Okay. I was listening to a live report on the ground Friday and I was so angry I was spitting nails. The reporter was watching illegals being bussed in and out of a Marriot hotel that was fenced off to look like it is under repair but the fence was really there to hide the illegal activity of Biden. . Biden is literally smuggling people in violation of Supreme Court order. They are provided with packages of information, including instructions to enroll their kids in schools ASAP and to NOT go to court appointments! Biden is committing high crimes.

Blackburn questions ICE, DHS on spending $86.9M on hotels for migrants
Republican Sen. Marsha Blackburn is demanding answers from the Department of Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement Tuesday over the $86.9 million the agencies are spending to house more than 1,200 migrant families in hotel rooms.
EXCLUSIVE: Republican Sen. Marsha Blackburn is demanding answers from the Department of Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement Tuesday over the $86.9 million the agencies are spending to house more than 1,200 migrant families in hotel rooms.
The Biden administration, earlier this month, awarded ICE an $86.9 million contract through Texas-based nonprofit Endeavors for hotel rooms near the border to provide temporary shelter and processing services for families who have been expelled from the United States but have been placed in immigration proceedings for their removal.
But Blackburn, R-Tenn., in a letter to DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and ICE acting Director Tae Johnson, is questioning the nonprofit's past financial disclosures, and how the new contract funds will be used.
Blackburn said that in 2018, Endeavors brought in "over $38 million in contributions and grants," and noted that "IRS filings show that nearly $22 million or almost half of those contributions went to salaries."
"This raises questions if half of the $86.9 million in ICE contract proceeds will likewise be allocated toward employee and executive compensation instead of migrant services or housing," Blackburn wrote.
Biden administration awards ICE $86M contract to secure hotel rooms for illegal families
The contract, through Texas-based nonprofit Endeavors, provides 1,239 beds and "other necessary services." The families will receive a comprehensive health assessment, including COVID-19 testing.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement is securing hotel rooms to handle the growing influx of illegal families crossing into the United States.
The Biden administration has awarded ICE an $86.9 million contract for hotel rooms near the border to provide temporary shelter and processing services for families who have not been expelled from the United States but have been placed in immigration proceedings for their removal.
The contract, through Texas-based nonprofit Endeavors, provides 1,239 beds and "other necessary services." The families will receive a comprehensive health assessment, including COVID-19 testing. The announcement comes days after White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters on Thursday that the White House planned to provide 2.5 million doses of AstraZeneca's COVID-19 vaccine to Mexico.
Endeavors president and CEO Jon Allman confirmed the contract with DHS to provide "critical services to migrant families, which is a continuation of services we have delivered to the migrant population since 2012." Allman deferred questions regarding specific details about the contract to ICE.
Other services provided by Endeavors for migrant families navigating the U.S. immigration process include victim services, therapeutic regiments, educational resources and mental health care. Endeavors also offers culturally appropirate, trauma-informed, child-centered case management, home study, and post-release services for unaccompanied children and their sponsors.
According to data released by the Customs and Border Protection, the number of migrant family members caught crossing the southwest border more than doubled between January and February.
Around 7,000 migrant families were caught in January compared to nearly 19,000 migrant families in February. Meanwhile, unaccompanied children and single minors caught crossing the southwest border increased from 5,694 in January to 9,297 in February.
ICE acting director Tae Johnson emphasized in a statement that the border is "not open."
"The majority of individuals continue to be expelled under the Centers for Disease Control’s public health authority,” Johnson added.
Continued: Continued from my last post, apparently a few corporations who run big hotels are in on this allowing their hotels in gig cities to be used for this smuggling. Biden it truly, really a criminal.
