Illegal aliens in New Jersey have gone on a hunger strike to lobby state lawmakers to pass a taxpayer-funded program that would provide them with potentially billions in unemployment and stimulus benefits. This month, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) and state Democrats struck a budget deal that includes $2.1 billion of taxpayer money for nearly 300,000 illegal aliens. Those eligible will get a one-time payment of $15,600 , the equivalent of about $300 a week for a year. The aid to illegal aliens in New York is $1.1 billion more than tax credits and grants authorized for small businesses in the state. Now, illegal aliens in New Jersey — backed by groups like Make the Road, the New Jersey Immigrant Alliance for Justice, and the New Jersey Policy Perspective — are on a hunger strike to lobby Gov. Phil Murphy (D) for a New York-style benefits program. The illegal aliens are asking for $2,000 direct cash payments and $600 weekly benefits.

President Joe Biden’s administration is ordering Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents, as well as agents with the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency, to stop using the terms “illegal alien” and “assimilation.” Memos sent by top Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials on Monday told ICE agents and CBP agents to stop referring to illegal aliens as “illegal aliens,” opting instead for the terms “noncitizen” or “migrant,” according to the Washington Post . The term “assimilation,” the DHS officials wrote in the memos, must be replaced with “integration” while “illegal” should be changed to “undocumented.” The Post reports: “As the nation’s premier law enforcement agency, we set a tone and example for our country and partners across the world,” Troy Miller, CBP’s top official, said in his memo. “We enforce our nation’s laws while also maintaining the dignity of every individual with whom we interact. The words we use matter and will serve to … [Read more...] about Biden Orders ICE Agents to Stop Using Terms ‘Illegal Alien,’ ‘Assimilation’
President Joe Biden’s administration is being pressed to disclose where the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are sending border crossers and illegal aliens in the United States. As of April 10, Breitbart News exclusively reported , the Biden administration has released nearly 42,000 border crossers into the U.S. interior while about 6,400 more have been released after having been enrolled in the now-defunct “Remain in Mexico” program. Those released into the U.S. interior by the Biden administration can quickly apply for one-year work permits to take American jobs after they travel throughout the country, usually on Greyhound buses, until they reach their final destination. A group of House Republicans, led by Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), is now asking the Biden administration to disclose where border crossers and illegal aliens are being resettled: The widespread abuse and criminality does not end at the border, because as … [Read more...] about Joe Biden Pressed to Disclose Where Illegal Aliens Are Being Sent in U.S.
Shocking video out of Texas shows a rescue operation conducted by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents last week on the Rio Grande river. In the video, obtained by CNN and reportedly recorded last week, Border Patrol agents can be seen rescuing two children clinging to an island on the river after they attempted to cross but became trapped by the quick-moving currents. The two children, whose names CBP did not release, were reportedly of Honduran descent, ages 7 and 13. The two are not related and became separated from their parents in Mexico, according to CNN. ADVERTISEMENT A man claimed that he would help them cross the river and enter the U.S., the two reportedly told the agents, but abandoned them. Their rescue comes amid a surge of migrants, particularly unaccompanied minors, making the treacherous journey across Central America to the U.S.-Mexico border, where they hope to apply for asylum or eventually be reunited with family members. The Biden … [Read more...] about Video shows border patrol rescuing two migrant children clinging to river island
Former President George W. Bush says the United States needs more foreign workers to take American jobs, even as nearly 17 million Americans are unemployed. During an interview with the Today morning show, Bush said President Joe Biden’s administration ought to increase legal immigration levels to fill American jobs with more foreign workers as the U.S.-Mexico border is overwhelmed with skyrocketing illegal immigration. “We need to change the work visas,” Bush said. “There are a lot of jobs that are empty and there are a lot of jobs that need to be filled. And yet there are people willing to work hard to do so … a combination of those two would help alleviate some of the border.” Already, the U.S. annually admits about 1.2 million legal immigrants on green cards to permanently resettle in the country. In addition, another 1.4 million foreign workers are admitted every year on visas to take American jobs. Despite Bush’s claims, research has continuously debunked business … [Read more...] about George W. Bush Says U.S. Needs More Foreign Workers to Take Jobs as 16.6M Americans Unemployed
