    President Joe Biden on Thursday defended his administration’s decision to waive 26 federal laws in South Texas to allow for construction of roughly 20 miles of additional border wall, saying he had no choice but to use the Trump-era funding for the barrier to stop illegal migration from Mexico. Asked if he thought such walls work, he said flatly, “No.” The new construction was announced in June, but the funds were appropriated in 2019 before the Democratic president took office. Biden said he tried to get lawmakers to redirect the money but Congress refused, and the law requires the funding...

    Once again, Biden’s America. The invasion just keeps going with no end in sight. The United States of America under the criminal Biden Regime perpetuates this unconstitutional crisis. On Monday, Customs And Border Protection cut a barbed wire barrier and allowed illegal aliens to flood into Eagle Pass, Texas. You can thank Joe for that. “Eagle Pass, Texas where just moments ago, Customs and Border Protection cut a hole through the constantina wire that has been stretched by Texas DPS along the border there to allow migrants to come through.

    Barriers constructed along the U.S.-Mexico border during the Trump administration caused "significant damage and destruction" to the environment and cultural sites, the Government Accountability Office said... The watchdog's 72-page document says former President Donald Trump's efforts to deliver on a campaign promise — to construct more than 450 miles of border barrier panels along the southwest border to deter illegal crossings and activity — hampered the migration of endangered species, eroded federal lands, disrupted water flow and "irreparably" damaged sacred tribal sites. As they prepared to construct the wall in Arizona, California, New Mexico and Texas, Trump administration officials waived...

It brings the total amount handed out this fiscal year to more than $770 million. That funding originates from the omnibus bill...

    On Thursday’s broadcast of Newsmax TV’s “Rob Schmitt Tonight,” New York City Councilman Robert Holden (D) stated that President Joe Biden’s “open border” policy is the “how to destroy U.S. cities” in a single term playbook and stated that he thinks the Biden administration has let as many people into the country as they have and sent them all over the country because “they see future voters.” Holden said, “I want a secure border, but, unfortunately, under President Biden, it’s an open border. And, again, it’s, how many are we going to take before it’s over here? This is Joe...

    Move over, COVID-19, and say hello to leprosy. Yes, that leprosy, the biblical plague from the Old and New Testaments. That’s according to the CDC, which says that there is “rising evidence that leprosy has become endemic in the southeastern United States.” Leprosy, also called Hanson’s Disease, is an infection caused by slow-growing bacteria called Mycobacterium leprae, according to the CDC. “It can affect the nerves, skin, eyes, and lining of the nose (nasal mucosa).” Up to 2 million people worldwide are permanently disabled from the disease, which can be transmitted by “prolonged, close contact with someone with untreated leprosy...

    No matter how many crimes occur in Chicago every day – carjackings, muggings, drug deals, political corruption – these rarely make the news, other than in reports of crime statistics. We hear numbers; we rarely learn the victims’ names. There are just too many of them. It’s the rarest of crimes – the incidents of severe police misconduct - that make the news. And the news of the day is a particularly disturbing story. The story broke on Thursday, July 6 that at least one Chicago police officer was being investigated for having sexual contact with illegal aliens (the press...

    Roughly 100 migrants protested outside of the Portland Exposition Building Wednesday morning, briefly blocking traffic along a busy Park Ave, to raise alarm about the “awful conditions” inside the shelter, with one man telling the Maine Wire that there was not enough food and limited ability to shower. The migrants also complained about the uncertain future they face when taxpayer-funded benefits paying for their accommodations run out later this year. “We have children here, but the life is not very good,” said Reagan Mayemba, a migrant staying at the Portland Expo. Mayemba said that they will be “kicked out” in...

    After the Supreme Court ruled that states lack standing to sue President Joe Biden’s administration for not enforcing federal immigration law, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas says he will reinstate the agency’s so-called “sanctuary country” orders that shield most of the nation’s illegal aliens from arrest and deportation. “We applaud the Supreme Court’s ruling,” Mayorkas said .... Snip.... On Friday, the Supreme Court ruled in an 8-1 decision that “a citizen lacks standing to contest the policies of the prosecuting authority when he himself is neither prosecuted nor threatened with prosecution” and thus states lacked standing to...

    The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on United States Taxpayers - 2023 Cost StudyKey HighlightsAt the start of 2023, the net cost of illegal immigration for the United States – at the federal, state, and local levels – was at least $150.7 billion. FAIR arrived at this number by subtracting the tax revenue paid by illegal aliens – just under $32 billion – from the gross negative economic impact of illegal immigration, $182 billion. In 2017, the estimated net cost of illegal migration was approximately $116 billion. In just 5 years, the cost to Americans has increased by nearly $35...

    The Left has spent most of the last few days howling over Joe Biden’s reversal on Washington DC’s reckless criminal-justice “reform” bill. Imagine what they will do if and when Biden decides to reverse his own reckless border policies. With the pressure building for border security after the kidnapping and murders of Americans over the weekend, Biden won’t have much choice but to make changes.According to the New York Times, that time may have arrived:The Biden administration is considering reviving the practice of detaining migrant families who cross the border illegally — the same policy the president shut down over...

    DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas told CNN’s “Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace” on Sunday that when he says the border is secure, he does not mean that people aren’t able to cross the border illegally, because “by that measure, the border has never been secure.” When asked how he can say the border is secure, Mayorkas said, “Right now, the United States has millions of jobs opening due to the economic success of this administration. We have progressed in conquering the pandemic far more than the countries to the south of Mexico, and that makes the United States an appealing place...

    President Joe Biden’s deputies are on track to remove the loopholed Title 42 border barrier on May 11. In practical terms, the Title 42 barrier is “almost meaningless” because it is being used to delay a declining share of the migrants that Biden’s officials are welcoming, said Mark Krikorian, director of the Center for Immigration Studies.
