BOOM! Congress Subpoenas Key Biden Records

Must Read

Republican House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) has recently issued a subpoena against the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) under Democrat President Joe Biden. The subpoena, issued on Tuesday, specifically requests the case files of several criminal illegal aliens who entered the United States as children and later faced charges for violent crimes, such as murder.

For quite some time now, Jordan has been persistently seeking the case files of these violent illegal immigrants. He emphasizes that these individuals have been charged with various crimes, including theft, assault, and murder.

Despite the gravity of the situation, Jordan expresses his disappointment with the response received from HHS, deeming it “woefully inadequate.”

Jordan revealed that Biden’s HHS cited privacy concerns of those charged and “asserted that the Committee lacked a legitimate oversight purpose to obtain the case files.”

The debate regarding the files persisted into November, until HHS proposed that committee members could examine documents on camera under the condition that no photographs or recordings were taken, and a three-day notice was given before any information was disclosed.

This proposal was met with opposition from the committee. Members of the committee asserted that the files were neither classified nor restricted.

“HHS’s attempt to unilaterally limit or in any way dictate how a Congressional committee lawfully uses materials to inform potential legislative reforms constitutes unacceptable interference with the workings of a coordinate branch of government and cannot be considered a good faith accommodation,” Jordan said.

The committee decided to review the documents on camera and permitted HHS to suggest redactions during and after the review, despite his initial concerns. Subsequently, upon reviewing the documents, committee officials discovered extensive redactions made by HHS, which he described as “pervasive.” These redactions not only included personal information but also entire narrative sections detailing the immigrants’ travel routes and “serious incident reports” during their time in custody.

“Across multiple case files, HHS redacted information about whether specific UACs had ‘identifying scars, marks, or tattoos’—information that can be indicative of gang affiliation,” Jordan said.

“Worse, HHS went so far as to redact information explicitly requested by the Committee, including information shared with HHS by other agencies and immigration case history information.”

“By unilaterally redacting the case files, HHS rendered the requested materials provided for in-camera review all but useless, frustrating and impeding the Committee’s constitutional oversight obligations,” he said.

Consequently, Jordan has issued a subpoena for the documents, asserting that the committee possesses extensive authority to carry out oversight and utilize such information to shape legislation regarding matters like the placement of UACs and the handling of criminal illegal immigrants. This marks the most recent endeavor by the committee to acquire additional details concerning criminal illegal immigrants. In the month of December, Jordan summoned Department Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to produce the case files of 14 illegal immigrants.

Those illegals were “charged with serious crimes, such as theft, brutal assault, murder, and terrorism-related charges.”
