Gabe Kaminsky of the Washington Examiner has a report today on a group called Alianza Americas that has received $8.5 million from two agencies under the Department of Health and Human Services, but engaged in extensive pro-immigration lobbying campaigns.
The high-profile Alianza also filed suit against Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to stop the transport of illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts. It has received at least $1.4 million in funding from George Soros-affiliated groups.
From the article:
The Washington Examiner also found Alianza claimed on its 2019 tax forms that it did not engage in any lobbying. This is a fact that another conservative ethics watchdog says may warrant his group filing a complaint with the IRS.
“It appears that Alianza incorrectly stated on their IRS Form 990 that they do not engage in any lobbying when it appears that they do by getting their supporters to contact Congress to introduce or influence legislation regarding the status of illegal immigrants,” Paul Kamenar, counsel to the National Legal and Policy Center, told the Washington Examiner. “They are also required to file a separate form with the IRS detailing how much they spend on such lobbying activities.”
