    Mayor Eric Adams is seeking a suspension of the city’s “right to shelter” regulation as it struggles to provide housing, food and legal services to over 40,000 migrants with limited federal assistance. The New York City Law Department submitted an application on Tuesday night requesting that the Big Apple’s decades-old “right to shelter” regulation is modified, explaining that the surge of migrants has placed “unprecedented demands” on the city’s resources. “Given that we’re unable to provide care for an unlimited number of people and are already overextended, it is in the best interest of everyone, including those seeking to come...

    U.S. border patrol agents have seen a 50% drop in the number of migrants crossing the border since the pandemic-era immigration policy known as Title 42 expired at midnight on Thursday, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said on CNN's "State of the Union" program on Sunday. "Over the past two days, the United States Border Patrol has experienced a 50% drop in the number of encounters versus what we were experiencing earlier in the week before Title 42 ended at midnight on Thursday," Mayorkas said. "It is still early. We are in day three. But we have been planning for...

    A TikTok user named Paulina was recently terrorized beyond imagining while at the Rainbow Oaks Country Market, in Fallbrook, California. No, she wasn’t shot at by an illegal alien with an illegal gun. Nor was she beaten by screaming men claiming to be women. This was even worse than being misgendered. The National Anthem played on the restaurant’s television and sound system, and diners stopped eating, stood up, and placed their hands over their hearts. For Paulina, this triggered fear and, on her part, racism. That’s depressing. Even more depressing is that the most popular commenters shared her fear, outrage,...

    This week, House Republicans blocked a law that would have allowed non-citizens to vote in municipal elections in Washington, DC. This is a reminder of how important the midterm elections are. If the Novermber elections had only gone a little bit differently, this law would have passed. More than 150 Democrats voted for this measure. The Federalist reported: House Republicans Block DC Law That Would Allow Illegal Residents To Vote In a win for election integrity, the House of Representatives voted to overturn a D.C. law that would give noncitizens a right to vote in municipal elections Thursday. “I applaud...

    Road signs warning drivers of "unexpected pedestrians" have gone up in El Paso, Texas amid a surge in migrant crossings at the southern border -- with risks posed to both drivers and migrants. Signs warning drivers to "watch for unexpected pedestrians" have gone up in recent months in El Paso along highways next to border barriers sealing off the border with Mexico. El Paso is one of the areas that saw some of the biggest spikes in migrants coming across the border in recent months, with the city declaring a state of emergency in December. There were more than 2.3...
  • Misuse of Texas Data Understates Illegal Immigrant Criminality

    Summary: Activists and academics have been misusing data from the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) in studies claiming that illegal immigrants have relatively low crime rates. These studies do not appreciate that it can take years for Texas to identify convicts as illegal immigrants while they are in custody. As a result, the studies misclassify as native-born a significant number of offenders who are later identified as illegal immigrants. Facts About the DPS Data: Due to delays in identification, the number of illegal immigrants arrested or incarcerated in Texas is undercounted at any given time. Recently convicted illegal immigrants...

    President Joe Biden is preparing to sign an executive order protecting 600,000 illegal immigrants from deportation, NBC News reported Thursday, citing “people close to the White House.” The move is being made in advance of a decision from the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals regarding the future of the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. DACA protects illegal immigrants who arrived in the U.S. as children — so-called Dreamers — from deportation and allows them access to work permits. As of December 2021, 611,470 migrants were protected under the program, according to the Migration Policy Insitute. The Fifth...

    Officials say a Pinellas County deputy was killed overnight in a hit-and-run crash at a construction site on Interstate 275 near Roosevelt Boulevard.

Video from a Hispanic Texas farmer shows illegal immigrants fleeing Border Patrol first trying to get in his house, but when unsuccessful, entering his elderly grandfather’s home next door. The farmer’s 150-acre ranch, which his family has owned for more than 100 years, abuts the U.S.-Mexico border. “Well, this is my house. My house where I live with my children in this house right here,” the farmer narrates in the video. “There’s your freaking border wall. … Eight individuals just crossed the freaking border wall, running. … Tried going in my door but the door was locked....

    After Florida Governor Ron DeSantis delivered roughly 50 illegal immigrants to swanky Martha's Vineyard — much to the dismay of liberals — the island community that's home to the Obamas and a Who's Who of other elites has declared the situation to be a crisis. While Democrats insist that there's no border crisis — despite a record number of got-aways, migrant deaths, and border apprehensions — their friends on Martha's Vineyard have decided 50 illegal immigrants are just too much to handle, despite being a proclaimed sanctuary. When the "Visit Martha's Vineyard" tweeted out "an update on current humanitarian crisis"...

    Republicans have expressed outrage over the controversial TSA policy. The head of the Transportation Security Administration said on Thursday that "under 1,000" illegal immigrants have been allowed to board planes using warrants as identification this calendar year -- as he faced a grilling on the matter from Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo. Hawley asked TSA Administrator David Pekoske at a Senate hearing about a TSA policy that allows illegal immigrants to use warrants, which represent civil immigration enforcement and are not criminal arrest warrants, as an alternative form of identification. "How many individuals have presented TSA with arrest warrants or deportation...

    The nationwide shortage of baby formula that has sent moms desperately rushing from store to store has evaded one lucky group: illegal immigrants detained by the border patrol. According to videos posted by a Florida lawmaker, the Biden administration has been shipping “pallets” of baby formula to migrant holding facilities. “They are sending pallets, pallets of baby formula to the border,” said Republican Rep. Kat Cammack in one of two online postings yesterday. “Meanwhile, in our own district at home, we cannot find baby formula,” she added, holding a photo of empty shelves where the formula would be.

    The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) released a new report on Wednesday that showed that roughly 1.9 million illegal immigrants who entered the United States throughout the first year of the Biden presidency were apprehended. "Based on FAIR's most recent comprehensive fiscal cost study, illegal aliens are likely imposing a net fiscal burden of at least $143.1 billion," FAIR writes in the report. "That's an increase of approximately $9.4 billion over the past year." The number of illegal immigrants living in the US increased from 14.5 million at the end of 2020 to 15.5 million at the end of...

    SOUTHMOST, Texas—The Biden administration appears to have abandoned its effort to ensure all migrants apprehended by immigration authorities are inoculated against COVID-19, just a month after the White House said vaccines would be mandatory. According to several individuals familiar with the matter, some of whom requested anonymity to speak candidly, Border Patrol officials in the Rio Grande Valley are exempting migrants from such countries as Guatemala, Haiti, and Mexico from vaccine mandates. And migrants from Nicaragua, Cuba, and Venezuela must only receive one dose of the vaccine before they are released into the U.S. interior. DHS in March issued a...

    Source: Townhall Media/Julio RosasIt’s religious dogma to the left: our immigration system is broken and the only fix is more cowbell. Ok, maybe not more cowbell, but a complete overhaul of the system – “comprehensive immigration reform” – which is code, or “dog whistle,” to put it in terms Democrats will understand, for amnesty. Sure, it would also involve a lot of other things progressives leftists admit we need to “fix” about the system, but without amnesty, they aren’t interested in any of it. Which goes to show you that, in fact, the immigration system is not broken, Democrats are....
