Illegal immigration


Featured image With the expiration of Title 42 overnight, the invasion of the United States is on in full force today. The New York Post devotes a cover and related coverage to the story. I have exhausted my poor power to detract from the efforts of the Biden administration to facilitate the invasion. Here I want to borrow today’s Post editorial “Growing crisis proves: Biden’s ONLY priority is to admit ‘em all” »

A view from the drone

Featured image President Biden refuses to do his job. He has erased our southern border and facilitated the systematic invasion of our country by illegal aliens from all over the world. With the imminent expiration of Title 42, the invasion he has facilitated seems to be approaching a peak, but you never know. It can get worse. We look on as helpless bystanders. His excuses and lies grow increasingly absurd, if that »

Chaotic with a chance of meatballs

Featured image President Biden met with Speaker Kevin McCarthy and other congressional leaders on raising the debt limit. Biden appeared to give remarks and take a few questions following the meeting. It looked and sounded surreal. The White House has posted a transcript of Biden’s remarks here. If you didn’t stick around for the questions-and-answers you might have missed this highlight: I — we cut the deficit by $160 billion — billion »

Fighting Back on the Border

Featured image I meant to put these up yesterday. Department of Homeland Security head Alejandro Mayorkas testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday. Ted Cruz scorched him on the Biden’s administration politically-motivated erasure of our Southern border. Via RedState: Under questioning from Ted Cruz, Biden’s DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas refuses to say if there is a crisis on the border: Cruz: “1 word. 1 syllable. 3 letters. That's how someone answers »

Terrorists at the border

Featured image President Biden’s dissolution of our southern border on day 1 of his administration is a grave offense against the United States. Todd Bensman has followed the story as Senior National Security Fellow for the Center For Immigration Studies. He posts his work at his own site. He is the author, most recently, of Overrun: How Joe Biden Unleashed the Greatest Border Crisis in U.S. History, published by Post Hill Press/Bombardier »

What price Biden?

Featured image “What price Churchill?” was the question famously posed by the poster that appeared in the Strand in the last week of July 1939. The Daily Mirror asked: “The writing on the wall? This giant poster is causing considerable comment.” The poster was a plea for Churchill’s leadership. He was finally summoned to serve as Prime Minister upon Neville Chamberlain resignation on May 10, 1940. Churchill recalled in his history of »

Camp of the ain’ts

Featured image In her New York Post column Miranda Devine reports on “The migrant mess…ruining NYC’s midtown.” She identifies previously elite midtown hotels that are now housing illegal aliens at taxpayer expense: The city is putting illegals up ­indefinitely in Midtown’s former luxury hotels, providing three free hot meals a day, baby formula, free clothing, free legal services, free health care and free education. The cost is reportedly close to $100,000 per »

“Migrant” Melee at New York Hotel

Featured image This headline caught my eye: “Wild melee erupts at NYC migrant shelter as residents throwing bottles are stabbed.” The headline pretty well tells the story, but here is some more: A wild weekend melee broke out at a Manhattan hotel being used as a migrant shelter… “Migrant” has become code for illegal immigrant. …with three of its residents throwing bottles and then getting stabbed as payback, cops said Sunday. Brothers »

The Sanctuary Fraud

Featured image It is remarkable how little it took for Greg Abbott and Ron DeSantis to expose the entire “sanctuary city” edifice as a fraud. A busload or two of illegal immigrants and “sanctuary” turns into “NIMBY.” In perhaps the ultimate admission of the fatuity of sanctuary, New York Mayor Eric Adams traveled to El Paso and announced that “there is no room in New York” for any more immigrants. Guess they’ll »

El Paso goes Potemkin

Featured image Municipal authorities in El Paso did their best to protect Joe Biden from images of the disaster that has befallen their city thanks to the open border policies implemented by the Biden administration. It’s not that they didn’t want Biden to see what he has done. He knows perfectly well. They wanted to accommodate his desire to keep the underlying story under wraps from the media when they came to »

Abbott to Biden: Do Your Job

Featured image Joe Biden is finally visiting the southern border–a small slice of it, anyway, in El Paso. The town has been frantically cleaned up, Potemkin-style, for the president’s appearance. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott isn’t fooled. Today he hand-delivered to Biden the letter that is embedded below. Abbott’s letter calls on Biden to do his job. It chastises him for violating his constitutional duty to enforce the laws: All of this »

All is proceeding as foreseen

Featured image In my facetious new year’s predictions I foresaw that Kevin McCarthy would find a way to win election as Speaker of the House in January. I added that by February he would begin to wonder why he wanted the job so badly. I’m thinking he began the wondering last week, so might have missed on that one. I did not foresee that a fight might break out over the Speaker »

Bordering on nullity

Featured image President Biden let it be known first thing yesterday morning that he would visit El Paso this coming Sunday. The visit is notable for two reasons. First, it’s a rare weekend when Biden will not be on vacation. He has spent 40 percent of his term in office so far on vacation. At age 80, the guy needs his r & r. Second, for “El Paso” read “the border.” For »

Thrown under the omnibus

Featured image What are we to make of the $1.7 trillion omnibus spending bill that is speeding its way through Congress? If you check out FOX News every once in while, or keep up with Bill Melugin’s Twitter feed, you may have heard that we have something worse than a crisis at our southern border. Here is one “surprise” that we were probably not meant to find buried in the bill any »

Losing my shoes

Featured image My maternal grandparents were immigrants from Russia. Yiddish was their native language. They reverted to it whenever they didn’t want me to know what they were saying. It made me feel a little unwelcome. My grandfather was welcomed to the United States with a call-up to serve in the Army when the United States entered World War I. He saw battle in France and was proud of his service for »

Our border is gone

Featured image Watching the influx of illegal aliens crossing our southern border daily, a reasonable man might conclude that we are living out the fevered dreams of a dystopian novel. The United States has lost a basic aspect of sovereignty. Control over its borders is a relic of the past. In theory, the president of the United States is legally obligated to see that the laws are faithfully executed. In practice, however, »

Abbott Calls Out the Guard [Updated]

Featured image This could be huge news: Texas Governor Greg Abbott has summoned the National Guard and the Texas Department of Public Safety to repel the invasion of Texas from its southern border. Abbott invokes the Invasion Clauses of the U.S. and Texas Constitutions: I invoked the Invasion Clauses of the U.S. & Texas Constitutions to fully authorize Texas to take unprecedented measures to defend our state against an invasion. I'm using »
