“There is room in America and brotherhood for all who will support our institutions and aid in our development. But those who come to disturb our peace and dethrone our laws are aliens and enemies forever.” ~ October 28, 1886

GOP Must Call Out Illegal Immigration as ‘Economic Warfare’ Against Working Americans

Republicans must be “hammering” away at illegal immigration as “economic warfare” against working – and middle-class Americans, Sen. J.D. Vance (R-OH) told Breitbart News.

In an exclusive interview with SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News, Vance called on Republicans to discuss illegal immigration as a fixture of “the cheap labor lobby” which seeks to inflate the United States labor market to drive down wages and employ an underclass of cheaper foreign workers with little-to-no bargaining power.

No Border Security Bill Until Citizens Accept More Poor Migrants

Democrats will block a border security bill until American citizens accept more poor migrants into their workplaces and neighborhoods, Texas Democrat Rep. Barbara Lee told a GOP-led hearing on Tuesday.

“You’re not going to get border security coming first,” Lee told a GOP-picked witness, Rodney Scott, the former chief of the U.S. Border Patrol, who urged legislators to first protect the border before opening up more legal routes for migrants.

She continued:

You need to be able to balance it. You will not accept a border security and recognizing pathways to legal entry [bill]? … When the late [Sen. ] John McCain, we had a very strong comprehensive bill — and it had border security and the legal pathway.

Lee’s frank statement exposed the core politics of migration: Democrats — and their bipartisan business and media allies — will block any border security bill unless the GOP votes to let them legally import more poor migrant workers, consumers, renters, and poor people who will turn to government agencies for help.

200k+ border encounters – Is it the new norm?

DHS released its monthly border encounters report for April this week, the last full month before the termination of Title 42 on May 11. Encounters of illegal aliens along the border and at ports of entry were back above 200,000 for the first time since December.

While border encounters have dipped slightly over the first few months of 2023, encounters exceeding 200,000 have become commonplace under the Biden Administration. April was the 13th month since Pres. Biden’s inauguration that total encounters exceeded 200,000. Continue reading

Southwest Border Apprehensions, Encounters Surge in April

Policies have consequences

CBP has released its statistics on Border Patrol apprehensions and CBP overall encounters at the Southwest border for the month of April and, not surprisingly, both surged last month even while Title 42 expulsions dropped. That does not bode well for the administration with Title 42 having some ended on May 11 just as “travel season” at the U.S.-Mexico line gears up. Expect some drop-off in apprehensions when the May numbers come out next month as illegal migrants — and more importantly their smugglers — are still trying to figure out all the loopholes in Biden’s latest border regime.

Danger Within: The Government Is Turning America Into a Constitution-Free Zone

“There are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.” ~ James Madison

How far would you really go to secure the nation’s borders in the so-called name of national security?

Would you give the government limitless amounts of money? Surround the entire country with concrete walls and barbed wire? Erect a high-tech, virtual wall of AI-powered surveillance cameras and drones that does a better job of imprisoning those within its boundaries than keeping intruders out? Empower border police to trample on the rights of anyone who crosses their path, including legal citizens? Continue reading

An Overwhelmed Border Patrol Is Missing an Epidemic of Runners and ‘Got-aways

Border Patrol agents, equipped with sophisticated technology, attempt to apprehend migrants illegally crossing into the United States. But securing the border has become more difficult as agents are taken off the line to process unprecedented numbers of illegal migrants turning themselves in, instead of preventing smuggling, drug and human trafficking, and identifying national security threats. The end of Title 42 will push the numbers of migrants and got-aways even higher. Continue reading

Invasión: May 11, 2023…The insanity will not end!

‘Chaos’ predicted for Texas border city of El Paso

A “catastrophe of epic proportions” is expected to begin along the U.S.-Mexico border on Friday as Title 42 expires at midnight tonight.

Title 42 is the Trump-era public health policy that allows Border Patrol agents to turn illegal immigrants back to Mexico over public health concerns. But thousands of migrants – even more than usual – are expected to enter the country as the policy expires at midnight tonight.

According to a recent Fox News report, the Border Patrol has been authorized to release migrants to the streets if non-governmental organizations (NGOs) can no longer hold them safely. Coincidentally, many facilities are already over capacity… (Continue to full article)

Biden had two years to prepare for the end of Title 42, and he failed

Kyrsten Sinema tears into White House for having no plan for the ‘crisis’ facing Arizona and border towns when restrictions lift TONIGHT

Sinema tore into the Biden administration for failing to prepare for the end of Title 42 as she said she would press forward with getting colleagues on board with her own proposal to do exactly that.

The free-thinking former Democrat said the federal government had left the border state she represents, Arizona, ‘without adequate resources’ for the pandemic-era restriction’s end.

She said she was on the phone with local authorities ‘on an hourly basis’ trying to figure out how stretched state and local resources can step in to aid the inundation of migrants up to and after the conclusion of Title 42… (Continue to full article)

Cartels are making too much MONEY smuggling migrants to allow a surge after Title 42

Ex-border patrol chief says Mexican gangs will control crossings because chaos is bad for business.

Instead of a tidal wave of immigrants flooding the border, Chris Clem said cartels will control numbers to ensure they can keep the profits flowing in for weeks to come.

Title 42 is due to expire at midnight TONIGHT, relaxing public health restrictions designed to stop COVID-19 entering the country with migrants.

A surge in migrants crossing the border is already being reported in Yuma, Arizona, where Clem retired last year as the sector’s Chief Border Patrol Agent… (Continue to full article)

Benson: The Border Crisis Looms – What About Mexico’s Political Past?

The resolution that has kept our Southern border from being completely inundated with illegal aliens is about to expire. And the illegals will swarm across our border like a swarm of locusts and the Biden regime, for all its big talk about the border not being open, along with all the other lies they have told, will look the other way and do nothing about it, all the while continuing to tell us they have the situation under control. Anyone believing them has to believe in the tooth fairy as well. Continue reading

NOTE: It is so interesting how we have to draw all of the following posts from a Foreign News Publication. ~ Editor

Biden ‘finalizes screeching migrant policy U-turn to fend off illegal aliens in Trump-style plans he decried in 2020’
Title 42 expires TOMORROW and thousands more stream over the southern border

Migrants walk through a barbed-wire barrier into the United States after crossing the Rio Grande from Matamoros, Mexico

Joe Biden has finalized Trump-style plans to stop illegal migrants flooding into the U.S less than 48 hours before Title 42 expires – and as thousands more are seen streaming across the border from Mexico.

The policy, as seen by CBS News, is almost identical to a law which had been introduced by the Trump administration – and which was decried by Biden at the time. It required migrants to request refugee status in another country, such as Mexico, during their journey to the southern border – before crossing into the United States.

Those who fail to follow the criteria are liable to be deported… (Continue to full article)

‘This entire operation is a sad joke!’ Border Patrol Union tears into DHS for TELLING migrants and smugglers where and when it’ll ‘conduct targeted enforcement’… two days before Title 42 expires
Late on Monday night the DHS announced that ICE would be conducting a targeted enforcement operation in El Paso, Texas. The operation coincides with surge of thousands of migrants crossing the southern border – but those who crossed illegally will now have time to get make a getaway.

‘Nothing like publicly announcing that dangerous people will be arrested, while warning them ahead of time exactly where to run and hide to avoid arrest. This entire operation is a sad joke – another pandering PR stunt. Serious law enforcement leaders don’t behave this way,’ the Border Patrol Union – NBPC tweeted on Monday night.

Strategically speaking, the announcing of such information makes little sense with those seeking to evade capture by the authorities now given advance warning. It comes just as Border Patrol revealed how its agents caught 26,000 migrants in just three days.. (Continue to full article)

26,382 migrant encounters and 7,399 gotaways in just three days
US-Mexico Border ALREADY sees surge in crossers – with up to 13,000 expected each day when Title 42 ends on Thursday

Border crossings are already spiking in the days leading up to the end of Title 42 with Customs and Border Protection (CBP) apprehending more than 26,000 migrants in just 72 hours. The last three days saw an average of 8,794 migrant apprehensions per day, according to figures released by CBP Chief Raul Ortiz. This is a staggering unprecedented figure that is only expected to grow in coming days with Title 42 set to expire on Thursday

Currently, the average number of migrants crossing the southern border each day is 7,700. But the Biden administration estimates that the number could increase to 13,000 every day once Title 42 is no longer in use. Other external estimates have put that number even higher.

Smugglers are encouraging migrants to head for the border…. (Continue to full article)

Title 42 is ending on Thursday – so what will the border look like in a post-pandemic world as internal estimates warn there are at least 10,000 migrants waiting to cross the second the measure expires
Title 42 is finally coming to an end on Thursday, May 11 and there are at least 10,000 migrants waiting in Mexico to immediately cross the U.S. southern border once the policy is no longer in use.

The public health measure was employed in March 2020 by then-President Donald Trump to quell migration during the COVID-19 pandemic by blocking those caught at those at the border from seeking asylum.

Migrants could be rapidly expelled back to Mexico, and since it began Title 42 has been used more than 2.7 million times. In March more than 191,00 migrants were encountered at the border, and many expect crossings to rise from 7,500 to 13,000 a day when Title 42 ends… (Continue to full article)

Drone video shows huge line of hundreds of migrants who illegally crossed the border into Brownsville, Texas, days before the end of Title 42
A huge line of consisting of hundreds of migrants who crossed into the U.S. illegally from Mexico into Brownsville, Texas was caught on camera on Sunday evening.

A line could best be seen from the air as footage from Fox News’ drone tea, attempted to capture the enormity of the as it snaked off into the distance.

The great majority of the migrants looked to be single adults. Many of those waiting in line did not appear to have baggage of any kind with most simply holding a plastic bag containing important documents.

Although it is not clear exactly where the migrants had arrived from, over the last two weeks there has been a surge of Venezuelan migrants through South Texas, particularly in and around Brownsville. The reasons for the surge are unclear.

On Friday U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas noted that Mexico has agreed week to continue taking back Venezuelans who enter the U.S. illegally even after asylum restrictions end Thursday, along with Cubans, Haitians and Nicaraguans… (Continue to full article)

Border crisis laid bare: Patrol chief reveals force seized 54lbs of fentanyl, 19lbs of heroin and 246lbs of meth and arrested 50,000 illegal aliens last week
US Border Patrol agents made more than 50,000 arrests in one week – with over 1400lbs of drugs being recovered.

Chief Raul Ortiz shared images of the latest busts on to his Twitter page and laid bare the ongoing crisis at the borders.

On Friday he said: ‘Week in review. 1 agent assaulted, 51,560 apprehensions, 16,985 approx gotaways, $31,000 seized, 614lbs cocaine, 540lbs marijuana, 246lbs meth, 54lbs fentanyl, 19lbs heroin, 10 firearms, 17 sex offenders, 5 gang members. Impressive work!’

Images attached by the Chief shows large quantities of drugs that have been bundled together as well a piles of dollar bills.

According to the Chief, these statistics are for the entire border patrol, including the southern, northern and coastal borders… (Continue to full article)

ALERT: Biden vows to veto House GOP bill aimed at securing border
Biden would veto a House GOP bill that aims to secure our southern border by restricting asylum and finish building Trump’s border wall, the White House said Monday.

Republicans are looking to capitalize as immigration trouble surges into a national spotlight this week with the ending of COVID-19 restrictions that allowed border authorities to quickly return many migrants who crossed the border illegally.

GOP lawmkers aim to vote on their Secure the Border Act on Thursday — the same day the emergency expulsion powers expire. Officials have already seen an increase of illegals at the U.S.-Mexico border and are bracing for more.

The legislation represents the GOP’s first major immigration policy proposal since the Trump era, when those who wanted to abide by the nation’s immigration laws controlled the White House. The 213-page bill resurrects a slew of former President Donald Trump’s policies, such as building barriers along hundreds of miles of border country…. (Continue to full article)

Smith: A Tidal Wave of Humanity On America’s Borders

We are watching the ongoing madness on the southern border with some great anger and consternation, as I wonder once more just what will it take, to make Americans decide it is finally up to us, and us alone, to handle our border security in the absence of any real and sincere attempts by the Biden regime. This is a purposeful, manufactured crisis, that taken in conjunction with our economic crisis, is accelerating the ultimate collapse of American society.

In many ways, it almost seems as tho’ the American people’s will has already been broken and they have lost their soul, so beaten down by the ravages of one Democratic Party Communist assault after another.

If the American people do not soon regain an incredibly powerful will and the strength of mind and heart to do whatever it takes to save the country, I full well expect the country will drift along in a static status quo fashion that sees the nation overrun and overwhelmed, as we experience the consequences of a defacto capitulation of our own duties to ourselves, our families and America. ~ J.O.S.

House Leaders look to hold Border/E-Verify floor vote as Title 42 ends

The House of Representatives plans to vote on historic legislation that would end the ongoing border crisis and deter future border surges and illegal immigration in mid-May. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-La.) made the announcement on Thursday and were confident they have the support for it to pass.

The final legislation would combine H.R. 2640, the Border Security and Enforcement Act, passed by the House Judiciary Committee last week and H.R. 2794, the Border Reinforcement Act, passed by the House Homeland Security Committee on Wednesday. Continue reading

Republicans on Judiciary Committee forward a wide-ranging border security bill.

Speaker McCarthy says bill will get a vote by full House.

A major piece of immigration legislation was advanced by the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee late Wednesday night. The Border Security and Enforcement Act of 2023 (H.R. 2640) was passed by a near-party line vote of 23-15. The only dissenting Republican was Thomas Massie (R-Ky.), who expressed opposition to the E-Verify provisions.

The legislation contained language from several individual bills that were combined into a single package. Continue reading

Biden’s Growing Border Crisis: Death, Drugs, and Disorder on the Northern Border

Washington, D.C. (March 28, 2023) – Lost amidst the chaos at the Southwest border is a burgeoning surge of migrants at the Northern border—the international boundary between the United States and Canada. While the number of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Northern border encounters is low compared to the Southwest border, what is happening at the Northern border is still troubling — particularly in the Border Patrol’s Swanton (Vt.) Sector. Continue reading

Leibowitz: NOTHING Has Changed on the Mexican Border

The first time I visited Nogales to see the Mexican border with my own eyes was more than 20 years ago.

George W. Bush was President and the border was a sieve. A rancher named Roger Barnett gave me a tour of his land near Douglas, where he detained border crossers by the score. Later, I headed to Nogales and spoke to the Border Patrol officers.

One statistic lodged in my mind.

That year, the Border Patrol reported 1.6 million “encounters” with migrants along the U.S.-Mexico border. Continue reading

Number of migrants caught illegally crossing southern border ‘has already hit ONE MILLION less than four months into fiscal year…

…is on Track to Smash Records

There have been a total of 1,008,217 migrants caught illegally crossing the border in less than four months into the fiscal year 2023, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) sources are reporting. Pictured: Asylum-seeking migrants walk past a barbed wire fence

The number of migrants caught illegally crossing the southern border has reportedly hit one million in less than four months into the fiscal year – and is on pace to smash records.

As of Friday, there have been a total of 1,008,217 migrant encounters at the southern border since October – the start of the fiscal year – multiple Customs and Border Protection (CBP) sources told Fox News. Continue reading

Smith: America’s Serious Trouble on the Southern Border

It doesn’t matter that many illegal aliens are good and decent people, when they are breaking the U.S. law and jumping in front of millions of others, who are attempting to come to America legally, because so many thousands more are committing well documented rapes, assaults, robberies and murders by the thousand each year, at a rate that has grown exponentially with the Biden regime’s immediate reversal of President Trump’s effective border policy.

To hear Joe Biden tout his actions on the border during the recent State of the Union address was sickening, dishonest and evil to the core, as he attempted to convince the American people that an extremely out-of-control and serious problem didn’t exist on the Southern border, a problem of his making that continues to be facilitated by Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

Border City ‘On the Brink of Collapse’ Because of Illegal Immigration Crisis

Officials in the border town of Yuma, Arizona said this week month that the ongoing illegal immigration crisis has led the area “to the brink of collapse.”

Yuma County Supervisor Jonathan Lines told Fox News that the town has fewer than 100,000 residents. But, the town sees around 6,000 migrants cross the border illegally every week. Of those 6,000, there are reportedly 1,000 to 2,000 “got aways.” Continue reading

Benson: Biden To The Border – What A Farce!

Doo and Fuss on the Border

So Biden is finally going to the border in what will be the ultimate PR stunt. After that he is supposed to go on to Mexico to talk with the Mexican president. More PR drivel! Biden is not and never was his own man. He can only spew the words his bosses put in his mouth–and hope he doesn’t mess them up too much. He has no more power to effect any meaningful change than does the umbrella he carries. Continue reading
