  • Migrant Kids Being Sent To Former Japanese Internment Camp Site

    LOS ANGELES, CA — The Los Angeles County Fairgrounds, one of the places Japanese Americans were held during World War II, will serve as an emergency shelter for unaccompanied children who have crossed the border into the United States, L.A. County has announced. Hilda Solis, chair of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, said Thursday the decision was made after discussions with the Biden White House. The Biden administration has contacted communities throughout the nation to find space for undocumented children being sheltered in Border Patrol facilities. It even urged, unsuccessfully, that NASA employees go to the border to...

  • Extreme overcrowding: Border Patrol tent in Donna, Texas, holding 5,700 migrants despite 250-person capacity (Where is Kamala?)

    MISSION, Texas - A temporary Border Patrol facility in Donna, Texas, that is meant to hold a maximum of 250 people was holding more than 5,700 people Monday, putting it at 22 times over the legal limit, according to two government officials with firsthand knowledge of the numbers. The extreme overcrowding, which is of added concern because of the coronavirus pandemic, comes as the Biden administration struggles with a border crisis that has seen it take twice as many migrant children into custody as were held during the peak in 2019 during the Trump administration. Rep. Beth Van Duyne, a...

    The Biden administration’s attention along the Mexico border has been consumed for the past several weeks by the record numbers of migrant teenagers and children crossing into the United States without their parents, at a rate that far exceeds the government’s ability to care for them. But as they race to add shelter capacity for these minors, Department of Homeland Security officials are privately warning about what they see as the next phase of a migration surge that could be the largest in two decades, driven by a much greater number of families. DHS expects approximately 500,000 to 800,000 migrants...

    The Biden administration is asking for 'volunteers' from other federal agencies to assist border officials struggling to cope with a massive surge in illegal border crossing, as a Democrat in Congress released new photos of overcrowded holding facilities. A memo from the federal Office of Personnel Management is asking various government agencies to send staff on 'volunteer deployments' at the border of up to 120 days, according to Fox News. Border officials have been overwhelmed by the surge, and thousands of minors are stuck in substandard holding facilities as the government struggles through a backlog to process them.
  • Construction workers frantically build new tent cities to house migrant children: Biden tries to control surge by turning the 125,000-capacity San Diego convention center and local hotels into shelters

    Construction workers were seen frantically building new tent cities to house migrant children in Texas as the Biden administration announces that the San Diego Convention Center will act as a shelter for unaccompanied kids. Workers were seen rapidly transforming a 40-acre site into what's being reported as a permanent processing structure and shelter for unaccompanied migrant minors in Donna, Texas. Images showed pizzas being delivered into the living area of the tented facility. Meanwhile, San Diego Mayor Todd Gloria and County Supervisor Chair Nathan Fletcher said in a joint statement that the convention center would become a temporary shelter for...

    White House press secretary Jen Psaki struggled to explain why President Joe Biden’s administration was considering putting up migrants in hotel rooms. Psaki did not dispute reports that the Biden administration awarded a Texas-based nonprofit $86 million to provide hotel rooms for six months for approximately 1,200 families who cross the southern border. AD Newsmax reporter Emerald Robinson questioned Psaki on why the Biden administration would provide hotel rooms, food, and shelter for migrants even as American national guard troops were forced to sleep on the floor when they protected Capitol Hill. “That’s a disparity a lot of people are...
  • Leaked images from inside migrant centers reveal conditions that are as bad as we thought [Project Veritas]

    The investigative journalist team at Project Veritas has brought to us what the Biden administration and mainstream media refuses to acknowledge. It’s “kids in cages” all over again, only worse this time. Project Veritas released images they obtained from the recently built migrant “housing” facility in Donna, Texas. They are utterly horrifying as children are crammed inside holding bins with “space blankets” covering them, often from head to toe. These are not the types of living conditions the Biden administration wants people to see, which is why until today we’ve never seen them.

    Yemen’s Houthi rebels on Saturday broke their silence on the cause of a fire that tore through a detention centre for migrants earlier this month, killing at least 45 people, mostly Ethiopian migrants. The rebels acknowledged that guards fired three teargas canisters into a crowded hangar in the capital, Sana’a, trying to end a protest by the migrants. A statement by the rebel-run Interior Ministry said at least 11 men from the security forces were detained over the incident, along with a number of senior officials who would be tried before court. About 900 migrants, most of them from Ethiopia,...

    Customs and Border Protection is considering a plan to release migrants who crossed the border illegally without first giving them a court date to reappear. The news comes as Biden officials are blaming the former Trump administration for the border crisis and the number of unaccompanied minors now in custody has swelled to 15,000. A senior CBP source told Fox News that Border Patrol agents in the Rio Grande Valley Sector are considering releasing migrants into the United States without an official Notice to Appear, a process that normally takes hours for each individual or family.

    Denmark has proposed countering the formation of parallel societies by limiting the number of non-Western residents in neighbourhoods to no more than 30 per cent. The proposal aims to have no residential area in the country have a population of more than 30 per cent non-Western migrants within the next decade, with Interior and Housing Minister Kaare Dybvad Bek stating the move is to counter ghettoisation. “We have the next ten years to strike a balance in our integration policy and the way we live and live together,” Dybvad said and added, according to Danish broadcaster TV2: “Otherwise, I think...

    Other than interdicting the flow of children entering the country illegally, solutions to this crisis are hard to come by.Where is Robert Francis O’Rourke today? In June 2018, while running unsuccessfully for Ted Cruz’s Senate seat in Texas, he was outside the gates of the Tornillo facility for unaccompanied alien children (UACs), megaphone in hand. UACs are children who cross the U.S. border illegally and without a parent. There was nothing for O’Rourke to protest about the children’s treatment. Rather, he was protesting the Trump administration for enforcing immigration laws as passed by Congress. Today the Biden administration is activating...
  • How Democrats’ Open Borders Cause Children To Suffer And Die: Democrats and leftists who were outraged over 'family separation' are now silent about the record number of migrant children trafficked across the border.

    There is a direct line from those who attacked the Trump administration for “family separation” at the border to the current pain and suffering of thousands of migrant children. Now that the Biden administration has carried out a policy these critics argued for, the result is a humanitarian disaster, and those who were most vocal about the care of migrant children are now silent.First, the backstory. A legal ruling says the federal government can’t detain migrant children in the United States for more than 20 days. If adults bring children with them to the southern U.S. border, assuming these children...
  • Too little, too late, Joe? Biden finally tells migrants NOT to come to the US amid largest surge in 20 years: President has NO plans to travel to border and still refuses to label situation a 'crisis'

    Joe Biden on Tuesday had a message for migrants considering crossing into the United States: 'Don't come over.' The president's team is struggling to cope with a surge of migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border, in what is shaping up, along with the fight against COVID, to be one of the biggest challenges of his first 100 days. His Homeland Security Secretary, Alejandro Mayorkas, said on Tuesday that the country was on track to see the highest number of arrivals across the southern border in 20 years.

    President Biden on Tuesday urged migrants not to make the journey to the U.S. as his administration struggles to get a handle on a surge at the southern border. "I can say quite clearly don't come over," Biden told George Stephanopoulos of ABC News in an interview scheduled to air Wednesday morning. "Don't leave your town or city or community." Biden conceded the surge "could be" worse than the one that prompted a significant crackdown from the Trump administration and threats to close the border in 2019 but said it was not there yet. Biden echoed what other administration officials...

    Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas on Tuesday disclosed that the migration surge at the US-Mexico border is likely the worst the situation has been in 20 years. Mayorkas, who has refused to call the situation a “crisis,” said in a statement that “[w]e are on pace to encounter more individuals on the southwest border than we have in the last 20 years.” The statement referred to the surge as a “difficult situation,” but said his department is working to handle it “successfully.” Mayorkas disclosed new information, including that most unaccompanied minors housed in cramped detention camps have family already in...

    Open letter to the Mayor of Radenac who " reflects " on a possible reception of "migrants". Subject : refusal to accept illegal immigrants Mr. Mayor, Although geographically far from Brittany, because I am Provençal, I feel in solidarity with all French people, especially in the face of current events: the migratory invasion. It is for this reason that I take the liberty of writing to you to dissuade you from welcoming Syrian “migrants” - and not Syrians - to your village.

    Thousands of Central American migrants, many of them unaccompanied children, have been streaming across the southern border in recent days, overwhelming government agents. Many of those trying to cross the border had been told by Mexican officials that they would be able to enter the US. In one camp on the Mexican side of the border, which had been set up two years ago, some asylum seekers were told that may reopen their cases and they would eventually be able to enter the US to wait out the asylum process, according to a CBS report. Mexican authorities have long tried...
