New information over the weekend revealed that the Biden administration had help from a vast network of nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) that spent most of their money and time helping illegal immigrants settle in the United States.
The report from the New York Post comes as polls shows Americans rejecting the Biden administration’s open border policies and as the Supreme Court issued a temporary stay keeping Title 42 in place.
According to the report, the White House has relied on NGOs that presented themselves as charities or religiously affiliated nonprofits to shelter and feed migrants and help purchase plane and bus tickets and other resources.
Even though the NGOs are partly funded by private donations, a good chunk of their money comes from American taxpayers, resulting in the hidden true cost of the border crisis behind “charities.”
In spring, Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas told Congress that the department was asking for more funding for this very purpose.
Today, the DHS is asking for $1 billion for various NGO programs. These organizations operate as the final link in a vast transnational human-smuggling operation with cartels, promising those who pay them to get to the border transportation to any location of their choosing within the U.S.
An investigation launched by the Heritage Foundation’s Oversight Project revealed that NGOs are providing these services scattered across the country in 431 out of 435 congressional districts.
One of the NGOs was Catholic Charities’ facility in San Juan, Texas.
Because of these agencies and their work in spreading migrants around the country, many states in this country have felt the effects of the current border crisis.
With the new incoming GOP majority in the House of Representatives, many have called on Republicans to immediately begin aggressive oversight of Biden, Mayorkas, and the open-borders advocates who continue to perpetuate this border crisis.
Some officials at Heritage and many lawmakers have called for the impeachment of Secretary Mayorkas to demonstrate the consequences of opening America’s borders and undermining the nation’s sovereignty and security.
Others have also called for defunding the DHS’ ability to continue the crisis, canceling funds for NGOs who conduct themselves in this way.
These officials argue that American taxpayers should not pay for the mass resettlement of illegal immigrants simply to the open-borders policies of the Democratic Party, including the massive omnibus spending bill last week signed by the President.
Despite telling the American public that the border remains secure, thousands of migrants continue to cross the U.S. southern border illegally, along with drug cartels transporting illicit drugs like fentanyl into the hands of young Americans.
