Treasury Probing if DeSantis Misused COVID Funds for Migrant Flights ... WHERE WAS A 'Treasury Probe' WHEN BIDEN TRANSFERRED COVID-19 FUNDS TO HOUSE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS? And other C-Virus related stories

Treasury probing if DeSantis misused COVID funds for migrant flights
The Biden administration has opened an investigation into Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ flight of migrants from the US-Mexico border to Martha’s Vineyard.
The Treasury Department is probing whether the Republican DeSantis — a potential 2024 contender for president — misused COVID-19 relief funds to ship dozens of migrants to the wealthy liberal enclave last month, Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) revealed Wednesday.
The Treasury’s inspector general informed Markey and other Massachusetts members of Congress late last week that it planned to examine the Sunshine State’s migrant spending as part of an ongoing audit into how COVID funds have been used.
Specifically, the office said in an Oct. 7 letter that it will look at whether interest earned on State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund (SLFRF) grants was “utilized by Florida relation to immigration activities and if so, what conditions and limitations apply to such use.” --->READ MORE HERE
The Biden administration moved more than $2 billion earmarked for COVID measures to deal with the influx of migrants at the border:
The Biden administration is funneling more than $2 billion toward the care of migrant children by and along the southern border, Politico reported.
That money had originally been earmarked to go toward various measures to fight the coronavirus pandemic, according to Politico.
The Department of Health and Human Services said $850 million will come from funds originally intended to expand testing for COVID-19, Politico reported.
Another $850 million will be taken out of a fund set aside to help the country rebuild its emergency stockpile of medical items like masks, respirators, and gloves. The Strategic National Stockpile is meant to support the country as it deals with an emergency, but the pandemic has basically emptied it.
Another $436 million coming from various health initiatives will also be diverted to support children at the border, according to Politico.
At the US-Mexico border, there's been an influx of migrants seeking entrance to the US and fleeing unfavorable or difficult conditions in their home countries. --->READ MORE HERE
