Nope, current administration assures us there it no crisis here, folks. Besides, uncle Joe done made arrangements with Mexico, Honduras and Guatemala to increase enforcement against migration......sound familiar? It should, President Trump had that in place before Biden canceled the agreement with executive orders the first week or two of his administration.

Top Republican Posts Video of ‘Child Abuse’ at Texas Border Patrol Facility

By Jack Phillips
April 12, 2021 Updated: April 12, 2021

House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) posted video footage (click link below)of numerous unaccompanied children being housed in a Donna, Texas, Border Patrol facility and said it’s tantamount to “child abuse.”

“I visited the Donna processing facility yesterday. … This is the devastating result of their disastrous left-wing immigration agenda. RT so everyone can see what they're trying to hide. This is child abuse,” Scalise wrote on Twitter on April 10.


The video showed what appeared to be possibly hundreds of children covered in aluminum-style blankets, packed next to each other in transparent pens. The sound of people talking loudly in the background can be heard.

A day before releasing the video, Scalise, the No. 2 Republican in the House, posted a video of himself talking near a section of the U.S.–Mexico border.

“This is out of control. It’s the middle of the night. We’ve seen dozens of children flow freely across the border in just the past few minutes,” he said in a tweet as dozens of people who appear to be trying to cross the border illegally walk past him.

The Epoch Times has contacted the Department of Homeland Security for comment.

On April 12, the White House reached a deal with Mexico, Guatemala, and Honduras to potentially stem the flow of illegal immigration into the United States, a Biden administration official said.

Tyler Moran, special assistant to the president for immigration for the Domestic Policy Council, said in an interview that the administration “secured agreements” that would place “more troops on their” respective borders.

“Mexico, Honduras, and Guatemala have all agreed to do this,” Moran said. “That not only is going to prevent the traffickers and the smugglers and cartels that take advantage of the kids on their way here, but also to protect those children.”

The announcement comes as numerous illegal immigrants have attempted to cross the U.S.–Mexico border in recent months. In March, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) encountered more than 171,000 illegal immigrants, including a significant number of unaccompanied children, according to data provided by the agency.

Authorities encountered 18,890 unaccompanied children in March, well above previous highs of 11,475 in May 2019 and 10,620 in June 2014 reported by the Border Patrol, which began publishing numbers in 2009.

More than 4,000 parents and children—mostly unaccompanied minors—have been crammed into a CBP tent complex designed for 250 in Donna, Texas. More than 600 children were packed into a room built for 32 last week, according to Reuters.

Reuters contributed to this report.

U.S. reaches agreements with Mexico, Honduras and Guatemala to increase enforcement against migration.


By Michael D. Shear

April 12, 2021, 2:03 p.m. ET

The Biden administration announced Monday that it had reached agreements with the governments of Mexico, Honduras and Guatemala for those countries to increase enforcement against migration toward the United States border.

Jen Psaki, the White House press secretary, said the three countries have increased their numbers of police and troops in an attempt to keep migrants, including families with children, from making a dangerous trip north.

Mexico has informed the United States that it will maintain 10,000 troops at its own southern border, aiming to double the number of migrants that it stops from traveling north, Ms. Psaki said. Guatemala has added 1,500 troops to its border with Honduras and has set up a series of a dozen checkpoints along the route that many migrants take as they head to the United States.

She also said that Honduras recently “surged” 7,000 police and troops to disperse a contingent of migrants that had gathered to make the trip north seeking refuge.


The announcement of the agreements echoed several made by the Trump administration. In the summer of 2019, President Donald J. Trump agreed to drop his threat to impose tariffs on Mexico after the country agreed to send thousands of troops to intercept migrants making their way north to the border with the United States.

Ms. Psaki credited the work of Roberta Jacobson, a former U.S. ambassador to Mexico, who has been serving as a senior border adviser on the National Security Council. Ms. Jacobson said last week that she intends to leave the administration, as initially planned, at the end of the month.

The Biden administration has repeatedly said that part of addressing illegal immigration from Central American countries involves working diplomatically to lessen the crime, corruption and poverty that often drives people to leave their homes seeking refuge.

President Biden last month put Vice President Kamala Harris in charge of the long-term effort to improve the conditions in that region. The agreements with the countries are an early test of the cooperation that Ms. Harris will need in order to succeed in that mission.

“These discussions are ongoing, over a period of time and take place at several levels of the government, both here and within these countries,” Ms. Psaki said.

SC Governor Blocks Biden Administration From Bringing Unaccompanied Children From Border

By Jack Phillips
April 12, 2021 Updated: April 12, 2021

South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster issued an executive order on Monday that prohibits the federal government from bringing unaccompanied children from the U.S.-Mexico border to South Carolina.

McMaster issued the executive order in response to inquiries from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Administration of Children and Families about if the state had resources to place unaccompanied children in the state’s foster care facilities and group homes.

Michael Leach, the head of the South Carolina Department of Social Services, told McMaster about the federal government’s inquiries about taking children from the border and placing them in South Carolina’s foster care and group homes, according to a letter (pdf) dated on April 8.

“South Carolina’s children must always be given first priority for placement into foster care and the State’s strained resources must be directed to addressing the needs of its children,” McMaster stated.

He added: “Allowing the federal government to place an unlimited number of unaccompanied migrant children into our state’s child welfare system for an unspecified length of time is an unacceptable proposition. We’ve been down this road with the federal government before and the state usually ends up ‘on the hook.’”

The Republican governor further stipulated that the “growing humanitarian crisis” along the U.S.-Mexico border needs to be addressed by the White House.

Allowing an influx of minors into the foster care system would place a strain on South Carolina social services’ capacity, his office said.

The federal government’s strategy, McMaster’s office added, will create a plan “to financially incentivize private providers in the short term to the extent that these facilities may prioritize the placement of unaccompanied migrant children over” the placement of South Carolina children. “The State may ultimately incur a long-term financial burden if families are not located in a timely manner and the federal government ceases providing direct support for unaccompanied minors,” according to the release.

According to the letter from Leach, at least “six private providers” have “indicated interest” in placing the unaccompanied children in South Carolina.

Leach’s letter noted that as of April 8, no unaccompanied children have been placed in South Carolina’s foster or group homes.

The executive order comes as a surge of illegal immigrants has amassed along the Southern Border, and as the Biden administration scrambles to find housing for unaccompanied children. So far, 11 facilities have been opened to accommodate the aliens.

As of March 2021, U.S. Customs and Border Protection reported nearly 19,000 unaccompanied children in its custody.

Over the weekend, McMaster said he went to Texas to visit National Guardsmen from his state who are stationed there.

“At the border in Del Rio where building of the wall has ceased although the materials have been paid for. That is unacceptable,” he wrote on Twitter.

The Epoch Times has contacted the Department of Health and Human Services for comment.

Texas Ranchers Dealing With Armed Smugglers on Land

By Charlotte Cuthbertson
April 15, 2021 Updated: April 15, 2021

McALLEN, Texas—Two heavily armed suspected smugglers drive down a dirt road to hand their cargo of illegal aliens over to the next vehicle. One, the front passenger, is filming the bumpy drive with one hand, while pointing an AR-15 with a drum magazine out the windshield.

They’re speaking Spanish, talking about how much farther to go. At one stage, the driver communicates over a radio to say, “I’m there, I’m there, hold on.”

Suddenly the vehicle arrives at a gate, where a pickup truck is waiting on the other side, and the driver and passenger yell to their cargo, “All of you, all, all, all, run, run,” along with a lot of cursing. The backseat passengers jump out and run to the waiting vehicle.

The incident occurred in Jim Hogg County, Texas, about 70 miles north of the U.S.–Mexico border.

Landowners and ranchers dozens of miles north of the border have long dealt with illegal aliens traversing their land as they try to evade Border Patrol highway checkpoints and law enforcement. They commonly leave gates open, which mixes stock; destroy fences and gates; light fires; break into properties; and steal property.

But today’s human smugglers and illegal aliens evading capture are different, said Susan Kibbe, executive director of the South Texas Property Rights Association. The smugglers are armed, and the illegal aliens are often convicted criminals.

CLICK HERE FOR FULL STORY & SCROLL DOWN TO VIEW VIDEO

“It’s very disturbing when you have smugglers that have a connection with the cartels, on U.S. soil carrying high-powered, semi-automatic rifles,” Kibbe told The Epoch Times. She obtained the video from law enforcement after the smugglers posted it on Tik Tok.

Federal and local law enforcement are advising landowners to carry firearms on their own property, she said.

“These [smugglers] have become a lot more militant,” said Scott Frazier, Texas Farm Bureau board member, during a roundtable with GOP congress members on April 7. “You’re kind of scared of them. You’re kind of scared to be out on these ranches by yourself nowadays. Definitely scared to have your family here.”

The Rio Grande Valley Border Patrol sector in south Texas is the busiest in the country for illegal crossings. Since Oct. 1, 2020, agents in the sector have arrested 1,625 criminal aliens—almost four times the number during the same time period in the previous year.

“These criminal aliens were convicted here in the United States for crimes other than immigration, ranging from murder, sexual crimes, assault, and narcotics trafficking,” according to a statement from the Rio Grande border sector.

Currently, more than 1,000 illegal aliens are evading capture by Border Patrol each day along the border, and many will end up traversing private ranchlands to get further into the interior of the United States.

Kibbe said the South Texas Property Rights Association was formed in 2006 in response to border security issues. The group advocates for property owners to be able to enjoy and profit off their land.

She said problems with illegal aliens and smuggling have always existed, but “not to this extent.”

“There’s areas of Texas that have never experienced this before—like in the Del Rio Border Patrol sector. They’re getting overrun, and they don’t have the infrastructure that the Rio Grande Valley sector has,” she said.

“It’s a massive increase, and it pretty much aligns with the election and then the inauguration.”

Kibbe’s association is advocating for a return to Trump-era policies such as “Remain in Mexico,” which held illegal immigrants in Mexico while their case was adjudicated. President Joe Biden halted the policy and reverted to “catch-and-release,” which allows illegal immigrants to live and work in the United States until their immigration case is heard, often years in the future.

Warning to Parents

The small town of Cotulla, 70 miles north of Laredo on I-35 toward San Antonio, is being affected so much by illegal alien smuggling that the local school district sent a letter to warn parents.

The letter warns parents and guardians, “Please be watchful of your children as they are playing outside, walking home from school, or generally out of the house.”

The April 1 letter is signed by Cotulla Independent School District superintendent Jack Seals and La Salle County Sheriff Anthony Zertuche.

“Both our communities and the rural areas of the county have experienced a great increase in law enforcement chases and ‘bailouts,'” the letter reads.

Bailouts happen when law enforcement attempts to stop a vehicle that is transporting illegal aliens, but the driver stops and the passengers scatter before they can be detained.

Zertuche said his deputies have been responding to eight to 10 car chases per day in the county, a “big increase” over the past. “These chases sometimes end in bailouts inside the city limits,” the letter reads. “The Sheriff’s office has been on top of these and are apprehending all of those trying to flee after bailing out.”

The letter says the sheriff’s office has increased patrols around the schools, but advises parents to lock vehicles and property.

Just one facet of the problems originating from current open-border policies and executive orders simply aimed at reversing president Trump's sucess in securing the southern border by separating and deporting the many undesirable illegals in order to protect US citizens.

Illegal Immigrant Who Was Ordered to Be Deported Convicted of Child Rape

By Janita Kan
April 17, 2021 Updated: April 17, 2021

An illegal immigrant, who was ordered to be deported in 2016, has been sentenced to 45 years in prison for forcible rape of a child.

Fredys Aguilar-Menjivar, 31, from El Salvador was convicted of three counts of rape of a child under 14 and one count of child molestation earlier this month, the Monterey district attorney’s office said in a statement.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) confirmed to The Epoch Times that Aguilar-Menjivar, who resides in California, had been ordered removed from the United States by an immigration judge on June 28, 2016. But according to Breitbart, he was never deported. The Epoch Times has asked ICE to clarify whether agents had made any attempt to deport Aguilar-Menjivar between June 2016 and March 2020.

Following his arrest, ICE issued an immigration detainer on Aguilar-Menjivar with California’s Monterey County Jail on March 19, 2020.

California is a “sanctuary” state because it prohibits state and local law enforcement officers from sharing information about an illegal immigrant’s release from custody, personal information, and physical description with federal immigration agents. Under Senate Bill 54 (SB 54), state and local officers are also barred from transferring these individuals to immigration agents unless in exempted circumstances like under a court warrant. The law also includes exemptions for illegal immigrants convicted of a serious or violent felony.

The Monterey district attorney’s office said the sexual assault occurred repeatedly between August 2018 to March 2020—two years after the deportation order. The child, who is a family member, was under 14 years old when the offense began. The crimes were discovered by another family member during a party in which the child had attempted to stop Aguilar-Menjivar, the prosecutor’s office said. But the 31-year-old threatened to hurt her and her parents if she screamed.

Aguilar-Menjivar will also be required to register as a sex offender for life and is prohibited from contacting the child for a maximum period of ten years under law.

Former President Donald Trump’s administration had made efforts to strike down SB 54 and escalated a case challenging the law to the Supreme Court in 2019. But in June 2020, the nation’s top court refused the request to hear the case although Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito said they would have granted the petition for review.

The news comes after President Joe Biden’s administration issued “interim enforcement priorities” for federal immigration agencies as the administration continues finalizing its policies. These priorities include narrowing immigration enforcement to three categories: individuals who have been engaged in or suspected of terrorism or espionage; immigrants who crossed into the United States illegally on or after Nov. 1, 2020; and individuals convicted of an “aggravated felony.”

The guidance is temporary, lasting for three months, until Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas can issue new enforcement guidelines for the department.

The temporary enforcement guidance has already met with challenges by Texas and Lousiana who argue that they failed to prioritize detention of criminal aliens with final orders of removal, criminal aliens convicted of drug offenses, or criminal aliens convicted of crimes of moral turpitude.

The result of implementing the memoranda, the lawsuit argues, has led to ICE rescinding detainer requests related to incarcerated criminal aliens, not issuing detainer requests for illegal aliens subject to mandatory removal, and the release of such individuals from federal detention facilities in Louisiana and Texas.

The Biden administration is currently facing an influx of illegal border crossings, which saw thousands of unaccompanied minors flooding across the southern border. Lawmakers have warned that these children are subjected to human tragedies such as cramped conditions and assault.

Executive Branch
Biden Administration Orders ICE, Border Patrol to Stop Using Term ‘Illegal Alien’

By Jack Phillips
April 19, 2021 Updated: April 19, 2021

The White House has ordered officials in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to stop using several terms, including “illegal alien,” “alien,” and “assimilation,” The Epoch Times confirmed.

Memos sent by Tae Johnson, acting director of ICE, and Troy Miller, acting head of CBP, were distributed to top leaders within the two agencies.

Terms that are to be changed include “alien,” which is now “noncitizen” or “migrant”; “unaccompanied alien children” is now “noncitizen unaccompanied children”; “undocumented alien” is now “undocumented noncitizen,” “undocumented individual,” or simply “migrant”; and “illegal alien” is now “undocumented noncitizen,” “undocumented individual,” or simply “migrant,” according to the memos obtained by The Epoch Times.

In addition, “assimilation” has been changed to “integration,” or “civic integration.”

“As the nation’s premier law enforcement agency, we set a tone and example for our country and partners across the world,” Miller said in the CBP memo. “We enforce our nation’s laws while also maintaining the dignity of every individual with whom we interact. The words we use matter and will serve to further confer that dignity to those in our custody.”

Johnson, meanwhile, issued a similar comment.

“This guidance,” he said, “applies to communications such as agency outreach efforts, internal documents, and overall communications with stakeholders, partners, and the general public.”

On social media and in statements, ICE and Border Patrol often use the term “illegal alien” to refer to individuals who have been taken into custody after illegally crossing into the United States. Previously, the agencies and other federal agencies used the term “illegal immigration” to refer to the phenomenon.

Immigration advocacy groups and Democrats typically favor terms such as “noncitizens,” “undocumented,” “unauthorized,” or “without status,” while eschewing terms with the “illegal” moniker. Previous proponents of the “illegal immigrant” term have said that “undocumented” doesn’t properly convey that such individuals have, in fact, crossed the border and remain in the United States illegally.

Immigration advocates also say the terms “illegal immigrant” or “illegal alien” are dehumanizing, while the latter evokes images of UFOs and space aliens.

The two memos appear to be part of a broader push by the Biden administration to scrap Trump-era immigration rules, including the “Remain in Mexico” policy, and halt construction of the U.S.–Mexico border wall. However, Republicans and some Democrats have argued that former President Donald Trump’s policies and messaging were effective, and rejecting them has led to a historic surge in illegal immigrants along the southern border.

Biden proposed removing the term “alien” from federal immigration laws in a citizenship bill he sent to Congress on Jan. 20, his first day as president, according to the White House. It would be replaced by “noncitizen.”

In March, meanwhile, Border Patrol agents apprehended 172,000 illegal immigrants, according to data provided by the agency. The head of the National Border Patrol Council, Brandon Judd, said it may have been “the biggest surge that we’ve ever seen in the history of the Border Patrol.”

The Washington Post first reported on the administration’s order over the weekend.

Biden: Surge in Illegal Immigration Along Border Is a ‘Crisis,’ Will Increase Refugee Cap

By Jack Phillips
April 18, 2021 Updated: April 18, 2021


President Joe Biden has for the first time described the recent surge of illegal immigrants along the U.S.-Mexico border as a crisis, in the midst of Republican-led pressure to do so.

Over the weekend, Biden was asked by a reporter in Delaware about his policy on refugee admissions.

“We’re going to increase the number [of refugees allowed into the country]. The problem was that the refugee part was working on the crisis that ended up on the border with young people,” Biden said in response. “We couldn’t do two things at once. But now we are going to increase the number.”

There has been a public-relations battle on the language surrounding the unprecedented surge at the southern border since Biden took office. Republicans have pressed Biden and White House officials to refer to the situation as a crisis, while his surrogates have refused to do so, preferring to call it a “challenge.” Some news outlets, including The Associated Press, have told their editors and reporters not to refer to the surge as a “crisis.”

Data provided by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) showed that agents have apprehended 172,000 illegal aliens along the border in March, leading Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, to say it is “the biggest surge that we’ve ever seen in the history of the Border Patrol.”

Republican lawmakers and governors have accused Biden of facilitating the border crisis by reversing several of President Donald Trump’s orders meant to curb illegal immigration, including border wall construction and the “Remain in Mexico” policy. The governments of Mexico and Guatemala have also faulted the Biden White House for sending out what they have said is mixed messaging on immigration.

“I’m nobody to make a judgment here, but I believe in the first weeks in the Biden administration, messages were confusing,” Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei said in an interview with MSNBC last week. “They were compassionate messages that were understood by people in our country, especially to coyotes [border smugglers] to tell families, ‘We’ll take the children, the children can go in, and once they’re there, the children can call their parents.’”

On April 16, the Biden administration released a memo to keep in place the Trump-era 15,000 cap on refugees who can be allowed into the United States.

Hours later, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki issued a statement reversing the administration’s announcement and asserted that the order was “the subject of some confusion.” The statement was posted after left-wing members of Congress, including “Squad” members Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), criticized the administration’s move.

The Epoch Times reached out to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for comment.

The Senator Nobody Voted for Has a Curious Plan for Joe Biden’s America

Lloyd Billingsley
April 24, 2021 Updated: April 25, 2021

With Vice President Kamala Harris in the “Biden-Harris” Administration, California Gov. Gavin Newsom appointed Alex Padilla to replace Harris in the Senate. Both politicians have back stories that people across the nation and around the world should know.

Sen. Alex Padilla (D-Calif.) was a city councilman in Los Angeles from 1999–2006, and a state senator from 2006–2014. The following year Padilla became California’s Secretary of State, and after the 2016 election, Padilla refused to cooperate with a federal probe of voter fraud, a longstanding practice in California.

As a State Department investigation discovered, false-documented illegals have been voting in local, state, and federal elections for decades. Back in 1996, 642 illegals voted for Democrat Loretta Sanchez, who defeated Republican Robert Dornan by fewer than 1,000 votes. In recent years, voter fraud has been surging through the state’s imported electorate.

According to a study by scholars at MIT and Yale, more than 22 million people are illegally present in the United States. Pew Research pegged the figure at 11 million, more likely the number illegally present in California alone. For example, when he announced a lawsuit against the Trump administration in 2019, Attorney General Xavier Becerra displayed a sign claiming 10 million “immigrants” in California.

When illegal aliens get driver’s licenses, the California Department of Motor Vehicles automatically registers them to vote. In 2015, Padilla told the Los Angeles Times, “at the latest, for the 2018 election cycle, I expect millions of new voters on the rolls in the state of California.” True to form, by March 2018, the DMV “motor voter” plan had given licenses to more than one million illegals. Secretary of state Padilla wouldn’t say how many illegals voted in 2018, but his previous reference to “millions” provided a ballpark figure. Many more were on the way.

From 2016–2018, “caravans” of illegals began showing up at U.S. ports of entry in California, the place on the U.S. border most distant from Central America. Once in California, the acquisition of a driver’s license makes any illegal a registered voter. In March of 2020, Gov. Gavin Newsom ordered mail-in ballots for every registered voter in the state. That included the millions of new voters Padilla celebrated.

As in 2016 and 2018, the secretary of state failed to reveal how many illegals voted, hardly the only issue in need of investigation. California is also a pioneer of ballot harvesting, and that came into play with Kamala Harris, UC Hastings College of Law grad. Democrat queenmaker Willie Brown struck up a romantic relationship with Harris, 30 years his junior. Brown set up Harris in a lucrative sinecure and backed her run for district attorney in San Francisco.

In 2010, Harris was so poorly regarded that the Sacramento Bee, a veritable Democrat newsletter, endorsed Republican Steve Cooley, district attorney of Los Angeles County. Cooley held the lead on election night but the same Service Employees International Union (SEIU) drones who ran Harris’ campaign dredged up enough provisional ballots to give Harris a victory of less than one percent some three weeks later. If any Californian thought that was ballot fraud it would be hard to blame them.

President Barack Obama called Harris “the best-looking attorney general in the country,” but her record was undistinguished, especially on public corruption. When whistleblowers called for a criminal investigation over trouble with the new Bay Bridge, Harris took no action. In 2020, Harris often clashed with Delaware Democrat Joe Biden, particularly on his fondness for segregationists, but Biden wound up giving her the nod.

Newsom appointed Padilla to replace Harris in the Senate. For a man nobody voted for, Padilla proved rather hostile to senators who had in fact been elected by the people.

“Donald Trump, and a lot of his enablers, must be held accountable,” Padilla told CalMatters in January. Asked if he would vote to censure or expel Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), Padilla said, “Yes, I think they have to be held accountable. … I think the nation would be best served if they were no longer in the Senate.” Padilla recently went on record that the Electoral College is America’s “original sin” and “one of those long-lasting things that need to be corrected.”

In Padilla’s vision, the Electoral College of the Constitution is replaced by an imported electorate. The illegals vote for Democrats and in return get a host of government benefits plus protection from deportation through sanctuary laws. That arrangement is likely what President Joe Biden has in mind when he touts California as a model for the nation.

As the Delaware Democrat said in 2014, illegal immigrants are “already Americans,” so the border is essentially meaningless. The surging caravans are basically drives to bring in more voters. The rule of the Democrat party replaces the rule of law, and what goes around comes around.

When Harris moved on to the U.S. Senate, she was replaced as attorney general by former Rep. Xavier Becerra, once on Hillary Clinton’s shortlist as a running mate. Becerra is now back in Washington as Health and Human Services’ boss. Under the Biden-Harris administration, the nation is looking more like California by the day.

Three illegal alien MS-13 gang members in the sanctuary state of New York have been charged with murdering a 31-year-old mother in a brutal attack.

MS-13 Gang members 20-year-old Rigel Yohairo, 22-year-old Allan Lopez, and 21-year-old Jose Sarmiento – all of whom are illegal aliens, Breitbart News has learned – were arrested and charged with murder, criminal possession of a weapon, concealment of a human corpse, and tampering with evidence this month in the death of Nazareth Tamer-Claure, the mother of an eight-year-old boy.

Looks like all but one have abandoned ship and he's busy splainin' the difference between socialism and communism to the rest of us wokeless folk. wink

When he gets through there, maybe he'll grace us with his presence here and splain the difference between his mentor's letters to heads of ICE and CBP regarding change in terminology used in their departments to "undocumented" from illegal. Heck, maybe he'll tell us about substituting "noncitizen" or "migrant" for "alien," and "integration" for "assimilation," while he's at it.

Heck, I been speakin English for over 80 years, but find I'm having trouble understanding this new Wokelish!

How TSA Explains Allowing Illegal Immigrants to Fly With You

Fred Lucas / @FredLucasWH / May 04, 2021

The Transportation Security Administration has an “established process” for identifying illegal immigrants who board domestic flights to a new home in America, a spokeswoman told The Daily Signal, although the Biden administration formally refers to this population as “undocumented.”

The TSA was responding to a Daily Signal report Friday about such commercial flights carrying illegal aliens—specifically one that departed McAllen International Airport in Texas the day before—and the security waiver necessary for them to board without showing required identification.

Amid the new surge of illegal immigrants at the southern border, the Biden administration has facilitated putting some of them on flights to cross the United States to new destinations at taxpayers’ expense.

Although they are in the United States without government-recognized documentation after unlawfully crossing the border, the federal government allows groups of illegal immigrants to go through TSA security checkpoints in airports.

>>> EXCLUSIVE: Illegal Immigrants Fly American, Courtesy of Biden Border Policy

In an email Saturday to The Daily Signal, spokeswoman Patricia Mancha wrote:

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has an established process to verify the identity of individuals who have received a Notice to Appear from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and are ticketed for travel on a commercial airline.

TSA will continue to coordinate with CBP and use resources available to the agency to confirm the identity of every traveler to ensure that transportation security is not compromised.

Mancha said the Transportation Security Administration identifies illegal immigrants using “accepted forms of immigration-issued documents.”

These include the I-94 form for international travelers visiting the United States legally.

The TSA spokeswoman also cited the I-862 form, which is a Department of Homeland notice to appear in immigration court for illegal immigrants who have been released from detention.

Historically, many illegal immigrants who are released into the country don’t face a hearing in immigration court for months or years.

Mancha also referred to Form I-385, a so-called Alien Booking Record used by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. This document could include information obtained from the arresting or delivering officer such as name, sex, age, date of birth, birthplace, country of citizenship, and medical issues.

However, many illegal immigrants are released into the U.S. soon after being apprehended at the border, said Mark Morgan, Acting Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection during the Trump administration after serving a short stint running Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

“There is no way to 100% guarantee the identity of everyone coming across our borders illegally, especially when law enforcement organization’s facilities are dangerously overcrowded and are being pressured to release them as fast as possible,” Morgan said of the illegal immigrants caught at the border. “The room for fraud is wide.”

Morgan was on an American Airlines flight Thursday out of the McAllen airport when he saw 14 illegal immigrant families or groups board the plane.

An “established process” for non-illegal aliens exists for the TSA, on a case-by-case basis, to allow individuals to fly even without identification, but they must undergo a lengthy individualized screening process before eventually being allowed to board a flight to their final destination. This would include those whose identification was lost, forgotten, or stolen.

“And it’s one thing to do a one-off for an American citizen where there are numerous ways we can verify someone’s identity through a network of U.S. controlled and operated systems vs. a systematic ‘waiver’ for an entire class of individuals—where no such equivalent verification systems exist and with no limit or end in sight,” Morgan told The Daily Signal.

Morgan currently is a visiting fellow in national security at The Heritage Foundation, the parent organization of The Daily Signal.

Driven by the new border crisis, Customs and Border Protection facilities have released some families who unlawfully entered the country to nongovernmental organizations and coordinated efforts to transport them, Morgan said.

These NGOs receive federal, state, and private funding, so taxpayers indirectly pay for the flights.

The flights occurred during previous administrations, including the Trump administration, when detention facilities for illegal aliens were packed. But this process has accelerated with the current surge at the border, which critics have attributed to President Joe Biden’s rhetoric.

The Department of Homeland Security and the TSA, which is part of that agency, did not respond to numerous inquiries from The Daily Signal before it published the initial report Friday. The White House also did not respond to requests for comment.

Among unanswered questions is how many such flights carrying how many illegal immigrants have flown out of McAllen and other border city airports since Biden took office Jan. 20, where the illegal immigrants went, and how much these flights have cost taxpayers. Nor is it clear how many, if any, of the illegal immigrants are tested for COVID-19.

The Biden administration reversed most of the border security policies of the Trump administration through executive order—halting deportations and stopping construction of the border wall, among other measures.

Illegal immigrants, interviewed in recent news accounts, said they crossed the U.S.-Mexico border anticipating more accommodating policies from the new president. Fewer than 20% of illegal immigrants that encounter Customs and Border Protection agents have a credible claim that they fear conditions in their home country, according to government data.
