Biden Admin Spending $352 Apiece Daily on Hotel Beds for 80K Migrant Families: Report

The federal government is reportedly spending $352.64 per hotel bed per day for some 80,000 migrant families expected to cross the southern border between now and September.

The 1,239 beds at seven hotels in Arizona and Texas have been rented for 199 days, costing the U.S. a total of approximately $87 million — or the amount the Biden administration awarded to a nonprofit group on behalf of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in a no-bid contract to house the immigrants, The Washington Examiner reported Monday, citing a federal document.

The nonprofit, San Antonio-based Family Endeavors, had no history as an ICE contractor and has ties to the Biden administration, The Examiner reported.

The price tag is comparable to claims made last month by Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.), who rapped the administration for the contract she said would cost taxpayers $395 for every night it held a family in a hotel.

“So, Biden is spending $86,000,000 to purchase hotel rooms for 1,200 illegal alien families for six months,” Boebert tweeted. “By that math, he’s spending around $395 a night per room. How many of you have stayed in a $395/night hotel room?”

In El Paso, Texas, where two of the hotels are located, similar two-and-a-half-star and three-star hotels in the same locations are currently available at nightly rates of $91 to $179, The Examiner reported.
