The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), an independent government agency, is doling out $20,000 to give art therapy to “unaccompanied and migrant children” from Mexico and Central America.

The grant will focus on providing migrant youth who recently arrived in Washington, D.C., with “therapeutic art programming,” which will help them in “reimagining their stories and visualizing their futures.” Kids in Need of Defense (KIND), a group that works to prevent illegal immigrants from being deported, is the recipient of the NEA grant.

Migrant youth served by the program “will participate in a series of collaborative arts projects including a community mural, a theatrical and dance performance, and a virtual arts project,” according to a description of the grant. Funding for the program began in July and will continue until June 2024.

“As with all NEA grants, this grant decision was made on the basis of artistic excellence and artistic merit as described in the application review page of the NEA website and as required by Congress,” an NEA spokeswoman told the Daily Caller News Foundation.

KIND provides legal resources “unaccompanied children through their legal proceedings,” according to its website. The group called on the Department of Homeland Security to cease deportations during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.

The federal government has paid KIND millions since 2021 to aid in accommodating migrant youth and resettling refugees, according to a government spending database.

KIND’s relationship with the federal government extends beyond grants and contracts.

Claire Trickler-Mcnulty, a senior Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) official in the Biden administration, is an alumna of the organization.

KIND has also received significant backing from left-wing nonprofits, including the philanthropic arms of George Soros.

The Foundation to Promote Open Society, a nonprofit founded and funded by Soros, has given KIND more than $1.1 million since 2018, according to a grant database.

Soros’ nonprofits paid KIND to “counter family separation,” conduct immigration polling and “initiate a multi-year campaign to change the way governments and institutions respond to child migration.”

KIND did not immediately respond to the DCNF’s request for comment.

IMPORTANT NOTE TO WND READERS: America – long the freest, most prosperous, powerful, altruistic and Christian nation on earth – is on the brink of destruction. Every decent and aware American adult knows this. The evidence is everywhere.

Democrat politicians today overwhelmingly favor late-term abortion up to the very moment of birth – formerly known as "infanticide." They encourage children too young to drive or vote to have their breasts and/or sex organs amputated in pursuit of a "gender transition" that is both delusional and impossible, and which leads to staggering rates of depression and suicide. They have not just allowed, but ENGINEERED, a full-scale foreign invasion of America across her southern border.

Their standard bearer, President Joe Biden – a senile, pathologically dishonest and epically corrupt career political hack – is destroying America's economy, energy sector, military, law enforcement, election integrity, national security, Constitution and overall national wellbeing as rapidly as possible. At the same time, Team Biden demonizes and, increasingly, IMPRISONS critics as "violent extremists," "domestic terrorists," "white supremacists" and "insurrectionists." Indeed, they're currently engaged in an obviously corrupt multi-front legal war against Biden's chief political rival, Donald J. Trump, in an attempt to send the 45th president of the United States to prison for the rest of his life.

None of this constitutes "politics" in any conventional or traditional American sense. Rather, it is all darkly spiritual. The greatest nation on earth is in the throes of a full-blown spiritual war between good and evil.

The big question, then, is WHAT CAN BE DONE TO SAVE AMERICA? Fortunately, real answers and uncommon wisdom are showcased in the December issue of WND's critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, "CAN AMERICA BE SAVED? The world's freest, most Christian nation is on the brink of destruction."
