Rep. Tlaib Calls For Defunding ICE And Other Border Security Agencies

Rashida Tlaib (D-MI)

As Democrat President Joe Biden’s border crisis worsens, far-left Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) called for defunding immigration security agencies during an interview made public this week.

“Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., in a video interview made public this week doubled down on her calls to defund key immigration agencies while warning against efforts by the Biden administration to increase technology at the border,” Fox News reported.

Fox News added, “Tlaib was asked about the push by the Biden administration to increase money spent on border technology for Customs and Border Protection (CBP). The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) border request includes $665 million in investments toward modernizing land ports of entry and $47 million to invest in detection capabilities in addition to investments in border surveillance technology.”

Tlaib was also asked how she could “turn the tide” at the congressional level on the funding for technologies that prevent activists worry “ultimately prevent migrants from entering the U.S.”

“Look, the simple answer to that question is we must eliminate funding for [Customs and Border Protection], [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] and their parent organization, [Department of Homeland Security],” Tlaib said.

The Biden administration already issued a Memorandum in mid-February that made the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) “functionally abolished,” according to the Washington Post. The following months illegal immigration levels repeatedly broke 20-year records as the drastically reduced deportation numbers signaled to illegal immigrants that they would be more likely to successfully remain in the United States.

The Washington Post reported in May, “Under new Biden administration rules curtailing immigration enforcement, ICE carried out fewer than 3,000 deportations last month, the lowest level on record. The agency’s 6,000 officers currently average one arrest every two months.”

“ICE under President Biden is an agency on probation,” the Washington Post continued. “The new administration has rejected calls from some Democrats to eliminate the agency entirely, but Biden has placed ICE deportation officers on a leash so tight that some say their work is being functionally abolished.”

A recent lawsuit over the Memorandum from ICE officials and Texas sheriffs against the Biden administration detailed the danger of restricting the ability of border security agencies from deporting illegal immigrants.

“Many extremely dangerous illegal aliens who would have been detained prior to the February 18 Memorandum consistent with federal statutes are now being released from custody,” the lawsuit said. It then cited examples of illegal immigrants who are remaining in the United States as a result of weakened border security agencies, including an illegal immigrant who has “been convicted of sexual battery against a child,” and another who “has been convicted of domestic violence, evading arrest, and multiple counts of driving under the influence.”

    These anti americans need to be brought before a Senate judiciary committee to explain their dangerous hostility towards our first responders,namely the police, and thereby putting the general public in great jeapordy.we are fighting a war against criminals, marauders and hooligans. We need all the help we can get.

    Tlaib is as traitorous as she is UGLY, and that’s saying something! It is amazing to me that she and her ilk are not thankful to even walk the streets of America; that she and her cohorts hog and try to decimate the first amendment, yet no one else dares to silence them. I despise them and everything they stand for. She, the raghead, AOC, amd the 4th’s last name—I can’t recall right now—despise everything about this wonderful country and would not leave if wild horses dragged them. I say GET THE HELL OUT, you disgraceful and corrupt “women”, and everyone else on the far left. We had a FABULOUS COUNTRY BEFORE YOU ALL GOT HERE AND BLATANTLY STOLE OUR 2020 ELECTION. All of you Democrats are evil and totally worthless! And some of you GOP politicians and RINOS can also get the hell out!!! WE are all sick and tired of your smiling crap/lies, and we know who you are, and are ashamed of you! Remember the song “Smiling Faces Tell Lies”? That applies to both Democrats and RINOS! We freedom fighters are fed up and disgusted with all of you ungrateful jerks!

    I suggest we DEFUND all of them!!!!! Get ’em out of OUR country and dare them to come back at the risk of—— well, you know!! That goes for puppet ol’ Joe. He isn’t capable of doing anything except eating his favorite ice cream and cookies. After all, someone else is running the government ( Susan Rice??? ), and ol’ Joe wanted so desperately to be president (he couldn’t possibly win on his own), so he made a deal with the Devil(s).

    The Dems are out to destroy all they can before the mid-terms. This is so obvious. Sleepy Joe is running nothing. What has happened in America is pure treachery and it is evil and intentional. The last point is especially obvious.

Texas Gov Greg Abbott Responds To SCOTUS Ruling On Remain In Mexico Policy

Published

Texas Governor Greg Abbott

On Thursday, Texas Governor Greg Abbott responded to the Supreme Court’s 5-4 ruling in Biden v. Texas that the Biden administration could end the former Trump administration’s Migrant Protection Protocol (MPP), also known as the “remain in Mexico” policy, which requires asylum seekers to stay in Mexico while they wait for a court hearing.

“The ruling in Biden v. Texas was the latest chapter in the tug-of-war over the policy, formally known as the Migrant Protection Protocol, since the Trump administration announced it in 2018,” SCOTUSblog explained. “The justices allowed the Trump administration to begin enforcing the policy after a federal district judge blocked it, and a few months later the justices agreed to review a ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit holding that the policy likely violated both federal immigration and international law. The justices dismissed that case last year, however, after the Biden administration attempted to end the policy.”

“Texas and Missouri challenged the Biden administration’s efforts to terminate the policy. After a federal district judge in Texas ordered the federal government to reinstate the policy, both the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit and the Supreme Court rejected requests from the Biden administration to temporarily put the district judge’s ruling on hold, prompting the government to revive the policy while litigation continued,” SCOTUSblog added. “The court on Thursday agreed with the Biden administration that ending MPP would not violate federal law.”

In response to the ruling, Governor Abbott warned that ending the policy would only encourage further illegal immigration amid the record-breaking border crisis, and pointed to the recent tragedy in which dozens of migrants were found dead in a semitruck abandoned near San Antonio as evidence of the dangers of illegal immigration.

“The Supreme Court’s decision upholding DHS’s termination of the Remain-in-Mexico policy will only embolden the Biden Administration’s open border policies,” Abbott said. “More than fifty people recently died in a trailer—people who were allowed to cross our border illegally because of President Biden’s policies. Reinstating and fully enforcing Remain-in-Mexico would deter thousands more migrants from making that deadly trek, and President Biden should take that simple step to secure the border because it is the only humane thing to do.”

Arizona Governor Signs Massive Border Security Bill

Border crisis

On Thursday, Republican Arizona Governor Doug Ducey signed a bill that will send hundreds of millions of dollars to strengthen security on his state’s border with Mexico, which comes as the illegal immigration crisis that originated under President Biden continues to worsen.

According to a press release from the governor’s office, the legislation, coupled with “targeted investments from the fiscal year 2023 budget, dedicates a record $564 million to help to secure our border with a physical barrier, address critical public safety staffing shortages, and modernize the technology and public safety equipment to target criminal activity and keep our citizens safe.”

The legislation will direct $335 million specifically to “construct and maintain a border fence, purchase or install border security technologies, and to pay associated administrative costs.”

“Inaction by President Joe Biden has led to the worst border crisis in over 20 years,” Governor Ducey said. “I’ve been outspoken about the impact this crisis has on Arizonans, our communities and migrants. We’ve taken numerous steps to help resolve the chaos, including deploying the Arizona National Guard, signing legislation to address human smuggling and transporting migrants on a voluntary basis to Washington, D.C. Ultimately, however, securing our border is the responsibility of the federal government… With this investment, we are giving our law enforcement professionals another critical resource they need to successfully do their jobs. We are standing up for the rule of law, and we are cementing Arizona’s commitment to securing our state and our entire nation.”

State Rep. John Kavanagh, who sponsored the legislation, said, “The number of migrant encounters has skyrocketed at our border, overwhelming law enforcement and the Border Patrol. Thanks to the absent federal government, our border is in chaos and out of control. We need more support and physical barriers. This is a reasonable investment in Arizona’s safety and security. I’m grateful for Governor Ducey’s leadership to take action and secure the border.”

The legislation comes as illegal immigration has reached the highest level ever recorded with nearly 240,000 migrants being encountered by border officials in May.

“There were an unprecedented 239,416 migrant encounters at the Southern border in May, CBP reports. This is the highest monthly total in DHS history, beating the record that was set the month before in April w/ 234,088,” Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin wrote on Twitter.
