Thousands of Migrants Freed into U.S. by DHS Resettle in Florida, Texas

After taking office in January, Biden ended the Remain in Mexico program, which had proven remarkably effective in eliminating the Catch and Release policy whereby border crossers are apprehended and subsequently released into the U.S. interior while awaiting their asylum hearings.

As of February, of the more than 71,000 asylum cases under Remain in Mexico, less than one percent of foreign nationals were found to have a legitimate asylum claim. . .

Biden Administration Starts Reuniting Families Separated at Mexico Border

The Biden administration is reuniting four children who were separated from their families at the U.S.-Mexico border under the previous administration, officials said on Monday.

“We expect for families to be reunited tomorrow,” Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said on “CBS This Morning.”

Biden's immigration policies hurt environment? Arizona green groups react to state AG's lawsuit

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich is suing the Biden administration for failing to examine the environmental effects of its immigration policies — but state environmental groups are not supportive.

"This is a cynical lawsuit by the attorney general.

GOP Rep. Nehls Slams Kamala Harris for Not Visiting Border — Doesn’t Want to Hear What a ‘Horrible Job’ She’s Doing

Monday on FNC’s “Fox & Friends,” Rep. Troy Nehls (R-TX) ripped Vice President Kamala Harris for delaying her visit to the United States’ border with Mexico amid the ongoing immigration crisis. Harris, who President Joe Biden put in charge of the border crisis, has used the excuse of “COVID issues” for not visiting the border yet.

Nehls pointed out COVID has not stopped Harris from “jet-setting around this country going to all the different blue states.” He then said the vice president just does not want to hear from people working at the border that she is “doing a horrible job” fixing the problem at the border. . .

The Biden administration over the weekend shuttered a Houston warehouse that housed unaccompanied migrant children following allegations that the nonprofit organization running the site failed to provide adequate living conditions for hundreds of young girls, multiple sources familiar with the matter told ABC News.

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) opened the warehouse early this month in response to the surge of migrants arriving at the southern border. . .

Red State Governors Are Saying No To Biden’s Illegal-Alien Dumping Plan. But What About LEGAL Immigration?

The federal government can’t house and care for the horde of unaccompanied illegal-alien minors at the border, so President Biden has a solution: send them to Red States [Biden administration considers flying migrants to states near the Canadian border for processing, by Nick Miroff, the Washington Post, March 20, 2021]. But some Republican governors are saying no. Their resistance to this illegal-alien dumping shows that the GOP/GAP is moving in the right direction. But much more must be done—above all opposing legal immigrationto prove Republicans are the America First party and stop the Great Replacement. . .

California Foster Parents Asked to Take in Unaccompanied Minors From Central America

  

April 20, 2021 Updated: April 20, 2021

 

Foster parents in California are being asked if they can take in unaccompanied Central American children who have recently crossed the southern border.

Automated emails and phone calls from the state’s Community Care Licensing Division (CCLD) have asked foster parents if they can take anywhere from one to 26 or more children.

Travis and Sharla Kall received a voice message and then a follow-up email in mid-March with the request.

“At first, it was just strange,” Travis Kall told The Epoch Times. He thought it was a mistake until Diandra Causey, a friend and also a foster parent, confirmed with her agency that it was a request to foster unaccompanied minors who had recently crossed the border illegally. . .

 

Biden Shrinks, Gives in to Radical Left on Refugee Policy

If there was any doubt remaining that President Joe Biden would be pushed to the far left by his party’s radicals, that doubt has been erased.

Biden announced on Friday that he would keep in place this year’s cap on the number of refugees allowed into the country, which was put in place by former President Donald Trump before he left office, and he was scorched by leftist lawmakers.

What did Biden do? He buckled to the pressure after having decided to do one sensible thing since taking office in January. . .
