EXCLUSIVE: ‘Nightmare is Beginning’ as Title 42 Ends, Says CBP Source

EAGLE PASS, Texas — A source within Customs and Border Protection says an announcement was sent to Border Patrol ordering them to immediately discontinue using Title 42 authority to expel applicable migrants from the United States on Tuesday. The source, not authorized to speak to the media, says “the nightmare is just beginning for us — there is no ‘Plan B’.”

The operating instruction to Border Patrol comes after a court ruling was issued on Tuesday ordering a halt to the use of Title 42 to expel certain migrant cohorts. The ruling was issued by United States District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan of the District of Columbia. . . . Read more about EXCLUSIVE: ‘Nightmare is Beginning’ as Title 42 Ends, Says CBP Source

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

Joe Biden Expands ‘Disaster Migrant’ Population to 530,000

President Joe Biden’s advisers have granted temporary legal status to roughly 30,000 Ethiopians now living in the United States.

The award of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) was announced Friday as Ethiopia’s government continues a disastrous war against a non-Ethiopian ethnic group in the Tigray region of the country.

“The United States recognizes the ongoing armed conflict and the extraordinary and temporary conditions engulfing Ethiopia, and DHS is committed to providing temporary protection [for 18 months] to those in need,” said a statement from Alejandro Mayorkas, the pro-migration secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. The statement added:

Ethiopian nationals currently residing in the U.S. who cannot safely return due to conflict-related violence and a humanitarian crisis involving severe food shortages, flooding, drought, and displacement, will be able to remain and work in the United States until conditions in their home country improve. . . .

Social Welfare for Illegal Aliens is Now Being Funneled Through ICE

The hits just keep coming from the most radically open-borders administration in U.S. history. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) recently created the Case Management Pilot Program (CMPP) to provide a range of taxpayer-funded services to illegal aliens in removal proceedings. Even worse, they tapped a Soros-funded nonprofit that wants to abolish U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to oversee it. The fox is truly guarding the henhouse. . . . Read more about Social Welfare for Illegal Aliens is Now Being Funneled Through ICE

Biden Administration's Attempt to Loosen Document Verification Would Clear the Path for Fraud and Unlawful Employment, Charges FAIR

Alert date: 
October 17, 2022
Alert body: 

(October 17, 2022, Washington, D.C.) — Today the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) submitted a public comment in response to a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) that seeks to significantly alter the physical document examination requirements associated with employment eligibility verification (Form I-9).

During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) instituted temporary flexibilities and waived the physical examination of employment and identification documentation for employers facing a sudden and near-total shift to a remote workforce. The Biden administration now seeks the authority, on a discretionary basis, to cement those flexibilities when certain conditions are met. 


"Any action taken under the authority provided by this rule, if finalized, will be viewed as an attempt to ease the requirements of employment verification. While a welcome change for employers contending with large-scale remote workforces, it will be abused by bad actors who will hide behind a far easier good faith compliance defense," wrote Dan Stein, president of FAIR. "With the unprecedented numbers of illegal alien apprehensions and encounters along the southern border and the ever-growing crisis that we are presently witnessing, the demand for work is high, and any attempt to diminish verification will be routinely used by smugglers, traffickers, and unscrupulous employers. Any authority used to weaken document verification requirements will erode the intend of the underlying statute aimed at ensuring that only lawful aliens are eligible to work in the United States." . . .
