‘Nonprofit’ w/ Ties to Biden Gets $530M No-Bid Contract to Care For Migrants

'It seems pretty profitable for a nonprofit...'

The Biden administration awarded an organization with ties to President Joe Biden a $530 million no-bid federal contract to care for unaccompanied minor children at the southern border, according to Washington Examiner.

This is the second massive federal contract the Department of Health and Human Services has given Family Endeavors, a Texas-based nonprofit whose senior director for migrant services and federal affairs helped Biden vet and select his HHS appointees.

Andrew Lorenzen–Strait, a former Immigration and Customs Enforcement official, served on Biden’s transition team and now works for Family Endeavors as a senior official.

Rep. Andrew Clyde, R-Ga., speculated that Lorenzen–Strait is the reason Family Endeavors scored such a lucrative contract, as did two other sources.

“It seems pretty profitable for a nonprofit,” said one person who was familiar with the situation.

The Biden administration previously gave Family Endeavors an $87 million no-bid contract in March to house migrant families in hotels, Axios reported.

According to the contract, the federal government has agreed to pay $352.64 per hotel bed for roughly 80,000 migrants who were apprehended by border officials.

The hotels chosen by Family Endeavors include Hilton Hotels, Choice Hotels, InterContinental Hotels Group and Best Western International.

But this second contract is 12 times greater than the organization’s total revenue in 2018, according to tax documents, which calls into question whether Family Endeavors is capable of taking on such a massive project, the Washington Examiner noted.

The organization also has no history of working with ICE or any other border agency, and its largest federal contract was for only $1.4 million.
