Business Lobbies Push for Lame-Duck Amnesties

“A negative ruling from 5th Circuit on #DACA -[Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals] could impact nearly 700k [migrants] …. jeopardize their ability to work legally and possibly put them at risk of being separated from their families,” said a tweet from the FWD.us, an advocacy group created by billionaire investors including Bill Gates, Eric Schmidt, and Mark and Priscilla Zuckerberg. . . .

Texas’s Democrat Enclaves Bridle at the Migrant Surge in Their Midst

It’s not swanky, cranky Martha’s Vineyard, but Democrat leaders in El Paso are also chafing over migrants in their midst. Border crossings are nothing new for El Pasoans, yet the current unprecedented volumes are overwhelming. The city expects to spend $10 million this month alone feeding, housing and transporting migrants —10 times those outlays over the past four years. With costs running $300,000 a day, officials have cut public safety budgets while wondering if or when relief will come from their party patrons in Washington, D.C. “I don’t think anybody’s expecting it to get any better anytime soon,” grumbles Robert Cortinas, chief financial officer for the city government.

El Paso Mayor Buses Migrants to NYC to Relieve Overwhelmed Detention Facilities

The surge of migrants moving west to the El Paso Border Patrol Sector led to the apprehension of approximately 30,000 in August, a source within U.S. Customs and Border Protection says. The trend overwhelmed the sector’s detention capacity, forcing agents to carry out street releases. gents in the El Paso Sector jumped into the number two spot with the apprehension of just under 30,000 migrants, Breitbart Texas reported. This is up from approximately 25,000 apprehended in July. With one month to go in the fiscal year, agents in the El Paso Sector apprehended nearly 260,000 migrants. . . .

The Biden Administration (Once Again) Denies the Reality of the Border Crisis

More than a year and a half into the Biden administration, the White House continues to double down on lies, denials, and spin whenever its spokespeople are pressed on the out-of-control border crisis. By doing so, the administration is demonstrating a shameless refusal to take responsibility for the effects of its own open-borders policies. It is also insulting the intelligence of the American people, a large majority of whom are apparently not buying the official narrative. Needless to say, attempting to deny reality is hardly a solid basis for good policy. . . . Read more about The Biden Administration (Once Again) Denies the Reality of the Border Crisis

EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS: Mexican Immigration Officers Assault Migrants in Detention Camp

Mexican immigration officials are reportedly assaulting migrants and placing them in solitary confinement inside the country’s largest migrant camp. While the detention center is only meant to be a temporary station for migrants who have been caught in Mexico and await release or deportation, authorities have systemically turned it into a harsh prison facility where occupants are routinely mistreated and extorted. . .

FAIR Analysis: 4.9 Million Illegal Aliens Have Crossed our Borders Since President Biden Took Office

Earlier this month, President Biden took credit for the July inflation rate being “only” 8.5 percent. Now that July border numbers are finally public, the White House may take credit for the fact that “only” 199,976 illegal aliens crossed our border, down from 207,416 in June. A minor drop in border encounters is not encouraging. Traditionally, numbers drop in the hottest summer months, and last month’s figures actually represent a 325 percent increase over the average number of July apprehensions under the Trump administration. . . .

FAIR Applauds House Republican Border Security Framework

“Over the past 18 months, we have all witnessed the devastating harm wrought by a rogue administration that is asserting near dictatorial powers in a relentless effort to keep our borders open. The American people are appalled by what is going on and want to see it ended. 

“When the 118th Congress opens with a new House majority, it will be in large part because Americans rejected the Biden administration’s purposeful dismantling of our nation’s borders, as well as Speaker Pelosi’s amnesty-first legislative agenda. . . .
