Texas To Start Busing Illegal Immigrants To Washington DC

Published

on

On Wednesday, Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced that his state will be busing illegal immigrants caught entering the state to Washington, D.C., to encourage the Biden administration to strengthen security along the southern border. The news comes shortly after the Biden administration announced it would be ending Title 42, a Trump-era border security policy.

“With the Biden administration ending Title 42 expulsions in May, Texas will be taking its own unprecedented actions this month to do what no state in America has ever done in the history of this country to better secure our state, as well as our nation,” Abbott said during a press conference.

“To help local officials whose communities are being overwhelmed with hordes of illegal immigrants who are being dropped off by the Biden administration, Texas is providing charter buses to send these illegal immigrants who have been dropped off by the Biden administration to Washington, D.C.,” Abbott announced. “We are sending them to the United States capital where the Biden administration will be able to more immediately address the needs of the people that they are allowing to come across our border.”

Abbott also announced “enhanced public safety inspection of vehicles” traveling from Mexico into Texas at ports of entry. This will “dramatically slow traffic from Mexico into Texas,” Abbott admitted, but he said the new process is necessary to curb the record high levels of illegal immigration on the southern border.

“Those two strategies are in addition to announcing the following actions to further deter illegal immigrants, including deploying boat blockades at appropriate regions in the Rio Grande River, deploying razor wire at low-water crossings in high traffic areas, creating container blockades to drive people away from low water crossings,” Abbott said.

Last week, the Biden administration announced that it would be ending Title 42, a Trump-era border security policy, in May. 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 crossing the southern border illegally 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.”

    Good for Gov. Abbott. All republican states should be sending there illegal’s to the blue states. They(blue States) want to let them in so badly, let them foot a bigger portion of the bill for keeping them here in the USA.

    Many of us have been advocating taking illegals to DC and dropping them off @ Capital steps!! Also, in front of Biden, Pelosi, and various Senator & Representatives homes. Watch how quickly immigration laws are strictly enforced and the Wall is finished!! CONGRATS TO GOVERNOR ABBOT👏 Now let’s see other governors step up!

    Think if Gov DeSantis is as smart as I think he is, he should do the same thing before they have a chance to establish a strong hold here in Florida. Send them to DELAWARE

    Great news from Texas!! And the right move. Hopefully they will bus them from DC to Delaware. Unfortunately American taxpayers will end up paying for all of it, but that’s OK we’re paying for their cell phones so this can be added to those costs

    Good for Governor Abbott and the state of Texas for taking action. Apparently the people in the WH who have round the clock protection and private security don’t care about the average American who pays their salaries. REMEMBER THIS WHEN ITS VOTING TIME

    Drop then off at the Capitol building with instructions on how to get to Pelosi’s and Schumer’s office. Take them to Joe Biden’s personal home and to any and all other leftist and radical’s home.

    Why not send the illegals back yo Mexico border? If they go to DC the government will just disburse them back into our states! More wasted resources…

    Why do we to be so blind that we cannot see.
    I have read the Declaration of Independence over and over
    As well as the constitution over and over
    As I read and understand the constitution
    We the people the citizens of America are the masters
    And that makes president on down as well as government
    Employees work for us
    Therefore in America we are 325 million strong
    When we wake up out of our deep sleep
    And realize this
    So what is to stop us from showing up at the border by the millions
    And dare the illegal aliens to cross over
    We have the right to defend our borders
    When the government fails to do there constructional duty
    And that also applies to Washingto DC
    Masses of citizens showing up to Washington DC
    Exerting our right to peacefully assemble and redress our greviences to elected officals
    Peaceful assembly not violent assemblely and if they refuse our demands we the people have a right and duty to remove them
    When they attempt to socialize and tryanize we the people
    By the way we are a republic and not a democracy
    A nation of laws which are absolute under our constitution
    As a Christian I do not advocate harm
    But realize that this is our country
    Jesus is our lord and savior not Washington DC
    To many people have sacrificed and died for our couny to not honor those sacrifices and deaths
    As George Washington said I would rather die standing on my feet than bowing my knees to tyranny
    Me to
    What about you

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

on

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.”
