"And the bewildered herd is still believing

Everything we've been told from our birth

Hell they won't lie to me

Not on my own damn TV

But how much is a liar's word worth

And what happened to peace on earth" -- Willie Nelson

Venezuela Blocks Flights Carrying Deported Migrants From US, Mexico MikeRivero

Venezuela has blocked flights of migrants deported from the United States and Mexico, undermining one of the few policies the Biden administration had recently embraced to deal with record levels of illegal immigration, according to the Wall Street Journal, citing people familiar with the measures.

A New York appeals court upheld a prior ruling that struck down a New York City law giving local voting rights to nearly a million foreign nationals.

On February 13, the U.S. House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed the Frederick Douglass Trafficking Victims Prevention and Protection Reauthorization Act with a vote of 414-11. The bipartisan legislation, authored by Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ), will reauthorize the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 – which expired in 2021 – and provide approximately $1 billion in funding over five years for programs that combat the scourge of human trafficking.

A state appeals court ruled that a New York City law that would allow non-citizens to vote in local elections is unconstitutional — marking a win for the Republican elected officials who sued to block it.

South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem has ordered the state’s National Guard troops to be deployed to the southern border, aiding Texas in managing unprecedented levels of illegal immigration.

Ms. Noem, a Republican, announced that 60 South Dakota National Guard soldiers will be sent to the U.S.-Mexico border later this spring. The deployment will occur gradually over a span of three months.

“The border in a warzone, so we’re sending soldiers,” Ms. Noem said in a statement.

Conservatives in the Senate are urging Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell to oppose Democrats’ plans to ignore the upper chamber’s constitutional duty to host an impeachment trial for Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

More than a dozen conservative senators penned a letter to McConnell on Tuesday telling him to take up the House’s mantle of impeaching Mayorkas for his aiding and abetting the invasion at the U.S. southern border.

New analysis finds that the number of illegal immigrants who have entered the U.S. on Biden’s watch is greater than the population of 36 states.

The numbers are absolutely staggering and there are still months left before Joe Biden will potentially leave office. If he doesn’t, and this madness continues, it’s nearly impossible to imagine what the country would look like in four more years.

Illegal immigration has now eclipsed the economy as the top issue for the 2024 election and this is why. Everyone knows this is not a sustainable situation.

The city of Chicago is now suing oil companies over climate change.

A cynical person might see this as nothing more than a cash-strapped city going after what it sees as a deep pocketed target in order to get large sums of money it needs in order to keep the city afloat.

Chicago’s financial problems were well known long before the city became a destination for illegal border crossers.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) has subpoenaed Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Xavier Becerra for records on Unaccompanied Alien Children (UACs), released into the United States, who are behind some of the most “heinous criminal acts against Americans.”
