    Agents find 75 migrants locked inside refrigerated trailer NEWS by: Christina Aguayo Posted: Oct 31, 2021 / 06:55 PM CDT / Updated: Oct 31, 2021 / 06:55 PM CDT EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – Border patrol agents in Southeast Texas found nearly 100 migrants locked inside a refrigerated tractor trailer. Photos of the migrants were released by Customs and Border Patrol (CBP). The migrants were discovered after the driver of the truck had to go through an immigration inspection, where he was being questioned in regards to his citizenship. A Border Patrol canine alerted agents to the trailer. When agents...
  • Owner of Washington for-profit detention center owes immigrant detainees $17 million in back pay, jury rules

    A federal jury has determined that The GEO Group must pay nearly $17.3 million to immigration detainees who were paid $1 a day to perform tasks such as cooking and cleaning at the company’s for-profit detention center in Washington. . . . . GEO maintained that the detainees were not employees under the Washington Minimum Wage Act. Even if they were, the company said, it would be unlawfully discriminatory for Washington to require GEO to pay them minimum wage — now $13.69 an hour — when the state doesn’t pay minimum wage to inmates who work at its own prisons...

    In an undercover video made by an investigative reporter for Project Veritas, Democrat strategist and activist Wendy Martinez admitted that "Gov. Phil Murphy does intend to issue a vaccination mandate, but not until after he is reelected. Right now, too many voters are all into the 'my body, my rights' shit. If they knew that Phil intended to order everyone to take the jab they'd probably vote him out of office." Matthew Urquijo, manager of New Jersey Forward, a coalition of powerful public and private sector interests supportive of Murphy's governing agenda, echoed Martinez's fears, saying that "our polls show...

    The Biden administration is in talks to offer immigrant families that were separated during the Trump administration around $450,000 a person in compensation, according to people familiar with the matter, as several agencies work to resolve lawsuits filed on behalf of parents and children who say the government subjected them to lasting psychological trauma.
  • Time for Immigration to be Woke, Fair and Equitable

    10/06/2021 10:08:40 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 8 replies ^ | October 6, 2021 | George Mullen
    Source: Townhall Media/Julio RosasIt is long overdue that immigration (legal and illegal) into the United States be made fair, equitable and inclusive to all. This is what Wokeism is all about, right? Of the nearly 8 billion people on Earth, the population breaks out into five broad racial categories: Asian 54%, Black 15%, White 15%, Hispanic 8%, Middle Eastern 8%. In order to promote diversity, as well as be fair, equitable and inclusive to all, shouldn’t U.S. immigration policy be directly aligned with these global racial percentages? This is certainly not being done today — and, astonishingly, a massive and...

    AGUA FRIA, Panama (AP) — In an isolated cemetery in Panama’s Darien province, migrants who die crossing the most treacherous segment of their journey toward the United States are buried with a plasticized card containing what little information is available about them in case one day someone comes looking. On a recent afternoon, white-suited workers laid to rest 15 sets of remains in a long trench at the back of the cemetery. A local priest standing at the head of the trench with a candle, crucifix and flowers performed a simple ceremony. On the white body bags were handwritten clues:...

    For all of you who, like me, might have been briefly fooled into thinking that Joe Biden was starting to take illegal immigration a bit more seriously during the showdown at Del Rio, this week brings us yet another indication that nothing has changed. The Free Beacon reports that Immigration and Customs Enforcement has just announced the hiring of a new Principal Legal Adviser. The PLA oversees more than two dozen field locations and more than 1,200 attorneys. They are also the agency’s chief representative in all litigation and removal proceedings for illegal aliens. It’s a very important role. So...

    House Democrats rejected a plan this week that would have required immigrants to the United States to take one of three available Chinese coronavirus vaccines despite mandates on American citizens from President Joe Biden’s administration. Last week, Biden ordered that the Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) develop a rule requiring all private companies with 100 or more employees to mandate the vaccine or be subjected to weekly coronavirus tests.

    Afghans arriving in the United States and being temporarily resettled at U.S. military bases will receive one-time payments from the State Department, funded by American taxpayers. As Breitbart News reported, President Joe Biden’s administration is looking to turn various military bases in Texas, Wisconsin, New Jersey, Virginia, New Mexico, and Indiana into refugee camps that can accommodate about 50,000 Afghans. Most of all Afghans headed to military bases for temporary resettlement are arriving on “humanitarian parole,” which does not expire for at least two years. These Afghans are not eligible for Special Immigrant Visas (SIVs), P-2 visas, or refugee status....

    Ted Cruz claimed Afghan refugees can call an uber to leave their holding location in the U.S. as Republican criticism of the Biden administration's vetting process ramped up ahead of the U.S. withdraw from Afghanistan. The criticism came amid a report that an Afghan man who had been convicted of rape and had been deported from the U.S. was allowed to board an Afghan evacuation flight to America. Cruz is one several Republican lawmakers who have criticized President Joe Biden's handling of the situation in Afghanistan.

    Sixty-six progressive Democrats are telling President Joe Biden to open the nation’s border to Afghan migrants because the U.S. bears moral responsibility for the wars in Afghanistan. “After decades of disastrous U.S. intervention, one thing is clear: We have a moral responsibility to provide safe harbor and refuge for the Afghan people,” the August 26 letter, which does not set an upper limit on the inflow of Afghan migrants, states. “The U.S. war in Afghanistan has caused irreparable harm to Afghans,” the letter claims, without mentioning the many hard-fought humanitarian gains Americans delivered or mentioning the almost 2,400 dead Americans...

    Incompetence, political weakness and fearmongering about foreigners in search of a new home has created a cruel immigration policy. But this structural cruelty pales in comparison to the comments made by some legislators who tout their opposition to welcoming Afghan refugees to our shores after many of these refugees put their lives on the line for two decades by helping American soldiers in that war-torn country. Thankfully, some state governors are breaking ranks with the nativists and have announced that they will welcome the Afghan refugees. "They supported our military efforts and served as translators, interpreters, drivers and more --...

    Following Biden’s disastrous pullout, it’s clear that many Afghan citizens will come to America. Even if the administration doesn’t ship them in, they’ll head for our southern border, just as every other Third World immigrant is. And here’s where the problems arise: Recently arriving Afghan immigrant men (unlike the ones who came to the West decades ago) have an appalling record of sexual assault against women and children once they’re in the West. Remember in 2014 and 2015, when Angela Merkel opened Europe’s gates to the people fleeing the Syrian Civil War and the other fallout from Obama’s “Arab Spring”?...

    Anti-migrant protesters have attacked houses, shops and cars owned by Syrians in Turkey's capital after tensions flared over the alleged killing of a local teenager. The violence erupted on Wednesday night following reports that a Syrian refugee had stabbed two Turkish men in a fight. Hundreds of locals descended on an area of Ankara where a community of Syria migrants and refugees live. Videos online showed groups of men overturning cars and vandalising shops. Anti-migrant sentiment in Turkey has been rising in recent years, with a number of politicians campaigning for harsher restrictions. Tensions have flared recently with the arrival...
