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. . . .

Obama Claims Racism to Suppress American Opposition to Biden’s Deadly Migration

Americans oppose President Joe Biden’s lawless and wage-cutting mass migration because they are racist, not because of their economic worries, according to former President Barack Obama“Right now, the biggest fuel behind the Republican agenda is related to immigration and the fear that somehow America’s character is going to be changed if, people of darker shades, there are too many of them here,” Obama told a meeting of Hispanic realtors on September 25 in San Diego, California. . . .

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.

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. . . .

Eric Adams Paints Himself into a Sanctuary Corner

Progressive mayors and governors have had a nice run for more than a decade while their opposition largely stood down. These politicians soaked up the praise from their base that came with declaring their fiefdoms “sanctuaries,” places that defy federal immigration laws and serve as a magnet for noncitizens here illegally. Those who disagreed with the policy were mostly shamed into silence, for fear of being called pejoratives like “nativist,” “xenophobe,” or the dreaded but increasingly tiresome “racist.” . . .

IDNYC: Strain on Services and an Asset to Asylum Abusers

Every proposal for common-sense immigration control relies on proof of identity, both for showing status and ability to work and for receiving services. A number of states have flouted this basic principle by issuing non-REAL ID compliant driver’s licenses to illegal aliens, making it more convenient to remain here illegally. However, the current surge in illegal immigrants overwhelming sanctuary cities is highlighting another way that rogue mayors have enabled large-scale fraud and abuse: municipal IDs, in particular New York City’s IDNYC program. . . .

Crucial Victory! Federal Judge Blocks Mayorkas’ Subversion of Immigration Laws

In a crucial victory for the rule of law, a federal judge blocked the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) from implementing a series of guidelines issued last fall by Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas that effectively put nearly all immigration law violators off-limits to enforcement. . . .

FAIR Analysis: 4.9 Million Illegal Aliens Have Crossed our Borders Since President Biden Took Office

Earlier this month, President Biden took credit for the July inflation rate being “only” 8.5 percent. Now that July border numbers are finally public, the White House may take credit for the fact that “only” 199,976 illegal aliens crossed our border, down from 207,416 in June. A minor drop in border encounters is not encouraging. Traditionally, numbers drop in the hottest summer months, and last month’s figures actually represent a 325 percent increase over the average number of July apprehensions under the Trump administration. . . .

Cape Cod Proving George Borjas Right: Reduced Immigration Protects Jobs, Lift Wages For Americans

Wages look a lot better for local workers on Cape Cod this summer because the number of foreign workers has collapsed, which, with a low unemployment rate nationwide, caused a labor shortage, boosting wages exactly as Harvard economist George Borjas has long predicted [Yes, Immigration Hurts American Workers, by George Borjas, Politico Magazine, September 1, 2016].

I visited Cape Cod a couple of weeks ago and saw a Starbucks ad in a local newspaper. The globe-straddling coffee emporium offered workers a seasonal bonus rate of $5 an hour at several locations. The reason: It can’t get enough employees. Instead of offering $14.25 an hour to cashiers, Starbucks will pay $19.25. If the Cape had its normal influx of low-wage temporary workers from countries where many people earn under five figures per year, it’s hard to imagine that the company would offer the same wage. . . .

Victory! Supreme Court Denies Biden Extra Time to Release Dangerous Alien Criminals

WASHINGTON—Last evening, the Supreme Court denied the Biden administration’s emergency application to stay—that is, suspend—a Texas federal district court ruling vacating its policy of releasing vast numbers of dangerous alien criminals, rather than detaining and deporting them as the law requires. The Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI) had filed a friend-of-the-court brief in the Court opposing the stay. . . . Read more about Victory!
