FAIR: Speaker McCarthy, We're Here to Help

(January 7, 2023, Washington, D.C.) — The following statement was issued by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) in response to the election of Kevin McCarthy of California as the 53rd Speaker of the House:

"Over the past two years, we have all witnessed the devastating harm wrought by a rogue administration that is asserting near dictatorial powers in a relentless effort to keep our borders open. The American people are appalled by what is going on and want to see it ended.

"Now that the 118th Congress is officially underway with a new House majority, it is in large part because voters rejected the Biden administration's purposeful dismantling of our nation's borders, as well as former Speaker Pelosi's amnesty-first legislative agenda. Newly elected Speaker Kevin McCarthy and the entire Republican conference have a mandate to act decisively to restore control of our borders. . . .

Now in Charge, House Republicans Ante Up on Immigration with Two Bills; Action Expected Next Week

Although the leadership race has not been decided and committee membership is still in the works, House Republicans have already announced they will consider two immigration bills on the floor of the House next week.  The bills tackle two issues:  Title 42 expulsion authority and the law prohibiting illegal aliens from possessing firearms.The first bill, entitled the “Border Safety and Security Act of 2023,” is almost a carbon copy of a bill authored and introduced by Texas Congressman Chip Roy in May 2022.  It is a short, 3-page bill that essentially replicates the Title 42 authority to expel illegal aliens in Title 8, which houses the Immigration and Nationality Act.  Specifically, it grants the Secretary of Homeland Security the authority to expel aliens who do not have proper documents if the Secretary determines in his/her discretion that doing so “is necessary to achieve operational control over such border.” . . .

Biden Unveils Plan to Launder the Unprecedented Flow of Illegal Aliens, Charges FAIR

“After two years of denying that the situation at our southern border constitutes a humanitarian, national security, and public health crisis, President Biden has issued new ‘border enforcement measures’ and ‘additional safe and orderly processes’ for unprecedented numbers of migrants attempting to enter the United States illegally.

“Far from stanching the self-inflicted, unprecedented flow of illegal aliens, the Biden administration announced today that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will now grant parole to Cubans, Haitians, Nicaraguans, and (per the prior program) Venezuelans facing ‘unique challenges’ in their home countries. . . .

Omnibus Spending Bill Does Not Secure the Border, but Further Incentivizes and Enables Illegal Immigration, Charges FAIR

(December 23, 2022, Washington, D.C.) — The 117th Congress finally wrapped up business by approving a lame-duck, pork-laden $1.7 trillion spending bill – consisting of more than 4,000 pages that not a single member had the time to read and fully analyze – funding the federal government through the remainder of the fiscal year.

Passage of the omnibus coincides with a full-blown crisis along our southern border that is about to get a whole lot worse, as the Biden administration is close to ending Title 42, the last remaining mechanism in place under which a limited number of border-crossers are being removed from the country. Yet, not only did the Democratic-led Congress reject an amendment to keep Title 42 in place, they expressly barred increased funding for U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) from being used to secure the border. . . .

Omnibus Spending Bill: $410M for Border Security — in the Middle East

The $1.7 trillion year-end omnibus spending bill uses hundreds of millions of dollars of American taxpayer money to fund border security initiatives overseas as the United States, at its own border, is projected to set illegal immigration records next year.

The spending bill includes $410 million “for enhanced border security” in Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt, Tunisia, and Oman. At least $150 million of the funding is to be used to help Jordan secure its borders. . . . Read more about Omnibus Spending Bill: $410M for Border Security — in the Middle East

Judicial Ruling Barring Termination of Remain in Mexico Policy is a Life Vest for the President. He Should be Smart Enough to Take It

Late on the Thursday, Federal Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk issued a ruling preventing the Biden administration from terminating the Migrant Protection Protocols, aka, Remain in Mexico. The situation at the southern border is hurtling from disastrous to catastrophic – and heading toward cataclysmic, if Title 42 is canceled in the coming weeks. Under the circumstances, the president and the adults in the White House (if there are any left), should view Judge Kacsmaryk’s ruling as a deus ex machina opportunity to save themselves and the country. . . .

Mayorkas Turns a Blind Eye to the Bad Optics in El Paso

Migrants are entering El Paso, Texas, at a crushing rate of 2,500 a day, but Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas managed to miss them during his visit to the beleaguered border city this week. The surge of illegal aliens is spilling onto the streets of El Paso, taxing already strained social services. Frustrated city officials report that U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is releasing migrants into the community en masse.But    Mayorkas didn’t witness any of this for himself. In a tightly choreographed stop on Tuesday, the secretary met with Border Patrol agents at headquarters but did not tour any CBP processing centers, and he skirted around streets and alleys where migrants are dumped. . . .

Texas Governor Seeks Probe of NGOs for Alleged Migrant ‘Illegal Border Crossing’ Assistance

     Texas Governor Greg Abbott called on the attorney general to open an investigation into non-government organizations or NGOs who may have assisted in migrant border crossings into the state. The move comes after record-setting large group crossings around El Paso over the weekend.“There have been recent reports that non-governmental organizations may have assisted with illegal border crossings near El Paso,” Governor Abbott wrote in a letter to Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton. “We further understand NGOs may be engaged in unlawfully orchestrating other border crossings through activities on both sides of the border, including in sectors other than El Paso. In light of these reports, I am calling on the Texas Attorney General’s Office to initiate an investigation into . . .

Biden's refugees resettling in Oregon?

    A massive three-story apartment building is being built in the small town of Lebanon, Oregon, a building whose developers from the Farm Home Development Council (FHDC) claim is mostly farm workers and disabled vets. But Lebanon turned to mechanized strawberry and bean harvesting long ago. Low maintenance filberts also don't need many farm workers. And how many disabled veterans can afford the market-level rent or climb all those stairs?

     It's highly probable that these Colonia Paz apartments are another destination for the millions of illegal aliens who have flooded the U.S. since the Biden Administration began. Incorporating all the children into local school districts will create an extra burden for the local tax payers. This pattern is repeating itself all over Oregon only because citizens tend to find out about the housing boom only after the fact

    Fortunately, a small group of concerned citizens in Lebanon is unraveling the origins of the funding and the 501 C-3 organizations who work under the radar to accommodate the future voters being ushered into the state--as destabilizing that may be. This blog will post new discoveries as they occur.
