DHS WASTED MILLIONS HOUSING ILLEGAL ALIENS
IN HOTELS

The Department of Homeland Security Inspector General recently released the stunning report “ICE Spent Funds on Unused Beds, Missed COVID-19 Protocols and Detention Standards while Housing Migrant Families in Hotels"  that found that:

  • “ICE did not adequately justify the need for the sole source contract to house migrant families and spent approximately $17 million for hotel space and services at six hotels that went largely unused between April and June 2021.”

  • “ICE’s sole source contract with Endeavors resulted in millions of dollars being spent on unused hotel space.”

  • “In addition, Endeavors did not meet new healthcare protocols or ensure proper COVID-19 testing for families.”

  • “Further, Endeavors did not follow required ICE standards to ensure the proper care for housing migrant families while such families were residing in its facilities.”
