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.

Eric Adams Paints Himself into a Sanctuary Corner

Progressive mayors and governors have had a nice run for more than a decade while their opposition largely stood down. These politicians soaked up the praise from their base that came with declaring their fiefdoms “sanctuaries,” places that defy federal immigration laws and serve as a magnet for noncitizens here illegally. Those who disagreed with the policy were mostly shamed into silence, for fear of being called pejoratives like “nativist,” “xenophobe,” or the dreaded but increasingly tiresome “racist.” . . .

IDNYC: Strain on Services and an Asset to Asylum Abusers

Every proposal for common-sense immigration control relies on proof of identity, both for showing status and ability to work and for receiving services. A number of states have flouted this basic principle by issuing non-REAL ID compliant driver’s licenses to illegal aliens, making it more convenient to remain here illegally. However, the current surge in illegal immigrants overwhelming sanctuary cities is highlighting another way that rogue mayors have enabled large-scale fraud and abuse: municipal IDs, in particular New York City’s IDNYC program. . . .

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. . . .

Cape Cod Proving George Borjas Right: Reduced Immigration Protects Jobs, Lift Wages For Americans

Wages look a lot better for local workers on Cape Cod this summer because the number of foreign workers has collapsed, which, with a low unemployment rate nationwide, caused a labor shortage, boosting wages exactly as Harvard economist George Borjas has long predicted [Yes, Immigration Hurts American Workers, by George Borjas, Politico Magazine, September 1, 2016].

I visited Cape Cod a couple of weeks ago and saw a Starbucks ad in a local newspaper. The globe-straddling coffee emporium offered workers a seasonal bonus rate of $5 an hour at several locations. The reason: It can’t get enough employees. Instead of offering $14.25 an hour to cashiers, Starbucks will pay $19.25. If the Cape had its normal influx of low-wage temporary workers from countries where many people earn under five figures per year, it’s hard to imagine that the company would offer the same wage. . . .

Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous (and Smugly Self-Righteous) Includes Gross Exploitation of Illegal Alien Workers

It’s summer! Which means if you are reading this blog you are probably not in The Hamptons hanging out with the likes of Jay-Z, Beyoncé, the Cuomo brothers, Wall Street power brokers, and the other elitists who demand that the rest of us open up our borders, our hearts and our wallets to wave after wave of illegal aliens. . . .

Let’s Keep Pretending that Mass Illegal Immigration is Not Immoral

All those who are in denial about the moral rot that accompanies unchecked illegal immigration and the culpability of those who enable it, cast your eyes to Luverne, Alabama. That is where a major multinational corporation, Hyundai Motors, has been found to be employing children as young as 12 years old to stamp out parts for vehicles they assemble in a nearby plant. . . .

GOP Rep. Cammack on NYC Mayor Criticizing Migrants Being Bused in: ‘You Play Stupid Games, You Win Stupid Prizes’

Friday on Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria,” Rep. Kat Cammack (R-FL) mocked New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) for complaining about busloads of border crossers and illegal aliens arriving in his city after previously supporting policies that promoted illegal immigration.

After outlining how Adams’ city was a “magnet” for illegal immigrants by making them eligible for assistance programs, Cammack told the mayor that if “you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.” . . .

Biden's America: ICE Will Transport Illegal Immigrants, Detainees Across State Lines to Get Abortions, According to Report

President Joe Biden isn’t doing much to stem the record numbers of illegal immigrants pouring into America across the southern border.

If, however, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement happens to take a pregnant woman into custody and that woman wants to kill her child, the administration will go out of its way to make sure she can. . . .
