Alianza Americas, an open borders advocacy group funded by George Soros, received millions in grant funding from the Biden administration last year alone.
The organization raked in $7.5 million from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and another $1 million from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) in 2021.
Radical immigration advocacy group Alianza Americas got $8.5 MILLION from the Biden admin, which they appear to have ILLEGALLY used for political lobbying.

Both grants were awarded as part of COVID relief and vaccination programs, though now there are calls to see exactly what the grant funding was applied to.
Brian Harrison is the former chief of Health and Human Services (HHS), the administration organization that both the CDC and HRSA fall under. Now serving in the Texas House of Representatives, the Republican penned a letter to HHS Inspector General Christi Grimm Friday.
The state representative called for “an immediate and thorough audit” of Alianza Americas’ financial activities. This should be done, he urged, to determine whether the group ran afoul of federal law in using the grant funding.
Harrison charged that the group may have illegally used the federal funds for lobbying.
A separate letter, also sent on Friday, was written by Texas Republican Reps. Beth Van Duyne and Chip Roy. The pair made virtually the same request of Grimm.
Alianza gained new notoriety in September when it filed suit against Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis over the flights of illegal migrants sent to Martha’s Vineyard.
Federal records show the 501(c)(3) nonprofit took in approximately $1.4 million from billionaire George Soros’ Open Society Foundations network from 2016 through 2020.
The group has loudly called for “defunding” U.S. Customs and Border Protection and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Federal law prohibits grant money from Washington from being utilized “directly or indirectly” for a laundry list of activities deemed to be “lobbying.” In other words, it is not to influence leaders to take this or that position on a regulation or program.
Tax documents show that Alianza Americas held a pair of congressional briefings and more than 200 visits to Congress in the two years preceding its 2019 tax filing. It also claimed to have promoted a national organizing strategy to assist immigrants with temporary status.
