When asked on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday whether he would encourage the Department of Justice to act in investigating alleged corruption in the Biden family, President Donald Trump said Attorney General William Barr must act and fast to appoint a special prosecutor to do the job.

Trump echoed the sentiment of eleven Republican lawmakers who sent a letter Monday asking Barr to appoint a special counsel to investigate the alleged corruption.

“We’ve got to get the Attorney General to act fast,” Trump said. “He’s got to appoint somebody. This is major corruption and this has to be known about before the election and by the way, we’re doing very well. We’re gonna win the election.”

Last week, The New York Post published two reports alleging that former Vice President and 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden used his father’s position in the Obama administration to cash in big from firms in Ukraine and China.

And on Tuesday, Trump teased that more information could be coming out about Hunter Biden.

Michigan is asking its residents to help with the mess its leadership created and house migrants in their own homes. The state Department of Labor and Economic Development said volunteers who participate must commit for at least 90 days as part of the refugee support program.

In addition to opening up their homes, sponsors are expected to support newly arrived refugees by greeting them at the airport, securing and preparing initial housing, enrolling children in school and helping adults find employment.

“Programs like the Welcome Corps advance the Office of Global Michigan’s mission to make Michigan the home for opportunity for our immigrant, refugee and ethnic communities,” said Poppy Hernandez, Global Michigan Director and Michigan’s Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer. “Expanded refugee resettlement pathways empower more Michiganders to support our state’s growing refugee population and build a more welcoming and inclusive Michigan for all.”

The migrants will come from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua and Venezuela, all points of origin where many have been hoping to apply for asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Fox News reports “cities like New York and Chicago have also dealt with issues related to migrants committing crimes, as well as pushback from residents who have voiced anger and concern over the influx. Migrant shelters in those cities have largely been full, forcing officials to come up with ways to safely house the migrants.”

Last year, Massachusetts officials asked residents to open their doors as migrant shelters were full at the time. “Most importantly, if you have an extra room or suite in your home, please consider hosting a family. Housing and shelter is our most pressing need and become a sponsor family,” said Massachusetts Lt. Governor Kim Driscoll.
