A migrant An illegal who is seeking asylum in the United States admitted in an interview that aired Sunday that he would not have attempted to travel to the U.S. if Donald Trump were still president.In fact, the migrant illegal said specifically that he decided now was the right time to seek asylum here because of President Joe Biden.ABC News anchor Martha Raddatz recently spoke with a Brazilian man — just one of the tens of thousands of migrants illegals who are traveling to the U.S. in search of asylum — who admitted that Biden's presidency was a motivating factor for coming to America."Would you have tried to do this when Donald Trump was president?" Raddatz asked."Definitely not. Definitely. We have a chance, you know. The same environment that's been going on today wasn't there last year," the man responded. "We used to watch the news and I definitely wouldn't do this."Raddatz followed up," So did you come here because Joe Biden was elected president?""Basically, basically," the man said. "The main thing was the violence in my country. And the second thing, I think, was Joe Biden."

@VivekGRamaswamyYou can’t be American if your first act of entering the country is a lawbreaking one. That’s not racist. That’s not xenophobic. We are a nation built on the rule of law. Secure the border and eliminate lottery-based immigration in favor of meritocratic admission. Do not apologize for it.
New York Mayor Eric Adams, a longtime “sanctuary city advocate,” had a near meltdown yesterday when he told commissioners in no uncertain terms that illegal immigrants would destroy New York City.At least they’re not wearing masks.https://twitter.com/nycphotog/status/1699607841483465122 Texans could not be reached for comment, because they were too busy fending off even more illegal aliens than New York City. But New York has a painful, monkeypox-like problem the Texans don’t have. I will explain.First, the Big Apple’s pro-jab mayor said for the first time in his life, he has finally confronted a tragic-comic problem that he can’t handle:
“Let me tell you something, New Yorkers. Never in my life have I had a problem that I didn’t see an ending to. I don’t see an ending to this. I don’t see an ending to this. This issue will destroy New York City. DESTROY New York City. We getting TEN THOUSAND MIGRANTS a month. One time we were just getting Venezuela, now we getting Ecuador, now we getting Russian-speaking coming through Mexico, now we getting Western Africa, now we getting people from all over the globe have made their minds up that they gonna come through the southern part of the border and come to New York City.And everybody’s saying it’s New York City’s problem.We have a 12-billion dollar deficit that we’re going to have to cut every service in this City is going to be impacted. All of us.”Haha! Citizens, who pay the extraordinarily-high taxes in the City, won’t be getting services. Illegal aliens will be getting the services. Checkmate!The big problem is that New York City once passed a law requiring it to provide shelter and services to illegal aliens, as part of its celebrated “sanctuary city” program. Adams has already been to court several times recently trying to thwart the rule, but has gone down in flames every single time. The courts are saying, don’t put this on us, you need to change that law.

I don't see much trouble getting under those buoys unless you can't swim.

"You're free": Watch Border Patrol agents allow hundreds of illegal immigrants to just walk right into San Diego
HOLBROOK, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- A sheriff’s deputy helped save a child in danger of human trafficking in northern Arizona earlier this month.On Sept. 8, a Navajo County deputy pulled over 35-year-old Julio Ramirez-Felipe on I-40 near Winslow. Authorities say Ramirez-Felipe, a California resident, was traveling with a young boy unrelated to him. During the stop, the deputy noticed signs of human trafficking and saw the child was in danger. Ramirez-Felipe was arrested and booked into Navajo County jail for allegedly assisting in a human smuggling organization.“I would like to commend my deputy for his exemplary investigative work on this traffic stop. Because of this simple traffic stop and furtherance of his investigation, an innocent child was rescued from danger. Human trafficking is a real issue that affects too many children. Thank you to the men and women who combat these issues every day,” said Navajo County Sheriff David Clouse.
Yesterday, in a massively-important story completely embargoed by Establishment Media, probably because they haven’t gotten their narrative orders from the White House yet, Governor Greg Abbott of Texas made history by finally doing what the state’s conservatives have long been begging for:Governor Abbott formally declared a State of Invasion at the border.It’s a big deal, maybe even ‘yuge,’ as Trump would say. In a public letter in 2022 addressed to Joe Biden, Governor Abbott declared the federal government had failed to protect Texas from invasion, so the state invoked Article I, Section 10, Clause 3 of the Constitution. As Abbott put it, in his historic letter:The subtext of Abbott’s letter was literally a declaration of war. Article I, § 10, Clause 3 says that states shall not “engage in war” without the consent of Congress unless actually invaded:No State shall, without the Consent of Congress, lay any Duty of Tonnage, keep Troops, or Ships of War in time of Peace, enter into any Agreement or Compact with another State, or with a foreign Power, or engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay.For at least a year that I can remember, Texas conservatives have been begging Abbott to invoke Clause I(10)(3) and take action. Abbott made the declaration but was slower to act. One sees both sides of the timing of making such a career-defining political decision. Abbott took the longer approach, and built up political armor by first sending migrants to blue places like Chicago and New York, which are also now buckling under the strain and more importantly, are complaining loudly and publicly.It’s hard to understate how big a deal this is. Texas is going to war … but against what enemy? In his letter, Abbott smartly identified the cartels. In a tweet yesterday, Abbott showed his move was carefully and long-planned: at the time of the announcement, Texas has now already deployed the National Guard and started building containment measures like a border wall.By moving fast, Texas can’t now be stopped before they begin by an emergency temporary injunction from an Administration-friendly judge. It’s too late. Yesterday Abbott tweeted:Texas’s war might be with other enemies than just the cartels, Around 6pm last week, Governor Abbott tweeted that federal agents were removing Texas’ newly-installed razor wire and were actively helping migrants cross the barriers into Texas.CLIP: Federal agents remove razor wire from the Texas border and help migrants cross the border (1:37).One suspects the Administration’s lawyers are probably frantically drafting right now. Biden will likely file an emergency lawsuit trying to stop Texas from defending itself. The rhetoric will be hot as mustard. I also expect Woke Media to soon shift to covering Texas’s wartime “human rights abuses.” Oh, the humanity!It’s a developing story. Stay tuned.
Just like former Sanctuary City fan and Mayor Eric Adams, New York’s replacement Governor Kathy Hochul is experiencing this week a newfound appreciation for little things like borders and immigration controls and stuff. Yesterday, Hochul told a CNN anchor that New York’s shelter law was only meant for homeless aids patients and displaced families. “Never,” she said, “was it envisioned to be an unlimited, universal right or obligation on the city to have to house literally the entire world.” ...In any event, the reporter asked Hochul, “Some people have said that New York’s legal right, its mandate to provide shelter, is a draw for people to come here. And they’ve called for it to be rescinded. Would you support that?” Governor Hochul immediately replied, “Yes, I would.”Of course, talk is cheap. It’s one thing to say you would support rescinding New York City’s mandatory shelter law, it’s another thing to do something about it. ...According to Gothamist, over 110,000 illegal aliens roosted in the city over the last 12 months, and around 60,000 are still living in the city’s shelter system — with an annual price tag of billions of dollars, according to New York City officials.I am reading between the lines, but the unstated story seems to be that a certain minimum critical mass of illegal aliens has been reached in New York City, and now those aliens who’ve figured out how the game works are telling their friends and relatives about New York’s unlimited shelter law, which in turn is increasing arrivals, who are telling their friends and relatives, and so on. So the problem is spiraling out of control like a death tornado.In other words, at this point it’s not just a few buses from Texas or a few flights from Florida. The aliens know now.The Governor showed up in related news, when the New York Times ran a connected story yesterday headlined, “U.S. Will Allow Nearly 500,000 Venezuelan Migrants to Work Legally.” The sub-headline explained: “The move, announced late Wednesday, followed intense lobbying by New York Democrats before and during President Biden’s visit to New York City this week.” Here’s how the Times described the rationale for letting half a million illegal aliens obtain green cards:"In an unusual break with a president of their party, the New York Democrats had argued that the city’s social safety net would tear under the weight of more than 110,000 recently arrived migrants unless they were allowed to work and support themselves more quickly."Democrats hope that if the illegal aliens can work more easily, they’ll move out of free city housing. But as usual, democrats ignore normal human behavior and economic incentives. Obviously, the aliens will work and stay in free city housing.On the other hand, never let a good crisis go to waste. Am I right?
As McCarthy seems to be saying, and this is the point, or the res gestae, we are currently paying billions and billions and billions and throwing our entire arsenal — except maybe for our fleet of high-tech, semi-autonomous F35 fighter jets, which a military spokesman insisted were not “lost,” just “misplaced,” and will be found any day now, probably — apart from those, we’re doing everything humanly possible to STOP THE INVASION IN UKRAINE.Get it?What about stopping the invasion a little closer to home? Like, RIGHT DOWN THERE. You know. The UNITED STATES’s border. Why don’t we send some Bradley “fighting vehicles” and Leopard tanks and cluster mines or whatever else we’re tossing down the Eastern European toilet down to the SOUTHERN BORDER instead? I mean, instead of paying corrupt Ukrainian oligarchic Nazis to fight Russians, why don’t we pay the Cartels to close OUR border? Seriously, what’s the difference?Or instead of blowing up underwater Russian pipelines, how about we blow up the pipeline through Central America? Instead of sanctioning Lithuanians for selling chicken coops to Russian farmers, how about we sanction Mexico for invading the U.S.? Instead of destroying the Kerch Bridge between Russia and the Crimean Peninsula, how about we destroy the human bridge into America?I could do this all day.Good luck, Kevin. Speaker McCarthy earns a lot of well-deserved criticism, but focusing Congress on this issue was a solid move. Your move, deep state.
Perhaps growing tired of all the Establishment Media gaslighting, Elon decided I’ll just go down there and see for myself. He filmed his border experience using Twitter’s live video feature and uploaded everything. At one point in his discussion with local officials, Elon — doing much better math this time — calculated that the annual number of illegals entering at that one location exceeds the population of the State of Wisconsin.One local sheriff informed Elon that his county is geographically the size of a medium-sized state. But his entire law enforcement workforce is only 12 people, with only two deputies on duty at any one time. In other words, he’s totally outnumbered. It’s like the Alamo, but with only two Texans inside.Meanwhile, around the same time as Elon was posting videos from his border trip, CNN also ran a heartwarming border story. The Establishment News network interviewed a nice young undocumented Colombian lady named Angelina who crossed the border into El Paso last year. An entrepreneur at heart, she began hooking right away, and in just one year she now rents a small building from a Bolivian fentanyl dealer and runs her own squad of six girls, providing crucial resume enhancement for two teens who can’t find work anywhere else. The hardworking bunch of gals recently added tattooing to their services menu, and Angelina told CNN that she was working very hard to get the proper licenses and everything, but the State of Texas is muy defícil to work with, always asking for papers and stuff. After Angelina shared her famous spicy burríto recipe, CNN transitioned into a breaking story exposing all the red tape at Texas’s Department of Business regulation.(Okay, I made that last part up, but you get the idea.)
