Report Reveals NGOs Raking In Billions From Biden’s Border Crisis

A recent investigative report by The Free Press has exposed how several nonprofit organizations are profiting massively from the ongoing border crisis under the Biden administration.

The combined revenue of the top three NGOs — Global Refuge, Southwest Key Programs and Endeavors Inc. — has skyrocketed from $597 million in 2019 to a staggering $2 billion by 2022, according to federal disclosure documents.

These organizations that run shelters in Texas, Arizona and California are federally funded by the Unaccompanied Children Program to resettle migrant minors who enter the US alone. But the report reveals that they are spending taxpayer funds on questionable activities such as “pet therapy,” “horticulture therapy” and music therapy for migrant children.

In 2021, Endeavors paid music therapist Christy Merrell $533,000 and conducted 1,656 “people-plant interactions” and 287 pet therapy sessions between April 2021 and March 2023. Meanwhile, the CEOs of these nonprofits are raking in salaries of over $500,000 per year, with one, Southwest Key, paying out their chief executive more than $1 million.

The budget of the Office of Refugee Resettlement that funds these NGOs has exploded from $1.8 billion in 2018 to $6.3 billion in 2023,

Critics argue that there is a lack of accountability for performance and interest in solving the border crisis under the Biden administration while these NGOs continue to profit.
