Former Nonprofit Leader Who Housed Migrant Kids Made $3.6 Million in One Year

Published

on

Former Southwest Key chief Juan Sanchez raked in $3.6 million in a single year while running the nonprofit’s operations housing migrant children who come over the southern border — a fraction of the more than one billion dollars that his former organization has pocketed in recent years.

Southwest Key notably turned a Walmart in Brownsville, Texas into a migrant holding center named “Casa Padre,” which sparked police and media interest when a teen boy went missing in June 2018.

Observers on all sides of the aisle are seriously scrutinizing the amount of money that migrant child housing aficionados make from American taxpayers, who are footing the bill to place migrants in foster care all over the country.

The former leader of a nonprofit organization that shelters migrant children for the U.S. government resigned this year after it was publicly disclosed that he earned nearly $1.5 million in 2016. New tax records obtained by The Washington Post indicate he earned more than double that — $3.6 million — in total compensation in 2017…

Southwest Key is one of the main contractors involved in housing unaccompanied migrant children as they wait to be placed with family members or sponsors, housing approximately 4,500 minors in Texas, California and Arizona. The organization cares for just more than one-third of the 12,500 minors in HHS custody. Southwest Key has an annual contract of approximately $460 million a year to shelter children, and federal records show the nonprofit has collected more than $1.1 billion since 2014…

In 2017, Sanchez received more than $1 million in cash payments — nearly $784,000 in base salary and $238,500 in bonus pay, according to records filed with the Internal Revenue Service and obtained by The Post. Sanchez’s largest source of income was $2.5 million paid in a cash-value life insurance and retirement policy.

Washington Post passage ends

The New York Times admitted that separated migrant children who came over the southern border were being sent to foster care in New York City under mayor Bill de Blasio.

“Under cover of darkness and in the custody of the federal government, migrant children have been coming in waves to New York, taken from their parents after crossing the southern border,” the New York Times reported in June 2018.

“Speaking outside Cayuga Centres in Harlem, one of a group of social service agencies in the state that contract with the federal government to take in unaccompanied minors, Bill de Blasio, the city’s mayor, said 350 children had come through the centre and 239 of them were currently in Cayuga’s care; the agency is not residential but places children in temporary foster care and runs day programs,” the Times reported.
