Democrats accuse DeSantis of ‘trafficking’ migrants, demand DOJ prosecution — and a US attorney speaks out

Democrats are accusing Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) of human trafficking and demanding that the Justice Department take action against him.

The accusations came on the same day that dozens of migrants arrived in Martha’s Vineyard. GOP governors have been sending migrants to “sanctuary” localities in recent months because President Joe Biden has failed to address the border crisis in which millions of migrants have overwhelmed the southern U.S. border.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) wrote the Justice Department demanding that “kidnapping” charges be considered against DeSantis. Without evidence, Newsom claimed migrants were lured onto the plane that eventually went to Martha’s Vineyard, thus accusing DeSantis of operating a “fraudulent scheme.”

Several of the individuals who were transported to Martha’s Vineyard have alleged that a recruiter induced them to accept the offer of travel based on false representations that they would be transported to Boston and would receive expedited access to work authorization. The interstate travel at issue provides a basis for federal jurisdiction over this matter.

Accordingly, I strongly urge the U.S. Department of Justice (US DOJ) to open an investigation into possible criminal or civil violations of federal law based on this alleged fraudulent scheme.

Specifically, Newsom suggested DeSantis is guilty of kidnapping and violating the civil rights of migrants and suggested he violated a law typically reserved for prosecuting organized crime.

Democrat Nikki Fried, who campaigned against DeSantis for governor, also wrote Attorney General Merrick Garland requesting an investigation, claiming that DeSantis is “trafficking” migrants.

I am writing to urge your office launch an immediate investigation into the actions of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and the transportation of 50 migrants by plane to Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts. The use of human beings to score political points is first and foremost detestable. Additionally, this maneuver raises serious legal questions and will have untold repercussions on the individuals caught up in the Governor’s political stunt. An investigation is necessary to understand who these immigrants are, how they were transported across state lines, and if their rights were violated.

Shockingly, U.S. attorney for Massachusetts Rachael Rollins said Thursday that she will speak to the Justice Department about “next steps.”

“We are looking into that case, and we’ll be speaking with members of the Department of Justice. Massachusetts isn’t the only place where this has happened,” she said, Politico reported. “We have several other sister communities — whether it’s D.C., New York, California — where we’ve seen things like this, and we’re hoping to get some input from the Department of Justice about what our next steps might be, if any at all.”

Under Biden’s leadership, migrants have been transported to cities all across the U.S. because immigration facilities near the border have been overwhelmed by the number of migrants entering the U.S.

Although left-leaning PolitiFact tried to downplay the truthfulness of this, the outlet clearly explained, “The federal government flies adult detainees in its custody from one facility to another, or from one U.S. city to another during deportation proceedings. The U.S. government in some cases also flies unaccompanied children who are being released from its custody to a family member or sponsor.”

The Washington Post also explained, “Both U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) fly undocumented immigrants to different locations in the United States.”

To be fair, the same type of migrant transportation happened in the Trump administration. The pace of transportation, however, has significantly increased because of the border crisis.

NBC News even reported on the Biden administration’s plan to send migrants to cities across the U.S. as they await their turn in immigration court.

One thus wonders what the difference is between the federal government transporting migrants via bus or airplane and Republican governors doing it. Apparently nothing, because administration officials referred to their plan as the “Abbott plan.”

A spokesman for the governor reiterated that “sanctuary” localities are best suited to care for migrants.

“States like Massachusetts, New York and California will better facilitate the care of these individuals who they have invited into our country by incentivizing illegal immigration through their designation as ‘sanctuary states and support for the Biden administration’s open border policies,” said DeSantis communications director Taryn Fenske.

Video: Hundreds of migrants cross into Eagle Pass, Texas, as Democrats are still complaining about 50 illegal immigrants in Martha’s Vineyard

While Democrats continue to make hysteric complaints about Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) sending 50 or so illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard, new footage shows many more migrants crossing into the United States in towns near the southwest border.

Fox News reporter Bill Melugin is in Eagle Pass, Texas, where he reports “large groups of several hundred migrants” are crossing illegally into the country at numerous locations Friday morning.

\u201cNEW: Good morning from Eagle Pass, TX, where we have groups of several hundred migrants crossing illegally in multiple locations right now, including part of this group which started walking along a local highway. We have seen large groups in 3 locations so far today. @FoxNews\u201d

— Bill Melugin (@Bill Melugin) 1663335006

Melugin shared nighttime drone footage taken early this morning that used thermal imaging to film a group of more than 100 illegal immigrants crossing the border illegally into Eagle Pass.

\u201cNEW: For the very first time this AM while it was still dark, we used our brand new night time drone w/ thermal imaging as a large group of migrants crossed illegally into Eagle Pass. As you\u2019ll see, the group was 100+ in size. Grateful to @FoxNews for getting us this new tool!\u201d

— Bill Melugin (@Bill Melugin) 1663338454

The video shows migrants crossing the Rio Grande river from the Mexican side to enter the United States. A large group can be seen walking in single-file formation.

\u201cMore video from our brand new @FoxNews night flying drone with thermal imaging from early this morning. Within just 2 hours in Eagle Pass, TX this AM, we saw 3 large groups totaling 500+ crossing illegally in three spots.\n450,000+ illegal crossings in this sector so far this year\u201d

Immigration authorities are now reporting the highest-ever daily number of migrants entering the U.S. illegally, according to the Washington Free Beacon. Internal communications from the Department of Homeland Security reportedly show Border Patrol officers are documenting about 8,000 migrant encounters per day.

A CBP spokeswoman told the Free Beacon that “the traffic we are seeing this year is similar to the pattern we saw at this time last year.” Last September, CBP reported an average of about 7,700 migrant encounters per day nationwide.

Immigration authorities have reported nearly 2 million total border encounters since the beginning of this fiscal year.

In an interview last weekend, Vice President Kamala Harris insisted that the U.S. border is secure while stating that the U.S. immigration system is broken. Her comments led to backlash from Republicans, who accused the Biden administration of incentivizing illegal immigration with lax border policies and of failing to provide adequate resources for overwhelmed border towns. GOP governors in Arizona, Florida, and Texas have sought to call attention to the chaos in their states by giving illegal immigrants voluntary transport to sanctuary cities like New York, Washington, D.C., and Chicago. This week, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis took credit for sending two planes full of illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, a popular getaway destination for rich, white liberals.

The left had an apoplectic reaction to what DeSantis did. Democratic local officials said the presence of 50 illegal immigrants on the island was a “humanitarian crisis” and slammed DeSantis for not warning they were coming. The White House accused GOP officials of using migrants as “political pawns” and said it was “cruel” to give them a free plane ticket to Martha’s Vineyard. California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) accused DeSantis of “kidnapping” these migrants by misleading them with “false representations that they would be transported to Boston and would receive expedited access to work authorization.”

But none of the migrants were taken to Martha’s Vineyard against their will. And the Biden administration has also flown migrants across the U.S. as they await asylum proceedings because immigration facilities at the southwest border have been overwhelmed by the volume of people entering the country illegally.

The real humanitarian crisis remains at the southwest border, where local morgues are reportedly running out of space as they struggle to keep up with the number of people who drown crossing the Rio Grande river. As the Fox News video shows, the migrant crossings are not stopping, which means more buses and planes are sure to carry illegal immigrants to sanctuary city jurisdictions.

11 Of the Biden Administration’s Greatest Failures So Far

President Joe Biden talks with Vice President Kamala Harris before receiving the Presidential Daily Briefing, Monday, May 9, 2022, in the Oval Office.

From historic failures internationally to crises at home, the Biden administration makes every single thing it touches worse.

It’s no exaggeration: Joe Biden is bringing the country down in a tailspin. From historic failures internationally to crises at home and dropping approval ratings, Biden’s administration makes every single thing it touches worse.

Taken alone, each of these failures is pretty damning, but as a whole — or at least even just this small sampling — they reveal the degree to which our 46th president is a danger to America’s well-being.

1. Facilitating a Deadly Border

On June 20, an abandoned semi-truck was found to contain more than 40 dead migrants, with the death toll later rising to 51. The deceased have been confirmed to be Mexican, Guatemalan, and Honduran citizens entering the United States illegally, although 20 others’ national origins remain undetermined.

On a recent trip to Mexico, Federalist staff saw firsthand the devastating effects of Biden’s refusal to enforce U.S. border and immigration laws. As a result, our southern border is controlled by cartels, which smuggle and exploit men, women, and children — a process that can be deadly.

2. Shipping Illegals to a Community Near You

In addition to ignoring the border crisis, the president is secretly shipping illegal migrants across state borders and into suburban cities and family neighborhoods. In February, he planned to dump 1,000 Afghan refugees right next to Loudoun High School without contacting local law enforcement about the plan.

According to The Daily Wire, the Department of Homeland Security said the Federal Protection Service would provide security for students located next to unvetted foreign citizens, but since FPS has no jurisdiction in Loudoun County, this pledge was meaningless.

3. Holding Kids Hostage to Trans Radicalism

In May, the Biden administration attempted to strongarm public schools into letting males who identify as transgender use girls’ bathrooms by threatening to pull federal funding for school lunches if they didn’t. That’s 30 million lunch-program students Biden took hostage to push his party’s trans radicalism.

4. Tapping into Emergency Petroleum Reserves

Laying all blame on Putin for gas prices that are double what they were before Biden took office, Biden has commissioned the selling of 1 million barrels of oil per day for six months from our national emergency reserve. Instead of saving our stockpile for an emergency and resurrecting the Keystone pipeline and other major American energy projects Biden killed, the administration is using up the largest release from the stockpile in our history — and suggesting you buy an electric car.

5. Botching the Afghanistan Withdrawal

Pulling out of Afghanistan was always the plan — but not the disastrous way Biden did it. By leaving before Afghan forces were prepared, abandoning the Bagram Air Base before evacuating American citizens and Afghan allies, and leaving American citizens, weapons, and equipment for the Taliban to commandeer, Biden committed a tremendous strategic and humanitarian error.

6. Supporting Child Castration and Sterilization

The White House is openly championing “gender-affirming” surgeries and brainwashing attempts targeted at young children, and Biden is not simply a moderate bystander. He has threatened “immediate action” against state governors and attorneys general who decry castration of a kid as child abuse.

7. Driving up Inflation

As Americans are reminded every time they buy groceries or fill their gas tanks, Biden’s policies have caused, or at least exacerbated, record inflation and unsustainably high consumer prices. By throwing money at problems the government largely created through the so-called American Rescue Plan, relinquishing U.S. energy independence, and printing more money, among other fiscally irresponsible policies, the president has helped make just about everything Americans need more expensive.

8. Letting Babies Go Hungry

Due to government-mandated shutdowns that slowed deliveries, burdensome regulations, and then Biden’s Food and Drug Administration’s shutdown of the largest baby formula-making plants in the country, Americans found themselves unable to find needed formula, leaving infants in hospitals and families desperate. Their desperation turned to frustration with the Biden administration when they realized the president was using their tax dollars to buy and ship formula to illegal immigrants at the border.

9. Forcing the Covid Jab

Despite his so-called “pro-choice” posture, Biden sought to force Americans to put vaccines into their bodies by issuing a rule that all workers in any business of more than 100 employees must get vaccinated or else be constantly tested. His vaccine-or-test mandate for workers was overruled by the Supreme Court and later withdrawn by his administration.

10. Scheming to Enact Abortion Radicalism

Biden has expressed support for an abortion-specific carveout for the filibuster, advocating for an exemption strictly to empower Congress to codify Roe v. Wade without having enough votes. This radicalism is despite his previous passion for the filibuster and Democrats’ constant use of it during President Donald Trump’s tenure.

11. Tanking His Own Approval

Biden has utterly failed to keep the country’s approval, with his ratings down to record lows. The latest CNBC poll out this week shows Biden’s approval rating at an abysmal 36 percent. That’s even worse than Trump’s lowest ratings ever, despite the former president weathering instability over Covid-19 and cultural upheaval after the death of George Floyd.

‘Really Unfortunate’: Humanitarian Group On Border Prepares For Migrant Wave


REPORTED BY JENNIE TAER | INVESTIGATIVE REPORTER | May 05, 2022

A nongovernmental organization in a small Texas town is working to keep up with large numbers of migrants in need of their support ahead of Title 42’s end and is hoping they can sustain their efforts. The Val Verde Border Humanitarian Coalition has had to exponentially increase its aid supplies and hopes it can continue to sustain what is already a large number of migrants seeking support after the pandemic health policy ends, the group’s director, Tiffany Burrow, told the Daily Caller News Foundation. Title 42, the Trump-era policy used for expedited expulsions of certain migrants during COVID-19, is set to end May 23, and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is preparing to accommodate 18,000 migrants each day when the order is lifted.

The organization, based out of Del Rio, Texas, is already seeing numbers similar to when it was helping handle the thousands of Haitian migrants who arrived last September, Burrow told the DCNF.

“So, for March, 5,028 [migrants] with 33 countries represented. Before I left, we were at 3,500, which is a pretty significant number for us. When we had the 16,000 underneath the bridge, that month was at 3,549. So, March was huge, and April was a significant month as well,” Burrow said.

Rather than having to obtain “cases “of water and supplies for the migrants, the group is now having to ensure they have “pallets” of supplies to handle the large number of migrants, Burrow said.

The faith-based organization helps facilitate travel for migrants released from Customs and Border Protection (CBP) custody, but doesn’t pay for their transport.

The number is not as high as the average numbers of migrants encountered in March and April, but it’s still enough to “knock … most field operations for several stations” out of commission, Anfinsen said.

“We are just handling it one day at a time, so some days we are able to be in the field, and other days we aren’t,” he added.

Burrow emphasized the element of danger migrants face during their journeys as a result of the cartels in Mexico and the trauma they carry once they get to her.

“There are more really unfortunate cases that are coming through. As long as cartels are involved, I think we are going to continue to see more situations like what we’re seeing right now,” she said.

Ann Coulter Op-ed: Brush Up on Your Voodoo!

Brush Up on Your Voodoo!

Great news! For the millions of U.S. immigrants who really wanted to immigrate to Haiti, but couldn’t get in … Guess what? The country you’re living in is about to become Haiti. This will also come as good news to the GOP’s top-dollar donors, whose sole political thought is: HOW DO WE WIN THE BLACK VOTE? (Next goal: Reverse the rotation of the Earth.)

Apparently, it’s absolutely humiliating for people who live in 100% white neighborhoods to belong to a party that appeals to white people. Consequently, for several decades now, the GOP has slobbered over Colin Powell, Alan Keyes, Condoleezza Rice, Allen West, Michael Steele, Herman Cain, Ben Carson, John James, Tim Scott, Candace Owens, Herschel Walker and so on.

I, too, slobbered over some of these fine black Republicans. But unlike the Masters of the Universe, I noticed, after the first half-dozen or so, that the GOP is never going to win more of the black vote. (The GOP’s donor class is dying of embarrassment right now, horrified that their party appeals to white people, aka “the only swing voters in the country.”)

For the last half-century, African Americans have given approximately 90% of their vote to the Democrats. (Hispanics: 70%; Asians: 70%) But the Hamptons-Manhattan-Palm Beach Brain Trust is focused like a laser beam on increasing the GOP’s minority vote. Somehow they’ve made billions of dollars, but cannot grasp, if their lives depended on it, that every election outcome is determined by the white vote.

QUIZ: What is the one demographic Trump lost in 2020 compared to 2016? Answer: White men.

[For more on Republican donors’ neurotic obsession with the black vote, see “Adios, America!,” Chapter 16, I Wrote This Chapter After Noticing How Stupid Rich People Are.]

With hordes of Haitians pouring across our border — because a certain lying conman didn’t build a wall — this weird compulsion of the donors will only get worse. Before Republican geniuses start proposing “enterprise zones” for Haitians, maybe they should take a look at Haiti.

Haitian President Francois “Papa Doc” Duvalier (1957-1971) began his regime by killing off or exiling the educated elite for being too light-skinned, then expropriated the peasants’ small parcels of farmland, leading, like night into day, to mass starvation. Result: Haitian peasants adored him! Even after a regime of mass murder and widespread starvation, followed by Duvalier maneuvering his teenaged son into the presidency, the Associated Press reported in 1980 that “the Duvalier family’s support comes from the dark-skinned peasants of the countryside.”

Downside: insane execution squads, malnutrition, illiteracy and chaos. Upside: Duvalier persecuted light-skinned Haitians and embraced voodoo.

GOP donors: What if we offer them school vouchers?

George Mason economics professor Garett Jones has a vitally important article posted on the Evonomics website right now titled, “Do Immigrants Import Their Economic Destiny?”

He asks whether immigrants bring cultural attitudes, religious beliefs, a work ethic, etc. that will kill “the golden goose of first-world prosperity.” Phrased otherwise, do immigrants make “the countries they move to a lot like the countries they came from?”

Ann’s answer: Duh.

Jones’ answer: Duh — with a lot more data and analysis.

He cites a study by economists Diego Comin, William Easterly and Erick Gong of Dartmouth, New York University and Middlebury College, respectively, published in the American Economic Journal, showing that the descendants of people who were the most technologically advanced in 1500 A.D. today live in countries vastly richer than countries populated by the descendants of those not as technologically advanced in 1500 A.D.

The New York Times described the results of the study thus: “As it turns out, technology in A.D. 1500 is an extraordinarily reliable predictor of wealth today.”

Forget 1500. How’s Haiti been doing for the last 50 years? A report by the Council on Foreign Relations describes Haiti as “the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere.” And that’s despite more than $13 billion in international aid in the past decade.

Let’s just hope they bring their Satan-worshipping voodoo! As Haitians worldwide descend on our country, it’s worth mentioning that their homeland is often described as “90% Catholic and 100% voodoo.”

While The New York Times (which hates our country and wants it destroyed) burbles giddily about Haitian voodoo — “a healing-based religion,” “an affirmation of national pride,” “a vibrant but gentler faith,” “equal parts happening and psychoanalysis” — other news outlets have produced vivid accounts of the actual ceremonies.

Quote:

“(A) group of men and women dressed in white circled a pole. … A few hours later, the drumbeat had intensified … A few of the women grabbed live chickens and whirled them in the air before ripping the heads off with their teeth. Then, with their hands clenched like claws and their chins dripping with blood, the women jumped up and down, screeching, ‘Ke-ke-ke, Ke-ke-ke.'” — Times-Picayune (New Orleans), 1994

Quote:

“Suddenly, the woman’s body jerks upright. She spins wildly, arms and legs flailing, and her eyes roll back in her head until only the whites show. Two men rush to her side and support her in their arms. A yellow kerchief slips off her head and her shiny, straightened hair tumbles down.

“Body rigid, muscles taut, she stomps the ground with her bare feet. She whips her head from side to side, eyes stretched wide, sweeping the room with a fierce gaze …” — The Ottawa Citizen, 2000

You can read more about these “vibrant” rituals in the book “Hostage to the Devil: The Possession and Exorcism of Five Contemporary Americans.” Or just wait for them to show up in your neighborhood.

If you thought moving 100,000 Somalians into Minnesota posed challenges to assimilation, that will be a pleasant dream compared to the multitudes of Haitians Biden is letting into the country right now.

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


Reported by PHIL SHIVER | September 28, 2021

Read more at https://www.theblaze.com/news/dhs-secretary-1-in-5-migrants-have-illness/

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.

Black Poverty Hits Record Low Under President Trump

President Donald Trump can claim credit for pushing poverty among black American adults to record lows, according to data in the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2018 economic report.

The good news is hidden deep in the 77-page report, Income and Poverty in the United States: 2018, which was released Tuesday, September 10. Table B5 on page 65 shows that poverty among married black families dropped to 18.8 percent, down from 20.2 percent in 2015 and 23.8 percent in 2007, which was the peak of the housing boom and bubble inflated by Congress and President George W. Bush’s terms.

  • Poverty among black female-headed families also dropped to 31.7 percent, down from 35.7 percent in 2015 and 39.7 percent in 2007.
  • Poverty among all black Americans dropped to 20.8 percent, down from 24.1 percent in 2015 and 24.5 percent in 2007

For comparison, black poverty is still somewhat higher than the poverty rate for all Americans, which is at 11.8 percent, and at 9.7 percent for all intact families and 26.8 percent for female-headed households.

The report does not suggest why the poverty rate is falling. But other data — including comments from industry CEOs — show that wages are gently rising as employers reluctantly begin to compete for employees in a low-immigration, tight labor economy.

Trump’s unprecedented combination of  “Hire American” and economic growth policies is helping create those wage gains nationwide. The growth policies pressure companies to hire more workers.

The “Hire American” policy suppresses the inflow of legal and illegal migrants and also blocks demands from businesses for special infusions of cheap foreign labor, such as extra refugees, asylum-seekers, visa workers, and legal immigrants. Trump’s low-immigration policies have prompted many progressives and Democrats to claim he is racist. But his growth and “Hire American” combination is pressuring companies to compete for Americans workers — including blacks and Latinos — by offering higher wages and better benefits.

One expected impact of the shortage is a growing number of non-white Americans who are being hired and are getting wage increases. The Washington Post reported September 9:

Economists say the minority hiring boom is explained mainly by a tight labor market that is forcing employers to look beyond their normal pool of candidates …
“Now there are more job opportunities, I think. I look for jobs that want English and Spanish speakers,” said [Milagros] Tasayco, who spends her mornings at the community center and her afternoons at a private day care. “My children say, ‘Wow, Mommy, you have two jobs!’ My husband is proud, too.”

The Census Bureau said men who work full time and year-round got an average earnings boost of 3.4 percent in 2018, pushing their median salaries up to $55,291, a 3.4 percent gain after adjusting for inflation. Women gained 3.3 percent in wages, to bring their median salaries to $45,097 for full time, year-round work.

Trump’s wage gains may mark a historic shift in the nation’s economy.

This growth is already visible as a rising line at the end of a Census Bureau chart, which shows the flat-lined wages between 1973 and 2018. The flat wages followed 25 years of rapid wage growth in a low-immigration economy between 1959 and 1973,

Immigration Numbers:

Each year, roughly four million young Americans join the workforce after graduating from high school or university. This total includes about 800,000 Americans who graduate with skilled degrees in business or health care, engineering or science, software, or statistics.

But the federal government then imports about 1.1 million legal immigrants and refreshes a resident population of about 1.5 million white-collar visa workers — including approximately one million H-1B workers and spouses — and about 500,000 blue-collar visa workers.

The government also prints out more than one million work permits for foreigners, it tolerates about eight million illegal workers, and it does not punish companies for employing the hundreds of thousands of illegal migrants who sneak across the border or overstay their legal visas each year.

This policy of inflating the labor supply boosts economic growth for investors because it transfers wages to investors and ensures that employers do not have to compete for American workers by offering higher wages and better working conditions.

This policy of flooding the market with cheap, foreign, white-collar graduates and blue-collar labor also shifts enormous wealth from young employees towards older investors, even as it also widens wealth gaps, reduces high-tech investment,  increases state and local tax burdens, reduces marriage rates, and hurts children’s schools and college educations.

The cheap-labor economic strategy also pushes Americans away from high-tech careers and sidelines millions of marginalized Americans, including many who are now struggling with fentanyl addictions.

The labor policy also moves business investment and wealth from the Heartland to the coastal cities, explodes rents and housing costs, undermines suburbia, shrivels real estate values in the Midwest, and rewards investors for creating low-tech, labor-intensive workplaces.

BREAKING: Migrant Mob Marching Through Mexico Gets BAD NEWS From Trump


Reported By | Wes Walker |

Anyone hoping the judicial ruling had green-lit a flood of asylum-seekers… can guess again. Whatever that judge may have ruled about amnesty only being available to lawful border crossers, Trump’s not finished yet.

Border security is still a huge priority for the President and he’s still got a few aces up his sleeve. It looks like he’s going to need it since the ‘caravan’ doesn’t look like it wants to work and play well with others.

The would-be border jumpers are already wearing out their welcome in Tijuana. And what are they planning to do next? They are reportedly planning a ‘human stampede’ to force their way into America.

Gee, that sounds like something good, well-adjusted, law-abiding citizens might do, doesn’t it?

We already know that criminal organizations there use events like this one where our defensive resources are otherwise occupied as cover for their own objectives.

And their objectives are a serious — lethal — problem, as various recent fentanyl busts will remind us.

As one example:

Fentanyl is one of the most lethal threats facing Maryland right now. As little as two milligrams of fentanyl can be a lethal dose, and the 20 kilograms of fentanyl seized in this case to date is enough to kill 10 million people — more than one and a half times the population of Maryland,” Maryland U.S. Attorney Robert K. Hur said in the release. “We are working with our partners to attack the sources of supply, as well as the street dealers who are committing the most violence in our neighborhoods.”

Fentanyl, which is about 50 times more powerful than heroin, is sometimes mixed with heroin by dealers to give users a more potent high.

The synthetic opioid is blamed for the epidemic of overdose deaths nationwide. Of Maryland’s 1,185 opioid overdoses in the first half of 2018, more than three-quarters involved fentanyl.

So, what can Trump do in the face of an angry mob demanding to be let in, and judges who seem hellbent on letting them?

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Thursday that the migrant caravans headed toward the U.S. won’t be allowed to enter, a prediction he made after talking to Mexico’s foreign secretary.

“I have been in close contact with Mexican Foreign Secretary Videgaray and it has been one week since Secretary Nielsen and I had a constructive meeting with Mexican Foreign Secretary-designate Marcelo Ebrard to discuss the migrant caravans,” Pompeo said in a statement issued on Thanksgiving.

“We have affirmed our shared commitment to addressing the current challenge,” he said. “The caravans will not be permitted to enter the United States. There are real dangers to the safety and human rights of migrants from those who would prey on them.”

How can that be enforced? There are two ways.

One is closing the entire border (using Article II enumerated Presidential prerogatives), the other is simply defending the border (using force, if required).

President Donald Trump said Thursday he has authorized American troops on the US-Mexico border to “use lethal force” if necessary against an approaching group of migrants while also threatening to close “the whole border.”

Trump, who was speaking with military members and reporters at Mar-a-Lago, also said there “certainly could” be a government shutdown over border wall funding in December.

“If they have to, they’re going to use lethal force. I’ve given the OK,” Trump said. “If they have to — I hope they don’t have to.”

“I have no choice,” Trump said, and, without providing evidence, added, “You’re dealing with a minimum of 500 serious criminals” and “rough people.”

Of course, building an effective border wall would have been far simpler than moving to these more extreme measures. But too many elected officials have been uninterested in doing so.

UN can play role in stopping U.S.-bound caravan


Reported by Chad Groening, Billy Davis (OneNewsNow.com) | Monday, October 22, 2018

Honduran caravanThe caravan of migrants currently traveling through Mexico on its way to the United States is a job for the United Nations, says the spokesman for a pro-border enforcement organization.

Mexico’s government has reportedly called on the United Nations to help with the 7,000-plus wave of Hondurans, whose numbers have nearly tripled as the group broke through border gates to enter Mexico over the weekend.

The group began with about 2,000 in the town of San Pedro Sula, Yahoo News reported.

Mehlman

Ira Mehlman, a spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform, or FAIR, says the UN High Commissioner for Refugees is well-suited to deal with the Hondurans who left their country determined to enter the U.S.

“If the people are legitimately fleeing persecution,” he tells OneNewsNow, “then the UNHCR can hear their cases and make some kind of determination before they reach some third country.”

"USA Border" signPresident Donald Trump has vowed to stop the migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border, threatening to cut off aid to the Central American countries that have failed to stop the illegal migration.

Late last week, Trump threatened to scrap the new U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade deal if Mexico failed to stop the caravan and, soon afterward, Mexico’s foreign affairs secretary made a personal request to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, The Washington Times reported.

It appears, the news story stated, that Mexico is seeking UN help to evaluate migrants “worthy of protection” from those who are “traditional illegal immigrants.”

Mehlman says the United Nations, for once, can play a “constructive role” in this border-crossing crisis.

GERMANY’S SCREWED: Look At What Angela Merkel NOW ‘Regrets’ – Send This To HILLARY Voters

Do you really MEAN that, Angela? Or are you just afraid that you might be unemployable if you are voted out of office?

The German premier admitted she could have been better prepared for the influx of migrants last year. She added if she knew how people wanted her to change her migrant policy she would consider it. And she admitted Germany had not been “world champions” in integrating migrants in the past, saying it would take time to integrate them.

“I myself have also relied on the Dublin agreement for a long time, that, simply speaking, removed the problem from Germany.

“That was not good. And if I could I would turn back time for many, many years to be able to better prepare myself with the entire government and all those responsible for this situation that hit us when we were rather unprepared in the late summer of 2015.

“Since then we have tried with all our might to shape, organise and regulate and much has already been achieved with this, very much. 

“Still, I am aware that many areas are still lacking.”…More Evidence

…Commenting on a recent poll showing 82 percent of voters wanted a change in her migrant policy, she added: “If I knew what change in policy people wanted, I would be ready to consider it and to talk about it.”

“But the poll does not give any advice on that,” she added.

A backlash against her migrant policy has raised questions about whether Merkel, Europe’s most powerful leader, will stand for a fourth term next year. Given a dearth of options in her party, however, she is still the most likely candidate.

What we DON’T read in those comments is that she would have REFUSED ENTRY to the million or so immigrants, we DON’T READ that they would have made temporary camps in the part of the world they came from where language, climate, and culture do not prove significant obstacles, we DON’T READ that any steps would be made to dissuade fake claimants from streaming into the continent.

Her only regret is that Germany didn’t absorb them well.

Which clearly means, she still doesn’t ‘Get’ it.different or same

What Christians are now being FORCED to do for Muslims makes my blood boil

Italian-Catholic-Praying-640x480

I often say, “when tolerance becomes a one way street, it leads to cultural suicide,” and it appears we have a very appalling example to share. It just never ceases to amaze me how we are so bent on political correctness when it comes to acquiescing our Judeo-Christian faith heritage before Islam. We have these “coexist” bumper stickers that should read “submit”…or even better, “Dhimmi.”

As reported by Breitbart.com, “Parishioners visiting a church in Italy were told they must “pray in silence” so as not to disturb African migrants being housed there. Some of the faithful hoping to practice their Christianity at the church of St. Anthony in Ventimiglia were surprised when they were told by Caritas volunteers they couldn’t recite the rosary and would instead have to pray in silence out of respect to migrants who are living there. Do you want

Caritas is ostensibly a Catholic charity, although much of its resources are spent on facilitating mass migration to Europe; the organization even boasts that it contributes to and seeks to influence European Union (EU) “asylum” policies. Caritas reports that they have been distributing 600 meals a day to migrants in Ventimiglia.

After one of the female parishioners requested that the migrants be taken to another church so that she could recite the rosary, the parish priest, Don Rito, appeared and accompanied her and the other visitors to another church.

The Northern Italian town of 55,000 people has recently been overwhelmed with hundreds of migrants. More than 50 Africans have been crossing into Ventimiglia every day, hoping that from there they will be able to enter France. The town’s mayor, Enrico Ioculano, has said that this is “an untenable situation”. Mr. Ioculano has admitted that Ventimiglia is struggling to meet the costs of the migrant influx.”

I just have to ask, where is Saudi Arabia in all of this? Apparently someone in the Saudi kingdom, perhaps the royal House of Saud family, had enough money to finance the 9-11 terrorists. So why don’t they have enough money to house and feed their Muslim brethren?AMEN

But here’s the real kicker: why are the parishioners of the church told to be silent and suppress their Christian worship? Why did it seem more accommodating to remove the parishioner and take her to another church? Not only are we watching a blatant invasion but also a complete surrender to those who should be so appreciative and seeking out the Lord God of those granting them food and shelter. What misguided sense of political correctness are we witnessing here?Islamanipulation

Let me make a simple parallel. Do any of you think if Christian migrants ended up in an Islamic country that imams, clerics, and mullahs would demand that the public call to worship over the muezzin be halted, silenced? Heck, just imagine what would happen here in the United States if some people demanded that the muezzins be silenced. There would be complete and total outrage and calls of Islamophobia and bigotry.

Who are these Caritas volunteers who are facilitating the violation of national sovereignty? And are they aware of the threats of Islamic jihadist groups, namely ISIS, to infiltrate the migrant masses?

There is nothing noble about this. It is instead highly disturbing. Surrendering one’s principles and values all for what, some inane sense of multiculturalism?

“Breitbart London has previously reported on churches across Europe where welcoming migrants has taken precedence over Christian worship. In Germany, an evangelical church stripped out pews, the altar, and pulpit as well as all symbols of Christianity when offering it as a new home for migrants — so as to make them feel “more welcome in their new home.”America are you paying attention

This is not about just stripping out pews and symbols of our Christian faith or silencing our prayer. This is about the abject subjugation and admittance of inferiority. When you invite someone into your home, you don’t remove your furniture and items near to your heart. However, as with the visit of the Iranian delegation to Italy and the Vatican, art pieces were covered so as not to offend. Have we become so ashamed of our culture and civilization?

Remember: when tolerance becomes a one-way street, it leads to cultural suicide — and just look for the comments of the slack-jawed surrender monkeys who will accuse me of promoting hate. It reflects a deranged mind that embraces cowardice and would rather exist on its knees, than stand on its feet.When tolerance becomes a one way street

And that, ladies and gents, is why Secretary of State John Kerry could thank the Iranians for taking care of our ten US Sailors who they put on their knees at gun point…sadly, the progressive socialist left prefers that position.

Not. Me.

Police set to enforce sharia law on Twitter

The following tweet, for example, was recently posted by police in Glasgow:

Here it comes. First jihad slaughter, then sharia enforcement by Western elites crippled with fear. And this is not just in the UK, the Netherlands or Scotland (Glasgow police posted the above tweet). Obama’s Department of Justice tried this very thing, but our organization held a protest that attracted thousands to stand against sharia restriction on our First Amendment rights. Free Speech Definition

In June 2013, we reported at Examiner:

Hundreds gathered at the Manchester-Coffee County Conference Center in Manchester, Tenn., Tuesday night, for an event sponsored by the American Muslim Advisory Council of Tennessee on free speech and social media. But the gathering turned into a protest of what many believe is a threatened crackdown on free speech on social media sites like Twitter and Facebook, Twitchy said.

Earlier, U.S. attorney Bill Killian said the meeting would serve as “an educational effort with civil rights laws as they play into freedom of religion and exercising freedom of religion” and to “inform the public what federal laws are in effect and what the consequences are.”

The meeting was the result of a controversial Facebook post by Coffee County Commissioner Barry West, who posted a picture of a man holding a shotgun with the caption, “How to wink at a Muslim.” West apologized for the photo in early May.

Now, it seems that speech critical of jihad and migrants committing crimes are attracting more attention from authorities than the individuals actually committing the crimes.

Geller wonders: “It is unclear as to whether or not sharing this article would constitute an ‘unnecessary’ post. But it may be worth finding out.”

After Rise in Sexual Assaults, This Group of Young Women Decided to Take Matters Into Their Own Hands

so america

With the rise in sexual offenses in Sweden, there has been a new trend. Women have begun to patrol areas known for mob attacks. These women feel it is their duty to protect younger girls. The uptick in attacks, mostly groping, has forced these women to action.

The Washington Times reports

A group of female 20-somethings in Kalmar, Sweden, have taken it upon themselves to patrol the local swimming pools in efforts to protect women from sexual attacks by migrant men.

“We are tired of men thinking they can come to Sweden and molest women when all we want is to be left in peace to swim without being felt up,” Siri Bernhardsson, an assistant nurse, told the Daily Mail. American women respond

Apparently in the town of Kalmar, migrant men are known to gather and hunt. They hunt young, isolated women. They charge at these women causing them to flee. Then they force them into corners of pools and buildings. This keeps their victims from escaping. In this situation, several men take groping liberties.

These horrible conditions have led a group of women to start the “Groping Guards.” Women who patrol known hunting grounds. Their purpose is to prevent attacks by young migrant gangs.

The Times continued

“Loads of women write to us and say that they have been groped by young men,” Ms. Bernhardsson said. “It happens at concerts, in train stations and in swimming pools. Most of the victims feel ashamed and don’t report it to the police. We know that there have been attacks in our swimming pool that have not been reported.”Same to us

The victims, not feeling that they will see any arrests, have shared their horrid experiences with Groping Guards. But, one of the main problems with confronting this crime is that the victims are not allowed to speak openly about the problem.

The Washington Times reports

“Everyone knows that these attacks started after a lot of immigrants came to Sweden and everyone knows who the perpetrators are, but we can’t really talk about the problem here in Sweden,’” Ms. Sjoberg said. “Integration is the most important issue we have to deal with in Sweden. But no one is talking about it.”cause of death

Just as we are learning in America, speaking the truth about the problem is racist. The difference is that in Sweden it is also a crime.

White House: Migrants’ Privacy Trump Americans’ Right To Know [VIDEO]

White House Correspondent

 

 

obama-border-is-open-378x257The White House won’t reveal where it is housing thousands of Central American juvenile migrants because their privacy rights trump Americans’ right to know what‘s happening in their neighborhoods, press secretary Josh Earnest declared July 16.

“The public does have a right to know what’s happening… [but] at the same time, there are privacy rights that are included in the law that this administration is committed to enforcing and following,” Earnest told Ed Henry, Fox News’ White House correspondent.

“We are not surprised in the least to see the Obama administration imitate the smugglers,” William Gheen, founder of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, told The Daily Caller. “This is how smuggling operations work, this is what the smuggler-in-chief wants — secret planes and secret buses full of illegal immigrants.”

obama- Marxist tyrantGOP governors and legislators are also highlighting the administration’s secrecy. “They don’t want the public to know what is really going on,” Nebraska Republican Rep. Lee Terry told Fox News.

Terry has introduced a bill that would require federal disclosure of details about housing. However, Senate Democrats will likely block the bill if it is passed by the House.

For months, the federal government has hidden details about the inflow of migrants, such as the number of people arriving in “family units,” the number of migrants who have been allowed to seek residency via the immigration courts, and their education levels.

no right

Officials have revealed that 57,000 Central American juvenile migrants have crossed the border since last October. Another 30,000 crossed in 2011 and 2012. Officials also expect up to 150,000 additional migrants to arrive in “family units.”

Most of the public blames Obama for the breakdown of border security and oppose his immigration policies.

Many Americans want the immigrants sent home and few want the foreign juveniles living in their community. For example, Pew reported July 16 that 53 percent of respondents in a poll want the juvenile migrants quickly sent home. Only 39 percent of respondents said the current policy should be followed.

Communities in California, Massachusetts, Virginia and Maryland, for example, have already blocked administration plans to house juveniles in their neighborhoods.

Protests in Murrieta, Calif. successfully blocked a convoy of three buses carrying a group of migrant adults and their children.

This weekend, a series of protests are being arranged by several groups, including the Americans for Legal Immigration PAC.

So far, the groups’ volunteers have arranged 300 street protests, said Gheen. “It is going viral, and we’re trying to add more events as rapidly asNational Day of Protest with date possible,” he told TheDC.

When asked how many people will turn out, he responded “we have no idea.”

Most of the border-crossing juveniles are temporarily housed by the Department of Health and Human Services before they are released to parents or relatives living in the United States.

The juveniles — few of whom speak English, and some of whom speak only Indian languages — are entitled to federal medical care, and to attend local schools, regardless of their impact on American kids.

They migrants come from countries with very high crime rates, partly because many youths are members of drug gangs, such as MS-13.

Progressives are bitterly criticizing the immigration protests.

“In places like Murrieta, California and Vassar, Michigan, we have seen ugly reminders of racism and hatred directed toward children,” said a July 15 statement by Richard Trumka, the pro-immigration head of the AFL-CIO union group.

“The spewing of nativist venom, the taking up of arms and the fear-mongering about crime and disease harken back to dark periods in our history and have no business taking place under the banner of our flag,” said Trumka.
