    A suspected member of a “virulently anti-Western” terrorist group was turned loose by federal authorities after being apprehended crossing the US-Mexico border and, later, freed again when he went before an immigration judge, according to a report. Customs and Border Protection agents apprehended and released Mohammad Kharwin, 48, after he illegally entered the US near San Ysidro, Calif., in March of 2023, despite suspicions the Afghan national was on the FBI’s terrorist watchlist, according to NBC News. Kharwin was released under Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s “Alternatives to Detention” program – a process that generally requires migrants to submit to GPS...

    Chicago’s self-professed progressive Mayor Brandon Johnson is pushing the Biden administration to cut loose with more work permits for the tens of thousands of illegals sheltering in the city even as local black unemployment soars to many times the national average. As Chicago has been beset by nearly 40,000 illegals in the city’s 20 shelters, without work permits, illegals have a more have a difficult time getting work in Chicago, and Johnson has been pushing for more of these permits — which must come from the federal government. But Johnson has been piqued by the slow-moving wheels of the feds....

    A rowdy mob at the Randall’s Island migrant shelter was busted early Monday morning after an alleged gang attack on a man at the makeshift Manhattan facility, police said.

    Leonel Moreno, the “migrant influencer” who mocked America on social media and encouraged migrants to squat in the homes of US citizens, is facing potential federal firearms charges, The Post has exclusively learned. Internal federal documents reviewed by The Post show the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has been in contact with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) regarding Moreno, and is mulling charges against him. The exact charges are not known, but sources said they would likely be brought under a section of the Gun Control Act which prohibits those on parole from possessing, shipping, transporting or receiving...
  • Biden’s controversial migrant flights to US cities ignite national security concerns; Florida combats program.

    A bombshell report exposes the Biden administration’s covert operation to fly hundreds of thousands of migrants directly into U.S. cities, bypassing border security and sparking national security concerns. Florida, Texas, New York, and California bear the brunt of this clandestine program, with the majority of migrant flights landing in Miami, a revelation that raises serious questions about transparency and accountability. Despite the alarming implications for state sovereignty and national security, lawyers for Biden’s immigration agencies stonewall attempts to obtain crucial data through FOIA requests, citing dubious concerns about compromising safety. This blatant disregard for transparency only fuels suspicions of a...

    New York City will give debit cards to migrant families for food and baby supplies. The first cards will be distributed to families on Monday, sparking fear that the new program could lead to fraud or abuse as well as speculation that the city will be prioritizing migrants over current citizens.

    New York City Comptroller Brad Lander has drawn outrage for claiming that giving each of the tens of thousands of migrants pouring into the Big Apple free legal representation could net billions in economic benefits for New York state. Lander’s office said in a report that coughing up individual lawyers to rep migrants could prevent roughly 53,000 asylum seekers from being deported across the Empire State — resulting in an estimated net benefit of $8.4 billion for local, state and federal governments. “Access to work authorization leads to higher wages. The higher earning power generates more tax revenue. Higher personal...

    When a wave of migrants began arriving in Democratic-run cities far from the Southern border two years ago, officials welcomed them with open arms. Now they’re limiting aid to new arrivals as their instinct for compassion confronts hard budgetary realities. In recent days, New York and Chicago — two of the nation’s largest cities — have instituted substantial changes to their shelter policies. In Chicago, the city began evicting migrants who had overstayed a new 60-day time limit, saying it did not have the resources to meet the need. In New York, migrants had benefited from the city’s right to...

The $106 million in aid — the rest of a $150 million package earmarked for the Big Apple by Congress last summer — will be made available on Thursday after the Federal Emergency Management Agency formally signs off on City Hall’s reimbursement applications, according to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s office. “I worked hard with NYC and FEMA to deliver these funds,” Schumer (D-NY)...
