Biden and his ‘progressives’ responsible for the illegal immigration inundation:
America is under siege. A steady stream of illegal immigrants crossing the southern border is poised to erupt into a tidal wave meant to wash away forever the nation’s red, white and blue identity. It is the inevitable consequence of turning over leadership to “progressives” bent on transforming the U.S. rather than to patriots dedicated to preserving it.
Title 42, the Trump-era rule granting the federal government emergency powers to expel arriving immigrants during the COVID-19 health crisis, has long carried a court-mandated Dec. 21 expiration date. President Biden’s Department of Justice chose not to contest the court ruling, but 19 Republican-led states appealed to the Supreme Court, arguing that Title 42’s end would cause them irreparable harm.
Legal proceedings in Washington amount to flimsy deterrence on the border. That’s because news of the restriction’s expected termination has already drawn asylum-seekers by the tens of thousands to Mexico, counting down the days until their border dash. “I’ve been told by officials that there [are] over 50,000 migrants waiting on the other side of the border, waiting to come over,” Rep. Tony Gonzales, Texas Republican, told Fox News. Following the initial rush, as many as 18,000 are expected to cross into the U.S. illegally each day.
Whether sooner or later, the surge of humanity is likely to rewrite the record books. Fiscal 2022 concluded on Sept. 30 with a total of 2.76 million illegal crossings at the southern U.S. border, eclipsing the previous high of 1.72 million in 2021. --->READ MORE HERE
'Grave Concern': Republicans press Biden for border crisis answers as clock ticks on Title 42:
Several House Republicans are calling on the Biden administration to provide answers and transparency for how it plans to deal with the migrant crisis at the southern border as the White House is poised to terminate the Trump-era Title 42 immigration policy any day now.
In a letter sent to the Biden administration on Wednesday and obtained by the Washington Examiner, 31 House Republicans are urging the president to address a number of concerns related to the termination of Title 42 before lifting the order. The immigration policy was set to expire on Wednesday but has since been extended by the Supreme Court after an emergency plea from 19 Republican-led states urging the court to keep the Trump-era policy.
“President Biden was fully prepared to deliver a heightened border crisis to the American people just in time for Christmas,” said Rep. Andrew Clyde (R-GA), who authored the letter. “Thankfully, the U.S. Supreme Court temporarily blocked the termination of Title 42, giving the Biden administration more time to adequately prepare a comprehensive plan as litigation proceeds. Yet the president is still determined to wreak havoc on the southern border — this time after the holiday weekend and as he enjoys a tropical vacation.”
The three-page letter sent to President Joe Biden on Wednesday specifically outlines six questions lawmakers want answered before Title 42 is lifted. Such questions include how the administration plans to address an expected influx of migrant crossings, how many immigrants have crossed the border with a communicable disease since January 2021, and how many unaccompanied children are at risk of human trafficking due to the surge in border crossings, among other things. --->READ MORE HERE
