Tom Cotton Warns Republicans: Don't Be Fooled by Joe Biden's Amnesty Plans

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) is warning House and Senate Republicans not to be “fooled” by President-elect Joe Biden’s upcoming amnesty plan for the 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States, which he says will provide lip service to federal immigration enforcement.

Last week, open borders activists suggested that Biden’s upcoming amnesty plan is the “most aggressive agenda” they have seen in years. The plan is expected to provide amnesty to nearly all illegal aliens living in the U.S. and potentially expand legal immigration, a staple of the corporate lobby’s outsourcing goals. . .

Strong Borders in Light of Covid

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted a gaping hole in America’s ability to protect the health and welfare of her citizens. For the safety of us all, our federal government should take immediate action to stop the introduction of deadly diseases through our southern border. If bureaucrats can spend so much time, effort, and money shutting down businesses, churches, and schools, why can’t they shut down the flow of illegal immigrants? Illegals bypass not only vetting for criminal intent, but for dangerously infectious conditions as well. . .

Feds Try Highway Billboards to Catch Illegal Alien Criminals Released by Sanctuaries

A national pandemic of local municipalities protecting illegal immigrant criminals is driving federal authorities to resort to desperate measures to keep communities safe. This month Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) launched a billboard campaign seeking the public’s help in capturing felons released by various law enforcement agencies throughout Pennsylvania under sanctuary policies. The state has more than a dozen official sanctuary counties that have recently discharged convicted or arrested criminal aliens. Police throughout the Keystone State refuse to honor a local-federal partnership known as 287(g) that notifies ICE of jail inmates in the country illegally so that they can be deported after serving time for state crimes . . .

Federal Courts Rule Against Border Wall Construction

 


President Trump’s efforts to hasten the construction of a barrier on our southwest border faced roadblocks in the courts recently. In two instances, federal courts dealt setbacks to the construction of a border wall – one of his signature campaign promises.

The first case, Sierra Club v. Trump (No. 19-17501), concerns the president’s emergency declaration in February . . .

EXCLUSIVE: Illegal Alien, Alleged Drug Trafficker On The Loose After Sanctuary Authorities Let Him Go, ICE Says


• Mexican national Francisco Vasquez-Cruz was arrested on drug-trafficking charges by Oregon State Police on April 28 and booked into the Jackson County Jail.

• Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) confirmed to the Daily Caller News Foundation that Vasquez-Cruz is in the United States illegally, and is considered an ICE fugitive after Jackson County authorities ignored its detainer request and released him into the public.

• Oregon is a sanctuary state that largely restricts how local and state law enforcement can cooperate with federal immigration authorities.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) requested that Oregon authorities cooperate on the transfer of an illegal alien arrested for drug possession and money laundering, but they refused and the alien is at-large, the agency confirmed.

Two men, Leonel Campos-Valdez and Francisco Vasquez-Cruz, were traveling in a Ford-150 pickup on April 28 when they were stopped by an Oregon State Police trooper for multiple traffic violations, local authorities first revealed. After observing “potential criminal behavior,” the trooper conducted a search of the vehicle. . .

New Way Forward Act: Forget Sanctuary Cities, New Dem-Proposal Would Make America a Sanctuary Country

Sanctuary states are bad enough, but some House Democrats want to make America a sanctuary country. New Way Forward Act

Washington Rep. Pramila Jayapal, California Rep. Karen Bass, Illinois Rep. Jesus “Chuy” Garcia and Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley introduced the “New Way Forward Act” in December. All four are non-white. Forty other congressmen are co-sponsors.

According to its supporters, the “New Way Forward Act” would “decriminalize migration” by turning illegal entry into a civil offense, rather than a federal crime. . .
