Mexico: Shelter for Muslim Migrants Opens at U.S. Border, in Tijuana

By Jihad Watch

What could possibly go wrong? Well, so far this year, 50 people on the terror watch list have been apprehended crossing the border. Celebrate diversity!

Shelter for Muslim migrants opens in Tijuana

by Salvador Rivera, Border Report, June 20, 2022:

TIJUANA (Border Report) — A shelter for Muslim migrants opened over the weekend in Tijuana, the first of its kind in all of Mexico.

The Latino Muslim Foundation, based in San Diego and Tijuana, raised half a million dollars to make the facility a reality….

“Being on one of the largest borders in the world, this is a source of pride that we’re here able to help people arriving at the border,” said Sonia Tinico, president of the Latino Muslim Foundation. “We’ll be able to provide shelter for Muslims who are seeking to get to the U.S. or Canada.”

Tinico said migrants will be offered housing, medical care, meals and legal services inside the 8,000-square-foot facility.

“They can pray here and have halal meals that don’t have pork since we don’t eat pork,” she said. “We’ll have separate areas for women and men.”

Tinico also stated the migrants will be offered psychological and dental assistance along with workshops to help asylum-seekers get familiar with North American culture and customs….

Senate Republicans caving on gun control & amnesty for illegals to a party with a -30 Presidential Approval Index rating! thumbnail

Senate Republicans caving on gun control & amnesty for illegals to a party with a -30 Presidential Approval Index rating!

By Dr. Rich Swier

The below tweet remined us of these lyrics to a song by Stealer Wheel, “Clowns to the left of me. Jokers to the right.” It seems like déjà vu all over again.

Senate Republicans are undermining an almost certain Red Wave in November by selling out on guns and amnesty for illegals. Only a stupid party would allow this to happen. They need to be stopped.

— Charlie Kirk (@charliekirk11) June 22, 2022

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll.  On Tuesday, June 21st, 2022 the Biden Approval Index History  shows that 40% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Biden’s job performance. Fifty-nine percent (59%) disapprove. The latest figures include 19% who Strongly Approve of the job Biden is doing and 49% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -30.

QUESTION:  Why are Senate republicans caving on gun rights and giving illegal aliens amnesty?

ANSWER: They aren’t big “R” republicans.

President Ronald Reagan during his 1966 campaign for Governor of California offered what he called the 11th Commandment. The 11th Commandment reads: Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican.

Well, it seems that the time is now to violate Reagans’ 11th Commandment.

The Bottom Line

In our June 9th, 2022 column “It’s not that they have an ‘R’ behind their names it’s how they actually vote that counts!” we wrote:

We have learned over time that politicians who claim to be a republican once elected don’t vote like a big “R” Republican. The Florida News Report editorial board got this message and showed how little “r’s” say one thing then do the exactly the opposite when introducing or voting on legislation.

Florida News Report editorial board explains that the real election day is the mid-term primaries. The Editorial Board noted,

Republican voters only get one shot at purging the Republican Party of RINOs each election year and that date comes early – the August Primary election.

But most Republican voters don’t participate…. the Republican voter turnout is only around 30%. It is on August 23rd Republican voters decide the direction of the party when they choose between:

  • A RINO Establishment candidate who doesn’t adhere to the Republican Party Platform 


  • A Republican constitutional conservative candidate who embraces the Republican Party Platform

Do you have some Republican friends you can influence to actually go vote on August 23rd?

Do it.

Do it like your life depends on it. Because it does. When elected Republicans pass Democrat policies, your rights are immediately reduced. From gun rights to Covid restrictions, this is no joke.

August 23rd is your Election Day. 

It’s the primaries stupid! Get out and vote for a “BIG Rs” on August 23rd!

The News from the Border Is Not Good thumbnail

The News from the Border Is Not Good

By The Daily Skirmish – Liberato.US

Today, I get you caught up on the latest news from Joe Biden’s border crisis.  It’s not good.

Fifteen people on the terrorist watch list were caught trying to cross the southern border in May, a surprising record number.   That makes 50 so far this year, more than the total number apprehended in the last five years combined.  We wouldn’t know about this if Republican lawmakers hadn’t pressured the Biden administration to resume publishing the numbers.  And these are only the ones we know about.  We don’t know how many terrorists got away.  Border patrol agents unofficially put the total number of ‘got-aways’ at more than a million since Joe Biden took office.  It stands to reason more than a few of those are on the terrorist watch list.

Another record was set in May.  Border patrol agents encountered nearly 240,000 illegal aliens at the southern border last month, topping the previous record encountered in April.   More than 95,000 of them were released into the U.S.   This brings the total number of illegal aliens the Biden administration has deliberately released into the interior of the country to more than a million.   Woke math problem for you:  if a million illegal aliens got away and another million were deliberately released into the interior, how long will it be before Kamala Harris solves the root causes of illegal immigration?

These staggering numbers are overwhelming border agents who are now having to spend a lot of time on paperwork and babysitting.  This means that drug seizures are down and it’s “a field day for human traffickers.”

As you can see, all of this is going in the wrong direction.  The Biden administration’s answer is to speed up asylum claims, not close the border.   Another standard Biden maneuver is to cover it all up.  Not only did the administration try to hide the ball on the number of potential terrorists coming across, it continues to stonewall a congressional investigation into the number of unaccompanied alien children taken to New York last year.  It’s been eight months and congressional investigators can’t get any answers.  Other researchers can’t get the answers they want about criminal aliens and traffickers because the Biden administration has clammed up on those subjects, as well.

All of this leaves state officials to try to put a finger in the dike.  Texas and Arizona combined have so far sent more than 90 busloads of border crossers – more than 3,000 in all – to Washington, D.C. to make them the Biden administration’s problem.   However, as I reported to you previously [5/26/22], left-wing volunteer groups are picking up the slack and the administration isn’t feeling any pain.

As I heard an immigration expert say on the radio, Joe Biden’s open borders policies could be reversed tomorrow and we’d still be dealing with the problems these policies have caused for years to come.

Republican Mayra Flores Wins South Texas District Democrats Carried By 13 Points In 2020 thumbnail

Republican Mayra Flores Wins South Texas District Democrats Carried By 13 Points In 2020

By The Daily Caller

Republican Mayra Flores, a first-time candidate for elected office, won the special election in Texas’ 34th District to complete the term of former Democratic Rep. Filemon Vela, who resigned in March.

With more than 70% of votes counted, Flores held 51% support, and Democrat Dan Sanchez garnered 43.5%. Despite the presence of two other candidates on the ballot, one Democrat and one Republican, Flores was able to avoid a run-off. Several elections analysts called the race shortly after 10 pm Eastern Time.

I’ve seen enough: Mayra Flores (R) defeats Dan Sanchez (D) in the #TX34 special election, flipping an 84% Hispanic Rio Grande Valley seat red.

— Dave Wasserman (@Redistrict) June 15, 2022

The special election was spurred on by Vela’s resignation on March 31. The five-term moderate had announced in March 2021 that he would not seek re-election in 2022, and left the lower chamber on March 31 to take a job at the Washington, DC-based corporate law firm Akin Gump.

Vela won re-election by 13.6% in 2020, and Joe Biden won the district by four points.

Flores, who received endorsements from House GOP Conference Chairwoman Elise Stefanik and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, won the primary on March 1 to run in November’s general election against Democratic Rep. Vicente Gonzalez. Gonzalez will attempt to switch districts from the 15th, which was redistricted into a toss-up seat. That new 34th District will lean 17 points towards the Democrats, according to FiveThirtyEight.

Elected Democrats and party strategists have repeatedly expressed concern that Hispanic and Latino voters are swinging towards the Republican Party. Biden’s approval rating with Hispanic and Latino voters sits in the mid-20s, several recent polls have shown, the worst of any ethnic group. The 34th District is 85% Hispanic, the U.S. Census found in 2020, one of the most Hispanic congressional seats in the country.

The Republican National Committee and GOP members of Congress have expanded outreach in Hispanic and Latino communities. House Republicans announced the Hispanic Leadership Trust in May, and co-chairman and Texas Rep. Tony Gonzalez campaigned for Flores. The RNC opened several Hispanic outreach centers in South Texas in 2021.

Biden Seeks End to Title 42 While Closing Federal Training Center Because of COVID thumbnail

Biden Seeks End to Title 42 While Closing Federal Training Center Because of COVID

By Michael Cutler

President Abraham Lincoln’s historic Gettysburg Address concluded with this powerful and aspirational excerpt, “…that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

It is hard to equate the actions of the current administration with any desire to truly provide a government of the people, by the people and for the people, except perhaps for the people who profit from the immorally bankrupt and corrupt polices of the Biden administration.

America’s borders and immigration laws represent our nation’s first line of defense and last line of defense against aliens whose presence is a threat to national security, public safety and public health. America’s borders and immigration laws are also supposed to protect Americans’ jobs and wages.

In point of fact, a review of a section of law that is an integral part of the Immigration and Nationality Act, 8 U.S. Code § 1182 (Inadmissible Aliens) will irrevocably prove my point.

Further substantiation of the nexus between border security and national security can be found in the official report, “9/11 and Terrorist Travel – Staff Report of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States.” This report focused specifically on the ability of the terrorists to travel around the world, enter the United States, and ultimately embed themselves in the country as they went about preparing to carry out a deadly attack.

The preface of this report begins with the following paragraph:

It is perhaps obvious to state that terrorists cannot plan and carry out attacks in the United States if they are unable to enter the country. Yet prior to September 11, while there were efforts to enhance border security, no agency of the U.S. government thought of border security as a tool in the counterterrorism arsenal. Indeed, even after 19 hijackers demonstrated the relative ease of obtaining a U.S. visa and gaining admission into the United States, border security still is not considered a cornerstone of national security policy. We believe, for reasons we discuss in the following pages, that it must be made one.

However, the Biden administration has, since its first day in office, sought to dismantle our borders and gut immigration law enforcement without explaining how these actions are in the best interests of America or Americans.

The most recent effort of the Biden administration to encourage a human tsunami of illegal aliens to flood the U.S. involved its plan to have the Center for Disease Control (CDC) terminate Title 42 on May 23, 2022. This strategy was the focus of my recent article, “Title 42 and Chaos on the Border.”

Fortunately, a federal judge blocked Biden from ending Title 42 last month.

Here is where things get really interesting. Title 42 was implemented by the Trump administration to help to discourage massive illegal immigration that would pose a threat to the United States as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and required implementation by the CDC.

Under the Biden administration, the CDC was requested to terminate Title 42.

However, on May 23 – the very same day that the CDC had planned to terminate Title 42 – the Brunswick News reported, “FLETC shutdown, rising cases show pandemic isn’t over.”

(FLETC is an acorn for the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center. This is the facility where many federal agencies train their law enforcement personnel, both when they are initially hired and while in-service.)

Here is an excerpt from the report:

Even though many of us have returned to a life that is closer to pre-pandemic times, the virus still lingers over our society. We got a reminder of that this week at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center.

On Friday, FLETC announced it was suspending training operations at the center due to a rise in COVID-19 cases. FLETC had 168 positive cases of COVID-19 as of Thursday, according to Alan Shefveland, branch chief, FLETC public affairs.

When training was halted, there were 2,853 students representing 68 agencies on the grounds. Approximately 500 are remaining on base, though that number could change. FLETC housed 2,044 students at the center with 414 staying off center.

FLETC’s abrupt training suspension came just a few days after The News reported COVID rates were rising across Georgia again. Ginger Heidel, risk communicator for the Coastal Health District, told The News that the daily average of new cases rose by almost 200% in the last month. Heidel also said the health district, which covers an eight-county area including Glynn, McIntosh and Camden, is seeing similar increases locally.

Nevertheless, the Biden administration announced plans to appeal the federal court’s ruling on rolling back Title 42.

The Biden’s administration’s immigration policies are undermining national security, public safety and public health, and it is clear that Biden could not care less.

Biden’s utter lack of concern for the wellbeing of America and Americans is, to borrow a term, sick, and not consistent with providing for Americans or a creating government that lives up to President Lincoln’s aspirational goals for citizens of the United States.

EXCLUSIVE: Immigrants Travel To Schools With Warning: Socialism Is Deadly thumbnail

EXCLUSIVE: Immigrants Travel To Schools With Warning: Socialism Is Deadly

By The Daily Caller

Immigrants who have fled socialist countries are travelling to schools across the U.S. for free under a new program to teach students about the dangers of socialism.

The Dissident Project launched Monday with speakers set to “travel to high schools across the U.S. to speak to students about authoritarian socialism” at no cost to the schools, Dissident Project founder and Venezuelan-born economist Daniel Di Martino told the Daily Caller.

The speakers include activists from Venezuela, Cuba, Hong Kong and North Korea who have immigrated to the U.S. and are dedicated to speaking about how socialism has destroyed their countries.

Grace Jo, a speaker from North Korea, came to the U.S. after almost starving “to death as a child” under the country’s socialist regime. Two of her brothers and her father died from starvation, according to the Dissident Project’s website.

“All of us Dissident Project speakers came to America for freedom, and it is our duty to preserve that love for freedom among the youngest generation. That’s why we’re stepping up and doing our part so Americans never forget that this is an exceptional nation, that free enterprise and the rule of law made it great and that socialism can destroy it all like it did in our native countries,” Di Martino said.

— Dissident Project (@DissidentProj) June 3, 2022

The project was inspired by Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ legislation recognizing a statewide “Victims of Communism Day” annually on Nov. 7 and requiring Florida schools to teach students about “the evils of communism.”

“Honoring the people that have fallen victim to communist regimes and teaching our students about those atrocities is the best way to ensure that history does not repeat itself,” DeSantis said in a statement about the bill in May.

Starting in the 2023-2024 school year, students in Florida will be mandated to receive at least 45 minutes of instruction in their required U.S. Government class about the evils of communism. Potential topics to cover include “Mao Zedong and the Cultural Revolution, Joseph Stalin and the Soviet System, Fidel Castro and the Cuban Revolution, Vladimir Lenin and the Russian Revolution, Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge, and Nicolás Maduro and the Chavismo movement,” according to the bill.

Di Martino began the Dissident Project “after learning about Florida’s new curriculum.”

“I thought we needed a unified platform where schools could find immigrants from socialist countries to speak there at no cost to them so we could reach every single American,” he said.

The Dissident Project will focus its efforts in speaking to school districts in Florida, given DeSantis’ legislation, but will also advertise the opportunity to teachers across the country, Di Martino concluded. Teachers who wish to host a speaker can do so for free by filling out a form.

Our Open Borders Crisis thumbnail

Our Open Borders Crisis

By Jerry Newcombe

Biden’s border crisis is dangerous enough already, and it may soon get worse.

But his Secretary of Homeland Security, Alejandra Mayorkas, paints a rosier picture, “We are preparing for the end of Title 42….We continue to enforce the laws of this country.”

Title 42 from the Trump era stipulates that until potential immigrants are tested and shown to not have the virus, they should remain in Mexico.

Title 42 is scheduled to expire 5/23/22. The Center for Immigration Studies notes, “Title 42 is the only thing standing between the current chaos at the Southwest border, and no border there at all.”

Biden has promised repeatedly to lift this provision, abandoning testing and opening the floodgates for illegal immigrants. But for now, his plan to abolish Title 42 has been blocked by a Trump-appointed judge.

Meanwhile, Sen. Roger Marshall (R-KS) told Maria Bartiromo of Fox News Channel’s Sunday Morning Futures on 5/22/22 that the border crisis is acute. Marshall has visited the border and wants the president to do the same.

The senator said: “Maria, this is a human tragedy here…At nighttime, it looks like a war zone. There’s a sea of humanitarian crises here every evening. And every day, it’s lived out as well.”

The numbers of illegal immigrants swarming in is staggering. Writing in the Washington Examiner (5/19/22), Paul Bedard observed: “Last year’s 1.7 million border encounters is expected to reach 2.1 million, according to Princeton Policy Advisors, an economic analysis outfit that has correctly predicted recent border surges.”

The Constitution says it exists to “insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty.” Do open borders for any nation help achieve such lofty goals?

On a recent radio segment, I spoke with former Congressman, Allen West, who has seen the border crisis first hand more than ten times. He told me, “Government is supposed to protect people within [our national] borders. That’s their Number 1 duty and responsibility. If we’re not going to follow the rule of law, then what are we supposed to base the Constitutional republic on?”

He added, “America is not just a piece of land in between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans and Canada and Mexico. It is a sovereign nation, and it should be regarded and treated as such.” How can a nation remain sovereign if it has no borders?

Some open borders advocates imply that it’s the “Christian thing to do” to just let everyone in—yet surely these same people lock their doors at night.

Rev. Erwin Lutzer, the author of We Will Not Be Silenced, recently told our D. James Kennedy Ministries television audience: “One of the big mistakes that Christians sometimes make is that they want to apply the ethics of the church to the state. I heard a pastor saying–I’m sure that he was compassionate and meant well–when he said, ‘Of course, we should invite people into America and basically have open borders because after all the gospel is for everyone.’ Yes, of course, the gospel is for everyone, but that’s not the role of the state. The role of the state is to keep order, to punish crime, and to keep its citizens safe. That’s the role of the state.”

Lutzer added, “It is important that the church welcomes everyone. That’s the ministry of the church, but that is not the ministry of the state.”

Meanwhile, critics of Biden’s open border crisis note that known terrorists are sneaking into the country—more than 40 on the terrorist watch list slipped into the US last year alone.

Also, human trafficking is taking place, and drugs are pouring in in record numbers. In fact, Chinese-produced fentanyl and other drugs are being smuggled in through the southern border, and the results are making headlines.

Earlier this year, The New York Times reported (2/13/22), “Drug overdoses now kill more than 100,000 Americans a year—more than vehicle crash and gun deaths combined.” The open borders cause this problem, or at least greatly exacerbate it.

Kerby Anderson, the host of the syndicated radio program “Point of View,” recently told our D. James Kennedy Ministries television audience why he thinks the left pushes for open borders:

“I think the hope is that these might be future Democratic voters. And so what we’ll do is we’ll just kind of incrementally allow non-citizens to vote.”

Anderson points to the recent move by New York City to allow 800,000 noncitizens to vote as an example.

Sen. Marshall, who said our border is like a “war zone” right now, noted that the public safety department of Texas is trying to hold the line: “All of those people are doing their best, but they’re just simply overwhelmed. This is an unsustainable crisis.”

How to Assassinate a Former President: Open the Border thumbnail

How to Assassinate a Former President: Open the Border

By The Daily Skirmish – Liberato.US

You may have heard in the news the FBI foiled an Islamic State-connected plot to assassinate former President George W. Bush.  What you might not have heard is how Joe Biden’s open borders policies made the plot possible.

The plot involved smuggling four Islamic State-linked terrorists from Iraq across the southern border, a border now leaky as a sieve under Biden.  The plot mastermind entered the U.S. on a visitor visa, then applied for asylum.  Under Trump, he most likely would have been detained, then deported if his claim failed.    But under Biden, illegal aliens filing asylum claims are routinely released into the interior of the country and told to show up in court years later.  Surprise, surprise – not everyone does.  What self-respecting terrorist would?

FBI Director Christopher Wray just testified to Congress yesterday, “any porous point of entry is a potential vulnerability that bad actors of all sorts, including national security threats, can seek to exploit.”  And so they do.  Recently, it was reported 42 illegal aliens on terrorist watch lists have been caught at the border since Biden took office.   Nobody knows how many more suspected terrorists are among the 600,000 known ‘gotaways’ now freely roaming the U.S. after entering the country on Biden’s watch.   We do know the Border Patrol released a suspected terrorist from Colombia into the U.S. in April who was not apprehended for three weeks.  It doesn’t take three weeks to travel from the border to Dallas, where the plot to assassinate George W. Bush was to take place.

It’s undeniable the Biden administration has opened the border to a considerable degree.  I’ve documented and compiled in previous commentaries the numerous policy changes the Biden administration has instituted to open the border [Daily Skirmish – 4/28/22].  But all we get out of DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is gaslighting.  He’s on record telling the nation “The border is closed, the border is secure.”  In reality, accommodating new arrivals and moving them through the asylum pipeline as quickly as possible is the plan and will remain the plan when the rush to the border begins after COVID restrictions there end.

One interesting feature of the plan is the increasing reliance of the Biden administration on left-wing activist groups to perform governmental functions to alleviate the problems Biden’s loose immigration policies have caused.  The DHS is giving out $150 million in grants to outside groups to deal with the increasing numbers of new arrivals.  Full employment for Lefties – that’s just great, and you’re paying for it.

Undoubtedly, some of this money will find its way to left-wing groups in D.C. meeting the buses Governor Greg Abbott is sending from Texas.  These groups are providing new arrivals with food, clothing, shelter, and medical care.  One account portrays all this as being done by volunteers taking action because the government has done nothing in response to the buses.  But it won’t be long before these groups pick up the scent of government grant money, if they haven’t already.  The pattern is likely to repeat, once Florida starts sending illegal aliens to Biden’s home state of Delaware when COVID restrictions at the border end.

So, the Biden administration gets to pay a little money and avoid responsibility for the immigration mess it has created.  In fact, Biden and Mayorkas come out ahead because they get to reward their Lefty friends with government contracts, thus ensuring their loyalty and making the Left stronger all around.

Cronyism and terrorism, just two of the consequences of Joe Biden’s ruinous open borders policies.

‘Total Failure’ — House Republicans Call On Biden To Invoke Clause That Would Provide Protection Against Foreign Invasion From Mexican Cartels thumbnail

‘Total Failure’ — House Republicans Call On Biden To Invoke Clause That Would Provide Protection Against Foreign Invasion From Mexican Cartels

By The Daily Caller

Republican Texas Rep. Troy Nehls sent a letter Thursday to President Joe Biden, calling on him to invoke the Guarantee Clause that would require the Executive Branch to protect the states from a foreign invasion.

The Daily Caller first obtained the letter that was signed by 32 other Republicans. In the letter, the GOP lawmakers mention 2.6 million encounters with migrants, reports of cartel members shooting at border enforcement and the over 100,000 Americans who have died from drug overdoses in a 12-month period.

“The Constitution clearly states that the President must guarantee states protection from invasion,” Nehls told the Daily Caller before sending the letter.

“With 2.6 million encounters at our border since President Biden took office, over 100,000 fatal fentanyl overdoses at the hands of the drug-traffickers, and numerous violent attacks on our brave border enforcement, it is clear the United States is facing invasion from the South. President Biden has turned his back on his constitutional duty to stop this border invasion — if he does not act, Republicans will when we take back Congress in November,” he added.


Border agents encountered a record two million migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border in 2021. In fiscal 2021, they seized $3.31 billion in counterfeit goods, over 319,000 pounds of marijuana, over 190,000 pounds of methamphetamine and over 97,000 pounds of cocaine.

The letter also received support from the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) and Citizens for Renewing America.

“For the past year, we have encouraged border state governors to acknowledge an invasion is occurring on our southern border due to the intentional non-enforcement of our laws and a total failure of the Federal government to uphold Article 4, Section 4 of the Constitution. What is transpiring on our border constitutes an invasion, and to date, the actions taken by governors has not alleviated or remedied the problem. Cartels maintain operational control of our unsecured order, facilitating an ongoing invasion that harms American communities. However, if these governors would use their authority to invoke the Self Defense Clause, it would be a gamechanger and stop the flow of devastation ruining our country,” Wade Miller, the executive director of Citizens for Renewing for America, told the Daily Caller.

Dan Stein, president of FAIR, also shared his support for Nehls’ letter.

“There is no question that border states are still in the middle of a historic crisis with no end sight, and sadly, Texas is the epicenter. Dangerous drugs and unknown individuals flood across our southern border every single day. Congressman Nehls outlines a persuasive case for why the federal government has abandoned its duties under the Constitution to protect the states from invasion, and FAIR supports his reasoning wholeheartedly,” Stein said.

The Daily Caller contacted the White House about the letter, to which White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre referred the Caller to the National Security Council (NSC). The NSC did immediately not provide a comment about the letter.

U.S. Census Bureau Keeps Hiring ‘Unsuitable Individuals’ with Criminal Records thumbnail

U.S. Census Bureau Keeps Hiring ‘Unsuitable Individuals’ with Criminal Records

By Judicial Watch

Thirteen years after a federal investigation blasted the U.S. Census Bureau for hiring criminals to enter American homes to gather statistics for the decennial count, a new audit reveals the disturbing practice continues. In fact, more than a decade after the problem was exposed workers for the 2020 count were not properly vetted and many with criminal records had direct interactions with the public. The most recent probe, conducted by the Department of Commerce Inspector General, found that “dozens of employees who worked on address canvassing in advance of the 2020 census had major issues flagged on their investigations, which typically means employees are automatically disqualified from their federal jobs.”

Chunks of the 28-page report are redacted but the gist is well conveyed, that the Census Bureau has long failed to screen its workforce and therefore endangers the public. It’s not like there isn’t a vetting system in place. When one of the 248 regional offices recruit a candidate, the Census Investigative Services (CIS) at the agency’s headquarters in Suitland, Maryland is charged with conducting a pre-employment suitability review. The process includes sending fingerprints to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and a credit history as well as self-disclosed criminal record to CIS for review. Nevertheless, the Bureau still hires felons—including sex offenders—at regional offices nationwide. As an example, a few years ago the Charlotte, North Carolina Area Census Office (ACO) employed a man convicted of a felony involving sex with a child as a regional recruiting manager because despite his criminal record, he passed the Census Bureau’s background check.

The Bureau’s negligent security practices have been on the radar of federal lawmakers for years. Over a decade ago, Congressional investigators slammed the agency for failing to adequately conduct mandatory background checks for tens of thousands of workers, resulting in the hiring of hundreds of violent criminals. At the time, the probe found that more than 35,000 temporary census workers were employed without the proper criminal background check, which includes fingerprinting. That means that more than one-fifth of the canvassing workforce did not get properly processed or fully screened for employment eligibility, creating an obvious security risk. More than 200 of those were subsequently determined to have criminal records yet were in constant contact with the public while canvassing for the 2010 census. Investigators said the criminal record checks were bungled because the Census Bureau’s incompetent staff was poorly trained to conduct them.

Twelve years ago Judicial Watch reported that the Census Bureau knowingly hired a registered sex offender with a long criminal history to make home visits even though such convicts are banned from working for the agency. The embarrassing gaffe came to light when a young mother in a New Jersey suburb recognized the census worker who came to her home from the state’s registered sex offender database. She initially thought it was safe to provide the man with information because he was a legitimate government worker with a badge and bag sporting the U.S. Census Bureau’s official logo. Incredibly, the sex offender used a fake name to get the census job but failed a fingerprint check after getting hired. The agency still let him to complete four days of training and allowed him to visit homes even though he did not pass the background check.

The latest audit, released last week, shows that virtually nothing has changed after all these years and that the Bureau has done little to improve its derelict hiring practices. Investigators found that at least 6,802 census workers were not properly adjudicated, “resulting in persons with significant issues working for the Bureau and, in some instances, contacting households during the 2020 Census NRFU [Nonresponse Followup] operation.” In cases when CIS adjudicators actually vetted employees, the watchdog found that they often failed to request necessary documentation to assess the severity of the issues raised. Stressing that background checks are a critical process to help protect the nation’s interests by establishing trust in the federal workforce, the IG points out the obvious in its recent report: “The lack of oversight increases the risk of unknowingly allowing unsuitable individuals into positions of public trust, which could cause harm to the bureau.”

Title 42 and Chaos on the Border thumbnail

Title 42 and Chaos on the Border

By Michael Cutler

Mayorkas is not America’s guardian — he’s its innkeeper.

On May 15, 2022 Fox News reported, The end of Title 42 will create ‘chaos all across the border,’ former ICE director warns.  That report began with the following:

Former Acting ICE Director Tom Homan warned on Sunday that the Biden administration’s move to end the use of the Title 42 public health order to expel migrants at the border will create “chaos all across the border.”

The policy, used since March 2020 under both Presidents Trump and Biden, provided the ability for American officials to bar migrants from entering the country during a health crisis such as the COVID-19 pandemic.

Last month, the Biden administration confirmed it will terminate the policy at the end of May despite objections from both Democrats and Republicans warning that it would trigger a massive migrant wave.

Those very serious concerns are well founded, nevertheless, the Biden Administration appears determined to go forward with its plan of ending Title 42.

Under Title 42 illegal aliens who apply for political asylum can be turned around at the border out of public health concerns.  Once Title 42, which was imposed by the Trump administration I terminated, the Biden administration will welcome all illegal aliens into the United States even though there is no way to properly vet these aliens.  Consider this warning contained in the official report, 9/11 and  Terrorist Travel:

Terrorists in the 1990s, as well as the September 11 hijackers, needed to find a way to stay in or embed themselves in the United States if their operational plans were to come to fruition. As already discussed, this could be accomplished legally by marrying an American citizen, achieving temporary worker status, or applying for asylum after entering. In many cases, the act of filing for an immigration benefit sufficed to permit the alien to remain in the country until the petition was adjudicated. Terrorists were free to conduct surveillance, coordinate operations, obtain and receive funding, go to school and learn English, make contacts in the United States, acquire necessary materials, and execute an attack.

Because of the huge numbers of illegal aliens who have been welcomed into the United State, most will not be required to go before an immigration judge for many years.  And, if they fail to show up for their hearings years from now, what resources will the U.S. have to search for them?  We are talking about millions of illegal aliens.

The obvious question is why the hell would the Biden administration refuse to secure our borders against the entry of record number of illegal aliens and refuse to enforce our immigration laws from within the interior of the United States- thus endangering national security, public safety, public health and the jobs and wages of Americans?

My recent article, Mayorkas Lives Up to Expectations as Zealous Opponent of Immigration Law Enforcement was predicated on his checkered past and his recent Congressional testimony about how DHS released terrorists who were apprehended recently attempting to enter the United States along with his policies to permit and not deter illegal aliens from  entering the United States.

This lunacy not only runs contrary to the findings and recommendations of the 9/11 Commission, and our laws and the Constitution (Article IV  Relationships Between the States- Section 4 Obligations of United States to States) which states:

The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.

The actions and policies of the Biden administration also run contrary to the findings and concerns provided at numerous Congressional hearings in both the House and Senate.  Consider, for example a hearing that was conducted on April 17, 2018 by the House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence on the topic: State Sponsors Of Terrorism: An Examination Of Iran’s Global Terrorism Network.  Here is the Link to YouTube Video and a Link to the video provided on Congressional website.

Here is an important and chilling excerpt of the prepared testimony of one of the witnesses, Dr. Emanuele Ottolenghi of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies:

In recent years, Hezbollahs Latin American networks have also increasingly cooperated with violent drug cartels and criminal syndicates, often with the assistance of local corrupt political elites. Cooperation includes laundering of drug money; arranging multi-ton shipments of cocaine to the United States and Europe; and directly distributing and selling illicit substances to distant markets. Proceeds from these activities finance Hezbollahs arms procurement; its terror activities overseas; its hold on Lebanons political system; and its efforts, both in Lebanon and overseas, to keep Shia communities loyal to its cause and complicit in its endeavors.

This toxic crime-terror nexus is fueling both the rising threat of global jihadism and the collapse of law and order across Latin America that is helping drive drugs and people northward into the United States. It is sustaining Hezbollahs growing financial needs. It is helping Iran and Hezbollah consolidate a local constituency in multiple countries across Latin America. It is thus facilitating their efforts to build safe havens for terrorists and a continent-wide terror infrastructure that they could use to strike U.S. targets.

Shortly after the terror attacks of September 11, 2001, following my appearance before numerous Congressional hearings to provide expert testimony about the nexus between immigration and national security, I was a frequent guest on most of the major news program on many networks.

During one of my first appearance on Lou Dobbs program on CNN Lou asked me to explain what what going on that convinced so many illegal aliens to head for the United States borders.  My off the cuff answer became one of my most frequently plagiarized statements, “No one would break into the amusement park if they could not get to go on the rides.  Today American taxpayers are paying for them to get on those rides, so why should anyone be surprised that they are coming?”

Today the Biden administration is so absolutely determined to provide for the needs of illegal aliens that includes baby formulas when Americans are unable to find it on the store shelves in their neighborhoods.

On May 12, 2022 Fox News reported:  GOP rep says illegal migrants sent ‘pallets’ of hard-to-find baby formula.

The issue is not that the administration is providing formula for alien infants- but that there is an abject shortage of vital nutrients for American infants.  Parents are expected to care for their own children before providing for others.  Governments are similarly compelled prioritize their own citizens before they help others.

Clearly the Biden administration and the radicals who now control the Democrat Party seek to “fundamentally change America” as I previous observed, For Dems to Succeed, Americans Must Fail

But there may well be another motivation.  My recent article, Biden Administration Providing the Best Government Money Can Buy may help to explain an additional motivation by this administration to undermine national security, public safety and the future of our nation and our citizens- good, old-fashioned CORRUPTION!

Here is an excerpt from my article:

There are many potential reasons the administration is eager to remove one of the barriers to unfettered illegal immigration.  Judicial Watch Corruption Chronicles recently published an article that may explain at least one of the motivations for this impending betrayal of America to be launched by the Biden administration.

Here is how the Judicial Watch report began:

A nonprofit that hired a Biden administration official received a huge no-bid government contract that wasted $17 million on unused hotel rooms for illegal immigrants, a federal audit reveals. The politically connected group, which had no experience providing the services covered by the sole source federal contract, also failed to meet COVID-19 health protocols required by the government when the deal was signed. The highly questionable arrangement was executed by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the Homeland Security agency responsible for housing migrant families in detention. The agency typically uses Family Residential Centers (FRC) to house family units, but in early 2021 ICE anticipated increased apprehensions of illegal immigrant families along the southern border and awarded a contract to harbor them in hotels while completing intake processing, auditors from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Inspector General explain in a recent report.

The group that received the lucrative no-bid award, Endeavors, had never provided beds or all-inclusive emergency family residential services when ICE hired it to do so, auditors found. Formerly known as Family Endeavors, the Texas based nonprofit claims to passionately serve vulnerable people in crisis through its innovative, personalized approach. Last year a national news outlet reported that Endeavors won a colossal $530 million government contract just months after it hired Biden administration official Andrew Lorenzen-Straight as its senior director for migrant services and federal affairs. The contract is by far the largest ever awarded to the nonprofit, according to the article, and is potentially worth more than 12 times the groups most recently reported annual budget. Lorenzen-Strait, a former ICE official who also advised the Biden-Harris transition team on Department of Homeland Security (DHS) policy and staffing matters, must have pulled some strings.

The report was predicated on a report issued by the Office of Inspector General on April 22, 2022.

It has been estimated that termination of Title 42 could result in at least the doubling of the number of illegal aliens who would flood across the border.  Imagine how much more money would be given to the “non-profit” NGOs (Non-Government Organizations) turning DHS into America’s “Inn Keeper!”  I used to refer to DHS as the Department of Homeland Surrender under Biden and Mayorkas- perhaps DHS also stands for Department of Hospitality Services!

The Biden administration needs a new cabinet level official- the Official Auctioneer!

Massive Drug Smuggling Tunnel Found Between Mexico And U.S. thumbnail

Massive Drug Smuggling Tunnel Found Between Mexico And U.S.

By The Daily Caller

Authorities discovered a large cross-border drug smuggling tunnel in California, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of California announced Monday.

The tunnel, linking Otay Mesa, California and Tijuana, Mexico, was 1,744 feet long, 61 feet deep and 4 feet in diameter, and had reinforced walls, a rail system and electricity, according to the Attorney’s Office. The tunnel was about 350 feet from the border with Mexico, U.S. Attorney Randy Grossman said during a press conference.

Homeland Security Investigation (HSI) agents discovered the tunnel Friday while on surveillance of a residence that was used for cocaine smuggling in March, according to the Attorney’s Office. As a result of the bust, six people were charged with conspiring to distribute 1,762 pounds of cocaine.

“There is no more light at the end of this narco-tunnel. We will take down every subterranean smuggling route we find to keep illicit drugs from reaching our streets and destroying our families and communities,” Grossman said in a statement.

Authorities were able to make several arrests while following vehicles going in and out of the warehouse to pick up drugs, according to a complaint. Agents pulled over the individuals, finding narcotics in their cars.

“The San Diego law enforcement community has multiple investigative task forces that highly prioritize tunnel detection- exemplified by this tunnel discovery by the Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) San Diego led Costa Pacifico Money Laundering Task Force. The San Diego law enforcement community throughout the years has consistently shown its ability to detect and remediate tunnels while bringing those responsible to justice,” HSI San Diego Special Agent in Charge Chad Plantz said in a statement.

FLORIDA ATTORNEY GENERAL: Documents Show Biden, Mayorkas Knew Their Border Policies Help Drug Cartels, Hurt the U.S. thumbnail

FLORIDA ATTORNEY GENERAL: Documents Show Biden, Mayorkas Knew Their Border Policies Help Drug Cartels, Hurt the U.S.

By The Geller Report

President Biden and his Homeland Security chief, Alejandro N. Mayorkas, are knowingly engaging in policymaking that benefits transnational smuggling cartels and endangers the homeland of the United States, despite both men’s statements to the contrary, Florida officials said Friday.

Treason is now the state of play for Democrats.

Florida AG: Docs uncovered showing Biden, Mayorkas know their border policies help cartels, hurt US

Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody said the White House is engaged in an ‘unconscionable cover-up’

BY Charles Creitz | Fox News May 15, 2022:

Florida AG rips White House for causing mass migration: ‘It’s an unconscionable coverup’

Documents show President Biden and his Homeland Security chief, Alejandro Mayorkas, are knowingly engaging in policymaking that benefits transnational smuggling cartels and endangers the United States, Florida’s attorney general said Friday.

Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody announced on “America Reports” that her office has obtained documents she said show Mayorkas did not tell the truth when he testified to Congress that DHS was effectively managing the Mexican border.

Biden, she said, is the ringleader of an “unconscionable cover-up” of immigration policy breakdowns, telling Fox News the documents she obtained through FOIA show he understands his policies are enriching cartels and failing the homeland.

“[Mayorkas] testified under oath to Congress, and I showed last week that that was a lie when he said the policies were not affecting this historic illegal immigration into our country,” Moody said.

“And now we have uncovered through Florida’s litigation that not only does Biden understand that the transnational criminal organizations are facilitating, organizing and profiting millions from the illegal immigration into our country, they also understand with the cancelation of Title 42, – and this is, in CBP’s words – ‘there will be significant safety implications’.”

Last week, a DHS official responded to illegal immigration-related questions from Sen. Joshua Hawley, R-Mo., – pledging to the Republican lawmaker collective migration figures will ultimately decrease after Title 42 is rescinded.

On “America Reports,” Moody said Mayorkas has repeatedly claimed his office is effectively handling the border crisis, but cited one document gleaned from the FOIA request explaining that a “worst case scenario” would be a “pause in the use of removal pathway such as … ‘Remain in Mexico’” and Title 42 “impacts [USCBP] ability to expel subjects…”

VIDEO REPORT: Afghan Refugees Given $400,000 To Purchase Houses In Florida As Americans Go Homeless thumbnail

VIDEO REPORT: Afghan Refugees Given $400,000 To Purchase Houses In Florida As Americans Go Homeless

By Dr. Rich Swier

The published this video report on relocating Afghan refugees.

On September 7th, 2021 USA Today in an article titled, “White House asks Congress for billions in emergency funds for Afghan resettlementJoey Garrison reported:

WASHINGTON — The White House is seeking billions in emergency funds this month from Congress to help resettle tens of thousands of Afghan immigrants into the U.S.

In a spending request Tuesday outlining “urgent needs,” President Joe Biden’s administration asked Congress to authorize $6.4 billion for Afghan resettlement efforts one week after the U.S. ended its military effort in Afghanistan. The U.S. is currently working to resettle Afghan allies evacuated from the war-torn country.

White House officials also requested “at least $10 billion” for recovery efforts from Hurricane Ida, and an additional $14 billion for other recent natural disasters – including Hurricanes Laura and Delta from last year.

Shalanda Young, acting director of the Office of Management and Budget, made the budget request Tuesday, less than four weeks before the current 2021 fiscal year ends Sept. 30. Together the requests total more than $30 billion.

[ … ]

The funding for Afghan refugees would support U.S. resettlement operations overseas and plans for as many as 65,000 vulnerable Afghans to arrive in the U.S. by the end of his month, according to the White House, and up to 30,000 additional Afghans over the next year.

Mapped: Afghan refugees headed to 46 states

— Axios (@axios) September 16, 2021

On September 16th, 2021 Nexstar Media Wire in an article titled “Florida to receive over 1,000 Afghan refugees in coming weeks, report says” reported:

The Biden administration began notifying governors and state refugee coordinators across the country about how many Afghan evacuees from among the first group of nearly 37,000 arrivals are slated to be resettled in their states.

California is projected to take more arrivals than any other — more than 5,200 people, according to State Department data for the Afghan Placement and Assistance program obtained by The Associated Press.

Alabama and Mississippi are each slated to welcome 10, U.S. officials said Wednesday. Hawaii, South Dakota, West Virginia, Wyoming and the District of Columbia are not expected to resettle anyone from the first group of evacuees who fled during the final days of the chaotic U.S. withdrawal last month.

Mayorkas Lives Up to Expectations as Zealous Opponent of Immigration Law Enforcement thumbnail

Mayorkas Lives Up to Expectations as Zealous Opponent of Immigration Law Enforcement

By Michael Cutler

Department of Homeland Security Secretary (DHS) Alejandro Mayorkas testified last week before Congress about the immigration crisis and the administration’s plans to terminate Title 42, which would likely amp up the entry of illegal aliens even when such numbers are already at unprecedented levels.

As we shall see, no one should be surprised at the level of nonfeasance, misfeasance and malfeasance demonstrated on a daily basis by Mayorkas. They are all too predictable!

Fox News reported on a particularly heated exchange between Mayorkas and Congressman Jim Jordan, ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee.

Here is a jaw-dropping excerpt from the report:

Republican Rep. Jim Jordan was cut off and left seemingly stunned while grilling Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas on whether 42 illegal immigrants on the terror watch list have been released into the United States.

“Forty-two illegal immigrants were encountered at our border are on the terrorist and no-fly list. Are any of them still in our country?” House Judiciary Committee ranking member Jordan asked Mayorkas Thursday during a Capitol hearing.

Jordan was then informed that his time has expired, but the Ohio Republican continued pressing Mayorkas to respond.

“This is an important question for this committee,” Jordan continued.

“Congressman, I will deliver to you a response with respect…” Mayorkas said while Jordan kept pressing him. Mayorkas added that “some of them may still be in detention.”

The fact that known terrorists have apparently been released from custody by what is supposed to be the “Department of Homeland Security” is beyond comprehension!

As I noted in a previous article:

On October 13, 2021 the Washington Times reported, EXCLUSIVE: DHS drafts plan to allow fraudsters to keep citizenship: Memo would constrain ability to pursue denaturalization cases.

Here is how that report begins:

The Homeland Security Department is circulating a draft proposal that would severely curtail its attempts to strip citizenship from people who were naturalized based on fraud.

The Washington Times saw a draft of the memo, from Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to the heads of the three immigration agencies. The memo says people might not apply for citizenship because they worry about losing it in the future.

“Naturalized citizens deserve finality and security in their rights as citizens,” the memo says. “Department policies should not cause a chilling effect or barriers for lawful permanent residents seeking to naturalize.”

The 9/11 Commission was crystal clear in warning that the terror attacks of September 11, 2001, and other terror attacks were made possible by multiple failures of the immigration system – including border security and fraud committed in visa applications and in applications for immigration benefits.

Perhaps the DHS chief should be a bit more concerned about undermining national security, public safety and the survival of Americans than he is about the “chilling effect” for immigrants seeking United States citizenship!

Nevertheless, the Biden administration has blithely and, indeed, intentionally acted in apparent violation of both 8 U.S. Code § 1324 and the Constitution of the United States, specifically Article IV, Section 4 which states:

The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on application of the legislature, or of the executive (when the legislature cannot be convened) against domestic violence.

Predicting the future is a dicey undertaking.

Jules Verne was one of the rare authors who accurately predicted the creation of submarines

(Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea) and even predicted manned spaceflight to the moon in 1865 (From the Earth to the Moon) which, incredibly, depicted a space cannon erected in Florida that would send three men on a voyage to the moon.

However, Verne was the exception. Think of how many predictions made by “futurists” have been flat-out wrong. Think of how many pollsters failed to predict that Donald Trump would win the 2016 Presidential Election.

Many investment companies, in advertising their successes, frequently include the disclaimer, “Past performance is no guarantee of future results.”

Therefore I am more than a bit reluctant to predict the future. However, while I did make a prediction that has proven to be all too accurate, I take absolutely no satisfaction in getting it right.

In December of 2020, I predicted that, if Alejandro Mayorkas was appointed DHS Secretary, he would take a wrecking ball to that vital but overwhelmed and beleaguered agency and turn it into the Department of Homeland Surrender.

It has become abundantly clear that the Biden administration hand-selected Mr. Mayorkas precisely because of his multiple failures when he was the Director of United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, and also when he was promoted to the position of Deputy Director of Homeland Security during the Obama administration.

As I noted in my articles, Mayorkas was investigated by the Office of Inspector General (OIG) during his tenure in the Obama administration and found to have improperly approved visas for aliens who had links to terrorism and others who had ties to Terry McAuliffe’s electric-car company.

Yet Mayorkas was confirmed by the Senate and he is now blatantly endangering national security, public safety and public health with the apparent blessings of the administration.

The senators who voted to confirm Mayorkas’ appointment as the head of DHS need to be held accountable by their respective constituents in light of his open hostility to immigration law enforcement during his stint with the Obama administration.

Those senators did not need a crystal ball, they only needed to take seriously the objections raised by some of their colleagues or, perhaps, they should have just read the OIG report.

VIDEO: Suspected and Known Terrorists Walking Freely in the U.S. thumbnail

VIDEO: Suspected and Known Terrorists Walking Freely in the U.S.

By Project Veritas


A source within the Federal Government has come forward to reveal suspected and known terrorists are roaming freely in the United States following the Biden administration’s exit strategy in Afghanistan, and subsequent initiatives launched by the Department of Homeland Security [DHS] to shelter fleeing refugees, known as Operation Allies Welcome.

Here are some of the highlights from today’s video:

  • The records obtained by Project Veritas confirm numerous suspected terrorists are currently living throughout the country, many of whom have work visas despite being flagged by the Terrorist Watchlist for violent offenses like murder and using explosive devices and arms.
  • Project Veritas published redacted government records of suspected terrorists who fall under the “Tier 1” threat level which is labelled as “Armed and Dangerous.” Most of these individuals flagged by the Department of Homeland Security were admitted because of an initiative to shelter fleeing refugees called Operation Allies Welcome.
  • The whistleblower inside the Federal Government has identified numerous cases. The suspected terrorists verified by Project Veritas appear to only be a small sample size. These threats live throughout the country including the nation’s capital, Washington, D.C.

You can watch the full video HERE.

The video includes never-before-seen footage of current Director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services [USCIS], Ur Jaddou, touting the Biden administration’s efforts to expedite the adjudication process of Afghanistan refugees. USCIS is a division within the Department of Homeland Security.

In the footage, Jaddou appears to be giving a speech to other government employees saying, “I am so proud. So, so proud, of what we were capable of doing and what we did in Operation Allies Welcome. Thousands of our Afghan allies paroled into the United States swiftly received employment authorization.”

She goes on to add that the agency is “continuing to work with the State Department to improve the efficacy, integrity, security, and transparency of the U.S. refugee admissions program.”

To date, Operation Allies Welcome has brought over 84,000 Afghan refugees into the United States.

2021 Update: How Many Illegal Aliens Live in the United States? thumbnail

2021 Update: How Many Illegal Aliens Live in the United States?

By Federation for American Immigration Reform

Click to Read or Download the PDF version of this report

As of the end of 2021, FAIR estimates that approximately 15.5 million illegal aliens reside within the United States. This number is substantially higher than FAIR’s previous estimate of 14.5 million in 2020.



Based on FAIR’s most recent comprehensive fiscal cost study, illegal aliens are likely imposing a net fiscal burden of at least $143.1 billion.[1] That’s an increase of approximately $9.4 billion over the past year.

This alarming increase in the illegal alien population can be attributed largely to two significant developments:

  • The improvement of the United States’ economy as the country re-opens after the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic:
    • Businesses are once again hiring, and many unscrupulous employers are using this as an opportunity to turn to reliably cheap labor to undercut the market and make up for lost profits resulting from economic shutdowns stemming from the pandemic. [2]
    • These unethical hiring practices occur even though millions of Americans remain unemployed or underemployed.[3]
  • A more significant factor fueling this increase is that the Biden administration has effectively abolished the mission of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), preventing the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) from securing our southern border, and implementing measures that encourage mass illegal immigration. Some of these policy changes include:
    • Record apprehensions at both the southern and northern Borders. A total of more than 1.9 million illegal aliens were apprehended at U.S. land borders in FY 2021 – the most on record. Hundreds of thousands of these individuals were released into the country.[4]


    • Releasing tens of thousands of ICE-detained illegal aliens. In FY 2021, the administration released more than 143,000 detained illegal aliens into the interior of the country. Additionally, ICE arrested fewer than 60,000 illegal aliens. When more illegal aliens are released into the interior of the country than removed, the illegal alien population is almost certain to grow.[5]
    • Reinstating the Obama-era policy of catch-and-release. This dramatically increases the illegal alien population as it allows unlawful migrants to enter the country undetained while they await their court hearings.[6] Many of these individuals fail to appear at their hearings.[7] Those that do appear typically remain in the country for years until their proceedings conclude due to a massive, and growing, backlog of immigration cases.[8]
    • Halting Construction of the Border Wall. President Biden made good on his campaign promise to end the construction of a barrier along the Southwest border. Predictably, this has made it easier for illegal aliens and human smugglers to unlawfully enter the U.S. undetected. [9]
    • Gutting the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) and Asylum Cooperative Agreements (ACAs). The administration initially cancelled MPP soon after President Biden’s inauguration. Even though a federal judge has since instructed the administration to restart the program, very few migrants have been required to follow the protocols set forth in the rule.[10] The administration has also cancelled the ACAs, which allows for third-country nationals to now asylum shop their way to the U.S. instead of requiring them to apply in the first possible nation.[11]
    • Promising amnesty. Since early in his campaign, President Biden has promised to extend amnesty to essentially all illegal aliens in the United States. Since taking office, Congress has tried (and failed) multiple times to pass such an amnesty. Soon after his election, the number of illegal border crossings rose exponentially. Many migrants explicitly claimed that they were entering the United States solely because they felt like President Biden was inviting them.[12]
    • Forbidding ICE from arresting immigration lawbreakers. Soon after taking office, President Biden took steps to severely limit ICE officials from detaining and removing most non-criminal immigration lawbreakers.[13] In September of 2021, these limits were expanded to also protect most criminal illegal aliens from deportation.[14]
    • Continued abuse of Temporary Protection Status (TPS) programs. The administration has implemented TPS for various new countries, while failing to end any existing designations – even in situations where the original reason for implementation have long been resolved.[15] TPS recipients do not technically hold lawful status in the country, and therefore are included in our estimates. As residents from more and more countries are offered TPS, fewer illegal aliens will be eligible for removal from the country.

Where do Illegal Aliens Live in the United States

Unsurprisingly, most illegal aliens tend to live near the United States’ border with Mexico or in states with sanctuary policies that offer welcoming environments and protection from immigration enforcement. The ten states with the largest estimated illegal alien populations account for just under three-fourths (70.6%) of the national illegal alien total.

However, this does not mean that states which hold a comparatively small share of the illegal alien population are unaffected by its negative effects. In fact, as FAIR has pointed out in other studies, illegal immigration often hits these states the hardest, as it is more difficult for low-population areas to absorb the impacts of illegal immigration.[16]

The following graphics estimate how many illegal aliens reside in each state, as well as the total number of illegal aliens and their children.

2021 Illegal Alien Population Estimate by State

Local Populations:

Most of the attention regarding the impact of illegal immigration is placed on the Southern border, as well as national figures. However, our research shows that illegal aliens reside throughout the nation, not just near the border. According to a FAIR report, states that are nowhere near the Southern border and have relatively small foreign-born populations have slowly become ideal destinations for illegal aliens.[17]

The various employment opportunities in the manufacturing and agriculture sectors and the lower cost of living in these states are attracting migrants, including illegal aliens. As a result, unlawful migrants have cost Americans fiscally, economically, and socially in these jurisdictions.[18]

For example, despite its relatively small population, FAIR estimates that approximately 6,700 illegal aliens now live in Portland, ME.[19] This has resulted in thousands of lawful and illegal aliens being forced to live in temporary shelters, as well as a drastic increase in crime.[20] So, while that may appear to be a miniscule figure when compared to the illegal alien population in places like Miami, FL, its affects are more acutely felt by local residents.

Listed below is a selection of localities and the number of illegal aliens who are estimated to live there:

Illegal Alien Population in Select U.S. Cities
Location Total Illegal Aliens Percentage of Population
Miami, FL*                        626,596 11.1%
Houston, TX                        413,316 5.8%
Atlanta, GA                        211,491 3.5%
San Diego County, CA                        188,847 5.7%
Fairfax County, VA                           88,861 7.7%
Tucson, AZ                           32,607 3.1%
Loudoun County, VA                           26,521 6.3%
Reno, NV                           17,566 3.6%
Greensboro, NC                           17,413 2.2%
Colorado Springs, CO                           12,918 1.7%
Columbus, OH                           11,890 0.6%
Scranton, PA                             8,805 1.6%
Lincoln, NE                             8,636 2.5%
Portland, ME                             6,722 1.2%

Who is an Illegal Alien?

An illegal alien is anyone who:

  • Entered the United States without authorization, or
  • Anyone who unlawfully remained in the United States once their authorized time of stay expired.

It is important to define exactly who is and is not an illegal alien because many organizations deliberately misclassify some illegal aliens in a dishonest effort to portray that population as smaller than it actually is. Many organizations and mainstream media sources incorrectly classify unaccompanied alien minors (UAMs), recipients of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), and/or those with Temporary Protected Status (TPS) as being lawfully present in the United States.

Such classifications are inaccurate. Individuals who have been granted any form of deferred action or who have received TPS have not been granted “lawful status.” Rather, federal immigration authorities have acknowledged their unlawful presence and are opting to temporarily defer their removal from the country. These types of limited deportation deferrals are subject to revocation in a wide variety of circumstances.

FAIR offers additional details on who should be considered an illegal alien in our study titled “Why ‘Illegal Alien’ is the Correct Term.”[21]

Difficulty in Estimating the Illegal Alien Population

Estimating the size, distribution, and characteristics of the illegal alien population is an inexact science. The methods used by those claiming to have calculated a definitive figure should be viewed skeptically as there is no completely reliable source of information on illegal aliens. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) only (loosely) counts foreign nationals who enter and leave the United States in a lawful manner. In truth, we do not know exactly how many people cross the border unlawfully and evade immigration authorities. We can only estimate these figures based on changes in annual census data, along with how many individuals CBP and ICE believe slip through their detection.

Most current estimates regarding the total number of illegal aliens are based on U.S. Census Bureau data. Far too many of these tallies presume that essentially all unlawful migrants are willing to respond to demographic questionnaires and that they provide accurate information to federal officials. As people whose very presence in the United States is an ongoing violation of law, many illegal aliens understandably see no personal value in revealing any information about their nativity. Therefore, when asked about how, when, and why they entered the United States, illegal aliens have a strong motive to either lie, claiming they are lawful migrants or citizens, or refuse to respond at all. There are no repercussions for illegal aliens who fail to respond to annual Census Bureau survey programs such as the American Community Survey (ACS) or the Current Population Survey (CPS).

Indeed, there are few mechanisms in place to verify the accuracy of the information respondents provide. In fact, the Census Bureau’s weighted results from the ACS can vary by millions, depending on what information is requested and how questions are phrased.[22] Because of this, it is important to not solely rely on raw totals from the Census Bureau.

How We Reached our Estimate

To determine FAIR’s estimate of the total number of illegal aliens in the United States, we first calculated an approximate total number of all foreign-born residents currently presumed to be living here. In order to do this, we first analyzed the latest relevant information available from the Census Bureau’s 2020 ACS and 2021 CPS.[23]

Again, it’s important to realize that the ACS and CPS do not capture the entire illegal alien population in the United States. In the past, most reputable research organizations have considered a raw calculation based on these data to be anywhere from 15-35 percent lower than the actual suspected total illegal alien population. This is also in line with the most recent estimates from the federal government.[24] However, most research organizations that produce estimates of the illegal alien population are pro-mass migration, and they dishonestly purport that Census data is almost fully accurate to create a false impression that the illegal alien population in the United States is smaller than it really is.

So, after we subtracted the total number of lawfully present migrants in the country from the total foreign-born population to reach our base illegal alien population, we assume that this total is underestimated by approximately 30 percent. This makes our estimate compatible to the general consensus of non-partisan experts regarding the accuracy of Census data.[25] [26] Using this method, we reached our estimate of 15.5 million.


[13] Congressional Research Service, “The Biden Administration’s Immigration Enforcement Priorities: Background and Legal Considerations,” Updated December 10, 2021,

[19] FAIR’s estimate of the illegal alien population at the local level is conducted in a similar manner to how we calculate totals at the national and state level. However, since less data is available regarding the distribution of illegal aliens within states, the margin of error for these estimates are higher (approximately +/-8 percent).

[22] Basing the total number of foreign-born residents in the United States on responses to the ACS question requesting citizenship information typically yields a weighted total that is more than two million individuals lower than when the estimate is based on survey questions regarding how long respondents have lived in the country.

[25] To estimate the total number of lawful migrants in the United States, we examined both data from the ACSCPS, and the comprehensive “Yearbook of Immigration Statistics” published annually by the DHS. This is the approach most commonly used by other reputable organizations that produce estimates on this matter. Our totals closely resemble the most commonly cited estimate of roughly 35.8 million.

[26] As noted earlier in this study, most professional statisticians once considered somewhere around 30 percent to be the most accurate assumption for how many illegal aliens are typically missed by the Census. This is also approximately the figure used by the federal government in their most recent projections.

MAR-A-LAGO: Watch as a solemn and respectful President Donald J. Trump attends a Defend the Border & Save Lives event

By The United West

Recently, The United West and JEXIT USA held an event for Tom Homan, the former Director of ICE and author of Defend the Border & Save Lives. During the event a two-minute video memorial was played to honor recently deceased patriots and friends, Barry Fernandez and Roger Gangitano.

As the video memorial started, President Donald J. Trump entered the room.

Normally, the audience would start cheering and yelling to welcome the President and he would return the acknowledgement, but in this case, the President became very solemn and respectfully waited until the video memorial ended.

NEVER will you see this, sensitive, human side of Donald Trump presented in the Trump-Deranged media.



JEXIT and The United West are collaborating with Tom Homan, former Director of ICE under president Trump, in order to shine the light on the catastrophe unfolding at the border. The Fake News won’t report on it, the Swamp won’t tell you, but we’re here to show the World what’s really going on. We have launched a two year campaign of fundraising for the production of a series and a movie based Tom Homan’s Book, “Defend the Border & Save Lives“. We opened our campaign with a successful fundraiser at Mar-a-Lago, where president Donald J. Trump and Tom Homan both spoke about this urgent issue which is crucial to the survival of our nation, of our Judeo-Christian values as well as the safety of our people and of those victims being trafficked. We will keep you updated on this project meant to help conservatives win the 2022 and 2024 elections.

Former University of Alabama student hid funding of al-Qaeda, lawyers say she’s mentally ill thumbnail

Former University of Alabama student hid funding of al-Qaeda, lawyers say she’s mentally ill

By Jihad Watch

Yes, of course. Authorities the world over have decided that it’s far easier to pretend that jihadis and their supporters are mentally ill than to confront the reality of jihad.

Former University of Alabama student sentenced for hiding funding to al Qaeda

by Kenneth Garger, New York Post, April 28, 2022:

A former University of Alabama student was sentenced to more than seven years behind bars Wednesday for hiding financing to al Qaeda.

Alaa Mohd Abusaad, 26, had pleaded guilty in 2019 to a charge of concealing terrorism financing after telling an undercover FBI employee how to send money to terrorist fighters.

Abusaad also told the undercover fed that “money” for the terrorists “is always needed.”…

The woman’s lawyers argued she was left vulnerable to the dangers of the interest due to her mental health issues, WBMA-TV reported.




Sudan: Muslims enter church during service, attack three Christians, pastor arrested and jailed

Nigeria: Muslims murder 18 Christians, burn down 92 houses

UK: Prisons have failed to recognize the dangers of Muslim gangs and convicted jihad terrorists

UK: convicted pedophile Muslim MP served on government Muslim rape gang panel 

UK: Now police are legally bound to crack down on ‘noisy’ protests
