U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement are warning Americans of an uptick in “fake families” showing up at the border.
In other words, illegal aliens are entering America by using children posing as family members to take advantage of U.S. migration laws.
In April, ICE has conducted about 100 investigations and uncovered more than 25 cases of suspected family fraud. In the past two weeks, immigration officials have sent out six new teams of law enforcement at the U.S. Southern Border.
The acting ICE Director Matthew Albence announced that he deployed teams at the border to catch “fake families using forged documents” as a means of gaming the U.S. immigration system. The acting ICE Director contends that this number of investigations being launched by ICE is proof that this move is paying off.
According to the Washington Times, Albence said “ICE, along with our partners at CBP, remain committed to protecting children by ensuring they are not used as pawns by individuals attempting to gain entry to the U.S. through fraud.”
The Washington Times also reported that adults who arrive at the border accompanied with children are expected to be detained for 20 days or less according to a policy imposed by a federal judge in 2015.
This timeframe is not enough for immigration officials to hear their immigration cases, so the families are released. This often results in them not showing up for their deportation cases, and as a result, many go off into the interior.
Immigration is the number #1 issue for GOP voters according to BLP reports, especially when considering the record number of illegal migrants crossing the border.
The overwhelming number of migrants crossing in undetected is putting the country’s social cohesiveness on the line. One needn’t look further at Europe, to see what can happen to a country’s social fabric when mass migration takes hold.
The topic of immigration will simply not go away by 2020 as the border crossings are expected to grow throughout the rest of the year.
Airbnb CEO Says Wuhan Virus Will Fundamentally Transform Domestic Travel
Post-pandemic America will not look the same.
Brian Chesky, the CEO of Airbnb, said to Reuters on January 14, 2021 that domestic travel patterns will not revert to pre-Wuhan virus pandemic standards.
In a Zoom call with Jonathan Weber, the global technology editor for Reuters, Chesky said that business travel will move towards leisure travel due to the fact that software like Zoom facilitates teleconferencing at unprecedented rates.
Furthermore, Chesky speculates that people won’t be visiting America’s largest cities as much as before, nor will they stay at crowded hotels. Instead, he believes that “many people will travel by car – some will travel by plane – and they’re going to travel to thousands of smaller communities. And many of these communities are going to be smaller cities and or even rural areas.”
Additionally, the Airbnb CEO notes that “farm stays are huge right now” and that national parks travel will become a major trend among travelers in the upcoming months. The latter will grow, in Chesky’s view, because most Americans have not visited such parks.
According to an Airbnb survey, 54% of Americans have plans of traveling in 2021 or they’re in the process of planning out their trips for the summer. Chesky asserted that travelers are “yearning for what was taken away from them.” He added, “they’re not yearning to see Times Square. What they are yearning to do is to see their friends and their families they have not seen in a long time.”
Tyler Durden of ZeroHedge raised an interesting point about this change in Americans’ travel patterns:
If Chesky is right about the significant travel shift, the hotel industry could be slated for a massive wave of bankruptcies and or consolidation to a degree never before seen.
Regardless, Americans are getting tired of the Wuhan virus lockdowns. Millions of Americans have had their freedoms infringed upon thanks to politicians who want to exploit a generalized crisis for their own gain.
If Republicans were smart, they would be unapologetically campaigning for their states to be reopened. Americans want to go back to their normal lives and engage in activities such as travel, which the political class has deprived them of.
