McCarthy: Biden is the migrants’ president

Kevin McCarthy

Sara Carter interviewed house minority leader Kevin McCarthy on “The Sara Carter Show” podcast Thursday about the border crisis.

McCarthy sent a letter to President Joe Biden on Friday requesting a meeting to discuss the rising numbers of unaccompanied migrant children at the U.S.-Mexico border and has yet to receive a response.

“I sent him the letter asking for a meeting, no response whatsoever,” McCarthy told Carter.

According to McCarthy’s letter, 117,000 unaccompanied alien children will be crossing into the border this year.

At the height of the Obama administration’s unaccompanied minor crisis from 2013, there were over 66,000 unaccompanied minors that were accounted for that year, Carter noted.

“The worst part about this, it’s created by Biden, this is Biden’s border crisis,” McCarthy said. “Had he not reversed the actions of the last administration, we wouldn’t be here today.”

“He’s the migrants’ president, he’s encouraging this to happen,” McCarthy added.

Carter noted that the violence at the border has increased tremendously since Biden took office.

“[Border Patrol agents] actually said the policies that were put in place during the Trump administration mitigated a lot of this of this disaster, especially in the last year of President Trump in office, they noticed a huge decrease because people knew they weren’t going to get away with it,” Carter said.

“It’s unbelievable how quickly the border has become a crisis because of the new administration,” McCarthy said. “100,000 is an unbelievable number, just in that first month. What do we think it’s going to be three months from now?”

McCarthy will be traveling to the border with a committee and is hoping President Biden will meet with him when he returns to discuss solutions to the crisis.

“I hope the President will meet with us when we come back. Because we have solutions for the problems. And we want to make sure our borders secure,” McCarthy told Carter.

McCarthy is urging his fellow Americans to speak up and take action against the new administration’s rules.

“Don’t stay quiet. Speak up right now,” McCarthy said. “Follow what you’re doing and you get educated on it. Call the White House. Call the speaker. Tell them you want action taken on this. You don’t want it to continue to be the way it is.”

“There is a crisis at the border, no matter what the Biden administration is trying to say to you, they are not telling you, the American people, the truth. They’re just not telling you the truth,” Carter said.

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.”
