A left-wing organization backed by billionaire George Soros has won a $169 million federal contract from the Biden administration to assist young border crossers to avoid being deported, according to a report published this week.
Adam Shaw and Joe Schoffstall of Fox News reported recently that the Vera Institute of Justice, which has money ties to Soros, has secured a $171.7 million federal funding contract to provide lawyers for Unaccompanied Alien Children (UACs) to stay in the United States.
Fox News reported that the federal contract could wind up showering the Vera Institute of Justice with $1 billion in public money.
“The contract lasts until March of next year, but if renewed until March of 2027, it will be worth up to $983 million. Vera has won the largest federal contract for services related to mass immigration for any year since the mid-2000s.”
“The Vera Institute, on the other hand, is fueled by taxpayer-funded government grants and contracts, such as the one it received in March. Between July 1, 2020, and June 30, 2021, $152 million of the group’s $191 million in income came from government sources,” according to an audit of its most recently filed financial statements.
“The organization aims to eliminate “mass incarceration” in the United States by reducing the number of jails, prisons, and detention centers. The organization has also shown support for police defunding.”
The Vera Institute of Justice received $310 million from the Obama administration to assist unaccompanied alien children in avoiding deportation, according to a 2018 press release.
Taxpayers also fund the organization through sanctuary cities.
Vera Institute of Justice collaborated with the city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 2019 to develop a program aimed at assisting illegal aliens in avoiding deportation by providing them with free legal services.
