House Democrats are urging the Biden administration to allocate another $20 million in taxpayer money to provide social services to illegal aliens facing deportation from the United States.
Reps. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), Jerry Nadler (D-NY) and Nanette Diaz Barragan (D-CA) led dozens of fellow House Democrats in demanding that Biden expand the Case Management Pilot Program (CMPP). That program contracts with non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to provide various social and legal services to illegal migrants.
Last December, House and Senate Democrats voted to fund the CMPP as part of a $1.7 trillion year-end spending package to the sum of $20 million in taxpayer dollars. Most of this funding is designated to go to Church World Service, an NGO linked to the “Abolish ICE” movement.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) created the CMPP in 2021. It has already awarded millions of dollars to Church World Service for providing social services to illegal aliens awaiting deportation. The CMPP program is now set to receive another $20 million via Biden’s DHS through the 2021 year-end massive omnibus spending bill.
Republicans have blasted the CMPP program for serving as a slush fund for left-wing NGOs and spending taxpayer funds on supporting illegal aliens.
Sens. Roger Marshall (R-KS) and Bill Hagerty (R-TN) recently said the Biden administration is using the program to further leftist ideology instead of enhancing the critical mission of the Department of Homeland Security. They further alleged that Church World Service has worked to circumvent and subvert federal immigration laws for years.
The House Democrats claim investment in case management is crucial to reduce pressure on immigration detention services while ensuring that individuals who lack community ties and would benefit from additional assistance receive help to comply with immigration proceedings.
Biden’s DHS has been under pressure for months to disclose the extent to which left-wing NGOs are profiting off federal contracts to bus and fly border crossers and illegal aliens into unknown destinations in the nation’s interior.
