Biden’s Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Health and Human Services is being sued by two watchdog groups for their communications with Catholic organizations that have been involved with aiding migrants at the southern border.

News spread that the Catholic Charities were receiving reimbursements, funded by U.S. taxpayers, to buy plane tickets for migrants as well as other expenses to help them om “their journey” so they are not left on the streets.

The lawsuit was filed Wednesday by Catholic Vote Action and Judicial Watch after the Departments failed to respond to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request made last September. “The Biden administration has refused to provide copies of communications between Catholic-affiliated charities and organizations at the border,” CatholicVote president Brian Burch said in a statement.

The purpose of the FOIA was to get communications between U.S. Customs and Border Protection and catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley, the Humanitarian Center in McAllen, Texas, and the Diocese of Brownsville in order to gauge activity.

 

“American Catholics deserve to know the full extent of the U.S. government’s role in funding and coordinating with Catholic church affiliated agencies at the border, and what role these agencies played in the record surge of illegal immigrants over the past year,” Burch added.

National Review Reports that the Catholic charity “operated” its Humanitarian Respite Center to aid migrants who crossed the southern border into the U.S. last summer. Additionally ,”Sister Norma Pimentel, CCRGV’s Executive Director, stated in an interview with journalist Ali Bradley on February 3 that the organization is reimbursed with “taxpayer’s money” for some of their efforts.”

The first month of 2023 at the southern border is already looking bleak; just take a look at the numbers. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in El Paso, Texas have seized over 500 pounds of hard drugs in January alone.

Additionally, the agency apprehended 62 people they were able to identify as having outstanding arrest warrants. Among the criminals were sex offenders.

The devastating numbers are not surprising, given that in December, the El Paso mayor declared a sate of emergency “after record numbers of people were released onto city streets and sidewalks by the Biden administration” reports The Center Square.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott also “sent 400 National Guard troops to restore order and provide humanitarian assistance” adds the media outlet. Border Patrol data showed in December, 55,766 illegal foreign nationals were apprehended in the El Paso Sector.

There were also 32,632 known and recorded gotaways in December, meaning they were able to evade getting captured by law and immigration officials. law enforcement officers told The Center Square that despite the skyrocket high numbers, “these seizures and apprehensions represent a fraction of the amount of people and drugs being trafficked to the southern border between ports of entry.”
