A recent surge in migration isn’t the only crisis President Joe Biden is having to contend with on the southern border.
According to the Washington Examiner, the cost of housing tens of thousands of incoming migrant children has now eclipsed $3 billion under the Biden administration — and a hefty portion of that money went to private companies and nonprofits that won contracts without going through the typical bidding process.
It’s all starting to amount to a budding scandal for the administration, particularly as some of those contractors have close ties to Biden and the White House.
Scandals on scandals
According to an Associated Press report cited by the Examiner, more than $2 billion of the money spent on the border under Biden so far has gone to just three firms that were contracted by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to help with providing temporary housing for unaccompanied minors who cross into the U.S.
The first is a private, New York-based company known as Deployed Resources LLC, which was awarded a contract worth $719 million to construct and operate a 1,500-bed tent facility in Donna, Texas. The Alabama-based Rapid Deployment Inc. meanwhile received two contracts totaling $614 million to oversee a housing facility for migrant children at Fort Bliss near El Paso.
The facility is said to be the largest of its kind and is expected to be expanded to as many as 10,000 beds.
Finally, a Texas-based nonprofit known as Family Endeavors Inc. received two no-bid contracts totaling $667 million — $580 million to manage an emergency intake facility in Pecos, Texas, and $87 million to provide hotel rooms and additional services to migrant families.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
