WASHINGTON – Last week, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), ranking member of the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, sent a letter to Alejandro Mayorkas, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), demanding answers about reports that DHS is using taxpayer dollars to reimburse nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) that transport illegal aliens across the country. The letter also requested information on a recently reported DHS plan to pay for busses and flights for illegal aliens directly. Along with the letter, the senator made public a list of NGOs Immigration and Customs Enforcement works with to transport aliens at the southern border.

The senator wrote, “It appears that a recently leaked DHS plan doubles down on this administration’s efforts to charge taxpayers for illegal aliens’ travel.”  He added, “Taxpayer dollars should be used to secure our border not further exacerbate the Biden border crisis.”
