The Biden administration has awarded an $86 million contract for hotel rooms near the border to hold around 1,200 migrant family members who cross the U.S.-Mexico border, DHS officials confirmed to Axios.
Why it matters: It’s a sign of growing numbers of migrant families trying to come to the U.S. — in addition to already overwhelming numbers of kids crossing the border without their parents or legal guardians. Both trends appear to be straining government resources.
- The contract through Endeavors, a Texas-based nonprofit, is for six months but could be extended and expanded. The hotels will be near border areas, including in Arizona and Texas.
- ICE oversees the custody of migrant adults and families who cross the border illegally after they are apprehended by border patrol agents. The agency is already transforming its family detention facilities into rapid-processing centers with the goal of releasing families within 72 hours.
- Regardless, the contracts with hotels point to the agency not being able to keep up with the growing numbers of families in its custody.

Remember when the pandemic hit and food became a precious commodity:
We are now in the time that I wrote about in previous posts: “one day in the future, we will look back and wonder why we did not see what was happening”. Our freedom was being eroded by the federal government and its insatiable quest for power for a long period. The election of Donald Trump in 2016 showed what could be possible for the people. The Deep State (for lack of a better term) marginalized his administration and eventually used a biological attack to discredit him ending with a theft of the election to finish their coup. The fate of our doomed freedom was sealed on January 20th, 2021.
Since the theft of the 2020 Presidential election, their plan has been expedited and the collapse of the country into a Great Reset Communist empire is now here. Making America Great Again has become a derogatory term as our culture, education and economy have been exterminated.
Some of our military may be waking up. Half of the people are awake; the other half are woke. If you still believe in the Republic, you know that there is no 46th President. The government in exile in Florida only needs to be recognized by one state . We also need to recognize that multiple “elected” officials are illegitimate throughout the country. After the war is over, we must have fair elections. But I digress, that future is far off and the tree of Liberty will be well watered first.
