House Republicans: Biden Diverting Funds from Americans to Give Hotel Rooms to Illegal Aliens:
A group of House Republicans wants to know how many billions of dollars in American taxpayer money President Joe Biden is diverting from United States citizens to provide border crossers with hotel rooms and transportation into the U.S.
In a letter to Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Xavier Becerra, ten House Republicans — including Reps. Byron Donalds (R-FL) and Andy Biggs (R-AZ) — are asking the administration to disclose how many billions in taxpayer money it is using to provide border crossers with public services like hotel rooms and transportation.
The House Republicans write:
… we are deeply concerned about reports that the Department of Health and Human Services has diverted more than $2 billion that Congress appropriated for COVID-19 [Chinese coronavirus]-related health initiatives toward covering the cost of housing and transportation of unaccompanied immigrant children. Every child on earth deserves dignity and a safe place to live and grow, but it is the Biden administration’s policies that are encouraging children to make the dangerous trek to our southern border. This must end for the safety and security of these migrant children, the lives of whom your administration’s policies are putting at risk each and every day. [Emphasis added] --->READ MORE HERE
ICE to place migrant families in hotel to avoid releasing onto Arizona streets:
Federal immigration officials in Arizona plan to place in a hotel migrant families who have illegally come across the U.S.-Mexico border as part of an effort to avoid openly releasing people onto the street, according to a border mayor.
Family Endeavors, a nonprofit organization, will take over a local hotel in Yuma, Arizona, where it will hold families who have been transferred from the custody of Border Patrol to Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Families are only expected to stay in the hotels for three days before being transported to shelters across Arizona and California when they are released into the United States, according to the top city official.
Holding families in hotels is out of the ordinary and started earlier this year under the Biden administration. ICE has family residential centers nationwide but has let the facilities sit empty, instead opting to dole out tens of millions of dollars since March to place families in hotels.
Yuma Mayor Doug Nicholls criticized the plan in a phone call Tuesday, saying he believes the plan to rely on a hotel "actually encourages" more people to make the journey to the U.S. and cross the border because migrants "know how they're going to be released to an American hotel where they get room service and other — whatever's going on." --->READ MORE HERE
