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.
Biden’s Open Border Policies are a Magnet for Incoming Central American Caravans
The mother of all caravans is coming
Some things are simply too predictable. According to Ben Wildon of SaraCarter.com, a new migrant caravan from Central America is quickly forming, and it’s heading northward to the U.S.
Incoming President Joe Biden’s lax immigration policies have become a magnet for migrants who desire entering the U.S. illegally. They know very well that Biden will not drop the hammer when they illegally enter the country. Up to 9,000 migrants have apparently been making their way to the U.S. At least 1,000 of those migrants illegally entered Guatemala on January 15, 2021, according to a report by the Associated Press.
The pro-mass migration group Pueblo Sin Fronteras was ecstatic about the new caravan and urged the incoming Biden administration to welcome them with open arms in a statement that it released recently.
“We recognize the importance of the incoming Government of the United States having shown a strong commitment to migrants and asylum seekers, which presents an opportunity for the governments of Mexico and Central America to develop policies and a migration management that respect and promote the human rights of the population in mobility,” the statement said.
In addition, the group stated, ”We will advocate that the Biden government honors its commitments.”
Additionally, the group called for immigration reform (amnesty) by scrapping laws that make migrants stay in Mexico as their asylum requests are processed.
“A new United States Government is an opportunity to work with the Mexican Government to develop a cooperation plan with Central America to address the causes of migration, together with civil society organizations, as well as an opportunity to increase regional cooperation regarding the persons in need of protection, and to dismantle illegal and inhuman programs such as Remain in Mexico, the United States’ Asylum Cooperation Agreements with El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, as well as the Title 42 expulsions by the United States authorities,” Pueblo Sin Fronteras stated.
According to a Fox News report, Biden has vowed to provide citizenship to illegal aliens and do away with a number of Trump era policies such as the enforcement of the public charge rule, the temporary immigration moratorium during the Wuhan virus pandemic, and several restrictions to the H1-B visa system that kept legal immigration in check. Additionally, Bden wants to implement a moratorium on ICE deportations.
Curiously, Susan Rice, a Biden administration policy advisor revealed that the U.S. would not be fully opening the borders to migrants right off the bat.
“Processing capacity at the border is not like a light that you can just switch on and off,” Rice told the Spanish news site EFE. “Migrants and asylum seekers absolutely should not believe those in the region peddling the idea that the border will suddenly be fully open to process everyone on Day 1. It will not.”
These caravans will only grow larger as time goes by. The Biden administration’s weak border policies serve as a magnet for migrants. Border security is a pillar of any coherent political jurisdiction. Failure to secure a border, will inevitably lead to political chaos.
If Republicans are serious about getting back into power, they should unapologetically push for strong border policies, zero tolerance on illegal immigration, and a legal immigration moratorium.
