House Republicans are expected to move to impeach DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas for failing to faithfully execute the nation’s immigration laws when they take control in January. Good! I’ve been calling for this for some time, along with impeaching Joe Biden for the same reason. Congressman Ronny Jackson from Texas said over the weekend:
“Mayorkas has got to go, so we’re going to start investigating him. We are going investigate every decision he’s made. We’re going to use the power of subpoena. We’re going to use the power of the purse and come after Mayorkas. He needs to go.
“Every decision he’s made” – I’ve documented in previous commentaries dozens of policy changes to open the border that Mayorkas has made during his tenure.
Here’s one more: The Biden administration is taking a tiny provision of immigration law – ‘humanitarian parole’ – and driving a truck through it. The administration is pre-approving parole applications while people are still in Mexico, then they’re driven to border checkpoints and handed off to U.S. authorities who whisk them into the interior sight unseen. Word is getting around about this supposedly legal manner of entry and thousands are stampeding Mexican shelters to apply.
Meanwhile, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments tomorrow in a case brought by Louisiana and Texas challenging the Biden administration’s policy not to deport dangerous criminal aliens, releasing them into the U.S., instead. The challenge is supported by 19 other states that argue the administration is ignoring federal immigration law.
Texas isn’t waiting for the legal landscape to improve. Governor Greg Abbott declared an invasion on the southern border, paving the way for the state to, among other things, build a wall and deploy the National Guard. Armored tank-like vehicles are being sent to the border. Texas has now run 300 busloads of illegal aliens to blue states. The Governor of Massachusetts said Joe Biden’s open borders policies are costing his state an extra $139 million dollars next year.
The ravages of these policies have not gone away.
We have fresh reminders the fentanyl pouring across the border is killing more Americans than guns and cars combined, cartel money is ending up in the hands of corrupt politicians, and dozens of people on the national terrorist watch list are finding their way here. What do you think those terrorists are doing today?
Here are couple of things coming up to watch:
Democrats are looking to pass some kind of immigration legislation during the lame-duck Congress, since Republican control of the House will likely block their chances for the next two years. Full amnesty for all illegal aliens, work permits for DACA Dreamers, and other proposals have all been discussed.
Secondly, COVID restrictions at the border are coming to an end. Those restrictions kept a million illegal aliens out and a new rush at the border is expected once the restrictions are lifted. With open borders crazies like Biden and Mayorkas running the show, it’s a good bet most of them are getting in, immigration law or no immigration law.
