Exclusive: House conservatives led by Rep. Babin ask Trump to force immigrants to post ‘charge bonds’

Published

on

Big League Politics obtained a letter from 17 House conservatives sent a letter to President Donald J. Trump asking the president to enforce the federal law that requires immigrants to post “Public Charge Bond,” so they are not a public burden.

“Unfortunately, DHS and the State Department no longer require applicants to post a public charge bond, not does any other federal agency,” the letter said.

“As the result, an exorbitant amount of public assistance is being accessed by immigrants, who promised not to become a burden on the taxpayers,” the letter said.

The congressmen said the bond is an easily enforceable method of good public policy.

It is a very simple process, they said. “If the immigrant does not become a public charge, the bond is canceled. If the immigrant becomes a public charge, costs for public assistance benefits are deducted from the public charge bond.

Rep. Brian Babin (R.-Texas) wrote the letter and circulated it to his colleagues. The letter was sent to the president, his senior advisor Stephen Miller and Kathy Nuebel Kovarik, at the federal office of Policy and Strategy of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

The requirement for the bond in Section 213 of part of the 1952 Immigration and Nationality Act or the McCarren-Walker Act, the letter said, but it was also part of federal immigration law 1882. President Harry S. Truman vetoed the bill, but the Democratic-controlled Congress overrode the veto.

Speaking on the Senate floor, Sen. Patrick A. McCarran (D.-Nev.) said: “Today, as never before, untold millions are storming our gates for admission and those gates are cracking under the strain. The solution of the problems of Europe and Asia will not come through a transplanting of those problems en masse to the United States”

The bonds have been part of immigration legislation passed in 1891, 1917, 1952, 1965 and in 1996.

Because federal agencies ignore the federal law that requires a public charge bond, there have been two results, the letter said.

“Immigrants do indeed receive public assistance and at much higher rates than U.S. citizens”. Many are becoming dependent upon public assistance, the congressmen said. “Neither the immigrant nor their sponsor is held responsible for the costs associated with these benefits.”

Because the requirement for the bond is already federal law, no legislation is necessary, all that is needed is for the president to direct federal agencies to enforce it, the letter said.

SUV Carrying 27 People Crashes with Semi Truck Near Mexican Border, At Least 15 Killed

A tragedy that could’ve been avoided.

Published

on

A Tuesday morning crash involving an SUV and a semi truck has killed at least 15 people.

The crash occurred near Holtville, California, a town close to both the Arizona border and the US-Mexico border. The SUV, according to the New York Times, pulled into the path of the semi at an intersection.

14 of the victims were pronounced dead at the scene, while another died at the hospital. At least six other victims are currently receiving treatment at the hospital as well.

It is believed that 27 passengers were packed inside the SUV, which had a maximum legal capacity of seven to eight people. Because of this and the crash’s proximity to the US-Mexico border, it is probable that the passengers were illegal immigrants being smuggled into the United States.

The California Highway Patrol has not officially confirmed their immigration status because it is still under investigation, but Dr. Adolphe Edward of the El Centro Regional Medical Center said he believes the victims to be illegal aliens.

Big League Politics is closely following the illegal immigration crisis that’s been brewing since Joe Biden’s assumption of the White House. We recently reported on how the Border Patrol expects 13,000 illegal alien minors to arrive at the US-Mexico border in just the month of May. We also reported on Biden’s DHS secretary Alejandro Mayorkas claiming that he didn’t think the situation at the border constitutes a crisis:

Another reporter asked Mayorkas if he thought there was a crisis at the border, to which he replied: “I think that the answer is no. I think there is a challenge at the border that we are managing, and we have our resources dedicated to managing it.” Despite the reporter’s pushback on his claim, Mayorkas reiterated that his team was working “around the clock” to address the issues confronting the DHS and that the level of illegal immigrants coming across the border constitutes a challenge, not a crisis.

Illegal immigration is harmful to both the nation and the migrants. Tuesday’s accident near the border was a tragedy that could’ve been avoided.
