    The initial rollout will consist of 10,000 cards.. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is eyeing a summer rollout for a controversial ID card pilot program for illegal immigrants being released into the U.S. And the agency hopes it will modernize the documentation process for removal proceedings. The ICE Secure Docket Card program was first reported on in 2022, and Fox Digital obtained images of the card last year. Now, ICE is planning a limited rollout of the program. ICE confirmed to Fox News Digital this week the pilot program is expected to commence this summer with the distribution of approximately...

  • The Ideological Roots Of The Open Borders Push: Here's the Answer to the Question - Why does the Biden administration want open borders?

    Why does the Biden administration want open borders? As a researcher and writer on immigration, that’s the question I often get asked.Here are the three reasons I think are behind President Joe Biden’s deliberate border chaos:electoral politics, extortion, and, most insidiously, ideology.I’ll start with ideology and come back to the other two reasons in my next columns.The most dangerous driver behind Biden’s open borders is ideological. Policy differences can be negotiated, but as we’re seeing on college campuses, people fanatically committed to an idea can prove intransigent, regardless of the facts.When you see the word “abolition” used in connection with...
  • The Truth About The Mass Deportation Program, Operation Wetback

    Seventy years ago in 1954, immigration authorities created a mass deportation program in the face of out-of-control intrusions at our southern border. Then, like now, the gravity of the problem called for a dramatic policy response. Unlike now, the federal government rapidly responded, creating a system of roaming “deportation parties” concentrated on border-area factories and farms, netting tens of thousands of illegals in its first few days. The model, which would establish Border Patrol and ICE as we know them today, would later be dubbed, “Operation Wetback.” Intensely reviled by the globalist Left even to this day, the program is...

    Texas Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar and his wife were indicted Friday on charges of conspiracy and accepting nearly $600,000 in bribes from foreign entities, the Justice Department announced. Prosecutors allege Cuellar and his wife, Imelda Cuellar, began accepting the roughly $600,000 in bribes beginning as early as December of 2014 from an oil and gas company owned by Azerbaijan's government as well as a bank headquartered in Mexico City. While Cuellar's wife allegedly propped up sham front companies on the promise of providing consulting services to the two companies in order to launder the payments, she "performed little to no...

    Sometimes it's hard to be a woman, to paraphrase Tammy Wynette. Down in Mexico, it's awful to read the crime statistics. This is the story:According to new figures from the Mexican Executive Secretariat of the National Public Security System’s (SESNSP) monthly report on gender violence in Mexico, six women were murdered per day on average during March 2024. With 200 intentional homicides committed against women in March, alongside the respective 200 and 221 incidents recorded in January and February, Mexico registered a total of 621 murders during the first quarter of 2024. Despite March’s slight decline in homicide figures, the...

    The United States and Mexico plan to “clamp down” on illegal border crossings, both leaders said on Monday, according to a report from Reuters. Reportedly, in a phone conversation, President Joe Biden and President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said that their administrations will take steps to stop illegal border crossings. "In the short term, the two leaders ordered their national security teams to work together to immediately implement concrete measures to significantly reduce irregular border crossings while protecting human rights," the leaders said in a joint statement.“President Biden and President López Obrador also pledged to advance initiatives to address the...

    Representative Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that Democrats had to win the election because former President Donald Trump was “predicting a bloodbath.” Saturday, at a rally in Dayton, OH, Trump said, “If you’re listening, President Xi — and you and I are friends — but he understands the way I deal. Those big monster car manufacturing plants that you’re building in Mexico right now, and you think you’re going to get that, you’re going to not hire Americans, and you’re going to sell the cars as now we’re going to put a 100% tariff...

    The population of Providence, R.I., has barely held even since 2020. Had it not been for some 8,300 immigrants who settled in Providence County, it would have shrunk by 1.3 percent by last year. Same in South Bend, Ind., where some 1,700 immigrants into Saint Joseph County barely filled a gap left by locals ditching town. Immigrants slowed demographic decline in more than 1,100 counties from 2020 to 2023, according to census estimates. Their numbers made up more than the entire growth of the population in 131 of them. The demographic reality casts immigration in a different light, not as...

    The Government and Accountability Office (GAO) issued a report on whether the Biden administration violated the Impoundment and Control Act of 1974 by blocking funds intended for construction of the southern border wall, because of a request by House Republicans. While the GAO ultimately cleared the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) of violating the law, the report did confirm that DHS used congressionally-appropriated border wall funds for environmental planning and other non-barrier construction.

López Obrador has hotly denied in the past that any fentanyl is produced in Mexico, saying Mexican cartels only press it into pills or add finishing touches. But Felipe de Jesus Gallo, the head of Mexico’s Criminal Investigation Agency,...

After he mocked an ad from the Trump campaign targeting Latino voters, the “Daily Show” guest host expressed dismay over polls showing he was gaining ground with Latinos. “I mean, clearly, Trump isn’t making any effort to get Latino voters or make them a priority,” Leguizamo scoffed. “But the thing that hurts the most is that his lazy a– strategy is actually working.” he comedy show played a news clip reading the results of a poll...

Catherine Cortez Masto (D., Nev.) is an 18-year-old migrant who entered the United States illegally, the Reno Gazette-Journal reported on Tuesday. "[Elmer Rueda-Linares] entered the United States March 12, 2021, at or near the Rio Grande City, Texas, Port of Entry without inspection by an immigration official," the Department of Homeland Security told the outlet in a statement on Tuesday, adding Rueda-Linares was arrested but "later released on his own recognizance June 22, 2021."

One of the organizations operating out of the Resource Center Matamoros (RCM) has ties to Biden’s Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, whose articles of impeachment the U.S. House of Representatives delivered to the Senate Tuesday afternoon.The flyers, which the Oversight Project posted photos of on X, read “Reminder to vote for President Biden when you are in...

    Plenty of people think Joe Biden's open borders is mainly about millions of illegals rolling into the U.S., while the billions rolling into Mexico's notorious crime cartels as a result is Mexico's problem, not ours. But that's not quite what's going on. Mexico's cartels have grown so big and so powerful from migrant and drug smuggling that they not only threaten Mexico, they are now taking their internecine warfare on the road into the U.S., which now faces a Tijuana-like future. If you recall the sight of all those Tijuana cars burning as that city shut down from cartel warfare,...

    President Joe Biden indicated in a new interview that he is considering taking executive action to secure the southern border. “Have you made a final decision on taking executive order in terms of what you want to do at the border? That includes the power to shut down the border, as it was suggested,” Univision’s Enrique Acevedo asked Biden in an interview that aired late Tuesday night. “Well, it’s suggested that we’re examining whether or not I have that power,” Biden answered. “I would have that power under the legislation,” the president continued, referring to the Senate’s $118 billion spending...

    Mayor Eric Adams keeps blaming Texas Gov. Greg Abbott as the culprit responsible for the city’s migrant crisis, which has hoovered up millions in taxpayer resources. In the latest broadside, Adams dared Abbott to spend a night in a NYC migrant shelter, while the no-thanks Abbot fired back that Adams’s sanctuary city policies were “aiding and abetting” the border disaster. Some 37,000 of New York’s estimated 150,000 migrants — or 25% — were bused from Texas. But there’s another number, comparable to that, that Adams should blame on another politician: Joe Biden.

    Let's file this one in the "you can't make this up" category. Down Mexico way, they are running out of farm workers. This is the story: For decades, Mexicans crossed the border to pick Americans’ lettuce, grapes and strawberries. Mexico had a seemingly inexhaustible supply of farmhands — tough, hard-working men who did the jobs most Americans didn’t want. But the country is running short of farmworkers.The workforce is graying; nearly three-quarters of Mexican campesinos are over 45. Young people are turning up their noses at farm jobs. And those willing to do migrant work have other options. Nearly 300,000...

    QUITO, Ecuador (AP) — Mexico's government severed diplomatic ties with Ecuador after police broke into the Mexican Embassy to arrest a former Ecuadorian vice president, an extraordinary use of force that shocked and mystified regional leaders and diplomats. Ecuadorian police late Friday broke through the external doors of the embassy in the capital, Quito, to arrest Jorge Glas, who had been residing there since December. Glas sought political asylum at the embassy after being indicted on corruption charges. The raid prompted Mexico's President Andrés Manuel López Obrador to announce the breaking off of diplomatic relations with Ecuador on Friday evening,...
