Despite findings of fraud, Carolyn Ham still getting paid while on leave

Given the seriousness of the allegations, especially the concerns expressed by federal investigators that welfare funds are supporting terror abroad, and the finding by the OLA that DHS did not have basic internal controls in place and ignored the warnings of its own investigators, the Center has called for the Trump administration to suspend funding for CCAP until Minnesota can demonstrate competence in administering the program. ...

Legal Loophole in CCAP allows child care centers to bill for services they do not provide

Perhaps by coming together on the CCAP fraud issue, lawmakers can begin to plan for a complete overhaul of Minnesota’s generous and infamous welfare system. What other programs are being ripped off? Welfare fraud is nothing new in Minnesota and began long before Somali refugees started arriving in the 1990’s. Any major overhaul will require the support of Governor Walz to be successful.

Given Minnesota’s leadership in the metro and the governor’s mansion, if you are cheering on the idea of punishing sanctuary cities, be careful what you wish for.

Memo to Congress: Be the Wall, Stop the Invading “Caravan”

These are mostly young, strong and able men. They are not carrying the American Flag yearning to become productive members of our country. They are carrying the flags of Honduras and Guatemala, mocking our country and the pathetic state of the Rule of Law in American today. Are we going to defend ourselves? Yes, troops are going to the border. ...
