    A super PAC backing Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis' presidential run has raised $500,000 into a separate draft committee that is expected to be transferred directly to his campaign in the coming days The group, "Never Back Down" has been encouraging donors to contribute online to the "Draft DeSantis 2024 Fund," a super PAC created in early March to house money from DeSantis donors until his campaign launch. Super PACs can raise unlimited funds, but they are generally considered expenditure-only, meaning they cannot contribute directly to a candidate. Campaign finance experts called the move "unprecedented" and had mixed reactions on if...

    New York City Mayor Eric Adams has called for migrants to be sent to every major city in America as he continues to try and solve the Big Apple's overwhelming immigrant crisis. The mayor has reopened many of the city's closed hotels and turned them into migrant shelters to deal with an influx of asylum seekers in the past months and expected arrivals in the coming weeks. However, on CBS' Face the Nation Sunday, Adams told host Margaret Brennan that this is 'not a burden on one city' and proposed a shared solution. The mayor revealed New York City had...

  • Radical new Biden rule would 'lock up' federal lands Using 'rule' change to alter law adopted by Congress

    Joe Biden has made much use of executive orders, sometimes to make changes that would not be adopted by Congress. For instance, among his many agenda points that he's pursued simply by writing down what he wants, he's worked to redefine the word "sex" in the nation's legacy nondiscrimination laws to include "gender identity" and such. Essentially, his agenda has argued that members of Congress, when they adopted a ban on sex discrimination decades ago, to protect women, they were proclaiming that transgenders must be treated as the sex they choose to represent themselves as being. Now Biden is working...

    Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced this week that he organized for a bus to bring about 40 immigrants north to Denver, Colorado, where they were left near a park, as part of an ongoing plan to move more migrants to the city, according to the Houston Chronicle. Abbott recently announced that Texas has relocated more than 18,500 people as part of his efforts to send migrants who have been processed at the border to northern cities. The governor claimed in an interview earlier this month that these "are the chosen cities by the migrants themselves. Every one of these migrants...

    Conservatives are spending endless hours battling the culture war, but they're missing the most significant issue facing the US, Biden's disastrous open border policies that will lead directly to America's decline. The massive influx of illegal immigrants at the border, now spurred on by Biden's plans to give literally everyone and their cousin asylum (leading to amnesty), will result in a Democrat majority. While migrants have traditionally gravitated toward the nation's population centers, now the administration is bussing them to every little corner of the domestic United States, upending towns in the Midwest, the South, the Rockies, and the deep...
  • Exclusive: Whip Emmer Details How House GOP Passed ‘Strongest’ Border Bill to ‘Ever Hit the Floor’

    The House passed a sweeping border package Thursday that Majority Whip Tom Emmer (R-MN) said was the “strongest” legislation on the issue to ever come to the House floor for a vote. Emmer, speaking in an interview in his Capitol Hill office on Friday, detailed to Breitbart News how an eleventh-hour huddle with roughly three dozen members, just one day prior to the bill vote, was, in part, what led to the Secure the Border Act narrowly passing with two Republican defectors and no Democrat support.

    Chicago got a lot more than it bargained for when the people voted for “sanctuary city” policies. Taking them at their word—that they would welcome hordes of illegal aliens—the governor of border state Texas, Greg Abbott, has been sending busloads of people who cross into his state illegally right to the heart of Chicago. It’s the best idea anyone has come up with yet. Let the sanctuary cities become the new border towns! Let the blowhards who say it’s inhumane to turn people away absorb them! Afterall, they’re the compassionate ones, right? They’re the ones who continually point the finger...

    Chicago residents condemned local leadership last week for plans to house illegal immigrants in a shuttered high school in the neighborhood. Chicago is one of many cities overwhelmed by illegal immigrants seeking asylum amid crisis at America’s southern border. During a May 4 community meeting at South Shore International College Preparatory High School, local residents expressed their outrage at the proposal of housing hundreds of migrants in an already struggling area. “What’s important is that we really establish this is humanitarian crisis, and we are here,” Chicago chief engagement officer Nubia William said as the crowd jeered in opposition. “While...

It is based upon an analysis of hundreds of thousands of detailed Immigration Court records covering the last two decades obtained from the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) by TRAC under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). Both affirmative and defensive asylum applications in the Immigration Courts are included in the data and in this report. Most asylum applications today are considered defensive applications and filed in response to the Department of...
  • GOP Hispanic Leader Organized Meet with Dems to Oppose DeSantis’ on Illegal Migrants

    A Republican Hispanic leader, Lydia Maldonado, organized what seems to be a Democrat Hispanic rally opposing Governor DeSantis’ bill signing for legislation to crack down on illegal immigration, and she’s running for chair of the local Palm Beach County Republican Party (REC). Maldonado claims to be against illegal immigration and supports SB 1718, ensuring that illegal immigrants will not be encouraged to come to Florida. Still, she was part of a group that tried to prevent DeSantis from signing the bill into law. It didn’t work. On May 10th, Governor DeSantis signed the bill, just in time for the end...

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

    Local Hispanic leaders in Palm Beach Beach County are trying to convince Governor DeSantis not to sign a bill into law that will stop illegal immigration in Florida, and it’s not only Democrats who seem to be having an issue. Local Hispanic GOP leader Lydia Maldonado who is running for chair of the local Republican party, says she is against illegal immigration but will not get involved in the local battle with the governor. The recent statement from the legislature sends a strong message. Florida isn’t the state for you if you’re an illegal immigrant. SB 1718 (HB 1617) was...

    With the end of Title 42 looming, Laredo, Texas, Mayor Dr. Victor Trevino declared a state of emergency for his city and unpacked how he is bracing for the coming "hurricane" on "Cavuto Live" Saturday. DR. VICTOR TREVINO: As we saw, the migrant crossings are not here in Laredo. They're in other border cities, but they will be transferred to Laredo for processing. The situation is like a hurricane coming. We have to brace for it, and the border situation is very fluid. Basically the numbers keep moving up and we're preparing to bus some up to northern cities that...

    PASCO COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) — Three Pinellas County, Florida, men were arrested after an anonymous caller reported the group using a “small pickaxe” to hunt an alligator in Holiday, Wednesday evening. According to an arrest report from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, the anonymous caller witnessed the three men harvesting an alligator measuring 5.5 feet. After locating the individuals, authorities said the men admitted to the “illegal take” of the alligator. Two of the men accused the third of using a “weapon that appeared to be a small pickaxe to dispatch the alligator,” the report added. The gator...

    The man accused of fatally shooting five people, including a 9-year-old boy, was caught hiding underneath laundry in a Texas home Tuesday after a four-day manhunt. Alleged gunman Francisco Oropesa, 38, was arrested in Montgomery County around 6:30 p.m. – just 75 minutes after a tip came in that alerted law enforcement to the fugitive’s whereabouts, authorities said. The suspect, a Mexican national who’s reportedly been deported four times, was taken into custody without incident. San Jacinto County Sheriff Greg Capers called the suspect a “coward” in a Tuesday night press conference and said Oropesa was “caught hiding in a...

    This is great news! Time to pop the champagne corks, break out the canapés and brie, and have a big party. Illegal migration is down 90% because of Joe Biden’s tremendously effective border policies! I always suspected that all that whining by governors and mayors has been all over nothing. Sure, Mayor Adams of NYC has complained that illegal migrants are “destroying” his city, and outgoing Mayor of Chicago Lori Lightfoot is begging Governor Abbot to quit shipping illegal migrants to her city.

    White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Monday discussed the brutal slaying of five people in Texas without noting the fugitive accused of the heinous crime is an illegal immigrant who had previously been deported four times. During her daily briefing, Jean-Pierre provided an update on the manhunt currently underway for 38-year-old Francisco Oropesa, the Mexican national accused of gunning down five people – including a nine-year-old boy – inside a home in Cleveland, Texas, last Friday. The White House spokeswoman called for more stringent gun control measures – but not immigration controls – in the wake of the tragedy....

    Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) sent a letter to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) on Sunday urging him to not bus any more migrants to Chicago, calling his move “inhumane and dangerous.” “Chicago is a Welcoming City and we collaborate with County, State, and community partners to rise to this challenge, but your lack of consideration or coordination in an attempt to cause chaos and score political points has resulted in a critical tipping point in our ability to receive individuals and families in a safe, orderly, and dignified way,” Lightfoot wrote in the letter. Lightfoot said that Texas was...
