Cost of a bus ticket from Texas to New York City: $250

Day One: New York City is a proud sanctuary for [illegals].

Cost of migrant influx to New York City: $1 billion dollars

Bussing the illegal aliens into red states

Gateway PunditA video just filmed in Maitland, Florida, which is just minutes outside of my Congressional District in Florida 11 shows a bus of Hispanic illegal aliens, ALL MEN, being dropped off in front of an Extended Stay hotel in Maitland where they are being given pre loaded credit cards, hotel rooms, and clothing.

The Biden Administration is making a great effort to hide these arrangements because the American people do not in any way support them. They know this issue is a loser for them with voters. They imagine the people they import will, eventually, become loyal Democrats.


But they haven't managed to pass the necessary legislation yet.

Pivot to amnesty?

Gateway PunditKamala Harris this weekend told reporters that one of her “expectations” this year is mass amnesty for millions of illegal aliens.

A record number of illegal aliens crossed over the US border from Mexico in 2021.

Advertisement - story continues below

Border Patrol agents encountered nearly 2 million illegals last year thanks to Joe Biden’s immigration policies.

Kamala Harris is pushing for mass amnesty in order to permanently entrench the Democrat party.

This sounds like one of those "expections" that you have for your subordinates, rather than an "expectation" like a prediction. I don't know if the two Dem holdouts will be any more or less amenable to this than the other thinly disguised steal all elections forever legislation, but Sinema is a Senator from a border state.

400K illegal aliens just this month

Gateway PunditThe Biden administration is warning a massive surge of up to 400,000 illegal aliens and fake refugees in October could occur as Biden’s mixed messaging and open borders advocates’ court battles keep luring people from around the world to make the costly, dangerous trek to the U.S. southern border.

That's the population of a city the size of Pittsburgh, in just one month. This truly is an invasion.

Weaponizing immigration and naturalization against the citizenry

Daniel GreenfieldThe new strategy begins with using DHS to assemble all the available data on the "potential naturalization-eligible populations" and breaking it down by age, sex, and zip code, as well as other demographic details, to target "outreach".

By "outreach", the working group of agencies headed by Biden appointees means converting aliens into citizens.

That data will allow the government and a spectrum of “partners”, most of them Democrat allies, to target resident aliens the way a corporation targets potential customers of its products.

Except that the data is coming from the government and the product is voting for Democrats.

Meanwhile the Biden administration’s voter turnout machine proposes to promote the benefits of American citizenship through Mexican consulates, provide targeted information about the aliens that need to be turned into citizens to labor unions, and open the door to private funding of its governmental voter turnout operations. HHS, the USDA, and the military are meant to function as components of a partisan effort to find and convert as many Democrat voters as possible.

The Democrats are facing a challenging electoral map in 2022 and 2024, and they’re plotting to use the entire structure of the government to overcome those challenges by creating new voters. Even as Biden opens the borders as wide as he can, the new government voter turnout machine will try to turn illegal aliens into residents and then into citizens, while turning the people who were once Americans into displaced and powerless refugees in their own land.

Read the whole thing.

It's not a new idea, but it is a new push to rush through the process in time for the next election.

Dem reconciliation bill to contain immigration changes

Just The NewsExpected to be included in the Congressional Democrats' $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bill is language that will advance the party's goals for immigration reform. Working with the White House, a group of top Capitol Hill Democrats are workshopping placing a handful of immigration measures into the spending bill that will likely be passed via budget reconciliation, that is with no Republican support.

For years, efforts to reform the American immigration system have stalled as Democrats and Republicans fail to make any sort of meaningful bipartisan progress on the issue. Now, Democrats are opting to strategically move forward potentially without the need for bipartisan agreement.

They know they will lose power in 2022 unless they can basically ram through election fraud from DC. And for Democrats, amnesty is election fraud.

Biden using military resources to ferry illegal aliens around the country

Conservative TreehouseFox News has confirmed that Laughlin Air Force Base in Del Rio, Texas, is being used as a distribution hub for Central American migrants who cross the border illegally. The commander of that base, Lt. Col. Matthew Burrows, has instructed people in his command to keep the activity secret. Tucker Carlson obtained emails from a whistleblower showing instructions from Burrows not to divulge the Air Force activity.

This is entirely inappropriate. Not only is it clearly off-mission for the military, Biden appears to be engaging in efforts to subvert the law rather than enforce it. The legalities of what a President can order the military to do are tricky, but the secrecy around this police makes it clear that the administration feels vulnerable around it. This is not what the people want.

DACA ruled illegal...

Volokh ConspiracyToday, Judge Hanen ruled that DACA was both procedurally and substantively invalid. (Co-blogger Jon Adler wrote about it here). This case has been pending forever. Texas filed the original complaint in May 2018. The case sat around while the DACA rescission litigation wound through the federal courts. Last June, the Chief set aside the rescission memorandum in Regents. Now, a year later, the district court set aside the original policy, which has been in effect since 2012. Yes, the policy is more than 9 years old. It has stretched the entirety of my academic career.

Of course it's illegal, the trick is getting that enforced. The courts have basically danced around the issue for a decade and the Roberts court will likely continue to do so despite a theoretical 6-3 majority.

This says a lot about the rule of law in this country. Specifically, it says we don't have it.

Broward County, Florida, offers illegal aliens ID cards for federal benefits

Judicial WatchFlorida’s second-most populous county is the state’s first to offer illegal immigrants identification cards so they can obtain taxpayer-funded services, including COVID-19 vaccines. Elected officials in Broward County, situated in southeast Florida with a population of about two million, unanimously passed the measure with ardent support from the county’s top law enforcement officer, Sheriff Gregory Tony. Republican Governor Ron DeSantis appointed Tony to the elected position after suspending former Broward Sheriff Scott Israel for mishandling the 2018 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.

"Bipartisan" immigration legislation introduced

Uncover DCTwo Senators John Cornyn (R-TX) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) and two U.S. Representatives Henry Cuellar (D-TX-28) and Tony Gonzales (R-TX-23) introduced a bipartisan immigration bill on Apr. 22. The bicameral legislation called The Bipartisan Border Solutions Act, or S.1358, is a response to the surge at the border.

OK, so at first glance, it doesn't look so bad. The announcement doesn't say anything about granting citizenship. Mostly it talks about various changes to immigration rules to "deal with the border crisis", along with things like additional funding for more illegal alien processing centers near the border.

I don't like the idea of adding more processing centers, because it's already conceding a permanent increase in people flooding across the border illegally rather than following up on what Trump demonstrated would stop the flow.

And then there's those rule changes... they all talk about making things faster and prioritizing them, adding judges, and so on. Maybe that's OK. But I bet there are nasty rule changes hidden in there. And it's not clear what the Democrats get from this, so I'm betting that -- whatever it is -- is also hidden in the details.

And while the Republican half of this bill is coming from Cornyn, he's definitely part of the GOP establishment.

Bottom line: I don't trust this legislation.

Biden releasing illegal aliens into the United States with official IDs

Gateway PunditThe Biden team is reportedly granting thousands of illegal border crossers one-year renewable permits to stay in the United States to apply for asylum, a process that can take multiple years.

According to a new CIS (Center For Immigration Studies) report, aliens will be allowed to receive Social Security cards, paving the way for potential government taxpayer benefits and jobs.

Immigration expert Todd Bensman revealed in a new report that an estimated 34,000 recent border-crossing aliens have already been distributed all around the continental United States.

Bensman stated that if the migrant qualifies to stay, and most do under Biden’s rules, they are tested for COVID and then given documents to stay. Afterward, they are guided to a privately run bus service that disseminates them across America.

Note that Biden is doing this without any legal authority to do so. No law changes, probably didn't even follow the Administrative Procedures Act (which already cost him a loss in a Texas lawsuit), just executive decrees.

Biden wants to import California's population by 2031

Breitbart"Last month, House and Senate Democrats introduced the Biden plan — known as H.R. 1177 & S. 348 — which would give amnesty to the roughly 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States while doubling annual legal immigration to the country, flooding the labor market with more foreign competition for the nation’s more than 17 million jobless Americans.

"Analysis conducted by NumbersUSA, which advocates on behalf of American workers for less foreign competition in the labor market, finds that by 2031, Biden’s amnesty will have imported a foreign-born population nearly the size of California."

This level of immigration, on top of the illegal population already here and at a time when American citizens are struggling for jobs in the COVID economy, is absolutely insane.

The details on the Dems illegal alien amnesty

UncoverDCBoth the House immigration bill, sponsored by Linda Sanchez (D-CA), and the Senate immigration bill has arrived. Mark Krikorian, Executive Director for the Center for Immigration Studies, says it will radically change the face of U.S. immigration policy. Senator Menendez (D-NY), who sponsored the Senate version of the bill, spoke by video conference about the bi-cameral bills.

Like their first legislative act, this is all about making sure that the Dems have a permanent national majority. They'll enable fraud, open the borders, and bring in new illegal voters until they get what they want. Their candidate for AG won't even say that crossing the border illegally is illegal.

Funny how Republicans in office never quite manage to push for anything their voters really want. Sure, tax cuts are nice. But what else?

Sue and settle on deportation policy

ReasonToday, January 22, Texas has sought the first nationwide injunction against the Biden administration. Texas has challenged the 100-day moratorium on deportations. You can download the Complaint and Motion for a Temporary Restraining Order. This case differs from past suits in one significant regard: on January 8, DHS and Texas reached an agreement that limited changes to immigration policy. In effect, the Trump Administration tried to place handcuffs on the Biden Administration.

"Sue and settle" works for both sides, when both sides are playing the same game. It remains to be seen whether judges will rule the same way.

Congress passes H1-B expansion

BreitbartEvery Republican and Democratic senator has let Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) pass a bill through the Senate that will supercharge the outsourcing of the white-collar jobs needed by America’s professional class and its college-educated children.

The bill is carefully designed to help the Fortune 500 companies reward their imported workforce of roughly 400,000 Indian workers who are waiting to get the green cards they expected in exchange for taking jobs from Americans years ago.

They passed it by unanimous consent. Any single Republican objection would have stopped it,but they thought we were all distracted. Trump should veto it, assuming they send it to him while he is still in the White House.

Biden: 11 million amnesty in first 100 days

BreitbartJoe Biden: Amnesty for Over 11 Million Illegal Aliens Going to Senate in My First 100 Days

Already, a number of Senate Republicans have suggested that they are interested in working with Biden on some sort of immigration deal. Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC), John Cornyn (R-TX), and Chuck Grassley (R-IA) have all hinted at striking a Democrat-GOP deal on immigration that would almost certainly include an amnesty.

Exit polling after the election reveals that voters across party and racial lines overwhelmingly want less overall immigration to the U.S. More than 3-in-4 voters, for instance, said it is important to reduce immigration with continued high unemployment, and more than 62 percent said, even after unemployment has leveled off, immigration should remain lower than its current levels.

Traitors. They want to import enough new voters to make sure Trump can never win again.

PJMediaRep. Will Hurd (R-Texas) said many of his Republican colleagues are “afraid” to vote for an immigration reform bill that includes a permanent fix for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and the only way to get it passed is “jamming this on people.”

“They are afraid of ultimately being pegged as ‘you support amnesty’ and that’s going to kill you in a Republican primary, right?” Hurd said during the discussion "Shaping Bipartisan Immigration Policy: What's Next?" at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI) Leadership Conference on Wednesday.

Hurd introduced the Uniting and Securing America Act, or USA Act, with Rep. Pete Aguilar (D-Calif.) at the beginning of the year that would “provide relief from removal and adjustment of status of certain individuals who are long-term United States residents and who entered the United States before reaching the age of 18” as well as “improve border security.”

If you don't want to be pegged as supporting amnesty, perhaps you should consider not supporting amnesty.

40 million cases of identity theft by illegal immigrants

Washington ExaminerNearly 40 million Social Security numbers have been stolen and used by illegal immigrants and others to get work, according to agency records obtained by an immigration reform group.

The Immigration Reform Law Institute said that from 2012 to 2016 there were “39 million instances where names and Social Security numbers on W-2 tax forms did not match the corresponding Social Security records.”

The group said that there is a “thriving black market” used by illegal immigrants to get Social Security numbers needed to get a job.

That's a lot of identity theft, and every single illegal immigrant who wants to work for a living has to commit it. The presence of illegal immigrants is not harmless, even when they are working for a living and not committing violent crimes.

California registering huge numbrs of illegal voters

Front Page MagazineLast week California’s Department of Motor Vehicles sent 23,000 “erroneous” voter registrations to the office of Secretary of State Alex Padilla, who maintains the list of registered voters. The DMV blamed it technical errors and said none of the erroneous registrations involved undocumented immigrants. Padilla was “extremely disappointed and deeply frustrated” and the DMV assured him it wouldn’t happen again.

Legitimate voters have good reason to believe Padilla was not disappointed but delighted. The odds are strong that illegals make up most if not all of the newly registered voters. The registrations of illegals will be happening again, in greater numbers, as the November election approaches.

The day after the 23,000 registrations made news, it emerged that from late April to early August, the DMV registered 182,000 “new voters,” with the largest number, 112,000, choosing “no party.” Neither the DMV nor Padilla would explain the numbers but the trend is evident and all by design.

So why the big effort? Well, there's no presidential race this time around, but House Intel Committee chair Devin Nunes is from California, one of their rare rural seats. They would love to make him stop investigating their party's abuse of the FBI in 2016.

California mayor issues warning of ICE sweep

SFGateThe relationship between U.S. immigration officials and California’s liberal leaders soured long ago, but Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf’s decision to warn potential targets of federal arrest that an immigration sweep could be imminent was an extraordinary escalation.

Schaaf said she issued the alert Saturday night after receiving confidential tips from “credible sources” who revealed that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, known as ICE, was planning arrests across the Bay Area as soon as Sunday.

Obstruction of justice is still a crime, isn't it? Passively not cooperating is one thing, but actively warning criminals is another.

UPDATE: The warning helped 850 illegals evade deportation.

Likely terror attack in Pennsylvania

A shooting spree by a man with an islamic/arab name, originally from Turkey, recently traveled to the middle east. Officials say he was targeting police officers. And the FBI appear to have stopped another attack before it was carried out, although in the latter case, we see the usual pattern of an FBI informant urging an individual to specific violent acts.

We can't stop terrorist attacks by pretending there are no terrorist attacks.
