Brief Executive Summary
From the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, the Subcommittee on Federal Spending Oversight and Emergency Management led by Senator Rand Paul issued a weekly waste report over its tournament concerning government spending waste. The report focused on its 'winner' which was a plan implemented to help deported people in El Salvador start business ventures. The report found that approximately $50,000 was spent on this program, and keyed in on the fact that the program did not explicitly rule out helping deportees convicted of U.S. crimes.
