Texas Will Keep Busing Illegal Immigrants Out of State Until Biden Administration ‘Wakes Up’: Lt. Gov.

By Tom Ozimek
September 17, 2022 Updated: September 18, 2022

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said Saturday that the Lone Star state will keep transporting illegal immigrants to other locations both as a wake-up call to Washington and as a way of “fighting back” against the Biden administration’s lax border policies.

“They’ve been dumping people in America for a long time, a long time,” Patrick told Fox News in an interview that aired Sept. 17.

“And now Texas is saying, we’re fighting back. We’re going to send them to your neighborhood and we’re going to keep those buses coming until finally this administration wakes up,” he added.

Patrick said that Texas is now spending around $4 billion a year on border security, while normally the state spends around $400 million.

“This is a financial burden on us. But more importantly, it’s an invasion of our state,” he said.

Patrick’s remarks come as Texas has continued to bus illegal immigrants to locations out of state and as Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis sent several migrant planes to the wealthy enclave of Martha’s Vineyard.

“Obviously there’s going to be buses like Texas is doing” and “there may be some more flights” containing illegal aliens, DeSantis told a news conference in Florida on Sept. 16.

DeSantis’s actions sparked backlash from Democrats, with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) calling the decision to fly illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard “repulsive and cruel.”

Meanwhile, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said on Sept. 15 that two buses filled with illegal immigrants were dropped off in Washington near Vice President Kamala Harris’s home.

Abbott said in a statement that the buses were sent in response to recent claims made by Harris—who was appointed last year by President Joe Biden to oversee U.S. border security—that the southern border is secure.

“VP Harris claims our border is ‘secure’ [and] denies the crisis,” Abbott wrote on Sept. 15. “We’re sending migrants to her backyard to call on the Biden Administration to do its job [and] secure the border.”

Video footage taken from the scene showed throngs of men, women, and children carrying items including pillows, blankets, and clothing outside the gates of Harris’s official residence.

Another bus carrying illegal immigrants arrived outside Harris’s home in Washington on Sept. 17, while another wave of buses also arrived in New York City.

Texas Gov. Abbott said last week that the state had bused over 7,900 illegal immigrants to the U.S. capital since April, and over 2,200 to New York City since early August.

New York City ‘Nearing Its Breaking Point’ With Influx of Illegal Immigrants From Texas: Mayor

By Zachary Stieber
September 15, 2022 Updated: September 15, 2022

New York City’s shelter system is close to being overwhelmed by the continued influx of illegal immigrants from Texas, the city’s mayor said on Sept. 14.

“In this new and unforeseen reality, where we expect thousands more to arrive every week going forward, the city’s system is nearing its breaking point,” Mayor Eric Adams, a Democrat, said in a statement.

New York has recorded over 11,000 illegal immigrants entering its shelter system in the past several months, with others going into the homes of family members or friends. A number have come from Texas, which started bussing asylum seekers who were released by federal authorities to Democrat-run “sanctuary cities” earlier this year.

U.S. authorities tell the illegal immigrants to go to court at a later date for the asylum claims to be adjudicated. Most claims are denied and many immigrants don’t show up at court. Authorities rarely deport illegal immigrants, especially under Biden.
Shelter

New York has a law that mandates state and local authorities provide shelter to “the needy.” That means “every asylum seeker that comes to New York will have shelter,” Adams told reporters in a briefing on Thursday.

But officials say they are “reassessing” the city’s practices in following the law because when it was put into place, officials could not “have foreseen” the current situation, a city lawyer told reporters.

Those practices include communications and operational methods.

Adams called Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and other governors who have followed his lead in bussing illegal immigrants to cities “rogue governors” and said officials are trying to figure out various ways to respond to the governors, including legally.

New York is receiving four to six busses per day, according to Manuel Castro, the city’s commissioner of immigrant affairs.
‘Blueprint’

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey has also ordered busses to cities while Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis just had authorities fly illegal immigrants to Massachusetts.

“The Republican party has created a blueprint that all of them are starting to follow,” Adams said.

A spokesperson for Abbott did not respond to a request for comment.

He and other governors have said they’re transporting the immigrants to try to force President Joe Biden, a Democrat, to step up enforcement at the U.S.–Mexico border.

Biden’s administration has rejected calls for help from Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser and hasn’t appeared to offer assistance to New York or Chicago.

Adams was speaking Thursday at a space described as a “resource navigation center” for the illegal immigrants. The centers are enabling access to legal services, school enrollment, and healthcare.

“‘We’ll continue to welcome asylum seekers with open arms and provide them the resources they need,” Adams said.

Agents apprehended more than 52,000 migrants who illegally crossed the Mexican border into the Texas-based Del Rio Sector in August, according to a source within U.S. Customs and Border Protection. This is an increase over the record-setting number of apprehensions set in July in what has become the nation’s busiest Border Patrol sector.

A source operating under the umbrella of CBP told Breitbart Texas that agents in the Del Rio Sector apprehended nearly 1,700 migrants per day in August. This raised the number of migrants apprehended in the sector from 50,000 in July to more than 52,000 in August — an increase of four percent.

In August 2021, Del Rio Sector agents apprehended 32,362 migrants including more than 18,000 single adults, 13,000 unaccompanied minors, and 800 family units. The August 2022 apprehensions represent an increase of approximately 63 percent over the same month in 2021.

The dangerous crossings of migrants across the Rio Grande into Eagle Pass and Del Rio, Texas, led to the deaths of dozens of migrants in August.

Late in August, a three-year-old boy and his three-month-old brother drowned after being swept away from their parents while crossing the river near Eagle Pass, Breitbart Texas reported.

The death of the toddler and near-drowning of the infant follows reports from Del Rio Sector officials of six other drowning deaths during a five-day period ending on August 20, Breitbart Texas reported. Agents tell Breitbart they are seeing death rates exceeding one per day for extended periods of time.

The number of migrants who die while crossing or shortly after crossing the border near Eagle Pass caused a local funeral home to stop accepting migrant remains, Breitbart reported.

In response to the spike in migrant crossings and deaths in the Eagle Pass area, Texas Department of Public Safety troopers and National Guard soldiers began heavy patrols on the Rio Grande.

The banks of the Rio Grande were flush with Texas Department of Public Safety troopers and Texas Army National Guard posted locally. Simultaneously, soldiers in patrol boats traversed the Rio Grande hoping to deflect migrant crossings away from the city. The show of force appeared to push the larger migrant groups away, if only temporarily.

The massive number of migrants crossing into the Del Rio Sector also led to overcrowding in detention facilities. This led to the shutdown of border security field operations from time to time and Border Patrol officials pulled agents off the line to process, care for, and transport migrants became a priority.

Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agents Jason D. Owens appeared to respond to this article regarding the shutdowns during his weekend recap report the following week.

“When we have the large number of people in custody that puts us over our established capacity, we do have to collapse down some operations temporarily to decompress what we’re holding in custody,” Owens stated.

This also removes agents from the border who could assist in preventing the drowning deaths of migrants in the Rio Grande or in the timely recovery of the bodies of drowned migrants.

On September 1, nine more migrants drowned as a large group of more than 50 attempted to cross the rain-swollen Rio Grande. The migrants reported many were swept away.

The massive number of crossings into the Del Rio Sector appears to be continuing in September, the source told Breitbart.

As an example, Eagle Pass agents apprehended a large group of approximately 300 migrants who crossed on Saturday morning.

Sen. Cruz Urges DeSantis to Send Illegal Immigrants to 3 New Democrat-Run Areas
By Jack Phillips
September 18, 2022 Updated: September 18, 2022

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) urged Republican governors to send illegal immigrants to three other Democrat-run areas after Gov. Ron DeSantis’s well-publicized move to send them to Martha’s Vineyard last week.

On Twitter, the Republican senator urged DeSantis and Texas Gov. Greg Abbot to send illegal aliens to Nantucket, Massachusetts; Palo Alto, California; and Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.

Like Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket is often used as a vacation spot for the wealthy and powerful. Meanwhile, Rehoboth Beach is where President Joe Biden has a vacation house, and Palo Alto, a city located in Silicon Valley, is home to several large tech companies.

For months now, Abbott has been sending illegal immigrants from the U.S.-Mexico border to Democrat-run areas including New York City, Chicago, and Washington, D.C.—all “sanctuary” cities. The leaders in those areas have sounded the alarm and said their municipalities cannot handle the influx of illegal immigrants, prompting cries of hypocrisy.

On Sept. 15, Abbott sent several buses filled with illegal migrants to Washington before they were dropped off outside the official residence of Vice President Kamala Harris. Around the same time, DeSantis sent 50 illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard, where former President Barack Obama has a sprawling estate. Within a day, the governor of Massachusetts activated the National Guard and transported the people to a military base on Cape Cod.

Top Democrats, including officials in the White House, have condemned the move, alleging DeSantis and Abbott are engaging in human trafficking. But the two governors argue that their states cannot handle the massive surge in illegal immigration, have said the federal government has the sole authority to carry out deporations, and that the Biden administration’s lax immigration rules are what caused the influx.

Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democat, accused DeSantis of “kidnapping” the illegal immigrants, adding on Twitter: “Clearly, transporting families, including children, across state lines under false pretenses is morally reprehensible, but it may also be illegal.”

The governor also sent a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland and alleged that some “individuals who were transported to Martha’s Vineyard have alleged that a recruiter induced them to accept the offer of travel based on false representations,” although that assertion was disputed by DeSantis in a news conference on Sept. 16.

Cruz suggested to Fox News last week that top Democrats don’t have their priorities in order. He made note of an incident that unfolded earlier this year during which more than 50 illegal aliens were found dead inside a truck near San Antonio.

“You know, the Democrats did not think it was a humanitarian crisis when we pulled over 50 bodies in body bags out of a truck in Texas of illegal immigrants who died because the smugglers let them die of heat exposure,” Cruz said. “And yet, suddenly 50 illegal immigrants show up in lily-white Martha’s Vineyard, where rich liberals and billionaires sip Chardonnay, and it is, it is World War II.”

6 More Buses of Illegal Immigrants Arrive in New York City: Mayor

By Jack Phillips
September 18, 2022 Updated: September 18, 2022

Six more buses filled with illegal immigrants arrived in New York City on Sunday morning as Democrat Mayor Eric Adams condemned the move.

When asked on CNN about GOP governors busing illegal aliens to other parts of the country, including New York, in recent months, Adams claimed they are engaging in “the erosion of basic human rights.”

“Well, I think it’s a message for the entire country,” Adams told CNN’s Jake Tapper on Sunday. “You see, this is their way of covering up what many people have been really concerned about the erosion of basic human rights. We’re seeing crisis calls for coordination.”

In the interview, Adams did not make mention of the Biden administration’s immigration policies. Republicans say that the White House’s shift on immigration has triggered a massive surge in illegal immigration, and they have no choice but to transport them to other parts of the country.

The administration, which oversees U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Customs and Border Protection, is the only U.S. entity that has the ability to deport people. Governors do not have such authority.

After President Joe Biden took office last year, he immediately moved to scrap several key, Trump-era immigration rules. They included ending construction of the former president’s signature border wall, reissuing provisions established under the 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, and rolling back interior immigration enforcement priorities that were implemented by former President Donald Trump.

Adams confirmed to CNN that six more buses filled with illegal immigrants from Texas arrived in New York City on Sunday morning. The mayor said that the city is stretched thin and cannot deal with the influx.

“We received a minimum of six buses early this morning. Over 11,000 individuals, asylum seekers and migrants have come to the city already,” Adams told Tapper. “It is time for us to coordinate this humanitarian crisis that our country is facing.”

For months, Abbott has said that his administration as well as Texas border towns have been overwhelmed by illegal immigrants, adding that the state doesn’t have the resources to deal with them.

A report issued last month from the Federation for American Immigration Reform found that 18 months after Biden took office, more than 4.9 million illegal aliens have crossed into the United States. It noted that it’s roughly the equivalent of the entire population of Ireland.

“In that time, the Biden administration has blamed an unprecedented surge of illegal immigration on all sorts of external factors, except their own sabotage of our nation’s immigration laws. The endless flow of illegal aliens and the incursion of lethal narcotics pouring across our border will not end until this administration demonstrates a willingness to enforce our laws,” said Dan Stein, the head of FAIR.

Last week, both Abbott and fellow Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis drew headlines when they transported illegal immigrants to Vice President Kamala Harris’s residence in Washington as well as Martha’s Vineyard, respectively.

DeSantis argued that the move to transport the aliens to the Massachusetts island was necessary because Florida isn’t a “sanctuary” state. Hours later, the governor of Massachusetts activated the National Guard and transported the some 50 illegal immigrants to a military base in Cape Cod.

Exclusive: UN Funds Migrant Wave Flooding to the U.S.

Neil Munro18 Jan 2022

The public reporting as to how much the United States, through the State Department, gives IOM [International Organization for Migration] and how many got it is opaque at best. President Joe Biden’s 2022 budget calls for $10 billion in humanitarian assistance “to support vulnerable people abroad.” But there’s no detailed breakout.

A Fiscal Year 2019 summary (starting page 37) by the State Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM), which provides U.S. funding to the IOM and many other United Nations agencies, offers one clue of the pre-expansion levels. IOM spent more than $60 million in 2019 for activities in the northern part of South America, Central America, and Mexico during the so-called “caravan migrant crisis” earlier that year, the fiscal year report said.

State Department-funneled money helped IOM provide 29,000 people in the Western Hemisphere with cash and voucher assistance and supported 75 shelter waystations, the State Department report states on page 42, much like the one I visited in Reynosa. Along the northern border of Mexico in July 2019, at the height of a “caravan” crisis, the IOM provided 600 beds and essential items to the Mexican government and helped it expand existing shelters and build new ones to accommodate the “asylum seekers.”

Venezuela Empties Prisons, Sends Criminals to US Border: House Republicans

By Frank Fang
September 23, 2022 Updated: September 26, 2022

Venezuela is deliberately releasing prisoners, among them violent criminals, and having them travel to the U.S. southern border, a development that prompted 14 House Republicans to write to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

Rep. Troy Nehls (R-Texas), who is leading the Republican effort to have Mayorkas answer questions, said in the Sept. 22 letter that the decision by the Maduro regime has put the United States “in grave danger.”

“We write you with serious concern about a recent U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) intelligence report received by Border Patrol that instructs agents to look for violent criminals from Venezuela among the migrant caravans heading towards the U.S.-Mexico border,” the letter says, citing a recent report from Breitbart.

The outlet reported on Sept. 18 that it had reviewed the DHS intelligence report from an unnamed source within U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). The report warned that released prisoners—including those convicted of murder, rape, and extortion—had been seen within migrant caravans traveling from Tapachula, Mexico, to the southern border, as recently as July.

The report also said the Bolivarian National Intelligence Service, Venezuela’s intelligence agency, may have played a role in deliberately releasing prisoners.

Hours after Breitbart published the report, Nehls took to Twitter to announce that he had obtained confirmation from the DHS.

“DHS confirms that Venezuela empties prisons and sends violent criminals to our southern border,” Nehls wrote. “President Trump warned us about this years ago.”

Former President Donald Trump issued such a warning several times in 2021. He did it again last week while speaking to radio show host Hugh Hewitt, when he said America had become a “dumping ground” as other nations were “emptying their prisons into the United States.”

(Stefani Reynolds/AFP via Getty Images)

Nehls later commented on the Breitbart report during an interview with Fox News contributor Sara Carter on Sept. 25.

“This bombshell report confirms what we’ve known for years,” Nehls said. “Our adversaries despise what America stands for and take pride in emptying their prisons filled with the most violent and sick individuals to walk the earth and send them to our southern border, where they know they’ll have no trouble getting in.

“Our overworked Border Patrol agents can only do so much when President [Joe] Biden gives everyone a no-strings-attached invitation into this country.”
Illegal Immigration

The letter comes as the United States is seeing an influx of illegal immigrants along the U.S.–Mexico border. According to CBP data, the number of illegal aliens arriving at the southern border in fiscal year 2022 surpassed 2 million in August, with unprecedented numbers coming from Cuba, Nicaragua, and Venezuela.

The letter points out that there have been more than 130,000 encounters with Venezuelan nationals between October 2021 and July 2022.

“As a result of the Biden Administration’s disastrous border policies, it is unknown how many of the violent Venezuelan prisoners have been released into the interior of the U.S., as identifying Venezuelans with criminal records is nearly impossible unless the individual admits their records to U.S. authorities,” the letter says. “This will undoubtedly put our country in grave danger.”

The 14 Republicans want Mayorkas to answer more than 10 questions about topics including the precautions DHS is taking to prevent these Venezuelan criminals from entering the United States.

“Have any of the Venezuelan nationals encountered at the southern border this year been suspected to be released prisoners?” the questions read. “Does DHS have a projected headcount of how many released Venezuelan prisoners are expected to enter the U.S.?

“Do you have reason to believe that the release of the convicts could be a purposeful geopolitical move specifically intended to impact U.S. national security?”

Nehls wrote on Twitter, “We need transparency and accountability from this administration.”

Top ICE Official Admits Biden Administration Detaining, Removing Fewer Illegal Immigrants

By Zachary Stieber
September 22, 2022 Updated: September 22, 2022

A top U.S. immigration enforcement official has acknowledged that President Joe Biden’s administration is detaining and removing fewer illegal immigrants than earlier administrations.

“Since President Biden became president on January 20, 2021, ERO is removing less aliens, correct?” Florida Chief Deputy Attorney General John Guard asked Corey Price, executive associate director for Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO), which is part of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

“That’s correct,” Price responded.

“Director, ICE currently is removing less aliens from the United States than it has in the last decade, right?” Guard asked.

“I do not have the last 10 years’ data available. But it is less than at least the last four years that I have here,” Price said.

ICE only detained 45,680 illegal immigrants in 2021, about half as many as it did in 2020. And in 2022, the agency has only detained about 48,200 illegal immigrants.

Price was speaking during a deposition for a case filed against the Biden administration by Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody.

Price was later shown an email sent soon after Biden took office to top immigration officials, including acting ICE Director Tae Johnson, by Henry Lucero, the executive associate director of ERO.

Lucero informed the officials that the Biden administration’s change in immigration enforcement policies would likely reduce detention numbers by half.

“And given the data that we just looked at … Lucero [and other officials] were almost right on the money on their predictions, correct?” Guard asked.

“That appears correct,” Price said.

ICE, its parent agency, the Department of Homeland Security, and the White House did not respond to requests for comment.

“Our deposition provides even more proof that the Biden administration is intentionally underenforcing federal immigration law in a way that has never been seen. At every phase of the process, Biden is purposely failing to enforce the law and detain and remove inadmissible immigrants,” Moody, a Republican, said in a statement.

“Career ICE officials warned the administration that their reckless policies would drastically cut enforcement and still Biden continued to implement them—proving yet again, we only have Biden to blame for the border crisis and the surge in American deaths from Mexican fentanyl,” she added.
Numbers

Under Biden, illegal immigration has skyrocketed while enforcement, such as deportations, has plummeted.

For instance, in fiscal year 2021, during which Biden took office, just 59,011 deportations were executed. That was down from 185,884 illegal aliens removed in fiscal year 2020—former President Donald Trump’s last full fiscal year in office—and 267,258 in fiscal year 2019, the last full fiscal year that did not include the COVID-19 pandemic.

Arrests were also down, dropping from 143,099 in fiscal year 2019 to just 74,082 in fiscal year 2021, according to end-of-year reports that were previously made public by ICE.

The numbers for fiscal year 2022 are not yet available. There is one month remaining in the fiscal year. ICE typically releases the figures about six months after a fiscal year ends.

ICE is in charge of enforcing immigration law in the U.S. interior, and ERO is an arm of the agency.

Raul Ortiz, the chief of the U.S. Border Patrol, tasked with manning the U.S. borders, said in a deposition obtained as part of the same suit that the spike in illegal immigration was due to a lack of consequences for many illegal aliens.

The case, which argues that the Biden administration is violating federal law by not detaining illegal aliens until a final decision is made regarding their presence in the United States, is set to go on trial in January 2023.
