Immigration  Issues

Introduction:

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.

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.

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]

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.

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 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.

The Editor says...
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.

The Editor says...
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, DailyMail.com 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.

The Editor says...
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.

The Editor says...
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.

The Editor says...
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.

Unsustainable:
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 DailyMail.com 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.

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.

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 DailyMail.com 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.

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."

The Editor says...
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.

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.

Here's a train of illegal immigrants who crossed the border while you were eating lunch.  [Tweet]


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.

The Editor says...
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.

"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.

Why does the United States host and support the United Nations, while the UN is actively undermining the U.S.?

On Crime, You Must Ask The Right Questions To Get Good Answers.  Herman Cain was fond of saying that you need to ask "the Right Questions."  His point was simple.  If you saw a car slammed into a tree, you didn't worry about what color it was. [...] In short, you had to consider what was most important at the moment, and then proceed to other questions only as the more important ones were answered.  A classic example of failure to do this was Vice President Harris's assertion that we had migrants crossing our southern border illegally because of climate change at home.  If we assume that climate change is real and has bad effects, she might be right about it having some minor effect, but there won't be any migrants who agree with her.  They all risked their lives to find a better life in a freer country than they had at home.  The Chief Cackler flunked the first rule by never asking any questions, much less the right ones.

The Editor says...
I have questions for VP Harris:  Why would the climate change in every country but the U.S. — so severely that thousands of people had to move here?  Does climate change stop at the Rio Grande?  Why can't the climate refugees stop in Mexico?  How did you get your job, and how do you keep it?

The TSA's stunning admission about how illegal aliens board American planes.  In response to a congressman's request for information based upon a whistleblower's tip, the TSA admitted that illegal aliens are allowed to fly even if the only identification they have is an arrest warrant or warrant of removal from DHS related to their illegal status.  So, while you're flashing the REAL ID driver's license that was a total pain to obtain, the illegal alien in front of you just shows his arrest warrant.  That'll teach those illegal aliens not to break into our country. [...] Someone who is in the country illegally shouldn't have the privilege of hopping onto an airplane.  Even as Joe Biden has made masks mandatory and is contemplating forcing vaccines on air travelers, illegal aliens have been flying around America as if they own it.  Once again, leftists are punishing American citizens and legal residents, while at the same time making it clear that people who are illegally in this country get special treatment.  I don't believe that America has ever before suffered a governing class that despises the people it governs.

Border Sheriff: 'Extremely Organized' Large Groups of Illegal Aliens Sneaking Through Texas County.  Traveling at night with backpacks and dark clothing, large groups of up to 50 illegal aliens, mostly young men from Mexico, are clandestinely traversing this small Texas county doing everything possible to avoid getting caught.  While small groups have been crossing the U.S.-Mexico border into Kinney County, Texas, for years, now it's large, well-organized groups that have law enforcement worried.  "It's extremely organized," Kinney County Sheriff Brad Coe told The Epoch Times on Jan. 18.  "And the groups are getting bigger.  Even if you run a group of 25 and they get caught, you're tied up, so you can run your group of 50 and 60 somewhere else.  Or you can run your drugs through."

The Border Crisis Is Bad, But In Mexico A Larger Crisis Looms.  [Scroll down]  And it's not as simple as cartels versus the government because the two groups often overlap.  Last March, a former mayor of the town of Aguililla, about 50 miles south of Tepalcatepec, was arrested in Guatemala on a U.S. warrant for allegedly brokering a $4 million deal on behalf of the United Cartels.  The plan was to ship a half-ton of methamphetamine to Florida, hidden in concrete tiles and house paint.  With the assistance of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, the former mayor was taken into custody in Guatemala City and the drugs in Florida were seized.  It was the largest meth seizure in Miami-Dade County history.  Hours after the arrest, CJNG attacked Aguililla in force.  According to some reports, 26 people were killed in what amounted to a massacre.  Eight of them were decapitated.  Cartel violence of this sort is getting worse in Mexico.

Tim Perry out as chief of staff at ICE.  Timothy Perry is out as chief of staff at ICE amid questions over the deportation agency's plummeting arrest numbers.  U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement confirmed his departure but did not give a reason for the sudden change.  One law enforcement source said Mr. Perry was ousted by Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas over concern about ICE's enforcement numbers, which show a serious deterioration in the agency's operations over the last year.

It is as if Cloward and Piven are in charge of the border.
Biden buries immigration courts in 'avalanche' with 1.6 million pending cases amid border crisis.  The number of immigration cases waiting to be decided in federal court has increased at a faster rate under the Biden administration than under any other president, according to a report published Tuesday by a nonpartisan research organization.  Nearly 1.6 million people have cases pending in the U.S. immigration court system, the most ever recorded in history, according to the Transnational Records Access Clearinghouse, an affiliate of Syracuse University in New York.  The dramatic increase means illegal immigrants will wait years before having their claims decided, and that is expected to grow worse as the southern border crisis intensifies.  Of the total number of backlogged cases, 305,427 cases were added to the docket since March 2021, when the number of noncitizens illegally crossing the southern border from Mexico surged to the highest levels ever seen.  The onslaught of cases has buried the fewer than 500 immigration judges nationwide in an "avalanche."

Human Smugglers Earn $1B from U.S.-Mexico Border in December 2021.  Internal U.S. Customs and Border protection documents reviewed by Breitbart Texas report that human smugglers received up to $1 billion in December 2021 alone.  On average, migrants claimed to have paid smugglers more than $5,000 per person — with more than 170,000 apprehended in the month.  The number is likely much higher considering more than 400,000 migrants are believed to have eluded Border Patrol apprehension in 2021.  The document shows migrants, on average, paid more than $8,000 each to human traffickers in the San Diego sector.  Migrants interviewed in the Del Rio Sector admitted to paying slightly more than $4,000 per person.

Illegal Bushmeat Confiscated From Travelers At MSP Airport.  U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers say they have confiscated bushmeat multiple times since December at the Minneapolis-St.  Paul International Airport.  CBP said officers seized over 100 pounds in the last week of December from U.S. citizens returning from Liberia.  The trend "could have deadly effects and lead to another outbreak of disease," a release said.  The passengers declared "fish" on their written and verbal declarations, but upon further inspection, officers found fish and bushmeat in the same package.  The Minnesota Department of Agriculture says bushmeat is raw or minimally processed meat which comes from wild animals such as monkeys, cane rats, bats, and other nonhuman primates.  The meat, which is often smoked, dried, or salted, poses a risk of human infection and the spread of Ebola virus.

Pennsylvania State GOP proposes bill to divert 'secret' migrant flights to Biden's home state of Delaware.  Pennsylvania's Republican-led state senate has plans to put forth a bill that would divert flights carrying migrants across the U.S. to President Biden's home state of Delaware.  The bill would implement a 'transportation program' to address the 'unauthorized relocation' of undocumented migrants to Pennsylvania.  'If the federal government is not willing to provide extra dollars to communities that have experienced increased strain on their healthcare systems, increased number of students in school districts and education costs and other services within our communities, then they shouldn't be forced to take on more illegal immigrants and the additional financial responsibility,' state Sen. Mario Scavello of Mount Pocono wrote in a memo announcing the legislation.

Pennsylvania Republicans to draft bill to relocate migrants on Biden DHS flights to Delaware.  Republicans in the Pennsylvania State Senate plan to draft a bill that would relocate migrants entering the state on Biden administration-sponsored flights to the president's home state of Delaware.  State Sen. Mario Scavello, a Republican from Mount Pocono, issued a memo to colleagues asking them to support the forthcoming bill.  "In the very near future, I intend to introduce legislation to address the influx of illegal immigrants being relocated into Pennsylvania," Scavello wrote, adding that his legislation will be fashioned after similar intentions voiced by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.  The legislation would implement a transportation program for the relocation of migrants from the commonwealth to the neighboring state of Delaware, according to Scavello's memo.

Texas judge rules apprehension of illegal immigrant by soldiers along Rio Grande was Unconstitutional.  A county judge in Texas dealt a blow to Governor Greg Abbott's controversial 'Operation Lone Star' after ruling his national guard's apprehension of an illegal immigrant unconstitutional Thursday.  Operation Lone Star was created by Abbott amidst a wave of illegal immigrants from Central America crossing the US-Mexico border.  It deploys law enforcement in areas human and drug smugglers are known to use.  The ruling could see the initiative stifled with attorneys saying that it could open a path for other immigrants to challenge their detention.

Biden's Immigration Policy Should Infuriate Hispanics.  Believing they can gain votes needed for a permanent majority, Democrats engage in a cynical practice of open borders that is harmful to those who attempt the trip.  At least 650 individuals died while attempting to cross the U.S.-Mexico border in 2021, with hundreds others either unaccounted for on land or lost attempting to reach Florida by sea.  Many thousands suffered abuse, including rape, at the hands of gang members.  Even after arriving, illegals may be forced into indentured service of some kind.  A border policy constructed around vote-getting is bound to fail, and Biden's border policy is a catastrophe.  Under President Trump, the border was quickly secured and the flood of illegal migrants halted.

Homeland Security Launches 'Climate Change Professionals Program' Amid Historic Illegal Border Crossings Surge.  The Department of Homeland Security has announced a "climate change professionals program" while the historic number of illegal border crossings continues to increase.  Officials expect illegal crossings at the southern border to hit 2 million in 2021 for the first time in history, but DHS officials announced a program to tackle the "growing focus on adapting to climate change and resilience."  "The Climate Change Professionals Program will be instrumental in helping the Department adapt to our changing climate by providing hands-on experience and guidance to young professionals interested in climate adaptation and resilience," said Secretary Mayorkas.

DHS Cannot Account for 50K Migrants Released in 2021.  Data released by the Department of Homeland Security show more than 50,000 migrants released by the agency with instructions to report to ICE once at their desired U.S. location have failed to do so.  The Notice to Report (NTR) process was instituted to help the Border Patrol ease detention facility overcrowding in 2021.  The federal disclosure covers the period between March and August 2021.  Of more than 270,000 migrants released by DHS, roughly 104,000 were placed in the NTR system which trusts the migrant to voluntarily report to ICE at their intended U.S. destination to begin the deportation process.

American Taxpayers [were] Charged Millions to Provide Illegal Aliens with Free Lawyers.  American taxpayers, often unbeknownst to them, are being charged to the sum of millions to provide illegal aliens in various cities with free legal representation, an investigation exclusively shared with Breitbart News reveals.  The Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI) reviewed expenditures for cities that have implemented a deportation defense program that provides illegal aliens and foreign nationals with free legal representation to fight their deportations from the United States.

Obviously, it isn't "free legal representation" if somebody is paying for it.

We haven't LOST control, we have FORFEITED control.
Former Border Commissioner: 'We Have Lost Control of the Southwest Border'.  The southwest border during President Joe Biden's first year in office reached historic levels of illegal crossings, pulling agents off the front line and leaving large swaths of the border unpatrolled.  Drugs, especially fentanyl, flowed in, and overdose deaths are at an all-time high.  "What we're experiencing now on the southwest border is a complete, utter catastrophe," Mark Morgan, former acting commissioner of Customs and Border Protection (CBP), which oversees Border Patrol, told The Epoch Times on Jan. 7.  "We have lost control of the southwest border."  During the 2021 calendar year, Border Patrol agents apprehended close to 2 million illegal immigrants from 150 different countries along the southwest border — more than double 2019, the last pre-pandemic year, according to CBP data.  Last year, Border Patrol agents detected, but didn't catch, an additional 600,000 illegal border crossers, known as "gotaways," Morgan said.

Biden Frees Record Number of Illegal Aliens into U.S. via 'Catch and Release'.  President Joe Biden has released a record number of border crossers and illegal aliens into the United States interior via a little-known federal program used as part of a larger "Catch and Release" policy.  As of late December 2021, Biden has placed about 150,755 border crossers into the government's Alternatives to Detention (ATD) program, wherein border crossers are apprehended and quickly released into the U.S. interior with minimal tracking.  In some circumstances, ATD simply places ankle monitors on border crossers before releasing them into the U.S. interior.  Border crossers often tear the ankle monitors off.  In other circumstances, ATD asks border crossers to report to the government via telephone or be monitored by a smartphone application.

Biden Withholds Annual Report on Deportations.  The Biden administration has yet to release a report that details the number of illegal immigrants removed from the United States in 2021, keeping the public in the dark about its handling of the immigration crisis.  Immigration and Customs Enforcement did not release its annual report in 2021, a departure from standard agency practice since at least 2011.  In each of the last nine years, ICE released the report in the final weeks of the calendar year, most recently on Dec. 23, 2020 during the Trump administration.  It is unclear whether ICE has completed the report, which provides a lengthy summary of the agency's enforcement and removal operations, as well as immigration-related security threats.  A spokeswoman for the immigration agency told the Washington Free Beacon a release date for the report has not been determined.

New DHS data reveals the border is no longer a Mexican problem.  The old model of illegal immigration along the southern border was shattered in 2021, according to data released by the Department of Homeland Security this week that shows the demographics of the typical border jumper have been completely rewritten.  Mexicans, who for decades represented the overwhelming number of illegal immigrants, dropped to 28% of the flow, their lowest share "in recorded history," according to Customs and Border Protection.  Meanwhile, the number of women and girls jumping the border soared to nearly 400,000, more than doubling the average in recent years.  The figures were released in a belated fiscal 2021 data dump from Customs and Border Protection, which included a warning that the shifting demographics are making jobs more challenging for immigration agents.

Flights carrying illegal immigrants [are] now landing in Pennsylvania: reports.  Pennsylvania has become the latest location where flights filled with illegal immigrants are being flown under the cover of darkness, according to reports.  At least five flights carrying the illegal immigrants landed at airports in Scranton and Allentown late last month from Texas, local outlet WFMZ reported.  Former GOP Congressman Lou Barletta, who is running for Pennsylvania governor, claimed the flights were sent at night by the Biden administration.

Biden's First Year:  Illegal Immigration to U.S. Outpaces Populations of Major American Cities.  President Joe Biden's first year in office has resulted in record illegal immigration to the United States and defiance to constructing new border wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.  By the end of the month, analysts project that nearly two million illegal aliens will have attempted to cross the southern border since Biden took office — hundreds of thousands of which have been released into the U.S. interior.

White House asks Supreme Court to intervene in Remain in Mexico legal battle.  The Biden border crisis is entirely self-made.  Joe Biden put a halt to the Trump administration's border security policies in the first days of his administration.  Those executive actions along with his campaign promises of blanket amnesty, no deportations, and ending construction of the border wall all came together before he was even inaugurated to create the current humanitarian and public health crisis on the southern border.  Biden governs as a member of the open borders wing of the Democrat Party.  One of the first policies to be nixed by Biden was the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), commonly called the Remain in Mexico policy.  In January 2019 the Trump administration installed the Remain in Mexico policy in cooperation with the Mexican government.

Federal judge rules immigration law provision unconstitutional for 'disparate impact on Latinx persons'.  Federal courts are now wrestling with the underpinnings of an immigration law provision and whether or not it is racist.  A federal judge in Nevada ruled that Section 1326, a law making it a felony to reenter the United States after being deported, is unconstitutional.  The Department of Justice has appealed the case, now sending it to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.  Judge Miranda Du, an Obama appointee, issued the original order in August saying the law was passed with racist antecedents and discriminatory intent against Latinos, violating the Equal Protection Clause.

The Editor says...
Hmmm.  I wonder why nobody in the Congress noticed the law was unconstitutional while they were voting on it.

Liberal Judge Rules Ousting Illegal Aliens Who Reenter the Country 'Racist' and 'Unconstitutional'.  It may surprise you to learn that the most common type of case federal prosecutors bring is not for drugs or fraud, as many think.  As reported by The Washington Times, that honor goes to cases against illegal aliens who try to reenter the country after having been deported.  And almost all those charged are Hispanic, of course.  Now, according to The Times, federal courts are facing the ridiculous question of whether the "imbalance" in deportations means U.S. immigration law is [...] racist.  Ridiculous?  One court in Nevada has ruled it means exactly that.  Judge Miranda Du, an Obama appointee [no kidding?], said the section of immigration law that makes it a felony for an illegal alien previously ousted to sneak back into the country "has racist antecedents dating to the 1920s."  This is insane.  Though the law has been updated since then, noted The Times, Congress has never "confronted the racist, nativist roots" of the law, Du ruled.  She said that fact — coupled with the overwhelmingly Hispanic targets for prosecution — makes the law unconstitutional.  This is beyond insane.

Senate Republicans Move to Ban Federal Funds From States, Cities That Allow Illegal Aliens to Vote.  Let's begin with a basic premise that should be supported by every loyal citizen of every country on the planet:  Non-citizens should not be allowed to vote in elections.  Period.  That should not even be a question.  Unless you're a Congressional Democrat, that is.  In that case, undocumented Democrats are your thing.  As reported by John Solomon's Just the News, the issue of "non-citizen" voting first came to a boil big-time at the end of the 2018 Georgia governor's race, when Democrat Stacey Abrams suggested the "blue wave" of voters she hoped would put in her office included the "documented and undocumented," the latter a ridiculous Democrat term for illegal aliens.  Abrams denied she was referring to illegal aliens.  However, last time I checked my Democrat decoder ring, "undocumented" was code for "illegal."  Meanwhile, cities in at least three states have authorized illegal aliens to vote, while Georgia ponders a constitutional amendment to ban it.

Report: U.S. Govt Chartered Christmas 'Ghost Flights' to Carry Illegal Migrants into Pennsylvania.  Chartered jets carrying mostly minor-age, illegal immigrants into Scranton, Pennsylvania have attracted the attention of leading conservative lawmakers in the state, The National Pulse can reveal.  Congressman Dan Meuser as well as gubernatorial candidate Lou Barletta have urged immigration authorities as well as Governor Tom Wolf to explain what one source told The National Pulse were "ghost flights" into Scranton International Airport over the course of December.  The term "ghost flight" was used to describe the secretive nature of the flights, some of which arrived at night, without passenger manifests being made available.  Beginning on December 11th and set to conclude on December 30th, hundreds of what are believed to be underage, illegal immigrants have been flown into the Pennsylvania by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Border Patrol Agent: 'Utilize Your Second Amendment' for Safety.  Thirteen-year Border Patrol Agent Roy Cantu warns that Biden's border crisis could soon get worse and urges Americans to "utilize your Second Amendment" for safety.  FOX News reports that Cantu told the NRA that Biden's vaccine mandate for all federal employees means agents must either get vaccinated or give up their jobs.

Analysis: Biden on Pace to Bring 2M Illegal Aliens to U.S. by Year End.  President Joe Biden is on pace to bring nearly 2,000,000 border crossers and illegal aliens to the United States-Mexico border in 2021, new analysis projects.  The analysis, from Princeton Policy Advisors President Steven Kopits, estimates that Biden will have enticed about 1.92 million border crossers and illegal aliens to have made the often deadly journey to the southern border from January to December 2021.

As Biden's Border Crisis Rages, Armed Texans Arrive to Round Up Illegal Aliens.  A new Texas law is attracting armed groups with body armor, long guns and high tech drones to the border.  Some local officials are welcoming them, according to The Wall Street Journal.  The new law allows migrants to be arrested for trespassing.  The armed groups intend to find the illegals and deliver them to law enforcement officials for arrest.

This is not news.  Everybody knows this already.
Foreign-born population soars to new record under Biden; highest rate of immigrants since 1910.  The U.S. has had a massive surge in immigration this year, with as many as 1.5 million newcomers and a record 46.2 million foreign-born people, according to a report for the Center for Immigration Studies.  After a deep trough last year, likely because of the COVID-19 pandemic and the travel and migration restrictions imposed to control the spread, the flow of people rebounded around the time President Biden was elected.  In numbers never seen before, they are coming legally through airports and land border crossings and illegally across the Rio Grande and remote regions of Arizona and California.

The madness of King Brandon.  The summer of 2021 brought hundreds of thousands of illegal migrants into this country via an unenforced border that many described as "porous."  Despite draconian COVID restrictions and required testing for many Americans who live here, Biden turned a blind eye to health concerns and guarding our border.  Instead, he allowed what can only be described as a foreign invasion from virtually anyone, regardless of COVID or vaccination status, who wanted to enter our country along our alleged southern border.  The border wall that President Trump worked to build and fought Congress to fund was disregarded by Biden, and ramshackle, filthy tent cities were set up inside our country by the hordes of illegal migrant families who walked into our country to gain de facto citizenship, courtesy of the Biden administration.  For their trouble, illegal aliens were rewarded with free (American taxpayer-funded) health care, welfare, transportation, career and education assistance, and even $1,400 stimulus checks.

Tucker Carlson:  Biden's southern border policy may be the most destructive thing any administration has done.  Jupiter is a pretty little town on the east coast of Florida — it's about 90 miles north of Miami.  It's not a huge place.  It's a safe and orderly place.  Tons of nice people live there.  Not all of them, by the way, are rich, which is unusual for a coastal town.  It's a normal place.  In other words, it's the country you remember.  You wouldn't mind living there, for sure.  But over the weekend, Jupiter, Florida, looked less like the America of 1980 and more like the America that Joe Biden is busy creating right now, which is to say chaotic, crazy, out-of-control.  Families sitting on the beach in Jupiter this Sunday watch slack-jawed as a boat carrying dozens of unemployed, illegal immigrant Haitians suddenly pulled up onshore.  The people inside the boat hopped out, ran through the waves, and scattered.  Not what you expect on a Sunday on the beach, but not everybody in Jupiter was surprised to see this happen.  Another boat full of Haitians had landed there just that summer, so it's becoming a regular occurrence in Jupiter, Florida.

Border arrests up in November as Biden releases more illegal immigrants into US.  President Joe Biden's Department of Homeland Security has reduced the number of migrant families detained for illegally crossing the southern border to zero, according to a report this week.  But this milestone wasn't reached by ending the surge of illegal immigrants crossing the southern border.  Quite the opposite.  The number of illegal immigrants who were arrested crossing the border rose in November to 173,600.  That is up 5% from the 164,000 arrested in October, and it is more than double the 72,000 caught last November.  The only way that Biden was able to reduce the number of illegal immigrant families detained at the border was to release them into the United States.  Many of these migrants will try to win asylum status from immigration judges, but almost none of them will succeed since they are economic migrants and don't qualify for asylum.

United Nations Grantee Uses U.S. Tax Dollars To Fund Illegal Immigration.  During a recent trip to a Reynosa, Mexico migrant camp, I took photos of a United Nations-supported International Organization for Migration (IOM) operation to hand out cash debit cards to intending and repeat border crossers.  One of two workers at a plastic folding table inside the Reynosa camp, which was filled to capacity with at least 1,200 mostly U.S.-expelled Central Americans, said they were distributing the cards for IOM to help migrants waiting until they cross the Rio Grande at greater leisure to claim asylum, for which most will be declared ineligible years later.  Many parents, for instance, got about $400 every 15 days, I was told, or $800 a month if they were still there to collect it, although the support level varied.

Joe Biden [is] Flying Illegal Aliens, Deported by Trump, Back to U.S..  President Joe Biden's administration is flying illegal aliens, previously deported by former President Donald Trump's administration, back to the United States.  This week, National Public Radio (NPR) reported that two previously deported illegal aliens, Claudio Rojas of Argentina and Jean Montrevil of Haiti, have since been brought back to the U.S. after they claimed that the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency retaliated against them for their open borders advocacy.  Before his 2019 deportation, Rojas had lived as an illegal alien for 19 years while Montrevil was deported in 2018 following more than a decade in the U.S.  Attorneys for the illegal aliens are now demanding that both be given amnesty as reparations for being deported from the U.S. by the Trump administration.

DHS eases screening for some refugees to save time.  Homeland Security has ditched an interview requirement for spouses and children of refugees who want to come to the U.S. as a package deal, saying it was taking too long to complete the cases without much benefit from the extra work.  The move is the latest deletion of a Trump-era security policy.  The Biden team said requiring interviews was "inconsistent" with President Biden's executive orders calling for a more inclusive immigration system.  U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, the government's legal immigration agency, said it can still do interviews on a case-by-case basis, but only when "there is a need to do so."

The 5th Circuit Delivers a Shockingly Ruthless Rebuke of Joe Biden's Lawlessness.  Upon taking office, Joe Biden pulled out his pen and phone and nixed the measure that had stemmed the tide of unqualified asylum applicants and trafficking of children.  Soon after, with the Obama-era policy of releasing illegal immigrants into the interior with a court date back in place, the current surge at the border began.  That surge has continued, reaching record levels over 2021.  Eventually, the courts got involved after several states sued, leading to an order to reinstate the "Remain in Mexico" policy.  Last month, the Biden administration made the move to follow that order, including securing a deal with Mexico, whose president had opposed ending the program in the first place.  Of course, that move wasn't willingly, as the government sought to appeal the decision.  Now, the 5th Circuit has slapped down that attempt at an appeal, and the decision is absolutely savage.

DeSantis: Biden effectively running 'human smuggling operation' with secret flights into Florida.  ["]The border is obviously a disaster and some people say, 'Well, that's a problem for Texas or Arizona.'  Well, actually, the Biden administration puts people on planes and flies them into Florida in the wee hours of the morning.  They've done over 70 flights in the last six months, dump people here.  And we had — a few weeks ago — one of those people that Biden dumped, ended up committing a murder in northeast Florida.  So, these are crimes that would not have happened but for Biden's recklessness.["]

Good News!  Illegal Migrants Are Allowed to Fly Without ID.  Good news: the Biden administration has once again proven that it is not "racist" by allowing illegal migrants to board commercial flights around the country even though they don't have identification.  And really, what could possibly go wrong?  This disturbing revelation comes from Rep. Lance Gooden (R-Texas), who has been investigating the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) as part of a larger investigation into what the Daily Caller described as "whistleblower documents alleging an operation to move migrants across the country without standard documentation." [...] Said Gooden:  "When I asked a border patrol officer about TSA allowing migrants to fly with no identification, they told me a Notice to Appear is not sufficient identification and they often have to take migrants at their word that they are who they say they are.  TSA and non-profit groups are putting millions of Americans travelling for Christmas at risk by allowing these unknown and unvetted migrants to board planes and fly across the country."

Mayor Declares Emergency in Arizona City Rocked by Illegal Immigration.  The mayor of an Arizona border city that has nearly 100,000 residents declared a state of emergency on Dec. 9 due to the soaring numbers of illegal immigrants flooding in from Mexico.  Yuma Mayor Douglas Nicholls said he issued the declaration "due to the unprecedented numbers of migrants entering the city prior to being processed and released by Border Patrol."  The action enables the city to receive state and federal funding to try to combat the crisis.  Apprehensions of illegal immigrants in Border Patrol's Yuma Sector have shot up since President Joe Biden took office in January.

Biden's dangerous deportation drop.  Unless something drastically changes over the next two months, more than 2 million migrants will have been arrested while illegally attempting to cross the southern border during President Joe Biden's first year in office.  Under Biden's open-borders policies, hundreds of thousands of these migrants were then released into the United States, often flown at taxpayer expense, to their final destination.  There, they will apply for asylum, a process that will take years, and the vast majority of them (more than 85%) will lose their asylum claims.  But that doesn't mean they will be deported.  Even before Biden became president, only a tiny percentage of the over 10 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. were being deported each year.  And now, under Biden, that number has dropped to almost zero.

DeSantis: 'We Can't Just Have People Who Are from Foreign Countries Displacing the Needs of Our Own People'.  Friday [12/10/2021] on FNC's "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) explained his state's new policy aimed at preventing the Biden administration from surreptitiously placing illegal immigrants in Florida.  The Sunshine State governor said such measures were justified because they prioritize his own citizens over those here illegally.  "For one, any of these contractors that are facilitating Biden's illegal policies by bringing people into Florida, oftentimes flying in at two o'clock in the morning with no notice to the State, anyone who is doing that forfeits the ability to have contracts with State and local government in the State of Florida, and they are going to be responsible for providing restitution to the State of Florida for every single person that they bring because when they dump somebody, a lot of costs end up being borne by the State in the future, whether that's education, healthcare, whether that's the criminal justice system," DeSantis said.

Ron DeSantis fights back against Biden illegal immigrant flights.  Now that the City Council has generously granted noncitizens the vote, it should be obvious why President Biden has laid out the welcome mat to migrants at the southern border.  Today's illegal migrant is tomorrow's Democratic voter, goes the calculus, and pesky formalities like citizenship just delay the glorious process.  Fittingly, one of Mayor Bill de Blasio's last acts of vandalism against the city will be to sign this abomination into law.  Cue Gov. Ron DeSantis, who plans to deport illegal migrants flown secretly into Florida from the southern border by the Biden administration.  Destination:  Delaware, the president's home state, or Martha's Vineyard, Barack Obama's holiday paradise.  "If you sent [them] to Delaware or Martha's Vineyard, that border would be secure the next day," DeSantis said Friday.

DeSantis Proposes $8 Million in Budget to Relocate Illegal Immigrants to Delaware, Martha's Vineyard.  Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis set $8 million in his 2022-23 budget to transport illegal immigrants out of The Sunshine State.  He proposed the spending in the Freedom First Budget to protect against harms resulting from illegal immigration.  The spending may include the transportation of unauthorized aliens located within Florida to other states or the District of Columbia.  "In yesterday's budget, I put in $8 million for us to be able to transport people illegally [in the United States] out of the state of Florida," he said during a press conference on Friday.  The Republican governor listed Delaware, President Joe Biden's hometown state, and Martha's Vineyard, where former President Barack Obama owns a mansion, as potential destinations to relocate the illegal immigrants.

Ron DeSantis comes out with a five-point workable plan to get around Biden on illegal immigation.  The more you look at Florida's governor, Ron DeSantis, the more you like him.  Here's his new plan on how to deal with Joe Biden's open borders policies that have brought the surge of illegal aliens into the country, in a neatly presented, effectively communicated Twitter summary:  [Tweet]  It's impressive, frankly for multiple reasons.  First, as noted above, it's effective Twitter communication, fearlessly getting the word out and summing up the precise details for all to read quickly.  Second, it's well in tune with what Americans are most thinking about in these days of Joe Biden's failed presidency.

Yuma Border Sector Shows 2600 Percent Increase in Migrants in October.  The Border Patrol in Yuma saw roughly 1,000 migrants cross into the United States daily between Friday and Monday, according to the agency.  Many believe the surge is related to a pending restart of the Trump era "Remain in Mexico" program.  The pace of illegal crossings add to already record-breaking arrest numbers from the once quiet sector.  Federal statistics show Yuma's apprehension increase in October 2021 is 2,647 percent over October 2020.  According to CBP, out of the nine southwest Border Patrol Sectors, Yuma is trailing only the Rio Grande Valley and the Del Rio Sectors in apprehensions.

Governor Ron DeSantis Outlines Legislation Targeting Private Sector Contractors Who Facilitate Unlawful Immigration.  Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is proposing an interesting legislative approach to curb the White House illegal immigration process.  In essence, what the Florida legislature will be enacting are laws that restrict any private company from doing business in Florida if they are participating in the federal programs to distribute illegal aliens.  If a federal contractor facilitates the transport, housing or subsidy of an illegal alien into Florida the state will block that contractor from any state level business relationship.

Fort Bragg soldier to be deported after faking marriage to get green card.  A Fort Bragg soldier will be deported after she pleaded guilty to one count of visa fraud for faking her marriage to a United States citizen in order to get a green card, federal officials announced.  Maryam Movsum Hasanova, 35, originally from Azerbaijan, entered the US as an exchange visitor, however that status expired in March 2014, federal prosecutors said.  In early 2015, she met a US citizen, identified only as S.V.M. in court documents, who agreed to the sham marriage to Hasanova in exchange for $15,000.  The two were married in New York in October 2015.  Hasanova and her new fake hubby submitted paperwork to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services asking that her status be changed to a lawful, permanent resident of the US.  The two were interviewed at the USCIS office in New York City, where they "attested under oath they were married in good faith," prosecutors said.

Yuma Shows What Happens When Border Patrol Is Unable to Patrol the Border.  The illegal immigrants had been waiting by the gap in the border wall by Morelos Dam all day on Wednesday.  No Border Patrol transportation, or even an agent in a pickup truck, had come by to take them away, so they decided to walk to the Border Patrol station about 9 miles into town.  The group of around 100 walked into Yuma's city limits, passing by neighborhoods, with some making a quick pit stop at a local McDonald's.  Frank, a local contractor, pulled over on his way to dinner to talk with me in astonishment, saying he had never seen something like this in Yuma before. [...] Some of the illegal immigrants were given rides by local residents or taxis and dropped off at Border Patrol's Yuma Sector Headquarters.  Others completed their journey by walking the whole way.  Once at the station, they walked up to a gate and banged on it to let the agents know they were outside.  Agents would come out and let them in to be processed.

Arizona to deploy National Guard after hundreds of migrants rush border at Yuma, surrender to Border Patrol.  Several hundred migrants have entered the U.S. illegally in the past day in Yuma, Ariz., overwhelming law enforcement capacity in the region, local news reports say.  More than 1,500 migrants came across from Sonora, Mexico, on Monday and other groups were spotted near Morelos Dam across the border, the Yuma Sun reported.  The Yuma County Sheriff's office has been fielding 911 calls since Sunday from migrants requesting water and to be picked up; one Border Patrol official told the newspaper the agency is trying to pick up every migrant but "there just aren't enough agents."

Democrats don't care about inflation, the poor, the middle class, women, or science.  They care about raw power.  As their poll numbers drop and inflation becomes more of an issue, Democrats are pretending they care and suddenly have a solution.  They want more immigrants to fill jobs at lower wages in the "informal economy."  Of course, Democrats have always wanted more immigrants, whatever the inflation rate is, so this is just a new, worthless talking point.  If more immigrants solved the inflation problem, wouldn't Biden's open borders and the sanctuary cities and states not enforcing the laws have solved the problem?

Republican senators introduce bill to block settlement payments to separated illegal immigrants.  Sens. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., Tom Cotton, R-Ark., John Cornyn, R-Texas, and Republican Leader Mitch McConnell will introduce the Protect American Taxpayer Dollars from Illegal Immigration Act.  The legislation would bar the use of federal funds, including the Judgment Fund, which pays for court judgments and lawsuit settlements against the federal government, for illegal immigrants if the settlements are related to their detention at the border after Jan. 20, 2017.  The bill is in response to reported plans by the administration to settle with illegal immigrants who were separated from family members during the Trump administration and are suing the government as a result.

Death by Politics.  President Joe Biden has purposely left our southern border defenseless.  By design or chance, he has partnered with the drug cartels.  Fentanyl is flooding into our country.  This drug, 80 to 100 times more potent than morphine, is killing thousands of our people, yet this leader allows such to continue day after day.  How much money is kicked upward to Democratic politicians by the cartels and gangs that now operate in the USA?  Another number that eludes us is the number of women and children dying in the attempt to reach the U.S.  We will probably never know.

Texas Law Enforcement Reports Reveal Scope of the Border Crisis.  In one week, 22,651 illegal aliens from 40 countries were apprehended in Texas near the U.S.‑Mexico border, according to a Nov. 2 law enforcement report issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety and obtained by The Epoch Times.  The reporting week encompassed the seven days from Oct. 27 through Nov. 2, and according to the previous week's numbers and a report from May, the numbers have been this high for months.  Law enforcement arrested 48 fugitives and 13 gang members.  In addition, more than 4,000 pounds of marijuana, 669 pounds of methamphetamine, and 87 pounds of cocaine were seized.  Also confiscated were 27 handguns, three long guns, and more than $188,000 in cash.  In the past six months, three separate currency seizures each exceeded $1.5 million.

In one week, 22,651 Illegal Aliens from 40 countries [were] Caught in Texas.  The Border Operations Sector Assessment reports are issued weekly to law enforcement but the public is not given the information.  The Border Operations Sector Assessment (BOSA) is a report of criminal activity, trends, and statistics from the six JOIC regions in TEXAS and Mexico that is disseminated to a wide audience of federal, state, and local law enforcement.  It's kept classified.  The Epoch Times secured a one-week report through FOIA but they won't release past reports.  Reports detail drug seizures, gang activity, and illegal crossings — including the capture of individuals from terror-prone countries in Texas alone.

Caravan with 2,000 Central American and Caribbean migrants bound for the United States sets off from southern Mexico.  A group of 2,000 migrants and asylum seekers marched off from the southern Mexico municipality of Tapachula across from the Guatemalan border overnight Sunday in the latest in a series of caravans setting out for the United States.  The caravan is the fourth to form in the state of Chiapas since Friday and had advanced approximately 15 miles, reaching the town of Huehuetán, a witness told Reuters.  The group is mostly made up of families from Central America and the Caribbean who are escaping from violence, poverty and hunger criss in their home countries.

Maryland seafood company owner gets probation after hiring illegal immigrants.  The owner of a Maryland seafood and ice processing company that employed at least 89 illegal immigrants was sentenced last week to a year of probation and a $15,000 fine, and had to promise to use E-Verify to screen new hires in the future.  Philip J. "Jamie" Harrington III worked out the deal with prosecutors and pleaded guilty to a single charge of unlawful employment of illegal immigrants.  His company, Captain Phip's Seafood, was sentenced to three years of probation and a fine of $240,000 for felony visa fraud.  Harrington also asked that his probation officer allow him to make his usual trips this year to Florida and the Bahamas for Thanksgiving, Christmas and the New Year's holidays.

Biden bill would give amnesty to 6.5 million illegal immigrants, CBO says.  More than 6 million illegal immigrants in the United States would be granted amnesty and allowed to obtain government benefits by House Democrats' Build Back Better Act, according to a review by the Congressional Budget Office.  The CBO concluded in November that approximately 6.5 million noncitizens who live in the U.S. largely as a result of illegally crossing the southern border before January 2011 would be granted parole and immediately go from being unlawfully present to lawfully present.  The proposal would be the largest-ever amnesty, double the size of the one that went through during the Reagan administration in 1986.  The term amnesty refers to being pardoned, in this case for the federal offense of illegally entering the country between ports of entry and residing in the U.S. without permission.

Biden Hasn't Released Report To American Public On How Many Illegal Aliens Are In U.S.: Report.  Democrat President Joe Biden's administration has reportedly failed to disclose information to the American people related to the number of illegal aliens in the United States.  The Department of Homeland of Security (DHS) has given Congress the report on the number of illegal aliens that are in the U.S. on expired visas but has not disclosed the information to the American public.

Biden Admin Withholds Report on Illegal Immigrant Population.  The Biden administration has yet to publicly disclose critical information on the number of illegal immigrants in the United States, a violation of congressional guidance and a departure from federal transparency standards.  The Department of Homeland Security has given Congress its report on the number of foreign nationals who remain in the United States on expired visas, but the information has not been subsequently released to the public, the Washington Free Beacon has learned.  Stretching back to at least the Obama administration, DHS has made the annual report on suspected visa overstays available to the public shortly after giving it to Congress.

United Nations is Handing Out $800 Debit Cards to Illegal Migrant Families in Mexico Heading to US.  Todd Bensman, a Fellow at the Center for Immigration Studies recently traveled to Mexico where he is reporting on the tens of thousands of illegal aliens heading to the open US Southern Border.  In Reynosa, Mexico, at a migrant camp, Bensman witnessed the United Nations IOM handing out free debit cards to aspiring US border crossers.  The IOM workers with the United Nations said a migrant family of four gets about $800 a month.  Todd said he watched long lines of migrants get their UN debit cards — paid for by US taxpayers.

Large Migrant Group Rushes [the] Border in West Texas.  Border Patrol agents in Del Rio apprehended more than 250 migrants crossing the Rio Grande in a single group.  The group, according to a source within Customs and Border Protection (CBP) crossed the river into the United States on Sunday near the Del Rio International Bridge where more than 15,000 mostly Haitian migrants were held in a makeshift detention camp in September.  The source says the nationalities of the migrants were a mix of mostly Venezuelan and Cuban migrants.  The source, speaking on the condition of anonymity, says the nearly 300 migrants are being held under the port of entry while they await transportation to nearby Border Patrol stations in the region.

ICE arrests plummeted under Biden guidance; officers averaged an arrest every two months.  ICE authorized just 20,858 arrests in the six months after the Biden administration announced new rules restricting which illegal immigrants could be targeted — or an average of just one arrest every two months for each deportation officer.  That's down exponentially from the Trump years, when the rate averaged two arrests each month, and it's even worse compared to the peak Obama years, when the ratio was about four arrests each month.  But even though U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says it's catching fewer people overall, it's arresting more aggravated felons, which ICE says is proof the new rules are working to allow officers to focus on the most valuable targets.

Border Crossings Are at an All-Time High.  The Homeland Security Department Is Prioritizing 'Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.'.  As patrol agents are overwhelmed with an all-time high number of crossings at the southern border, the Department of Homeland Security is prioritizing "diversity, equity, and inclusion" (DEI) in the 2022 fiscal year, according to documents reviewed by the Washington Free Beacon.  In a November report that outlined initiatives for agencies such as Customs and Border Protection, DHS listed compliance with federal regulations as first among six "priorities."  The second was "diversity, equity, and inclusion" — above "customer experience" and "cybersecurity."  The department sent the report to staff members following a town hall-like meeting, during which agency heads emphasized to staff the importance of DEI efforts.

State troopers overwhelmed with rising illegal migration in West Texas.  Texas state troopers deployed to the border in remote West Texas to serve as backup to the overstretched Border Patrol are overwhelmed responding to the increasing number of illegal migrants who try to outrun them.  The Texas Department of Public Safety has rerouted more than 1,000 officers from their normal duties to the border since March, when the number of people illegally crossing from Mexico into the United States began to spike across the state.  West Texas, normally the quietest place along the state's 1,250-mile shared border with Mexico, is being inundated with groups of people crossing, all of whom are trying to evade capture, law enforcement told the Washington Examiner.

A Border Sheriff's Reality.  Border sheriffs in Arizona have long reckoned with illegal immigration, trodden for decades over the same sagebrush routes now used by the Sinaloa Cartel to ensure its majority share of the American drug trade.  Unlawful waves of migration have waxed and waned over the years, contingent upon the party in power.  Bush 43 wrestled with it, leaving it to flourish under Obama.  Trump brought it to an all-time low behind hundreds of miles of new and replacement wall fortified by Title 42 and Migrant Protection Protocols that kept the phalanxes of border crashers inside Mexico.  The Biden doctrine on unlawful migration has been to put a match to all things Trump while continuing to chip away at any regulatory headwinds that might slow the invasion.

People should be angry about Joe Biden's Rittenhouse verdict twaddle.  So Joe Biden is "angry and concerned" that a 17-year-old who defended himself against armed adult criminals got acquitted by a Kenosha jury in a trial.  [Biden quote omitted for brevity.]  Biden says he's angry and concerned over Rittenhouse acquittal for Kenosha killings, but 'we have to abide by it.'  Prior to that, he tried to smear Rittenhouse as a white supremacist. [...] I've never heard Biden that he is "angry and concerned" about the following:  All the violent rioters and protesters in cities who killed and injured cops and others and committed arson and looted and never got charged.  All the career criminals who are let out of jail repeatedly, by lenient judges and politicians, and who go on to commit other violent crimes.  The cartels at the border who run drugs, humans and guns across his open border and are now getting very rich indeed from human-smuggling fees.

Nonprofits showing illegals how to get around US, get free hotel stays: pol says.  A Republican congressman from Texas says nonprofits are creating a national security threat involving illegal immigrants — handing out information packets to migrants that show how to move around the country without identification and get put up in hotels for free.  Rep. Lance Gooden told "Fox & Friends" that he was tipped off about the secretive operation by a whistleblower from San Diego who handed over the kinds of information the groups are giving migrants.  Working on the tip, Gooden traveled to California where he found migrants were being housed hotels in the city, including The Four Points by Sheraton where rates start at $159 a night.  "I managed to get in the gates, I demanded entry once and was refused.  I talked a guard into letting me in on another occasion and when I was in there I saw busses pulling up, probably about 100 migrants over an hour got off of these busses," Gooden told Fox News on Monday [11/15/2021].

Kamala Harris Meets With Mexican President To Talk About Everything But The Border.  Vice President Kamala Harris met with Mexican President Andres Manuel López Obrador to discuss everything but the border, according to a Thursday press release.  Harris and Obrador didn't appear to discuss the Biden administration's pending implementation of former President Donald Trump's Remain in Mexico program or other issues overwhelming U.S. border officials, such as increased migration to the country, according to the statement.  "Vice President Harris and President López Obrador agreed to continue working together to address the root causes of migration from Central America and the need for a regional approach to migration in the Western Hemisphere," according to the press release.

Hey, RINOs!  How's all this working for you?  President Trump issued an executive order banning federal funds from contractors who conduct Critical Race Theory (CRT) training.  He saw this theory for what it is: a race-based "pre-trial guilty verdict" of racism, which is itself, by definition, racism.  Boom, by a stroke of the pen, he declared it un-American and gone!  Biden?  In a 180-degree turn, he reinstituted CRT and has promoted the metastasis of this divisive Marxist ideology all across the nation, angering millions of people, especially parents who do not want this racist nonsense taught to their children in K-12 education.

Illegal Immigrants would Get $10.5 Billion from Reconciliation Bill.  Based on the reconciliation bill, a $1.9 trillion monstrosity, one would be forgiven for thinking that Democrats don't want to stop with subsidizing non-working Americans, but want to go ahead and subsidize illegal immigrants too!  The bill, which Team Biden is pressing Congress to pass, includes a provision that would expand the child tax credit to pay for the children of illegal immigrants.  According to a RealClearPolitics report, the expanded tax credit would be available to every illegal immigrant child and would cost American taxpayers $10.5 billion.  Here's what RCP reported about the ridiculous provision:  ["]This includes the roughly 600,000 unaccompanied minors and persons in family units stopped at the border in FY2021 and released into the country pending a hearing.  Cash welfare to illegal immigrants is not just costly; it also encourages more illegal immigration.["]

Federally Funded Non-Profits Are Running Illegal Immigrant Processing Centers in Nice Hotels, Helping Migrants Avoid Arrest.  The Biden administration has deputized non-profit groups to move illegal migrants across the nation, allowing the charities to put them up in nice hotels and give them instructions on how to avoid capture.  Rep. Lance Gooden (R-Texas) said Monday that a whistleblower told him about an ongoing operation in San Diego, and decided to go there to see for himself what is going on.  "What I found were nonprofits that were running secretive closed-down hotels, the four point Sheraton Sea World, a Wyndham, a Ramada Inn," he revealed on Fox and Friends.  Gooden said that he witnessed buses unloading about 100 illegal immigrants in about an hour at one hotel, and they were welcomed by the charity "with open arms."  Once the migrants are processed, and tested for COVID, Gooden said they are each given a packet, which detail how they can get past the TSA at the airport without any identification, as well as how to enroll their children in American schools.  "It's encouraging illegal immigration!" Gooden declared.

Lee Presses Mayorkas:  What's Going to Happen to Border When Agents Get Fired Over the Vaccine Mandate?  Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) pressed Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas on Tuesday over the impact of President Biden's vaccine mandate on federal employees.  What will happen if thousands of the 16,000-17,000 Border Patrol agents at the southern border are sidelined over their vaccination status, he wondered.  "This ties back to your desire to give yourself an A for effort on dealing with workforce issues," Lee said.  "But what happens when you've got potentially thousands of those, a pretty large percentage, who might soon become ineligible to work based on their vaccination status?  Does that hurt or help the operational control of the border?"  While touting the "tremendous uptick" in the percentage of agents who are getting vaccinated, Mayorkas could only "hope that does not materialize."

Welcome packet reveals concierge travel service for Biden illegals, courtesy of nonprofits.  Like travel agents preparing customers for a cruise, nonprofits working with the Biden administration have created detailed itineraries and information packets to help illegal aliens travel to wherever they want to go in the U.S., according to documents obtained by a Texas congressman.  Often courtesy of American taxpayers struggling to pay their bills during surging inflation, illegals are given free quality hotel rooms, plane tickets and transportation to the airport, travel maps, and instructions to TSA to bypass photo ID requirements, according to the documents shared with Just the News.  The prototype packet, which was provided by a whistleblower to Rep. Lance Gooden (R-Texas), undermines Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas' claim that the southern border is closed.  Instead, it highlights an extensive network of nonprofits, corporations and family foundations working together to circumvent immigration laws passed by Congress.

Four Highlights of Mayorkas' Senate Testimony on Border Crisis.  [#4] Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., inquired why the Biden administration had stopped constructing the border wall after the new president took office.  "Can you explain to me why a wall is effective and necessary at the White House and the Biden beach house, but not at the southern border?"  Mayorkas answered that a wall wouldn't work for the entire southern border.  "There are thousands of miles along the southern border," he said, then talked about the "diversity and the terrain" there.  "Therefore, the key to border security is fundamentally advanced technology," Mayorkas said.  "That is the most effective means because we're not going to construct a border wall on the ragged and jagged cliffs."  The Trump administration's border security measures also included investing in such technology to monitor border crossings and catch illegal immigrants.

Spain:  Migration Crisis Spirals Out of Control.  Prosecutors in Spain have charged a dozen North African migrants with sedition for illegally entering the country by forcing a commercial airliner to land on Spanish territory.  The plot, months in the making and unmatched in audacity, has demonstrated that commandeering airliners is a cheaper and safer way to reach Europe than paying people-smugglers thousands of euros for perilous sea crossings.  Spanish authorities, notorious for closing a blind eye to illegal immigration from North Africa, fear that the plot has set a precedent that will be repeated, not only in Spain but at other airports in Europe.

Hundreds of Adult Illegals Caught Posing as 'Unaccompanied Minors'.  More than 500 illegal aliens apprehended in one border sector during Fiscal Year 2021 claimed they were children when they were actually adults, according to reports.  El Paso Sector Border Patrol agents encountered nearly 23,000 unaccompanied minors between October 1, 2020, and September 30, 2021.  Additionally, they caught 559 adult aliens lying about their ages.  In the past six weeks, at least 55 more illegals have reportedly been busted falsely passing themselves off as underage, indicating FY 2022 could see even higher numbers than the previous year in ElPaso sector.  Border Patrol spokesman Carlos Rivera told Border Report seasoned agents are usually able to detect fraudulent documents and identify fake 'kids' by analyzing behavior, physical characteristics, and body language.

More on how the public feels about those massive payments to illegal aliens.  The other day, Ed Morrissey looked at a recent Trafalgar poll sampling the nation's feelings about massive reparations payments for families who were separated at the southern border.  That would be the result of a pending lawsuit that the State Department is reportedly considering a settlement on.  It's a payment plan that Joe Biden initially called "garbage," before deciding that he was actually perfectly fine with it after all.  But were Trafalgar's numbers an outlier?  After all, the national opposition to the payments reflected in that poll was pretty much off the charts, showing nearly 67% disapproval, with well over half "strongly" disapproving.

Biden's spending bill drops key child tax credit requirement that could pay out billions to illegal immigrants.  President Biden's massive $1.75 trillion spending bill would drop a component of the child tax credit program that could lead to billions in payouts to illegal immigrants.  Tucked away on page 1,647 of the Build Back Better Act, the Democrats' social spending package, is a provision that would repeal the Social Security number requirement to obtain child tax credits.  This change would expand child tax credits to parents of illegal immigrants who don't have Social Security numbers.  Steven Camarota, a Center for Immigration Studies researcher, estimated that eliminating the requirement could result in up to $2.3 billion in additional child tax credit payouts to illegal immigrants.

Biden's border crisis:  Countries refuse to take migrants back.  As if the backlog of processing illegal migrants isn't jammed up enough due to the sheer number of them, the latest twist is that some countries refuse to take back their citizens.  The countries that the largest number of migrants are coming from are Venezuela and Nicaragua.  Venezuela is where the largest number of migrants comes from now, exceeding the number of Mexicans coming across the border.  Axios has a report that 800 Venezuelan migrants have crossed the border illegally every day for the last two weeks.  This squares with reports from last summer about the growing problem of Venezuelans fleeing that country due to its complete collapse under the leadership of Nicolás Maduro.  Last June those with the means to leave were already coming "in droves".  A record 13,400 crossed the border illegally in October.

Steel company that smuggled illegal immigrant workers forfeits $6 million to feds.  A steel manufacturing company has been ordered to forfeit $6 million — a near-financial death sentence — after admitting it had run a pipeline for "dozens" illegal immigrants from Mexico to come and work for it, undercutting competitors.  All Steel Carports Inc. told the court in a sentencing memo that owner Ignacio Chavez, who came to the U.S illegally himself before winning legal residency in 2009, didn't consider hiring illegal immigrants to be a big deal.  "In his culture laws are there but few respect them," the company's lawyers wrote.  The Biden administration cut him a break, dropping human smuggling and money laundering charges the Trump administration had brought.

The Editor says...
In other words, the Trump administration enforced federal immigration laws, and the Biden administration has no respect for those laws.

Biden's 'Build Back Better Act' Gives $800M in Cash Payments to Illegal Aliens Released into U.S..  President Joe Biden's "Build Back Better Act," a filibuster-proof $1.75 trillion budget reconciliation package, would give $800 million worth of cash payments to hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens who were recently released into the United States interior, a new analysis states.  As Breitbart News previously reported, the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) analyzed the cost to American taxpayers if Biden's expanded Child Tax Credit for illegal aliens was extended for at least another year as part of the reconciliation package.

DHS Refuses to Disclose Data on the Release of Illegal Immigrants.  The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is refusing to provide information about the total number of illegal immigrants and border crossers that have entered the United States since January when President Biden took office, according to Breitbart News.  Though "limited data" was provided by the DHS in October revealing that "the agency had released 'at least 500,000' border crossers and illegal aliens into the U.S. interior since the beginning of the year," they would not respond to probing questions that would reveal details on "how and where border crossers and illegal aliens are being released."

DeSantis floats sending migrants to Delaware in response to Biden admin's migrant flights to Florida.  Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Wednesday floated sending migrants to President Biden's home state of Delaware, in response to the dozens of migrant flights DeSantis says have landed in Florida at the behest of the Biden administration.  "If they're going to come here, we'll provide buses," DeSantis said of the migrants on the flights.  "I will send them to Delaware and do that."  "If he's not going to support the border being secure, then he should be able to have everyone there," he said.  The Republican governor has been ramping up his battle with the administration over migrant flights into Jacksonville.  His office told The Washington Examiner that there have been more than 70 flights of migrants into the Sunshine State since the summer.

The collusive lawsuit between the ACLU and the Biden administration for immigration reparations is an illegal and unethical sham.  The ACLU sued the United States for money on behalf of illegal immigrants for being separated from their children when they were caught and detained at the border.  The Wall Street Journal reported a few weeks ago that the Department of Justice was considering settling the case for about $450,000 per individual — a settlement amounting to over a million dollars in the case of a family of three and over two million for a family of five.  The basis for the ACLU's lawsuit on behalf of the immigrants is not clear.  Most legal experts agree that whatever the morality of putting children into shelters, it is lawful.  That's what happens when parents commit a crime and are incarcerated.  The lawsuit appears designed to establish new judge-made law to the effect that when the crime is illegal immigration, the children must be incarcerated with the parents (who may or may not actually be their parents) in an adult prison.  That of course would be untenable.  Which is why immigration activists are pushing it.  Being a generous people, Americans would not allow the incarceration of children in adult prisons, and so the effect would be to prevent the incarceration of the parents too.

Leaked document:  Border Patrol may lose half of its agents over COVID vaccine mandate.  The deadline for federal employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19 is November 22.  Federal employees who are not vaccinated, or obtain an exemption, by that date are subject to termination.  It's hard to imagine a worse time to lose a substantial amount of border patrol agents than during the Biden Border Crisis.  Former chief operating officer of CBP from 2019 to 2021, Mark Morgan, obtained a document from a source inside CBP.  The leaked document shows nearly half of CBP agents have not registered their COVID vaccination status and 10% of those who have registered have not received a shot.  The federal mandate issued by Biden may result in the loss of over half of border patrol agents.

Feds ponder how much to pay illegal immigrants.  Members of Congress who die in office customarily have a year's salary, currently $174,000, as a payout to their survivors.  Families of U.S. service members who die on active duty get a $100,000 death gratuity.  Japanese Americans, forced out of their homes and into internment camps for more than two years during World War II, collected $20,000 payments four decades later.  That's worth about $46,000 in today's dollars.  Lawmakers and legal experts are looking at those kinds of payments as the Biden administration considers cutting $450,000 checks — nearly 10 times the inflation-adjusted rate paid to the internees — to compensate illegal immigrants who say they suffered emotional trauma from family separations as a result of President Trump's zero-tolerance border policy.  One legal expert characterized $450,000 checks as "quite generous" compared with other payouts that courts have authorized, but figuring out the proper comparison is fraught with complications.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis Discusses State Efforts To Block Biden's Distribution of Criminal Illegal Aliens into Florida.  During a speech in Jacksonville earlier today, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis discussed some of the potential state actions that can be taken to block the distribution of illegal aliens into the state.  Joe Biden has been sending covert flights of illegal alien border crossers into Florida in the late night hours.  Governor DeSantis is now looking at punitive damages, or state level punishment, against the private sector contractors who are facilitating the transport.  Additionally, DeSantis noted one potential solution would be for Florida state law enforcement to put the illegal aliens onto chartered buses and sending them to Joe Biden's home state of Delaware.

Biden's America:  Illegal Aliens [are] Worth More than U.S. Soldiers.  The Biden administration is considering payments of $450,000 to illegal aliens — per person — for "immigrant families that were separated during the Trump administration" after illegal entering into the United States.  The payments would be part of a settlement of a lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of illegal alien families.  The total settlement amount is reported to be at least $1 billion of federal taxpayer funds.  On November 4, 2021, President Joe Biden told reporters that payments to families separated at the Mexico border are, "Not gonna' happen."  When pressed further concerning the likelihood such payments would actually encourage more migrants to try to cross into the United States, Biden said, "If you guys keep sending that garbage out, yeah.  But it's not true."  Within 24 hours, the White House reversed itself completely and claimed that Biden was "perfectly comfortable" making the settlement payments.  This situation raises, again, the question of whether Biden has any idea what administration officials around him are doing.  It appears that officials who actually run the government are making decisions and acting on major public policy issues without telling the president.

'Send Them To Delaware': DeSantis Threatens Action Over Secret Migrant Flights.  Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is threatening legal action after his administration claimed that the federal government sent 70 planes carrying young migrants to Jacksonville from the US-Mexico border region under cover of darkness this summer.  At a news conference Wednesday, the Republican DeSantis said that his office is looking at all legal avenues of recourse after going public with their allegation this weekend.  "We're going to get together and figure out what we can do in the immediate term to protect folks in Florida," DeSantis told reporters.  The governor acknowledged his options are limited because the federal government exercises control over airspace and immigration.  But, he reasoned, "if they're not doing that, then clearly the state should be able to come in and provide protections, and so that's what we're going to be looking to do."  DeSantis also suggested the state should buy bus tickets to send the migrants elsewhere.

The Editor says...
I presume that the state lacks the authority to deport illegal aliens, but the aliens would probably be happy to accept a bus ticket to Maine or Oregon.  Preferably a charter bus that won't stop until after it leaves Florida.  And please don't stop the bus in Texas or Oklahoma.

What I Saw At Our Southern Border.  Those in charge of our country are not interested in you or your grievances.  They're interested in one thing: fundamentally transforming this country and all but guaranteeing the demise of western civilization.  The shifting demographic of this nation will ensure that the United States of America as we know it will disappear.  Millions have invaded our country, possessing no allegiance to this nation or its history and as people with little in common are forced to live together, not even speaking the same language, cultural clashes will ensue.  Our government has ceased to perform its most basic function and we have simply been too lazy to notice or even care.  The total stand down at our border is symbolic of what is happening in the rest of the country.  The border, our nation's debt, the fracturing of our culture, and the decline in living standards are all tied together.  One trip to the border and you understand that the defund the police movement is simply an extension of the policy implemented at our borders.

Biden Administration Sends Notices to Appear to Tens of Thousands of Illegal Immigrants Inside US.  President Joe Biden's administration is sending notices to tens of thousands of illegal immigrants who were released into the U.S. interior without being given a date to appear in court, the government confirmed to The Epoch Times.  Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) "is mailing charging documents to place noncitizens in removal proceedings who have been paroled or released under prosecutorial discretion by Customs and Border Protection," an ICE spokesman told The Epoch Times in an email.  The illegal immigrants, numbering about 78,000, will receive packets of documents, including documents directing them to report to the ICE office closest to where they're living, and that they will be processed for possible deportation.

The Texas Attorney General Versus the Biden Administration.  On August 7, 2021, I wrote about how states along our southern border could thwart the Biden (*) administration's material support for the drug cartels and the crimes being committed by invoking the RICO Statute. [...] Since August, I have spoken to several people with legal expertise, and each said RICO would be the wrong approach because federal prosecutors would be needed, and that will not happen in Biden's DOJ.  There might be a ray of hope, however. [...] Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has been relentlessly taking on every manner of illegality by the Biden (*) administration and, as the headline teases, one of the two new lawsuits in the making will take on an apparently clandestine effort to bring illegal immigrant families to the United States.  AG Paxton is quoted:  "The Biden administration now is working on flying other family members, minors, up at taxpayer expense, flying them to the United States to reunite with the rest of their family," he told the John Solomon Reports podcast.  "One, that's completely illegal.  There's nothing that allows for that in the federal law.  In effect, it's a complete violation of law. [...]"

Must-see Tucker Carlson video about the cause of America's woes.  Biden is aware that he's failing, but rather than step away from the White House, he meekly does whatever his handlers tell him to do.  That's where security lies.  Unfortunately, his handlers are unchained ideologues.  A good government tries to benefit its people and ensure the greatest prosperity and happiness for the greatest number.  A government filled with ideologues is so focused on its utopian visions that it is willing to destroy the people to "save" them.  That's why, for example, that despite polls showing that over two thirds of Americans oppose reparations for illegal aliens, Biden's government is going forward with the plan.  For the ideologues, taking massive sums of money from struggling Americans to give to people who illegally entered our country is a means to achieve permanent Democrat political power and all the wonders it will bring.

Congress Can Prevent the Biden Administration from Paying Illegal Aliens with Taxpayer Funds.  Amidst the security and humanitarian crisis along the U.S. southern border, the Biden Administration is considering payments of $450,000 to illegal aliens — per person — who were removed or detained during the 2018 zero tolerance policy for illegal entry into the country.  The payments of federal taxpayer funds would be part of a settlement of a lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of illegal-alien families.  The total settlement amount is reported to be at least $1 billion.  Congress can act immediately to prevent the disbursement of any taxpayer funds to illegal aliens and remove the jurisdiction of federal courts to hear any such claims.  Financial payments to illegal aliens would obviously encourage even more illegal immigration and frivolous litigation.

Biden's Borderline Madness.  Joe Biden is calling "garbage" the Wall Street Journal report that his Justice Department wants to pay $450,000 to every illegal "separated under the Trump administration."  The real trash here is the notion that the separation policy began with Trump.  "Even if the immigration law is executed with perfection, there will be parents separated from their children."  That was Cecilia Muñoz, White House Director of Intergovernmental Affairs, in an October 18, 2011 interview with Gretchen Gavett of PBS.  The problem, according to Muñoz, was "a broken system of laws, and the answer to that problem is reforming the law."  In the meantime, "even broken laws have to be enforced."  Therefore, parents would be separated from their children, with substantial benefits for those housing the separated.  Before her White House gig, Cecilia Muñoz was vice president of the National Council of La Raza.

Biden rages that illegal aliens 'deserve compensation'.  Following a series of contradictory statements around $450,000 taxpayer payoffs to illegals separated at the border, Joe Biden came out in a finger-pointing rage to let a reporter know that these lawbreakers "deserve compensation."  [Video clip]  [Transcript]  Which not only contradicts his previous claim that $450,000 payouts to illegal aliens are "garbage" reports, it's also patent nonsense.  "The last administration" which Biden refers to, and it has a name, was following U.S. law as it's currently written, not engaging in "outrageous behavior."  Before the Trump administration halted the practice of separating adults caught breaking into the country with children, the Trump administration had been following the law of the Flores Settlement.  That's the 1997 law which states that minors caught breaking into the U.S. can only be held for three days in detention under ordinary circumstances, but lawbreaking adults can be held longer.  That law necessitates breaking up supposed family units given the prescribed detention periods, and it was hardly any invention of Trump's.  It also was done during the Obama administration, and likely others before it.

Joe Biden is all-in for open borders.  Until recently, there was still hope the Biden administration would reverse course and bring law and order back to the southern border.  Those hopes were annihilated on Oct. 29, when Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas released a curt, four-page memo terminating, once again, Donald Trump's Migrant Protection Protocols.  Before the COVID pandemic, the program had successfully brought order to the southern border by ending the release of illegal immigrants into the United States.  Before its creation, illegal immigrants arrested for illegally crossing the southern border would tell Customs and Border Protection agents that they feared returning to their home countries.  All of these migrants had been coached on what specifically to say by human traffickers and drug cartels they paid to smuggle them to the border.  These words triggered the need for a determination by an immigration court judge as to whether the illegal immigrant in question actually deserved asylum.  But since tens of thousands of migrants are exploiting this loophole every month, the immigration court system doesn't have the capacity to hear their cases in a timely manner.

Now Biden defends migrant compensation payments he called 'garbage' three days ago.  President Joe Biden furiously defended a plan to send payments to families separated at the southern border Saturday, days after calling a report that the payments were as much as $450,000 'garbage.'  Biden was speaking at a press conference touting the passage of the $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill when he was asked about the payments.  Fox News' David Spunt asked:  'You said last week, that this report about migrant families at the border getting payments was garbage.'

Biden sent 70 secret night flights of migrants from border to Florida.  More than 70 flights transporting migrants from the southern border to Jacksonville have landed in the dark of night in recent months as the Biden administration struggles to empty overflowing border facilities, the office of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said.  It is the first time the state of Florida has disclosed the number of confirmed flights arriving in the state since the summer.  The governor's office has scrambled in recent weeks to uncover who is facilitating the mystery flights landing in northern Florida daily, but the Biden administration has refused to disclose any information, one official said.

The Editor says...
I've seen one report that indicates the immigrant distribution flights originate in Abilene, Texas, but I've seen no other reports that mention the point of origin.  The drive from Del Rio to Abilene is about 250 miles, and is quite scenic, if you like being in the middle of nowhere.  But apparently these journeys take place after dark, so there's really nothing to see, even if the buses have windows.

Migrants from Uzbekistan, Eritrea Appear at Texas Border.  In separate events, local Border Patrol Agents and their Brackettville-stationed colleagues apprehended migrants from two counties designated by the Department of Homeland Security as "special interest."  The arrests triggered immediate reporting to DHS headquarters.  According to a source within Customs and Border Protection, the incidents occurred on Monday [11/1/2021] and involved one group of 13 Eritreans and a separate family of three from Uzbekistan.  The source says the first arrests took place in Eagle Pass when agents spotted 13 mostly male Eritrean nationals attempting to evade arrest.  The Eritreans were in a residential neighborhood several miles from the Rio Grande.

The Editor says...
The most obvious question at this point is, "Where did you get the money to travel 8,700 miles from Eritrea or the 6,500 miles from Uzbekistan to Mexico?  Whatever the motivation for such a move, it probably has more to do with food stamps than with global warming, but guess which one will get the blame (or the credit)?

Biden is either lying, was never told or forgot about $450K migrant payouts.  President Joe Biden "may not have been fully briefed about the actions of his very own Justice Department," the ACLU said, after Clueless Joe angrily called a report that Justice would give $450,000-per-person payoffs to illegal immigrant families separated at the border "garbage."  And that's the Biden administration in a nutshell, isn't it?  We've got:
  •   A terrible policy.
  •   Biden not knowing what [...] is going on.
  •   The president insulting the press, in this case both the Wall Street Journal, which revealed the payoffs, and Fox News' Peter Doocy, who had the temerity to ask about it.
We have no doubt the Journal's reporting is correct.  A shakedown by the ACLU and solving everything with a big check is directly from the liberal playbook.  And it will, as Doocy notes, encourage even more migrants to illegally cross the border — something neither the ACLU nor the administration thinks is a bad thing.

Biden's $450,000 'garbage'.  For Joe Biden, reports of $450,000 payouts to illegal border crossers are "garbage" — as is the suggestion that any such payouts would incentive more illegal border crossing.  Biden's [mendacious] response came as a result of a question from Fox News's Peter Doocy:  [Tweet with video clip.] [...] Never mind that the original report came not from some blog but from the Wall Street Journal.  It's "garbage," Joe says.  Move along.  Yet House Republicans are taking action to stop it.  And the left-wing lawyers crafting these payouts are protesting.

Democrats block GOP attempt to derail Biden's $450,000 payments to illegal immigrants.  Republicans moved this week to block $450,000 payments to illegal immigrants who were part of family separations during the Trump administration, but they saw their first attempt quashed by Senate Democrats.  The payments are being pondered by President Biden's task force assigned to help reunify and compensate families snared by the Trump zero-tolerance border policy, which led to thousands of family separations.  Some migrants would be in line to collect $450,000 in federal money, and the total bill could top $1 billion, according to The Wall Street Journal, which first reported the negotiations.

White House backtracks and admits Biden will pay separated migrants after he called $450K proposal 'garbage' yesterday.  White House principal deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Thursday that President Biden is 'perfectly comfortable' with cash payouts to migrant families separated at the border, but insisted the settlements won't be as high as $450,000.  Fox News' Peter Doocy asked Jean-Pierre during the briefing what Biden meant when he called the reports of payments 'garbage' after the ACLU claimed that he 'hadn't been briefed properly.  Jean-Pierre, standing in for Jen Psaki after her COVID diagnosis, responded by saying that settlements were happening, and he was responding to the claim that they could be close to half-a-million dollars.

White House:  Actually, Joe Biden 'Perfectly Comfortable' with Payouts for Illegal Immigrants.  The White House on Thursday [11/4/2021] reversed a comment made by President Joe Biden that his administration would not issue payouts to illegal immigrants suing the federal government.  White House deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Biden was actually "perfectly comfortable" with the idea, despite his comment Wednesday insisting it was "not going to happen." [...] Biden previously called reports that the Department of Justice was considering payouts to individual illegal immigrants who were separated during former President Donald Trump's "Zero Tolerance" immigration enforcement policy "garbage" and "not true."  But Jean-Pierre said Biden was specifically referring to the idea of the reported $450,000 price tag, not the overall concept of a payout.

Biden's Response to a Question About Giving $450,000 to Illegal Aliens in DOJ Settlement Case Should Alarm Everyone.  During a press conference this afternoon, to promote vaccines for children 5 to 11 years old, Fox News journalist Peter Ducey [sic] asked Joe Biden about the DOJ settlement agreement with ACLU and immigration lawyers to pay illegal aliens $450,000 per person as compensation for their pain and suffering.  You need to watch Joe Biden's response carefully, because what he said should alarm everyone.  Within the response which includes "that's not going to happen", it is clear that Joe Biden has absolutely NO IDEA what the journalist was talking about.  From the position of Joe Biden, the Fox reporter was speaking 'fake news'.  [Video clip]

Biden labels report government to pay separated immigrants $450,000 'garbage'.  President Biden responded Wednesday to a report that suggested his administration was mulling whether to make $450,000 payments to immigrants who were separated from their families at the border under former President Trump's administration, calling the reporting "garbage" and saying that it is "not gonna happen."  Following remarks at the White House where he urged parents to get their children vaccinated, Biden was asked by Fox News White House Correspondent Peter Doocy about the Wall Street Journal's report and whether he believes it "might incentivize" immigrants to attempt to enter America illegally.  Biden responded, "If you guys keep sending that garbage out, yeah, but it's not true."

Biden: $450K to illegal immigrants?  "Garbage report"! NYT, ACLU: *Ahem*.  "Garbage" in, garbage out, I suppose.  Joe Biden thought he'd scored a point on Fox News by telling Peter Doocy, and ended up with looking clueless about his own administration.  Biden tried to blame Fox for incentivizing illegal immigration by filing a "garbage" report that his administration would pay $450,000 per person in a settlement over separated families in the Trump administration.  There were only two problems with Biden's argument.  First, it got reported by the Wall Street Journal, not Fox.  And second, [...]

Citizenship path for illegal immigrants to cost taxpayers more than $500 billion.  Offering a path to citizenship to illegal immigrants and opening the doors to more legal immigrants will cost the federal government more than $500 billion over the next few decades, the Congressional Budget Office said Wednesday [11/3/2021].  The costs would come chiefly to Social Security, Medicare and other social safety net programs that the new, and newly legalized, immigrants would be able to access, the budget analysts said.  The nonpartisan budget agency analyzed House Democrats' plan to update the window of eligibility for illegal immigrants to adjust their status to legal immigrants, and to expand availability of green cards, or legal immigrant visas, to more foreign citizens.

Analysis: Biden Proposal Could Turn Illegal Alien Families into Millionaires.  A plan being circulated by President Joe Biden's administration to provide border crossers, subjected to former President Trump's "Zero Tolerance" policy, with $450,000 reparations-style payouts has the potential to turn illegal alien families into millionaires seemingly overnight, a new analysis states.  The Biden administration is weighing whether to provide border crossers — who were subjected to the Zero Tolerance policy — with $450,000 each as part of a payout in lawsuits filed.  The plan could cost American taxpayers about $1 billion.

Report: 'At Least 160,000 Illegal Immigrants' Have Been Released Into U.S. Since March.  Fox News Reporter Bill Melugin out of Los Angeles has been covering the border crisis and tweeted bombshell documents from Border Patrol unearthing the number of illegal immigrants the Biden administration has actually let through the U.S. borders.  Melugin tweeted a copy of the document with the caption "NEW/THREAD: According to Border Patrol documents provided by a source, the federal gov has released over 70,000 illegal immigrants into the U.S. since August 6, including 31,977 released via parole (temp legal status, eligible for work permits).  94,570 released via NTR since 3/20."

26 Democrats Ask Federal Agencies to Investigate if Texas Migrant Arrests Violate [the US] Constitution.  Democratic members of Congress are asking the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. attorney general to investigate whether arrests of migrants violate constitutional rights.  Over two dozen Democratic members have joined together to investigate "legal problems that have arisen out of Texas Gov. Greg Abbott's border security initiative to arrest and jail migrants on state criminal charges" reports Austin's local CBS station.  Specifically, the 26 Democrats sent a letter asking the federal bureaus to investigate Abbott's "catch and jail" immigration policy.  The representatives claim the policy violates the U.S. Constitution because of violations of state law and logistical problems that have resulted from the thousands of arrests.

The Investigation of Those "Horrible" Border Patrol Agents on Horses Has Vanished.  Way back on Sept. 24, President Joe Biden finally paid attention to the southern border when he displayed anger at hard-working U.S. Border Patrol agents, vowing that they "will pay" — for something that did not occur.  "It was horrible what — to see, as you saw — to see people treated like they did: horses nearly running them over and people being strapped.  It's outrageous.  I promise you, those people will pay," Biden hyperbolically rambled.  "They will be — an investigation is underway now, and there will be consequences.  It's an embarrassment.  But beyond an embarrassment, it's dangerous; it's wrong.  It sends the wrong message around the world.  It's simply not who we are."  Three days prior, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas told MSNBC, "We need this resolved swiftly.  I anticipate that the results of the investigation will be available by the end of next week and I've committed to making the results public."

Report: Joe Biden Releases More than Half a Million Border Crossers into U.S..  More than half a million border crossers and illegal aliens have been released into the United States interior since January, predominately by President Joe Biden's administration, newly released data reveals.  In a letter to Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) revealed the extent to which the Biden administration is operating likely the most expansive Catch and Release process for border crossers and illegal aliens.

This Can't Be True.  This administration is doing real harm to a frighteningly wide swath of people every day, with every new policy and proclamation.  Now there's a new one that could be the most unbelievable thing ever:  Progressives want to give $450K to every illegal alien for the "psychological trauma" all of them suffered from being separated at the border during the Trump years.  Can they be serious?  The talk is that this will come about by executive order, bypassing Congress, where even some Democrats would likely reject this insanity.  If this happens, it exponentially increases the incentive to come here illegally.  It'll explode the national debt beyond all bounds of manageability.  It will crush the taxpayer and threaten the foundation of our economic system, from every angle.  Yet it's being talked about seriously.  Whether it actually comes to pass or not is not the point.  The point is that to the new Progressive way of thinking and governing, no entitlement is too much; no amount of government vote-buying bribery is beyond the pale.

Mayorkas admits Remain in Mexico policy works but administration launches second attempt to end it.  The Biden administration is making a second attempt at eliminating a Trump-era agreement with Mexico that proved to slow the flow of illegal migrants crossing the southern border.  The Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), commonly known as the Remain in Mexico policy, is to be reinstated in November under a court order.  Joe Biden eliminated the Remain in Mexico policy as one of his first acts as president.  With the sweep of a pen, Biden busily ended as much of the previous administration's policies and agreements with Mexico as possible.  Biden ran on eliminating border security measures, essentially caving to progressive activists who demand open borders.  His actions caused the Biden border crisis we now see, with hundreds of thousands of migrants flooding the southern border with impunity.

Biden's 'Build Back Better' Budget Includes $80B Wealth Transfer To Illegal Aliens.  President Joe Biden's "Build Back Better Act," a filibuster-proof $1.75 trillion budget reconciliation package, includes an $80 billion wealth transfer from Americans to illegal aliens via child tax credits.  This week, Democrats unveiled a reconciliation package that they negotiated with the Biden administration that would extend the Child Tax Credit (CTC) for another year and deliver billions of dollars to illegal aliens who would be able to claim the tax credit without ever having to work.  Specifically, as Breitbart News reported, estimates project that, if passed, the budget would provide illegal aliens with about $80 billion in child tax credits over the course of a decade — a massive cost to American taxpayers who would have to foot the bill.

Biden Administration Makes Insane Proposal of Million-Dollar Payouts to Illegals.  Rep. Doug Lamborn pointed out that $450,000 is more than the 9/11 victim's fund — and this new proposal is for people who entered our country completely illegally.  Can you imagine how many more are now making a beeline for our open border after hearing about this incredible largesse?  If you want to get some laughs, or maybe vengeance, take a look at the comments section on the Daily Mail's coverage of the story that ranges from "I'm a Democrat and this is the dumbest thing I ever heard" to Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) tweeting, "It's unthinkable to pay a burglar who broke into your home for the 'psychological trauma' they endured during the crime."  Well, maybe that's not funny.  In fact, the whole thing isn't very funny, when you think about it.

The true heinousness of the proposed $450,000 payments to illegal aliens.  The Biden administration, in cooperation with the American Civil Liberties Union, is preparing to excavate your wallet because some illegal immigrants were separated from their families for a short time when they criminally crossed our fenceless Southern border. [...] In many cases, the children and adults were not really part of the same family.  The adults simply rented the children from Mexican professional human-smuggling "coyotes" so the illegals could fake the special immigration status reserved for families.  Of course, even though everything the immigrants did was totally illegal, the ACLU found a welcoming administration in the Bidenistas.  According to the lawyers, the children suffered from heat exhaustion and malnutrition in the cages the Obama Administration built.  It does not matter that the heat exhaustion and malnutrition resulted from the kids' extended trek across the blazing hot Mexican desert with no food or water.  Once the young people crossed the border, they were put into air-conditioned detention centers, received three full meals a day, medical attention, and everything else you would expect in a typical government giveaway.

Biden Regime Rescinds Remain in Mexico Again Since It Costs Too Much.  The Biden administration is once again rescinding former President Trump's Remain in Mexico policy, according to TheHill.com.  He doesn't want anything to impede his open borders as millions of phony asylum seekers pour through.  The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) first moved in June to scrap the policy, which Trump introduced in 2019.  It mandates the mostly fake asylum seekers to await a potential ruling in their case in Mexico.  The Biden regime sued and won an initial victory from Texas and Missouri, which argued the Biden administration too hastily withdrew the policy.

What kind of "homeland security" is this?
DHS issues memo to cancel 'Remain in Mexico' border policy.  Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas issued a new memo Friday [10/29/2021] seeking to cancel the Trump-era "Remain in Mexico" border policy that helped solve the previous migrant surge.  The move comes even as Mr. Mayorkas is trying to restart the program under a federal judge's injunction.  In a lengthy memo, the Department of Homeland Security said the U.S. cannot assure the safety of people it pushes back across the border under the policy, officially known as the Migrant Protection Protocols, and the government doesn't want to spend the money needed to improve conditions in Mexico.

If the U.S. taxpayers began to spend money on refurbishing Mexico, every contiguous country from Guatemala to Argentina would demand the same.  Yes, Mexico is a mess.  Cleaning it up is Mexico's problem.  By all means, remain in Mexico — or Haiti, or wherever you're from.  The United States has plenty of unskilled freeloaders already.

Border Patrol tallies record 557 migrant deaths on US-Mexico border in 2021 fiscal year.  US Border Patrol recorded more migrant deaths on the US southern border in fiscal year 2021 than in any prior year on record, according to data shared by the agency Thursday [10/28/2021].  There were 557 Southwest border deaths during the fiscal year, which ended September 30.  That's up from 254 deaths in fiscal year 2020 and 300 deaths in 2019, marking a significant increase amid a 30-record year for border crossings.  The agency data on deaths dates to 1998.  A majority of migrant border deaths have been related to heat exposure, according to the agency.  Migrants often face dangerous terrain and can get lost as they try to make their way to the US.

The situation is probably far worse on the south side of the border.

Border crisis hits classrooms as unaccompanied minors flood NY schools.  America's crisis at the border is now a crisis in New York public schools.  The Biden Administration is flooding New York City and Long Island communities with thousands of unaccompanied immigrant minors captured crossing the Mexico-US border, often arriving here, as The Post recently reported, via clandestine flights in the middle of the night.  The arrival of these children, mostly teenage boys, in local schools is creating a classroom crisis that is strapping educational resources, costing taxpayers millions in un-budgeted dollars, and aiding gang-recruiting efforts, argue parents, teachers and immigration experts.  "We're at maxed capacity for kids with special needs, but they'll keep sending them," lamented one high school teacher in Queens, among the communities hardest hit by the illegal-immigrant student dump.

Biden Administration Expands List of 'Sensitive' Places Where Immigration Officers Cannot Make Arrests.  President Joe Biden's top homeland security official on Wednesday ordered immigration officers not to arrest illegal immigrants at a number of places, including food banks and shelters.  Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas detailed the safe spaces for illegal aliens in a memorandum to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers.  "Sensitive locations" where officers were barred from detaining people in the country illegally previously constituted of a small number of settings, including churches, hospitals, and schools.  The locations are now being referred to as "protected areas."  Mayorkas added social services establishments like homeless shelters, anywhere disaster or emergency relief is being provided, and places where children gather, including playgrounds, childcare centers, and school bus stops.

Migrant Caravan Marches to U.S. on Mexican Highway.  An estimated 3,000 to 5,000 mostly Central American and Haitian migrants continue their trek through southern Mexico to reach the United States.  The video shows a portion of the caravan filmed on Monday.  The video, provided by a source within CBP, was captured by Mexican authorities who are monitoring the group.  The video shows migrants pushing baby strollers and carrying personal belongings as they fill several lanes of a public highway.  According to the source, the group is still attempting to push through the southern state of Chiapas.  The source says the group has avoided at least one attempt by the National Institute of Migration (INM) and other Mexican authorities to deter them from continuing north.

The Biden administration's mind-boggling cash giveaway to illegal aliens.  Aside from exploitative nonprofits and opportunistic politicians, very few Americans invited illegal aliens to break our immigration laws intentionally — their very first act in the United States.  Indeed, many Americans have had negative interactions with illegals, examples of which we see on an almost daily basis.  Just the other day, a drunk-driving illegal alien killed a five-year-old girl, and there are other stories of thefts, robberies, sexual assaults.  There are very few things anyone can point to that would be considered a benefit to having them around.  Only crazed Democrats could find a way to excuse this.  Of course, Joe Biden has almost erased our southern border in an act of petty vindictiveness against President Trump and law-abiding Americans.

Biden administration is considering awarding $450,000 per person to families separated at the border under Trump's zero-tolerance policy.  The Biden administration is considering paying out a whopping $450,000 per person to families separated at the southern border as it tries to settle lawsuits with migrants who say the policy caused them lasting psychological damage.  Officials from the Departments of Justice, Homeland Security, and Health and Human Services are considering the payments that could total close to $1 million for two people within the same family, people familiar told the Wall Street Journal.  The American Civil Liberties Union, which represents the separated families, has identified about 5,500 children separated from parents at the border during the course of the Trump-era policy.

Biden Wants To Give Separated Illegal Immigrants $450,000 Per Person.  The Biden administration is mulling a plan to offer immigrant families separated during the Trump administration $450,000 per person in compensation, according to the Wall Street Journal, citing people familiar with the matter.  The payments [are] part of an inter-agency solution to several lawsuits filed on behalf of separated parents and children claiming lasting psychological trauma could amount to nearly $1 million per family, though 'the final numbers could shift,' according to the report.  According to sources, most of the families crossing into the US from Mexico included one parent and one child.  Depending on circumstances, many families could get smaller payouts.

Biden Administration In Talks To Pay Illegal Immigrants $450,000 Per Person.  If the Biden administration were trying to convince Americans it had little sympathy for the economic distress, growing shortages, and job uncertainty many are facing, one way to do it would be to offer an extreme amount of money to illegal immigrant families who claim they were victims of separations under Trump's zero-tolerance immigration policy.  It sounds insane, right?  Well brace yourselves.  That is, in fact, what the Biden administration is in talks to do. [...] Although the numbers aren't final, the payout could reach the staggering amount of more than $1 billion.  That's a whole lot of cheese for what the families say were health, mental and otherwise, problems caused by actions they themselves decided to inflict on their children when they made the decision to enter the country illegally.

Texas Republicans join Rep Chip Roy in calling for Sec Mayorkas' impeachment for 'undeniable and unavoidable damages' on US due to border crisis.  A number of Texas Republicans have signed on to Rep. Chip Roy's memo calling for the impeachment of Homeland Security Sec.  Alejandro Mayorkas, after the border officials apprehended a record 1.7 million migrants trying to cross illegally during the 2021 fiscal year.  The letter takes issue with Mayorkas terminating the border wall, failing to take adequate legal action against illegal migrants and causing CBP to become overwhelmed, releasing migrants into the interior of the US and refusing to enforce interior immigration laws.  Roy writes that Mayorkas has refused to expel most migrants under Title 42 and has ended the Migrant Protection Protocols, or the Remain in Mexico program.

Biden administration expands no-go zones where ICE can't arrest illegal immigrants.  The Department of Homeland Security has expanded its list of locations off-limits for enforcement to include anywhere near graveyards, community organization offices and any area where children "gather" — effectively blocking officers from making arrests across many urban areas.  The rules, issued Wednesday [10/27/2021], are designed to give illegal immigrants and others associated with them access to essential services without fear of arrest, said Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.  "This principle is fundamental," Mr. Mayorkas said in a memo.  "We can accomplish our enforcement mission without denying or limiting individuals' access to needed medical care, children access to their schools, the displaced access to food and shelter, people of faith access to their places of worship, and more."

The Editor says...
Here are a few words of feedback for Secretary Mayorkas:  [#1] The "displaced" are present in this country voluntarily.  We can safely presume that they knew it was illegal to cross the international border when they did so; thus, any inconvenience they suffer is their own fault.  [#2] The illegal immigrants you're so eager to serve (at taxpayers' expense) don't have a right to medical care, schools, food or shelter.  They are trespassers, not guests.  Whether they are sick, or hungry, or about to give birth, they should be swiftly deported.  The word will get around quickly.  [#3] "This principle is fundamental," Mr. Mayorkas.  If you had done your job, none of these unfortunate people would have made it into the U.S.

1,000 state troopers and Texas Rangers deploy to the border as 3,000 migrants prepare to arrive in days.  A unit of 1,000 state police officers and Texas Rangers assigned to monitor areas along the Lone Star State's 1,241 miles of border with Mexico is readying to guard against the next surge of migrants looking to defy President Joe Biden's administration.  A month has passed since Texas state law enforcement agents played a role in preventing some 15,000 migrants — mostly Haitians — from crossing the United States-Mexico border.  The state troopers and Rangers would be expected to do the same in the coming days, but with a smaller caravan of migrants predominantly led by Central Americans that is marching through southern Mexico toward the United States.

New Migrant Caravan Clashes With Mexican Feds Before March To U.S..  A caravan of thousands of migrants, mostly Haitian and Central Americans, started making their way to Mexico City with the intent of reaching the U.S. border.  Migrants clashed with immigration authorities and broke through blockades set in southern Mexico.  Officials estimate between 2,000 to 3,100 people formed the initial caravan over the weekend with additional migrants expected to join along the way, potentially swelling the group's size to 5,000, Noticieros Televisa reported.

Democrats Are Actively Seeking To Eradicate America's Unique Culture.  Right now, the open border is a national stab wound.  Democrats are deliberately keeping the wound open. [...] After all, they seem quite capable of defending turf when they want to.  When they actually care about protecting something — like themselves, for example — they're suddenly highly competent, fully capable of finding money and resources, and able to things done.  They built a wall.  That's one example.  They built it around the Capital Building, remember?  It was up and fully functional within days.  They also seem extremely good at keeping people out of certain areas when it's time to oversee vote-counting during an election, or when it's time to protect their personal homes or gated neighborhoods.  But when it's our homes or neighborhoods, suddenly they're flummoxed.  But why would they be doing it on purpose?  Answer:  to gain power.

Massive Illegal Immigrant Zombie Horde Barrels Right Through Mexican Forces, Heads Towards America.  A massive and organized migrant caravan is on its way from southern Mexico toward the U.S., and has already surged past a blockade by Mexican forces attempting to stop it from getting to the U.S.-Mexico border.  Organizers tell Fox News that there are thousands of migrants in the caravan, setting off from Tapachula, Mexico — some carrying American flags and signs with President Biden's name.  Tapachula is in the south of the country on the border with Guatemala.  The caravan is not merely a group of migrants congregating together, organizers made migrants who wished to participate in the caravan to register with a QR code on their phones or a web link to participate.

Nine months that shook the world:  A list of Biden's failures.  [For example,] The southern border.  While Biden all but said his hands were tied by Trump's agreement to take our troops out of Afghanistan, he felt no such need to continue the stay-in-Mexico policy for refugees that Trump successfully negotiated with the Mexican president.  The result is the ongoing crisis at the southern border.  Illegal crossings at that border have soared since January.  A record number — 1.7 million — have illegally entered the nation at that border so far in 2021.  They are unmasked and not checked to see if they are infected by the COVID-19 virus.

Border Patrol to fire up to 5K agents over vaccine mandate.  U.S. Border Patrol plans to fire agents who don't receive the COVID-19 vaccine.  According to reports on Friday, the agency is looking to enforce Joe Biden's federal vaccine mandate by the end of November.  They said those who refuse to do so without an approved religious or medical exemption could face action up to termination.  Critics have said this would only further complicate the crisis at the southern border, where over 1.5 million illegal immigrants have crossed in 2021 alone.  Arizona Rep. Andy Biggs (R) said he believes as many as 5,000 agents could separate from Border Patrol over the issue.

Illegal aliens aren't required to have vaccinations, but the Border Patrol is.  To whom does that make any sense?

192,001 migrants caught in September; border notches one of worst years on record.  Homeland Security reported another 192,001 encounters with illegal immigrants on the southwestern border in September, topping off one of the worst fiscal years on record.  The monthly total marked a slight decline from July and August, which Customs and Border Protection touted as a needed improvement.  But the numbers were still startlingly bad for an administration that insists it has things under control along the boundary with Mexico.

Tens of thousands of Brazilians and Venezuelans illegally cross US-Mexico border.  Tens of thousands of migrants from South America have flown into Mexico and crossed into a remote part of Arizona since late summer, as word spreads far beyond Central America that the United States's southern border is penetrable, according to two people familiar with the change in migration trends.  More than 7,000 Brazilians and Venezuelans were encountered illegally crossing the border near Yuma in August, an unusually high number of people to come from countries outside the usual El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Mexico, whose citizens most often flee to the U.S.

Why Is Biden Moving Refugees.  Not only does Biden prefer foreigners over his fellow Americans, he lacks the integrity to be transparent about it.  How else could one explain the fact that his administration is dispersing illegal aliens throughout the country via secret flights under cover of darkness?  If Americans supported allowing unchecked numbers of foreigners into the country, this kind of subterfuge would not be necessary.  To land these planes in broad daylight, however, would invite protests and images that would embarrass the Biden White House, like those from the shameful Afghanistan retreat and the more than 10,000 Haitians under that bridge in Del Rio, Texas.  So instead, untold numbers of foreigners are being dumped into communities while their citizens are asleep and none the wiser.  That is neither transparent, competent, nor compassionate.  Such chicanery creates another battle over states' rights versus federal authority, and the anti-border crowd's duplicity on the issue is predictable.  During the Trump Administration, "the resistance" was all-in for the cause of cities and states with sanctuary laws that harbor illegal aliens from deportation.

Levin: Migrant flights 'all about politics', targeting suburbs: 'They're not going to Newark or Camden'.  Fox News host Mark Levin said Tuesday [10/19/2021] he believes there is a clear geopolitical aspect to the Biden administration's secretive migrant flights and ensuing shuttling of illegal immigrants to suburban locations in the Mid-Atlantic and South.  Levin cited the New York Post's bombshell report from earlier in the week that revealed thousands of young migrants landing in the dead of night at Westchester Airport in White Plains, New York, where the passengers are then bused to various drop off points.  "Aren't you sick of government operating this way, under cover of dark — without the American people even knowing what's taking place?" Levin asked his audience on "The Mark Levin Show on Westwood One", calling out liberal mainstream newspapers for largely ignoring the situation.

Migrants using QR code to organize caravan headed toward Mexico City.  Migrants from Central American countries and Haiti are turning to technology to organize a caravan headed toward the country's capitol where they intend to ask immigration officials there for help establishing their refugee status to avoid getting deported from the country.  A QR code is being shared among migrants that links to an online consent form saying the person agrees to pay for their own travel expenses.  The announcement is in Spanish and Haitian Creole, according to the organization Pueblos Unidos Migrantes.  Most migrants are heading north from Tapachula, Chiapas, Mexico after growing frustrated while waiting for permission from Mexico's National Institute for Migration to stay in the country as refugees.

Facebook users [are] allowed to share advice, tips on crossing border illegally.  Facebook has acknowledged it allows people to share information on how to immigrate illegally or be smuggled into the U.S., saying it crafted the policy to give them a shot at asylum and prevent them from relying on human traffickers.  The company made the admission in a private letter to Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich.  Mr. Brnovich was stunned by the revelation and wrote a letter late last week to the Justice Department.  He asked U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland to open an investigation into the social media giant and find a way to "stop its active encouragement and facilitation of illegal entry."

There's a Reason Why Most Don't Know About Joe Biden's Secret Flights.  We all know the border is a mess. [...] Of all the crises engulfing this White House, this one was avoidable.  Biden just decided to create a new one because a) he is a legitimate moron, and b) he wanted to show the Democratic base he wasn't Trump.  Well, Trump had it right on the border and nothing says failure than scurrying around a bunch of illegals in the dead of night to avoid the press.  For weeks, the Biden administration has been transporting illegal minors in the dead of night, but The New York Post did some digging around. [...] Send them home, Joe.  That's what you should do, but you won't.  You probably don't know what's going on, just like in Afghanistan, just like with your jobs plan, just like with spiking inflation, or the global supply chain crisis.  You don't know because you cannot do the job.  You're mentally too slow.  You're inept.  And you cannot do this from the basement.  Also, you need to answer questions.

GOP Rep. Tony Gonzales says 100,000 migrants are heading towards the US from Central America and 52 were stopped in Panama because of terrorism ties.  Texas Republican Rep. Tony Gonzalez said Monday [10/18/2021] that Panama foreign minister Erica Mouynes told him that as many as 100,000 migrants have crossed through her country on the way to the US, and 52 of those they apprehended had ties to al-Qaeda.  Speaking on the 'Real America' podcast with GOP chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, the San Antonio congressman said the situation in Del Rio, Texas is the 'worst I've ever seen it.'  He said that Mouynes came to visit him and a number of other lawmakers to get word out about the coming onslaught.

Ted Cruz wants to ship illegal immigrants to Democratic states.  Tired of having Texas bear the brunt of the border crisis, Sen. Ted Cruz is proposing a different idea:  Ship newly arrived illegal immigrants to deep blue territories like New England or California, and see how they handle it.  He even proposed putting one of the new ports of entry for processing illegal immigrants in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, which is President Biden's vacation retreat.  The Republican senator on Tuesday [10/19/2021] announced his bill, the Stop the Surge Act, which he said would bring the border problems straight to "where Democrat elites host their cocktail parties."

Ted Cruz Introduces Bill That Would Send Illegal Immigrants To The Towns Of Rich White Liberals For Processing.  In the midst of the ongoing border crisis, Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz filed legislation on Tuesday that would establish processing centers for illegal immigrants in areas such as Martha's Vineyard and other Democrat-led communities.  Earlier this month, Cruz said:  "For the past ten months, President Biden and his administration have willingly surrendered the United States' southern border to dangerous criminal cartels, with no thought given to the South Texas border communities like McAllen and Del Rio, which are running low on resources from dealing with this massive influx of illegal immigrants[.]"  The legislation was introduced before Cruz made his statement.

In New York it's now illegal to threaten to report someone to ICE.  It is now illegal in New York to threaten to report someone's immigration status.  Gov. Kathy Hochul signed into law last week a bill that classifies such threats as extortion or coercion.  Previously, such threats were treated as a crime solely in cases of labor and sex trafficking.  "This legislation will protect New Yorkers from bad actors who use extortion or coercion due to their immigration status, and make our state safer against vile threats and intimidation," Hochul said in a press release.  California, Colorado, Maryland and Virginia have enacted similar pieces of legislation.

Joe Biden Jetting Planeloads of Cabinet, Aides to Europe to Combat Climate Change.  Joe Biden will demonstrate his determination to fight climate change by flying more than a dozen Cabinet members across the Atlantic next week — in several passenger jets consuming tons of fossil fuels at high altitudes.  Plus, of course, Biden's own customized 747 Air Force One with remote-control window shades.  Biden will take the four-engine goliath another 2,450 miles to Rome and back for what seems like yet another monthly G-20 meeting.  And then, of course, when in Rome, the ardent abortion advocate will flaunt his Roman Catholic faith in an audience with Pope Francis, trying to snuff simmering rumors of his impending excommunication.  All this for the Democrat to show participants in the U.N.'s Climate Change Conference in Glasgow how all-in he is to save the global environment from the terrible things that other wanton humans are doing to cause and worsen global warming for their own ends.

Biden secretly flying underage migrants into NY in dead of night.  Planeloads of underage migrants are being flown secretly into suburban New York in an effort by President Biden's administration to quietly resettle them across the region, The [New York] Post has learned.  The charter flights originate in Texas, where the ongoing border crisis has overwhelmed local immigration officials, and have been underway since at least August, according to sources familiar with the matter.  Last week, The Post saw two planes land at the Westchester County Airport, where most of the passengers who got off appeared to be children and teens, with a small portion appearing to be men in their 20s.  Westchester County cops stood by as the passengers — whose flights arrived at 10:49 p.m.  Wednesday and 9:52 p.m.  Friday — got off and piled into buses.  Some of them were later seen meeting up with relatives or sponsors in New Jersey, or being dropped off at a residential facility on Long Island.

It's 28 dollars per capita.  What will that buy?  The added bureaucracy will cost more than that.
Biden administration provides $20 million to assist 700,000 migrants seeking asylum in US.  The U.S. government announced Friday it will provide more than $20 million to nearly 700,000 asylum seeks, refugees and vulnerable migrants in Central America and Mexico.  The additional funding, provided through the Department of State's Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM), will "help meet urgent humanitarian needs," and brings the total humanitarian assistance for Central America and Mexico to more than $331 million for Fiscal Year 2021, according to the state department's spokesperson Ned Price.

Lawrence Jones blasts Biden admin over border catastrophe: 'Get down here and do your job!'  'Fox & Friends" reporter Lawrence Jones described what is going on at the U.S. border involving the danger the cartels pose to the National Guard while bluntly telling the Biden administration to "get down here and do your job."  The Texas Department of Public Safety is reporting that suspected cartel members were taunting Texas National Guard troops and firing shots across the border at them in Roma, Texas this week, according to Fox News.  Lawrence Jones was on the ground with Texas officials getting a firsthand look at what was transpiring there.  "It was rough out there when it comes to what these National Guardsmen are dealing with as well the troopers on the ground," Jones stated.  "We can't confirm they are part of the cartel, we just know the cartel works with these people."

Border Agents Feel Hopeless: 'We're not making any difference'.  Morale among Border Patrol agents has plummeted to an all-time low as they struggle to process unprecedented volumes of illegal immigrants, while knowing they're unable to secure the border against cartel activity.  Many blame their own leadership for enabling it.  "Day after day, they just look like they want to eat their gun," an agent told The Epoch Times, referring to some local agents in the Rio Grande Valley Sector, who he says are bearing the brunt of it.  "They just look like hell.  It's hard to put it — you just start seeing the life leaving people's faces."

Biden's Deputies Resign Over Chaotic Immigration Policy: 'Complete Lack Of Direction'.  A handful of open-border zealots and advocates of immigration enforcement as a deterrent have quit President Joe Biden's agencies amid infighting between the two camps over the president's chaotic and unpopular migration policies.  The political turmoil born out of the Haitian migrant caravan that gathered at a makeshift camp in Del Rio, Texas, laid bare the months-long internal rift between political appointees with vastly different views on immigration.

Biden to reimplement Trump's Remain in Mexico in November.  The Biden administration told the courts late Thursday that it plans to reimplement the Trump-era "Remain in Mexico" policy in mid-November if it can get buy-in from the neighboring government.  The move comes after an initial victory by Texas and Missouri in a suit that argued the Biden administration too hastily withdrew the policy, under which the U.S. transported 70,000 asylum-seekers to Mexico to await a determination in their case.  The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has appealed the case and is working on a memo to rescind the program anew, but it is still required to reimplement what was formally termed the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) "in good faith."

The rise of the middle class migration:  South American families are flying to Mexico, getting a cab and crossing illegally into US, Yuma border chief claims.  While hundreds of thousands of poor migrants seeking asylum in the U.S. have trekked on foot from South and Central America in the last eight months, there has also been a rise in middle class migrants flooding the southern border.  These so-called middle class migrants often fly to Mexico's northern border on pre-planned flights and cross into the U.S. by cab or another car hire, a Border Patrol chief in Arizona told the Wall Street Journal.  'They got off the plane and went to a cab or to a bus,' Chris Clem, Border Patrol's chief patrol agent in Yuma, said.

CBP to Report Record of Nearly 2 Million Migrants Encountered in 2021.  U.S. Customs and Border Protection is set to report just under 2 million migrant encounters nationwide for the recently ended Fiscal Year 2021.  The number of migrants encountered by Border Patrol agents and CBP officers jumped 202 percent over the previous year's roughly 647,000.  CBP Officers and Border Patrol agents encountered nearly 1.96 million migrants nationwide during FY21 which ended on September 30, according to a highly placed source operating under the umbrella of the Department of Homeland Security.  A document from the agency reviewed by Breitbart Texas revealed the record-breaking level of migrant encounters along the U.S.-Mexico Border.

The Time Has Come To Nobly Save Or Meanly Lose.  Our country is being invaded by hundreds of thousands of persons of unknown character and health.  In addition to COVID, diseases unknown in the United States for decades are entering our shores.  The government is sending sociopaths, the mentally ill, and terrorists to live in our communities.  Our federal laws do not allow persons to enter the country unvetted.  Therefore, we must demand that the laws be faithfully executed and that Congress pass no new spending bills until the border is closed and an assessment can be made.

Leaked documents reveal shocking numbers of illegal migrants [are being] released into the U.S..  The number of illegal migrants released into the United States by the Biden administration is staggering.  Fox News obtained an exclusive story with documents from the Border Patrol.  They are being released with little or no supervision and no fear of deportation.  The fact is that no matter how many times DHS Secretary Mayorkas says the border is closed, the numbers don't lie.  Since March, at least 160,000 illegal migrants have been released into the United States.  There is a broad use of limited parole authority that made more than 30,000 migrants eligible for work permits since August.  To point to the obvious, that's 30,000 jobs taken from legal residents.

DHS drafts plan to allow fraudsters to keep citizenship.  The Homeland Security Department is circulating a draft proposal that would severely curtail its attempts to strip citizenship from people who were naturalized based on fraud.  The Washington Times saw a draft of the memo, from Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to the heads of the three immigration agencies.  The memo says people might not apply for citizenship because they worry about losing it in the future.  "Naturalized citizens deserve finality and security in their rights as citizens," the memo says.  "Department policies should not cause a chilling effect or barriers for lawful permanent residents seeking to naturalize."

DHS Chief Orders ICE to End Mass Raids of Workplaces of Suspected Illegal Aliens.  Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas issued a memo Tuesday [10/12/2021] ordering immigration and border agents to stop raids and arrests at workplaces of suspected illegal aliens.  "The deployment of mass worksite operations, sometimes resulting in the simultaneous arrest of hundreds of workers, was not focused on the most pernicious aspect of our country's unauthorized employment challenge: exploitative employers," Mayorkas said in the three-page memo.  "These highly visible operations misallocated enforcement resources while chilling, and even serving as a tool of retaliation for, worker cooperation in workplace standards investigations."  The memo [...] calls the agencies to shift their focus toward "unscrupulous employers who exploit the vulnerability of undocumented workers."

DHS Secretary:  As Many as 12,000 Illegal Haitian Immigrants Released Into the US in Recent Days.  Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas said on Sept. 26 that a significant number of Haitian illegal immigrants who had amassed along the U.S.-Mexico border last week are being released into the United States.  About 12,400 of 17,000 Haitians are having their cases heard by immigration courts, Mayorkas said, adding that some 5,000 are being processed by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).  Only about 3,000 are in detention, he said.  "Approximately, I think it's about 10,000 or so, 12,000," Mayorkas told "Fox News Sunday" when he was asked about the number of Haitian illegal aliens who have been released into the interior of the United States.  The number could rise as 5,000 more cases are processed, he said.

Leaked Biden Admin Border Patrol Docs Show 'Mass Release' Of 160,000 Illegal Immigrants.  Leaked documents from Customs and Border Protection (CBP) obtained by Fox News' Bill Melugin show that the Biden administration initiated a "mass release" of 160,000 illegal immigrants into the United States beginning in March amid a record-setting number of border crossings — and 70,000 of those releases happened in the last two months.  "At least 160,000 illegal immigrants have been released into the U.S., often with little to no supervision, by the Biden administration since March — including a broad use of limited parole authorities to make more than 30,000 eligible for work permits since August," according to Fox News. 'The documents give a partial snapshot into how the Biden administration has been releasing enormous numbers of migrants into the U.S., often with little to no oversight, supervision or immediate risk of deportation."  Melugin posted some of the documents on Twitter, and they appear to show that the U.S. government has released around 90,000 asylum seekers, who crossed the border illegally and eventually encountered CBP, with "notices to report" — a demand letter that requires the immigrants to check in with an Immigrant and Customs Enforcement (ICE) office when they settle in an American city and begin the asylum process.

Ri-i-i-ight.  They'll either "begin the asylum process," or they'll begin the disappearance process.

Leaked Border Patrol docs show mass release of illegal immigrants into US by Biden administration.  At least 160,000 illegal immigrants have been released into the U.S., often with little to no supervision, by the Biden administration since March — including a broad use of limited parole authorities to make more than 30,000 eligible for work permits since August, Border Patrol documents obtained by Fox News show.  The documents give a partial snapshot into how the Biden administration has been releasing enormous numbers of migrants into the U.S., often with little to no oversight, supervision or immediate risk of deportation.  Since March 20, at least 94,570 illegal immigrants have been released into the U.S. with Notices to Report.  Those who receive such a notice are only required to check in with an ICE office when they get to their final destination — which could be anywhere across the country.  Those who check in are not deported or detained as their immigration proceedings move forward.

Orchestrated crisis to bring tens of thousands of people to southern border in coming weeks.  Tens of thousands of migrants from other countries are making their way north to the southern border, an open border activist and government officials warn.  Irineo Mujica, Director of Pueblo Sin Fronteras, an NGO that provides "shelter and safety to migrants and refugees in transit" and accompanies them "in their journey," says a new Haitian caravan is making its way to the U.S. border from Tapachula, Mexico.  He also says 800 Haitians and Central Americans are crossing the Guatemalan border every day making their way north.  The Haitian caravan is supposed to leave around Oct. 25 from Mexico, with or without clearance from Mexico, he says.

DHS secretary orders ICE to stop targeting illegal immigrants at jobs.  Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas issued new orders Tuesday halting ICE from going after large numbers of illegal immigrants at job sites, saying it is a waste of resources and actually helps unscrupulous employers abuse unauthorized workers.  Mr. Mayorkas said he wants his department's three immigration agencies to come up with new strategies to target employers while leaving the illegal immigrants unscathed.  But those solutions are in the future.  For now, he said, "mass worksite operations" must cease.

Migrant Caravan Activist Says They Are 'Ready For War'.  A new Haitian caravan is headed for the United States in 20 states and the man leading them says they are prepared for "war."  The migrant caravan advocate who is in Southern Mexico says that his group is going to head to the U.S. border from Tapachula around Oct. 25, a Border Report translation said.  "We are leaving in 20 days," Irineo Mujica said in a video shared on Tuesday on social media.  "We prefer to march with (travel) papers. [...] And this time, with papers or without papers, we are ready for war.  If the National Guard comes and they are cowardly enough to beat women and children, let them prepare because God's hand is with us."

If God's hand is with you, why do you have to move to the U.S.?

Biden Admin Cancels Border Wall Contracts As U.S. Expects Record Surge In Illegal Immigration.  Democrat President Joe Biden's administration announced on Friday that it is canceling multiple contracts to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border as U.S. Border Patrol braces for a record surge in illegal immigration in October.  The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced that the Biden administration will "cancel the remaining border barrier contracts located within U.S. Border Patrol's (USBP) Laredo Sector and all border barrier contracts located in the Rio Grande Valley Sector." [...] The Biden administration's announcement comes just days after reports that the administration is expecting a surge of up to 400,000 migrants attempting to illegally cross the southern border in October — nearly double the 21-year record broken in July, when over 210,000 migrants illegally crossed the southern border.  The day after the news broke of the expected surge in illegal immigration, Rodney Scott, the Biden administration's former chief of the United States Border Patrol, revealed that the Biden administration had "shut down" investments in new technology to secure the border.

Exposing the Left's Border Scam Is Now a 'Hate Crime'.  Like Prohibition-era bootleggers unloading barrels of whiskey in broad daylight, the anti-borders Left has been flouting the law in public for decades as it enables a vast and profitable human trafficking operation through south Texas.  In today's gaslit, no-accountability culture, the problem isn't finding the crime, but in naming the perpetrators and exposing their motives.  Financial gain is obviously a big incentive in the immigration scam against America.  Numerous beneficiaries include the cartels that traffic the people, "charities" that get a piece of the action for moving the human cargo throughout the country, and stateside businesses that reap the benefit of cheap foreign labor.  These parties seem largely indifferent to being called out for their roles in the scam.  It comes from a confidence in knowing that, regardless of who knows what, the operation will roll on without so much as a speed bump.

Mexican cartels firing machine guns across the Rio Grande at National Guard troops.  I believe that there's a word for a situation in which munitions are fired across an international border aimed at troops defending that border.  It is a "war."  Fox News' Bill Melugin — the preeminent journalist on the story of our southern border — captured video of tracer rounds at night coming across the Rio Grande, and the taunts that accompanied them.

Clearly an act of war:
Mexican cartel fires a machine gun across the border into the US with bullets zipping above a National Guard observation post as migrants flood in.  Suspected members of a Mexican cartel were caught on video firing multiple rounds of bullets across the border into Texas on Thursday [10/7/2021].  The footage was captured by a reporter amid reports that Texas National Guard members in Starr County have seen cartel gunfights increase near the border recently.  Fox's Bill Melugin, who claimed to have seen everything, added that the National Guardsmen were not certain whether this was a shootout or just meant to intimidate.

Arizona border just as 'out of control' as Texas, Gov. Doug Ducey warns.  Texas has been the center of the border crisis, but Arizona is also in peril and bearing the brunt of Mexican cartels' smuggling of people into the United States at record-high levels, its governor said.  "What's already happening in Yuma is reflective of what's happening on the Texas border," Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey said in an interview with the Washington Examiner in Mission, Texas.  "Arizona is a border state.  We faced this before, but we've never faced a crisis this large in 21 years."

Biden apologizes to Haiti, but not Americans, for Haitian land invasion of United States.  You may not have liked his 'mean' tweets or his demeanor on the national or global stage, but one thing extremely positive about Donald Trump is that he was the most "America First" president we've had since Ronald Reagan.  Everything Trump did, policy wise, was done in regard to how it would first benefit America and Americans.  Never once did he put other people or other countries' interests ahead of ours.  And for that, nearly 75 million people voted to reelect him last fall, the most ever for a Republican nominee (we can talk some other time about the phony 81 million votes Joe Biden allegedly got).  But speaking of Biden, the 'America First' policies are gone with Trump, and it's obvious in everything the mind-addled 'president' does.

69 Percent of Hispanics Disapprove of Biden's Handling of Immigration.  Amid the border crisis, which escalated last week with the apprehension of over ten thousand Haitian migrants, President Biden has fallen out of favor with the majority of Hispanic Americans over his handling of immigration policy.  Sixty-nine percent of Hispanics disapprove of Biden's handling of immigration, while only 23 percent approve, according to a new Quinnipiac poll released Wednesday [10/6/2021].  As for the Biden administration's handling of deportations of illegal aliens, 41 percent of Hispanic respondents say it is "not aggressive enough" while 20 percent say Biden has been "acting appropriately."  As thousands of Haitian migrants have been released into the country, under the pretense that they will return for a court date in a couple of years to have their asylum cases adjudicated, many Republican lawmakers predict that they will disappear into the interior, if historical patterns hold.

More than 400,000 sneaked over southern border and got away in past year, former Border Patrol head says.  The U.S. Border Patrol reported more than 400,000 people who illegally crossed the border were able to get away without being arrested over just the past 12 months, according to the agency's previous leader.  "We have over 400,000 documented gotaways, people or incidents, where people cross the border, got away this last year," former Border Patrol Chief Rodney Scott said in an interview that aired on Fox News Tuesday evening [10/5/2021].

Ugandan Family That Paid 5k To Mexican Smugglers Caught On Cam Being Escorted Onto Plane Without IDs.  From 100 Percent Fed Up:  On July 15, retired ICE Special Agent Victor Avila bought a ticket to fly on an American Airlines partner, One World from McAllen, TX.  While waiting in a room filled with illegal aliens waiting to be shipped to their new homes in various communities across America, he struck up a conversation with a woman from Uganda.  According to Victor Avila, "The women from Uganda spoke perfect English and was more than happy to share" information on how she made it from Uganda to the United States.  The Ugandan woman, who was preparing to board the American Airlines flight in McAllen, TX, told Avila that she, her husband, and toddler were headed for Portland, Oregon.  Victor asked her how they got from Uganda to McAllen, Texas?  The Ugandan woman explained that she and her family flew directly from Uganda to Mexico City, Mexico, where they met with a smuggler who they paid $5,000 per family member to secure their passage across the Mexican border to Texas.  [Video clip]

Biden's Migrant Crisis Is Getting People Killed.  Recent reports indicate that a significant number of migrants attempting to make the journey to the southern border have died along the way.  The issue is migrants attempting to make it to the southern border by walking through the Darien Gap, which CBS News describes as "a 60-mile stretch of lawless jungle."  Migrants are traveling through the Darien Gap to reach Panama, and from there, continue on to the southern border.  The report notes that "at least 50 bodies have reportedly been found this year, but the real death toll is estimated to be four times higher."  The Darien Gap is particularly dangerous due to harsh conditions — especially in summer weather — and the presence of cartels and gangs, who prey upon those seeking to gain entry to the United States.

Noncitizen Voting in Vermont [is] Part of Democrats' 'Long Game'.  Noncitizens will be able to vote in two Vermont cities as part of a growing national trend, unless lawsuits prevent new laws from taking effect.  The cities of Montpelier, with about 7,375 residents, and Winooski, with about 7,335, both will allow noncitizens to vote in local elections for offices such as mayor, city council, and school board.  Related changes to the two city charters required the approval of voters as well as the state's Democrat-controlled Legislature, which in June overrode a veto by Vermont Gov. Phil Scott, a Republican.  "These are very liberal cities with progressive Democrats," Rob Roper, president of the Ethan Allen Institute, a free-market think tank based in Montpelier, told The Daily Signal.

Unsustainable.  At the end of September, Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas issued a memo to Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials laying out new guidelines for enforcing immigration law.  Mayorkas's memo would exempt from deportation most illegal immigrants who entered the United States before November 2020 unless they had some connection to terrorism or had engaged in serious criminal conduct.  The new approach could both worsen problems at the southern border and make a badly needed political settlement on immigration harder to attain.  The word "immigrant" does not occur once in Mayorkas's memo.  Instead, he classifies illegal immigrants as "undocumented noncitizens."  Mayorkas declares that "the fact an individual is a removable noncitizen therefore should not alone be the basis of an enforcement action against them."  Under the terms of the memo, someone being in the country illegally would not be sufficient reason for the federal government to pursue deportation.

Texas braces for surge of 60,000 Haitian migrants.  State officials are bracing for what could be the largest surge of migrants ever to attempt to enter the country illegally from Mexico, weeks after thousands of Haitians did so.  While border security falls under the federal government's responsibility, the Biden administration has significantly reined in the Border Patrol and Immigration and Customs Enforcement.  This has resulted in fewer deportations and many people being released into the United States after illegally crossing the border, potentially incentivizing more illegal migration.  Overwhelmed Border Patrol agents have been pulled from the border to process people in custody, leaving the border unguarded in many regions.

Catch-and-release at border up more than 430,000% in August.  What a difference a year makes on the border.  In August 2020, the Trump administration managed something stunning.  Border Patrol agents caught more than 47,000 illegal immigrants and immediately released just 10 of them into the interior.  This August, under President Biden, the Border Patrol made more than 195,000 arrests and released 43,941 people — an increase of more than 430,000%.  Security experts say that's the difference between a secure border and an unprecedented migrant surge.

Lucky us:  Illegal alien militants plan more obnoxious protests.  At a time when illegals are surging to the border in historic numbers, and public support for amnesty is collapsing, it would seem logical for illegal alien amnesty activists to just lie low.  But nope, they've decided that now's about the time to step up the obnoxious, disruptive protests, along with harassment of U.S. elected officials.  And if things go as they've always gone, it will once again be to their grief.

Guess what else showed up in the reconciliation bill for illegal aliens.  I suppose we should have seen this one coming, particularly considering the malarkey that the Democrats have been trying to shovel into the so-called reconciliation bill from day one.  After failing twice to convince the Senate Parliamentarian to allow some form of general amnesty for illegal aliens as part of what is supposed to be a spending bill, some actual spending has now shown up.  Only this facet also represents a significant policy change, and possibly an illegal one at that.  Stowed away in the bill is a provision that would allow anyone residing in the United States who provides an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) to apply for the Child Tax Credit.  Currently, all filers are required to provide a Social Security Number.

Border Patrol Union's Judd: 'I've Never Seen the Morale Any Lower than It Is Right Now'.  Even though President Joe Biden has been in office only eight-and-a-half months, his policies have had a remarkably negative impact on the morale of the Border Patrol, according to National Border Patrol Council president Brandon Judd.  During an interview [...] Judd, whose organization is the Border Patrol's union, said he had never seen morale any lower than right now and blamed Biden directly.

Between Afghanistan and Immigration, Have We Ever Had a Less Competent President?  [Scroll down]  The second completely self-generated Biden crisis is immigration.  As with many other issues, it's now apparent that more than anything else, Biden's goal was to undo what former President Donald Trump had done on immigration.  The dominant far-left activist wing of his party had campaigned on open borders.  This is not a concept that sane people find comforting.  Countries need borders.  Biden claims to understand this, but his actions to date have destroyed the border security measures in place when he took office.  To recap, when Trump first took office, the southern border was in crisis.  Human smugglers and left-wing activists realized there was no need to sneak across our border; if a migrant showed up and claimed political asylum and a fear of persecution in their home country, we would release them to an American community until a hearing could be held.  The vast majority would then never show up for the hearing.  Our goodwill was abused by those seeking to game our system.

Democrats need better arguments for their agenda than 'Orange Man Bad'.  Incautiously, Democrats plunged into policymaking without making anything like cognizable policy arguments.  Trump had reduced illegal immigration by extending walls on the Mexican border and persuading Mexico's president to hold asylum-seekers in Mexico until their (usually baseless) claims could be ruled on.  Both policies were ditched on Day 1 of the Biden administration.  The policy argument:  "Orange man bad."  Now, we see the easily predictable results.  Border apprehensions are headed toward 2 million this year — the highest since the 1998-2000 boom years.  So-called asylum-seekers from Central America have been joined by Middle Easterners, Africans and, most recently, by some 20,000 Haitians, previously settled in Chile and Brazil, huddled under a bridge heading to Del Rio, Texas.  Vice President Kamala Harris' pathetic plea, "Don't come," has been overwhelmed by the evidence that most of those who do come illegally are ushered into the United States and told to meet court dates that everyone knows most won't.  The likely result is something like 1 million new illegal immigrants in the United States this year.

DHS Prepared for Worst-Case October Scenario in Which 400,000 Illegal Migrants Pour Across Border.  DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas asked department officials if they were prepared for a "worst-case" scenario in which 400,000 illegal immigrants rushed across the southern border in the month of October alone, according to reporting from NBC.  Such a massive inflow of migrants across the southern border would have smashed the records for the most illegal immigration in one month, which Biden's administration broke in July with 210,000 migrants entering the United States.  Mayorkas was concerned with the pending termination of Title 42, a public health authority implemented by the Trump administration that allowed quick expulsion of illegals on account of the coronavirus.  A liberal judge had ordered the Biden administration to cease use of Title 42 in September, with the ruling taking effect on Thursday [9/30/2021].  However, at the last minute, a federal appeals court upheld the legality of Title 42, keeping it in place.

Isn't this what the telephone is for?
Biden aides dispatched to Haiti for listening tour as 60,000 migrants head toward border.  Two senior U.S. diplomats met face to face with leaders in Haiti this week as the Biden administration looks to stabilize its approach to the island nation and calm pressures from home.  Brian Nichols, President Joe Biden's newly confirmed assistant secretary of state for Western Hemisphere affairs, and Juan Gonzalez, National Security Council senior director, arrived in Port-au-Prince Thursday [9/30/2021] after a stop in Miami.  There, they met with Haitian and Cuban American leaders to discuss the challenges facing both of their countries.

DHS fears up to 400,000 migrants could cross the border in October.  Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas reportedly asked his officials whether the department was ready to handle the possibility of up to 400,000 migrants, nearly double the 21-year high seen in July, crossing the border in October.  Despite public attempts to appear in control of the situation at the southwest border, a phone call between Mayorkas and senior officials earlier this week shows a Biden administration scrambling to contain a growing crisis.  Mayorkas asked on the call if the border was ready for a worst-case scenario of 350,000 to 400,000 migrants crossing the border next month, two DHS officials told NBC.

New Mayorkas memo effectively opens the border.  Anyone who's an economic migrant looking for a job can come in now.  There won't be any more instant deportations on COVID, or even recent-crosser grounds.  No need for the family thing anymore, no need to travel in families or send a child in alone; you can be a single, military-aged young man traveling alone, and you can break into the U.S. and still find yourself at to the bottom of the enforcement priority list.  A deportation won't happen.  What's more, Mayorkas says every migrant they apprehend, assuming they will do that at all, needs to be fully vetted and background-checked for terrorist, espionage, and criminal proclivities before becoming a priority for deportation.  Good luck with that.

Destroying America, Overtly or Covertly.  It's almost laughable to hear some in the liberal media claim we have a "moral obligation" to help immigrants when we are ignoring the plight of women in Afghanistan and so many other areas to which the word "moral" might rightly be attached.  Reaction to the open border has been as predictable as the coming of the fall season.  Some Democratic progressives shout "racism" because the latest flood includes Haitians.  Signs rapidly appear.  Some say, "Stop deportation now!" Where did the signs come from?  Who are the people carrying them, and where do they come from?  Is someone paying them?  The media never ask these questions.  Illegal immigrants are not only attracted by low-paying jobs, but by lots of free stuff, like access to health care and public schools, all paid for by American taxpayers.  If a pregnant noncitizen gives birth on U.S. soil, her child instantly becomes a U.S. citizen with all the benefits of full citizenship.  One of the few political leaders responding to this crisis is Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, a Republican.  Abbott has ordered state police to close off parts of the border because the migrants are violating Texas law.  For this, he is being pilloried and even sued by the Biden administration, though the White House announced just recently that it would swiftly begin to deport Haitian migrants flooding into Del Rio, Texas.  But where's Vice President Kamala Harris, who was assigned to fix our border crisis?

Panama warns of looming Haitian migrant wave, tens of thousands on the way.  Nearly 30,000 Haitian migrants have already made their way over the U.S.-Mexico border in recent weeks, but Panama's foreign minister says far more are on their way — and she has been sounding the alarm for months.  In a new interview with Axios, Foreign Minister Erika Mouynes said that since the beginning of 2021 more than 85,000 Haitians have crossed through Panama and that she believes "they all are heading toward the U.S."

Border Crisis Update For September 29, 2021.  Both the Biden Administration and his [director] of "Homeland Security" seem to view illegal aliens as a precious resource that they must avoid deporting at all costs.  [Numerous tweets]

Border Patrol Breaks All-Time Migrant Apprehension Record in 2021.  With less than 48 hours left in Fiscal Year 2021, the Border Patrol has already surpassed the total number of migrant apprehensions made in any year along the southwest border since the agency's inception in 1924.  A source within Customs and Border Protection notes the unofficial apprehension record shows more than 1,646,000 for the year as of Wednesday [9/29/2021].  The total reflects arrests made within the nine southwest Border Patrol Sectors from California to Texas.  According to CBP, the previous record stood since 2000 when 1,643,679 were arrested.

Ted Cruz Points Out What's Been Missing From the Senate Judiciary Committee.  During a working session on Capitol Hill Wednesday, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) berated Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Dick Durbin for refusing to hold a single hearing about the catastrophe continuing to unfold at the U.S. southern border with Mexico.  [Tweet]  During a speech on the Senate floor late last week, Cruz detailed the impact unfettered illegal immigration is having on Texas communities.  "When I was in Del Rio, the 700 people under the bridge had become 10,503.  That's what the total was the day I was there.  10,503 packed in deplorable conditions.  They'd already crossed into the United States.  They were packed under that bridge because the Border Patrol lacks the capacity to process anything close to that number.  Within a couple more days, the 10,503 had become 15,000 people.  That's unprecedented.  To put that in perspective, the city of Del Rio has a population of 35,000 people — nearly half the population of Del Rio was under that bridge," Cruz said.

Biden administration trying again to end 'Remain in Mexico' policy.  The Biden administration has not given up on doing away with the so-called "Remain in Mexico" policy known officially as the Migrant Protection Protocols, despite being ordered by a court to reinstate the program implemented by former President Trump.  The policy requires asylum seekers at the southern border to remain in Mexico while they await hearings to determine their eligibility and status, rather than allowing a release of migrants into the U.S.  The Biden administration first attempted to end the program in June but was sued by Texas and Missouri.  Those states' attorneys general argued that ending the policy was harmful to the country and that the way it was terminated was illegal.

Decoding the Democrat Fantasy of Open Borders.  [Scroll down]  The left knows that they have been emphatically rejected in the arena of ideas.  There is no place on the earth that can boast of sustained prosperity under a left-wing regime.  Since they cannot win red states, they have devised a plan to dilute the impact of Republican voters by flooding the country with impoverished and unskilled migrants.  These individuals may end up partially or totally dependent upon taxpayers' funds all their life.  The left gives them welfare money enough to keep their heads above the water.  The grateful migrants become lifelong Democrat voters.  The older residents are branded as 'deplorables' and they need not be won over; they are just replaced with new Democrat voters.  This is the only way the Democrats can permanently remain in power. [...] This would explain why migrants are clandestinely bussed to red states.  The illegal immigrant may well agree to work for lower than minimum wage, which is a blessing for big businesses, who are Democrat donors.

DeSantis Moves To Stop Biden From Flooding Florida With Illegal Aliens.  Florida Governor Ron DeSantis on Tuesday announced new actions that his administration is taking to stop Democrat President Joe Biden from flooding the state with illegal aliens from the crisis that Biden created on the U.S.-Mexico border. [...] DeSantis has previously pressed the Biden administration to provide transparency concerning where they are shipping the illegal aliens in the state, and the administration refused to respond.

Florida Sues Biden Administration Over Release of Illegal Immigrants.  The Biden administration's repeated release of illegal immigrants has drawn a legal challenge from the state of Florida.  Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody, a Republican, sued the federal government over its "catch-and-release" policy, which has led to the freeing of over 225,000 illegal immigrants this year.  The lawsuit primarily concerns the treatment of immigrants seeking asylum, which is granted in cases where authorities rule they have a legitimate fear of persecution based on their race, religion, or several other reasons.  Federal law requires the government to detain the asylum seekers until authorities rule on their case.  But under President Joe Biden, it has released at least 225,000 illegal immigrants, including asylum seekers, so far, according to Customs and Border Protection data.  "Releasing this many arriving aliens into the interior necessarily means that the government is violating congressional commands in the immigration laws," the 23-page suit, filed in federal court in Pensacola, states.

Florida sues Biden administration over catch-and-release policy, alleging violation of federal law.  The state of Florida is suing the Biden administration over its "illegal" catch-and-release policies at the Southern Border, saying they cause harm to the state's "quasi-sovereign interests," while claiming officials are either in violation of federal immigration law, or simply abusing their authority.  Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody filed the suit against the administration Tuesday, as part of a joint effort with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to "uphold the rule of law despite the Biden administration's decision to violate the law."  The suit was filed in the Pensacola Division of the Northern District of Florida.  Moody is not seeking a preliminary injunction.  The defendants in the suit are the Department of Homeland Security, its component agencies, like Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE), as well as Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, top officials from ICE, Customs and Border Protection (CBP), and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).  The attorney general is also suing the United States itself.

Biden DHS Secretary Opposes Wall Because It's A "Proud Tradition" For People To Cross Border Illegally For Asylum.  During a Sunday morning [9/26/2021] interview with far-left Fox News anchor Chris Wallace, Biden DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said the Biden administration opposes the border wall because it's a "proud tradition" for the United States to let people in illegally through the southern border.  "Why did you allow them in the country in the first place?  Why didn't you build — forgive me — a wall?  Or a fence, from stopping this flood of people from coming across the dam.  It looks like a highway when they cross the Rio Grande," Wallace asked.  The response from Mayorkas was simply mindblowing.  "It is the policy of this administration that we do not agree with the building of the wall.  The law provides that individuals can make a claim for humanitarian relief, that is actually one of our proudest traditions," he said.

Democrats' Budget 'Plan B' Would Give Amnesty to at Least 7M Illegal Aliens.  A plan being worked on by Senate Democrats would slip amnesty for roughly seven million illegal aliens into a filibuster-proof budget reconciliation package, a new analysis finds.  This month, Senate Parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough rejected a plan by Democrats to include an amnesty for millions of illegal aliens into a reconciliation package, which would only need majority support in the Senate.

Didn't anyone see the 14,000 Haitians?  Last week, we had dinner with Mexican friends who said two things about the border crisis.  First, they commented that Mexicans are sick and tired of foreigners walking through their country.  Second, our friends are not the only ones asking how the Haitians got to the US.  After all, it is a "long walk" to go from Guatemala to Del Rio, Texas. [...] How did this happen in a country where "federales" search bus stations for Central Americans going north?  To be fair, Mexicans enjoy a lot of freedom but illegal immigrants have always had a hard time evading the authorities.  Just talk to any Central American who's had to endure the interviews and intimidation of Mexican authorities.  Young women are especially scared to death of being seen at stores or bus depots.  One young woman from El Salvador told me that women avoid talking to give away their accents.  So how did 14,000 black Haitians walk through Mexico?  They don't speak Spanish and they sure look different.  There aren't a lot of black Mexicans.  Who helped them?  Well, someone did and my friends in Mexico fear that criminal elements are behind it all.  They charge to move people and probably pay off a few authorities on the walk north.

Does Biden Believe That Laws Should Only Be Observed Selectively?  Biden's lawlessness is particularly acute and painful on our Southern border.  Immediately after becoming president, old Joe halted Trump's border wall construction and, more or less openly, invited illegals to swarm in.  As part of this, he halted congressionally approved spending on the wall.  Some legal experts believe this broke the law. [...] Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, who sued the Biden administration, said, ["]President Biden's outright refusal to enforce the law is exacerbating an unprecedented border crisis.  By failing to take custody of criminal aliens and giving no explanation for this reckless policy change, the Biden administration is demonstrating a blatant disregard for Texans' and Americans' safety.["]

Thousands of mostly Haitian migrants traverse Panama on way to United States.  Up to 4,000 migrants, most of them Haitians, have passed through the treacherous jungles of the Darien Gap in Panama on the Colombian border as they make their way north to the United States, two Panamanian government sources said.  An impromptu camp arose in recent weeks on the U.S.-Mexican border that included Haitians, adding to President Joe Biden's migration policy headaches.  At its peak on Sept. 18 there were some 15,000 people there as Haitians flee economic, political and social chaos in their homeland.

The Symptoms of Our Insanity.  In the fiscal year 2021-22, how could an anticipated two million illegal aliens simply swarm the border, illegally cross it, continue to reside in the United States illegally, and do so in a time of a pandemic without either a COVID-19 test or vaccination?  Who has unilaterally decided that U.S. executive officials could forsake their oaths to enforce existing laws, and simply decide to nullify American immigration law?  Are we a neo-Confederacy in which the nullification of federal law is now normal, whether at the border or in some 550 sanctuary jurisdictions?  Most of the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens have headed northward in response to the wink-and-nod open borders advocacy of Joe Biden and his brag that he had stopped all construction of the supposedly impractical replacement and new sections of the border wall — whose current cessation point doubled as the start-off point of the current mass influx.

Life along the border collapses as Biden fiddles.  Take all of the imagery you have seen of the over 14,000 Haitian migrants camped under an international bridge in the small Texas border town of Del Rio and add the complications of disease, public excrement, unbearable heat, and heightened frustrations.  It has led to violence that has injured Border Patrol officers.  Now close your eyes and imagine it is 100 times worse.  Because that's what it is, said Texas Rep. Tony Gonzales, the freshman Republican who represents 42% of the border.  The overwhelmed city of Del Rio had been in a rapidly deteriorating crisis situation when illegal immigrants first began surging into the community in January, but Gonzales now says the situation here is a "Category 5" and that the environment is unlike anything he has ever seen before.  "I arrived here today to pure chaos," he said.  "I've never seen it in this environment.  There literally is no border left."

Anatomy of a Hoax.  The Haitian migrant crisis is another catastrophe in a series of disasters that plagues the beleaguered Harris-Biden administration.  There were harrowing images and videos of Haitian migrants wading across the top of a dam over the Rio Grande River to get to Texas.  There was also footage of over fifteen thousand migrants crowding in what appeared to be a makeshift migrant camp under the International Bridge in Del Rio, Texas.  Whenever a crisis arises, the first instinct of the Democrats is not to resolve the problem.  They instead focus on punishing the messenger, blocking the story, and spinning the narrative to distract.  They know they can rely on their myriad lackeys in the mainstream media to spin any story to their advantage.  A day after the videos were made public, The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) brought in a two-week flight restriction over Del Rio, Texas.  This enabled them to block the Fox News drone from taking videos of immigrants under the bridge after mass border crossing by thousands of Haitians.  Embarrassed by the resulting controversy, the outrageous order later was rescinded.  But that was just not enough, they desperately needed another angle to distract from this obvious catastrophe.

Governor Abbott to Border Patrol officers:  If you are fired, I'll hire you.  [Governor] Abbott was a guest on Fox News Sunday [9/26/2021] and host Chris Wallace asked his thoughts on Biden's witchhunt against the horse patrol.  Even the photographer who took the pictures that originally went viral on social media and sparked the Democrats' disinformation campaign against Border Patrol in Del Rio clarified that he saw no one whipping or "strapping" migrants as they came to the shore of the Rio Grande River.  "Strapping" is the word used by Biden on Friday to justify an investigation.  Abbott's face turned visibly angry and he said that if any officers are fired, he will hire the horse patrol officers.  He rightly accused both Mayorkas and Biden of failing to "secure the sovereignty of the United States."

Biden White House's lies [are] a matter of life and death.  Lie 1:  The southern border is closed.  No, it's wide open, by design, and yet Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Vice President Kamala Harris keep telling us, "The border is closed."  We can see with our own eyes, mainly thanks to Fox News, that illegal immigrants from all over the world are flooding in from Mexico, under the watchful gaze of Border Patrol agents who have been ordered to stand down. [...] Lie 2:  Border Patrol agents on horseback "whipped" Haitian migrants.  After trying to stop Fox News' drone from filming the makeshift refugee camp under the Del Rio bridge, the Biden administration realized it had an optics problem.  So Border Patrol was given permission to stop the flood of migrants who were crossing the Rio Grande.  They used horses as crowd control on the rocky riverbank.  If they had not done so, it is unlikely Mayorkas would have been able to clear the migrant camp by Friday, as Biden had instructed.  Twitter activists seized on an image of the operation to falsely accuse the agents of strapping the migrants with horse whips.  What they said were whips were reins.  The administration's rush to judgment was shameful.  The agents were taken off active duty pending an investigation and horse patrols were suspended, thus removing one of the last remaining tools to secure the border.

Abandoned IDs found at US border show Haitian migrants held Chilean refugee status: report.  Amid the Biden administration's ongoing border crisis, it appears a number of Haitian migrants held Chilean refugee status, according to abandoned ID cards found at the United States-Mexico border near where more than 15,000 migrants camped under the Del Rio bridge in Texas.  As reported previously by The Post Millennial, the mass congregation of Haitian migrants previously lived and worked in Latin American countries as refugees, mainly Chile and Brazil.  The migrants generally had access to housing and gainful employment, but decided to move to the United States for opportunity there.  According to immigration experts, the Haitian migrants believed President Joe Biden "opened the border so we decided we could upgrade our lifestyle."

Border Chaos Reflects Migrants' Home Countries.  The United States and Mexico share the largest border between a first and third world country on earth, and Mexico has long been a source of significant illegal immigration.  Poverty, high crime, and social problems on the Mexican side lead naturally to movement north, absent strong efforts to prevent it.  Think of it as demographic osmosis.  Someone not paying attention might assume, therefore, that the large camps of immigrants appearing suddenly on the U.S.-Mexican border are made up of Mexicans.  But the presence of so many different nationalities — Salvadorans, Guatemalans, Middle Easterners, Africans, and now Haitians — is a product of the interplay of refugee law and Mexico's function as a transit point.  Once the migrants make it into the United States, they can claim asylum.  Mexico now permits them to transit, though they used to take a harder line, worried about the economic competition with their own people already living in the United States, as well as the impact of such migrants on Mexico itself.

Top Republican:  Biden releasing Haitian migrants with 'virtually no chance' they'll report to ICE.  New York Republican Rep. John Katko, ranking member of the House Homeland Security Committee, told Just the News that he's "looking into" whether the Biden Administration's decision to release thousands of migrants without court dates is a violation of law.  The released migrants were reportedly asked to report to Immigration and Customs Enforcement but only a small percentage followed through.  The administration recently allowed the release of an unknown number of Haitian migrants without court dates.  "What the current immigration policy is, is they don't get a court date before they get released," Katko said Friday on Capitol Hill.  "That's what this administration has decided to do.  What they've basically said is, they get a piece of paper saying in six months or whatever, call this number, and we'll tell you when your court date is.  And so obviously, 90 to 99% of them will not do that, and that's a huge problem."  Katko was asked if the Biden administration's actions are in violation of the law or an administrative issue.  "I think it's more of an administrative prerogative, technically, but it's a good question, whether it's a violation of law, we're looking into it, but it's not clear," he replied.

DHS warning: influx of Haitians coming by sea and 20,000 by land.  The Department of Homeland Security is warning of a possible influx of Haitian migrants headed to the United States by boat.  This is according to an intelligence alert obtained by Yahoo News.  The alert, which was unclassified and marked "for official use only," was issued on Thursday by U.S. Customs and Border Protection's Office of Intelligence.  It states that Border Patrol apprehensions of Haitian migrants in Miami and Puerto Rico have been on the rise since May, "with September likely to be the highest month in fiscal year (FY) 2021."

Mayorkas Finally admits 12,000 illegal Haitians out of 17,000 have been released into the US, and number could go 'even higher'.  Alejandro Mayorkas finally admitted on Sunday that 12,000 Haitian migrants have been released into the U.S., claiming that number could go up as 5,000 other cases are still being processed and confusingly says not stopping illegal immigration is a 'proud tradition.'  'Approximately, I think it's about 10,000 or so — 12,000 thousand,' Mayorkas told Fox News Sunday when asked how many have already been released into the country.  'It could be even higher,' he added.  'The number that are returned could be even higher.  What we do is we follow the law as Congress has passed it.'

DHS Secretary:  As Many as 12,000 Illegal Haitian Immigrants [have been] Released Into the US in Recent Days.  Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas said on Sept. 26 that a significant number of Haitian illegal immigrants who had amassed along the U.S.-Mexico border last week are being released into the United States.  About 12,400 of 17,000 Haitians are having their cases heard by immigration courts, Mayorkas said, adding that some 5,000 are being processed by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).  Only about 3,000 are in detention, he said.  "Approximately, I think it's about 10,000 or so, 12,000," Mayorkas told "Fox News Sunday" when he was asked about the number of Haitian illegal aliens who have been released into the interior of the United States.  The number could rise as 5,000 more cases are processed, he said.

Texas governor to Border Patrol agents under investigation: 'I will hire you'.  Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on Sunday [9/26/2021] defended U.S. Border Patrol agents seen charging at migrants on horseback, saying he would hire them if they fear being fired.  "You have a job in the state of Texas," he told host Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday."  "I will hire you to help Texas secure our border."  Images surfaced last week showing Border Patrol agents moving on horseback with reins against Haitian migrants seeking to enter the United States in Del Rio, Texas, though the photographer later said some of the pictures could be "misconstrued" as showing the agents behaving badly when they weren't.

Tulsi Gabbard Says Biden 'Needs To Apologize' For Throwing Border Agents Under The Bus.  Former Democratic Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard said Saturday that President Joe Biden "needs to apologize to the American people" for falsely accusing border patrol agents of "strapping" illegal immigrants from Haiti.  "I consider Joe Biden a friend.  But he's absolutely wrong and he needs to apologize to the American people for saying what he said," Gabbard told Fox News' "Watters' World."  "And here's why.  He's somebody who's been very outspoken about being against autocrats and dictators.  But what he essentially did was act as judge, jury and executioner for these customs and border patrol agents on horseback," the former Democratic presidential candidate continued.

Why Your Otherwise Smart Friends Think Stupid Things.  Joe Biden has never before demonstrated the slightest concern about Haitians until thousands crossed the southern border and were camped out under a bridge in Del Rio, Texas.  As late as 1994 he said, "If Haiti just quietly sinks into the Caribbean or rose up 300 feet, it shouldn't matter a whole lot in terms of our interest."  But the picture of the migrant camp certainly riled the open borders fanciers with horrible pictures of destitute illegal migrants camping by the thousands under the bridge.  The FAA even momentarily banned Fox News from overhead drone coverage of the scene.  One photographer on the ground, Paul Ratje, captured pictures of horse-riding border patrol members preventing the people from scattering off into the country where they would avoid even minimal processing.  City folks who populate newsrooms and left-wing social media may never have seen the split reins the border patrols riders use to control the horses, but seeing them, they rushed to publication Ratje's shots, claiming the riders were whipping the migrants.  Not so, said the photographer, but the fake account spread far and was bought hook, line, and sinker by the administration.

Border Patrol Council head says Biden would be arrested for 'aiding and abetting' illegal immigrants if he wasn't president.  The President of the National Border Patrol Council, Brandon Judd, told Fox News on Thursday [9/23/2021] that he would arrest Joe Biden for "aiding and abetting" if he wasn't president.  Judd told Fox News host Sean Hannity that he's been patrolling the borders since Bill Clinton was president, and of all the border policies he's worked under, President Donald Trump's "were by far the best," but President Joe Biden "completely and totally dismantled all of those policies."  "And when you look at our Border Patrol agents, when they are sent down there to that job, and by the way, Mayorkas was down on the border, and he saw the horses, he knew the horses were out there, and now he's making, doing a 180," Judd added.  [Video clip]  "But when our agents are out there trying to patrol the border, do their job to the best of their ability, then they're vilified by the president," he continued.

Officials say as many as 30,000 migrants flooded Del Rio, all have been cleared from camp.  Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said Friday that all migrants camped out under the Del Rio International Bridge in southern Texas have been cleared.  "As of this morning, there are no longer any migrants in the camp underneath the Del Rio International Bridge," the secretary told reporters.  Mayorkas said that up to 30,000 people were encountered in Del Rio since Sept. 9 and that as many as 15,000 were concentrated there at one time.

Joe Biden Declares War on [the] Border Patrol.  Despite the fact that the photos of migrants allegedly being whipped by Border Patrol agents have been debunked by the man who took them, some news outlets are clinging to the story that agents were riding migrants down like Cossacks.  Of note, the photographer's statement is oddly missing from the CNN website.  Although they did include the president's remarks about the story-that-wasn't-there.  Huh.  Who'd a thunk it?  After all, why tell the truth when there are fires and egos that need to be stoked by a generous helping of gasoline?  By now, you likely know that on Friday, Joe Biden commented:  "To see people treated like they did, horses barely running over, people being strapped — it's outrageous... I promise you, those people will pay.  There will be an investigation underway now and there will be consequences.  There will be consequences."  And yes, Biden is merely regurgitating what he was fed.  And knowing that makes his statement all the more odious.  This is full-blown left-wing emotional manipulation on display.  This is the outrage machine under full steam.  This is lying.  They know it and they don't care.

Thousands of Haiti migrants flee Del Rio, try to reach border again: report.  Thousands of Haitian migrants who fled the makeshift encampment at Del Rio, Texas, rather than be deported to their country of origin this week have reportedly opted to lie low in Mexico as they gear up for another attempt to cross into the US.  The Daily Mail reported Friday [9/24/2021] that some migrants who left the camp under the Del Rio International bridge had been seen buying bus tickets in the bordering city of Ciudad Acuña, Mexico, that would take them to major transport hubs like Mexico City and Monterrey.  Some bought tickets for Nogales, a Mexico border city which adjoins a city of the same name in Arizona.  "They just fled back over that river [Rio Grande] and ran.  Hundreds and hundreds of them that I saw.  I personally saw," Todd Bensman, the senior national security fellow at the Center for Immigration Studies told the outlet.  "They told me they were fleeing because of the deportation flights."

Look past the hand-waving, and you'll see a wide open Mexican border.  Soon after Bill Melugin of Fox News began beaming drone footage of the many thousands of Haitians gathered under the bridge in Del Rio, Texas, Biden's open borders zealot in charge of DHS, Alejandro Mayorkas, ordered two nearby border checkpoints abandoned.  The reason given was to redirect those personnel to help process the Haitians.  The media reported that those checkpoints had been "closed," leading the viewer to believe that traffic had been rerouted.  But that was not the case.  The fifty thousand vehicles those checkpoints inspect during an average week continued to move through, only now no one was checking them for drugs or trafficked humans.  This happened while Mayorkas was giving a news conference under the Del Rio bridge, insisting that the U.S. border was definitely "not open."  In fact, the border in the Del Rio sector was wide open.

Border Patrol stunned as Biden goes to war with his own agents over false 'whipping' allegations.  President Biden on Friday [9/24/2021] left Border Patrol agents stunned after repeating debunked claims that Del Rio agents whipped or "strapped" Haitian migrants, while promising to make those agents "pay."  Biden weighed in on the controversy over images that emerged Sunday of agents on horseback blocking Haitian migrants from entering the U.S.  Claims that agents, who were using long reins to control their horses, were using "whips" were quickly debunked by officials and other agents — but activists and elected Democrats have continued to fuel it.  The photographer who took the images said Friday he did not see any agents whipping migrants.

Haitian migrants hijack buses, further embarrassing Biden administration.  Multiple reports say that Haitian migrants, ostensibly in federal custody, have "hijacked" several buses while being transported and forced out their drivers.  The incidents, they say, have occurred while migrants have been taken from the camp beneath the Del Rio — Ciudad Acuna International Bridge to processing centers across the region, as well as from the processing centers to local airports for deportation flights, and could cause the U.S. government's immigration enforcement operations to be halted.  A senior federal law enforcement official recently told the Washington Examiner:  "They've been basically overpowering the drivers and they've actually hijacked a couple of the buses and driven them down the road a little ways and escaped.  This happened multiple times."

Leftists force mass Third World immigration by deceiving us into feeling guilty.  Milton Friedman, the economist, was such a libertarian that he supported open borders.  However, there was a caveat to this support:  "It's just obvious you can't have free immigration and a welfare state."  It's obvious, of course, because having both spells imminent national bankruptcy.  But that's exactly what leftists are selling to America and they're using false historic narratives to create in native-born Americans a sense of guilt so profound that they're willingly opening the borders to those who will irrevocably drain the nation's wealth.

Why 15,000 Migrants Ended Up in One Spot on the U.S.-Mexico Border.  When some 15,000 people crossed the Rio Grande from Mexico in the past week or so, it brought a spotlight on this Texas border town of 35,000, which has not been a historically popular crossing point (though it has seen more than 200,000 migrant encounters in the last year).  It also raised the question of why and how so many migrants, particularly Haitians, arrived at the same time and the same place along the border.

Civilization requires deterrence.  [Scroll down]  With a border wall, an end to catch and release, and tough jawboning of the Mexican and Central American governments, a new American deterrent stance in 2019-20 discouraged once unstoppable waves of illegal immigrants.  Northern bound migrants knew that even if they reached and crossed the border, there was a good chance all such effort would be for naught, given quick apprehension and deportation.  So, in their rational calculations, illegal aliens waited at home for less deterrent times.  And they found them when Joe Biden stopped construction on the wall, renewed catch and release, and eased pressures on Mexico to interrupt caravans headed northward.

[The] White House [has] ordered border authorities to clear out [the Del Rio] bridge by Friday evening ahead of BLM protest:  Sources.  The Biden administration has set a deadline of Friday night to clear out the Haitian migrant camp that has caused major headaches for the White House, sources told the Washington Examiner.  Two senior officials within the Department of Homeland Security said the camp, underneath the Del Rio-Acuna International Bridge, is creating bad "optics" and drawing renewed scrutiny to the administration's inability to curb illegal immigration.  At one point, more than 15,000 people were in the camp, though the number had dwindled to less than a third of that by Thursday [9/23/2021].

The Bidenization of America.  The southern border, which the homeland security secretary assures us is "closed" but privately says is "unsustainable" and where the president said the problems were "seasonal" and would abate during the summer, is now almost completely open to unprecedented masses of illegal migrants from all over the world, with no regard to their suitability to reside in the United States and no ability even to test them for COVID.  It is an open artery only slightly plausibly explained by the Democrats' desire to admit so many foreigners while they shed the requirement of citizenship to vote, that they become electorally immovable, and this horrifying sequence of institutionalized policy failures becomes permanent.

National Sabotage by Immigration.  Beneath the surface of Biden's genial Uncle Joe schtick is an executive branch controlled by some of the most dogmatic left-wing apparatchiks ever seen in American politics.  Among their witch's brew of radical ideas, they have seized upon immigration as one of the quickest and most effective ways to transform the country to their vision.  It is becoming increasingly difficult to give this administration the benefit of the doubt on anything.  That became nearly impossible after independent journalist John Solomon broke the news of a letter from recently departed Border Patrol chief Rodney Scott to Democratic and Republican leaders of the Senate and its homeland security and governmental affairs committee.  In his letter, Scott described a culture in the current administration where inexperienced political appointees routinely ignore or reject common-sense recommendations from career immigration enforcement professionals.

European Travelers Were Banned For 18 Months While A Permanent Illegal Alien Population Was Encouraged To Come And Stay?  [Scroll down]  To recap:  Joe Biden has encouraged and allowed millions of illegal aliens to seek permanent residency in the United States.  They have not been vetted for infectious disease, an ability to contribute to our country through gainful employment or shared values, nor for previous connections to ideologies that hate this country.  In the midst of a supposedly terrifying pandemic and vaccine mandates for citizens, they have also not been subject to the same rigorous expectations.  It is the height of hypocrisy.  At the same time, though, despite a vaccine rollout going as far back as the Trump presidency, European travelers (not even permanent, asylum- and resident-seeking aliens; just travelers!) have been all denied entry.  Compounding this confusion, I had friends and family vacation in Europe this summer.  They spent weeks hopping from country to country before flying home.  At that point, how is there exposure any different than a holder of an EU passport?

White House Does Not Know if Joe Biden Has Ever Visited Southern Border.  The White House admitted Wednesday [9/22/2021] they did not know if President Joe Biden had ever visited the Southern border to demonstrate his commitment to border security.  "I will have to look back in my history books and check the times he's been to the Southern border," White House press secretary Jen Psaki said in response to a question from Fox News reporter Peter Doocy during the daily White House briefing.  It remains unclear whether Biden has ever been to the Southern border, as he spent most of his political career as a U.S. senator representing Delaware.

The Editor says...
It is painfully obvious that Joe Biden cannot "demonstrate his commitment to border security," because border security is the last thing he wants.

Psaki Announces Del Rio Border Patrol Will No Longer Use Horses in Response to False 'Whip' Narrative.  White House press secretary Jen Psaki announced Thursday that Border Patrol agents will no longer be permitted to use horses to guard the border in Del Rio, Texas, after "horrific" photos emerged of agents swinging long reins while interacting with Haitian migrants.  The announcement comes after the media caused a frenzy by falsely portraying the videos and photos as showing agents hitting the migrants with whips.  It was later revealed that the agents were in fact wielding the long reins that make it easier to maintain control of their horses, according to Border Control chief Raul Ortiz.

Have 5,000 Haitians been released into US? Official figures show that 9,700 are being processed — but that does not include immigrants simply let go from Texas border camp.  The White House is still refusing to reveal how many Haitian migrants have come to the US despite promising to do so yesterday.  Jen Psaki on Wednesday [9/22/2012] promised to release the figures after the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) failed to.  However partial information released Thursday accounts for only 10,000 of the 15,000 that the DHS said earlier in the week had come to the southern border.

Thousands of Haitian migrants who flocked to Del Rio were already working and living comfortably as refugees in Chile.  The thousands of Haitians who have turned up in Del Rio, Texas didn't migrate from Haiti at all but from Chile, where they had been granted asylum and were working and living comfortably as refugees.  The dozens of Chilean identity cards that litter the ground in Ciudad Acuna, just across the Rio Grande from Del Rio, all bear distinctly non-Hispanic names.  There is Prosper Pierre for instance, or Linode Lafleur or Eddyson Jean-Charles.  None of the cards carries a name such as Gonzalez or Muñoz or Rojas.

Americans know who's to blame for the border crisis.  A majority of Americans blame President Biden for the border crisis, a new poll shows, as the administration is caught lying about the makeshift refugee camp under a bridge in Del Rio, Texas.  About two-thirds of the 15,000 Haitians living in unsanitary conditions under the bridge have been moved out since Saturday, as local authorities try to regain control.  Just over 5,000 migrants remained yesterday afternoon [9/21/2021].  But the tough talk from the administration that they would be deported back to Haiti under a special Trump-era pandemic health order has turned out to be hot air.  Most of the migrants have been secretly released into the community, according to whistleblowers and reporters on the ground, and the administration is determined to hide the truth.

Biden's Border Botch Is No Accident.  The massive influx of illegal immigrants on our nation's southern border almost defies description.  The Biden administration has actively sought this disaster in a bid to undermine the integrity of both our border and our nation's rule of law.  President Joe Biden is responsible for this human crisis, and should answer for it.  We're already seeing 200,000 or so people each month reach our borders.  But things have changed dramatically.  After the July 22 assassination of Haiti's president, some 15,000 Haitians showed up, many in Del Rio, Texas, swelling the ranks of the thousands of Central Americans and Mexican citizens already at the border waiting to come across.  Another 20,000 or so Haitians might soon be on their way from South America, according to NBC News.  Meanwhile, thousands more have already been released into the U.S., with little screening, while just a relative handful have been sent back to their country, according to news reports.

White House Will Not Say How Many Illegal Haitian Migrants Have Been Deported and How Many Released into U.S..  No one from the Biden administration has been willing to give any explanation about the status of the more than 16,000 Haitian migrants who illegally crossed into the U.S. at the Del Rio, Texas, border sector.  For two days, Dept of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has refused to say how many have been deported and/or how many have been released.  Today the White House was again asked about the simple issue of answering those questions.  The White House continues to obfuscate and dodge the question.  Given the nature of the ideology within the Biden administration; specifically, how the Obama team are the real open border players making the decisions; it is almost a guarantee the majority of the 16,000+ Haitian illegal aliens have been transferred and dispersed deeper into the U.S. mainland.

Cruz: South Texas Democrats Threatening to Leave Party over 'Open Borders'.  Wednesday [9/22/2021], during an appearance on FNC's "The Ingraham Angle," Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said Democrats in South Texas, which he explained was a long-time Democratic Party stronghold, were weighing leaving the party over the Biden administration's handling of the U.S.-Mexico border.  Cruz also said that as long as the Biden administration refused to apply the law, the problem would worsen. [...] "Most of the local elected officials in South Texas are Democrats, and that's long been a Democratic area of the state," Cruz continued.  "I got to tell you, every elected Democrat I met with was so horrified by what's happening at the border.  They said to me over and over again, they said, Listen, if the Democratic Party is the party of open borders, count me out.  I can't support this."

Why are there thousands of Haitian migrants at the Texas border?  Illegal border crossings by people all over the world are at a 20-year high, and Haitians are making up a growing part of that.  Haiti is a country with extreme political, economic and humanitarian problems, including most recently an assassinated president and a deadly earthquake.  Immigration experts have seen an increase in Haitian migrants over the past few months.  Many of the Haitians at the border now — most estimates say there are more than 10,000 — were actually migrants from a different earthquake, the horrific one in 2010.  They settled in South America, but for a host of reasons, many have tried to come to the United States.  It can be economic.  "A worker coming from Chile to the U.S. can expect a 3.5-times higher income coming here," said Alex Nowrasteh, an immigration policy analyst at the Cato Institute, a libertarian think tank.  A worsening pandemic in countries such as Brazil is also possibly playing a role in Haitians deciding to move north.

Biden administration releases Haitian migrant families at [a] Del Rio gas station.  Haitian migrant families who illegally crossed the southern border and lived in a makeshift camp beneath an international bridge are being released into the United States, contradicting the Biden administration's claims that they would be removed from the country.  Border Patrol released just over a dozen Haitian migrants at a gas station Wednesday evening [9/22/2021].  Large government-contracted buses drop off families twice a day at a gas station on a busy commercial road in the middle of town.

Biden flies Haitians to Florida in the middle of the night.  Two officials speaking with the AP said that the Haitian migrants camped in the Texas border town of Del Rio have been released into the U.S., undercutting expulsion vows.  By the way, it's not expulsion.  It's deportation because they came in illegally.  Some, not many, were sent back and they were violent.  DHS confirms to Fox News that Haitian migrants on a deportation flight back to Haiti caused "two separate disruptions" on the tarmac in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.  Three ICE officers were "injured and sustained non-life-threatening injuries."  Haitian crowd control police responded.  Biden's cabal is sending future Democrats to Florida.  They were released and found in the airport waiting for paid flights to Florida.  Biden's cabal is turning Florida deep blue with new Democrats and their anchor babies.  Over 300 Haitian women are pregnant or giving birth under the bridge in Del Rio.

Would they be better off in Haiti?
Images of migrant camp under Texas bridge show misery, squalor.  Images coming out of the makeshift migrant camp under a bridge in a Texas border town reveal the horrendous conditions thousands of people are living in — from seeking shelter from the brutal sun inside tents fashioned from pieces of cloth to using jugs of water to bathe, all the while surrounded by ever-growing mounds of garbage.  The humanitarian crisis underway on the border near Del Rio, Texas, includes adults, children and babies among the estimated 12,000 mostly Haitian migrants waiting to be processed by US border officials.  Meanwhile, Gov. Greg Abbott has ordered state vehicles to create a makeshift wall along the border to block people [from] crossing the Rio Grande river, according to a report.

Sen.  Hawley presses Mayorkas on border crisis.  Sen.  Josh Hawley grilled Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas on the Biden administration's efforts to stem the flow of illegal immigrants and whether it accepts responsibility for the humanitarian crisis created by the 15,000 Haitian migrants who massed near a border town in Texas.  Hawley (R-Mo.) pointed out that for the second straight month, in July and August, US Customs and Border Protection officials encountered more than 200,000 illegal immigrants, and he asked Mayorkas if the administration's plan to curb the surge was working.  "We are implementing the plan, Sen.  Hawley, and I can walk through the measures we've taken," Mayorkas responded during a hearing before the Senate Homeland Security Committee on Tuesday [9/21/2021].

Unbelievable pictures capture third world conditions in migrant camp under Del Rio bridge.  Horrific photos have emerged of the squalid and fetid migrant camp in Del Rio, Texas that is currently home to thousands of Haitian migrants who've flocked to the US in the latest border crisis to hit Joe Biden.  Desperate migrants, many of them families with young children, are being forced to sleep on the dirty ground or — if they're fortunate — cardboard boxes folded out flat.  Many of the 8,600 who remain there have resorted to fashioning makeshift tents using discarded clothing and tree branches in order to provide at least some shelter from the elements.

The "disappearing Haitians" mystery is solved.  You've been lied to.  Yesterday, when writing about the conflicting stories coming out of the Del Rio Haitian encampment, I concluded my analysis with an assumption.  "There's more to this story than we're being told."  A number of things being reported about how the Biden administration has been dealing with more than 14,000 Haitians, particularly the aggressive tactics being employed and the rapid deportation schedule, simply didn't add up.  Part of that just comes down to the math.  We were told that flights leaving for Haiti were only carrying a bit more than 100 deportees each.  Basic math suggests that it would take several weeks to send them all home at that pace.  And yet by yesterday, the number of Haitians was reportedly down to roughly 7,000.  Sure, some of them may have gone back over the border to Mexico (where they would face deportation anyway), but not half of the entire camp, right?  Well, the Associated Press seems to have cracked the case.  There are lots of Haitian migrants who are no longer camping out under the overpass near Del Rio.  But they weren't all put on planes and sent home as Alejandro Mayorkas promised on Monday.  Thousands of them were simply bussed to other areas along the border and released.

They Intend to Destroy America.  Since the installed regime's illogical, reflexive, and disastrous (some say illegal) repeal of every measure the Trump administration enacted to secure the border, the situation has continually degraded before our eyes (at least when the news media honestly reports what is happening).  The evidence of the humanitarian crisis is overwhelming: the number of illegal aliens found dead on South Texas brush country ranches has increased; fatalities on the border states' roads and highways have also risen from illicit human traffickers' attempts to evade border protection or law enforcement officers and the human toll exacted on those who cross the border, endure the elements, and face over-crowded processing facilities is impossible to calculate.  None of it is compassionate, and none of it is for the illegal aliens' welfare because unknown numbers have become indentured servants to the criminal enterprises that brought them to the United States.  They will likely never know freedom.  The Democrat party, its apparatus, and the installed administration all want to change America's demographics to have more "voters" who are dependent on government largesse and will vote Democrat, cementing its permanent political power.  It is a sickening subjugation of the rightful, legal citizens of the United States.  Resist.

Why are Haitians sent home but Mexicans and Central Americans get to stay?  Joe Biden's border policy would be comical if it weren't so destructive and tragic.  He in effect tells would-be immigrants, "Please don't come but, if you do, we'll let you in and let you stay."  Predictably, they do come, they do get let in, and they do stay.  Put another way, they come, they see and they conquer — all at the implicit invitation of the president.  How long before they get dinner at the White House?  Millions come.  Border towns are overrun.  Sanitation is bad.  Conditions are horrendous, filthy and unprecedented.  Twenty-six state governors begged Biden to take time out from (another) vacation to discuss the matter.  On behalf of the American people they represent, the governors asked that our immigration laws be enforced — that these illegal immigrants be prevented from committing their illegal act of entering and staying in the United States, not to mention whatever additional illegal acts they may commit once they're here.  Biden ignored the governors.

Texas finishes the wall! 'Steel barrier' of hundreds of state trooper SUVs line the border in 'unprecedented' move to stem the tide of Haitian migrants.  Texas Governor Greg Abbot has been forced to use 'unprecedented' methods to prevent more Haitian migrants from entering U.S. by creating a 'steel barrier' of hundreds of vehicles at the border.  Abbott visited the U.S.-Mexican border on Tuesday and praised DPS and Texas National Guard for creating the barrier by using hundreds of state-owned vehicles, almost all of which appear to be bulky SUVs.  The vehicles are lined up outside Del Rio in Texas, which has seen an influx of 14,600 migrants who crossed the Rio Grande from Mexico into the US. An estimated 8,600 remained in the town of 35,000 people as of Tuesday night, with 1,083 so far deported back to Haiti.

NBC: Another 20,000+ Haitians May Migrate to Texas.  More than 20,000 Haitians now living in South America may try to copy the Texas migration success of their fellow nationals, according to NBC News. [...] Multiple media reports say President Joe Biden's deputies are allowing thousands of the Haitian migrants at the Del Rio landing site to move into the United States — if they bring children with them.  Adults without children are reportedly being sent home to Haiti, even if they were living in South America before they reached the U.S. border.

Kamala Harris Wants Biden Administration Investigated for Failed Border Policies She is in Charge of.  It might sound like a weird headline, but the currently installed occupant of the White House specifically put Kamala Harris in charge of the southern border issues.  After several months of doing nothing, likely coordinating with the Obama crew that operates almost exclusively in her background, Kamala Harris pokes her head out of her bunker today and demands an investigation into issues at the border she personally is supposed to be in charge of.  Not surprisingly, the ideological media who travel with her don't even recognize the stupidity of what the appointed border czar Harris just said.

Sen. Ron Johnson Grills Secretary Mayorkas About 'Closed' Borders Claim.  Johnson:  Now, let me ask you a couple questions here.  This committee received — it was dated Sept. 11, but apparently this letter was not received until Thursday.  I didn't find out about it until yesterday.  I released it to the public immediately — by recently retired U.S. Border Patrol Chief Rodney Scott.  In this letter, former Chief Scott states he is sickened by the avoidable and rapid disintegration of what was arguably the most effective border security in our nation's history.  And of course, the chart shows it.  We'd pretty well secured the border.  We'd stopped the flow of unaccompanied children.  We'd stopped the flow of family units because of the Migrant Protection Protocols, the agreements that President [Donald] Trump put in place, the building of the wall.  We were serious about border security until your administration took office.  You stood before this committee and said that you would enforce the laws.  You have not done that.

The Editor says...
Is Secretary Mayorkas worried about keeping his job?  Probably not.  Who was the last cabinet-level bureaucrat who was fired because of poor performance?

Biden's negligent and cruel Del Rio disaster.  "How could Biden do this to us?" Haitian migrant Sonia Piard asked reporters after being forced off a chartered plane in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.  "We did not know we were going back to Haiti," Piard continued.  "Nobody told us we were going back to Haiti."  Piard is just one of hundreds, but soon to be thousands, of Haitian migrants who will be flown back to Haiti from the United States after living throughout Central and South America for almost a decade.  They are victims of a Biden administration catastrophically but characteristically out of touch with the chaos that their open-borders policies have created and dangerously desperate to restore order.

Bait And Switch, The Bridge To Nowhere, And The Soft Underbelly Of Future Promise.  "The Bridge to Nowhere" is a term where extraordinary resources are required to complete a connection to a destination that has no real value.  Recent limited coverage of the Del Rio, Texas Bridge is an example of the depths of both the Bait and Switch and the Bridge to Nowhere phenomena.  The implied invitation of the Biden administration to ignore our border and Illegal immigration laws has resulted in the development of a Shanty Town under the bridge in Del Rio, Texas.  The influx of humans and the sanitation and ingestion challenges are beyond our capabilities.  Most of these people are from Haiti, a country which has seen terrible destruction and devastation from Hurricanes and corrupt governments.  Their journey was about 2000 miles and they are a very poor nation.  Connecting the dots on who is funding this migration is an unanswered question.  The Del Rio Bridge is only one example of the out of control dilemma of our Southern Border.  When coupled with the lack of interest in controlling the impact of the massive influx of illegal immigrants and the relocation of tens of thousands of refugees throughout our states, the extreme mask, vaccine and booster mandates on the rest of our population seem overstated, to say the least.

'Wrong Way' Biden Flies The Nation Into Yet Another Crisis.  If President Joe Biden's navigating skills were any good, the southern border would be calm, inflation under control, every American safely out of Afghanistan, and COVID defeated.  Instead, we are left to wonder how it is that his sense of direction can be so fabulously wrong.  At his first-ever press conference from the White House in March, a reporter asked Biden about the surge at the border, which happened to coincide with his taking office.  "The truth of the matter is, nothing has changed," Biden, after suggesting that he'd studied the immigration charts, said.  "It happens every single solitary year.  There is a significant increase in the number of people coming to the border in the winter months of January, February, March.["]  "The reason they're coming," he went on, "is that it's the time they can travel with the least likelihood of dying on the way because of the heat in the desert."  At the end of April, Biden reassured the nation that he'd flown past the problem.  "Well, look, it's way down now.  We've now gotten control."  Right.

Understanding the Haitian refugee crisis on the border.  I offer a few comments on the Haitian migrant crises.  First, this is mostly self-inflicted by the Biden administration.  The Haitians heard Biden's call for economic "refugees" to come here.  They understood that Biden had reversed Trump-era policies.  So it should come as no surprise that they decided to try their luck.  Second, it is remarkable that the administration largely succeeded in downplaying the crises for so long.  Having a pliant media at its disposal was a factor.  It was only after the migrant shantytown was populated by about 15,000 people, who were running out of rations and living in unsanitary conditions, with many more coming across the Rio Grande every day, that the media had to start covering the story.  Third, the unfolding humanitarian crises led to, guess what, the Biden administration re-imposing Trump-era policies it and the media had decried during the campaign as racist and cruel.

'A sea of misery of biblical proportions'.  Within hours of his inauguration, President Biden stopped the building of the border wall and made it clear to all comers around the world that our border is open.  He invited all those migrants who have arrived from all over the world to enter what the left swears is an irreparably racist nation.  Hmmm.  The nearly twenty thousand Haitians now baking in the Texas sun were invited, too.  More are said to be on their way.  Babies are being born in what is a nightmare of "Bidenvilles," our very own refugee camps with all the filth and hunger that implies.  Most of those stranded there paid the cartels thousands of dollars to get here; the women and girls are routinely sexually abused on the journey and in the camps.  Over a million people, 200K per month, have entered the U.S. since Biden took office; who knows how many escaped notice, the "gotaways"?  As press secretary Jennifer Psaki confirmed, these migrants are not tested for COVID, nor are they required to be vaxxed.  The American citizens of Del Rio, the Texan town under siege, are quarantined if they test positive, but the illegal aliens are free to spread out into the interior of the country at taxpayer expense.

U.S. Releasing Haitian Migrants On 'Very Large Scale,' Report Says.  The situation in Del Rio has become the latest source of trouble for the Biden administration.  Haitians have been arriving in the thousands and camping out under or around a bridge in the small border town amid ongoing instability in their country, which was rocked by a massive earthquake in August and the shocking assassination of its president in July.  U.S. officials began ramping up expulsion of these migrants over the weekend, but quickly drew bipartisan scrutiny for images depicting aggressive tactics from border patrol agents corralling people on horseback.  [Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro] Mayorkas told Congress on Tuesday [9/21/2021] he planned to have the make-shift refugee camp in Del Rio cleared out within 10 days.  The Homeland Security chief explained this will be done through a mix of flights back to Haiti and moving migrants quickly "to other processing centers to ensure their security and the safety of the community."

Haitian migrants revolt in custody and seize control of privately contracted bus.  Haitian migrants who were being transported on a federally contracted private bus away from the border revolted during the ride and overtook control of the commercial vehicle before escaping, according to two law enforcement officials.  A large white bus bound for San Antonio, Texas, was overtaken Monday afternoon during the two-and-a-half-hour trip from the international bridge in Del Rio.  The migrants on board had been picked up from the makeshift migrant camp, where thousands are waiting to be taken into custody, two federal law enforcement agents told the Washington Examiner.  "They did break out of the bus, and they did escape," a senior federal law enforcement official confirmed to the Washington Examiner on Tuesday [9/21/2021].

GOP investigates FAA drone ban that shut down coverage of migrant camp.  Republican investigators demanded answers Tuesday from the Federal Aviation Administration over its decision last week to impose a ban on drone flights near the Texas migrant camp that sprang up on the banks of the Rio Grande.  Kentucky Rep. James Comer and fellow Republicans on the House Oversight Committee said the ban was "totally devoid" of a justification and, given the details, it's tough to avoid the conclusion that the FAA was trying to protect the Biden administration from embarrassing images.  "Using government resources to conduct such blatant censorship is exactly the kind of abuse of power that must be rooted out of our government — to say nothing to the basic lack of transparency," the House Republicans wrote in a letter that The Washington Times obtained first.

Mayorkas Won't Admit Border Crisis Exists While Standing in Overrun Del Rio.  Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas channeled more of the same willful ignorance that's typified the Biden administration's handling of the illegal immigration crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border during a press conference in Del Rio, Texas, on Monday [9/20/2021].  More than 13,000 illegal immigrants, including many from Haiti, crossing the Rio Grande to illegally enter the United States in recent days has led to the creation of an unofficial refugee camp as thousands of migrants huddle under Del Rio's International Bridge.

GOP State Governors Must ACT On Biden's Border Disaster.  The Del Rio disaster is merely a symptom of Biden's treasonous Open Borders policy.  Consider what this man is doing:
  •   While he imposes vaccine mandates on American citizens, he admits that illegal aliens, such as the Haitians, won't have to get the jab.
  •   The Border Patrol still catches and releases many of the "migrants" they detain, often without giving them a court date.
  •   The Regime rushes through "asylum" seekers and expedites green cards for Afghan "refugees" and guest workers.

Omar calls on Schumer, White House to 'ignore' Senate parliamentarian on path to citizenship.  The Senate parliamentarian determined that lawmakers cannot include a pathway to citizenship for illegal aliens in a budget reconciliation package, but Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., is pushing the Senate and the Biden administration to do it anyway.  Senate Parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough determined Sunday night [9/19/2021] that the provision fell outside the scope of what is allowed in a reconciliation bill[,] which cannot be filibustered, thus requiring the support of only a simple majority in the Senate.  "This ruling by the parliamentarian, is only a recommendation.  @SenSchumer and the @WhiteHouse can and should ignore it," Omar said.  "We can't miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to do the right thing."

If you're trying "to do the right thing," maybe you should play by the rules.

August Jobs Report Bad — And Worse Given American Worker Displacement (Which Regime Media Doesn't Report).  The news is worse than the Regime Media is reporting — immigrants took most of what few new jobs there were.  Consequently, American Worker Displacement is inching up again — at exactly the moment when the Biden Administration is scheming to push through an unprecedented Amnesty/ Immigration Surge via the budget reconciliation process and has also allowed the southern border to collapse.  The Biden Rush at the border had never stopped, it just mysteriously dropped out of Regime Media headlines.

The truth behind the Texas bridge migrants.  While the president took a long weekend relaxing at the beach in Delaware, another self-imposed crisis blew up in his face.  The migrant shantytown under a concrete overpass in Del Rio, Texas, had ballooned to 15,000 souls, mainly Haitians.  They were running out of food and water amid dangerously unsanitary conditions.  With a pipeline of hundreds more flooding across the Rio Grande from Mexico every day, a humanitarian disaster was unfolding and the media were starting to pay attention.  On Wednesday, 9,000 had arrived.  By Saturday, 6,000 more had crossed the river with no impediment.  The border was wide open.  There wasn't even a sign to stop them.  They set up camp in the shade under the International Bridge and soon had overwhelmed the port-a-potties provided by authorities.  They were sleeping on the ground under rough tents fashioned from sticks and trash bags, washing their clothes in the river.  The garbage piled up, and some of the migrants took to crossing back into Mexico to buy supplies.

Congressman Releases New Photos of Del Rio Crisis: 'Has Reached a Boiling Point'.  Rep. August Pfluger (R-Texas) is sounding alarm after after spending a day in the border town of Del Rio, Texas, where the illegal immigrants crisis, he said, "has reached a boiling point."  Pfluger posted on Twitter new photos showing the makeshift campsite full of individuals who illegally entered the United States and took shelter underneath the border bridge connecting Del Rio to Ciudad Acuña, Mexico.  He noted that there the crowd has grown to 15,000 on Saturday from 12,000 just the day before, with "hundreds more gathering every hour."

Del Rio Mayor Calls Out Biden, Harris for Failing to Visit Border in Crisis: 'Why Aren't You Here?'.  Democratic Del Rio Mayor Bruno Lozano has called out President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris for failing to make an appearance at his town as it battles with an overwhelming illegal immigrant crisis that has left Border Patrol agents struggling to process thousands of people.  More than 15,000 illegal immigrants, including Haitian, Cuban, and Venezuelan nationals, have illegally entered the United States in recent days and taken shelter underneath the border bridge connecting Del Rio, a Texas town of about 35,000 people, to Ciudad Acuña, Mexico.  While numerous official figures and congressmen, including Rep. August Pfluger (R-Texas) and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), have visited the town, shared images, and urged the Biden administration to take action, both Biden and Harris have been noticeably absent.

Senate parliamentarian rules amnesty out of reconciliation.  Politico reports that the Senate parliamentarian, Elizabeth MacDonough, has decided that providing a pathway to legal status and citizenship for illegal immigrants is not a budget-related matter, and therefore cannot be enacted through the "reconciliation" process.  This seems to mean that when the Democrats finally get around to passing budget reconciliation legislation, which they can do with a simple Senate majority, it will not include amnesty.  To accomplish amnesty, the Dems will need 60 votes, and they don't have them.

Senate Parliamentarian Blocks Democrats From Including Amnesty in Gargantuan Reconciliation Bill.  Senate Parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough on Sunday ruled Democrats cannot include amnesty in their gargantuan reconciliation bill because it not a budget-related matter.  The Democrats are pushing their $3.5 trillion "infrastructure" bill through budget reconciliation to go around Republicans because it will only need a simple majority to pass.  Democrat lawmakers tried to sneak immigration reform in the infrastructure bill because they know it will never pass in a vote that requires at least 60 votes to pass.  The Senate Parliamentarian rejected the Democrats' effort to give illegals a pathway to citizenship because it would lead to "other, life-changing federal, state and societal benefits."

Democrats cannot use [their] $3.5 trillion spending bill to give millions of immigrants a pathway to citizenship, Senate's parliamentarian rules.  Democrats cannot use their $3.5 trillion spending bill to give millions of immigrants a pathway to citizenship, the Senate's parliamentarian ruled late Sunday in a crushing blow to the party's agenda.  The decision by Elizabeth MacDonough, the Senate's nonpartisan interpreter of its rules, is a potentially damaging setback for President Joe Biden, congressional Democrats and their allies in the pro-immigration and progressive communities.  It badly damages Democrats' hopes of unilaterally enacting — over Republican opposition — changes letting several categories of immigrants gain permanent residence and possibly citizenship by issuing 8 million green cards.

Joe Biden is in way over his head.  The number, variety, magnitude, and speed of recent national and global crises have all clearly and without any doubt demonstrated that Joe Biden and his administration are simply in way over their heads and way beyond their abilities to understand and to respond to these events appropriately and intelligently. [...] Our southern border is, in reality, no longer a border.  Many thousands of migrants are camped under a bridge in U.S. territory.  And the administration seems surprised about it and scrambling to come up with any sort of plan to deal with it!  How can well over 10,000 people from Haiti and other countries make their way to a border bridge without our government collecting intelligence about the migration and being prepared for the event — and even taking measures to avoid and prevent the crisis?

So how did 15,000 Haitians suddenly find their way to Del Rio, Texas?  The migrant mass of some 15,000 mostly Haitians now illegally on U.S. territory in a squalid, never-before-seen shantytown under a bridge near Del Rio, Texas, demands some answers.  Here's how bad it is:  [Tweet]  It's natural to want to know how this formed?  Why is it so big?  Why did it end up at Del Rio, Texas, a town ill-equipped to accommodate them?  How did these people fly or sail from faraway Haiti?  Are more on the way?  And where the heck is Joe Biden and his brainless, disengaged border czar, Kamala Harris?  Joe was last seen at the beach in Delaware as this crisis fireballed and Harris was last seen flipping a coin to kick off a sports event.  The only actual action from this administration in this monster crisis has been a hamfisted attempt to shut down a Fox News drone in a bid to halt photos of the specter from being broadcast to the public.

Texas Governor Sends Highway Patrol, National Guard to Block Migrants at Border.  Texas Governor Greg Abbott deployed a contingent of Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) Highway Patrol troopers to stop the free flow of mostly Haitian migrants from crossing the Rio Grande.  The force of nearly 1,000 troopers and National Guard soldiers entered the makeshift migrant camp housing nearly 15,000 migrants under the Del Rio International Bridge.  On Saturday afternoon [9/18/2021], the troopers used vehicles and barbed wire to block access to a weir dam stretching the Rio Grande.  The migrants utilized the dam as the primary crossing point from Mexico into the makeshift camp.

Biden Administration Allows Border Invasion to Continue — Massive Crisis Overwhelms Del Rio Border Sector in Texas.  The efforts of the Biden administration to collapse the U.S. immigration system and open the borders to unrestricted illegal alien migration are being extremely successful.  Tens of thousands of illegal border crossers are now assembled in Del Rio, Texas, hometown to the Chief of the U.S. Border Patrol, Raul Ortiz.  The issue has become so overwhelming Ortiz told Houston media, "We've never seen a migration population explode so quickly on the immediate border like we saw over the last 72 hours."  Approximately 13,000 illegal aliens are now encamped underneath the overpass of the international bridge connecting Del Rio, Texas, to Ciudad Acuña in the Mexican state of Coahuila.

Joe Biden goes to the beach.  The border is being flooded by 15,000 illegal migrants massing under a bridge near Del Rio, Texas in the biggest migrant massing in U.S. history.  For the Border Patrol, it's a disaster.  There's no practical means of processing all of them into the country as is the Biden practice, meaning, no time to give them court-appearance papers, no time to vet them, no time to fingerprint them, no time to do the entire rigamarole for their fake asylum claims which will be rejected in any case.  The New York Times notes that most of the migrants are country-shoppers, previously resettled refugees from other South American countries, who have come to the U.S. in search of a better benefit package, which creates particular problems in deporting them back.  Worse still, there's a humanitarian crisis building, with no resources to feed them, house them, test them for COVID and other diseases, let alone time to vaccinate them.  Some are having babies.  The garbage they've created and strewn around has now reached heights of ten feet.  Many are building shacks to create an imported shantytown just like the places they left back home.

Scrappy Fox News teaches Biden administration's censors a lesson.  In the crudest crypto-censorship since dictators made newsprint unavailable, the Biden administration tried to shut down Fox News's coverage of the border crisis by cutting off its drone access for camera shots, depriving the network of the ability to broadcast the actual news in pictures as it was happening on the ground.  The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), which has never been misused in this way, claimed its two-week shutoff was all about public safety.  Thomas Lifson wrote about the sorry spectacle here.  Here's the real reason:  Fox News's original reporting, done by Bill Melugin (a must-follow on Twitter), documented a historic crisis building at the border as tens of thousands of migrants swarmed into the U.S. near Del Rio, Texas.  The photos were shocking and embarrassing to the Biden administration.  The Bidenites wanted those pictures shut down.  Coverage like Fox's was clearly making an impact on public opinion and had the potential to force the Bidenites to take action to halt the unprecedented invasion or else face voter consequences.

'We hope the US can help us': Haitian migrants in Texas wait on border, seeking asylum.  Riquet Terneus, 34, left Haiti with his wife and 7-year-old daughter three months ago, searching for a new home for his family.  "Haiti doesn't provide safety," he said.  "People are scared to go out on the street.  If you need any services or a hospital, there's nowhere to go."  In the months since Terneus left, Haitian President Jovenel Moïse was assassinated and a 7.2 magnitude earthquake killed more than 2,000 in the small nation.  Terneus says the worst part of the journey from South America was crossing the rainforest on foot in Panama's Darien Gap.  After a month of waiting in Tapachula, Chiapas on Mexico's southern border, Terneus took buses north to Del Rio, Texas.

US closes Del Rio border crossing as thousands of migrants illegally cross.  The federal agency that oversees U.S. borders made the unprecedented move to shut down a port of entry between Mexico and Texas in response to an unmanageable flow of migrants arriving in the thousands overnight.  U.S. Customs and Border Protection's Office of Trade announced Friday evening that the Del Rio Port of Entry in Texas would immediately stop operating, stopping traffic headed north into the United States or south into Mexico. [...] All vehicular traffic will have to travel an hour's drive to the next closest open port of entry between Eagle Pass, Texas, and Piedras Negras, Mexico.

Shocking Fox report: our border is wide-open, masses equal to Texas towns, they're coming in taxis.  Fox News applied for permission to fly the drone over the Del Rio bridge and it was granted by the same FAA that banned them.  The head of the FAA is answerable to Pothole Pete Buttigieg.  The Texas DPS gave Fox reporter Bill Melugin a ride in their helicopter, allowing him to get the same border shots the drone had access to.  The FAA received a lot of blowback and looked dangerously partisan.  Biden went on vacation during this so he doesn't have to answer a single question.  These numbers equal a significant number of Texas towns.  We are no longer America and will have no say over our nation in the future.  These are the people who will vote with totalitarian Democrats and determine our future.

Illegal Immigrant Numbers Explode In Del Rio, Now Nearly 10k, Most From Haiti, Biden Puts Ban On Drones Filming.  The number of migrants, predominantly from Haiti, waiting under the International Bridge in Del Rio, Texas has doubled to more than 10,000 in a single day, with sources telling Fox News that the situation is "out of control" and Border Patrol is overwhelmed.  Drone footage from Fox News shows the number of migrants under the bridge, who are just waiting to be apprehended by Border Patrol, has surged within a single day.  [Video clip]

Wait: Isn't Kamala In Charge Of This Mess?  And now this weekend traffic and weather update from Del Rio,TX:  [Video clip]  Expect long delays as traffic backs up at the International Bridge due to deconstruction on the American side.  There should be a deluge of Haitians with widely scattered Mexicans and a few gusts of terrorists throughout the weekend.  The extended outlook calls for more of the same with inevitable flooding and no relief in sight.  Despite this fact the Federal Government is not expected to declare the area a disaster zone.  When contacted, a spokesmouth for the Administration commented that the visitors were behaving better than the insurrectionists of 1/6, noting that it appeared they were all lining up in an orderly fashion to present themselves to border guards as required prior to entering the already deluged country.

Biden to begin 'deportation blitz' as soon as tomorrow and restart the repatriation flights to Haiti he cancelled a week ago.  The Biden administration has begun preparing deportation flights to Haiti in order to curb the number of undocumented migrants flooding into Del Rio, Texas, after nearly 14,000 immigrants began camping in the area as thousand continue to arrive.  Department of Homeland Security officials are planning as many as eight flights per day to Haiti, starting on Sunday, about a week since President Joe Biden cancelled repatriation flights to Haiti.  Haiti — which is recovering from a magnitude 7.2 earthquake that killed more than 2,000 people and damaged more than 100,000 homes — is prepared to only accept at least three flights a day, but Biden's administration will push for the eight, The Washington Post reported.

Mass of Migrants Crosses Rio Grande, Enters U.S. Illegally as Border Crisis Worsens.  Taking advantage of an apparent lapse in border security at the junction of Del Rio, Texas and Mexico, hundreds of migrants crossed the Rio Grande River and illegally entered the United States.  Video footage recorded by Fox News depicts masses of people wading into the water to reach the other side.  [Tweet]  Within the last day, an estimated 11,000 migrants have congregated under the Del Rio international bridge, waiting to be apprehended by U.S. border patrol for processing.  Many of the migrants have set up encampments and shelters, according to photos Fox News captured.  The federal government is reportedly bringing in school buses from the local Texas school district to help transport the crowds of migrants under the bridge, an anonymous U.S. Border Patrol source told Bill Melugin of Fox News.

Biden Admin Shuts Down All Border Patrol Checkpoints in Laredo Sector.  U.S. Border Patrol officials closed all highway immigration checkpoints operating in the Laredo Sector on Friday evening in response to the Haitian migrant crisis unfolding in Del Rio, Texas, according to a source within Customs and Border Protection.  The Laredo Sector operates six permanent checkpoints including one of the busiest checkpoints in the nation located on the I-35 Interstate corridor between Laredo and San Antonio.  Laredo Sector Border Patrol highway checkpoints inspect thousands of vehicles daily.  Staffing normally reserved for the inspections that result in the seizure of countless migrants and illicit narcotics will be diverted to assist with the care, transport, and processing of more than 10,000 mostly Haitian migrants detained under the Del Rio International Bridge.

Laredo Border Patrol checkpoints left unmanned.  Checkpoints in and out of Laredo have been shut down.  In a video interview, U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar told KGNS the decision comes from the Federal Government as it tries to send available Border Patrol agents to Del Rio due to the influx of migrants.  It's been an overwhelming situation for Del Rio officials to handle for the past 48 hours.  More than 12,000 migrants, mostly from Haiti, have been gathering under the international bridge between Del Rio and Ciudad Acuña, Mexico.  Officials are scrambling to bring reinforcements from across the country.
