    President Biden has kept his promise to reverse his predecessor’s immigration policies with a hurricane of executive orders, but doing so has required more than signing documents he doesn’t understand.
    As President Trump spent tens of millions of tax dollars to keep illegal aliens out of the country, Biden is spending tens of millions to let them in.Two news reports suggest that figure has already surpassed $100 million. Biden is housing illegals in hotels because 'detention facilities” are packed to the rafters, and he will fly them all over the country. And he’s spending millions more to stop building the border wall President Trump started. 1,200 Illegals in Hotels - A nonprofit in Texas has received $86 million to put illegals up in hotel rooms, Axios reported on Saturday.The big bucks come from a six-month contract with an outfit called Endeavors 'to provide critical services” to the illegals, a spokesman told the Washington Examiner. The tax money will pay for 1,200 illegals to stay in hotels:



    Even worse, Biden plans to continue waging germ warfare on Americans by permitting the illegals to stay. As The New American reported in early March, Biden has been releasing COVID-infected migrants to hop buses and head for who knows where. Last week, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas admitted that his agency released migrants without testing.But now, apparently, Biden thinks buses aren’t good enough for the illegal migrants. Instead, he’ll fly them where they need to go, the Examiner reported:



    The Examiner did not report how much that would cost. Stopping Wall Costs Millions - Meanwhile, a former border agent reported that stopping construction on the border wall is costing taxpayers a fortune.Writing for Bretibart and citing a government source, former border lawman Randy Clark wrote that idling construction sites cost $6 million daily...

    It always gets better when the whole story comes out.. Corruption at its finest..

    EXCLUSIVE: ICE gave $87M no-bid contract to business with Biden ties, raising conflict of interest questions

    The Biden administration did not solicit bids for a multimillion contract to house migrant families in hotels and instead gave the massive contract to an organization whose leadership has ties to the White House, including one official who was on the Biden transition team.

    In its rush to stand up facilities to hold families who come over the southern border illegally in rising numbers, the Biden administration signed a deal that a member of Congress and people with knowledge of the matter said presented a conflict of interest and wasted existing government facilities.

    Last month, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (an agency of the Department of Homeland Security) signed an $87 million contract to acquire and oversee an operation involving 1,200 hotel beds to house migrant families in Arizona and Texas. The contract was given to the nonprofit organization Family Endeavors, based out of San Antonio, Texas, which has no previous history as an ICE contractor.

    But Family Endeavors does have a former senior official on the Biden transition team in its leadership: former ICE official Andrew Lorenzen-Strait, identified as a potential broker in the deal by Rep. Andrew Clyde of Georgia, who is tracking the contract, as well as two others with knowledge of the situation.

    On Jan. 20, Inauguration Day, Family Endeavors announced that Lorenzen-Strait would become its senior director for migrant services and federal affairs, meaning that he would be the organization’s liaison to the federal government. Within two months, Lorenzen-Strait secured the contract.

    Government contracts are supposed to be awarded through an open competitive process, outlined in the Federal Acquisition Regulation. Information obtained through the Federal Procurement Data System indicates that ICE never opened the contract to outside companies and organizations but went with an internal candidate who had significant insider connections.

    “The bid was not advertised for competition, as is the norm,” said one person who is familiar with how ICE brokered the deal with Family Endeavors.

    “Unless certain exceptions apply, an agency must compete the contract,” said Carol Thompson, a partner with the Washington-based Federal Practice Group law firm.

    Texas Gov. Abbott blames Biden as allegations emerge of sexual assault at child migrant facility
    'The Biden administration is now presiding over the abuse of children,' Abbott said


    Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott demanded that the White House close a San Antonio facility housing migrant children Wednesday following allegations that children there were being sexually assaulted.

    During a Wednesday evening press conference, Abbott said he received tips that alleged the children at the Freeman Coliseum facility were being sexually abused and were not eating enough.

    HUNDREDS OF MIGRANTS CAUGHT AT US-MEXICO BORDER AS VIDEO OF YOUNG BOY RAISES PRESSURE ON BIDEN ADMINISTRATION

    "These problems are a byproduct of President Biden’s open border policies and the lack of planning for the fallout for those disastrous policies," Abbott told reporters.

    The governor said that separate complaints were sent to the Department of Health and Human Services and the Texas Department of Family and Protective services Wednesday, alleging four different kinds of child abuse.

    The agencies then informed the state leadership.

    Abbott said allegations of sexual assault, an insufficient number of staffers, children not eating, and an inability to separate COVID-19 positive children from virus-free children, were the most critical complaints the Texas government has received.

    "In short, this facility is a health and safety nightmare. The Biden administration is now presiding over the abuse of children," Abbott told reporters, calling on the White House to immediately shut down the facility.

    Of course no children were detained, or separated during the tRump administration, or were they ?

    500,000 Kids, 30 Million Hours: Trump’s Vast Expansion of Child Detention
    But new data shows that over the last four years, detention times lengthened as the number of children held at the border soared to almost half a million. The detentions, which include both unaccompanied children and children with their families, peaked last year at over 300,000, with 40 percent held longer than the 72-hour limit set by a patchwork of legislation and a court settlement.“The government regularly violated the 72-hour rule,” said Dr. Bill O. Hing, a University of San Francisco law professor and immigration lawyer who was part of an inspection group touring border stations in the summer of 2019 at the height of the crisis. Hing said he witnessed minors being held for increasingly long times in unsafe facilities designed to hold adults, not children and babies.
    As the losing hypocrites whine, they have lost sight of the fact their cult leader vastly increased detention of children while separating them from their parents.

    When kids cross the border without their parents shows they were separated before they got here. Besides Biden is your president now and what is happening on the border now is on his watch...

    Tell me... just what does that say about the character of the illegals who are entering our country? I'll tell you what it tells me... those self-centered... low life... POS parents don't give a crap about the welfare of their children... period!!! They care more about themselves than their own children or they would be immigrating legally just like all the immigrants have done in the past. Those immigrants... many who left their wife and children in the care of relatives back home who came over here legally to work and get situated in order to bring the rest of his family over safe and legally which often took years for many. Those are the kind of morally decent ...upstanding... law abiding individuals that we want for future citizens not the self entitled... immoral criminals that put their children's lives at risk as a means of relying on pity for accepting them into our country.

    Tell me fx... which category would you fall in?

    Did you even hear of the expression... taking responsibility for your own actions? Why don't you take on the responsibility for all the illegals instead of trying to force it upon all the moral... law abiding citizens of this country?

    Here's another question for you? If you did decide to come here illegally for a chance of a better life for you and your family... would you come alone at first or would you be the type that would take your wife and young children with you to rob a bank with the hopes that the police wouldn't shoot you running away... or better yet... using as human shields?

    You may want these kind of people with questionable... criminal and immoral characters as neighbors but many... like myself do not! Hell... you might even let them watch your children sometime but I wouldn't even want them around mine.

    All I can say is that it's a wonder you and your loony leftists liberals didn't blame Trump for incarcerating all the United State's criminals and taking them away from their children in the four years he was in office!!!

    Biden administration announces sky-high border numbers, looks to blame Trump

    Nearly 19,000 unaccompanied children were encountered in March, the highest recorded.

    Border officials encountered 172,000 migrants at the border in March, a 71% increase from February and the latest indicator of the extent of the crisis at the southern border -- but one that Biden officials are trying to blame on the Trump administration.

    Of the 172,000 migrants encountered, the majority were single adults, and included 18,890 unaccompanied children -- a 100% increase from the already high numbers encountered in February, and the highest number recorded. In February, 100,441 migrants overall were encountered.

    "CBP has experienced an increase in encounters and arrests. This is not new. Encounters have continued to increase since April 2020, and our past experiences have helped us be better prepared for the challenges we face this year," Acting Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Commissioner Troy Miller said in a statement. "We are committed to balancing the need to maintain border security, care for those in our custody, and keep the American people and our workforce safe."

    The Biden administration has been tackling a surge in migrant numbers in recent months, a surge which has escalated into a major crisis, although officials have instead described it as a "challenge."

    While single adults and family units can be returned via Title 42 public health protections, the administration has not been applying it to unaccompanied children. Meanwhile, Mexico has been refusing to take back family units with children under the age of seven. The result has been a re-introduction of so-called "catch-and-release" policies by which some migrants are released into the interior, and pictures have emerged of packed facilities for migrant children.

    In March, 103,900 individuals were expelled under Title 42, representing 60% of total encounters.

    Republicans have accused the administration of fueling the crisis by rolling back Trump-era policies like the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) which kept migrants in Mexico for their hearings -- as well as narrowing interior enforcement priorities and halting construction of the border wall.

    But the Biden administration has instead blamed the Trump administration,

    "We're continuing to dig out of the hole left by the previous administration on immigration," an administration official said on the call with reporters.
