Biden must reinstate Pres. Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy

October 16, 2021

In another vindication for President Trump, federal district judge Matthew Kacsmaryk ordered the Biden administration to “enforce and implement” what is formally called the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP). This decision comes in response to a lawsuit from Texas and Missouri, contending the administration’s attempt to terminate the policy was illegal and harmful. The 53-page order can be read here, courtesy of Scribd. The U.S. Supreme Court upheld the ruling.

The policy was established and expanded in 2019 by President Trump and involved sending illegal aliens back to Mexico, rather than being released into the U.S., until their immigration hearings took place.  Once released, there was no incentive for them showing up for their court dates…and they didn’t.

Texas and Missouri each sued the Biden administration for canceling MPP — demanding the restoration of the program.

“President Biden could immediately remedy the influx of crime pouring across our border by reinstating the Migrant Protection Protocols,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton stated in this motion. “Dangerous criminals are taking advantage of the lapse in law enforcement and it’s resulting in human trafficking, smuggling, a plethora of violent crimes, and a massive, unprecedented burden on state and federal programs for which taxpayers must foot the bill.”

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who has become more rational, free from the clutches of open border proponent John McCain, warned that the ongoing illegal immigration surge at the US-Mexico border is creating a golden opportunity for terror groups, calling it “another 9/11 in the making.”

“There are 80 countries that they pick people up from,” Graham told Fox News’ Sean Hannity. “There are two terrorists from Yemen they caught just a few weeks ago. How easy would it be for an Al Qaeda or ISIS cell to leave Afghanistan and come to the southern border, to blend in with this group?”

“The Border Patrol is doing the best they can,” Graham added, “but they told me the likelihood of a terrorist attack coming from our southern border grows by the day.”

Meanwhile, in an unrelated ethical breach, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, has filed a complaint with the Office of Special Counsel, asking that it investigate whether Biden’s mouthpiece Jen Psaki violated the Hatch Act by advocating for the election of Virginia democrat gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe. During a media briefing she said, “We’re going to do everything we can to help former Governor McAuliffe, and we believe in the agenda he’s representing.” 

Deeply entrenched radical leftist McAuliffe was the national chairman of the democrat party and chairman of Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign. He is being challenged by successful businessman, Glenn Youngkin, endorsed by Pres. Trump.

Biden gifts US with another immigration crisis

September 7, 2021

Taliban “screened” Afghanis entering USA

The debacle at our southern border has reached grotesque proportions as Joe Biden is dedicated to dismantling the construction of the wall overseen by President Trump. With that razing, Biden has signaled that all comers, regardless of their origins, are welcome here.

The fact that we are in the midst of a resurgence of a global pandemic is of no consequence as his administration sends unchecked and unvaccinated foreign nationals to states across our nation. They are viewed as future democrat voters, making them prized. Take time to review the most recent stats from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and it will be obvious that our agents are overworked as the numbers have grown beyond the ability to apprehend and hold the vast numbers for processing. They are referred to as “encounters.”

The illegals are no longer limited to illiterate and impoverished Mexicans, El Salvadorans, Guatemalans, Hondurans and Haitians, many with criminal histories, who have previously been deported. The latest group of invaders are especially unique: Afghanis who have been “screened” by our Taliban enemies in the midst of Biden‘s botched withdrawal. They were given passage while Americans remain stranded in the dangerous region…with our 9-11 adversaries now in charge.

POLITICO previously reported U.S. officials in Kabul gave the Taliban a list of names of American citizens, green card holders and Afghan allies to grant entry into the militant-controlled outer perimeter of the city’s airport, a choice that’s prompted outrage behind the scenes from lawmakers and military officials.

Former Trump administration official Stephen Miller tweeted, “The Taliban are the gatekeepers to U.S. admission. Think about that.”

We are being “led” by incompetents, with a debilitated president* who is obviously over his head. “Dr.” Jill, so ambitious to be First Lady, even briefly, should be charged with elder abuse. These are perilous times, yet the Machiavellian democrats are focused on playing gotcha games that imperil us all.

SCOTUS orders Trump-era ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy reinstated

August 25, 2021

Court deals major blow to open borders Biden administration

The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday rejected the Biden administration’s motion for a reprieve from the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling, requiring it to reinstate President Trump’s policy known as “Remain in Mexico.”  Illegal aliens must stay in Mexico while they await a hearing in U.S. immigration court. The court’s three leftist justices — Stephen Breyer, Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor — made clear they would have granted Biden’s handler’s request and ignored the district court’s order.

The high court’s decision means the Biden administration must enforce the policy “in good faith,” though the open border policy it oversees makes it difficult to trust they will comply with the decree without stringent oversight. Those surrogates with the agenda will be calling the shots, as Biden is known to mumble incoherently and wander off-stage.

Though the AP mischaracterizes the illegal invaders as “migrants,” and the lawsuits filed by the governors of Texas and Missouri, as “seeking to reinstate some of the hard-line anti-immigration policies of the Trump administration,” be aware that is blatant editorializing in what is supposed to be a news report. 

These are times unlike others. We are not only dealing with a deadly global epidemic. Thanks to Biden’s surrogates’ miscalculations, the reenergized Taliban Muslim extremists are now armed with our artillery and are preventing Americans and our Afghan allies from getting to the airport in Kabul. In these perilous times, we have a duty and an obligation to know who is entering our country.

The left is unable to be reliable stewards of our nation. Even as we searched for the press release containing the statement in which the Department of Homeland Security said it regrets that the high court declined to issue a stay, and that the department said it would continue to challenge the district court’s order, we found nothing. Not a single sentence relating to the issue. News about the flag-raising ceremony to fly the Progress Flag at the Department of State’s Harry S Truman Building, was given prominence. Former President Truman must be spinning in his grave. This is not his democrat party.

But never fear. The American Civil Liberties Union called on the Biden administration to present a fuller rationale for ending ‘Remain in Mexico’ that could withstand court scrutiny. They’ll listen to them with a keener ear than any citizen group.

Cuban-born Alejandro Mayorkas, the Biden administration’s Director of the Department of Homeland Security, has an open border agenda and suspended the program on Inauguration Day, fully revoking it in June.

The Supreme Court wisely ruled in the best interests of the United States.

Border wisdom from Trump-appointed federal judge

August 15, 2021

In a late Friday decision, Federal Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk, handed the Biden administration a stunning defeat as he revived a Trump-era immigration policy that ordered illegal aliens attempting to breech our sovereign border remain in Mexico as they await U.S. court hearings.

Judge Kacsmaryk who sits on the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas, was appointed to the bench by President Donald Trump in 2019. He has directed the Biden administration to reinstate the program, saying the administration “failed to consider several critical factors” when ending the program. Kacsmaryk delayed his order for seven days to give the administration a chance to appeal.

Kacsmaryk noted Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas did not grasp the benefits of the program, which deterred illegal entrants from the border. Hundreds of thousands of illegals, many positive with COVID have been resettled across the United States by the Biden administration. The judge also stated Mayorkas failed to heed warnings from DHS officials who affirmed the program’s repeal would lead to a surge in illegals into the U.S and ignored the fiscal cost to states of repealing the policy. This shocking escalation (up 327.4% this fiscal year) reflects the most recent numbers released by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

The lawsuit was brought in April by the Republican attorney generals of Texas and Missouri, who argued that ending the MPP (Migrant Protection Protocols)* led to a surge in illegal immigration at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt issued this triumphant statement, “Attorney General Schmitt Scores Massive Win in “Remain in Mexico” Lawsuit.”

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton tweeted “ANOTHER VICTORY!” including the document from the U.S. District Court.

* This was the explanation issued January 24, 2019 by then-Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen M. Nielsen during the Trump administration: “We have implemented an unprecedented action that will address the urgent humanitarian and security crisis at the Southern border. This humanitarian approach will help to end the exploitation of our generous immigration laws. The Migrant Protection Protocols represent a methodical commonsense approach, exercising long-standing statutory authority to help address the crisis at our Southern border.”

The current administration, which has not addressed the border crisis, has no such policy, although VP Kamala Harris — averse to visiting the border — is supposedly the border czarina.

Biden reality check: illegal invasion exceeds crisis levels

August 5, 2021

Real Clear Politics aggregates national polls on a wide range of subjects. Today we bring our readers Joe Biden’s most recent approval ratings on the hot topic of “immigration.” It’s clear to those of us living in the southwest that the incompetent administration has not only lost control of our southern border, Biden has surrendered it. His approval ratings have dramatically plummeted — reflecting  far-reaching, serious discontent.

Although the RCP polling aggregators use the term “immigration,” they are clearly not assessing legal immigration, rather the millions who have invaded the United States in the midst of a pandemic, many of whom are COVID positive.  

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) enforcement page provides data on apprehensions, admissibility, recidivism, and arrests of criminal aliens at the border. This Summary Page, based on FY 2020 data, provides the unconscionable “snapshot of a typical day” for the CBP agents. Scroll though the entire list.  The website declares CPB’s mission is to “Protect the American people, safeguard our borders, and enhance the nation’s economic prosperity.”  This CBP chart details the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens who have entered the U.S. each month in violation of our laws. Now muted as “encounters” by the Biden administration, they were previously identified  as “apprehensions,” when they were actually apprehended and returned instead of being transported to communities across the United States.

Providing protection to American citizens and controlling our border is a big job that has no hope of being accomplished when the Biden administration is not committed to fulfilling its mission. Its open border (our nation only has one) policy is politically driven, intended to increase democrat registration in perpetuity.

Those now setting policy began dismantling construction of the border wall that was underway under President Trump‘s leadership. Securing our border was a fundamental issue on which Trump was elected. On day one, clearly unwell Biden began robotically signing 17 pre-prepared, leather bound  “executive orders” he never read, overturning Trump policies, that were stacked up on his desk by his handlers. Among them, with dozens still to come, was defunding any semblance of border security and canceling the Keystone XL pipeline which has kept us energy independent. Wikipedia has a comprehensive list.

Are you still able to maintain relationships with those who voted for this self-destructive insanity? If so, how and why?

Biden’s farcical double standard on immigration

July 18, 2021

Comparing Biden to Paul Revere: Biden comes up short

The tower of Boston’s Old North Church is immortalized for being where Paul Revere’s “One if by land, two if by sea” lantern signal was sent. The phrase is related to Revere’s midnight ride of April 18, 1775, alerting the colonists, preceding the Battles of Lexington and Concord during the American Revolutionary War. When American history was still taught, we learned these facts.

Things have changed dramatically in the intervening years. Today the leftist educrat members of the teacher’s unions are committed not to our history, but rather to instilling divisiveness — dedicated as they are to indoctrinating Critical Race Theory, where one group of Americans are victims and the other are victimizers, based solely on genetic characteristics over which we have no control.

The Biden administration is energized at the prospect of separating us and laying blame.  It’s their red meat. But there is now what at first blush appears to be an impossible to understand component.

Though the dismantling of the wall on our southern border has been prioritized by the democrats who welcome all comers breaching our southern border* from Central America and Mexico, there is a decidedly different approach to Cubans living under communism 90 miles south of Florida. This past week, they have been marching for freedom from the repressive regime that turned the once popular destination country to a dictatorship run by Fidel Castro and his brother Raul for more than six decades. Communist Miguel Mario Diaz-Canel Bermudez is currently in charge.

Alejandro Mayorkas, Biden’s Secretary of Homeland Security, is another slippery Obama administration cohort now reshuffled over to Biden. He helped implement the DACA program and will be responsible for strengthening it, along with other Biden immigration programs. He also has a short memory. Mayorkas’ own family fled Cuba in 1960 after Fidel Castro’s communist takeover of the country. This was his tweet on the topic.

Mayorkas is not all that concerned about our nation’s security as he welcomes uneducated, unvaccinated and often known criminal invaders from Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador.  However, his and Biden’s message to Cubans hungering for freedom among increasing domestic turmoil along with food and medical shortages is, “Let me be clear. If you take to the sea, you will not come to the United States.”

Why the different treatment? There’s no mystery involved. Cubans are reliably Republicans. Mexicans and Central Americans most often walk lock-step with the democrats.

* U.S. Customs and Border Protection provides these shocking and most updated numbers for Fiscal Year 2021 to Date Stats for June 2021. Check out the percentage increases. Between February and March 2021, after newly installed Joe Biden assumed the presidency, 1,076,242 illegals entered the United States. The numbers have not abated.

SCOTUS rules illegals do not have a right to Green Cards

June 9, 2021

Sanity prevails in unanimous U.S. Supreme Court decision

The U.S. Supreme Court, in a 9-0 unanimous decision, ruled on Monday that illegal aliens who have been granted temporary humanitarian relief from deportation cannot use the process known as “adjustment of status” to obtain lawful permanent residency in the United States without leaving the country. The court ruled in Sanchez v. Mayorkas that adjustment of status is reserved for those who were inspected at the border and admitted to the United States by an immigration officer, thus disqualifying the majority of those granted Temporary Protected Status (TPS). Justice Elena Kagan, nominated to the Supreme Court by President Barack Obama in 2010, wrote the opinion for the court.

El Salvadoran nationals, Jose Sanchez and Sonia Gonzalez illegally entered the United States decades ago. The U.S. government granted them temporary protection in 2001 when it designated El Salvador as part of the TPS program in the wake of damaging earthquakes in that country.

Sanchez and Gonzalez have maintained TPS status for 20 years, during which Sanchez’s employer filed an immigration-visa petition for Sanchez as a “skilled worker.” Immigration officials approved this petition, authorizing Sanchez to be admitted to the United States as a lawful permanent resident. They simultaneously granted the same approval for Gonzalez.

The U.S. government, however, denied the couple’s subsequent application to use the adjustment-of-status process in order to transition from temporary to permanent residency without leaving the United States. Immigration officials ruled that the couple’s original illegal entry disqualified them from adjustment of status. The government relied on the text of Immigration and Nationality Act Section 1255(a), which restricts the in-country adjustment-of-status process to illegal aliens who were “inspected and admitted or paroled into the United States.”

Notice that the U.S. Law refers to the persons in question as “aliens,” throughout. The words, migrants, undocumented, refugees, and asylum seekers are constructs of the left in describing America’s invaders.

This illuminating commentary, “Illegal Alien”: The Proper Terminology, posted on Federation for American Immigration Reform, by Eric A. Ruark is definitely worth your time.

In 2017 there were an estimated 400,000 people from 12 countries with TPS status. That was likely an undercount, which has no doubt escalated in the intervening years. At the time, they were identified as coming across our southern border from El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Myanmar, Nepal, Nicaragua, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Syria, Venezuela and Yemen.

In truth, we have no handle on who is illegally invading the United States, and the democrats have no desire to stop the invasion from which they benefit.

11 Iranians arrested in Yuma as Biden OKs sieve-like border

February 6, 2021

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency media release headline rings loud and clear,Yuma Sector BP Agents Arrest Group of Iranians.”

Among the many reasons Donald Trump was elected president was his commitment to securing our nation’s border. He understood the fact that border security is national security and campaigned on building a wall along our southern border, which resonated with American voters. Biden has halted construction on the wall. He and his extremist handlers view the open border as a means to permanently expand the democrat voter rolls. They are considering expanding statehood to include Washington, DC and Puerto Rico for the same reason. This scheme would provide four new democrat senators.

The Biden administration has already acquiesced to Mexico’s pressure by admitting thousands of illegal aliens into the U.S., ending the ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy that came into existence under the Trump administration.  On Wednesday, Mexican authorities shut down shelters for Central Americans by citing COVID-19 concerns, which should also be a major concern of Joe Biden‘s.

Thousands of unvaccinated and uneducated illegals from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico continue to flood the U.S. unabated, accessing American taxpayer funded benefits as restrictions due to the pandemic force Americans from their jobs. Biden’s most recent gambit is this executive order raising admissions of those claiming ‘refugee status’ by 125,000. How are we supposed to eliminate a deadly virus (interactive map) when hordes of unverified worldwide foreign nationals are giving free rein to fan out across the USA?

Within his first days in office, Joe Biden has signed 47 executive orders — circumventing congress — as he anointed himself supreme ruler. Biden’s orders, which have the authority of law, have surpassed those of Presidents Trump, Obama, G.W. Bush, and Clinton combined. Biden previously said,Only dictators issue executive orders.”

The Islamic Republic of Iran, where its people are led by the Ayatollah in chanting, “Death to America!” is designated by the U.S. Department of State as a dangerous Level 4 with whom the U.S. government does not have diplomatic or consular relations. Americans in Iran are advised by DOS to draft a will, include funeral wishes and make permanent arrangements for their children.

Yet U.S. Border agents are encountering increasing numbers of Iranians, who clearly are not coming to wish us well. This is a result of the welcome mat being thrown down by the Harris/Biden administration and their acquiescing democrat stooges in congress.

Flood of illegals: Texas AG leads again. Where’s AZ AG Brnovich?

January 24, 2021

As the pandemic rages and unemployment skyrockets, Joe Biden delivers on his scheme to increase the heft of the democrat party regardless of its impact.

On his first day in office, he signed an executive order to stop border wall construction and issued a moratorium on deportations of illegal aliens — opening the floodgates for thousands of impoverished Central Americans to enter our nation and undercut the salaries of struggling Americans. There is no plan to test them for the deadly global virus.

Saying his state will face “irreparable harm,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed a lawsuit on Friday that seeks to halt Biden’s policy to block deportations for “100 days” — during which time the illegals, many with criminal records, will fan out over the U.S. and not be seen again.

“In one of its first of dozens of steps that harm Texas and the nation as a whole, the Biden administration directed DHS to violate federal immigration law and breach an agreement to consult and cooperate with Texas on that law. Our state defends the largest section of the southern border in the nation. Failure to properly enforce the law will directly and immediately endanger our citizens and law enforcement personnel,” said Attorney General Paxton. “DHS itself has previously acknowledged that such a freeze on deportations will cause concrete injuries to Texas. I am confident that these unlawful and perilous actions cannot stand. The rule of law and security of our citizens must prevail.”

This is a copy of the letter AG Paxton sent to David Pekoske, Acting Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.

Read the Emergency Application for a Temporary Restraining Order.

This is the legal complaint.

Arizona is also a border state facing the identical flood of illegal aliens. In December 2018, we joined with Texas’ Attorney General Paxton who led a ten state coalition filing a friend-of-the-court brief with the U.S. Supreme Court supporting President Trump’s authority to rescind the unlawful Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. DACA unilaterally granted lawful presence and work permits to over a million illegal aliens without congressional authorization.

Don’t bother looking for more. Not a word about the border invasion, worsened in the time of a deadly pandemic, has independently come from Arizona‘s Attorney General

Take a look at follower Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich’s press release pages to see what he busies himself with. A “No contact document Shred-A-Thon,” in vulnerable border county Yuma topped his list this past week as Joe Biden was opening the border.

Duplicitous Harris/Biden regime supports illegal invasion…

January 19, 2021

…just not right now

It’s still a day before the Harris/Biden administration is sworn-in, but impoverished, uneducated and unskilled Central Americans are not wasting a moment as they caravan into Mexico, with their sights set on the United States. To make matters worse, we are battling a deadly global pandemic, and the hordes of destitute invaders — mostly Honduran and Guatemalan young men — not well versed in sanitation or hygiene, are looking for free food, lodging, health care and other benefits.

The welcome gates are sure to be thrown open by the democrats who see the hordes as a permanent increase in their voter rolls and low wage workers. But they are also aware of the timing and optics, hoping to momentarily freeze the invasion.

During his 2016 campaign, President Trump promised American voters a wall to protect our country from the ongoing incursion encouraged by the Obama administration, and construction began in earnest. (Border Patrol video).The human onslaught came to a halt under Trump as American citizens were prioritized.

Check out waffling Joe’s frequent uncompromising illegal immigration votes while a member of Congress at the website, On The Issues.” They are simple to read in bold headlines and sure to shock.

The Daily Wire headlines its report, “Biden To Ask Congress On First Day To Grant Legal Status To 11 Million Illegal Aliens.” The report details the incoming administration’s stated effort to fast track and legitimize millions of foreign nationals in the United States illegally. It quotes Domingo Garcia, former president of the League of Latin American Citizens, revealing to the AP that Biden told advocates on a call Thursday about his plan. “I was pleasantly surprised that they were going to take quick action because we got the same promises from Obama, who got elected in ’08, and he totally failed,” Garcia said.

Really? How much more do they want?

The harsh reality is political discourse no longer represents just differing opinions on issues of importance. Understand that those who demeaned President Trump and supported the Harris/Biden team were voting against America, our way of life and the rule of law. They might even be related to us, but they are not our friends nor do they care about our children, grandchildren …or America’s future.

This was the Senate Roll Call Vote on H.R. 6061, the Secure Fence Act of 2006.  Its full title: “A bill to establish operational control over the international land and maritime borders of the United States.” Voting in favor of a border wall were then-Senators Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Sen. Chuck Schumer. Our memories are not as short as theirs.
