Troops Deployed to U.S-Mexico Border In Preparation for Wave of Illegal Immigration

The wave could follow the end of the Migrant Protection Protocols.

The Pentagon is deploying more than 160 service members to the US-Mexico border in advance of a potential wave crossing of illegal immigrants. The Department of Homeland Security is projecting that large numbers of migrants will attempt to cross into the United States if the Trump administration’s migration-reducing ‘Stay in Mexico’ policy is overturned by the liberal Ninth Circuit Court.

80 troops are deploying to the Border Patrol’s sector in El Paso, Texas, and another 80 to California.

The Trump administration’s Stay in Mexico program, also known as the Migrant Protection Protocols, has proven to be a game changer in reducing flows of illegal immigration. The program requires asylum seekers to remain in Mexico while their legal cases for asylum are processed through the immigration court system. It effectively cuts off funding to the criminal smuggling system, as migrants cannot pay back loans to smugglers without access to the American jobs market.

The Ninth Circuit Court declared the policy to be illegal in February, a decision that was quickly met by a rush of migrants waiting in Mexico to the US border. The program is in place until March 12th, pending a Supreme Court appeal that Justice Department officials are seeking.

Should the program be allowed to lapse without Supreme Court intervention, DHS is expecting a large inflow of people from the roughly 60,000 migrants waiting in Mexico for the adjudication of their cases in the immigration courts.

There is reason to believe the Ninth Circuit Court’s efforts to undermine the policy won’t prove permanently successful, however. The Trump administration has obtained a successful track record in overturning the liberal circuit’s court decisions at the Supreme Court, a development that has incensed some of the left-wing justices on the court.

Coronavirus Stimulus Contains Whopping $350 Million Refugee Resettlement Boondoggle

This has nothing to do with the virus, or the economy.

Published

It appears that a $350 million dollar appropriation for purposes of “Migration and Refugee Assistance” managed to slip inside the coronavirus stimulus package.

Populist commentator Ryan Girdusky first reported on the hidden boondoggle as the legislation was being prepared for a Senate vote Wednesday night. It’s one of several unrelated pork planks in the massive $2 trillion stimulus that was able to slip in without the scrutiny of Republican senators.

The proposal to enrich refugee resettlement contractors appears to have migrated into the legislation originally introduced by Mitch McConnell from Nancy Pelosi’s rivaling proposal. The Speaker of the House had temporarily derailed the stimulus package by introducing a plan of her own, but from the looks of it, she’s getting a crucial element of the left-wing social agenda Democrats have tried to tie to the stimulus with the refugee resettlement package.

Florida’s Matt Gaetz appears to be one of the few members of Congress to question the totally unrelated refugee giveaway in the moment of legislative urgency.

Nominal charitable and non-profit entities have gamed and rigged the American refugee resettlement process for years, enriching themselves to the tunes of tens of millions of dollars if not more on the taxpayer dime. Migration skeptics have long questioned the utility of such an arrangement, pointing out that spending hundreds millions of dollars to resettle people in the United States could be used to far greater effect in providing relief for displaced peoples closer to their homes countries.

Existing refugee resettlement programs have continued in spite of the raging coronavirus pandemic. More than 3,000 people have been resettled in the United States since January, when the disease began surfacing on the radar of the federal government.

The Washington D.C. Swamp appears to have succeeded in utilizing one of its oldest cards in this instance, attaching a totally unrelated refugee proposal to a sorely needed economic relief package. It’s likely the proposal would have shot down on other circumstances, but congressional Democrats ultimately proved tactful enough to advance their preferred and entirely unrelated special interest in a moment of great legislative urgency.
