A new watchdog report reveals that the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) received nearly $20 billion in taxpayer funds over the last two years to facilitate the resettlement of foreign nationals in the United States.

The budget ballooned from $8.93 billion in 2022 to $10.93 billion in 2023.

The ORR’s spending has increased while failing to account for unaccompanied children amid a surge of illegal aliens at the southern border.

The report also highlights a spike in funding for Refugee and Entrant Assistance Discretionary Grants, with concerns that the grantmaking incentivizes mass migration.

The current director of ORR, Robin Dunn Marcos, has ties to organizations that have historically received significant funding from ORR.

The ORR’s inability to reach up to 85,000 unaccompanied children placed with sponsors has raised concerns.

A spokesperson for the ORR wrote in a statement, “Consistent with the Ethics Pledge, Robin Dunn Marcos is recused from participating in particular matters involving specific parties in which IRC is or represents a party. That recusal obligation lasts for two years from her date of appointment, which was September 11, 2022.”

The surge in foreign nationals attempting to enter the U.S., including a record number of southern border encounters, has made border security and mass illegal immigration key issues.

Public opinion polls indicate dissatisfaction with President Biden’s handling of the border.
