While the immigration crisis at the U.S. border continues to escalate, the Biden Administration is under fire for giving $41 million to a George Soros-linked NGO whose main function is to help illegal immigrants avoid deportation.
The newly created Acacia Center for Justice is a partnership between the Vera Institute of Justice, funded by the Hungarian tycoon, and Capital Area Immigrants' Rights (CAIR). This does not imply the merger of both NGOs, as both Vera and CAIR will maintain their own activities independently. Its objectives are in line with those of the parent entities, as can be seen on the group's website:
The goal of the Acacia Center for Justice is to expand on Vera's work over the past twenty years in providing legal support and representation to immigrants facing deportation through the development, coordination and management of national networks of legal service providers serving immigrants across the country.
Contracts for legal services to migrants
Fox News reported that the Biden Administration reportedly awarded six contracts to Acacia. The Biden Administration awarded six contracts to Acacia for the amount indicated for its "legal services" to illegal immigrants arriving in the country without means.
Interestingly, the Administration had already given 171 million to the Vera Institute for similar reasons, specifically, to help unaccompanied minors avoid deportation. These figures could multiply to 983 million in the event that the contract, which is valid until 2023, is extended to 2027. This organization seeks to end "mass incarceration" by promoting the reduction of jails, prisons and detention centers in the United States. It is also in favor of reducing or eliminating police funding.
