DC advances Alien Voting Bill

The Washington DC city council took the first of two votes to give voting rights in local elections to foreign nationals, including illegal aliens.The Constitution dictates that the District of Columbia because it is the seat of government be under Congress’ authority.  Article 1 of the Constitution authorizes Congress to exert total legislative authority over Washington, DC. Over time, Congress has ceded its authority over to local control. However, under the Home Rule Act, Congress did retain the ability to block DC bills by passing a joint resolution that is approved by the president within 30 days of the DC mayor adopting them.                                                                                                                                                                                             When Congress passed the DC Home Rule Act in 1973, it specified that only American citizens in DC could vote in elections for federal office.  However, Congress did not specifically limit voting to American citizens when it came to DC’s local offices.  Read more about DC advances Alien Voting Bill

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. . . .

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. . . .

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. . . .

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. . . .
