Jim Jordan makes a demand that has Biden horrified

There have been many investigations into Joe Biden recently. But this new discovery and demand is insane.

And Jim Jordan has made a demand that has Biden horrified.

The House Judiciary Committee, led by Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH), has taken a significant step in escalating its scrutiny of the Biden administration’s handling of unaccompanied alien children (UACs).

On Tuesday, the committee issued a subpoena to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), demanding access to case files of UACs charged with violent crimes.

This action comes after months of what Republicans characterize as an insufficient response to requests for information.

The decision to issue a subpoena reflects Republican concerns about the potential link between UACs and violent crime.

Chairman Jordan’s letter accompanying the subpoena accuses HHS of “mismanagement of placement of unaccompanied alien children” and “woefully inadequate” responses to prior information requests.

He claims that since June 2023, the committee has requested case files for UACs charged with serious crimes, including theft, assault, and murder.

However, according to the letter, HHS responded with “baseless excuses to justify withholding the requested criminal alien files” and provided heavily redacted documents that Jordan argues violate the separation of powers and hinder the committee’s ability to conduct oversight.

Beyond the immediate accusations of inadequate information sharing, the subpoena also highlights concerns about the process of vetting sponsors for UACs.

The letter cites a recent report from the Office of Inspector General that found “substantial gaps in sponsor screening and follow-up,” raising “safety concerns for unaccompanied children.”

This echoes past criticisms of the Flores settlement, which limits the detention of minors to 20 days, forcing their release to sponsors while HHS conducts background checks.

Chairman Jordan emphasizes the committee’s goal of informing potential legislative reforms through its investigation.

He specifically mentions reforming the placement process to ensure secure detention for UACs with criminal charges and enhancing the level of scrutiny applied to both UACs and potential sponsors.

To support this goal, Jordan cites the Supreme Court’s recognition of Congress’s “broad and indispensable” power of oversight.

The HHS has yet to publicly respond to the subpoena.

However, this action follows the House’s recent impeachment of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, which now awaits consideration by the Senate.

Both actions reflect Republican concerns about the Biden administration’s border security policies and the handling of unaccompanied minors.

We must hold our elected officials accountable, and we cannot allow them to continue in their corruption.
