Biden Gives $530M Of Border Crisis Money To His Cronies

Democrat Joe Biden rewarded a nonprofit group with a massive amount of taxpayer dollars for border work, one who hired a friend of his on his first day in office.  The friend has experience protecting “migrant’s rights”, and was hired to work on a border crisis that has been completely invented by the Democrats.

“The contract is by far the largest ever awarded to Family Endeavors. It’s potentially worth more than 12 times the group’s most recently reported annual budget — a sign of the demand the new work will place on its operations,” Axios reported. “The no-bid contract also is the second largest ever awarded by the agency overseeing the migrant child program.”

What is most curious about this story is the organization got the contract after it hired Andrew Lorenzen-Strait, who advised the Biden transition team on Department of Homeland Security policy and staffing matters, to be its senior director for migrant services and federal affairs.

THE ACTIVIST FRIEND

Strait, who has experience working with transgendered prisoners, and who, according to his company Bio: “is a member of the U.S. Supreme Court Bar, and in 2007 was recognized by the Governor of Maryland as the state’s Pro Bono Attorney of the Year for his legal aid activities in Prince George’s County, MD. He lives near Annapolis, MD, with his husband, two daughters, and son.”

THE NON-PROFIT

The non profit group who got the massive federal money, according to their site:

Established in 1977, Endeavors’ Housing Program provides permanent supportive housing to female Veterans, as well as individuals and families with mental illness and/or disabilities.

So now they will be working with illegal migrants to get them placed in the United States.

According to a press release from the organization dated, Jan 20, 2021, Strait was hired on Biden’s first day in office:

SAN ANTONIO, Jan. 20, 2021–Endeavors is pleased to announce the official appointment of Andrew Lorenzen-Strait as the Senior Director for Migrant Services & Federal Affairs at Endeavors. He will assume responsibilities for the position beginning January 25, 2021.

Andrew will lead a nation-wide team of dedicated professionals providing critical social services to migrants, including unaccompanied children, single adults and families. Mr. Lorenzen-Strait will also lead Endeavors’ government affairs effort in the national capital region, advancing our mission and core values through Federal government program development and procurement opportunities in the nation’s capital.

“We are fortunate to gain a leader with Andrew’s expertise and vision,” said Jon Allman, Endeavors President and CEO. “As we continue to grow as an organization, we are confident Andrew will support us in building better partnerships, transforming the communities we serve, and ensure our new programs and services are a first-class experience for the people using them.”

VIDEO OF THE DAY

Mr. Lorenzen-Strait has over 15 years of experience and is a recognized expert in migrant protection and advocacy. Before Endeavors, Mr. Lorenzen-Strait served as the Director of Children and Family Services at Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS). At LIRS, he oversaw a national network of faith-based and nonprofit partners that provide foster care and case management services to unaccompanied immigrant children. Before his work in civil society, Lorenzen-Strait started his Federal service as a Presidential Management Fellow for the U.S. Department of Justice and later served as the country’s first national migrant Public Advocate within the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

THE RELIGIOUS BACKGROUND- TURNING CHURCH INTO ACTIVISTS

In February Strait made an appearance with the National Lutheran Children Services, who reported on his concerns for migrants social needs:

On Friday, our Executive Director of Migrant Care and Support Services, Andrew Lorenzen-Strait, represented LSSNCA at the “In Children’s Best Interests” symposium. Andrew spoke at the American University Washington College of Law about the need for government stakeholders, civil society, and faith-based organizations to respond to migrating people’s social service needs, including providing trauma-informed individual and family therapy, trafficking education and prevention services, legal counsel, housing, and other needed social supports.
“Reducing immigration detention and enforcement budgets and refocusing those dollars to respond to humanitarian needs of migrants would better serve our American values of due process and fairness,” said Andrew. In order to “right-size” our immigration system, the billions of federal dollars spent on locking up asylum seekers should be reinvested into strengthening civil society in Central America and meeting the social support needs of immigrants arriving at our borders.

This is what Biden/Harris voters said they wanted. Most knew full well how corrupt Biden was, God knows he was in politics enough years that it was glaring obvious. If if they were one of the millions of ignorant, non-informed voters who only saw a D and a welfare check after his name, they still voted for him ! People who elect corrupt politicians are not victims, they are ACCOMPLICES !

I agree fully Rocky.

It is easy for sleepy joe to spend OUR tax dollars.

HOW THE HELL CAN BIDEN LEGALLY GET AWAY WITH GIVING MONEY CONGRESS DESIGNATED FOR BUILDING THE WALL FOR THIS PURPOSE? HE AND STRAIT SHOULD BE TAKEN TO COURT FOR MISUSE OF THOSE FUNDS IMMEDIATELY. AND AS I HAVE SAID HERE DAYS AGO, DON’T HOLD YOUR BREATH FOR BIDEN CHANGING HIS MIND, ADMITTING HE WAS WRONG, AND SAYING HE WILL CONTINUE TO BUILD THE WALL, CAUSE HE WILL COME UP WITH ONE THING AFTER ANOTHER TO DELAY THAT HAPPENING… AND WHAT WOULD YOU CALL WHAT HAS JUST HAPPENED IF IT ISN’T A DELAY?

alicia regina cervera

WOW!THE ACTIVIST FRIEND

Strait, who has experience working with transgendered prisoners, and who, according to his company Bio: “is a member of the U.S. Supreme Court Bar, and in 2007 was recognized by the Governor of Maryland as the state’s Pro Bono Attorney of the Year for his legal aid activities in Prince George’s County, MD.

Throw this idiot Brain dead moron in the click–or the Potomac–He is worthless just as he was for 47 years in Congress-did nothing joe

miss maggie

Obama did the same thing when he took office and handed out millions to all his buddies who helped elect him.

alicia regina cervera

He should have been thrown in the Poromac as well, but being the first black pres. people considered him a god.

NO Republican led State should EVER accept any illegal aliens from ANY source! Doing so will destroy their credibility AND their State.
Not to mention the enormous costs, the destruction of their educational system (already questionable), the loss of low level jobs and the resultant increase in crimes due to people losing their incomes to illegals taking them.
And THAT is just the immediate effect.

Biden needs to stop spending tax payers money. He doesn’t need to pack the supreme court. He and the democrats need to pack their bags and get the hell out of Washington.

Mark Gravitte

The great American Eagle has fallen. We are on our own folks! Christ will look after his flock! Trust in that.

Survivor 55

What a friggin idiot! I am so sick of this selfish, thieving, sorry, lying piece of poop, Joe Biden. Doesn’t this make you wonder how much of this will go into his and his family’s pockets?
Every day, it’s another $5 trillion being wasted. The Democrats act like there’s a MONEY TREE growing in the WH garden, just for them.
On top of all that, the nation is paying for a VP, to do her job and half the time Kamala is AWOL. She still hasn’t been to the border to assess the crisis. SORRY!!! Both of them need to be impeached and get rid of Nancy Pelosi!!
They are using our tax dollars to destroy our country, America!!

Jesse

Pedo Joe won’t do as good as Obozo since he did not give his pals Billions as Obozo the TRAITOR did.

Mark Gravitte

You know, it’s strange now that the DemonRATS are in power, you hear nothing of the kids in cages at the border. With Trump the DemonRATS brought up the subject every other day. This whole charade needs to end and the rightful winner placed in the White House. That being President Trump. I weep for the future.

This is only the beginning…
