    The Seattle City Council is calling on Washington state to create a $100 million “relief fund” for illegal immigrants who did not qualify for the federal stimulus checks issued last month -- the latest push by left-wing politicians to give money to those in the country illegally. The city’s council passed a resolution Monday asking Gov. Jay Inslee to create a “Washington Worker Relief Fund” to provide “economic assistance to undocumented Washingtonians during the COVID-19 pandemic.” According to The Seattle Times, the vote was 9-0 and Mayor Jenny Durkan was to sign the measure. “Looking out for the most vulnerable in our community...

  • Outrageous! Court Agrees Gov. Newsom’s Plan to Give Taxpayer Money to Illegal Aliens Likely Illegal, But Allows it to Proceed Anyway

    Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch requested a temporary restraining order against California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) and his Director of the California Department of Social Services Kim Johnson to prevent them from giving nearly $80 million of taxpayers’ money in cash payments and benefits to illegal aliens amid the Coronavirus pandemic. The court found that Newsom likely had no authority to give illegal aliens taxpayer money but that ‘there was a public interest in sending tax money to illegal aliens during the Coronavirus crisis.’ – Judicial Watch reported. “It is astonishing that a court would allow a public official to...

    Californians struggling to make ends meet during extended coronavirus shutdowns were not amused when their governor, Gavin Newsom, announced the creation of a public-private partnership to give away $125 million ($500/person) in pandemic relief grants to illegal immigrants who are ineligible to receive unemployment benefits or federal stimulus checks (because they are not here legally, duh). Newsom further explained that of the $125 million in funding, $75 million would come from taxpayer funds (without explaining any legislative process appropriating such funds) and that “a group of charities” had promised to chip in $50 million.  -snip On April 22 Ricardo Benitez, a legal...

    Democratic governors and mayors are going around Congress to put money into the pockets of illegal immigrants who were excluded from receiving the $1,200 coronavirus relief checks that are part of the $2.2 trillion stimulus plan approved last month, according to a report. California Gov. Gavin Newsom created a private-public $125 million fund that illegal immigrants would be able to draw from and Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot expanded city benefits, including money from the city’s Small Business Resiliency Program, for illegal immigrants. Minneapolis, run by Democratic Mayor Jacob Frey, is creating a $5 million funding package that would be available...

    It’s time to start thinking about what our immigration system might look like in a post-coronavirus world. it won't be what it is now.President Trump’s announcement late Tuesday night that he would sign an executive order “to temporarily suspend immigration” was met with predictable charges of racism, xenophobia, and scapegoating from mainstream media pundits and Democrats who see it as a cynical attempt to use the coronavirus pandemic as an excuse to enact his hardline immigration agenda. But in fact an executive order suspending all immigration would just be a formal acknowledgement of the current status quo. The emergency measures...

    A 15-year-old Marietta murder suspect is to be deported to El Salvador once released from criminal custody, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says. Brayan Segura, also known to authorities as Brayan Eduardo Rivas and Brayan Rivas-Segura, was arrested by Marietta police on April 9, accused of the stabbing death of 14-year-old Marietta girl Janina Valenzuela the evening prior. Police said Segura told them he stabbed Valenzuela near The Arbors at East Cobb apartment complex on April 8 as part of an initiation into the MS-13 criminal street gang, because she claimed to be from a rival gang, 18th Street.

    California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced on Wednesday plans to give cash payments to adult immigrants living illegally in the state to help them weather the coronavirus crisis. The plan, which would use a mix of taxpayer money and charitable donations from corporations and philanthropists, will give 150,000 adults $500 each during the coronavirus outbreak, the governor said. California has had an estimated 2 million immigrants living in the country illegally. They have not been eligible for the $2.2 trillion stimulus package approved by Congress last month, which pledged cash payments to most Americans while boosting unemployment benefits by $600 per...

    Chicago Democratic Mayor Lori Lightfoot has signed an executive order that guarantees all residents, including illegal immigrants, access to the city’s assistance programs during the coronavirus pandemic. Lightfoot’s executive order Tuesday includes access to new programs specifically designed for COVID-19 economic relief such as housing assistance, online education resources for public school students, and small business loans, regardless of whether the person is in the country legally. “This order is more than just an official decree, it is a statement of our values as a city and as Americans,” Lightfoot said in a statement. “Since COVID-19 first reached our city’s doorstep, we have been...

    California Governor Gavin Newsom said Tuesday he is working on a plan with the state legislature to provide economic relief for California residents who are in the country illegally. “Californians care deeply about undocumented residents in this state,” Newsom said. About 2 million people in California are likely residing in the country illegally, according to the California Latino Legislative Caucus, which has asked the governor to provide cash assistance to those without citizenship status, since they are not eligible for the stimulus checks and other benefits provided in the $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus bill passed by Congress.

'Thanks to GOP, these checks will be cut off the backs of *taxpaying immigrants,* who get nothing. Many are essential workers who pay more taxes than Amazon,' she continued.

    As part of an unprecedented $2 trillion stimulus bill expected to pass the Senate on Wednesday night, many Americans experiencing financial hardship due to COVID-19 will soon be eligible for a $1,200 check and expanded unemployment benefits. But despite promises from Democratic congressional leaders, the sweeping legislation will leave behind some of the country's most vulnerable residents: undocumented immigrants and mixed status families. According to a draft of the bill, the relief explicitly excludes those without Social Security numbers from obtaining the one-time cash assistance payments that will soon be sent to millions of Americans. Even more glaring, advocates said,...

    Rashida Tlaib just sunk the Democrats with a stunning proposal to deal with the coronavirus including giving direct cash to illegal immigrants. Her plan says: “In response to the Coronavirus crisis, the Automatic BOOST to Communities Act would immediately provide a U.S. Debit Card pre-loaded with $2000 to every person in America. Each card would be recharged with $1,000 monthly until one year after the end of the Coronavirus crisis. Guaranteeing Universality “Every person” includes: Dependents, so a couple with two children would receive 4 x $2000 = $8000 in total.

    A Trump administration official said Sunday that illegal border crossings have dropped by half as the strictest U.S.-Mexico border policies yet went into place amid the coronavirus pandemic, but there was confusion about how it was all working. Anyone caught crossing the border illegally is to be immediately returned back to Mexico or Canada, according to the new restrictions based on an order from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention late Friday. According to Mark Morgan, the acting head of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the decision applies to all migrants. “We’re not going to take you into our...

    It would seem that protecting America from crime, disease, and lawlessness is an idea most people could support. In our hyper-polarized, decidedly irrational world, however, that is not the case. Grandstanding politicians openly defy federal immigration laws, while activist judges give them cover by thwarting attempts to restore order. It’s enough to make people ask, when will the law be applied for the good of the American people and the country? To those who ask the above question, here’s some good news: U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is utilizing new legal tactics to combat the dangerous effects of illegal...

    An illegal alien charged with child sexual abuse has been arrested by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency after New York’s sanctuary state policy released him into the general public. Edgar Vinicio Guzman-Borja, a 40-year-old illegal alien from Ecuador, was arrested by the New York City Police Department (NYPD) on February 2 and charged with first-degree sexual abuse, including contact with a victim less than 13-years-old and acting in a manner to injure a child less than 17-years-old. Subsequently, ICE agents asked the NYPD to turn Guzman-Borja over to them for arrest and deportation. Instead, thanks to the city and...

    One day in the courtroom, while serving as a special prosecutor on the American/Mexican border, I noticed a strange statistical oddity: 100 percent of all the defendants were men. I queried the US Marshals and was advised that the women’s sector at the detention facility was under strict quarantine because of a chickenpox outbreak. Border Patrol and ICE were working diligently to keep the outbreak under control and provide emergency medical care to the sick, striving to prevent the disease from reaching the greater American public. We were extremely lucky with the chickenpox outbreak (and incidentally, Border Patrol and ICE...
