‘Corrupt Bargains’: Team Biden Under Scrutiny For Sole-Source Illegal Immigration Services

Hidden video exposed transition team's sketchy deals for illegal immigration support

The average American may or may not know the name ‘Andrew Lorenzen-Strait’. But the Biden administration sure does.

As foreigners cued up en masse to flood the border after Joe was sworn in, Andrew was already wheeling and dealing to provide the array of support services those newcomers would need.

In the Project Veritas video, he claimed to have gotten those contracts in a ‘very Washington way’. A follow-up video asked questions about what was said in the original hidden video conversation.

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

Here is that follow-up video:

That video opens up a new line of inquiry into corruption within the Biden administration.

“The alarming allegations of Mr. Lorenzen-Strait’s corruption and his recently recorded statements only further justify the Homeland Security Committee’s continued oversight of ICE’s suspect contract procurement processes,” said House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Mark Green (R-TN) in a statement to the Washington Examiner. “Awarding massive, sole-source contracts for illegal immigrant services to ill-equipped non-profits such as Endeavors, possibly because of connections to President Biden’s 2020 transition team, could prove to be an unacceptable abuse of taxpayer funds, and ICE must answer for these allegations.”

Subcommittee on Border Security and Enforcement Chairman Clay Higgins (R-LA) and Subcommittee on Border Security, Facilitation, and Operations Chairman Dan Bishop (R-NC) joined Green to call on Immigration and Customs Enforcement to turn over years worth of documents and communications about an $87 million deal to house immigrants at the border in hotels instead of existing government-owned family residential centers.

Endeavors was already investigated and shown to have wrongfully lined their own pockets with $17 Million dollars.

Cherokee Federal is mentioned in the video as well, a contract that he acquired in a ‘very Washington Way’. That contract had conflict issues of its own.

It gets worse. He was creating ICE policy while working with Endeavors… and the timing of when he joined Endeavors is highly suspicious.

The inspector general also concluded that ICE had never put out a notice to contractors that it needed to rent space to house immigrant families. Endeavors sent ICE a proposal that stated it could house immigrants, an unusual offering given that ICE had not disclosed any need for housing.

Lorenzen-Strait’s prior work was a conflict of interest, the inspector general found, because he had crafted ICE policy as a transition team official while simultaneously advising Endeavors.

Lorenzen-Strait publicly signed on with Endeavors as a senior employee on Biden’s first day in office and shortly after locked down the $87 million backdoor deal and a $530 million noncompete contract to shelter unaccompanied immigrant children for the Department of Health and Human Services. — WashingtonExaminer

What was it they say about the company you keep? And what does that suggest about the entire Biden administraion?
