  • DHS Chief Mayorkas: ‘Justice and Equity’ for Illegal Aliens Is Joe Biden’s Agenda

    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...
  • Soros-Funded Group Gets $158M Government Contract to Help Illegal Immigrants Avoid Deportation

    A leftist group funded by billionaire George Soros secured a massive government contract to help illegal immigrants avoid being deported. The Vera Institute for Justice (VIJ), which “views immigration enforcement agencies as a ‘threat’ to civil liberties, secured a $158 million taxpayer-funded contract to help unaccompanied minors avoid deportation,” according to records obtained by Fox News reporter Joe Schoffstall. VIJ President and Director Nicholas Turner exploited the deaths of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor in the organization’s 2020 annual report to assail America as harboring “structural racism.” In addition, Turner attacked the American criminal justice system as having “roots established...
  • Why 2021 Was A Disastrous Year for America’s Border Security

    Source: Townhall Media/Julio RosasNow that 2021 has come to an end, it is worth reviewing what a disastrous year it was for America’s border security and sovereignty. The year started with President Donald Trump warning his incoming successor that a border surge was looming, and that ripping apart successful policies would lead to a crisis. Tragically, but predictably, Joe Biden ignored the advice of his predecessor, and started tearing proven Trump-era policies apart on his first day in office. On Jan. 20, Biden issued a proclamation terminating Trump’s emergency declaration at the border, and ending funding for the border wall....

    Source: Townhall Media/Julio RosasI want to add a few notes to my Christmas weekend column on the Census Bureau's July 2021 state population estimates and what stories they tell about growth and decline in the first 15 months of the coronavirus pandemic. THE IMMIGRATION BUST The big news is about immigration. In the years from 2010 to 2019, the Census Bureau recorded an increase in "international migration" -- immigration, in layman's language -- of 873,000. For the 15 months from April 2020 to July 2021, the corresponding number is only 257,000 -- down 71% from the average of the years...

    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced Monday it will use border security funding allocated by Congress to close wall gaps and pay for environmental and clean-up projects in areas of Arizona, California and Texas affected by barrier construction undertaken by the Trump administration. The projects authorized... include installing drainage to prevent flooding, mitigating soil erosion, completing roads used by Border Patrol agents, demobilizing construction and equipment storage sites and discarding unused materials. Mayorkas also authorized U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to erect barriers to close "small" gaps along some wall sections that were left open when construction was...

    Colombian cops have pictured a 10-strong people trafficking gang called 'Without Borders' who charged migrants to help them on their journey to the US. Investigators there dismantled a people trafficking ring that helped migrant cross from Ecuador into Colombia and then ferried them north to Panama, where they made their way into Mexico before reaching the United States border. At least 10 members of the migrant smuggling network, know as ‘Without Borders,’ were taken into custody during a series of raid in the western department of Nariño, the Attorney General’s Office said Saturday... ...Depending on their place of origin, the...

    Police have identified the victims of a car crash Saturday involving a human smuggler as a mother and daughter from Texas. The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) confirmed the mother, 59, and daughter, 22, were locals from Mission. The alleged smuggler ran a stop sign while fleeing from police and T-boned the victims’ vehicle. He also allegedly had six illegal immigrants in his vehicle, all of whom are now in custody. One of the immigrants flew through the windshield upon impact, but survived. Officers have not yet released the pair’s identities, but did confirm they were the only deaths...

    President Joe Biden has slashed the deportation of illegal migrants from 25 cities by roughly 90 percent, so helping business groups with a flood of desperate, low-wage workers. Biden’s business giveaway was revealed by the Center for Immigration Studies, which also showed that Biden’s deputies have reduced by two-thirds the deportation of criminal migrants who threaten Americans and the nation’s growing population of illegal migrants.

    President Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas says the agency’s new so-called “sanctuary country” orders will ensure that the “majority” of illegal aliens living in the United States are not deported. On Monday, Mayorkas announced that the administration has started implementing its latest sanctuary country orders that protect most criminal illegal aliens by barring Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents from arresting and deporting them. “Today is an important step forward in ensuring that our workforce is empowered to exercise its prosecutorial discretion and focus its enforcement efforts on those who pose a threat to our...

    The Center’s analysts have written extensively on the various immigration provisions contained in the bill. Steve Camarota calculated that illegal aliens will receive $10.5 billion from the Child Tax Credit since the bill drops the requirement that the child have a Social Security number. I have highlighted in a series of posts how legal immigration will significantly increase, mainly via a green card giveaway to Big Tech. But the keystone of the immigration provisions in “Build Back Better” has been the attempt to amnesty millions of illegal aliens. Originally, Democrats sought what you might call "amnesty premium" in the form...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 23 November 2021 | HUGO GURDON
    President Joe Biden is on target, with policies at once vapid and cynical, to allow more than 2 million illegal migrants across the southern border into the United States this year — the worst influx since records began 97 years ago. In October, Customs and Border Protection officials intercepted 164,303 people crossing the Mexican frontier. They come from 150 different countries, increasingly from the Eastern Hemisphere, and most are simply economic migrants. People head here primarily for the understandable reason that they’d prefer to live in comfort in a rich country......They don’t make coherent, let alone plausible, claims to be...

    The social spending bill approved by the House Friday in a 220-213 vote includes the most extensive immigration reform package reviewed by Congress in 35 years, albeit in a much reduced version from what proponents originally sought. If the provision is approved by the Senate as-is, the immigration measure in the bill would allow undocumented people present in the U.S. since before 2011 up to 10 years of work authorization, falling short of an initial goal to offer them a pathway to citizenship. The provision approved by the House offers a sort of waiver to immigration laws, using a process...

But is it too little, too late?DEL RIO, Texas — What happens in border states when the federal government refuses to enforce immigration laws amid a record surge of illegal immigration? Are those states, and the elected officials charged with maintaining law and order in them, supposed to stand back and accept the ensuing chaos in their communities?

US Customs and Border Protection had referred the incident -- where Border Patrol agents on horseback aggressively confronted migrants -- to the watchdog, according to the Department of Homeland Security. Instead, CBP's Office of Professional Responsibility is now investigating the incident, the department said, adding that the office has reviewed videos and photographs and interviewed witnesses, employees and CBP leadership....

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is frog-marching her vulnerable members to a political suicide vote on a bill that’s likely dead on arrival in the Senate.On November 2, five House Democrats—enough to block the passage of the spending spree that the party hopes to enact via the budget reconciliation process—wrote to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California, urging her “to only bring a bill to the floor for which we have a strong level of confidence…will be ruled in order by the Senate parliamentarian and earn passage in the U.S. Senate.”The lawmakers have justifiable reason for concern.

    Since Joe Biden has taken office, we have seen him not wasting any time seeking to open our U.S. border and flood our nation with illegals and refugees from God knows where. Our nation was founded on the rule of law and founded on the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God. Many Americans today despise any rule of law and seek a narcissistic form of life, which is outworked in lawlessness (Rom. 1:18-32). This topic of immigration is not a hard topic to understand when one sees this topic through the prism of our founding, the rule of constitutional...

    TIJUANA (Reuters) - Emboldened by news that the United States and Mexico will reopen shared land-border crossings, hundreds of migrants have arrived at Mexican border cities like Tijuana, hoping the reset will make it easier to cross and seek U.S. asylum. Starting on Monday, the nearly 2,000-mile (3,200-km) border will be open again to non-essential travel after a 20-month closure aimed at curbing the spread of COVID-19. Both countries have succeeded in lowering new infections and vaccinating border communities...
