  • Illegal migrants first to get ‘pallets’ of hard-to-find baby formula

    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.
  • 1.9 million illegal immigrants apprehended at US-Mexico border in 2021, at a cost of $10 billion

    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...
  • Biden Gives Up on Mandatory Vaccines for Migrants

    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...
  • Our Immigration System Isn’t Broken, Democrats Are

    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....

    A couple recent episodes of the Paramount+ series Star Trek: Picard featured Starfleet crew members traveling back in time to present day to beat up U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents, free a busload of illegal immigrants on their way to be deported, and lecture that racism just “took off a hood and put on a suit” in the early 21st Century. Traveling back to 2024 Earth to help save the future of humanity in season two, episode four of the show, titled The Watcher, the crew specifically heads to downtown Los Angeles to achieve their mission.

    Another scandal for the "scandal-free" Obama administration. Not all ICE targets work construction or smuggle drugs. Some are key figures in the Dem machine. But the era of Obama corruption is over. There's a new sheriff in town. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) this week arrested two millionaire fugitives from Ecuador whose family donated heavily to American political campaigns. Roberto and William Isaías, 74 and 75, were detained Wednesday in Miami and taken to a detention facility for undocumented immigrants awaiting deportation, The New York Times reported Friday. ICE told the Times that the brothers were “unlawfully present” in...

    The Biden administration is secretly planning to impose an executive order directing all federal agencies to focus on voter registration and partner with private organizations to boost election turnout, according to members of Congress and a watchdog group. Last March, President Joe Biden signed an executive order stating that federal agencies “shall consider ways to expand citizens’ opportunities to register to vote and to obtain information about, and participate in, the electoral process.” The president’s order says that each agency must submit its plan to Susan Rice, director of the White House Domestic Policy Council, to “promote voter registration and...

    Despite plummeting approval ratings, the Biden administration is continuing its war against America’s borders and sovereignty. That war reached a fever pitch recently as videos surfaced across the internet of illegal aliens being released by government authorities into the U.S. Video broadcast by Fox News late last month showed large numbers of illegal aliens being released into the U.S. Most of those released in the video were single, adult males who told the reporter that they were headed to various destinations across the U.S., including Miami, Houston, and Atlanta. “Fox witnessed men go into a small, unmarked office, then re-emerge...

    Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas says President Joe Biden’s national immigration agenda centers around “justice and equity” for illegal aliens living in the United States. While speaking at the annual U.S. Conference of Mayors in Washington, D.C. this week, Mayorkas bragged about imposing so-called “sanctuary country” orders that prevent the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency from arresting and deporting most of the nation’s 11 to 22 million illegal aliens. As intended, Mayorkas said the orders ensure that illegal aliens are shielded from federal immigration law as “a matter of justice and equity” — a fixture of...

    The Biden administration has cut detentions of illegal immigrants despite the historic surge across the border, and it is relying more on ankle bracelets to monitor migrants despite reports they don’t work.

    The amount of criminal activities and corruption going on in the US today is unimaginable. The Biden government, aided by a corrupt DOJ, is flying planeloads of illegal immigrants from the Southern border to states across the country daily and no one is saying ‘boo’. They are hiding these flights from the public by moving the illegals in the middle of the night. On Thursday night another flight load of illegal aliens boarded a plane in El Paso. Forget about proper identification or COVID-19 vaccines, these people are held to a different standard when compared to the average American. Busses...

    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” of 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...

    AMexican activist leading a caravan of over 1,000 Central American migrants announced that his group expects to meet up with a caravan that's 10 times larger, Border Report writes. The two aim to converge and then proceed toward the U.S.-Mexico border. The organizer, Irineo Mujica, said that the caravans expect to meet in Veracruz on November 18. From there, they will head toward the Arizona-Mexico border. This deviates from the original plan to end this journey—which started near the border of Guatemala—in Mexico City. "We are not going to Mexico City, we are now going the northern border....

    The labor union for ICE officers has filed two workplace safety complaints about the Biden administration’s handling of illegal immigrants and COVID-19 at the border, saying federal employees processing and releasing the migrants face conditions that amount to “a death trap.” The complaints say many of the federal workers are contracting COVID-19. A Texas processing facility designed to hold fewer than 1,000 people at times has topped 4,000 per day. Employees have been falling ill after spending time in close quarters with illegal immigrantsm , who generally aren’t tested for coronavirus infection, according to the complaints....
