Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced he is invoking the “Invasion Clauses of the U.S. and Texas Constitutions” to protect the state from the record-setting influx of migrants. Nearly two-thirds of all migrants illegally crossing the border enter through the five Texas-Based Border Patrol sectors.

Governor Abbott tweeted on Tuesday morning that he invoked the Invasion Clauses of the U.S. and Texas Constitutions in order to protect citizens of the State of Texas from the continuing border crisis created by changes in border security and immigration policies under the Biden administration. . . .

Venezuelans Swarm Across Rio Grande at El Paso, Attack Border Patrol

On Monday, a large group illegally crossed the southern border into the United States at El Paso, Texas and attacked Border Patrol agents. One individual in the group was carrying a giant Venezuelan flag.

Bill Melugin and Adam Shaw of Fox News reported:

[Border Patrol] said one of the protesters assaulted an agent with a flagpole while another threw a rock at agents, injuring one in the process. That in turn led Border Patrol to initiate crowd-control measures.

"These measures included the use of the authorized less-lethal force pepperball launching system," the statement said. "The crowd then dispersed and returned to Mexico." . . . Read more about Venezuelans Swarm Across Rio Grande at El Paso, Attack Border Patrol

Trump Right—Biden’s Immigration Moves Show He Doesn’t Want America To Be A Nation At All

The Biden administration has just ended President Trump’s Migrant Protection Protocols, including the “Remain in Mexico”policy that kept questionable asylum seekers out of our country. Homeland Security chief Alejandro Mayorkas said it was no longer needed and interferes with the administration’s objectives [Termination of the Migrant Protection Protocols Program, DHS.gov, June 1, 2021]. Trump condemned the move with astatement that implicitly explained what it will do: hasten The Great Replacement and dispossess the Historic American Nation. In other words, immigration remains the issue facing the country. If Republicans want to win in 2022, they must campaign against Biden’s Open Borders. . . .

IRLI Defends Florida in Catch-and-Release Suit

WASHINGTON—The Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI) has filed a friend-of-the-court brief in a Florida federal district court opposing the Biden administration’s latest attempt to rid itself of the state of Florida’s lawsuit challenging its policy of catching and releasing illegal aliens.

In moving for summary judgment against Florida, the administration claims it has unbounded discretion about whether to detain and deport illegal aliens, and so its policy of simply not enforcing the law cannot be reviewed by a court. In its brief, IRLI shows that, in fact, Congress very clearly and sharply limited the administration’s discretion when it mandated that illegal aliens be detained and removed from the country. . . .

How Migrants Enjoyed Lush Hotel Perks at Your Expense

The U.S. government not only put illegal aliens in hotels at taxpayer expense, but it signed lucrative no-bid contracts to provide migrants with five-star treatment, including laundry service, in-room meal delivery, mattress choices and security attendants.Under the discontinued program run by a private contractor, hotels were taken over in El Paso, Pecos and Cotulla, Texas, and Chandler and Phoenix in Arizona as the Biden administration scrambled to accommodate a record influx of border crossers.Migrants got three meals a day via room service (complete with several meat options), 24-hour access to drinks and snacks, babysitting services and other perks. . . .

Biden’s Handpicked Border Patrol Chief Admits There are No Consequences to Illegal Immigration

Raul Ortiz was appointed Chief of the U.S. Border Patrol in August 2021 by President Biden because of his willingness to go along with the administration’s lax border enforcement policies. In that role, Ortiz has towed the administration’s line that our borders are secure and our immigration laws are being enforced, even as it is plainly evident that they are not.

However, while Ortiz has been willing to lie for the administration in the media, he drew the line at perjuring himself. In July, Ortiz was deposed, under oath, by the office of the Florida Attorney General in a lawsuit brought by the state against the Biden administration’s handling of the border. A video of that deposition was publicly released in September. In it, Ortiz, under penalty of perjury, effectively calls Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Vice President Kamala Harris liars for claiming that our borders are secure. . . .

Biden’s Belated Border Numbers Tell a Terrifying Tale

Late on Friday October 21, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) finally released the September numbers for illegal aliens encountered at the Southwest Border: 227,547, an all-time high for any September on record. The numbers themselves make it clear why the Biden administration is so keen on keeping them out of the press and away from public view. In a functioning administration, legally mandated reporting of routine data doesn’t require coaxing or righteous vows. Unfortunately for Americans, the Biden administration’s sole function on the border seems to be allowing as many illegal aliens to cross as possible while trying to obscure that fact from the interested public. . . .

More than 100,000 New York City Kids are Homeless, While Migrants are Put Up in Swank Hotels

New York City officials remain “extremely concerned” about the fact that, for the past seven years, more than 100,000 school kids have experienced homelessness, but the alacrity with which they have moved to find suitable living accommodations for a wave of illegal migrants could not be more jarring. . . .

Border Incompetence Leaves Over 60,000 Aliens in Limbo, Drawing Fire from All Sides

In May, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas stated that the objective of the Biden administration was “safe, orderly… pathways for individuals to be able to access our legal system”, usurping the congressional mandate for a secure border. However, it seems that under current leadership, DHS can’t handle even this watered-down mission. A scathing new report shows that the Biden administration failed to deliver this promised “orderly access” to tens of thousands of illegal aliens it has let into the country. The sheer scale of this failure threatens our already overloaded immigration court system. . . . Read more about Border Incompetence Leaves Over 60,000 Aliens in Limbo, Drawing Fire from All Sides
