TX Atty General Suing Biden Administration for ‘Outright Disregard of the Public Health Crisis” at Border

Published

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is suing the Biden administration for disobeying his administration’s own COVID-19 rules. The administration has placed restrictions on all Americans and the state of Texas but has flagrantly allowed them to be disregarded when it comes to migrants congregating at the U.S. border.

In a released statement from Paxton’s office, he accuses the Biden administration of encouraging the spread of the novel coronavirus. “President Biden’s outright disregard of the public health crisis in Texas by welcoming and encouraging mass gatherings of illegal aliens is hypocritical and dangerous.”

Paxton’s office addressed not just the viral spread, but the economic and educational effects as well. “This reckless policy change stifles the reopening of the Texas economy at a time when businesses need it the most and when our children need to get back to in-person learning as soon as possible.”

Additionally, the Attorney General called out the lack of “law and order” saying it “must be immediately upheld and enforced to ensure the safety of our communities and the reopening of the strongest economy of the country.”

Paxton’s actions are the latest of many politicians criticizing the Biden-Harris administration for their disregard of the tragedies occurring at our southern border. Fox News reports “critics have accused Biden of inflaming the situation by rolling back Trump-era border protections like the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP).”

Additional critique has been of the Biden administration “not applying Title 42 public health protections to unaccompanied children – whose numbers have increased rapidly in recent months” reports Fox News. The result is the encouragement of “migrants to make the treacherous journey north and indicated to migrants that the border is open.”

    JB’s administration is full of hypocrisy- every time they turn around they’re doing or saying something two-faced. They can’t keep track of their lies- that’s why they get caught up in them so frequently. JB and crew only care about promoting themselves, their wallets, and their agenda. They’ve proven they don’t give a crap about America or Americans, or they would be keeping the borders closed until the pandemic is under control. Instead they’re putting our nation in jeopardy of thugs and drugs, along with turning us all into socialists. It’s time for the Right to come out swinging and put the TRUTH in everyone’s faces.

    It’s amazing how Americans can be locked down, forced to stay inside, forced to wear masks, and forced to surrender their way of life yet, any and everyone that can cross our border illegally is not tested, or vetted and let into the country to go anywhere. These same illegals are given the same benefits that American citizens are entitled to.
    Good for AG Paxton, I hope other AGs will join him and hold Biden legally accountable.

    This is a political ploy to get more votes for the false China Biden to steal more elections.

    He is absolutely right in sewing. They both need to be impeached for ruining the country. What they have done is against Humanity

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.
