Biden’s Pentagon Refuses D.C. Mayor Bowser’s Request for National Guard to Deal with Illegal Immigration

President Joe Biden’s Pentagon has refused a request from Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser (D) to activate the National Guard to help the city deal with illegal immigration.

Last week, Bowser requested the Biden administration activate the D.C. National Guard as she said the city is at a “tipping point” with a surge of illegal immigration triggered by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s busing border crossers and illegal aliens to Democrat-run sanctuary cities.

HAPPENING NOW: Third Bus of Migrants Arriving in DC from Texas…

Posted by Breitbart on Friday, April 15, 2022

According to Bowser, Abbott has sent more than 4,000 border crossers and illegal aliens to D.C. since April. On Friday, a Defense Department official confirmed to CNN that the federal agency had denied Bowser’s request to activate the D.C. National Guard.

CNN reports:

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin rejected the request because the Department of Defense has “determined providing this support would negatively impact the readiness of the DCNG and have negative effects on the organization and members,” the official said. [Emphasis added]

Abbott has invited Bowser, along with New York City Mayor Eric Adams, to visit the U.S.-Mexico border to witness firsthand the record level of illegal immigration that Texas must deal with as a result of Biden’s expansive Catch and Release operation that continues enticing thousands of border crossers and illegal aliens every day to the United States.

Most recently, Abbott said he was looking at expanding on the Democrat-run sanctuary cities that Texas will send border crossers and illegal aliens to not only include Washington, D.C. and New York City.

“We are helping out these small local communities by sending even more buses to these communities and putting these new migrants on the buses and sending them to Washington, D.C.,” Abbott said. “And we’re looking at other cities to send them to.”

Exclusive Footage: Migrant Bus of Mostly Single Adult Men, Sent by Texas Gov. Abbott, Arrives in New York City

NEW YORK CITY — A bus filled with mostly single adult male migrants arrived at Port Authority in New York City from Texas Friday morning — where they were greeted by volunteers handing out burritos — as Gov. Greg Abbott (R) continues dispersing record-breaking numbers of border crossers and illegal aliens arriving in his state to Democrat-run “sanctuary cities.”

New York City officials appeared to be unprepared for the migrants’ arrival, or at least lacked communication and coordination to receive them, as Port Authority did not initially have a gate for the bus to park, and Port Authority employees were not aware of the plan for arrival. The bus circled between 8th and 9th avenues Friday morning until it was finally able to park at Gate 14 at approximately 7:30 a.m.

“Because of President Biden’s continued refusal to acknowledge the crisis caused by his open border policies, the State of Texas has had to take unprecedented action to keep our communities safe,” Gov. Abbott said in a statement.

“In addition to Washington, D.C., New York City is the ideal destination for these migrants, who can receive the abundance of city services and housing that Mayor Eric Adams has boasted about within the sanctuary city,” Abbott said. “I hope he follows through on his promise of welcoming all migrants with open arms so that our overrun and overwhelmed border towns can find relief.”

When the bus arrived, Breitbart News witnessed passengers disembarking after a 3-day journey from Texas, greeted by a handful of volunteers. One volunteer was wearing a “NYC immigration services” t-shirt, but there did not appear to be any city employees present.

The greeters handed migrants a bag bearing the logo of the humanitarian aid organization “Save the Children”; however, there appeared to be fewer than 10 children among the group, and no more than 5 women. The rest of the 60-some passengers on the bus were single males between the ages of 20 to 40 years old.

The volunteers led the group through Port Authority, corralled them into the entrance of the bus station and handed out burritos. Some migrants were provided rides to other locations, but it was unclear where.

One migrant, a man who said his name is Alfonzo and who arrived alone, told Breitbart News he traveled from Venezuela through Mexico into Texas, where he was put directly on the bus to New York City.

He left his wife and children in Chile and explained that he came alone to America first and planned to bring them later. He does not have any family or connections in the United States and does not speak English. He came with one bag containing some toiletries and a pillow, and had 130 U.S. dollars.

Alfonzo told Breitbart News that now was a good “opportunity” to come to the United States, explaining that he did not believe he would be admitted under former President Trump’s administration, specifically mentioning that the wall along the southern border was an obstacle to entry. He said locals in Mexico accepted money to direct him toward the border.

Alfonzo said he was looking for work, but had never been to New York City or the United States. He did not have a place to stay and was not informed of any lodging services or resources.

Despite Democrat officials’ support for illegal immigration through their expansive sanctuary city policies, which shield illegal aliens from arrest and deportation from the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), a handful have warned that the migrant buses from Texas will overwhelm their city’s public resources.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D), for instance, has pleaded with Biden for “additional federal resources immediately” to deal with the illegal immigration surge. In another statement, Adams told New Yorkers to get “on board” with having their city overrun with border crossers and illegal aliens arriving and straining infrastructure, hospitals, schools, and neighborhoods.

“Everyone’s block is going to be impacted by this,” Adams said. “And so we have to add our advocacy with our ability to help our neighbors. We need everyone on board with this.”

“… our schools are going to be impacted, our healthcare system is going to be impacted, our infrastructure is going to be impacted,” he continued.

Adams’ office claims the migrant buses’ being sent to New York City is akin to using border crossers and illegal aliens “as political pawns,” calling the policy “disgusting.”

Gov. Abbott has issued a public invitation to Mayor Adams to visit the southern border, insisting the “sanctuary city” mayor witness “the magnitude of chaos created by Biden’s open-border policies.”

“I really wish they would [visit] because public officials across the country, they do need to realize the magnitude of the chaos created by Biden’s open-border policies,” Abbott said on Fox News Thursday.

“They’re up in arms about a few thousand people coming into their communities over the past few months? Listen, in any one sector in the state of Texas, we have more than 5,000 people coming across in that sector every single day,” Abbott continued.

Similarly, Washington, DC, Mayor Muriel Bowser requested National Guard troops last month to deal with what she called a “humanitarian crisis” of just over 6,000 migrants being bused to the capital from Texas since April.

Bowser, a staunch supporter of the region’s sanctuary city policy, claimed the migrant buses were a “tipping point” for Washington, DC, even as they pale in comparison to the level of illegal immigration that American border towns are forced to deal with under the Biden administration.

In Texas border towns alone, nearly 130,000 border crossers and illegal aliens were caught crossing the border in June. Most recently, in the small town of Normandy, Texas — with a population of just 29 residents — about 400 border crossers and illegal aliens crossed into the area this month.

Open Borders Activists Balk at Red States Busing Illegal Aliens to Blue States

Open borders activists are balking at red states taking immigration enforcement into their own hands by busing border crossers and illegal aliens to blue states and cities like New York and Washington, DC.

In April, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) announced that state officials would begin chartering buses to transport border crossers and illegal aliens to Washington, DC, and other cities.

As a result, Washington, DC, Mayor Muriel Bowser is asking President Joe Biden to deploy the National Guard after she said about 4,000 border crossers and illegal aliens have arrived in the region over the last few weeks.

Illegal immigration to D.C., Bowser said, is at a “tipping point.” Similarly, New York City Mayor Eric Adams has warned New Yorkers that illegal immigration to the city is likely to cripple the healthcare system and infrastructure as well as overwhelm schools and neighborhoods.

Now, mass migration activists argue that Abbott’s order may not be legal.

“There are ongoing questions about what authority they have to bus people from one location to another,” Aaron Reichlin-Melnick with the American Immigration Council told the Texas Tribune. “Legally speaking, is that immigration enforcement? I still don’t know.”

The number of border crossers and illegal aliens arriving in D.C. and New York City pales in comparison to those arriving in America’s small border communities.

In Texas border towns, alone, nearly 130,000 border crossers and illegal aliens were caught crossing the border in June. Most recently, in the small town of Normandy, Texas — with a population of just 29 residents — about 400 border crossers and illegal aliens crossed into the area this month.

Colorado Democrats Open Public Benefits to Illegal Aliens; Taxpayers Billed Millions

Colorado Democrats, with Gov. Jared Polis (D) at the helm, are opening an array of public benefits to illegal aliens that are expected to cost millions for the state’s taxpayers.

As part of a legislative package signed last year, Polis and Democrats have opened more public benefits like dental insurance, family services, business permits, and professional licenses to the state’s nearly 300,000 illegal aliens.

Likewise, Polis and Democrats are ensuring that illegal aliens will now be eligible for taxpayer-funded subsidies for property taxes, rental costs, and utility bills. That expansion, alone, will cost taxpayers about $12 million annually.

The effort comes as President Joe Biden’s administration has greenlit a plan by Colorado Democrats to give subsidized health insurance to illegal aliens. Colorado officials are hoping to enroll about 10,000 illegal aliens under the subsidized health insurance program in the first year, with more enrollees every year thereafter.

Similarly, Polis has signed legislation into law that will make pregnant illegal aliens and their children eligible for Medicaid beginning in 2025. That plan will cost taxpayers nearly $30 million a year, with the federal government paying most of the costs.

Colorado’s rapid expansion to entice illegal aliens to the state serves as a blueprint on par with states like California, Illinois, and New York, where illegal aliens are awarded driver’s licenses, health insurance, protection from deportation, as well as other benefits.

Republicans Must Listen to the Voters … Not the Media!


Republicans Must Listen to Voters, Not the Media

By: Jeff Crouere

As our nation descends into a recession and Americans worry about how to pay their bills and feed their families, leaders in the Republican Party have decided to keep quiet. Their strategy is to let the political party in power, the Democrats, self-destruct.

Without question, Democrats have done a horrible job leading the nation. As the party in control of Congress and the White House, Democrats are responsible for the high inflation and gas prices that are wrecking the nation’s economy.

President Joe Biden has been an unmitigated disaster. Arguably, he has also committed a variety of impeachable offenses. The list includes selling crude oil from our Strategic Petroleum Reserve to foreign nations, including our enemy, communist China. He also opened the southern border and allowed an invasion of millions of illegal aliens.

In withdrawing our military from Afghanistan, Biden not only left behind $85 billion in military equipment for the Taliban, a terrorist group, to use, but also abandoned innocent Americans behind enemy lines.

It is becoming evident that the president lied about his financial dealings with his corrupt son, Hunter. As vice president, he placed inappropriate pressure on the Ukrainian government to remove a prosecutor who was investigating the involvement of Hunter with the notorious oil and gas company Burisma.

His actions are undoubtedly much worse than anything President Donald Trump did in office. Trump was impeached twice and is undergoing another Democrat party effort to destroy him: the bogus “kangaroo court” show trial known as the January 6 commission.

Democrats showed no qualms about trying to annihilate President Trump using phony charges. In contrast, Republicans have tangible evidence to present regarding Biden, and, largely, there is silence from GOP officials. Each day, Republicans should be calling for the impeachment of Joe Biden.

It will not hurt them at the polls, for there is no affection for Biden among the American people. A new poll shows that his approval rating is only 30%, while an astounding 88% of Americans say the country is on the wrong track.

Republicans should also be demanding that the 79-year-old president submit to a mental competency test. Every day, Biden displays embarrassing gaffes, makes humiliating misstatements, and demonstrates his forgetfulness. It is a national security threat for our country to be led by a president who is mentally incompetent. Unfortunately, other than a handful of congressmen, most GOP leaders are silent on this critical issue.

Instead, many establishment Republicans were quite vocal about their support for the nation’s first significant gun control legislation in decades. The bill passed with the support of 29 Republicans in Congress. It was accomplished because too many Republicans believed that the nation “had to do something” after the horrific school massacre in Uvalde, Texas. Yet it is never a smart idea to limit our Second Amendment rights in pursuit of nebulous gun control objectives that will never be achieved.

Many of these same establishment Republicans collaborated with President Biden to pass his pork-laden $1.2-trillion infrastructure bill, which will balloon the deficit while doing little to improve the poor road conditions throughout our nation.

The moderate wing of the GOP is very influential in Congress. In fact, if Republicans win control of Congress in the midterm elections this fall, two establishment Republicans will surely fill the leadership positions. In the U.S. Senate, Mitch McConnell is the clear favorite to be elected majority leader. In the House, Kevin McCarthy has the inside track to be elected speaker.

Both GOP leaders are cautious moderates who inspire no confidence from the Make America Great Again (MAGA) base of the party. Both expressed their anger with President Trump after the January 6 protests and wanted him removed from office.

On principal issues, there is a clear disconnect between the grassroots base of the Republican Party and the GOP leadership in Congress. These party leaders want members to be timid and not attract attention with bold positions on controversial topics.

At this point, the stakes are too high for reticence. As the nation’s economy is collapsing, congressional Republicans should be opposing Biden and the Democrats at every opportunity and promoting an updated “Contract with America.” Congrats to Florida’s GOP senator Rick Scott for creating an 11-point plan of action, but all Republican Party candidates need to rally behind a set of conservative principles that will be a blueprint to rescue the county next year.

It is not enough just to criticize Biden and the Democrats for their horrific policies. Republicans must be initiative-taking and show voters they have policies to address the major problems facing the nation: the economy, inflation, food shortages, gasoline prices, and crime.

Republicans must take advantage of the Democrats’ refusal to tackle the major concerns of the American people. While the American people are clearly worried about their finances and personal safety, Democrats are obsessed with climate change, the war in Ukraine, gun control, abortion, and the January 6 “insurrection.”

The liberal media share the enthusiasm of the Democrats for their signature issues, but it is not registering with Americans who want action on their basic concerns. This neglect has created a massive opportunity for the Republican Party. Republicans must exploit this political divide this election.

Republicans must stop falling for the media trap to “work with” Democrats. They must show support for the “MAGA” principles that are resonating with the American people and have been articulated by President Trump throughout his political career.

Americans are tired of politicians who want to restrict their rights, grow the government, and send our tax dollars overseas while failing to address basic economic and security issues. While Biden and congressional leaders worry about the Ukrainian border, Americans are focused on our southern border.

Whether the issue is impeachment, Biden’s mental incompetency, or the “MAGA” agenda, Republicans must be bold and convince Americans that, if entrusted with power, they will be depart from the usual political gamesmanship and actually do something constructive for the American people.

Illegal Aliens Plotted July 4th Mass Shooting, Thwarted by American ‘Hero Citizen’

The pair of suspects arrested for allegedly plotting to “shoot up” a Fourth of July celebration in Richmond, Virginia — thwarted by an American citizen — are illegal aliens, court records state.

On Wednesday, as Breitbart News reported, the Richmond Police Department announced the arrests of Guatemalan nationals 52-year-old illegal alien Julio Alvardo Dubon and 38-year-old illegal alien Rolman Balacarcel Ac for allegedly plotting a mass shooting at the city’s July 4th celebration.

According to Police Chief Gerald Smith, Dubon and Ac’s plan was thwarted thanks to an American “hero citizen” who overheard a conversation about the plot and subsequently called the police.

Court records, reviewed by the Associated Press (AP), identify both Dubon and Ac as illegal aliens living in the U.S. Specifically, Dubon had been living in the U.S. on an expired visa, as millions often do:

Police spokesperson Tracy Walker said both men are from Guatemala. Initial documents filed in General District Court in Richmond say both Alvarado-Dubon and Balacarcel are not in the U.S. legally. The documents, which say Alvarado-Dubon has an expired visa, did not include any details about the alleged plot. [Emphasis added]

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) confirmed to Breitbart News that agents have lodged detainers on both illegal aliens so that they will be turned over to the agency for arrest and deportation when they are released from local police custody.

Likewise, ICE agents confirmed that Ac is a twice-deported illegal alien who was previously deported in October 2013 and then later in August 2014.

The American citizen who thwarted the mass shooting plot called police after he heard a man discussing a plan to “shoot up” Richmond’s annual Fourth of July celebration.

That is when police raided Dubon’s residence to find two rifles, a handgun, and 223 rounds of ammunition. Dubon was subsequently charged with being in possession of a firearm as an alien to the U.S.

After police reached out to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Smith said they put surveillance on Ac who lived at the same residence as Dubon.

Ac was then arrested and charged with being in possession of a firearm as an alien to the U.S. Smith said they still do not have a clear motive as to why the pair allegedly sought to conduct a mass shooting on American citizens on July 4th.

“There is no telling how many citizens this hero citizen saved from one phone call … one phone call saved numerous lives on the Fourth of July,” Smith said.

Dubon has been booked into the Richmond City Jail on a $15,000 bail. Though police said Ac was also booked, his records do not appear in the city jail’s records.

Red States: Biden Eroding American Sovereignty by Releasing Over a Million Border Crossers into U.S.

President Joe Biden is eroding United States sovereignty as his administration has released over a million border crossers and illegal aliens into American communities since he took office in late January 2021, an amicus brief signed by 17 states alleges.

The brief — signed by officials from Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, West Virginia, and Wyoming — was filed last week in a case against the Biden administration for their seeking to drastically reduce arrests and deportations of illegal aliens in the U.S.

As noted, Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is using the little-known “humanitarian parole” authority to release tens of thousands of border crossers and illegal aliens into the U.S. interior every month.

“Although most migrants that DHS encounters are supposed to be subject to mandatory detention if they are not immediately removed DHS has circumvented this mandate too through abuse of its parole authority under 8 U.S.C. §1182(d)(5),” the brief states:

That parole authority is carefully circumscribed “within narrow parameters,” and requires individualized decisions that are made “case-by-case and with a public-interest justification.” But DHS has instead been “releas[ing] undocumented immigrants into the United States en masse” under that authority. [Emphasis added]

The brief suggests that three-fourths of illegal aliens arriving at the southern border are evading Border Patrol agents while the “small portion that DHS does not slip through the agency’s fingers entirely, DHS unlawfully paroles many of them into the U.S. rather than detaining them.”

“For the vast majority of migrants unlawfully entering the U.S., actual enforcement of U.S. immigration laws by DHS is thus the rare exception, rather than the rule,” the brief states.

As Breitbart News has reported, Biden’s DHS has released nearly 1.05 million border crossers and illegal aliens into American communities since February 2021. This is a foreign population twice the size of Wyoming’s, about 84,000 people larger than the population of Austin, Texas, and twice the population of Atlanta, Georgia.

In May, alone, Biden’s DHS released more than 95,000 border crossers and illegal aliens into the U.S. interior — nearly 30,000 people larger than the population of Portland, Maine. In April, Biden’s DHS released nearly 118,000 and in March, the agency released over 80,000.

The case is Texas v. United States, No. 22-40367 in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.

San Antonio Human Smuggling Death Toll Rises to 51 as White House Says the Border is Closed

The death toll in the human smuggling operation involving a tractor trailer filled with illegal aliens has risen to 51 people. Mexican Foreign Secretary Marcelo Ebrard Casaubon said on Twitter that among the victims were 22 Mexican nationals, seven Guatemalans and two Hondurans.

TEXAS – […] Bexar County Precinct 1 Commissioner Rebeca Clay-Flores said the death toll has risen to 51 people during a press conference Tuesday afternoon. Initially, 46 people were found dead in the trailer Monday and 16 people were hospitalized, authorities said.

The death count was the highest ever from a smuggling incident in the United States, according to Craig Larrabee, acting special agent in charge of Homeland Security Investigations in San Antonio.

“This is a horror that surpasses anything we’ve experienced before,” said San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg. “And it’s sadly a preventable tragedy.”

The Baptist Health System in San Antonio received five patients and two have since died, spokesperson Natalie Gutierrez told USA TODAY. She said three remained in critical condition.

Two people were taken to University Hospital in San Antonio, including an adolescent male and a 23-year-old woman, the University Health System said on Twitter. Both were in critical condition. (read more)

Press Conference:

[embedded content]

The White House released the following statement:

The tragic loss of life in San Antonio, Texas that took place yesterday is horrifying and heartbreaking.  Our prayers are with those who lost their lives, their loved ones, as well as those still fighting for their lives. As always, I am grateful for the swift work of all of the Federal, state, and local first responders.

While we are still learning all the facts about what happened and the Department of Homeland Security has the lead for the investigation, initial reports are that this tragedy was caused by smugglers or human traffickers who have no regard for the lives they endanger and exploit to make a profit.

This incident underscores the need to go after the multi-billion dollar criminal smuggling industry preying on migrants and leading to far too many innocent deaths. In Los Angeles two weeks ago, I announced that the United States has launched a first-of-its kind anti-smuggling campaign with our regional partners.  In the first three months, we have made over 2,400 arrests, and that work will only intensify in the months ahead.  

Exploiting vulnerable individuals for profit is shameful, as is political grandstanding around tragedy, and my Administration will continue to do everything possible to stop human smugglers and traffickers from taking advantage of people who are seeking to enter the United States between ports of entry. (link)

White House Spokesperson Karine Jeane-Pierre was questioned about the events and delivered a weird response claiming the border is closed:

MS. JEAN-PIERRE:  So, 46 people died — right? — in the state of Texas, and so — and others, as I just mentioned, are still fighting for their lives.

So we’re still learning their names.  Their families are still learning they lost loved ones, as when a tragic situation normally happens.  We’re focused on them, on the facts, and holding the human strugglers [smugglers] who endangered vulnerable individual — individuals for profits accountable.

And we’re — and we’re focused on continuing our historic actions to disrupt dangerous smuggling networks, including through a new anti-smuggling campaign that just in the first two months resulted in over 1,800 arrests.  But the fact of the matter is the border is closed, which is in part why you see people trying to make this dangerous journey using smuggling networks.

Exclusive–Angel Moms Slam Cornyn’s Talk of Amnesty: ‘Not a Joking Matter’

Angel Moms, the mothers of American citizens killed by illegal aliens, are slamming Sen. John Cornyn’s (R-TX) suggestion that Republicans are working on an amnesty deal with Senate Democrats.

This week, Cornyn suggested that he and Sen. Alex Padilla (D-CA) were working on a legislative plan that would provide amnesty to potentially millions of illegal aliens.

Cornyn later told Breitbart News in a statement that the remark was “a joke.”

Angel Moms who spoke exclusively with Breitbart News said the slightest hints of amnesty for illegal aliens out of Washington, D.C., are not a joking matter to them.

Angel Mom Mary Ann Mendoza, whose 32-year-old son Brandon Mendoza was killed by an illegal alien in May 2014 in Arizona, told Breitbart News that “there is no excuse for joking about working on an amnesty bill” when “the border is in complete chaos and an orchestrated invasion is taking place there.”

“American citizens don’t deserve to be second best to illegal aliens in our country … this is not a joking matter to Angel Families,” Mendoza said. “We have fought long and hard for our innocent loved ones killed by illegal criminals who weren’t vetted and who were repeatedly shown leniency in our courts.”

Angel Mom Sabine Durden Coulter noted that talks of amnesty in Washington, D.C., are often followed by massive waves of illegal immigration as the Mexican drug cartels use the news to entice foreign nationals to take the deadly journey to the United States-Mexico border.

“Any talk, mention, or whisper of amnesty creates a ripple effect to signal to illegal aliens inside and outside of our country, that there might be a deal,” Angel Mom Sabine Durden Coulter told Breitbart News. “That draws more to come.”

Durden Coulter’s son Dominic Durden was murdered by an illegal alien in July 2012 in the sanctuary state of California.

“Next month will mark 10 years since my only child, my son Dominic was killed by an illegal alien who didn’t suffer any consequences for being here illegally for years while committing crimes … why are American citizens last on the list of these politicians? What’s the payoff for them? Does the oath they swore mean nothing?” Durden Coulter said.

Angel Mom Kiyan Michael, whose 21-year-old son Brandon Randolph Michael was killed in 2007 by a twice-deported illegal alien, told Breitbart News that she “would recommend to Senator Cornyn that amnesty should always be off the table.”

“Any type of immigration reform should start with closing the border and vetting those who are coming into this country,” Michael said.

Angel Mom Agnes Gibboney, whose 29-year-old son Ronald Da Silva was killed by an illegal alien in 2002, told Breitbart News that amnesty for illegal aliens previously failed to stop future waves of illegal immigration under former President Ronald Reagan in the late 1980s.

“We have done this, under President Reagan, and it proved to be a complete failure,” Gibboney said of amnesty. “The flow of illegal aliens has never stopped … those in charge are not respecting the wishes of their constituents.”

“We need to make our voices heard,” she continued. “We cannot be silenced, as our loved ones were by open border policies.”

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) immediately rebuked Cornyn’s suggestion of amnesty, writing in a statement that such a deal is “a nonstarter” with a future House GOP majority.

Likewise, Republican Study Committee (RSC) Chairman Jim Banks (R-IN) wrote that House Republicans “are united and so are our voters” against amnesty for illegal aliens.

Today, there are anywhere from 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the U.S., costing American taxpayers more than $143 billion every year. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) has long estimated that potentially 2,000 Americans are killed every year by illegal aliens.

Ten Years Later: Over 53K Illegal Aliens Given DACA Despite Arrest Records Including for Murder, Rape, Kidnapping

Ten years ago, in 2012, former President Barack Obama created the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program via executive order that has allowed nearly 800,000 illegal aliens to evade arrest and deportation.

Standards for the Obama program were set so low that tens of thousands of illegal aliens with prior arrest records for crimes like murder, rape, and kidnapping were able to secure DACA status.

In 2018, then-President Trump’s administration released comprehensive data on DACA, previously hidden by the Obama administration, that revealed the extent to which the program had successfully helped shield criminal illegal aliens from arrest and deportation by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency.

From 2012 to 2018, about 53,792 illegal aliens were awarded DACA despite having prior arrest records. Meanwhile, nearly 8,000 illegal aliens awarded DACA were later arrested for crimes, the data shows.

For instance, thousands of illegal aliens were given DACA status despite arrests for drug crimes, assault, burglary, gun crimes, money laundering, hit-and-run, sexual abuse, child pornography, and robbery, among others.

More than 30 illegal aliens were given DACA status despite having previously been arrested for rape. Ten illegal aliens, likewise, were awarded DACA after having been arrested for murder and 95 illegal aliens after having been arrested for kidnapping.

As Breitbart News has chronicled for years, thousands of DACA illegal aliens have gone on to commit crimes against Americans.

In 2019, for example, 23-year-old illegal alien Jesus Manzanilla Alvarado was given just six months in prison after having been convicted of repeatedly sexually assaulting a 68-year-old hospital patient who was suffering from anxiety and depression in St. Cloud, Minnesota.

Alvarado had been awarded DACA years prior, ICE officials confirmed at the time, and had multiple run-ins with the law. DACA allowed him to secure a job and remain in the U.S.
