Texas Gov. Abbott Responds To Biden Ending Border Security Policy

Published

on

Texas Governor Greg Abbott

Texas Governor Greg Abbott has released a statement responding to the Biden administration’s decision to revoke Title 42 – a Trump-era border security policy.

“President Biden’s open-border policies are an unmitigated disaster for national security,” the statement began. “His recklessness has forced the State of Texas to take unprecedented steps to fill the gaps—including deploying Texas Department of Public Safety troopers and over 10,000 Texas National Guard soldiers, jailing illegal immigrants who are charged with trespassing, and becoming the first state ever to build a wall to secure the border.”

“Instead of listening to the millions of Americans that his administration has endangered—and instead of enforcing immigration laws passed by Congress—President Biden has chosen to jeopardize the safety and security of those very Americans he swore to protect and defend by ending Title 42 expulsions,” it continued.

“Ending Title 42 expulsions will signal to cartels and migrants alike that our southern border is now wide open—inciting even more violence, more trafficking, and more lawlessness,” it added. “President Biden clearly has no intention to secure the border by faithfully executing Congress’ command to detain and deport illegal immigrants. His actions will only further endanger Texans, and the State of Texas must take even more unprecedented action to keep our communities safe by using any and all constitutional powers to protect its own territory.”

According to a Department of Homeland Security (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 per 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.”

    Putin must die. Biden has killed humanity. Democrats have brought hell to this earth. Trump acquitted in impeachment trials. Stupid dumb Democrats. Off with Psaki’s lying head.

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.”
