Treasury Department Investigating DeSantis Illegal Immigrant Flights to Martha’s Vineyard

 

The Biden administration opened an investigation into Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’s flight of illegal immigrants from the U.S.-Mexico border to Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, last month.

The Treasury Department’s inspector general confirmed it is evaluating whether DeSantis allegedly misused COVID-19 relief funds to send the illegal aliens to the wealthy liberal hotspot, said Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) on Wednesday.

A Treasury Department inspector general letter (pdf), dated Oct. 7 and posted by the senator’s office Wednesday, told Markey and other members of Congress that it will evaluate Florida’s COVID-19-related spending. . . .

Emails: Sec. Mayorkas Knew Haitians Not Whipped by Border Patrol Agents Before White House Briefing

 

 

Hours before attending a White House press conference in which Border Patrol agents were excoriated by President Joe Biden for allegedly whipping Haitian migrants from horseback, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas was advised the allegations were challenged by the primary witness. Biden was still left to claim, “To see people treated like they did, horses barely running over, people being strapped, it’s outrageous.” The administration was reacting to photographs of a migrant border surge in Del Rio, Texas, at the time in 2021.

An exclusive Fox News report details a September 24, 2021, email, obtained by the Heritage Foundation via a Freedom of Information Act request. The email to Mayorkas and other DHS leaders from Marsha Espinosa, Assistant Secretary of DHS public affairs, included a news article in which the photographer who took the photograph directly stated he did not observe any agents whipping the migrants. . . .

Appeals Court Ruling Sends a Clear Message that Presidents Cannot Nullify Immigration Law through Executive Action, Says FAIR

(October 6, 2022, Washington, D.C.) – The following statement was issued by Dan Stein, president of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), in response to Wednesday’s ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit declaring the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program to be unlawful:

“Yesterday, the Fifth Circuit correctly upheld a federal district judge’s ruling that the Obama-era DACA program is unlawful. Presidents do not have the authority to exempt entire classes of immigration lawbreakers from enforcement, or provide them with authorization to work in the United States, when federal statutes explicitly bar them from being here or working here. . . .

Business Lobbies Push for Lame-Duck Amnesties

Border Patrol Audit Shows Crucial Step Being Skipped, Harming Americans and Migrants Alike

A recent report issued by the Department of Homeland Security Office of Inspector General (DHS OIG) contains alarming data about the U.S. Border Patrol’s mishandling of alien personal data during the current border crisis. Coverage on the report leaves out the practical effects of this mishandling, which threatens to leave potentially hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens untraceable and in legal limbo.

In a sample of the nearly 400,000 illegal aliens released into the U.S. during a six-month period in 2021, more than one-fourth were not issued alien registration numbers (A-numbers). These numbers are tied to individual files with biographical information and are essential for virtually every government function related to migration. . . .

Labor Day: Feds Annually Outsource over Half a Million American Jobs to Foreign Visa Workers

The number of American jobs outsourced to foreign visa workers each year has exploded in recent decades to more than half a million, federal data suggests.

The Immigration Act of 1990, signed by then-President George H.W. Bush, greatly expanded the number of visa programs and created today’s business model where employers import foreign visa workers in droves to take American jobs in blue-collar and white-collar industries. . . .

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

Gonzales: Biden Deporting only 150 of 11,000 of ‘Dedicated Docket’ Migrants with Deportation Orders Shows They Aren’t Enforcing the Law

On Monday’s broadcast of the Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria,” Rep. Tony Gonzales (R-TX) reacted to numbers from The Los Angeles Times that over 60,000 migrants have entered the “dedicated docket” program launched by the administration in 2021 and around 11,000 have gotten deportation orders, but only about 150 have been deported through July 2022, by stating that the figures show “the administration isn’t doing what it’s supposed to do” and isn’t enforcing the law. . . .
