(The Center Square) – Republicans on the U.S. Oversight Committee have begun an inquiry into why multiple allies of President Joe Biden have received federal contracts that are now under scrutiny.

The lawmakers sent a letter to Tae Johnson, acting director of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, demanding documentation and written communication around an $87 million contract that was awarded to house illegal immigrants.

An Inspector General report later said that the contractor wasted $17 million because hotel rooms went unused.


“We write to express alarm at the potential waste of millions in taxpayer money and abuse of the contracting process by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials,” the letter, sent this week, said. “According to a recent Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Inspector General (OIG) report, ICE officials bypassed the ordinary competitive process to award a large, sole source $87 million contract and then wasted at least $17 million of taxpayer money because hotel rooms intended for migrant families sat empty and were mostly unused.:snip:
