has also said her city “is not a border town,” is “not Texas,” and doesn’t have the infrastructure to handle this type of and level of immigration to our city.”

The poll also shows voters believe ending illegal immigration is important. 83 percent of respondents said it was important, 55 percent said it would have a positive effect on the economy, and 44 percent said it would “significantly reduce crime.”

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.”
