It’s all very effectively for Kevin McCarthy and different GOP members of Congress to rant on Fox News about how horrible the border disaster is, however what are they doing about it?
Not less than 2 million illegal migrants crossed the border final yr, and all we heard from Congress was scorching air.
Republicans in Washington will let you know they’re powerless to do something about unlawful migration till after they regain management in November, assuming they do.
However one lone New York gubernatorial candidate did extra to tell the general public concerning the Biden administration’s partnership with people-smuggling cartels than did members of Congress with vastly extra assets.
Rob Astorino didn’t relaxation on empty rhetoric. The previous Westchester County government took motion.
Regardless of being slandered by Democrats as a racist, he has uncovered the deliberate subterfuge of the Biden administration because it flies unlawful migrants across the nation and secretes them in unsuspecting communities.
Astorino was the supply of the police bodycam footage we reported on last week, wherein a Westchester County cop went to White Plains airport Aug. 13, 2021, to analyze why migrant passengers had been being unloaded from a constitution jet onto the tarmac hours after the midnight curfew, in contravention of federal regulation.
The 51-minute footage, obtained underneath the Freedom of Data Act, was damning. Federal contractors had been recorded admitting that they had been instructed by the Division of Homeland Safety to maintain the migrant flights “hush hush” and on the “down low” as a result of “if this will get out, the federal government is betraying the American individuals.”
The recording buttressed The Post’s stories last October, wherein we recorded constitution flights arriving at White Plains, disgorging migrants who had been bussed to varied areas within the tri-state space at the hours of darkness.
The flights into White Plains nearly stopped after our story, however the federal authorities continues to ferry unlawful migrants from the southern border to elsewhere within the nation.
“We’ve got a authorities that continues to misinform us,” says Astorino, “that has failed in its most important obligation to safe our nation’s borders and uphold the rule of regulation . . . This can be a matter of public security, public well being and the individuals’s proper to know.”
GOP is all discuss
Regular patriotic Individuals are incandescent with rage about this betrayal by the federal authorities and but their Republican representatives are all discuss, no motion.
Upstate GOP Rep. Claudia Tenney railed in opposition to the flights final week as a “full, aggravated dereliction of obligation, which is why final evening on Twitter, I referred to as for Joe Biden to be impeached and eliminated.”
Known as on twitter? Fats lot of excellent that can do.
Not less than Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene truly has launched impeachment resolutions into the Home, accusing the president of violations of immigration regulation which can be inflicting a national-security disaster.
There’s a motive that unlawful migrants marching towards the US-Mexico border idolize Biden.
He explicitly invited them right here and promised free well being care and different goodies throughout his marketing campaign.
“I might in truth be sure that there’s, that we instantly surge to the border, all these people who find themselves looking for asylum,” he stated throughout a debate in September 2019. “That’s who we’re.”
The world heard him loud and clear and that’s why thousands and thousands of aspiring financial refugees from Central America and locations as far afield as Bangladesh, Somalia, Yemen, Lebanon, Uzbekistan and Eritrea, have paid individuals smugglers as a lot as $9000 every to make the trek to the southern border.
Border patrol brokers are livid about being pressured to facilitate this invasion. When Mayorkas confirmed up final week to a gathering in Yuma, Ariz., his reception was overtly hostile, and one agent turned his again. Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz confronted the identical anger from his troops in Laredo, Texas.
Leaked footage confirmed Ortiz repeatedly being challenged. “For evil to triumph, is for good males to do nothing,” one agent instructed him. “Good males are doing nothing. You’re permitting unlawful aliens to be dropped off in communities.”
Risking their jobs
Bravo to those courageous brokers, who danger their jobs by talking fact to energy.
Republicans in Congress may study from them. How about refusing to work with the Democrats till Mayorkas is fired?
He deserves to be dropped at account for dozens of causes, not least for permitting his horse-mounted Border Patrol brokers to be defamed with the false accusation that they “whipped” Haitian migrants.
Now the DHS report into that bogus incident reportedly has been buried as a result of it exhibits the administration in an appalling gentle.
To his credit score, Texas Republican Attorney General Ken Paxton has aligned with different red-state counterparts to sue the Biden administration in an effort to stem the torrent of unlawful migration.
On Friday they lodged a swimsuit in opposition to Mayorkas over Biden’s “Central American Minors Program.”
This system, by no means licensed by Congress, permits unlawful migrants to have their youngsters flown right here to hitch them at taxpayer expense.
That is unlawful, the lawsuit says, as a result of underneath the Stay in Mexico program, which Paxton and his group of AGs had reinstated by the Supreme Court docket, any asylum seeker crossing the border should be deported instantly to Mexico. As a substitute, most are being flown into the inside after which we pay to fetch their youngsters.
“No sovereign nation would reward those that break the regulation by allowing relations overseas to hitch them in dwelling within the sovereign territory unlawfully, significantly with the help of the federal government itself,” reads Paxton’s lawsuit.
It’s a bleak irony that President Biden is arriving in New York this week to debate regulation and order. He ought to get his personal home so as first.
