(FOX NEWS) – Immigration and Customs Enforcement is securing hotel rooms to handle the growing influx of illegal families crossing into the United States.
The Biden administration has awarded ICE an $86.9 million contract for hotel rooms near the border to provide temporary shelter and processing services for families who have not been expelled from the United States but have been placed in immigration proceedings for their removal.
The contract, through Texas-based nonprofit Endeavors, provides 1,239 beds and “other necessary services.” The families will receive a comprehensive health assessment, including COVID-19 testing.
The announcement comes days after White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters on Thursday that the White House plan to provide 2.5 million doses of AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine to Mexico.
