GOP wants answers after nonprofit with ties to Biden receives $600M worth of federal contracts: Report

The United States is experiencing a massive wave of migration at its southern border. But while most would regard the situation as a crisis, it seems to be turning into a financial opportunity for others.

Among those reaping the benefits is Family Endeavors, a social services organization that was said to have received over $600,000,000 worth of no-bid federal contracts to help manage the immigration surge after it hired an individual with ties to the Biden administration, the Washington Examiner reports. Now, Republicans are demanding answers. 

Johnson digs deep

As the Examiner reported, Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson (R) sent letters Wednesday to Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Xavier Becerra and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Acting Director Tae D. Johnson demanding details about their relationship with Family Endeavors.

“I write today regarding the Biden administration’s decision to award a contract worth as much as $529.5 million to the nonprofit, Family Endeavors,” Johnson said in his letter to Becerra.

“Health and Human Services (HHS) awarded the no-bid contract to the Texas nonprofit, Family Endeavors, after the group ‘hired a Biden transition official,'” Johnson added.

“This no-bid contract is reportedly ‘the second largest ever awarded by [HHS] overseeing the migrant child program,’” he pointed out.

The Republican lawmaker then asked for copies of “[a]ll emails regarding HHS’s review of and decision on this contract,” along with “any communications between and among HHS employees and employees or representatives of Family Endeavors.”

What’s more, Johnson sought an explanation for why Becerra’s department “did not compete the contract that it ultimately awarded to Family Endeavors.”

“Unusual and compelling urgency”

The senator’s letter to ICE’s acting director requested information about that agency’s $87 million contract with Family Endeavors. In particular, Johnson wanted details concerning the “unusual and compelling urgency” that was cited as an excuse for skipping the normal contract bid process.

Johnson serves as the ranking member of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs’ Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations. He gave the Biden administration officials until April 28 to respond to his letter.

According to the Washington Examiner, Family Endeavors has on its payroll Andrew Lorenzen-Strait, who previously worked on Biden’s transition team.

Lorenzen-Strait was also once a high-ranking ICE official who worked for the agency from 2008 until 2019, and at one point oversaw detention facilities. At the time of his departure, current ICE Acting Director Tae D. Johnson was his immediate superior, the Examiner noted.

  1. Let’s get real people. Biden, or for that matter any other Democrat, will NEVER be held accountable for any transgression, crime or traitorous enterprise. The reasons are many, but disgustingly one of the foremost is (with the exception of a very few) Republicans who are completely gutless. Soon, it will be realized by most people that there is only one solution left. Think about it.

    1. Unfortunately I have to agree with you. We the people have lost control of our own country and the Republican Party is either corrupted just as bad or spineless. Hold on people. It’s gonna be a rough ride

    2. I am thinking about it along w 750 million others who voted against that pos in the WH! And we all know the answer.

      1. Well we haven’t hit 750 Million voters yet, but maybe in another month or so with Comrade Chairman Biden’s border protocol we’ll get there.

  3. If they cant get the Clintons then they will not get Biden. Its like Mafia — they pay off the CIA, the FBI , Judges, Lawyers , jury members , and the ones who are just looking to get paid for telling lies.

    1. This only cements the Republicans taking over the HOuse and Senate. Both Harris and Biden will be impeached as Pelosi blows away in the wind.

  4. The corrupt FBI needs to be gutted. If you’re a republican and lie to these clowns, you go to jail….un freaking believable

    1. You are 100% correct, easy on the clowns, I am one lol, have been a professional clown for 40 years.

  5. The “swamp” is very real, and a danger to this country! Trump wanted to drain the swamp, but I don’t think that it can ever be accomplished, because the swamp is so powerful and corrupt! How do you think that the election got rigged for Biden?! The Bidens are clearly part of the swamp, and they, like the Clintons, and all of the other crooked Democrats, will probably never be brought to justice for their crimes! It is a very sad and scary situation!

  6. The corruption and the bidens are so deep it is disgusting. They should be impeached now and it would be a real impeachment not a sham like before. Time for the gop and real Americans to take charge of this illegal bunch in dc.

  7. SNIFF & BLOW GOTTA GO! TIME TO DITCH BIDEN AND HARRIS!

    WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

    Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?

    I urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND a COMPLETE AUDIT AND INVESTIGATION into the 2020 ELECTIONS and for the IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

    BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! And they both (BIDEN & HARRIS) have family members putting them both in a CONFLICT of interest position advertising and promoting their businesses and using their VP and POTUS both as an advertising self-interest, self-promoting position and it is ILLEGAL!

    Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!

  8. Agree with all posts! The slime runs deep in d.c. this is just the tip of the iceberg! Trillions of dollars going into the pockets of the corrupt people, which all are demonrats! No one will be brought to justice because those who are supposed to ferret out corruption and bring charges aka( f.b.i., d.o.j., c.ia. ) are all on the take! They will do nothing!!!

  9. Right on Marie. I just called my State Senator and left him a voice message. “Now is the time to impeach Biden and Harris.” There’s no hope for America if we let this lunatic criminal, traitorial, commie leftist fringe continue with this charade. Mike Lindell has all the. “Stolen Election” evidence for our day in court. It is time to rise up against the tyrants and put them out!

  10. This is what happens in the “SWAMP”. You scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours and I won’t rat you out because you know to much about me. THIS is what goes on in the “SWAMP”. They’re all a bunch of criminals and crooks with the exception of a very few.
    How do people who make $170.000 per year become Millionaires in 3 or 4 years ???????? Lot’s of backdoor, under the table stuff going on.

  11. One problem living in a blue state with blue senators it is like speaking to the swamp because I have continually written to them on all that is going on now and they writing back with misunderstanding of what is happening and not addressing the problem is their norm but keep pinging them. I also write to the Minority Senate leader as well. Obama use to do the same and got by with it. On Obamacare they hired Michelle’s friends business to do the software and it failed and they had to go out and hire someone else. Then when he was pushing solar system with a friend in California and they failed and the administration went overboard giving the owner a lot of money to help him through their loss. Low and behold if Trump had done something like that – Congress and media would be on it daily!!
