Joe Biden’s CDC awarded millions to a Soros-funded nonprofit Alianza Americas in February of 2021 and that nonprofit is now suing Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, The Daily Caller reports.
The group, which says it is “focused on improving the quality of life of all people in the U.S.-Mexico-Central America migration corridor,” also received money from the Soros’ Open Society Foundations network.
Specifically, the Open Society foundation sent $1.4 million between 2016 and 2020, and the CDC awarded $7.5 million to the group in 2021.
The Caller further reports what the grant from the Biden administration was for:
The grant aims “to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and mitigate impacts among Latinx and Latin American immigrants,” according to the listing. It is being disbursed between Feb. 1, 2021 and Sept. 9, 2025, and is part of a program called “Protecting and Improving Health Globally: Building and Strengthening Public Health Impact, Systems, Capacity and Security.”
“The CDC grant is another example of Biden abusing tax dollars to promote illegal immigration and to enrich his liberal friends, under the guise of increasing ‘awareness’ of an emergency even Biden admitted is over,” Brian Harrison, who under former President Donald Trump was chief of staff for the Department of Health and Human Services, the agency that oversees the CDC,” told the DCNF.
Alianza has filed suit against DeSantis alleging that governor DeSantis “intentionally targeted only individuals who are non-white and born outside the United States.”
The group has other goals in mind as well, specifically advocating to defund Customs and Border Protection and Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
DeSantis has revealed that the transport of the migrants was done voluntarily and the DeSantis team stated, “The immigrants were homeless, hungry, and abandoned – and these activists didn’t care about them then. Florida’s program gave them a fresh start in a sanctuary state and these individuals opted to take advantage of chartered flights to Massachusetts.”
