WASHINGTON, D.C. – According to a report from The New York Post, the United States federal government is using charities to hide exactly how much money from taxpayers is going to illegal immigration.

Taxpayers anywhere in the U.S. are reportedly getting scammed by groups United Way, Catholic Charities and the Central American Refugee Center (CARECEN).

These groups are allegedly hauling in millions in taxpayer dollars under government contracts in an effort to facilitate illegal immigration.

According to The Post, this is flat out money laundering; Democrat politicians wanting to maximize illegal immigration without having their fingerprints on it. The remedy to this is paying so-called charities that will do the work for them.

The Post claims that President Joe Biden along with politicians across the country, including Governor Kathy Hochul, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser, and NYC Mayor Eric Adams are in on the scam.

Before illegally crossing the southern border, while still in Mexico, migrants are being handed debit cards loaded with $800 a month, allowing them to pay for necessities.

The gift cards are allegedly distributed by the non-profit Organization for Migration with money provided by the U.S. State Department.

Many migrants who illegally cross the border surrender to U.S. Border agents and then are directed to Catholic Charities.

That non-profit organization provides them with hotel rooms, meals, and clothing. Sometimes they will even pay for bus or plan tickets to locations chosen by the migrants.

Texas such as Congressman Lance Gooden blame these organizations for “fueling the drastic increases in illegal immigration across our southern border and throughout the country.”

Texas and Arizona are already busing migrants to Washington, D.C. and meeting the buses there are staff from CARECEN, which is almost entirely funded by government contracts, and Catholic Charities.

Both groups hand out gift cards and food packages, direct migrants to shelters or hotel rooms, or help them buy tickets to other U.S. destinations.

The Post stated that the entity responsible for paying for all of this is FEMA – the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

FEMA is a government agency that funnels money through the nonprofits. FEMA’s Emergency Food and Services Program board includes Catholic Charities and United Way, which then pass the money to local nonprofits serving illegal immigrants.

FEMA has allegedly already provided $2.2. million in humanitarian funding for this purpose just in the D.C. area. Catholic Charities and CARECEN are funded largely by government contracts, not private donations.

Their financial statements reportedly reveal that Governor Hochul supports both these organizations through her Office for New Americans.

New York is required to provide shelter to anyone from anywhere who has no other place to sleep thanks to lawsuits brought by nonprofits such as the Coalition for the Homeless. New York City and New York State fund this Coalition and the Coalition is a quasi-government actor posing as a charity.

The Biden administration has been flying illegal immigrants on charter flights in the middle of the night to New York.

After these flights land, usually at Westchester County airport in White Plains, migrants get on chartered buses and head off to destinations across the region, including several Catholic Charities facilities.

Americans already in the city who need a helping hand, such as Jeffrey Harris, a 56-year-old vet living in one of the shelters said, “If we can’t take care of the homeless here, how can we take immigrants.”

Treason? Biden administration set to issue an additional 300K work visas to Mexicans and Central Americans

June 29th, 2022

EL PASO, TX – According to the Border Report, the Biden administration plans to propose issuing 300,000 temporary work visas to Mexicans and Central Americans in an effort to “ease migration challenges” in both countries.

On Wednesday, June 22nd, during a speech to the business community in Tijuana, Mexico, Interior Minister Adan Augusto Lopez, said in a statement:

“It’s a high price, in terms of social costs, for our country to be a crossing point for migrants and every day we’re talking with the American government to try to generate (better) conditions.”

Lopez said that the proposal will be announced when Mexican President Andres Manual Lopez Obrador visits Washington, D.C. in July. While in Tijuana, Lopez said in a statement:

“The American government agreed to issue, initially 300,000 temporary work visas; 150,000 will be for Mexicans or for foreigners who are currently in Mexico waiting for the possibility to migrate north.”

Reportedly, the other 150,000 temporary work visas will be “proportionally distributed” among Central American countries. When referring to the hundreds of thousands of third-country migrants passing through Mexico every year on their way to the United States, Lopez said:

“That, I think will help us reduce the tension.”

When asked for comment, the White House press office emailed Border Report, stating that the United States has issued 350,000 agricultural and non-agricultural work visas to foreign nationals and has been working with the governments of Mexico, Haiti, and Central American nations to expand those programs.

The White House said that at June’s Summit of the Americas in Los Angeles, a commitment was mad to add 11,500 seasonal worker visas for Central Americans and Haitians. The email said:

“For many years, the United States has had a robust seasonal worker program with Mexico, which has allowed an alternative to irregular migration that fills critical labor needs in the U.S. economy.”

In that email, there was allegedly no mention of the 300,000 visas Lopez mentioned. Tony Payan, director of the Baker Institution for Public Policy’s Center for the U.S. and Mexico at Rice University wonders where those visas will come from. He added:

“There is no legal way in which the visa system in the United States can accommodate 300,000 additional visas for workers. That doesn’t mean the U.S. doesn’t need the labor, but the U.S. is about to go into an economic slowdown if not an outright recession. It doesn’t look to me legally or economically feasible at this time.”

According to Payan, thousands of Mexicans come to the U.S. each year on visas for agricultural work and seasonal non-agricultural work, but both of these have a cap. He added that the need for agricultural workers is limited and the current demand for labor is construction, hospitality, food processing, and manufacturing. He said:

“Legally, there is no type of visa that can apply to those kinds of workers. That’s one of the reasons we have 11.5 million undocumented workers in the United States. I don’t see what type of visa they have in mind.”

Regardless, Lopez claims there is a need to ease migration pressures, adding:

“Neither Mexicans nor Central Americans migrate just because they want to. They migrate because of need and the daily contribution of Mexican migrants (in the United States) helps Mexico progress.”

According to the Washington, D.C.-based Wilson Center, in 2021, Mexicans working in the United States sent $51.6 billion home, which was a big increase over the $40.6 billion they mailed, wired or sent through courier to relatives in 2020.

Caravan of illegal immigrants heading through Mexico to US southern border, up to 15,000 expected to arrive and overwhelm CBP

June 9th, 2022

TAPACHULA, MEXICO – Another human caravan of migrants is making its way from the Mexico-Guatemala border. At its starting point of Tapachula, the caravan was already estimated to be 11,000 strong.

Officials believe that by its third day, it had already reached 15,000 and could continue growing before reaching the southern border of the US.

As President Biden and the leaders of 31 nations that make up Central, North, and South America gather in Los Angeles for the Summit of the Americas conference to discuss numerous aspects of multi-national relations, immigration is high on the list of planned topics.

The Daily Mail said it has namely been the issue that has been a drag on Biden’s popularity.

There were 1.7 million illegal crossings in 2021. That was a 379% increase over the last year of Trump’s presidency. In fact, the four months of Trump’s term that fell in Fiscal Year (FY) 2021, the monthly average 74,113. In the time since taking office, Biden’s open border policy has seen 182,276 average monthly encounters.

The Biden administration has four months that saw well over 200,000. The May numbers have yet to be released, but they are estimated to top the 200K mark as well. Assuming that Biden’s average number of monthly encounters is met, that would add an additional 911,380 to the FY2022 books.

With FY2022 nearly 4 months from closing out and May’s numbers unreleased, we have already seen close to 2 million encounters with illegal immigrants. This growing caravan and others like it will likely push the totals for this year well beyond the 2.2 million mark.

Let’s not forget that the White House is appealing a federal court ruling that temporarily halted their efforts to lift the Title 42 protection of quick expulsion under COVID-19 restrictions.

Title 42 has facilitated the expulsion of close to 2 million migrants.

And what needs to be recognized is that these numbers are capturing only the number of crossings in which CBP agents encounter the immigrants. How many people are able to clear the border undetected?

According to CBP estimates, roughly 1,000 people manage to reach the interior of the US with no encounter with law enforcement, every day.

As reported by the Washington Post, CBP recognizes that “got aways” are a growing issue, but they are not equipped to be able to make contact with everyone who enters the US in remote areas.

“There are maybe 20 groups a day that are observed, but there’s nobody to try to go after them,” an agent told the Post on the condition of anonymity. “They just keep walking until they’re out of sight.”

So, what does Biden’s border Czar intend to do? Vice President Harris has committed $3.2B in aid to Honduras, Guatemala, Venezuela and El Salvador to address the “root cause.”

Those are words that she has failed to define or identify, although she has alluded to things like climate change, violence, poverty and economic insecurity.

Ironically, the delegates from those nations are not in attendance at the Summit. Some were not invited, others chose not to attend because the others were not invited.

When caravan members are interviewed, they always point to dictators, oppression, government corruption and abject poverty as the primary reason they are making the trip to the US.

So, if that is the root cause Harris is referring to, does that mean that $3.2B is going to be handed over to corrupt dictators, who force their citizenry into abject poverty, to help battle abject poverty.

“Mostly peaceful” caravan continues to surge towards our southern border, violence included

Note: Some of the video in this piece may be hard to watch for some. 

CHIAPAS, MEXICO – As politicians in Washington, DC continue to play games with our national security, and the the Biden Administration does nothing to secure our southern border, another large caravan makes its way north.

Despite the claims from many on the left that these are just people looking to come to America to seek a better life, people who are escaping poverty, brutal government regimes and the effects of “climate change,” the harsh reality is: there are some really bad people making their way to our country.

And they will get here at all costs, violence included.

And why wouldn’t they? It is being rewarded. More on that below.

As initially reported by Breitbart, here are the tweets showing the violence occurring to our south.

“Some members (stragglers) of the migrant caravan strike with everything in their path They left Pijijiapan, Chiapas Thus, they confronted elements of the National Guard and the National Institute of Migration.”

Armed with only riot shields, the small number of Mexican National Guardsmen are forced to retreat.

“This is how the migrant caravan faced elements of the National Guard in Chiapas.”

Members of this caravan pulled this soldier from the back of the truck, hitting and kicking him. At one point you can see the size of the rocks he is being pelted with.

He was beaten into unconsciousness before stripped and robbed of his gear.

“This is how some of the members of the caravan beat an element of the National Guard who was on the ground, immobile. The brutality.”

If only it stopped there.

“The migrant caravan brings many criminals, since they not only beat the #NationalGuard, they also rob them.”

We should all be disturbed by what we see and what is happening.

Meanwhile, this is what American media coverage looks like. Keep in mind, this is just a sample of mainstream media outlets, this is not exhaustive…but it is representative.

So, as politicians and the media in the US continue to ignore the reality of the existing border crisis and the influx yet to come, the Biden administration wants to hand some illegal immigrants close to $500,000 a piece.

They continue to point to the Trump administration as the reason all of this is happening.

After saying that paying massive amounts of money to illegal border crossers was garbage, Biden reversed and said:

“If, in fact, because of the outrageous behavior of the last administration, you coming across the border, whether it was legal or illegal and you lost your child, you lost your child, he’s gone, you deserve some kind of compensation, no matter what the circumstance.”

But they seem to forget that these separations were happening long before Trump took office. Not only did this practice pre-date Trump’s presidency, they found ways to justify it.

Only Trump was vilified.

And people wonder why migrants will attack police, soldiers and anyone else who stands in their way to get here.

Here is an indication.

Karine Jean-Pierre said, “The President is perfectly comfortable with the Department of Justice settling with individuals and families currently in litigation with the U.S. government.”

“Why would we be giving people who came here the right way money? I don’t understand the question.”

This was the response from the White House Deputy Press Secretary after she was asked by Fox News’ Peter Doocy if people who came here legally would also be receiving any money.

This administration has said that there is no reason to reward people for coming here the right way, but if you come here illegally, you just might get paid.

Report: Biden team considering paying $450,000 to illegal immigrants ‘”separated from families” at border

WASHINGTON, DC – Multiple agencies within the Biden administration are reportedly in talks to hand of large sums of taxpayer money to illegal immigrants for the “psychological trauma” caused by being separated from family members at the border.

According to reporting from the Wall Street Journal, roughly 940 families have filed claims, via the American Civil Liberties Union, against the US government for their “suffering.”

The Departments of Justice, Homeland Security and Health and Human Services are looking into these payments.

Some figures estimate that the average family claim consists of at least one adult and one child, and each individual could receive $450,ooo – meaning that the minimum amount of money that could be doled out would equal $846M.

Let me repeat that. The Biden administration wants to hand out at least $846M to individuals who entered our country illegally.

If even half of those claims include an additional child or adult, that total increases to $1.3B.

Other reports say that they ACLU is seeking roughly $3.4M per family affected. That math adds up to almost $3.2B.

Whether it is $846M or $3.2B, that is a lot of American tax dollars being spent to placate individuals who were breaking the law. And now the president and those who serve at his pleasure want to reward them.

Rest assured, there are plenty of people who believe that this payout will set a revolving door precedent.

Come to America illegally.

Claim to suffer some sort of trauma.

Sue the federal government.

Get paid a fortune.

Welcome to America.

You can stay.

Lather. Rinse. Repeat.

To make matters worse, the lawsuit details that each of these families dealt with the separation that caused their mental health issues starting in April 2018 as part of the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy.

Nevermind the fact that family separations of children and their parents at the border were well-documented as having been an issue going back to the Obama years and beyond.

Lee Gelernt, deputy director of the ACLU’s immigrant rights project, said that not only must the government provide a monetary compensation, but a pathway for remaining in the country.

“President Biden has agreed that the family separation policy is a historic moral stain on our nation that must be fully remedied,” Gelernt said.

It is important to note that while this lawsuit focuses on roughly 45 days in 2018, family separation has been taking place for much longer than just the Trump administration.

“Under all four administrations I have worked under, we have separated families for different reasons,” former CBP Chief Carl Provost said in an interview in August of 2018.

“Obviously, the welfare of the child is of utmost concern for us. And we are still separating if that is of concern. If the parent or the guardian has a serious, criminal history, we will still separate them as well.”

She continued:

“Let me be clear, there was never a family separation initiative, there was a prosecution initiative under zero tolerance.
Under that initiative, when we first kicked that off, the intent was to prosecute all amenable adults, so there was no group that was excluded from that. I can tell you during the 45 days that family groups were included in there, about 85 percent of who we prosecuted were single adults.
We’ve separated families throughout my entire career for various things,” she added. 

Again, we must point out that this is all revolving around people who broke the law to enter our country.

Let’s compare a few things, just to stir the pot a little deeper.

Texas Congressman, Navy SEAL and disabled combat veteran, Dan Crenshaw pointed out:

“Biden wants to pay illegal immigrants $450,000 for their hardship while breaking our laws. For perspective, if a service member is killed in action, their next of kin gets an insurance payment of $400,000. Let that sink in.”

Hey Congressman, that is a valid point, and should cause all of our blood to boil. But, let’s look at this a little deeper.

These payments to illegal immigrants aren’t based on giving their lives for this nation. The lawsuits specifically point out that is is due to psychological ramifications. So, we need to compare apples to apples.

The average rating through the VA for military veterans for PTSD (psychological ramifications) is 70%. That equates to $1,444 per month for a single veteran with PTSD.

It would take 311.64 months, or nearly 26 years for that veteran, who fought to defend this country, to receive the same level of compensation ($450,000) as the illegal immigrant getting paid as part of this settlement.

According to a 2017 study, there are approximately 1.8 million veterans in the US diagnosed with PTSD. Based on the above averages, it would take

But, to be fair, those “separated” at the border were not single.

So, what about a veteran with a spouse and a child? They would receive $1,656.71 per month until the child turned 18. After that, the monthly payment would go down to $1,566.71. Assuming the child was 10 upon award, that would give that family the higher payment for 8 years.

Based on those figures, it would take that veteran’s family 71.3 years to reach the same level of payment ($1.35M) as the family of 3 that broke our laws coming here.

Hopefully, this provides a little perspective on what we are talking about here.

MAKE IT MAKE SENSE!

House minority leader Kevin McCarthy may have summed it up the best, tweeting:

“Pure insanity.”
