The Trump administration is weighing a policy proposal that would protect state and local jurisdictions from being forced to accept potentially dangerous third-world refugees.
The administration is considering whether or not to allow state and local jurisdictions to deny refugees that have been approved for resettlement into the United States through the scandal-ridden globalist program.
A draft for the initial program states that “the federal government will resettle refugees only where both the relevant state and local governments have consented to participate.” Trump is expected to announce these changes via executive order in the upcoming days.
If a state or local government denies refugees under Trump’s plan, they would be resettled to a place with a government that supports refugee resettlement. The only exception would be spouses or kids of refugees who have already been resettled in a particular area.
Peter Boogaard, a federal immigration bureaucrat who worked under former President Barack Obama, believes the proposed policy would “have a dramatic impact on the ability of future administrations to return refugee admissions to the normal historic levels.”
Trump has already drastically decreased the amount of refugees who are being let into the country. The number is capped at 30,000 for fiscal year 2019, down from 85,000 in fiscal year 2016. The administration wants to drive that number down further, and groups that are on the federal dole to resettle refugees are crying foul that their gravy train is drying up.
“Governors could elect not to take part in the refugee resettlement program. That would have a horrible impact on the program. That would literally be an abdication of federal authority,” said Mark Hetfield, president of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS), who also said Trump is pushing a “malevolent and wasteful plan to concentrate refugees in blue states.”
“The world is in the midst of the greatest humanitarian displacement crisis in almost a century. I strongly oppose any further reductions of the refugee resettlement program,” said Bishop Joe Vásquez, who serves as chair of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Migration.
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, and other religious and secular organizations have received millions in federal funds annually to traffic refugees into the U.S., which has given radicals like Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) a nascent constituency in migrant enclaves like Minneapolis and Detroit. A recent investigation has shown that the international refugee resettlement industry is fueled by bribes rather than legitimate humanitarian concerns.
SUV Carrying 27 People Crashes with Semi Truck Near Mexican Border, At Least 15 Killed
A tragedy that could’ve been avoided.
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.
