Illegal immigrants getting ‘pallets’ of baby formula at detention center while shelves are nearly empty in American stores, US congresswoman declares

Reported by DAVE URBANSKI | May 12, 2022


Republican U.S. Rep. Kat Cammack said that “pallets” of baby formula are being delivered to an illegal immigrant detention center in Texas while Americans’ chances of finding formula on supermarket shelves grow more slim by the day. Cammack, a Florida lawmaker who was elected in 2020, indicated in a pair of Facebook videos Wednesday that a Border Patrol agent at the Ursula facility in McAllen sent her photos showing pallets of baby formula and other food for infants that had been delivered to the detention center.

“They are sending pallets — pallets — of baby formula to the border,” Cammack said. “Meanwhile, in our own district at home, we cannot find baby formula.”

“The first photo is from this morning at the Ursula Processing Center at the U.S. border. Shelves and pallets packed with baby formula,” she wrote in a related Twitter post. “The second is from a shelf right here at home. Formula is scarce. This is what America last looks like.”

Cammack added in her first video that “we literally are struggling to find baby formula around the country; moms are struggling, going from store to store to store and then the stores are actually capping the amount of baby formula they will sell them.”

The congresswoman called it “unconscionable” and said the administration of President Joe Biden is responsible for the “open border policy” that is “crushing the middle class.”

“They hate everything about [former President] Donald Trump so much … they’re willing to hurt their own citizens,” Cammack added, saying it’s “absolutely outrageous.”

Cammack posted a second video later Wednesday and was no less outraged, saying the Border Patrol agent told her, “Kat, you would not believe the shipment I just brought in.”

She went on to say that “he has been a Border Patrol agent for 30 years, and he has never seen anything quite like this. He is a grandfather, and he is saying that his own children can’t get … baby formula.”

While she wasn’t happy that the baby formula was going to “illegals that are crossing into the United States,” Cammack said “it is not the children’s fault at all.”

Rather what is “infuriating” is “that this is another example of the America last agenda that the Biden administration continues to perpetuate,” she added.

“I don’t know about you, but if I am a mother in anywhere, any-town America, and I go to my local Walmart or Target or Publix or Safeway or Kroger or wherever it may be that you shop, and you are seeing their shelves, and you are seeing signs that you are not able to get baby formula, and then you see the American government sending by the pallet thousands and thousands of containers of baby formula to the border, that would make my blood boil,” Cammack also said.

Cammack told her viewers that Republicans in Congress are doing what they can about the issue, but “we have zero leverage.”

The federal Office of the Administration for Children & Families — which oversees the Office of Refugee Resettlement — on Thursday didn’t immediately respond to TheBlaze’s request for comment on Cammack’s claims.

The Biden Admin is proving every day that Americans are not even their primary concern anymore. The Biden Admin is talking about compensating illegals for separating them at the border after they broke our law and came here illegally…

Angel Mom Kiyan Michael appeared on Fox News to call out this B.S. Michael lost her son after a twice deported illegal hit him with a car. The Illegal of course had no registration, license, or business being behind the wheel of a car in this country.

“Brandon should still be here. He was only twenty-one years old. He was engaged to be married, our middle child, and he was just beginning his life,” Michael explained.

“The Biden administration did not have to fix anything,” she continued. “If we just continued that on, there would be more Americans who would be safe right now, and it is infuriating because our children should still be here.”

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced over the weekend there were potentially over 70 flights that transported migrants from the border into Florida overnight, beginning in the summer.

Meanwhile, President Biden has also come under fire for reportedly considering massive payments, of $450,000, to separated migrants under the Trump administration.

Michael cursed the proposed payments calling it both “outrageous” and “unacceptable.”

“It is outrageous, the fact that he wants to reward people for breaking the law when we have legal avenues to come into our country,” Michael stated. “And to reward them when we know as Americans, if I break the law, I will be separated from my child.“

Michael continued, “If he wants to talk about separation, we are permanently separated from our son, Brandon, and not because we decided to break the law.”

“I do not believe Americans will fall for it for a moment; that our tax dollars would go and be utilized by this administration to reward bad behavior, to reward illegal activity — it’s preposterous.”

Biden was originally talking about giving these illegals about half a million in compensation, far more than any angel mom is getting after losing a child permanently. I know our country is rich but I didn’t realize we were just throwing money at people who break our laws now, well as long as they are foreign that is.

DHS secretary says 1 in 5 migrants have an ‘illness’ while releasing thousands into the US

Reported by PHIL SHIVER | September 28, 2021


In an admission that may boost claims that the Biden administration’s border crisis is partly driving a COVID-19 surge in the U.S., Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas acknowledged on Monday that approximately one out of every five migrants entering the country illegally have an “illness.”

The DHS chief did not specify whether the illness he was referring to was COVID-19 during his speech at the virtual Immigration Law and Policy Conference. But he noted in his remarks that the rise of the COVID-19 Delta variant caught him off guard and that amid a pandemic, the U.S. immigration system is not capable of handling a rapid influx of migrants.

“We are confronted with a population of people that, as a general matter, have a rate of illness of approximately 20%,” Mayorkas said, according to the Daily Mail. “When one is speaking of 7,000 or 7,500 people encountered at the border every day, if one takes a look at that system, it is not built for that in a Covid environment where isolation is required.”

“What I didn’t expect was the tragic rise of the Delta variant,” the secretary noted, adding, “We took a step back by reason of that. I did not expect to be in late September where we are.”

Moreover, that figure does not include the nearly 15,000 predominantly Haitian migrants who have been processed in recent days after camping out in squalid conditions under a bridge in Del Rio, Texas.

Mayorkas told reporters at the White House on Friday that U.S. immigration authorities did not test those migrants for COVID-19.

“We did not test that population of individuals,” he said. “We do not know, I do not know, I should say if I may be perfectly accurate, I do not know if anyone was sick with COVID. We certainly had some people get sick, not with COVID to my knowledge, and we addressed their illnesses.”

Nevertheless, at least 12,000 of those migrants have reportedly been released into the U.S. in spite of the Biden administration’s promises to repatriate them. Since the start of the border surge earlier this year, the administration has released tens of thousands of migrants directly into the country, many without being tested for the virus.

The Daily Mail cited the administration’s inability to test migrants to note it is unclear how exactly the secretary arrived at the 20% figure. At the time of publication, neither video nor a transcript of Mayorkas comments was available. A representative for the Immigration Law and Policy Conference said a video would be posted by Tuesday evening.

Texas mayor pleads for help as migrant COVID cases surge: ‘A crisis the city did not create’

The mayor of a Texas border town is pleading for help in responding to the immigration surge as an influx of positive COVID-19 cases flow across the border, leaving the town of McAllen overwhelmed.  

“We finally need help,” Mayor Javier Villalobos of McAllen, Texas, shared on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle” last week, adding that politicians in Washington “could change this with the stroke of a pen.” 

“People blame us sometimes here in the municipality and we tell them it’s outside of our jurisdiction,” he shared. “If you want to place blame, we know exactly where to do it and that’s in Washington. And whether it’s the president, Congress, the Senate, whatever it is, they’re the ones who can take care of it.”

McAllen is a town of over 144,000 people located at the southern tip of Texas in the Rio Grande Valley. The lack of support from the White House and U.S. Congress places a heavy burden on local governments to contain the immigration surge, which puts a strain on their resources and workforce. 

“At the very end, this is not our responsibility. We don’t do this. We don’t deal with immigration,” the mayor of McAllen said. 

Villalobos also said the city is “running out of money,” and shared how the overflow of immigrants has led the city to set up emergency tents and issue an emergency disaster declaration. The declaration warned that U.S. Customs and Border Protection “is releasing an alarmingly substantial number of immigrants into the City, including individuals that are positive for COVID-19.” 

The city of McAllen announced over 7,000 COVID-positive migrants had been released by CBP since mid-February, including over 1,500 COVID-positive immigrants released in the past week, Fox News reported. 

Immigrants released by CBP are sent to be tested by Catholic Charities, a third-party, and are asked to quarantine in a room if they test positive, according to Fox News. In its declaration, the city warned that nonprofits, including Catholic Charities’ Humanitarian Respite Center, are “overwhelmed with the unanticipated influx of individuals and can no longer adequately feed, house, provide medical attention or otherwise accommodate the individuals being released into the City.” 

The city said the “rapidly escalating” surge in immigration is developing a crisis bigger than the city can handle. 

“Despite the City of McAllen and its community partners’ best efforts, the sheer number of immigrants being released into the city has become a crisis: a crisis the City of McAllen did not create and has proactively tried to avoid for seven years,” the city said in a statement.

“This significant change increases the threat of COVID spread or other lawlessness within the city.”

Fox News’ Laura Ingraham asked the mayor if he had noticed a difference in the handling of immigration between the transition from former President Donald Trump to President Joe Biden.

Without trying to be political, the mayor said that “six, seven, eight months ago, we did not have the issues we have now.”

“It’s totally different,” the mayor stressed.

Biden has reversed many Trump-era immigration policies on the first day in office, including halting construction on the border wall. Many Republicans blame the new administration’s border policies for the uptick in immigrants crossing the southern border in 2021. 

According to numbers released by the CBP, over 188,000 border enforcement encounters took place in June. In June 2019, the last year before the pandemic, there were over 104,000 border enforcement encounters. The year 2021 has seen the highest number of unlawful border crossings in over 20 years.

Vice President Kamala Harris, who was tapped to be the border czar, has been criticized by Republicans for not being proactive in response to the border, instead focusing her efforts on the root causes in the countries of origin. 

Fears of COVID-19 surging because of an increase in immigrants testing positive and the introduction of the delta variant has sparked an order restricting some immigrants from crossing the border. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention extended an order last week restricting the introduction of certain immigrants coming from Canada and Mexico to protect public health and the spread of COVID-19 through Title 42 public health protections. In effect, the order means that the Biden administration will continue the Trump-era policy of quickly expelling migrants and asylum seekers from the U.S. to Mexico, CBS News reports. The order also includes an exemption for unaccompanied minors.

“As part of the United States’ mitigation efforts in response to the rise in COVID-19 cases due to the delta variant, the Department of Homeland Security has begun to transport individuals expelled under Title 42 by plane to the Mexican interior,” a Department of Homeland Security spokesperson told Fox News on Friday.

California Lawmakers Are Trying To Allow Non-US-Citizens To Run For State Office

Reported by

What could possibly go wrong with this? Who would they support the most? California or illegal immigrants? Also, how could you limit them to voting for statewide offices only? If they vote for a House member, Senate or presidential, it’s a felony. Not that the Democrats would mind, the have wet dreams about it on a daily basis. The bill, SB 174, would amend an old provision in the state code that was originally drawn up in 1872 in order to prevent Chinese and other immigrants from running for state offices. 

But the new law wouldn’t be limited to legal residents. Illegal aliens would be permitted to run for state offices. But it would also make them highly visible deportation targets. The bill is the brainchild of California State Sen. Ricardo Lara.

It is not necessarily a bill to shore up illegal aliens as much as it is a way of shaking up Lara’s failing campaign for  California Insurance Commissioner. Polls show that Lara is far behind former California Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner, who instead of running as a Republican again is running as an independent.

There has been no word on how other legislators feel about the proposal but my guess is they really don’t want the competition.

From Breitbart News

California has already allowed at least two illegal aliens to serve in state office. Most recently, State Sen. Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles) appointed Lizbeth Mateo to the California Student Opportunity and Access Program Project Grant Advisory Committee.

Mateo is an illegal alien who was brought to the U.S. as a minor by her parents but is not eligible for deferred deportation under DACA because she returned to Mexico and attempted to re-enter the U.S. in 2013 as part of a protest. She was detained at the border and requested asylum — after spending several weeks in Mexico with family.

The Left Wants to Ban Guns Rather Than Deport Illegals!

Authored by Tami Jackson | on

deporting illegals a good start

Any American patriot who has a modicum of knowledge of United States history, of our founding documents — the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution — understands that firearms played a big part in our independence. The British — King George III and his agents in America — sought to seize the Colonials’ rifles, muskets, ball, and powder, and thereby control the settlers and further cripple them with taxes.

The Second Amendment was added in spite of some who protested: many in the New World thought it nonsensical to add a right to keep and bear arms. After all, they had recently secured their independence from the tyranny of King George due in large part to the colonials being armed. Surely no one would ever seek to disarm Americans?

The proponents of the Second won the day, thank goodness, because now the Progressives (aka Socialists) would love nothing more than to disarm the “lowly, unenlightened masses.”

The Left — Feinstein and Bloomberg and Pelosi et al — don’t care about the citizens’ health and well-being — they care about CONTROL! Period. 

Think of gun-free Chicago with its astronomical murder rate. Gun-grabbers hate that topic. Bring up The Windy City and you get a chorus of Lefties, fingers in ears, shouting, “LA LA LA I can’t HEAR you!!!”

Another Leftist stroke-inducing topic? Illegal alien criminality. Whoah boy! The radical left call them undocumented and paint a picture of peaceful, law-abiding (uh…didn’t the break the law to get here?) people who just want to be Americans. Except they don’t. These illegals don’t want to become Americans. They do NOT want to assimilate and learn English and be good citizens.

Hint: good citizens do not break the law.

What these illegals do want to do is become recipients of American healthcare, food, housing, schools, etc., all on the taxpayer dime. Oh you can be sure the Socialists call it free. But it is not. Might be free to those who sneak across our border then scurry quick-like to the nearest bleeding heart Democrat to sign up for free stuff. But the so-called “free stuff” is expensive to Americans.

Especially Americans like Kate Steinle. Or like Deputy Sheriff Danny Oliver or Placer County Sheriff’s Detective Michael Davis Jr..

Kate was the daughter of Jim and Liz. Danny had a wife and two daughters. Michael Davis left behind a wife and four children.

Oliver and Davis’ killer, Luis Bracamontes, was “a Mexican citizen who had been deported repeatedly and had a felony drug and weapons history.”

Those are but three examples out of hundreds across this land.

Let’s get something straight: anyone who sneaks into the United States of America unlawfully is already a lawbreaker. If someone is in this country illegally, they should leave. Period.

So if the Lefties really want to protect Americans, they will get on board with building the wall and securing our border AND deporting illegal aliens.

POLL: San Diego Residents Willing To Pay $4,000 Extra In Taxes To Deport Illegals

waving flagBy


If you buy the liberal media narrative that immigration is somehow a divisive issue, think again. A new poll done in San Diego shows an overwhelming majority of residents would support a massive tax increase if it would be spent deporting illegal aliens.

The survey shows more than four in five respondents would pay an additional $4,000 per taxpayer to “deport America’s illegal immigrants.” Only fewer than three in ten said they would not.

Equally telling: 54 percent agree that “people who have entered the United States without proper documentation” should be deported, while only one-third say they shouldn’t.

When it comes to the presidential election, 47 percent side with Donald Trump’s approach, while only 37 percent believe Hillary’s immigration approach is best.

These numbers are huge for Trump and Republicans. If it can be extrapolated to the rest of the country, the GOP has a huge advantage on this issue in November.

Another equally telling number: 48 percent say that all immigrants – including children born in the United States – should be deported.

The numbers don’t break down by race or ethnicity the way the media would have you believe either. When asked which candidate has the better plan, 53 percent of blacks and 50 percent of Hispanics support Trump’s plan, while only 30 percent of either group support Hillary’s plan. That means that blacks and Hispanics support Trump’s plan in greater margins than whites.

As The American Mirror reports, San Diego County is not a traditionally conservative area. Barack Obama won the county over Mitt Romney in 2012 by almost eight percent.

The poll was conducted on June 23 and has a margin of error of 4.1 to 6.8 percentage points.

The media narrative is that Trump is alienating minorities – particularly Hispanics – with his promise to build a “big beautiful wall” to keep out illegal immigrants from Mexico and Central America.

The results of this poll could turn that on its head.

Obama budget to give more to illegal minors than Social Security recipients

waving flagBy Joe Newby – May 3, 2016

Barack_Obama_signs_HR_3630If Barack Obama has his way, each illegal minor in the U.S. will receive over $2,800 more this year than Social Security recipients. You read that right — People who have worked hard all their lives will get less in Social Security than the estimated 75,000 illegal minors expected to enter the country illegally this year.

According to the Washington Examiner’s Paul Bedard:

President Obama has budgeted $17,613 for each of the estimated 75,000 Central American teens expected to illegally cross into the United States this year, $2,841 more than the average annual Social Security retirement benefit, according to a new report.

The total bill to taxpayers: $1.3 billion in benefits to “unaccompanied children,” more than double what the federal government spent in 2010, according to an analysis of the administration’s programs for illegal minors from the Center for Immigration Studies. The average Social Security retirement benefit is $14,772.

The budget also includes $2.1 billion for refugees, which, Bedard notes, can include the illegals from countries like Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador.

But there’s more:

What’s more, the administration is also spending heavily on a program with the United Nations to help the illegal minors avoid the dangerous trip by declaring them refugees and handing them a plane ticket to the U.S. where, once here, they get special legal status.

The report, titled “Welcoming Unaccompanied Alien Children to the United States,” is a deep dive into the administration’s evolving efforts to let hundreds of thousands of mostly 16- and 17-year-old males settle in the country.

And it only gets worse.

“Children will be able to qualify for refugee status and then be flown to the United States. As a reminder, refugees receive automatic legal status and are required to apply for a green card within their first year following arrival. They can apply for citizenship five years from the date of entry,” said author Nayla Rush.

And of course, she notes these children could even sponsor their parents once they achieve legal status and become naturalized citizens.

Rick Perry Refuses Obama’s Offer For A Tarmac Handshake

Immigration-PiperTexas Gov. Rick Perry (R) won’t be on hand to greet President Barack Obama when Air Force One lands in Austin on Wednesday.

The governor’s office says the White House extended an invitation to Perry to meet Obama on the tarmac when he arrives for Democratic fundraisers in Dallas and Austin. However, Perry refused the offer, asking instead to meet with Obama in private to discuss the high number of unaccompanied children arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border in recent months.

“I appreciate the offer to greet you at Austin-Bergstrom Airport, but a quick handshake on the tarmac will not allow for a thoughtful discussion regarding the humanitarian and national security crises enveloping the Rio Grande Valley in South Texas,” Perry wrote Monday in a letter to the president. “I would instead offer to meet with you at any time during your visit to Texas for a substantive meeting to discuss this critical issue.”

The Texas governor has been a vocal critic of the president’s handling of the situation at the border, repeatedly suggesting that the America the movie with hyperlinkadministration is “in on this somehow.”

“I have to believe that when you do not respond in any way, that you are either inept, or you have some ulterior motive of which you are functioning from,” Perry said during a Sunday appearance on ABC’s “This Week.”

Perry, who greeted the president at the airport last year without much fanfare, previously used a tarmac photo-op to attempt to get a message to Obama. In 2010, he handed a letter detailing his concerns about border security to Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett.

“Look, he’s got the letter. I suspect he’ll read it. I hope he responds to it,” Perry said after the brief encounter.

Obamacare Navigators Helping People Enroll At Mexican Consulates

mexican-flag-us-flag-reutersThe Obama administration has been helping to facilitate a series of events nationwide at Mexican Consulate offices to enroll people in Obamacare – and a key activist says the efforts are “our responsibility” regardless of citizenship.

“Whether they’re Mexican nationals or whether they’re United States citizens or whether they’re in transition– and if they’re there it is our responsibility within all of America to educate on the Affordable Care Act,” Enroll America Field Organizer Jose Medrano told Breitbart News on Wednesday.

Health Care insurance navigator groups hosted an Obamacare enrollment fair on Tuesday in the Mexican Consulate’s Brownsville office, The Rio Grande Guardian reported last Friday, where Mexican nationals among others were counseled about enrolling in the ACA.

“The Mexican consulate is a very reliable source of information to the Latino community. And therefore when they host their events, yesterday being the health fair, there are several hundred people that show up,” Medrano said.

Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), undocumented immigrants aren’t supposed to be receiving government-run health benefits or subsidized coverage. However, President Barack Obama told Latinos in early March that the website would not be used to find out about an individual’s immigration status.

“None of the information that is provided in order for you to obtain health insurance is in any way transferred to immigration services,” he said.

According to Medrano, 101 families were represented at the ACA enrollment and education fair at the Brownsville Mexican Consulate on Tuesday and about 60 percent of them spoke to a health care counselor. Medrano says that the consulate’s office is helpful “as part of the transition” to “mainstream… America.”

This is not the first time the Mexican Consulate has been used to enroll individuals into Obamacare. Get Covered Illinois announced in late February that the Erie Family Health Center hoped to increase its enrollment numbers at the Mexican Consulate in Chicago, The Sun Times reported.

According to Vegas Seven, in Nevada, the Latino community is being targeted for ACA enrollment at the Mexican Consulate in downtown Las Vegas. Insurance News says Hispanic National Advocacy groups like National Alliance for Hispanic Health have helped lead the push to get more Latinos enrolled in Obamacare.

“Promoting Obamacare at a Mexican consulate raises three major policy concerns,” Stephen Miller, a spokesman for top immigration hawk Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) told Breitbart News.

“One, the possibility that illegal immigrants could fraudulently access federal subsidies; two, that such promotions provide a financial inducement to unlawfully enter the U.S. (or overstay a visa) by offering households headed by illegal immigrants federal subsidies through their legal relatives or dependents; and three, that these activities widen an existing flaw in our legal admissions process by continuing to subvert the principle that those seeking to lawfully enter the US should be financially self-sufficient,” Miller said.

Mexican Consulates have been used previously to advance USDA assistance programs like food stamps to Mexican nationals, The Daily Caller reported in July of 2012. Mexico promoted the program to 50 of its consular offices in the U.S.

In 2012, ranking members of the Senate Budget, Finance, Judiciary, and Agriculture Committees wrote an oversight letter to Secretaries Napolitano and Clinton that said in part:

The [Immigration and Nationality Act] specifically states: ‘An alien who… is likely at any time to become a public charge is inadmissible.’ … We were thus shocked to discover that both the State Department and DHS exclude reliance on almost all governmental welfare programs when evaluating whether an alien is likely to become a public charge… Under your interpretation, an able-bodied immigrant of working age could receive the bulk of his or her income in the form of federal welfare and still not be deemed a ‘public charge.’”

Medrano, however, said the Mexican Consulate is a trusted source of information for Latinos, who use “those who they relied on for good information” in the past.

“So many of these, of course, while they are U.S. citizens have very strong ties to the consulate in terms of news and information and events and things like that,” he said.

He added, “And also, it was a health fair. The Mexican consulate was providing a community health fair and as part of that, they asked us to come in, because that was the tie in.”

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has been taking time out of her schedule to push for more ACA enrollment within the Lone Star state. She has made at least four visits to Texas for ACA outreach and enrollment and education related events since December 20, 2013.

“I’m sure [she was aware],” Medrano said when asked if Sebelius knew about the event at the Mexican Consulate. “We put our events in a database that several organizations are connected to at mainly HHS, so they are fully aware of who was here.”

Medrano says that Sebelius has not visited South Texas yet but Obama Small Business Administrator Yolanda Garcia Olivarez did make an appearance at the consulate during the fair and “met with the consul so it was an event that was driven by that presence as well.” Olivarez also made a visit that day to the Brownsville Chamber of Commerce to promote SBA programs.

Olivares told Brownsville’s Action 4 News, “If they don’t meet the deadline they’ve lost the opportunity to have and to have coverage of affordable health care.”

The fair was one of two events (the other was at the McAllen Convention Center) where ACA navigators are scouring the Rio Grande Valley to enroll Latino individuals into the government health care program.
