Republican Representative Andy Biggs is seeking answers from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) amid revelations of a DHS-funded program attacking conservative, Christian, and Republican citizens. The embattled DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas faces questions regarding the controversial Targeted Violence and Terrorism Prevention Grant Program (TVTP) and its use as a weapon against conservative Americans.
Rep. Biggs penned a letter to Mayorkas addressing his concerns on the findings of the Media Research Center (MRC) in their recent Freedom of Information Act investigations. The MRC discovered evidence of the DHS’s involvement in disseminating federal grants to organizations that condemn conservative beliefs as dangerous radicalization. One such organization is the University of Dayton’s PREVENTS-OH program, which Rep. Biggs highlighted as an example of extreme agenda-driven initiatives funded by DHS.
In contrast, the radical leftist groups such as Antifa and Black Lives Matter continue to partake in the University of Dayton’s seminars without scrutiny. Rep. Biggs stressed that the DHS should not award grants to combat domestic radicalization to organizations and municipalities unable to distinguish between speech and domestic terrorism. Biggs urged Mayorkas to address his concerns and requested responses to a list of questions regarding DHS’s involvement with such seminars and its commitment to protecting free speech by June 11.
It’s time for conservatives to defend their rights and demand accountability from the DHS. The agency must enforce the First Amendment, provide transparency on TVTP, and ensure
