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. . . .

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. . . .

Congressman Biggs: There is an Alien Invasion at our Border

Last week, Congressman Andy Biggs (R-AZ-05) hosted an exclusive premiere of his new film Alien Invasion: A Documentary on the Biden Border Crisis at the Heritage Foundation in Washington, DC. In his opening remarks he made clear the genesis for this production. He explained, “The idea [is] that we take a lot of people to the border – I know we should spread the word; people need to see what it’s like. So I came up with a documentary. We want to get this out to as many people as possible.” As the first documentary of its kind made by a lawmaker, it highlights the true toll open borders have on both the American public and migrants. . . .

Debate Over Allowing In Russians Fleeing Mobilization Raises Important Concerns

Following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February, Moscow has so far failed to break Kyiv’s resistance, albeit not without causing a tremendous deal of death, suffering, and destruction. In fact, the Ukrainian forces pushed back the Russians in September in a counter-offensive, prompting Vladimir Putin to declare a partial mobilization to beef up the Kremlin’s military after it suffered significant losses. Anti-war protests followed as a result, and many young men began fleeing the country to avoid conscription. . . .

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.

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. . . .

Democrats Beef Up Tax Enforcement, But Let Immigration Enforcement Languish

Enforcing laws has not exactly been the Democrats’ strong suit in recent years. At the federal level, the Biden administration has blatantly gutted border and immigration enforcement and is even defying court rulings ordering them to resume enforcement. At the state and local level, prosecutors have essentially nullified entire sections of criminal and civil codes by refusing to prosecute many offenders, while in some states “progressive” laws require that even violent criminals are routinely released without bail. . . .

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
