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

Published

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.

DeSantis to Legislate Ban Working With Contractors who Help Biden’s ‘Mass Human Smuggling Operation’

Published

on

Ron DeSantis

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis told Fox News’ The Ingraham Angle when it comes to helping illegal immigrants do things, well, illegally, he wants the perpetrators to have consequences.

Speaking specifically about contractors who are flying illegal immigrants around the country, DeSantis said, “They’ve done over 70 flights in the last six months, dump people here. And we had – a few weeks ago – one of those people that Biden dumped, ended up committing a murder in northeast Florida.”

“Our view is, if they’re going to be dumping, we want to be able to facilitate transfer to places like Delaware, and, so, we have $8 million in my new budget to be able to do that” he added. He is also looking to pass legislation which will ban contractors who work with the Biden administration on the flights from doing business with the state of Florida.

We are going to pass legislation that says if you are facilitating Biden’s policies—which is effectively a mass human smuggling operation—you are not going to be able to do business with the state of Florida or other local governments,” DeSantis said.

Fox News reports “DeSantis’s office has previously claimed that the Biden administration has flown migrants to Jacksonville, Fla., in order to ease crowding at border facilities.”

“On average, there’s 36 passengers on each of these flights. And that has been going on over the course of the summer through September,” Florida public safety czar Larry Keefe told the Washington Examiner in November.

Earlier this year, White House press secretary Jen Psaki confirmed a New York Post report that the administration was flying migrants from Texas to New York. Psaki said unaccompanied minors on those flights were “en route to their final destination to be reunified with their parents or vetted sponsor” reports Fox News.

Former DEA Agent who Conspired with Colombian Cartel Sentenced to 12 Years

Published

Jose Irizarry

Despite his attorney’s interesting defense that “when my client joined the DEA he was schooled in how to be corrupt” former agent Jose Irizarry has been sentenced. The former U.S. narcotics agent “used his badge to build a lavish lifestyle of expensive cars, parties on yachts and Tiffany jewels” reports NBC News.

Irizarry was sentenced to “more than 12 years in federal prison Thursday for conspiring to launder money with a Colombian cartel.” Irizarry admitted to his crimes, but the defense for his case was to blame his former colleagues at the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.

“When my client joined the DEA he was schooled in how to be corrupt, he was schooled in how to break the law” said his attorney Maria Dominguez in court. “In this alternate universe it became easier and less suspect to accept money and gifts” from criminal informants who worked with the narcotics agency.

In handing down her sentence Thursday, U.S. District Court Judge Charlene Honeywell addressed any failings by the DEA for its handling of corrupt agents by “the allure of easy money.” She said it also needed to be investigated.

“This has to stop…you were the one who got caught but it is apparent to this court that there are others.” NBC News reports:

Irizarry’s allegations underscore the porous oversight he received during his career, in which he was entrusted with the government’s use of front companies, shell bank accounts and couriers to combat international drug trafficking.

They also raise new questions about whether his colleagues in the Miami field office, where Irizarry’s criminal activity began, similarly abused the badge in their handling of confidential informants who every year move tens of millions of dollars in dirty money under the DEA’s supervision.

Dominguez in court filings revealed that since Irizarry’s arrest last year he has met with prosecutors for “endless hours” to provide information on the criminal activities of “fellow law-enforcement agents who initiated him in a life of crime.”

Honeywell recently sealed “sensitive” documents filed in the criminal case, saying their disclosure could potentially impede an ongoing criminal investigation, cause targets to flee and hinder cooperation from other witnesses. So far, other than Irizarry’s wife, Nathalia Gomez-Irizarry, and a Colombian customs worker, nobody else has been charged in the conspiracy.
