Two Democratic lawmakers on Thursday morning launched an investigation into a former top Trump administration official who is profiting off the White House\u0026#039;s policy of family separation and child detention.\u0022General Kelly\u0026#039;s role in promoting and helping execute these cruel immigration\u0026nbsp;policies remains a stain on his decades of public service.\u0022—Sen. Elizabeth Warrn and Rep. Pramila JayapalSen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) sent an open letter (pdf) to the head of Jim Van Dusen, the CEO of Caliburn International, which recently hired former Gen. John Kelly, who ran President Donald Trump\u0026#039;s Department of Homeland Security until January 2, 2019, and later became White House chief of staff.\u0026nbsp;Caliburn manages Comprehensive Health\u0026nbsp;Services, Inc. (CHSi). CHSi runs the Homestead Temporary Shelter for Unaccompanied\u0026nbsp;Children in Florida as well\u0026nbsp;as three facilities in Texas. All four CHSi-run shelters are used to house child victims of President Donald Trump\u0026#039;s zero tolerance policy on migration. According to Warren and Jayapal, the Florida facility could receive $340 million in federal funding in just six months.In their letter to Van Dusen, Warren and Jayapal delivered a blistering assessment of Kelly\u0026#039;s time in the administration and questioned his role in the company.\u0026nbsp;\u0022General Kelly\u0026#039;s role in promoting and helping execute these cruel immigration\u0026nbsp;policies remains a stain on his decades of public service,\u0022 the lawmakers wrote. \u0022It is outrageous that he now appears to\u0026nbsp;be cashing in on those same policies as a board member for the company that benefitted from\u0026nbsp;his actions as a government official.\u0022As\u0026nbsp;Common Dreams\u0026nbsp;reported\u0026nbsp;last month, Kelly joined Caliburn in early May, a move that was described at the time by Ned Price, a former advisor to President Barack Obama, as \u0022a new degree of cruelty and awfulness\u0022 in the revolving door between government and the private sector.Kelly, according to reporting in May from\u0026nbsp;CBS News, is specifically advising the company on child detention.\u0026nbsp;While Kelly\u0026#039;s new position is particularly galling, Warren and Jayapal took care to frame it as part of the bigger problem of the public-private intersect in Washington. In the letter, the two lawmakers touted their\u0026nbsp;Anti-Corruption and Public Integrity Act, a bill that would ban former DHS officials like Kelly from being paid by public contractors for four years after leaving office.\u0026nbsp;\u0022We intend to keep working to make that plan law so that actions like General Kelly\u0026#039;s rapid, cynical, and unethical shift from the government payroll to the contractor\u0026#039;s payroll are no longer allowed,\u0022 wrote Warren and Jayapal.
