Pentagon Refuses DHS Request For Troops At Border As Crisis Worsens

Border crisis

As the Biden administration braces for a massive surge in illegal immigration after lifting Title 42, a Trump-era border security policy, the Pentagon has denied a request from the Department of Homeland Security to place forces along the southern border but will provide “some” support.

“Last month, the Department of Homeland Security requested help as border officials brace for record-high numbers of encounters,” The New York Post reported. “Gen. Glen Vanherck, head of the North American Aerospace Defense Command, told the Senate Armed Service Committee that the department was planning to ‘provide additional capability or capacity based on the potential for additional immigration, or folks coming to the southwest border.’”

The Department of Defense confirmed the news on Wednesday, telling The New York Post that Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin has “authorized some DoD support.”

The support will be limited, however, and will not include “additional personnel sent for the monitoring mission” or guarding the border, according to The Post.

“On Saturday, Secretary Austin approved DoD support to DHS regarding the anticipated surge in irregular migration along the southwest border to help DHS execute its mission of providing appropriate humanitarian care to migrants in its custody,” Pentagon press secretary John Kirby said in a statement, adding that the support will include contracting 40 commercial buses to help transport illegal immigrants from the border to other places for processing.

“The Secretary also approved in principle providing land sites on DoD military installations for processing of migrants, and providing lodging for Federal employees supporting the mission, should it be needed,” he continued.

The news comes as the Department of Homeland Security works to prepare for a record high surge in illegal immigration due to the Biden administration’s decision to revoke Title 42. According to a DHS document obtained by ABC News, the end of Title 42 will result in as many as 18,000 migrants attempting to illegally cross the southern border each day.

“The DHS Office of Immigration Statistics (OIS) produced projections for post-Title 42 Southwest Border encounters describing low, medium, high, or very high encounter scenarios,” the document says. “These scenarios underpin planning assumptions that generate requirements which in turn drive operational execution. Based on these projections the SBCC is currently planning for 6,000, 12,000 (high) and 18,000 (very high) encounters per day.”

    As I’ve said before, states need to send our (their) own National Guardsmen to guard our (their) boarder’s.

SCOTUS Rules Federal Courts Do Not Have Power To Decide If Illegals Will Be Deported

Published

on

Supreme Court

On Monday, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that federal courts do not have the jurisdiction to decide whether noncitizens will be deported or allowed to stay in the country.

The case involved a couple from India — Pankajkumar Patel and his wife, Jyotsnaben, — who illegally entered the United States in the 1990s. They applied for “adjustment of status,” which would have made them both lawful permanent residents. United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) denied their request after finding out that Patel intentionally falsely claimed he was a United States citizen in a Georgia driver’s license application.

Justice Amy Coney Barrett wrote the majority opinion for The Court and Justice Neil Gorsuch joining the three leftist justices in dissent.

“Congress has comprehensively detailed the rules by which noncitizens may enter and live in the United States. When noncitizens violate those rules, Congress has provided procedures for their removal,” Barrett wrote. “At the same time, there is room for mercy: Congress has given the Attorney General power to grant relief from removal in certain circumstances.”

“Federal courts have a very limited role to play in this process,” Barrett continued. “With an exception for legal and constitutional questions, Congress has barred judicial review of the Attorney General’s decisions denying discretionary relief from removal. We must decide how far this bar extends—specifically, whether it precludes judicial review of factual findings that underlie a denial of relief. It does.”

The Court ruled that “Federal courts lack jurisdiction to review facts found as part of discretionary-relief proceedings.”

Texas AG Sues To Block Biden DHS Rule On Asylum Seekers At Border

Published

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton

As the border crisis continues, Texas is seeking to permanently block a new Biden administration rule that allows asylum seekers to avoid deportation at the border.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed the lawsuit on Thursday, requesting the rule be blocked and be declared unconstitutional.

“The last thing TX needs is Biden to make it easy for aliens to break into USA through false claims,” Paxton wrote in a tweet, along with a Fox News article obtaining the lawsuit. “We know what’ll happen when the rule goes into effect: new waves of illegals claiming ‘asylum.’ I’m suing to stop it.”

“Unsatisfied with releasing over 836,225 illegal aliens into the United States within fifteen months—not counting the number of unaccompanied alien children released separately, and aliens who have evaded apprehension—on March 29, 2022, the Defendants promulgated an Interim Final Rule to release even more illegal aliens into our country,” the lawsuit states. “The Interim Rule violates the Administrative Procedure Act (‘APA’), the Homeland Security Act, and the Immigration and Nationality Act (‘INA’), and it violates the Appointments Clause in Article II, Section 2, Clause 2 of the United States Constitution.”

“The State of Texas respectfully requests that this Court issue declaratory, preliminary, and permanent injunctive relief,” the lawsuit adds.

The news comes the same day that Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas told Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) that he did not know if some of the 42 illegal immigrants on the terrorism watch list that were in the custody of border officials had been released into the United States.

“Have any of the 42 illegal migrants on the terrorist watch list or no-fly list encountered on our southwest border been released into the United States?” Jordan asked.

“I will provide that data to you with respect to the disposition of each one,” Mayorkas responded. “I do not know the answer to your question.”
