Immigration  Issues


Although lately there is some concern about Islamic terrorists entering the U.S. just by walking across the undefended border, this country's primary immigration problem involves Spanish-speaking people immigrating — often illegally — and failing to assimilate into the American mainstream.  Of course, assimilation is much easier for those who learn to speak English.  No reasonable English-speaking person would consider visiting or living in — or sneaking into — Mexico or Central America for more than a few hours without knowing how to speak at least a little Spanish.  The same is true of any other country.  You wouldn't last long in Germany without speaking German.

In my opinion, assimilation is impeded by Spanish-language broadcasting as much as anything else.  If all US radio and TV stations broadcast in English only, immigrants from other countries would be much less comfortable — they would feel like foreigners — and they would have a powerful incentive to learn our language or go home.  That might sound heartless and mean, in the short term, but in the long run we would all be better off.

Consider the story of the Tower of Babel in the 11th chapter of Genesis.  God himself inflicted multi-lingual confusion as punishment in order to keep people from getting any work done.  And it worked.

Of course, if I were living in poverty south of the border, I'd try to move to the U.S. myself.  The United States is such an attractive place that people are abandoning their homelands to sneak into this country any way they can.  But once they do, in my opinion, they should at least learn the language, demonstrate that they will be peaceful and productive members of society, and try to blend in with everybody else.  Otherwise, the great "melting pot" doesn't melt anything.  If there are people who want to come to this country so badly that they'll accept difficult jobs that nobody else wants, that's great, but for everyone's benefit, we should all be able to communicate with one another.

The point of this page is that unrestricted immigration opens the door to terrorists, violent criminals, and people who are only coming here to absorb benefits from the American taxpayer.  Various subtopics are covered on pages of their own, listed below.

President Bush sometimes says that illegal immigrants find work because they'll do "the jobs Americans don't want."  This makes a great sound bite for the evening news, but it is not entirely true.  Hispanic immigrants from dirt-poor countries south of the border are willing to do difficult, dirty, hot, degrading, and/or dangerous work for the minimum wage, or less, and send a substantial portion of their earnings back to their home country.  But employers can't find U.S. citizens to do the work for (at least) two major reasons:  One is a minimum wage that is too high, and the other is the multi-billion dollar welfare state.

Government Accountability and Law Under the Left.  Democrats may allow as many as 20 million people to enter the country (this is now an invasion) if Biden clinches a second term and nothing changes — despite having numerous laws on the books to recognize a national border.  Three facts must be soberly considered:
  1.  Due to dissolved borders and subsequent backlogs, "asylum" applicants will not receive an asylum claim determination for 1,621 days (four years).  That wait time is climbing, and some "asylum" seekers have been given Notice to Appear letters as far out as ten years!
  2.  According to the Department of Justice[,] "49% of all non-detained or removal cases completed in FY 2020 resulted in an in-absentia order of removal due to an alien's failure to attend a scheduled immigration court hearing."  Add to that number the "gotaways" and you realize that there are tens of millions of illegal immigrants living a permanent, unlawful existence here.
  3.  According to USCIS data, only 31% of affirmative asylum petitions adjudicated in FY 2019 were approved.  Will we expel the other 69%, still entering by the millions?  What about those who have been here for years, some with American-born children? [...]
Considering that 69% of hearings result in denial of the foreigner's asylum request and nearly half fail to show up for their hearings in the first place, many illegally entering the country must eventually be deported.  But, if the system continues to incentivize illegal crossings, there can be no accountability for the invasion openly pushed by the Biden administration. [...] Never is the question asked, "what rights do native-born Americans possess?"  It seems to be that anyone who sneaks across the border has superior rights and extra protections; this must change.

Media midterm games at border.  More than 4 million people have entered the United States from Mexico under Biden, a record influx that is larger than the population of every American city except New York.  Nearly a million of those crossers evaded detection, while most others were briefly detained but turned loose because they claimed asylum.  After border agents free them, usually with a court date years into the future, the government provides no services.  The migrants are on their own, with no right to work, making them dependent on charities and their new neighbors in Texas, Arizona and elsewhere.  It's an unbearable weight for border states, with some towns seeing their population grow by hundreds of people every day.  El Paso, Texas, says it gets about 1,400 newcomers each week.  Governors, mayors and residents in those states are beyond frustrated at Washington for causing the problem, then sticking them with the burden and the bills.

New York City's Self-Made Migrant Crisis.  An immigrant is somebody with job skills who is willing to learn English if he or she doesn't already know it, and wants to Americanize by adopting our national values and culture. [...] A migrant is somebody who just walks across the border the same way a burglar walks into your house, and acts as if he owns the place.  Here is a video of adult migrants in Hungary throwing away food that is given to them by the police, although the children do appear grateful for the aid.  Citizens and legal immigrants in Texas feel unsafe in their own neighborhoods because of swarms of illegal migrants.  The bottom line is that these migrants would not come if they did not expect to be given more than emergency food, shelter, and medical care.  We don't let people starve or freeze on our streets, nor do the Hungarians allow people to starve or freeze on theirs either, but taxpayers have no duty to give them more than basic subsistence until they can be returned to their countries of origin.

Biden administration rolls out new asylum restrictions mirroring Trump-era policy.  The Biden administration released a new rule Tuesday that largely bars migrants who traveled through other countries on their way to the US-Mexico border from applying for asylum in the United States, marking a departure from decadeslong protocol.  The new 153-page proposed regulation, which could affect tens of thousands of people, is the most restrictive of a patchwork of policies put in place by the Biden administration to try and manage the US-Mexico border and is reminiscent of a Trump-era policy.

10 Steps to Save America.  We no longer have a southern border.  There have been 5 million illegal border crossings just since Joe Biden took office.  He intentionally destroyed immigration law for cheap political advantage.  Nearly 50 million current American residents were not born in the United States.  Well over 20 million — and perhaps 30 million — are illegal aliens. [...] Yet we finally found a solution in 2019-2020.  Had we continued replacing rickety border fencing with an effective wall and then completed it along the entire border, had we stopped catch-and-release, had we continued demanding that refugee status be obtained before entry, had we forced Mexico and Central American governments to stop exporting human capital and subjected them to taxes on more than $60 billion in annual remittances (along with trade penalties) for their complicity with the situation at the border, had we continued to deport those who entered illegally, had we returned to assimilation and integration on the theory any who entered America did so because they wanted to become Americans, then a desired legal, meritocratic, and diverse immigration policy might easily have assimilated and absorbed perhaps 200,000 skilled and legal immigrants per year.  Again, we had the outlines of a solution and then simply destroyed it for liberal political agendas and cheap corporate labor.

Hell's Kitchen public school overwhelmed with 100 migrant kids.  More than 100 migrant kids flooded into one Hell's Kitchen elementary school — swelling class sizes up to 38 students, The [New York] Post has learned.  The children — between 100 and 120 — were among the wave of asylum seekers pouring into the Big Apple, including on buses from Texas, some staying at a nearby shelter.  PS 111 on West 53rd Street normally has class sizes of 25 to 30.  As the classes filled with newcomers, the school wound up sending 15 of the kids to nearby PS 51, where they were enrolled in "transitional bilingual" classes, according to a PS 111 insider.  The transitional program offers instruction in Spanish half of the year, and then gradually adds English.  PS 111 further eased the crunch by starting its own transitional bilingual class, with 15 students.  Another roughly 75 students stayed in regular classes, with an hour a day of English-language instruction.  Their parents were offered a choice of which approach to take.

Has the US Government Declared War on Its Citizens?  For more than forty years, Americans have begged the federal government to put a stop to illegal immigration.  Instead, Congress has done nothing but push various forms of amnesty for those whose first act upon entering this country is to break its immigration laws.  Rather than listening to voters and securing our porous borders, lawmakers have chosen to ridicule Americans as xenophobic for daring to believe that it is not healthy for the United States to have tens of millions of foreign nationals creating a parallel nation within our own.  Sex-trafficking, narco-terrorism, identity theft, drained public resources, and cultural clashes have all accompanied a federal government policy that can be described, at best, as intentionally not enforcing existing immigration law, or at worst, as willfully countermanding enforceable law by aiding and abetting border crossers with promises of social welfare upon arrival and publicly funded relocation services across the continent.  More and more Democrat-controlled jurisdictions are going so far as to demand that illegal aliens be given the right to vote in elections, effectively nullifying American citizens' votes with those of citizens of foreign nations.

Are We in a Revolution and Don't Even Know It?  If it is true that two million illegal aliens will cross the southern border with impunity in the current fiscal year, then the Biden agenda is apparently to help erode the idea of citizenship and anybody defined as an American.  Under the socialist ethos, the indigent in Yucatan and the impoverished migrant from Nigeria have as much right to enter and live in the United States as U.S. citizens.  And their respective rights under the living Constitution are now nearly identical.  In just seven months, our southern border has vanished.  Apparently, it was an artificial construct that obstructed the migrations of the global community.  We are back to a natural, pre-civilizational and Rousseauian idea of freeing migrating tribes from the chains of civilization.  And what better way to start than dispensing with unique borders, citizenship, and the idea of a nation state?

The American Descent into Madness.  Two million people are anticipated to cross the southern border, en masse and illegally, over a 12-month period.  If that absurdity were to continue, we would be adding the equivalent of a major U.S. city every year.  The new arrivals have three things in common:  Their first act was to break U.S. law by entering the country.  Their second was to break the law by residing here illegally.  And their third will be to find false identification or other illegal means to continue breaking the law.  One does not arrive as a guest in a foreign country and immediately violate the laws of his host — unless one holds those laws in contempt.  Arrivals now cross a border that had been virtually closed to illegal immigration by January 2021.  In the cynical and immoral logic of illegal immigration (that cares little for the concerns either of would-be legal immigrants or U.S. citizens), arrivals will be dependent upon the state and thus become constituents of progressives who engineered their arrival.  Yet the issue is not illegal immigration per se.  If protests were to continue in Cuba, and 1 million Cubans boated to Miami, the Biden Administration would stop the influx, in terror that so many anti-Communists might tip Florida red forever.  How strange that the U.S. government is considering going door-to-door to bully the unvaccinated, even as it ignores the daily influx of thousands from Mexico and Latin America, without worrying whether they are carrying or vaccinated for COVID-19.

Illegal immigration:  A masterstroke in race-baiting.  Our country is being fiercely attacked from within by the Marxist mob movement.  There are several areas of our society it is assaulting to overthrow our constitutional government.  The Democrats in Congress are strongly promoting an open border policy.  They understand that large influxes of illegal aliens could greatly affect the voting outcome of elections.  It also would provide for slave labor for companies, while at the same time lowering the standard of living for the American worker.  The catastrophe at our southwest border with the illegal invasion is immediately eliminating our sovereignty as a nation.  We cannot be a free and independent country without enforceable borders.  The Marxists from the White House to the halls of Congress care nothing about what this is doing to our country.  The only thing they are concerned about is obtaining their communist goals at the expense of our nation.

When Wuhan Virus Departs, World Will Be Changed.  [T]he United States has been under pressure from the Democrats to render the southern border with Mexico effectively nugatory, blocking President Donald Trump's wall at every turn in the courts, ignoring federal authority regarding immigration, and doing their best to prevent Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) from arresting and deporting criminal illegal aliens.  Just a few days ago, presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden was calling Trump's handling of the Wuhan virus crisis "xenophobic."  But now that the virus has shut down commerce and travel from New York to California, Americans are less tolerant of law-flouting than they were a month ago.  That old folks should be confined to quarters for up to four months while the homeless turn the sidewalks into open-air latrines, Hollywood, the lifeblood of Los Angeles, essentially shuts down production, and movie theaters across the nation close.  As 30,000 illegals continue to cross the southwest border per month, open borders have suddenly become a luxury even a liberal can no longer afford.

Mass Migration Is Immoral.  When countries, particularly wealthy ones, open their borders to mass migration, it inevitably creates a vacuum that draws millions, if not billions, of the rest of the world's population.  It's often a dangerous journey, and many die on the way.  Certainly, should they make it, their lives can be improved from what they were.  But, would the world truly be a better place if all who would live somewhere else got their wish?  What about those left twisting in the wind in the countries migrants are fleeing from?  Those too poor, too frail, too tied down, or even too afraid to make the move?  Assuming, as the left is prone to do, that all or even most migrants are 'good people,' does it negatively impact their countries of origin to lose so many 'good people,' people who, were they to take positive action where God placed them, could make their own country a better place?

Immigration Hurts American Workers.  Consider that more than 45 million legal immigrants currently reside in America.  On top of this there are at least another 20 million illegal migrants.  And yet, American wages are actually lower than they were in 1973.  If immigration is so good for American workers, then why did wages stagnate when the era of mass migration began?  Why do we see wages rise after crackdowns on illegal aliens and "temporary" foreign workers time and time again?  Why is California — an immigrant magnet — America's poorest state, "home" to 170,000 homeless Americans who are the victims of an income distribution more inequitable than Guatemala's?  Contrast this with Japan.  Since 1980, Japan's GDP growth per capita has actually outpaced America's — despite the fact that Japan has next to no immigration.  How is it possible that Japan has prospered without benefiting from the "economic rocket fuel" that is mass immigration?  Could it be that the libertarians are wrong?

How we became the world's suckers on immigration.  The United States is one of only two developed countries in the world (the other is Canada, and even it has some restrictions we don't have) with full "birthright citizenship," meaning that any child born when his mother was physically present within the geographical borders of the U.S. automatically gets a U.S. birth certificate and a Social Security card.  That means legal immigrants, pregnant women sneaking in on tourist visas, travelers on a three-week vacation, cheap foreign workers on "temporary" visas and, in some cases, foreign diplomats.  And that's not all.  We're the only country but two that confers automatic citizenship on children born to illegal aliens, or "anchor babies."  This is not "birthright citizenship," which refers to children born to legal immigrants.

Immigration:  The Path To Power.  MIT says our illegal immigrant population is about 22 million.  Yale says it is between 16 and 30 million.  The 11 million figure so popular in the media is ridiculous and a total lie.  The Democrat leadership desperately needs new Democrats to fill the empty space left by former middle-class Democrats they have long abandoned.  This is not about some new healthcare program or race relations or whatever.  They could not care less.  It is about power.  Every Democrat presidential candidate is united on this.

Trump is not a racist; he's pushing the Overton window to normal.  It was not so long ago that we expected people who came to America as immigrants to (a) recognize that they were invited guests, rather than entitled squatters; and (b) not to bad mouth their new country.  I know what I'm talking about, for I grew up in a world of immigrants.  Not only did my parents come from another country, so did all of their friends, as well as the parents of my own friends.  All of these immigrants, without exception, came here legally with some, such as my father, a Polish citizen, waiting years before they were allowed in thanks to national quotas.  All of these immigrants, without exception, either had to bring money with them or have someone sponsor them so that they did not become a charge on the public.  And all of these immigrants, without exception, worked hard.  Some made it financially; some, like my father, never did.  But all of them recognized that their being in America was a rare privilege.

Trump vs. the Radical Squad.  The founding fathers were not against immigration per se.  Neither is President Trump.  However, the founding fathers, like President Trump, believe that immigrants who are admitted to this country should serve the interests of American citizens, not the other way around. [...] The Democrat Party is becoming the party of open borders, led by the four radical congresswomen who do not want any enforcement of our nation's immigration laws, let alone the closing of any loopholes.

A look at all of Trump's enemies: [#1] The Democratic Party.  The sanctuary party is blocking urgent legislative immigration reform.  Democrats' top priority is to flood the U.S. with millions of illegals, and then, one day, when they control Congress and the White House, declare them all voting citizens.  Using the chain migration laws, if each immigrant sponsors ten relatives to be admitted, 30 million illegals legalized yields 300 million new American voters.  In the meantime, they intend to nibble around the fringes with assorted voting frauds like DMV and same-day voter registration, liberal mail-in voting, and ballot-harvesting.  Importing a new dependent underclass is part of the Democrats' new DNA.  Any attempt at integrity of the ballot is vilified.  Any legislative effort to reform immigration is a call to arms for the Left.  They even scoff at describing the horde of invaders as a "crisis."

The folly of free healthcare for everybody in the world.  "Mexican immigration over the border is a good thing," the late Nobel Prize winning economist Milton Friedman said in a famous 1978 lecture, before stipulating, "but it's only good so long as it's illegal."  Friedman, a libertarian icon and champion of the economic benefits of free immigration, had very little in common with today's Trumpists on this issue.  But he explained a paradox of illegal immigration this way:  "as long as it's illegal the people who come in do not qualify for welfare, they don't qualify for Social Security, they don't qualify for all the other myriads of benefits that we pour out from our left pocket into our right pocket, and so, as long as they don't qualify, they migrate to jobs.  They take jobs that most residents of this country are unwilling to take, they provide employers with workers of a kind they cannot get — they're hard workers, they're good workers — and they are clearly better off."

To be a nation of laws, we must enforce those laws.  The Left constantly argues that illegal aliens are Americans who simply haven't received the proper paperwork.  But we expect Americans to obey the law, and particularly to conform to judicial orders.  In fact, we impose fines, sanctions, and even jail time when people fail to follow court-issued orders.  Americans even expect the president to comply with judicial orders.  After all, they are orders and not requests.  Right now, we have 1 million individuals illegally in America who have been told by a judicial officer, "you must leave our country," but they refuse to leave.  That means that, not just by virtue of legal process or by entering or remaining in the country illegally, these people do not share American values.  These illegal aliens are thumbing their nose at the underpinnings of America's unique greatness:  All of us are equal before the law.

Laura Ingraham Understands the End Goal of Mass Migration.  On a podcast episode, she claims that Democrats "value the benefits that illegal immigrants will get over the value of a sovereign and independent and free nation, that is well within its sovereign right to enforce her borders."  Ingraham also noted that Democrats would always retort that "We're for legal immigration."  But now with how entrenched mass migration has become, she understands what is truly at play.  No, you're for replacing the current American population, or swamping the current American population, with a new population of people who are perhaps more hospitable to socialist ideals.

Christians Don't Have to Support Open Borders.  There is no doubt that Christians must have a special concern for the plight of refugees — those who are forced from their homes either because of natural disasters or man-made calamities; indeed, that is a constant teaching of the Catholic Church.  Even refugees, however, do not have an unqualified right of entry; their entry claims must always be weighed against our duty to accept them.  The test is whether their entry benefits and is in the interest of American citizens.  We can think of a sliding scale that presents a different moral calculation depending on the classification of those who seek entry:  refugees, criminals, and economic migrants.  As we've seen, on one end of the spectrum are refugees.  But even they do not have a presumptive right of entry, though they certainly have a very strong claim.  The easiest case involves criminals and others who wish to strike at the heart of civil society — whether they plan to do it at the border or are likely to become involved in such destabilizing activity after they're admitted.  These persons can be excluded categorically; their interests weigh not at all on the scale, and the United States is not in any way obligated to admit them.

Why amnesty isn't the answer.  With the news full of reports about more caravans headed for the border and immigration agents overwhelmed by surging numbers of migrants seeking asylum, it may seem like an odd time for our leaders in Washington to be proposing amnesty.  Yet that's what happened recently, as speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi proudly announced a proposal that would allow more than 2 million aliens to apply for U.S. citizenship.  Contrast this overture against President Trump's immigration agenda — a robust physical barrier, asylum reform, and an end to catch-and-release, among others — and it's clear that America is at a crossroads with not only our immigration policy, but our long-range direction as a nation.  An apolitical assessment of the situation would raise a simple question:  what is truly in the best long-term interests of the country?  When viewed through that prism, it is crystal-clear that more amnesty is not the answer.

Cost to U.S. Taxpayers $5.3 Billion: 429,000 Annual Immigrant Birth Costs.  Hidden in every federal budget, and unknown to 99 percent of Americans, your two U.S. Senators and House member use your money to pay for millions of legal and illegal immigrants flooding into America annually. [...]
  •   [L]egal immigrants accounted for 12.4 percent (494,000) of all births annually and illegal immigrants accounted for 7.5 percent (297,000) annually.
  •   The 297,000 births per year to illegal immigrants are more than the total number of births to all mothers in any state except California and Texas.  They are also more than the total number of births in 16 states combined, plus the District of Columbia.
  •   The estimated 28,000 births to illegal immigrants in just the Los Angles metro area are more than the total number of births in any of 14 states or the District of Columbia.
  •   More than half (54 percent) of births to immigrants (legal and illegal) are entirely or largely paid for by taxpayers because the mother is on Medicaid or uninsured.
  •   Illegal immigrants account for 11 percent (198,000) of all publicly funded births, and legal immigrants are another 13 percent (231,000).
  •   We roughly estimate that the annual cost to taxpayers for births to immigrants (legal and illegal) is $5.3 billion; $2.4 billion of which is for illegal immigrants.

Immigration to America Is Not What It Used to Be
  [#4]   Immigrants today arrive via 10-hour hops on an airliner.  In the past, waves of immigrants spent 10 months traversing land and sea in a journey of staggering expense and significant dangers.  While this isn't universally true, particularly for the overland migrants that cross America's southern border, the general point stands:  coming to America today does not require the commitment it required in the past.
  [#5]   Similarly, in the past, immigrants pretty much renounced their countries of origin.  They made a one-way trip and they adopted the language and values of America.  Today, retaining cultural unity with one's country of origin is a few clicks on the internet, a cheap telephone call, an affordable airfare. [...]
  [#6]   Immigrants in the past arrived in an America that had a voracious need for unskilled workers.  Today the American economy is relentlessly automating jobs that used to require unskilled labor, and the American population already has a surplus of unskilled workers.
  [#7]   Immigrants today are arriving in a welfare state, where they are assured of food, shelter, and medical care that are, in general, orders of magnitude better than anything available to them in their native countries.  This creates a completely different incentive to today's immigrants.  In past centuries, immigrants came to America to find freedom and to work.  Today they are offered a smorgasbord of taxpayer-funded social services.
  [#8]   Immigrant students today — especially in the coastal urban centers where most of them settle — enter a public education system that teaches them with a reverse-racist, anti-capitalist bias.  They are taught in our public schools not to assimilate, but to "celebrate diversity"; not to earn opportunities through hard work, but through fighting discrimination.

The Constitution Isn't in Crisis, but the Border Still Is.  The Republican-controlled Senate on Thursday [3/14/2019] followed the lead of the Democratic House and voted to disapprove President Trump's declaration of a national emergency at the southern border.  The success of the disapproval vote was expected in the House, where Democrats keep waving their arms and saying "It's fine!" while women and children are violently sexually assaulted, the highest number of arrests at the border since 2008 are tallied, sanctuary cities are protecting murderers, and drug seizures are up at a time when drugs are killing more people than guns, car crashes, or HIV/AIDS ever did in a single year.

The Game Is Rigged.  We currently grant one million legal permanent residencies to people from around the world every year.  The number of green card holders is expected to increase by 10 million by 2025.  That's more than the current combined population of Dallas, St. Louis, Denver, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Atlanta.  Now multiply that number by at least three and a half.  Thanks to our chain migration system, created in 1952 and expanded exponentially by Congress in 1965 and 1990, these new immigrants can sponsor their entire extended families:  parents, spouses, adult children and their children, and siblings and their children.  Princeton University researchers found that recently admitted immigrants sponsored an average of 3.45 additional relatives each.  An estimated 85,000 refugees and 20,000-plus asylees enter the country annually through an overwhelmed system so rife with fraud and abuse that the process is jokingly dubbed "refugee roulette" by immigration lawyers.  In total, from fiscal year 2008 to 2017, the U.S. gave green cards to more than 2 million migrants for various humanitarian claims — a population larger than the city of Philadelphia.  Nearly half a million more immigrants in that time frame got in through the diversity visa lottery.  Illegal aliens are eligible if a legal family member wins the jackpot.

Democrats Are Border Crisis Deniers.  We are facing a dozen crises at our border.  They are impossible to miss:  We are facing an illegal immigration crisis.  Our nation is being overrun.  Democrats can't see it.  They are in denial.  We are facing an illegal alien crime wave in America.  How many more innocent American children and cops must die before we acknowledge the crisis?  Democrats can't see it.  They are in denial.  There is an illegal alien gang crisis.  MS-13 is filling our streets with cold-blooded killers. [...] There is a child sex trafficking crisis. [...] There is a drug trafficking crisis. [...] There is a prison crisis.  Our prisons are filled with illegal aliens who have committed serious crimes such as rape and murder.  Why should we pay the bill? [...] There is the threat of a disease epidemic.  Whether it's tuberculosis or this new polio-like disease that leaves children paralyzed overnight, who knows what new diseases and tragedies are coming in through that open border? [...] There is a welfare and national debt crisis.  Millions of illegal aliens already in our country cost over $160 billion per year in welfare, food stamps, court, police and prison costs.  More come every day.

Each illegal immigrant costs US $82G, conservative think tank claims.  Every new illegal immigrant that enters the United States will cost more than $82,000 each over their lifetime, a conservative think tank that advocates for lower immigration levels has claimed.  The Center for Immigration Studies updated their 2012 analysis which put the average lifetime net fiscal cost of a border crosser at $74,722.  In the six years since, the price has jumped to $82,191.  The think tank's analysis has come into question however, with multiple outlets pushing back on its numbers and methodology.  The new figure by the CIS estimates what it takes to protect the border, educate, house and feed illegal immigrants and makes the assumption they will spend a lifetime on various welfare programs.

The Absurdity of an Open Border.  Both parties want an unrestricted flood of immigrants to America, but for different reasons.  Democrats want a permanent underclass that reliably votes Democrat.  Republicans want cheap labor to keep their Chamber of Commerce donors happy.  Neither party acknowledges any negative consequences of the current open borders policy, allowing far more than voters and workers to enter our country.  Ignored are the contagious diseases, still uncommon in America, being brought across the borders.  Or the criminals we read about daily in the news, raping and killing Americans.  Not to mention potential terrorists.

Illegal Aliens Cost Taxpayers $100+ Billion Annually.  [Scroll down]  In fact, if all Americans paid taxes at the same rate illegal aliens did, the budget deficit would be at least quadruple what it is now.  According to prior estimates of mine based off the size of the 2017 labor force, if we were to replace the entire labor force with illegal immigrants and have them pay all their taxes (including state and local) to the feds, the federal government would've collected approximately $240 billion in tax revenue in 2017, as opposed to the $3.3 trillion that the Federal government actually collected.

Trump should shut down the southern border AND the government until we fix our immigration system.  By some estimates, the cost of illegal immigrants in the country is costing the American taxpayer between $116-$134 billion annually.  Now we find out in the last few weeks that 63 percent of non-citizens, half of which are here illegally, are on some form of welfare — again, funded by the American taxpayer.  And the longer non-citizens are in the country, the more likely they are to be on some form of welfare.  If they've been here ten years or more, the percentage goes up to 70 percent.  For comparison, only about 30 percent of native-born American citizens are on some form of welfare.  Now take in those statistics and throw in the fact that over the next 20 years between 7 to 8 million new immigrants will come into the United States via chain migration.  Statistics show that those immigrants, by a two to one margin, favor the Democratic Party.  Why?  Because they want a greater welfare state.

Democrats Deny These Immigration Truths.  Both the Senate and the House oath of offices are nearly identical.  They begin like this:  "I do solemnly swear or affirm that I will support and defend the constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same."  At this point, are we even sure that Chuck and Nancy took the oath?  I have a news flash for the dynamic duo:  When migrants illegally cross our borders, whether they come to work or to collect welfare, using false documents, whether they come to deal drugs or join murderous gangs that are already here, this does constitute a foreign enemy action.

The Word 'Mean' is Leftists' Lethal Weapon.  Fully supported by American leftists, illegals are [defying America].  They are invading our country whether we like it or not, arrogantly breaking our immigration laws.  They demand to feed on our welfare safety-net set up for Americans.  Outrageously, Obama gave illegals freebies unavailable to Americans — free attorneys and more.  Obama used taxpayers' money to spend over 60 grand per illegal to settle them in America.  We spend $11 to $22 billion each year on freebies for illegals.  Obama spread illegals around the country, irresponsibly putting medically untested children of illegals into our schools infecting our kids with strange diseases. [...] The illegals invading our country today have no desire to become Americans; no desire to assimilate.  Quite the opposite.  Illegals give learning English, embracing our culture, and honoring our flag their middle fingers.  Fake news hides the fact that many of the thousands of young men illegally invading our country are known gang members.

Alternatives to the Nihilistic Futility of Mass Immigration.  [Scroll down]  None of this is sustainable.  Socialism, whether through foreign aid to developing nations, or through more government benefits approved with the swing voters coming from developed nations, eventually collapses.  Productive citizens, outvoted, overtaxed, and disenfranchised in their own nations, lose their incentives to work hard.  This leads to several inevitable conclusions.  First, it is beyond the capacity of developed nations to accommodate ongoing migrations from the developing world.  Just the increase in Africa's population each decade exceeds the entire current population of the United States or Western Europe.  Second, current foreign aid policies are completely unsustainable, because they facilitate this population increase without improving any of the other "humanitarian indicators" that might lead to a cultural shift towards lower birth rates.  Third, while it is possible to decouple economic growth from environmental degradation, the more people there are, the harder that gets.

No Country for Caravans.  Right now, just beyond our southern border are hundreds of foreign nationals champing at the bit to violate our sovereignty.  They have no regard for our laws or for our way of life and we are not now prepared, or even willing, to instill such regard in them.  They will soon be joined by thousands more, and, if this wave is successful in penetrating our borders, perhaps millions more will be emboldened to come.  Will Trump find the resolve that Reagan could not muster?  Or will he capitulate like his predecessors and let our sovereignty go quietly into the night?

Stop the caravan and build the wall to keep deadly drugs out and save lives.  A perfect storm is brewing in the Southern Hemisphere and making its way north to the United States.  Heroin, fentanyl and other opioids already pour through America's southern border and this infiltration is one of three elements that will feed the perfect storm.  Every day, 115 Americans die from opioid overdoses and from tainted drugs passing through our border with Mexico.  The second element is MS-13, the brutal gang that is a drug courier of choice used by the Mexican drug cartels for distribution of these drugs within the United States.  When these two elements are mixed with the third element — the caravan of several thousand people, mostly men, seeking to break through our southern border — you complete a toxic combination leading to a perfect storm.

Border surge highest since 2011; each illegal immigrant costs $70,000 — 7x deportation price.  The net costs to taxpayers for every illegal immigrant who sneaks into the United States has reached nearly $70,000, about seven times the cost of deporting them, and about $70 billion, according to a new report.  And, according to federal Census data, the surge of legal and illegal immigrants across the Mexico-U.S. border has reached a new high since 2011 and matched the historic high of 1.75 million set in 1999.  The latest Census data from 2016 shows that immigrants continue to come into the United States, both legally and illegally, and the costs to taxpayers in enforcement and social services continues to rise — even when offset by the taxes they pay.

Immigration — The left's recruiting tool and deceptive marketing ploy
[#1]   40% of all workers in LA County (10.2 million people) are working for cash; and not paying taxes.  This is because they are predominantly illegal immigrants, working without a green card.  (Donald Trump was right)
[#2]   95% of warrants for murder in Los Angeles are for illegal aliens.
[#3]   75% of people on the most wanted list in Los Angeles are illegal aliens.
[#4]   Over 2/3 of all births in Los Angeles County are to illegal alien Mexicans on Medi-Cal, whose births were paid for by taxpayers.
[#5]   Nearly 35% of all inmates in California detention centers are Mexican nationals; they are here illegally.
[#6]   Over 300,000 illegal aliens in Los Angeles County are living in garages.
[#7]   The FBI reports half of all gang members in Los Angeles are most likely illegal aliens from south of the border.
[#8]   Nearly 60% of all occupants of HUD properties are illegal.
[#9]   21 radio stations in LA are Spanish-speaking.
[#10]   In LA County, 5.1 million people speak English; 3.9 million, speak Spanish.  (There are 10.2 million people, in LA County.
(All 10 of the above facts were published in the Los Angeles Times)
Less than 2% of illegal aliens are picking our crops, but 29% are on welfare.
Over 70% of the United States' annual population growth, (and over 90% of California, Florida and New York), results from Immigration.  Also, 29% of inmates in federal prisons are illegal aliens.  But the left feels that pandering to the masses of border crossers will lead to a tantalizing treasure trove of steady stalwart supporters ensuring decades if not generations of liberal control.

No justice for taxpaying Americans.  There are two systems of justice, but it's not so much about race as it is about immigration status.  If you're an American, chances are you get hard time.  If you're an illegal immigrant, you get everything, and I do mean everything, including an EBT card, MassHealth and a Sect. 8 housing certificate.  First, when the "racist" cops say you have the right to remain silent, the illegal says "no habla" English.  He gets a translator.  He claims he's "indigent," so he gets a public defender.  If he's charged with OUI, the public defender hires a psychologist (also on the taxpayers' dime) to say that the illegal immigrant "lacks the enzyme" to metabolize alcohol and thus can't be held accountable for killing some gringo.  But the real double standard kicks in when the undocumented Democrat gets to the courtroom.  A taxpaying American can only dream of the kid-gloves treatment these Third World fiends get.

Open Borders Are Not Libertarian So Long As America Is A Welfare State.  "Progressives" have been calling for unrestricted immigration, for abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and for granting voting rights to illegal immigrants.  "Open borders" advocates decry opponents as racist. [...] Slightly over one-fourth of the children in the United States are now either immigrants or the children of immigrants.  Since the total expenditures on public schooling in the U.S. is almost $700 billion per year, this cost is far greater than the GDP gains cited by Dalmia, and greater than the $50 billion she cites for "The Wall."  It's also greater than the annual $104 billion for food stamps, the $46 billion for Section 8 housing programs, or the $30 billion for Aid to Families with Dependent Children for all residents, citizen or non-citizen.  Immigrants also use other social services, but public education for all children residing in the United States is mandatory.  In nineteenth-century America, supposedly with the open borders policies libertarians favor, immigrant children were not legally excluded from the labor market or mandated a public education.

The Republican Party:  Not Much of a Horse But the Only One in the Corral.  The first economic consequence of mass immigration is lower labor costs across the economy, from lettuce pickers to computer programmers, and that pushes historic quantities of money up to America's corporate owners and executives.  The working and middle classes endure the economic downside in the form of fewer jobs and much lower wages.  This has all been discussed ad nauseam before.  But it can't be repeated too often:  Mass immigration has been an economic bonanza for major owners and executives and an economic disaster for the other 80% of the population.

No One Has A 'Right' To Immigrate Into The United States.  Is there a human right to immigrate?  Many defenders of open borders think so.  Individuals, they argue, are entitled to freedom of movement, which entails the right to immigrate from one country to another.  This view has found support in the newly elected president of Mexico, who remarked that there is a "human right" to move to the United States.  This appeal to freedom of movement is dubious argument for a number of reasons.  For starters, freedom of movement is not unlimited:  my freedom of movement does not give me the right to move into your home.

The Left Want to Abolish ICE. What Does That Mean?  ICE is a division within the Department of Homeland Security that is responsible for immigration enforcement, smuggling investigations, and terrorism prevention.  It's split into several subdivisions, including Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO), which actually carries out arrests and deportations, and Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), which tackles drug- and terrorism-related issues.  ICE has about 20,000 employees, with 400 offices and $6 billion in annual funding.  ICE is not the entity directly responsible for policing the border — that is Customs and Border Protection, although ICE does deport some of the people CBP apprehends.  ICE is also not the entity responsible for the recent family separation controversy — that is CBP again, which apprehends immigrants at the border, and the Department of Justice, which prosecutes them.

Invasion U.S.A.  This is no longer immigration, this is an invasion to take advantage of our wealth, culture and resources.  As radio talk show host Michael Savage recently said, "The lifeboat is full." I think it is tipping over.  If a million, or more, armed men crossed our border, or any border, it would be considered an invasion.  Yet, if the same number of men, women and children illegally cross our borders, unarmed, seeking our wealth and playing upon our kindness, we are expected to welcome them with open arms.

Democracy requires borders.  It was telling to watch how Democrats and left-wing commentators responded.  Having shed tears all week about family separation and traumatized children, Trump's opponents began objecting to any detention of families entering the U.S. illegally.  A chorus of critics described the new policy as "handcuffs for all."  An MSNBC host portrayed as a dark "totalitarian" act the very idea of a border guard stopping and arresting an illegal immigrant.  Behind these objections is a premise that goes unstated because it is radical and deeply unpopular.  It is that border enforcement is itself illegitimate.

The Asylum Crisis Is a Security Challenge, Not a Legal Problem.  Congress cannot enact a law that prevents Central American migrants from flooding the border.  Or, one supposes, it can enact a thousand such laws and look on in Canute-like futility as the incursion continues.  Passing laws is not a serious response to a security challenge, and an unserious response always emboldens the challenger.  Outsiders can overwhelm a national border by armed force or, if the nation is not willing to defend its border, by sheer numbers.  Either way, the challenge can be answered only by the deployment of physical barriers and armed force sufficient to deny the onslaught and discourage others from coming.  Only after the crisis is over, after the security threat is contained, can we establish a legal process backed by resources scaled to handle the number of outsiders realistically expected to petition for entry.

The immorality of the open-borders Left.  We have two choices when it comes to border security and interior enforcement.  We can continue telegraphing the message that when you come here with children you are home free.  This will continue fueling the drug crisis, growing MS-13, enriching the drug cartels, inducing sex trafficking and terrible crimes at the border, encouraging illegals to kidnap children to gain admission, and causing death and mayhem on both sides of the border.  Or we could finally deter this behavior by announcing an end to any immigration requests not processed in a controlled environment through our embassy.  If you are concerned about "separating children" and don't support the latter path, then you need to seriously examine your values and priorities.  The entirety of the epidemic-level increase in both drugs and MS-13 began around 2014-2015 with the rise of UACs and the collapse of interior enforcement against criminal alien drug trafficking networks operating in our major cities.  That was all precipitated by the rise of the "dreamer" political movement incentivizing people to come here as children or to bring children here to gain admission through catch-and-release.

The Education America Needs.  We spend billions every year on illegal immigration; that is, on persons who drive down wages even as they contribute nothing to the welfare state from which they derive a great deal.  (Studies estimate that 50 to 60 percent of illegal immigrants receive entitlements.)  Not to mention the many crimes — drug-related and otherwise — that result from such illegal entry.

Pelosi's 'Immoral, Ineffective and Expensive' Argument.  If you try to attend next month's Super Bowl at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, you better have a ticket or some other type of pass that allows you to legally enter the facility.  If you don't, you won't get in.  They have built a great big beautiful wall around that field, which, according to the stadium's website, was constructed with $1.129 billion in private and public money.  To enter, you will need to pass through a gate, where people will verify whether you have the right to do so.  Because of this, you can bet almost no one will migrate from other parts of the country or the world to see if they can illegally penetrate the security around the Super Bowl and attend the game for free.  They know they cannot succeed.  So, they will not try.  That will also spare them the misery of standing outside in Minnesota in February.  The NFL [...] is more serious about border security at its stadiums than Congress has been in recent decades about border security in the American southwest.

How to Report Illegal Aliens.  Under federal law, any non-U.S. citizen is an alien.  Aliens who have entered the United States without permission, or who have violated the terms of their admission, are identified under the law as illegal aliens.  That is a fact, not an issue for debate.  It doesn't matter whether someone crossed our nation's borders illegally or overstayed a visa, their presence in the country is illegal which makes them deportable under the Immigration and Nationality Act.

The U.S. Has More Immigrants Than Any Other Country.  A new study by the Pew Research Center shows that the U.S. has more than 40 million immigrants, more than any other country in the world.  It also takes in about one-fifth of the world's total migrants.  The report looks at trends from 1960 to 2015.  According to the report in 2015 the U.S. hit a record high of 43.2 million immigrants accounting for 13.4% of the population, the same number that is used by the Center of Immigration Studies.  This is four times higher than in 1960 when only 9.7 million immigrants lived in the U.S., accounting for only 5.4% of the population.

The Case Against Immigration.  In the United States, there is strong evidence that the national interest has not been well served by the country's immigration policy over the last five decades.  Even as levels of immigration have approached historic highs, debate on the topic has been subdued, and policymakers and opinion leaders in both parties have tended to overstate the benefits and understate or ignore the costs of immigration.  It would make a great deal of sense for the country to reform its immigration policies by more vigorously enforcing existing laws, and by moving away from the current system, which primarily admits immigrants based on family relationships, toward one based on the interests of Americans.

Law Takes a Holiday.  The law states that foreign nationals cannot enter and permanently reside in the United States without going through a checkpoint and in most cases obtaining a legal visa or green card.  But immigration law has been all but ignored.  Or it was redefined as not committing additional crimes while otherwise violating immigration law.  Then the law was effectively watered down further to allow entering and residing illegally if not committing "serious" crimes.  Now, the adjective "serious" is being redefined as something that does not lead to too many deportations.  The logical end is no immigration law at all — and open borders.

The Mainstream Media Have Forfeited All Respect.  In 1988 there were 16 million immigrants (including fewer than 1 million illegal aliens) living in the United States.  Today, that number has skyrocketed to 42.4 million (including an estimated 12 million illegal aliens).  This enormous increase (165%) in the immigrant population (while the overall population growth was just 29%) has not only put pressure on a stagnant job market, but also has been a major factor in the decline of median income in the country as well as skyrocketing public spending.  Rather than report the facts, the media chose instead to highlight human-interest stories about the plight of an illegal immigrant family whenever one could be found, to extensively and sympathetically cover immigrant marches and demonstrations, to highlight accusations of alleged xenophobia and intolerance, and generally be an ombudsman for the immigrant population.

These 16 quotes prove America can exclude or deport any immigrant — for any reason.  The ubiquitous notion among the political and legal establishment that there are any constitutional limitations on our sovereign right to exclude any immigrant for any reason is the most dangerous constitutional crisis we are facing in the coming months.  It is one of the reasons why I wrote "Stolen Sovereignty" — as a reminder of our history, traditions, and laws on immigration and sovereignty.  Based on 200 years of case law, the accepted laws of nation states, and the principles of the social compact, popular sovereignty, and jurisdictional sovereignty, the American people — as expressed through their elected representatives — have the right to exclude or deport any non-citizen for any reason.  The prudence of such a move is a political question best dealt with by the political branches of government depending on the situation at hand.  But the courts have absolutely no ability to force the political branches to allow aliens to remain in this country against statutes passed by Congress.  There is no due process for aliens to remain in the country in the same way non-citizens have full due process when facing jail time or indefinite detention.  That is the most settled area of law.  Even those who aren't politically comfortable with exercising this power to the max must concede that it is a dangerous proposition to cede the legal right to exercise that power.

Time for a Complete Halt on All Immigration.  This is a serious proposal — and a necessary one.  Consider:  with the U.S. having a replacement-level fertility rate of 2.1 children per woman, immigration is the only reason our population is increasing.  As to this, our numbers have swelled from 100 million people in 1915 to 200 million in 1968 to 320 million today.  And it's projected they will reach approximately 400 million just after 2050.  Obviously, such growth involves strain on natural resources, social services and infrastructure.  Yet while the Left purports to care about the environment, it also pursues open-border policies with jihadist-like zeal.  But when will enough population be enough?  When it stands at 450 million?  A half billion?  A billion?  The Left likes to push "family planning."  But what about national-family planning?

30 to 40 Million Illegals Can Be Deported.  The first thing to recognize is that the illegal alien problem arose because of the 1987 Reagan Amnesty nearly 30 years ago.  By some estimates, up to 40 million people have entered the USA illegally since that time, so encouraging them to leave may take an extended period of time as well. [...] Somehow, the left and corporatist right have come to believe that our country would collapse without illegal immigration and open borders.  We should remind those bleeding hearts who support the invasion of our country by third-worlders that, for example, fresh produce somehow made its way to market before 1987 without illegals living here.  Note also that countries with strict immigration policies and zero illegal immigration enjoy ample supplies of fruits and vegetables.

Immigration, the Supreme Court and President Obama.  In 2014, President Barack Obama signed 12 executive orders directing various agencies in the departments of State, Justice and Homeland Security to refrain from deporting some 4 million adult immigrants illegally present in the United States if they are the parents of children born here or legally present here and if they hold a job, obtain a high-school diploma or its equivalent, pay taxes and stay out of prison.  Unfortunately for the president, the conditions he established for avoiding deportation had been rejected by Congress.  In response to the executive orders, 26 states and the House of Representatives sued the president and the recipients of the orders, seeking to prevent them from being enforced.

How The Cloward-Piven Strategy Is Driving The United States To Collapse.  Illegal Immigration on its own is already one of the most important threats to the future of the United States, because it reflects a deliberate attempt by our political elite to displace and supplant its native population with one that will always vote for them, remain dependent on welfare, and take jobs from Americans by working "under the table" at wages that American citizens cannot survive on.  This raises a logical question:  if illegal immigration already displaces such a great number of Americans and creates so much controversy and strife, why keep bringing in as many as possible?  A further question to ask is why do so now, as opposed to waiting until the economy is better?  Our nation is nowhere near the point of recovery since nearly 50% of Americans are already on one form or another of government assistance, our nation has an interest rate student loan bubble that will both burst soon, and an economy that is either being outsourced or stolen by thieves with H1B visas.  All of these factors clearly show that our nation is at its breaking point, yet we have a political elite that wishes to first enact unconditional amnesty and then import migrants from shady 3rd world countries.  Any rational observer will realize that adding 13 million MORE welfare, public assistance or student loan recipients may likely cause the entire system to collapse due to inefficiency and a lack of adequate funding.

Chilling Timeline:  Obama's Dismantling of U.S. Immigration Laws.  The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) has recently released a video they call a summary of the "Obama Immigration Policy Timeline Wrecking Ball" which outlines steps Obama has taken from the beginning of his presidency to dismantle enforcement of U.S. immigration laws.  The video also shows how Hillary Clinton assisted his actions.  The video is a must see by every American.  It explains what Obama meant when he promised to "fundamentally transform" America.  One of the reasons why President Obama is so concerned about Donald Trump winning the White House in 2016, is because Trump has built his campaign around the promise of stopping illegal immigration and building a wall on the Mexican border.  Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton has embraced illegal immigrants, promising to enact amnesty within her first 100 days in office and said she will "fight for immigration reform that provides a full and equal path to citizenship."  [Video clip]

New York Democrats to Distribute Flyers to Illegals at Southern Border Warning Them 'You Are Better Off' Somewhere Else.  New York Democrats are planning to distribute flyers at the US-Mexico border telling illegals to "consider another city."  On Wednesday, Mayor Eric Adam's office announced this plan to "combat misinformation at the border."  The flyers will be in both Spanish and English and will warn the illegals that New York City is the most expensive city in the world so they will be better off somewhere else.  How interesting that a sanctuary city run by Democrats who have been all for illegal immigration is now troubled by the flood of illegal aliens.  Leftist ideas sound compassionate coming from those Democrat leaders until it's at their front door.

What Biden's latest outlandish immigration action tells us about the next one.  The Biden administration recently issued yet another outlandish immigration action, but most Americans likely did not realize it.  I'm talking about the Department of Homeland Security's decision to extend and "redesignate" Temporary Protected Status for more than 700,000 illegal aliens from Venezuela that the Biden administration has already allowed into the U.S. For many Americans, this may sound like a niche policy decision that only immigration policy experts care to discuss.  That's what the Biden Administration is counting on.  Don't be fooled, this is the epitome of an America Last policy.

Close the Border.  Then What?  By some estimates, there are thirty million illegal aliens in the United States.  Illegals have been pouring in at the rate of at least two million a year, and now that influx is being deliberately increased.  Leftists want to give them amnesty.  Illegals are being issued driver's licenses.  Illegals will also be allowed to vote in municipal elections.  They are even being given payments, which will ensure they'll vote Democrat.  Does anyone doubt that mail-in shenanigans are planned for the 2024 election?  Leftists are willing to intentionally demolish this country if that's what it takes to stay in power.  Inevitably, the day will come when the government will be forced to control the border.  We will then be stuck with all the illegal aliens who made it in.  To nobody's surprise, the government has "lost track" of most of them.  I'd like to propose a model for decisively dealing with these illegal aliens once the border is finally secure. [...]

Guess who's upset now about illegal aliens depressing wages.  Karl Marx once wrote of repeating events in history that they occur "first as tragedy, then as farce."  That was my reaction to an article appearing in the Thursday, September 22 New York Post.  The article focused on complaints of existing illegal aliens in the metropolitan New York City area.  The huge influx of illegal aliens has them occupying 50% of the hotel rooms in the city.  They are sleeping all over the sidewalks in Midtown Manhattan.  Mayor Adams has declared that the costs of dealing with them "will destroy the city."  NYC has prided itself on being a sanctuary city willing to house and feed any and all illegal aliens.  Daily television showed city authorities meeting the arriving buses from the border, shaking hands and greeting the new illegals.  But the large flow from the border has swamped the system.  As was posited in Field of Dreams: "If you build it, they will come."  They did, and they did.

The Border Has Fallen.  During the Trump years, Democrats attacked Trump as cruel for separating migrant parents and children.  "A policy that separates young children from their parents isn't a 'deterrent.' It's unconscionable," said Biden in 2018.  "A policy that traumatizes children isn't a bargaining chip.  It's abhorrent."  But Dr. Paul Wise, a pediatrician in charge of monitoring the treatment of migrant children in the custody of US Customs and Border Protection, reports that the Biden administration's US Customs and Border Protection has been separating children as young as eight from their parents.  "Interviews with parents and children found that there were minimal or no opportunities for phone contact or direct interaction between parent and child," Wise said in the court filing.  "The separation of families and the lack of interaction while in custody do significant, and potentially lasting, harm to children, particularly younger children."  There's no denying the crisis.  In some areas, the border between Texas and Mexico looks like a refugee camp in sub-Saharan Africa.

Joe Biden's biggest nightmares are all starting to come true.  [Scroll down]  Anyone want to put money on the idea of Joe Biden putting all hands on deck to resolve the migrant surge?  He hasn't even visited the border.  He fobbed the border issue off onto the incompetent Kamala Harris and she didn't do anything, either.  Elon Musk, who's been sued by the Justice Department for not hiring "refugees" and has seen illegal alien incursions onto his SpaceX company lands, has announced that he will be visiting the border.  The president of Honduras has visited the border, and certainly President Trump has visited the border.  But Joe Biden hasn't visited the border, let alone taken any effective action to stop the illegal crossings.  If anything, his "increased pathways" to migration has had the effect of adding highways to severely congested areas, the way Robert Moses once did in New York City, only to find himself profoundly surprised that the added highways didn't lighten the traffic load.  Demand, in other words, for a free ride from America across the globe, is simply too great, so the more Joe opens 'legal" pathways (and this is highly questionable) the more the surge grows.  His solution has been to gaslight and cover up the problem, not actually solve it — and the results speak for themselves.

If you like Venezuela so much, why did you leave?
¡Conquista! Illegals plant Venezuela's flag on Texas soil.  At Eagle Pass, surging illegal migrants planted a gargantuan Venezuelan flag on a Texas island in the Rio Grande as they attempted to cross illegally into the U.S. Texas Department of Public Safety's Tactical Marine Unit* troops sensibly ripped it down and apparently chased the migrants back across the river to the Mexican side.  But the deed was done.  The U.S. stood conquered and humiliated, even if only for a few minutes.  What fun they had.  [Tweet with video clip]

Video: Texas Troops Spring Into Action After Illegal Immigrants Plant Foreign Flag on US Soil.  As the porous border near Eagle Pass, Texas, continues to see huge numbers of illegal immigrants pass over it, one group decided to claim part of Texas in the name of the nation they had presumably escaped from.  Lt. Chris Olivarez, a spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety's South Texas Region, noted that many of the immigrants hailed from Venezuela, although the flag they planted on an Island with the borders of Texas appeared to be Colombian.  Wherever it happened to come from, members of the DPS' Tactical Marine Unit wasn't going to let it remain planted on American soil.

Biden Admin "finally found asylum-seekers it opposes".  Tens of thousands of people — including substantial numbers of single military age males — illegally cross the southern border into the United States every week under the pretense of seeking aslyum.  But almost none of them would qualify under the exacting standards for asylum, it's all a sham in which they know that they will be released into the U.S. with an appearance date years in the future.  Under the current administration, almost none of them will be deported, and almost all will stay here in one capacity or another indefinitely.  Few will actually be granted asylum.  This has all the appearances of an organized invasion, with people funneled to the U.S. by cartels and others, included among them provocateurs who plant foreign flags on U.S. soil:  [Tweet with video clip]

Biden DHS Has Approved Hundreds of Thousands of Migrants for Secretive Foreign Flights Directly into U.S. Airports.  A little-known part of the Biden administration's CBP One parole program permits inadmissible aliens to make an appointment to fly directly to airports in the interior of the United States, bypassing the border altogether.  Partial data on the program, just obtained by the Center for immigration Studies pursuant to a Freedom of Information Act request, reveals that more than 200,000 people from four countries have used this direct-flight and parole program over the past year.

The Editor says...
If they are "inadmissible," why is the government inviting them in, and who is paying for the air fare?

No Need to Swim the Rio Grande.  The Biden administration is doing all it can to maximize the number of illegal immigrants entering the country before a Republican administration can take over and stop the bleeding.  The Center for Immigration Studies has used a FOIA request to shed light on an almost unbelievable aspect of the administration's selling out of America: [...] But wait, these are supposed to be refugees, right?  Asylum seekers.  And they use a mobile app to enroll in Biden's illegal "come to America" program, and can afford to buy a plane ticket to an American city?  I would really like to know who is actually paying for these airplane tickets.  You may wonder where these hundreds of thousands of illegals are landing, but the Biden administration won't tell you.

Is the Left Happy That They Got Their Wish?  [T]he Obama and the Biden administrations finally seemed to have achieved their aims, in what the Obamas once boasted would be the "fundamental transformation" of America into something unrecognizable by its Founders.  But what they gave us was nihilism — the destruction of norms, laws, and customs.  There is no border, no criminal justice system, no real president any more.  The citizen is a serf, the illegal alien the veritable citizen.  The former needs a passport to reenter the country, the latter is waved on through.  There is a slob in gym shorts and a hoodie establishing dress codes for the Senate, teen murderers bragging that they won't spend a day in jail, and a would-be state legislator filming herself doing sexual gymnastics while begging for cash only to be upset over the invasion of her "privacy."  So the Left got what it wanted and gave us our new America.

Biden Admin Lets 221K+ Migrants Fly Directly Into U.S..  The America-Last Biden administration is reportedly allowing hundreds of thousands of illegal migrants to request flights over the southern border and directly into the United States.  The Biden administration has been trying to hide the true scope of the illegal alien invasion of our country through the CBP (Customs and Border Protection) One program.  As I previously explained, hundreds of thousands of migrants every year can apply for a pseudo-legitimization through the CBP One app, meaning that the Biden administration was claiming a reduction in illegal crossings by the simple expedient of labeling many thousands of barely-vetted illegals legitimate.  But that's not the only disturbing aspect of the CBP One program.  Apparently, illegals are taking airline trips from other countries straight into the U.S.

Biden's Flying in Illegal Crossers on "Secretive Foreign Flights".  Todd Bensman posted on X, "Our Government just let in 240,000 illegal immigrants."  He stated that the government let 240,000 illegal immigrants fly into the US and then let them go.  "Where are they now?  The government doesn't know."  He spoke with Steve Bannon, "DHS has been authorizing the flights from foreign countries directly into 43 US airports, so far 221,000 migrants [illegal aliens] uncounted, never discussed, never published."  The Biden regime is flying these people in to avoid the optics of illegal aliens gaming the amnesty system.

11K Migrants Caught Entering Arizona Border Sector in One Week, 40K This Month.  Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents apprehended approximately 11,000 migrants during the past week, according to the sector chief.  Unofficial Border Patrol reports reviewed by Breitbart Texas reveal the apprehension of approximately 40,000 migrants so far this month.  Tucson Sector Chief Patrol Agent John Modlin posted a report on X indicating his agents apprehended approximately 11,000 migrants during the past week.  One of those migrants was a convicted rapist who was deported after a conviction in the state of Washington.

Broken barriers.  Federal forces helping migrants cross.  Charities' millions spent bussing them North.  A migrant carries a tiny baby around a razor wire fence and up a steep Texas riverbank where he precariously hands the child to another man atop a shipping container.  Within minutes, a uniformed federal officer arrives to help.  He hoists up the others in the 30-person group as they leisurely scale the fortifications and illegally enter the country.  A visibly pregnant woman is next.  She's guided to river on the Mexican side by a smuggler.  Nearby, Texas state border guards simply look on.  They know all too well that Mexican cartels and human traffickers take advantage of these desperate people and use their children like pawns — even posing as their parents to curry favor with U.S. immigration officials, who appear sympathetic.  Not that a harder line would achieve much — they're overwhelmed.

Biden-Migration: More Aliens Than 32 States.  Since Joe Biden has come to office, he has endorsed and incentivized more aliens to come here illegally than the populations of 32 states (counting the District of Columbia.)  Contemplate that — a replacement population for any single of 32 sovereign territories.  Doing the math you can also quickly spot that the 5.9 million people that have crossed illegally and not been vetted would be a replacement for the bottom 8 states/territories combined.  Remember how it "only" took 19 individuals to execute 9/11?  Well the interesting news here is that in 2023 the U. S. Border Patrol has already stopped 146 individuals currently on the terrorist watch list.  One with ties to ISIS was caught operating as a human smuggler in August.  The 146 were also the ones that happened to bestopped and checked.  More than 1.8 million aliens have eluded capture and currently roam the interior with zero pressure to reveal themselves.  There is no knowing how many terrorists are among them.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton Receives Briefing On Colony Ridge.  Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said he is exploring options on how to address problems at Colony Ridge, a massive housing development north of Houston that's become a hub for illegal immigrants thanks to financing methods that circumvent any need for proof-of-citizenship documents.  Paxton, fresh off the sidelines after a failed attempt by the legislature to impeach him, said he received a briefing on the development this week after it was the subject of an investigation by The Daily Wire.  "I got a briefing on this yesterday," Paxton told radio host Michael Berry, calling it "completely insane that they can set up these villages with illegal immigrants."  Paxton said, however, that legally there is no "clear path" to stopping the development's growth, which has led to a spike in crime that many believe is tied to Mexican cartel activity.

Mexico Says They are Overwhelmed with Illegal Migrants, President.  You know things are bad when the Mexican government says they are overwhelmed at their southern border with 10,000 global migrants arriving daily en route to the United States southern border. [...] The Cloward-Piven strategy is all about overwhelming the systems, and then letting government step in to fix the crisis they create.

Colony Ridge:  The 'Fastest Growing Development' In The U.S. Is A Magnet For Illegal Immigrants.  A Texas land developer has established a sprawling settlement north of Houston where thousands of illegal immigrants are believed to have settled, raising concerns among experts and elected officials that the development 400 miles in the interior of the United States could become a strategic asset for cartels.  Located in Liberty County, Texas near the small town of Plum Grove, the Colony Ridge development is a sprawling community that, based on an analysis of publicly available information, is now over 60 square miles and nearly the size of the nation's capital, Washington, D.C.  Its population is estimated to be anywhere between 50,000 to 75,000, and it is growing rapidly thanks to a marketing plan targeted at Texas' hispanic population.

We Do Not Have a Broken Immigration System.  We Have a Broken Enforcement System.  I am so sick of hearing that the United States has a "broken" immigration system.  There is nothing wrong with America's immigration system.  It's a system of laws passed by the people's duly elected representatives that enables limited and orderly immigration. [...] Asylum is not for aliens who "came here to work hard" or who "want to provide a better life for their children" or who have "no opportunity in their home country."  That's unfortunate, but it is emphatically not a legitimate reason to be granted asylum.  And entering my country illegally (which my family entered legally) and then lying on your federal asylum request is grounds for prompt removal, according to our perfectly good, popularly and properly passed laws.  An American who lies on or falsifies a federal application commits a felony.  Just ask the president's son.

The Biden Admin Destroyed Our Immigration Law.  Since early 2021 we have witnessed somewhere between 7 million and 8 million illegal entries across the now-nonexistent southern border of the U.S.  The more the border vanished, the more federal immigration law was rendered inert, and the more Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas spun fantasies that the "border is secure."  He is now written off as a veritable "Baghdad Bob" propagandist.  But how and why did the Biden administration destroy immigration law as we knew it?  The Trump administration's initial efforts to close the border had been continually obstructed in the Congress, sabotaged by the administrative state, and stymied in the courts.  Nonetheless, it finally had secured the border by early 2020.  Yet almost all the Trump administration's successful initiatives were immediately overturned in 2021.  Construction of the wall was abruptly stopped, its projected trajectory canceled.  The disastrous Obama-era "catch and release" policy of immigration nonenforcement was resurrected.

Biden's DHS let 200,000 illegal immigrants fly directly into 43 cities.  The Biden administration has unleashed a new program to boost illegal immigration that allows immigrants to fly directly from their hometowns into a U.S. city of their choice, according to newly obtained records.  Instead of rushing the Texas border, the program lets immigrants use the administration's app to pick a destination, buy an airline ticket, and fly in unseen on what amounts to ghost flights.  According to the Center for Immigration Studies, which sued the Department of Homeland Security for the documents on the program, over 210,000 have been processed since January.  That is a population the size of Rochester, New York, or Des Moines, Iowa.

Shocking 3.8 million migrants have entered US since Biden took office — 1.5 million sneaked in and are still here.  A jaw-dropping 3.8 million people have entered the United States through its borders since President Joe Biden took office in 2021 — nearly half of whom slipped into the country illegally and were never caught.  Over the last three years, 2,345,600 people have been granted Notices to Appear (NTAs) before an immigration court, according to figures compiled by Syracuse University's TRAC immigration database.  NTAs are issued to people who arrive on US soil, hand themselves in to Border Patrol and claim asylum.  If they are deemed to potentially have a case, they are assigned a hearing — often years in advance — where a judge will determine if they can remain in the country or will be deported.  The filings provide an accurate picture of the number of migrants entering the country.

The Psychology of Illegal Immigration.  The conscious decision to illegally enter America has consequences.  Often it leads to some immediate economic and educational advantages for illegal immigrants and their children.  Education and a job in America afford the ability to send money back home to relatives in the country of origin.  However, drug cartels forcibly require illegal immigrants to pay for assistance in crossing our American border.  Sometimes such money is extracted violently or via forced sex trafficking behaviors.  Intimidation by cartel criminals shows cowardice.  Moreover, the shadow-side of the illegal entry decision lives on and festers in the subconscious mind of illegal immigrants.  The implications of such an illegal immigrant parent's decision results in the intergenerational transmission of guilt and shame to the minds of their children and grandchildren.  If there are no overt signs of this cultural class guilt and shame it is because of massive denial and reaction formation.  Shameful and shameless behavior and hidden guilt about it can spawn acting-out behavior.  Alcoholism, crime, reckless driving, and shameless predatory sexual behavior can result.  In other words, illegal immigrant parents' actions have conscious, preconscious, and unconscious impact on their children's minds, morals, and character.

GOP Governors Demand Biden Disclose Where DHS Is Resettling Illegal Aliens.  Republican governors are calling on President Joe Biden to "provide honest, accurate, detailed information" on where his administration is resettling tens of thousands of border crossers and illegal aliens released into the United States every month.  In a letter to Biden, Montana Gov. Greg Gianforte (R), along with 24 other Republican governors, is urging Biden to divulge the locations of the millions of illegal aliens that have entered American communities since he took office in early 2021.

Friday Afternoon Statistic Dump — Border Patrol Reports Over 7.5 million Illegal Aliens Released into U.S. During Biden Term.  The Dept of Homeland Security, Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) waiting until Friday afternoon to [release] the latest statistics on illegal alien apprehensions at the U.S. southern border.  As a current surge is underway, the August apprehension rate was 304,162, the highest of any month so far on record.  Since Joe Biden took office over 7.5 million illegal aliens have been encountered and released into the United States.  Of that number 5.18 million were single adult males.  This is a wholesale invasion of illegal aliens on a scale never before fathomed.  Joe Biden has created this crisis, and it is getting worse.

Migrants Breach Border, Push Small Children Under Texas Razor Wire.  Texas Department of Public Safety troopers began arresting migrants who breached the razor wire barrier in Eagle Pass, Texas, on Thursday afternoon.  During the breach, Breitbart Texas observed small children being pushed under the wire meant to deter illegal migrant crossings.  Late Thursday morning, migrants staged in Piedras Negras began crossing the Rio Grande in small groups to reach the Texas border in Eagle Pass.  When the groups of migrants arrived, they lined up along the river bank and in the river as they confronted DPS officials and the razor wire border barrier.  Border Patrol agents were not in the vicinity.

Governor Greg Abbott Officially Declares Invasion at Southern Border.  Texas Governor Greg Abbott has declared an "invasion" at the southern border, attributing it to the Mexican drug cartels.  This declaration comes as Governor Abbott takes a firm stance against the escalating security crisis and the influx of criminal activities from across the border.  "I officially declared an invasion at our border because of Biden's policies.  We deployed the Texas National Guard, DPS & local law enforcement.  We are building a border wall, razor wire & marine barriers.  We are also repelling migrants," Governor Abbott announced in a post on Thursday.

'DHS Out to Lunch,' Plans Massive Migrant Releases at Texas Border, Says CBP Source.  According to a source within U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has no cohesive enforcement strategy to address the border incursion of more than 2,500 migrants into one Texas border town on Wednesday.  The source, not authorized to speak to the media, told Breitbart Texas every Border Patrol station in the region is beyond capacity.  The only instructions received from DHS is to quickly process and release the mostly Venezuelan migrants who made landfall in Eagle Pass to a non-government shelter.  Breitbart Texas posted in Piedras Negras, Coahuila, Mexico, on Wednesday morning and watched as the more than 2,500 migrants moved through the city streets headed to the Rio Grande to begin the border crossing.  Piedras Negras is the city directly across the border from Eagle Pass, Texas, a city of 30,000 residents.  Some migrants carried children on their shoulders and the few belongings they possessed while they moved to surrender to federal and state authorities waiting in Eagle Pass.  Many were single adult migrants.

Our Self-Induced Catastrophe at the Border.  Since early 2021 we have witnessed somewhere between 7 and 8 million illegal entries across the now nonexistent U.S. southern border.  The more the border vanished, the more federal immigration law was rendered inert, and the more Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas spun fantasies that the "border is secure."  He is now written off as a veritable "Baghdad Bob" propagandist.  But how and why did the Biden administration destroy immigration law as we knew it?  The Trump administration's initial efforts to close the border had been continually obstructed in the Congress, sabotaged by the administrative state, and stymied in the courts.  Nonetheless, it had finally secured the border by early 2020. Yet almost all its successful initiatives were immediately overturned in 2021.  The wall was abruptly stopped, its projected trajectory cancelled.  The Obama-era disastrous "catch-and release" policy of immigration non-enforcement was resurrected.

It's No Accident The Southern Border Is Collapsing, It's Intentional.  A clip of comedian Louis C.K. on the Joe Rogan show has been circulating on X (formerly Twitter) this week in which he goes on and on about how opening up the southern border would be a good thing because Americans shouldn't have such a high standard of living compared to the rest of the world, how poor people in other countries just want what Americans have, and how it's not fair that we have so much. "It shouldn't be so great here," he says.  So open the border and let them pour in.  It's possible he's joking, that it's just a comedy bit he's practicing.  That's what my friend Inez Stepman thinks.  Get liberals to nod along in agreement and then expose the consequences of such an insane idea.  You can judge for yourself:  [Tweet with video clip]  I don't think it comes off as a joke but as an almost perfect distillation of globalist liberalism.  Louis C.K. cannot fathom why Americans should have a say about who comes into their country and who does not.  He clearly has no real allegiance to his country or countrymen, and is actually embarrassed by their prosperity — and presumably his own as well.

Who are all these thousands of unvetted Venezuelan migrants marching into Eagle Pass?  [Tweet with video clip]  They are all single young men, marching in single file, the way people do who are certain they will not be cheated, so no need to rush, and one of them says, in response to apparently a Border Patrol-shouted question, "We are fleeing a dictatorship."  He'd get arguments from Venezuela apologists Reps.  Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar about that, but no arguments from them about their "right" to claim asylum here.  The situation is getting bad, with 9,000 or 10,000 people, mostly Venezuelans, crossing into Eagle Pass.  It's so bad normal border traffic has been halted, leaving the people who properly use the border for trade and work without a means of getting to work and getting paid.  Supply chains, in other words, are disrupted, based on the Biden administration's priority to "process" the incoming migrants instead.

Hundreds of African migrants sneak into the US in broad daylight.  Baba, a mechanic from the West African nation of Mauritania threw himself to the ground and prayed seconds after squeezing through the steel fence at the Mexican border in Arizona.  'Joe Biden opened the door for us,' he gleefully yelled as dusk fell and the migrants waited to be picked up and processed by U.S. authorities.  'I wanted to come here to be free.  You cannot put a price on freedom,' added Baba, one of an increasing number of migrants from several African countries who are now joining the influx along the southern border.

Biden Border Crisis:  Video Shows Largest Illegal Crossing in Texas, Illegal Immigrants Scaling the Wall in Arizona.  Eagle Pass, TX, is a popular spot for people to cross the border.  Melugin and other reporters often witness the crossings.  A 10-year-old boy drowned last week as he attempted to cross into the town.  On Monday, Melugin released a drone recording and another from a source in Mexico of the largest mass illegal immigrant crossing at the border.  [Tweet with several video clips]

New York Times:  Colombia to Send 1 Million More Global Migrants in 2024.  One million economic migrants from around the world will exit Columbia for the United States in 2024, says the leftist president of Columbia, Gustavo Petro.  Colombia will not interfere with the huge flow out of Colombia, across Panama's Darien Gap, through Mexico, and up to the U.S. border, Petro told the New York Times: [...][ One million more Darien Gap migrants in 2024 would be in addition to the huge illegal migrant flow from Central American countries.  Colombia's illegal inflow, plus the huge legal inflow of one million legal immigrants and one million supposedly temporary workers, would deliver roughly one migrant for every birth in the United States.  That massive inflow would accelerate the elite-pushed demographic replacement within Americans' homeland.

Border Patrol Separated Immigrant Families This Summer, A Practice Biden Once Called 'Abhorrent'.  New court documents claim that Border Patrol agents temporarily separated some migrant families this summer, a practice President Joe Biden once called an "abhorrent."  In a Friday court filing, Dr. Paul Wise, a pediatrician tasked with monitoring the conditions and treatment of migrant children in U.S. Customs and Border Protection custody, said that he found children as young as 8 were separated from their parents by the Biden administration.  The separations were done mainly to prevent overcrowding in short-term holding facilities, but Wise warned that they could have a lasting effect on children.  "Interviews with parents and children found that there were minimal or no opportunities for phone contact or direct interaction between parent and child," Wise said in the court filing.  "The separation of families and the lack of interaction while in custody do significant, and potentially lasting, harm to children, particularly younger children."

The Long Journey to Our Mistrust.  Mass Unrestrained Immigration is a tool of the Devil.  Blame Republicans for acquiescing to Democrat's demands for an Open Border.  Invite outsiders in, feed them, house them, and provide medical care, utilities, laundry services, and even phones so that they can encourage others to follow.  Like a star in the sky beckoning all to come, Democrats salivate at all the new voters they'll control one day.  Anyone who believes otherwise is a fool.  If this policy continued for another ten years, at least 25 million more would have come, maybe a lot more.  Who doesn't understand this?  The flow will only diminish when there is no more Free Stuff.  That will see the final looting of America commence by a horde of people simply fighting to stay alive.

Video shows Mexican train reportedly 'bursting' with migrants heading to US southern border.  A Mexican train is transporting dozens of migrants to the U.S. southern border, according to a new report.  Fox News national correspondent Griff Jenkins posted an alarming video of the migrant train on the X social media platform on Sunday afternoon.  Griff captioned the video: "FOX News sources capture a FerroMex train bursting with migrants out of Zacatecas heading to our southern border right now... cheering and clearly not heeding the message: 'do not come."

They're not here to work.
Only 800 of New York's tens of thousands of illegal immigrants have applied for work authorization.  It has been revealed that out of the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have taken over New York City within the past 18 months, less than two percent have applied for work visas.  Democrats at every level of government continue to say that getting more work visas will solve the illegal immigration problem in New York.  AOC and other Democrats staged a press conference outside midtown Manhattan's Roosevelt Hotel on Friday to speak about work authorizations, more federal funding, and the American dream, but they were shouted down by constituents who very clearly want the border closed.  According to New York Post, only 800 adult-aged illegal immigrants have filed the necessary paperwork required to obtain work visas which will allow them to start earning a legal wage.  Data shows that there are roughly 60,000 illegal immigrants currently residing in the Big Apple.

What Happened to the 177,000 Illegal Aliens DHS Lost?  We are not in very good hands when it comes to our homeland security.  DHS Inspector General reports that 177,000 illegal aliens who were released in the U.S. disappeared.  But that's not all.  Out of the 177,000 illegal immigrants released, 54,000 were found to have blank addresses.  The rest either had invalid or nonexistent addresses.  Address forms included 50 different locations, including a Maryland restaurant, a Georgia bus station, a New Jersey car dealership, and an Illinois church.  DHS cannot send an immigration hearing notice to illegal aliens if they do not have a valid address.  In the process of screening illegals to determine if they pose a threat to national security or criminal activity, a valid address is required.  Without it, the illegals cannot be arrested and deported.

Bidenomics Jobs Report: 1.2 Million Native-Born Workers Lost Their Jobs & Were Replaced With 668K Foreign-Born Workers.  Zero Hedge reports that 1.2 million American born workers have been replaced by nearly 700k foreign born workers.  Bidenomics:  America last.  As Biden continues to tout his economy, the data says otherwise.  The July jobs estimate was revised 30,000 lower and the June total was revised a whopping 104,000 lower making it the worst month since December of 2020.  The unemployment rate also jumped to 3.8% in August as tech companies begin layoffs.

The View co-hosts call for migrants arriving in New York City to be 'resettled elsewhere' because America is 'a massive country'.  The Ladies of the View suggested on Friday that migrants should be 'resettled elsewhere' because America is a 'massive country' while discussing their disappointment with Mayor Eric Adams's handling of the crisis faced by New York City.  NYC Mayor Eric Adams warned earlier this week that the 10,000 illegal asylum seekers arriving every month will 'destroy' the city.  It is a stark shift for the mayor, who promised while campaigning that NYC would remain a sanctuary city under an Adams administration, saying in 2021, 'We should protect our immigrants.  Period.'

The Editor says...
[#1] Mexico is a massive country, too.  [#2] Why do illegal immigrants deserve the mayor's "protection" from the moment they arrive?  They should all be deported.

An Eyewitness on the Border.  I've reported on the Arizona-Mexico border for a long time, and recently published a novel about a ranching family battling a drug cartel trying to take over their ranch.  But for on-the-ground grit and realism, it's hard to match the account of a Border Patrol agent who works the line every day.  Early last month, a friend began sending me emails written by an agent who risks losing his job if his identity becomes public.  But what this whistleblower sees every day is endangering the country he loves, and he has to speak out.

House committee says Mayorkas 'enriched the cartels' after second phase of Republican-led investigation.  The House Homeland Security Committee released the findings of the second part of their probe Thursday into Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, finding he "enriched the cartels," according to a copy of the report obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation.  Under Mayorkas' leadership as DHS secretary, cartels have gained more control over the southern border and smuggled more individuals and contraband across it, according to the report.  The first phase of House Homeland Security Chairman Mark Green's probe focused on Mayorkas' alleged "dereliction" of his duty as secretary of DHS.  Cartel smuggling of illegal migrants has become a billion-dollar industry as illegal immigration has surged, The New York Times reported in 2022.  Border Patrol recorded a record of more than 2.2 million illegal migrant encounters along the southern border in fiscal year 2022, according to federal data.

Biden adminstration considering plan to force migrants to remain in Texas: report.  The Biden administration is considering forcing migrants who cross into the United States illegally to remain in Texas while they wait out their asylum screening.  Administration officials cite the proposed plan as a way to curb the flow of illegal immigrants at the southern border, The Los Angeles Times reported, citing three U.S. officials not authorized to discuss the matter.  The plan would force migrants to remain in Texas, or possibly other border states by tracking their location through GPS monitoring devices, such as ankle bracelets, the officials told the Times.

The Editor says...
If he can force them to remain in Texas, why can't he force them to remain in Mexico?

The Veil of National Security.  There is no national security.  One cannot have national security with an open border and unvetted entrants.  It's as simple as that.  What we do have is national secrets kept from the people for no other reason than to protect the usurpers and treasonous from the consequences of their actions.  Part of this is accomplished from hiding the facts from the people, the other part is accomplished by arresting those who discover the hidden facts.  The point is, if the government didn't have so much to hide from the people, especially their illegal activity, there would be very little that would have to be kept secret.  But, today, almost everything that points to government corruption is hidden behind the veil of national security.  If this were a proper republic, with laws and stuff like that, where individuals had rights to privacy and the government didn't, as intended, it would be a much different place and it might prosper.  But in the corrupt world the treasonous have created out of the shell of the republic, it cannot.  Prosperity is the first casualty of tyranny.

Biden Launches Nationwide Workforce Initiative — for Illegal Aliens.  President Joe Biden's Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has launched a nationwide workforce initiative that seeks to funnel millions of border crossers and illegal aliens into United States jobs — even as the labor force participation rate for Americans continues to decline.  On Wednesday, Biden's DHS announced "a first-of-its-kind national campaign" to make millions of border crossers and illegal aliens, who have been released into the U.S. interior, aware that they are eligible for work permits to take American jobs.

1.2 Million US-born workers lost their jobs last month, replaced by 688,000 foreign-born staff.  Staggering figures have revealed that over 1.2 million US-born workers lost their jobs last month while the foreign-born workforce increased by nearly 700,000, as migrants continue to flood across the border under the Biden administration.  Data from US Bureau of Labor Statistics show that between July and August, there was a staggering decrease of 1.223 million native-born people in the workforce, which is a low not beaten since the jobs crash when Covid hit in April 2020.  In stark contrast almost 688,000 jobs were secured by foreign-born workers, underlining the difference in Joe Biden's pro-migration policies versus Donald Trump's tough border stance.

What the Left Did to Our Country.  Biden destroyed the southern border — literally.  Eight million entered illegally — no background checks, no green cards, no proof of vaccinations.  America will be dealing with the consequences for decades.  Mexico was delighted, receiving some $60 million in annual remittances, while the cartels were empowered to ship enough fentanyl to kill 100,000 Americans a year.

The Biden administration has effectively outsourced U.S. immigration to the Mexican cartels.  [Video clip]  The video above features Robert F. Kennedy Jr.'s mini-documentary "Midnight At the Border," in which he travels to the U.S.-Mexico border in Yuma, Arizona, to investigate the illegal immigration issue firsthand. [...] A major take-home from Kennedy's exposé of the border crisis is that the Biden administration has effectively outsourced U.S. immigration to the cartels.  Several cartels are in fact now fighting for supremacy.  According to Jonathan Lines, Yuma County, Arizona, supervisor for District 2, there have been 300 assassinations in the past 18 months, as the cartels fight for control of the human trafficking business.  On the night that Kennedy visited Yuma, some 150 people from all over the world crossed the border.  And, as noted by Lines, that's a new phenomenon.  In the past, most of the border-jumpers came from Mexico and South America.  Now, most of those entering the U.S. illegally are from China, Africa and Eastern Europe.  People are also coming from Russia, Syria, Ukraine, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Bangladesh.  They've heard there's no border control, so they make their way to Mexico first, and then cross over from there.

Record numbers of families streamed across U.S border illegally in August.  US Border Patrol has arrested at least 91,000 migrants who crossed the overflowing border as part of family groups in August — as detainments rose by 30 percent for two consecutive months.  For the first time during Joe Biden's presidency, families were the biggest demographic moving across the US-Mexico border — surpassing single adults.  The influx follows his rolling out of new restrictions to slow down illegal crossings.  This is more than the previous one-month record of 84,486 set in May 2019, which occurred during Donald Trump's tenure, Washington Post reports.

CBP demoted whistleblowers who revealed 'decade-long failure' to collect criminal DNA :docs.  US Customs and Border Protection retaliated for years against three whistleblowers who called out its failure to collect DNA from millions of detainees, allowing some violent criminals to evade justice for decades, a federal investigation found.  Fred Wynn, Mike Taylor and Mark Jones faced professional and financial consequences for spotlighting their agency's refusal to comply with federal law enforcement rules for DNA collection on criminal arrestees since 2009, according to the US Office of Special Counsel (OSC).

Who knew that ISIS would try to take advantage of an open border?  [Scroll down]  What would a responsible president do?  First, he would close the border and let the system digest the ones already here.  The mayor of New York City might support that.  He could use a break from the buses.  Second, he would assure the country that further steps would be implemented to keep out criminals or security threats.  This is consistent with the oath that he took when he assumed the position.  Third, why aren't we talking to Mexico about this?  It's hard for me to believe that Mexico cannot stop this in a heartbeat.  Or maybe they can't and that would call for unilateral action against the criminal elements profiting from the human traffic.

New York is bankrupting itself with migrant shelters.  Unless you're a local, you may have never heard of Randall's Island in New York City.  It typically doesn't generate a lot of headlines, but it will soon.  It's a nice, small island located between the East River and the Harlem River and it has public parks, sports fields, and several other amenities.  But now there are massive metallic structures being constructed there where as many as 2,000 illegal migrants will be housed, courtesy of the taxpayers of the state.  Governor Kathy Hochul has secured funding to provide $20 million per month to cover the cost of the shelter.  That works out to $10,000 per month for every migrant being given a bed there.  And the locals can forget about using the parks and the sports fields.

NYPD ramps up security at Staten Island migrant shelter as protests rock neighborhood.  Cop cars and barricades surrounded a controversial Staten Island Catholic school-turned-migrant-shelter Sunday — as police said they are bracing for a rally Monday that could bring more than 2,000 protesters.  Many demonstrators outside the former St. John Villa Academy in Arrochar have claimed they are not anti-immigrant, just concerned about the potential for crime and angry at city officials for shipping migrants into their neighborhood with little warning.  "The government has to stop doing this to our communities in secret and stop lying about it when they're confronted," said Scott Herkert, 53, who has lived next to the school for 22 years and was among about a dozen demonstrators outside it Sunday.  "This is a total disruption of my life."

Eric Adams and Kathy Hochul [are] still clueless about the ongoing migrant crisis rocking NYC.  For several years, news reports have chronicled how tens of thousands of wealthy and middle-class families have been fleeing New York City and state for less expensive and safer destinations.  More recently, news reports have chronicled how more than 100,000 illegal immigrants who crossed the southern border and claimed asylum have come to the city, with 60,000 of them living free of charge in publicly-funded hotels and shelters.  The sheer numbers are swamping the bureaucracy and budget and riling inundated neighborhoods.  Seen in relation to each other, the waves of departures and arrivals illustrate a rapid shift in the city's population and tax base.  They also sound a warning that Gotham's already-serious decline in public safety and order is likely to accelerate.

Biden, it's you.  My guess is that Governor Hochul is in a no-win situation.  She knows that the problem lives at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, who opened the border.  At the same time, she has to keep the liberal wing of the party happy, or the same people who support this insane policy.  Mayor Adams is in the middle of this mess.  His hands are tied, and the Abbott Bus Lines keep dropping off passengers.  The key word in the article is "totally unsustainable," or the reality that a state losing taxpayers can't afford to spend more money.  In other words, every dollar that goes to migrants comes from another state or city program.  The other reality is that there is no money coming from Washington.  The House won't pass such an expenditure, and there are not 60 votes in the U.S. Senate.

Gov. Kathy Hochul Announces Jobs Program for Illegal Aliens as 380K New Yorkers are Unemployed.  New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has announced a jobs program for tens of thousands of border crossers and illegal aliens who are arriving in the sanctuary state every week, even as about 380,000 New Yorkers are unemployed.  As more than 100,000 border crossers and illegal aliens have arrived in New York, mostly in New York City, since the spring of last year, Hochul has pleaded with President Joe Biden not to stem the flow of illegal immigration but to more easily provide new arrivals with work permits.

Abbott Sends 10th Bus Full of Illegal Migrants to Los Angeles.  As President Joe Biden's open border continues to wreak havoc on the United States, one Democratic city is suffering the consequences.  Over the weekend, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) sent its tenth bus full of illegal migrants to Los Angeles just days after its mayor criticized the border state for sending migrants.  Democrat Mayor Karen Bass got a rude awakening when a bus of 39 illegal migrants showed up on her doorstep.  The bus, which included 12 families and 21 children, was sent five days after Abbott sent the ninth shipment to the liberal city during Tropical Storm Hillary.

By "refugees" they mean illegal aliens.
Justice Department sues SpaceX for not hiring refugees.  SpaceX hires American citizens and people with Green Cards but doesn't hire asylum seekers and refugees.  This seems rational and actually mirrors a policy practiced by NASA. Both do a lot of national security work and it makes sense to restrict the pool of applicants.  It is hardly unduly burdensome.  The United States is a big country and it is no tragedy that SpaceX has restricted its hiring to permanent residents of the country.  [Tweet]  Now it is true that not all SpaceX jobs are high-security positions, but it is difficult to see why the Justice Department is putting a laser focus on SpaceX's hiring practices for its baristas and demanding that the company identify every non-citizen and asylee who ever applied to SpaceX and pay them back pay for not being hired.

It is not the proper role of government to create or locate jobs for illegal aliens.

Welcome migrants, bye-bye property rights.  Anti-borders politicians have created a migrant crisis all over the United States.  Despite proudly proclaiming themselves to be "sanctuary cities" that refuse to cooperate with federal immigration enforcement efforts, places like New York City and Boston have proven themselves to be profoundly inept at managing the large numbers of migrants who have responded to their invitation.  What are radical, globalist mayors and lieutenant governors to do when they find themselves with egg on their faces?  They expect regular Janes and Joes to clean up their mess.  In June of this year, New York City Mayor Eric Adams asked everyday New Yorkers to consider housing migrants in spare rooms in their private residences.  More recently, Commonwealth of Massachusetts Lieutenant Governor Kim Driscoll jumped on the bandwagon and appealed to Bay State residents to "host" migrants in "an extra room or suite."  The Big Apple and Beantown are two of the most expensive cities in the United States.  And they have both been whining about housing crises for years.

Our Upside-Down Immigration System Rolls Out The Red Carpet For Illegals While Booting Skilled Workers.  Three machine-gun-toting cartel members waltzed across the Tex-Mex frontier, near Eagle Pass, on August 5. The Border Patrol chased them, but they got away.  These thugs are armed, deadly, and could be plotting evil, anywhere in America.  Some 200 illegal aliens stormed the border crossing at Brownsville, Texas, on August 8.  Rather than wait patiently, they swamped Border Patrol officers, breached the checkpoint, and dashed into the interior.  Who are they?  Where are they?  Who knows?  Over 100,000 illegal aliens have overpowered New York City since last spring.  They clog the sidewalks outside and rooms inside the previously venerable Roosevelt Hotel, where bandleader Guy Lombardo and his Royal Canadians dazzled radio listeners with "Auld Lang Syne" on many New Year's Eves.  Democrat Mayor Eric Adams has converted soccer fields on Randall's Island (in the East River) into a giant shelter for 2,000 illegals.  Taxpayers starved for recreation and teenagers seeking team sports, rather than trouble, are out of luck.

Illegals [are] shocked how easy it is to come over [the] border.  The Biden regime's immigration policies are so ineffective at stopping the flood of illegal aliens that even the new arrivals are shocked over how easy it is to cross over into the United States.  Thousands of northbound migrants are pouring across the border in southern Arizona on a daily basis, walking unmolested through massive floodgates near the Tucson border post that have been left wide open during the monsoon season and to facilitate migration for an endangered antelope species.  Stunning video footage obtained by the New York Post shows the illegals just casually walking through the gates at a location that has become "the busiest point of illegal entry into the country," according to the outlet.  [Video clip]

Report: Biden Admin Welds Arizona Border Wall Gates Open.  A media report revealed that Biden administration officials welded border wall gates open near Lukeville, Arizona.  The open gates allow migrants to freely walk through the border wall and into the Arizona desert.  Border Patrol officials admitted responsibility for a decision to weld open flood gates in sections of border wall near Lukeville, the New York Post reported.  The admission reportedly came after the agency attempted to blame other federal agencies for the action that allows thousands of migrants to freely cross into what is now the nation's busiest border sector.

Biden is Doing Everything Possible to Open Up the Border.  The Biden administration and its media allies keep acting as if the massive southern border invasion is something out of their control.  In reality, the administration has done everything possible to keep the border open.  The Biden administration has fought any state efforts at securing the border.  Its EPA sued Arizona to dismantle a wall of shipping containers being used to keep out some of the alien invaders.  Its DOJ sued Texas over floating barriers on the Rio Grande.  The common theme was to not only open the border as wide as possible to accommodate the invaders, but to suppress any efforts by states to secure their borders on their own.  Now it's actively selling off parts of the border wall so they can never be used again.

Historic LA hotel devolves into housing projects, repairs cost taxpayers more than $11.5 million.  Built in 1926, The Mayfair Hotel in downtown Los Angeles was a historical treasure, a unique marriage between the glamor of Old Hollywood and the elan of the Roaring Twenties, and then California Democrats got ahold of it.  The Mayfair once hosted the first ever Academy Awards after-party, but now it houses Skid Row. [...] (How could anyone think inviting drug-addled derelicts into a luxury hotel wouldn't end up this way?)  Like stereotypical crazy bums, the transients housed at the Mayfair "punched through walls," trashed appliances and bathrooms, smashed windows to throw objects onto the street below, and left fentanyl-covered tinfoil sheets strewn about.  And, in predictable fashion, the idiotic decisions of the left aren't limited to only affecting leftists, and the havoc spilled out onto the street.

A horrific story from Mexico tells you what Biden is bringing to America.  Since the day he came into office, Biden has opened America's southern border, an illegal act that should see him not only impeached but indicted and imprisoned.  But that's not the world in which we live.  We live in a world in which millions of illegal aliens stream into America, a substantial number of whom are Mexican cartel foot soldiers.  That's why you should know about the horrible deaths that five childhood friends suffered at the hands of the cartel in Jalisco, Mexico.  Between the third-world-style indictments against Trump and the trickle of information about Biden's epic, anti-American corruption, we're not hearing a lot about what's happening along our southern border.  However, even though the border is headline news, whether under the MSM's slobbery version of pathetic third-worlders in crisis or the actual story of a nation that's being invaded, the border continues to be an issue.

Biden's Spreading Illegal Immigration Crisis.  President Biden created the border crisis.  The president and his incompetent Secretary of Homeland Security, Alejandro N. Mayorkas, have utterly failed to carry out the executive branch's constitutional responsibility to faithfully execute the immigration laws.  In addition to not securing the border adequately in the first place, the Biden administration has made catch and release its standard policy.  Prodded by the expiration of the Title 42 health emergency expulsion order, the administration scrambled to implement carrot and stick measures intended to redirect immigrants seeking to enter the country to do so through legally permissible channels.  The hodgepodge of measures includes an app allowing migrants to make appointments beforehand for entry into the United States at a U.S. port of entry to apply for asylum.  The app does not work consistently, and Mexican cartel smugglers have already hacked it.  Many migrants have simply bypassed using the app altogether and have entered the country illegally without an appointment.

SUNY Buffalo booting migrants from dorms over student safety concerns, critic rips move as prejudiced.  SUNY Buffalo State University is evicting 44 migrants from its dorms after parents raised concerns over student safety — but an asylum-seeker advocate claims the move smacks of prejudice.  Officials at the state university abruptly canceled an agreement with a local community group that placed dozens of migrants at the upstate school in May — citing parental worries in the wake of separate sex-assault charges against two migrants bused north from New York City, Buffalo News reported.  "As we are welcoming our students back to campus Tuesday, we wanted to ensure the best possible learning environment for our students and smooth functioning of our university operations," interim school President Bonia Durand said in a statement, according to the outlet.

Biden Tries to Sink Gov. Abbott's Border Buoys.  The Biden Administration is taking steps to undermine Texas Gov. Greg Abbott's (R-TX) actions to keep illegal aliens out of the U.S.  The state's top land official called out the Biden Administration's proposed federal protection for two Rio Grande mussel species as a "political" game to stop Abbott from deploying his buoys in the U.S.-Mexico water border.  "Unfortunately, the Biden administration is turning the Endangered Species Act into a political tool to push an agenda rather than ensuring true conservation efforts are implemented," Texas General Land Office Commissioner Dawn Buckingham said in a statement. "This administration is proposing to roll back reasonable improvements made to this law and are simply ignoring the successful accomplishments of private preservationists, state, and local land managers by adding more federal red tape regulations."

Hundreds Of New Yorkers Protest 'Tent City' For 1,000 Illegal Immigrant Men Opening Near Elementary School.  Hundreds of New York City residents gathered in Queens on Wednesday to protest the opening of a shelter that is expected to house around 1,000 illegal immigrant men near an elementary school and senior center.  The protesters held up signs and chanted "no tent city," opposing the move by state officials to house illegal immigrants in the new shelter as hotels and homeless shelters in the Big Apple are overrun with thousands of people who illegally entered the country and were bused to New York.  The tent city, approved by state leaders, opened Tuesday after being set up in 10 days in the parking lot of a psychiatric facility in Queens, Fox 5 reported.  Multiple people were arrested during the protest, including former GOP mayoral candidate Curtis Sliwa, who allegedly refused police orders to get out of the street where he and others were blocking traffic, according to The New York Post.

DHS Mayorkas:  Cubans 'Deserve the Right' to Migrate to U.S..  President Joe Biden's Cuban-born border chief is accelerating his transfer of poor Cuban migrants into Americans' society and the U.S. economy.  "Cubans, like my own family, who nearly 63 years ago fled the communist takeover, deserve the same opportunity to follow legal pathways to build a new life in the United States," said a statement from border chief Alejandro Mayorkas.  The statement announced the opening of a "Field Office" in Havana to help migrants get into the United States via chain migration paperwork, family reunification claims, refugee status, and supposedly "lawful ... pathways."

8 Democrats Who Have Declared States of Emergency Over Border Crisis.  Most elected Democrats across the country have either been silent about or openly promoted the Biden administration's border policies.  But once the effects of those policies were felt at home, putting thousands of illegal aliens in their own backyards, several Democrats have acknowledged there is a problem.  Democratic leaders in Colorado, Illinois, Massachusetts, New York, Texas, and Washington, D.C., have declared states of emergency in response to the border crisis that occurred after President Joe Biden took office.

Biden Asks Congress for Billions to Expand Illegal Migration.  President Joe Biden's deputies are asking the House GOP majority to fund new travel and housing programs for more economic migrants who are being encouraged to take opportunities needed by ordinary Americans.  The August 10 request for $3.3 billion funding "is not all designed to promote more illegal immigration, but most of it seems to be," said Mark Krikorian, director of the Center for Immigration Studies[.]

Dem Govs, Mayors Declared Emergencies After Receiving [a] Trickle Of [the] Southern Border's Migrant Flood.  Even as southern border communities deal with an influx of thousands of migrants each day, Democrat-run cities and states have declared emergencies after a few hundred or thousand migrant arrivals, according to a review of their declarations.  Democratic leaders in Denver, Massachusetts, New York City, Washington, D.C., Chicago and the state of Illinois have all declared emergencies over hundreds to a few thousand migrants arriving to their cities and in their shelters in recent months.  Meanwhile, illegal migrant encounters at the southern border have remained high, according to federal data.  Border Patrol recorded more than 1.2 million illegal migrant encounters in the state of Texas in all of fiscal year 2022, more than 561,000 in Arizona over the same time period, more than 142,000 in New Mexico and roughly 249,000 in California, according to federal data.  Agents have recorded more 1.5 million illegal migrant encounters across the aforementioned southern border states between October 2022 and June.

Video Shows Heaps of Trash, Pills Strewn Across Southern Border by Migrants.  Heaps of trash, clothing, and items such as birth control pills are scattered across the southern border, John Rourke of Blue Line Moving discovered as he went to the Southern border ahead of his annual cleanup, documenting his findings along the way.  Rourke, owner of Blue Line Moving, previously spoke to Breitbart News at the Turning Point Action summit in July, detailing his annual border cleanup, as he heads to the southern border every year on September 11 to clean up trash. "So I have the great American cleanup where I go to border towns, and I pick up trash on every 9/11.  And we raise money and donate it to the sheriff's department for the town in which I clean up," he said, describing his findings as "life-changing."  "There's clothes everywhere, there's trash everywhere.  There's wild animals, dogs that are left behind when they cross the border.  All the border towns have wild dogs all over the place.  It's really an emergency, and I felt like I could help out.  I want to continue to serve.  So that's what I do.  I go on every 9/11.  And I pick up trash for three days," he said, describing what he finds during these cleanups.

Get a clue.  The reason you've got a problem is because of "federal action."
Massachusetts gov declares state of emergency due to surge of migrants, calls for federal action.  Massachusetts Gov. Maura Healey on Tuesday declared a state of emergency in the liberal state over a surge of migrants that she says has left social services overwhelmed, and she called for more funding and help from the federal government.  Healey, a Democrat, announced that a state of emergency exists "due to rapid and unabating increases in the number of families with children and pregnant people — many of them newly arriving migrants and refugees — living within the state but without the means to secure safe shelter in our communities."  The state said there are nearly 5,600 families or more than 20,000 people in the state shelter system.  Healey said there are numerous contributing factors, including "federal policies on immigration and work authorization" as well as a lack of affordable housing and the end of COVID-era programs.

Joe Biden increased pathways for migrants into the U.S. — and created a new border surge.  Once upon a time, New York City's top urban planning strongman, Robert Moses, built highways and bridges across and into New York City, aiming to stop traffic congestion.  Moses is why New York City has the Triborough Bridge, the Brooklyn-Battery Link, Interstate 278, the Cross Bronx Expressway, and many other passageways.  He built them all, and then he built some more.  And as every journalism student, having read Robert Caro's The Power Broker, would know, Moses was astonished.  Instead of less traffic coming into Manhattan from the outer boroughs and beyond — there was more.  Manhattan became more traffic-congested than ever as a result, and lots of neighborhoods were ruined, too, divided and corrupted by the roaring overhead highways.  This curiously corresponds exactly to what we are seeing at the border right now — a new migrant surge, coming in the wake of Joe Biden's expansion of what he claims are new, expanded, legal pathways for illegal immigrants to get into the country solely on their claims to asylum.

Biden admin. removing 1,100 troops from US-Mexico border, official says.  The Pentagon is removing 1,100 active duty military troops from the southern border after deploying additional troops earlier this year in preparation for the end of Title 42 restrictions.  According to The Associated Press, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin approved the military to deploy 1,500 active duty members to the southern border in May for a 90-day period in response to the migration surge that accompanied the end of Title 42 asylum prohibitions.  The 90-day mission will conclude on Aug. 8 for 1,100 active duty troops on the southern border, while 400 remaining troops will stay at the border until the end of August, according to an anonymous defense official.

Open Borders Creating Bidenvilles of Homelessness.  Who Saw That Coming?  A year ago, I wrote about the obvious connection between illegal immigration and homelessness in U.S. cities.  Since then, encounters with inadmissible aliens at the border have remained at more than 150,000 a month, often over 200,000.  Of these, perhaps half are being released into the country, either under the charade of a "removal process" under U.S. immigration law or one of President Joe Biden's many made-up parole-a-palooza programs. [...] New York's dense population and high rents make it harder to hide the homeless than in cities more spread out.  With his city's shelters full, Adams has rented hundreds of hotels and opened dozens of emergency facilities, from churches to parking lots, to house supposed asylum-seekers.  He's even tried to pay private homeowners to put them up.  It'll never be enough, as he now seems to understand.

Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker Signs Law Allowing DACA Illegal Aliens to Police Americans.  Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker (D) has signed into law a plan that allows foreign nationals with work permits, some of whom are illegal aliens, to become police officers in the sanctuary state.  Democrat legislators, with a supermajority in the Illinois House and Senate, passed legislation in June that opens law enforcement jobs to thousands of illegal aliens enrolled in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program as well as thousands of other foreign nationals with work permits from the federal government.

Illegal Aliens with Work Authorization Now Permitted to Become Police Officers in Illinois.  It may be entirely possible in Illinois now for a police officer to demand to see your papers for identity compliance even though that police officer may be an illegal alien who broke U.S. law to enter the United States.  Under a bill recently signed by Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker, illegal aliens can now become police officers.  The downstream ramifications of this effort are not difficult to imagine.  As if the crisis of confidence in the U.S. legal and law enforcement system was not under enough pressure, the reality of lawbreaking foreign nationals and border crossers now controlling law enforcement is a rather remarkable escalation in social fracture.

Mayor Eric Adams Awards Millions to Medical Company to Bus Border Crossers Out of NYC.  New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) has reportedly thrown hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars at a medical company, tasked previously with testing for COVID-19, to bus border crossers and illegal aliens out of the sanctuary city.  Since the spring of last year, more than 90,000 border crossers and illegal aliens have arrived in New York City.  Adams has long criticized Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) for busing migrants to the sanctuary city, but recent reports reveal he has started a nearly identical busing program.

It would have been better if they had stayed in Mexico.  Upon taking office, the Biden administration killed the "stay in Mexico" policy.  They claimed that their approach was more humanitarian but were never forced to explain from "the basement" what that actually meant.  Two years later, we know that it meant opening the border and handing people a court date and hope that they show up for the hearing.  Yesterday, a judge halted another of the Biden administration's ideas.

Texas Has Seized More Than 422 Million Lethal Doses of Fentanyl Since 2021, Governor Says.  Texas officials have seized more than 422 million lethal doses of fentanyl since the launch of the state's Operation Lone Star program in March 2021, governor Greg Abbott announced on Friday.  "Operation Lone Star continues to fill the dangerous gaps created by the Biden Administration's refusal to secure the border," Abbott's office said.  "Every individual who is apprehended or arrested and every ounce of drugs seized would have otherwise made their way into communities across Texas and the nation due to President Joe Biden's open border policies."  Abbott said in a statement that the program has also led to 394,200 illegal-immigrant apprehensions and 31,300 criminal arrests.

Sanctuary State California Gov. Gavin Newsom to Spend $4.5M on Lawyers for Illegal Aliens.  The sanctuary state of California will soon spend $4.5 million on providing free lawyers to illegal aliens working on farms thanks to a plan by Gov. Gavin Newsom (D).  Newsom announced the pilot program this week, which will see $4.5 million in state taxpayer money shifted to lawyers who are helping illegal alien farmworkers involved in labor investigations.  "This new program includes case review services, legal advice, and representation by an attorney — all at no cost to farmworkers seeking assistance," a press release states of the pilot program.

Fifth bus of illegal aliens arrives in Los Angeles from Texas.  Two more migrant buses arrived in Los Angeles Saturday from Texas.  Governor Abbott seems to be accelerating the free transportation provided to illegal aliens detained in Texas to sanctuary cities across the country.  Los Angeles is the focus now.  Previous bus trips transporting illegal aliens to other cities include Washington, D.C., New York City, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Denver.  Governor Abbott said he will not quit offering them a free ride to cities outside of Texas as long as the southern border is porous and not being secured by the federal government.  The buses transfer small groups of people so the sanctuary cities are not overwhelmed like Texas border communities are.  On Saturday, two buses arrived at Union Station with 48 migrants aboard.  That number includes 18 minors.

41 Percent Of Illegal Immigrant Group Biden Admin Released Into US Never Showed Up For Court Dates.  The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE) has yet to issue court summons for about 82 percent of the illegal immigrants it allowed into the United States after a federal court ordered a halt on a Biden administration immigration parole program.  In May, Judge T. Kent Wetherell II of Florida's Northern federal court district issued a temporary restraining order (TRO), blocking the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) from releasing noncitizens into the United States through the Biden administration's "Parole with Conditions" (PWC) policy.  The PWC policy allowed for illegal immigrants to be paroled into the United States under the expectation that they'd check in with ICE within 60 days and receive a Notice to Appear (NTA), which would initiate court proceedings for them to be removed from the United States.

NYC Posts Fliers at Southern Border Discouraging Illegal Immigrants from Coming to City.  New York City has begun distributing English and Spanish fliers at the southern border warning asylum seekers that there is "there is no guarantee we will be able to provide shelter and services to new arrivals."  NYC Mayor Eric Adams explained the policy on Wednesday by noting simply that "We have no more room in the city."  Roughly 55,000 migrants are currently under the City's care.  Add the homeless population, and the total number of people currently sheltered in city jumps past 105,000.  Adams also announced policy changes designed to make space for families with children in NYC housing.  The city will now require single adult migrants to reapply for housing after 60 days.

First of all, they aren't "asylum seekers," they're welfare seekers.
Mayor Eric Adams says New York City no longer has room to shelter asylum seekers.  There are new developments in New York City's struggle to house recently arrived asylum seekers.  Mayor Eric Adams said Wednesday the city has been carrying the weight of the nation's crisis and now there is no longer space for new people coming in, citing the absence of state or federal aid.  He said he has put a plan in place that will begin in the next couple of days to help move current migrants out of shelters to make space for families arriving with children.

Really?  How many have been invited to live in the Governor's house?
Massachusetts Calls on Residents to Take Border Crossers into Their Homes.  Massachusetts officials are now asking residents to take border crossers and illegal aliens into their homes as illegal immigration continues adding to the state's homeless population.  Gov. Maura Healey (D) is calling on residents with empty bedrooms in their homes and apartments to consider taking in border crossers and illegal aliens, WBUR reports: [...] Healey's wanting to house border crossers and illegal aliens in residents' private homes comes as the state is paying for nearly 40 hotels and motels across the state to house new arrivals — at taxpayers' expense.  As Boston Herald columnist Howie Carr noted, Healey has not sent border crossers and illegal aliens to nearly any of the "millionaire destinations" in Massachusetts — like Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard, Cambridge, or Newburyport.

Key findings about U.S. immigrants.  The U.S. foreign-born population reached a record 44.8 million in 2018.  Since 1965, when U.S. immigration laws replaced a national quota system, the number of immigrants living in the U.S. has more than quadrupled.  Immigrants today account for 13.7% of the U.S. population, nearly triple the share (4.8%) in 1970.

The bizarre daily struggle between Texas DPS and Border Patrol pits agencies against each other.  There is a daily struggle going on along the Rio Grande River but it may not be the one you are thinking about.  It's not the usual struggle between Border Patrol agents and migrants crossing the border illegally.  It a battle between the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) and Border Patrol.  Illegal immigration is a federal responsibility.  However, we know that Joe Biden and DHS Secretary Mayorkas have created a border crisis that this country has never seen before, thanks to the administration's neglect.  Millions of illegal aliens are living in the United States now that were not before Joe Biden was inaugurated.  Border states have been left to fend for themselves.  Biden refuses to close the border so it is up to border states to manage the crisis.  Texas taxpayers, for example, are on the hook to the tune of several billion dollars to provide the migrants with the services they need and for the state to secure the border.  Those services include shelter, food, medical care, and school for children.

French riots show the future of Joe Biden's America.  Over the past few weeks, France has been engulfed in riots after a 17-year-old boy was shot and killed by a police officer during a traffic stop.  The rioting and looting have largely been centered in communities with many migrants from North African and Islamic nations.  The rioting has caused more than one billion dollars in property damage, and has led to thousands of arrests.  It has also led to a renewed debate in Europe about the costs of mass migration and whether or not those costs are worth it.  It's not just the U.S. that has experienced an influx of foreign nationals in recent years.  France took in a record number of migrants in 2022, both legal and illegal. [...] The crassness of these migrants certainly isn't representative of everybody seeking to come from the third world to prosperous western nations, but it is indicative of a larger problem with mass immigration.  Many of these foreign nationals come from countries where violence and chaos has been normalized, and the importation of migrants from these types of countries can also serve to normalize the same type of disorder in their new countries.

Democrats in Massachusetts Look to Give Voting Rights to Foreign Nationals.  Democrat legislators in Massachusetts are looking to give foreign nationals on green cards the right to vote in municipal elections.  A series of bills filed by Democrat legislators in the Massachusetts House and Senate would open municipal voting rights to foreign nationals living in the state on green cards.  In practice, the policy would mean foreign nationals could cast deciding votes in Massachusetts towns and cities for mayor, school committee, city council, town council, board of selectmen, select board elections, school committee referendums, local ballot referendums, or other municipal races.

The Editor says...
In a few years, when everybody has accepted this terrible idea, there will be a tiny little incremental change to allow illegal aliens to vote in every election.  By the time the Supreme Court hears about it, the damage will have been done already.

DHS Chief Mayorkas Ignores Request to Disclose How Many Illegals Have Been Freed into U.S..  President Joe Biden's Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary, Alejandro Mayorkas, is ignoring a request from Republicans on the House Oversight Committee to disclose the number of illegal aliens the agency has released directly into American communities through its massive parole pipeline.  As Breitbart News reported, late last month, Republicans on the House Oversight Committee, led by Reps.  James Comer (R-KY) and Glenn Grothman (R-WI), asked Mayorkas to provide a total numerical accounting of illegal aliens DHS has released into the United States interior through the administration's expansive parole pipeline.

Liberals' 'Solutions' for Illegal Immigration [and] Shoplifting Only Make Matters Worse.  The Biden administration wants increased and easier immigration.  While most Americans support reasonable legal immigration, they reject unlimited numbers via open borders.  Last year, a majority of Americans polled thought there was an "invasion" on the border.  U.S. immigration process was built in layers of law over decades.  Reforming it is hard.  Reaching consensus is rare.  Neither those favoring restriction nor those favoring expansion are ever satisfied.  Past presidential administrations did the best they could, mostly enforcing the law, but occasionally inventing legally dubious programs like family-reunification parole for Cubans (2007) and Haitians (2014) or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (2012).  But for President Joe Biden, restraint is a dirty word.  Not content merely to release inadmissible border crossers pending far-off court dates, the administration has ignored the law and invented an entire parallel migration system, a sort of Upside Down of what they call "lawful pathways" to let people in on parole.

House Republicans Call for Defunding Mayorkas's Salary Over Border Crisis.  House Republicans are contemplating legislation that would eliminate Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas's salary in response to mistrust over the failure to enforce the U.S. southern border.  Republican legislators are now insisting that Mr. Mayorkas's salary be part of the impending government funding dispute.  Among those Republicans is Rep. Nancy Mace (R-S.C.), who said in a July 11 statement, confirmed by her office to The Epoch Times, that the House's majority party was ready for Biden administration cabinet members to "do their jobs."  "People are sick of inaction against elected officials who betray their oath and refuse to do their jobs.  Congress is given the power of the purse by the Constitution, and if the president's Cabinet secretaries won't do their jobs, we should consider using any tool, including the Holman Rule, to defund them and their ability to do further damage," Ms. Mace said.

Illegal Immigration and Western Spiritual Sickness.  The usual suspects have weighed in on recent belated efforts to enforce U.S. immigration laws.  Our now bankrupt media, the corrupt government of Mexico, and the Diversity/Equity/Inclusion apparat have damned a series of laws recently passed by the Florida legislature and signed by Governor Ron DeSantis that enforce existing federal immigration laws.  Such critics seem oblivious to the current violence that is paralyzing Europe in general, and in particular France — as if such European chaos offers no lessons for the U.S. or any other salad-bowl, open-borders Western nation.  Florida decided no longer to provide de facto and illegal exemptions to foreign nationals who entered and now reside in the state illegally. [...] No one is now arguing that Florida is breaking any laws by enforcing them.  Again, the outrage is instead over the state's legal adherence to the law.  No one privately believes the illegal aliens affected by the new enforcement are euphemistically merely "undocumented migrants."  In truth, illegal aliens never sought nor possessed nor intended to possess immigration "documents" in the first place, although millions of would-be law-abiding immigrants easily do just that.  Instead, they have shown contempt for U.S. laws and those who made and enforced them.  So "illegal alien" is precisely the correct term.

Who is paying for all these illegal aliens?  Entering the USA improperly is a crime.  The first illegal entry is a misdemeanor; any subsequent entry is a felony.  Every illegal alien becomes a criminal simply by entering the country.  The ideological left is crowing that the administration scored a "victory" in United States v. Texas.  On June 23, the Supreme Court stated that the administration can set priorities when deciding which illegal aliens to prosecute.  But the Court also issued an opinion in United States v. Hansen.  That is a more interesting opinion — not that this administration has any intention of abiding by it.  Side note:  Before anyone objects to the term "alien," that is the word Congress uses in the Immigration and Nationality Act — officially Title 8, Aliens and Nationality, of the U.S. Code.  The word "alien" appears in Title 8 more than a thousand times; the phrase "illegal alien" 32 times.  When Congress changes its terminology, I will consider changing mine.

Why Are Georgia Republican Legislators Proposing In-State Tuition For Illegal Aliens?  This week Breitbart reported on the group of four Georgia Republican House members who, along with two democrats Tran (D) and Marin (D), are pushing HB 131.  The bill is positioned as a "Workforce" bill, which sounds like a nice thing.  However opponents ask why, with limited space in college classes, we would consider making it more difficult and perhaps more expensive for a U.S. citizen to attend these Colleges, while incenting non-U.S. citizens to take the seats at potentially lower cost.  Another factor would be the additional illegal aliens such a move could draw into Georgia to take advantage of such a law.

Biden administration increases the number of migrants allowed into the U.S. to claim asylum each day using CBP One mobile app.  US Customs and Border Protection is again expanding the number of migrants it allows into the US at the Mexico border via its CBP One mobile app.  The federal agency said it will now allow 1,450 migrants to book appointments each day via the app, which enables migrants to register asylum claims and enter the US.  Asylum seekers that show up at the border without having secured an appointment are subject to a 'common-sense condition' and will likely will be turned away.

The Editor says...
Nonsense.  How many illegal aliens are "turned away" at the border?  I'm guessing the number is somewhere near zero.

Analysis: Biden's 'Got-Away Tsunami' Imports Illegal Alien Population the Size of Philadelphia.  In less than three years, President Joe Biden's "got-away tsunami" has imported an illegal alien population the size of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, a new analysis detailed.  From Fiscal Year 2021 to April 2023, less than three full fiscal years, Biden's policies at the United States-Mexico border have allowed more than 1.5 million illegal aliens to successfully cross into the nation's interior undeterred by federal officials.  The massive "got-away tsunami," as detailed by Andrew Arthur of the Center for Immigration Studies, is triple the got-away inflow that occurred under former President Trump from Fiscal Year 2017 to Fiscal Year 2020 when there were about 521,000 illegal alien got-aways.

Biden's Feds Cut Through Razor Wire Placed By Texas Authorities To Let Illegals Into U.S..  U.S. Border Patrol agents allegedly cut through razor wire placed by Texas law enforcement officials on the southern to let illegal aliens enter the country, according to new video.  Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin shared a video on Twitter of the incident, which he said occured on private property, according to officials with the Texas Department of Public Safety.  "Video from source in Eagle Pass shows Border Patrol cutting through razor wire placed by the state of TX to allow migrants to enter & be processed after crossing illegally," Melugin said.  "[The Texas Department of Public Safety] tells me this is the first time they know of this happening, and that it's being looked into for potential destruction of TX property."  "The federal government's position is that once migrants are on U.S. soil, under U.S. law, they need to be processed, and cannot be repelled or turned away," he continued.

NYC Milestone: Migrants Outnumber New Yorkers in Homeless Shelters.  New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) has brought the city to a new milestone with border crossers and illegal aliens now outnumbering New Yorkers in homeless shelters.  According to NBC New York, the city's homeless shelters are filled more with newly arrived border crossers and illegal aliens than New Yorkers, the latest figures reveal.  "The tipping point took place Sunday, when 50,000 migrants were in the City's care, outnumbering the 49,700 local shelter residents," NBC New York reports[.]

Declare War on the Mexican Cartels Now.  Communist China has been conducting a hybrid war against its main enemy, the United States of America, for years.  There are multiple fronts in that war, including economic warfare, diplomatic intimidation ("wolf warriors"), espionage, elite capture, suborning international institutions (the World Health Organization), social media (TikTok cultural warfare), etc.  A key front that is frequently overlooked — and downplayed — by the Biden administration is the flood of China-sourced fentanyl and other opiates into the US.

What the Left Has Left for America.  The southern border is a mere construct created by fascists to exclude the Other.  Its removal fast tracks a new demography, dependent on leftist largess and eager to reciprocate with loyalty at the polls.  The triumphalism of the slogans touting a "New Democratic Majority" and "Demography is Destiny" sanctifies the reality that citizenship is defunct and mere residency has replaced it with all its former rights, but none of its erstwhile responsibilities.

The Cartels are allied with Corporate Fascists, Greens, the Hard Left and the CCP.  The city of Vancouver was built by serious Christians, who believed in, as first principle, service to others.  They built the city to take in the dispossessed, to lift up humanity, to spread peace. [...] It is now a cesspit of crime, drugs, human trafficking, child sex and money laundering.  We launder most of the drug money in North America.  The city has been taken over by a consortium of cartels, Asian and Mexican, who own through their funding of a proliferation of social justice activist groups, members of the city council, the judiciary, as well as members of the provincial and federal government, particularly those in immigration who rubber stamp the papers of the worst criminals from across the Asian world.  They are all here now.  The pickings are just too good.  You are next on their list.

No, the border crisis hasn't abated.  Following the end of Title 42 last month, the predicted increase in illegal border crossings from their already ridiculous levels never fully materialized.  And for a time, there was even a dip in the numbers.  This left the administration "crowing" over the reports.  The administration's plan was "working as intended," we were told.  It was a "major victory" for the White House in the face of MAGA "misinformation" about how bad things were on the southern border.  And most of the legacy media ate up these tales.  But a closer look at the actual data tells a very different story.

Nearly 17 Million Illegal Aliens in the United States Cost Americans $163 Billion Annually.  The nation's illegal alien population has hit nearly 17 million, an increase of more than two million since President Joe Biden began implementing his Catch and Release network at the United States–Mexico border, an analysis reveals.  The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) released its annual report estimating the size of the illegal alien population residing in the United States.

Supreme Court Strikes Down Texas' Challenge to Biden Border Policy.  The Supreme Court Friday struck down Texas and Louisiana's legal challenge to new Biden administration border policies that violate federal statutes and harm citizens in Texas and Louisiana, the states argued.  All justices besides Samuel Alito concurred in the opinion that Texas and Louisiana lack standing to challenge the new rules, which the Department of Homeland Security promulgated in 2021.  Texas and Louisiana argued that federal law requires law enforcement to arrest certain noncitizens upon their release from prison or entry of a final order of removal, but the new DHS rule only prioritizes the arrest and removal of noncitizens who are suspected terrorists or dangerous criminals who unlawfully entered the country recently.  The states claimed that these rules harmed them by imposing extra costs by requiring them to continue to incarcerate or supply social services — such as health care and education — to noncitizens.

Supreme Court allows Biden administration to limit immigration arrests, ruling against states.  The Supreme Court on Friday cleared the way for the Biden administration to reinstate rules that instruct Immigration and Customs Enforcement to focus its deportation efforts in the U.S. interior on immigrants with serious criminal convictions and those deemed to threaten national security.  The court found that Texas and Louisiana, the two states that challenged the administration's guidelines, lacked standing to bring the suit, formally known as United States v. Texas.  The ruling was 8-1, with only Justice Samuel Alito dissenting.  Justice Brett Kavanaugh wrote the opinion for the majority, joined by Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan and Ketanji Brown Jackson.  Justices Neil Gorsuch, Clarence Thomas and Amy Coney Barrett concurred in the judgment, with Gorsuch and Barrett contributing opinions of their own.

The U.S. Transitions from Superpower to Migrant Colony.  While Joe Biden and his team of anti-borders radicals have been busy turning our country into a make-a-wish charity for the rest of the world's population, it seems little, if any, thought was given to where all these newcomers would reside.  Most of our larger cities, which illegal aliens tend to live in or near, appear beyond capacity due to the White House-engineered border stampede.  As even the most doctrinaire sanctuary mayors are now waving surrender flags, an alternative plan has become necessary.  The solution?  Third World-style shanty towns in places like rural Liberty County near Houston.  Already home to more than 75,000 migrants, a community called "Colony Ridge" is undergoing a massive expansion with huge tracts of land being clear-cut to create more living space.  Apparently it's not considered ecosystem-killing deforestation if it's done to deposit more illegal aliens into America.

It's also known as "bluffing."
Eric Adams Says Offer To House Migrants In Gracie Mansion Was Just Symbolic.  Democratic New York City Mayor Eric Adams backtracked on his vow to house migrants in Gracie Mansion on Thursday, saying that the "symbolism" of his offer spoke volumes.  Adams said earlier in June that he'd welcome migrants into the five-room Gracie Mansion if city lawyers approved it, but backtracked Thursday during a press conference with reporters.  "Leading the challenge of the migrant problem is both substantive and symbolic and as I always said, 'Good generals lead from the front,'" Adams said, according to the New York Post.  "They don't send their troops into battle and ask, 'How was the war?'  They lead them into battle.  The symbolism of saying, 'I'm willing to put a homeless family in Gracie' is that symbolism."

Trump's Indictment and the Collapse of Confidence in Our Institutions.  While Kamala Harris fumbles her fruitless search for the "root causes" of migration, her administration has erected a big flashing sign essentially reading, "Welcome, Neighbor.  Come on in.  We're not really trying to keep you out."  They mouth the words "don't come," but inaction speaks louder than words.  And come they have, individuals from poor countries looking to move up to the First World.  Yet the welcome sign is equally attractive to organized criminal gangs looking to tap the market for fentanyl and heroin, child labor, and sex workers.  When these illegal immigrants arrive, millions have been released, willy-nilly, into America and told to return in a few years for a court date.  Their claims for political asylum will be heard at that distant date and almost always rejected.  But why bother to return for the court date at all?  You aren't likely to be caught and, even if you are, you can simply cross the border again.

After the surge, ready for the shantytowns?  Some five million foreign nationals have been let into the U.S. based on Joe Biden's open border policies.  They have to live somewhere.  Many, and perhaps most, do not have U.S. sponsors.  There's no plan of action for what to do about five million migrants from the Biden administration other than to let them stay.  New York City, where some 60,000 have arrived, is stretched the the breaking point with the caring and feeding of that many newcomers.  At some point, there is no place to put them.  Housing on their own economic muscle is generally out of the question — because it's the same for ordinary Americans.  But they still have to live somewhere.  And now suddenly, we're seeing where — in the emergence of shantytowns now beginning to ring America's major cities such as Houston, making them resemble Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, Mexico City, Caracas, Medellin, Lima, Quito, San Pedro Sula, and other places — all of which have nice ritzy centers, housing for the rich and upper middle classes, and endless rings of shantytowns in the hillsides and valleys outside these big cities where the desperately poor live in tin-roof hovels, some precariously positioned on cliffs, with no flush toilets, no running water, no paved roads, no electricity or only pilfered electricity from power lines to power the television sets and sometimes refrigerators inside.

Why Legal Immigration Is Nearly Impossible.  America traditionally had few immigration restrictions, but since the 1920s, the law has banned most aspiring immigrants.  Today, fewer than 1 percent of people who want to move permanently to the United States can do so legally.  Immigrants cannot simply get an exception to immigrate any more than restaurateurs in the 1920s could simply get an exception to sell alcohol.  Instead, just as Prohibition granted only a few exemptions for religious, industrial, or medical uses of alcohol, people seeking an exception to immigration prohibition must also fit into preexisting carve-outs for a select few.

FEMA to Give $363.8 Million to Non-Federal Entities to Provide Shelter for Illegal Aliens.  Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), under the guise of humanitarian concern, has enacted the "Shelter and Services Program," funneling $363.8 million of taxpayers' money in the fiscal year 2023 to non-federal entities, claiming to support the U.S. Customs and Border Protection in the "safe, orderly, and humane release" of illegal immigrants.

New York lawmakers rebuke Biden, FAA for agreeing to house migrants at JFK building.  Several members of New York's Republican congressional delegation on Wednesday [6/7/2023] signed onto a scathing letter sent to the heads of the Federal Aviation Administration and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey condemning the decision to house migrants at John F. Kennedy International Airport.  The letter, authored by Rep. Anthony D'Esposito and co-signed by Reps.  Elise Stefanik, Nick Langworthy, Marc Molinaro, Claudia Tenney, Nick LaLota, Andrew Garbarino, Brandon Williams and Mike Lawler, denounces the move to open an emergency shelter for arriving migrants in an old postal warehouse at JFK.  "The recent decision by the FAA and Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to house illegal migrants at JFK Airport poses both a security threat to one of America's largest transportation hubs and represents the palpable failure of the Biden Administration's disastrous border policies," D'Esposito told The [New York] Post in a statement on Wednesday.

The Editor says...
There are multiple reasons to oppose this idea, including these:  [#1]  Most of the people being sheltered and fed are here illegally and should be deported.  They are non-citizens living here at the expense of the citizens.  [#2] Even the federal government will run out of spare buildings before the supply of illegal aliens is exhausted.  [#3] The government is not really providing "housing" for these inconvenient visitors.  The "old postal warehouse" was not designed to be a dormitory, and doesn't have enough cooking and sanitation facilities for hundreds of residents.

Migrants exploit loophole in border app to enter US without asylum appointments.  Migrants have already found a loophole allowing them to hand themseleves over at the border and claim asylum without making an appointment through the CBP One app — which could effectively open the floodgates for thousands more to turn up at the southern border.  The mobile immigration app was trumpeted by the Biden Administration as the only legal pathway for asylum-seekers after Title 42 ended in May.  It allows 1,000 people a day to cross into the US and claim asylum.  After failing to secure an appointment on his own, Cesar Segura read the application's fine print — which states if "language barriers, illiteracy or technical issues," stop a person from completing the process online, they can just show up to a US port of entry in person and request an interview according to Border Report.

Another Plane Carrying Migrants Arrives in Sacramento.  Another plane carrying migrants arrived in Sacramento on Monday, and California officials believe they came from Florida.  The plane carrying about 20 migrants arrived on Monday in Sacramento after more than a dozen South American migrants were flown on a charter jet from New Mexico over the weekend.  "Documents carried by the migrants appear to show that the weekend flight was arranged through the Florida Division of Emergency Management and that it was part of the state's program to relocate migrants, mostly from Texas, to other states, California Atty.  Gen. Rob Bonta said," reported the Los Angeles Times.

The Border Crisis Is Overwhelming Schools In Some Of America's Most Populated Cities.  The crisis at the southern border is overwhelming school systems in several metropolitan areas of the country, according to multiple reports.  New York City, Miami-Dade County, Denver and Chicago school systems have all had to adapt to the influx of migrants, according to reports.  Border Patrol recorded more than 632,000 encounters of migrant families and unaccompanied children in fiscal year 2022 at the southern border and more than 365,000 in the first seven months of fiscal year 2023, according to federal data.

The Editor says...
The majority of the new arrivals are here illegally.  We have no obligation to admit them to the public schools.

FAA Greenlights Plan to Allow Illegal Immigrants to Be Housed at JFK Airport.  This week, the Federal Aviation Administration signed off on plans to open an emergency relief shelter for illegal immigrants in an old postal warehouse at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York.  According to the New York Post, the FAA signed off on the Port Authority plans to open the shelter after local and state officials searched the city and surrounding areas for new places to house illegal immigrants coming from the southern border.  According to the outlet, the area has seen more than 70,000 people arrive from South and Central America.  "The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey asked if an old postal warehouse near JFK Airport could be used for non-aviation purposes," the FAA said in a statement.  "The FAA found that the Port Authority had adequate security and safety plans in place."  [Tweet]

With Cities Running Out of Room to House Them, Biden Increases the Number of Asylum-seekers Allowed Into the U.S..  The Biden Administration has made sure there isn't a visible problem with asylum seekers and illegal aliens at the border.  They've invented a way to process individuals in record time so that up to 1,250 a day can be allowed into the country.  It's a phone app known as CBP One and since it was introduced in January, as many as 120,000 people have entered the country simply by accessing the app and scheduling an appointment with border patrol to see if their asylum claim is valid.  CBP One allows asylum seekers and illegal aliens to get around rules that are supposed to allow the CBP to vet the new arrivals to make sure they aren't criminals or terrorists.  Processing 1,250 illegal aliens a day should not be anyone's ideal of "vetting" anybody.

College Is Now Free For Illegals In Minnesota.  In an unprecedented move, the state of Minnesota has unveiled its "North Star Promise" program, offering free college tuition to all residents whose families earn less than $80,000 annually, irrespective of their immigration status.  While some celebrate this as an inclusive initiative, it raises pertinent questions about the fairness, fiscal responsibility, and potential long-term consequences of such a policy.  The program's eligibility criteria offer another point of contention.  To qualify, students must graduate from a Minnesota high school, live in the state for at least 12 months without being enrolled in college more than half-time, and maintain good academic standing.

The Editor says...
That's how it starts, anyway.  Pretty soon, the part about "good academic standing" will be long forgotten, and the $80,000 annual income ceiling will be raised.

It's Now or Never.  America has its southern border and Canada has its Roxham Road.  The U.S. is suffering far more than this country, but when one considers a proportionate census, we are doing our best to catch up.  The agreement between Joe Biden and Justin Trudeau to stanch the northern flow of migrants and refugees is, realistically speaking, a mere paper concession.  The real and ongoing intention is clearly to dilute a cohesive citizenry and render the nation a stranger to itself, easy pickings for subversion. [...] Once the nation is dispossessed of faith, family and coherent borders, the devastation will be complete.

'We've Been Abandoned': Border Ranchers Recount Chaos On Southern Border.  Wayne King might have a window into America's future, and he doesn't like what he sees.  King, a rancher with 8,000 acres in Texas' Del Rio Border Patrol Sector, believes that Americans, especially those who live on the border, have been abandoned.  It doesn't quite feel like you're in Texas anymore when you enter King's 8,000 acres.  Rather than cows and sheep, the ranch boasts gazelle, wildebeest, and other exotic African game animals.  King, who leads African safari hunting tours on the ranch, has been forced to spend an increasing amount of time ensuring the wild African game doesn't escape onto the highway, repairing fencing that's been cut by illegal border crossers who come through the ranch.

Can the Consequences of Mass Migration be Reversed?  Although voices such as that of the John Birch Society have long been ringing the alarm bell on the disastrous effects that mass migration — both legal and illegal — have had on the American polity, for so long, it was something of a taboo topic even within the Republican Party.  Most Republicans prior to 2016 constantly felt the compulsion to qualify their support for immigration enforcement with a call for a "compassionate" path to citizenship.  Now, the party, and the conservative movement as a whole, have become much more "hardline" on immigration.  Conversations about crime, drugs, welfare spending, degradation of the quality of our schools and public services, and demographic changes resulting from unchecked migration are all now issues that we can talk about in the mainstream without beating around the bush.  Although definitive action has not yet followed, at least the national conversation has shifted in the right direction.

California Senate Approves $300 Weekly Checks for Unemployed Illegals.  The California Senate on Tuesday voted to pay $300 weekly checks to unemployed illegal immigrants even as the state faces a roughly $31.5 billion deficit and mass illegal immigration.  Democratic state senators passed Senate Bill 227 by Sen. María Elena Durazo (D.) with a 30-7 vote, sending the measure to the Assembly for approval.  The legislation would offer undocumented aliens up to 20 weeks of unemployment benefits if they meet minimal work requirements.  California's unemployment insurance fund, which was defrauded of some $31 billion during the COVID-19 pandemic, would be in charge of dispensing the checks.  California employers are on the hook for the fund's $20 billion debt in the form of higher payroll taxes that threaten employee-heavy small businesses and restaurants already devastated by California Democrats' strict COVID-19 lockdowns.

The Editor says...
Illegal aliens should be subject to deportation at any moment, especially if they are unemployed parasites, and any job they get is a job that a U.S. citizen should have first refused.  On the other hand, pending deportation, no matter what you think of them, they've gotta eat.  How much will $300 buy in California?

The Party's Over.  Our bill of particulars for Impeachment can have many clauses, but there is no need to go any further than the President's clear refusal to enforce existing immigration laws for more than two years, and to invite and allow a literal invasion on our southern border.  This has caused manifest harms and damages to our entire nation, not least of which have been the proximate cause of nearly 200,000 deaths of American citizens from drugs like fentanyl flooding across our border.  The list of horribles caused by President Biden's betrayal of our country, its laws, and its citizens, is long and blood soaked.  We know that his illegal actions have resulted in the deaths from exposure, torture, and exploitation of thousands of individuals drawn by the "promise" of an easy illegal entry into our blessed land.  We know that his actions have enriched the brutal and savage Mexican and South American cartels to the tune of billions of dollars each month.  He has created a pathway, a royal road leading the worst corruption and destruction, to every doorstep in our nation.  We are now flooded with deadly drugs, child prostitution, deranged criminal gangs and individuals, slave labor, and untold illnesses and disease.

Biden's Migrant Mobile App Frees 80K Foreign Nationals into U.S. in 4 Months.  President Joe Biden's Customs and Border Protection (CBP) One mobile app, which allows users to schedule appointments at the United States-Mexico border, has now helped release nearly 80,000 foreign nationals into American communities in less than four months.  For more than two years, Biden's Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has implemented a number of programs in its expansive Catch and Release network, including the CBP One mobile app.  The mobile app entices foreign nationals in Mexico who are pregnant, mentally ill, elderly, disabled, homeless, or crime victims to schedule an appointment with DHS officials at the border in the hopes of being released into American communities.

Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz to Retire Amid Immigration Turmoil.  Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz told the agency charged with protecting the United States' borders on Tuesday he will be retiring at the end of June after serving for 32 years.  "I leave at ease, knowing we have a tremendous uniformed and professional workforce, strong relationships with our union partners, and outstanding leaders who will continue to tirelessly advocate for you each day.  Throughout the years, my level of commitment to the mission and our great nation has never wavered," Ortiz said.

Illegal Aliens [are] Throwing Parties in NYC Hotels.  In New York City, illegal aliens who are currently being housed in former hotels have been throwing wild parties during their stays, according to a former employee of one such facility.  According to the Washington Free Beacon, the former Row NYC Hotel employee, Carlos Arellano, said that "every day, we find about 10 kids alone in their hotel rooms, either drinking or doing drugs, weapons will be in the room.  It's basically a free-for-all."  Arellano said that on one occasion, he found a girl as young as 10 years old intoxicated in a room.  He further claims that the staff were ordered not to intervene whenever they encountered such disturbances, despite concerns among other employees that some of the illegals are not really parents of the children who accompanied them.  "We're not allowed to go in there," said Arellano. "We're not allowed to take anything from them."

Black Chicago Residents Freak Out Of The City Approving 51 Million For Illegals.  The Chicago City Council voted Wednesday to spend $51 million in funding from a 2021 budget surplus to pay for efforts to care for migrants from Central and South America who have been sent here from Texas, following a heated debate that was repeatedly interrupted by angry protesters.  The vote came one week after three alderpersons opposed to the measure temporarily blocked a final vote during Mayor Brandon Johnson's first City Council meeting.  [Video clip]

Migrant hotel employee reveals the 'free for all' of drugs, sex and violence.  A former worker at New York's Row Hotel has come forward to reveal the disgusting conditions migrants newly arrived in Manhattan are keeping their hotel rooms, which the city is footing the bill for.  Carlos Arellano, who no longer works for the once luxury hotel, has described the premises as a 'free for all' of drugs, sex and violence and should be shut down.  Almost all of the 1,300 rooms set across 28 floors of the hotel have been turned over to host migrants, with the city paying $500-a-night for the migrants to be housed.

Tom Homan: Track, Detain, and Deport to Deal with Biden's Border Disaster.  There are over five million illegal immigrants on ICE's non-detained docket, most of whom face years of court proceedings before a judge determines their immigration fate.  This number will continue to balloon after the Biden administration ended the use of Title 42 deportations on May 11, a COVID-era policy that allowed the U.S. to immediately expel millions of illegal aliens as a threat to public health.  In the run up to the end of the policy this month, daily border encounters soared to historic heights, with over 10,000 per day.  On May 11, Border Patrol paroled 6,000 migrants to the streets of the United States with no court date even provided, simply relying on the honor system in the hopes these individuals would proactively check in with ICE at some point in the future.  This policy of mass parole has since been put on temporary hold by a Florida judge.

Reps. Gooden, Jordan, Demand Answers On Federal Funding Of Illegal Immigration.  Congressmen Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Lance Gooden (R-TX) issued a joint letter calling attention to the potential use of federal funds to enable illegal immigration into the United States.  The letter, which was issued to the National Board of FEMA's Emergency Food and Shelter program, specifically points to the role of federally-funded NGOs in the immigration process.  "Since President Biden took office, U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials have encountered over five million illegal aliens.  This is a direct consequence of the Biden Administration's policies," a press release from Gooden states.  It goes on to state, "nearly two million illegal aliens have been released into the U.S. in accordance with Department of Homeland Security (DHS) policy."  The press release also highlights the role of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) like United Way that receive federal grants and "reportedly use DHS grant funding through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to provide aid to illegal aliens."

Send Them Back.  Only a country that has lost the will to survive would tolerate the invasion underway all across America.  There is no longer a southern border to speak of.  From Arizona to Maine, towns are under siege by a relentless, surging mass of humanity.  The lowly citizen has been trampled underfoot to make lebensraum for the hallowed "asylum seeker," whose conquering steps are greeted with suppliant knee.  These newcomers are an enormous, indefinite strain on public resources, which must provide schooling, housing, healthcare, and food.  They bring unnecessary and unwanted violence and crime.  Nobody actually wants them in their neighborhoods, including the dopey liberals who vote to bring them here.  Life for Americans is challenging enough, with housing affordability at its worst levels in decades, a dearth of good-paying jobs, and a recession looming.  But as the earth orbits the sun, the Left wrings its hands and plays hot potato with the mess they created.  With the end of Title 42, New York City is dumping the problem wherever it can, including on more politically moderate suburbs, like Long Island's east end that didn't vote for Joe Biden or open borders.  Large stretches of the east end are already unrecognizable to lifetime residents after decades of unwanted Third World colonization.

Misplaced Biden Priorities in the Dept of Defense.  Consider these actions, all of which have made America much weaker: [...] [#2] The wide-open US-Mexican border.  Without secure borders and tightly controlled immigration, there is no US national security.  Certainly not when criminals, would-be terrorists, narco-traffickers, human traffickers, gang-bangers, and other ne'er-do-wells are free to enter America without fear of incarceration or deportation.  Estimates of nearly 6 million illegal aliens have streamed across the border since Biden reversed the Trump administration's immigration policies in one of his first actions.  Breitbart reported last October that there have been "5.5 million encounters" along the border, but no one knows how many people slipped through undetected.  The Biden administration is even leveraging UN dollars to "pre-legalize" illegal immigrants before they enter the US, as reported by the Center for Immigration Studies.  Fentanyl-related deaths in the US have increased to an average of 100,000 per year due to cartel-provided access to the drug (the drug and its precursors are manufactured in China).

When it comes to illegal aliens, the left insists that we can't just 'round them up'.  As we're nowhere close to having an accurate estimate of how many illegal aliens have invaded the United States simply because they wanted to come here, there's no telling what the scope of the problem will be after the next Republican assumes the White House.  Obviously, there's only one person to date who's made a concerted and effective effort to address the scourge, so let's dump this on Donald Trump.  The left said then and is saying it now: "We just can't round them all up...."  Says who?  Maybe, we should give it a shot.  After all, despite the altruistic (and phony) overtures liberals make regarding illegals, things like "sanctuary" cities and states, their true colors are often shown for all the world to see when the uninvited show up on their doorsteps.  (See, e.g., Martha's Vineyard, New York City, Chicago, etc.)

After Covid: Twelve Challenges for a Shattered World.  [Scroll down]  Never forget that the travel restrictions that began in 2020 kept most of the human population locked in their nation-state residences for years, even those living on islands that used to be sanctuaries.  The right to visit the US for the "unvaccinated" only resumed on May 11, 2023.  The captivity of the people has also driven a desperate desire to flee and find a new home.  The massive demographic shifts in the US population, out of lockdown states to open states, is reflected internationally too.  With huge populations on the move, states have been forced to come to terms with migration policies on which there is no political consensus.  This problem is blowing up right now on the US Southern border, leading to tremendous anger that has turned into a major populist backlash under the impression that the country is being invaded.  This is not going to end well for anyone.  The answer has to be a rational and humane immigration policy that can somehow separate worker rights from voting rights, but the US is not prepared to tackle that issue as most nations in the world already have.  As a result, we toggle between legal restrictionism and border chaos.

The illegal alien invasion is being run by the Biden administration.  Between Matamoros, Mexico and Brownsville, Texas lies the Rio Grande river. [...] The Center for Immigration Studies recently revealed that it was told by Mexican immigration officers that the river crossings were secretly coordinated with the Department of Homeland Security on Whatsapp so as to be able to expedite the release of the invaders into America.  CIS's Todd Bensman described how, "Once the Americans felt they could take in more, they message the Mexicans that 'they are ready to receive them.'"  And then "the officers signal to the waiting crowd to go forward and, once they figure enough are in the water, they cut off the rest and push and cajole them back into line until the Americans signal they're ready again."  What appeared to be the epitome of illegal migration was actually being run by the government.

Biden's Reckless Border Policies Are Ruining America.  In taking a wrecking ball to President Trump's effective policies to secure the border, Joe Biden has unleashed an unprecedented crisis of public safety and national security.  A flood of illegals is precipitating an increase in violent crime and aiding drug- and human-trafficking cartels.  It is also adding to the homeless, burdening government entitlement programs, and spreading disease.  Upon taking office, Biden revoked Trump's order to build a wall along the southern border.  He also ended Trump's "remain in Mexico" policy, the safe third country rule, and most recently (on May 12) Title 42 restrictions. [...] Biden replaced "remain in Mexico" with a catch-and-release policy, allowing border crossers to stay in the U.S. until an immigration court resolved their case, which could take four to seven years.  Though Title 42 restrictions remained in force till May 12, they were applied to only 30% of asylees after Biden took charge, so most illegal border crossers were released into the country.

The Cataclysm to Come.  Lawlessness has become a political matter where race, ideology, and politics decide how the law will be enforced.  At the border, millions of people enter our country illegally.  Joe Biden is shamefully welcoming an unvetted third-world population into our country to dilute and displace native-born Americans.  No country can exist without a border, much less allow foreign crime cartels to control it while killing 100,000 citizens with drugs yearly.

24 Republican Governors Offer to Help Texas Defend Its Southern Border.  Texas Governor Greg Abbott put the word out that Texas needs help handling the situation at their southern border.  24 Republican governors stepped up and answered the call.  This is the job of the federal government, but Joe Biden is MIA so someone has to fill the void.

Migrants to be housed in 6 more NYC school gyms — outraged parents say plan is 'just insane'.  At least six more Big Apple schools are set to start temporarily housing migrants in their gyms, prompting all hell to break loose Monday among parents frantic over safety and potential learning disruptions.  "To bus people to our school and expect the community to absorb them is just insane," fumed Virginia Vu, a PTA member and parent at Brooklyn's MS 577 in Williamsburg — adding some parents have already threatened to at least temporarily pull their kids out of the sixth-through-eighth grade school.  "We care about asylum-seekers, and we're proud our city is a 'sanctuary city' — but housing asylum seekers on school grounds is absolutely unacceptable," she said.  MS 577 shares a gym with PS 17 — one of five Brooklyn elementary schools to soon have asylum-seekers living out of their gymnasiums, too, as New York City struggles to cope with the surging migrant crisis, sources told The [New York] Post.

Stop calling them "asylum-seekers" if they're only coming here for a lifetime of welfare benefits, or if they sneaked into this country illegally, or if they passed through several other relatively friendly countries en route to the U.S., or if they are military-age men from China.  And stop calling New York City a "sanctuary city" if they're looking for ways to get rid of all the illegal aliens that are now pouring in.

Court Backlog Clog: It's the Story of Immigration Now and It's Growing Inexorably Worse.  New migrants pouring into the U.S. after the Biden administration let a COVID-19 restriction called Title 42 expire last week will not break the nation's stretched court system.  The system is already shattered, according to several former judges, immigration experts, and Department of Homeland Security data.  The average wait time for a "Notice to Appear" before a judge at one of the nation's 66 immigration courts is now four and a half years.  In some cities it is much longer.  In New York City, new migrants do not have to appear in court until 2032.  This growing backlog creates an incentive for more people to cross the border and request asylum as each new case pushes assigned court dates further into the future.  In the meantime, many migrants are permitted to live and work in the United States.  "It's well past broken," said Art Arthur, a former immigration court judge and now a resident fellow at the conservative Center for Immigration Studies.

For Decades, Democrats Have Been Ignoring Evidence And Facts.  The Democrat party, led by Liar in Chief Joe Biden, tells us that the American border is secure while Americans watch thousands of illegal immigrants stream across the border every single day.  Those poor "asylum seekers" are given phones, have to promise to return to court to adjudicate their cases — sometimes in 5 or 10 years — and are sent on their merry ways.  Of course, many of those never even bother to show up for court.  And hundreds of thousands more are simply released without even being given a court date.  To make things even more ridiculous, while they're busy gaslighting the entire country, Democrats are shivving their single most solid constituency.  Of course, the border is not a new problem.  In 1986, Ronald Reagan signed the Simpson-Mazzoli Act, which granted asylum to 2.7 million illegal aliens in return for securing the border.  Democrats took the asylum and screwed Reagan and the nation on securing the border.  Since then, no president other than Trump has had any interest in securing the border, and he was stymied at every single turn by Democrats and leftist judges.  The result is that today there are upwards of 40 million illegal aliens in the country, with millions more crossing the border every year.

The Border Wall Is Not Looking Like Such A Bad Idea Now, Eh?  Ask any casual political observer about the recent trend of Republican governors busing illegals to Democrat-run sanctuary cities and you're likely to get the same answer:  It's a "stunt."  A Republican might agree with the policy on its face, but would likely concede it is unlikely to make any real difference on the border.  The number of people sent to big cities like New York, Chicago, and D.C. pales in comparison to the record-breaking flow arriving at the border each day. [...] It's not just a busing policy, but a busing crisis worthy of big cities declaring a state of emergency.  It is nothing more than a "cruel stunt" that reveals Republicans' extremism.  Both Democrats and Republicans are wrong however; the strategy is in fact much more than a "stunt."  Busing migrants to major Democratic strongholds has actually achieved a concrete GOP political goal: it has created a political wedge between major figures in the Democratic party.

Judge Blocks NYC from Pawning Off Border Crossers on Upstate Suburbs.  A New York Supreme Court judge has blocked New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) from busing any more border crossers and illegal aliens to Orange County, New York, a decision that comes after a judge blocked the city from sending new arrivals to Rockland County, New York.  On Tuesday, a New York judge granted Orange County officials' request for a temporary restraining order blocking a plan by Adams to bus hundreds, potentially thousands, of border crossers and illegal aliens to the county and put them up in hotels, paid for by New Yorkers.  This is the second temporary restraining order that judges have hit Adams with over his plan to bus migrants to New York's upstate suburbs.  Last week, in Rockland County, a judge blocked migrants from being bused by the city to the area.

Illegal Alien Tracking Map Shows Movement of the Masses of Illegals Across the US.  In December 2022 Heritage Foundation released a study tracking the movement of illegal aliens from their NGO launching point to destinations across the United States.  According to Heritage, of the 52 congressional districts with the highest density of devices, 71% were Republican congressional districts.  Texas had the highest density of illegals followed by Oklahoma.

How to Deal With the Millions of Migrants Now in the US?  Republican members of Congress want to deport as many illegal immigrants as possible to manage the impacts of the border crisis on the interior of the U.S., several told the Daily Caller News Foundation.  Reps.  Byron Donalds of Florida, Mark Green of Tennessee and Mike Kelly of Pennsylvania believe that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) should be able to go out and arrest individuals for the sole reason that they're illegally present in the country, they told the DCNF. The Biden administration changed ICE's priorities to only arrest and deport individuals deemed threats to national security, public safety and border security.  "This is the unfortunate tragedy of Joe Biden's strategy.  His strategy is to just bring a deluge of people into the country around our immigration law.  So, unfortunately, what you're really going to have to do at some point if people ignore their court hearings, you're gonna have to deport them," Donalds told the DCNF.

Border Patrol paroled 2,500 migrants after judge's ruling halting program.  Homeland Security paroled roughly 2,500 migrants into the U.S. from the southern border on Friday, according to a department source.  A day earlier, a judge issued a temporary restraining order against the Border Patrol's use of parole to catch and release the wave of migrants cresting along the U.S.-Mexico boundary.  Judge T. Kent Wetherell's order, which the Biden administration is appealing, was in effect Friday.  It's unclear what authority the government used for the new paroles.

UK Could See Over One Million Migrants This Year, Report Claims.  More than one million migrants could end up arriving in Britain this year, a report on Friday has claimed.  Experts reportedly expect that there could be over one million migrants landing in Britain this year, a report by The Telegraph has revealed.  The paper had formerly put the maximum net migration figure for 2023 at somewhere in the region of 675,000 thousand ahead of official statistics set to be released by the UK government in the coming weeks.

El Paso Processing Center Is Massively Overflowing With Young Men Only, No Women and Children.  Border Patrol's Central Processing Center in El Paso is incredibly overcrowded.  Max capacity is 1,000, but as of Friday, they were holding 6,000 migrants, almost all exclusively young men, no women and children.  [Video clip]

What Are All These Illegals Going to Do?  [Scroll down]  [#3] Menial jobs, welfare, homelessness, crime.  Very few of the illegals are skilled laborers (except for picking Nancy's crops), so they won't be able to get high paying jobs.  They will live together in hovels, 8, 10, 12 to a house, or on the streets, and be in poverty.  Many will, of course, get on welfare and you and I will take care of them through our tax dollars.  There are a lot of other criminals crossing the border as well, and thus the Democrat-caused crime wave will escalate.  All this chaos is exactly what the Left wants because... [#4] These people are a revolution waiting to happen.  The illegals are going to discover that Joe Biden's America is not what it was advertised to be.  Most of them will exist in squalor and deep poverty, with no easy avenue of escape.  Many children will end up in some kind of child labor or maybe even sex slavery to help their families subsist.  It is a horrible situation Biden is creating.  Many of these people left their countries to get away from this, but they will find a concomitant situation in the United States.  If we think a revolution cannot happen in America, then we are only deluding ourselves.  Adolf Hitler actually came to power legally, but Mao Zedong required a civil war.  Lenin took advantage of mass discontent to take over Russia, and that appears to be the most likely scenario in America.

The Counterattack of Reason.  As Biden's open-border policies have allowed in without tracking millions of illegal aliens, governors of the most affected states have started shipping them north to cities where Democrat politicians have long signaled their virtue by declaring themselves sanctuary cities.  Now they are claiming these relatively small numbers of immigrants are more than they can handle. [...] New York City is shipping some of the flood upstate to communities that are expected to house them.  Several Democrat senators (Sherrod Brown, Joe Manchin, John Tester, Kyrsten Sinema) are joining Republicans in supporting SB 1473, which will "authorize the immediate expulsion of inadmissible aliens attempting to enter the United States by fraud or without a necessary entry document, and for other purposes," which, in essence, is extending Title 42.  This was a statute from 2020 that prohibited asylum-seekers from entering the country due to the coronavirus pandemic.  In Chicago, black voters are outraged by the plan to house these illegals in the South side of the city, bumping them off city housing lists.

Chicago Democrats [are] in Trouble With Black Voters Over Migrant Invasion of South Side.  Chicago got a lot more than it bargained for when the people voted for "sanctuary city" policies.  Taking them at their word — that they would welcome hordes of illegal aliens — the governor of border state Texas, Greg Abbott, has been sending busloads of people who cross into his state illegally right to the heart of Chicago.  It's the best idea anyone has come up with yet.  Let the sanctuary cities become the new border towns!  Let the blowhards who say it's inhumane to turn people away absorb them!  Afterall, they're the compassionate ones, right?  They're the ones who continually point the finger at the border state governors and criticize their reluctance to take on the never-ending human waves.  So why, when they've now been given the chance to welcome them with open arms, is there trouble in sanctuary paradise?

Illegal Immigrants Get Free Smartphones Paid for by US Taxpayers — Some Do Not Have Court Dates Until 2035.  As of today, Friday, the Title 42 border protection order has officially expired, and the United States is preparing for a record-breaking flood of illegal immigrants at the southern border.  On Thursday, independent journalist Tayler Hansen shared a video on Twitter showing illegal aliens using U.S. taxpayer-funded cell phones after they were given court dates.  [Tweet]  In 2022, the Biden regime reportedly issued over 300,000 smartphones to illegal aliens as part of the "Alternatives to Detention Program (ATD).  U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) claimed the phones' facial recognition, GPS tracking, and voice-identifying features are used to keep track of new illegal immigrants while they wait for their court dates.  According to Hansen, some of the illegal immigrants' court dates reportedly won't be until 2027.  New York Post reported that some illegal immigrants were given court dates set as late as 2032 and 2035 in Chicago and Florida.

Cities Declare States of Emergency as Massive Numbers of Illegal Aliens Continue to Swarm the U.S. Southern Border.  Several border cities have declared states of emergency as the migrant invasion of the United States escalates.  However, it's not just border states; many of these illegal aliens are traveling to metropolitan areas leading to New York and Chicago declaring a state of emergency. [...] Most of the corporate media have tried to distract from the more than 10,000 illegal aliens now crossing every day.  Major U.S. media outlets are now ignoring the outcome of Joe Biden's intentionally collapsed border policies.  For several months Ben Bergquam has been covering the illegal alien invasion for Bannon's War Room.  [Video clip]

An Overwhelmed Border Patrol Is Missing an Epidemic of Runners and 'Got-aways'.  Border Patrol agents, equipped with sophisticated technology, attempt to apprehend migrants illegally crossing into the United States.  But securing the border has become more difficult as agents are taken off the line to process unprecedented numbers of illegal migrants turning themselves in, instead of preventing smuggling, drug and human trafficking, and identifying national security threats.  The end of Title 42 will push the numbers of migrants and got-aways even higher.  Todd Bensman, the Center's senior national security fellow, joins agents in New Mexico for a nighttime search for illegal migrants and warns of the got-away trends.  Got-aways are unlawful border-crossers who are "directly or indirectly observed making an unlawful entry into the United States", but who are not apprehended.  [Video clip]

Federal judge makes clear who is to blame for border crisis, halts Biden's migrant 'parole' program.  A federal judge late Thursday temporarily halted the Biden administration's plan to parole migrants who illegally cross the southern border.  For two years, the Biden administration has released some migrants without giving them a court date.  Through the Alternatives to Detention program, migrants without a court date are tracked and required to "check in" using a phone application.  The program was designed to prevent migrants from disappearing into the shadows while they await their court dates.  But the administration prepared a new "parole" program this week to release migrants from custody without a court date or any way to track them, NBC News reported.

13 States Move for Emergency Relief From Biden Regime's Open Border Policy.  Thirteen states have moved for emergency relief from the Biden regime's plan to release potentially thousands of illegal immigrants into the United States daily due to overcrowding in migrant holding facilities.  Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey filed a motion on Friday seeking a court order to force the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to abandon "this illegal program."  The motion was filed as part of Bailey's existing lawsuit against DHS contesting the regime's refusal to secure the southern border.  "As Attorney General, I will enforce the laws as written, which includes ensuring that the Biden Administration cannot create unlawful immigration programs without the express permission of Congress," said Attorney General Bailey. "President Biden's immigration policy is so egregious that we can't even finish one lawsuit before needing to amend it to address something else.  The Constitution is clear: the President is tasked with securing our border.  I am working to force President Biden to do so."

The border catastrophe is Cloward-Piven all the way.  My classmate Barack Obama and I graduated on the same day in spring of 1983.  This very month is the 40th anniversary of our Columbia graduation.  These Columbia University radicals (and traitors) had a plan named Cloward-Piven.  It was named after two Columbia University professors:  the husband-and-wife team of Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven.  The plan was actually simple: Get everyone possible in America on welfare, food stamps and a hundred other government welfare programs.  Get so many on the government dole that the economy is overwhelmed, destroyed and collapses under the weight of the exploding national debt.  Basically, America goes bankrupt.  At this point, Americans would be in so much pain and so frightened that they would beg government to save them.  And that is how they would "fundamentally" change America forever.  Remember those words?  They came out of the mouth of Barack Obama.  He learned those words and this plan at Columbia.

Trump Takes a Hammer to the Carefully Maintained Delusions Inside the Left-Wing Bubble.  Any attempt to frame what is occurring at the southern border as an "invasion" would surely earn at least a few accusations of racism or xenophobia.  Yet over half of Americans openly frame it as an "invasion."  27-percent of Americans would not say one way or another in response to that loaded question, and only 19-percent would say that the we are absolutely not being invaded through our southern border.  Get that?  Only one-in-five Americans is willing to openly attest that we are not being invaded by foreign nationals across our southern border.  As Trump-era Title 42 ends, unprecedented waves of foreign nationals stand ready to break our laws and enter this country.  It is Biden's decision to rescind Trump's policies that is driving this outcome.  And well more than half of Americans do not approve of it.

Biden Heads to the Beach as Border Crisis Explodes, DHS Forces Officers to Work All Weekend.  Joe Biden is headed to his Rehoboth Beach compound for the weekend as the border crisis explodes.  Title 42 expired Friday at midnight and a migrant child has already died in US custody.  The border crisis is out of control and Joe Biden doesn't have a care in the world.

Record-breaking 67,759 migrants apprehended at US border this week.  US border agents apprehended a record-breaking 67,759 illegal migrants in the past week alone — including sex offenders and gang members — as well as a massive stash of fentanyl, officials said Friday [5/12/2023].  Another 15,780 illegal migrants eluded capture, tweeted US Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz.  Among those caught were five sex offenders, four gang members and two felons, authorities said.  Agents also seized 56 pounds of fentanyl, 179 pounds of methamphetamine, 34 pounds of cocaine, 5 pounds of heroin and seven firearms.  Border officials have struggled to manage an overwhelming surge in illegal immigration after the expiration of the Title 42 public health order, which allowed for expedited deportations during the coronavirus crisis.

Mayorkas issues new warning to migrants as Border Patrol makes record apprehensions ahead of Title 42 end.  Sources tell Fox News that the priority right now for Border Patrol is avoiding images of overcrowding and processing migrants as fast as possible.  Authorities earlier this week greenlighted "safe" mass street releases if CBP and non-governmental organization (NGO) partners cannot hold them.  It means that the largest wave of mass releases in history has already begun and will continue in the coming days.

Biden priority: Keeping photos of migrant overcrowding in detention out of the news — Report.  [Scroll down]  Which tells illegal migrants what Mayorkas means when he says not to cross the border.  It's not about the importance of obeying the law.  It's about avoiding news photos of too many migrants crossing the border which would bring bad publicity to him and his policies.  What a message to send to illegal border crossers.  Migrants already know that if they turn themselves into the Border Patrol, they'll more likely be mass-released into the country without so much as a court date for their inevitably spurious claims to asylum.  Title 42 resulted in the expulsion of only 19% of them, meaning, the rest had an 81% chance of getting in.  Now with Title 8, the result will be the same and if there are a lot of them coming, they will simply be released — after lots of tough vetting, they claim, another one to make migrants laugh.

Biden Made it Easier to Come to America Illegally Than Legally.  The Biden administration keeps pretending that it didn't want the mass migration crisis that it did everything possible to make happen, including fighting in the courts to enable the end of Title 42.  And the endgame, an even more massive surge of illegal aliens is everything that the administration desperately wanted.  The illegals are coming because Biden has made illegal migration into a more sensible immigration approach than going through the system.  As Joe Edlow at Heritage notes, "New reports indicate that U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has been ordered to shift its staffing to meet the higher demands at the border...  This move is not intended to control the border; it is aimed at more quickly processing illegal aliens into the United States.  As the administration has continually ignored statutory mandates to detain aliens claiming credible fear, this move is nothing more than a veiled attempt to keep the pipeline unclogged for the free-flowing open border."

Chicago residents launch legal action over plans to house 500 illegal immigrants inside a shuttered high school.  Furious residents of Chicago have filed a lawsuit against the city after it announced plans to house illegal immigrants in a disused high school in the South Side.  The old South Shore High School is expected to become a temporary holding space for up to 500 migrants, but officials have not clarified for how long.  The lawsuit was filed after on May 4 hundreds of South Shore residents packed into an auditorium and bombarded local officials with criticism over plans to house the migrants in the school, complaining about safety and a lack of consultation.

Federal judge blocks Biden admin from releasing migrants without court dates as Title 42 expires.  A federal judge on Thursday evening blocked the Biden administration from implementing a policy that allows for the release of migrants without court dates — just hours away from the end of the Title 42 public health order.  Judge T. Kent Wetherell II imposed a two-week restraining order on the Biden administration policy, which would see migrants released on "parole with conditions."  The policy was outlined in a Border Patrol memo this week, which says that migrants can be allowed into the country on parole — a process typically reserved for "urgent humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit" — if Customs and Border Protection (CBP) faces overcrowding.  The memo calls the practice "parole with conditions" as migrants are required to make an appointment with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) or request a Notice to Appear by mail.

In Major Reversal, Biden Resurrects Trump Border Policy Ahead Of Title 42 Repeal.  The Biden administration has brought back a Trump-era immigration rule the day before Title 42 is scheduled to sunset and encourage a wave of illegal immigration into the U.S.  The rule, finalized and published in the Federal Register on Wednesday, disqualifies migrants from applying for asylum in the U.S. if they neglected to first apply for asylum in other countries they traveled through, such as Mexico.  Hundreds of asylum officers were trained in how to enforce the rule on Tuesday ahead of Title 42's expiration, according to CBS News.  The new rule, a reversal of President Joe Biden's campaign promises, comes as the administration has failed for more than two years to control historic levels of illegal immigration into the U.S. The ongoing crisis at the southern border is widely expected to worsen later this week when Title 42, a health order authorizing border officials to immediately expel migrants without processing, is repealed at 11:59 p.m. on Thursday.  When former President Donald Trump implemented the rule to contain illegal immigration, Biden was one of his most vocal critics.  Biden used Trump's immigration policies as a club during the 2020 presidential campaign.

Biden DHS Coordinating Illegal Immigration In-Flows with Mexico.  In recent days, large crowds of immigrants have formed on the Mexican side of the Rio Grande fully prepared to swim over well-worn crossing spots to Brownsville — but seemingly held back by unarmed Mexican immigration officials.  Over the course of several recent days in this northeastern Mexican city when perhaps 3,000 immigrants a day swam over to Brownsville with no opposition on either side, a curious pattern became evident.  At some sort of signal from the Mexican immigration officers, a group of about 100-150 from the crowd would suddenly stand in unison and rush down the riverbank, past the immigration officers, and swim over to America.  It turns out that this pattern was far from happenstance.  The Center for Immigration Studies asked several of the Mexican immigration officers what was going on and learned that President Joe Biden's Department of Homeland Security has been coordinating these mass swims with Mexico's immigration service, INM, at high levels on an encrypted Whatsapp channel.

Texas AG Warns Threat to 'Sovereignty, Security' of Americans by Biden Ending Title 42 'Cannot Be Overstated'.  The detriment to "national sovereignty, border security, and the safety of American citizens" caused by ending Title 42 "cannot be overstated," warned Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton who slammed President Biden for "prioritizing an open-borders agenda above any semblance of border security."  In an exclusive statement to Breitbart News on Thursday, Paxton lamented the lifting of the Title 42 Trump-era public health policy that allows for the immediate expulsion of migrants without allowing them to seek asylum.  The reversal of the Biden administration's Title 42 COVID-19 expulsion authority, due for Friday, is expected to spur a wave of migration at the southern border.

NY Times revelation: People coming to the US border don't believe it's closed (because it's not).  Now that we're in the midst of a full fledged border crisis once again, immigration is finally a top story at some of the top newspapers.  It's at the top of the front page of the Washington Post and the NY Times.  The Post story points out that we're setting new records this week, averaging twice as many border crossings per day as we were in 2019 during what was then considered President Trump's border crisis. [...] Yesterday, the administration put in place new restrictions on who can claim asylum that are intended to partially replace the loss of Title 42 later tonight.  But the Post points out that under those rules the Biden administration is still legally required to make individual assessments of each migrant.

Cruz Explodes At The Border Over Biden's Crisis.  Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) excoriated Democrats while visiting the U.S.-Mexico border on Thursday ahead of the massive influx of illegal aliens set to flood into the U.S. as Title 42 expires.  "We are witnessing an absolute travesty unfolding on our southern border," Cruz told reporters Thursday evening. "On Monday, we apprehended over 10,000 people on the border, the highest level in history.  On Tuesday, we apprehended over 10,000 people on the border, again, the highest level in history.  There are, right now where we're standing, more than 22,000 people camped just south of the border, getting ready to come across just in this location.  In less than a month, we've had over 35,000 Venezuelans cross illegally, just right here."

The Staggering Flaws of the Biden Family.  A staggering number of unaccompanied children have been sent here, but to whom and why?  The Biden administration has seen almost 400,000 UACs cross the border.  An HHS whistleblower testified that 85,000 children are "lost" and cannot be accounted for, but are believed to be in indentured servitude (at best).  The Biden administration knows this and has done nothing.  Biden's reputation as a "compassionate" humanitarian is exposed for what it is:  rhetoric.

Build Back Borderless, Bankrupt, and Broken.  Remember: the same people who cannot protect the border from foreign invaders want you to believe that they can control inflation, COVID, and climate change.  While they lose the war against drug cartels in their own backyard, they want you to think that they can successfully manage wars on the other side of the globe.  While small towns struggle with transnational gang battles, urban homeless shelters overflow, and record-high overdose deaths cripple American society, the government's crack team of nation-killers ignore the country's pressing threats and instead preach about racism, "green" energy, and the importance of welcoming men in girls' restrooms. [...] Take a look around: America is burning.  Here's a simple rule of thumb to keep in mind: whenever you see crime that is spun as too big and complex for the government to tackle with its oversized toolkit of immense powers and nearly unlimited funding, the government is in on the crime.

Biden admin plans to order release of migrants into U.S. with no way to track them.  After more than 11,000 migrants crossed the southern border on Tuesday, the Biden administration is now preparing a memo that will direct Customs and Border Protection to begin releasing migrants into the United States without court dates or the ability to track them, according to three sources familiar with the plans.  The Biden administration began releasing migrants without court dates to alleviate overcrowding in March 2021, but had previously enrolled those migrants in a program known as "Alternatives to Detention," which required them to check in on a mobile app until they were eventually given a court date.  The new policy would release them on "parole" with a notice to report to an Immigration and Customs Enforcement office but without enrolling them in Alternatives to Detention.

ICE released hundreds of criminals to clear space for border surge.  Immigration and Customs Enforcement has been releasing illegal immigrants, including those with criminal records, from custody to clear space for the looming surge of more migrants at the border, in the latest sign of the government's scramble to prepare for the onslaught.  ICE cut its detention population to fewer than 23,000 at the start of the month, down from more than 28,000 six weeks earlier.  That includes hundreds of people with criminal records whom ICE has released.  Acting ICE Director Tae Johnson told Congress last month that he wanted to cut the population to as few as 21,000 people to leave plenty of space to accommodate the border chaos as the administration gives up its Title 42 pandemic expulsion power Thursday night.

150,000 migrants expected to cross the US border as Title 42 ends, and blue city mayors prepare for more buses.  The scope of this disaster really is amazing.  With Title 42 set to end Thursday the everyone from border state governors to blue city mayors is getting ready for a new influx of migrants.  There may not be a long wait because more than a hundred thousand people are already camped out on the Mexican side of the border waiting for the right moment. [...] So 150,000 people on the doorstep and maybe more than that on the way.  Shelters in Tijuana are overflowing.  The director of migrants affairs said a "humanitarian crisis" is near.

Texas DPS: Illegal Alien Apprehensions Reach Rate of 9,000 Per Day.  The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) recently claimed that the ongoing mass migration crisis has led to a daily rate of at least 9,000 apprehensions along the southern border.  Breitbart reports that DPS spokesman Lt.  Chris Olivarez confirmed the claims, saying that the previous two days have seen over 9,000 such apprehensions of illegal aliens.  These numbers surpass the previous highest daily rate in the month of December, which saw approximately 7,200 arrests per day.  If the daily rate of 9,000 holds steady for the rest of May, it will shatter previous records under the Biden Administration as well as the overall history of the Border Patrol, ultimately coming to about 279,000 illegal aliens apprehended this month; the previous month in April saw over 181,000 apprehensions overall.  The daily figures are expected to rise significantly, however, once the Trump-era Title 42 policy officially ends on May 11th.

Biden promises to veto border control.  Joe Biden isn't backtracking on his commitment to keep the border wide open.  Despite his weak protestations that he is committed to finding a solution to the border crisis his own policies created, today he promised to veto a Republican bill to beef up border security.  It's an interesting move for a man of whom nobody approves who has decided to campaign for reelection.  There are between 700,000 and a million migrants waiting to cross the border, and Biden's policies have already invited between 6 and 7 million illegal migrants into the country since his inauguration.

Lara Logan, Texas Republican Politicians Working Against Border Security.  Resident of Texas, Lara Logan, appears on Steve Bannon's War Room podcast to discuss the illegal alien invasion that is happening right now in the lone star state.  Logan notes that Texas republican politicians are actively working to keep the border open with migration flows controlled but not stopped.  As CTH has long documented, illegal mass immigration is a policy that both wings of the UniParty support.  Logan reports that Texas republicans, the Bush wing of the professional republican apparatus that controls Texas politics, recently blocked a state border security effort in order to keep the immigration flow in place.  This is a remarkable interview with details to support the baseline as discussed.  [Video clip]

A constitutional amendment could help fix our broken border.  Currently, Title 42 is the only thing stopping Joe Biden from abandoning any pretense that the U.S. has a southern border.  The invaders are lining up and ready to roll.  The hordes we saw in the first two years of the Biden administration will shrink to insignificance compared to what's about to come.  However, to the extent significant numbers are drawn by the promise of free public education for their children, getting the Supreme Court to reverse a decision mandating free public education for illegal alien children or amending the 14th Amendment might make America much less enticing.

Is Mexico's AMLO behind the million migrant surge into the U.S.?  With Joe Biden's end to the Title 42 pandemic restrictions on asylum applications coming on May 11, as many as a million migrants are massing at the U.S. southern border, preparing to charge on in.  It seems a little odd, actually.  Title 42 had been sparsely enforced by the Bidenites as most migrants, particularly the ones who couldn't be expelled to Mexico based on their countries of origin, got into the states on "parole" anyway, some of them coughing away on COVID, and unlike normal travelers, were exempt from U.S. vaccine requirements, even being allowed to refuse them.  The overwhelming majority, one way or another, got in, which kept the surge surging.  That one little restriction, though, which gave an illegal border crosser a less-than-50% chance of being thrown out as a pandemic risk, ends, and now a million are headed in?  Something about it doesn't entirely make sense, [...]

Title 42 Countdown: Migrants Fly from Around the World to Rush U.S. Border.  Foreign nationals from around the world are flying to northern Mexico to wait for President Joe Biden to end Title 42, one of the few remaining border controls, on May 11 so they can rush the United States-Mexico border.  In 2020, in the midst of the Chinese coronavirus crisis, former President Donald Trump invoked the public health authority known as Title 42 at the border, ensuring that federal immigration officials have been able to quickly return millions of illegal aliens to Mexico over the last three years.

If you can fly all over the world, you're not an economic refugee.

One Million Illegal Alien Migrants Expected to Swarm the U.S. Southern Border.  On or around May 11th, will the U.S. launch the new spring offensive in Ukraine?  Will Fulton County Georgia release unseal their indictment of Donald Trump?  Will Jack Smith release his assault upon the former president?  Will Main Justice finally release, through the USAO in Delaware, the indictment of Hunter Biden?  These are the questions we should ask as approximately 1,000,000 economic migrants are positioned to swarm the U.S. southern border on the same date.  They will need a distraction, a BIG distraction.  What we can anticipate is that on/around May 11th something big will be delivered as part of that distraction.  The people in command and control of the Biden administration will need to coordinate something big to cover for their May 11th removal of Title 42, the public health authority currently being used to slow illegal alien migrants from entering the U.S.

The Editor says...
I predict the government will announce that they've found fire ants on Mars, or the International Space Station will mysteriously explode, or the last remaining chicken farm will go up in smoke (but nobody will have seen anything suspicious and all the surveillance cameras will have failed).  Look, here comes another Chinese spy balloon!  Hey, the GPS stopped working!  Maybe that will be the day VP Harris resigns, or maybe the price of gas will drop like a rock.  Whatever the red herring turns out to be, it will be something that the federal government controls.

Buses of asylum seekers arrive in NYC, migrants housed at former police academy building.  New York City leaders are calling the influx of migrants a crisis situation.  The asylum seekers that arrived in New York City are being housed at the former police academy, which was once used as a training facility, for at least a week.  Four buses arrived there just after midnight early Friday, bussing in families, men, and women.  A fifth arrived later Friday morning.  Less than a dozen men arrived on the bus from Texas with their paperwork in hand, ready to call America home.

New Footage Shows El Paso Engulfed In 'Mass Migration Dumpster Fire'.  On Monday [5/1/2023], White House spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre made an absurd claim: "When it comes to illegal migration, you've seen it come down by more than 90%" under the Biden administration.  And if that was the case, why did a Democrat mayor of a Texas border town declare a state of emergency?  Well, new footage from border town El Paso, Texas, shows a sobering view of a worsening migrant crisis that the Biden administration, liberal media, and progressive politicians have ignored for two years while calling anyone who pointed it out 'racist.'  [Tweet]

This should have been done at least three years ago.
Texas Slows Cross-Border Trucks from Matamoros to a Crawl Amid Immigrant Surge.  In a reprise of a controversial diplomatic pressure tactic against Mexico from last year, Texas Governor Greg Abbott has ordered tedious truck safety inspections once again that have effectively shut down a major commercial trucking artery from Mexico, the Center for Immigration Studies has confirmed.  The deployment of Texas Department of Public Safety vehicle safety inspection officers Tuesday has all but closed the trucking lanes at Veterans International Bridge at Los Tomates leading from Matamoros into Brownsville.  That bridge's two trucking lanes are open daily from 6 a.m. to midnight.  "We're doing 100 percent inspections, which means every truck will be inspected," Texas DPS spokesman Chris Olivares confirmed to CIS on May 3.  "It's indefinite," Olivares said.  "We want to make sure the trucks are safe and they're following state and federal regulations to make sure they are operating safety on Texas roadways."

Several Arrested for Helping Illegal Immigrant Murder Suspect Hide.  Texas authorities have arrested several people who may have helped a man suspected of killing five neighbors evade a manhunt for four days, a local deputy sheriff said on Wednesday, a day after the suspect's capture.  The bloodshed erupted on Friday in Cleveland, Texas, after neighbors asked the suspect to stop firing his semiautomatic rifle in his yard because it was keeping their baby awake.  Instead, the man reloaded, entered the home of the neighbors and killed five, including an 8-year-old boy, officials said.

Biden Orders 1,500 Soldiers to Southern Border ahead of Title 42 Expiration.  President Joe Biden is dispatching 1,500 soldiers to the Southern border to stem the surge of illegal immigrants that are expected to follow next Thursday's expiration of Title 42, a pandemic-era public-health measure that allows Border Patrol to immediately expel illegal immigrants.  The active-duty Army units will assist Border Patrol and will be armed, though they will only be permitted to use their weapons in self-defense.  Following a request by the DHS, the Department of Defense agreed to "provide a temporary increase of an additional 1,500 military personnel, for 90 days, to supplement CBP efforts at the border," an unnamed US official said in a statement provided to CNN.

DPS Video Captures Eco Devastation as Thousands of Migrants Cross Border to Texas.  A video shot by the Texas Department of Public Safety shows the ecological disaster created by the more than 24,000 migrants who crossed the border near Brownsville in just over two weeks.  The video shows the trash and waste left behind by the mostly Venezuelan migrants crossing from Matamoros, Tamaulipas, to Brownsville.  DPS spokesman Lt.  Chris Olivarez provided a video to Breitbart Texas that he shot while walking along the northern bank of the Rio Grande on Friday.  The video captures the images of what is left behind for taxpayers to clean up and remove.

Shut Down the Border or Shut Down Democrat Cities.  The Mayor of New York City can regularly be heard complaining about the strain placed on his city by the flood of illegal aliens shipped to the sanctuary city by red state Governors.  Now the city of Chicago is joining the chorus of Democrat-run localities that advocate for open borders that are now choking on their wish.  While it's fun to watch, it is damaging to America.  As such, it's time to shut down the border until those charged with securing it can put a plan in place to actually do just that.  Honestly, the Biden administration had no intention of securing the border.  Flooding the country with illegal aliens straining state and local budgets is part of the plan — you can't "fundamentally transform" something working, there'd be no point or appetite for it.  Democrats need to overwhelm people and governments, as well as completely crumble the current system in order to sell people on the idea that something "new" is needed.  Of course, that "new" is the old tropes and policies leftists have been imposing and failing at for more than a century, but you can't create a hellish Utopia without breaking a few eggs (or killing 100 million people, as the case may be).  That plan to transform the United States into something it not only has never been, but was expressly never intended to be can only work if what exists now is destroyed.

El Paso Has Fallen After Liberal Open Border Policies Have Turned It Into A 3rd World Country.  As the future of Title 42 remains uncertain, many migrants continue living on the streets of El Paso.  The reason a large group of migrants remain on the street is because some do not have the resources to move out of El Paso on their own while others [do not trust] the help being offered by the city.  [Video clip]

Why Tucker Carlson was Doomed.  Tucker Carlson's program had been on life support since December 18, 2018.  That is when "progressive" Democrats cancelled most of its sponsors.  On December 13, 2018, Tucker Carlson did a segment on the effects of massive, uncontrolled, and often illegal immigration from poor countries.  Tucker showed videos of caravans of illegal immigrants coming to our borders, and of the piles of garbage they left behind.  Tucker explained how this was hurting America in many ways.  He criticized political leaders of both parties and business elites for ignoring the problem. [...] Everything Tucker Carlson said was true, undisputed, and reasonable.  It had all been said many times by many political leaders and economic experts.  In 2016, candidate Donald Trump won widespread, mainstream support by promising to fix these problems.  Trump promised a border wall and strict enforcement of immigration laws.  Tucker Carlson was correct to remind his viewers of how the leaders of both parties were ignoring this critical issue.  However, the Left used Tucker's December 13, 2018 program to begin an orchestrated campaign to eliminate Tucker Carlson's program, and possibly the entire Fox News network, from cable television.

Chicago mayor calls on Texas to cease sending migrants to the city.  Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is urging Texas Gov. Greg Abbott to not follow through with his "inhuman and dangerous" plan to send more migrants and asylum seekers from his southern state to her city.  The outgoing Chicago mayor made her appeal to the Republican governor in a letter Sunday, stating that they are aware Texas is planning as soon as Monday to start sending migrants to Democrat-led cities including Chicago.  "Chicago is a Welcoming City and we collaborate with county, state and community partners to rise to this challenge, but your lack of consideration or coordination in an attempt to cause chaos and score political points has resulted in a critical tipping point in our ability to receive individuals and families in a safe, orderly and dignified way," Lightfoot wrote.

Number of illegal migrants crossing into this border city explodes.  Thousands of migrants have suddenly begun to cross the southern border into Brownsville, Texas.  The city has never seen such numbers of illegal immigrants.  Most of these are from Venezuela.  There have been so many, so quickly that officials in Brownsville issued a disaster declaration last week, doing as other Texas border cities have done when faced with this crisis.  Over 15,000 migrants have illegally crossed the river near Brownsville since last week.  That is a sharp rise from the 1,700 migrants that Border Patrol agents encountered in the first two weeks of April, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials.  Social services are stretched and overnight shelters have to turn people away.

As many as a million migrants mass at the U.S. border for illegal entry.  This week Joe Biden touted a laundry list of immigration carrots and sticks intended to disincentivize illegal immigration at the southern border now that he's lifting the sparsely enforced Title 42 restrictions on May 11.  They were mostly carrots.  The New York Times called them a "new back door on immigration," and explained that its permissiveness went well beyond the lawful congressional parameters for the admission of immigrants.  The response?  More migrants at the border than ever.  They're massing now in record numbers. [...] So based on Biden's weak enforcement and continuous admission and "parole" for all economic migrants with very little education, few skills, and zero knowledge of English, other than the training from NGOs they've had which has instructed them to say 'asylum,' in they come to America.  Joe Biden's roundheeled 'asylum officers' will call all claims "credible fears of persecution" even if the only problem is living in a gang-infested neighborhood, with family members in gangs contributing to it.  With that arrangement, they will all be entitled to live and work here as refugees and asylum seekers, waiting ten years for a court date and working away in the meantime, paying zero to apply for it, and likely to treat that free admission for exactly the price they paid for it.

Biden's new immigration plan: Letting them all in — without the border photos.  Want to apply for asylum in the U.S., but don't want the hassle and expense of a costly border crossing?  No worries, Joe Biden will accommodate.  He's bringing the asylum applications to the migrants.  No need to travel.  Get your asylum application in, in the convenience of your own country and step right into the states on "parole" to await several years for its adjudication, complete with welcome packets telling of all the "free" U.S.-taxpayer paid social services you can get. [...] In the past, refugees were processed in a third country, and asylum claims could only be made from the first safe country of refuge.  Now with Joe Biden bringing the asylum to them, no need to worry about a first safe country of refuge; the world's migrants are free to country-shop for the best deal, some of them having already been granted asylum in Brazil, Chile, and other places, but would prefer to get into the states, based on its better benefit packages and economic opportunity, which is not what asylum is for.

Report: Annual Costs of Illegal Immigration Soars to $150.7 Billion a Year.  A new report by FAIR, The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration, finds that as of 2022, American taxpayers shell out at least $150.7 billion each year to cover the cost of illegal immigration.  Broken down, the data reveals that taxpayers pay $182 billion annually to provide services and benefits to illegal aliens and their dependents.  These costs are offset by about $31 billion in taxes that are collected from the estimated 15.5 million illegal aliens living in the United States, bringing the net cost to $150.7 billion annually.

Biden's theme is "finish the job."  Have you seen the job thus far?  And then there's the situation that started on the southern border almost immediately after Joe Biden issued his first executive orders.  They don't call it the Biden Border Crisis for nothing.  We are now up to more than 6.3 million illegal immigrants that have invaded the country since January 2021. Many were "encountered" and released into America's interior but there have also been more than 1.2 million "gotaways."  (As they are called.)  One record for illegal migration after another has been broken.  And we somehow managed to lose track of at least 85,000 children.  This is a crisis that may have started along the southern border, but it has now spread to every city and state in the nation as the illegal aliens are loaded onto buses and planes and dropped off in places with few resources available to help them.  It's gotten to the point where the Democratic Mayor of New York City is blaming Biden and running up the white flag.

Biden Opens "Back Door" on Immigration, Aims for Hundreds of Thousands of New Arrivals by End of Year.  President Joe Biden, stymied by congressional inaction, has signed an executive order that opens a back door for hundreds of thousands of migrants to enter the United States by the end of the year.  The measure, the New York Times unveiled, expands a previous policy granted to refugees fleeing Ukraine, Haiti, and parts of Latin America.  Using the temporary protected status label, once sought for elimination by former President Donald Trump, the White House hopes to see 360,000 new entrants from Venezuela, Cuba, Nicaragua, and Haiti by the end of 2023.  The move is being made under the guise of attempting to reduce the flood of illegal crossings at the southern border.  The Pew Research Center predicts the policy, if successful, would result in the largest expansion of legal immigration in decades.

Eric Adams: New York City Is Being 'Destroyed' by President Joe Biden's Migrant Crisis.  New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) said New York City is being "destroyed" by President Joe Biden's migrant crisis during a panel discussion in Washington, DC, hosted by the African American Mayors Association.  "The city is being destroyed by the migrant crisis," Adams bluntly stated. [...] Adams seemingly took a shot at other New York City officials, accusing them of not fighting hard enough to get federal resources to the city.

The Editor says...
Does the mayor think New York City is the only place that's being affected?  Has he changed his mind about the wide-open Mexican border?  Why is more federal spending the answer to every problem?

Democrats love importing people to pick their crops.  The Democratic Party appears to be obsessed with the idea that the best way to ensure that crops are picked by the "right" sort of people is to import them from somewhere else.  For decades they fought to keep slavery a going concern — Africans, after all, were apparently the right sort of people to pick cotton.  Now, according to Adam Schiff, we have to ensure an open southern border to ensure that people with a different skin colors remain the primary pickers of crops.  Since cotton is no longer harvested by human hands, we are now talking about fruits and vegetables mainly.  But the principle is the same, apparently.  [Tweet]

Illegal aliens who are LGBTQ 'may not be detained'under Democrats' new bill.  Dozens of Democrats in the House and Senate introduced legislation this week that would make it harder to hold illegal aliens in custody if they qualify as a "vulnerable person," such as those who are gay, lesbian or transgender, who don't speak English, or who meet other definitions of the term under the bill.  The Dignity for Detained Immigrants Act, from Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., and Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., is aimed at setting minimum standards for detention facilities where thousands of illegal aliens are kept as they await processing.  Among other things, it would bar the use of private detention facilities and make sure government-run facilities meet minimum standards as defined by the American Bar Association.

Bush, Obama, Clinton Team Up with American Express to Fly Migrants into American Communities.  A non-governmental organization (NGO) founded by former Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama and backed by a litany of multinational corporations is teaming up with American Express to fly migrants into the United States.  The NGO, called Welcome.US, was initially launched to work with President Joe Biden's administration in resettling some 85,000 Afghans across the U.S. in 2021 and 2022, as Breitbart News reported extensively at the time.  For its Afghan operation, the NGO helped fly close to 20,000 Afghans to American communities funded by millions raised from donations and supported by corporate backers like Walmart, Airbnb, the New York Times, the Business Roundtable, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Starbucks, the Washington Post, Goldman Sachs, Goodwill Industries, Microsoft, and Chobani.

AMLO Tells Mexican People USA is Spying on Them and U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency is Manipulating Media.  Ever since Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez-Obrador confronted Joe Biden in the oval office about energy policy, things have increasingly escalated.  There is going to be a U.S-Mexico confrontation soon.  Mexico (AMLO), along with Hungary (Orban), is a target of the Biden administration for a color revolution, a manipulated uprising to overthrow the government.  It is absolutely not coincidental that Victor Orban and Lopez-Obrador, both spoke out publicly against the President Trump criminal prosecution.  In the geopolitical world the nationalist leaders see exactly what is happening.  In the latest stunning development, Mexican President AMLO calls out the United States Government for spying on the Mexican military.

Texas AG Paxton: Biden Admin.  Is In Partnership With Cartels.  Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has 46 lawsuits against the Biden Administration, many of which have to do with the State's efforts to address the immigration crisis.  [Video clip]

Where Did All the Biden Illegal Immigrants Go?  No one knows exactly how many people have poured across the southwestern U.S. border since President Biden took office, or where they've gone since.  The official number of encounters by Customs and Border Patrol stands at 5.2 million people, logged over the last two full federal fiscal years and fiscal 2023 through March.  But that number is imprecise because it includes repeat encounters with the same people and omits the many who slipped into the country unnoticed by border agents.  Under President Biden, the U.S. smashed past the 200,000 monthly encounters mark for the first time in July 2021 and it has repeatedly topped that record in the months since.  By comparison, in fiscal 2020, which ended a month before Biden's defeat of President Trump, the U.S. averaged 38,174 monthly encounters at the border, according to CBP figures.  Because of an official lack of transparency, all those people and the circumstances by which they have arrived and remained have made it hard to take stock of the historic influx.  Through midnight flights and buses from the border to far-flung locales, the administration has made it difficult to identify where the migrants are now living and receiving services.  Also unclear are the costs associated with the arrivals.

Human tidal wave is waiting for border to open May 11 — Biden has no plan to stop it.  The real, true, and final end of pandemic-era measure "Title 42," which allowed for the quick expulsion of all illegal immigrants crossing the southern border, is nigh.  Set to end May 11, the title was a potent deterrent when former President Donald Trump applied it to almost 90% of all illegal crossing immigrants and far less so under the President, who expelled only 35%.  I predict big trouble is on the way to the southern border, from which I've just returned.  In Juarez, thousands of immigrants are living in abandoned buildings, sleeping on the streets, and many hundreds more a day show up on freight trains.  A human tidal wave is building all over Mexico and farther south.

Biden's Migrants to Enjoy Multi-Billion-Dollar Welfare Payday.  More than a million migrants, whom President Joe Biden's administration has released into the United States through a parole pipeline, could enjoy a multi-billion-dollar welfare payday a few years from now, new analysis suggests.  As Breitbart News reported, since early 2021, Biden's Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has released more than a million migrants into the U.S. interior by awarding them parole — a program initially intended for rare, case-by-case circumstances.  Analysis conducted by the Center for Immigration Studies' George Fishman, a former DHS official from the Trump administration, finds that should many of these migrants awarded parole remain in the U.S. for at least five years, they will become eligible for American taxpayer-funded welfare benefits.

Can We Do Anything About America's Decline?  To have a "border problem," one must have a border.  The United States has no southern border.  Upwards of 7 million illegal entries since the Biden inauguration are proof enough of that tragedy.  Mexico brags that 40 million have come into the United States.  It urges them to vote Democratic.  And it relies on still more illegal entries to ensure yearly increases in its current $60 billion in remittance income sent from its expatriates in the United States.  The donors apparently grow fonder of Mexico — the more they are safely distant from it.  America could close the border tomorrow and actually "make Mexico pay for the wall" by simply slapping a 10 percent export tax on all remittances sent to Mexico.  Or we could make it illegal to send money out of the country if one is receiving federal subsidies and aid.  Or we could fine employers for hiring those who are here illegally.  Or, as a deterrent to future illegal entries, we could immediately deport all who illegally entered and reside in the United States — if they came within the last five years, or if they have a criminal record, or if they are not working and are on public assistance.

Biden Is Even Worse than Obama.  Biden, in reversing Trump-era requirements for migrants to seek asylum in a safe country through which they transited, has opened the flood-gates on third world immigration.  Of course, the vast majority of these asylum cases are without merit and eventually denied.  Most of these people are not legitimate political refugees, but economic ones.  But they're coming here all the same, and if we cannot stop them at the border, what are the odds there will be the political will to deport them when their asylum cases are denied?  And if we can't or won't deport them, how will an already-decrepit economy and fraying culture assimilate all these people?  What will happen to them and their children (as well as our own) as they seek schooling, jobs, and government benefits under the aegis of widespread affirmative action?  The chaos on the border will simply be repeated in a more diffuse way when these paroled migrants end up in the interior.  The border disaster will create problems for decades to come.

Importing Poverty Is Making America Poor.  One of the most irksome talking points anti-borders activists repeat endlessly is that "America is the wealthiest country on Earth."  This is based on data showing the United States has the highest concentration of millionaires and the largest gross domestic product.  There is trouble, however, below that hyper-affluent upper level.  The share of American adults who live in middle-class households has shrunk by 11 percent in the last 50 years.  The gross federal debt sits at an all-time high of over $31 trillion.  China is working aggressively to supplant the United States as the global superpower and is attacking our currency, military supremacy, and access to vital natural resources, among other areas.  Our current leadership seems interested not in reversing America's deterioration, but rather in managing it better than the opposition party.  Now add excessive immigration to these problems.  Instead of "making America stronger," as clueless sanctuary mayors dutifully insist immigration does, today it is only making America poorer and more balkanized.

Joe Biden is the human trafficking president.  Just 50 days into his presidency, human trafficking and smuggling at the southern border have already gotten worse thanks to President Biden.  Reuters reported Wednesday that the Mexican government has assessed "that gangs are diversifying methods of smuggling and winning clients as they eye U.S. measures that will 'incentivize migration.'"  The trafficking of migrants to the United States from Mexico and Central America hoping to win asylum isn't new.  The Trump administration went to great lengths to discourage it by getting those governments to disperse migrant caravans and forcing asylum-seekers to wait in Mexico until their cases could be adjudicated.

Report: Border Crossers Found Living Inside Downtown Chicago Police Station.  Border crossers and illegal aliens, recently bused to the sanctuary city of Chicago, Illinois, from Texas, have been found living inside a downtown police station, local reports confirm.  Since Texas started busing border crossers and illegal aliens to Chicago last year, more than 5,100 new arrivals have landed in the sanctuary city.  Some of those migrants, CWB Chicago reveals, have ended up living in the city's police station.

Migrant remittances to Mexico and Central America are soaring.  With Joe Biden's border surge on, only the "experts" were surprised to learn that remittances increased to the countries that supply the illegal aliens to the U.S. [...] The Mexican government was enabling [illegal immigration], of course but the nationals involved tended to come from Central and South America, rather than Mexico itself.  The country had been badly hit by COVID, meaning many people were thrown out of work there and needed to rely on relatives abroad to send a lifeline, which may explain some of it.  It's also true that not everyone who sends remittances to another country is an illegal alien — many legally present foreign nationals also send remittances to their families back home.  But it's also a fact that the more recently an immigrant has arrived here, the more likely he is to send remittances to relatives back home.

An Act Before Congress.  [Scroll down]  That noxious combination of radicalism and lack of transparency was on display yet again this week when embattled Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas made a scheduled visit to Capitol Hill for questioning by senators.  It only served to reaffirm that we are a nation being led by unserious people who do not prioritize the best interests of America and its citizens.  Among the topics discussed in the hearing was Customs and Border Protection's "CBP One" phone app, which allows would-be illegal aliens from four countries — Venezuela, Cuba, Haiti, and Nicaragua — to sign up to enter our country on an app, and then be processed through ports of entry and paroled into the United States at the rate of 30,000 per month.  Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) cited a Texas Monthly article, which reported that migrants using the app are given no interviews and asked no questions about vulnerabilities they listed in the app, or about why they are seeking asylum in the United States.  Instead, they are simply released into the country on official parole.

Nearly One Out Of Every $10 Sent In Remittance Payments From US To Mexico Is Linked To Crime: REPORT.  Roughly 8% of remittances sent from the U.S. to Mexico are linked to crimes such as money laundering, according to Bloomberg.  The figure adds up to about $4.4 billion of the record $58 billion sent in remittances to Mexico, Bloomberg reported, citing a study by Signos Vitales, a Mexico-based think tank.  The revelation comes as illegal immigration at the southern border of the U.S. surges, with Border Patrol agents encountering more than 250,000 illegal migrants from Mexico between October 2022 and February 2023.  "There has to be an explanation for the astounding increase in the past few years.  It's impressive that it's gone from around $21 billion to nearly $60 billion," Enrique Cardenas, an economics professor heading Signos Vitales, said, according to Bloomberg.  "There are parts that look strange, things that don't happen in the rest of the country."  Increasing amounts of the cash are coming from areas of the U.S. that lack large Mexican populations, according to Bloomberg.  For example, Minnesota has the third-largest amount of remittances going to Mexico, despite having a low Mexican population of around 200,000.

U.S. starts flying migrants caught crossing Canadian border south to Texas.  As migrants cross illegally into the U.S. from Canada at historically high levels, U.S. officials have begun flying migrants apprehended at the northern border south to Texas.  To date, at least two flights — one on March 13 to Harlingen, Texas, and another on March 21 to El Paso — have departed from Plattsburgh, New York, carrying a total of 82 migrants expelled under the Covid ban known as Title 42, a Customs and Border Protection spokesperson told NBC News.

Warning: every dollar you donate to the Red Cross is bringing America to her knees.  Recently, The Daily Caller published a bombshell story involving The Red Cross that should've gotten a lot more attention than it did.  That's why it was great to see respected filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza discussing the scandal on his podcast recently.  So, it turns out that The Red Cross is actually helping illegals make their way into the United States.  The Daily Caller piece claims The Red Cross is passing out "pamphlets" to migrants in Mexico, who are making their way over illegally.

Illegal immigration to cost New Yorkers $10 billion in 2023, US $150B: report.  President Biden's "porous" border policies are expected to cost New York taxpayers nearly $10 billion in 2023, a new watchdog report claims.  The conservative Federation for American Immigration Reform's March study found New Yorkers will pay $9.9 billion all told for various federal, state and local government programs that serve more than 1 million illegal immigrants and asylum-seeking migrants in the Empire State.  New York taxpayers will shell out $4.65 billion for education-related expenses, $3.5 billion for health care and welfare expenditures including food assistance programs, and $1.75 billion for costs related to immigration-related law enforcement such as caring for unaccompanied minors, the report breakdown states.  It also estimates that the border crisis is costing US taxpayers more than $150 billion annually — a 30% jump since their 2017 study.

Texas Border Sector Reports 10K Known Border Crossers in Single Week.  Del Rio Sector Border Patrol officials report that more than 10,000 migrants are known to have crossed the border from Mexico into Texas during the past week.  The report includes more than 6,200 apprehensions and nearly 4,000 known got-aways.  Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Jason D. Owens tweeted a report for activities in his sector between March 5 and 11.  The twee reveals the apprehension of 6,218 migrants.  In addition, another 3,928 migrants are classified as known got-aways.

Texas' unique plan to close the border looks promising.  As the Biden border crisis grinds on into its third year, residents along the southern border are growing increasingly frustrated and, in some cases, frightened.  That's particularly true in Texas, where legislators are clearly tired of waiting for the White House to fix Joe Biden's disastrous policies and have decided to take matters into their own hands.  The state legislature is reportedly finalizing some new laws that would empower state law enforcement to take a much more active and aggressive role in securing the border and ensuring the safety of the Texans living in the affected areas.  The plan will potentially include an entirely new police force dedicated to blocking illegal migrants' access to the Lone Star State.

Here's another expensive study to state the obvious:
Rice University Study: Trump Policies Cut Illegal Immigration, Biden Policies Encourage Inflow.  Former President Donald Trump's policies at the United States-Mexico border helped deter illegal immigration, while President Joe Biden's policies are encouraging record-setting inflows, a new study suggests.  The study, conducted by Rice University's Baker Institute for Public Policy, compares the size and scale of migrant caravans under Trump versus those that have arrived under the Biden administration.  Trump's policies, which included the Remain in Mexico program, eliminating the Catch and Release process, and imposing the Title 42 public health authority, served as a deterrent for border crossers and illegal aliens, the study found.

I Went to the Southern Border at 3 A.M. This Is What I Saw.  It was 3 a.m. and a line of about 40 illegal aliens stretched along a section of the border wall waiting to be transported to the local processing center.  Behind the group stood another 50 people who had crossed the border illegally into Yuma County, Arizona.  A large white bus full of illegal aliens had just departed for the Border Patrol station in Yuma, about 185 miles southwest of Phoenix, and would return in an hour to take the next 40.  "Your country of origin?" I asked, moving down the line.  Peru, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Colombia, Georgia, China, India, and Cameroon — nine nations were represented in a group of 50 illegal aliens.  Border Patrol confirmed that one of the women in the other line came from Russia.  Some smiled as they shared where they were from while others averted their eyes from the camera, looking down.

DCNF Reporter Describes How 'Millions' Of Migrants 'Pour Over' The Border Under Biden.  A Daily Caller News Foundation reporter said Friday "millions" of people have poured over the U.S. border since President Joe Biden took office.  "Under the Biden administration, we've seen millions of illegal immigrants pour over the border," DCNF investigative reporter Jennie Taer told Sky News Australia host James Morrow.  U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) encountered over 2.3 million migrants in fiscal year 2022, while another 600,000 migrants evaded CBP that fiscal year, Fox News reported.  CBP data noted that 1.66 million encounters took place in Fiscal Year 2021.

The Red Cross is giving immigrants detailed maps showing them where to cross the border into the United States.  Now, nominally you could argue that the map isn't facilitating illegal immigration; rather, it just shows migrants the points where they can gain legal, above-the-board entry into the U.S.  But, I mean, come on.  What do we think this detailed, routed, resource-intensive map is actually for?

Red Cross Packets Show Migrants Where To Cross The US Border.  The American Red Cross has maps and guides for migrants to make the dangerous journeys to the U.S.-Mexico border, according to documents exclusively obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation.  The map, which is part of a packet stamped with the International Committee of the Red Cross and American Red Cross logos, shows a list of resources, including hotels, clinics and shelters where migrants can get support in Mexico and Central America.  The maps include clearly defined lines leading to cities along the U.S. border.  The organization also has a guide to "self care" along the journey, which includes tips on how to survive the desert and disease, how to safely jump on trains, and how to obtain contraceptives.

Biden calls for tax hikes to pay for more illegal alien 'processing'.  How this for a stinker of a deal for American taxpayers?  Joe Biden is proposing to hike taxes on Americans in his $6.8 trillion budget plan to pay for more free services to "help" foreigners who have crossed illegally into the U.S. [...] The 960 new personnel would solely consist of Border Patrol agents to catch illegal border crossers, not to send them back but to hand them over to additional Homeland Security personnel to "process" on an industrial conveyor-belt scale, sending them on to their destinations of choice throughout the U.S., work permits in hand, supposedly to await their asylum hearings, since all asylum claims are treated as equally serious and exceptional.

Mexican president threatens to meddle in US elections with 'information campaign' against Republicans.  Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on Thursday threatened to launch an "information campaign" in the U.S. against Republicans, telling Mexicans and Hispanics not to vote for them unless U.S. lawmakers change their treatment of Mexico — an apparent threat of election interference by the head of state in response to U.S. calls for action against cartels smuggling fentanyl across the border.  "Starting today we are going to start an information campaign for Mexicans who live and work in the United States and for all Hispanics to inform them of what we are doing in Mexico and how this initiative by the Republicans, in addition to being irresponsible, is an offense against the people of Mexico, a lack of respect for our independence, our sovereignty," he said.

RNC, Vermont GOP Sue City Of Winooski For Letting Noncitizens Vote On Spending State Funds.  On Thursday, the Republican National Committee and the Vermont Republican Party announced they are suing the city of Winooski, Vermont for allowing noncitizens to vote in school board elections and on education budget referendums.  Two concerned Winooski residents are also a part of the lawsuit.  The lawsuit comes after the Vermont Supreme Court ruled against the RNC's previous lawsuit asking judges to find noncitizen voting unconstitutional.  While the court argued the Vermont Constitution did not categorically bar noncitizen residents from voting in municipal elections, it did find that votes with statewide implications would require United States citizenship, an RNC spokeswoman told The Federalist.  That is why the RNC's lawsuit is narrower in scope this time.  It only argues that allowing noncitizens to vote on Winooski's school board members and education budget is unconstitutional.

Biden Administration's 'Catch and Release' Border Policy Struck Down by US Judge.  The federal government's program of releasing many illegal immigrants rather than holding them until their cases are resolved violates federal law, a U.S. judge ruled on March 8.  "The evidence establishes that Defendants have effectively turned the Southwest Border into a meaningless line in the sand and little more than a speedbump for aliens flooding into the country," U.S. District Judge Judge T. Kent Wetherell, a Trump appointee, said in the ruling.  Wetherell struck down Alternatives to Detention, a program through which President Joe Biden's administration has released more than one million aliens into the U.S. interior.  Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody, a Republican, sued the government in 2021 over the policy, arguing the catch-and-release policy violated federal law.  Biden administration officials have claimed they had the discretion not to hold immigrants and that Florida lacked standing.

Joe Biden Doesn't Seem Willing to Take the Most Important Step - Declaring the Cartels Terrorist Organizations.  Under Trump, the focus on fighting the fentanyl crisis was on China and the chemicals coming in that make fentanyl.  But at the time, the chemicals began shifting to Mexico and the cartels were taking over the majority of the production south of the border.  So while Trump was focused on his wall and beefing up security, his administration was focused on illegal border crossings, and not paying as much attention to seemingly legit crossings bringing pills into America.  And now, under Biden, it's a mix of an open-border policy (in all but name), lack of commitment to protecting American interests from the cartels and from China, and a bumbling, reactive administration with seemingly no plans, just responses.

Federal Judge Deep-Sixes Biden's 'Catch-and-Release' of Illegal Migrants.  A federal judge in Florida has shut down President Joe Biden's catch-and-release rules — and his quasi-legal "parole pathway."  "For the most part, the Court finds in favor of Florida because, as detailed below, the evidence establishes that [Biden's deputies] have effectively turned the Southwest Border into a meaningless line in the sand," district court Judge T. Ken Wethererell, a Donald Trump appointee, wrote.

Federal Judge Rules Biden Border Policies Unlawful, Make Border "Meaningless".  After the Biden regime released tens of thousands of migrants into the United States by using humanitarian parole, a federal judge in Florida put the administration on blast and ruled that its actions were unlawful.  As the Biden administration worsens the country's immigration crisis, it has been using parole as a tool to prevent overcrowding at the U.S.-Mexico border.  This allows migrants to enter the U.S. more quickly than they already were able to.  A lawsuit was filed by Republican Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody alleging that the administration's use of parole at the border is illegal, as it is supposed to be used on a "case-by-case basis for urgent humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit."

Each Migrant Costs NYC $10,000 a Month.  Want to know why Mayor Eric Adams is panicking?  The numbers are ugly.  New York City has no shortage of social problems, but Biden's open borders crisis is really taking a bite out of the Big Apple. [...] American children suffer so Biden's open borders can boost Democrat numbers.  That's what this is about.

NYC spends nearly $370 daily on each asylum seeker household.  New York City on average spends about $363 a day on each asylum seeker household receiving services in city shelters and emergency relief centers and is on track to spend a total of $1.4 billion by the end of the fiscal year in June, Office of Emergency Management Commissioner Zach Iscol said during a recent City Council hearing.  The cost for the "asylum seeker crisis" could double to $2.8 billion in the next fiscal year, Iscol told the panel during a hearing last week.  He said the city cannot maintain that support.  "The city is at the end of its resources.  This is not sustainable," Iscol said. "It's why we have asked the state, it's why we've asked the federal government for support."

The 76 congressmen who demand unlimited illegal immigration.  Recently a large group of US Congressmen signed a letter to Joe Biden, demanding that he make it easier for illegal aliens to enter and stay in the USA.  The signers are ten US Senators, sixty-six US Representatives, and one non-voting delegate from Washington DC.  Below is a list of the seventy-six voting delegates who signed the letter. [...]

Life Among the Ruins.  A once secure border no longer exists.  Joe Biden and Alejandro Mayorkas simply demolished it and allowed 6-7 million foreign nationals to cross illegally into the United States without audits — to the delight of their apparent constituent, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.  What would shame a Biden or Mayorkas?  What would change their minds?  Billions of dollars spent on social services for the lawbreaking at the expense of the American poor?  Would 100,000 annual lethal overdoses — 12 times more than those who died over 20 years in Iraq and Afghanistan combined — from drugs that flow across the open border sway them?  Or would it take 200,000, or 300,000 deaths before Joe Biden relented and ceased his chuckling? What does a people do when its highest officials simply renounce their oaths of office and refuse to enforce laws they don't like?  Everyone knows the border will eventually have to become secure, but none have any idea whether it will take another 20, 30, or 50 million illegal entrants and 1 million more fentanyl deaths to close it.

Biden authorities diddle around without charging illegals who shot a bald eagle for supper.  When someone harms or destroys a bald eagle in this country, the federal penalties are swift and draconian.  Like it or not, it's the law.  But there seems to be an exception to it now: When the perpetrator is an illegal. [...] So there they were, all set to cook and eat the national bird for dinner.  It calls to mind that over in Venezuela, the locals took to eating zoo animals to stave off hunger.  But these guys apparently had money for an expensive gun, which rather suggests that the motive wasn't exactly hunger.  The U.S. bird is an internationally well-known symbol, and well, illegal border crossers do what they want.

Quietly, a Huge Potential Victory for Border Security.  The Biden administration has bowed to reality and is proposing to radically alter asylum policies at the border.  On February 21, without much fanfare or notice, the Biden administration proposed a rule that endorses the Trump administration policy regarding asylum seekers at the border.  If enacted, no longer would asylum seekers automatically be admitted to the U.S.  The new rule would deny asylum to anyone who crosses the southern border without authorization after traveling through a third country on their way to the U.S.  Trump was called a "monster" for trying to enact this rule, even though the third-country requirement is consistent with U.S. law.  It just had never been used before.  Biden has finally embraced reality at the border.

Biden's DHS Funnels $350M to Illegal Aliens Released into U.S. Communities.  President Joe Biden's Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is funneling hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to border crossers and illegal aliens directly released into American communities after arriving at the United States-Mexico border.  This week, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced that the agency would be spending some $350 million on the Emergency Food and Shelter Program, specifically to fund support services for border crossers and illegal aliens arriving in various U.S. towns and cities.

Arizona Sheriff: Migrants Tell Us They Crossed the Border Illegally 'Because Joe Biden Said We Could'.  The Republican-controlled House Homeland Security Committee held a hearing Tuesday to examine the Border Crisis, hearing testimony from various witnesses, including Rebecca Kiessling, a grieving mother whose two sons died of fentanyl overdoses.  Other witnesses included Pinal County, Ariz., Sheriff Mark Lamb; Robert Trenschel, a Yuma, Arizona hospital executive; and David J.  Bier Associate Director of Immigration Studies at the CATO Institute.  The hearing, titled, "Every State is a Border State: Examining Secretary Mayorkas' Border Crisis," focused on how the Biden administration's open border policies have led to a deadly spike in illegal narcotics smuggling.  According to Sheriff Lamb, when officials ask illegal immigrants why they crossed the border into the United States, they answer "because Joe Biden said we could."  "This is the reality of what we deal with every day," he stated.

Migrant encounters at southern border hit 1,000,000 mark for FY 2023, outpacing prior year: sources.  Migrant encounters at the southern border have already surpassed the one million mark for Fiscal Year 2023, multiple Customs and Border Protection (CBP) sources tell Fox News, marking an unprecedented pace for encounters.  As of Friday [2/24/2023], the total migrant encounters at the border were at 1,008,217 for the fiscal year, which began in October.  Of those, 87.8% were single adults.  Just 328,454 were expelled under Title 42 — the pandemic-era protocol that allows border agents to rapidly expel border crossers.  There were more than 1.7 million encounters overall in FY 2021 and over 2.3 million in FY 2022.  The first months of FY 2023 have outpaced those of the prior fiscal year.  This time last year, numbers for FY22 through March 1 were 839,819 — well under the 1 million mark.

Some Basic Questions Democrats Can't (Or Won't) Answer.  On the border, I'll make this quick: Why do you call illegal aliens "migrants"?  "Migrants" migrate, it's right there in their name.  The millions of people flooding across the southern border at your invitation and urging aren't planning on going anywhere; if they aren't deported, they'll never leave.  They, therefore, are illegal aliens.  Words matter, or so you people who call everyone a bigot who refers to a guy in a dress as "he," so why don't they matter at the border?  Migrants enter the country for specific work, generally the harvesting of crops, then go home after completion with their pay.  Illegal aliens stay, avail themselves of our social safety net — clog emergency rooms, slow down the education process of American kids while costing the system an untold fortune, receive welfare benefits, etc. — and will never, short of a mega lottery win, be a net benefit to society, even if they were made legal.

Cloward & Piven Are Laughing All The Way To The Welfare Agency.  If the Cloward-Piven Strategy is new to you, Fred Elbel's "Cloward-Piven strategy — fundamentally transforming America" does an outstanding job breaking it down into bite-size pieces. [...] Time marches on and the Cloward-Piven strategy, as Elbel puts it, "remains an active instrument of change in America.  Ultimately, it is the tool by which multicultural elites aim to "fundamentally transform America."  To fully appreciate the genius of the strategy, just look around at the other pressure points of American society being clogged and hamstrung by the nonstop avalanche of C-P red tape. [...] The southern — and now northern — borders are beyond overwhelmed.  Border Patrol agents are taken away from the flood of illegals and reassigned to paper-pushing, babysitting, and chauffeuring gigs.  And the flood continues unabated.  As the immigrant invasion continues — over 5 million by current estimates — local support structures and systems are overwhelmed: schools, housing, law enforcement, retail outlets are unable to cope.  The damage is not reserved to the systems. Visit a local hospital E.R.  And not just in towns in Texas, Arizona, Oklahoma, and California.  Identical issues around the country are similarly effected as "got-aways" and exported aliens make their way to Chicago, New York, Miami, L.A., San Francisco.  All those cities already had overcrowding problems left over from the COVID-19 "pandemic."  Crime stats are skyrocketing, primarily in Democrat-governed cities and blue states.

'Migrant' shot dead by Arizona rancher, 73, was cartel drug smuggler, says ex Border Patrol chief.  The migrant shot dead by an Arizona rancher on his land last month was likely a cartel drug smuggler or scout, according to a former Border Patrol chief, who says the area is known for 'violence'.  George Alan Kelly, 73, was arrested on charges of first degree murder for shooting Gabriel Cuen-Butimea on January 30 at his home.  That charge has now been downgraded to a second degree murder charge.  He denies the murder, insisting he only ever fired warning shots when he saw what he perceived to be a gang of cartel smugglers on his land.

More Than A Dozen Illegal Immigrants Found In Texas Storm Drain.  Authorities discovered 17 illegal immigrants in a storm drain in the border city of El Paso, Texas, the sector's acting Border Patrol chief said Wednesday [2/22/2023] on Twitter.  "Working together, #ElPaso Station agents & the El Paso Fire Department @EPTXFire, rescue 17 migrants from a dangerous storm drain tunnel.  After making an illegal entry into the U.S., the migrants attempted to evade Border Patrol detection by utilizing this hazardous tunnel. @CBP," U.S. Border Patrol Acting Chief Peter Jaquez for the El Paso sector wrote.  Federal authorities have seen record surges in illegal immigration at the southern border in recent months.  U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) encountered more than 2.3 million migrants in fiscal year 2022 alone.

Migrant hotels fatten Manhattan's real estate interests — and crush its small businesses.  Who says Democrats are the party of the little guy?  Turns out that Joe Biden's open borders, which has led to the creation of migrant hotels in central Manhattan, has been a money-spigot for the city's real estate interests — and hammered the city's little-guy small businesses.  And take a wild guess as to which ones kick back campaign donations to Democrats. [...] By importing tens of thousands of indigent foreigners into the U.S., who otherwise would not be here, the Democrats' favorite constituency, the rich, are automatically bolstered, coming at the expense of the small fry.  The migrants amount to perfect pawns through the funnel of city contracts because no expense is spared on migrants by the state and local governments.  That cash goes to local real estate interests at full fare with no bulk discounts given to the city.  All the same, it's draining the city coffers.  But instead of cutting back on services for migrants as the money runs low, New York's Mayor Eric Adams is calling for federal funds to keep the payments to the big guys, and he may eventually get them.  As for the small business owners who rely on the tourist trade, well, tough luck.  The migrants get free meals paid for by the city, in quantities so huge they reportedly waste tons of it daily.  That doesn't matter to the big guys, who get paid up front.

Now We Know Why Mayorkas Won't Secure the Border.  We have the worst border crisis in history, and the Biden administration insists that our southern border is secure.  This disconnect between the narrative and reality is the reason why Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is currently facing potential impeachment.  Yet, after watching his interview with CNN's Chris Wallace, it all makes sense.  "Our goal is to achieve operational control of the border, to do everything that we can to support our personnel with the resources, the technology, the policies that really advance the security of the border, and do not come at the cost of the values of our country," Mayorkas told Wallace.  "The law needs to be changed if it does not either meet our highest ideals or actually proves to be functional in the service of those ideals."  Mayorkas remains defiant in the face of Republican efforts to oust him, but when Wallace pressed him on his insistence that the border is secure, he gave a very telling answer.

New York Businesses Suffer Because of Migrant Hotels.  The Gateway Pundit reported that more than 36,400 illegal migrants have arrived in NYC in the last few months and city taxpayers have spent millions caring for these invaders.  NYC officials have placed them in at least 14 hotels at zero cost.  Felipe Rodriguez, a whistleblower who has been an employee at the Row Hotel since 2017, shared his concerns with Fox News, "The chaos that we see at the Row today is compiled by migrants being drunk, drinking all day, smoking marijuana, consuming drugs, and domestic violence, uh, people having sex in the stairs, young people, teenagers, they use the fire exit stairs to go in there and do that they do."

Report: Joe Biden Weighs Expanding Foreign Competition Against Working Class Americans.  President Joe Biden is weighing expanding foreign competition in the labor market against working class Americans by offering green cards to foreign visa workers, a new report suggests.  An exclusive report from Fox News's Adam Shaw reveals that Biden is considering allowing foreign workers on H-2A agricultural visas and H-2B non-agricultural visas to apply for and secure green cards to remain permanently in the United States labor market.

Biden's Labor Market: 1.9 Million Fewer Americans Working, 2 Million Foreign Workers Funneled into U.S. Jobs.  At the end of 2022, 1.9 million fewer Americans were working than in 2019 before the Chinese coronavirus pandemic while President Joe Biden's administration has funneled two million additional foreign workers into United States jobs.  A new analysis from the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) shows that in the fourth quarter of 2022, close to two million fewer native-born Americans were working in jobs compared to the same time in 2019 while two million foreign-born workers have been added to the workforce compared to the same time period.

Impeaching Mayorkas is a Waste of Time.  House Speaker, Kevin McCarthy and other House Republicans are floating a motion to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, as if that would end the invasion of millions of foreign nationals at our Southern border.  How does that work, exactly, when this open-border agenda goes right to the top.  If Mayorkas is removed, wouldn't President Biden just appoint another open-borders guy to fill his slot?  If House Republicans do any impeaching, to stop the lawless flood of foreigners into the United States, it seems they would need to impeach the official Border Czar and her Boss — both of them, together.  While it may be a first, 'dual impeachment' of both president and vice president is not such an outlandish idea when you consider that the Democrats impeached Donald Trump twice.

U.S. Supreme Court cancels arguments in Republican bid to keep border expulsions.  The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday canceled scheduled arguments in a case in which Republicans sought to keep in place a policy introduced under former President Donald Trump that has let American officials quickly expel hundreds of thousands of migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border.  The policy, known as Title 42, was implemented by Trump's administration in March 2020 - early in the COVID-19 pandemic - as a measure tied to a public health emergency.

State Planning to Move 658 Migrants to Vacant Kmart on Chicago's Southwest Side.  The Illinois Department of Human Services is preparing to move 658 recent migrant arrivals into a former Kmart in Chicago for temporary shelter, WTTW News has learned.  The 100,000-square-foot store has sat vacant at the corner of 71st Street and Pulaski Road on the city's Southwest Side since 2016.  Sources said the migrants — mostly asylum seekers — will be relocated from the suburbs, where they are currently staying at hotels.  According to documents WTTW News obtained, the site was selected because of its nearby resources and because it is in a welcoming neighborhood.

Migrants are Paying $10,000 to "Financial Sponsors" to Sponsor Them.  Who could have possibly predicted this entirely inevitable outcome? [...] ["] Pedro Yudel Bruzon was looking for someone in the U.S. to support his effort to seek asylum when he landed on a Facebook page filled with posts demanding up to $10,000 for a financial sponsor.  It's part of an underground market that's emerged since the Biden administration announced it would accept 30,000 immigrants each month arriving by air from Venezuela, Cuba, Nicaragua and Haiti.  Applicants for the humanitarian parole program need someone in the U.S., often a friend or relative, to promise to provide financial support for at least two years.["]  The arrivals have enough money to pay for financial sponsors, but they have no intention of reporting how much money they have because they want to be on government benefits as soon as they can.  Financial sponsorship is supposed to prevent the arrivals from becoming a public charge, but the whole thing is a scam because that's the purpose of the exercise.

Biden downs more balloons — that monitor the border.  This story hasn't drawn many headlines (for obvious reasons), but it's the latest in a series of very clear signals that not only is the Biden administration not making any effort to close the southern border, but it is actively working to make the job of the Border Patrol harder.  The CBP had been operating a dozen blimps with cameras to monitor some of the more remote regions of the border.  For the most part, they don't actively help in capturing illegal aliens who enter the country, but they do allow Customs and Border Patrol to monitor and count the number of "gotaways" that make it into the interior of the country.  Last year, however, eight of the balloons were eliminated.  And now the final four are being taken offline.

Biden Finally Finds a Balloon He Wants To Take Down: Surveillance Blimps at the Southern Border.  After refusing for days last week to shoot down China's spy balloon, the Biden administration finally found airships they are happy to take down: surveillance blimps that monitor the southern border.  The Biden administration is taking the blimps, which allow agents to detect illegal migrant activity over long periods of time, out of commission due to funding cuts, Fox News reported.  While there were 12 surveillance balloons in operation last year, only four remain.  Customs and Border Protection agents told Fox that the removal of the blimps, known in the agency as their "Eyes in the Sky," will drastically hinder their ability to track illegal immigrants who evade detention at the border.  As of January, there were 1.2 million "gotaways" since Biden took office.

The Most Infuriating Part of Benedict Biden's SOTU Speech Relies on Americans Being Stupid.  The border crisis in 100% Joe Biden's fault.  You can argue that congressional Democrats have a hand in it.  You can point to feckless policies by governments in border states.  But at the end of the day the reason that we are experiencing the worst invasion of illegal aliens that our country has ever seen is because the Biden-Harris regime has opened the borders.  They can claim they haven't.  They would be lying if they did.  Every aspect of their border policy encourages illegal aliens to cross.  Everything they've done to remove border security has worsened the flow of drugs and other illegal merchandise.  They have harmed this nation immeasurably, all the while putting innocent children in danger as they're raped and trafficked throughout their journey to the border.

World's tallest Holiday Inn booked solid by Eric Adams for NYC migrants.  New York City is converting the world's tallest Holiday Inn hotel into the Big Apple's sixth mega-shelter for its surging migrant population, Mayor Eric Adams announced Tuesday.  The deal will supply 492 rooms for adult families and single women, Adams said in a statement.  "With more than 44,000 asylum seekers arriving in the last 10 months alone, we have helped provide shelter and support to nearly as many asylum seekers as the number of New Yorkers we already had in our shelter system when we first came into office," he said.  Terms of the contract weren't announced, but The Post reported last month that the owner of the 50-story hotel in Manhattan's Financial District had an agreement in place to charge NYC Health + Hospitals a nightly rate of $190 per room.

Hmmm... What other directly adjacent country can we send them to?
Some migrants bused to Canada already heading back to NYC.  Blame Canada.  Overrun by asylum-seeking migrants sent to the city from southern border states, New York has been offering free bus tickets to the Canadian border for migrants wanting to start a new life up north, but some are turning straight back around.  Ilze Thielmann, the director of nonprofit Team TLC — which has been organizing busses to Plattsburgh, where there is an unofficial crossing to Montreal — said the reality isn't as rosy as people expect.  She told CBS:  "They think that there are all these jobs up there.  They think they're going to be able to get asylum very easily up there and that's just not the case."  The [New York] Post first reported about the controversial program last week, with migrants receiving free tickets at the Port Authority bus terminal courtesy of charities funded by taxpayers.

New York Taxpayers Give $2.1 Billion to Illegal Immigrants with Large Sums Lining Pockets of Landlords.  New York taxpayers spent $2.1 billion on a program to support illegal immigrants, with much of the money going to landlords, a recent report from the Urban Institute reveals.  The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) explains that the report from the Urban Institute centered around the Excluded Workers Fund (EWF), which provided funds to illegal immigrants who had been excluded from unemployment insurance programs due to their illegal status.  Much of the money ended up in the hands of landlords.  The EWF had two benefit levels:  a one-time payment of $15,600, which CIS notes was received by 99 percent of beneficiaries, or $3,200 for the other beneficiaries.  CIS also clarifies, "Those with the smaller amounts did not have to meet a different set of requirements; rather, they simply had less plausible applications."

NYC and Illegal Aliens Quit on Each Other, City Now Sending Them to Border.  Liberals are fond of saying they are for welcoming illegal aliens and for sanctuary cities.  But when those illegal aliens are sent to sanctuary cities like New York or liberal holiday bastions like Martha's Vineyard, then suddenly you get meltdowns and accusations that shipping people there is "human trafficking."  That's what liberals accused Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis of when he shipped just fifty people to Martha's Vineyard.  NYC Mayor Eric Adams threw fits when he didn't even get anywhere near the numbers that have been flooding into smaller less equipped border towns in Texas.  Now in what has to be a true exercise in hilarious irony, it looks like both NYC and the migrants have had enough of each other and NYC is engaging in a little "human trafficking" of its own.

Rancher, 73, is charged with murder on his Arizona land after shooting dead Mexican, 48, who had history of illegal crossings into US and multiple deportations.  An Arizona rancher has been charged with first-degree murder and had his bail set at a whopping $1million for fatally shooting a Mexican citizen on his property.  George Alan Kelly, 73, was arrested following the January 30 fatal shooting of Gabriel Cuen-Butimea, 48, on his ranch in Kino Springs, just a mile and a half north of the US-Mexico border.  Authorities are still investigating the fatal shooting, with the Santa Cruz County Sheriff's chief deputy saying it does not appear that Kelly knew Cuen-Butimea ahead of the shooting.

In New York City, migrants become a hot potato, passed to Canada.  For all of New York Mayor Eric Adams's whining about migrants rolling into his sanctuary city, inflicting unbearable costs onto taxpayers, he's quietly decided to play the same game the Texas border cities are playing.  He's sending the migrants to someplace else. [...] So Canada's the new destination of choice for the much-passed-around migrants.  New York City, following an absurd money-is-no-object policy of free housing for all who ask for it, found it couldn't give migrants the kind of housing to which they were accustomed, when it rescinded its free Times Square hotel rooms to single male migrants trashing the joints there, and tried to move them into communal housing in "faraway" western Brooklyn, complete with three hots and a cot, plus free transportation to Manhattan.  That was nothing compared to the room service and free laundry they were getting in central Manhattan on a prime real estate location, so after a period of protests and squatting in the New York winter, they are now looking for greener pastures, with New York City confident that Canada will hand it out.

The scenery in Canada in February will be a real eye-opener for those who were living in Central America a few weeks ago.

Migrants abandon NYC for Canada with taxpayer-funded bus tickets.  Disgruntled migrants fed up with the Big Apple's crime and grime are taking off to the Great White North — on bus rides paid for by New York taxpayers, The [New York] Post has learned.  National Guard soldiers have been helping distribute tickets at the Port Authority Bus Terminal in Manhattan to migrants who want to head upstate before crossing into Canada, several migrants said.  Venezuelan native Raymond Peña and his family arrived at a gas-station bus stop in Plattsburgh, NY — about 20 miles south of the Canadian border — at 4 a.m.  Sunday.  "The military gave me and my family free bus tickets," Peña said.  "I am going to Canada for a better quality of life for my family."  A National Guard source confirmed that soldiers at the bus terminal were directing migrants to workers who hand out the free tickets.

They're not fed up with the Democrats who invited the whole world to cross the Mexican border, but...
NYC residents are just about fed up with the migrants.  Officials in New York City finally managed to clear the mob of illegal migrants who had been protesting inside and in front of the Watson Hotel in Manhattan this week.  Encouraged by liberal activists, the migrants were fighting the plan to move them to a new shelter that was established in Brooklyn.  The protest was taking place in and around the formerly luxurious hotel that they had completely trashed.  Some of the aforementioned activists were cheering the migrants on, but as the New York Post editorial board pointed out yesterday, a very different effect was being observed among members of the local community.  The city has been emptying its coffers to give these illegal aliens free meals and fancy hotel rooms that previously cost upwards of $300 per night, and the migrants responded by trashing the neighborhood and refusing to clear out once new housing was arranged.  Many in the community are rightly "fuming" over this and growing fed up with the situation.

Overpopulation Via Immigration Is a Threat to America's Environment.  America is overpopulated.  Unchecked population growth over the last 70 years, driven by immigration rather than a healthy birth rate, now poses a serious ecological threat in the American West and a monumental social and political challenge in the rest of the country.  Since the passage of the Hart-Cellar Act in 1965, which radically overhauled American immigration policy to favor third-world migrants, tens of millions of additional human beings legally and illegally entered the country.  Pew Research estimates that without the Hart-Cellar Act, the United States would have had 72 million fewer people as of 2015.  That would have been a much better America.

Washington Post editorial board: Migrants are gaming the asylum system.  In this case the news isn't the message it's the messenger.  You don't hear a leading newspaper state the obvious about the immigration crisis every day, certainly not like this. [...] I could fault the Post for a few things here.  First, the system isn't "evolving" into this, it has already evolved.  It started evolving years ago during the Trump administration and for the past two years it has simply been growing at a tremendous rate as more and more people looking for a better life realize the back door of a bogus asylum claim is always open.  But why criticize when there's so much here that doesn't usually wind up in a paper like the [P]ost, i.e. the fact that this parallel system is a magnet drawing people in and the fact that people with weak cases get what they want regardless of the procedural outcome because no one ever makes them leave.  Maybe if this sort of information was included in every story on this topic, Americans would begin to understand what is happening and why.

Biden's 'Day Of Judgement' Awaits.  Illegal immigration is a de facto "invasion" of hordes of unvetted and undocumented people from all over the world who are pouring into our country by the millions!  Biden's policy has been no immigration laws need to be applied; just come right in courtesy of the man occupying the White House.  More than 5 million people from 2020 to year to date have not only crossed our southern border illegally, but many were even escorted over and flown all over the U.S.  Now our northern border is being invaded.  Anyone who disrespects or denigrates a country's borders has no business being in a top leadership position.  The leader who ignores his country's laws and allows illegal aliens to invade and occupy his country can only be called a traitor.

Who could not have predicted this?
Migrants turn NYC hotel into violent, drug-infested 'free-for-all': employee.  A once-trendy Manhattan hotel has become a wild "free-for-all" of sex, drugs and violence after the city began housing migrants there, an employee claimed Tuesday [1/31/2023].  Row NYC worker Felipe Rodriguez — who told The Post earlier this month that migrants were throwing away "tons" of prepared food at the hotel — said the facility has now descended into anarchy.  "Chaos, total chaos," Rodriguez told "Fox & Friends" when asked to describe conditions at the hotel. "There's no accountability.  There is no daily supervision to show these people that ... 'You don't destroy your hotel.  You are only there temporarily.  This is not your home.'

There seems to be a little misunderstanding:
Migrants Refuse to Leave NYC Hotel, Demand Taxpayers Give Them 'Permanent Homes'.  Border crossers, who arrived in New York City on buses from Texas, are refusing to leave a luxury Manhattan hotel that city officials had placed them in.  Over the weekend, city officials sought to move migrants out of the Watson Hotel in the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood of Manhattan and to the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal where Mayor Eric Adams has constructed a massive shelter for new arrivals.  Many of the border crossers staying at the Watson Hotel, paid for by taxpayers, are refusing to leave and have instead set up a homeless encampment outside the hotel.  There, they are demanding the city "cancel rent" and provide them with "permanent homes."

Migrants refuse to leave NYC hotel for relocation to Brooklyn.  Immigration activists are stirring the pot in New York City.  Migrants were scheduled to be moved from the Watson Hotel in Hell's Kitchen on Sunday night, but they refused to leave.  They are to be moved to a new shelter in Brooklyn with all the same services they receive at the hotel.  It's not good enough.  The new shelter is at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal.  Mayor Adams announced last week that the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal would be a migrant mega-shelter.  It will hold up to 1,000 single adult men.

So where does that migrant entitlement mentality come from?  As if the cost alone weren't enough to make the millions of illegal migrants brought in by Joe Biden's open borders unpopular here, the ingratitude and entitlement mentality of these illegals now seals the deal. [...] But there's more to it than just leftists putting ideas into empty migrant heads.  News reports say that many of the migrants refusing to move are Venezuelan, denizens of the country that was turned into a socialist dump by the late unlamented Hugo Chavez who really had a thing against private property, or paying at all for anything.  The sign featured above has a small Colombian flag and that country has significant cultural crossover with Venezuela, as well as its own newly elected Chavista president, the loathesome leftist ex-guerrilla, friend, and imitator of Chavez, Gustavo Petro.  Odds are good that these migrants demanding as beggars to be choosers of what kind of "free" housing they expect to get were infused with that entitlement mentality from the day they were born, because entitlement to housing was pretty much all they ever heard about the topic from their socialist leaders in that free press-deprived hellhole.

The Editor says...
In other words, Joe Biden is actively or passively importing tens of thousands of surly and presumptuous Communists demanding free stuff.  It is as if Cloward and Piven occupy the White House.

New York Learns What Consequences Are After Illegal Immigrants Occupy a Hotel.  New York is currently learning the hard way that actions have consequences after a large group of illegal immigrants occupied a hotel, causing the city's government and residents to decry the situation.  Per Fox News, the illegal immigrants were scheduled to be relocated to a new "migrant relief center" but refused to vacate the free rooms they were given.  An encampment was also set up outside the hotel's lobby. [...] There are several cities that deserve everything they are getting in regard to what the left calls the "migrant crisis," and New York is at or near the top of the list.  The city designated itself a "sanctuary city" years ago, something its politicians and residents were keen to brag about when it had no real effect on their lives.  Now that illegal immigrants are beginning to overwhelm the system, though, it's suddenly a problem.

Don't blame the migrants, blame the lefty activists filling them with nonsense.  Why do the adult male migrants now refusing to give up on their luxury accommodations at the Watson Hotel in Hell's Kitchen act and sound suspiciously like American activists on the same issue?  Because activists are deeply involved in the standoff itself — and with the larger effort to ramp up illegal migration, leaving Mayor Eric Adams (and others) to deal with the resulting humanitarian catastrophe.  Like Sergio Tupac Uzurin, an activist with NYC ICE Watch who's been front and center protesting the migrant move.  He claims that some migrants who saw the Brooklyn facility they're being moved to called it a "refugee camp."  Wow, that's the exact same term used by lefty critics of Adams' other migrant facilities.  What a coincidence!

DeSantis Wins Lawsuit Dealing With Illegal Immigrant Flights to Martha's Vineyard.  Ron DeSantis set off a firestorm back in September after sending flights of illegal immigrants to Martha's Vineyard, a self-described "sanctuary city" and playground for the leftwing elite.  Immediately, DeSantis was accused of being criminally and civilly liable for giving people rides that they volunteered to take.  A local sheriff opened an investigation, claiming the Florida governor broke the law by supposedly coercing the illegal immigrants.  Meanwhile, Rep. Adam Schiff called for a House select committee on the matter.  Then there were the ridiculous lawsuits filed by illegal immigrants and government accountability groups.  It was all just so absurd.  If the illegal immigrants volunteered to go and were told where they were going, how could that be illegal?  And to be clear, that's exactly what happened.  No one was taken to Martha's Vineyard under the false pretense that they'd be going somewhere else or that they'd immediately be given a job.  In fact, most of the illegal immigrants were thankful for the ride given the other option was sitting on the streets of Texas border towns with zero prospects.

Biden's Parole Program: Migrant families rush Miami airport after GOP lawsuit.  Since 20 GOP-led states filed a lawsuit Tuesday against President Biden's new immigration plan, migrants are now rushing to fly into the United States.  Hundreds of migrants flew into the Miami International Airport Thursday and Friday from Cuba, Nicaragua, Venezuela, and Haiti — all coming to the United States legally under the parole program.  Under the new immigration plan, the U.S. will allow 30,000 migrants from four countries to enter each month.  Migrant families are now coming to the United States earlier than expected after the lawsuit — fearing the program could end.

The new CBPOne system is "saturated and it's chaos".  That description is of a Salvadoran migrant waiting in Embajadores de Jesus in Tijuana to enter the United States with his wife and children to claim asylum.  He said he is at the point of giving up over frustration with the new app program meant to take over for Title 42, which may be ending shortly, depending on what the Supreme Court decides.  The routine is the same every morning at the shelter, one of Mexico's largest.  Migrants wake up before sunrise and go online with hopes of securing an appointment to seek asylum in the United States.  The action is being compared to purchasing concert tickets online.  The system is overwhelmed.  On any day, you can see about 100 people on their phones trying to use the CBPOne app.  New appointments are available every day at 6:00 a.m.  However, migrants are receiving error messages from the U.S. government's mobile app.  It's been overloaded since the first day, January 12.

It's Not Just the Southern Border: Illegal Crossings up 743%... in Vermont.  As the crisis of illegal crossings continues unabated at the Southern Border, migrant encounters in the state of Vermont were also up a staggering 734 percent in the period of October-December 2022 compared to the same period the prior year.  While the percentage rise is massive, the pace is still a trickle compared to what goes on at the Rio Grande.  For instance, 441 crossers were caught trying to slip into Vermont from Canada in December 2022, while a record 251,487 were nabbed trying to cross the US-Mexico border during the same period.

As Refugees Flood Into U.S., Chinese Christians Told To Wait.  Just this month, President Biden announced plans to allow Venezuelans, Nicaraguans, and Cubans fleeing persecution priority asylum status as long as they arrived by plane and had private sponsors ready to help them resettle.  When it comes to Chinese Christians trapped in limbo, the Biden administration is balking, while offering no explanation for the dramatically different treatment of these groups of foreign nationals seeking asylum.  Human rights advocates believe they already have the answer:  The Biden administration is wary of further rocking the boat with China amid efforts to repair basic lines of communication.  That calculation, even if it proves temporary, is a break from America's long tradition of standing for religious freedom at home and abroad.

Mayorkas Smuggled 100,000 Job-Seeking Migrants Through Parole Pathway.  President Joe Biden's border chief smuggled more than 100,000 economic migrants into the United States from May to December via a hidden "parole" pathway that was admitted on January 12.  Border chief Alejandro Mayorkas — a Cuban-born, equity-above-the-law, business-friendly, pro-migration zealot — is welcoming another 20,000 migrants per month via this parole pathway, officials told friendly reporters at a background briefing on January 25.

This migrant mess is ruining NYC's Midtown.  Why is Mayor Eric Adams destroying Midtown?  The pulsing heart of the city, the theater, restaurant and tourism district, has not fully recovered from the COVID lockdown yet is already full of homeless hotels with their associated problems.  Now the mayor has announced he's going to turn yet another hotel into a shelter for illegal migrants in the middle of the Theater District.  The Paramount Hotel, a 600-room, Renaissance-style gem opposite the Richard Rodgers Theatre where "Hamilton" has been playing since 2015, is the fifth Midtown hotel converted to an "emergency" shelter in as many months.  Earlier this month, tourists were paying $330 a night to stay there and prices hit as high as $1,000 around New Year's Eve.

About 160M people would like to immigrate to the US.  Here's what that means.  When someone in a poorer country says she wants to become an American, it's not nice to say no.  It also makes me a bit uneasy for our government to select would-be immigrants based on the purported "value" of those immigrants.  On the other hand, an immigration lottery is so arbitrary that it seems its own sort of cruelty.  The alternative, which very few people openly advocate, is open borders:  The U.S. ought to let all comers come.  So, how many people would that be?  Approximately 160 million adults, according to Gallup's latest global survey.  For comparison, the U.S. currently has about 260 million adults.  That is, if everyone who wanted to immigrate to the U.S. in 2021 did immigrate to the U.S. in 2021, the U.S. adult population would increase by about 60%.

Given That Illegal Immigration Damages America, Why Does No One Stop It?  For ordinary Americans, watching the unending flow of illegal aliens into America leads to an inevitable question:  Why is no one showing the political will to stop it?  It turns out that more institutions and people than just the Democrat party benefit from that flood of humanity, drugs, and crime.  One of the big drivers of illegal immigration is the pernicious Chamber of Commerce, once a "Main Street" organization.  Big Business in America needs workers.  Illegal immigrants swell the worker pool, doing many of those supposed "jobs Americans won't do."  You know, those in the construction industry, hotels, farming, etc.  To the degree that Big Business can employ illegal immigrants at wages below those wages for legal American workers, illegal immigration is a winning issue for them.  Another pro-illegal institution is the Catholic Church.  It not only solicits funds from parishioners but also generates hundreds of millions of dollars annually for supporting the illegal alien invasion.  The Chamber and the Vatican are only part of the cabal of businesses, NGOs, and government agencies that have built an ecosystem around the illegal immigrant trade.  Illegal aliens are profitable for everyone but the American worker.

Analysis: 'Mind-Blowing' Illegal Immigration Under Biden Approaching 1% of Total U.S. Population.  President Joe Biden's administration may bring a record 2.7 million illegal aliens to the United States-Mexico border this year, new analysis projects.  For 2021, Steven Kopits with Princeton Policy Advisors accurately projected that about two million border crossers and illegal aliens would be apprehended.  Likewise, Kopits correctly projected that more than 2.3 million border crossers and illegal aliens would be apprehended in 2022, for a total of about 4.2 million apprehensions since Biden took office.

You brought your problems upon yourself.
Eric Adams: 'Unfair' for Sanctuary Cities to Carry the Weight of the Border Crisis.  New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) once again took to the airwaves to say Democratic cities who declared themselves to be a sanctuary for illegal immigrants are being stretched thin due to the large number of people crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.  New York City has had to open a fifth shelter for recent arrivals from the southern border, which is in addition to using hotels and homeless shelters to house people coming from Latin America and even parts of Asia.  "Well, I believe that when I took the trip to El Paso, you can see firsthand the impact of how it not only harm the foundation of El Paso, but look at Chicago, Houston, Washington, New York City, this is just unfair for cities to carry the weight of a national problem," Adams told MSNBC on Wednesday.  "We're going to open for more hotels, emergency hotels...  This as a major financial impact on New York City and cities across this country that are receiving the brunt of it."  Adams said the Biden White House claims there is a person who is in charge of helping American cities with the immigration problem, but he does not who the person is.

As Biden's Border Death Toll Hits Record Highs, Dems Are Mute.  In a data dump Friday, the Biden administration announced that more than a quarter million people crossed the border illegally in December — the highest ever recorded.  The timing of this release was designed to bury the news, not that it mattered, since the mainstream media have ignored the growing border crisis with fierce determination.  But that's not the worst of it.  Border deaths also reached all-time highs.  That news is so bad, the "most transparent administration in history" tried to keep it hidden altogether, coughing it up only in response to a Freedom of Information Act request.  When that data did come out ... crickets.  This silence is particularly galling, given that the left was screaming bloody murder about border deaths during the Trump administration.

Biden Wants Advocates to Pick, Import a Million-Plus Refugees.  A State Department official dodged questions about the risk to Americans created by the agency's decision to let U.S. residents select foreigners for the huge prize of refugee status, green cards, and then citizenship in just six years.  "Do you have any safeguards for Americans?" Breitbart News asked as Assistant Secretary of State Julieta Valls Noyes walked out of a very short June 19 briefing on the legally questionable "Welcome Corps" program.  She claimed there would be protections but exited without providing any details.  "This is one more way the administration is trying to make an end run around the immigration law," responded Mark Krikorian, director of the Center for Immigration Studies.

Biden Admin Shatters All-Time Record For Number Of Illegal Alien Encounters On Southern Border.  President Joe Biden's administration broke the all-time record for the number of illegal aliens encountered on the U.S.-Mexico border last month, according to newly released numbers.  The administration released the numbers late Friday evening likely in hopes that the news of more than a quarter of a million encounters would get little coverage in the news media.  U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) had 251,487 encounters with illegal aliens last month, the highest number ever recorded in U.S. history.  Last month's numbers, combined with the first two months of fiscal year 2023 — October and November — put the U.S. on track to have more than 2.87 million illegal alien encounters on the U.S. southern border this year.

Mexico Is Not Really an American Friend.  Left-wing Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador recently praised a visiting Joe Biden:  "Just imagine: There are 40 million Mexicans in the United States — 40 million who were born here in Mexico, [or] who are the children of people who were born in Mexico!"  Why wouldn't Obrador be delighted?  Since Biden took office in January 2021, America has allowed some 5-6 million illegal entries across its southern border.  Obrador further congratulated the malleable Biden whom he apparently sees as a kindred but complacent left-wing spirit:  "You are the first president of the United States in a very long time that has not built even one meter of wall."  Translated that means Mexico is delighted the United States now cares little about the security of its own border, the disappearance of which apparently is wonderful news for Mexico.  Note that Mexico itself facilitates illegal transits across its own southern border — as long as such Central American and other global migrants keep heading northward into the United States.

Boston tries to ride the immigration wave without any idea what's coming next.  The Boston Globe published a story today about the efforts of both the city and the state of Massachusetts to deal with the surge of migrants.  How many migrants wind up in Massachusetts exactly?  Well it turns out no one really knows: [...] In addition to not knowing how many people have already arrived the city and the state have no idea how many more people to expect this year.  Will it be more than last year or about the same?  There's no way to know because policies at the source are in flux.  Toward the end of the story there's a kind of primer on how the current system works.

The $2,275 figure sounds like it was carefully calculated.  Where did it come from?  How long will $2,275 last, and what will it buy?
Biden admin launching pilot program that would allow Americans to sponsor refugees for $2,275 each.  The Biden administration is set to launch a new pilot program on Thursday [1/19/2023] that will ostensibly allow groups of Americans to directly sponsor refugees from across the globe through the State Department program called the Welcome Corps.  The program permits groups of private American citizens to sponsor individuals through the Refugee Resettlement Program if they can cough up enough money to do so, pass background checks, and devise a plan on how to support them, according to Fox News Digital.  It is similar to a model used in Canada.  The program was first reported by Reuters.  Groups of at least five people will be required to raise a minimum of $2,275 per refugee.  Then refugees can begin the process of going through background checks.

The Editor says...
The thousands of people entering the U.S. illegally are not refugees.  Some are looking for work, so they can send their money back home to their relatives.  Many are only coming to the U.S. to give birth to an "anchor baby."  The rest are looking for welfare benefits, freebies, and perhaps their first visit with a doctor.

December was a BANNER month! (For illegal migrants).  The United States remains on track to continue setting all sorts of records, but they aren't the type of achievements any sane person was hoping for.  The latest blue ribbon to be awarded to the Biden administration is found in the revelation from Customs and Border Patrol that more than 250,000 "encounters" with illegal migrants along the southern border were recorded in December.  That is the first time since records have been kept that this has happened.  And the news comes on the heels of Joe Biden's first-ever visit to the border, where he didn't seem particularly concerned with all of the chaos that is unfolding because of his policies.  And just for the record, that figure of 250,000 does not include the estimated 65,000 known illegal "gotaways."  So in reality, we were well over 300,000.

Mayor Eric Adams: 'No More Room' for Border Crossers in Sanctuary City NYC.  New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) says there is simply "no more room" for border crossers and illegal aliens in the sanctuary city after tens of thousands have arrived since the spring of last year, most sent by Texas.  Gov. Greg Abbott (R) on buses.  Adams, who traveled to El Paso, Texas, on Monday to get a first-hand account of the record-breaking number of illegal immigrants arriving each month under President Joe Biden's watch, said New York City has "no more room" before suggesting that New Yorkers have an "obligation" to the world's migrants to care for and foot the bill for their public services.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams Pressures Gov. Kathy Hochul To Push Migrants Upstate.  Democratic New York City Mayor Eric Adams pushed Democratic New York Gov. Kathy Hochul to relocate Hispanic migrants to the Upstate New York area on Sunday.  After months of struggling with the influx of illegal migrants sent from Texas to NYC, Adams advocated for Hochul to move the migrants to the Upstate area.  "Some of our cities are suffering.  They're losing populations," Adams stated while addressing the border from El Paso, Texas, the New York Post reported.  [Tweet]

Biden's 50K Afghans Cost Taxpayers $189M in Damages to U.S. Military Bases.  The nearly 50,000 Afghans whom President Joe Biden's administration housed on five United States military bases for months through 2021 and early 2022 cost taxpayers almost $189 million in damages to the facilities, a federal report reveals.  Following the U.S. Armed Forces' withdrawal from Afghanistan in August 2021, Biden opened a refugee pipeline that has resettled more than 86,000 Afghans in American communities — many without having been screened or interviewed in person beforehand.

FL Keys Sheriff Defends DeSantis' National Guard Deployment: The Feds Have Failed.  Monroe County Sheriff Rick Ramsay said the Biden administration is in no position to criticize Governor Ron DeSantis' (R) deployment of National Guardsmen deal with the increase in illegal boat landings in the Florida Keys because the federal government has failed in protecting the country's borders.  Ramsay told Townhall people landing on American shores in his jurisdiction used to happen about once a week or a few times a month and it would mainly consist of small groups of four or five.  Boats that are landing these days are coming on a near daily basis with larger numbers of people, mainly filled with Haitians and Cubans.  This has taxed the rural county's sheriff's office and EMS services as manpower has been drawn to taking care of the ever increasing number of people who have been making landfall.  In response, DeSantis declared a state of emergency and ordered the Florida National Guard, along with state law enforcement, to be sent to the Keys to reinforce the Sheriff's Office.

Tiny upstate NY town facing wave of migrants.  By this point, most of us have heard the phrase, 'every town is a border town now' because of the ongoing Biden border crisis.  We typically think of places like Chicago, Los Angeles, and, of course, New York City, where armies of migrants sleep out on the streets and in makeshift encampments.  But those are actually cities, not "towns."  What happens when the influx of illegal migrants strikes an actual town, particularly a small one without all of the resources typically available in the larger cities?  Roughly six hours by car from the Big Apple, not far from the Ohio border, the people of Jamestown, New York (population 28,000) are starting to find out.  Residents of the very small village recently learned that as many as 35 illegal migrants, almost all of them from Colombia, have settled in their town and many more are expected to arrive soon.

A city of 28,000 is not a "tiny town."

House, Senate Republicans Seek to Overturn D.C. Law Allowing Illegal Aliens to Vote.  House and Senate Republicans are seeking to overturn a new law, approved by Democrats on the Washington, DC, City Council, that extends municipal voting rights to illegal aliens.  In October 2022, the D.C. City Council voted 12-1 to advance a bill that will allow foreign nationals, regardless of if they have visas or are illegally in the United States, to vote in local elections such as school board races and mayoral elections.  About 50,000 foreign nationals and illegal aliens could be eligible to vote in local elections across D.C. if the measure is not thrown out by Congress before taking effect.

Illegal immigrants [are] trashing New York hotels at taxpayer expense.  According to the New York City Council there are 80,000 homeless New Yorkers on their streets.  It is, by their own assessment, a crisis.  Yet for illegal immigrants arriving in the city, things are pretty good, because the government puts you up in luxury hotels near Times Square, provides free meals, and lets you run wild.  You can smoke drugs, get drunk, have sex in hallways, and trash the hotel without repercussions.  The problem is so acute that an employee of the (formerly) trendy NYC hotel "Row" has become a whistleblower, filming conditions in the hotel and is risking his job to expose the scandal.  He's no racist — he's Hispanic himself and worked his way up the economic ladder the right way.  The hotel was closed to allow the city to take it over for migrant housing.  It's no flophouse, either.  Located in the theater district and a block off Times Square, it was one of those destination hotels in the heart of the city.  It is becoming a dump, though.

Biden Admin Expands Ways For Migrants To Shirk Trump-Era Border Policy.  The Biden administration's new border policy makes it easier for migrants to circumvent Title 42, a major Trump-era public health order used for expulsions to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, by exempting many from expulsion.  President Joe Biden announced Jan. 5 an expanded legal pathway for migrants that would otherwise be expelled under Title 42 so long as they can prove they have a legitimate need for protection.  He recently began expelling Venezuelans, Cubans, Nicaraguans and Haitians, while providing a legal pathway if they have a U.S. sponsor and apply via a phone application known as "CBP [Customs and Border Protection] One."  The Biden administration previously attempted to end Title 42, but the Supreme Court decided on Dec. 27 to keep it in place for the time being after Republican states intervened.

The Scariest Developments to Watch Out For in 2023.  Illegal immigration is not good for the U.S. It strains our medical and educational resources, costs billions to support people who cannot legally work here, and may increase the crime rate.  Roughly five million people have crossed into our country in the last two years.  How many are sick?  How many are vaccinated, and what are they immunized for?  How many are criminals or terrorists?  The government does not know and seems not to care.  Republicans are not helping clarify this issue.  Regarding the border, Congresswoman Monica De La Cruz says, "President Biden does not have a plan."  Actually, he does.  It is called let millions of illegals in, make them citizens, and get re-elected in 2024.  Now that Biden has visited the border, will the flood of immigrants decline in 2023?  Apparently, the optics of illegal border crossings was making Democrats nervous.  So now potential migrants will be allowed to apply for asylum in their home countries and simply fly to the U.S.

Black Americans Score Settlement Against U.S. Farms that Replaced Them with Foreign Workers.  A group of black Americans settled their lawsuits against two United States farms for their having replaced them with foreign workers from South Africa that were imported on H-2A visas.  As Breitbart News reported in November 2021, a number of black Americans along the Mississippi Delta filed a racial discrimination lawsuit against their former employers — Pitts Farms and Harris Russell Farms — for laying them off only to replace them with white foreign H-2A visa workers from South Africa.  Data shows U.S. farms use the H-2A visa program to import cheaper foreign visa workers.  The black Americans who filed the lawsuit claimed they were paid $7.25 to $8.25 an hour while their foreign H-2A visa counterparts were paid nearly $12 an hour.

'Tons' of food gets tossed daily by NYC hotel because migrants won't eat it.  Nearly a ton of taxpayer-provided food gets tossed in the trash every day at a massive Manhattan hotel being used to house migrants — because they'd rather secretly cook their own meals on dangerous hot plates, a whistleblowing worker has revealed.  Disturbing photos show garbage bags full of sandwiches and bagels awaiting disposal at the four-star Row NYC hotel near Times Square, where the city pays a daily rate as high as $500 per room, hotel employee Felipe Rodriguez told The [New York] Post.  "It's a crime to be throwing out so much food," he said.  Other images show a hotel room littered with empty beer cans and bottles following a wild World Cup viewing party in November, Rodriguez said.  That gathering — in a room whose occupant "gave the key to a cousin" while she "was in the Bronx, hanging out" — erupted into a fight over the match that left one man with a "big knot on his head," Rodriguez said.

The Editor says...
The solution is obvious:  Don't prepare, deliver, or supply any food until somebody asks for it, and asserts their intention to pay for it.  If they order food and then they don't pay up, throw them out.  In the snow.  At night.  The word will get around quickly.  Even if the city is paying the rent, at some point you have the right to protect your business and your property.

In Mexico, Joe Biden Promotes Plan to Make it 'Easier' for Migrants Trying to Enter the United States.  President Joe Biden promoted his plan Tuesday to make it easier for migrants to come to the United States after meeting with the leaders of Mexico and Canada.  "This has been the greatest migration in human history around the world as well as in this hemisphere," Biden said, speaking about the ongoing migration crisis after meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador during a summit in Mexico City.  But the president did not appear troubled by the volume of border crossings and migrants flooding into local communities in the United States, placing a burden on U.S. citizens and legal residents.

Real Crisis Demonstrated by Democrat Governor Who Bused Illegal Immigrants Out of State.  Colorado Gov. Jared Polis, a Democrat, announced Saturday [1/7/2023] that he would stop busing illegal immigrants to New York City and Chicago.  You can be forgiven if you didn't know at all that Polis was busing these illegal immigrants north.  It's not like it got waves of hysterical media coverage.  Sure, some news outlets did cover the issue, but the framing was just a bit different than when Republican governors sent illegal immigrants elsewhere.  Weird, right?  Polis stopped his busing policy, it seems, because New York Mayor Eric Adams and Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot made a huge stink about it.  Still, it's noteworthy that a Democrat governor even would try to bus migrants out of his state as Republican governors have recently.  This whole situation brings up two issues.  First, the obvious media hypocrisy. [...]

Some Invasions Don't Require ArmiesDucey v.  Moore, currently being litigated in an Arizona federal district court, is a case that is testing states' rights to defend themselves from invasion by Mexican drug- and human-smuggling cartels.  In response to the well-documented influx of foreign nationals entering the country illegally, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey placed shipping containers along the state's southern border to stem the flow.  The federal government now claims that the shipping containers violate various federal regulations that it says apply to the Roosevelt Reservation area near the border, and seeks removal of the containers.  The case brings up the fundamental question of what constitutes an invasion.  Anti-borders activists scoff at the application of the term at our border, as there are no formal armies involved.  To them and others, "invasion" only applies to events like our boys from the Greatest Generation storming the beach at Normandy or Germany's Operation Barbarossa into Russia.  But what is the goal of an invasion?  If it is to penetrate, demoralize, and destabilize a nation, then the current flow into the United States fits the definition.  Cartel operatives at the border now come equipped with military-grade weapons and surveillance technology.  The fentanyl and other illicit drugs they ferry across the border are the leading cause of death for Americans 18 to 45 years old.

Articles of Impeachment Filed Against DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.  Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas recently called for expediting citizenship for illegal immigrants.  DHS also told U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) managers they couldn't publish weekly updates about immigration incursions and apprehensions on social media without agency permission.  And Mayorkas is also now known for propping up the lie that border patrol agents whipped Haitian immigrants when he knew it wasn't true.  Between those things and the crush of illegal immigrants at the border, combined with the increase in human and drug trafficking, crime, and the pressure on border towns to manage the new arrivals, Republican Congressman Pat Fallon of Texas has had enough.

Biden's Border Visit Was a Complete Farce.  The American Southwest is tired of neglect in their border communities, and a collective groan could be heard when President Joe Biden announced that he would be visiting El Paso, Texas.  Much like Vice President Kamala Harris's visit to the border was watered down, there were reports that El Paso, Texas, cleaned up its sidewalks to make them ready for the president.  He also did a photo-op at the border wall, which is laughable in itself.  The Biden administration halted border wall construction right after he took office, and many of those materials are rusting on the ground in some sectors of the border.  While many still disagree about the purpose of a border wall, it's important to recognize that it is one of the many necessary tools to fully secure the border.  Pretty simply, his photo-op is admitting that he was wrong this whole time.  It's ironic at best, and they're truly trying to deceive people about their policies' role in creating the current humanitarian crisis.

Supreme Court Rejects Texas-Led Attempt to Protect Trump-Era Immigration Rule.  The U.S. Supreme Court on Jan. 9 rejected a Texas-led challenge to reinstate a Trump-era policy that blocked certain immigrants from gaining permanent residency status if they're deemed likely to qualify for government benefits.  The high court didn't say why it rejected the challenge, listing the case under its list of "certiorari denied" cases.  An appeal from 14 Republican-led state attorneys general, led by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, sought to rescind a lower court ruling against their request to mount a legal defense of Trump's "public charge" rule after President Joe Biden stopped defending the measure and later rescinded it.  The policy was put into effect by the Trump administration in February 2020 and was ended by the Biden administration in March 2021.

America's Border Remains Open.  President Trump's immigration policy reduced the flow of illegal aliens into the U.S.  This was a significant accomplishment.  One of the most important aspects of Trump's strategy was the "Remain in Mexico" Policy, referred to by DHS as Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP). [...] The federal government is responsible for securing the country's borders.  President Biden has shirked this responsibility.  Biden issued an executive order ending Trump's successful immigration policy.  A few months later, DHS director Mayorkas ended MPP, opening U.S. borders.  Illegal aliens encountered on the southwest border totaled 458,088 in 2020; 1,734,686 in 2021; and 2,766,582 in 2022.  Nobody knows how many aliens have entered the U.S. unencountered. [...] Asylum is the legal loophole that Democrats use to allow the massive influx of illegal aliens.  Biden and Democrats know there may be more terrorists entering the country than people legitimately seeking asylum.  They don't care.

Hundreds Of Protesters Greet Joe Biden in El Paso In His First Visit to Open Border.  Protesters greeted Joe Biden in El Paso today during his first visit to the open US Border.  Since Joe Biden took over the White House the southern border has been wide open to illegal aliens.  Over 5 million illegals have already crossed into the US during Joe Biden's watch.  Democrats are done with America.  This is the purposeful suicide of the country they despise.

What does "sanctuary city" really mean?
Mayors Adams and Lightfoot demand Colorado stop sending migrants.  Colorado Gov. Jared Polis informed New York City this week that he'd be sending more buses full of migrants in the near future.  The story made news after Mayor Adams of NYC complained about it during a radio interview Tuesday.  But according to Gov. Polis, the buses full of migrants aren't new.  He's been "helping asylum seekers reach their final destinations" for weeks.  He says there is a backlog of migrants wanting to leave Denver and head to New York but because of a recent storm they were stuck in Denver.  Now he's trying to undo that backlog.

Joe Biden's El Paso Potemkin Village is buckling before he even gets there.  It was all supposed to be so well-scripted and harmonious.  Joe Biden would visit the border at the politically safe, Democrat-led El Paso entry point, make a speech about how well he's doing on his migrant surge crisis, and off camera, someone would clean up the migrant mess in the vicinity to give Joe the backdrop to spin to the public that all was quiet and under control at the border[.]  Ummm... but in much chaos, it's really not working out the way he thought it would work out.  It's bad. [...] They've just gotten here and already they're forming a political movement, making themselves a special interest group, protesting the badness of our country and demanding political spoils as compensation.  How's that for chutzpah in a foreign country?

Biden Admin Spent Over $300 Million In Taxpayer Money to Fund Illegal Migrants' Dental and Health Care.  By now it's not shocking to learn that President Joe Biden favors illegal migrants more than Americans after two of doing nothing as the southern border wreaked havoc on the U.S.  In an annual report released by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Biden Administration spent hundreds of millions of dollars to ensure illegal immigrants were well taken care of.  The ICE Health Service Corps' budget was about $324 million, which was an $8 million increase from the year prior.  According to the report, the money was spent on providing "direct care — including medical and dental health services — to over 118,000 non-citizens housed at 19 IHSC-operated facilities throughout the United States, which exceeded 1.1 million visits over the course of the fiscal year."

El Paso Migrant Camps Cleared Ahead of Biden's Visit.  President Joe Biden is finally headed to the U.S.-Mexico border, which has been in a state of crisis since he took office, and it appears when he visits El Paso, the true reality of the situation might not be evident.  Due to the recent influx of illegal immigrants in the El Paso Sector, local shelters have been out of capacity for weeks, forcing many to camp out on the streets in different areas of downtown.  But there are now reports of the camps being cleared ahead of Biden visiting the city on Sunday.

The Editor says...
Here's how to get an accurate picture of the border:  Announce a presidential trip to El Paso, and then have him go to Laredo or Del Rio instead.

Mayorkas Insults Our Intelligence yet Again When Asked About Biden's Upcoming 'Border Visit'.  Shockingly enough, the Biden White House's Thursday announcement that Joe Biden was set to finally visit the southern border during his trip to Mexico for the so-called "Three Amigos Summit" has had the mainstream media pressing for details the administration has so far been reluctant to give.  One tidbit we recently learned that shines an unflattering light on Joe Biden's trip is that downtown El Paso has reportedly been "sanitized" ahead of his visit, with the migrant encampments that had previously cropped up being quietly moved out of sight.  This has led to more speculation that Biden's pit stop in El Paso will be an epic photo op flop, much like his "border czar" Kamala Harris' trip to El Paso in June 2021 was.

Bordering on Nullity.  Nearly 5,000,000 illegal aliens have entered the United States since Biden took office.  Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas has repeatedly assured us that the border is secure.  He has established himself as the Baghdad Bob of the Biden administration.  He ought to be run out of town on a rail, but it should be noted that he has faithfully executed administration policy.  Biden followed up word of his weekend trip to El Paso with a late morning speech pretending that he will do something to stem the tide of illegal immigration. [...] As usual, Biden stood before a teleprompter in the Roosevelt Room and struggled to read the text as it scrolled before him.  Biden opened his remarks by blaming Republicans for the crisis that Mayorkas has declared not to exist.

El Paso clears downtown of expansive migrant camps ahead of Biden visit.  City sidewalks that transformed into makeshift homeless camps as tens of thousands of illegal immigrants were released into downtown El Paso in recent months have been cleared out ahead of President Joe Biden's arrival Sunday.  The hundreds of people camped out on individual blocks surrounding the Greyhound Bus Station and Sacred Heart Church have been moved out of eyesight by local El Paso police officers and federal Border Patrol agents, according to four law enforcement officials who spoke with the Washington Examiner on Thursday.

Investigation Uncovers Shocking Facts About Who's Facilitating Biden Border Crisis.  As part of the Oversight Project's work to document NGO involvement in the border crisis, the Project launched an investigation which ultimately obtained a sampling of approximately 30,000 unique and anonymized mobile devices that were geofenced to a number of these NGOs along the border.  These locations were chosen based on human source information, as well as open-source intelligence, that they may be involved in helping illegal aliens travel from the border to various parts of the interior.  Device pings were captured throughout the month of January 2022, in four different phases: [...] Phase Two results demonstrated that these 22,000 devices were later traced to 431 separate U.S. congressional districts out of a total 435 congressional districts.  Of the 52 congressional districts with the highest density of devices, 71% were Republican congressional districts.  Of the 5,000 devices captured in Phase 3, they were later traced to all but one congressional district, and of the 3,400 captured in Phase 4 — all at just one NGO location — those phones later pinged in 433 of 435 congressional districts.  In short, this is proof that Biden's border crisis has turned every state into a border state.

Our government is failing us.  Nearly 6 million people have come across our southern border illegally since Joe Biden took office two years ago.  Not only does this administration's nonexistent border enforcement cost Americans more than $150 billion a year, it allows illegal drugs like fentanyl to pour into our country.  60% of all fake prescription pills last year contained fentanyl — a 50% increase in just one year.  Two-thirds of all overdose deaths (more than 100,000 last year) were fentanyl-related, and fentanyl overdoses are now the leading cause of death in Americans age 18-49.

Biden Makes More of a Mess, Compares Illegal Aliens to Holocaust Victims.  We reported earlier about how Joe Biden had finally gotten around to making plans to go to the border.  Biden also made remarks about the border, with Kamala Harris trying to hold it together while standing behind him.  The remarks were just a confused mess.  Biden didn't seem to have any idea what he was talking about.  He didn't know what "CBP" stands for, that it is Title 8 that applies to immigration, or that Title 42 has helped to prevent the situation at the border from getting much worse.  His "plan" seems to be an app that would help people who apply for asylum.

The Coup We Never Knew.  Did someone or something seize control of the United States?  What happened to the U.S. border?  Where did it go?  Who erased it?  Why and how did 5 million people enter our country illegally?  Did Congress secretly repeal our immigration laws?  Did Joe Biden issue an executive order allowing foreign nationals to walk across the border and reside in the United States as they pleased?

They are the insurrectionists.  There's a lot of talk of treason and corruption, but I wonder, legally, what does it take to invoke charges of insurrection among the many public servants, across the board, not only, but especially House and Senate members, who have violated their oaths of office, who refuse to enforce any laws except those that put American citizens at risk of life and limb while protecting illegal alien invaders?  How many of these foreign invaders are being paid out of the public treasury?  And what are they being paid to do and when do they intend to do it?  Stay with me a minute here, I'm not talking about some clever internet meme or viral rant, I'm talking legally.  The Supreme Court has never ruled, as far as I know, on a case of institutional insurrection against the general public, acting against the will, security and peace of the nation.  The only ones powerful enough to commit such an act are those placed in positions of authority by either a vote, or a rigged election.  Which do you think would be more likely to commit these egregious violations, the legally and properly elected or those who benefit from a rigged election?

If the Texas governor does this, it's bad.  But this is okay:
Colorado gov planning to send migrants to New York City, Mayor Adams says.  Colorado Gov. Jared Polis is planning to send migrants to cities including New York City, NYC Mayor Eric Adams said Tuesday, who says he was notified of the plan on Monday evening.  "We were notified yesterday that the governor of Colorado is now stating that they are going to be sending migrants to places like New York and Chicago," Adams said in an interview with WABC's "Sid & Friends in the Morning."  Polis later clarified to Politico that Colorado has been helping migrants reach destinations like NYC for weeks, but a rush for bus tickets had been created due to travel chaos after a winter storm.  Polis said the mayor of Denver, which has been overwhelmed with migrants, reached out to Adams' office to let them know that more migrants than usual may be arriving by bus.

Rebellion Against the People.  They say they want to import these people to vote for Democrats, socialists, communists, but they're not here to vote, they're here to attack.  They're here to trash what good is left, destroy what safety one might have felt in their small towns and rural existence.  They're here to show Americans how to rid themselves of the last vestige of sovereign individuality and to demonstrate how to accept servility and kill them if they resist further.  California intends to employ these disassociated masses as policemen, thugs, to terrorize and dispose of those who question their authority, any authority.

The Tyranny in America.  It never ceases to amaze me when I hear media talking heads plaintively ask, "Why won't Biden or Harris visit the border?"  They ask the question genuinely believing that if either the President or the Vice President saw the looming existential disaster, it would change their minds.  Such naiveté confirms Dr. King's idea that "nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity."  Daily, we see the dictatorial moves by Biden and his administration.  We view the tears of those at the southern border who fear for their lives and property.  As the illegals surge into the country, sexual exploitation, human trafficking, crime, rampant drug use, violence, disease, death, and soul-searing fear continue to suffocate Americans. [...] Of course, illegal immigration will continue.  In the next two years of Biden's rule, another five million illegals will enter the country and thus an entrenched dictatorship will take hold.

Denver [is] 'not able to sustain' arriving migrants much longer, city officials say.  The City of Denver has spent more than $1.5 million on all aspects of sheltering arriving migrants since the first week of December and is on track to spend $3 million by the end of the month, according to city leaders.  "This has been extremely taxing on city resources.  We are not a border community.  We don't have federal resources like border communities do.  So, the help that we can provide in Denver is very limited.  And we're at the point where we're not able to sustain much longer.  We're at our breaking point," said Mikayla Ortega, Denver Joint Information Center representative.

Joe Biden Reopens Welfare-Dependent Legal Immigration to the United States.  President Joe Biden's United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has officially reopened legal immigration to foreign nationals with a history of using American taxpayer-funded welfare benefits.  In early 2020, the Trump administration finalized a federal regulation known as the "public charge" rule that made it less likely for foreign nationals to secure green cards to permanently reside in the United States if they had previously used welfare programs like food stamps, Medicaid, or taxpayer-funded housing programs.  Almost immediately after taking office, Biden threw out the finalized public charge rule imposed by the Trump administration, blowing open the door for welfare-dependent legal immigration to the United States, for which American taxpayers will ultimately foot the bill.

Busloads of migrants are being dropped off at Phoenix Sky Harbor daily.  The number of people illegally crossing the southern border into Arizona continues to grow, and many of them are being bused daily to the Phoenix airport, where they are then sent to destinations across the country.  Airport officials say they see between 200 and 300 migrants every day, dropped off by the busload from border officials or NGOs from Yuma.  One man who traveled from Cuba is hoping to get to Miami.  When asked why he made the dangerous journey to the U.S., he said, "Like all Cubans, it's the American dream."  Another family said that once they crossed into Yuma, they were processed by immigration in under 24 hours.  Next thing they knew, they were on a bus to Sky Harbor.

Nothing will stop the Democrats' planned invasion across the southern border.  [Thread reader]  The final defeat of the American middle class is at hand.  The people threw away their last chance to do something about it at the ballot box.  That horde of illegal aliens will become irresistible pressure for the last few trillions of irresponsible government spending needed to break the system.  You will not be allowed to vote against the titanic costs mass migration imposes on you.  Big spending will get much bigger.  Crime in the streets, downward pressure on wages, more "jobs Americans just won't do" — all part of the plan.  The Left will reap many political and financial benefits from the border wave, long before the big push to let the illegals vote.  Both sides of the aisle in Washington want this migration wave.  The few who have qualms about it have mostly been bought off or intimidated into meek acceptance.  The needs of the American people are not even part of the discussion.

Biden border crisis is turning El Paso into a giant tent city.  A giant tent is being put up in El Paso by the Border Patrol as the city prepares for the end of Title 42.  It is bigger than a football field and located northeast of downtown.  This project began as border communities waited to see if Title 42 would end this month but now we know that Title 42 will remain in place at least until February.  El Paso still needs additional space for the flood of illegal migrants coming across the border.  The local authorities are so overwhelmed that they are turning the overflow of people out on the streets because there is nowhere for them to stay while they wait to go through the asylum process.  The current processing center the Border Patrol has in El Paso won't be able to handle the need when a predicted 5,000 migrants per day cross the border and come into the city.

ICE apparently "loses" records of 378,000 detainees in illegal immigration program.  The Epoch Times is reporting that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials are apparently having some difficulty locating any records of illegal aliens placed in a key federal program numbering 378,000.  The program is designed to "ensure non-detained non-citizen compliance with release conditions, court hearings and final orders of removal, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), a nonprofit government transparence advocacy group.

ICE Can't 'Locate' Records of 378,000 Detainees.  Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials are unable to locate any records of illegal immigrants taken into custody and placed in a federal program to "ensure non-detained non-citizen compliance with release conditions, court hearings, and final orders of removal," according to a nonprofit government transparency advocacy group.  "ICE has conducted a search of the ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) for records responsive to your request and no records responsive to your request were found," the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) told the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University in a Dec. 22 letter.  The ICE letter cautioned that the failure to locate records sought by TRAC isn't evidence that the documents do or don't exist.  The inability of ICE to locate the requested records was described by TRAC in a Dec. 23 statement as a "very troubling development."

Census: Foreign-Born Population Increases Across All 50 States in 2022.  The foreign-born population grew across all 50 states and Washington, DC, this year, a result of the nation's decades-long legal immigration levels, the latest United States Census Bureau figures show.  While the foreign-born population grew nationwide, California, Florida, and Texas saw the highest gains.  California, which lost overall residents this year, added nearly 128,000 immigrants to its population.

Biden DHS Freed over 150K Border Crossers into U.S. without Court Dates in Summer 2021.  President Joe Biden's Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released more than 150,000 border crossers and illegal aliens, without a Notice to Appear (NTA) in immigration court, into the United States in the summer of 2021, bombshell footage reveals.  As part of a lawsuit against Biden's expansive Catch and Release network, Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody obtained internal DHS footage revealing the extent to which the agency released hundreds of thousands of border crossers and illegal aliens into the U.S. interior without court dates.

Biden's Unopposed Imposition of Stalinism.  The majority of Americans are against open borders.  Once again, what we want doesn't seem to matter.  A steady wave of illegal immigration is what Biden wants and no one seems the least bit interested in putting an end to it.  Millions of unvetted migrants are streaming across the border and being shipped to secret destinations in direct violation of U.S. immigration law.  This is nothing short of treasonous.  The import of deadly drugs, violent criminals, terrorists, and COVID spreaders constitutes the worst public safety issue since World War II.  At a time when runaway inflation is driving millions of Americans into the poorhouse, we are being forced to provide public assistance to millions of freeloading non-citizens.  Local communities are being torn apart by the influx of refugees. [...] None of this is happening by accident.  "It is becoming harder not to conclude that the border crisis is intentional," said Sen. John Kennedy of Louisiana. "Nobody is this incompetent."  Of course it is intentional.  Biden knows exactly what he is doing.  He gets his stooges, DHS Secretary Mayorkas and Press Secretary Jean-Pierre, to deny that the border is open, but we know they are lying through their teeth.

Supreme Court Agrees to Keep Title 42 Border Policy in Place Temporarily.  The Supreme Court voted 5-4 on Tuesday in favor of keeping Title 42 in place while legal challenges around the Trump-era border restriction play out.  The decision comes about a week after Chief Justice John Roberts stayed a lower-court order that would have ended the pandemic-era policy on December 21.  Title 42 allows for asylum-seekers at the border to be expelled to prevent the spread of communicable diseases.  On Tuesday, the court agreed to keep that pause in place, granting an emergency request by 19 Republican attorneys general who warned that allowing Title 42 to expire would lead to an explosion of illegal immigrants crossing the southern border.  Justice Neil Gorsuch joined the court's three liberals in voting against the request for a stay.

This is why Joe Biden won't go to the border.  As I described last week, the crisis at the border is about to get dramatically worse.  There are tens of thousands of people waiting in camps on the Mexican side of the border for the end of Title 42.  Whenever that happens, estimates suggest there could be 12,000 to 14,000 arrivals at the border per day.  Meanwhile, the Biden administration has no coherent plan to deal with it.  Through all of this, Joe Biden has remained consistently on the sidelines.  His refusal to go to the border to see the crisis he helped create up close has become a point of perverse pride.  And the media, naturally, has sided with Biden.

Don't Buy What Democrats Are Selling as Reality.  Under their new pseudo-reality, the Democrats would have us believe that our southern border is safe and secure when, in truth, they are open like a sieve.  Illegal aliens are pouring into our nation by the millions.  Imbedded among this unchecked influx are terrorists, criminals, and communicable disease-carriers.  This unabated alien onslaught has also set up conditions for drug cartels to infiltrate the U.S. more easily with tons of horrible drugs, which are killing American citizens daily at an unprecedented rate.  The United States' southern border is far from safe or secure.

Joe Biden is killing El Paso with his policies.  It has gotten so bad that after years of downplaying the crisis even the MSM is starting to cover the crisis.  This began, of course, just after the 2022 Midterm elections wrapped up.  There was a cone of silence over the problem — polling indicated that Americans were very concerned about immigration.  But once the votes had been cast and the Democrats for the most part saved the media clearly felt more comfortable covering the facts.  And the facts are indeed bad.  Thousands of migrants are illegally crossing the Rio Grande in the region, and it makes good sense for them to do so.  The river is low and concrete lined, making the actual passage there relatively safe and easy.  The federal government does nothing to stop the crossings, and they are there to "process" the immigrants (hand out papers and free phones), and they even transport a fraction of them away from the city.  But for many the free ride stops in El Paso itself.  The federal government just dumps the migrants on the streets with a wave and a nod, and the migrants are left to fend for themselves.  These migrants are "released to El Paso," which really just means dumped onto the locals.

America's Growing Political Impotence.  Consider, for example, how many Americans must feel watching pictures of migrants by the thousands from all over the planet almost effortlessly wading across the Rio Grande and then, with Washington's approval, relocating to a benefit-filled life anywhere they could travel.  Not even the most minimal pretense of legality exists, and who knows how many border crossers have criminal backgrounds?  That many are also drug smugglers or human traffickers compounds our sense of futility.  Nor can anybody believe that those entering our nation illegally will, as ordered, eventually report to authorities to be processed legally?  This is a sham spectacle where "border guards" resemble airport TSA agents directing arrivals to passport control.  Further add how the Biden administration repeatedly announces how the uncontrollable influx is "under control."  Our mighty military, armed with nuclear weapons, is daily outfoxed by impoverished teenagers from El Salvador.

18 Absurdities of the McConnell-Schumer Omnibus Spending Bill.  [#8] Intensifying Biden's Border Crisis:  The Biden administration's open border and NGO processing operations have quickly resulted in America's worst-ever border crisis.  The omnibus spending bill would prolong this crisis and spend more good money on bad policies.  Congress should reject the omnibus, defund these operations, and, at the beginning of the next Congress, pass a border security bill that would truly end the crisis.  The omnibus spending bill would give the Justice Department more money ($234 million) for state and local detention in the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program to collect information on aliens [SR1] and provide it to federal law enforcement, even though the Biden administration implements a "sanctuary country," prohibiting U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement from enforcing immigration laws or cooperating with state and local law enforcement regarding criminal aliens.

Chief Justice Roberts temporarily deals blow to Biden administration's plan to end Title 42.  Chief Justice John Roberts issued a one-page order to stay the lifting of Title 42 on Monday.  It's a temporary action, with the end of Title 42 scheduled for midnight Tuesday night.  Roberts gave the Biden administration until 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday to respond to the stay.  That is just hours before the policy is set to expire under current orders.  Team Biden has been pushing for the pandemic era policy to be halted.  Nineteen red states (though Kentucky has a Democrat governor) came together to lobby to keep the policy in place.  Their lawsuit made it up to the Supreme Court.  The response to Roberts' order was typical of DHS.  The department lies that illegal immigrants are being expelled back to Mexico, with or without Title 42.  The truth is that the Biden administration has tried for the past ten months to put a halt to Title 42 but has met legal challenges and loses in court.

US Supreme Court issues 24 hour postponement - temporarily pausing lifting Title 42 border restrictions this week.  The Supreme Court on Monday [11/19/2022] delayed lifting Title 42 for 24 hours after Republicans lobbied to keep the pandemic-era border policy in place.  Conservative Chief Justice John Roberts gave the Biden administration until 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday to respond to the stay — just hours before the policy is set to expire under current orders.  The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), which oversees all border and immigration operations, responded to the order by insisting that Title 42 will remain in effect during the time outlined by the Supreme Court and 'individuals who attempt to enter the United States unlawfully will continue to be expelled to Mexico.'

El Paso's migrant state of emergency is a taste of what nation faces as Biden shrugs at border crisis.  Oscar Leeser, the Democratic mayor of El Paso, has bent over backward not to "embarrass" the head of his party, President Joe Biden.  As migrants poured across the border, unmetered and unvetted, he quietly grappled with the strain on the city's resources.  He provided the shelter and food the federal government wouldn't.  Hestruck private deals with Mayor Eric Adams to alleviate the crush, busing some people to New York.  Even as the City Council begged him to point outwhat was happening, he refused.  He insisted he'd been told by the Biden administration that if he was patient, they would help.  This went on for months.  On Saturday, Leeser's patience finally broke.  He declared a state of emergency, admitting what had been obvious for nearly two years:  The border is out of control, and President Biden isn't doing anything about it.

Tyranny by omission.  By the time you read this, the U.S. is on course to be trampled by at least 15,000 illegal entries every day.  At half that rate, by November, 14 Customs and Border Protection agents had committed suicide this year.  The fentanyl flowing past beleaguered officers is now the leading cause of death for Americans ages 18 to 49.  Declaring a state of emergency in a city where as many as 30 people at a time are popping out of manholes, El Paso mayor Oscar Leeser declared a state of emergency on Dec. 17, saying he expects to grapple with up to 6,000 unlawful arrivals per day after Title 42 expulsions end on Dec. 21. [...] Unlike concerned citizens, President Biden refuses to talk about all this, with Democrats or Republicans.  The Democrat El Paso mayor has lost patience with Washington's promises to do something if he would stay quiet.  California Governor Gavin Newsomrecently accused Biden of failing to "take some responsibility and ownership."  CNN White House correspondent Jeremy Diamond implied on Dec. 18 that the White House has been ignoring the problem.  Even our ignoble FBI director Christopher Wrayfumes at the inaction.  Our border agents, local police, and other diverted officials, are run ragged, tending to the innumerable needs created, rather than keeping order and interdicting illegal drugs.

In El Paso, illegals are now crawling out of the sewers.  'They're coming out of the woodwork' now has a rather horrific comparative in El Paso, wherehundreds of illegals, at least,are now crawling into the U.S. through the sewers. [...] If that isn't suggestive of a border out of control, what is?  After all, illegal migrants are literally being escorted in by the Border Patrol, and instead of being detained for breaking and entering without authorization, they are now "processed" and sent on their way freely throughout the country.

Biden-Created Border Crisis About to Get Whole Lot Worse.  One of the last serious border enforcement policies left under the Biden administration is just days away from being removed.  If it can be believed, things look to become much worse at the southern border, where tens of thousands of illegal immigrants and asylum-seekers are currently gathering.  Title 42 is a public health policy implemented by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  President Donald Trump invoked it to allow the quick deportation of illegal immigrants during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Under President Joe Biden, Title 42 has been caught up in a long-term legal battle.  A federal judge appointed in 1994 by President Bill Clinton recently ordered the policy removed by Dec. 21.  A total of 19 Republican-controlled states filed a request Monday with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit to delay removal of Title 42.  The Biden administration also appealed the ruling, but that won't stop it from lifting the policy at the deadline.

GOP Rep. Chip Roy Says Democrats [are] Using Migrants as 'Political Pawns'.  Republican Rep. Chip Roy, Texas, on Sunday, accused Democrats of using immigrants as "political pawns" while Americans suffer from the surge of border crossing at the southern border near El Paso, Texas.  "Democrats want to simply throw more money at the border and then process more human beings while they're getting abused.  They're the ones using them as political pawns for their crass political purposes.  They're using the Hispanic community," Roy said on "Fox News Sunday" with host Shannon Bream.  On Saturday, the mayor of El Paso declared a state of emergency as migrants were overwhelming shelters and detainment facilities at the border.  The influx comes days before Wednesday's expiration of Title 42, a Trump administration public health welfare policy restricting migrants from entering the country.

Governor Abbott: If Title 42 ends "it's gonna be total chaos" at the border.  Texas Governor Greg Abbott spoke with ABC's "This Week" co-anchor Martha Raddatz for an interview that aired Sunday morning.  Raddatz traveled to the southern border to see the Biden border crisis with the governor.  That's more than the president or the vice-president (the border czar) have done.  Abbott said that if Title 42 ends on Wednesday, as it is scheduled to do, he anticipates catastrophe along the southern border.  "If the courts do not intervene and put a halt to the removal of Title 42, it's gonna be total chaos."

Southern Texas Looks [Bad] After Over 4k Invaders Cross The Border Last Friday.  Video provided to Fox News by Texas Congressman Rep Tony Gonzales shows extreme overcrowding at the Border Patrol Central Processing Center in El Paso, TX.  Congressman Gonzales says he took the video on Friday when 4,600 migrants were in federal custody.  Capacity is only 1,040.  [Video clip]

Eric Adams warns there will be 15 busloads with thousands of migrants arriving in NYC each week after Title 42 is lifted.  New York City Mayor Eric Adams is warning that there will be 10 to 15 busloads bringing at least a thousand migrants to the Big Apple each week once Title 42 is lifted on Wednesday.  Title 42 border restrictions are a public health order that enabled U.S. authorities to turn back most migrants, including people seeking asylum from persecution.  The pandemic-era has been extended from its original endpoint in May to this Wednesday, December 21.

Now the rubber meets the road:  Is it a Sanctuary City or not?
Officials fear migrants will come to New York City in droves after Title 42 expires on Wednesday.  There are new fears that New York City could be hit with a surge of migrants.  This week, Title 42, a policy that has kept many asylum seekers from entering the country, is set to expire.  Mayor Eric Adams is warning that there could be upwards of 1,000 migrants bused into the city each and every week, if the policy is allowed to expire.  It's not clear how he arrived at that number, but it is clear that there is concern the system could be overwhelmed.  The U.S.-Mexico border has been packed with migrants desperate to get in.  Few have managed to cross over.  Most are kicked out under the Centers for Disease Control's Title 42 policy that was enacted during the Trump administration in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

L.A. Times Poll: 65% of Americans Oppose Biden's 'Catch and Release' into U.S. for Border Crossers, Illegal Aliens.  A majority of Americans oppose President Joe Biden's expansive "Catch and Release" network releasing tens of thousands of border crossers into American towns and cities every month, a new poll finds.  According to the latest Los Angeles Times/YouGov poll, 65 percent of Americans said Biden's Department of Homeland Security (DHS) ought to be either detaining border crossers and illegal aliens or immediately deporting them to their native countries after they arrive at the United States-Mexico border.

Now that the mid-term election is over...
Democratic El Paso mayor declares state of emergency amid border crisis.  As recently as Thursday, the Democratic Mayor of El Paso, Texas, Oscar Leeser, had refused to declare a state of emergency in his city, even as thousands of illegal migrants flooded the area, with masses of people sleeping on the streets.  The mayor quickly walked away after announcing his decision without answering any questions from reporters.  But yesterday, less than 48 hours later, Leeser reversed course and declared a state of emergency as the Wednesday deadline for lifting Title 42 loomed.  He claimed to have reached the decision following a conference call with federal, state, and local officials.  What remains unclear is what he will be able to do with any additional funds and resources that are made available as a result of this declaration.

Border disaster is not an act of God — it's an act of Biden.  Don't let anyone tell you the border isn't a disaster.  Mayor Eric Adams has asked FEMA for $1 billion to cope with the consequences of the Biden administration's refusal to enforce the border.  FEMA's responsibilities include dealing with wildfires, floods, hurricanes, earthquakes, and now, another kind of disaster:  an open border.  And it's about to get worse.  This Wednesday, December 21, something called Title 42 is supposed to end (though a judge may keep it going a little longer).  The program was a holdover from the COVID pandemic and allows Border Patrol agents to bounce illegal border-jumpers back into Mexico without getting a hearing or making an asylum claim.  It was the only Trump-era immigration-related measure the Biden people kept in place, though they've been using it less and less.

Federal judge says Biden can't yet end Trump-era 'Remain in Mexico' immigration policy.  A federal judge in Texas has put on hold for now the Biden administration's most recent attempt to end the so-called "Remain in Mexico" program.  US District Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk is pausing the termination of the program that was outlined in an October 2021 policy memo while litigation around that memo continues.  The ruling marks a setback in President Joe Biden's effort to end the controversial Trump-era policy, which sends certain non-Mexican citizens who entered the US back to Mexico — instead of detaining them or releasing them into the US — while their immigration proceedings played out.

Study Finds NGOs Shipping Illegal Immigrants Across The U.S. — Republicans Respond With An Amnesty Bill.  Over the weekend, a massive caravan of more than 5,000 crossed the southern border in what is described as "a stunning surge that shocked immigration agents, neighboring towns, and state officials."  Where will these illegals end up?  Most likely, everywhere inside the U.S., courtesy of several non-profit groups that are working with the Biden administration in an under-the-radar mass resettlement effort.  An investigation by the Heritage Foundation tracked more than 30,000 cell phones that arrived at Customs and Border Control facilities or dozens of non-profits at or near the southern border in January 2022.  It then tracked those phones over time to see where they ended up.  For example, Heritage identified more than 400 cell phones at the CBP station in Del Rio, Texas, less than five miles from the border.  Those phones later showed up in more than 40 different states.

The GOP Is Gambling on a Bill That Could Give Conservatives a Reason to Never Vote for Them Again.  I never thought I'd see the day when some Republicans would willingly back a mass amnesty bill and be blind to the fact that the only people who gain to benefit from this push, both in the immediate and long term, are Democrats.  In the words of Ellen Ripley, "nuke the entire site from orbit" when it comes to this bill, which we have railed against since the first details were made public.  The bill has many border security measures logrolled in, serving as an ammunition belt for the members of Congress who need to sell this legislation back home as a border security measure.  More money for border patrol agents, salary hikes for current officers, and an expedited deportation process for migrants who fail to meet asylum benchmarks.  The flanking maneuver here is something you already know:  the two million Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals recipients who will be put on the citizenship track and who could then sponsor their extended family members once they're through the process.  We're talking millions of people, and it doesn't disincentivize illegal immigration.  If anything, it resets for another massive amnesty move in a generation or two, so it doesn't secure the border, doesn't take the issue off the table, and is a classic kick the can down the road move we often see from elected officials.  The only difference is it's the GOP that is going to get screwed.

Giant Illegal Immigrant Caravans Cross Into El Paso Before Title 42 Expires.  Multiple illegal immigrant caravans have crossed into El Paso, Texas, totaling in the thousands, as people are making their way to the U.S.-Mexico border before Title 42 will no longer be enforced toward the end of the month.  Videos show illegal immigrants easily crossing the shallow Rio Grande from Ciudad Juarez with no Mexican law enforcement stopping them.  Due to the large volume of people, they have to wait in lines after they cross and create small fires to stay warm.

Migrants Let Into U.S. With GPS Trackers Underreported 600%.  During a recent trip to Arizona, President Biden was asked by Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy why he wasn't planning on visiting the border — Arizona and Texas are ground zero for a migrant crisis that has spilled into the entire country[.]  "Why go to a border state and not visit the border?" Doocy asked.  "Because there are more important things going on," Biden responded. "They're going to invest billions of dollars in a new enterprise."  Last month, White House press secretary dismissed all GOP border visits as "political stunts."  But the Biden Administration knows the numbers don't look good down south — a record number 73,000 "gotaways" were logged in November; Since the fiscal year started on Oct. 1, there have already been 137,000 "gotaways" counted, sources told Fox News.  Now we know, according to an exclusive Daily Caller report, that the Biden Administration may be intentionally downplaying the number of migrants released into the U.S. with a GPS tracker.

Border Patrol Union Blasts Biden, Tweets 'This Is Not Leadership, It's Cowardice'.  After President Joe Biden refused to visit the Southern border despite being nearby on a visit to Arizona — saying "there are more important things going on" — the Border Patrol Union on Wednesday took to Twitter to blast the president's handling of the crisis.  "Joe Biden created this massive, chaotic mess at our border with his policies," they wrote:  [Tweet]  Biden has not visited the border a single time during his presidency.  What are the "more important things" Biden had to do instead of dealing with the surge in border crossings?  Why, he needed to tour a Taiwanese chip manufacturing plant.  Meanwhile, Wednesday brought more sad news; a 38-year-old patrol agent was killed in a high-speed ATV crash that occurred as he was pursuing a group of migrants.  He was the father of two children.  Not that important, I guess.

Treason Lobby Tries To Pass Amnesties In Lame Duck, With Help From Traitor Sen. Tom Tillis (Chamber Of Commerce-NC).  Amnesty supporters in Congress desperately want to pass some type of reward for illegal aliens before the GOP takes over the House in January.  They offer two proposals.  One will legalize illegal farm workers; another will legalize illegals who came to the U.S. as minors (the so-called "DREAMers").  What makes these bills a threat is that some traitorous Republicans support them.  Indeed, the new DREAMer Amnesty was crafted specifically to win that support.  But these efforts to accelerate the Great Replacement might be the last chance the Treason Lobby and its backers in Congress have to achieve Amnesty for the next two years.

Will GOP Commit Political Suicide With Bipartisan Amnesty Bill?  One of the more frustrating aspects of being a conservative Republican is the constant need to look over one's shoulder for stealth attacks by moderate squish members of the GOP on important issues like health care, gun control, and amnesty for illegal immigrants.  Such ideological shivs in the back always arrive under the execrable guise of bipartisanship. [...] I cannot begin to ponder what [Senator Thom] Tillis's rationale is for signing onto this.  He should probably be put into the NFL concussion protocols because a Republican with all of his faculties fully functioning would know that this is a horrible idea.  Even Sinema's sponsorship is disappointing, given that she often acts in the best interests of Arizona even when her fellow Democrats are excoriating her for doing so.  As a native of this great state and someone who lives a mere 60 miles from the Mexican border, I can assure this is not in the best interests of the citizenry here.  The second tier free-for-all in this bill is what is particularly galling, and makes any Republican support for it unforgivable.  It's as if they want to merely crack open the gate for a short while, then fling it all the way open when they hope no one is looking.

Amnesty for DACA Flunks Border Security Test.  The U.S.'s nearly two-year-old border crisis continues unabated, yet Senate Democrats and some Republicans are foolishly resuming a push to grant amnesty to hundreds of thousands — and perhaps millions — of people living in this country illegally.  There is a simple test to determine if a given policy will reduce illegal immigration, and amnesty — whether for Deferred Action Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients or any other group — clearly fails the test.  Illegal aliens coming to the U.S. generally want five things.  They want to enter the country, stay here, work here, send money home, and bring family here.  Policies that allow or facilitate any of those five elements encourage more illegal immigration.  Policies that prevent those goals decrease illegal immigration.

Oversight Project Investigation Uncovers Shocking Facts About Who's Facilitating Biden Border Crisis.  The Heritage Foundation's Oversight Project, and Border Security and Immigration Center, today released new information documenting the scope not just of the Biden border crisis, but the role of non-governmental organizations in facilitating and continuing it.  In a new memo titled, "Tracking Movement of Illegal Aliens from NGOs to Interior of USA", the Oversight Project unveiled new data showing the massive numbers of illegal aliens who have made their way to NGO facilities physically located along the border and in border states, and subsequently traveled throughout the United States.  As part of the Oversight Project's work to document NGO involvement in the border crisis, the Project launched an investigation which ultimately obtained a sampling of approximately 30,000 unique and anonymized mobile devices that were geofenced to a number of these NGOs along the border.  These locations were chosen based on human source information, as well as open-source intelligence, that they may be involved in helping illegal aliens travel from the border to various parts of the interior.

Texas Steps Up Border Militarization with Deployment of 10 Armored Carriers.  Texas Governor Greg Abbott ordered the deployment of ten M113 armored personnel carriers to the state's southern border with Mexico.  The action by the Texas governor is in response to the federal government's anticipated ending of the Title 42 migrant expulsion protocol and the expected increase in border crossings.  The ten M113 armored personnel carriers (APC) left staging areas near Fort Hood earlier this week and are being transported by trailer to the Texas border region, according to information obtained from Texas Military Department officials.

Seven more Texas counties express support for declaring invasion at border; bringing total to 40.  Forty Texas counties have now declared an invasion at the southern U.S. border with Mexico, or have expressed support for Texas declaring an invasion.  More are in the process of doing so, according to sources who've spoken to The Center Square.  The most recent to join the invasion call include the judges and commissioners of Collin, Fannin, Leon, Navarro, Shackelford, Somervell and Waller counties.  They are calling on Texas Gov. Greg Abbott to formally declare an invasion and repel it, which he has yet to do.  The governor cited the invasion clauses of the Texas Constitution and U.S. Constitution in a Nov. 14 letter to county judges and in a Nov. 16 letter to President Joe Biden.  He also wrote letters to the heads of the Texas Military Department and Department of Public Safety.

What happens when the federal government no longer protects the states against invasion?  The past few weeks have given rise to several uncomfortable questions. [...] What is the point of voting and elections in general if the voice of the people isn't heard?  What is the point of paying for a government indoctrination system (schools) that turns out people who vote for their own enslavement?  What do we do when state governments buy votes with other people's money, cruelly taken by force?  What happens when the federal government no longer protects the states against invasion?  That last one is particularly troubling, because the states entered into a contractual agreement, and it is being flouted, in our faces, daily.  Anti-liberty authoritarians of the fascist far left regularly lie about this fact, telling us that "the border is secure."  But how is there an illegal invader crisis in New York City and around the nation if "the border is secure"?

ICE Caught Massively Underreporting Illegals Released into US w/o Tracking Equipment.  An internal document from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement revealed that the organization is underreporting the number of illegal immigrants released into the US without any tracking technology by more than 18,000%.  ICE distributed the document to raise awareness internally about their "Alternatives to Detention" program.  The program was put in place in 2004 in an effort to monitor illegal immigrants with ankle bracelets and cell phones as they wait for their court date to determine citizenship.  According to the Daily Caller, there are 49,459 untracked and unmonitored illegal aliens in America.  This figure is vastly different than the estimate on the ICE website, which claims there are only 266 untracked migrants.

Joe Biden's 2023 Border Plan: Two Migrants for Every American Birth.  President Joe Biden's border agency expects 9,000 to 14,000 economic migrants per day after officials remove the Title 42 legal barrier in late December, says CNN.  The predicted inflow adds up to roughly 4.5 million migrants per year or more than one extra southern migrant for every American birth in the United States.  The southern flow of roughly 4.5 million will add to the annual inflow of roughly 2 million legal immigrants, visa workers, and tourists illegally taking jobs.

What does Martha's Vineyard have to do with Southern poverty?
Southern Poverty Law Center sues Gov. DeSantis over migrant flight to Martha's Vineyard.  Yesterday the Southern Poverty Law Center filed a lawsuit against Gov. DeSantis arguing that Florida's flight of about 50 migrants to Martha's Vineyard was unconstitutional. [...] I'm not an attorney but at first glance the claim that Florida was usurping the US government's role in immigration policy doesn't make a lot of sense to me.  There's plenty of evidence that once the border patrol has walked migrants through the process of claiming asylum the federal government mostly takes a hands off approach to what happens next.  If migrants want to catch a bus to New York or Chicago or San Francisco the federal government isn't stepping in to prevent them from doing that, at least not that I've seen.

U.S. Air Marshals Planning Rebellion After Biden Orders Them To Southern Border: Report.  U.S. air marshals reportedly plan to "mutiny" against an order from the White House to leave their posts aboard commercial flights and take up posts at the U.S. southern border.  Dozens of marshals have promised to disobey the order in protest, Air Marshal National Council President David Londo told The Washington Examiner.  President Joe Biden has ordered U.S. air marshals to the southern border to make up for a lack of Border Patrol agents, a move expected to leave the marshals at one-eighth their normal coverage of U.S. flights.  "The rank and file air marshals are going to refuse to deploy and risk termination," Londo said.  "You're almost going to have a mutiny of a federal agency, which is unheard of."  "Morale is so destroyed from this," he added.  "I've never seen anything like this."

Joe Biden's 'Wide Open' Border Expected to Bring 2.6M Illegal Aliens to U.S. Next Year.  President Joe Biden's "wide open" United States-Mexico border is expected to see 2.6 million border crossers and illegal aliens apprehended next year, a new analysis projects.  For 2021, Steven Kopits with Princeton Policy Advisors accurately projected that about two million border crossers and illegal aliens would be apprehended.  By this year's end, Kopits projects about 2.3 million will have been apprehended.  These estimates do not include the hundreds of thousands, potentially millions, who will successfully cross the southern border.

Quebec Sets Plan to Bar Most Immigrants Who Don't Speak French.  Quebec Premier Francois Legault, concerned about the decline of the French language in the Canadian province, has set a new goal for immigrants:  They should all speak French.  Legault's nationalist Coalition Avenir Quebec party was re-elected with a huge majority in October, partly on a platform of protecting French as the dominant language in the province of 8.7 million people.  His speech to the legislature Wednesday laid out his priorities for his second term, including a plan to bar almost all economic immigrants who don't speak French by 2026.

Citizenship and Intervening in Elections.  With the ongoing invasion over the last two years by millions of foreigners at our southern border, America has a much bigger election integrity problem than before Joe Biden became president.  So, just how did California, Arizona, New Mexico and other states with large enclaves of illegal aliens ensure that the recent invaders (as well as the millions of previous invaders from decades past) didn't vote in the November 8 federal elections?  You see, noncitizen voting in federal elections is illegal.  But Democrats seem to see nothing wrong with the invasion.  Indeed, the Left wants illegal aliens to be able to vote in America's elections; see "Why Non-Citizens Should Be Allowed to Vote" by Ron Hayduk at Jacobin.  (Americans who believe in the ideal of citizenship won't approve of Mr. Hayduk.)  However, if anyone can vote in America's elections, then just what is the value of American citizenship?  Given all the freebies the feds are handing out to the invaders, some citizens may see the invaders as having more rights than they have.

How the Biden admin quietly converts illegal immigrants into legal 'parolees'.  Maria Esperanza Diaz Ruiz had expected to pay a smuggler to get across the U.S.-Mexico border.  Then she learned that the Biden administration's new program would let her walk into the country at no cost as long as she had a tale of woe from back home.  She is one of the migrants taking advantage of a Biden policy that is converting illegal immigrants into legal "parolees," a status that offers a work permit and a foothold in the U.S., according to the Center for Immigration Studies, which observed Ms. Diaz Ruiz and others.  "This is real," she told the center's Todd Bensman.  "This is not a magic trick."

National Border Patrol President Slams Biden For 'Lying' About Border Crisis.  Since President Joe Biden has taken office, the 2022 fiscal year saw more than 2.76 million illegal migrants cross over the southern border, however, officials say that number is higher since most encounters were never apprehended.  In total, at least five million immigrants have entered the U.S. illegally under Biden's failed border policies.  And yet, the Biden Administration insists that the crisis is under control.  Meanwhile, the National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd is accusing the Biden White House of continuing to "deflect and lie" about the ongoing problem.  He accused the Biden Administration of "trying to set a new normal" in which the liberal media is pushing the new narrative.  They don't have to make changes if the American public isn't upset about what's going on," Judd said, adding that if the liberal media ignores the issue, people won't know how bad the border crisis is.

Politico: The border crisis is probably about to get worse once Title 42 ends.  As Beege pointed out last week, the Biden administration won a battle in court which will put an end to Title 42 as a means of turning back migrants at the border.  As of the judge's order, the clock is now ticking with the pandemic-era rule set to expire on December 21. [...] A group of 15 states filed a motion Monday to fight the judge's decision but there's no telling how that will turn out.  Since it was implemented in March 2020 about 2 million migrants have been turned away under Title 42.  Now that it is set to end in less than four weeks, there's a real possibility it's going to result in significantly more chaos at the border.

The Democrats' Plan to Give Illegal Aliens a Path to the Voting Booth.  Now that the 2022 election is over, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has condescended to announce the Democrats' plan to give a path to citizenship, that is, a path to the voting booth, to all the people, however many millions of them, who broke US law by sneaking into the United States illegally.  However, since US citizens, by a large margin, still believe that people should actually follow the law if they want to become US citizens, despite campaigns by the Democrats and their socialist cronies to undermine respect for the United States and for the rule of law, Chuck could not give this information to the peasants before the election because they would not have supported Democrats in that case.

Legalizing illegals vs. having babies.  On Nov. 16, Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., stated that the United States needed more immigrants to offset the low birth rate of Americans.  He added that because of the low birth rate, the U.S. needed to provide a path to citizenship for illegal aliens (somewhere between 11 and 40 million of them now in the country) and for "Dreamers."  Bloomberg Business Week pointed out Nov. 7 how the birth rate in America is too low to sustain and grow the population and that the poorest and least-educated countries have the higher birth rates.  The countries that can afford children have the lowest birth rates, while those countries that can least afford them have the highest.  In "The Demographic Cliff," Harry Dent pointed out almost 20 years ago that the low birth rates in Caucasian countries, industrialized countries, would cause tremendous problems.  The Caucasian portion of the world's population fell from 25% to 10% in just 30 years.

Republican States Move To Keep Major Trump-Era Border Policy Amid Surge In Illegal Immigration.  Over a dozen Republican states are urging a judge to keep Title 42, a major Trump-era border policy, according to court documents filed Monday [11/21/2022].  Arizona, Louisiana, Alabama, Alaska, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia and Wyoming asked D.C. Judge Emmet Sullivan if they could intervene in the case in which Title 42, which has been used to expel over one million migrants to mitigate the COVID-19 pandemic, was overturned, according to the request.  Sullivan ruled on Nov. 15 that the Biden administration must end the policy in late December, giving them time to prepare for an expected influx of illegal migrants at the southern border.  When Title 42 ends, that influx will directly impact the Republican states, they argued.

Democrats don't want any real immigration law.  Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer made some startling admissions last week about his immigration views:  "We have a population that is not reproducing on its own with the same level that it used to.  The only way we're going to have a great future in America is if we welcome and embrace immigrants, the Dreamers and all of them, because our ultimate goal is to help the Dreamers but to get a path to citizenship for all 11 million or however many undocumented there are here."  The honesty was breathtaking.  For so long, Schumer (D-NY) and his party have danced around the truth: They want to legalize anyone coming over our border for any reason.

Joe Biden's sneaky new 'alternative immigration program' escorting migrants in from Mexico, work permits in hand.  The ending of Title 42 COVID restrictions on illegal migrants by a federal judge pretty well signalled to millions of migrants that the border's open and no federal official can stop them so long as they utter the magic word 'asylum.'  That alone is grounds to expect the mother of all border surges.  But why stop there?  Rather than enforcing immigration laws and asylum abuse as the U.S. laws require, the White House has come up with a sneaky new plan to spirit the millions of migrants massing now at the border in without the Fox News helicopter cameras on them.  Why secret?  Because with immigration law itself not stopping the Bidenites, the one thing that might is the public relations problem as millions of migrants surge at the border ahead of that Jan. 1 kickoff.  That is why the new Biden program is being done on the quiet.

Report: Senate Republicans Start Amnesty Talks with DACA Illegal Aliens.  A handful of Senate Republicans reportedly started talks with illegal aliens enrolled in and eligible for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program as House and Senate Democrats, along with corporate special interest allies, hope to pass an amnesty in the lame-duck Congress.  This week, DACA illegal aliens and open borders activists descended on Washington, DC, in their efforts to lobby ten Senate Republicans to join Democrats in passing an amnesty — before the GOP takes control of the House — that would secure them green cards and, eventually, naturalized American citizenship.

Yale Study Finds Twice as Many Undocumented Immigrants as Previous Estimates.  Immigration is the focus of fierce political and policy debate in the United States.  Among the most contentious issues is how the country should address undocumented immigrants.  Like a tornado that won't dissipate, arguments have spun around and around for years.  At the center lies a fairly stable and largely unquestioned number: 11.3 million undocumented immigrants residing in the U.S.  But a paper by three Yale-affiliated researchers suggests all the perceptions and arguments based on that number may have a faulty foundation; the actual population of undocumented immigrants residing in the country is much larger than that, perhaps twice as high, and has been underestimated for decades.  Using mathematical modeling on a range of demographic and immigration operations data, the researchers estimate there are 22.1 million undocumented immigrants in the United States.  Even using parameters intentionally aimed at producing an extremely conservative estimate, they found a population of 16.7 million undocumented immigrants.

Chuck Schumer says we should welcome more migrants because the population is 'not reproducing on its own'.  Sen. Majority Leader Chuck Schumer made a fresh pitch for amnesty Wednesday when he claimed the U.S. is 'short of workers' so Congress needs to pass a 'path to citizenship' for 'however many undocumented there are here'.  'We're short of workers, we have a population that is not reproducing on its own with the same level that it used to,' the New York Democrat reasoned.  'The only way we're going to have a great future is if we welcome and embrace immigrants... get a path to citizenship for all 11 million or however many there are here.'

Chuck Schumer: If We Can't Have Babies, We Need Illegal Alien Workers.  The Democrat left-wing policy platform includes unlimited abortion, denunciation of the traditional family, declarations that excessive populations create climate crisis and other less obvious points of advocacy that eliminate domestic population growth.  However, in order for left-wing politicians to continue advancing ridiculous ideological policy, they must pretend not to know things.  Here comes Senator Chuck Schumer.  During a pantomime script to advance the goal of amnesty for illegal aliens, Chuck Schumer pretends not to know his party agenda is to reduce the American workforce.  Now Senator Schumer claims the absence of a growing population is the reason why amnesty for illegal aliens must be accomplished.  [Video clip]

To put it another way...
Sen. Schumer calls for replacement of Americans who can't have babies after mRNA depopulation jabs.  Yes, you are being replaced.  Once derided as a racist conspiracy theory, "replacement theory" is not only confirmed but even touted by Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer who yesterday claimed that millions of illegals must be granted amnesty because the US population "is not reproducing on its own."  Of course, that's because so-called "vaccine" injections — actually mRNA depopulation bioweapons — are causing widespread abortions, stillbirths, infertility and deaths.  As expert analyst Ed Dowd told this reporter yesterday, post-vaccine excess mortality across the population at large is running around 32%, meaning an extra 2,400+ Americans are dying each day thanks to the mRNA jabs.  And that's on top of the 7,700 or so that normally die each day, bringing the total daily deaths in America right now beyond 10,000.  After pushing the genocidal vaccine, Sen. Schumer's claim that "we have a population that is not reproducing on its own" seems tone deaf.  Does he not realize his own vaccine mandates are killing off Americans?  (Most likely, he knows full well.)

Testimony: Biden Takes Air Marshals Off Flights, Deploys them to Conduct Welfare Checks on Illegal Aliens.  President Joe Biden's Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is taking Federal Air Marshals off domestic commercial flights to have them conduct welfare checks on border crossers and illegal aliens, Rep. Jeff Van Drew (R-NJ) said in congressional testimony on Tuesday.  In July, Breitbart News exclusively reported that Biden's DHS had deployed Air Marshals to the southern border to escort border crossers and illegal aliens from processing facilities to Border Patrol custody before their release into American communities.

The Editor says...
There's no good reason to tell everybody in the world that there are no more Air Marshals.

NYC migrant crisis will cost city $600M every year, watchdog says.  New York City's migrant crisis will cost "at least" $596 million in public funds each year, according to a Monday report from the city's Independent Budget Office.  City Hall will rack up the costs thanks to offering shelter, healthcare, education and legal aid to thousands of migrants who have been bussed to the city by Republican state governments in Florida and Texas, according to the New York Post.  The arrival of an additional 10,000 asylum seekers — assuming the current mix of households remains consistent — would increase costs by around $246 million," IBO Acting Director George Sweeting wrote in the report.  "The total cost of providing the identified city services cannot be estimated with certainty as the number of people arriving continues to evolve," he added.

Treason without consequences — Joe Biden's open border policy.  The Biden administration is getting away with a massive outrage against our nation and its citizens.  Illegal immigration, which poses an existential threat to the U.S., is being enabled by our government and no one seems the least bit interested in putting an end to it.  Millions of unvetted migrants are streaming across the border and being shipped to secret destinations in direct violation of U.S. immigration law.  This is nothing short of treasonous.  Mass illegal immigration, if unchecked, will eventually lead to the destruction of the two-party system and the forced implementation of socialism by the left wing of the Democratic Party.  When millions of aliens are permitted to enter the U.S. illegally and sanctuary cities and states can deliberately disregard federal statutes, the rule of law becomes a thing of the past and we no longer have a country.

Texas governor says 300th busload of migrants heading to Chicago.  Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced on Thursday that the 300th busload of migrants is heading from the Lone Star State to Chicago.  "The 300th Texas bus of migrants just left for Chicago.  As Biden does nothing, Texas will continue taking unprecedented action to relieve our overwhelmed border communities & secure the border," Abbott tweeted.  [Tweet]

Days After Election, Joe Biden Extends 'Temporary' Amnesty to 305K Foreign Nationals in U.S..  President Joe Biden's Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is extending temporary amnesty status to hundreds of thousands of foreign nationals from a variety of countries living in the United States who would otherwise be eligible for deportation.  Just a few days after Tuesday's midterm elections, Biden's DHS filed an automatic extension in the federal register that will allow more than 305,000 foreign nationals from El Salvador, Honduras, Haiti, Nepal, Nicaragua, and Sudan to remain in the U.S. and hold American jobs.  The bulk, about 194,000, are nationals from El Salvador.

It isn't a "failed presidency" if all this destruction is intentional.
Biden is gaslighting Americans about his failed presidency.  [Scroll down] Above all, though, this administration may be remembered for its duplicity — its continual, shameless "gaslighting" of the American people.  Biden, his team, and his sycophantic media supporters repeatedly tell us that "all is well" where it manifestly is not.  No matter how bad things become in the nation, no matter how many people suffer, reality has no purchase on the ideological bubble of this White House.  That is why, in these midterm elections, the American people must deliver to Joe Biden an unequivocal message: that they refuse to be gaslit, that they are not buying what he is selling.  Biden and his staff spin not simply to be optimistic.  They do so to cover up the often deadly consequences of their policy decisions.  This is certainly the case as regards Biden's open border.  The president's reversal of Trump-era border enforcement, and his effective encouragement of illegal border crossings, has led to widespread human suffering.  Migrants have been dying in record numbers as they make their journeys, often under the control of coyotes and human smugglers.  Americans are dying, too, as toxic fentanyl pours into the nation.

New York's Legal System Plunged Into Chaos Thanks To Massive Influx Of Migrants.  New York's legal system is plunging into chaos over the huge influx of migrants coming to the state, according to The New York Times.  The surge in migrants coming to New York from the border are overwhelming the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) field office in Manhattan, the Times reported Thursday.  New York City, which already is one of the top states for immigration backlogs, has received thousands of migrants bused by Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, who is attempting to send a message to sanctuary cities and the Biden administration about the surge in illegal migration border states are struggling to support.  Over 21,000 migrants have come to New York City, adding to the around 180,000 pending cases sitting in the hands of just 88 judges in New York State immigration courts, according to the Times.

DHS Scrambled After Townhall Report Exposed Mayorkas' Horrible Meeting With Border Patrol.  Emails within the Department of Homeland Security show the hurried response the agency was crafting after Townhall broke the story of Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas having a disastrous meeting with Border Patrol agents in the Yuma Sector in January of this year.  The emails, obtained by the Heritage Foundation's Oversight Project and first reported by Fox News, shows an email chain with DHS officials describing how poorly the meeting in Yuma went.  "Morning muster in Yuma was ROUGH," Marsha Espinosa, assistant secretary of DHS public affairs, says in the Jan. 26 email.  "One agent in the front town had his back turned to [Mayorkas] the entire time only to ask a question and then turned back.  "Agent sentiment (the ones that spoke up) is that policies aren't working, don't like masks or vaxx mandate.  [Ortiz] stepped up to provide support and asked to intro [Mayorkas] next time to better set up," Espinosa added.

America Is On The Cusp Of A Fundamental Transformation.  [Scroll down]  And this is where Joe Biden is fulfilling Barack Obama's goal.  He invited essentially anyone willing to make the trip to come to the United States by telling them that they would not be detained and they would be able to get healthcare.  Not surprisingly, millions of people from impoverished nations crossed the border into Club Biden.  Since Biden became president it's estimated that more than 5.5 million illegal immigrants have crossed the southern border.  And that doesn't include the hundreds of thousands or millions who crossed and were never seen by the Border Patrol in the first place.  There is something called "replacement theory" which Democrats label as a conspiracy theory amongst racist whites.  It's not that.  As Tucker Carlson demonstrates in a piece from earlier this year, replacement theory isn't a right-wing conspiracy theory at all but is, instead, a plan Democrats have spoken about for years.  As they will tell you, the goal is to outnumber the mostly White, American-born population with people who look and think differently. [...] At this rate, by the end of Joe Biden's first term, as many as 15 million new illegal aliens could be here, all of whom need healthcare, schooling, food, shelter, and clothing, provided free of charge by American taxpayers already struggling to put food on the table and fuel in their cars, and keep a roof over their heads.  That is a fundamental transformation.  Once those 15 million people get to vote, Republicans will never win another election and America will become San Francisco.  But "they're not citizens," you say, and they can't vote.  Given the current state of affairs and the Democrats' fading allure among actual Americans, how long do you think before that changes?

CIS Estimates that 5.55 million Green Card Holders Have Expired Cards.  A Center for Immigration Studies' examination of current USCIS datasets suggests that, of the nearly 13 million green card holders in the U.S., 5.5 million have expired green cards, and neither they nor the government seem to be worried about it.  (It's important to note that an alien's permanent resident status doesn't lapse if the card expires.)  According to the most recent USCIS estimates, as of January of this year there were an estimated 12.88 million green card holders in the nation, 970,000 of them having arrived before 1980.  Since the vast majority of green cards are valid for 10 years, we might assume, given a fairly steady volume of legal immigration, that every year 1,288,000 of them would expire and would need replacement.  This is a conservative estimate because under some circumstances a card would need to be replaced more than once every 10 years — some aliens change their names or report lost or stolen cards, while still others, for technical reasons, need new cards.

Illegal entry at the border is a lot like turnstile jumping.  To enter the United States legally, a foreign national must either obtain a visa at a U.S. consulate abroad or be exempted from that visa requirement.  The visa process can be complex.  An applicant must apply and provide a passport, and if it's an immigrant visa, have received an approved visa petition.  Immigrant visa holders also need a medical exam and often a certificate from the local police showing no criminal history.  Once the applicant has the visa, he or she must then come to the United States and go through the CBP inspections process at the port of entry.  Those two checks — one at the consulate and one at the port — are akin to the turnstiles in the WMATA metro system.  Illegal entrants avoid the consular process entirely, and any medical or criminal-background check to which they are subject once apprehended is perfunctory.  Nearly 690,000 of them were apprehended and released by Border Patrol in FY 2022 alone, putting the efforts of even the most strident turnstile jumpers in the NYC or D.C. transit systems to shame.

Half a Million Aliens [have been] Released into the U.S. on 'Alternatives to Detention'.  U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has enrolled nearly 500,000 aliens in its Alternatives to Detention ("ATD") program between August 2020 and June 2022, according to data obtained by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University.  ICE uses ATD to release aliens subject to mandatory immigration detention and monitor their location, primarily with mobile device apps or ankle bracelets that enable GPS monitoring.  Notably, the data TRAC obtained shows that, since 2021, ICE has drastically shortened the amount of time it monitors aliens enrolled in ATD and has ceased to monitor (or has "unenrolled") nearly 200,000 aliens who are subject to mandatory detention under federal law.  Federal law requires ICE to detain certain aliens, including most recent border crossers and certain criminal aliens, pending the completion of their removal proceedings.  Congress mandated detention to guarantee that these aliens will appear for their removal hearings and for actual removal from the United States.  The original goal of ATD, which has been used by the government to various degrees since at least 1997, was to ensure aliens enrolled in the program show up to their immigration hearings without imposing the costs of detention onto the government (i.e., taxpayers).  In the context of border apprehensions, ICE has increased its use of ATD to circumvent the Immigration and Nationality Act's detention requirements and allow inadmissible aliens to live and work (not always legally) in the United States.

House Republicans Demand CBP Commissioner Resign.  A group of House Republicans, led by Georgia Rep. Jody Hice, sent a letter to President Joe Biden on Tuesday requesting that he call for the resignation of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Commissioner Chris Magnus.  In the letter, first obtained by the Daily Caller, the Hice and 15 GOP lawmakers mention a report from Politico in which five current Biden administration officials who work with Magnus told the outlet that he is unengaged in his job.  The sources also told Politico that Magnus does not attend White House meetings about the border crisis, talks disparagingly about other agencies to other CBP officials and has not built relationships with CBP or other agencies.  The lawmakers said that, in light of the report, Magnus should be forced to resign and that the next CBP commissioner must be willing to focus on the border crisis.

Migrants kicked out of US are erecting huge tent city on Mexican border in hopes of re-entering.  Migrants kicked out of the US are amassing on the Mexican side of the border, erecting a tent city while waiting for another chance to enter the US.  "We're all waiting for an opportunity to cross," Gilfred Jimenez, a Venezuelan who has not yet attempted to enter the US but intends to, told the El Paso Times.  Jimenez is living in a tent city that has sprung up in Juarez, the Mexican city directly across the border from El Paso, Texas.  The encampment is made up of both Venezuelans rejected at the border and Venezuelans who were on their way to the US but had not reached the border before President Joe Biden made a major announcement Oct. 13.  The Biden Administration said it would begin expelling Venezuelans, even those seeking asylum, from the US if they entered the country illegally at the Southern border.  A record number of Venezuelans — 189,000 crossed the southern border of the US — as people fled the dictatorship and economic uncertainty.

The Editor says...
Every country has "economic uncertainty," especially the United States, thanks to the reckless tax-and-spend socialist Democrats and their senile puppet, Joe Biden.  The immigrants are coming here because we have food stamps and an excessively high minimum wage.

House Judiciary Republicans demand Biden admin preserve docs related to border crisis, as probes loom.  Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee are demanding that the Biden administration preserve documents related to the ongoing crisis at the southern border — as Republicans lay the groundwork for investigations and hearings on the matter in the next Congress.  Reps.  Jim Jordan, the ranking member, and Tom McClintock, the ranking member of the immigration subcommittee, wrote to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding the agencies preserve documents and materials related to border security.

Biden's Border Crisis Is Much Worse Than You Think.  In a clumsy effort to hide the latest and altogether shocking data on illegal border crossings, the Department of Homeland Security released its latest report in the dead of night last Friday.  Not that it mattered, since the mainstream press wouldn't have covered it no matter what.  But in this case, the numbers are shocking.  The reality is even more shocking.  DHS's Customs and Border Protection agency finally, after basically being forced into it, reported that it had "encountered" almost 2.8 million illegal border crossers in the past fiscal year (which ended Sept. 30).  That's up from 1.9 million last fiscal year And it's more than four times the number in President Trump's last year in office.

WashPost: Legalize More Migrants to Take American Jobs in Florida.  Millions of Americans have fallen out of the workforce, yet President Joe Biden's pro-migration deputies are allowing many illegal migrants to get disaster recovery jobs in Florida. [...] The government's decision to tolerate illegal workers is also a rejection of "a great opportunity to draw the millions of [non-working] men back to work," said Steven Camarota, the research director for the Center for Immigration Studies. [...] Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has denounced the hiring of illegal migrants in Florida.  In 2020, amid strong resistance from a business-dominated state legislature, he pushed through a useful bill that pressures employers to verify the legal status of some potential hires.

Biden's border disaster: Americans deserve solutions, not excuses.  Unlike the debate around the origins of COVID-19, the origins of the border crisis are unmistakably clear to reasonable Americans.  Communities across this country are overwhelmed from the human trafficking and fentanyl crisis because of the reckless policies of the Biden administration.  This isn't difficult or complicated.  When you tear down proven and effective border policies, fail to hold individuals accountable for breaking the law, and direct law enforcement officers to selectively enforce the law, the result is what we are witnessing today.

Tens of thousands of migrants have cases thrown out of immigration court, as docs not filed.  Tens of thousands of illegal immigrants had their cases thrown out by immigration judges after documents were not filed in time by Department of Homeland Security officials, according to newly released data.  Data obtained and analyzed by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University, found that 63,586 cases were dismissed in FY 2022 as of the end of September because officials, mainly Border Patrol agents, are not filing the Notice to Appear (NTA) in time.  Migrants who are apprehended by Border Patrol after entering the U.S. illegally in many cases are released into the U.S. with an NTA, which gives them a court date and address to appear for their immigration hearings.  NTAs are typically submitted to the immigration court by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) using data from Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

[The] Border Patrol [is] sending migrants to [the] wrong offices with no paperwork.  We have long been aware of the flood of humanity arriving at the nation's southern border for the past two years and the expectations that many of these migrants bring with them.  (The "Biden, Let Us In" shirts are still showing up regularly.)  Hundreds of thousands of these border jumpers escape without any form of processing and are classified as "gotaways" by the Border Patrol.  Among those who are interviewed, most wind up being sent on buses and planes to other parts of country, much to the consternation of the liberals who had proudly declared their enclaves to be "sanctuary cities" until some actual people in need of sanctuary began showing up.  But even among those who went through the full round of "processing" upon their arrival, problems have been developing.

Joe Biden Welcomes Foreign Population at Southern Border Greater than 15 States.  President Joe Biden's Department of Homeland Security (DHS) welcomed a foreign population at the United States-Mexico border in fiscal year 2022 that exceeds the populations of 15 states.  As Breitbart News reported, Biden's DHS has overseen the largest inflow of illegal immigration in a single fiscal year with more than 2.2 million border crossers and illegal aliens having arrived at the southern border from October 1, 2021, to September 20, 2022.  "We have simply never seen these numbers before in our history, and the Biden open-borders policies are the reason," former Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Chief Mark Morgan, a visiting fellow at the Heritage Foundation, said in a statement.

Democrat Texas mayor accused of lying about pressure from WH on handling migrant crisis.  El Paso City Council member Claudia Rodriguez called out the city's Democratic mayor Wednesday night, saying he has been caught in a lie.  Earlier on Fox News Wednesday, El Paso Mayor Oscar Leeser denied Rodriguez's allegation that he was pressured by the White House to avoid declaring the migrant influx an emergency in the city, insisting he made the decision himself.  "Absolutely not," Leeser told host Dana Perino.  "One of the things we need to learn and really make sure we do is that we take the politics out of this."

The Editor says...
Any time a Democrat insists that we "put our differences aside" or "take politics out of this discussion," it is an attempt to silence any dissenting opinions.  Tolerating, facilitating, and encouraging illegal immigration is done for political purposes.

NYC makes it clear where Blacks rank in the intersectional hierarchy.  Now that New York City is becoming a border state, thanks to incoming shipments of illegal aliens from the geographic border states, the city's mayor, Eric Adams, has gotten his act together and put out the welcome mat for people who have no right to be here in the first place.  The city's existing homeless, with special emphasis on homeless Blacks, have noticed that there's a gaping chasm between the quality of existing homeless shelters and the ones for the newbies — and the native New Yorkers are getting the short end of the stick. [...] This story out of New York City, however, tells us what the real "replacement" is:  American Blacks are being replaced as the Democrats' new favorite minority — illegal aliens.  Just look at the difference in treatment accorded the city's existing homeless, a disproportionate majority of whom are Black (Blacks account for more than 57% percent of the homeless, even as they make up only 20% of the city's population):  [Video clip]

Former border officials vow to release illegal migrant numbers by Tuesday if Biden admin won't.  Several former border officials vowed to release the number of illegal migrant crossings into the U.S. by Tuesday if the Biden administration hasn't by then.  Former Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Deputy Secretary Ken Cuccinelli, acting Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Commissioner Mark Morgan and acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Tom Homan accused the Biden administration of hiding the number of illegal southwestern border crossings in September.  The Trump-era officials pointed out that DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and CBP Commissioner Chris Magnus are required to release the numbers weekly and that if the numbers are not published by Tuesday, the former officials will do it themselves.

Criminal Cartels Have More Control of Our Border Than Biden Does.  You know your own government is against the people when it no longer even pretends it intends to protect the citizenry.  And our government, from Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to Alejandro Mayorkas, Merrick Garland, and Christopher Wray, has undertaken policies that harm Americans.  The Mexican criminal cartels effectively control the border.  North of the border, the humans and drugs they smuggle into the United States are wreaking havoc on our country.  South of the border, the cartels know that with Biden-Harris-Mayorkas in charge there are fat profits to be made from the illicit activity, so the cartels are now fighting a war to maintain control.  It is obvious that the cartels care more about the U.S.-Mexico border than the Biden regime does.

Biden Pressured Democrat Border Mayor Not to Declare Emergency over Illegal Immigration.  President Joe Biden's administration reportedly pressured El Paso, Texas, Mayor Oscar Leeser (D) not to declare a state of emergency over illegal immigration, even as thousands arrive in the small city every few days.  According to an exclusive report from the New York Post, El Paso officials privately and publicly say the Biden administration urged Leeser to hold off on calling a state of emergency over the issue of illegal immigration, which has hit historic levels this year.

Eight things that killed the Democrat Party.  [#7] Illegal Immigration:  From day one, the borders were flung open by the Democrat Party to drug traffickers, murderers, and myriad other miscreants in the hope they would be new Democrat votes.  As a result, crime is rampant, blue cities under Democrat rule are suffering and homelessness is on the rise, all the while Biden spokespeople are claiming the "border is closed."  Squealing like stuck pigs, places like New York City which have reluctantly become home to Texas' illegals, have seen a marked inability to safely house the very illegals they claim to have wanted to live in their "sanctuary city."

Biden's bogus border crackdown [is] backfiring.  President Biden clearly knows his disastrous border policies will hurt Democrats in the midterms, so he's suddenly gestured at doing something — and even that's backfiring.  Last week, his folks announced a deal to halt the flood of Venezuelan migrants at the border by expelling them to Mexico.  They also offered a path for 24,000 Venezuelans to enter legally, after finding a US sponsor.  (Who needs congressional approval?)  "There is a lawful and orderly way for Venezuelans to enter the United States, and lawful entry is the only way," Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas huffed. "Those who attempt to cross the southern border ... illegally will be returned to Mexico and will be ineligible for this process in the future."  Sounds tough — but Mayorkas (like Biden) has never told the truth about the border, falsely insisting it's been "secure" even as nearly 4 million have crossed illegally since Biden took office.

White House Pressured El Paso Mayor Not to Declare State of Emergency over Illegal Immigration.  President Biden pressured Democratic El Paso mayor Oscar Leeser to avoid declaring a state of emergency over the influx of illegal immigrants arriving daily, despite several members of the local city council urging otherwise, the New York Post reports.  One councilwoman, Claudia Rodriguez, told the Post that Leeser "told me the White House asked him not to" declare a state of emergency for fear it would make Biden look bad.  These sentiments were echoed by fellow Representative Veronica Escobar (D., Texas) during a September 27 council meeting.

Biden Admin Housed Record Number Of Unaccompanied Illegal Migrant Children.  U.S. shelters housed a record number of unaccompanied illegal migrant children under the Biden administration in 2022, according to CBS News.  Federal shelters housed nearly 130,000 unaccompanied illegal migrant children as border authorities saw record numbers of these migrants crossing into the U.S. illegally, CBS News reported, citing internal federal data.  In fiscal year 2021, there were 122,000 unaccompanied minors in federal shelters, leading to overcrowded conditions[.]  "Absent policy changes, we're likely to see a large number of unaccompanied minors for the foreseeable future," Andrew Selee, president of the Migration Policy Institute, told CBS News.  "Given the conditions in Central America, it makes sense for young people to try and make it to the U.S. to help their families or for families that are already here to bring their children."

Biden Regime Calls for North American Union.  Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, also known by his initials AMLO, recently announced that US Secretary of State Tony Blinken proposed opening all borders between the US, Mexico, and Canada.  President Obrador: "I think that Mr. Blinken spoke about consolidating the region of North America.  And we agree on that."  The plan would open up our borders permanently to the drug cartels running Mexico today.  It is the latest insanity proposed by the Biden regime to permanently destroy the United States.

ACLU, legal groups suing Biden admin for denying legal representation to detained migrants.  The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and other legal groups filed a lawsuit against Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on Thursday, alleging that migrants detained in four detention facilities in Florida, Louisiana, Texas and Arizona have been denied legal representation.  In the lawsuit, the plaintiffs allege that attorneys face "numerous obstacles" in attempting to communicate with detained migrants.  These obstacles, the lawsuit says, make representation "extremely difficult and, sometimes, impossible."  The lawsuit alleges that attorneys have had difficulty scheduling legal calls and having meetings with their clients in confidential settings.

Immigration activists dismayed at Biden move to expand Title 42 to Venezuelan illegal migrants.  Immigration activist groups are expressing their concern with the Biden administration's announcement that it will start expelling Venezuelans to Mexico using the Title 42 public health order — reducing entry pathways to a limited parole program.  The Department of Homeland Security announced Wednesday that it is launching a new large-scale border enforcement operation with Mexico that includes increased checkpoints, a surge in resources and a crackdown on human smuggling.  The administration also announced that all Venezuelans entering the U.S. illegally would now be returned to Mexico under the Title 42 public health order — which was implemented during the Trump administration due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  The order allows for the rapid expulsion of migrants and is one that the Biden administration has been seeking to end, but has been stopped by a legal challenge.

Biden to Import 65K Foreign Workers for Blue-Collar Jobs as 11.6 Million Americans Are Jobless.  President Joe Biden is set to import nearly 65,000 H-2B foreign visa workers to take blue-collar American jobs as roughly 11.6 million Americans remain jobless.  This week, Biden's Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Labor Department announced that the administration would be allowing businesses to import a few less than 65,000 H-2B foreign visa workers to take nonagricultural jobs in construction, meatpacking, and landscaping, among other industries.

As migrant surge sweeps NYC, here's where they're being housed.  Queens is taking the largest share of migrants into emergency shelters set up by the city — fueling what the borough's president on Thursday called a "powder keg" of crises and creating a "recipe for a social and economic disaster."  Queens was housing 4,782 migrants, or 32% of the total 14,777 placed in emergency shelters as of Wednesday, according to data compiled by the Department of Homeless Services and obtained by The Post on Thursday.  That share is more than one-sixth greater than the 27.3% that Queens residents contribute to the city's total population, according to 2020 census data.  "It's a powder keg in Queens at this point," said Queens Borough President Donovan Richards.

Calls to Impeach Secretary Mayorkas Pile Up.  As Julio covered on Wednesday, email documents revealed by Fox News's Bill Melugin show that Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas knew that the slandered Border Patrol agents did not actually whip illegal immigrants.  Mayorkas still failed to defend them, though.  Calls to impeach the secretary, with impeachment articles having been first filed by Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) in August of last year, have ramped up.  Biggs continued his calls over Twitter on Wednesday.  [Tweets]  Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) has also called for impeaching Mayorkas and circulated a letter and memo in March that made a formal request for fellow Republicans to join him.

A Venezuelan Man of Mystery Helps Tell Story of America's Open Border.  Meet Luis Antunez, your new neighbor from (probably) Venezuela.  He's a 40-year-old trader from Tucupita.  Or a policeman from Puerto Carreno, or a criminal from Caracas.  We may never know for sure.  I found Antunez's ID card the week before last on the banks of the Rio Grande here in Eagle Pass while visiting border communities with Daily Signal reporter Virginia Allen and our guide, Frank Lopez Jr.  Antunez apparently chucked the identification after wading across the river into the U.S. as one of over 200,000 illegal immigrants who entered our country in September.

Adams using luxe $400-a-night Times Square hotel rooms as migrant shelter.  A swank midtown Manhattan hotel will be home to hundreds of migrant families, Mayor Eric Adams said Wednesday, announcing that the Row NYC is being turned into the latest "humanitarian relief center" to grapple with an influx of asylum seekers in the city.  The four-star Row NYC hotel — located in pricey Times Square and formerly the iconic Milford Plaza — will initially house 200 migrant families and will have the ability to take on even more in the coming weeks, Adams said.  The $400-a-night hotel — once billed as being "in the center of it all" — has more than 1,000 rooms and is located in the same district as PS 33, the public school in Chelsea that parents told The [New York] Post is already overburdened by the sudden influx of migrant students who can't speak English.  The city's latest bid to cope with the spiraling crisis that has seen 18,600 migrants flood the city since May, means the school, which currently has just one certified bilingual teacher, could potentially end up with even more asylum-seeking kids as the hotel fills up.

Treasury Department to Audit DeSantis Migrant-Flight Expenditures.  The Treasury Department is auditing the migrant flights authorized by Governor Ron DeSantis to assess whether the expenditures were appropriate.  In response to a petition from Democratic lawmakers, the department's inspector general wrote in an October 7 letter that the agency would investigate whether Florida misused federal funds to relocate illegal immigrants to Martha's Vineyard.  The DeSantis administration has maintained that the trips were approved on a bipartisan basis by the state legislature in a budget package many months ago.  Richard K. Delmar, deputy inspector general for the department, told Senator Ed Markey and five other Democrats that he intended "to get this work underway as soon as possible" to see whether Republican-controlled states, such as Florida, exploited money they received under American Rescue Plan to ship out migrants.

In the State of Florida, who decides if "expenditures [are] appropriate?"  The Governor, of course.

Liberal Enclaves Panic Over Possibility of Migrants Arriving on their Doorstep.  More liberal enclaves are seemingly panicking over the possibility busloads and flights filled with border crossers and illegal aliens will be sent their way.  For months, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) and Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R) have been busing thousands of border crossers and illegal aliens to sanctuary cities like New York City, New York; Washington, D.C.; and Chicago, Illinois.  Likewise, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) flew about 50 illegal aliens to Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts, where former President Obama owns a 29-acre summer estate and which voted more than 80 percent for President Joe Biden.  The new arrivals were bused off the elite coastal island within 48 hours and sent to Joint Base Cape Cod after officials declared a "humanitarian crisis."  Some of the illegal aliens, backed by a George Soros-funded group, are now suing DeSantis.

NYC schools struggle to cope with influx of 5,500 migrant kids.  A Manhattan public school with just one certified bilingual teacher is reeling under the weight of a sudden influx of migrant students who don't speak any English, The Post has learned.  "We're overwhelmed," one frustrated teacher at PS 33 Chelsea Prep said Tuesday. "We've all got migrant students in our classrooms.  The teachers don't speak Spanish.  There's no resources helping us out right now — it's a very challenging situation."  One outraged mom said migrant kids — easily identified by lime green ID tags that hang from their necks — have swelled the size of her daughter's class from 15 to 20 kids.

Biden Admin Quietly Begins To Treat [the] Border Crisis Like [an] Invasion.  The Washington Examiner, citing reports from the Center Square, has a piece up today detailing that 20 states — including some very blue states like Oregon — have deployed military troops to the Southern border since Joe Biden took office. [...] Despite the progressive-friendly media's attempts to cancel use of the word "invasion" when covering the border crisis, the policy response from DoD looks an awful lot like they think it might be time to treat "the surge" (one of the preferred media euphemisms) as one.  This is especially true when considering the use of air cover from reliably blue states.

Blue Oregon among 20 states deploying military to southern border amid crisis.  More than 20 states have begun deploying military troops to the U.S.-Mexico border to assist federal agents responding to the border crisis since President Joe Biden took office.  National Guard soldiers will be deployed on 400-day deployments, bringing them back home before Thanksgiving 2023.  The deployments were at the request of the federal government, though the Biden administration has made no public announcement about soliciting military help from states.  The Defense Department requested 2,500 National Guard members from states earlier this summer to help federal law enforcement with detecting human and drug smuggling operations.  Both Democratic- and Republican-governed states have signed on to the border security mission.

Migrants bused to NYC hotel going door-to-door asking for help.  Migrants bused from the border to New York City have been walking around a Staten Island neighborhood knocking on doors and asking for food, clothes and work after they were put up in hotels there.  The migrants — many of whom were not ready for the colder temperatures of the Big Apple — are staying at a property in Travis-Chelsea that includes the Staten Island Inn, Holiday Inn, and Fairfield Inn and Suites Marriott, sources and workers told The Post over the weekend.  The Staten Island Inn is already completely booked with the illegal immigrants-turned-asylum-seekers, and more buses are expected in the next day or so, a Holiday Inn employee said.

New York City Wants $1 Billion to Help Exploit Biden's Migrants.  New York City's Mayor Eric Adams wants $1 billion from other Americans to subsidize the city's economic strategy of importing penniless immigrants for use by New York's business leaders. [...] The demand was $500 million two weeks ago, as officials counted the cost of housing migrants who are being drawn to the free overnight shelters attracted to the jobs and schooling in the so-called "sanctuary city."

WashPost Op-Ed Says Migrants Should Replace Americans.  Migrants should be imported to fill millions of empty jobs, even though about seven million working-age American men have dropped out of the workforce, says a right-of-center columnist at the Washington Post.  "We need immigrants to help fill these jobs," Marc Thiessen wrote on December 4, after dismissing the millions of American men who have been sidelined during the last 20 years.  Thiessen's discard Americans proposal is "morally abhorrent" but is also commonplace among the GOP establishment, responded Mark Krikorian, the director of the Center for Immigration Studies.

Eric Adams blasts illegal migrant influx into New York City as 'not sustainable'.  While attention is focused on inflation and whether Vladimir Putin would use nuclear weapons on us, the ongoing crisis of open borders continues, with Joe Biden & Co. leaving the gate open.  According to New York's mayor, Eric Adams, the situation is not an outrage or violation of U.S. principles of rule of law, but, to use a favorite leftist phrase, "not sustainable." [...] We've already heard about him carping about migrants entering his city, whether bussed in by border-state governors and mayors, by Joe Biden with his secret flights into various places at nighttime, or on their own.  Somehow, it's only a problem when the migrants hit his city, never mind what the border states are experiencing.  New York City has taken in, at last count, a few thousant extra unvetted illegal immigrants, nothing like the million-plus illegal migrants that border states have been forced to "welcome" whether they wanted to, or not.

NYC Mayor Adams declares state of emergency after 17,000 migrants spark shelter 'crisis'.  New York City Mayor Eric Adams declared a state of emergency Friday in response to the continued arrival of illegal migrants from southern states.  More than 17,000 migrants have been bused to the city since the spring, a small fraction of the migrant encounters at the border over that timeframe.  Fox News cameras at the Port Authority transportation terminal filmed eight buses arriving Friday, after nine arrived Thursday.  Adams said that one in five people in the city's shelter system is a migrant, which is creating the "crisis."

Biden Admin Issues Over 300,000 Smartphones With Tracking Devices To Illegal Immigrants.  More than 300,000 smartphones used to monitor illegal immigrants were given to noncitizens by the Biden administration last month, according to data collected by Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse.  Issuing such cellular devices to illegal immigrants is part of an Immigration and Customs Enforcement program called the Alternatives to Detention, which essentially gives the individuals access to U.S. soil before their court dates.  The smartphones, which cost taxpayers $361,218.08 per day, use facial recognition, GPS monitoring, and voice identification, according to ICE.  Jon Feere, former DHS senior adviser and director of investigations at the Center for Immigration Studies, told the Free Beacon last month that the ATD program has already proven to be a "costly failure," noting that thousands of illegal immigrants have disappeared annually.

For All Intents and Purposes, America Now Has No Southern Border.  [Scroll down] This scenario is played out over and over in towns along the southern border, as I learned during my recent trip to Del Rio, Eagle Pass, Kinney County, and San Antonio, Texas.  Migrants seeking asylum cross the border, the Border Patrol picks them up.  Agents take the migrants to a processing center where some basic information is taken down.  Then they are put on a bus or an airplane to a city somewhere else in America.  Illegal aliens are told to report to a local field office of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, within 60 days.  Some report back, but many do not for fear of deportation.  After spending three days on the southern border talking with local leaders, citizens, and illegal aliens themselves, I was surprised by how much of a well-oiled machine illegal immigration has become.

Two dozen states [are] sending National Guard troops to U.S.-Mexico border.  "The border is secure" says Vice President Kamala Harris; yet almost two dozen states are sending up to 2,500 National Guard troops to the U.S.-Mexico border.  The assistance is aimed at helping federal immigration officials handle the border crisis.  "Groups that support tougher immigration restrictions say the deployment of the National Guard troops will help overburdened federal agencies deal with the surge of illegal immigration", reports the Center Square.  The deployments were requested by the U.S. Department of Defense and Republican-led states like Kentucky, South Carolina and Arkansas, as well as Democratic-led states such as Rhode Island and Illinois will all be sending assistance.  Other states sending troops include Arizona, Georgia, Indiana, Minnesota, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico, DOD officials said.

Washington, DC, Democrats Approve Plan Allowing Illegal Aliens to Vote.  Democrats on the Washington, DC, City Council have approved a plan that would allow foreign nationals, including illegal aliens, to vote in local elections.  On Tuesday, the D.C. City Council voted 12-1 to advance a bill that will allow foreign nationals, regardless of if they have visas or are illegally in the United States, to vote in local elections such as school board races and mayoral elections.

Inside a Texas County That Declared Border Crisis an 'Invasion'.  It was 5:15 p.m. on a Monday afternoon and the 13th hour of Sheriff Brad Coe's workday.  "Phone call came at 4 a.m. this morning," said Coe, the sheriff of Kinney County, which borders Mexico.  A human smuggler had been caught trying to sneak illegal immigrants across the border into the U.S. The sheriff counted aloud, recalling the five suspected human smugglers who were caught before 8 a.m. that day, Sept. 26.  Between January and June of this year, officials caught a total of 292 suspected human smugglers in Kinney County, which has a population of about 3,600.  Last year, law enforcement in Kinney County caught 169 smuggling suspects.  In the first six months of 2022, "we have arrested 1,659 illegal aliens," said Coe, a Republican who took office in 2017.

Migrants: A Billion More Are Waiting in the Wings.  According to the National Center for Health, the US currently has a population of about 335 million, with a birth rate that has been consistently below replacement level since 2007.  Do the demographic data indicate that, by 2050, the US will have more than one billion new residents, with a ratio of one English-speaking American citizen to three or four new non-English-speaking asylum-seekers?  If so, to whose advantage is such a dramatic and disturbing change?  The pro-abortion movement apparently believes the world is now over-populated.  Why, then, are they working hard to encourage floods of mostly unskilled migrants to America and Europe?  The US has already reached the goal of population stability.  Some European countries now have birth rates that are far below replacement level.  What is to be gained by jacking up the population numbers in countries where New World Order demographics are already the order of the day?

Democrats: Importing racism, sexism, and terrorism.  Since Biden came into office, there have been 4.5 million encounters at the southern border.  The number of crossers remaining in the United States legally and illegally is a well-guarded secret.  Perhaps it's because Mayorkas and Biden are leveraging the use of temporary parole, refugee, and temporary protection (TPS) statuses to import "legally" an unlimited number of immigrants with minimal qualifications and background checks.  People from 13 countries can come to the border and qualify for TPS.  This includes people from El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Haiti, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Venezuela, and Yemen.  Many TPS immigrants have lived here for over 10 years.  In 2021, more "temporary" immigrants became citizens than new arrivals.  Unaccompanied minors (under 21) are immediately designated as refugees, but not counted as refugees.  Under Biden, over 260,000 unaccompanied minors have been processed, of which 82% were from Central America.  (Between 2014 and 2017, the total was 3,092.)  A 2015 study showed that 12% of minors were sponsored by criminals, including human traffickers.  In 2021, 66% of the unaccompanied minors were males, and 72% were 15-17 years old.  It's unknown how many will join gangs or work for cartels because post-release follow-up is optional.

El Paso's 'hypocritical' Democrats are working with the White House to quietly bus thousands of migrants north using federal money.  The Democrat-led border city of El Paso, Texas, has been quietly working with the Biden administration to spend millions of dollars of federal money busing thousands of migrants to northern sanctuary cities, including New York and Chicago, can reveal.  While the Republican governors of Texas and Arizona — Greg Abbott and Doug Ducey — have made headlines sending migrants to liberal northern cities to spotlight the crisis on the southern frontier, El Paso is doing much the same, just without the fanfare.  For some, El Paso's migrant-busing policy showcases how Democrat-led administrations are downplaying the crisis on America's border, speedily processing thousands of arrivals each day at a warehouse in the desert and packing them on to buses north.

Record 2.2 Million Migrants Apprehended by Border Patrol in FY22, 604K Got Away.  Border Patrol agents apprehended a record-setting 2.2 million migrants who illegally crossed the southwest border with Mexico, according to a source within U.S. Customs and Border Protection.  In addition, the unofficial year-end numbers show an estimate of nearly 604,000 migrant got-aways.  As the record-setting Fiscal Year 2022 came to a close at midnight, a source within U.S. Customs and Border Protection told Breitbart Texas that agents working the nine southwest border sectors apprehended more than 2.2 million migrants.  This represents an increase of nearly 27 percent over last year's record of 1.7 million migrant apprehensions.

This Is Not about the Migrants.  Let no one be under any illusions.  This is not about the 50 migrants Governor DeSantis flew to Martha's Vineyard.  They could care less about helping the migrants than citizens of the Vineyard did.  This is about Democrats pulling out all the stops to hamstring Governor DeSantis, who they tacitly know could well be the Republican (and very popular) presidential nominee for 2024.  It is he whom Democrats seek to attack and, most of all, must work to diminish.

This will make it easier to ship them all to Florida en masse.
Mayor Adams close to deal for Norwegian Cruise ship to house migrants in NYC waters.  Mayor Eric Adams is finalizing a deal with the Norwegian Cruise Line to house migrants on one of its massive cruise ships and dock it at Staten Island's Homeport, The [New York] Post has learned.  Adams wants to lease the luxury liner for at least six months and use it to house and process migrants before they enter the city's shelter system, a source familiar with the matter said.  The migrants would be allowed to come and go while staying on the ship, the source said.  Preliminary estimates show the plan will be "cheaper" than erecting another tent city similar to the one the city plans to open in the Bronx at the Orchard Beach parking lot, the source said.  The tent city, now under construction, is expected to cost $15 million a month to operate, The Post exclusively reported last week.

Here are just a few of the terrible, radical, tyrannical policies Swamp Dems are trying to fund with your money.  [Thread reader] Dems' continuing resolution contains NOTHING to secure our border from cartels, illegal migrants, and lethal fentanyl flooding in - and would EMPOWER the Biden admin to make the border crisis WORSE:  $57.5 billion for [DHS] that, under the leadership of [Sec.  Mayorkas], has:
  •   Given violent cartels operational control of our border
  •   Allowed fentanyl to pour into communities
  •   Undermined our national sovereignty
  •   Attacked their own employees for doing their jobs
$8.2 billion for [ICE], which:
  •   Reported a 70% REDUCTION in removals last year
  •   REFUSES to remove the illegally present individuals the administration does not deem a "threat"
  •   Abuses parole authority to release illegal migrants
  •   $4.8 billion to @HHSGov's Office of Refugee Resettlement that has LOST migrant children after releasing them to sponsors, including DOZENS in the Houston, Texas area alone
  •   Millions in grants EACH YEAR to hundreds of NGOs that provide "how-to" guidance on reaching our southern border and effectively SUBSIDIZE illegal migration

Opposing open borders isn't racist.  With the midterms on the horizon and President Joe Biden's dismal approval numbers causing alarm within the Democratic Party, former President Barack Obama is playing the race card trying to shift the narrative from Biden's failed leadership to falsely insinuating that Republicans are "racists" for opposing mass illegal immigration.  On Sunday at the L'Attitude conference, an event for Latino business professionals in San Diego, Obama said, "Right now, the biggest fuel behind the Republican agenda is related to immigration and the fear that somehow America's character is going to be changed if, people of darker shades, there are too many of them here," according to The San Diego Union-Tribune.  Huh?  Has Obama forgotten that when he and his former Vice President Joe Biden occupied the White House, their administration deported millions of illegal immigrants, earning him the moniker "deporter-in-chief"?

Report: Soros-Linked Group Wins $41M Contract from Biden to Help Illegal Aliens Evade Deportation.  A non-governmental organization (NGO), with financial links to billionaire George Soros, has won a $41 million federal contract from President Joe Biden's Department of Justice (DOJ) to help illegal aliens evade deportation from the United States.  The Acacia Center for Justice, an NGO with financial ties to the Soros-linked Vera Institute of Justice, scored a contract from Biden's DOJ to provide "legal services" to border crossers and illegal aliens after they are released into the U.S. interior in the hopes of staying permanently.

CBP Document Details Mass Release of Illegal Aliens under Biden.  While you must dig to find it, CBP discloses the number of illegal migrants it has apprehended and released at the Southwest border in FY 2022 on a webpage captioned "Custody and Transfer Statistics".  Well, partially discloses, at least, because while that page reveals that more than 553,000 aliens apprehended by Border Patrol agents have been released this fiscal year, it doesn't include port encounters or unaccompanied alien children.  That page also indicates that hundreds of thousands of other illegal migrants were transferred to ICE for detention — and that agency doesn't hold most such "immigration violators" for long.  All told, about 2.2 million aliens have exploited Biden's border policies — thus far.  Under the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), DHS is required to detain every illegal entrant, as well as all other inadmissible aliens stopped at entry and deemed inadmissible.

$20 billion payday: Biden's border surge sends smuggling prices soaring.  The migrant smuggling economy at the U.S.-Mexico border now tops $20 billion and the cartels have made at least $2.6 billion in profit over the past 12 months just from controlling the routes illegal immigrants use, according to a Washington Times analysis.  Both amounts are up substantially from the Trump and Obama years because more people are coming to the border and because they are paying higher prices.  Mexican migrants are paying an average of $8,600 in total smuggling fees this year, according to The Washington Times' database of smuggling cases.  That's up roughly $2,000 from 2019, the last pre-pandemic year under the Trump administration.  Migrants from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala are paying about $11,500 for the trip, up from $9,000 in 2020 and $7,900 in 2019, The Times' data shows.

NBC's Chuck Todd Laughably Insists More Illegal Aliens Will Solve Inflation.  [Scroll down] Abbott and DeSantis have two primary goals, both of which have worked, masterfully.  First, to demonstrate to Democrat city leaders the serious problem created as the influx of illegals continues to decimate border towns.  Second, and most brilliantly, to illustrate the left's complete hypocrisy when illegals show up on their doorstep.  Such was the case when residents of the upscale liberal enclave of Martha's Vineyard became apoplectic when just 50 illegals showed up on their island, prompting them to ship out the illegals within less than 48 hours.  Sorry, Chuck — try harder, next time.

Biden Makes Securing U.S. Jobs Easier for Border Crossers, Illegal Aliens.  President Joe Biden's administration is making it easier for border crossers and illegal aliens to secure American jobs after they are released into the United States interior.  In 2019, former President Trump directed the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to stop fast-tracking work permits for border crossers and illegal aliens who are subsequently released into American communities.  The rule change made sure that border crossers and illegal aliens would need to be in the U.S. for at least a year before applying for work permits through the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) agency.  Now, as Reuters reports, Biden is repealing the Trump-era rule change to ensure that hundreds of thousands of border crossers and illegal aliens his DHS releases every few months into the U.S. interior can now more quickly secure work permits to take American jobs.

Majority of Americans Want Abbott to Continue Busing Illegals to Dem-Run Cities.  As the Biden administration continues to ignore their responsibilities of keeping the southern border secure, Republican governors are taking the issue into their own hands and sending the illegal migrants elsewhere so the Democrats will be forced get a grip on the crisis.  The Texas Politics Project at the University of Texas found that 52% of Texas voters want Gov. Greg Abbott (D-TX) to continue to bus migrants out of their state.  Abbott said that he decided to ship illegal migrants to cities such as New York City and Washington D.C. because of "President Biden's continued refusal to acknowledge the crisis caused by his open border policies."

The Border Crisis Is Just The Tip Of The Iceberg.  In Mexico, A Cartel Crisis Looms.  This week, U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced that apprehensions of illegal immigrants surpassed 2.1 million for the fiscal year in August, with more than 203,000 apprehensions last month alone, marking six straight months of southwest border arrests exceeding 200,000.  Nothing like this has ever happened before.  The 2.1 million figure represents an all-time high, surpassing the previous record of 1.7 million, set in fiscal year 2021.  That is to say, every year President Joe Biden has been in office has been a record-breaking year of illegal immigration.  Biden's policies are directly responsible for the ongoing border crisis, which will continue unabated until those policies change.  Whatever the number ends up being for 2022, the number for 2023 will almost certainly be higher.

Adams asks feds for $500M over border crisis — in NYC — but won't tell Biden to end surge.  Mayor Eric Adams is desperately seeking at least $500 million in federal funding to deal with the flood of migrants into the Big Apple — leading bipartisan critics to question why he just doesn't demand that President Biden stop the flow from Mexico.  City Hall privately asked the White House for the emergency cash midway through the summer, saying it would cover just one year's worth of spending on the migrants who Adams has said are straining the city's shelter system to its "breaking point," The [New York] Post has learned.  More than 13,600 asylum-seeking migrants have arrived in New York City since the spring, according to the city's latest official estimate.  Discussions over the request — which followed an initial, public appeal by Adams in July — have continued since then but the Biden administration hasn't given city officials a firm answer, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter.

Democrat Gov. J.B. Pritzker Activates National Guard Over 0.01% of Biden's Border Crisis Arriving in Illinois.  Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker (D) is activating the National Guard over 0.01 percent of President Joe Biden's record-breaking illegal immigration crisis arriving in the sanctuary state via migrant buses sent by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R).  For more than two weeks, Abbott has sent about 500 border crossers and illegal aliens to Chicago, Illinois, which prides itself on being a sanctuary jurisdiction for illegal aliens.  The 500 arrivals account for just 0.01 percent of the estimated five million border crossers and illegal aliens who have crossed the southern border since Biden took office.

Nonprofits Violate IRS Rules to Wage a Legal War for Illegal Aliens.  Three of the migrants who were flown in by Gov. DeSantis to Martha's Vineyard filed a lawsuit against the Florida governor claiming that they were somehow lured to the sanctuary island.  The lawsuit is completely baseless since the "false promises and false representations" that the migrants would get "employment, housing, educational opportunities" were actually copied by Florida from a brochure put out by the Massachusetts Office for Refugees and Immigrants.  It's Massachusetts and the elites of Martha's Vineyard who refused to honor their promises.  The lawyers representing the migrants, Yanet Doe, Pablo Doe, and Jesus Doe, are from the Boston chapter of Lawyers for Civil Rights.  The national organization was created at the behest of JFK and RFK and funded by the Ford Foundation making it an obviously partisan group.  Despite its partisan agenda, it functions as a 501(c)(3).  As do many other leftist lawfare groups.

Martha's Vineyard Residents Wallow in Their Disgusting Hypocrisy.  The demonstration was just one of many hard knocks Vineyard residents have endured since 48 mostly Venezuelan migrants were removed from the "sanctuary" island by the National Guard last Friday.  After receiving basic support, but no invitations to stay on an island where 63 percent of homes are vacant in the offseason, the migrants now reside at Joint Base Cape Cod (JBCC), a military installation in mainland Massachusetts.  Critics have been relentless in calling out Vineyard hypocrisy.  As a "sanctuary" jurisdiction in a self-proclaimed "sanctuary" state, Martha's Vineyard joined other such places, which promise never to inform on migrants to immigration authorities.  Yet it did precisely that the second even a small number of them appeared in their midst.  The Vineyard community allowed the migrants to sleep in a church hall and gave them basic meals before the military took them away in the presence of cheering crowds of well-off locals who sincerely believe they did a good and honorable deed.  From the moment their "humanitarian crisis" began, Vineyard residents congratulated themselves and lectured an incredulous world on their monumental virtue and inexhaustible compassion.

Soros-Funded Group Behind Lawsuit Targeting DeSantis for Flying Illegal Aliens to Martha's Vineyard.  A left-wing non-governmental organization (NGO) partially funded by billionaire George Soros is behind a lawsuit targeting Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) for flying illegal aliens to the elite coastal island of Martha's Vineyard.  Late last week, DeSantis sent two flights packed with 50 illegal aliens from Venezuela to Martha's Vineyard, where former President Obama has a sprawling 29-acre summer estate.  Despite having the capacity to house six million new arrivals, the illegal aliens were bused off Martha's Vineyard less than 48 hours later to Joint Base Cape Cod.  A handful of illegal aliens flown to Martha's Vineyard have since filed a class action lawsuit against DeSantis, alleging their Fourth and Fourteenth Amendment rights were violated.

Did the authors of the Constitution as written and as amended intend to have constitutional rights extend to illegal aliens?  The border jumpers are present in this country illegally and are presumably subject to deportation at any time.  The courts frequently tell U.S. citizens that they don't have "standing" to sue, so why are illegal aliens in a better position?

Illegal Aliens, Deported from Martha's Vineyard, Want to Return to 'Beautiful' Island.  Illegal aliens who were deported off Martha's Vineyard less than 48 hours after their arrival now say they would like to return to the "beautiful" elite island home of the wealthy's summer estates.  Late last week, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) sent two flights packed with 50 illegal aliens from Venezuela to Martha's Vineyard, where former President Obama has a sprawling 29-acre summer estate.

Martha's Meltdown Model.  Martha's Vineyard has been all over the news.  The tony resort community so loves aiding and comforting the undocumented immigrants who were flown in from Florida that it hugged them — for all of 48 hours.  Oddly, the Left became unhinged when red-state governors — whose states the last two years were flooded with some 3 million people who entered the country illegally — finally decided to spread welcoming chores among affluent blue-state communities.  It was a natural fit.  Most, like Washington, D.C., and New York, were on record as sanctuary city jurisdictions.  In the abstract, they endorse open borders and celebrate diversity — from the serenity of thousands of miles away.  The uproar at Martha's Vineyard prompted the Democratic hierarchy to do some explaining.  Why had it not earlier objected to the federal government night flights of tens of thousands of border-crossers to red-state communities that had opposed illegal immigration?

Bad news for Dems: The border crisis is the new Roe in Google searches.  My, how quickly the plot changes with just a single flight to Martha's Vineyard!  To be fair, the media's interest in the border crisis began spiking upward before then, but not much before Ron DeSantis sent 50 illegal immigrants to the wealthy Massachusetts enclave.  When buses began arriving in "sanctuary cities" like New York City and Washington DC, thanks to the efforts of DeSantis, Greg Abbott, and Doug Ducey, the media went into full freak-out mode.  They excoriated these Republican governors endlessly, and still do.  And you can guess what that did for public interest in the border crisis.  Axios reports this morning that it has now eclipsed interest in abortion, a topic that mainstream media spent the summer flogging for the midterms, as well as the Mar-a-Lago kerfuffle.

Biden Says Deporting Illegal Immigrants to Venezuela, Cuba, Nicaragua Is 'Not Rational'.  President Joe Biden said Tuesday that it's "not rational" to send illegal immigrants at the southern border who fled Venezuela, Cuba, and Nicaragua, back to their own nations.  "There are three countries," Biden said during a Tuesday briefing, upon being pressed about why the U.S.-Mexico border is "more overwhelmed on [his] watch."  "There are fewer and fewer immigrants coming from Central America than from Mexico.  It's a totally different circumstance," he said, referring to the administration of his predecessor, former President Donald Trump.  "What's on my watch now is Venezuela, Cuba, and Nicaragua, and the ability to send them back to those states is not rational," the president continued, adding that he is "working with Mexico and other countries" to stop the flow from those nations.  U.S. Customs and Border Protection has documented over 2 million encounters at the southern border so far this fiscal year, compared to 1.7 million encounters in the whole fiscal year of 2021 and less than half a million the previous year.

Border communities seethe as Democrats seek money for Martha's Vineyard migrants.  Martha's Vineyard said it was stressed when about 50 migrants were flown to the exclusive island enclave this month.  In Brooks County, Texas, Sheriff Urbino "Benny" Martinez had to laugh.  His county has already seen that many migrants this year, just counting dead bodies.  Some 78 migrants, all victims of the treacherous journey, have been collected from ranchlands in the county.  That adds to the 119 bodies last year.  Each costs money to gather, handle and autopsy.  The sheriff said the county spends hundreds of thousands of dollars to do that work.  That's on top of the more standard costs of smuggling and crime.  Smugglers cut ranch fencing, which has to be repaired at $600 for every 100 feet.  The sheriff's department has counted 32 stolen vehicles and a handful of stolen firearms it says are part of the border chaos.  Even fuel costs add up as sheriff's deputies are called out for car chases with smugglers.  The brouhaha over busing migrants is vexing officials in small communities along the southern border.

The Moral Case for Ron DeSantis' 'Migrant Transports'.  Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida on Wednesday, September 14, facilitated two flights of approximately 50 Venezuelan migrants to Martha's Vineyard.  This is part of DeSantis' push to draw attention to the border policies of President Biden. [...] There is a moral upshot to his actions that few, in their sentimental reaction to the plight of displaced peoples, will bear witness to.  And it is this:  the plight in Venezuela is not accidental.  It was deliberate, planned and orchestrated by the people of Venezuela.  As several economists and political theorists including James Piereson have pointed out, for the majority of the twentieth century Venezuela was one of the most prosperous South American countries.  It had a very diversified economy replete with plenty oil reserves that permitted the country to acquire export surpluses.  As a result, people there enjoyed a higher standard of living.  However, the people of Venezuela elected an authoritarian socialist thug, Hugo Chavez, who ran on a socialist platform.

DeSantis Has Receipts That Pokes Major Holes In Migrant Class Action Lawsuit.  Florida Governor Ron DeSantis' office responded to the class action lawsuit filed on behalf of the migrants flown to Martha's Vineyard by immigration lawyers and activists by showing the migrants signed consent forms.  The lawsuit claims the flights were "a premeditated, fraudulent, and illegal scheme centered on exploiting [the migrants] for the sole purpose of advancing their own personal, financial and political interests."  "It is opportunistic that activists would use illegal immigrants for political theater.  If these activists spent even a fraction of this time and effort at the border, perhaps some accountability would be brought to the Biden Administration's reckless border policies that entice illegal immigrants to make dangerous and often lethal journeys through Central America and put their lives in the hands of cartels and Coyotes," said DeSantis' office on Tuesday [9/20/2022].

Joe Biden's Migrants Are Bursting New York.  The massive inflow of President Joe Biden's foreign migrants into New York City is causing a crisis in the city's chaotic and expensive housing market.  Welcoming Democrats are trying to fix their self-inflicted problem by deporting some of the migrants to lower-wage employers in peripheral cities, and by holding other migrants in unused cruise liners.  Local and migrants are also competing for housing spaces, including at one 1,000-bed shelter, the New York Post reported on September 19[.]

The Point Has Been Made.  Even before the newly-inaugurated Joe Biden began carrying through with his open borders promises in January 2021, a border crisis of staggering proportions was rapidly developing along the southern border of the United States expressly due to what Biden said throughout his campaign that he would do if elected.  "I would, in fact, make sure that there is — we immediately surge to the border.  All those people who are seeking asylum, they deserve to be heard," Biden infamously proclaimed during the third Democratic presidential primary debate in Sept. 2019.  "That's who we are.  We're a nation who says, if you want to flee, and you're freeing oppression, you should come."  Obviously, that's exactly what happened, so much so to the point that we've seen record numbers of illegal immigrants cross the border under Biden's watch since he shut down border construction and scrapped former President Donald Trump's Remain in Mexico policy, with the "gotaways" (those who slip beyond border enforcement authorities and make it into the country untouched) in 2022 alone numbering in the mid-hundreds of thousands so far.

Biden's Open-border Policies are Killing Americans.  Daily, the American public is confronted with images of illegal aliens invading our country.  The United States has been a stable republic because we have advocated and practiced being a nation of laws.  When governments become hostile to the rule of law, they undermine Americanism.  As states along the southern border struggle to handle this mass inflow of humanity, prompted by Democrat's abandonment of law, buses and planes are now transporting arriving aliens to lawless sanctuary cities around the country.  These anti-American cities include Chicago, New York, and even the nation's capital.  To anyone who has seen these images, it has become clear that the open-border policies of the Biden administration have led to a multi-pronged health, humanitarian, and national security disaster.  Less visible, but deadly, is the corresponding spike in China-sponsored fentanyl that has been smuggled across the border and is closely tied to the hordes of illegal aliens.

The moral necessity of DeSantis's immigrant flight.  It was necessary for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to fly illegal immigrants from San Antonio to Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts.  If you want to know why, look no further than President Joe Biden's interview on 60 Minutes on Sunday night.  Given at least 15 minutes to ask whatever questions it thought important, CBS News made no mention of border security.  Not a peep.  Zip.  Zilch.  Nada.  Yet illegal immigrants are crossing the southern border at a record pace.  The number has passed 2 million this fiscal year, but the Biden administration hasn't yet made that official by releasing the August data.  Why the delay?  You guess.  As a direct result of these record high illegal crossings, record numbers are also dying on the southern border — 750 so far this year, which is 200 more than last year and 500 more than in 2020.  These deaths are all due to the chaos caused by Biden's catch-and-release border policy.  CBS News either doesn't care about these dead immigrants or does not want to embarrass Biden by asking difficult questions that the public deserves to have answered.

Flashback: Gavin Newsom Shipped Homeless People Out of San Francisco With 'One-Way Tickets'.  Governor Gavin Newsom sent a letter to Merrick Garland on Thursday requesting the Attorney General look into "kidnapping" charges for those involved in Florida Governor Ron DeSantis' effort to send illegal immigrants to Martha's Vineyard.  But if shipping people out of state to try and give them a better life amounts to "kidnapping," Newsom has some explaining to do.  In July of 2019, SFist published an article critiquing a program called 'Homeward Bound,' an effort initiated by Newsom as mayor of San Francisco in 2004.  The program paid for bus tickets out of town, presumably with the destination being to friends and family willing to take the homeless individual in.  SFist, however, described it as a program with a nice name which masks the fact that it "gives unsheltered San Franciscans a one-way Greyhound bus ticket out of town and asks them to please never come back."

Illegal Alien Encounters Hit 2 Million in One Year for First Time as Biden Border Crisis Rages.  Let's be clear from the outset:  President Joe Biden is responsible — intentionally so — for the Southern Border crisis that he and he alone created, which continues to pose a direct threat to the American people.  Despite the preposterous lies from "Border Czar" Kamala Harris about a "secure" border, and White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre's ridiculous insistence that the border is "closed," hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens continue to stream into America, many of them apprehended, processed, and released into the country — while untold numbers are undetected.

Illegal migrant commits suicide in NYC shelter; Mayor Adams blames Governor Abbott.  New York City Mayor Eric Adams confirmed on Monday that a female illegal migrant committed suicide on Sunday in a city shelter.  He promptly placed the blame squarely on Governor Abbott.  He called it a man-made humanitarian crisis.  I'll agree with the mayor, it is a man-made humanitarian crisis.  However, the man who made it is Joe Biden, not Greg Abbott.  Mayor Adams can't rewrite history.  Joe Biden ran for president and promised to undo everything that the previous administration did to secure the border with Mexico.  He promised to freeze deportations of illegal immigrants already in the country.  And he pledged to work toward blanket amnesty for illegal aliens.  All of this was music to the ears of would-be migrants and they started coming to the border even before Joe Biden was sworn into office.  They are still coming.  In the first two years of the Biden administration, the U.S. in on track to apprehend about four million illegal migrants.  It is, in fact, an humanitarian crisis.  It's also a national security crisis and a crisis of our nation's sovereignty.

'Martha's Vineyard Invasion Song' exposing glaring liberal hypocrisy takes internet by storm.  A BlazeTV host has gone viral for writing and singing a song about the pompous, hoity-toity Martha's Vineyard liberal elites who last week threw a fit over 50 illegal aliens being flown to their luxurious little island.  Called "The Martha's Vineyard Invasion Song," the song by host Chad Prather and CJaye LeRose mocks the blatant, glaring hypocrisy of the nearly 100 percent white island and its bougie residents.  [Video clip]

Newsom slams 'morally reprehensible' migrant transports despite launching homeless bus program as SF mayor.  California Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom is accusing Republican Govs.  Ron DeSantis of Florida and Greg Abbott of Texas of possible kidnapping and has called their transporting of illegal immigrants to progressive states "morally reprehensible," despite launching a program as San Francisco mayor that bussed thousands of homeless people out of San Francisco and the state.  Fox News Digital first reported on Wednesday that DeSantis sent two planes full of illegal immigrants to Martha's Vineyard after promising he would relocate them to a "sanctuary destination."  Abbott similarly began sending thousands of illegals to Washington, D.C., in April and has since sent busloads to New York City and Chicago.  Newsom responded to DeSantis' latest action by sending a letter asking Attorney General Merrick Garland to investigate whether the governors sending migrants out of their states are breaking the law by kidnapping.

Martha's Vineyard Newspaper Lists 50 Job Ads Despite Claims of No Work on Island.  While some locals have claimed that the illegal immigrants who arrived on this wealthy island should go elsewhere since there wouldn't be work for them with the summer rush gone, the local newspaper has listed 50 help wanted ads in a recent issue, and the local supermarket chain has been known to need help all year long.  The classified section of the Vineyard Gazette listed more than 50 jobs in the same issue that ran a story about the illegal aliens, referring to them as "stranded migrants."  The job ads included positions for laborers, custodians, landscapers, bakers, cooks, dishwashers, technicians, library assistant, and several retail positions.  The local YMCA also listed several job openings, including housekeepers, ice arena workers, and a front desk administrator.  The spacious Y, located near where the illegal immigrants spent the night at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church, shares a complex with Martha's Vineyard Community Services (MVCS), which also ran a help wanted ad in the paper, including a job for administrative assistant, "bilingual preferred."

7 Fun Things Illegal Migrants Can Do in Martha's Vineyard This Month.  The arrival of 50 illegal migrants at Martha's Vineyard on Wednesday rocked the small island but inadvertently allowed the foreign visitors brief exposure to one of America's top travel destinations.  Martha's Vineyard's tightknit, affluent community, comprising mostly Democrats, including former President Barack Obama, had proudly taken in the migrants after they were flown in by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R). [...] The migrants' stay at the Vineyard was, however, short-lived as Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker (R) was quick to deport them from the island.  Baker announced he was sending them on Friday to a military base on Cape Cod because "the island communities are not equipped to provide sustainable accommodation" for the mostly Venezuelan nationals.

Broken border: Illegal immigration arrests under Biden exceed Obama's eight years.  An extraordinary number of immigrants are crossing into the United States from Mexico since early 2021, setting off a series of crises at the border as well as the interior of the country — the likes of which are unprecedented.  In the first year and a half of President Joe Biden 's tenure, Border Patrol agents nationwide have arrested more people who came cross the border unlawfully than in President Barack Obama's two terms — an indication of the magnitude of the situation.  Border Patrol's 20,000 federal agents nationwide made 3,484,327 apprehensions of immigrants who were unauthorized to enter the U.S. in less than two years of Biden's presidency, compared to 3,384,816 apprehensions during the eight fiscal years that coincided with Obama's two terms in office.  Some illegal immigrants tried more than once to cross, particularly during the pandemic, because agents immediately expelled many back to Mexico.

Martha's Vineyard Liberals Scream 'Not in my Backyard!'  Who knew that residents of woke and progressive Martha's Vineyard were racist, white supremacist, xenophobes?  Former President Barack Obama owns a $12 million estate on this racist island off the coast of Massachusetts.  Are the Obamas racists?  Other liberal celebrities either live or frequent Martha's Vineyard, including Oprah Winfrey, Larry David, Bill Murray, John Kerry, and the Clintons.  Perhaps they are all racists, too, as the island has become anti-immigration.  As NBC News confidently asserts, there is "racism behind anti-immigration rhetoric," rhetoric which we are now hearing from Martha's Vineyard.  Democrats and the left do not believe in a sovereign national border, instead encouraging illegal immigration and amnesty for those making their way from anywhere to the United States.  Democrats have voted to defend sanctuary cities and block mandatory jail time for repeat illegals.

Illegal Immigration is Reaching a Point of No Return.  In the face of epidemic fentanyl deaths, vaccine injuries reaching into the tens of thousands, inflation skyrocketing, violent crime off the charts, mobs threatening Supreme Court judges, and as more than two million illegals, and counting, stream across the border — liberals and leftists screamed the loudest, last week, about 50 migrants desecrating Martha's Vineyard.  Democrats haven't always been so reckless.  Not too long ago, illegal immigration was a no-brainer.  "Illegal immigration is wrong — plain and simple," Chuck Schumer said in 2009.  Hillary Clinton belched in 2003, "I am adamantly against illegal immigration." [...] Today, illegal immigration has not only become accepted, but institutionalized.  Seeing a rich, liberal enclave like Martha's Vineyard summon the National Guard and kick out 50 "migrants" in a little more than a day, was a marvel to behold.  And rare.

Biden Admin Awards $80 Million Contract That Prohibits GPS Monitoring Of Illegal Immigrants.  The Biden administration is spending nearly $80 million on a new system to monitor illegal immigrants that prohibits the use of any GPS technology, a decision that experts say will make it impossible to locate their whereabouts after their release into the United States.  The system, according to government records reviewed by the Washington Free Beacon, is meant to track illegal immigrants via monthly check-ins via phone.  Migrants released into the U.S. interior aged 18-19 are eligible for the program.  Any GPS monitoring that would give exact locations, such as ankle monitor tracking, is explicitly forbidden, according to the contract.

Democrat-led El Paso is moving illegal migrants to NYC by bus, after White House slammed GOP governors who did the same.  Despite the White House fury that GOP governors face for sending migrants to sanctuary cities, El Paso's Democrat-led city government has been doing the same for weeks — and is asking for the Biden administration to pay for it.  Led by Mayor Oscar Leeser, a Democrat, the Texas border city has dispatched at least 28 charter buses filled with migrants to New York City since August 23, at a cost of more than $600,000, KFOX-TV reported this week.  City officials say that they expect the buses to be paid for by Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), as part of a quarterly reimbursement process covering emergency food and shelter for migrants.

Obama [and other] Martha's Vineyard celebs [are] silent on opening up island homes to illegal immigrants.  Former President Barack Obama and several other high-profile Democrats who own homes on Martha's Vineyard have remained silent on whether they will open up their homes to provide comfort to any illegal immigrants sent to the island by Republican governors.  Representatives for the former president did not respond to multiple requests for comment from Fox News Digital on whether he has considered opening up his sprawling 29-acre estate on Martha's Vineyard to illegal immigrants who have been sent to the island or may be in the future.  In addition, Fox News Digital reached out to representatives for prominent public supporters of President Biden who own homes on Martha's Vineyard but did not receive a response.

Migrants are actually thanking Desantis for sending them to the vineyard.  Spin that, libs!  MSNBC found themselves guilty of accidental journalism Friday when their reporter on the scene at Martha's Vineyard revealed the distinct difference in sentiment between illegal immigrants getting transported around the country and the activists working to advance the progressive narrative.  [Video clip]  Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis' upped the ante in the effort to draw attention to the crisis at the southern border earlier this week when 50 illegal immigrants were flown to the self-proclaimed "sanctuary" island, Martha's Vineyard.  As evidenced by the swift removal of the illegals at the behest of locals calling the situation a "humanitarian crisis," the expensive vacation destination was only meant to be a sanctuary for the wealthy and the migrants who had been relocated were pleased to have been "brought to paradise."

By transporting migrants, GOP governors are exposing Democrats' hypocrisy.  Next time, Joe Biden should be more precise when he calls for national unity.  Because he and his fellow Democrats don't like the kind of unity they're getting from Republican governors.  The decision by GOP leaders in Texas, Florida and Arizona to "share" their abundance of foreign migrants with northern cities and states that boast of their sanctuary status is apparently not a gift the Dems appreciate.  In fact, the president and his party are so mad they're setting fire to the welcome wagons.  Shipping the migrants north is outrageous, a stunt, pure politics, they wail.  The White House is making noises about assigning its chief partisan enforcer, Attorney General Merrick Garland, to stop it.  That would be the height of irony because the same White House has for months secretly shipped tens of thousands of migrants around the country, often in the middle of the night with no notice to local officials.  No Dems complained then, so where did their love go?

7 More Buses Full of Illegal Aliens Heading to New York City Left El Paso Yesterday.  Keep 'em coming! Governors Abbott, Ducey and DeSantis need to keep busing and flying illegals to Democrat sanctuary cities.  So far illegals have been transported to Chicago, New York City, DC and Martha's Vineyard.  Texas Governor Abbott this week sent busloads of illegals to Kamala Harris' front yard in DC. [...] Texas has transported 2,365 illegals on 51 buses to New York City since August 23, Fox News reported.

Ted Cruz Suggests 3 Locations for Abbott and DeSantis to Deposit Illegal Aliens.  Cruz on Friday urged Abbott and DeSantis to bus illegals to three new liberal areas after the national news was dominated by Abbott's shipment of roughly 100 illegals to the grounds of the U.S. Naval Observatory in D.C. in front of the residence of Kamala Harris — who continues to insist the border is "secure" — and Desantis sent 50 illegals to the smug Democrat enclave of Martha's Vineyard, sending wealthy liberals into apoplectic fits of hysteria.  The unwanted migrants were promptly shipped off the island within 24 hours.  Anyway, as Cruz sees it, Nantucket, Massachusetts; Palo Alto, California; and Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, should be added to the travel docket.  [Tweets]

It Only Took 24 Hours For A Rich Liberal Enclave To Kick Out Their Illegal Migrants.  Just 24 hours after receiving about 50 migrants, the national guard was activated to ship the handful of migrants from Martha's Vineyard to another town.  The migrants arrived Wednesday after Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis flew them in on two planes, declaring Florida was not a sanctuary state.  The island called itself a "sanctuary destination" shortly after former President Donald Trump took office, according to PBS.  Certainly delivering migrants who are overwhelming border communities to an island that decisively voted for President Joe Biden in 2020 would be welcomed.  Wrong.

Migrants, We Hardly Knew Ye.  Well, that was quick.  A mere 50 illegal immigrants threw Martha's Vineyard into a tizzy, revealing the shallowness of liberals' humanitarianism.  At least one Vineyard resident called on the Obamas to open up their $12 million mansion to the illegals, and there were social media exchanges like this one:  [Tweet]  But mostly, liberals reacted with outrage.  Joe Biden denounced Ron DeSantis's shipping of illegals to Martha's Vineyard as "unAmerican" — Biden is quite the patriot lately — but why?  The Biden administration has been flying illegals to various locations around the country, usually in the dark of night, for the last year and a half.  Apparently what is "unAmerican" is sending illegal immigrants to the haunts of the rich rather than to hard-pressed working class communities.

Turns Out the Illegals Sent to Martha's Vineyard Weren't Deceived About Their Destination.  Remember when leftists, in their full-on meltdown over Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis transporting illegal aliens to Martha's Vineyard, shrieked about the notion that these individuals were not told where they were going?  Yeah, looks like that particular narrative wasn't exactly in line with reality. [...] The Daily Caller News Foundation reported that the illegals who were transported to the white progressive haven at Martha's Vineyard knew exactly where they were going.  In fact, they obtained the documents these individuals were given before making the trek to the island.

Liberal Narratives Implode With NYC's New Response to Illegal Aliens Bused from Texas.  This week seems to have been the week when the liberals just proved how empty all their claims about sanctuary cities really are, as they descended into "not in my backyard" hysterics about a few illegal aliens being sent to Kamala Harris in D.C. and about 50 being sent to the liberal enclave of Martha's Vineyard.  Turns out as we reported, the liberal enclave couldn't even deal with the situation for a couple of days before they packed the illegal aliens on buses, and shipped them away to Joint Base Cape Cod, to be looked after by the National Guard.  But the liberals' NIMBY response doesn't end there.  Turns out now that New York, which boasts about being a sanctuary city and has a law that they have to house everyone now says they aren't able to deal with it, after getting several thousand illegal aliens from Texas over the past few months.

Kamala Harris Refuses to Acknowledge the Illegal Migrants Who Arrived At Her D.C. Doorsteps.  Two buses full of illegal migrants arrived at Vice President Kamala Harris' D.C. doorsteps this week so that she would have no way of ignoring the border crisis her and the Biden administration have created.  However she still has managed to not acknowledge the ever-growing issue.  On Thursday, Harris refused to comment on the buses sent by Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) that arrived from Del Rio, Texas carrying over 100 illegal immigrants that were dropped off outside of her residence at the Naval Observatory in Washington, D.C.

Holding the open-borders Democrats accountable.  The U.S. is currently in the midst of a serious border crisis since Joe Biden took over.  More than 1.7 million migrant encounters occurred in FY 2021, and more than 2 million in FY 2022.  The actual number of individuals who managed to cross the border and are inside the U.S. has to be considerably higher.  So what usually occurs after these migrants are apprehended?  The Biden administration transports these migrants, including the underaged migrants, via night flights, from Texas to New York, late at night.  So what happens after they land?  The New York Post reported that the migrants are then bussed to various other states or cities such as New Jersey or Philadelphia.  It isn't beyond the realms of possibility that these migrants are dropped into swing states.  None of this is reported by the mainstream news media, obviously.

The geese of Martha's Vineyard have to live with their gander policies.  Is it "cruel" to send illegal immigrants to Martha's Vineyard, as Press Secretary Karine Jeanne-Pierre says?  Was it also cruel when the Biden administration sent illegals from the border to Red states?  What is the difference in the level of cruelty between liberals sending their illegals to red states and conservatives sending theirs to blue states and cities, or is it cruel only when conservatives do it?  Liberals are on board for virtue-signaling diversity (and the crime) that comes of illegal immigration so long as it is NIMBY.  Does cruelty accrue only when Democrats are hurt?

Martha's Vineyard Immigrants Have Been "Politely" Kicked Off The Island By The Inclusive-And-Tolerant Rich White Liberals.  The good-hearted liberals of Martha's Vineyard have experienced a tiny fraction of what's been going on at the border for years and they've already had enough.  Migrants who landed on the island about 48 hours ago, are reportedly being moved to Joint Base Cape Cod, a military base on the mainland.

NYTimes: DHS Mayorkas Demands Control over Migrant Transports.  The nation's pro-migration border chief wants a bigger fleet of buses and aircraft to quietly control the delivery of many economic migrants to their preferred cities, according to the New York Times.  The demand comes from Cuban-born Alejandra Mayorkas, the pro-migration zealot who runs the Department of Homeland Security for President Joe Biden.  His plan was revealed amid the establishment media's uproar over two GOP governors' public transport of illegal migrants to the Vice President's House in Washington, DC, and to the elite island resort of Martha's Vinyard, off Massachusetts.  Mayorkas' busing plan would block those dramatic GOP drop-offs by corraling the migrants under federal supervision until they are delivered to their preferred cities by agency-controlled buses and aircraft.

That Was Quick: Buses Arrive at Martha's Vineyard and Deport Illegals Off the Island.  On Wednesday, Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis sent two planes carrying illegal immigrants to the island of Martha's Vineyard, an exclusive elite liberal community that prides itself on its tolerance and sanctuary status.  Rather than fly the illegals in the dead of night hidden from public view like Joe Biden, Governor DeSantis flew the migrants to the leftist enclave in broad daylight.  Democrats were furious that Governor DeSantis would pull off such a "stunt"! How dare he expose the liberal left for their disgusting hypocrisy!  Joe Biden immediately opened the borders after moving into the White House.  Over 2 million illegals have walked into the US this fiscal year.  Democrats expect the rest of the country to deal with the invasion that they caused!

Martha's Vineyard's 'humanitarian crisis' statement ridiculed on social media.  Martha's Vineyard was slammed on Twitter for declaring a "humanitarian crisis" based on the illegal immigrants sent to them by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, R., on Thursday.  DeSantis' office revealed to Fox News Digital on Wednesday that the governor was responsible for sending two planes of illegal immigrants to Martha's Vineyard in response to the Biden administration's failure to secure the southern border.  Massachusetts Democrats, including representatives from Martha's Vineyard, condemned the governor for using illegal immigrants as "political pawns," suggesting that the city is struggling to take care for migrants.

Spanish TV Reporter Says Martha's Vineyard Residents Privately Admitted They 'Don't Want Migrants Here'.  A Spanish TV reporter for Telemundo said Martha's Vineyard residents privately admitted to not wanting migrants on the island.  Speaking outside St.  Andrew's church where the 50 migrants that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) shipped up to the elite liberal vacation spot, Cristina Londoño Rooney of Telemundo said that residents refused to be interviewed on camera about their displeasure with the situation for fear of appearing "inhumane."  "A furious man passed by just a short time ago.  He said that his children had to leave this island because there are no jobs or housing, and now they bring these migrants over, deceiving them with those promises," she said.

Night vision footage shows more than 500 people marching into Texas over one night — while Martha's Vineyard melted down over just 50 migrants.  Shocking night vision footage shows the moment more than 500 migrants sneaked across the southern border into Texas — despite Kamala Harris claiming it was 'secure'.  The jaw-dropping thermal imaging video showed sprawling lines of people queuing in Mexico before slowly making their way into Eagle Pass overnight.  The three huge groups were spotted marching over rough terrain while being herded by what appeared to be a lesser number of guides.

Florida Democrats Outraged by Migrants Sent to Martha's Vineyard Voted for the Budget to Make It Happen.  Several Florida Democrats who are publicly expressing shock and outrage over Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) sending undocumented migrants to Martha's Vineyard actually voted in favor of the state budget, which appropriates $12 million for a program to do just that.  The governor signed the $109.9 billion "Freedom First" budget in June, which invests in education, law enforcement, and provides tax holidays, among other things.  A document highlighting some of the biggest initiatives in the budget explicitly states that the budget "creates a $12 million program within the Florida Department of Transportation to facilitate the transport of unauthorized aliens out of Florida."

DeSantis criticizes Democrats after sending migrants to Martha's Vineyard: 'Their virtue signaling is a fraud'.  Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis hit back at critics of his plan to transport illegal immigrants entering the state, saying that blue "sanctuary cities" are now being forced to observe the ramifications of a weak border.  DeSantis made the remarks Thursday after Democrats called the transportation of migrants a political stunt.  "We take what's happening at the southern border very seriously, unlike some," DeSantis said in a Thursday speech, "and unlike the president of the United States, who has refused to lift a finger to secure that border."

Martha's Vineyard deports 50 illegal migrants to Cape Cod military base after the billionaire's haven declared a 'humanitarian emergency'.  Illegal immigrants who were flown in unannounced to Martha's Vineyard on Wednesday are now being moved to a military base in Cape Cod.  The 50 migrants have been put on buses by Gov. Charlie Baker to travel the 32 miles to Joint Base in Cape Cod (JBCC) just 48 hours after they landed in the billionaire's enclave.  Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis flew in the immigrants from Venezuela on Wednesday, sparking a widespread cry of outrage from the liberal leaders of the small island in Massachusetts.

Friction between White House and senior Homeland Security officials mounts as migrant border crossings soar.  Friction between the Biden White House and senior officials at the Department of Homeland Security over how to handle immigration is mounting, according to internal documents and communications reviewed by NBC News, as the number of undocumented migrants crossing the southern border keeps rising and Republican governors send migrants to more Democratic-run cities.  The White House has recently hosted a series of high-level meetings on immigration, where DHS officials have presented options, including flying migrants to the country's northern border with Canada to alleviate overcrowding on the U.S.-Mexico border, according to two U.S. officials familiar with the discussions.  Some DHS officials have openly expressed frustration at those meetings with the White House's reluctance to take a page from the book of Republican governors and begin transporting migrants to cities within the U.S., according to internal communications obtained by NBC News.

Tucker Carlson Notices the Missing Jubilation in Martha's Vineyard as Dozens of Illegal Aliens Arrive.  A strange thing happened.  After lecturing the nation on the virtues of mass migration, the white liberal democrats on Martha's Vineyard did not celebrate the arrival of the non-white immigrants they have been demanding for years.  Fox News host Tucker Carlson noted in his monologue that Martha's Vineyard famous nimby residents, including former President Barack Obama, did not welcome the people of color as one would expect.  Instead of celebrating the new diversity, oddly the residents quickly moved to find alternate off island locations to accept the arriving immigrants.  [Video clip]

Send All of the Illegals to Martha's Vineyard.  In an extremely imaginative problem-solving (or problem-highlighting) move, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis on Wednesday flew two planeloads of illegal immigrants to Martha's Vineyard.  A Martha's Vineyard lawmaker tweeted that "our island jumped into action," and that "these immigrants were met with compassion, not chaos."  In another tweet, however, he accused Republicans of using human lives as "political pawns," calling it "evil and inhumane."  But if we take this lawmaker at his word in the first instance, where he sounds excited about welcoming illegally immigrated Mexicans into his community, then I think he may have solved the nation's immigration problem: We should be sending all our illegal immigrants to Martha's Vineyard.  After all, the busloads that arrived in Washington, D.C. were not welcomed as warmly.  So what if we take the Vineyardian's pro-illegal-immigrant rhetoric at face value?  About three-quarters of Vineyard voters went for Biden in 2020, so we're just honoring their expressed wishes.  Let's make Martha's Vineyard an open-borders socialist paradise.  Oh, the compassion you'll see!  Martha's Vineyard has a median home value of about three times the national average.  Obviously, for the sake of equity, we need to get those numbers down.

The wealthy socialists who live at Martha's Vineyard and turn up their noses at the few dozens illegal aliens now arriving there, are the same people who insisted we're all in this together when the Covid hoax came to town in 2019.

A Few Questions About The Martha's Vineyard Migrant Kerfuffle.  A person can make a compelling case that dropping unsuspecting migrants off in places like Chicago or San Francisco is cruel, but Martha's Vineyard?  Isn't it more humane to send migrants to well-heeled communities than to allow them to live in "squalor" in makeshift tent cities under highway overpasses?  Because I rarely hear the left worry about the latter.  Then again, why has a story about 50 migrants spending a couple of days on Martha's Vineyard garnered far more coverage and outrage from the media and left punditry than 51 migrants being cooked alive in a tractor-trailer only last month?  Why is it barely news that officials dumped 1,000 migrants into the streets of El Paso to fend for themselves the very same day those 50 people arrived in beautiful Martha's Vineyard?  Is it humane that some Texas cities see 200,000 newcomers every month or that places like Del Rio, Texas, with a population of nearly 35,000, are forced to house nearly 50,000 newcomers in "squalid conditions" when pristine sanctuary cities are asked to do nothing?

Facebook Thread Shows How Martha's Vineyard Residents Really Felt About Illegal Immigrants In Their Community And It's Not Something You Can See On The MSM.  It seems every day the Biden administration slogs on, more proof arises of screenwriter Burt Prelutsky's maxim: "If liberals didn't have double standards, they wouldn't have any standards at all."  The latest humiliating examples of progressive hypocrisy came from the elitist enclave of Martha's Vineyard, an island south of Cape Cod, Massachusetts.  This morning pundits have been working really hard to make a big deal about how the people of Martha's Vineyard took care of these 48 illegal immigrants[.]

Massachusetts Governor Activates National Guard as Martha's Vineyard Migrants Removed from Island.  Massachusetts governor Charlie Baker said Friday he is deploying up to 125 National Guard members in response to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis sending a group of just 50 illegal immigrants to Martha's Vineyard.  "Our Administration has been working across state government to develop a plan to ensure these individuals will have access to the services they need going forward, and Joint Base Cape Cod is well equipped to serve these needs," the governor said.  The national guardsmen will meet the immigrants at Joint Base Cape Cod on the mainland.  Buses retrieved the group of Venezuelans from St. Andrews church in Edgartown on Martha's Vineyard Friday morning, roughly 24 hours after they arrived on the island from San Antonio, Texas.

Biden's border crisis now overwhelming El Paso with street encampments.  A new surge of migrants, primarily from Venezuela, is overwhelming the Border Patrol and shelters in El Paso, Texas, where nearly 1,000 have been released near bus stations over the past week.  Illegal immigrants were released in the United States "in hope that they will find their own way to their next destinations in the U.S."  The conclusion is that the migrants were ordered to be released with the expectation they will stay in the United States.

Ri-i-i-ight.  I presume Hawaii was not one of the options they were given.
NYC is relocating migrants to Florida, after city's immigration boss claimed that's where they'd rather be.  New York City officials are going to fly out migrants to Florida after claiming many of them did not want to come to the Big Apple.  The Commissioner of Immigration Affairs for the city says that a lot of the migrants being bussed from Texas by Gov Greg Abbott are coming from Venezuela.  Manuel Castro claims that the majority of illegal immigrants that have arrived to New York want to go to Florida because of their large community of Venezuelans.

Top Biden official met with Soros activists ahead of border crisis discussions: Report.  Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas held private meetings with border activists linked to liberal megadonor George Soros just before commiserating with Texas Border Patrol agents last year over the out-of-control migrant crisis, Judicial Watch has reported.  The meetings occurred during an August 2021 visit promoted by the Biden administration to temper news of a record-breaking monthly crossing of 213,000 immigrants in Texas alone.  Mayorkas admitted America was losing the war against illegal immigration.

There is no "war against illegal immigration."  Quite the opposite is the reality:  Illegal immigration is being encouraged and abetted by socialist Democrats in a wholesale exercise of the Cloward-Piven strategy.  Illegal immigration is unimpeded.

Lori Lightfoot Drops Biden With the Priceless Words We've Been Waiting to Hear About Illegal Aliens.  We saw the left melting down on Thursday after Texas bused illegal aliens to Kamala Harris' house in Washington, D.C., and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis sent 50 illegal aliens up to Martha's Vineyard where the liberal elite like Barack Obama live and take vacations.  They can't even handle 50 illegal aliens without declaring an emergency, while border towns deal with thousands every day.  Texas began sending illegal aliens to Chicago, a sanctuary city, in August.  Mayor Lori Lightfoot's office claimed that they would be welcoming.  "As a person of faith, I believe we must see God's presence in all human beings," Lightfoot said.  "That's what being a good Christian is."  The "good Christian" was lying, because once they arrived, Lightfoot rounded them up and then shipped them out to suburbs like Burr Ridge.  Lori Lightfoot had blasted Texas Gov. Greg Abbott for treating the migrants like "cargo" and not providing her with advance notice they were arriving.  But then, she turned around and did the same thing.

Migrants In the Vineyard.  The strategy of Greg Abbott and others to send illegal aliens to sanctuary cities around the country was a stroke of genius.  Not that it was original:  for at least the last five or six years, a friend has been emailing me to the effect that illegals should be sent to Marin County, Nancy Pelosi's San Francisco mansion, and, above all, Martha's Vineyard.  That, he said, would bring the open border problem to a screeching halt.  And it may.  Ron DeSantis's master stroke of sending two planeloads of aliens to Martha's Vineyard has made liberal heads explode.  The irony is evident to everyone.  These places are "sanctuaries" for illegal aliens, but if they actually see a few of them they panic.  Their yards boast "All Are Welcome Here" signs, but it turns out that some are more welcome than others.

KJP: It's 'Cruel' To Send Migrants To Liberal Sanctuary Cities.  White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Thursday that the policy of transporting illegal migrants from Florida and Texas to Democrat-run cities is "cruel."  A White House reporter asked the press secretary to comment on migrants being transported to the "Democratic haven" of Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, and the Vice President Kamala Harris' official residence in Washington, D.C.  The press secretary said the policy is a "political stunt" and "cruel."  "It is a political stunt, that's what we're seeing from governors, Republican governors in particular and it is a cruel, inhumane way of treating people who are fleeing communism, people who are — and we're not just talking about people, we're talking about children, we're talking about families — who are promised a home, promised a job, put on a bus and driven to a place they do not know.  And it is a cruel thing to do," Jean-Pierre said.

The Editor says...
[#1] The overwhelming majority of illegal aliens are not fleeing communism or anything else, other than unemployment.  Many of them proudly wave the flags of the countries from which they are "fleeing," so the conditions at home can't be that bad.  By and large, they are just looking for menial jobs and generous government handouts.  [#2] Most of the people coming across the border are unaccompanied by family members, and many are crossing the border for the purpose of giving birth to an "anchor baby" that will prevent their deportation.  [#3] It is extremely unlikely that any significant percentage of the new arrivals have been "promised a home, [or] promised a job."  [#4] If the illegal aliens are being "driven to a place they do not know," that's immaterial, because most of them are crossing into a country they've never been to, so the whole country is "a place they do not know."

What Joe Biden and the Media Don't Want You to Know About the 'Bused Migrants' Nontroversy.  I've watched with a mixture of perplexion and amusement at the mainstream media handwringing over Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis shipping off planeloads of illegal immigrants to Martha's Vineyard and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott sending more to Vice President Kamala Harris' doorstep just days after she falsely declared the southern border to be "secure."  As evidence of the freakout, check out how CNN's morning crew characterized the moves:  [Tweet]  I mean who knew that Martha's Vineyard was the new Auschwitz?

Uh-oh, I guess DeSantis is Hitler now.
CNN is Comparing Ron DeSantis Sending Illegal Migrants to Martha's Vineyard to the Holocaust.  Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Wednesday sent an estimated 50 migrants to Martha's Vineyard on two planes on Wednesday.  The hysterical fallout in the liberal media is aleady palpable.  On Thursday morning, CNN host John Berman had on documentarian Ken Burns to discuss his film "Defying the Nazis: The Sharps' War" and asked him about how DeSantis' publicity campaign is comparable to the Nazi holocaust.

Ron DeSantis sends two planes of illegal immigrants to Martha's Vineyard.  Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis followed through on his promise to drop off illegal immigrants in progressive states, sending two planes full of migrants to Martha's Vineyard on Wednesday.  A video provided to Fox News Digital shows the migrants deboarding the planes at Martha's Vineyard Airport in Massachusetts.  "Yes, Florida can confirm the two planes with illegal immigrants that arrived in Martha's Vineyard today were part of the state's relocation program to transport illegal immigrants to sanctuary destinations," the governor's communications director, Taryn Fenske, told Fox News Digital.

Biden's illegal migrant surge costs taxpayers $20.4 billion a year: study.  As if inflation brought on by government overspending weren't high enough already, a new study shows that Joe Biden's illegal migrant surge is costing taxpayers $20.4 billion a year, or $9,232 for each illegal migrant. [...] Some two million migrants have come on in at Biden's incentivization of illegal entry, flooding cities such as El Paso, which has now been described by locals as looking like "a third-world country," according to the New York Post.  Biden's catch-and-release policies of unvetted migrants into the country have created a disaster for U.S. national security, imported third-world crime, and created a huge burden for U.S. taxpayers, who are already burdened by Biden's multiple government spending packages, all of which create inflation.  The $20.4 billion figure, times four years of Joe Biden's presidency, would bring the migrant total cost to $81.6 billion for the taxpayers, which is well more than the $62.5 billion that Joe Biden has shipped to Ukraine to help that country protect its borders.

Buses of Illegal Immigrants Arrive at Kamala Harris' House, Shrieking Ensues.  As RedState reported on Wednesday evening, Gov. Ron DeSantis sent two planes of illegal immigrants to Martha's Vineyard, a favorite landing place for rich, liberal elites, including Barack Obama.  Greg Abbott wasn't to be outdone, though.  News broke on Thursday morning that two busloads of illegal immigrants were dropped off at Kamala Harris' doorstep.  That came just days after the vice president had proclaimed the border "secure."  Here's what that contrast looked like.  Secure, indeed.  [Tweet]

Biden's Proposed Public Benefits for Aliens Rule [is] Akin to [an] Unfunded Mandate.  In its latest effort to "remove barriers" to immigration, the Department of Homeland Security is finalizing the long-awaited public charge rule, codifying a weak standard that upends congressional intent, decades of precedent, and the core American value of self-reliance.  The term "public charge" first appeared in statute in 1882, when Congress barred the admission of "any person unable to take care of himself or herself without becoming a public charge."  More than 100 years later, Congress issued a statement of national policy on self-sufficiency and immigration when it enacted the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996.  The statement confirmed that aliens within the United States should not be reliant on public resources, lest those public benefits become an incentive for immigration.  For more than 30 years, temporary guidance governed our understanding and administration of the public charge doctrine.  This narrow interpretation was merely a placeholder for final regulations.  When the only meaningful reforms were made to the doctrine during the Trump administration, liberal activist courts invalidated the rules to gut this commonsense requirement.

Martha's Vineyard Chamber Declares 'Humanitarian Crisis' over Arrival of 50 Migrants.  The Chamber of Commerce of Martha's Vineyard said the island was facing a "humanitarian crisis" after Florida Governor Ron DeSantis sent planes carrying 50 illegal immigrants to the island Wednesday afternoon.  [Tweet]  "To our Island community, here is an update on current humanitarian crisis on Martha's Vineyard... we thank people for their continued help," the island's Chamber of Commerce tweeted Thursday.  A statement from the Dukes County Emergency Management Association included in the tweet said the island is providing "shelter, food, and care" to the illegal immigrants who arrived yesterday and that "a coalition of Vineyard towns, community-based, and nonprofit groups are assisting in this effort."

Wealthy Martha's Vineyard residents face pressure to welcome migrants into their multi-million dollar homes.  Conservatives have joked that Martha's Vineyard residents will be tearing down woke yard signs proclaiming that refugees and migrants are welcome after Ron DeSantis flew 50 of them to the wealthy island.  Right-wing commenters believe many residents of the ritzy enclave will be tearing down the popular signs for fear of being asked to put their money where their mouths are, and take in some of the mainly-Venezuelan incomers.  'Whole lotta Martha's Vineyard residents about to take down the 'all are welcome here' lawn signs sitting in front of their mansions,' joked Andrew Wagner, a GOP operative in Minnesota, in a tweet.

Ron DeSantis has Martha's Vineyard elites feeling blue.  [Scroll down] Still, it would take a heart of stone not to laugh at the consternation that is gripping the elites as they are suddenly forced to ... Celebrate Diversity.  Martha's Vineyard — so many trust-funders, legacies and members of assorted Protected Classes, all abruptly forced to confront the spectacle of what Deplorables must endure day after dystopian day.  How's that Great Reset working out for you now, David Letterman?  Chris Wallace?  Spike Lee?  Larry David?  Amy Schumer?  Meg Ryan?  Caroline Kennedy?

Officials From Martha's Vineyard Hold Emergency Meeting Following Arrival of an Estimated 50 Illegal Immigrants.  According to The Boston Globe, officials in Martha's Vineyard are holding an emergency meeting to deal with the crisis of 43 illegal alien arrivals, including one four-year-old child.  The group arrived via a chartered flight dispatched by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.  According to state representative Dylan Fernandes, "when you look at the limited housing options on Martha's Vineyard, as I'm sure many of the folks here are aware, it's likely we're going to need an off island location."  As noted by the Globe ..."a Zoom meeting has been scheduled for emergency management officials from the island along with people from the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency to discuss the next step for the immigrants."

Martha's Vineyard [is] in chaos after DeSantis ships migrants to liberal enclave.  The posh liberal enclave of Martha's Vineyard has been thrown into chaos by the arrival of two planeloads of migrants sent there by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, according to local reports.  Roughly 50 migrants were flown to the famed Massachusetts island — constituting what the local tourism board called a "humanitarian crisis" Thursday.  "This is an ongoing situation," wrote a county emergency-management rep in a statement, noting that local authorities "are actively collaborating to develop a coordinated regional response.["]  "We have reached out to our State and Federal partners for additional and long term support and assistance."

Martha's Vineyard Homeless Shelter Coordinator Melts Down Over Illegals Flown to Island.  The melt down over the 50 illegals flown to Martha's Vineyard is fun to watch.  Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) on Wednesday sent two planes of illegal aliens to Martha's Vineyard.  The racist white limousine liberals on Martha's Vineyard are not happy about their new poor, brown neighbors.  Martha's Vineyard happily hosts thousands of tourists every summer, however when 50 poor illegals are dumped on the island it is a "humanitarian crisis."

Gavin Newsom asks DOJ to consider 'kidnapping' charges after GOP governors ship migrants out of state.  California Gov. Gavin Newsom has asked the Department of Justice to look into whether sending migrants to other parts of the country constituted kidnapping or other federal crimes.  In a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland, Newsom asked whether actions by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis sending illegal immigrants from their respective states to destinations such as New York City, Washington, D.C.[,] Chicago, and Martha's Vineyard were illegal.  "Several of the individuals who were transported to Martha's Vineyard have alleged that a recruiter induced them to accept the offer of travel based on false representations that they would be transported to Boston and would receive expedited access to work authorization," Newsom wrote.  "I urge US DOJ to investigate whether the alleged fraudulent inducement would support charges of kidnapping under relevant state laws."

El Paso Mayor Buses Migrants to NYC to Relieve Overwhelmed Detention Facilities.  The surge of migrants moving west to the El Paso Border Patrol Sector led to the apprehension of approximately 30,000 in August, a source within U.S. Customs and Border Protection says.  The trend overwhelmed the sector's detention capacity, forcing agents to carry out street releases.  Agents in the El Paso Sector jumped into the number two spot with the apprehension of just under 30,000 migrants, Breitbart Texas reported.  This is up from approximately 25,000 apprehended in July.  With one month to go in the fiscal year, agents in the El Paso Sector apprehended nearly 260,000 migrants.

Two buses with migrants arrive outside Vice President Kamala Harris' Naval Observatory residence in DC.  Two migrant buses from Del Rio, Texas, arrived near Vice President Kamala Harris' residence at the Naval Observatory in Washington, D.C., Thursday morning.  Between 75 and 100 people who were picked up in Eagle Pass, Texas, were sent by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott.  The group includes migrants from Venezuela, Uruguay, Colombia and Mexico.  Multiple migrants, asked by Fox News Digital, said they think the border is open, contrary to what Harris said Sunday during an interview.

Illinois mayor demands an apology from the governor for sending illegal migrants without notice.  Mayor Craig Johnson of Elk Grove Village, Illinois wants an apology from Governor Pritzker for bussing 90 illegal migrants to the Chicago suburb on very little notice or advance planning.  Chicago, a sanctuary city, has received buses from Texas and Arizona to ease the Biden border crisis.  Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is having a meltdown over the buses arriving in Chicago.  Her city is the nation's third largest and yet she acts as though a small number of new arrivals to Chicago will be too much of a burden for city resources.  She sent 64 illegal migrants to Burr Ridge, Illinois last week after a bus filled with 147 migrants arrived in Chicago.  Now a second suburb has received illegal migrants and the mayor said enough is enough.  Ninety illegal migrants were bussed to a motel in Elk Grove Village.  Mayor Johnson received about an hour's notice of the arrival and no other information.

Ron Johnson: Obama Said Border Had a 'Crisis' When Numbers Were Less than 1/3 of What They Are Now.  On Monday [...] Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) reacted to Vice President Kamala Harris maintaining the border is secure by pointing out that back in June 2014, then-President Barack Obama said there was a "humanitarian crisis" on the border when there were approximately 2,000 apprehensions per day on the southwest border, compared to the between 6,000 and 7,000 encounters per day at the border over the past two months.  Johnson said, "[T]he governors in the southwestern states there are dealing with about 7,000 people per day that they're encountering, and because of the Biden administration's open-border policy, processing and dispersing all around this country."

Census: Biden Grows Foreign-Born Population to Highest Level Ever.  Under President Joe Biden, the foreign-born population of the United States has grown to its highest level ever recorded, the U.S. Census Bureau reports.  Over the last year, the Biden administration added two million new foreign-born residents to the U.S. population — illegal aliens and legal immigrants on green cards and visas — serving as a boon for Biden's billionaire donors in the financial industry who are some of the biggest beneficiaries of mass immigration and an ever-growing populace.

El Paso looks like a 'third-world country' after Texas border city is overrun by migrants.  Shocking photos show President Biden's border crisis has hit a new peak in El Paso, Texas — where a historic flood of migrants has turned the city into what a local pol says resembles "a third-world country."  Regional Border Patrol Chief Gloria Chavez posted snapshots Monday night on Instagram that showed hordes of migrants dumped under an El Paso bridge over the weekend because the city has no more room to even process them.  "We've never seen anything like this," said outraged US Rep. Tony Gonzales (R-Texas), whose district covers part of the city, as El Paso began grappling with its highest daily influx ever last month.  "It's a scene that you would see in a third-world country, not in the streets of El Paso."  Gonzalez warned, "Everything that I've been told and every indication tells me that we haven't seen the worst yet.

Official greeter for illegals.  New York City Mayor Eric Adams must be a weird dude.  He [gripes] about the illegal immigrants Texas Governor Greg Abbott buses up to his sanctuary city and dispatches an official greeter to welcome them.  He's funny that way.  Perhaps he illustrates the contradictions inherent in making the Democrats' platform of national suicide real.  I wondered about that official greeter.  Why haven't we heard more about him?  He walks the Democrats' walk, shall we say.  According to CNN's Ray Sanchez, his name is Manuel Castro.  Appointed by Adams, Castro is Commissioner of the NYC Mayor's Office of Immigrant Affairs.  The city has posted his biography [elsew]here.  Sanchez is vague on Castro's status.  It states: "Castro himself crossed the US-Mexico border with his mother when he was 5." [...] The notion of illegality does not cross Sanchez's keyboard.  The illegal aliens are of course "undocumented immigrants and asylum seekers."  They are the heroes of Sanchez's story.

Joe Biden Asks Congress for $ Billions More to Fund His Catch-and-Release Network.  The White House is asking Congress for another $5 billion to bus, fly, and house the southern flood of economic migrants into Americans' workplaces and housing.  Any additional funding will accelerate the federal "cheap labor distribution [network] that too many politicians in Washington are willing to participate in," said John Feere, a former homeland security official.  He now works for the Center for Immigration Studies.  The inflow of workers, renters, and consumers "benefits groups on both sides of the border — governments, human smuggling operations, and businesses," he told Breitbart News.

Migrants bussed to sanctuary city Chicago are promptly shipped off to suburbs.  A group of over 100 migrants from the southern border were moved to an Illinois suburb after being welcomed in Chicago — an action that is reportedly frustrating local officials.  The migrants are staying at a Hampton Inn in Burr Ridge and a Holiday Inn in Countryside, according to reporting by WGN-TV.  An estimated 300 migrants have been bused from Texas to Chicago in the past two weeks.  While Chicago is a sanctuary city and Cook County is a sanctuary county, the migrants at the Burr Ridge Hampton Inn are in DuPage County.  The county's sanctuary status is unclear.  However, Burr Ridge Republican Mayor Garry Grasso previously said he would work to secure the border and "defund sanctuary cities," according to WGN-TV.

52,000 Migrants Crossed One Texas Border Sector in August.  Agents apprehended more than 52,000 migrants who illegally crossed the Mexican border into the Texas-based Del Rio Sector in August, according to a source within U.S. Customs and Border Protection.  This is an increase over the record-setting number of apprehensions set in July in what has become the nation's busiest Border Patrol sector.  A source operating under the umbrella of CBP told Breitbart Texas that agents in the Del Rio Sector apprehended nearly 1,700 migrants per day in August.  This raised the number of migrants apprehended in the sector from 50,000 in July to more than 52,000 in August — an increase of four percent.

Feds Annually Outsource over Half a Million American Jobs to Foreign Visa Workers.  The number of American jobs outsourced to foreign visa workers each year has exploded in recent decades to more than half a million, federal data suggests.  The Immigration Act of 1990, signed by then-President George H.W. Bush, greatly expanded the number of visa programs and created today's business model where employers import foreign visa workers in droves to take American jobs in blue-collar and white-collar industries.  Federal data from the State Department shows that in 2021, almost 550,000 foreign visa workers were allowed to enter the United States labor market to take American jobs.  Most of those half a million foreign visa workers, almost 470,000, arrived on the H1-B, H-4, H2-A, and H2-B visas.

The origins of illegal migrants are shifting rapidly.  Traditionally, we've tended to think of the problem of illegal immigration across America's southern border as consisting almost entirely of migrants (including drug-runners and coyotes) from Mexico and the Northern Triangle nations of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.  And to be sure, those four nations still account for many illegal aliens arriving in our country.  But there's been a decided shift in the migrants' points of origin since Joe Biden took over and implemented his open border policies.  According to recent statistics released by Customs and Border Protection, people falling into the fourth "other" category, representing all of the rest of the countries in the world, now outnumber those coming from those four countries.  Many are still Hispanic migrants from further off in South America, but we're increasingly seeing more from Europe and Africa as well.

Gates Left Open to Prevent Flooding Highlight Breaches, Weaknesses In Arizona's Wall With Mexico.  The Chevy pickup truck growled like a wary pitbull as it crept along the narrow dirt road parallel to Arizona's southern border wall fence with Mexico.  Sam, the owner of a private Arizona security firm, stopped the truck and put the gear in park.  "We're on the Roosevelt Easement right now," he says bluntly.  "The federal government owns this entire road."  Something, though, was glaringly out of place on Aug. 24.  Three massive irrigation gates built into the steel border wall fence were open for anyone to walk through.

6 Ways Democrats Are 'Threatening Democracy'.  [#6] Forfeiture Of Border Sovereignty: Since day one, Biden sought to undermine the security of the U.S. Southern border by halting wall construction, removing protections such as the Migrant Protection Protocols (also known as the Remain in Mexico program), and explicitly scaling back ICE arrests and deportations.  As a result, record numbers of illegal migrants and illicit drugs are flowing across the U.S. border with little to no scrutiny or consequence.  Politicians and voters, both red and blue, have warned against the dangers and strain of an unregulated flow of illegal migrants into the nation's cities.  Despite these concerns, the Biden administration and border czar Kamala Harris are silent, only stepping in or piping up when they want to remove protective measures such as Title 42 or spread lies about Border Patrol agents whipping migrants.  Democrats in Congress have also gone out of their way to reject legislation designed to curb the crisis.

FEMA to Cover El Paso Costs of Busing Illegal Immigrants to New York, Official Says.  The Biden administration will reimburse El Paso city, which is following the lead of other border cities in Texas and Arizona to transport illegal immigrants to New York on buses, according to a city official.  El Paso officials this week sent 35 Venezuelans to New York City on chartered buses as they moved to address the growing number of illegal immigrants arriving via the U.S. southern border from South America, local media reported.  The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has said it will reimburse local governments and NGOs for the cost of aiding and transporting the illegal aliens, according to Mario D'Agostino, the deputy city manager of El Paso.  "OEM has sponsored and provided transportation services for migrants out of El Paso, which is reimbursable through FEMA," D'Agostino said in a statement obtained by El Paso Matters, referring to the city's Office of Emergency Management.

What if Your Attorney Is an Illegal Alien?  There are currently eight states where illegal aliens can practice law (CA, CT, FL, IL, NE, NJ, NY, and WY).  Joining this dubious list on October 1 will be New Mexico.  There are federal civil and criminal penalties for knowingly employing an illegal alien.  Here is the statute.  8 USC 1324 (a)(4) provides for civil penalties and section (f) for criminal penalties.  So the Supreme Courts of these states are actively aiding and abetting the commission of a federal crime.  Let this sink in.  The Supreme Courts of nine states know that it is against the law for an illegal alien to be present in and work in the United States, but they are saying, "We don't care."  So much for the rule of law in general and the Supremacy Clause in particular.

The Biden Admin Is Paying To Bus Illegal Migrants To New York City.  The federal government is paying to bus illegal migrants from one border town to New York City, a Texas official told the Daily Caller News Foundation.  The city government of El Paso, Texas, is busing illegal migrants to the Big Apple on the dime of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Deputy City Manager Mario D'Agostino told the DCNF Monday.  The federal agency covers the travel costs of illegal migrants through a grant program.  "The travel costs for migrants are covered through FEMA's emergency food and shelter grant.  The City/OEM submits for reimbursement on a quarterly basis as the process dictates," D'Agostino told the DCNF.  "With the goal to provide for the safety of the migrants from the elements and to preserve the community's transitory hospitality shelter capacities so they may continue to serve our homeless community, OEM [Office of Emergency Management] has sponsored and provided transportation services for migrants out of El Paso, which is reimbursable through FEMA," he said.

The True Cost of Student Loans.  In 1987 Ronald Reagan agreed to an amnesty for illegal immigrants.  At the time it was a deal that would see current illegal migrants given amnesty in exchange for more border security.  The border security was never delivered but the amnesty part was, naturally.  There were as many as 11 million illegal migrants in the U.S. at the time of the amnesty, and at least three million were legalized under the exact terms of the amnesty.  This amnesty did nothing but incentivize further illegal immigration.  The precedent had now been set that the U.S. was in the habit of forgiving illegal immigration.  All you had to do was sneak into the U.S., sit tight, and wait for the next amnesty.

Hmmm.  This article says there were 11 million illegal aliens in the U.S. in 1987, and that's the same estimate routinely given by the news media 35 years later.

4.9 Million Illegal Aliens Blew Past the US Border in the 18 Months Since Biden was Installed in Office.  In a report by the Federation for American Immigration Reform that was released on August 16, 2022, close to 5 million illegal alien invaders have crossed the United States borders in the 18 months since President Joe Biden was installed in office.  In sum, 4.9 million illegal aliens have entered the US by the end of July.  Rita Li of The Epoch Times noted that this number includes 900,000 "gotaways" who escaped apprehension and have scurried into the American interior.  "Roughly the equivalent of the entire population of Ireland has illegally entered the United States in the 18 months President Biden has been in office, with many being released into American communities," FAIR President Dan Stein observed in the statement.

Democrat-Linked Group Claims 96,000 Extra Immigrant Voters in Georgia.  A Democrat-backed group claims to have naturalized almost 100,000 legal immigrants in Georgia before the November elections.  "Over 96,000 newly naturalized Americans in the state, who naturalized between 2016 and 2020, could significantly influence the outcome of the 2022 midterm elections,' said the press statement by National Partnership for New Americans (NPNA), the SEIU union, and various Georgia-based, pro-migration groups. [...] The naturalization includes many Indians, who are one of the most pro-diversity, pro-Democratic immigrant blocs.  "The number of newly naturalized citizens originally from India, 11,188, is nearly equal to the margin of victory during the November 2020 presidential election," the statement said.  Georgia used to be a solidly red state.  However, the growing number of legal and illegal migrants recruited by businesses has allowed the Democrats to gain state seats and to win a national Senate majority in 2021 when Georgians elected two Democrat Senators.

NYC [is] now using 14 hotels to house migrants amid ongoing surge: officials.  The ongoing surge of migrants to the Big Apple has forced the city to strike emergency deals with 14 hotels because the shelter system is overloaded amid President Biden's border crisis.  Immigrant Affairs Commissioner Manuel Castro revealed the eye-popping total during a news conference at the Port Authority Bus Terminal in Manhattan, where five buses arrived Thursday carrying migrants relocated by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott — matching Wednesday's record number of buses.  City Hall pressed the 14th hotel into service on Thursday, up from 11 about two weeks ago, an official familiar with the matter told The [New York] Post.  In another stunning acknowledgment of the city's inability to deal with the situation, Castro said Mayor Eric Adams and Gov. Kathy Hochul have appealed to officials in other states for help housing migrants.

Out of Outrage.  [Scroll down] This might be enough to spark outrage, if there weren't instances of the illegal aliens flooding NY and DC now via buses from Texas, but getting welcomed there like returning heroes.  At the same time, the Mayors of NY and DC complain about the bus loads of them being delivered.  Which is it?  Oh, that's right, they're communists with cover being run by law enforcement, the FBI, the media and, in some instances, the church, so they don't get held to account for their hypocrisy or blatant criminality.

Note to Mayor Adams:  Texas has lots of buses, and at least a million illegal aliens.
5 more migrant buses from Texas arrive in NYC as Abbott calls out Adams' 'hypocrisy'.  Five more buses arrived in New York City from Texas on Wednesday, the most buses in one day to reach the Big Apple.  The new buses are only the latest to make the trip — Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has sent more than 1,000 migrants to New York since Aug. 5, his office has said.  Abbott began sending migrants out of his state to liberal cities like New York and Washington, D.C., thousands of miles from the U.S.-Mexico border, as a way to bring attention to the migrant crisis affecting his state.

GOP House members demand Mayorkas answer why he's allowing illegals to use warrants as ID on planes.  Two dozen House Republicans are demanding answers over what they call an "extremely troubling" TSA policy on allowing illegal immigrants to board planes using arrest warrants and related documents as identification.  On Monday, the group of GOP lawmakers led by Rep. Andy Biggs of Arizona wrote a letter to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas requesting an explanation about why the illegal aliens have been permitted to use civil immigration arrest warrants and deportation orders as identifying documents despite their not being included on the list of acceptable forms of ID put out by the Transportation Security Administration.  The letter starts off by scorching President Biden's top immigration enforcement official for his ongoing failures:  "Under your leadership the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is failing to take the steps necessary to achieve and maintain operational control of our borders.  Instead of securing our borders, your department is facilitating the release of illegal aliens into the country.  Your catch and release policies have made our country less secure and are encouraging illegal aliens to cross our borders."

Pentagon Denies DC Mayor Muriel Bowser's second plea for the National Guard to deal with huge influx of migrants.  The Pentagon has denied a second request by Washington DC's mayor to help receive migrants arriving from Republican-led states Texas and Arizona.  Mayor Muriel Bowser in July called for the deployment of the District of Columbia National Guard to help with migrants describing it as a 'humanitarian crisis'.  Bowser asked for 90-day deployment and for a review at the end of that period, but the request was denied by the U.S. military.

NYC could spend $300M annually to house migrants in hotels: analysis.  The Big Apple could be on the hook for more than $300 million per year to provide shelter space in hotels for newly arrived migrants, a [New York] Post analysis shows.  City officials have either rented or announced plans to secure roughly 5,800 hotel rooms over the last month in response to the influx from the southern border, which quickly overwhelmed the already-strained homeless shelter system.  One of the largest operations is planned for the ROW NYC hotel on 8th Avenue in Midtown, where officials are looking to rent as many as 600 rooms and provide intake and other services for the recent arrivals.

The Editor says...
It sounds like the New York City government is doing everything it can to attract more immigrants.  Or do they think nobody outside of the U.S. will find out about the luxury hotels?

Border Crossers Awarded Healthcare, Free Cellphones Upon Arrival in NYC.  Border crossers arriving in New York City on migrant buses sent from Texas by Gov. Greg Abbott (R) are being awarded healthcare services as well as free cellphones, among other things.  On Sunday, as the New York Post reports, the city's hospital system held an event for arriving border crossers at a hospital in the Bronx where they were offered healthcare services along with free cellphones, food, library cards, and school supplies.  The event comes as Mayor Eric Adams (D) estimates that, in the last few weeks, Abbott has bused more than 4,000 border crossers to New York City as part of his plan to alleviate waves of illegal immigration to Texas by transporting new arrivals to sanctuary cities run by Democrats.

The Border Goes North, and Blue City Mayors Melt Down.  The border has come to northern, blue cities — and Democrats aren't handling it well.  July's border numbers are in, and the Biden administration again has set an all-time record for unlawful crossings, surpassing 2021's historic numbers.  Most legacy and corporate media dodged this historic crisis, which began almost immediately under President Joe Biden's watch.  It's typically easy for the Acela corridor simply to ignore the plight of border states.  But red state governors, namely Greg Abbott of Texas and Doug Ducey of Arizona, have changed the dynamic by busing some of the countless border crossers directly to Washington, D.C., and New York City.  Now, the big, blue city mayors are having a fit and accusing Republicans of causing the mess.

A little taste of Laredo:
Hundreds of migrants line up at NYC hospital for healthcare, food, free phones.  Hundreds of migrants — at least some bussed to the Big Apple by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott — lined up outside Lincoln Hospital in the Bronx on Sunday to get health care coverage, food and other items including school supplies and free phones.  The event, organized by the city hospital system, was billed as a "resource and family fun day" for the migrants and their children, many of whom have come to New York City in droves in recent weeks.  "I came to New York about three days ago.  I am a welder, and I am looking for work here," Venezuelan refugee Adrian Medina, 32, said through a translator.

The Editor says...
Well, Adrian, there must be plenty of welding jobs in Mexico City, which you probably passed through recently.

Most illegal immigrants do not qualify for US asylum.  The arrival of busloads of migrants into New York City has raised questions about the administration's border policies.  Here are the facts about our increasingly dysfunctional immigration system:  Under US law, most migrants coming here without permission must be expelled.  The only exceptions are migrants fleeing torture or racial, religious, ethnic, political or social-group persecution.  "Economic refugee" is a contradiction, and "seeking a better life" means nothing if a migrant lacks permission to enter.

Biden's actions tell the truth:  He's gone full open borders.  The latest release of data from Customs and Border Patrol shows nearly 1.81 million arrests of illegal migrants at the southern border through July.  That's more than for all of last year — itself a grim record at 1.66 million — with months left in 2022; the year is well on pace to break the 2 million mark.  And most of those "arrested" are soon let loose inside the country, even though only 5% or so actually claim asylum.  The share who get sent back plummeted as soon as Biden took office and has continued to drop.  The administration has apparently given up on even mouthing "don't come," and its actions send the opposite message anyway.

Americans are figuring out that they are being invaded.  NPR/Ipsos released a poll last week addressing American views on immigration.  The bottom line is that more than half of Americans believe that there is an invasion taking place at our southern border and that it's bringing in lots of deadly, illegal drugs.  They're probably thinking this because we're on track to have more than 2 million totally unvetted illegal immigrants in this country just in 2022 because we're hearing about massive drug busts, because cartels are optimizing this human drag, because lots of people are overdosing, and because Greg Abbott's clever plan of shipping immigrants to D.C. and New York City is working.  But to NPR and Ipsos, all these Americans are victims of misinformation.

Nearly 5 Million Illegal Immigrants [have] Crossed [the] Border [so far] During [the] Biden Administration.  A whopping 4.9 million illegal immigrants have crossed our border since Biden has taken office, a report from the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) found.  The president of FAIR Dan Stein discussed the report, stating that "Roughly the equivalent of the entire population of Ireland has illegally entered the United States in the 18 months President Biden has been in office, with many being released into American communities."

2,200 border crossers in one day:  Shocking footage of Rio Grande.  Video from the border shows at least 700 migrants crossing into the U.S. from Mexico in the span of one day at just one border crossing in Eagle Pass, Texas.  It comes as Representative Tony Gonzales, a Republican from Texas, revealed that Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei offered to provide assistance to President Joe Biden at the southern border crisis if he were to ask for help.  Fox News' Bill Melugin posted a series of videos to Twitter on Sunday showing mass amounts of migrants crossing illegally and being apprehended by authorities at Texas' southern border.

NYC moving migrants into famed luxury Times Square hotel.  Mayor Eric Adams plans to convert the Row NYC — formerly known as the Milford Plaza and located in pricey, tourist-packed Times Square — into an intake center and shelter for as many as 600 migrant families amid the city's spiraling homelessness crisis, three sources familiar with the matter said.  "In a month or two, we're about to open up for [the city Department of Homeless Services], for homeless," a hotel staffer told The Post on Monday [8/15/2022].  "They're working on an agreement, a contract," the worker said of the plan, which is designed to help handle homeless border-crossers bused to the city from Texas.  "It'll be here at this hotel, but they'll keep the DHS shelter on a certain floor.  But that hasn't started yet, they said a month or two."  City Hall hasn't said what the hotel plan will cost or provided any other details about it, including who exactly will run the operation.

Migrants bussed in from Texas will be housed in $400-a-night luxury NYC hotel.  A luxury hotel in the center of Manhattan is set to become a hub for housing asylum-seeking migrants who have been bussed in from Texas.  The Row, which is based near tourist-packed Times Square, will become a shelter for as many as 600 migrant families in news that first reported by the New York Post.  Sources claim that they are going to place families and single people who have traveled from Texas after Gov George Abbott unveiled his plan to start transporting people from his southern state.

Migrants on Texas-to-NYC bus threaten to call cops when driver refuses to stop in Tennessee.  Immigrants on a Texas bus bound for the Big Apple — which was supposed to go to several cities along the way to let passengers off — threatened to call cops when the driver said they wouldn't be stopping in Tennessee, The [New York] Post has learned.  The charter bus is part of Texas Gov. Greg Abbott's border initiative.  The Post was in Del Rio, Texas, Friday morning [8/12/2022] as immigrants boarded the bus which was supposed to stop in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and Washington, D.C., before arriving at its final destination in New York City.  About 40 immigrants, a majority of the passengers, were supposed to get off in Chattanooga, they said.  By early Saturday, the bus driver told the asylum-seekers they would not be stopping in Chattanooga.

The Editor says...
[#1] Something is a little fishy about this story.  If the passengers are on a charter bus, the destination should be well known to all passengers.  Getting off the bus halfway to the destination is highly irregular, especially if the passengers are illegal aliens who are about to disappear and change their names before signing up for public housing and food stamps.  [#2] Here's a handy tip:  When you enter the country illegally, don't make trouble, and don't call the cops for any reason.

If Texas Border Towns Can Handle a Surge of Illegal Aliens, Why Can't New York City?  The mayor of McAllen, Texas, is bewildered.  Javier Villalobos is on the front lines of Joe Biden's border crisis and McAllen, along with other small and medium-sized Texas cities, has been overwhelmed with illegal aliens looking to get into the United States.  Villalobos has been following the story of a few thousand illegals being bused north to New York City and Washington, D.C., and the reaction from Democratic politicians in those cities.  He can't understand what their complaints are all about.  "You see New York, you see Washington kind of drowning with a few buses," Villalobos told Fox News.  "We used to get over a thousand-something people a day."

Another migrant bus arrives in NYC from Texas with 89 people on board, including five children.  A father traveled for over a month from Venezuela to Texas before boarding the bus to New York today with 89 other immigrants, including a family with a child as young as one.  Alexander Hernandez, 51, traveled for more than a month to get to the border in Texas to get into the US.  He is one of several migrants on the bus today which arrived at Port Authority early on Friday morning as part of an ongoing political battle between New York Mayor Eric Adams and Texas Governor Greg Abbott. [...] Some migrants on the bus were separated from their families before the trip and weren't aware they were headed to New York when they boarded the bus, including a man separated from his pregnant wife and children.

From 'Remain in Mexico' to 'Remain wherever'.  The Biden Administration has finally pulled the plug on "Remain in Mexico": [...] "Remain in Mexico" worked.  In fact, it worked so well that then candidate VP Biden promised to end it.  It was VP Biden pandering to the immigration activists and hoping that he'd never get elected and have to terminate the successful program.  It was also the Democrats pandering to Hispanics but not realizing that open borders is not what they want in South Texas.  Last, but not least, the absence of "Remain in Mexico" will overwhelm the Border Patrol agents trying to do their jobs.

The Biden Administration Is Accelerating The Illegal Border Invasion.  Following months of Biden administration shuttle diplomacy, multi-national U.S.-bound immigrants from more than 150 countries are now finding international routes to the southern border faster, easier, and less obstructed than ever before.  Panama has dramatically shortened the notorious Darien Gap route from South America for the first time.  Mexico has amended a years-old policy of using a national guard road blockade to slow U.S.-bound immigrants on its Guatemala border for one that now immediately hands out fast-pass visas straight to the American border.  Taken altogether, the new relative ease, safety, and swiftness of global journeys to the U.S. southern border should induce even greater numbers of foreign nationals to try the journey, especially those border-crossing nationalities the administration is currently allowing to remain.  The number of foreign nationals not from Mexico or Central America is at the highest level in American history, amid illegal migration already at record-breaking levels overall.

Greg Abbott tears into 'hypocrite' Mayor Adams for being 'upset about welcoming a few dozen migrants into to NYC'.  Greg Abbott's office tore into Eric Adams after the New York City mayor called the influx of illegal immigrants being bused to the Big Apple 'horrific'.  'Mayor Adams is hypocritically upset about welcoming a few dozen into his sanctuary city,' the Texas GOP governor's Press Secretary Renae Eze said in reaction to the comments made by the mayor over the weekend.  She explained in the statement:  'These migrants willingly chose to go to New York City, having signed a voluntary consent waiver, available in multiple languages, upon boarding that they agreed to the destination.'

NPR blasts GOP governors for busing illegal immigrants to DC 'with no plan for what's next'.  NPR became the latest mainstream outlet to attack Republican governors for the growing migrant crisis in liberal cities.  On Friday, NPR promoted their coverage of New York City and Washington, D.C., struggling to handle increasing numbers of illegal immigrants being dropped off in their cities by Govs. Greg Abbott of Texas and Doug Ducey of Arizona. The title of their article read "GOP governors sent buses of migrants to D.C. and NYC — with no plan for what's next."  "Texas and Arizona governors continue to send buses full of migrants and refugees to Washington, D.C.'s Union Station, just a few blocks from the Capitol building. Upon arrival no government officials are there to meet them," NPR's Twitter account wrote.

The Editor says...
[#1] "What's next" is now DC's problem.  It is a problem that originated in DC and is now manifesting there.  [#2] "What's next" is something the illegal aliens themselves should have thought about before entering this country as public parasites.  [#3] The concept of "sanctuary cities" was concocted by Democrats.  The purpose is to welcome illegal aliens and guarantee they won't be deported.  Why are they upset when someone accepts their offer?

Pentagon Chief Rejects DC Mayor Bowser's Request For National Guard Troops to Help with Influx of Illegal Aliens Being Bused in From Texas.  The Pentagon on Friday rejected DC Mayor Muriel Bowser's request for National Guard troops to help with the influx of illegal aliens being bused in from Texas.  Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin rejected Bowser's request, saying that it would hurt troop readiness, Reuters reported.  [Tweet]  Bowser last Thursday requested the activation of the National Guard to help deal with the influx of illegal aliens being bused into Washington, DC.  More than 4,000 illegal aliens have been bused into DC since mid-April.

NY Times Blames GOP Governors for 'Causing Havoc' by Busing Border Crossers to Democrat Sanctuary Cities.  The New York Times is blaming Republican governors for "causing havoc" by busing border crossers welcomed by the Biden administration to Democrat sanctuary cities.  As Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) and Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R) continue busing border crossers and illegal aliens to Democrat sanctuary cities, the Times published a piece titled "GOP Governors Cause Havoc by Busing Migrants to East Coast" where Republicans are seemingly blamed for President Joe Biden's expansive Catch and Release operation.

Gov. Abbott's idea to bus illegal migrants from Texas to NYC and DC is getting their attention.  Back in April, Texas's Republican governor, Greg Abbott, pledged to bus migrants who had entered Texas illegally to Washington, D.C. on a voluntary basis.  It was laughed at in the press and among Democrats as a "publicity stunt" at the time.  But the governor was dead serious, and kept that promise.  Leadership is contagious, and Abbott was soon joined by Arizona's Gov. Douglas Ducey.  For months, the states of Texas and Arizona have been sending charter buses of illegal border crossers being let in by Joe Biden's open borders policy to Washington, D.C.'s Union Station, near the Capitol building and now to New York City, led by Mayor Eric Adams, who loudly proclaims his city a sanctuary city, with laws on the books saying the city is required to provide housing to all comers.  Abbott's office says that over 6,100 migrants have been bussed to D.C. so far.  Abbott expanded his operation by transporting migrants to the Big Apple, which he said like Washington, D.C. is an "ideal destination" due to the city's generous treatment of homeless people.

Democrats suddenly realize open borders are a disaster.  Republican border-state governors are sending busloads of illegal entrants — released in their states by the Department of Homeland Security — to DC and New York City, prompting recriminations and pleas for federal cash from the Democratic mayors of those erstwhile immigrant-friendly cities.  Those mayors, seemingly unwittingly, are making the governors' point — that the administration has created a disaster at the US-Mexico line, requiring an immediate policy shift to protect lives and state and local finances.  It started in April.  Fed up with federal releases of large numbers of migrants into overwhelmed small towns in his state (including Uvalde), Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) began offering migrants free bus trips to DC to shift some of the burden to Washington.

First Texas bus of 50 mostly male illegal migrants arrives in NYC: Gov. Abbott says Big Apple is the 'ideal destination'.  The first bus of migrants sent from Texas by Governor Greg Abbott arrived in New York City on Friday morning.  The group was dropped off at Port Authority Bus Terminal in Manhattan after making the almost 2,000-mile trip from the border that lasted days.  A group of charity workers and volunteers greeted the roughly 50 migrants, who were mostly men, before they ventured into the city for hotels or shelters.  One of the arrivals[,] Jose Rodriguez, 38, told he chose New York because it has the 'best opportunities' of the options he was given when he crossed the border.

Excusing Illegal Immigration Comes Back to Bite Mayors of DC, NYC.  As busloads of illegal immigrants sent by border states Texas and Arizona make their way to the nation's capital, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser is feeling overrun.  Bowser on July 28 formally requested deployment of the National Guard to deal with the influx of illegal migrants as she claimed her city, the nation's capital, was at a "tipping point."  "This is a very significant issue," Bowser acknowledged in mid-July in a letter to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin.  "Our collective response and service efforts have now become overwhelmed."  The call for help comes after Bowser and other Democratic politicians initially downplayed the massive wave of illegal immigrants flooding across the nation's southern border and had done everything in their power to exacerbate the crisis.

Judge Strikes Down San Francisco Law Allowing Illegal Aliens to Vote.  A San Francisco, California, law that allowed illegal aliens and other foreign nationals to vote in some local elections was struck down in court late last week.  On July 29, San Francisco Superior Court Judge Richard Ulmer overturned the city's ordinance that was first passed in 2016, which allowed foreign nationals — including illegal aliens — to vote in citywide school board elections so long as they are the parent of a school-aged child and are not incarcerated or out on parole.  By 2018, as Breitbart News reported, the city had spent almost $400,000 to register a total of 61 foreign nationals to vote in the school board elections.

Los Angeles opens up county government jobs to 'non-citizens'.  At a time of rising unemployment and flight from one-party blue cities, what should Los Angeles come up with but a new plan to hire foreigners in county government posts? [...] This may well mean that illegal aliens will soon become the County of Los Angeles's ruling government.  Sure, the Times says illegals are excluded, but that's window dressing.  Anyone with DACA status would likely be included in the hireables list, as would anyone who's managed to cadge asylum from a pliant immigration judge or newly minted "asylum officer," as will any of the millions who have seen their charges dropped by the Department of Homeland Security and who are now free to roam the country.

Open Borders Activists Balk at Red States Busing Illegal Aliens to Blue States.  Open borders activists are balking at red states taking immigration enforcement into their own hands by busing border crossers and illegal aliens to blue states and cities like New York and Washington, DC.  In April, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) announced that state officials would begin chartering buses to transport border crossers and illegal aliens to Washington, DC, and other cities.

Catch-and-release for all:  Biden now seeks online asylum applications from anywhere in the world.  As if anyone needed more proof that the humanitarian disaster at the border is intentional and planned by the Bidenites, take a look at how they're trying to expand the right to claim asylum here from anywhere in the world. [...] That's right, as if the border surge didn't serve as sufficient warning to them about the foolishness of taking all comers who claim asylum, the Bidenites are now planning to make it even easier to claim asylum, opening up an online system for anyone, anywhere, to get into the U.S. by filing from abroad and flying on in.

Biden online asylum system an 'open invitation for Chinese spies' to enter US, key senator warns.  Oklahoma Republican Sen. James Lankford, who recently visited the U.S.-Mexico border, is warning that President Joe Biden's online asylum system is an "open invitation for Chinese spies" and all of Yemen to enter the U.S.  Under the emerging plans, asylum seekers "can just say, 'I have credible fear,' fly into the country, be here for eight years while they await their hearing," Lankford told Just the News after speaking at the America First Summit last week.  "This is an open invitation for Chinese spies to be able to come into the country.  It's an open invitation for everyone to come from Yemen, to say it's a war-torn country.  "Immigration is not designed to be just open to anyone who wants to come.  Asylum is the same definition as refugee.  If you're a refugee, you go to the next safest country, andthcoming you go there.  They're turning this on its head, saying if anyone wants to come to America for any reason, just come here, and we'll just take you from everywhere.  That's not what we're designed to be able to do."

No Sovereignty Without Border Security.  There are three very clear, very distinct and incontrovertible truths in America when it comes to immigration and border control.  They are truths that we should not marginalize or forget, but that we should keep at the top of mind moving forward.  The first truth is that America is a country of immigrants. [...] The second truth is that America is a country that now — due to a devastating combination of ill-conceived policy and reckless messaging — is reeling from a border security crisis of unconscionable heights.  It is a real crisis with daily ramifications that is imperiling the lives and livelihoods of American citizens across the country.  It is causing the exploitation of the desperate and vulnerable and filling the coffers of brutal criminals and thugs.  And the third truth — related to the first and second — is that no country has real sovereignty without borders.

The Editor says...
This country was founded by immigrants, but to say that "America is a country of immigrants" ignores those of us who were born here and didn't immigrate from anywhere.

As long as the problem was in Texas, she didn't care.  But now...
DC Mayor Muriel Bowser requests National Guard help after busloads of migrants cause 'crisis'.  Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser has requested the National Guard step in to help handle the arrival of thousands of migrants from the US-Mexico border, saying the nation's capital has reached a "tipping point."  In a July 19 request for assistance to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, Bowser reported that "over 4,000 individuals arriving on nearly 200 buses" have come to DC since April, when Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey pledged to put migrants on charter buses to protest the Biden administration's immigration policies.  "Our collective response and service efforts have now become overwhelmed," Bowser wrote.

Diversity-Loving Washington DC Mayor Calls For Drastic Measure To Deal With Illegal Immigrants.  Governors in states along our southern border have been vocal in their concerns regarding illegal immigration for years.  Their school and health care systems can't handle the additional workload, they explained.  The financial burden placed on their taxpayers was excessive and unfair, they shouted.  And the fact that such migrants were entering their states unvetted posed a serious threat to the health and security of their communities, they complained.  But government officials elsewhere in the country, particularly in our federal government and in blue cities such as New York and Washington D.C., dismissed the pleas from governors such as Greg Abbott in Texas and Doug Ducey in Arizona.  Both Ducey and Abbott are, after all, Republicans; and Republicans just don't like the brown people that come across their border with Mexico.  They're just whining bigots, that's all.  Then this past April, both Abbott and Ducey had had enough. [...] Just as the winter was turning into spring in the northeast, Arizona and Texas began busing these migrants northward, to cities such as New York and D.C.

Biden's Cabinet:  Let us Count the Ways.  [#4] Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas:  Mayorkas insists that our border is secure and there is no illegal immigration crisis.  His greatest skill is that he seems to lie more effortlessly, more easily in front of the camera than any of the other cabinet members.  He has probably done more damage to the country than any other cabinet member by his willingness to betray America's fundamental, long-term interests by encouraging the administration's intentional illegal immigration invasion.

Growing Number of Texas Counties Declare 'Invasion' at Border.  Two more Texas counties confirmed they have declared an invasion at the U.S.-Mexico border in recent days amid historically high illegal immigration.  The Parker County Commissioners Court unanimously voted this week to invoke a law to say that the United States and Texas are under invasion, local media reported.  Because of the significant presence of illegal immigration and drug trafficking, the declaration says it is "an invasion of Parker County, Texas, as the term 'invasion' is used in Article IV, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution and in Article 4, Section 7 of the Texas Constitution."  "I think we all know the border is a mess," Parker County Sheriff Russ Authier told commissioners during the meeting ahead of the vote.  "We see different aspects of it other than our partners who are on the border seeing the human side of the smuggling, trafficking of people.  A lot of what we're seeing here is the drug smuggling."

Mexico City residents angered by influx of Americans speaking English, gentrifying area: report.  An influx of Californians and other Americans has made its way to Mexico City, angering some locals who say they are gentrifying the area, according to a report.  The Los Angeles Times report on Wednesday outlined how some Mexican locals are "fed up" with the growing number of Americans, many from California, moving to and visiting the country, which has contributed to a rise in rent and a shift from Spanish to English in some places.

The Editor says...
Oh, yes, don't you just hate it when foreigners come to town and fail to assimilate?  But who's got this problem -- the U.S. or Mexico?  How many English-only TV stations are in Mexico City?  I'm guessing zero.  How many Spanish-only TV stations are on the air in Dallas?  About five.

Ted Cruz releases brutal video showing migrants who were recruited for human trafficking lining up at the border.  Sen. Ted Cruz accused the Biden administration of overseeing the 'worst plague of slavery in America since the Civil War' on Monday releasing a gruesome video displaying the toll on migrant children.  It shows footage of children being rounded up along the southern border, and ends with images of young migrants found dead.  Throughout, Cruz keeps up a commentary describing a 'narco slave trade' and blaming President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.

Biden's border of death.  More migrants have been found dead on the U.S. side of the southern border over the past nine months than have ever been recorded over a full year in history.  In 2020, when then-President Donald Trump's "Remain in Mexico" policy was in full effect, just 247 bodies were recovered by Border Patrol along the southern border.  According to internal documents obtained by the Washington Examiner, 609 bodies have been found so far this fiscal year (beginning last Oct. 1) through June, a pace that puts us well on track for more than 700 deaths over a calendar year.  President Joe Biden has been in office for over 18 months.  He has had plenty of time to implement the immigration and border policies he wants.  And the infrastructure is now there for the Border Patrol to implement Biden's vision.

The Demise of American Citizenship.  American citizenship and its one-of-a-kind written contract with the central government, the Constitution with its Bill of Rights, is under relentless assault by the nation's governing establishment and teetering on the edge of meaninglessness.  No nation can maintain its status as a nation without secure and identifiable borders.  Citizenship means nothing if untold millions of illegal immigrants openly defy the laws without consequence.  It is estimated that 22 million illegals resided in the United States as of 2018.  Responding to an explicit invitation from the Biden administration, another 2+ million have walked unchallenged across the border in the past 18 months.  These so-called undocumented immigrants are becoming legally indistinguishable from citizens as they openly reside in 500 sanctuary jurisdictions, receive welfare, education and medical care, are granted drivers licenses, and given tuition breaks at public universities as they, not legal immigrants or American citizens, are exempt from federal immigration, health and travel laws.

Over 500,000 immigrant 'gotaways' at US border may be roaming the country: report.  More than 500,000 known "gotaway" immigrants have crossed the border into the US but evaded capture since the start of FY 2022, according to a new report.  Multiple senior Department of Homeland Security sources confirmed the number to Fox News on Monday, revealing that there has been an average of more than 55,000 known "gotaways" per month.  "Gotaways" is a commonly used term for illegal immigrants who have been spotted crossing the border by agents or on camera but were not caught or processed by officials.

Amtrak, or boxcars?
Email from FEMA shows illegal immigrants bused to D.C. from Texas will be put on trains to Florida.  According to a report from The Epoch Times, a newly surfaced email shows that an official with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) stated that the illegal immigrants arriving on buses from Texas would be "put on a train" to Florida if they did not have family to pick them up.  The Oversight Project, an investigative unit of The Heritage Foundation, obtained the email from the federal government via a Freedom of Information Act request.  The email was in regards to the governments response to Texas Governor Greg Abbott's initiative to bus illegal immigrants apprehended at the nation's southern boarder to the nation's capital.

Why would 500,000 illegals choose not to turn themselves into Joe Biden's catch-and-release Border Patrol?  A few days ago, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, speaking to the global elites at some summit in Aspen, surreally declared that the U.S. border "is secure."  It was garbage, much as everything else he says, given that more than 3 million illegal aliens with zero vetting have crossed into the U.S. on Joe Biden's watch[,] just as Rep. Andy Biggs pointed out in his excellent op-ed for Townhall [elsew]here.  Millions of illegal border crossers, with a record 270,000 apprehended in just the last month, is nothing to brag about, and yet that was exactly what Mayorkas was doing, according to former ICE acting director Tom Homan.  Fox News Digital asked Border Patrol agents on the ground what they thought of the Mayorkas declaration — and got this:  "Hundreds of thousands crossing every month is not the definition of secure," one agent said.  "They are liars and anyone who believes them are fools."

Supreme Court Blocks Biden Admin Policy Narrowing Detainment, Deportation of Illegal Aliens.  The U.S. Supreme Court gave Texas and Louisiana a temporary legal victory in the border states' attempt to strike down a September 2021 Biden administration immigration guideline.  The Supreme Court, in a ruling without explanation on Thursday, allowed a federal judge in Texas to block the Biden Administration's immigration guideline that, according to the border states' prosecutors, limits the ability of border agents to detain and deport illegal aliens.  The ruling is a political setback for the Biden administration as it tries to juggle an unprecedented surge in illegal immigration, overburdened Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and an agenda to replace the Trump administration's more stringent border policy amid bipartisan criticism.

Supreme Court won't allow Biden immigration policy to move forward.  The Supreme Court rejected a policy by the Biden administration to prioritize the deportation of illegal immigrants who pose a threat to national security or public safety.  In a 5-4 decision, the court's order freezes the policy for now, but justices said it would hear arguments on the case, likely in late November.  Conservative Justice Amy Coney Barrett sided with the three liberal judges who would have allowed Biden to initiate the directive.  The decision comes after the administration's emergency request to the court following differing determinations from federal appeals courts.  The case stems from a September order from Homeland Security that stopped deportation unless the person committed acts of terrorism, espionage or serious criminal conduct that threatens public safety.

Uvalde and the Collateral Damage of Loose Borders.  Authorities are still analyzing the conditions that led to the nightmarish school shooting at Robb Elementary in Uvalde, Texas, on May 24.  Like many similar incidents, there are a multitude of factors: the school's safety procedures, law enforcement response to the incident, and the failure to recognize warning signs telegraphed by the shooter, among others.  But now, in a preliminary report on the incident, the Texas State House of Representatives has identified another, previously unreported factor.  Since they have become ground zero in the Biden Administration's immigration disaster, Texas border towns have seen increasing numbers of "bailouts."  This refers to incidents where law enforcement attempts to pull over vehicles suspected of human smuggling.  The drivers will refuse to stop and speed away.  The result is often a vehicle crash where driver and passengers "bail out" of the vehicle and flee to avoid arrest.

'Look, the border is secure': Alejandro Mayorkas makes stunning claim with more than 200,000 migrants passing every month for three months.  The Biden administration continues to assure that the southern border is 'secure' despite record-setting numbers of illegal crossings and proliferation of the crisis over the last few months.  'Look, the border is secure,' Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Matorkas insisted during remarks at the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado on Tuesday [7/19/2022].  But he added that the administration is still 'working to make the border more secure.'

Over 100 immigrants found in Texas stash houses before they could be smuggled.  US Border Patrol agents rescued more than 100 illegal immigrants from three squalid stash houses in a 24-hour period in El Paso, Texas, this week, officials said Thursday [7/21/2022].  Dozen of people were seen crammed into disgusting rooms in dirty homes and motel rooms, according to pics of the 103 immigrants released by Border Patrol.  The find comes just weeks after the deaths of 53 immigrants in San Antonio in the back of a sweltering tractor-trailer — and border officials believe a similar tragedy was narrowly averted as the migrants were likely to be soon shipped off in trucks.

The Left Should Be Happy with Biden.  The Left should be ecstatic that Joe Biden has given them everything they wanted. [...] The hard American Left always wanted unlimited illegal immigration.  Biden agreed and destroyed the southern border as we knew it.  The result is that in less than two years, nearly 3 million illegal aliens have surged into the United States.  Nearly all of them arrived unvaccinated, untested, and unaudited at a time of a COVID pandemic.  Biden worries little that record numbers of Americans are dying from drugs that now pour across the border.  Cartels became richer and more powerful than ever under his watch, while child traffickers were freed from worries.  Biden did more than any prior Democrat to ensure massive illegal immigration as part of the leftist dream of flipping red states blue by changing the demography.

DHS Lost Track Of Nearly One-Third Of The Illegal Immigrants It Released Into The US: Report.  U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) failed to record the domestic addresses of nearly one third of illegal migrants released into the country, according to a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Inspector General report obtained by The Washington Free Beacon.  Between March and June 2021, when the migrants crossed, CBP encountered over 720,000 migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border, according to the Beacon.  Between March and September 2021, nearly 30% of those released "did not comply with release terms," the outlet reported.

Supreme Court blocks Biden from implementing immigration policy but will hear case.  The federal government doesn't have the resources to detain and deport every immigrant in the country illegally.  Like previous administrations, the Biden administration sought to focus immigration enforcement on people it believes pose a threat to national security or public safety or who are recent border crossers.  The Trump administration, by contrast, sought to remove a wider category of immigrants without such distinctions.  A federal district court in Texas sided with the states and halted the policy's enforcement.  A three-judge panel of the New Orleans-based U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit — all three of whom were nominated by GOP presidents — declined to put the district court's ruling on hold while the administration contemplated appeal.  The Biden administration filed its emergency request in July asking the Supreme Court to review the 5th Circuit's decision.

As Border Crossings Surge, [the] Biden Admin [is] Hiding Data on Illegal Alien Deaths.  Border apprehensions recently topped 1.7 million, with three months of the fiscal year remaining.  At the same time, the Biden administration has broken a long-standing policy of publicly releasing the number of illegal immigrants who die while crossing into the United States, or soon after.  The Rio Grande Valley in Texas and the Tucson Sector in Arizona have traditionally been the most deadly border sectors, as the river and the summer heat claim the most lives, and smugglers leave injured and sick aliens to die.  Customs and Border Protection (CBP) published on its website the number of migrant deaths along the southern border from fiscal 1998 to fiscal 2020, but stopped once the Biden administration took over the agency.  Over the course of three months, The Epoch Times made multiple requests to CBP for the missing data from fiscal years 2021 and 2022 to date.  But CBP, to date, has declined to provide the information.

DC is only 'experiencing a fraction of the disaster created by Biden's reckless border policies': Texas Gov. Greg Abbott.  Governor Greg Abbott's office claims that Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser is only seeing a 'fraction of the disaster' at the southern border after she complained that her city's homeless shelters are filling up with migrants bused from Texas and Arizona.  'Border communities are overrun and overwhelmed, and Governor Abbott launched the border bus mission back in April to help provide support to these communities pleading for help where the Biden Administration is dumping migrants,' Abbott spokeswoman Renae Eze told in a statement.  She added: 'With our nation's capital now experiencing a fraction of the disaster created by President Biden's reckless open border policies that our state faces every single day, maybe he'll finally do his job and secure the border.'

Border crisis hits NYC: Adams calls on Biden as shelters overrun with migrants.  New York City's homeless shelters are being overrun with asylum-seeking migrants as the immigration crisis at the southern border worsens — with nearly 3,000 arriving in recent weeks, Mayor Eric Adams warned Monday [7/18/2022].  Adams called on President Biden to send "additional federal resources immediately" so the city can handle the overflow.  "If we do not get these urgently needed resources, we may struggle to provide the proper level of support our clients deserve, while also facing challenges as we serve both a rapidly growing shelter population and new clients who are seeking asylum," Adams said in a prepared statement.  Adams said the illegal immigrants included families "arriving on buses sent by the Texas and Arizona governments" but in other cases, he said, "it appears that individuals are being sent by the federal government."

Analysis: Biden on Pace to Bring 2.1 Million Illegal Aliens to [the] U.S. Border in 2022.  President Joe Biden is currently on pace to bring about 2.1 million illegal aliens to the United States-Mexico border by the end of the year.  Steve Kopits with the Princeton Policy Advisors projects that in fiscal year 2022, Biden will entice about 2.1 million illegal aliens to the southern border — an annual record for illegal immigration that surpasses Biden's record-setting levels for 2021.  "Overall, the situation at the border is largely unchanged.  The Open Borders policy remains in place," Kopits wrote in an analysis.

Cuellar: 'Only 30%' of Border Patrol Agents Are on Border in Some Parts as More Drugs and People Come in.  On Friday's [7/15/2022] broadcast of the Fox News Channel's "America's Newsroom," Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) said that "in the southern part of the area from Laredo down to the valley," only 30% of Border Patrol agents are actually on the border because the rest are doing processing and administrative work, and that at a time when "we have larger amounts of drugs coming in, more people coming in, we have a lesser number of Border Patrol agents doing their work."

Greg Abbott's 'publicity stunt' busing illegals from Texas to Washington, D.C. ... is working.  With the border surge hitting historic highs, and Texas taking the brunt of Joe Biden's open borders, the Lone Star state's governor, Greg Abbott, announced a plan to bus illegal border crossers on a voluntary basis to Washington, D.C. He said it was to get Washington's attention.  Washington's swamp denizens in the press and halls of power, calling it a publicity stunt.  What we are seeing now is that the much-derided "stunt" is working. [...] Illegal border crossers are being offered free bus rides from Texas to Washington and a lot of them are taking the governor up on it, heading for the free stuff there after paying $7,000 to cartel human smugglers for the crossing.  Cartels make money, cities and states lose money, and migrants get to stay in America for free.  Bottom line here is that her city's shelters are being flooded with illegals, the cost is has got to be enormous, the shelters can't keep up, and now [Mayor Muriel Bowser is] whining.

Biden Halts Prosecutions for Most Illegal Border Crossings.  The Biden administration dramatically reduced migrant prosecutions by nearly 80 percent in the 2021 fiscal year, even as illegal crossings skyrocketed.  Just 2,896 migrants apprehended on the southwest border were transferred into U.S. Marshals Service custody in the 2021 fiscal year, according to an internal Department of Homeland Security memo obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.  In the 2020 fiscal year, 13,213 migrants were transferred to federal authorities for prosecution.  The precipitous drop in migrant prosecutions illustrates President Joe Biden's break from prior administrations' policies toward illegal immigration.

DC Democrats beg for help as border states bus migrants to Biden's backyard.  More than 150 buses traveling from Arizona and Texas have transported nearly 6,000 migrants to the nation's capital over the past three months, and Democrats in Washington are complaining that they cannot accommodate the mass releases.  The operation has collectively cost both border states millions of taxpayer dollars, including $6.8 million in Texas to date.  But Republican Gov. Greg Abbott, who initiated the operation in mid-April, said the move is having the desired results — getting Washington politicians a little taste of how communities have been inundated under President Joe Biden.  "Governor Abbott launched Texas's border bus mission back in April to bring President Biden's border crisis to his backyard in Washington, D.C., and to help Texas border communities that are being overrun as the federal government dumps migrants in their towns," Abbott spokeswoman Renae Eze said in a statement to the Washington Examiner.

DC homeless shelters are filling up with migrants from Arizona and Texas Mayor Muriel Bowser claims.  Washington, D.C.'s homeless shelters are filling up because Texas Governor Greg Abbott is sending busloads of migrants from his state to the nation's capital, Mayor Muriel Bowser claimed Sunday morning.  The D.C. mayor is requesting that Abbott stop preventing migrants from getting to their final destinations.  Arizona's Governor Doug Ducey followed Abbott's lead earlier this summer as they both started sending migrants from their respective states to D.C. to take some of the load off of the migration crisis hitting border states.

Whose fault is it, Muriel?  You've only seen a few of them, Muriel.  Plenty more are coming, Muriel.
Dem Mayor Muriel Bowser Whines About Illegal Aliens Sent by TX and AZ Overwhelming D.C..  Texas and Arizona have been among the states inundated by the flood of illegal aliens entering through our southern border.  Yet, the Biden Administration doesn't seem to give a darn about how that is affecting and harming the states involved.  Their resources have been overwhelmed.  So, the two states had a great idea.  Let's ship the people who entered illegally and who are awaiting their asylum claims to Washington, D.C., so that the people in Washington finally get how we are being overwhelmed.  They've been shipping hundreds of people in dozens of separate bus trips since April.

Cruz: First Act of GOP-led Congress Should Be Mayorkas Impeachment — 'The Body Bags Are Piling Up'.  Friday on FNC's "Hannity," Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) pledged action against the Biden administration for how it has handled the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border.  The Texas Republican laid out many of the problems with President Joe Biden's border and immigration policy.  He also said the impeachment of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas should be a priority should Republicans win back Congress.

Ted Cruz reveals why illegals coming to the border wear colored wristbands.  Ted Cruz was at the border last night and revealed why illegals who are coming to the border are wearing different colored wristbands.  [Video clip]  In short, the colored wristbands represent their debt to the cartels which they are forced to pay back, either by working for the cartel if you are a male or being forced into sex slavery if you are female.  Cruz says this happens in every city in America.

Dozens of migrants said to be from Texas arrive on bus at Union Station in DC.  Migrants sent from Texas are still arriving in D.C. months after the state's governor followed through on a promise to send those who crossed U.S. border illegally to the nation's capital.  Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) first announced on April 6 that the state would send people crossing the U.S. border from Mexico to the steps of the U.S. Capitol.  Abbott's announcement came as he voiced opposition to President Joe Biden lifting Title 42, the public health policy the Trump administration started during the COVID-19 pandemic.  It allows the government to quickly expel migrants and asylum seekers who come to the U.S. from countries where an infectious disease — like COVID-19 — is present.

Left-Wing Nonprofit Scores $171.7 Million [or greater] Government Contract To Help Illegal Immigrants Avoid Authorities.  A liberal non-profit group has been given a taxpayer-funded government contract worth at least $171.7 million — which could potentially reach just under $1 billion — for assisting illegal immigrant minors in avoiding capture or incarceration by U.S. Border Patrol and state officials.  The Department of the Interior was the awarding agency and "The Vera Institute of Justice," based out of New York — which supports the "defund the police" movement and has lax views on immigration enforcement — was the beneficiary.  Health and Human Services (HHS) had initially funded the contract back in March, Fox News Digital discovered, to "provide legal assistance to unaccompanied minors, according to a federal database."

Biden Brags About Importing 'Record' Foreign Workers to Compete Against Americans for Jobs.  President Joe Biden is bragging about the "record" number of foreign visa workers his administration has brought to the United States to compete for working and middle class jobs against unemployed Americans.  During a press conference with Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO), Biden bragged that his Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has created a steady flow to the U.S. of foreign workers on agricultural H-2A and nonagricultural H-2B visas.

Biden's Twin Dumpster Fires:  Raging Inflation and Open Borders.  Faced with several serious domestic and foreign policy problems all at once, the Biden administration's reaction has been so catastrophically incoherent, it's hard to know whether to blame leftist ideology or just plain incompetence.  Inflation hits all of us right now. [...] Meanwhile, the effects of rampant illegal immigration are felt insidiously by most of us in crowded schools, the flow of illegal drugs, more expensive health care, and numerous other social costs, but they are hitting especially fast and hard in border communities.  After 17 months of record illegal immigration, the leaders of several Texas border counties have reached their limit in responding to the catastrophe.  They have just declared that they are under invasion, in an effort to get Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to enforce immigration law and protect them from an unprecedented, unchecked flood of illegal entrants — more than 1.5 million apprehended at the border just since October.

Biden's DHS Extends 'Temporary' Amnesty for 343K Venezuelans in U.S..  President Joe Biden's Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is extending temporary amnesty status for hundreds of thousands of Venezuelans living in the United States who would otherwise be eligible for deportation.  On Monday [7/11/2022], DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced that the Biden administration will extend Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for 18 more months to about 343,000 Venezuelans living in the United States.  The move comes after former President Trump and then current President Biden rewarded Venezuelans with TPS in January 2021 and March 2021 respectively.  Trump had initially started TPS for about 94,000 Venezuelans and Biden later expanded the program to include an additional quarter of a million Venezuelans.

Illegals Stream Across the Border as DHS Projects Record Numbers.  The border crisis has remained in full swing as nearly 10,000 migrants streamed across the Texas boundary in the past week, while the Department of Homeland Security has projected that as many as 161,000 of these migrants will be unaccompanied minors.  In the past six days, the Texas border town of Eagle Pass has seen a swarm of humanity descend upon them, as nearly 10,000 migrants have been apprehended.  The town, which was once a more quiet spot on the border, has become the epicenter for the current crisis.  According to Breitbart News, these Eagle Pass numbers dwarf the amount of interactions in the Rio Grande Valley Border Sector.  This is over the same six-day period, ending July 9.

10K Migrants Cross into Texas Border Town in Six Days.  One Texas border town now leads the nation in migrant crossings and apprehensions.  Nearly 10,000 migrants illegally crossed the border into Eagle Pass, Texas, during the past six days, according to a source operating under the umbrella of U.S Customs and Border Protection.  Once a city with fewer migrant apprehensions than most other southwest border cities, Eagle Pass is now ground zero for the Biden administration's continuing border crisis.  The source says migrant apprehensions in the city numbered nearly 10,000 over a six-day period ending on July 9 making it the leading crossing point in the nation for migrants.

Meet The Man Orchestrating The Endless Torrent Of Migrant Caravans Heading Toward The Border.  The leader of recent migrant caravans has helped bring thousands of people through Mexico on a mission he says is driven by God, he told the Daily Caller News Foundation.  Luis Rey Garcia Villagran told the DCNF that he's directly helped 40,000 migrants cross into the United States through caravans he's led since September 2021, believing it's his duty to God.  He's done so through the work of his organization, the Center for Human Dignity. [...] Villagran's latest group started to gain attention when thousands of migrants reached Southern Mexico in early June.  Some members of the caravan were granted work visas by the Mexican government, while others trekked northward with many expected to arrive in Texas, according to The Washington Examiner.

Biden Admin Flies Illegal Alien Minors out of Texas for Abortions.  Per the far-left Reuters, the pure evil that is the Biden Administration has "been flying or driving minors from Texas shelters to other states for abortions." [...] Now that the moral and legal atrocity known as Roe v. Wade has finally been overturned, the corporate media have and will continue to look for stories that show how awful the not-killing-of-innocent-babies is.  So Reuters came up with this beauty about the terrible plight of illegal aliens who will now have trouble accessing a clinic that will kill their innocent baby.  Why?  Because Texas has outlawed abortion, and to try and turn the Lone Star state blue, Biden has opened the border in Texas.  So most illegals end up in Texas, where they can't get an abortion.

Biden Administration Cannot Ignore Federal Law, Must Remove Illegal Alien Criminals:  Court.  President Joe Biden's administration cannot ignore federal law that says authorities must arrest, detain, and remove illegal aliens convicted of certain crimes and/or aliens who are ordered deported, an appeals court has ruled.  Federal law says the attorney general "shall take into custody," "shall detain," and "shall remove" illegal aliens convicted of certain crimes and aliens who are ordered deported.  But the Biden administration has attempted to prevent the holding and removal of some illegal immigrants convicted of those crimes.  "The fact an individual is a removable noncitizen therefore should not alone be the basis of an enforcement action against them," Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, a Biden appointee, said in a memorandum in September 2021 outlining new guidance that narrowed immigration enforcement priorities.  Mayorkas also said that immigration agents should not "rely on the fact of conviction ... alone" when deciding to take action against an alien.

Greg Abbott directs Texas police and military to return illegal immigrants to border.  The Republican governor of Texas directed state military and police forces to arrest and transport back to the southern border any person suspected of illegally entering the United States from Mexico.  Gov. Greg Abbott, who is seeking a third term in November, authorized Texas National Guard soldiers and Texas Department of Public Safety officers on Thursday afternoon to take custody of illegal immigrants encountered between the ports of entry and "return those illegal immigrants to the border at a port of entry," his new executive order states.  The order suggests that Texas authorities will not enter Mexico.

Cuccinelli: No judge has ever declared invasion before in U.S. history.  U.S. judges declaring an invasion at the southern border hasn't occurred before until this week, Ken Cuccinelli, former U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services director and deputy secretary of Department of Homeland Security, said.  On Tuesday, four county judges in Texas declared an invasion citing Article 4, Section 7 of the Texas Constitution and Article 1, Section 10, Clause 3 of the U.S. Constitution.  They called on Texas Gov. Greg Abbott to "immediately prevent and/or remove all persons invading the sovereignty of Texas and that of the United States."  Illegal border crossings have surged since President Joe Biden took office and implemented policies that Texas officials and many other critics say directly caused the spike.  "We are taking unprecedented steps with the hope of encouraging Gov. Greg Abbott to acknowledge the existence of an invasion on our border with Mexico and take necessary actions to preserve and protect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Texas," Kinney County Judge Tully Shahan and Kinney County Attorney Brent Smith said.

Gov. Abbott Authorizes Texas National Guard To Apprehend Illegal Immigrants And Return Them To Border.  Governor Greg Abbott today issued an executive order authorizing and empowering the Texas National Guard and the Texas Department of Public Safety to apprehend illegal immigrants who illegally cross the border between ports of entry and return them to the border.  The Biden Administration's decision to end Title 42 expulsions and the Remain-in-Mexico policy has led to historic levels of illegal crossings, with 5,000 migrants being apprehended over the July 4th weekend, creating a border crisis that has overrun communities along the border and across Texas.  "While President Biden refuses to do his job and enforce the immigration laws enacted by Congress, the State of Texas is once again stepping up and taking unprecedented action to protect Americans and secure our southern border," said Governor Abbott.

Sanctuary State New Jersey Creates $60M 'Slush Fund' for Illegal Aliens.  [Scroll down]  Elected Republicans have called the plan a "slush fund" intended to transfer New Jersey taxpayer dollars to illegal aliens.  "The Democrats who control the legislature know that Gov. Murphy's program giving big cash payments to illegal immigrants is so unpopular with most New Jerseyans that they were afraid to fund it directly in the state budget," State Sen. Jim Holzapfel (R) said.  "Instead, they created a slush fund that Gov. Murphy controls that appears to have been designed specifically to continue making these ridiculous payments," Holzapfel continued.

GOP Lawmakers Demand Answers From Merrick Garland Over Removal of Trump-era Immigration Judges.  In a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland, 12 House Republicans are demanding to know why Trump-appointed immigration judges are being dismissed even as the border crisis rages.  "Your department is unfairly terminating Trump-appointed immigration judges amid a historic border crisis and rapidly growing immigration case backlog," wrote the lawmakers, led by Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ).  According to a recent report from The Washington Times, at least six Trump-era judges have been removed from their posts.  "It's an attempt to weaponize the courts along ideological lines," Matthew J. O'Brien, one of the ousted judges told the Times.  "It's court packing on steroids.  It's court packing by deletion and then addition, because they're getting rid of judges and they're replacing them with people who meet their ideological framework."

This goes on every month, but somehow the official number of illegal aliens in the U.S. remains constant at 11.3 million.
192K Migrants Apprehended Crossing SW Border in June.  Border Patrol agents apprehended nearly 192,000 migrants who illegally crossed from Mexico in June, according to government records previewed by Breitbart Texas.  Since March 1, agents apprehended more than 182,000 migrants in the nine southwest border sectors.  According to a source operating under the umbrella of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Border Patrol agents apprehended just under 192,000 migrants who illegally crossed the border between ports of entry in June.  The source told Breitbart Texas that Border Patrol agents are exhausted and overwhelmed while attempting to keep up with the volume of illegal crossings.

Multiple Texas Counties Issue 'Declarations of an Invasion' in Response to Escalating Border Crisis.  While Texans are mighty proud of their "Don't mess with Texas" declaration, Joe Biden has been mightily messing with Texas since his first day in office.  The Biden Border Crisis has now escalated to the point that judges in multiple Texas counties are issuing declarations of an invasion, effective on Tuesday [7/5/2022], in response to unprecedented challenges from the escalating surge of illegal aliens into the Lone Star State.  Leading the effort, as reported by The Center Square, is Kinney County Judge Tully Shahan, the first Texas county judge to issue a disaster declaration in 2021 over the worsening impact of Biden's illegal alien invasion, prompting other county judges to issue similar declarations.  In addition to Shahan's efforts, Kinney County attorney Brent Smith has asked Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Attorney General Ken Paxton to take steps to act under Article 1 of the Texas Constitution.

DHS erases barrier to legal status for some illegal immigrants.  Making it back into the U.S. after being ousted is "irrelevant" to an illegal immigrant's eligibility to apply for a new legal status, the Homeland Security Department's citizenship agency says in a new policy.  In the past, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services would have denied the application under a law that required onetime illegal immigrants to wait outside the country for up to 10 years before they would be eligible to apply to come back legally.  Experts said the policy now says the law doesn't require a wait elsewhere as long as the immigrant doesn't pop up on Homeland Security's radar during the waiting period.

Biden's Immigration Policies Are Killing People.  The tragic suffocation deaths of 53 illegal border-crossers in a trailer truck in Texas are a horrific reminder that the Biden administration's open-border immigration policies continue to act as an irresistible magnet, pulling hundreds of thousands of migrants from countries around the world to risk life and limb in a dangerous journey to reach our porous southern frontier.  The supply of would-be migrants is inexhaustible: people who put themselves and family members, sometimes even unaccompanied children, in the hands of criminal smugglers in order to claw their way into the developed world.  While they may be desperate, these illegal migrants still calculate their decision to travel based on the message they receive from the authorities in the destination country.  And that message from the Biden administration is wholly irresponsible.  Even in acknowledging the mass suffocation deaths, DHS Secretary Mayorkas, one of the chief architects of Biden's destructive immigration policies, still refuses to use his megaphone to tell people not to come because they will be turned back.

U.N. Says Joe Biden's Border Is 'Deadliest Land Crossing in the World'.  President Joe Biden's border with Mexico is the deadliest land crossing in the world, according to a United Nations group, the International Organization for Migration.  "More than 1,238 lives have been lost during migration in the [north, central and south] Americas in 2021, among them at least 51 children," said the group's July 1 report.

Texas Sheriff:  Open Border Is Transforming America to Marxist State.  Sheriffs in Texas are experiencing the impact of the border crisis in their counties every day — whether it's armed cartel operatives smuggling illegal immigrants, vehicle pursuits resulting in crashes and deaths, or drug overdose deaths from fentanyl brought across the southern border.  In Goliad, Sheriff Roy Boyd sits 200 miles from the Texas-Mexico border, between McAllen and Houston — a major transport corridor of illegal immigrants and illicit goods.  As a 29-year law enforcement veteran in the region, Boyd said he's never seen a border crisis so bad or border-related crime so egregious.

DHS to Enforce 'Remain in Mexico' Policy for Several More Weeks, Warn Migrants Not to Come:  Mayorkas.  Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said on July 3 that his department will continue to warn migrants to not show up at the U.S.-Mexico border, as the current "Remain in Mexico" policy isn't going away for "several weeks."  Appearing on CBS's "Face the Nation," Mayorkas was asked whether the border enforcement agencies have the manpower and resources needed to handle "thousands of people who departed on Friday and are moving toward the U.S. border." He responded by blaming "exploitative smugglers" who use "false information" to motivate migrants to illegally cross the border.  "We have said repeatedly and we continue to warn people not to take the dangerous journey," Mayorkas told CBS's Margaret Brennan, noting that his department is working with "our partners to the south" to "break up very often" migrant caravans.  "We continue to enforce immigration law, as is our legal responsibility.

Who Are the Real Insurrectionists?  [Scroll down]  There is no border.  For two years, Joe Biden, again in true revolutionary fashion, has simply abrogated federal immigration law by fiat.  In less than two years, he has welcomed 3 million illegal aliens without audit — or COVID-19 tests or vaccinations — during a pandemic in which unvaccinated federal employees and military personnel faced dismissal.  Biden had taken an oath of office to faithfully execute the laws of the United States, but then shortly thereafter destroyed immigration laws as we knew them.  No prior president has simply rendered an entire corpus of law null and void.

1,700 Migrants [were] Arrested in Texas Border Town in One Day.  Del Rio Sector Border Patrol agents apprehended 1,772 migrants after they crossed the Rio Grande in a single day in Eagle Pass.  The steady stream of migrants apprehended after crossing the river included one group numbering more than 500. On Thursday, the number of apprehensions exceeded any other single day total for the city according to the source.  A source operating under the umbrella of U.S. Customs and Border Protection told Breitbart Texas that Del Rio Sector agents lead the nation of late in apprehensions.  The source said the increase in apprehensions is forcing the agency to deal with constant overcrowding at processing facilities.  More than 2,000 migrants were arrested on Thursday throughout the Del Rio Sector — most chose to enter the United States in Eagle Pass.

Supreme Court Unwisely Lets Biden End Program Making Illegal Aliens Remain in Mexico.  The Remain in Mexico program (formally known as the Migration Protection Protocols) was implemented by the Trump administration in early 2019 to stop the caravans of illegal aliens who were coming to our border, claiming a fear of returning to their home country, and getting released into the U.S., often never to be seen again.  The Trump administration was the first to use the 1996 congressional authority that permits the Department of Homeland Security to return non-Mexican aliens arriving by land from Mexico to Mexico while their claims for asylum or eligibility to be in the U.S. were determined.  The program worked.  The caravans stopped, and illegal alien encounters declined when human smugglers and would-be illegal aliens learned that saying they were entitled to asylum was no longer the golden ticket into the U.S.  This was particularly important because the overwhelming majority of such claims have proven to be fraudulent.

Smuggling suspect in mass migrant deaths was already on ICE's radar.  The man accused of orchestrating the smuggling journey that cost 53 migrants their lives was already under "active investigation" by ICE agents in Texas, according to court documents.  Christian Martinez was tied to the smuggling by text messages found on the phone of Homero Zamorano Jr., who was found hiding at the spot where the truck and its dead bodies were abandoned, and whom authorities have identified as the driver.  After realizing Mr. Martinez was already on their radar, ICE Homeland Security Investigations agents in Texas worked with police in his hometown of Palestine, Texas, to identify a confidential informant who knows him.

Supreme Court Ends 'Remain in Mexico' Policy.  "Remain in Mexico" (officially termed the Migrant Protection Protocols) is an immigration policy created in response to the surge of immigrants coming across the southern border from Mexico.  Originally implemented in January 2019 under the administration of President Donald Trump, it required that non-Mexican migrants seeking asylum in the U.S. remain in Mexico until their U.S. immigration court date.  According to federal immigration law, the federal government is supposed to detain immigrants while they await the hearing of their case.  However, Congress has never allocated enough money to detain the rising number of illegal migrants who need to be detained.  Under "Remain in Mexico," the U.S. government may return migrants to Mexico if there is no room in the detention centers.  However, President Joe Biden wishes to release the migrants into the United States and simply hope they show up for their court dates.

Fed-up Texas sheriff drives 4 migrants back to border to deport them.  A Texas sheriff personally drove four illegal immigrants he'd apprehended back to the US-Mexico border to deport them, insisting he's been left with no choice given the current border crisis.  Kinney County Sheriff Brad Coe told the Epoch Times the migrants were discovered after a suspected smuggling vehicle his deputies were pursuing crashed on Wednesday morning.  Five illegal immigrants were found inside the vehicle, including a woman who had to be taken to hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.  The sheriff said Border Patrol agents had told him they could only apprehend the four other migrants if they'd been medically assessed at a hospital first.

Supreme Court allows Biden to end Trump-era 'Remain in Mexico' policy.  The Supreme Court handed President Joe Biden a victory Thursday [6/30/2022], ruling that he can shut down a Trump administration program designed to restrict immigration at the southern border.  The court said in a 5-4 ruling that the Biden administration acted properly in seeking to end the "Remain in Mexico" policy, formally known as the Migrant Protection Protocols.  It required people seeking asylum at the southern border, mainly from Central America, to wait in Mexico while their claims were decided.

Two Americans face capital charges in Texas migrant deaths case.  Federal prosecutors announced capital smuggling charges Wednesday against two men they say were involved with the truck found on the side of a San Antonio road with the bodies of dozens of dead illegal immigrants packed inside.  Authorities have identified Homero Zamorano Jr., an American citizen, as the driver of the truck, and have also connected Christian Martinez to the smuggling attempt.  Mr. Zamorano, 45, faces a charge of smuggling resulting in death, which carries a possible death sentence.  Mr. Martinez, 28, was charged with conspiracy to smuggle aliens resulting in death, which prosecutors said also carries a potential death sentence.  Police found 48 dead bodies when they reached the truck, and five more people have died since being taken to the hospital, for a current death toll of 53.  Eleven others were still hospitalized as of Wednesday.

Of course Biden's policies are to blame for this migrant tragedy.  "These deaths are on Biden.  They are a result of his deadly open border policies."  That's what Texas Gov. Greg Abbott tweeted Monday [6/27/2022] upon learning of a truck full of dead illegal immigrants being smuggled through San Antonio.  Was he right?  There's certainly plenty of blame to go around.  The smugglers bear the most direct responsibility for the tragedy.  They fleece the migrants (derided as "chickens"), shoot competitors, rape little girls — truly the scum of the earth.  The corrupt and dysfunctional leadership of the countries these people are fleeing also bear responsibility, for making their countries the kinds of places people want to flee from.  The illegal immigrants themselves are adults, of course, and put children at risk by hiring criminals.  But there's no getting around the fact that President Joe Biden shoulders a big part of the blame.  Regardless of US policy, some foreigners are going to take foolish, often deadly, risks to come to America.  But when Biden issued what smugglers call "La Invitación" to prospective illegal immigrants worldwide, what did he think was going to happen?

The wages of Biden's open border: 46 found dead in a San Antonio truck.  [Scroll down]  It doesn't matter if they were illegal border crossers at this point, they were human beings and nobody deserves to die a cruel suffocating death like that — as some kind of misplaced or forgotten cargo, with some human smuggler stepping away to save himself for unknown reasons, perhaps fear of arrest or not being paid or something else.  The size of the death count is comparable to that of a cartel massacre of migrants who didn't pay the crossing fees that happened in the north of Mexico years ago, after a mass grave was discovered.  Well, now the mass graves are happening here in the states, big ones, consistent with huge human smuggling syndicates and the cartel organized cash it takes to organize them.  Freelance border coyotes taking a family at a time across the Rio Grande can't pull off these kinds of operations such as what was found in the truck, which had to have been an experienced operation.  That means that someone out there enabled these illegal migrant organizations to get very, very big, both from extended "business," and from the cartel expectation that the truck would never be intercepted nor break down, or whatever it was that happened that led to the truck becoming an abandoned death chamber on a street in San Antonio.

250 Migrants Cross into Texas Border Town in One Hour.  More than 250 migrants in separate groups were witnessed crossing into the city [of Eagle Pass, Texas] in the span of an hour Monday night [6/27/2022].  The group that appears in the video numbered nearly 100 and was immediately preceded by a group of more than 150 a short distance away, according to Border Patrol agents.  As the large groups crossed at nightfall, authorities in San Antonio, worked to investigate the deaths of 50 migrants who perished after being smuggled in a sealed tractor trailer near the Interstate 35/Loop 410 interchange.  Speaking to reporters about the tragedy, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, flying aboard Air Force One, reiterated the Biden Administration's position concerning the situation at the southwest border.

Driver of Texas migrant truck was reportedly 'very high on meth'.  The driver of the sweltering tractor-trailer truck where at least 51 migrants were found dead in Texas was allegedly "very high on meth" when he was nabbed, authorities said.  Homero Zamorano, 45, was taken into custody in a nearby field after he allegedly abandoned the 18-wheeler with dozens of migrants stashed in the back in a desolate area in San Antonio on Monday.  "He was very high on meth when he was arrested nearby and had to be taken to the hospital," a law enforcement official told the San Antonio Express News.  Following the grim discovery of the bodies inside the truck Monday evening, investigators were able to trace the vehicle's registration to a San Antonio address that they placed under surveillance, authorities said.

47 Migrants Found Dead in Abandoned Trailer in Texas Smuggling Incident.  Police near San Antonio report that 46 migrants are dead and at least 16 others were transported to local hospitals after being locked inside a tractor-trailer.  Officials found the tractor-trailer on the southwest side of San Antonio on a back road near Interstate 35. Police say the driver may have been involved in a human smuggling incident.  A senior law enforcement source on the scene told Breitbart Texas that 46 migrants were declared dead on the scene or at area hospitals and at least 16 others were taken to area hospitals.  A source on the scene says they have a person of interest in custody.  That person was also reportedly transported to an area hospital.  At least 60 migrants were packed inside the trailer.

Biden Is Nowhere To Be Found After Unleashing Total Chaos At The Southern Border.  I was at the border just this week.  If President Joe Biden cared, he'd be there too.  His Department of Homeland Security (DHS) quietly released its latest batch of catastrophic border numbers.  More than 239,000 illegal immigrants were apprehended in May — the highest monthly total in DHS history.  Taking a step back, this means a shocking 3.5 million illegal immigrants have now crossed into the U.S. since Biden took office.  This is not normal, nor is it accidental.  It is a cataclysmic destruction of our sovereign borders at the expense of the American people.  Biden and his administration are to blame.  In his first 100 days, Biden issued countless executive actions, including halting construction of the border wall and ending Trump's successful "Remain in Mexico" policy under the banner of "compassion."  It was not Americans thanking him — but the illegal immigrants trying to cross over.

Biden sneaking amnesty through for a million illegal border crossers.  Who says crime doesn't pay?  When you can cross the border illegally, and not only be allowed to stay here, collect big benefits, and actually be allowed to apply for citizenship as a reward for your lawbreaking, why wouldn't you come without papers instead of come the legal way?  You'd be a fool not to.  Applying legally and waiting years for entry at great personal expense with no adjacent benefits is a fool's errand, given the Biden administration's current policies.  That's the shocking reality revealed in a report from the Washington Examiner showing that the Biden administration is now .... ever so quietly ... dropping charges against tens of thousands of unvetted illegal border crossers and visa overstayers, leaving them with clean records and incredibly, the "right" to apply for green cards and U.S. citizenship.  If the current pace of that continues, at least a million are going to be effectively amnestied by 2024, the Examiner reports.

Finding our Way Through a Wilderness of Mirrors.  We are passing through a time when the elite of our society call right, wrong and wrong, right, and when evil is called good and good is called evil.  Before we consider what can be done, let's take a walk through the current upside-down priorities of the various agencies of our government:  The Biden administration's open border policy with Mexico, which has facilitated the entry of a record number of unvetted immigrants and criminal elements has added to the already extreme crime epidemic that has swept across cities in America — most all of which are suffering from exasperated and thinly-stretched police forces.

Multiple Large Migrant Groups Apprehended in South Texas Border Sector.  Rio Grande Valley Sector Border Patrol agents encountered multiple large migrant groups illegally crossing the border from Mexico into Texas.  The groups totaled more than 500 migrants including 146 unaccompanied migrant children.  During a 48-hour period ending on June 16, Rio Grande Valley Sector agents encountered 512 migrants in three large-group crossings, according to information obtained from Border Patrol officials.  The groups included migrants from Cuba, Central America, and South America.

The mainstream media's lies on secret migrant flights.  For a classic example of shoddy, dishonest journalism that serves as pure propaganda for the Biden administration, look no further than NPR's attempt to discredit our reporting on the secret flights ferrying illegal migrants from the southern border to unsuspecting communities around the country.  NPR did not mention The Post in Monday's story, only its permanent bugbear Fox News and Tucker Carlson who admirably followed up, but the journalism it pooh-poohs is ours.  "Republicans and right-wing media ... accuse the Biden administration of organizing secret migrant flights ... but NPR's Joel Rose reports that rhetoric is often at odds with the facts."  Really?  A single source was interviewed, a migrant activist.  NPR assured listeners there's nothing unusual about the surge in illegal migration, and all that's happening with these late-night charter flights is kids are being reunited with their parents, which supposedly was routine under the Trump administration.

Five Reasons to Impeach Joe Biden.  [#2] Biden's violation of U.S. immigration law constitutes treason.  Biden has abused his office by violating the laws he has sworn to defend.  He has undermined national security by opening the southern border to millions of unvetted, low-skilled, uneducated, third-world economic migrants, many of whom are known terrorists, criminals, and people infected with COVID.  The open border policy "is an inside attack on our democracy," said former Trump policy adviser Stephen Miller.  "The president is working systematically to allow people to invade our country against our laws to consume public benefits, to take American jobs, and to threaten public safety."  Adding insult to injury, Biden is shipping hordes of illegals to secret destinations without informing the American public.  The Pentagon has confirmed that it is using Laughlin Air Force Base in Texas to fly illegal immigrants to undisclosed parts of the country.  We don't know where they are going or what happens to them when they get there.

DHS released nearly 100K illegal aliens in just one month:  Tip of the invasion iceberg.  In one respect, when DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas told Rep. Chip Roy at a recent House Judiciary Committee hearing that the DHS has operational control over the border, he wasn't lying.  His department is now releasing close to 100,000 illegal aliens per month into the interior of the country.  Thus, this is actually a controlled and purposeful mass migration, although there are many more gotaways that funnel through our border during the chaos.  Either way, our country can't last with such a volume of invaders until there is a new president in 2025.  Arizona and Texas, buttressed by the other red states, must take action now.  Fox News' Bill Melugin is reporting that the DHS acknowledged in a recent court document that CBP and ICE released or paroled 95,318 illegal aliens just in the month of May.  They are all coming to a city near you.  And this has been going on for a year and a half and will likely continue for another two and a half years if Texas and Arizona Republicans don't secure their own border.

Greg Abbott has spent $2.9 million in taxpayer funds sending 1,700 illegal immigrants in buses to Washington DC.  Texas taxpayers are paying the price for Governor Greg Abbott's plan to bus migrants who crossed into the U.S. illegally to Washington, D.C.  As of June 7, $2.9 million in taxpayer funds have sent only 1,778 immigrants to the nation's capital, according to Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) documents — and the figure is expected to rise as more buses have already been deployed and Abbott shows no signs of slowing the stunt.  More than $1 million of the total cost has gone toward security alone, while taxpayers are also footing the bill for drivers and GPS tracking, among other things.

The Editor says...
That's $1,631 per capita.  Wouldn't it be cheaper to send them back across the border?

Biden DHS Instructs Border Patrol Agents to Not Apprehend Migrants near Walls, Rio Grande.  A new Border Patrol enforcement policy has been disseminated to agents warning them not to enforce immigration laws or attempt to arrest migrants near waterways, walls, canals, or other barriers.  According to a CBP source, the policy most likely foreshadows pending administrative disciplinary charges against members of the agency's Horse Patrol Unit lodged during the Haitian migrant crisis in Del Rio.  The source, speaking on the condition of anonymity, says the document also warns against repatriating migrants without due process by encouraging them to return to Mexico.  The memorandum from Tony L. Barker, Acting Chief of the Border Patrol's Law Enforcement Directorate, was disseminated on Friday.

The Editor says...
Joe Biden — or whoever makes his decisions and pulls his strings — is effectively moving the border northward by telling the Border Patrol not to enforce the international boundary right where it is.  Give them an inch, and they'll definitely take a mile.

Libertarians: It's Americans' Fault Illegal Migrants Die.  Migrant Haitians are drowning in the Atlantic, and it is Americans' fault, says Reason magazine, a libertarian publication.  "With land-based migration proving difficult, some desperate Haitians are attempting to reach American soil aboard overcrowded ships," says the June 13 article, which is headlined "America's Harsh Immigration Restrictions Mean Haitians Drown Trying To Get Here." [...] "Significant numbers of people are losing their lives because the administration is luring them to take these foolish risks," responded Mark Krikorian, the director of the Center for Immigration Studies.

Texas's Gov. Abbott blocks and breaks that gargantuan incoming caravan.  Joe Biden is letting one of the largest illegal migrant caravans in history move into the U.S., with no effort to stop it.  Texas's governor, Greg Abbott, isn't.  According to a very interesting report by Todd Bensman of the Center for Immigration Studies, the record-sized 15,000-strong caravan has run into interference from the Texas governor, and his counterpart in the adjacent Mexican state of Coahuila, who had the foresight to sign an agreement in April about border security.

DHS plans to punish Border Patrol agents already cleared in 'whipping' of migrants.  The Biden administration was left with egg all over its face when, after embracing a phony leftist narrative about Border Patrol agents "whipping" migrants illegally crossing into the U.S., it quietly dropped the matter and hoped no one would notice.  They should have apologized to the agents.  Instead, they're coming for the agents a second time.

Team of Fools:  Biden's Cabinet Picks Prove He is Unfit to Lead.  I have written extensively about Biden's shortcomings.  Nothing exceeds his capacity for choosing the wrong people.  It would be difficult to zero in on Biden's worst choice, but his Homeland Security Secretary would be a good candidate.  Alejandro Mayorkas has me somewhat confused.  I can't tell if he is a consummate liar or just plain delusional.  Mayorkas claimed that his message to migrants heading to the U.S. is:  "Do not come."  Then he declared that "Our border is not open."  He also asserted his department has "a handle" on migration.  "We're not letting people loose," he said.  More blatant lies never have been uttered.  In direct contradiction to his statements and his sworn duty to uphold the law, Mayorkas deliberately has allowed more than a million to cross our southern border illegally.  "The vast majority of those people are single adults — not families fleeing poverty," said Liz Peek on Fox News, "and the total includes 40 men on the terror watch list.  Under Mayorkas, deaths due to drug overdoses topped 100,000 for the first time ever, the vast majority from fentanyl, imported from China and Mexico across our southern border."

Biden has filled admin with open border activists who 'do not care': Brandon Judd.  National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd criticized open border "activists" within the White House Tuesday for the migrant crisis at the southern border.  On "America's Newsroom," Judd argued President Biden and his staff "do not care" about the issues created by illegal immigration like drug smuggling, human trafficking and economic strain so long as they achieve their political agenda.  [Video clip]

Supreme Court Rules Thousands of Immigrants Can Be Detained Indefinitely.  The U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Monday that immigrants detained in the United States are not entitled to a bond hearing, a decision that means that the thousands of people with open immigration cases who are currently in federal holding facilities can continue to be detained indefinitely.  The high court also ruled that federal courts lack the authority to grant class-wide relief to detainees.  In other words, if any detainees want to argue in the future that they have a right to a bond hearing, they will need to bring their cases individually, despite the fact that immigrants are not entitled to counsel during immigration proceedings.

No, They're Not Sending Their Best.  America is one of the most welcoming nations on the planet, but you would never know it listening to our mass media. [...] The likes of U.S. Representative Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Ana Navarro on "The View," and MSNBC's Mehdi Hasan have done very well for themselves in the United States, but they don't do a very good job of showing their gratitude.  Imagine if you invited someone over for dinner and they spent the night making snide comments about your out-of-date kitchen.  It's just not polite.  Many of these figures wear the "child of immigrants" and "hyphenated-American" labels like honorifics ("I love hyphens," Navarro says), a wise career move in a time that treats borders as arbitrary lines and those who cross them illegally as more worthy than Americans.  These super-citizens are not shy about exercising their privileges.  They never stop talking about their foreign background, which they use as a cudgel against the native-born.  They tend to become particularly voluble in the aftermath of politically charged events with the potential to transform the culture and laws of the United States.

Supreme Court rules noncitizens not entitled to bond hearings.  On Monday, the United States Supreme Court ruled that unlawful migrants to the United States are not entitled to a bond hearing.  The opinion stems from the migration of Antonio Arteaga-Martinez.  Arteaga-Martinez, a Mexican Citizen, came to the United States unlawfully on four occasions without inspection until May 2018, when Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) issued a warrant for Arteaga-Martinez's arrest after he had been living and working in the United States for almost six years.  ICE's detention of Arteaga-Martinez did not come with the opportunity for a bond hearing and he was set to be removed from the United States.

It is time to admit that the American left is malevolent.  From the moment Joe Biden illegitimately took office, he opened the border to migrants from all over the world, over 175 countries, and secretly transports them to towns and cities throughout America, amongst unsuspecting citizens.  Thousands of them are ill with a variety of third world diseases and of course covid.  Thousands of them are vicious gang members, human sex traffickers and/or pedophiles.  Thousands of unaccompanied minors have been trafficked with the administration's knowledge and approval.  All of the migrants pay the Mexican drug cartels thousands of dollars to be "crossed over" into the US.  The cartels are netting millions of dollars a week in payments for getting migrants into America for what many of them believe will lead to citizenship and a free ride.  Of course, many of them are economic migrants who seek better and safer lives for themselves and their families.  They are people who are used to and willing to work.  But the jobs they get are jobs American citizens might have had for better wages.  The Biden administration does not care about those American citizens who will be denied a living wage because millions of migrants will take those jobs for less.

Border Patrol cannot see path forward under Biden: 'There is no morale'.  U.S. Border Patrol agents stationed along the southern border have nothing left in the tank.  For months, agents have warned that morale within the ranks of the federal law enforcement organization is sinking, but the last shreds of spirit have since been dashed by outright animosity from the Biden administration, agents told the Washington Examiner.  "Under Biden, things are the worst they have ever been by far," said one agent who is based in Arizona.  "Agents are calling in all the time.  You always hear, 'It doesn't matter,' or, 'What's the point?' in reference to doing our job.  Agents are afraid of ending up on the news for doing their job or getting in trouble for doing their job.  There is no morale."

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis Criticizes Texas Governor Greg Abbott for Refusing to Send Illegal Aliens Back to Mexico.  While Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is known for his staunch opposition to the Wuhan virus lockdowns, he has gradually built a reputation as a budding immigration patriot.  According to a report by Brandon Walters at Texas Scorecard, DeSantis is pushing the envelope by criticizing Texas Governor Greg Abbott for his refusal to send illegal aliens back to Mexico.  DeSantis's statements came at a time when illegal border crossers are knifing through the southern border at alarming levels.  "They let them come across and then you give them to the feds, and the feds just release them anyways," DeSantis declared, per a report from Florida Politics.  "What they need to do, Texas, is Texas should just send them back across the border."

The Subordinate Citizen.  The Biden administration blasted the Trump southern border wall and canceled all further funding.  Yet it just appropriated $40 billion to Ukraine to ensure that it does not lose its border war against Russian aggression.  That is a tiny percentage of the federal budget.  But the aid is full of symbolic irony, nonetheless.  The multibillion-dollar appropriation would have more than covered the completion of the entire wall along our own southern border.  An outside observer might conclude that the U.S. government intends to uphold the universal idea of national sovereignty, internationally recognized borders, and the security of citizens inside their own country — as long as they are not American citizens.

Biden says nations 'need to halt the dangerous ways people are migrating' and announces plan to send refugees to Spain.  President Joe Biden tore into unlawful immigration in a speech at the Summit of the Americas where he and other leaders vowed to crack down on human smuggling as they announced a new accord.  Biden laced his remarks with tough talk amid record immigration, addressing an issue that has caused his administration political problems from his first days in office.  'We need to halt the dangerous and unlawful ways people are migrating,' he said.  Biden intoned in Los Angeles, where he is hosting the summit.

The Editor says...
[#1] Instead of flying people to Spain, presumably by the thousands, would it not be easier and cheaper to build the border wall and repel the invasion there?  [#2] What did Spain do to deserve an influx of Mexican freeloaders and deadbeats?

Texas AG Calls New Court Ruling 'Massive Defeat' for Biden DHS on Border.  As RedState readers know by now, the Biden Administration's Department of Homeland Security is — to put it delicately — selective about when it thinks agents should enforce immigration law on the border — and on Friday, a judge's decision put that on hold.  [Tweet]  Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton had something to say in the wake of the ruling, in part calling the Abbott administration's win a "massive defeat" on the DHS' shirking its role in "detain[ing] criminal illegals."  [Tweet]

Billionaires Beg Joe Biden to Loosen Rules for Foreign H-1B Visa Workers.  A coalition of multinational corporations and the United States Chamber of Commerce is begging President Joe Biden's administration to loosen rules for foreign H-1B visa workers to pack the labor market with more foreign workers.  In a letter to Biden's Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, the corporate coalition requests the administration allow the spouses and children of foreign H-1B visa workers to take jobs in the U.S. labor market.

'Glam migration:' The illegal immigrant wore Versace.  A U.S. senator was stunned during his recent border trip when he saw an illegal immigrant who'd just jumped the boundary in a Versace dress.  Sen. James Lankford, fresh off a Memorial Day trip to the border in Yuma, Arizona, reported back to colleagues this week on the piles of wall-building materials he saw rusting in the elements, just a mile down the road from a gap in the border wall where migrants could pour through with ease.  The Oklahoma Republican said illegal crossers will step over the boundary and wait for Border Patrol agents to come to pick them up, figuring — usually correctly — that they'll be processed and quickly released into the U.S. to go on to their destinations.

Biden Continues Obama's 'Fundamental Transformation' of America.  Biden has abandoned any semblance of immigration law.  Hundreds of thousands of migrants are now crossing the southern border each month.  More than 1 million crossed the border illegally in 2021.  Estimates place the number of people living in the U.S. illegally at approximately 11.5 million.  If true, that population has increased by more than 10% in just one year.  (Some experts say the number is much higher.  The Foundation for American Immigration Reform estimated the number of illegal immigrants to be more than 12 million in 2017.)  More than 1 million migrants have already entered the country illegally in the first five months of 2022; Border Security reports that 267,175 illegal migrants were apprehended or detected last month.  Another caravan — anticipated to be the largest ever with up to 15,000 people — is headed to the U.S. border now.  What is Biden doing?  Nothing.

Homeland Security will transport migrants to Los Angeles and Dallas as they await deportation proceedings.  The Department of Homeland Security is reportedly planning to send migrants awaiting deportation proceedings deeper into the U.S, and to cities including Los Angeles.  It is one of a number of measures under consideration as U.S. authorities prepare for the end of Title 42 and an expected surge in arrivals.  It comes amid overcrowding at the border, where Customs and Border Protection are already being forced to release migrants in ease conditions at some shelters.  And a thousands-strong caravan is making its way through Mexico.  The new model would transport migrants to cities including Albuquerque, Houston and Dallas, where DHS is already preparing shelters.

Just Stop It!  Open borders harm us in several ways.  They damage the purpose of The Civil Rights Act of 1964 and subsequent legislation that, through set-asides and hiring quotas, aimed to alleviate a century of discrimination to help Black Americans rise in the economy more quickly and join the middle class.  The left replaced the term "African Americans" with "Persons of Color" to describe those entitled to benefit.  This term greatly dilutes Black representation in those efforts and broadly means anyone "not White."  POC immigrants now take entry-level and blue-collar jobs, displacing the very African Americans who were intended to benefit from these programs.  We also face harm from an uncontained flood of people who don't assimilate, including drug mules, child sex traffickers, and terrorists.  Marxists use illegals as mere pawns to overwhelm the system, leading to decline, and adding to spending and inflation.  It has nothing to do with compassion.

Mexico waves through a 15,000-strong migrant caravan.  Our friends the Mexicans, as one might call them, have shown their "friendship" with the U.S., and more specifically the Biden administration, by waving through a huge migrant caravan for illegal entry into the U.S.  The caravan is headed to the States from southern Mexico, stretches 32 miles, and is said to have up to 15,000 "asylum seekers," waving the flags of the countries they are desperate not to be sent back to.  Prior to that, the migrants had been holed up in Tapachula, supposedly awaiting their permits for work in Mexico, or asylum claim adjudication, having largely been stopped and put there after illegally breaking through Mexico's Guatemalan border.  Now organizers of the caravan say Mexico is issuing the permits, whose chief value to the migrants is not the opportunity to work, but as a travel pass.  News outlets report that most migrants will ignore the work offer and move right on through to the U.S. border.  Once they illegally cross, they know that with Joe Biden's border policies, the goodies will flow, and they can stay.  Who'd want to stay and work a low-wage job in Mexico instead?

Why isn't Mexico stopping the caravan?  We just learned that a new migrant caravan is coming north. [...] Up here, the impotent Biden administration is going to play word games (asylum seekers), dump this on the overwhelmed Border Patrol, and put the illegal border crossers on a midnight plane to somewhere. [...] So what do we do now?  First of all, we need to confront the governments of Venezuela, Cuba, and Nicaragua and tell them to stop it.  Cuba is desperate for cash and we could cancel all U.S.-Havana flights immediately.  I'm convinced that the Castro regime is desperately trying to get rid of people.  Second, what about Mexico?  The article points out that Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez-Obrador is trying to play the role of the humanitarian.  Why doesn't he offer residence to the "caravan-istas"? Invite them to stay in Mexico.

Mexican President Calls for American Superstate, Open Borders.  Mexico's president is reviving calls for a continental superstate that would combine North American employers and South American employees — and sideline tens of millions of middle-class Americans.  "I will go in July to visit [President Joe Biden] at the White House and I want to discuss with him the issue of the integration of all America," President Andrés Manuel López-Obrador said at a press conference in Mexico's presidential palace.  He continued:  "My position is that, just as how the European community was created ... we have to do that in America."

Obviously AMLO wants Mexico's criminals to flow this way, and America's money to flow that way.  No, thanks.  Build the wall!  (And more prisons.)

Border Conveyor Belt Continues.  When the time came to finally board the idling charter bus, a Cuban named George who illegally swam the Rio Grande two days earlier ran to be first in line and start his new "forever" life inside America.  George staked his claim as some 200 other illegal border-crossers, many still carrying their belongings in plastic detention center bags, formed behind him three and four abreast in a line stretching half a football field long. [...] The well-oiled process CIS observed in Del Rio gave rise to scenes where incoming Border Patrol buses disgorge their passengers fresh from processing stations right next to outbound Greyhound buses loading up with de facto immigrants heading to new American lives.  On May 20, a Louisiana federal judge ruled that the Biden administration can't kill the Title 42 expulsions, which also deny access to the U.S. asylum system, and must for now continue expelling border-crossing aliens.  But that ruling appears to be proving no imposition at all for escalating numbers of them.  A roaring, expanding conveyor belt of buses and airplanes is hauling thousands of previously expellable crossers like George into American cities, out of ear shot or sight of the American public.

Biden's Diabolical Plan:  Bureaucrats To Grant Asylum, Not Judges.  Biden has started the first phase of a program in Texas to have government bureaucrats grant asylum, without having it adjudicated by a court.  Such a program based on government employees making the decisions without a judge or prosecutor would be very vulnerable to infiltration by open-borders radicals and also to bribery.  This would open the floodgates at the border even much wider than they are already, making it nearly impossible to deport these bureaucrat-designated "asylees" in the future.  This new, very great threat to our national sovereignty is being implemented by edict, a rule change, not by changing the law.  Texas and other states have filed a lawsuit to have it stopped.  We already have chaos at the border even with Title 42 still in place.  The Border Patrol has been turned into an organization that assists the cartels in helping mostly unqualified asylum claimant to cross the border illegally, instead of protecting the border as is their original mission.  Title 42 is supposed to require all illegal border crossers to be returned to Mexico, but Biden has made so many loopholes and exceptions to the policy that a large proportion of them are still being released into the US.

Largest ever migrant caravan begins walk across entire length of Mexico to U.S. border.  The largest-ever migrant caravan is beginning its trek to the US-Mexico border.  The estimated number of migrants in the caravan ranges from about 11,000 to 15,000.  Most of them are women and children.  The news of the caravan comes at a particularly awkward time for the Biden administration.  Biden's Summit of the Americas is supposed to begin Monday in Los Angeles.  As often happens with the Biden administration, details about the Summit are murky.  As of the middle of last week, the leaders who will attend has not been confirmed.  The caravan plans to leave Tapachula, a city on the Mexico-Guatemala border, on Monday, the same day the Summit of the Americas is set to begin.  Other caravans have left from Tapachula in the past but this one is said to be the largest one ever.  The migrants in the caravan aren't just from Central America, they are from countries around the world, from as far away as Africa and India.

The Editor says...
This influx would stop overnight if the U.S. government made it abundantly clear that [#1] anyone caught sneaking into this country will be deported to a remote and desolate point somewhere on the earth, the name of which will not be revealed to the deportee, and [#2] anyone entering this country legally after January 31, 2021, will be ineligible to vote or to receive government benefits of any kind.

Will the secret New York migrant flights ever stop?  As illegal migration at the southern border breaks new records, the Biden administration has upped the frequency of its secret flights to an industrial scale.  Migrant flights into New York have ratcheted up in recent weeks to almost one per night, and now a new airport is being utilized to cater for the overflow, in an apparent bid by the administration to avoid images of border chaos before the November mid-term elections.  New York Stewart International Airport, in the Hudson Valley, is taking up the slack for Westchester County Airport, according to video provided to The [New York] Post by Republican gubernatorial hopeful Rob Astorino.  "It's just an expansion of this program and a second airport no one thought they would go through, either to be clandestine or because of a need for another runway,' says Astorino.

Like the US, England is being buried under illegal aliens and economic migrants.  With Biden in office, America's southern border has vanished entirely.  Illegal aliens crossed the border over 1.6 million times in 2021 and, this year, they're going to break that record, given that they're marching across the border at the rate of around 200,000 per month (a number that may increase if Biden gets rid of the Title 42 health restriction).  Once here, if the illegal aliens are caught, the government feeds them, clothes them, gives them free baby formula (if they need it), and ships them across the country to wherever they want to go.  But believe it or not, we're the lucky ones.  What's happening in Europe and, especially, in England is infinitely worse.

Buried News:  Customs and Border Protection is recruiting single moms as 'asylum seekers' — in Mexico.  The New York Times did an interesting, but biased photo story of how illegal immigrants cross the border to claim asylum in the U.S., one segment of a long chain of events that has seen the transport of more than a million so-called "asylum seekers" into the U.S. in the Joe Biden era.  [Excerpts omitted for brevity.]  Did we read that right?  Someone at Customs and Border Protection is actually recruiting illegal migrants from a foreign country to come into the states to seek "asylum"?  Humanitarian exceptions?  What if these people are bringing in COVID — or tuberculosis, monkey pox, malaria, leishmanosis, or any of a host of diseases migrants are known to carry from their countries of orgin, if not pick up while willingly placing themselves in the hands of human smugglers, who have zero concerns for migrant health?  The story does say that the migrants are tested for COVID when they are brought in, but it does not say that the migrants who test positive for COVID are sent back.

Feds bust extensive Uber smuggling ring at northern border.  Federal authorities say Rajinder Pal Singh had figured out a pretty sweet scam, smuggling illegal immigrants from India across the northern border and into the Seattle area — by putting them in Ubers.  Investigators revealed evidence of more than 90 Uber trips they say showed patterns of smuggling that they connected to Mr. Singh from just one Uber account.  And they traced a total of 17 accounts to his organization, according to court documents.  Mr. Singh's arrest late last month underscored the dangers and vulnerabilities at the northern border, far from the U.S.-Mexico boundary that gets most of the attention these days.

The U.S. Government Pays to Bus In Thousands of Migrants over the Southern Border Daily.  U.S. border officials are quietly bussing a vast flood of wage-cutting, rent-spiking migrants into Americans' towns and cities, despite the court-ordered preservation of the Title 42 barrier.  "It's like 8,000 to 9,000 a day now," and there are more on the way, migration monitor Todd Bensman told Breitbart News.  U.S. border chief Alejandro Mayorkas and his pro-migration deputies are using the Title 42 barrier to send some Central American single men and families back to Mexico.  But Mayorkas is cutting loopholes in the barrier to place everyone else on government-funded buses to cities and towns around the United States, said Bensman, who works for the Center for Immigration Studies.

Our Economic Misery Isn't an Accident, It's the Plan.  Two million illegal aliens are expected to invade America because the Biden administration is paying a whole lot of attention to keeping the border open.  That's why it's busy fighting in court to dump Title 42 so that every illegal alien who crosses the border will be sure to come here.  When an administration makes increasing the flow of illegal aliens a core legal priority for the DOJ, that means it's paying a whole lot of attention to it. [...] The Biden administration doesn't believe that there should be a border.  That's why the border is open wider than Biden's brain on a Tuesday night.

Congressman: Baby formula stocked at border for migrants 'like a Costco'.  On a trip to visit the United States-Mexico border this week, Rep. Buddy Carter (R-GA) said he saw well-stocked warehouses with a variety of supplies including baby formula.  The facility for unaccompanied minors and families in Donna, Texas is stocked high "like a Costco" with baby formula, Carter said in a Thursday interview with Fox News.  While the border patrol facilities for migrants are well-stocked, Texas is one of the states worst-affected by the baby formula shortage, according to data from the market research group IRI.  The congressman said he and his colleagues were specifically on the lookout for formula at the border facilities.

Illegal immigrant population soars to 11.6 million.  President Joe Biden's open borders policies have led to a more than 10% surge in the United States's illegal immigrant population, according to a new review of federal data.  Numbers reviewed by the Census Bureau and the Bureau of Labor Statistics show that the illegal population grew from 10.2 million when Biden took office to 11.6 million in April.  "This means that illegal immigrants accounted for some 1.35 million (about two-thirds) of the two million growth in the total foreign-born population since President Biden took office," according to the analysis from the Center for Immigration Studies.  As a result, the foreign-born population in the nation, which includes legal and illegal immigrants, is 47 million, or 14.3% of the total population, the highest in 112 years.

The Editor says...
The illegal immigrant population has been well over 11 million for at least 12 years and the actual number is probably closer to 30 million.  None of the illegal aliens are leaving, at least not at the rate that new arrivals come in.

2 million new faces in 16 months:  The Biden era's foreign-born boom.  In a new analysis for the Center for Immigration Studies, my colleague Karen Zeigler and I show that the total foreign-born or immigrant population reached 47 million in April 2022 — the highest number ever in American history, and an increase of 2 million in just the first 16 months of the Biden administration.  These numbers are extraordinary, not only because they indicate that America has lost control of its borders, but also because they raise profound questions about how many people the country can successfully integrate.  The new estimates are derived from the Census Bureau's Current Population Survey (CPS), collected each month for the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).  The foreign-born include all persons who were not US citizens at birth.

Biden to announce new plan for migration — at a summit Mexico is boycotting.  Really?  The guy who invited 2 million illegal migrants in as "asylum seekers" is now wanting to keep them out?  That's just a whiff of the problem, here's the big one:  Mexico has no intention of attending the conference.  Mexico and a whole lot of the rest of the 34 or so countries in the regional grouping are planning to boycott the gathering, because Biden has not invited Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua to come. [...] U.S. officials, according to the Reuters report, are downplaying the possibility of any problems to the plan with Mexico not in attendance.  Yeah, sure.  But with Mexico likely out, all we have are questions as to what kind of migration plan is this?

Uvalde Schools [have been] Locked Down at Least 48 Times This Academic Year.  The Uvalde public school district is no stranger to campus lockdowns.  In October 2021, Mayor Don McLaughlin reported the district had been forced into lockdowns 48 times during the first few months of the school year, largely due to human smuggler pursuits near campuses.  At the time, Uvalde Mayor McLaughlin joined with a commission of local government representatives of Kinney and Uvalde Counties to demand action from the Texas Department of Emergency Management (TDEM) regarding the growing border crisis, Breitbart Texas' Randy Clark reported.  The county and city officials detailed the consequential impact of the border crisis on local resources.

Drew Hernandez shows illegal immigrants being released into the US by NGOs.  Video taken near the southern border has revealed illegal immigrants being process and bussed from Eagle Pass, Texas to various places across the United States.  The video, taken by journalist and Frontlines host Drew Hernandez, was filmed outside of the Border Patrol station in Eagle Pass.  The station is part of the Del Rio sector in Texas, which is one of the busiest.  [Video clip]

A Dark Age in America.  Our southern border is nonexistent, and politicians are loath to do anything about it.  Illegal aliens pour across and then demand — as if it were their God-given right — support and acceptance.  If they're intercepted by Border Patrol, they get medical care and free transport to wherever they want to go.  Without background checks, security checks, or anything other than a rudimentary health screening, they are handed documents telling them to report for a sanctuary hearing at some far-future date.  Then they're released.  Of course, none will show up for that hearing.  They will remain and be given driver's licenses, de facto voting rights, EBT cards, housing, and ongoing medical care — all at taxpayer expense.  And that's now, before Title 42 is repealed!  Then a floodgate will open, exponentially compounding the problem and the cost.  Children of illegals fill our schools, slowing education as they are taught just enough English to be able to do their lessons at the expense of American children.  With the illegals flows a river of drugs.  Every five minutes, one person in America dies of fentanyl.  Yet our government does nothing.

Immigration Disappears From Kamala Harris' Public Schedule.  It was her first overseas trip, and Vice President Harris, recently deputized to address what the White House calls "the root causes of migration," was in Guatemala trying to break through with a simple message.  "Do not come," Harris told would-be migrants last June.  "Do not come.  The United States will continue to enforce our laws and secure our borders."  They did not listen, or if any migrants did hear Harris last year, many ignored her message.  Just last month, according to U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, 234,088 migrants were apprehended at the southern border, the highest mark ever recorded.

Gov. Abbott says he will send more than 400 buses of migrants to DC.  Governor Greg Abbott said Monday [5/23/2022] that Texas has been forced to 'fight' against the Biden administration regarding border security and said he wants to flood Washington, D.C. with 450 buses of migrants so the nations' capital can experience what his state's communities are facing.  The governor, speaking at a press conference in Eagle Pass, Texas on Monday afternoon, said that the cities and towns in his state are seeing 'illegal migrants dumped off in their communities' by the busloads every day.  'They had no capability of dealing with them,' Abbott told the press gathered in Eagle Pass City Hall. 'And they talked about having to put them on buses and send them up to San Antonio.  I said, I've got a better idea — we're going to send them to Washington, D.C.'

Want to Visit America?  Forget Getting a Visa.  Just Walk Across the Border.  [Scroll down]  If a Nigerian woman wants to visit her boyfriend in Atlanta, or Denver, for example, she will have to wait 760 days just for an embassy appointment.  A family from Colombia hoping to visit Disney World will wait 696 days for their visa appointment.  A physician in Mexico wanting to attend an American medical conference won't get an appointment for 570 days, long after the medical meeting is over.  Yet the irony is that if that same physician, family, or woman made their way to the U.S. southern border, they could sashay across, and if even apprehended crossing, they could claim persecution, ask for asylum, and be granted entry into the U.S. They would also receive a welcome basket of goodies including food stamps, Medicaid health insurance, Social Security income, and other forms of assistance, including free education for their children.

It Sure Looks Like Joe Biden Is Trying to Purposely Destroy the Country.  Biden and his handlers continue to fight tooth and nail to completely destroy the border, and that's assuming they haven't already completed the task.  The Border Patrol is essentially ineffective at this point, with hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants crossing a month.  Facilities are full, local cities have no resources to help, and deportations are happening at a painstakingly slow rate compared to the overall influx.  And what's Biden doing?  He's still fighting to lift Title 42, which as I noted above, only remains in place because Republican-led states have won battles in court.

Justice Department announces it will appeal after federal judge blocks Biden from lifting Title 42.  The Biden says it disagrees with the ruling by a Louisiana federal judge which blocked them from ending Title 42 — as the Justice Department announces it will appeal.  White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said that the authority to make decisions on public health policy nationally 'should rest with the Centers for Disease Control, not with a single district court.  Judge Robert Summerhays, a Trump appointee in the Western District of Louisiana, had granted a preliminary injunction on the Biden administration's move to end the restriction on Monday in response to lawsuits from two dozen Republican states, led by Arizona, Louisiana and Missouri.

Federal judge Blocks Biden from lifting Title 42 at the border.  The Biden says it disagrees with the ruling by a Louisiana federal judge which blocked them from ending Title 42 — as the Justice Department announces it will appeal.  White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said that the authority to make decisions on public health policy nationally 'should rest with the Centers for Disease Control, not with a single district court.  Judge Robert Summerhays, a Trump appointee in the Western District of Louisiana, had granted a preliminary injunction on the Biden administration's move to end the restriction on Monday in response to lawsuits from two dozen Republican states, led by Arizona, Louisiana and Missouri.

Federal Judge Blocks Biden From Ending Trump-Era Border Policy.  A federal judge ruled Friday that the Biden administration's move to end Title 42, the pandemic health policy used to quickly expel illegal migrants, must be paused, siding with Republican attorneys general who sued the administration.  "The Court agrees with the Plaintiff States that a nation-wide injunction is necessary for complete relief given the ability of immigrants crossing the border to move freely from one state to another," Judge Robert Summerhays said in his decision.

Conservative justice sides with liberal judges in 5-4 SCOTUS ruling on illegal immigrant deportation.  In the case of an illegal immigrant seeking to avoid deportation, a ruling of 5-4 against found the United State Supreme Court in disagreement as to their specific role within the constitutional framework and Justice Neil Gorsuch sided with his liberal peers.  Pankajkumar Patel had entered the country illegally in the 90s with his wife Jyotsnaben and had endeavored to adjust his status in 2007 with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).  However, when seeking to obtain his Georgia driver's license, Patel had erroneously indicated that he was already a citizen and so his discretionary adjustment had been denied.  The case of Patel v. Garland was heard by SCOTUS after Patel had appealed to the 11th Circuit Court following the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) attempting to deport him and his wife.  Writing for the majority, Justice Amy Coney Barrett was joined by Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Brett Kavanaugh in ruling the matter was outside their purview because Congress had set forth the rules Attorney General Merrick Garland's Justice Department was required to follow.

You are paying for migrants to take charter flights.  Secret government charter flights paid for by taxpayer funds are quietly transporting migrants from the southern border to other cities across the U.S.  The flights, which take off from border cities like El Paso, Texas, are taking busloads of illegal aliens to various cities around the country including Jacksonville, Florida, Alexandria, Louisiana and Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.  Lawmakers are demanding more transparency about the flights and where the migrants are going, with some state and regional leaders alleging they were not informed about the relocation plans.

DeSantis Plans to Use Funds to Bus Illegal Immigrants Dumped in Florida to Biden's Delaware.  No one has "done more to help the cartels" than President Biden with his embrace of radical open-border policies, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) said on Wednesday, noting that Americans are "bracing" for the administration's repeal of Title 42 and warning that his administration plans to bus illegal immigrants dumped in Florida to Biden's Delaware.  Americans are "bracing" for the Biden administration to end the Trump-era Title 42 at the southern border, which allowed agents to more easily turn illegal immigrants away.  Last week, a federal judge in Louisiana extended the temporary restraining order preventing the Biden administration from ending the rule.

The Editor says...
If the illegal aliens have been moved to Florida, rather than being deported, then the federal government has abdicated its responsibility to deport them, and (it seems to me) the states should be legally able to deport the aliens to Central or South America, if that's what it takes to send a clear message.

Is Biden's 'Success' Our Mess?  Apparently, what most in the country see as disasters, Biden envisions as success.  Take the border — or rather its disappearance.  Never in U.S. history has an administration simply canceled immigration laws, opened the border, and welcomed in millions of illegal aliens.  All arrive illegally, and without audit, or vaccinations and tests in times of a pandemic.  Cartels now import lethal drugs at will into the United States.  We have no idea how many terrorists walk across the border each day.  Almost all the millions who break the law by entering are poor, without high school diplomas or English skills, and in dire need of massive federal and state housing, food, education, legal, and health subsidies.

Border Patrol Using Rare 'Parole' Exemption to Quickly Release Tens of Thousands of Illegal Aliens Into US.  U.S. Border Patrol has started to use, on a mass scale, a special "parole" exception that was previously used sparingly to allow tens of thousands of illegal immigrants to stay in the United States for at least a year, The Epoch Times has learned.  Under parole status, illegal immigrants don't have to provide Border Patrol with evidence of credible fear for asylum and are permitted entry without any preconditions, except a quick background check in the U.S. crime database.  A Customs and Border Protection spokesman said the parole designation allows for overwhelmed Border Patrol stations to process large numbers of illegal aliens "significantly faster" and release them into the country much faster than the more involved current system — which releases an illegal alien with a notice to appear that includes a court date for their first immigration hearing.

Migrant Encounters Hit Record High As Biden Looks To End Title 42 Next Week.  Migrant encounters at the southern border hit a record high in April, according to new filings from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Fox News' Bill Melugin reported.  The record-setting month comes as President Joe Biden looks to end Title 42, a Trump-era policy allowing Border Patrol to turn away migrants at the border due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Biden Subsidizes Business with 35K Foreign Workers to Hire for U.S. Jobs as Nearly 12M Americans Remain Jobless.  President Joe Biden is subsidizing businesses with 35,000 more foreign H-2B visa workers to hire for non-agricultural jobs in the United States, even as nearly 12 million Americans remain jobless.  On Monday, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced that the administration would begin allowing businesses to hire up to 35,000 additional foreign H-2B visa workers for nonagricultural jobs in construction, hospitality, and landscaping.

234,088 migrants [were] encountered at southern border in April, [the] most in a century.  The number of migrants encountered attempting to enter the United States illegally from Mexico rose in April, surpassing all previous records over the past century, an indication of the scale of the illegal immigration crisis at the border.  U.S. border officials intercepted 234,088 migrants attempting to enter the country illegally last month, according to a federal court document obtained by the Washington Examiner late Monday [5/16/2022].  In the first 15 full months of President Joe Biden's term in office, federal law enforcement at the southern border have stopped more than 2.75 million people attempting to cross into the United States without permission.

Dozens of migrants released onto streets of El Paso as shelters near capacity.  About 100 immigrants claiming asylum were released into downtown El Paso, Texas, Sunday as federal facilities and nonprofit migrant shelters reach capacity in the border city, according to the El Paso Times.  The migrants were released before dawn, and some quickly made plans to travel on to other cities, while others lingered on the streets of El Paso or at the airport — too broke to leave or book a hotel.  These immigrants have cleared the initial steps in their asylum case and are authorized to be in the US until a judge makes a ruling, which can often take years.  When they are released by federal authorities, the migrants give Immigration and Customs Enforcement an address where they can be found, are often tracked by ICE and must check in as they move through the legal process.

Senator Probes Biden Admin for Offloading Baby Formula to Illegal Immigrants.  Congress is investigating the Biden administration for reportedly shipping pallets of baby formula to illegal immigrants, according to a copy of the probe obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.  Sen. Ron Johnson (R., Wis.) is asking the Department of Homeland Security and the Food and Drug Administration to provide information on the steps it is taking to combat the nationwide shortage of baby formula in light of reports that illegal immigrants detained by federal authorities are receiving "pallets" of formula at detention centers.  "As hard-working American parents struggle to find infant formula, a recent news report indicated that illegal immigrants detained by Border Patrol may not be experiencing these difficulties," Johnson writes in a letter sent Friday to Biden administration leaders.  "A member of Congress reportedly obtained photographs from a Border Patrol agent showing that shelves at a Customs and Border Protection (CBP) detention center in McAllen, Texas, are stocked with 'pallets' of baby formula."

The Absolute Lunacy of Catch and Release.  The Gordian knot of our nation's immigration crisis involves few policy disasters more burdensome than "catch-and-release."  While many Americans have heard the phrase, most do not understand why it is such a problem.  Catch-and-release has become an umbrella term for a host of policies and practices that allow for a porous border and let untold numbers of illegal aliens live in the country with little fear of deportation.  It specifically refers to the scenario in which law enforcement officers apprehend someone here illegally.  Instead of detaining the person until his case may be heard before an immigration judge, he is instead released into the country until he's notified of a hearing date.  A fishing term, catch-and-release came into political practice during the administration of George W. Bush.  Michael Chertoff, Bush's homeland security chief, had pledged in testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee to "return every single illegal entrant — no exceptions."  While Chertoff pushed for more detentions, catch-and-release made a comeback under Barack Obama and was not threatened again until Donald Trump targeted it as one of the centerpieces of this immigration enforcement push.

Migration crisis has worsened despite Biden's pledge to address 'root causes'.  President Joe Biden pledged to end the migration crisis by addressing the root causes that have led millions to flee Central America for the U.S. southern border.  Sixteen months into Biden's tenure, though, the situation at the U.S. border with Mexico is far worse, and the administration's efforts to improve conditions in migrants' home countries have not amounted to much.  Encounters of illegal immigrants at the southern border are at all-time highs.

Biden administration makes sure that children of illegal immigrants are well fed.  This week, the US Department of Health and Human Services launched a page online entitled Fact Sheet:  Helping Families Find Formula During the Infant Formula Shortage.  The shortage is based on a recall by Abbott Nutrition on much of its powdered formula lines after four infants fell ill and two sadly died.  The manufacturer claims there was no connection between the illnesses, deaths and their product.  They are waiting on the all-clear from the Food and Drug Administration to resume production.

Lifting Title 42 Will Mean Fewer Border Patrol Agents in Field.  Border security experts expect the nation will bear the consequences of more illegal immigration whether the Biden administration ends a key public health measure by the end of the month or does it later.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced last month that the policy, known as Title 42, would expire May 23.  President Joe Biden's Department of Homeland Security has estimated that could mean an influx of 18,000 migrants a day who cross the border illegally.

Biden Admin Sends Massive Amount Of Baby Formula To Illegal Immigrants.  Under the Biden admin, America has been put last in every way possible.  Recent reports from the Southern Border have revealed that the Biden admin has been sending pallets of baby formula to migrant holding facilities.  The shipments of baby formula to the illegal immigrants come in the midst of a severe shortage of baby formula across the country.  Since April, the quantity of infant formula available across the country has dropped by forty percent, leaving parents of newborns scrambling to find nourishment that they can give to their children.  In addition, Abbott Laboratories issued a recall for Similac, which has made the shortage of formula even worse during the past few months.

Border detention center looks stocked with baby formula despite shortage.  As American families deal with a shortage of baby formula across the US, a Florida Republican lawmaker has released images of dozens of boxes of the coveted product at a migrant processing facility near the US-Mexico border.  Rep. Kat Cammack shared pictures of "pallets" of infant formula at the Ursula Migrant Processing Center in McAllen, Texas on her Twitter and Facebook pages Wednesday [5/11/2022].  "The first photo is from this morning at the Ursula Processing Center at the U.S. border.  Shelves and pallets packed with baby formula," she wrote in a tweet accompanying side-by-side photographs of full and bare shelves.  "The second is from a shelf right here at home.  Formula is scarce.  This is what America last looks like."

Whistleblower Confirms Brian Craig Was Right About Baby Formula Shortage!  Steve Kane Radio Show co-host Brian Craig speculated on May 10 that he believes that the federal government is stockpiling baby formula in order to provide it to illegal aliens crossing the border.  Well, lo and behold, just ONE day later on May 11, Florida Congresswoman Kat Cammack informed the world that a border patrol whistleblower confirmed that Brian was exactly right.  A photo was provided of the Ursula Processing Center in Texas showing full shelves of baby formula.

Lawmaker Says Migrants Are Getting 'Pallets' Of Baby Formula Amid Nationwide Shortage.  Migrants are receiving ample supplies of baby formula, according to Republican Florida Rep. Kat Cammack, while Americans are experiencing severe formula shortages.  Photos allegedly taken by a Border Patrol agent at the Ursula Processing Center in McAllen, Texas showed fully stocked shelves of baby formula supposedly given to migrants, according to a Wednesday Twitter post by Cammack.  The photos come as Americans across the country are seeing empty shelves where stores used to have baby formula as a result of the supply chain crisis and product recalls.

GOP rep says illegal migrants sent 'pallets' of hard-to-find baby formula.  Pallets of baby formula are being sent to holding facilities at the border amid a shortage that has seen many parents unable to find it at their local stores, according to a GOP representative.  "They are sending pallets, pallets of baby formula to the border," Rep. Kat Cammack, R-Fla., said in a video posted to Facebook Wednesday.  "Meanwhile, in our own district at home, we cannot find baby formula."  Cammack posted pictures to social media of empty formula shelves in Florida next to the pallets of food being sent to the border, saying in the video that a concerned border patrol agent sent her the image.

Zero Horsepower:  Media-Driven Scandal Leaves Border Patrol Agents Without Critical Tool.  The Border Patrol agents cleared of criminal wrongdoing in the wake of a media-driven frenzy over images falsely suggesting they whipped Haitian migrants are nonetheless prohibited from riding horses, hobbling their ability to secure swaths of the border inaccessible by car, according to a Border Patrol union representative.  All of the agents implicated in the controversy have been cleared by the Department of Homeland Security to carry out most of their professional duties, according to Chris Cabrera, a spokesman for the National Border Patrol Council and Local 3307.

Joe Biden's puppeteers, for whom none of us voted, are doing everything they can to make bad problems worse.
DEA Quietly Removes Narco-Busting Aircraft From Mexico As Drug Overdoses Skyrocket.  As overdose-induced deaths skyrocket to record highs in the U.S, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has quietly relocated a plane fundamental to anti-narcotics operations in Mexico, according to Reuters.  The DEA plane was moved to Texas after Mexican officials revoked its parking spot, according to an anonymous U.S. government official and two security sources, Reuters reported.  The move coincides with new data published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that shows over 100,000 Americans have died of drug overdoses in 2021, which is a 15% increase from 2020 and a 30% increase from 2019 driven largely by the the use of fentanyl and methamphetamine.  China is the primary source of fentanyl and fentanyl-related substances trafficked into the U.S., and the drug is often smuggled into the country at the southern border, according to the DEA.  Border officials have seized record amounts of fentanyl from traffickers in 2022.

Garland says judges may consider criminal illegal immigrants' mental health when considering asylum claims.  Attorney General Merrick Garland on Monday said that immigration judges can now consider the mental health status of an illegal immigrant convicted of an aggravated felony when considering their asylum claim or whether to withhold their deportation — overruling a prior decision by a top immigration appeals board.  The Immigration and Nationality Act makes illegal immigrants ineligible for both asylum and withholding of removal — where illegal immigrants are not returned because they have a fear of persecution if returned to their country of origin — if they have been convicted of a "particularly serious crime" that constitutes a danger to the community.

Biden is a human- and drug-trafficking monster.  Starting on the day he was illegitimately inaugurated, Joe Biden began his joint operation with the drug cartels that control the border between the US and Mexico.  By stopping the building of the border wall (and leaving the paid-for supplies to rust in the desert) he declared the border open to all comers, luring thousands of naïve migrants wanting a better life to risk their lives to get here.  But the opened border was open as well to the cartels that traffic in drugs and humans, especially young girls.  Biden effectively went into business with the most brutal, barbaric people on the planet.  These criminal organizations long ago discovered that they could double the massive profits they rake in from drug smuggling by trafficking human beings.  Joe Biden joined forces with the most lethal criminal organizations on day one of his presidency.  He invited disaffected migrants from around the world to flock to our southern border; they would be welcomed he said and indeed they have been, all two millions-plus of them.

White House blew off public input on policy extending work permits for illegal immigrants.  The Biden administration cut corners in its rush to announce new rules extending work permits for foreigners in the U.S., including many illegal immigrants, and the divergence from standard procedures could imperil the legality of the policy.  Not only did Homeland Security dispense with the usual notice-and-comment period for new regulations, but the White House Office of Management and Budget, which gives final approval to rules, blew off a required meeting with stakeholders, according to would-be attendees.  "This entire regulatory effort is a complete disregard of the Administrative Procedure Act, and they're doing this basically to cover their tracks and avoid accountability for a lot of the policies they've instituted," said Robert Law, director of regulatory affairs at the Center for Immigration Studies, who requested the meeting to share feedback on the new policy.

US billionaires' demand for 'golden passport' schemes that sell citizenships to 'safe' countries for up to $6.5 million.  Soaring numbers of wealthy Americans are buying 'golden passports' that grant them citizenship to New Zealand, Portugal and other 'safe' countries over fears of impending civil war in their home country.  Henley & Partners, a firm that helps the wealthy shop around for citizenship across the globe, said sales to American nationals worth between $50 million and $20 billion have shot up more than 337 percent since 2019, Business Insider reported.  Countries involved — including Portugal, Malta, New Zealand and Austria offer citizenship or visas that lead to citizenship in return for heavy investment in the host national, and a visit of just a few days there each year.

Texas Bar Foundation under investigation for allegedly encouraging, financing illegal immigration.  Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced an investigation Friday [5/6/2022] into the Texas Bar Foundation, saying he's heard complaints the lawyers' group is funneling taxpayers' money to organizations that ehat grant them citizenship to New Zealand, Portugal and other 'safe' countries over fears of impending civil war in their home country.  Henley & Partners, a firm that helps the wealthy shop around for citizenship across the globe, said sales to American nationals worth between $50 million and $20 billion have shot up more than 337 percent since 2019, Business Insider reported.  Countries involved — including Portugal, Malta, New Zealand and Austria offer citizenship or visas that lead to citizenship in return for heavy investment in the host national, and a visit of just a few days there each year.

Texas Bar Foundation under investigation for allegedly encouraging, financing illegal immigration.  Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced an investigation Friday [5/6/2022] into the Texas Bar Foundation, saying he's heard complaints the lawyers' group is funneling taxpayers' money to organizations that encourage and fund illegal immigration.  Mr. Paxton asked the bar to turn over its charitable giving lists for the past 10 years, as well as any documents detailing how those decisions were made.  He said he's received complaints from Rep. Troy Nehls, Texas Republican, and members of the public about the bar foundation's behavior.

Migrants Bused To DC Don't Stay There.  Here's Where They're Going.  Roughly 40 migrants arrived in Washington Wednesday [5/4/2022] morning on buses chartered from Texas as part of Gov. Greg Abbott's effort to bring migrants to the nation's capital, and each of them told the Daily Caller News Foundation that they had no plans to stay.  Texas Gov. Greg Abbott pledged to bus migrants to Washington on April 6 after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) announced that Title 42, the policy used to quickly expel certain migrants during the COVID-19 pandemic, will end May 23.  However, the migrants on the bus Wednesday told the DCNF they were heading to Florida, Maine, New York and Kentucky.  One group of men from Cuba and Venezuela said they were going to Florida, and one of them told the DCNF he was going to Miami.

DHS Secretary Admits Scale of Illegal Alien Crisis, 1.5 million Unlawful Border Entrants Since January 21st.  The scale of the illegal alien influx into the United States is starting to get more attention.  One of the reasons for the increased spotlight is the scale of the numbers DHS is forced to admit.  In this brief video segment DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas admits since January 21st:  836,000 released illegal aliens, plus 207,000 unaccompanied children (UAC's), plus 200k to 400,000 that got away and avoided detention.  Add that up and we have 1.3 to 1.6 million illegal aliens through the southern border in the last three months.

At King Ranch, migrant waves are threatening a Texas institution.  [Scroll down]  But King Ranch is in trouble, and it's not from drought or cattle prices.  The sprawling South Texas ranch is being overrun with migrants traveling up from the U.S. border to Dallas, Houston, San Antonio and other points north.  If King Ranch is in trouble, Texas is in trouble.  On a recent tour of the Rio Grande Valley, the Texas Public Policy Foundation's Border Security Coalition learned of the sprawling ranch's new challenges.  They range from migrants traveling through the property on foot — often with fatal consequences, in a land that was once known as the Wild Horse Desert for its inhospitality, to cars, trucks and vans attempting to evade law enforcement by driving through fences, gates and even bar ditches.  Sometimes, the heat from their catalytic converters causes brush fires — fires that can quickly spread.

Homeland Security Secretary Mayorkas Says DHS Prepared to Facilitate Import of 500,000 Illegal Aliens Per Month.  While appearing on an ironically named CNN broadcast "The State of Our Union", Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas tells John King's ex-wife, that for several months ("since Sept 2021") DHS has been preparing to start handling and processing 18,000 illegal aliens per day (540,000/mo) as soon as CDC Title 42 is lifted.  If DHS estimates are accurate, between now and the November mid-term election, DHS will import an additional 3,000,000 illegal aliens from various nations around the world, through the U.S-Mexico border.  Cumulatively, this arrival estimate will put the number of illegal aliens arriving in the United States during Joe Biden's first two years in office somewhere north of 10 million people.  For scale, that's an imported group of illegal aliens three times the size of the population of Mississippi.  [Video clip]  If his own estimates are correct, in combination with prior arrivals, the aggregate number of illegal aliens will easily exceed 50 million by the end of the year; more than twice the population of Pennsylvania and Ohio combined.

Our Immigration System Isn't Broken, Democrats Are.  Our immigration system worked just fine (not perfectly, mind you, but fine) until a few years ago.  What happened then?  Democrats decided to stop deportations in any real way.  Yes, Democrats had already screwed it up by introducing the concept of birthright citizenship — meaning anyone born here to illegal aliens was given citizenship, a concept so incredibly stupid it's only been adopted by third world hell-holes and the United States, thanks to Democrats.  But the stopping of deportations made things exponentially worse.  Sanctuary cities and states made it clear to would-be illegal aliens that the thousands of dollars they were thinking about dropping on the drug cartels to smuggle them or their children several thousand miles would not be in vain.  The odds of them being returned to wherever they're from if they made it to, say, California were slim to none, even if they committed heinous crimes, because California changed its laws to protect non-citizens over citizens.  Kill a citizen and you might face deportation after a prison sentence, but rob a liquor store or drive drunk repeatedly, abuse a child or spouse?  Meh, the chances the state bothers to call federal immigration authorities increases only slightly, but still don't register in any real way.

DHS [is] expecting up to 18K migrants daily once Title 42 is lifted:  Mayorkas.  As many as 18,000 migrants could cross the southern border daily once the Trump-era Title 42 health regulation is lifted, increasing the strain on federal officials already stretched thin trying to contain the crisis, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas admitted on Sunday [5/1/2022].  "Title 42 is a public health authority.  So what we started to do in September of last year was prepare for its end. ... We're not projecting 18,000, but what we do in the department is we plan for different scenarios, so we're ready for anything," Mayorkas said on CNN's "State of the Union."  When host Dana Bash pressed Mayorkas on if the Department of Homeland Security would be able to handle that kind of surge, he said the department would be prepared — but admitted the system would be under "extraordinary strain."

50 Migrants Cross Heavily Polluted Border River into California.  El Centro Sector Border Patrol agents apprehended a group of more than 50 migrants after they illegally crossed the New River into California.  Officials called the river "one of the most polluted bodies of water in North America."  El Centro Sector Chief Patrol Agent Gregory K. Bovino tweeted a video showing a group of more than 50 migrants illegally crossing a polluted border river from Mexico into California.

6 Takeaways as House Republicans Accuse Homeland Security Chief of 'Intentional' Border Crisis.  According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, agents last month logged over 221,000 "encounters" with illegal aliens along the border, a 33% jump from February.  In testimony before the House Judiciary Committee [4/28/2022], Mayorkas argued that the situation at the border is under "operational control," as the law requires.  Republicans on the committee repeatedly rejected this claim, some saying President Joe Biden's appointee should be impeached and removed for intentionally neglecting his duty under the law.  They pointed to the huge increase in illegal immigrants trying to cross into America and what they said is a lack of policy to address the real issues driving the crisis.

Mayorkas reveals insane plan to divert VA resources from health care for veterans to serve illegals at the border.  In addition to being an immoral betrayal of our pledge to care for those who served us in uniform and politically insane, this diversion if resources would be unnecessary if Biden fulfilled his oath of office and enforced the law.

Critics Blast Biden Admin Attempt to Use Veteran Resources for Border Crisis.  During his recent testimony before Congress, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas informed lawmakers that the Biden administration was considering diverting resources from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to deal with Biden's border debacle.  This includes not just funding but also VA nurses and doctors who are tasked with caring for America's veterans, and who may now be sent to care for illegal immigrants.  It's a ludicrous idea and a terrible decision that Biden seems ready to make.  Veterans' health care has struggled in the past — notably during the last time Biden was in the White House as Vice President in the Obama administration.  America's veterans deserve the best possible care as a small benefit in return for their service to our country and defense of our freedom.  But Biden thinks those who care for veterans can just be shuffled around as his administration flails about trying to handle the border crisis his policies created.  One that's about to get much worse if Biden succeeds in terminating Title 42.

Mayorkas looks to divert VA funding to illegal immigrants.  When Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas recently unveiled his "six pillar plan" for dealing with the crisis on our southern border, he certainly didn't mention this truly awful idea.  During his recent testimony before Congress, Mayorkas slipped in one option that Joe Biden is reportedly considering.  In order to provide better care for the tens of thousands of illegal aliens streaming across the border, the White House is looking at the possibility of diverting funding from the Veterans Administration for that situation.  Additionally, some of the doctors and nurses tasked with caring for our veterans could be reassigned to providing care for the illegals.

Republicans tears into DHS Secretary Mayorkas for 'deliberately trying to overwhelm the US with millions of illegal migrants'.  Representative Jim Jordan accused on Thursday the Biden administration of 'deliberately' and 'intentionally' causing the southern border crisis as Republicans tore into Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas for being 'out of touch' and a 'traitor.'  The House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member said during his opening statement that Mayorkas will face questions on why he implemented policies that led to the chaos.  'It's intentional, it has to be,' Jordan said at the top of his remarks to the body on Thursday morning [4/28/2022].

Biden's open border:  One of the most successful voter drives in Democrats' history.  To fully understand how Democrats plan to turn America into a single-party state, take a look at two of their seemingly disparate actions shortly after President Biden's inauguration.  In Washington, Democrats immediately pushed legislation to fundamentally take over state-run elections to greatly loosen voter registration rules.  While GOP senators stalled the bill in January, Democrats have vowed to enact the unprecedented federalization, somehow, someday.  At the southern border, Mr. Biden has illegally opened the gates to just about anyone — be they drug and sex traffickers, or migrant job seekers, or sex offenders or other criminals.  The brutal Mexican drug cartels are getting richer.  Their Chinese-produced fentanyl is killing record numbers of Americans.  Official count of people illegally entering the U.S. is in the millions in 2021-22 and will go even higher the rest of Mr. Biden's term because he wants it to.  Take the two separately or together — federalized ballot counting and opened borders — and you've got yourself a successful Democratic voter drive.

[There is] Not enough transportation out of border towns for migrants crossing en masse.  Airports and bus companies are struggling to keep up with the transportation needs of southern border towns strained by the number of migrants released by the Biden administration after crossing the border without authorization.  The shortages in transportation can mean that migrants have nowhere to go during the day or overnight, imposing new difficulties for residents of places like Eagle Pass, the remote Texas border town that has become ground zero of the migration crisis in recent weeks.  "This border issue — it's a mess.  I would describe it as chaos right now," Eagle Pass Mayor Rolando Salinas said.  "You have large groups coming in.  It's become normal to see a group of 20 people on Main Street, at Dairy Queen, at the lake.  A lot of them have been released.  They're just walking around our city."

Illegal immigrant population grew by 1 million in Biden's first year, analysis finds.  The illegal immigrant population in the United States increased by roughly 1 million during President Joe Biden 's first year in office, according to a new analysis.  A study from the Federation for American Immigration Reform viewed by Fox News estimates that the population of illegal immigrants had jumped from 14.5 million in 2020 up to 15.5 million.  The analysis from the conservative group found that the increased numbers cost taxpayers at least $143.1 billion, a $9.4 billion increase from 2020.

Illegal immigrant population increased by 1 million in Biden's first year: analysis.  The number of illegal immigrants living in the United States increased by approximately a million in the first year of the Biden administration, and cost the American taxpayer an additional $9.4 billion, according to a new analysis by a conservative group.  The study, an early copy of which was obtained by Fox News Digital, was written by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) which advocates for lower levels of immigration overall.  The study estimates that there are approximately 15.5 million immigrants living in the U.S. illegally, up from 14.5 million in 2020.  Other estimates have typically put that number at around 11 million for years, but immigration hawks have expressed skepticism that the number has stayed flat given the increased activity at the border.

Report: Illegal Immigration Grew by One Million in Biden's First Year, Costing Taxpayers $9.4 Billion.  The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) revealed that America saw illegal immigration increase "by approximately a million" during President Joe Biden's first year.  The increase costs taxpayers "an additional $9.4 billion."
States with the most illegal immigrants:
  •   California: 3.3 million
  •   Texas: 2.2 million
  •   Florida: 1.2 million
  •   New York: 1.1 million
States with the fewest illegal immigrants:
  •   North Dakota: 6,000
  •   West Virginia: 6,000

Federal judge grants temporary restraining order to STOP the Biden administration lifting Title 42 at the border.  A federal judge in Louisiana has agreed to issue a temporary restraining order to keep Title 42, the Center for Disease Control's (CDC) Covid-19 border restriction, in place after a lawsuit from Missouri, Louisiana and Arizona.  'This is a huge victory for border security, but the fight continues on,' Missouri attorney general Eric Schmitt wrote on Twitter announcing the news.  'I am so proud of the lawyers from our office who just got a Temporary Restraining Order to keep Title 42 in place.  We will continue to fight the Biden administration's open border policies,' Arizona attorney general Mark Brnovich wrote on Twitter.  Nineteen other states have signed onto the lawsuit since the three states originally filed it.

Federal Judge Issues Temporary Injunction Keeping Title 42 Immigration Rule in Place Pending Further Court Action.  U.S. District Judge Robert Summerhays has agreed to issue a temporary restraining order blocking the administration's planned May 23 lifting of the CDC immigration rule known as Title 42. [...] NBC is reporting that more than 170,000 illegal aliens, most not from Mexico, are waiting on the other side of the U.S. border for Title 42 to be lifted.  [Video clip]

SCOTUS to Hear Case Over Joe Biden Ending 'Remain in Mexico' Border Policy.  The United States Supreme Court (SCOTUS) is scheduled to hear a case on Tuesday that will decide whether President Joe Biden illegally terminated the Migration Protection Protocols, known as former President Trump's "Remain in Mexico" program.  In 2019, Trump instated the Remain in Mexico program that helped effectively eliminate the policy of Catch and Release at the U.S.-Mexico border.  Rather than apprehending and releasing border crossers into the U.S. interior, the program required officials to return border crossers to Mexico while awaiting their asylum and immigration hearings in U.S. courts.  On June 1, 2021, Biden's Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas issued a memorandum terminating Remain in Mexico.

Top House GOP leadership sends letter to Mayorkas calling him "unsuitable for office"They aren't wrong.  More than 50 House Republicans, including top leadership, signed a letter to DHS Secretary Mayorkas in which they called him unsuitable for office.  Essentially they accuse him of a dereliction of duty.  Who can blame them?  They stop short of calling for him to step down, which is a shame.  Instead they ask for answers to a series of questions.  The letter will not change anything, unfortunately.  Republican lawmakers have questioned Mayorkas and criticized him since the Biden border crisis got underway.  It does no good.  He ignores Congressional criticism.  He isn't going to be fired because he is doing as Biden wants him to do, which is to allow illegal migrants to cross the border and remain in the United States.

Coming to America:  Food Insecurity Is Inevitable.  There is an unprecedented crisis on our southern border as an invasion of illegal immigrants continues to pour into our country.  This is leading to a massive increase in illegal drugs, which is contributing to a record number of drug overdose deaths.  Fueled by a rise in illegal drugs, illegal immigrants and "woke" prosecutors in urban areas, violent crime is skyrocketing in America.

White House continues clandestine migrant flights to NYC area.  A plane full of migrants was unloaded and dispersed to various locations in the New York City area Friday night under cover of darkness, the latest in a series of clandestine flights authorized by the White House.  The flights resumed earlier this month after a Post exposé led to their suspension last year.  On Friday, the Post watched as a group of migrants disembarked from an iAero Airways flight from Jacksonville, Fla. that landed at Westchester County Airport at 9:48 p.m.

Biden to Dems:  We're ending Title 42 no matter how much you complain.  That collective gulp you hear comes from incumbent Democrats checking to see if it's too late in the midterm cycle to retire.  Politico reports that Joe Biden will go full speed ahead on his decision to end Title 42 on the southern border, which used the pandemic to eject undocumented border-crossers rather than the normal catch-and-release policies preferred by Biden.  His own party has lost confidence in Biden's ability to manage the border crisis, which Politico acknowledges [...]

6,000 Migrants in Tijuana Waiting to Rush U.S.-Mexico Border When Joe Biden Ends Title 42.  President Joe Biden's top Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials are privately admitting that up to 6,000 foreign nationals are in Tijuana, Mexico, waiting to rush the United States-Mexico border when the president ends the Title 42 public health authority on May 23.  Sources close to Breitbart News said DHS officials noted that 3,000 to 6,000 foreign nationals are in shelters in Tijuana — the Mexican city just across the southern border from San Diego, California — waiting for Biden's scheduled end to Title 42.

Tidal Wave Nears Border, but Team Biden Goes Full Steam Ahead.  A disaster is looming.  President Joe Biden appears to be going full steam ahead on ending Title 42.  This is the health policy, created in the 1940s and implemented by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention under President Donald Trump, that allowed the swift deportation of illegal immigrants during the pandemic to prevent the further spread of COVID-19.  It has been one of the few things keeping the exploding southern border numbers under even the slightest control during the Biden presidency.  The administration announced it would end Title 42 on May 23, but according to Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin, it is starting to peel it away even sooner.

The deadly cost of illegal aliens in America.  Aside from being potential Democrat voters, illegal aliens offer little to America.  We're constantly told they do the jobs Americans won't do, but that's just ex post facto rationalization.  Either Americans will do the jobs if illegal aliens won't or Congress will be pushed to change quotas for those who can enter legally.  So that's not a benefit.  The illegal aliens whose biggest criminal activity is breaking and entering into America create slums, drive down wages, destroy schools, suck up welfare, and bring new and ugly diseases into America.  They are expensive and destructive.  Meanwhile, the professional criminal element floods America with deadly drugs, engages in sex-trafficking, rapes women and children, and kills people through drunk driving and out-and-out murder.  And all of them destroy the property and livelihoods of those people unlucky enough to live along the border while Biden is destroying that border.  There is no benefit to Americans from illegal immigration.  (Planned, legal immigration is a different story.)  For the illegal aliens, the calculation is entirely different.  Once they make it into America, they get care packages, welfare, phones, free transportation, free education for their children, and health benefits, as well as being hooked into job networks for illegal aliens.

Title 42 is about more than just COVID cases.  One of the most striking things about our political class is how few have visited our southern border — including Joe Biden.  This means that, when Biden talks airily about removing Title 42 controls over entry in America, he has no idea that a lot more than COVID is coming across the border.  Some senators are taking notice. [...] Perhaps Biden would if he'd ever bothered to go to the border.  There's no indication that Biden has been to the border even once in the past decade and more.  That also means he's never met with overwhelmed local residents or our courageous, exhausted border patrol.  Likewise, Vice President Harris has never effectively acted on Biden's or our behalf in dealing with the major health, cartel-based drug- or human-trafficking situation, or the abandonment of toddlers and other children at the border.

Democrats: We'll Keep Border Barrier If Republicans OK More Legal Migration.  Democrats and their business-backed allies are hinting they want the Republicans to okay more legal migration in exchange for keeping border barriers against illegal migration.  "I don't think there's any incentive for the Republicans to deal," amid Democratic threats to lift the Title 42 border barrier against migration, responded Jessica Vaughan, the policy studies director at the Center for Immigration Studies.  "The Republicans know enough to insist on a clean extension of Title 42, not one encumbered with the Democrats' wish list items," she said, [...]

The Editor says...
This is no bargain.  There are no "border barriers against illegal migration."  The border has been all but completely wide open since Biden was given the office of President.

Tenth Migrant Bus Arrives in Washington D.C..  True to his word, Texas Governor Greg Abbott continues to send buses of illegal migrants to President Biden's D.C. doorstep.  The Lone Star gov has now sent a total of ten buses from the southern border.  "By busing migrants to Washington, D.C., the Biden Administration will be able to more immediately meet the needs of the people they are allowing to cross our border," Abbott said last week.  "Texas should not have to bear the burden of the Biden Administration's failure to secure our border."  "Abbott told 'Hannity' earlier this week that he was forced to come up with 'new ideas to do the federal government's job' as border checkpoints struggle to manage the flow of people attempting to enter the United States and amid the Biden administration's move to eliminate the Title 42 expulsion provision," Fox reports.

Still more secret migrant flights, why is Biden keeping this off the books?  Another suspected migrant flight landed in White Plains late Tuesday night, the fifth such flight in the past six days.  The iAero airlines flight WQ491 from El Paso, Texas, via Jacksonville, Fla., landed at 10:33 p.m.  The same iAero plane shuttled back and forth between El Paso and New York over Easter weekend.  On Saturday, it landed at 11:33 p.m.  On Monday it landed at 10:17 p.m.  If it were not for The Post, the public would not be aware of any of the Biden administration's charter flights, which are fanning out every night, all over the country, delivering illegal migrants from the southern border to oblivious communities.  After a lull late last year, in recent weeks "the charters are back with a fury," says a whistleblower from Avelo Airlines, one of three charter companies raking in millions of taxpayer dollars whisking migrants out of sight.  Staffers are disturbed by the secrecy of the operation, and the prospect that they are participating in a human-trafficking operation, the whistleblower says.

More Democrats Split With Biden as White House Hints at No Delay in Scrapping Title 42.  A dozen Democrats have urged for a comprehensive plan to address the expected influx of migrants at the southern border before the Biden administration ends Title 42 expulsions.  The White House said on April 20 it's "planning and preparing for the end" of the Trump-era public health order, which was implemented amid the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020 and has since been rejecting asylum-seekers at U.S. borders.  The ongoing migrant expulsions policy is set to expire on May 23 under the Biden administration, as press secretary Jennifer Psaki said current funding levels will not meet the needs of law enforcement agencies once Title 42 is lifted.  The move sparked outrage among Republicans and a growing list of Democrats, including those in tough races for November midterms seeking reelections or other positions, are breaking up with Biden on the reversal.

How America Became La La Land.  America these last 14 months resembles a dystopia.  It is becoming partly the world of George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four, partly the poet Homer's land of the Lotus-Eaters.  Nothing seems to be working.  And no one in control seems to care.  The once secure border of 2020 vanished.  Two-million people have crossed the southern border illegally in the last twelve months.  Millions more are on the way.  The Biden Administration unilaterally and simply destroyed existing immigration law.  What followed was surreal.  The administration claimed COVID was again on the horizon.  So it justified forcing American citizens to keep wearing masks in public buildings and transportation.  But at the same time, it waived all such requirements for illegal entrants.  Citizens who obeyed our laws had to mask up; foreign nationals who broke them did not need to take such precautions.

Joe Biden, strangling on his own border policies.  Joe Biden seems to recognize that he's strangling on his own border policies, and not for the first time.  This time, though, he's looking for a way out. [...] Thus far, nine Democrats from key swing and border states, who stand to lose their own congressional and Senate seats once the human waves commence, have signed on to the call to Biden to just stop, change course, do something to avoid the flood of people that's coming.  For Biden, that's a quandary.  Of course he wants to let every illegal into the U.S. as the open-borders lobby calls for.  He did that the day he entered office, issuing no-deportations executive orders for his first 100 days, breaking the U.S. treaty with Mexico signed by President Trump on forcing illegal aliens to wait out their phony claims for asylum in Mexico, ending bans on migrants from terrorist hellholes, trying to shell out $400,000 payouts to migrants separated from kids at the border, halting construction of the border wall at great taxpayer cost, and appointing incompetent Kamala Harris to play border czar, all of which triggered the ongoing border surge.

DHS answers Congressman's questions about illegal immigration under Biden; answers are terrifying.  [Scroll down]  Question 10 asks for information on "Migrants who have unlawfully entered the United States, since January 20, 2021, who (A) were apprehended by CBP" and (B) are included one a list maintained by the Federal Government relating to terrorists or individuals prohibited from boarding a commercial aircraft."  DHS answered:  "From January 20, 2021, through December 31, 2021, U.S. Border Patrol conducted 1,911,942 encounters nationwide to include 1,083,275 Title 42 expulsions and 828,667 Title 8 apprehensions."  It noted the same individual can potentially be subject to expulsion under Title 42 multiple times.  As for those on a terror watchlist, CBP Operations "has arrested 42 subjects who were on the terror watchlist and attempted to enter the United States illegally.  These numbers are inclusive of anyone who may be on the No-Fly List."

Biden's Smartphones for Illegal Aliens Shouldn't Replace Detention.  The announcement that the Biden administration is giving free smartphones to illegal aliens who recently crossed the border understandably has incensed Americans.  It brings back memories of "Obamaphones."  Although the "Bidenphone" has limited functionality and provides better immigration enforcement awareness than none at all, it underscores the better options of preventing illegal immigration and detaining those who do enter the country unlawfully.  In a nutshell, the Biden administration doesn't want to detain deportable aliens because it knows that detention is more likely to lead to deportation.  The open borders advocates have access to the same key data as the rest of the public found within the 2020 Department of Homeland Security Enforcement Lifecycle Report.  The open borders crowd knows that if illegal aliens are detained and receive a final order of removal from an immigration judge, they'll be removed 98% of the time.  The same DHS report also shows that unless a deportable alien is fully detained, 85% of them won't be removed from the U.S.

26 Governors Create Border Strike Force 'In the Absence of Federal Leadership'.  Twenty-six U.S. governors, all Republican, announced the creation of a Border Strike Force to "disrupt and dismantle transnational criminal organizations" on April 19.  The group of governors signed a memorandum of understanding, pledging to work together to "serve as a force multiplier to target cartels and criminal networks financially and operationally."  "Together, governors will improve public safety, protect victims from horrific crimes, reduce the amount of drugs in our communities, and alleviate the humanitarian crisis at the Southern Border," the agreement states.  The group includes two border states — Arizona and Texas — as well as 24 others:  Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wyoming.

Ten Democrats [are] joining Republicans in opposing Biden's plan to end Title 42.  Centrist Democrats and those up for reelection in November may have taken a hint from polls that show the public is upset with the administration's handling of the border and chosen to inch away from Biden.  More than half, 56%, of poll respondents oppose ending Title 42, according to an April 6 Morning Consult/Politico survey.  The results make Biden's decision his "most unpopular decision so far."  The conclusion of Title 42 could create an optics nightmare for Democrats months before voters go to the polls, as well as a national security concern.  Homeland security officials anticipate as many as 18,000 people a day could be encountered trying to enter the United States in the six weeks after Title 42 ends, far more than the several thousand encountered per day at present.

Border Patrol stopped 23 people on terrorist database at southern border in 2021: CBP data.  Border Patrol apprehended at least 23 people coming across the southern border whose names are on the terror watchlist in 2021, according to Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data obtained by Fox News.  Between Jan. 20 and Dec. 27, 2021, there were 23 encounters with individuals whose names matched on the Terrorist Screening Database (TSDB).  Four were in the Rio Grande Valley Sector, 4 in Del Rio Sector, 3 in El Paso Sector, 2 in Tucson Sector, 2 in Yuma Sector, 4 in El Centro Sector and 4 in San Diego Sector.  The information was provided to Fox News in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request submitted in December.

It's Not Just Joe Biden.  The United States Has A Potemkin Government.  [Scroll down]  These people are also taking precisely zero action while the United States's sovereignty, safety, and national security are deliberately sabotaged by a United Nations-assisted stampede over our border that will result in even more social strife and strain on our chronically ineffective and soon-bankrupt safety nets, not to mention likely terrorist attacks.  If they do anything, it's prattle mindlessly on TV about how immigrants are "part of the fabric of America" when our public schools and other institutions can't even assimilate native-born Americans and haven't been able to do so for decades, all while these same people and their friends have ostensibly held power.

What would be the point of impeachment if he had already resigned by then?  Asking for Nixon.
Sec. Mayorkas should 'resign and be impeached' over southern border crisis:  Tom Homan.  Seven hundred thousand got-aways since Joe Biden became president.  Seven hundred thousand people entered this country illegally and not arrested.  How many of them are in the screening database?  Just last month 67,000 got-aways.  These aren't Tom Homan numbers, these are based on camera traffic, drone traffic, and sensor traffic that border patrol records but can't respond to.  Here is what people need to be worried about.  After 9/11 we put a lot of processes in place where terrorists couldn't get into the United States.  The Visa Security Program.  The no-fly list.  The terrorist screening database.  You can't get into this country with any derogatory information at all.  You are not getting a visa and plane ticket.  Those processes mean nothing if you can walk across the southwest border unscathed like 700,000 people did.  This is a huge issue.

Report: Biden May Back Down on Ending Title 42 as GOP Sounds Alarm on Illegal Immigration.  President Joe Biden is considering backing down on plans to end the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) Title 42 — the public health authority that has doubled as a border control measure — as Republican lawmakers head to the United States-Mexico border to sound the alarm on illegal immigration.  On Tuesday [4/19/2022], a source told Axios that Biden and his top agency officials are considering not following through on their current plans to end the use of Title 42 on May 23 — a move that they admit could bring a wave of illegal immigration never seen before in American history.

Trump-Endorsed AZ Gubernatorial Candidate Kari Lake On Securing Southern Border.  Arizona Gubernatorial Candidate Kari Lake recently appeared on Real America with Dan Ball to discuss the invasion of our southern border in Arizona, where thousands are pouring into our country each day.  The Gateway Pundit reported that massive waves of illegal immigrants are preparing to storm the southern border when Joe Biden ends the Trump-era Title 42 on May 23.  18,000 people per day or over 500,000 per month are expected to invade the United States.  Many of these people are dangerous criminals and victims of human trafficking.

20 House Republicans Demand ICE Data on Arrests, Deportations Withheld by Biden.  House Republicans are demanding that Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas produce key immigration enforcement data that they argue is being hidden from the public by the Biden administration, according to a letter exclusively obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation.  The letter, sent Thursday, is led by Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, and co-signed by 19 other Republican lawmakers who argue that delayed data for fiscal year 2021 from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement showing significant decreases in arrests provided only a "limited" and "inadequate" look into the agency's enforcement and removal actions.

The unauthorized immigrant population never changes
Arrests of Illegal Aliens at the Border Surge to More Than 220,000 in March.  The number of illegal aliens arrested at the border in March hit 221,303 — the highest yet number of arrests at the border during the Biden presidency.  That's 28% higher than March 2021 when 173,277 migrants were encountered.  In March 2020, just 34,460 illegals were arrested at the border.  The number of illegals arrested at the border in March surpasses any single month during all of 2021.  There were 219,953 illegals arrested at the border in July 2021.

The Editor says...
Those numbers don't include the tens of thousands who escaped detection and capture.  Yet somehow "The number of illegal aliens in the U.S." remains unchanged at 11 million, like some immutable constant.  It is a lie:  Apparently the government lies about the numbers and the news media passes it along without question.

TX Sheriff:  Border Patrol Told Me to Be Ready for Ports of Entry Being Overrun, 'We're Talking about' Deputies in 'Riot Gear'.  During a portion of an interview with NBC News aired on Monday's [4/18/2022] edition of "NBC Nightly News," Hidalgo County, TX Sheriff Eddie Guerra (D) urged the Biden administration to reconsider its decision to rescind Title 42 and said that Border Patrol told him to have his officers ready in case ports of entry are overwhelmed and this means "deputies dressed in their riot gear with their shields and their helmets and batons to keep the crowd at bay."  NBC News Correspondent Julia Ainsley introduced her interview with Guerra by saying, "Migrants who cross through the Rio Grande Valley come through this bus station in downtown McAllen.  And officials here worry that if the numbers get too high, it could overwhelm the bus station, the shelters, leaving people with nowhere to go and sleeping on the street."

Democrats desert Biden over looming border disaster.  Centrist Democrats and those up for reelection in November are taking a hint from polls that show the public is upset with the administration's handling of the border, urging them to inch away from President Joe Biden.  Over the past several weeks, seven Senate Democrats have come out against the Biden administration's plan to terminate Title 42, a pandemic public health authority used to turn away the majority of illegal immigrants who come across the southern border.  Biden announced earlier this month that Title 42 would be rescinded on May 23.  In the two years that it has been in effect, the United States has expelled 1.6 million people through the authority, though some were turned away more than once.  But homeland security officials anticipate as many as 18,000 people a day could be encountered trying to enter the U.S. in the six weeks after Title 42 ends.  The possibility is both an optics nightmare for Democrats and a national security concern.

Mexican Cartels Fly 9,000 Drone Flights into U.S. to Surveil Law Enforcement Operations.  Mexican drug cartels have conducted more than 9,000 drone flights into U.S. airspace in the last year to surveil American law enforcement and security operations in the southern border region, a senior Homeland Security official told Judicial Watch this week.  The drones are observing federal, state, county, and city agencies near the Mexican border, including the U.S. Border Patrol, Texas Department of Public Safety, Texas National Guard, county sheriffs and local police.  The Border Patrol, which operates under Customs and Border Protection (CBP), has captured about a dozen of the drones, and accessed the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles' (UAVs) guidance and memory systems to gain intelligence information, according to a high-level official at the agency.

Biden Releases 756K Border Crossers, Population Larger than Boston, into American Communities Since Taking Office.  President Joe Biden's administration has released more than 750,000 border crossers and illegal aliens, a foreign population larger than the population of Boston, Massachusetts, into the United States since taking office in January 2021, a court brief confirms.  The brief, dated April 14 and filed in the Supreme Court by Stephen Miller's America First Legal Foundation, details the extent to which Biden's Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has put its Catch and Release network into overdrive in just a little over 12 months.

Biden White House on track to make deportations a thing of the past.  Earlier this month, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) issued a memo to prosecutors that gives them the discretion to dismiss deportation cases that they deem to be a low priority, putting the agency more in line with Joe Biden's immigration agenda.  The memo encourages ICE attorneys to dismiss deportation cases against illegal aliens and other non-citizens if they, for example, have already been living in the United States for a long period of time, do not pose a national security threat, or do not pose any public safety threat. [...] In sum, Biden wants the public to believe these actions will make the immigration system fairer and more efficient.  However, actions speak louder than words, and a cursory look at what the Biden administration has done thus far reveals what this memo is really meant to be — the latest move to effectively abolish ICE without having to actually abolish ICE.

Third Bus of Migrants Arrives in DC from Texas.  A third bus with migrants arrived in Washington, D.C., on Friday and unloaded near Union Station, just blocks from the U.S. Capitol, following orders from Texas Governor Greg Abbott.  "On April 6, Gov. Abbott ordered the Texas Division of Emergency Management to prepare buses to transport DHS-released migrants on a voluntary basis from their drop-off location to Washington, D.C.," reported Breitbart News' Bob Price.

Border Patrol says that a record 221,303 migrants were encountered at the Southern border in March.  A new record for border encounters was set last month, new data shows, as the Biden administration readies to end the Trump-era pandemic restrictions in a move critics say will result in a surge in illegal crossings from Mexico.  Former acting ICE director Tom Homan on Friday night accused Joe Biden of doing 'nothing' to deal with the issue, and pointed out that more people had died making the journey under Biden than any president he could recall.  'The Biden administration keeps saying the Trump policies are inhumane,' he told Fox News's Sean Hannity.  'Let me be clear on this.  More migrants have died under the first year of Joe Biden on U.S. soil than any year I can remember.  'A record number — more migrants are dying under Joe Biden, and over 100,000 Americans have died over overdose deaths of fentanyl comes across that southwest border.

How History Will View the Biden Years.  [Scroll down]  Biden immediately dismantled many of former President Donald Trump's border security policies.  That's not surprising from a Democratic politician.  But Biden had no replacement plan.  He took down policies that were working and didn't bother to put in place any plan of his own to secure the border.  When the predictable crisis followed, the Biden team's first reaction was to pretend that everything was fine; there was no crisis.  When you have the majority of the media on your team, you can try audacious explanations like that, but it was too much.  Like the CNN reporter proclaiming riot cities "mostly peaceful" in a camera shot with burning buildings in the background, there's a level of political spin that will just never work.  Following an election where many Democrats openly advocated for open borders and decriminalizing illegal border crossing, the political blame for the crisis at the border landed squarely in the president's lap.

Buses Arriving in DC With Illegal Aliens Blow up One of Biden's Biggest Lies and Leave the WH Babbling.  Texas Gov. Greg Abbott proved that he wasn't just fooling around or pulling a publicity stunt when he told Joe Biden that if he continued on his path of allowing illegal aliens to stream into Texas, he, Abbott, would be shipping some of the people to Washington, D.C. for Biden to have to deal with.  He made good on that promise, with the first buses showing up in D.C. this week.  Abbott said that Texas towns are just not able to deal with the huge influx anymore. [...] But Fox picked up on something interesting — the people getting off the first bus were mostly single adult males.  Remember when the Biden team claimed that single adult males were mostly being expelled under Title 42 and the people allowed to stay were largely families and children?  The tale of the bus tells something different.  [Tweet]

Liberal 2022 candidates come out against Biden's repeal of Title 42, slam admin for 'lack of a plan'.  Democrats candidates in the midterm elections are joining in the criticism that the Biden administration doesn't have a OK plan to end enforcement of the federal law known as Title 42, used during the pandemic to migrants and COVID-19 out of the U.S.  Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate Beto O'Rourke hit at the administration for what he considers failing to come up with a plan for border communities to deal with the expected surge in immigration by ending Title 42 enforcement.  "It does not make sense to end this until there is a real plan and the capacity in place to handle those and address those that come over, he told the Texas Tribune on Tuesday.  "We have yet to hear a plan from the Biden administration to address the dynamic we will have on the border once Title 42 ends."

The First Busload Full Of Illegals From Texas Are Dumped Just Blocks From The Capitol In DC.  A bus from Texas arrived in Washington, D.C. Wednesday morning, transporting dozens of illegal immigrants as part of Texas Gov. Greg Abbott's new plan to counter federal immigration policies during an ongoing border crisis.  The bus pulled up at approximately 8 a.m. local time, blocks away from the U.S. Capitol building.  Fox News has learned that they came from the Del Rio sector in Texas, after coming to the U.S. from Colombia, Cuba, Nicaragua, and Venezuela.  Upon the bus's arrival in Washington, D.C., individuals disembarked one by one except for family units who exited together.

Majorities see Biden's latest border order as huge mistake.  President Joe Biden's plan to lift Title 42, the pandemic edict allowing for the blanket expulsion of migrants entering the United States at the southern border, lacks support from not only Republicans but also the majority of independents and a significant number of Democrats across the country.  The administration announced April 1 that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention would lift the Trump-era order starting May 23, allowing for the normal processing of refugee asylum requests inside the U.S.  The administration has repeatedly stated that the order is a "public health" measure meant to stop the spread of COVID-19, as opposed to what some left-wing activists have described as a cruel immigration restriction put in place by Biden's predecessor.

Biden [is] Rolling Out the Welcome Mat for Illegal Migrants.  Illegal border crossers will no longer be treated like criminals but more like customers.  The president's fiscal budget, presented March 28, cuts funding for Immigration and Customs Enforcement by 8 percent despite an expected surge in migrants and reduces detention beds.  Meanwhile, Mr. Biden's increasing funding for a speedier service for migrants entering the country illegally, with more flights and ground transportation.  Kind of like a travel agency.  As of late May, Customs and Border Protection officials will not be able to send back migrants using Title 42, a legal tool devised to limit immigration during Covid.  Illegal immigration is predicted to surge to 18,000 people a day.  Biden isn't planning to deter it, only to accommodate it.  There will be no punishment for sneaking into the country, or what the White House prefers to call "irregular" immigration.

To Secure The Border, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott Should Shut It Down.  Amid the churn of recent headlines about inflation and the war in Ukraine, you might have missed what's happening right now on the southwest border — not the ongoing border crisis, but something very much related to it.  For the past few days, commercial traffic between the United States and Mexico has ground to a halt.  On Monday [4/11/2022], Mexican truckers blocked north and southbound lanes on the Mexico side of the Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge in Pharr, Texas.  They did it to protest Texas Gov. Greg Abbott's decision last week to order state troopers to inspect all northbound commercial trucks, something usually done by federal authorities.  The state inspections immediately caused massive delays at ports of entry all along the border, triggering a second protest by truckers waiting to cross into El Paso on Monday afternoon, with trucks blocking both northbound and southbound lanes in Juarez.

Biden's Radical Open Borders Policies Prompt Pushback.  President Joe Biden is about to blow open the floodgates on illegal immigration at the border, and the governor of Texas is vowing to push back.  "To help local officials whose communities are being overwhelmed by hordes of illegal immigrants who are being dropped off by the administration, Texas is providing charter buses to send these illegal immigrants who have been dropped off by the Biden administration to Washington, D.C.," Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said at a Wednesday press conference.  That may not resolve the issue, but at least it sends a message to Washington that this is a Washington-caused crisis that's becoming intolerable for beleaguered border states.  In response to the Texas governor, a White House spokesman said that "enforcement of our country's immigration laws lies with the federal government, not a state."  At this point, however, "enforcement" seems like a poor choice of a word for describing what the Biden administration is doing at the border.

Andy Biggs:  Biden Could Bring 30K Illegal Aliens to U.S. Border Every Day with End of Title 42.  Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) says President Joe Biden could potentially entice 20,000 to 30,000 border crossers and illegal aliens to the United States-Mexico border every day if he follows through on plans to end the Title 42 public health authority.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has announced that Biden will end Title 42 on May 23.  The authority, which serves as a border control measure, has allowed federal immigration officials to quickly return nearly two million illegal aliens to their native countries over the last two years.

Biden Admin Slows Migrant Drop-Offs in Texas After Governor Orders Them Bused to DC.  Texas officials report the Biden administration stopped dropping off released migrants in many cities across the state following Governor Greg Abbott's order to start busing them to Washington, D.C. From the Texas Panhandle to the Rio Grande Valley, Texas city officials sent the State requests for assistance in offering bus transportation for any released migrants who voluntarily want to catch a ride to the nation's capital.  The Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) dispatched multiple buses to areas where community leaders expressed concerns about the federal government dropping off migrants in their cities, TDEM spokesman Seth Christensen said in a written statement.  He said Texas "has the capability to send as many [buses] as necessary to fulfill the requests from mayors and county judges."

Psaki says no to free smartphones, paid monthly plans for US citizens, only for illegal immigrants.  White House press secretary Jen Psaki deflected from answering a question by Fox News reporter Peter Doocy during her press briefing on Friday [4/8/2022] when he asked her if the Biden administration will give Americans smartphones since they are providing them to illegal immigrants in order to track them.  Doocy asked if the administration had a "plan to give free smartphones to U.S. citizens" as they have reportedly been freely handing them out to those illegally entering the U.S.  "Should we not be tracking migrants who irregularly cross the border?" Psaki asked, expertly avoiding the question.  "Well, it'd be great if anybody that wanted a free phone and a free monthly plan could get one," Doocy sarcastically told her.  "So is that going to be an offer for everybody or just people that walk into the country illegally?"

Will Joe Biden Bring the U.S. Down With Him?  Many of Biden's gaffes and much of his political mischief fit seamlessly into the Democrat plan for the nation. [...] The situation on the southern border is an avowed catastrophe, for which the clueless Kamala Harris has taken much of the blame.  She has been roundly condemned for failing in her duty to attend to the security breach, which was her remit, when it should have been obvious that abandoning border security was the purpose all along.  Doing nothing, she did her job.  Biden's recent announcement ending the Title 42 Illegal Immigration Rule, which forced the return of more than half of illegal immigrants, is proof positive of the Democrats' abiding intention to destabilize the nation.

Has Biden become expendable?  Why are the media suddenly attacking the president when they supported many of his policies during the 2020 primaries? [...] The corrupt media called President Trump's border fence "racist" while praising Biden's promise to provide free health care for anyone crossing the southern border illegally.  With such a generous and rewarding immigration policy, the media knew that the southern border would see an explosion of illegal crossings — and so there was.  As illegal entries hit record levels, murder, drug crimes, and sex crimes skyrocketed in the border states.  Suddenly, Biden's border policy was being criticized by the propaganda media.  They were all in until things started collapsing.

Texas governor's plan to bus illegals to Washington D.C is amusing, but not practical.  Homeland Security reported that more than 2.5 million illegal immigrants crossed the southern border since Biden took over.  The Title 42 policy, that President Trump implemented during the pandemic, empowers border officials quickly to expel migrants on health grounds.  Under Biden, that will be terminated on May 23.  The migrant caravans are now massing in Central America and Mexico, and would-be illegals have told the press they are tightly focused on that day.  Once the surge of migrants makes it in the states, the migrants are then transported to poor and working-class neighborhoods.  The result is that working-class citizens either lose their jobs, or else face depressed wages because the migrants often work off the books for less than the minimum wage and don't pay taxes.  Resources such as hospitals, law enforcement, and fire services that are meager in working-class areas, are already overburdened.  Free spaces such as pavement and parks that are occupied by migrants are rendered unhygienic.

No Matter If Title 42 Stays Or Goes, A Massive Migrant Influx Is Coming.  It's a well-established fact that the U.S. border crisis began shortly after President Joe Biden assumed office and rescinded most of former President Donald Trump's border security policies.  Now, Biden and his team are working to remove one of the last lines of defenses left over from the Trump administration's border policy toolbox.  Two years ago under Trump, the Centers for Disease Control instituted a public health order called Title 42 to expedite the expulsion of illegal border crossers during the Covid-19 pandemic.  The policy was designed to prevent overcrowding in border facilities, which policymakers feared would lead to the rapid spread of Covid-19 along the border.

'It's a gimmick': [Governor] Abbott['s] plan to bus illegal immigrants to D.C. [is] slammed for being voluntary.  Texas Gov. Greg Abbott grabbed headlines Wednesday by promising to put illegal immigrants on charter buses and send them to Washington, D.C., in response to the Biden administration rescinding Title 42.  At a press conference announcing this "unprecedented" step, the Republican governor painted a picture of Texas National Guard soldiers being sent to the border in riot gear to herd migrants onto these buses, which outraged migrant and open-borders advocates.  Many conservatives and border hawks cheered Abbott's actions, but new details of the plan released by the governor's office once the TV cameras were put away show his order is much less impactful than it would at first appear.  Specifically, a press release from Abbott clarifies that the trip to D.C. will be voluntary for illegal immigrants.

Leaked DHS Document Reveals Biden's Mass-Migration Plan Offers 'Broadscale Release Mechanisms'.  The Department of Homeland Security is disseminating a mass migration plan devoid of removal mechanisms to replace the soon-to-end CDC Title 42 emergency order.  The plan predicts that DHS traditional processing capabilities will be overwhelmed and require an increase in the use of "broadscale release mechanisms."  The plan, reviewed by Breitbart Texas, acknowledges the end of Title 42 will likely result in a surge in illegal migration along the southwest border.  The increase is already manifesting itself as apprehensions rise.  In March, Border Patrol agents apprehended more than 200,000 migrants.

Migrants are being handed cell phones so ICE can keep track of them.  Republicans want Texas to declare an 'invasion' at the southern border to give permissions for state troopers and National Guard members to turn back migrants as the country braces for Title 42 to end next month.  Immigration enforcement is giving migrants who are released into the U.S. smartphones with tracking apps installed so they can keep track of released illegal immigrants.  Parole release migrants are being released into the country and are asked to turn themselves into Immigration and Customs Enforcement in a city of their choice and are being given government phones to track them.

Hundreds of Ukrainian refugees are crammed into temporary camps at the Mexico border.  Hundreds of Ukrainian refugees who fled to Mexico are sitting in a makeshift refuge at a Tijuana sports center as they wait to enter the United States, authorities said today [4/5/2022].  The facility was converted into a government shelter after some 400 Ukrainians — about 30 percent of whom are children — arrived to the northern Mexican city over the weekend.  Images show those who have fled the devastating scenes in Ukraine sleeping on the floor and waiting with their belonging — including arrays of food supplies, blankets and children's toys — strewn around tents and sleeping mats.

Thousands of desperate Ukrainians fleeing Putin's invasion pile into Mexican shelters and wait to enter America.  In the past week the number of Ukrainian refugees waiting in Mexico to seek asylum in the U.S. has swelled from hundreds to thousands, after the Biden administration agreed to accept 100,000 this year.  Many sleep on the ground in a gymnasium converted into a makeshift shelter in Tijuana, a suitcase containing their life's possessions beside them.  They await their number to be called out, when they will get the opportunity to a border agent in hopes of being granted humanitarian parole and allowed into the U.S.  Despite the surge in refugees, only about 150 are being allowed into the U.S. each day due to Customs and Border Patrol staff stretched thin.  Entrances are expected to speed up in the coming days.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott to send buses of migrants to DC ahead of surge.  Texas Gov. Greg Abbott ordered state troopers on Wednesday to begin stopping and inspecting commercial vehicles coming across the U.S-Mexico border and said bus charters would be offered to take illegal migrants to Washington, D.C., in a dig at President Biden and Congress.  With only seven weeks to go until the Biden administration lifts the Title 42 immigration order, Abbott announced multiple measures to protect his state and combat the massive influx of migrants anticipated to cross the border this spring.  "To help local officials — because communities are being overwhelmed by hordes of illegal immigrants who are being dropped off by the Biden Administration — Texas is providing charter buses for these illegal immigrants who have been dropped off to Washington, D.C.," the Republican governor said Wednesday [4/6/2022].

Texas Governor Greg Abbott Announces He Will Use Charter Buses to Send Illegal Immigrants to Washington D.C..  Texas Governor Greg Abbott will begin to use charter buses to ship illegal immigrants to Washington, D.C., as part of his strategy for the overwhelming influx of illegal immigrants.  Governor Abbott held a press conference today concerning Texas' border security efforts in response to the Biden admin's decision to drop Title 42 at the border on May 23.  Joe Biden announced that he plans to drop a Trump-era order blocking asylum seekers at the U.S. border on May 23.  Title 42 was used by President Trump in 2020 to expel migrants seeking asylum during the Covid pandemic.

Greg Abbott Announces Major 'Charter Bus' Policy for Illegals Dumped in Texas.  Republican governors have been complaining for months about how the Biden administration has been transporting illegal immigrants into their states, sometimes in the dead of night when they think no one is watching, and dumping them in areas that have already been deluged by the influx of illegal immigrants who made it across the border as the result of President Biden's disastrous open borders policy.  For instance, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis' public safety czar Larry Keefe pointed out back in November that they had discovered the Biden administration had been flying illegal immigrants into the state under the cover of darkness.  Keefe also said that when he reached out to the DHS and the DOJ find out who issued the directive, no answer was given.  DeSantis made a vow at the time to begin using charter buses to send them to Biden's home state of Delaware.

Joe Biden's hidden amnesty is already underway.  As Joe Biden asks Congress to formally grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens, his administration has already created a sort of hidden amnesty that could accomplish his extremist immigration agenda without congressional approval.  Last year the Biden administration resettled more than 146,000 unaccompanied alien children (UACs) into the U.S., a number larger than the population of many U.S. cities.  These numbers are alarmingly high, especially considering the lax vetting standards we've seen under Biden.  According to data from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Biden administration has lost track of nearly 20,000 of these illegal aliens.  Losing track of 20,000 illegal border crossers demonstrates a shocking amount of negligence, even by the low standards of this administration.  It also shows that the Biden administration is committed to the cause of amnesty, even if that means quietly resettling illegal aliens without the permission of Congress.

Miles of border [are] left unguarded as [the] Border Patrol struggles with surge.  The Border Patrol's Del Rio sector covers 240 miles of the U.S.-Mexico border.  There are days when not a single agent is actually guarding the line, said Jon Anfinsen, president of the National Border Patrol Council's Del Rio chapter.  "We've had days with no agents patrolling whatsoever.  Those that are out there are doing transportation duties, picking up groups that are turning themselves in, or doing processing," Mr. Arfinsen told Republican members of Congress on Monday [4/4/2022].

Already stretched thin, border agents must now use politically correct pronouns under new edict.  Battered by COVID-19, waves of illegal immigrants and fears of even larger surges ahead, Customs and Border Protection officers have a new burden: they must now be sure to use proper pronouns for LGBTQI+ migrants.  The new requirement was included Thursday at the bottom of a much larger announcement by the Homeland Security Department concerning changes instituted on International Trans Day of Visibility.  "Facilitating effective communication at U.S. ports of entry and beyond:  CBP has provided a job aid and memorandum to all staff that will serve as a guide for facilitating effective communication with the diverse public CBP serves, including LGBTQI+ individuals," the agency said.

Biden administration tells ICE prosecutors to dismiss cases of migrants who didn't cross border recently.  The White House is instructing federal immigration prosecutors to consider dismissing older cases of immigrants who are not public safety threats as the administration braces for massive influx of migrations at the southern border once the pandemic-era Title 42 ends next month.  An internal memo issued on Monday to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) prosecutors was obtained by BuzzFeed News, and details the latest effort from President Joe Biden's administration to reshape the immigration system.  The guidance was written by chief ICE attorney Kerry Doyle, a Biden appointee, was sent to prosecutors on Monday and represents another attempt by the agency to emphasize the discretion prosecutors have in court and lower the backlog of cases in immigration court.

Border state Democrats 'frightened' by Biden's election year Title 42 call.  The Biden administration's decision to end the public health emergency power that permitted the deportation of roughly 1.7 million migrants because of the pandemic is being questioned by Democrats before the 2022 midterm elections.  The decision to end Title 42 in May, which the White House has repeatedly attributed to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, coincides with an anticipated worst-case-scenario surge of up to 18,000 border crossings a day as migrants take advantage of warmer weather before the fall elections.

McCarthy: Biden 'abdicated his responsibilities at our border' with Title 42 repeal.  House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy on Friday accused President Biden of having "abdicated his responsibilities" at the southern border and making the ongoing migrant crisis worse after the administration announced that it is lifting the Title 42 public health order.  "Today's decision confirms that President Biden has abdicated his responsibilities at our borders and is actively working to make the border crisis worse," McCarthy said in a statement.  "From day one of his administration, he has failed to protect our nation's security and to secure the border."  The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) on Friday announced that it will be terminating the Title 42 public health policy, that has been used by both the Trump and Biden administrations to quickly expel migrants at the southern border since the start of the COVID-19 outbreak, on May 23.

Biden opens the Title 42 gates — prepare for madness.  As if the border crisis isn't damaging enough, with 2.5 million illegal migrants having crossed into the United States since Joe Biden took office, now the administration is going to make it exponentially worse by unwinding the last Trump-era restriction.  The Title 42 policy, implemented by the Trump administration during the pandemic to allow border officials quickly to expel migrants on public health grounds, will be terminated next month, the CDC announced Friday [4/1/2022].  Title 42 was the last tool border officials had left to stem the flow of illegal migration from more than 150 countries across the southern border.  Now, they are anticipating a doubling or tripling of numbers to as many as 18,000 a day.  We know what that means.  More secret migrant flights fanning out from the southern border to a town near you.

Biden Administration Announces May 23rd as Trigger Date for Open Border Migration.  As millions of global economic migrants have been flooding into Central America and Mexico, awaiting the official date for the U.S. Southern border gates to be removed allowing unfettered open border travel, the people behind Joe Biden have announced May 23rd will be the official open border date.  Officially known as the Title-42 border control effort, the prior CDC determination that blocked cross border travel based on the COVID-19 pandemic, the restriction will be removed effective May 23rd.  There are millions of global migrants backed-up below the southern U.S. border awaiting the change.  While many voices within the professional political class will deny the removal of Title-42 will result in a totally open border, those who operate the collapsing process of border security have noted it will be impossible to legally process all of the entrants, and the Biden administration have signaled they have no intent to turn anyone away for any reason.

Donald Trump says US will be 'deluged by illegal immigration' after Biden drops Title 42 border restrictions.  Donald Trump blasted President Joe Biden's repeal of a pandemic-era border restriction at a rally Saturday night — claiming the decision will result in a 'deluge of illegal immigration.'  The former president claimed at his Save America rally in Michigan that he had the 'most secure border in the history of our nation,' but warned that with Biden's ''foolhardy' repeal of Title 42, 'We will be deluged by illegal immigration.'  'We're being invaded by millions and millions of people,' Trump added, claiming that '10 to 12 million people' would flood the country if Title 42 were to be repealed — adding on to what he said has been the 'largest number of illegal immigrants' entering the country.

Joe Biden [will] Open the Border on May 23.  President Joe Biden's deputies have announced they will lift the Title 42 barrier at the southern border on May 23, allowing a vast wave of wage-cutting, rent-spiking migrants into America's job and housing markets.  "We are increasing our capacity to process new arrivals, evaluate asylum requests," said a statement from Alejandro Mayorkas, who heads Biden's Department of Homeland Security and is trying to build an extra immigration system that operates alongside annual limits set by Congress.  The formal announcement implies that the president will not block the border-opening plan by his deputies.

Who came up with the plan — the "deputies," or the alleged President?  Who is really in charge of the Executive Branch?

Border Patrol Has Already Picked Up 1 Million Illegals in 2022.  According to a source within U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Border Patrol agents have already apprehended more than one million illegal aliens in the southwest sectors in Fiscal Year 2022. The benchmark was reportedly reached on Thursday, the source told Breitbart News. [...] Another growing problem is the number of "migrants" from Cuba.  In February, roughly 16,550 Cubans were apprehended along the southwest border — a spike of more than 300 percent, compared to February 2021. Moreover, fewer than 100 of the 16,550 Cubans arrested in February were ordered out of the country, per the Remain in Mexico program.  As those interested in such things — that should be all of us — might recall, Biden formally ended the Remain in Mexico program in June 2021, after suspending it earlier in the year.

Get Ready for a Border Surge the Likes of Which Our Country Has Never Seen.  Open borders advocates — including those who serve in the Biden administration and on Capitol Hill — have been demanding that President Biden end Title 42 since the day he took office during a full-blown pandemic.  Title 42 is a public health provision that was invoked by the Trump administration in 2020 at the onset of the COVID pandemic, allowing for the expedited removal of people crossing our borders illegally.  While it is impossible to quantify a negative, it is reasonable to assume that preventing significant numbers of people traveling in large groups and coming from countries where vaccination rates were low to nonexistent, saved a lot of lives.  Despite its success, many in the Biden administration have always viewed Title 42 not as an essential public health policy, but an obstacle to mass migration.

The border: 'No imaginable scenario' to avoid another disaster.  The chief of the U.S. Border Patrol, Raul Ortiz, recently said his officers have encountered 1 million illegal border crossers in the first six months of fiscal year 2022 — that is, since Oct. 1, 2021.  That is a big increase over fiscal year 2021, when there were 1.734 million encounters in the entire year.  And that was a big increase over fiscal year 2020, during the pandemic, when there were 458,000 encounters, and fiscal year 2019, when there were 977,000 encounters, which was a record high at the time.  Now, with 1 million in just the first half of the year, and with the peak migration months not yet begun, the Border Patrol is overwhelmed.

Obama's DHS Secretary Calls Biden Border Crisis 'Unsustainable'.  How bad is Joe Biden's border crisis?  It's so bad that Barack Obama's former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson called it "unsustainable" on MSNBC Wednesday [3/30/2022].  A day earlier, the Department of Homeland Security reported that they were anticipating 18,000 illegal immigrant encounters daily — especially after Title 42 is removed.  "The border is a tough issue.  I am waiting to see when and if they drop Title 42 for the southern border.  It is the, frankly, a way to keep the numbers down, although these numbers are pretty high," said Johnson.

Biden's border surge plan is worse than it looks.  Joe Biden knows there's a border surge coming.  He's expected to drop Title 42 COVID restrictions on illegal entrants as of May 23 and the human waves are expected to at least double from what was seen last year.  Some two to three million illegal border crossers are forecast to make landfall in the United States and with no fear of deportation, and establish themselves here permanently.  Right now, in just one Texas corridor, at Eagle Pass, some 7,000 illegal border crossers from 157 countries are rolling through daily.  That number is expected to soar to 18,000 a day once Title 42 is gone.

Now even Democrats urge Biden not to drop Title 42: Senators warn there isn't a proper plan in place for 'mass migrant event' on May 23.  Now Democrats are coming out against President Joe Biden ending Title 42, breaking with the party by claiming the administration doesn't have any alternatives in place to quell the impending mass migration influx.  New Hampshire Senator Maggie Hassen tweeted Wednesday [3/30/2022]:  'I am concerned that there is not a sufficient plan in place to address the steep increase in border crossings that could result from this reported decision.'  'This preemptive repeal threatens border security at a time when the administration should be focused on strengthening it,' she added.

Illegal immigrant population soars to 11.4 million.  The number of illegal immigrants in the U.S. soared by more than 1 million last year, reaching 11.4 million as of this January, according to new research released Tuesday that puts new contours on the border chaos under President Biden.  The surge is the largest in two decades and is among the largest single-year increases in U.S. history, said Steven A. Camarota of the Center for Immigration Studies, the lead researcher who wrote the paper.  He used Census Bureau numbers to calculate the trajectory of the unauthorized population, figuring there were about 11.5 million in January 2019, that figure plummeted to 10.2 million by the start of 2021, then soared to 11.4 million at the start of this year.

The Editor says...
In my opinion, the illegal alien population in the U.S. is probably around 30 million, but the news media has been saying "11 million" for at least the last 20 years, regardless of how many record-breaking months of illegal entry we've seen.

Border State Democrats Beg Biden: 'Consider Dangerous Impact' Illegal Immigration Has on Our Communities.  More elected Democrats, representing America's border communities, are pleading with President Joe Biden to enforce Trump-era border controls to protect their constituents from a massive wave of illegal immigration.  On Wednesday [3/30/2022], Biden officials spoke anonymously to the Associated Press, revealing that the administration has plans to end the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) Title 42 order that gives federal immigration agents broad authority to quickly return border crossers and illegal aliens to their native countries.

Just in time for midterms, Joe Biden sets off the mother of migrant surges.  The U.S. Border Patrol expects a record surge of migrants from 157 countries crossing our border illegally with most presenting spurious claims to "asylum." [...] Joe Biden has set the conditions for an even bigger surge — on two fronts.  One is in his executive order to replace immigration judges with newly created "asylum officers" brought in from the NGO open-borders ranks, to make decisions on asylum claims.  These are people you can bet will rubber stamp all asylum claims, regardless of what the law says.  The second incentivizer is in Biden's expected decision to scrap Title 42, an erratically employed executive order that allows Border Patrol agents to deport back illegal crossers on COVID concerns.  Based on the numbers of COVID-spreading migrants [...], it's pretty obvious that that order was only used on some migrants.  Now, it won't be used on any of them if the rule is rescinded on May 23, which seems likely following whatever recommendation the CDC puts out as its de facto union masters direct.

Biden administration to scrap Title 42 border policy by May 23 despite warnings: reports.  The Biden administration is planning to scrap a Trump-era public health policy restricting illegal immigration by May 23 — despite repeated warnings from Democratic lawmakers who represent border states, according to multiple reports.  White House director of communications Kate Bedingfield did not confirm the plans reported by CNN and the Associated Press when asked by reporters Wednesday [3/30/2022], referring the matter to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  "Title 42 is a public health directive," Bedingfield said.  "It is not an immigration or migration enforcement measure."  "We have every expectation that when the CDC ultimately decides it's appropriate to lift Title 42, there will be an influx of people to the border," Bedingfield added.  "And so we are doing a lot of work to plan for that contingency."

Biden Administration to Lift Title 42 Border Policy Allowing Immediate Deportation.  The Biden administration will end the Title 42 public health order that allows border agents to immediately expel illegal border crossers, according to multiple reports.  The order was initially handed down under the Trump administration in the early days of the Covid pandemic, and renewed by the Biden administration in August 2021.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will order an end to the Title 42 policy this week, people familiar with the plans told the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times.  A draft of the new order reviewed by the Journal states that "there is no longer a serious danger" that migrants could spread Covid in border detention facilities.

DHS preparing for unprecedented Title 42 border rush of up to 18,000 migrants per day.  A couple of weeks ago we learned there was concern within the Biden administration that Title 42, which allows the border patrol to quickly remove immigrants on health grounds, might be allowed to expire this week.  And if that were to happen there was concern that the already high numbers of migrants at the border would spike.  The situation was worrisome enough that Sens. Sinema and Kelly of Arizona sent a letter asking to see the Biden administration's plan for dealing with the potential crisis that could unfold if Title 42 were to abruptly end.

50 people flee from semi-truck in McClain County.  Authorities are investigating after dozens of people jumped out of the back of a semi-truck during a traffic stop.  On Monday night [3/28/2022], law enforcement attempted to pull over a semi-truck near I-35 and Hwy 59 in McClain County.  When the truck pulled over, officials with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol say between 50 and 75 people jumped out of the truck.  At this point, investigators believe the people are undocumented immigrants.

The Editor says...
Hmmm.  Yes, they might be "undocumented immigrants," also known as illegal aliens.  Brilliant deduction, Sherlock — particularly since nobody else acts like that.

The Sheer Madness of Today's Left.  The southern border since late January 2021, for all intents and purposes, has ceased to exist.  That is unless we are talking about Cuban and Russian refugees who seem to the Left to be too politically independent to embrace as victim constituents needing left-wing permanent government patronage.  Yet the midterms loom.  One of the most unpopular of Joe Biden's initiatives is his welcoming of nearly 2 million impoverished, unvaccinated, unaudited, and untested illegal immigrants to cross the southern border.  By any fair measure, Biden deliberately violated his oath of office by failing to enforce U.S. immigration laws.  Political agendas outweighed his own promises to uphold the sanctity of federal law.  Yet he fears polls.  Of all the Biden failures, the southern border and illegal immigration seem to infuriate Americans of all persuasions the most.

Biden Is Failing in the Courtroom, Too.  [O]n immigration, Biden, his agencies, and his policies have been getting clobbered in federal courts across the land.  Since his inauguration, Biden has fared about as well in court as Michael Spinks did against Mike Tyson in the boxing ring.  The latest knockout took place this week, when an Ohio federal district court granted a preliminary injunction against Biden's orders that prevent U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents from arresting and deporting most of those in the country illegally.  While in office for just over a year, the Biden Administration has also lost cases on controversies including stimulus checks for aliens, COVID expulsions, H1-B visa fraud, lawless reentry into the country, the Migrant Protection Protocol's (MPP) "Remain in Mexico" policy, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, and removal orders for illegal aliens.

As Midterms Approach, Dems Suddenly Want More Border Security.  As encounters at the southern border continue to increase, and midterm elections approach, Democrats seem to be shifting their messaging on border security.  The Daily Wire's Ben Johnson joined Georgia Howe and John Bickley for Thursday's episode of "Morning Wire" to explain Democrats' changing strategy on the border.  Johnson highlighted President Joe Biden's "surprising" mention of border security during his "State of the Union" address on March 1.  He also mentioned that "the message has filtered down through the party ranks.  The newspaper Roll Call, which covers Capitol Hill, ran a story on Tuesday, titled 'Democrats Emphasize Border Security as Midterms Loom.'"  Democratic House members like Abigail Spanberger (VA) and Elissa Slotkin (MI) are supporting tighter border security "through technology or by hiring more Border Patrol agents," Johnson said.

Biden will welcome 100,000 of the 3.6 Million Ukrainian refugees fleeing Putin's war following criticism he wasn't doing enough.  The United States will accept up [to] 100,000 refugees fleeing the war in the Ukraine, the Biden administration announced on Thursday [3/24/2022].  The announcement came during President Joe Biden's trip to Europe where he's meeting with leaders of NATO, the G7 and the European Union in three back-to-back emergency sessions to deal with Russia's invasion of the Ukraine.  It's meant to help ease the humantarian criss taking place in Eastern Europe, where nearly 3.5 million Ukrainians have fled their bombarded country in one of the biggest refugee crisises since World War II.  Refugees have flooded into Europe and some have even made their way to the southern border of the United States, trying to enter the country that way.

Texas Dept. of Public Safety Lt.: 'This Year's Going to Be Catastrophic' on the Border and Worse Than 2021.  On Friday's [3/18/2022] broadcast of the Fox Business Network's "Evening Edit," Texas Department of Public Safety Lt. Christopher Olivarez said that "we thought last year was complete chaos" on the border, but "this year's going to be catastrophic."  And that "we have the most unsecured border that we have seen in decades."  Olivarez said, "[A]t this time, right now, we have the most unsecured border that we have seen in decades. ... Last year, for fiscal year 2021, between the months of February through October, there were over 397,000 encounters.  Now this year alone, fiscal year 2022, same timeframe, five months, from October through February, over 837,000 encounters.  That goes to show you that when we thought last year was complete chaos, this year's going to be catastrophic.  These numbers are going to surpass last year's numbers.  And we need to brace ourselves, but I'm telling you right now... this is a very — national security threat, not only to the state of Texas, but to the entire country."

Texas Lawmaker Blasts Biden's Open Borders for Illegal Immigration, Fentanyl Crises.  Americans in every state — not just those in the southwest — should be concerned about President Joe Biden's lack of border security and the resulting drug crisis, a Texas congressman says.  "Every state is a border state now," said Rep. Brian Babin, R-Texas.  "I think the government has spent about $350 million this past year on transportation costs to let people come across the southern border, whether it be Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, or California, and fly them or bus them all over our country."

Illegal Southwest Border Crossings Surge to 158K in February.  Migrant apprehensions in February jumped to nearly 160,000 after declining one month earlier.  U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials announced on Tuesday that Border Patrol agents apprehended 158,132 migrants who illegally crossed the border between ports of entry, according to CBP's Southwest Land Border Encounters report.  The apprehensions represent an increase over the previous year's February report when agents apprehended only 97,643 migrants, the largest number of migrants apprehended in February since 2000.

Axios: Biden administration fearful of "mass migration event", set up war room operation.  The Biden administration knows it has a looming "mass migration event" in the very near future when it ends the use of Title 42 at the southern border.  The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) quietly set up the Southwest Border Coordination Center (SBCC) to coordinate its response.  Think of it as a war room to game out the coming flood of illegal migrants to the southern border.  I say that SBCC was quietly created because before the reporting today by Axios, the war room wasn't reported on in the media.  The reason for the nervous preparation for a mass event is because with the pandemic essentially ending, at least as far as government mandates go, Title 42 will soon end and illegal migrants won't immediately be expelled because of public health policy.  Implementation of Title 42 was recommended by the CDC to President Trump when the pandemic began.  It allows Border Patrol agents to immediately expel illegal migrants without hearing asylum claims.

Biden sued for withholding info on controversial migrant housing contracts.  A nonprofit watchdog group has sued the Biden administration for its failure to turn over documents that explain how massive government contracts to detain migrants at the border were awarded to a former Biden transition team member.  The Washington-based American Accountability Foundation on Wednesday filed two lawsuits against the departments of Health and Human Services and Homeland Security for not releasing documents about contracts each department gave to the nonprofit organization Endeavors last spring.  The AAF submitted two Freedom of Information Act requests 11 months ago for all communications in an effort to determine if there was a "quid pro quo" between government officials and a former Biden official, Andrew Lorenzen-Strait, following the Washington Examiner's investigation in March 2021.

Biden Weakens Border As Illegal Crossings, Cartel Unrest Grows.  U.S. Customs and Border Protection reported 164,973 encounters with illegal crossers at the Southern U.S. border in February, putting the border agency on track to exceed 2 million apprehensions in the 2022 fiscal year, an all-time record.  Of these February encounters, more than 75 percent, 126,151, were single adults.  That number is up 11 percent since January when CBP documented 113,132 apprehensions of single adult border crossers.  While apprehensions of individuals in family units decreased 17 percent from 31,998 in January to 26,582 in February, CBP encounters with unaccompanied children increased by 37 percent, to 12,011, leaving an average of 520 children in custody each day in February.

Reality is catching up to Biden on the border.  If President Joe Biden's Department of Homeland Security was proud of its record on immigration enforcement, its annual U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement operations report would have come out as it normally does: shortly after the fiscal year ended last September.  But Biden doesn't want voters to know just how radically he has changed this nation's immigration enforcement policies.  So the fiscal 2021 report was delayed for months and months until its release last week.  It confirmed what every immigration observer already knew:  Deportations have plummeted under Biden.

Rep. Chip Roy to Seek Impeachment Proceedings Against DHS Head Mayorkas.  Rep. Chip Roy (R-Texas) will attempt to bring impeachment proceedings against Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, documents obtained by The Epoch Times show.  The move caps off a full year of Republican dissatisfaction with Mayorkas, who as the DHS secretary is in charge of border security.  In the past year, the United States has seen unprecedented levels of illegal immigration.  Estimates of how many illegal aliens have entered the country since Biden took office vary, but U.S. Customs and Border Protection data show that about 2 million people illegally crossed the border in 2021, a nearly fourfold increase from illegal crossings a year earlier.  In addition, deportation rates have plunged under Mayorkas' leadership of the DHS.  In 2021, 68 percent fewer illegal immigrants were deported in comparison to 2020; Compared to 2019, the DHS deported 78 percent fewer illegal immigrants.  Responsibility for the situation, according to a letter penned by Roy's office to GOP leadership, lies squarely with Mayorkas.

Officials Assail Biden Inaction: 'Mexican Cartels Basically Control Our Border Now'.  As the fentanyl crisis ravages the country, elected officials and former border protection and drug enforcement officers are calling on the Biden administration to take action to secure the U.S.-Mexico border.  "If you look at the age group of people between 18 and 45 over the past year, the leading cause of death is not COVID.  It's not cancer.  It's not car wrecks.  It's not guns.  The leading cause of death with that age group is fentanyl, and it is devastating," Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said during a panel discussion hosted by The Heritage Foundation on Thursday [3/10/2022].

Border Patrol Apprehends 165,000 Migrants in February, Up 60 Percent from Previous Year.  U.S. border agents encountered 164,973 migrants at the southern border in February, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection data released on Tuesday [3/15/2022].  The number marked an over 60 percent increase from February 2021, which saw 101,099 encounters at the U.S.-Mexico border.  "February... registered a slight uptick in the number of encounters along the Southwest border, with most individuals arriving from Mexico and the Northern Triangle, and the majority of noncitizens expelled under Title 42," CBP Commissioner Chris Magnus said in a statement.

200 Migrants [were] Released by Feds to NGO Shelter in Texas near Border.  Federal officials released approximately 200 migrants in less than an hour to a shelter in the Texas border community of Eagle Pass.  The migrants observed by Breitbart Texas all appeared to be adult single males.  A bus operated by U.S. Customs and Border Protection pulled up in front of the Mission Border Hope shelter on late this week to drop off a group of migrants.  After a brief confrontation with shelter managers, Breitbart Texas filmed approximately 50 migrants being released by the federal agency into the border community.

ICE announces massive drops in arrests, deportations.  The Biden administration slashed interior immigration arrests by about half compared to the Trump years, according to an overdue report released Friday that details the massive changes at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.  ICE said it made 74,082 arrests in fiscal year 2021, down from more than 103,000 the previous year and more than 143,000 in 2019.  Actual deportations also plummeted to 59,011.  Under former President Barack Obama, those numbers topped 400,000 in some years, and under former President Donald Trump, they topped 300,000 in some years.  Deportations of gang members dipped by more than 50% compared to the middle of the Trump years.

Border Breakdown:  Treason, Not Incompetence.  In this episode of "Beyond the Cover," host Gary Benoit interviews the story's author, R. Cort Kirkwood, who makes a very strong case that the border breakdown is by design, not incompetence, and that the word treason is apropos.  He also explains why the political elites have effectively erased the border.  [Video clip]

Top 10 ways Biden deluded himself during his State of the Union.  Three million people from around the world trying to illegally break into the country is an invasion he is ignoring.  He handed control of the border to the ruthless cartels, and even demonized horseback border patrol agents falsely accused of whipping illegal migrants.  He boasted about "joint patrols with Mexico and Guatemala to catch more human traffickers," but his administration is providing an essential link in the trafficking chain when it flies illegal migrants secretly around the country in the dead of night.

NY Times:  Democrats Flip to Republican in 'Political Upheaval' of Border Towns.  A couple of years after former President Trump made significant gains in often Hispanic-majority Democrat counties along the United States-Mexico border in Texas, a wave of Democrats in one particular community are switching parties to join the GOP.  In Terrell County, Texas, the New York Times reports that multiple elected officials are opting to run — for the first time — as Republicans rather than as Democrats in a "quiet political upheaval" across U.S. border towns, fueled mostly by rising crime and constant waves of illegal immigration.

7 Major Failures of the Biden Presidency.  [#1] The Border Crisis:  Security at the southern border has been an ongoing disaster, though one barely given coverage by the legacy media.  The massive spike in border crossings initially was excused by Biden allies in the media as a "seasonal" problem.  It was seasonal all right:  open-borders season.  Since Biden took office, a historic surge of migrants has crossed the border illegally in numbers that are the highest in decades.  And the problem isn't abating.  According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, U.S. agents logged 153,941 migrant encounters in January.  This was double the number of encounters the previous January, and quadruple the number from the January before that.

Texas ranchers turn down Biden aid for illegal immigration damages.  Texas ranchers are rejecting an offer from the federal government to cover property damages resulting from illegal immigration and drug smuggling, fearing the aid will come with strings attached and won't help with the underlying problems at the border.  A Department of Agriculture initiative to pay landowners across the state for a wide array of losses they sustained due to a surge in trespassers traveling from the border north into Texas is being met with skepticism and calls for President Joe Biden to secure the border.

Memo sent to CBP agents on southern border asks for volunteers to go to Poland.  A memo to Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers working on the U.S.-Mexico border asks for volunteers to temporarily work in Poland to assist Ukrainian-Americans, legal U.S. residents, and their immediate families fleeing Russia's invasion.  At first glance, this seems like another ridiculous idea coming from the Biden administration.  It probably is but it is following how DHS handled processing Afghan refugees just six months ago.

Del Rio is new center of border crisis with 31,000 migrants stopped in January.  The remote border town that made headlines last September as tens of thousands of Haitians crossed into it from Mexico has become the top destination for migrants and the epicenter of the border crisis.  Last month, 30,773 people were encountered illegally crossing the border in Border Patrol's Del Rio sector, which spans 240 miles of the 2,000-mile U.S.-Mexico boundary.  For each of the town of Del Rio's 34,673 residents, one noncitizen was taken into custody.

Biden border crisis: 14 Republican attorney generals call for Mayorkas to resign.  Homeland Security Secretary Mayorkas has failed to do his job to secure the southern border so fourteen Republican attorneys general are calling for his resignation.  They wrote to Mayorkas on Tuesday demanding his immediate resignation.  It's an exercise in futility since Mayorkas is simply carrying out Biden's orders.  The Biden border crisis is by design.  Since his first day in office, Biden has worked to undo every policy and program used by the previous administration on the issue of illegal migration.  Biden put a freeze on deportations and stopped the Remain in Mexico program, for example, though those actions have been the subject of legal action from border states.  Florida AG Ashley Moody is leading this effort.

Report: U.S. Immigrant Population Hits Record 46.6 Million.  The U.S. population of legal immigrants and illegal migrants hit 46.6 million in January, up roughly 1.6 million since President Joe Biden was inaugurated, according to federal data posted by the Center for Immigration Studies.  "The 46.6 million immigrants (legal and illegal) in the country in January 2022 is the largest number recorded in any government survey or decennial census going back to 1850," the CIS says in a report released on February 23.

DHS eyes more welfare for legal immigrants as Supreme Court hears challenge.  The Biden administration has moved to make it more attractive for immigrants to sign up for welfare, laying down a marker just days before the Supreme Court is slated to take up the issue in a legal challenge seeking to restore stricter Trump-era rules.  The Homeland Security Department released a proposal to raise the bar for becoming a "public charge."  Joining programs such as Medicaid won't be counted against most immigrants, it said.  Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said immigrants "will not be penalized for choosing to access the health benefits and other supplemental government services available to them."

Biden to pay Texas ranchers, farmers for migrant damages, offers nothing new to stop the flow.  The Biden administration, after pressure from ranchers and farmers, has agreed to reimburse Texan landowners for damages caused by illegal immigrants, but failed to address the ongoing crisis at the border.  The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced Wednesday that they would be releasing funds through the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) to provide financial assistance to farmers and ranchers on the southern border.  The funding for this endeavor come from the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) "which provides financial and technical assistance" to "address natural resource concerns."  The concerns in question are the "damage to fields and farming infrastructure, including fencing and water structures."

Supreme Court Takes Up Review of 'Remain in Mexico' Policy.  The Supreme Court on Friday [2/18/2022] agreed to hear President Joe Biden's request to terminate the Trump-era "Remain in Mexico" policy.  Formally called the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), the program requires the federal government to send migrants back to Mexico while their asylum hearings are pending.  "The case will be set for argument in the second week of the April 2022 argument session," the Supreme Court wrote.  Biden's Department of Homeland Security (DHS) suspended new enrollments into the MPP during his first month in office last January.  A legal battle ensued when Biden's DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas issued a memo terminating the program in June.  Then, Texas-based federal Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk ordered Biden to "enforce and implement MPP in good faith" following a lawsuit from Texas and Missouri.

The Biden Border Solution:  More Facilities to Get Migrants in Even Faster.  [Scroll down]  "The decision was made, according to the document, after analyzing surge patterns from migrants.  The permanent facilities will replace temporary facilities in the same sectors.  The sectors in the memo have faced some of the highest numbers of migrants in the entire country.  Del Rio, for example, saw more than 259,000 migrants apprehended in the 2021 fiscal year," WFB adds.  This is the exact opposite of a solution — it doubles down on crazy.  And it doesn't exactly address Agent Garza's concerns about human trafficking and drug smuggling.

7,000 U.S. Doctors [are] Sidelined Every Year by Foreigners Winning Taxpayer-Funded Residencies.  Every year, more than 7,000 American citizens and green card-holders lose out on United States taxpayer-funded residencies to foreign nationals despite having earned their degrees as medical graduate physicians, bombshell congressional testimony reveals.  Kevin Lynn with Doctors Without Jobs unveiled the data to the House Judiciary Committee's Subcommittee on Immigration and Citizenship on Tuesday, sounding the alarm on "graduate medical education profiteers."  "Each year, over 7,000 U.S. citizens and lawful permanent resident medical graduate physicians — with include seniors and prior-year graduates — do not match for a medical residency, all of whom are qualified, ready, and willing doctors who have been sidelined and are waiting to serve their communities now," Lynn said.

Joe Biden, Alchemist?  [Scroll down]  Competing with this failure was the Biden failure at the border.  Distilling this mess was even trickier, because most of Biden's supporters believe that he successfully turned a secure border into a golden open one.  So again, Biden was the proverbial alchemist who insisted that his own pig iron policies actually created a 24-karat border, albeit unperceivable to ordinary Americans.  Most Americans polled expressed their horror at the idea of nearly 2 million pouring across the border — illegally, without means of support, unvaccinated and untested in a time of pandemic, without English or skills, cutting ahead of patiently waiting legal applicants, unvetted with no idea how many had criminal records.  All that required more of Biden's alchemy to turn that dross into glitter.  As a result, we were told that apprehensions for a time were up (e.g., if you let in millions and detain only a small fraction, that tiny number can still exceed the sum of detentions during times of a secure border with almost no illegal crossings.)  Then we were told it was the fault of Mexico and Central America — as if for the first time in history they dared to export human capital to rein in $60 billion in annual remittances.

'Ghost Flights': The Mystery of the Migrant Kids the Feds Are Spiriting Into the U.S. Interior.  After months of delay, the Department of Homeland Security replied late last month to a Congressional demand for information about the number of illegal migrants the department has flown from border towns to communities around the country.  In 2021, it said, 71,617 were dropped off in nearly 20 cities including locales as far from the Mexican border as Atlanta, Chicago, New York and Philadelphia.  Immigration experts critical of the Biden administration's permissive immigration policies believe those numbers are incomplete, especially regarding the most vulnerable migrants, those under 18, whom DHS classifies as "unaccompanied children."  The agency says some 40,000 of the total transported are such minors, but that number is only a fraction of the 147,000 "encounters" the agency reports having with unaccompanied migrant children at the southern border between January and October 2021.  Paramount among the questions raised by the transports is what happens to the unaccompanied children once they leave the airport?  The major cities DHS lists, the experts say, are probably simply way stations rather than final destinations.

2K Migrants Cross into One West Texas Border Sector in 2 Days.  Del Rio Sector Border Patrol agents apprehended more than 2,000 migrants during a 48-hour period in what is becoming the nation's busiest sector.  Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Jason D. Owens tweeted photos showing groups of migrants being apprehended after they illegally cross the border from Mexico into Texas.  The chief reported his agents arrested more than 2,000 migrants, including unaccompanied children, in a 48-hour time frame.

Time to worry: the Biden government is redefining core principles.  [Scroll down]  And just yesterday, Townhall's Spencer Brown caught a significant change to the mission statement for U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services:  The old version:  ["]U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services administers the nation's lawful immigration system, safeguarding its integrity and promise by efficiently and fairly adjudicating requests for immigration benefits while protecting Americans, securing the homeland, and honoring our values.["]  That's straightforward enough:  America is a nation of laws, some of which govern immigration, and the USCIS is responsible for enforcing those laws fairly and in a way that protects Americans and America.  The new version is much shorter:  ["]USCIS upholds America's promise as a nation of welcome and possibility with fairness, integrity, and respect for all we serve.["]  Suddenly, USCIS is unconcerned with the rule of law and unconcerned with protecting Americans.  It is, instead, an organization that exists to make life easier for the millions of illegal aliens the Biden administration is encouraging to enter America and then, once they are in America, funding and resettling in districts that willfully refuse to vote for Democrats.

If saving money is the goal, keep them out of the country at the first opportunity.  But that's not really the goal.
Biden is planning on putting single migrant adults caught on the Mexican border under house arrest in Baltimore and Houston.  The Biden administration is looking to place hundreds of migrants under part-time house arrest, as a cheaper alternative to holding them at detention facilities amid record-high crossings at the U.S.-Mexico border.  The 120-day pilot program will begin in Houston and Baltimore, where 100 to 200 single adults placed under house arrest in each location, according to a notice sent by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and reviewed by Reuters.  The so-called 'home curfew' pilot would cost just $6-8 per day, far less than the $142 daily cost of immigration detention.

I am in favor of the "home curfew" plan — provided that the "home" is on the other side of the border.

Miranda Devine On DHS Flying Illegal Migrants:  This Just Looks Like A Federal Government "Scam".  Fox News Contributor Miranda Devine discusses DHS flying illegal migrants to different parts of the U.S. in the middle of the night and who Biden's potential pick to replace Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer:  "Last October we went and staked out Westchester airport after a tipoff that these planes were coming in, and we saw three of them come in.  We followed the buses, we saw that they were disgorging these illegal migrants at one point into a rest stop in New Jersey to be picked up by supposedly family or so-called sponsors.  There didn't seem to be any vetting of these people.  I mean, it just looks like a deliberate scam to get as many people away from the southern border as quickly as possible by the federal government so that the optics down there don't look terrible.  And they are flying them all over the country, as you said, whether it be California, Louisiana, New York, New Jersey.  There are flights going every single day, charter flights, and it is costing, you know, tens of millions, probably hundreds of millions of dollars. [...]"  [Video clip]

Trump Border Chief Reveals 'Invasion' at Southern Border.  The crisis on our southern border continues to get worse by the day, critics say.  Washington's failure to control illegal immigration is resulting in an influx of drugs and gang violence that makes the country less safe.  Mark Morgan, acting commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection during the Trump administration, is furious that a solid southern border has been transformed into the Wild West in the first year of the Biden administration.

Reuters: Joe Biden Delivers Latino Child Labor to Slaughterhouses.  The Reuters news agency has exposed one small corner of the federal government's extraction of debt-trapped child workers from poor countries for use in low-wage, low-tech, dangerous workplaces.  From Enterprise, Alabama, the news agency reported on a teenager who was delivered by federal officials to an Alabama home close to a chicken processing company: [...]

Mexican authorities evict Tijuana migrant camp near border.  About a hundred members of the police, National Guard and army on Sunday evicted 381 migrants, mainly Central Americans and Mexicans, from a makeshift camp they had been staying in for almost a year in Tijuana at the U.S. border crossing.  The migrants' tents around El Chaparral crossing were demolished with the help of excavators and trucks while their inhabitants loaded their few belongings into bags and suitcases to be transferred to three local shelters.

Can the Border Patrol survive Joe Biden?  The Biden administration has transformed and imperiled the mission of the Border Patrol through migration policies that have led to a crisis at the southern border, current and former agents say.  Border Patrol agents broke protocol to claim in interviews with the Washington Examiner that their jobs have been remade since President Joe Biden took office a year ago.  They say that they have been redirected from fulfilling a law enforcement and national security role to working as though they were in an Ellis Island-style welcome center.  Four of the agents agreed to speak anonymously about their concerns even though doing so risks termination.  The rising frustration among agents has also manifested in leaked videos of the rank and file in angry confrontations with leadership in recent private meetings.  Still other agents have had enough and have quit the agency, anticipating that matters won't change in the next three years.

Independent journo exposes who is funding illegal immigrant flights.  Independent journalist Ali Bradley interviewed Sister Norma Pimentel of Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley concerning the non-governmental organization's funding of airline tickets for illegal immigrants and how taxpayer money is being used to subsidize it.  The reporter previously interviewed Sister Pimentel in August.  The revelation concerning the NGO sparked further outrage over the Biden administration facilitating the transporting of illegal immigrants from the southern border to towns and cities across the nation.  The administration has been secretly flying them in the dead of night without notice for months.  Catholic Charities appears to be supporting the illegal activity on moral grounds.

Catholic Charity Admits Receiving Money From Biden Administration to Traffic Illegals Across U.S..  The leader of the Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley (CCRGV) has admitted their organization is taking federal money to traffic illegal aliens across the U.S. after they invade the border.  "We got lucky to be reimbursed for some of the efforts that we have been doing for so long and that's good and that is taxpayer money," said Sister Norma Pimentel, who works as CCRGV executive director.

What's the deal with Biden's 'ghost flights' of illegal aliens?  Is the Biden administration quietly importing large numbers of illegal aliens through midnight flights?  That would be a reasonable conclusion based on recent reports about the Biden administration's resettlement process.  The White House is being accused of chartering flights for hundreds of "mostly minor-age" illegal aliens to Pennsylvania, according to a report.

Illegal immigrants [are being] smuggled inside portable toilets.  Border Patrol agents found 14 illegal immigrants stuffed inside two portable toilets last week and arrested an American man who said he was being paid to smuggle them deeper into the U.S.  Agents sniffed out the smuggling operation after receiving a report of a drone incursion near McAllen, Texas.  When they responded, the agents found a pickup truck pulling a flatbed trailer with two portable toilets.  The truck refused to pull over at first but eventually yielded, and when agents approached, they said they saw shoes through a partially open toilet door.

DeSantis strikes against Biden immigration policy with amended lawsuit.  Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Attorney General Ashley Moody filed an amended complaint saying the Biden administration's latest immigration policy is unlawful.  The new policy, called "Parole + Alternatives to Detention," releases illegal immigrants within the borders of the United States without starting a legal process for removal.  The complaint states that federal immigration officials are assisting migrants in resettling around the country and that the Transportation Security Administration is "accepting immigration arrest warrants as identification sufficient to board a domestic flight."

Calls for DHS Secretary to Be Impeached.  The Heritage Foundation's new president and its homeland security team are calling for Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to be impeached by Republicans if he will not step down due to his terrible handling of the ongoing crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border.  The think tank is the latest conservative heavyweight to call for impeachment as Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) says he will lead the charge of impeaching Mayorkas if Republicans take back Congress in the upcoming midterms.  It also comes after Mayorkas' disastrous meetings with Border Patrol agents stationed at the southern border, where agents vented their frustrations at the Biden administration's open border policies and they leaked audio and video of the tense meetings to the media.  In addition to the high number of illegal crossings agents have had to deal with in 2021, they were frustrated they have been unable to arrest hardened criminals and seize drugs, like fentanyl, because they are often bogged down with processing family units and children who willingly gave themselves up.

Leaked video shows federal contractors flying migrants to suburban NY.  Leaked video shows migrants being transported on secret charter flights under the cover of night from southern border states to Westchester, New York.  "The government is betraying the American people," a federal contractor told a Westchester County police officer in a conversation recorded on the officer's body camera on the tarmac of a Westchester airport on Aug. 13, 2021.  The footage was obtained via a Freedom of Information Act request by former Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino.  Reports first surfaced of such flights back in October when the New York Post captured video of the scene at the airport in White Plains, New York.

Biden's Apathy Toward His Drug-Plagued Border Crisis Is Killing People.  Drug overdoses in the U.S., many fentanyl-related, reached record highs in 2021 and are on track to cause more deaths in 2022 as President Joe Biden ignores his ongoing crisis at the southern border, which is responsible for a large portion of drug trafficking in the nation.  Biden and his team at the White House are intentionally ignoring the growing border crisis even though since the beginning of the 2021 calendar year, border officials arrested more than 2 million illegal aliens, often aided and funded by the United Nations, at the southern U.S. border.  Already, Customs and Border Protection data indicates that apprehensions on the U.S.-Mexico border in the 2022 fiscal year will exceed 2 million.

Biden Encourages Massive Illegal Immigration and Tries To Hide It With Secret Flights.  The Biden administration doesn't want media attention on illegal immigration, its open border policies, or the results of those policies.  How do we know?  A security officer just said so, in an explosive video of secretive, dark-of-night flights transporting illegal immigrants to various points throughout the U.S.  This video merits coast-to-coast media coverage, not just to expose the administration's stealth operations that flout the laws, but to encourage Americans and leaders at all levels of government to demand that the administration start protecting our border, our country, and our citizens.

Video Shows 4 Busloads Of Illegals, Mostly Young Males, Being Dumped Into Florida.  Dozens of single, mostly male adult migrants were shuttled from a makeshift processing center in Texas to a local airport for flights to various US cities — marking the first time such a transfer has been captured on video amid the ongoing border crisis, according to a report Tuesday.  The scene began unfolding Sunday outside a parking garage in Brownsville, where a makeshift processing center was set up in a vacant office, Fox News said.  A video recording shows a line of men and women being escorted into the office, after which some of them left and got into taxi cabs that arrived to pick them up.  [Video clip]

Cartels Have Operational Control of US Border, Are 'Terrorizing' the US, Says Rep. Chip Roy.  Mexican cartels are making billions of dollars from drug trafficking, human smuggling, and exploiting the U.S. border, Rep. Chip Roy (R-Texas) said.  Border Patrol agents apprehended more than 1.3 million illegal immigrants crossing into Texas from Mexico in 2021, while hundreds of thousands more weren't captured.  Seizures of the deadly synthetic opioid fentanyl have sharply increased, as have overdose deaths in the United States.  "We have 100,000 Americans die from opioid poisonings.  They're not really overdoses — they're poisonings," Roy told NTD's "Capitol Report" on Jan. 28.  "China is moving it through Mexico, cartels are making money, China is getting empowered, America's getting hammered — all because this administration refuses to do its job of securing the border."

The brains behind Biden's border disaster.  Before Afghanistan, before inflation, before omicron, President Joe Biden's first failure in office occurred at the southern border.  In March, Biden tried to claim that the flood of migrants illegally crossing from Mexico was just a seasonal blip , but that talking point quickly expired.  By April, even CNN was calling the situation at the border a crisis, and by the end of his first year in office, a record 2 million migrants were arrested while illegally crossing the border.  Another 2 million are expected next year.  The cause of Biden's border crisis is obvious to any honest person:  On his first day in office, Biden ended the "Remain in Mexico" program that former President Donald Trump had created to close a loophole that migrants were exploiting in our asylum process.  With this loophole reopened, migrants began exploiting it again.  According to a New Yorker profile published this week, this never occurred to the staff Biden appointed to implement his immigration policies.

What will it take for Biden to stop sneaking illegal migrants in the US?  Border agents are in open revolt, slamming Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Border Patrol chief Raul Ortiz when they visited to try to boost morale.  "You're allowing illegal aliens to be dropped off in communities," one fumed.  Security contractors for the administration's secret flights are outraged, too, with one calling the operation "the government betraying the American people."  A [New York] Post exposé got the flights to Westchester stopped, while revealing that the migrants brought in include clear adults as well as the minors Team Biden claimed.  But the operation continues across the country.  This seems to be Biden's real answer to the flood of more than 2 million migrants who've entered illegally in his first year:  Publicize the few you send back, while spreading the rest out, including single men with criminal records such as assault and drug possession.  Indeed, fresh video from San Antonio, Texas, shows young men streaming in with the feds' aid.

GOP states sue to stop Biden's special program for Central American kids.  Republican attorneys general broadened their legal battle against President Biden's immigration policies in a new lawsuit announced Friday that challenges a federal program to shortcut the smuggling journey and bring children directly from Central America.  The Central American Minors program, or CAM, allows people already in the U.S. to petition to bring their children legally even if the parents jumped the border to get here.  The Biden team says the program is a recognition of reality — the children are surging here already, usually braving a torturous trip that can involve assault, rape and sickness, so eliminating the need for that trip can save lives.

Joe Biden, enemy of America.  From the moment Joe Biden stepped into the Oval Office as president it became clear that he stole the job in order to destroy America from within. [...] He stopped the construction of the southern border wall, costing more jobs and leaving millions of dollars' worth of equipment rotting in the desert.  Biden would not even let Texas use the construction materials themselves; any wall would impede the Biden plan to import over two million migrants from around the world, to be given funds and to spread them throughout the nation into unsuspecting cities. [...] As those Border Patrol and ICE agents can attest, Biden is now a full partner in collusion with the drug and human traffickers that are the cartels.  In fact, Biden is probably, it's fair to say, the largest sex and human trafficker on the planet right now.

Biden covers up huge influx of illegal migrants.  Last summer I was notified of secret overnight flights coming into Westchester County Airport that were transporting thousands of illegal immigrants apprehended at the southern border.  Having overseen the airport during my tenure as county executive, I knew that flights arriving after midnight are not allowed so I started asking questions publicly.  Who are on these planes?  Have they been vetted and COVID tested?  How many flights so far and how many more are scheduled?  Where are these illegal immigrants being placed and who is paying for all this?  Have background checks been done, especially on the adults?  What happened next was entirely predictable.  I and other local residents were called "racist" and "xenophobic" simply for asking questions.  Seemingly, neither the current county executive nor the governor cared or had any interest in knowing what was happening in their jurisdiction.

What to make of Biden secretly transporting illegal aliens into the US.  Two days ago, the New York Post reported the following:  "Under cover of darkness, every night the federal government is transporting illegal migrants as fast as it can away from the border on secret charter flights into unsuspecting communities around the country.  Officials have lied and obstructed the few journalists who have tried to reveal the truth."  This has been an old Democrat project.  They begin by inviting illegal immigrants either explicitly or implicitly through various public forums.  They then allow numerous illegal aliens into the country by opening up the border.  Since these migrants are uneducated, unskilled, and impoverished they depend on government welfare for their survival.  This makes them a permanent underclass who the Democrats think will be perennially subservient to them.  Many of these migrants eventually are transferred to locations where Republicans traditionally win.  The Democrats know they can never convince conservatives to vote for their radical left-wing policies.  So they drown the impact of these resident voters by giving voting rights to a sufficient number of migrants to facilitate a Democrat win.  Soon they plan to have a permanent presence in the House, Senate, and the White House.

Single Adult Male Migrants Cross the Border with No ID, Given a Notarized Paper.  Rep. Kat Cammack (R-Fla.) said Wednesday [1/26/2022] that the groups of single adult male migrants being transported to other parts of the country are "not the family units" that the Biden administration "has played in front of cameras, saying these are people fleeing desperate situations."  Instead, many don't undergo background checks or even have identification.  They just get "a notarized piece of paper" saying "I am who I say I am," and they're able to board a plane and go anywhere in the United States, the congresswoman told Fox Business's "Mornings with Maria Bartiromo."  "This is not the family units that is the administration has played in front of cameras, saying these are people fleeing desperate situations.  No, there are a lot of young single-adult males that have crossed, and I personally have seen them at the border myself.  The background checks are certainly not sufficient," she said.

'Betraying the American people': Leaked video reveals Joe Biden's 'hush hush' migrant invasion.  While Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi go all out to protect Ukraine's national sovereignty, at the same time they are orchestrating a clandestine invasion of America across the southern border.  Two million illegal immigrants from dozens of countries crossed over from Mexico last year, and the Biden administration is facilitating the cartels' people-smuggling operation — at taxpayer expense.  Under cover of darkness, every night the federal government is transporting illegal migrants as fast as it can away from the border on secret charter flights into unsuspecting communities around the country.  Officials have lied and obstructed the few journalists who have tried to reveal the truth.  This is nothing short of a betrayal of the American people.  And that's not just me saying it — those are exactly the words of one federal government contractor employed to transport migrants from the southern border to the airport in White Plains.

Reaction to the article above:
"I Told You So" Doesn't Even Begin To Do It.  [Scroll down]  I'm quite certain this would be an impeachable offense were Donald Trump still president. [...] But he, and we, were called "racists" and demonized as "deplorable" haters.  Deplorables standing in the way of them lining their pockets and giving our country over to global rule.  So let ME be clear:  "undocumented" — a euphemism for illegal alien — isn't a race, it's a criminal.  So stop calling me a racist for objecting to 25 million criminals being dispersed throughout our country.  We're being overrun by people whose primary interest in this country is getting better stuff for free courtesy of the American taxpayer, and we've got an old man at the wheel yelling at the sky about the end of the world because... weather.  When you live in a country where you can get arrested for fishing or hunting without a license or for trying to eat in a restaurant without your vax card but not for entering the country illegally... well, your country is being run by a bunch of idiots.

The Biden Thug Gang Are Using ICE To Relocated and Release Countless Illegals, Mostly Young Men Into The US.  Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations have been turned into an "unofficial travel coordination agency," and agents are made to coordinate travel for some illegal immigrants with criminal records, an ICE source told Fox News on Wednesday [1/26/2022].  The ICE official was reacting to Fox News' reporting that single adult illegal immigrants are being quickly processed and released into the U.S. in large numbers via a hub in Brownsville, Texas.  Fox News footage showed several federally contracted buses dropping off dozens of mostly male migrants at a parking garage in Brownsville, Texas.  Black tarps were set up with a makeshift sign that said "Border Patrol drop-off" above it.  [Video clip]

Tag Team:  Kamala eggs on illegal immigrants from Honduras, Joe sneaks them in back home.  It's doubtful that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris like one another, but there seems to be a coordinated effort between the two to bring in more illegal immigrants to the states, something they are succeding at rather spectacularly.  How else do we explain Kamala Harris's trip to Honduras, to attend the presidential inauguration of radical left-wing presidenta, Xiomara Castro, while Joe Biden's minions are sneaking in illegals by the thousands away from the cameras and flying them at taxpayer expense to their destinations of choice?  Biden's turned the immigration enforcement agencies into a concierge, valet and taxi service for illegals.  Kamala, meanwhile, is down there to bring in corporations and NGOs to enable.

Biden Admin Caught Allegedly Releasing Large Number Of Single Adult Illegal Aliens Into U.S..  Fox News reporter Bill Melugin caught Democrat President Joe Biden's administration allegedly releasing a large group of single adult illegal aliens into the United States in Texas.  "Fox witnessed men go into a small, unmarked office, then re-emerge moments later as multiple taxi cabs then showed up to collect the migrants — who were then shuttled off to nearby Harlingen Airport.  There were no children or migrant families among the groups," Fox News reported.  "Several of the migrants told Fox that they had crossed illegally that morning, paying approximately $2,000 per person to cartel smugglers.  They also said they were flying to destinations including Miami, Houston and Atlanta."  The city of Brownsville told Fox News that it works with the Biden administration to to facilitate "the transfer of these migrants to their final destination by allowing them to use services to contact their families, NGOs, or a taxicab."

It's Not Just Illegal Aliens Our Southern Border Guards Against.  Back when he assumed office, President Biden essentially implemented an open borders policy.  It's been a disaster on top of his other disasters, with millions of illegal invaders flooding into the country from around the world in the middle of a pandemic.  Day by day, additional threats are emerging that illustrate that he needs to change course before it's too late. [...] The world is getting more dangerous by the day, with bad actors from around the world gearing up to take full advantage of Biden's weakness, if not downright dementia.  The open southern border would be the perfect avenue to wreak havoc with law enforcement tasked with babysitting over border security.  Even worse, the coyotes running the smuggling operations along the border can simply distract the Border Patrol at one point to bring in far more dangerous people or contraband at another.

Tennessee bill would relocate illegal immigrants to Biden's hometown.  A Tennessee bill filed Wednesday [1/26/2022] would relocate illegal immigrants to the hometowns of President Joe Biden and other top Democratic leaders who are overseeing the border crisis.  Tennessee state Rep. Bruce Griffey introduced the bill in an effort to highlight the need for increased border security.  "The Biden administration is quietly moving thousands of illegals to various states, including Tennessee, by putting them on planes and buses and transporting them in the middle of the night, and we should return them to their sender," Griffey said in a statement.  "I imagine that if we relocated them to the backyards of those responsible for allowing the flood of illegal immigration across our border, then those with federal power might be more apt to secure the border and secure it quickly."

DHS Secretary Had a Disastrous Meeting with Border Patrol Agents.  Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas' meeting with Border Patrol agents in the Yuma Sector on Wednesday did not go well after he admitted the staggering number of illegal border crossings has made the agents' job more difficult.  In an audio recording of his remarks to the agents, which was obtained by Townhall, Mayorkas conceded the massive influx of people illegally crossing into the sector, along with the rest of the southern sectors, has not been easy.  "The job has not gotten any easier over the last few months and it was very, very difficult throughout 2021.  I know apprehending families and kids is not what you signed up to do.  And now we got a composition that is changing even more with Cubans, Venezuelans, Nicaraguans, and the like, it just gets more difficult," Mayorkas said in the recording.

Illegal Immigrant Apprehensions Reach 20-Year High in Biden's First Year.  U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents apprehended more than 2 million migrants at the southwest border during President Joe Biden's first year in office, likely the highest number in over 20 years, according to a National Review analysis of CBP data.  According to the data, agents encountered 2,033,863 migrants at the border in 2021, with the vast majority — more than 1.9 million — being apprehended by U.S. Border Patrol officers.  The rest were apprehended by Office of Field Operations agents at U.S. ports of entry.

Biden official:  American interest in Ukraine is ensuring borders are "inviolate".  A fun leftover from yesterday and our latest entry in the Someone Left The Irony On Department.  With brinksmanship escalating between the US, the European Union, and Ukraine, CNN's John Berman asks a solid question: why should Americans care about the fate of this country on the eastern edge of Europe?  Jonathan Finer, deputy national security adviser to Joe Biden, says we should be all about enforcing border security and recognizing national sovereignty. [...] This administration refuses to address our own border crisis that Biden and Kamala Harris touched off with their campaign rhetoric and bungled policy reversals.  They won't even talk about it now, trying their best to distract from the tsunami of migration that is still overwhelming our border security apparatus.

Democrats suddenly value border security, just not the US border.  Nancy Pelosi is even more agitated tonight than usual.  On a conference call just hours ago, Pelosi demanded that her members vote immediately on a piece of legislation she says is critical to our national security.  The bill she's talking about, among other things, affirms the central importance of national borders.  Well, of course, it does.  Without a border, you can't have a country.  And Nancy Pelosi firmly believes that.  In fact, she believes it so strongly she's directing the Biden administration to develop an urgent new plan to keep the border secure.  In fact, not simply secure, but in the words of the new legislation, Section 208, inviolable, meaning impossible to breach.  Walled up and buttoned-down.  Bulletproof.  That's quite a border.  But why wouldn't it be?  When it comes to borders, Nancy Pelosi isn't messing around.  Are you surprised to hear this?  Well, you may have misunderstood.  Pelosi isn't talking about the U.S. border, the one that's currently open.  She's talking about the Ukrainian border, the one that actually matters.

DHS encountered a record 2 million illegal immigrants on southern border in 2021.  Homeland Security recorded more than 2 million encounters with illegal immigrants at the southern border last year, shattering previous records, as the Biden administration relaxed the country's immigration policies.  The department released final December numbers on Monday and announced a snap visit by Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to the border later this week to try to take stock of the situation.  He'll likely hear the grim details from agents themselves:  The numbers have never looked worse for border illegal activity.

Now the UN is 'helping' rejected migrants recover 'repressed memories' to get asylum status.  Todd Bensman, who's doing yeoman's work on the international rackets enabling big migrant surges at the U.S. border, has found the United Nations at the nexus of the matter, aiding and abetting illegal immigration into the U.S., and not for the first time. [...] How very convenient.  And how very phony.  So many rejected migrants now have repressed memories of torture and political persecution that all of them now qualify for asylum status in the states.  All they have to do is visit one of these United Nations-funded chop shops and they'll cook up a good narrative for them to present.  The 'science' of 'repressed memories' has long been a controversial matter, given that most of it is junk science.
