Biden’s plan to swing the states — failing

Foreign-Born Voting Population Rises in 75% of Swing States Since 2016

Breitbart reports that America’s foreign-born population has been augmented by the Biden regime.

Mass immigration to the United States has pushed up the number of foreign-born voters across 75 percent of the nation’s critical swing states since 2016, new data shows.

The data, published by the American Immigration Council, reveals the extent to which ongoing mass immigration levels are dramatically changing the demographic makeup of the American electorate.

In nine of 12 swing states, for instance, the foreign-born voting population has risen over the last six years. Most prominently, Florida, Michigan, Texas, and Arizona have seen the largest jumps in foreign-born voters over that time.

Foreign-born voters in Florida, for instance, now account for more than 17 percent of the state’s electorate. In Texas, more than 11 percent of the state’s electorate are foreign-born voters and in Arizona, the foreign-born voting population accounts for 10.5 percent of the electorate.

“In swing states where close races are expected to take place, the extent to which changing electorates can be activated by each campaign may ultimately help determine who wins and loses come November,” American Immigration Council researchers suggest of the impact on this year’s midterm elections.

The problem within Biden’s plan is that Democrats have gone so radical to drive off many Hispanics

Even left-wing sources like MSN have started reporting the exodus of Hispanics from the Democrat camp.

Just in time for National Hispanic Heritage Month, the Texas Tribune headed to heavily Hispanic South Texas to ask a question on many political minds this year. At a time when Democrats and the media are going to great lengths (even at the expense of their credibility) to convince the public that Republicans are an existential threat to the country, Hispanic voters are rapidly becoming Republicans.

Not only are the voters electing Republicans to local offices and participating in this year’s Republican primaries in unprecedented numbers, but local Democratic officials are also changing parties or sending strong signals that they intend to change parties after the coming election.

Why is this happening? In South Texas, part of it has to do with the border. Recent polling indicates that 57% of Texas Hispanics and 60% of South Texas Hispanics want to see tougher border enforcement. That’s because the small and medium-sized towns that line Texas’s border with Mexico are currently in a crisis caused entirely by the neglect of the Biden administration. President Joe Biden threw away years of serious diplomacy and essentially put up a “Welcome, the Border is Open” sign when he abandoned his predecessor’s “Remain in Mexico” policy for asylum-seekers. The consequences have been devastating.

With the South Texas region being overrun by illegal border crossers, Hispanic Americans living there have learned precisely the same lessons about the Democratic Party that so many other white working-class voters learned over the past 10 years — Democrats are extremely arrogant, blinded by ideology, lacking in substance, and unwilling to listen to anyone, least of all people and groups whose votes they have long taken for granted.

In recent weeks, the mayors of Washington, D.C., and New York City have complained bitterly about Texas and Arizona providing free rides for Biden’s newly released migrants to their self-proclaimed “sanctuary cities.” The lesson for everyone living in the genuinely strained areas near the border is that Democrats’ stated desire to help immigrants is just about optics. They certainly care little or nothing for border-town Americans who are being made to suffer so that these narcissistic politicians can show off their kind-heartedness at others’ expense.

A few things that MSN doesn’t seem to recognize in the formerly Democrat enclave:

  • There remains a respect for work and the product of work
  • We don’t want what is ours taken by lawbreakers
  • Skin color does not unite in the face of violence
  • Crime increases when Democrat judges release violent criminals on bail reform
  • There remains respect for machismo (which extends to strong leaders — not doddering old fools or word-salad Annies)

Joe Biden’s allies tell him to fly Venezuelan migrants directly to U.S. jobs

Breitbart points out one embarrassing, job-killing fact for inflation-creator Biden: his confidants want him to rob Americans of jobs by sending illegals to those jobs.

President Joe Biden is being pushed to help many Venezuelan economic migrants fly legally into Americans’ workplaces and homes, says the Wall Street Journal.

The proposed policy would pull the migrants through U.S. airports via the “parole” side door, which was created by Congress for a very small number of individuals each year.

The expanded legal inflow would add to the flood of southern illegal migration that is cutting  Americans’ wages, spiking housing costs, and boosting inflation.

The Wall Street Journal reported on October 11:

If enacted, the [Venezualan] program would be modeled after Uniting for Ukraine, created in the wake of the war, that has allowed some 67,000 Ukrainians to move to the U.S. through a status known as humanitarian parole, which allows them to live and work here for two years. Any Ukrainians looking to come must find a U.S. sponsor willing to support their applications, and processing of their requests has been taking as little as a couple of weeks.

Joe, just because you enacted one hair-brained program does not warrant a second

Flying people who originate within spitting distance of Turkey and Azerbaijan into the heartland of America does not qualify as a smart move. That is, it does not count as a great idea unless you are attempting to bring on another attack on America.

Doing the same with people from a socialist state that hates America qualifies as an equally stupid move.

Joe Biden offers a border giveaway to stop Venezuela’s migrant flood

Breitbart again reports on the less-than-genius move of the Biden regime as it offers Venezuelan illegal aliens a special deal.

President Joe Biden is offering a huge giveaway of citizenship to at least 24,000 Venezuelans in the hope of deterring the rising flood of  illegal migrants.

The plan offers the huge prize of legal status, work permits, and eventually, citizenship, to 24,000 Venezuelans who apply at U.S. embassies instead of migrating up to the U.S. border.

The colossal giveaway is paired with a threat of Title 42 expulsion back to Mexico for the Venezuelan migrants who walk across the mostly open U.S. border in search of jobs and a U.S. residency.

The policy was announced Wednesday afternoon.

The announcement comes three weeks before the mid-term election and 21 months after Biden triggered — and welcomed — a cross-border flood of roughly 200,000 Venezuelan illegal migrants into Americans’ workplaces, homes, and society.

“Those who follow the lawful process will have the opportunity to travel safely to the United States and become eligible to work here,” said a statement by Alejandro Mayorkas, Biden’s pro-migration, Cuban-born head of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The statement said:

Venezuelans approved via this process will be authorized on a case-by-case basis to travel to the United States by air directly to an interior port of entry, thus relieving pressure at the border. Once in the United States, they will be eligible to apply for work authorization.

Venezuelans who travel by land, however, supposedly will be blocked by the Title 42 border protections that Biden’s deputies sought to cancel earlier this year. The DHS statement continued:

Effective immediately, Venezuelans who enter the United States between ports of entry, without authorization, will be returned to Mexico.

The two-sided plan will only be implemented if Mexico helps to block Venezuelan migrants, the statement said:

 The United States will not implement this process without Mexico keeping in place its independent but parallel effort to accept the return of Venezuelan nationals who bypass this process and attempt to enter irregularly.

The statement did not reveal the quid-pro-quo deal for Mexico’s agreement to take over the task of protecting U.S. workers from cheap, imported, illegal labor.

Do you ever get the idea that the world is on an old airing of Let’s Make A Deal?

Does it ever seem that Joe Biden has his best Monty Hall smile on? Does it seem that the world is dressed in stupid costumes and yelling to get the attention of Monty and the cameraman? Do you expect someone to announce “And let’s see what’s behind door number 2” any moment now?

Joe’s first problem is that this is not a game. In other words, this stands as a problem of magnitude. Unlike the thousands shipped from Texas, Arizona, and Florida — these are hundreds of thousands and (over the months) millions.

Joe’s second problem issues from the fact that he opened the floodgates. Now he finds that, with the flow going as it is, closing those gates has become impossible for even a strong man. And strong does not describe Joe.

Billionaires demand fast-track amnesty after DACA decision

Breitbart once more reports on how the powerful demand to exploit the weak after an inconsistent DACA decision get handed down.

Investor advocates and White House officials are lamenting the latest legal defeat of President Barack Obama’s 2012 DACA amnesty, and are calling on Congress to pass a formal amnesty by Christmas.

“Congress absolutely has to act this year,” claimed Todd Schulte, head of the FWD.us lobby group for wealthy West Coast investors, after the federal court announced the decision on October 5.

“Our businesses will lose critical employees,” said a press statement from a business coalition organized by Schulte’s billionaires. “We once again urge Congress to swiftly pass legislation this year that will help Dreamers, American businesses, and our country,” said the Coalition for the American Dream.

“It is long past time for Congress to provide Dreamers [DACA illegals] with the ability to live and work … they’re valued employees at the businesses where they work,” said a statement from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

The FWD.us investor group backs migration because it boosts their businesses with more wage-cutting workers, more consumers, and more renters. The founders include Bill Gates, Eric Schmidt, and Mark and Priscilla Zuckerberg. It was created in 2013 to help pass the 2013 “Gang of Eight” cheap labor and amnesty bill.

“There is a *lot* of confusion but this is a big step forward to the courts terminating DACA,” Schulte said in an October 5 tweet.

“Judges are saying it’s dead but trying to hide it to play Biden admin & Dems for a bit,” he said in another tweet.

Schulte and other pro-migration advocates hoped to gain from a political backlash if the court fast-tracked the end of DACA before the midterm elections.

“That Federal judges who are throwing the lives of nearly 700k DACA recipients and another 1.5M family members in their households into chaos don’t understand basics on the law is VERY troubling,” he tweeted on October 5.

Gates surely seeks programmers from India and janitors from wherever else

There is a reason that the birth tourism industry flourishes in America. Why else would middle- to high-class Chinese, Indians, and many other nationalities send their women over to American hotels during the last months of their pregnancies and book the services of American hospitals?

In lieu of these people who were given a legal means of coming to America, the rich Democrats want to stuff lower-level American jobs with DACA amnesty recipients. Heck they just want to open the border without regard to the consequences.

I wonder if they feel the same about the borders of their personal property.

Illegals flagged as potential national security risks soared nearly 600% in 2022

The Daily Caller points out that 25,627 illegal aliens (all determined to be “special interest migrants” by the Biden regime and, therefore, a national security risk) came across our Southern border. From that mass of “special interest migrants,” just over 6 in 10 came out of Turkey (where ISIS and other foreign terrorist organizations operate).

Border Patrol saw an almost 600% increase in fiscal year 2022 in the number of illegal migrants flagged as “special interest” over national security concerns, according to internal U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data exclusively obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation.

A “special interest” migrant is someone who isn’t a U.S. citizen who frequently travels in areas designated as national security concerns due to terrorist activity or other types of “nefarious activity,” according to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Border Patrol agents encountered 25,627 “special interest” illegal migrants compared to the 3,675 encounters in fiscal year 2021, according to the data.

“Special interest aliens” can include individuals who “possibly have a nexus to terrorism,” according to 2019 DHS fact sheet. The newly-obtained internal data refers to these individuals as “special interest migrants,” however.

Most of the encounters were recorded at the southern border, with the highest in El Paso, Texas, according to the data.

“When you have an open border, you don’t get to control who or what enters your home,” former Border Patrol Chief Rodney Scott told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “There are significant real threats coming across the border.”

“Unfortunately, all the current administration wants to focus on as an economic migrants and trying to say that they have a kinder, gentler migration policy, but they’re putting the entire Nation at Risk, as well as the millions of migrants that are handed to the cartels to be trafficked across the border,” Scott said.

CBP officials encountered over 2,000,000 migrants at the southern border between October 2021 and August 2022, a record number. Of those, CBP encountered 78 individuals on the terror watchlist.

Joe Biden, our first special ed commander in chief, spoke to the Volvo manufacturing plant in Hagerstown, Maryland

As revealed by our friends across the pond at the Daily Mail, Joe Biden recently bumbled again while speaking at the Volvo plant in Hagerstown, Maryland.

President Joe Biden forgot to fact-check the first line of his speech at a Maryland manufacturing facility Friday. 

‘Let me start off with two words: made in America,’ Biden intoned at an event at the Volvo Group Powertrain facility in Hagerstown.

All he forgot to do was count the number of words in the mantra.

‘Made in America. It’s not hyperbole. I’m not joking about that, as you know,’ Biden continued.

If this is the Democrat standard for two words, here are some two-word sets for Biden

The Las Vegas stabbing spree suspect has been in the US illegally and has criminal record

The New York Post reports that the illegal alien who fatally stabbed two and wounded six is a Guatemalan national with a criminal record in California.

The man charged with fatally stabbing two people and wounding six others during a crazed rampage on the Las Vegas strip was in the United States illegally and has a criminal record, according to a report.

The 32-year-old alleged attacker, Yoni Barrios, is a Guatemalan national with a criminal record in California, a source with US Immigration and Customs Enforcement confirmed to Fox News

Barrios was charged with two counts of open murder with a deadly weapon and six counts of attempted murder in the senseless broad-daylight attack.

The deadly stabbing spree began 11:42 a.m. local time on Thursday on South Las Vegas Boulevard, near two major casinos — the Wynn Las Vegas and the Resorts World Casino.

Barrios had asked a group of women dressed as showgirls to take a picture of him with a knife. When they declined, he began his alleged deadly stabbing frenzy. Maris Digionvanni, 30, was killed in the attack, the girls’ boss told The Post.

The suspect told police that he “thought the women were laughing at him and making fun of his clothing,” according to a police report obtained by KKTV.

He then fled and allegedly killed 47-year-old Brent Allan Hallet, with what police described as a “large knife with a long blade.” He was followed by concerned witnesses who called 911.

Among those who were injured, one victim underwent surgery and remains in critical condition. Two victims are in serious condition while the remaining three are reported to be in fair condition, KKTV reported.

This is on Joe and all of the soft-on-the-border politicians

This is on every sanctuary city and sanctuary county that does not cooperate with ICE. This is on Gavin Newsom.

Moreover, this is on the politicians that support the open border.

This is on Beto O’Rourke (never a Latino) and every pro-open borders Democrat (like lying Lina Hidalgo).

This is on Biden and whoever is pulling his strings.

 

Things Democrats could do with hot topics this week, but will not


They could be consistent with their years of preaching and provide shelter, food, and other necessities to illegal aliens

Mayor Adams suggested New York City should “reassess” right-to-shelter access amid illegal alien busing crisis

The New York Daily News opens up on how their Mayor Adams has suggested New York City should “reassess” right-to-shelter access amid illegal alien crisis.

A massive influx of Latin American migrants in recent months has driven the city’s shelter system so close to collapse that Mayor Adams suggested Wednesday it’s warranted to reassess local homeless policies — including a long-standing law that assures the right to shelter for New York’s neediest.

The mayor floated the extraordinary proposal in a statement that also admitted his administration failed to provide shelter beds for roughly 60 homeless men on Monday night, forcing them to sleep on floors and benches at a Manhattan intake center. He said that was a result of the shelter system being overburdened by the arrival of more than 11,000 South and Central American migrants since May.

“The city’s system is nearing its breaking point. As a result, the city’s prior practices, which never contemplated the bussing of thousands of people into New York City, must be reassessed,” Adams said.

Though Adams’ statement didn’t explicitly mention the so-called “right-to-shelter” law, it’s the primary legal mechanism underpinning the city’s homeless policies.

But in a head-scratching twist, Adams spokesman Fabien Levy disputed the idea that the mayor was solely referring to the right-to-shelter law in calling for a reassessment of “prior practices.”

“We must reassess the entire situation,” Levy said. He would not say what rules besides right-to-shelter could fall within the scope of the mayor’s proposed reassessment.

Under the law, the city must provide a bed in a homeless shelter to anyone in need of one, regardless of immigration status or other circumstances. That has been the case since 1981, when the city entered a consent decree that established the right-to-shelter requirement. It’s unclear whether Adams would have authority to reassess right-to-shelter protocols, as the law is protected under the state constitution.

Advocacy groups, the Legal Aid Society and the Coalition for the Homeless, said Tuesday that Adams’ administration violated the right-to-shelter law when it didn’t provide beds for the approximately 60 men who were stuck at the intake center at 30th Street and First Avenue.

“Massive influx” in New York? As mentioned in other posts, New York has not seen 1/10th of one month of what Texas alone gets in a sector.

Over the past few months of complaining by the New York/Chicago/DC mayors, these “sanctuary cities” have only received 1/10th of the number of illegal aliens that came into one sector of Texas during one month.

Therefore, they’re not progressive, they’re pretenders. They’re not sanctuaries. They’re slaughterhouses of the souls.

Yellen says gas prices may spike again this winter as Europe cuts off Russian oil

Forbes quotes another doddering member of the Biden regime as she lays out the obvious but does not explain the simple things America could do to alleviate the problem.

Gas prices could jump again this winter following a monthslong decline in the United States, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen warned Sunday, as the European Union plans to largely stop buying Russian oil in December as a gesture of disapproval of the war in Ukraine.

The EU hopes to cut off Russian oil tanker shipments to Europe and ban companies from insuring Russian ships that carry oil to other regions like Asia, where Russian imports have increased, a plan that could risk “a spike in oil prices,” Yellen said during a Sunday appearance on CNN’s State of the Union.

Yellen called the threat of rising oil prices “a risk that we’re working on,” adding that a proposed cap on the sale price of Russian oil would help contain costs in the U.S., which have finally fallen after skyrocketing earlier this year.

The price cap would help slash the revenue that Russia earns from oil—which Yellen said the country uses to “fight this illegal war” in Ukraine—while still allowing Russian petroleum to enter the global oil market and “hold down” prices.

Yellen states the obvious about Russia and Europe, but not the blatantly obvious about America

Yes, the Russian oil will become more scarce due to the geopolitical issues. Oddly, it seems that the Biden regime solution is to knuckle under (which would be the real effect of a “price cap” that would likely be quickly circumvented).

However, why doesn’t she mention that American drilling has dropped to the lowest level since Truman. Why not start up American drilling and fire up those American jobs?

Inflation at 8.3% – the second drop in a row – but still sits near 40-year high

The Daily Mail reports on the inflation remaining at a near 40-year high that does not match the rosy picture painted by the Biden regime.

Inflation in the US dipped again in August to an 8.3 percent annual rate, thanks largely to falling gas prices, but remained near a four-decade high even as President Joe Biden says he is making progress on the issue.

The Commerce Department’s latest consumer price index report on Tuesday represented a drop from the 40-year high of 9.1 percent recorded in June and 8.5 percent in July — but the latest numbers were hotter than expected, and Wall Street dropped sharply in reaction. 

The Dow dropped more than 1,000 points on Tuesday afternoon and the S&P 500 sank 3.9 percent, while the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite lost 4.7 percent.

Of course, why should we expect inflation solutions from the Biden regime? They are too busy eating cake.

Breitbart points out how the Biden regime went into cake-eating mode upon signing the misnamed Inflation Reduction Act.

The White House is planning a celebration of President Joe Biden’s “Inflation Reduction Act” on Tuesday, even as consumer prices rose again in August, according to the latest numbers from the federal government.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Consumer Price Index released Tuesday morning shows that inflation in August rose one-tenth of a percentage point from July and up 8.3 percent from the previous year.

Grocery prices continue rising fast, as prices rose 0.7 percent from July and 13.5 percent from the previous year. Restaurant prices are up 0.9 percent from July

The “Inflation Reduction Act” spends billions of dollars subsidizing green energy projects, subsidies for electric cars, and propping up government-subsidized health care.
But the cost of health insurance and energy keeps rising.

Stock futures fall after inflation data is higher than expected

The Wall Street Journal outlines the reaction of the markets stronger-than-expected inflation appearing again on the Biden scene.

Stocks suffered their worst day in more than two years after hotter-than-expected inflation data dashed investors’ hopes that cooling price pressures would prompt the Federal Reserve to moderate its campaign of interest-rate increases.

Investors sold everything from stocks and bonds to oil and gold. All 30 stocks in the Dow Jones Industrial Average declined, as did all 11 sectors in the S&P 500. Only five stocks in the broad benchmark finished the session in the green. Facebook parent Meta Platforms dropped 9.4%, BlackRock declined 7.5% and Boeing fell 7.2%.

The Dow fell 1,276.37 points, or 3.9%, to 31104.97. The S&P 500 declined 177.72 points, or 4.3%, to 3932.69. The Nasdaq Composite slid 632.84 points, or 5.2%, to 11633.57.

All three indexes posted their steepest one-day losses since June 11, 2020. The declines left the Dow industrials down 14% in 2022, while the S&P 500 has lost 17% and Nasdaq Composite has retreated 26%.

Investors had eagerly anticipated Tuesday’s release of the consumer-price index, which provided a last major look at inflation before the central bank’s interest-rate-setting committee meets next week. Expectations for the path of monetary policy have held sway over the markets as investors factor higher rates into asset prices and try to project how well the economy will hold up as rates rise.

“It increases the probability of recession if the Fed has to move more significantly to address inflation,” said Chris Shipley, chief investment strategist for North America at Northern Trust Asset Management.

The new data showed the consumer-price index rose 8.3% in August from the same month a year ago. That was down from 8.5% in July and 9.1% in June—the highest inflation rate in four decades.

But on a month-to-month basis, the figures showed inflation accelerating in August, dashing investors’ hopes that price pressures would weaken, allowing the Federal Reserve to slow its pace of interest rate increases in the coming months.

Three stories that point toward possibly encouraging trends among Republicans


GOP eyes the use of a 146-year-old rule to punish Democrats who refuse to testify

The Western Journal reports on a tool that one team of Republicans has proposed using against Democrats who refuse to testify before a Republican committee (as happened several times during the Obama regime).

GOP Rep. Andy Biggs of Arizona is floating the idea of using the Holman rule, dating back to 1876, to force Biden administration officials to comply with congressional oversight if Republicans retake control of the House and the Senate in the November midterm elections.

Just the News reported Saturday, “The arcane rule had fallen out of sight for decades, but in 2017 House Republicans revived it to allow any federal bureaucrat’s salary to be cut to $1 in an effort to force spending cuts on agencies or programs unwilling to reduce spending.”

Biggs — a member of the House Judiciary and Oversight and Reform committees — believes it could be applied to reduce the pay of government officials who don’t comply with congressional subpoenas.

(continued)

Republicans ran into this problem during the Obama administration with their Fast and Furious investigation as well as the one into former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner for her unit’s targeting of conservative groups.

In 2012, the House voted to hold then-Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt for the DOJ’s failure to turn over documents related to Fast and Furious, the botched Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives gun-running operation into Mexico.

In 2014, the House also held Lerner in contempt for not complying with its investigation into her unit.

Both Holder and Lerner were referred to the DOJ for criminal contempt, but the agency in both instances did not press charges.

The refusal to act on referrals from Republican lawmakers stands in contrast to the agency charging former Trump administration officials Steve Bannon, who was convicted this summer, and Peter Navarro for failing to comply with subpoenas from the Democrats’ highly partisan House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol incursion.

So if Republicans retake the House in November, they likely will run into an uncooperative DOJ, as they did during the Obama years.

“I anticipate further obstruction on the part of Merrick Garland,” Biggs said. “But we may have to find a way, to devise a way to go around Merrick Garland to get these people to come in. And that’s why I think [what] we need to do first and foremost is reinstate the Holman rule, so that we get to hold people like Merrick Garland responsible.”

“And that Holman rule allows the Congress to basically defund an individual bureaucrat, who is willfully … violating the subpoena power and oversight power of the United States Congress,” he said.

One thing that might make this tactic better would be to hold this card close to the vest

We know that the Congress holds the purse strings of the government. That stands without question.

Therefore, if the Republicans in question were to play this as a surprise tactic, they might be able to apply more pressure to the person at the focus of the investigation.

That is to say, if the person did not have the opportunity to fund raise, to gather support from his or her colleagues, or otherwise prepare — the reduction of pay from hundreds of thousands of dollars to a dollar might have more effect. Nonetheless, if they can just agree to use this tactic, it will be a start.

Republican Attorneys General sue the Biden regime to force the release of emails between the social media giants and Biden regime members

Fox News points out how a group of state Attorneys General have sued the Biden regime to force the disclosure of how the Biden regime uses social media to censor.

A federal judge in Louisiana ruled Tuesday that the Biden administration has 21 days to turn over all relevant emails sent by White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre and Dr. Anthony Fauci to social media platforms regarding alleged misinformation and the censorship of social media content. 

The decision by Judge Terry Doughty, who was appointed by former President Donald Trump, came as part of a lawsuit filed in May by Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry, accusing the Biden administration of suppressing the constitutionally protected right to free speech on elections, the COVID-19 lab leak theory, coronavirus-related lockdowns and other issues. 

The Justice Department objected to the handing over of the email correspondence under executive privilege and presidential communications privilege, but Doughty decided, “This Court believes Plaintiffs are entitled to external communications by Jean-Pierre and Dr. Fauci in their capacities as White House Press Secretary and Chief Medical Advisor to the President to third-party social media platforms.” 

Schmitt, who is running for U.S. Senate in Missouri, announced the development regarding his lawsuit on Twitter.

In their initial filing, he and Landry argued that “having threatened and cajoled social-media platforms for years to censor viewpoints and speakers disfavored by the Left, senior government officials in the Executive Branch have moved into a phase of open collusion with social-media platforms under the Orwellian guise of halting so-called ‘disinformation,’ ‘misinformation’ and ‘malinformation.'”

“As a result of these actions, there has been an unprecedented rise of censorship and suppression of free speech — including core political speech — on social media platforms,” the lawsuit says. “Not just fringe views, but perfectly legitimate, responsible viewpoints and speakers have been unlawfully and unconstitutionally threatened in the modern public square.”

Abbott needs to keep up the pressure as Bowser declares a public emergency over the 1/10th of a Texas one-month illegal-alien allotment gets spread between her city, New York, and Chicago

The Daily Mail shows how liberals who claim to provide “sanctuary cities” have just been blowing hot air now that they get a fraction of the flow of illegal immigrants that Biden has dropped into Texas.

Washington D.C. is now in a state of emergency after Texas and Arizona sent thousands of migrants from their states to the nation’s capital – and Mayor Muriel Bowser announced $10 to create a new office dealing with this crisis.

A Democratic council member accused Governors Greg Abbott of Texas and Doug Ducey of Arizona during a press conference Thursday of creating the crisis and insisted District of Columbia should now be considered a ‘border town.’

Her claims come after years of Republicans claiming that all towns in America are border towns because the migration crisis – coupled with drug trafficking – is spilling over and affecting communities across the nation.

Bowser said she would demand the federal government reimburse the D.C. local government for the $10 million cost of setting up an office supporting organizations working to provide migrants with meals, accommodations and healthcare.

The D.C. Democratic mayor announced a public state of emergency for her city during a press conference Thursday.

Abbott’s office slammed Bowser for ‘hypocrisy’ and said she was being dramatic by declaring an emergency when the amount of migrants sent there from Texas amounts to approximately 1 percent of her city’s population.

Bowser previously insisted that the National Guard be activated to assist D.C. authorities with the migration crisis plaguing the city and filling up homeless shelters. Bowser was twice denied those pleas.

Abbott, a Republican, launched the initiative busing migrants to D.C. in mid-April before expanding the reach to New York City in August and in September started sending buses to Chicago.

The goal in sending migrants to so-called sanctuary cities, Abbott said, was to help curb the crisis at border communities in the Lone Star State, as well as bring the crisis to the front steps of lawmakers and other ‘elites’ who make decisions that affect border states.

So far, approximately 9,400 migrants have been bussed from Texas and Arizona to D.C. over the last nearly five months, according to Bowser’s office – this is less than .01 percent the amount of migrants who cross the southern border in that same time period.

‘Mayor Bowser is an absolute hypocrite,’ Abbott spokeswoman Renae Eze told DailyMail.com.

‘In a city with a population over 700,000, she’s claiming an emergency for just over 7,900 migrants being bused into her sanctuary city,’ she added. ‘That’s barely 1% of the population of Washington, D.C.’

‘The true emergency,’ Eze insisted, ‘is on our nation’s southern border—not in our nation’s capital—where small Texas border towns are overrun and overwhelmed by hundreds of migrants every single day as the Biden Administration dumps them in their communities.’

D.C., New York, and Chicago only get a fraction of what has flooded tiny border towns

Fox News reports how the small busloads arriving at D.C. do not stand up to the masses arriving in small Texas towns.

Just over 1,000 migrants have been bused so far to New York City, in addition to over 7,000 that have been sent voluntarily to Washington D.C. While the numbers are just a fraction of the hundreds of thousands of migrants that hit the border each month, Democratic officials in both states have declared themselves overwhelmed and called for federal aid.

Biden immigration issues in the headlines as midterms loom


Biden reverses course and commits to closing certain gaps in border wall

The Daily Wire points to the sudden reversal in border policy which seems to be driven by concern over illegals and not the plight of Americans.

Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration will fill gaps in certain areas of former President Donald Trump’s border wall on the U.S. southern border as the illegal immigration crisis hits Washington, D.C., following a decision by Republican governors to transport thousands of illegal aliens to the nation’s capital.

The Associated Press noted that Biden “pledged during his campaign to cease all future wall construction,” but that his administration has now agreed to some additional barriers.

Controversial Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas authorized the project that will close four massive gaps in the border wall near Yuma, Arizona, which has been decimated by Biden’s border crisis.

The report suggested that part of the reason that Biden might have made closing those specific gaps a “priority” is because vulnerable Sen. Mark Kelly (D-AZ) is up for re-election and the current political winds could make it very difficult for him to hold onto his seat.

The development comes after Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott effectively told Washington, D.C., Democrat Mayor Muriel Bowser to pound sand Thursday afternoon after she complained that the border state was flooding her city with illegal aliens.

So, when it comes to the group most known for their short chants, Biden chooses a multi-step solution to a problem (for once)

When dealing with a group of socialists who seem to relate to the public through attacks of the public, Biden has chosen to protect the illegal aliens by closing the gaps in the wall. This won’t necessarily deter the illegals from entering, but will direct them away from the steep cliffs and deep rivers that they have crossed.

Still, for Americans, he does nothing. 

An injured migrant was rescued in the Arizona border mountains after he was abandoned by smugglers

Breitbart explains how an injured illegal alien was rescued in the Arizona border mountains after being abandoned by smugglers.

Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents rescued a migrant with a leg injury. Human smugglers abandoned the migrant after his injury.

Tucson Sector Chief Patrol Agent John R. Modlin tweeted an image of a migrant with a severe leg injury being rescued by Border Patrol agents. The agents found the migrant after human smugglers left him to die following his leg injury.

The agents provided medical aid to the migrant and loaded him into a basked for transportation to a local hospital.

“Migrants face many dangers while crossing the border illegally. This includes being abandoned by the smuggler if they suffer an injury,” Chief Modlin warned.

Last month, agents carried out a similar rescue following a report of a migrant with a leg injury. Agents from the Brian A. Terry Border Patrol Station in southeast Arizona provided assistance to the Mexican national and transported the person to an awaiting helicopter crew, Breitbart Texas reported.

We hear of the 53 who died in a hot semi trailer, but we don’t hear of over 14,000 who were rescued

Joe Biden has time to tell us that the border agents who rode horses while stopping illegal aliens “will pay,” but he doesn’t acknowledge the over 14,000 illegals rescued by border agents.

Does he have selective attention?

Seventy-three illegal aliens found in homes operated in affluent areas of Washington, D.C.

The Daily Wire lays out how 73 illegal aliens were found in a stash house operated in an affluent Washington, D.C. neighborhood.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents found 73 illegal immigrants in homes believed to be operated by human smugglers in an affluent area of Washington D.C.

Sixty adults and 13 children were found living across six residential homes in D.C.’s northwest area, where the median home price is $750,000, NBC News reported. The news outlet reviewed internal documents from ICE, which didn’t list the addresses of the homes where the people were kept or how many were housed in a single home.

Illegal immigrants are regularly brought into the U.S. by human smugglers, who often charge thousands of dollars and are tied to drug cartels. These smugglers keep the immigrants hidden in places known as “stash houses,” NBC reported, usually in poor conditions without beds, running water, or air conditioning. The outlet noted that these homes aren’t usually so far from the U.S.-Mexico border.

Maybe they thought the distance from the border would shield them

Or maybe they thought that the stash house was close to where Biden was taking them, anyway.

Jean-Pierre felt differently when it was Trump building walls at the border

Townhall comments on how the opinion of current White House Press Secretary Jean-Pierre changed her opinion on the building of the wall.

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre defended the Biden administration’s decision to fill in some gaps in the border wall system in the Yuma Sector amid the historic crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border, but she said it was racist to build a border wall when Donald Trump was president.

Going as far back as 2016 and as recently as 2019, Jean-Pierre repeatedly decried Trump’s plan to build a wall along the southern border.

Odd how her opinion of building a wall seems to turn on a dime

It is exceptionally odd how her opinion of building a wall has turned on a dime, considering how Biden has done everything to shrink a dime into nothingness. What, pray-tell, can you buy for a dime? Can you get the old penny candy for a dime?

Being a sanctuary city isn’t all it’s cracked up to be

The Washington Examiner looks into Mayor Bowser’s request to have the National Guard pulled into Washington, D.C. to manage the illegal aliens bussed their due to Biden’s flooding the border.

Liberal sanctuary cities aren’t feeling so tolerant and accepting anymore as the influx of migrants being bused from Texas and Arizona are bringing the border crisis to their doors.

Washington D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser has requested the district’s National Guard to help handle the crisis. Just 4,000 migrants have caused a “humanitarian crisis” and pushed the city to its “tipping point.” It took just 2,800 migrants for New York City Mayor Eric Adams to complain that the city’s resources were being strained. While border towns in Texas and Arizona are watching millions of migrants cross the border, big liberal cities are being brought to their knees by just a few thousand.

But isn’t this exactly what these cities and their Democratic mayors have asked for? Adams lashed out at the “callousness” of Texas and Arizona for sending migrants to the Big Apple, but Adams has proudly supported New York’s sanctuary status. He seems very upset that migrants are willingly boarding buses to go to his sanctuary city. Are they no longer welcome there?

When liberalism costs nothing, liberalism is easy

Today it seems liberalism amounts to nothing but words. However, at the beginning of our nation, the liberal thought of supporting free speech, freedom of the press, and freedom of religion for all could have dire consequences. Some hung for it. Many others took bullets for it.

Too bad today’s liberals cannot see we seem to have come full circle.

Migrant arrivals in DC amp up pressure on Biden over border enforcement

The Washington Examiner points out how the illegal alien invasion of the nation’s capitol has brought more pressure on Biden to enforce the border.

A steady flow of migrants arriving by bus in Washington, D.C., is dialing up pressure on the Biden administration over its handling of southern border enforcement and the effect it is having on the nation.

Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser (D) has called for the National Guard as it became clear that volunteer-led efforts to assist the migrants would be insufficient. More than 4,000 immigrants have arrived in Washington on more than 200 buses since April, and Bowser predicted the pace would quicken before calling for federal help.

“Tragically, many families arrive in Washington, DC with nowhere to go, or they remain in limbo seeking onward destinations across the United States,” Bowser wrote in her request. “With pledges from Texas and Arizona to continue these abhorrent operations indefinitely, the situation is dire, and we consider this a humanitarian crisis — one that could overwhelm our social support network without immediate and sustained federal intervention.”

Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) and Gov. Doug Ducey (R-AZ) have been sending busloads of immigrants who volunteered for the journey into the nation’s capital for four months, seeking to familiarize Washington’s politicians and journalists with the impact of illegal migration and protesting the end of Title 42.

The number of Border Patrol encounters with illegal border crossers rose from 646,822 in fiscal year 2020 to 1,956,519 in 2021 and to 2,002,604 so far in 2022. The Biden administration has allowed at least 1.25 million to remain in the country.

Despite the rising numbers, the White House initially dismissed the busing program as a political ploy that would not take hold.

“I think it’s pretty clear this is a publicity stunt. [Abbott’s] own office admits that a migrant would need to voluntarily be transported and that he can’t compel them to,” then-White House press secretary Jen Psaki said on April 7. “Because again, enforcement of our country’s immigration laws lies with the federal government, not a state. … The governor of Texas or any state does not have the legal authority to compel anyone to get on a bus.”

But thousands of volunteers have done just that in the weeks since, with most arriving at Union Station, in view of the Capitol dome. Psaki’s replacement, Karine Jean-Pierre, said Thursday that Ducey and Abbott are “using” the migrants as a “political tool.” A reporter pressed the issue, asking whether the White House would prefer for migrants to stay in small towns in Texas and Arizona rather than come to big cities.

“That is not what I said,” she responded. “They said that they’re sending migrants to big cities on purpose, using them as a political point. I’m saying that what Republicans are doing is wrong and there is a process in place, and we should follow the process.”

Hopefully, conservatives will not ease up on the pressure

Now that some liberals have started to see the light, I hope that our conservative leaders will not declare a premature victory and ease up on the pressure.

Biden says the quiet part by admitting that handing out ID’s incentivizes illegal aliens to break our laws

Townhall discusses how the Biden admission that handing identification cards to illegal aliens will incentivize illegal aliens to break our law.

Republicans are sounding the alarm over President Joe Biden’s confirmed plans to give illegal migrants identification cards. 

The plan, which is being developed by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), would allow illegals to have government issued ID’s in an effort to modernize paperwork. 

“Currently, noncitizens receive paper documents from the federal government about their immigration status. Paper documents pose a security risk, are easily lost, and degrade rapidly in real-world use, creating inefficiencies for the government and noncitizens. Moving to a secure card will save the agency millions, free up resources, and ensure information is quickly accessible to DHS officials while reducing the agency’s FOIA backlog,” a spokesperson told the Epoch Times. 

The cards will have a photograph, biographic identifiers and “cutting-edge security features to the mutual benefit of the government and noncitizens,” according to ICE.

However, several Republicans are voicing their concerns over the possibility, including the security and cost implications of the plan. 

letter from 16 Republicans addressed to the acting ICE Director details how they believe this is yet just another attempt to further allow illegal immigration into the U.S. 

(Read more at Townhall for details on the letter)

This admission needs to be preserved for an ad or ten million

This admission stands as an admission for all Democrats, since they all seem to be in on this. Therefore, this admission needs to go into the advertisements that bring down each and every Democrat currently in office.

An illegal alien drives 85 illegals to the Texas border to pay his own smuggling fee

Breitbart lays out the insane situation where an illegal alien smuggled 85 illegals to the Texas border in order to pay his own smuggling fee.

An illegal alien from Mexico pleaded guilty to trying to drive a tractor-trailer carrying 85 migrants through a Border Patrol checkpoint in Texas. The individuals inside suffered from suffocatingly high temperatures. The smuggling attempt came weeks before 53 migrants died in another trailer.

Recently, Jose Luis Vega Arzate, 31, went before U.S. Magistrate Judge Marina Garcia Marmolejo in Laredo where he pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to transport illegal aliens. Vega Arzate is from Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, and was in the country illegally at the time of his arrest. The man told authorities that he was driving as a way to pay off his own smuggling fees.

The case began on May 10, when Vega Arzate drove a tractor-trailer with 85 migrants hidden inside to a Border Patrol checkpoint just north of Laredo, court documents revealed.

During their initial inspection agents noticed that Vega Arzate spoke in broken English, was sweating, and appeared nervous. The agents told him to move to a secondary area where they would scan the vehicle with an X-ray device, however, Vega Arzate had trouble shifting the truck’s gears to comply.

Authorities used a police dog who signaled to the trailer. Agents apprehended 85 migrants and provided first aid.

If this driver is being charged in the deaths of the 53 who died near San Antonio in a sweltering trailer, why wasn’t he held in jail the way Kyle Rittenhouse was held?

When Kyle Rittenhouse defended himself against a known pedophile who started beating him with a steel-wheeled skateboard and a felon with a handgun, he was kept in jail for 87 days before his lawyers finally were able to arrange bail (and, naturally, he was released once acquitted).

So why, please tell me, has a non-citizen offender become a super-citizen who gets released although charged in the deaths of 53? Why does a boy who was cleaning graffiti from schools, protecting a business from rioters, and protecting himself from attack get jailed and charged?

 

Illegal aliens in the news


Has the President of Mexico admitted his knowledge of illegal alien Mexicans in America by issuing this order?

Is this international election interference?

The New York Post quoted Mexico’s President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador to say (emphasis through bolding is mine):

If there’s a candidate from a party that mistreats immigrants and Mexicans, we’re going to ask our countrymen there that they don’t vote for that candidate or party,

Additionally, the New York Post speculates on the situation:

Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador’s comments come one day after Republican Gov. Greg Abbott issued an executive order to the state’s National Guard and Department of Public Safety to detain migrants and send them back across the border, accusing President Biden of refusing to do his job.

So, will Mexico’s sleeper cells come to the rescue of Fake-LatinX Beto or common sense prevail?

Will Texas Hispanics continue to elect politicians who reflect their conservative, pro-Catholic positions as they did with the election of Myra Flores or will they start following the advice of a corrupt Mexican leader like Obrador?

Don’t hold your breath if you are hoping to breathe life into the Democrat machine.

Illegal alien was sought in a Philadelphia murder and two Boston stabbings before being found in a multi-state search

The Daily Wire takes us through the story of the capture of Wagner Tejeda-Pena after his multi-state crime spree

An illegal alien suspected of a murder and unrelated stabbings in the northeast was arraigned Friday in West Roxbury, Massachusetts following his arrest on Thursday.

Wagner Tejeda-Pena, 24, appeared in municipal court Friday afternoon on two counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon in connection to two stabbings in a Boston neighborhood in February, reported the Boston Herald. He is also facing charges of being a fugitive out of Philadelphia, and a murder charge from June. After he fled Philadelphia, multiple warrants were placed for his arrest, and a multi-state search led the to arrest in Lawrence, Massachusetts.

“We got some information from a resident, a confidential tip that they may have possibly seen this individual,” Lawrence Police Chief Roy Vasque told an NBC affiliate after Tejeda-Pena was taken into custody.

Critics have argued that Kenney’s own policies as well as Philadelphia’s District Attorney Larry Krasner’s soft-on-crime approach have caused the uptick in Philadelphia violence in recent years. In 2021, there was a record 562 homicides in the city. There have been 292 murders so far in 2022 in Philadelphia.

Kenney has also welcomed illegal aliens flouting federal law to find safe harbor in Philadelphia.

In 2018, Kenney celebrated that The City of Brotherly Love was a sanctuary city after a federal judge ruled that the city could not be prevented from certain federal funding because it declined to cooperate with ICE on certain matters relating to illegal aliens and suspected criminals.

“We are a sanctuary city!” an excited Kenney said while dancing around his office.

A staffer for the Mayor posted the video to social media, saying, “Needless to say, I think @janeslusser and @PhillyMayor are pretty excited about today’s ruling affirming Philadelphia as a Sanctuary City.” Jane Slusser was Kenney’s chief of staff at the time.

Illegal aliens may have been welcomed by Mayor Kenney, but they are still welcomed in by Biden

According to the Centers for Immigration Studies (as of June 2022), Biden has allowed 1.05 million illegal aliens from across the world to cross the Southwestern border since he was installed to office.

Any death or crime committed by an illegal alien (from child stabbed to Iranian dirty nuclear bomb detonated) must be tagged to Democrats and Joe Biden.

 

How many ways can Biden screw up the border?

“Defund the Cartels” — Representative Mayra Flores talks about the border crisis

Breitbart reports on how Representative Myra Flores lays out the poor track record of the Biden regime in regard to the border.

A newly-elected Texas Congresswoman is calling for the defunding of the Mexican cartels effectively in control of the U.S. southwestern border.

“We need to defund the cartels,” U.S. Congresswoman Mayra Flores said during an exclusive interview in Spanish with Breitbart News, where she talked about how criminal organizations from Mexico are the only ones benefiting from the current border crisis.

Flores made history in June when she became the first Mexican-born female to be elected to the House of Representatives. She flipped Texas Congressional District 34, which was historically a Democrat stronghold.

“Unfortunately, we have a border that is in control of criminal organizations,” Flores said, referring to the operational control along the border by the Gulf Cartel and the Cartel Del Noreste faction of Los Zetas. Currently, the Gulf Cartel operates one of the most active human and drug trafficking corridors in Flores’s district. “It is a sad reality, but no one can cross the border into this country without having to pay thousands of dollars to criminal organizations.”

The issue which has been largely ignored by most politicians in Washington and helped create a cycle of violence and abuse where women and children suffer unspeakable horrors at the hands of cartel-connected smugglers, she said.

In many cases, victims suffer sexual and physical abuse. In other instances, victims are kidnapped and held for ransom. “It is something that is happening that in reality, it embarrasses me that it is happening in this country because we are better than that,” Flores added.

(Read about the Flores solution to defunding the cartels at Breitbart)

Biden’s turning of the border over to the cartels must be reversed

Biden has enabled the cartels by opening up the southern border to unbridled illegal immigration and a mostly-unchecked flow of drugs across that same border. When Texas attempted to either ship illegals to the District of Columbia or jail those illegal aliens on crimes committed (destruction of property, theft, assault, and other charges), Merrick Garland’s Department of Justice sued Texas with charges that the civil rights of the illegal aliens have been violated by Texas through some form of discrimination.

Biden touts allowing a record number of foreign workers from Mexico

The Epoch Times outlines Biden’s bragging on how he allowed record numbers of foreign workers from Mexico.

President Joe Biden on Tuesday touted the “record” number of foreign workers his administration has allowed into the United States from Mexico, stating that the move has boosted job opportunities.

Biden made the comments during a press conference with Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador at the White House at a time when an unprecedented number of illegal aliens continue to try to make their way into the country.

Meanwhile, inflation stands at a 40-year-high in the United States and the number of employed Americans has declined.

The current unemployment rate stands at 3.6 percent, according to the Labor Department, marking the lowest since February 2020.

“My administration is leading the way to creating work opportunities through legal pathways,” Biden said on Tuesday. “And last year, my administration set a record. We issued more than 300,000 H-2 visas for Mexican workers.”

“We also reached a five-year high in the visas we issued to Central Americans, and we’re on pace to double this in fiscal year for—this fiscal year for Central America.”

According to an analysis by the Center for Immigration Studies of Bureau of Labor Statistics data for January 2021, unemployment among native-born Americans remained much higher than before the COVID-19 pandemic.

The number of unemployed American natives in January 2021 stood at 8.6 million, according to the analysis, while the number of unemployed immigrants was 2.2 million.

Separate data from the nonpartisan independent think tank, The Migration Policy Institute, finds that the unemployment rate was equal at 3.3 percent for both U.S.-born workers and immigrant workers as of April 2022.

More Jobs, Wages Rising

Another study by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) which looked at job figures from September 2020 to March 2022 noted that there are currently approximately 11.5 million job openings in the United States and 14.73 million employable Americans.

“This means that there are 3.23 million more workers in the country than open jobs,” according to FAIR.

Despite the latest data regarding unemployment, Biden on Tuesday stated that since he stepped into office, his administration has “created more jobs than any president ever has in the beginning of his administration—almost 8.5 million new jobs.”

So Biden wants to make it so that we not only pay inflated prices, but we cannot get a job?

It looks like Biden is trying to squeeze the normal American from the pricing end and the jobs end.

If this is Build Back Better, give me Ultra MAGA.

Joe Biden’s Deputies to Enable Abortions for Migrants Raped on Way to Texas

Breitbart tells us how the Biden regime has been enabling abortions of those who have been raped or sexually trafficked during their trip to America.

Present Joe Biden’s border officials have decided they will transport detained migrants who want abortions to U.S. states that allow abortions, according to the Wall Street Journal.

“Why are these [detained] women pregnant in the first place?” asked Rosemary Jenks, the policy director for NumbersUSA. “If they want abortions,] they could have been impregnated on their way here, probably by [members of the] cartels … that is probably a significant portion of the cases,” she told Breitbart News.

The Wall Street Journal reported on July 12 on the policy adopted by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency:

The memo is from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Acting Director Tae Johnson and is addressed to Corey Price, head of the agency’s enforcement division.

“This memorandum serves as a reminder of existing ICE policies and standards requiring that pregnant individuals detained in ICE immigration custody have access to full reproductive health care,” the memo states. “This is also a reminder that, pursuant to existing ICE policy, it may be necessary to transfer a detained pregnant individual within an area of responsibility (AOR) or to another AOR, when appropriate and practicable, in order to ensure such access.”

Biden’s agency has opened the nation’s doors — and the U.S. job market — to more than one million economic migrants since January 2021. Many of the migrants are killed or raped while trying to reach Biden’s welcome.

(Read at Breitbart how Biden is skirting the issue of child rape among illegals)

Biden has opened the borders in hopes of flooding America with new Democrats. But if this is how he treats those he “welcomes,” then he might be losing them, too.

Speaking for the Hispanics within my circle of influence, all of them hold some Christian beliefs. A few hold to a evangelical tradition and the greater number hold to the Catholic tradition. None of them would appreciate their girls being treated like this. Therefore, this is a guaranteed way for Biden to kill more votes within the Latino realm.

Biden can open our streets to harm

Fighting Fentanyl: The Biden Administration’s Failure of Leadership

The U.S. House’s Roll Call explains how Biden’s border policy has lead to a failure of leadership in the attempt to stem the flow of fentanyl across the border.

The latest data on the opioid crisis shows how the COVID-19 pandemic reversed the progress America was making in decreasing drug overdose deaths.

More than 90,000 Americans died of overdoses between September 2019 and September 2020. Last year, drug overdose deaths rose by more than 27 percent in New York and more than 24 percent in Ohio. Based on current trends, we expect 2021 to be as bad, if not worse.

This heartbreaking surge comes after nationwide drug overdose deaths declined in 2018, for the first time since 1990, and we continued to make progress in 2019. Now, at local events like a Drug Take Back Day in Xenia, Ohio, and at a new addiction treatment service location in Syracuse, N.Y., our constituents tell us drug overdoses are getting worse every day.

The main driver of this surge in overdose deaths are synthetic opioids, and in particular, fentanyl. Fentanyl is cheap to manufacture and 50 times deadlier than heroin — only 2 mg is enough to kill someone. In 2019, there were 70,630 overdose deaths and more than half of those, 36,359, involved fentanyl, sometimes mixed with other drugs, like cocaine, crystal meth or heroin. That’s why keeping fentanyl out of our communities is a matter of life or death.

In years past, most of the fentanyl flooding our streets was coming into our country, shockingly, from China through the mail. A bipartisan report from the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations found that while federal law required private mail carriers to screen packages entering the U.S. to allow law enforcement to identify and stop suspicious packages and prosecute the traffickers, the U.S. Postal Service was exempt. Thus, smugglers were able to mail fentanyl right to people’s doorsteps.

In response, we passed the bipartisan Synthetics Trafficking and Overdose Prevention, or STOP, Act to close this loophole. It worked, but now we are learning that drug traffickers are shipping fentanyl through our southern border with Mexico. According to the Drug Enforcement Administration, “Mexican cartels are increasingly responsible for producing and supplying fentanyl to the U.S. market.” These cartels get chemical ingredients, primarily from China, to produce deadly fentanyl in Mexico to then ship it into our communities.  

Recent data by U.S. Customs and Border Protection shows a massive increase in seizures of fentanyl at the border. CBP has seized more than 600 pounds of deadly fentanyl every month for the last 12 months — a record. In the last six months alone, it has seized 5,400 pounds of fentanyl, enough to kill 1.2 billion people or the entire population of the United States more than three times over. This six-month total is more than all of last year, and CBP believes the vast majority of drugs are getting in without being stopped.

The reason for this is clear — the Biden administration’s radical policy changes have encouraged the drug cartels to smuggle more unlawful migrants and lethal, illicit substances across our southern border. The Biden administration systematically dismantled the existing border security framework put in place by the Trump administration, including revoking the COVID-19 emergency declaration for the border, stopping construction of the border fence, suspending the Remain in Mexico policy, canceling Asylum Cooperative Agreements and severely reducing immigration enforcement within the United States. Last month, Immigration and Customs Enforcement had the fewest deportations in its nearly two decades of existence.

Without deterrence policies, traffickers see a green light to send more drugs and people to the southern border. They use vulnerable individuals, particularly families and unaccompanied children who require significant processing time, as a way to distract Border Patrol agents to allow them to then move large quantities of fentanyl into the United States. This all leads to increased supply of deadly fentanyl, which means more drugs in our communities at lower prices.

(Read at Roll Call about a 4-step plan to stop fentanyl)

As America locked down, the fentanyl problem blossomed. Now it needs to be stemmed.

We need to shut the borders while the COVID issues do not have us bottled in our homes.

Furthermore, the COVID issue seems much too convenient for politicians who need mail-in ballots and too easily exaggerated by those who would profit (by power, by financial reward, or other motive) from large numbers of COVID cases. Therefore, I am really reticent to lend my trust to anyone who uses COVID as an excuse for anything (from not locking down the border to not securing the election).

The 10-year-old girl who Biden mentioned having traveled for an abortion was raped by a alleged illegal alien

As proof that Biden cannot get out of the way of screwing up his own story, Breitbart points out that the girl mentioned in Biden’s pro-abortion speech was raped by one of Biden’s illegal aliens.

An illegal alien is accused of raping a 10-year-old girl whose story was cited by President Joe Biden after she traveled from Ohio to Indiana to seek an abortion.

Gershon Fuentes, a 27-year-old illegal alien, was arraigned in court on Wednesday after he was arrested and charged. He allegedly admitted to raping the 10-year-old girl on two occasions in Columbus, Ohio.

The girl traveled to Indianapolis, Indiana, to get an abortion. A saliva sample was collected from Fuentes at the time of his arrest and detectives said DNA samples from him and from the girl’s siblings are being tested to verify the felony charges.

An Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) official confirmed to Breitbart News that Fuentes is an illegal alien living in the United States. The official also said the agency has placed a detainer on Fuentes to take him into their custody if he is released from local police custody.

Assistant Franklin County Prosecutor Dan Meyer told the media that Fuentes is believed to be an illegal alien living in the Columbus area. The Columbus Dispatch and the IndyStar both reported that Fuentes is suspected to be an illegal alien.

The Dispatch reports:

During Wednesday’s hearing, Assistant Franklin County Prosecutor Dan Meyer requested Fuentes be held without bondHe said Fuentes is not believed to be in the country legally and there are questions about his identity. [Emphasis added]

The rape swept international headlines after Biden repeated the story twice during speeches at the White House. Biden cited the case as evidence that girls and women would have to travel out of red states to seek abortions following the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade last month.

“Ten years old. Raped. Six weeks pregnant. Already traumatized. Was forced to travel to another state,” Biden said. “Imagine being that little girl. Just — I’m serious — just imagine being that little girl.”

Despite Biden’s claims, Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost noted that although Ohio has hugely limited abortion across the state, its law allows for medical emergencies which include cases like the 10-year-old girl who was raped.

“She did not have to leave Ohio to find treatment,” Yost said.

Liberal group lands $171 million gov’t contract that could reach $1 billion to help illegal immigrants avoid deportation

Fox News exposes a contract with a liberal group that would help illegal aliens avoid deportation.

A left-wing nonprofit working to end mass incarceration landed a $171.7 million taxpayer-funded government contract that could potentially hit $1 billion to help unaccompanied minors avoid deportation, Fox News Digital has discovered.

The Vera Institute of Justice, a New York-based group that supports defunding police and views immigration enforcement agencies as a “threat” to civil liberties, was awarded a Health and Human Services-funded contract in March to provide legal assistance to unaccompanied minors, according to a federal database.

The arrangement lasts until March 2023 but can reach as high as $983 million if renewed until March 2027, the agreement shows. This appears to be the largest federal contract Vera has secured for immigration-related services for any single year dating back to the mid-2000s.

The lofty nine-figure contract came amid an escalating border crisis that saw more than 239,000 migrant encounters in May alone — a historic high. There were 14,699 encounters of unaccompanied minors in May, an increase from the 12,180 encountered in April and slightly higher than the 14,052 encountered in May 2021.

Leftist Republicans join with Democrats for gun confiscation

Breitbart tells us of Pat Toomey and his hopes to pull other Republicans into a gun control deal with Democrats.

Senator Pat Toomey (R-PA) said Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that he hoped at least half of his Republican colleagues in the Senate would vote for the gun package he was currently negotiating.

Partial transcript as follows:

MARGARET BRENNAN: Well, we see overwhelming support in our CBS polling for background checks, which is why it’s interesting that it’s difficult. There was a Republican congressman in the state of New York, I’m sure you heard about this. Chris Jacobs. He represents a district around Buffalo where there was an awful mass shooting just a few weeks ago, he dropped out of his reelection race. After- seven days after he publicly endorsed a Federal Assault Weapons Ban and limits on high capacity magazines. This is what he had to say.

REP. CHRIS JACOBS ON TAPE: We have a problem in our country, in terms of both our major parties. If you stray from a party position, you are annihilated. For the Republicans, it came- it became pretty apparent to me over the last week that that issue is gun control. Any gun control.

BRENNAN: Do you agree with him?

TOOMEY: No, I don’t. I think there’s a wide range of opinions among elected Republicans just as there are among Republican voters across the country-

BRENNAN: Well–

TOOMEY: –in my case, I wrote a bill with Senator Manchin and advocated for expanding background checks in 2013, as you pointed out, again in 2015–

BRENNAN: –right, but you couldn’t get enough Republicans to vote with you to get it passed–

TOOMEY: –We voted on it in 2016. I was reelected- I was- I was reelected without a primary challenge. So I think that that tells you something also

BRENNAN: Well, excuse me, I’m sorry, my voice. The President himself has campaigned on this idea that he can be a deal breaker- broker. Does he need to get involved? Or does the involvement of the president lessen the chances of success here?

TOOMEY: Yeah, the problem is I think the President might have been a president who would reach across the aisle try to bring people together. But he’s chosen not to take that approach. Since day one, he has sided with the far left of his party and really not reached out to Republicans. He gave a speech on this topic where he advocated policies that he knows for sure have no chance of passing the Senate probably couldn’t even get 50 votes, and hold the Democrats much less get the 60 we would need. So once again, the President is not being very helpful. I think at the end of the day, this is going to come down to whether we can reach a consensus in the United States Senate. There are intensive discussions underway. It includes people who have not been engaged on this issue in the past. I can’t certainly can’t guarantee any outcome. But it feels to me like we are closer than we’ve been since I’ve been in the Senate.

BRENNAN: So you can get four other Republicans to stand with you, the six who are negotiating?

TOOMEY: My hope is we’ll get a lot more than that. My hope is we’ll get at least half the Republican conference. (continued in great detail)

Obviously liberals who duped Republicans for years now want to retire comfortably

These liberals (commonly called RINOs) like Toomey and Cornyn have seen that their fellow liberal activists will stand outside their houses and protest for days on end. They don’t want that, so they have determined to sacrifice our rights.

It seems to me that it is time for conservatives to act like liberals. Exactly like liberals — down to the riots, marches, and protests outside of officials homes.

Biden’s open-border policy overwhelms shelters in Maine

The Epoch Times reports on the effect of Biden’s open-border policy on even far-from-the-Southern-border Maine.

Facing an impending humanitarian crisis, Portland Family Shelters Director Mike Guthrie has a simple message to anyone who will listen, “We need help!”

Guthrie, a hands-on, frontline worker in the effort to feed, clothes, and house a continuous flow of foreign nationals arriving in Portland by airplane or bus from the U.S. southern border, told The Epoch Times, “Our family shelter facilities, our warming room, and even area hotel space is at capacity. We have maxed out our community resources.

“The time is coming when I’m going to have to look a dad in the face and tell him and his family that I don’t know where they’re going to sleep tonight.”

The Portland Family Shelter is a complex of four rented buildings in various states of renovation located in the heart of downtown.

Some of the structures are gradually being converted into small apartments where up to four families will share a single kitchen and bathroom.

All four buildings are overflowing their present capacity.

“The intake is greater and faster than we can process,” Guthrie said.

To accommodate the stream of new arrivals, the family shelter program has in recent months placed 309 families (1,091 people) in eight hotels located in five neighboring municipalities spread over three counties of southeastern Maine’s prime tourist and vacation region.

Those moves, with their attendant complications and problems, have resulted in some pushback from the local Mainers who fear their prized relaxed lifestyle may never be the same.

And they resent not having a voice in any of it.

“It’s just part of the state government’s plan to bring the slums to the suburbs,” said a Mainer from the resort and tourist community of Kennebunkport, a small town about 28 miles down the Atlantic coast from Portland.

“The United States cannot rescue Africa.”

Coming out of the Kennebunkport post office, long-time Mainers Virginia and Robert shared their opinions on what the locals see as the “invasion” of Maine by immigrants.

Virginia commented, “We have sympathy for the asylum seekers, but resources are over-extended and now it’s going beyond Portland.”

“Eventually, it’s going to impact our quality of life,” Robert said.

Pressures on Portland’s homeless shelter capacity last year inspired a York County community action group to obtain a federal grant to help house the city’s regular homeless population.

If Biden implements his system of slavery to the state, then these would likely be the neediest

As long as college students imagine themselves as being the recipients of governmental largesse, those college students tend to support socialism. However, I have never participated in a class (as either a student or instructor) where A, B, and C-grade students volunteered to give away grade points to failing students who had skipped assignments or tests.

Something tells me that formerly socialist-leaning students who might find themselves working only for other peoples’ benefit might consider the slavery of socialism differently.

Nonetheless, while Biden holds power, it seems he remains all too willing to make us slaves of the Democrats in charge.

As Biden continues to pander to the climate change crowd, voters say gasoline prices and inflation will drive their vote

The Daily Mail spells out the mood of voters as the mid-term elections approach.

Voters say that economic issues are their top priority heading into the 2022 midterm elections as only 37 percent say they approve of how President Joe Biden is handling economic recovery – and even less approve of gas prices and inflation.

A whopping 83 percent of Americans say that the economy is either an extremely or very important issue in determining how they will vote, according to an ABC News/Ipsos poll published on Sunday.

But Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg assured ABC News in a Sunday morning interview that inflation is Biden’s ‘top economic priority,’ despite record-setting hikes and record-low approval.

‘I’m sure additional ideas will be welcomed,’ Buttigieg said on the continued effort to improve the economy.

When it comes to inflation, only 28 percent of Americans approve of Biden’s handling of the issue compared to the 71 percent who disapprove.

Rapid Ukrainian refugee processing highlights Biden’s unjust immigration policy


Rapid Ukrainian refugee processing highlights Biden’s unjust immigration policy

The Washington Examiner uses the example of how quickly Ukrainian refugees get processed through the system as an illustration of the injustice of Biden’s immigration policy.

The Benito Juarez sports complex in Tijuana, Mexico, has become a hub for Ukrainian refugees on their way to the United States. On Monday, the Biden administration began a new refugee plan for Ukrainians fleeing the Russian invasion of their home country.

“Uniting for Ukraine” will allow U.S. citizens and nongovernmental organizations to sponsor Ukrainian refugees, who will receive a two-year humanitarian parole to the U.S., as well as an authorization to work. Over the past few weeks, efforts to assist the Ukrainians’ passage to the U.S. have been extensive. On arrival at the sports complex, Ukrainians receive a registration number. While waiting to be called for processing by border officials, they have access to plentiful food, places to rest, and assistance from volunteers.

Processing is occurring at an unprecedented pace, according to BuzzFeed News. Where U.S. Customs and Border Protection could once only process 50-80 asylum-seekers on a given day, the agency is now “processing hundreds of people a day, sometimes as many as 1,000.” After processing, the Mexican government buses refugees at a time to the San Ysidro Port of Entry. Perhaps 15,000 Ukrainians have recently entered the U.S. from Tijuana. Considering the rapidity of the processing, the number could be higher. Neither the State Department nor U.S. Customs and Border Protection responded to requests for an updated count of the number of Ukrainian refugees processed in Tijuana.

The experience for Ukrainians at the border has been vastly different from that of refugees from other countries. BuzzFeed demonstrated how the current orderly layout of the Benito Juarez sports complex contrasts with more haphazard conditions for Central American migrants who were held around the facility in 2018. The Ukrainians’ circumstances are also vastly improved compared to those of refugees who currently live in camps throughout Tijuana.

One Mexican volunteer at the Benito Juarez complex, who spoke to me on condition of anonymity, said he was “glad to help the Ukrainian people [because he] knew they were coming from a very bad situation.” He noticed tremendous disparities, though, while he toured two of around two dozen Tijuana shelters. One camp, run by a local church, had just three full-time and two part-time volunteers to care for over 1,000 refugees from political unrest of cartel violence in Honduras, El Salvador, Haiti, and Mexico. Though the shelters were set up to be temporary facilities, he said that some migrant families had been there for one to two years, with only one family being processed each year.

It may be racism or just incompetence

On 27 April 2022, Senator Lankford pointed toward unworkable details of the Biden plan to supplant Title 42.

Senator James Lankford (R-OK), lead Republican on the Border Management Subcommittee of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, today called out the Biden Administration’s supposed “plan” to replace Title 42. Lankford, report in hand, quoted the Biden Administration’s own admission in their “plan” that “a significant increase in migrant encounters will substantially strain our system even further.”

Lankford is leading the charge to push back on the Biden Administration’s plans to revoke temporary, pandemic-related Title 42 authority as early as May 23 and to stop the ongoing chaos at the southern border amid Biden’s hypocrisy about COVID. After the highest year on record for illegal crossings this past year and 221,000 “encounters” of border crossers last month, Lankford introduced the Public Health and Border Security Act to require all COVID-19 related national states of emergency to be lifted before Title 42 is officially terminated until a workable plan to replace it is put in place. Clearly for Lankford, Biden’s “plan” released yesterday is not workable.

Transcript

This is policy insanity. The Biden Administration is getting the immigration policy that they designed. They stripped away all the restrictions for actually people crossing the border. They get this result. Now, with record-high numbers of people illegally crossing the border, now they’re saying, ‘And we’re going to drop Title 42 as well.’ So we get record-high numbers now of illegal crossings, and they’re going to say, ‘We’re going to strip away the last piece that we hadn’t taken away before to increase this number even higher.’

May I remind everyone that’s here of the simple fact that 221,000 ‘encounters,’ as they called them, from the last month is a record-high number. What people are not talking about as well are the 66,000 what they call ‘gotaways’ that also happened last month. That is, the border patrol were so active trying to round up and engage this group of 221,000, they could see in the distance and count people crossing the border. There were 66,000 that we had no contact with that we literally watched them come across the border.

Who’s crossing the border, and what’s happening at this point?

Well it’s people from 157 different countries, just in the last six months, that have crossed the border. None of these individuals have a criminal background check actually carried out on them from their home country. They’re doing a criminal background check if they’ve committed a crime in the United States before, but we have no idea in the country they’re coming from if there’s a criminal background at all. And for the 66,000 gotaways that happened just last month, we have no criminal background check in this country or in their previous country.

Radio reports allege that DHS officers have testified that Title 42 has not been enforced for weeks (despite the fact that a court recently ordered Biden to reinstate Title 42). Of course, no main stream media backs this allegation.

 

Aspects of Biden’s border policy not fully explored by main stream media and why


Man Suspected Of Brutally Murdering Queens Mom Was In U.S. Illegally: Report

The Daily Wire points out how the murderer of a New York mom was in America illegally.

The man suspected of murdering a 51-year-old mother in Queens last week and dragging her dead body down the street in a duffle bag was in the U.S. illegally, sources told the New York Post.

David Bonola, 44, was arrested on Wednesday and charged with the murder of Orsolya Gaal on Thursday. According to sources at the NYPD, he entered the U.S. illegally 21 years ago.

“[L]aw-enforcement sources revealed Friday that he was living in New York in violation of immigration law when busted Wednesday for Gaal’s horrific slaying,” the Post reported.

The Post added that officials were initially unsure if Bonola was a legal resident of the U.S. “But Immigration and Customs Enforcement confirmed to The Post that it has lodged a detainer with Queens Central Booking, where Bonola currently is,” the outlet reported.

(Read details of the murder at the Daily Wire)

To be certain, this murder is the fault of the murderer. However, there is also fault for the facilitator

Let’s be clear. Had Biden not opened the border during his campaign and kept it open every day of his time in office so far, we would not have many of the problems we have with illegal immigration, illegal drugs (like fentanyl — which has been streaming over the southern border), or human trafficking.

However, the press would have us ignore that and go on to obsess over Johnny Depp or Will Smith or some other peripheral story.

Media runs interference for joe just like they did for jimmy by claiming he is our best hope

Breitbart shows how the media has run interference for Dementia Joe as he bumbles through every job he encounters.

Now that Joe Biden’s approval rating has fallen—it’s hovering in the low 40s, and it can’t get up—the Main Stream Media have come up with a new line of defense for their man. Okay, goes this new line, Biden isn’t doing so well, but that’s to be expected—because no president can do well. That is, the problems are just too tough, the job is just too hard, the country is just too polarized, yada yada yada.

As we shall see, history suggests that the American people won’t buy an argument based on hopelessness, which we can call the desperation defense. After all, Americans tend to be optimistic and solution-oriented. And so if an elected official can’t solve the problem, throw him out and give someone else a chance. That’s the American Way. 

Yet the MSM, which certainly sees itself as higher and better than the American public and its bourgeois ways, is all in with its last-ditch apologia for the 46th president. For instance, there was this April 17 headline from CNN: “Biden confronts a host of problems he can’t do much to solve.” As the article sought to “journosplain” to us, “There’s not much he can do to curb inflation. There’s not much he can do to stop migrants from reaching America’s southern border. Or to reduce crime.” In fact, there is much that a president can do. And past presidents have done it. For instance, the 40th president, Ronald Reagan, dramatically cut inflation. And the 45th president, Donald Trump, significantly reduced immigration. 

The CNN story even said of Biden, “There’s not much he can do to compel cooperation from defectors within his thin Democratic congressional majorities.” We might recall that Biden spent 36 years in the U.S. Senate, and another eight years, as vice president, as president of the Senate. Indeed, a key part of his argument for election in 2020 was that he was an insider who knew how to get things done in D.C. So now, to say that Biden can’t work with a Democratic Congress is to undercut the rationale for his presidency. (As noted, Biden’s supporters are desperate.)

Of course, while we could at least expect the same level of attacks as were levelled against President Trump, it would be impossible for the press to provide an in-depth coverage of all of the Biden screw-ups, plan-demics, and intentional disasters.

Still, if Joe is the best — then how were things so good under Trump and why does this seem like a cesspool now?

Body of missing Texas Guardsman Bishop E. Evans is found

The New York Post reports on the death of the Texas National Guard soldier who died attempting to save drowning drug traffickers crossing the Rio Grande.

The body of missing Texas National Guardsman Bishop E. Evans was found Monday morning, three days after he dove into the Rio Grande on the Texas-Mexico border to save two migrants attempting to cross the treacherous waters and enter the US illegally.

The body of Evans, a 22-year-old from Arlington, Texas, was found and identified by local authorities, the Texas Military Department revealed. 

“We are devastated by the loss of a member of our Guard family,” Maj Gen Tom Suelzer, Adjutant General for Texas, said in a statement. “We recognize the selflessness of this heroic Soldier who put his life above others in service to our state and national security. The Texas Military Department sends our deepest condolences to the family. Our thoughts and prayers are with them during this difficult time.” 

The Texas Military Department said the two migrants involved were crossing the river into the US “illegally” and were a part of “illicit transnational narcotics trafficking.” They remained in custody as of Saturday.

Rep. Tony Gonzalez (R-Texas) first revealed the news of Evans’ death on Twitter. 

“This young soldier made the ultimate sacrifice in the name of protecting and serving our country,” Gonzalez wrote. “He will never be forgotten.”

For Biden, Black lives matter only when they are not in uniform

Biden does not mind having Black businesses burnt to the ground as long as Black criminals get released. Biden values the criminal element being introduced into the neighborhoods where riots begin.

Conversely, Biden does not necessarily support the police (who put their lives in danger to protect even the criminal element) or the military (who, in this case, jump into swirling and deep water to help drug traffickers).

A federal judge bars Biden from lifting the central Trump-era border policy

The Daily Wire explores the surface of a judge’s decision to keep Title 42 in place.

A federal judge has barred the Biden administration from ending a Trump-era public health policy that affects immigration which is scheduled to lapse in late May.

Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt announced Monday afternoon that a federal judge signed off on a request to issue a temporary restraining order preventing President Joe Biden from lifting Title 42, a Trump-era policy authorizing U.S. Border Patrol to turn away migrants at the border over COVID-19 concerns.

“In a lawsuit originally filed by Missouri, Louisiana, and Arizona, our Office just obtained a temporary restraining order to keep Title 42 in place. This is a huge victory for border security, but the fight continues on,” Schmitt said.

Truth of the matter is that at least one Democrat had a handle on proper border policy

As we can find by reading through a commentary by the Centers for Immigration Studies on Barbara Jordan’s border policy, there was at least one Democrat who had a strong hold on the proper role of government in immigration policy. To whit, this eloquent (but liberal for her time) Texan pointed out:

It is both a right and a responsibility of a democratic society to manage immigration so that it serves the national interest.

Likewise, at a later time, she said:

Cultural and religious diversity does not pose a threat to the national interest as long as public policies ensure civic unity. Such policies should help newcomers learn to speak, read, and write English effectively. They should strengthen civic education in the teaching of American history for all Americans…. [I]mmigration to the United States should be understood as a privilege, not a right. Immigration carries with it obligations to embrace the common core of the American civic culture, to seek to become able to communicate – to the extent possible – in English with other citizens and residents, and to adapt to fundamental constitutional principles and democratic institutions.

It’s just too bad we cannot seem to have Democrats like this again (ones that represented their constituents rather than toed the party line).

I wonder if, had Ms. Jordan survived to today, would there be a voice for allowing Americans to have the same rights to choose masking/unmasking and vaccines/unvaccinated as the illegal alien entering America has.
