The Biden administration is set to spend $86.9 million to house family units unlawfully crossing the U.S.-Mexico border, officials at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) confirmed to The Epoch Times.

Human Traffickers Feed Off Loose Border Laws: ‘America’s Forgotten’ Director

The Biden administration’s much looser stance on immigration than the previous administration is raising new discussion on the broader impacts of encouraging illegal entry into the United States.

The documentary film “America’s Forgotten” explores the death, torture, and suffering that surrounds illegal immigration, a topic that Hollywood appears to view too sensitive to touch.

The Epoch Times’ senior reporter Joshua Philipp interviewed Singh Gujral, the award-winning filmmaker and director of “America’s Forgotten.”. .

Senator Grassley Reintroduces the Gold Standard of Immigration Reform in the Senate

Early in the 117th Congress, Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) has reintroduced FAIR-supported S. 71, the Accountability Through Electronic Verification Act. This bill would permanently authorize and expand the E-Verify program and requires its use by all employers in the United States.

The secondary goal of the mother may be to eventually secure legal permanent resident status, also colloquially known as a “green card.” . . .

Trump Closes U.S. Mexico Border to Combat Covid-19

Supreme Court Allows Remain in Mexico Policy to remain in place

The Supreme Court on Wednesday upheld the Trump administration’s “Remain in Mexico” policy requiring asylum seekers to wait in Mexico while their applications are processed in the U.S.

The court’s decision overturns a 9th Circuit Court of Appeals injunction against the policy covering the entire U.S.-Mexico border. Justice Sonia Sotomayor was the only judge who dissented. However, the ruling does not dispel other legal challenges currently brought against the policy in other courts. . .

FAIR: ‘NO BAN’ Act Endangers Public Safety, National Security

(March 11, 2020, Washington, D.C.) — The following statement was issued by Dan Stein, president of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), regarding an upcoming vote on legislation to dismantle the president’s travel ban authority at the height of the coronavirus outbreak:
