Even as Republican Party governors throughout the country accept third-world refugees, Texas Governor Greg Abbott has refused to accept the admittance of these potentially dangerous foreigners into his state.
Abbott made it official by sending a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, citing border security concerns as his reasoning for rejecting the refugee resettlement program in his state.
“Since FY2010, more refugees have been received in Texas than in any other state. In fact, over that decade, roughly 10% of all refugees resettled in the United States have been placed in Texas,” Abbott’s letter to Pompeo reads.
Despite Texas’ acceptance of refugees in the past, Abbott believes that enough is enough considering Texas has had to shoulder the burden for failed immigration policies for so long.
His letter states that Texas has been “left by Congress to deal with disproportionate migration issues resulting from a broken federal immigration system.”
“At this time, the state and non-profit organizations have a responsibility to dedicate available resources to those who are already here, including refugees, migrants, and the homeless — indeed, all Texans,” Abbott wrote. “As a result, Texas cannot consent to initial refugee resettlement for FY2020.”
The refugee industry is not happy about Abbott making his decision because they lose their federal gravy train if enough states reject the program.
“We are incredibly disappointed but not altogether shocked,” said Krish O’Mara Vignarajah, the president and CEO of Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS) in response to Abbott’s decision.
LIRS and two other organizations that receive taxpayer money to resettle refugees are suing to overturn Executive Order 13888, which was issued by President Trump in November of last year to make participation in the refugee resettlement program voluntary. They hope to overturn this measure to re-open the flood gates for migrants to be trafficked throughout the United States.
“Our hope is that the executive order will be deemed illegal and unconstitutional so it won’t allow for this type of veto process to have any effect,” Vignarajah said.
The refugee trafficking industry is emboldened by cowardly Republican governors who have decided to participate in the program despite its voluntary nature.
Solidly red South Dakota announced two weeks ago that they would take these potentially dangerous refugees from the third-world:
The Argus Leader reported that South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem informed the Trump administration last Thursday that South Dakota will continue taking in refugees who will be resettled in the United States in 2020.
Back in September, Trump signed an executive order letting states and local governments opt out of the U.S. Refugee Resettlement Program. Before this executive order was issued, the federal government only had to consult with states.
Noem commended the Trump administration for increasing background checks for applicants trying to seek refugee status.
“Thanks to the leadership of President Trump, the strengthened screening process for refugees entering the United States can give South Dakotans increased confidence that those entering are coming for the right reasons,” Noem said in a statement. “For the communities that want to welcome these refugees, I support giving them that opportunity.”
Abbott has set the gold standard for states around the country to reject the refugee resettlement program, and help preserve the demographic integrity of the U.S.
Former Mexican Defense Minister is Arrested in Los Angeles for Allegedly Protecting a Drug Cartel
More Proof that Mexico is An Institutional Dumpster Fire
Retired Mexican General Salvador Cienfuegos was arrested on October 15, 2020.
According to allegations from U.S. prosecutors, General Cienfuegos received bribes from a powerful Mexican cartel and allowed to smuggle drugs into the United States.
An indictment that was unsealed on October 17, revealed that from December 2015 to February 2017, while he served as Mexico’s Secretary of National Defense, Cienfuegos allegedly worked on behalf of a drug cartel. In working with this drug cartel, Cienfuegos earned the nickname of “El Padrino” (The Godfather) by helping the H-2 Cartel move drugs from Mexico to the U.S.
“The defendant [Cienfuegos] abused that public position to help the H-2 Cartel, an extremely violent Mexican drug trafficking organization, traffic thousands of kilograms of cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine and marijuana into the United States,” prosecutors contended in a letter sent to a U.S. District Court judge in New York.
“In exchange for bribe payments,” the letter argued, he allowed the cartel “to operate with impunity in Mexico” while it operated distribution networks in cities such as Los Angeles and Las Vegas and in other states such as Ohio, Minnesota, North Carolina and New York.
U.S. agents took the retired general into custody on October 15 at Los Angeles International Airport. Cienfuegos is expected to be transferred to New York.
Cienfuegos served as defense secretary from 2012 to 2018 under the administration of then-President Enrique Peña Nieto.
“The main problem in Mexico is corruption,” López Obrador declared during a news briefing on October 16 regarding the incident.
In López Obrador’s view, it is “regrettable” that someone in such a high position of government has deep connections to drug cartels.
“This is a process of progressive degradation,” López Obrador continued, “and we are trying now to figure out how deep the corruption goes.”
As of now, Cienfuegos is the most prominent Mexican official to have been arrested on drug trafficking charges. In 2019, U.S. authorities arrested Genaro García Luna, the Secretary of Public Security under the administration of former President Felipe Calderón, for allegedly being involved in drug trafficking.
According to the U.S. indictment, Cienfuegos was working with H-2, an alleged branch of the Beltrán-Leyva criminal cartel. On top of that, prosecutors claims that the retired general received bribes to shield the cartel and its leaders. He then proceeded to inform them beforehand of military actions planned against them and even used troops to attack a rival cartel.
Mexico is clearly on the ropes institutionally. With a current president (AMLO) who wants to take a “hugs not bullets” approach to crime, the country will continue to spiral into chaos as drug cartels become even more powerful. President Trump has been right all along in building a wall to protect America from the potential spillover effects of Mexico’s drug war.
