Texas plans to build a military base near Eagle Pass in response to ‘Biden’s border crisis’

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced plans Friday to build a Texas National Guard base near the southern border.

It’ll be a Forward Operating Base explicitly designed for Texas National Guard troops to quickly respond “to President Joe Biden’s border crisis,” according to a press release from Abbott’s office.

“Texas is expanding our border security capabilities by building a new Texas Military Department base camp to increase and improve border security operations in this area,” the governor said in a statement. “This will increase the ability for a larger number of Texas Military Department soldiers in Eagle Pass to operate more effectively and efficiently.”

FAIR Applauds the House of Representatives for Impeaching Secretary Mayorkas

(February 13, 2024, Washington, D.C.) “Today’s vote in the House to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, only the second impeachment of a cabinet official in U.S. history, is a victory for the rule of law and the American people. 

“Secretary Mayorkas has not just presided over the greatest wave of illegal immigration in the nation’s history, he has actively encouraged it, facilitated it, and then forced the costs down the throats of the American people. This month marks three years since he swore to uphold the laws of the United States and protect the security of the homeland. Secretary Mayorkas, however, has done precisely the opposite. 

“At every turn, Secretary Mayorkas has ignored . . . Read more about FAIR Applauds the House of Representatives for Impeaching Secretary Mayorkas

‘Cash in Envelopes’: How the US and UN Are Funding the Border Crisis

The United States is bankrolling its own “invasion” by funding the United Nations and its partners, which, in turn, give hundreds of millions of dollars in cash and aid to migrants who eventually cross the U.S. southern border illegally.

While the U.N. has aided migrants for decades, the scope of its operation has dramatically expanded as the number of illegal immigrants—from at least 160 countries—into the United States has surged.

That expansion has been fueled by more than $1 billion in funding from the U.S. government to the U.N. and other agencies assisting migrants, according to a government spending . . . Read more about ‘Cash in Envelopes’: How the US and UN Are Funding the Border Crisis

Mayorkas Refusing to Disclose Full Accounting of Every Illegal Alien Freed into U.S. Under Biden

Facing impeachment, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is refusing to hand over to Congress a full accounting of every illegal alien that has been released into the United States since President Joe Biden took office in late January 2021.

Hispanic Democrats Vow to Oppose Senate Border Deal: Amnesty or Bust!

The Congressional Hispanic Caucus will oppose a deal to expand overall immigration, negotiated by Sens. James Lankford (R-OK), Chris Murphy (D-CT), and Kyrsten Sinema (I-AZ), because it does not include amnesty for millions of illegal aliens.

The bill, released this week, would expand overall immigration to the United States by continuing to funnel border crossers and illegal aliens into American communities through President Joe Biden’s parole pipeline while, at the same time, increasing legal immigration levels by 50,000 green cards every year. . . .

Johnson: Now is not ‘the time for comprehensive immigration reform’

Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) voiced his skepticism of a deal being crafted in the Senate to pair border and migration policy changes with Ukraine aid, and said that now is not the time for comprehensive immigration reform.

Johnson said at a press conference Wednesday morning that while there has been a lot of “thoughtful and deliberative discussion and debate” surrounding the potential deal, he has not seen any final proposal and was “anxious” to see text of the proposal. But he dismissed any . . .

Rand Paul Says Mitch McConnell Plans ‘Sellout’ on Border Security

The still-secret draft deal “is a sellout — it’s going to continue to allow illegal immigration ” because Democrats are threatening Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) with an aid cut-off for Ukraine, Paul said before adding:

It’s saying, “Oh, we’ll let 5,000 people come illegally a day, and then after that, we might try to stop the next 5,000 that day.” It’s completely a sellout.

But it’s because people like Senator [Mitch] McConnell care more about Ukraine than anything else — more than the border, more than anything else. He wants to send $60 billion of your money to Ukraine. On this issue, he is more aligned with Biden. On the issue of funding, of sending your money to Ukraine . . .
