Immigrants:

latest news at page 1:
    (CNN)Democrats in the Senate have for the third time tried to use a technical procedure to try to include immigration provisions in President Joe Biden's Build Back Better Act, putting everything on the line for what could be the last attempt to try to pass some sort of overhaul of the nation's immigration laws before the new year.The Senate parliamentarian considered arguments from Democratic and Republican aides Wednesday morning on whether immigration provisions could be included in a massive tax and spending bill that would expand the nation's social safety net.The process the parliamentarian is taking is known as a "Byrd bath" -- named after former Democratic Sen. Robert Byrd of West Virginia, who came up with the rule to stop either side from abusing the reconciliation process. The process would decide whether Democrats would succeed in passing a form of legalization for undocumented immigrants, a priority for the Biden administration. Elizabeth MacDonough's role as the Senate parliamentarian means she advises the chamber on how its rules, protocols and precedents should be applied as Democrats and the White House figure...
    French politicians and French voters prefer higher wages to more chaotic migration, the New York Times complains in a critical report about the French presidential election. “As French restaurants, hotels, construction companies and other services face a shortage of workers, politicians across the ideological spectrum have proposed raising wages, but not the number of immigrants allowed into the country,” says the December 2 report by the newspaper’s reporter, Norimitsu Onishi. France’s economy is hobbled by the pro-French views of French voters and French politicians, and by the French dislike of the migrant jihadis who kill French people, according to the New York Times‘ reporter and his editors: These concerns have had a cumulative effect in France — making any embrace of immigration political suicide, obstructing badly needed reforms to attract qualified workers from abroad and pushing inward a country once known as a global crossroads. The article also served up a sustained criticism of a nationalist French author, Eric Zemmour, who announced his candidacy for the French presidency. The announcement came in a 10-minute, November 30 video, where Zemmour recounted the historical...

    PARIS, Nov 29 (Reuters) – The French government is set to resume talks to find an agreement with London on the migration crisis, Interior Minister Gralt Dormann said on Monday. It also calls on Great Britain to open the legal path to allowing asylum seekers into its territory. Gralt Dormann announced that Paris had invited London to reduce its economic attractiveness and that Jean Costex would write to Boris Johnson on Tuesday to explain the French demands. Fighting over immigrants has fueled controversy over fishing and escalated tensions between Brexit over London and Paris. “We hear what the British from Europe are asking: everyone must respect their duties,” he added, adding that there were no British soldiers in Great Britain or police patrolling the French coast. “Not seriously” for him. Strengthening Coastal Surveillance Following the deaths of 27 migrants trying to cross the canal to reach the UK last week, Interior Minister Gralt Dormின்n announced a number of decisions taken by Emmanuel Macron to strengthen the means of combating the kidnapping networks. Two key measures were put forward, namely the...
    More than 6 million illegal immigrants in the United States would be granted amnesty and allowed to obtain government benefits by House Democrats’ Build Back Better Act, according to a review by the Congressional Budget Office. The CBO concluded in November that approximately 6.5 million noncitizens who live in the U.S. largely as a result of illegally crossing the southern border before January 2011 would be granted parole and immediately go from being unlawfully present to lawfully present. The proposal would be the largest-ever amnesty, double the size of the one that went through during the Reagan administration in 1986. The term amnesty refers to being pardoned, in this case for the federal offense of illegally entering the country between ports of entry and residing in the U.S. without permission. “Many of those parolees would subsequently receive lawful permanent resident (LPR) status. A few million other people, most of whom are already in the United States, would gain LPR status through the provisions ... or as immediate relatives of those who gain LPR status under the bill,” the CBO stated...
    AUSTIN, Texas -- Luz Rivas remembers seeing the word on her mother's residency card as a child: "alien."In the stark terms of the government, it signaled her mother was not yet a citizen of the U.S. But to her young daughter, the word had a more personal meaning. Even though they were going through the naturalization process, it meant the family did not belong."I want other children of immigrants, like me, to not feel the same way I did, that my family did, when we saw the word 'alien'," said Rivas, now an assemblywoman in the California Legislature.The Democratic lawmaker sought to retire the term and this year authored a bill - since signed into law - that replaces the use of "alien" in state statutes with other terms such as "noncitizen" or "immigrant."

    AUSTIN, Texas (CBSDFW.COM/AP) – Some states are considering dropping terms for immigrants that have been criticized as “dehumanizing.” Earlier this year, California and Colorado banned state agencies from using the word “alien” to refer to immigrants who entered the US without permission. READ MORE: Dallas Police Ask Public For Help Finding Deadly Hit-And-Run SuspectsSupporters of the change say the word is demeaning and dehumanizing, and can have an impact on the treatment of immigrants. The Biden administration took a similar step for federal agencies, changing the preferred terminology to “noncitizen” or “migrant.” Officials are also discouraged from using the term “illegal” when discussing an undocumented immigrant, and from using the term “assimilation” instead of “integration.” However, many states continue to use the controversial terms. That includes Texas, where a legislative effort to end its use recently failed.

    Former President Donald Trump slammed the Biden administration over vaccine mandates, inflation, the southern border crisis and more on Friday in a wide-ranging interview, but still plugged the COVID-19 vaccine that he was 'very proud' to get.  Trump told FOX Business' Stuart Varney that he 'wanted' Biden 'to be successful,' but claims his handling of COVID-19 and implementing vaccine mandates was a 'disaster.'  'Look, I wanted [Biden] to be successful on the whole thing on COVID – or as I call it, the China virus,' Trump told Varney on 'Varney & Co.' on Friday.  'I wanted him to be successful.

    Posted on November 25, 2021 at 6:21 pmUpdated November 25, 2021, at 10:26 PM Faced with an increase in illegal shortcuts on the channel, the British have repeatedly expressed their desire to see France deal with this traffic more firmly. After the dramatic shipwreck on the coast , Thursday morning headlines, photo of an inflatable boat loaded with immigrants heading out to sea a few meters away from a French police car can only reinforce this sense of impatience. “It simply came to our notice then. This is not surprising, but it is a reminder of how vulnerable these vulnerable people are at the hands of kidnappers, ”Home Minister Priti Patel told the House of Commons. When repeatedly asked how the government could put pressure on France, the Minister responded that in conjunction with Prime Minister Boris Johnson, a number of concessions had been made in Paris, such as technical mechanisms, joint patrols and an agreement to define conditions.

    A study on migration to the Unites States found that 67 percent of the undocumented immigrants who are living in the country migrated from Central America and Mexico. The report was released Tuesday by the Migration Policy Institute, World Food Programme and Civic Data Design Lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology also revealed that 43 percent of the immigrants have been living in the U.S. for more than 15 years. The project shows that Mexicans make up 48 percent (5.31 million) of the 11 million undocumented immigrants population.  Salvadorians (741,000) and Guatemalans (724,000) each represent slightly over 7 percent of the undocumented immigrants who call the U.S. home. People from Honduras make up the remainder of the two thirds, with around 4 percent of illegal migrants - 490,000 people - coming from there.

    A retired tax lawyer has revealed what he's learned from eating in nearly 8,000 Chinese restaurants across the US.     David R Chan, 72, from Los Angeles has dined at 7,812 Chinese restaurants and counting, over four decades and has kept a spreadsheet detailing each one.   With a collection of thousands of restaurant business cards and menus, the third-generation Chinese American said the journey began as a 'search for his identity'   but it also chronicles how the changing culture of Chinese immigrants in the US.  He first made the spreadsheet in the early 90s, when he bought his first home computer, and despite a palate for Asian cuisine he admits he still can't use chopsticks and doesn't class himself as foodie.

    In his first eight months in office, President Joe Biden helped grow the nation’s record-high foreign-born population by nearly two million over the last year, new analysis based on United States Census Bureau data suggests. The analysis, conducted by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), used Census Bureau data to determine that from October 2020 to September 2021, the nation’s foreign-born population grew to about 45.7 million — an increase of 1.8 million foreign-born residents. Those counted in the total include illegal aliens and legal immigrants. Hispanic foreign-born residents account for one million of the 1.8 million, or nearly 6-in-10 of all new arrivals over the last year. “Growth in the total immigrant population can only be caused by new legal and illegal immigrants arriving from abroad … for the immigrant population to grow, new arrivals must exceed return migration and deaths,” CIS researchers Steven Camarota and Karen Zeigler note. The total number of foreign-born residents now living in the U.S. is now the highest ever in American history. Though the foreign-born share of the population remains historically high, it...
    "Demonstrators march through downtown calling for the abolition of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on August 16, 2018 in Chicago, Illinois." Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) possibly detained as many as 800 U.S. citizens over the past several years, according to a nonpartisan government watchdog earlier this year. Among them has been Brian Bukle, who in a lawsuit made public this week said he was detained by federal immigration officials for more than a month despite repeated cries that he is in fact a U.S. citizen. Not only did ICE ignore Bukle’s pleas—“they want you out, they don’t want you here,” one agent told him—he was jailed at a private immigration detention prison that has already been at the center of litigation over unsafe conditions amid the novel coronavirus pandemic. Officials “didn’t care about me or my life,” Bukle said in a statement.  Bukle, who is originally from the British Virgin Islands and has been a U.S. citizen since the age of 9, should have been released by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) after completing his time last year. But Asian Americans Advancing Justice—Asian Law Caucus, the American...
    We don't have Thanksgiving without them. Senate Democratic aides met informally with Senate Parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonaugh on Tuesday to gauge the prospects of the immigration compromise they had reached for President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better bill. While she didn’t endorse the proposal, she didn’t reject it, sources said to Axios. The measure passed the House last week with the compromise amendment that provides a 10-year parole for undocumented immigrants, with temporary work permits and deportation protections. The original proposal included a path to citizenship for approximately 8 million undocumented immigrants, including Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients, temporary protected status (TPS) holders, farmworkers, and essential workers. MacDonough, a Senate staffer serving at the pleasure of Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, rejected that proposal. Democrats came up with a second alternative, which would have legalized millions of immigrants who entered the U.S. by 1972 to register for green cards. MacDonough also rejected that. The House accepted those rejections legislatively, working with Senate Democrats to arrive at Plan C—temporary protections in a parole kind of system. They aren’t too happy about that alternative, however. Dozens of House members, including California...
    French Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin has claimed that there may be as many as 700,000 migrants living in France who do not have valid residency papers. The French interior minister claimed that the figure was, in fact, quite low for a major European country, noting the illegal immigrant population of the United Kingdom was estimated at between 1 and 1.5 million. “France has far fewer illegal immigrants than most of the major countries in Europe, starting with Great Britain: between 1 and 1.5 million against 600,000 to 700,000 for us,” Darmanin told French media this week, newspaper La Provence reports. Exact figures for illegal immigrants are not known, but Darmanin’s statistics are likely based on the State Medical Aid (AME) system which gives healthcare to illegal immigrants living in French territory. In September, a report noted that France intended to spend as much as €1 billion (£860 million/$1.17 billion) on the AME system in 2022, up from the previous budget of  €990 (£850 million/$1.162 billion) from this year.

    Haitian community leaders, immigrant community members, and their supporters gather at the Newark Immigration and Customs Enforcement field office to demand that President Biden's administration stop deportations and restore the right to asylum on October 22, 2021, in Newark, New Jersey. Because of a letter sent to federal immigration officials earlier this month, an attorney was able to provide an in-person legal presentation to a group of Haitian asylum-seekers who have been detained at a New Mexico detention facility without any access to assistance. This presentation was among the demands outlined in the document submitted by a number of immigrant and civil rights advocates. But in a second letter this week, they say that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has failed to comply with the remaining demands, including a halt to deportations until detained migrants can meet with an attorney. “We remain deeply concerned that these individuals are being deprived of their legal rights, including access to counsel, and are being subject to disparate treatment in their removal proceedings,” advocates wrote in this second letter. “Through the first letter, advocates succeeded in prompting ICE to grant...
    Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) is introducing a measure to prevent taxpayer dollars from being spent in settlement payments to illegal immigrants stemming from litigation against the federal government. Boebert said in a statement: In Biden’s America, it is better to be a criminal than a law enforcement officer. Border Patrol agents may be fired because of Biden’s vaccine mandate for federal employees, but illegal aliens get a free pass into our country and could receive a $450,000 check. For contrast, the highest-paid Border Patrol agents make less than half that in yearly salary after 20 years of service. I’ve had enough of the Biden regime’s madness, so I introduced the We’re Not Paying You to Break Our Laws Act to restore sanity and the rule of law. We should be putting Americans first, not criminals! Boebert introduced the “We’re Not Paying You to Break Our Laws Act” on Monday after the Wall Street Journal reported last month that the Biden administration was in talks to give $450,000 to immigrant families separated under Trump. Although President Biden told reporters these payments are “not gonna happen,” Biden’s Deputy...
    Demonstrators rally for an ICE-free country during a 2018 protest Illinois earlier this year passed a law that effectively ends immigration detention in the state, roughly two years after banning private immigration detention facilities. It’s a blueprint that states all over the nation should copy to unclench the grasps of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on communities. But this victory could now be at risk. Injustice Watch reports that two Illinois counties that have profited to the tune of millions from federal contracts have sued over the law. While the state will fight it, “the counties have asked U.S. District Judge Philip G. Reinhard of the Northern District of Illinois to issue a temporary injunction that would allow them to keep their ICE contracts while the case is litigated,” Carlos Ballesteros reports. The Illinois Way Forward Act, signed into place by Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker this past summer, instructs local jails to end their ICE contracts by the beginning of next year and prohibits renewing any existing agreements. Immigrants who call the state home noted the immense personal stakes at play, saying the law’s passage has “greatly reduced ICE’s ability...
    In an interview with La Voix du Nord released on Thursday evening, Emmanuel Macron said that Paris should “strengthen cooperation” on the difficult issue of immigrants with London. The head of state recognizes it Immigration visit Wanting to move to the United Kingdom creates “a very difficult situation for college residents”. “I will carry out reforms within the framework of the French president of the European Union,” he notes, from January 1. “We have the British, they are oscillating between partnership and provocation. We need to strengthen more. Together. If those who want to join the UK (immigrants) have a family there, it should be part of the family reunification. If they were hit by kidnappers, we would have to break this system, ”he added. According to the Maritime Province, Between January 1 and August 31, about 15,400 migrants attempted to cross the dangerous canal., Of which 3,500 were “rescued with difficulty” at the strait and brought back to the French coast. Emmanuel Macron said on Wednesday that he had spoken with the mayor of Calais “to help his city...
    Detained immigrants are at risk on ICE Air’s charters, which face minimal regulation by aviation watchdog agencies. By Angelika Albaladejo for Capital & Main This article was produced in partnership with USA Today. As a private jet hired by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to transport immigrant detainees landed in Louisiana, heavy smoke filled the cabin. It became increasingly hard for the 168 passengers—guards, officers, crew, and undocumented immigrants—to breathe. Some yelled for help as they choked on toxic fumes for eight minutes. But the pilot stuck to normal procedures, taxiing down the airport runway, and parking, as usual, in front of the Alexandria detention center. By the time they escaped the aircraft, many were dizzy; Some were vomiting and required medical attention. Barely a year later, that same quarter-century-old jet caught fire during a crash landing and left shackled passengers struggling to escape as flight attendants discovered that one of the emergency slides didn’t work. These dangerous incidents on immigration flights—and nearly 100 more—during Barack Obama’s second term and Donald Trump’s early years in office are detailed in thousands of pages...
    about this Write German wave. Merkel has been accused of contradicting the EU’s position and effectively recognizing Lukashenko as Belarus’ leader. For example, Omid Nouripur, a member of the Green Party and a member of the Bundestock International Affairs Committee, called the November 16 talks in Deutschlandfunk a “terrible signal.” He noted that the EU did not recognize Lukashenko as a legitimate president, but Merkel, after conducting the conversation, actually did. In Estonia, they are also frustrated in conversation. There, Marco Mickelson, chairman of the parliamentary foreign affairs committee, criticized Merkel. According to him, the acting president “thus recognized Lukashenko as the legitimate president of Belarus”. “This is a serious disappointment, because we have taken the general position that we do not recognize Lukashenko as head of state of Belarus., – says Michkelson. Poland has confirmed that it is outraged by the move. Deputy Prime Minister Yaroslav Kaczynski noted that “internationalization is certainly necessary, but not enough to negotiate with our heads and make such proposals.” And on October 26, Merkel’s term ended. However, German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier He asked...
              moreby Steven Camarota   The budget reconciliation package pushed by Democrats creates a new expanded child tax credit (CTC) that would pay illegal immigrants some $10.5 billion next year. All immigrants with children are eligible, regardless of how they got here and whether their children are U.S.-born. This includes the roughly 600,000 unaccompanied minors and persons in family units stopped at the border in FY2021 and released into the country pending a hearing. Cash welfare to illegal immigrants is not just costly; it also encourages more illegal immigration. Although it is referred to as a “refundable credit,” the new CTC, like the old additional child tax credit (ACTC) it replaces, pays cash to low-income families who do not pay any federal income tax. The new program significantly increases the maximum cash payment from $1,400 per child to $3,600 for children under 6, and to $3,000 for children ages 6 to 17. After 2022, the maximum payment would be $2,000 per child, but advocates hope the much larger payments will be extended. In an analysis conducted in October, my colleague Karen Zeigler and I...
              moreby Debra Heine   The Biden administration has deputized non-profit groups to move illegal migrants across the nation, allowing the charities to put them up in nice hotels and give them instructions on how to avoid capture. Rep. Lance Gooden (R-Texas) said Monday that a whistleblower told him about an ongoing operation in San Diego, and decided to go there to see for himself what is going on. “What I found were nonprofits that were running secretive closed-down hotels, the four point Sheraton Sea World, a Wyndham, a Ramada Inn,” he revealed on Fox and Friends. Gooden said that he witnessed buses unloading about 100 illegal immigrants in about an hour at one hotel, and they were welcomed by the charity “with open arms.” Once the migrants are processed, and tested for COVID, Gooden said they are each given a packet, which detail how they can get past the TSA at the airport without any identification, as well as how to enroll their children in American schools. “It’s encouraging illegal immigration!” Gooden declared. Currently, over a thousand migrants are pushing their way...
    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) announced Tuesday it is suing the Sacramento County sheriff claiming his office illegally transferred immigrants to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The lawsuit claims Sheriff Scott Jones is breaking state law. READ MORE: Sacramento Could Be First To Establish 'Legal Right To Housing' — Here's How It Would WorkThe suit — which was filed Monday on behalf of Sacramento resident Michael Echeveste and area nonprofits United Latinos and NorCal Resist — alleges the sheriff’s office illegally transferred immigrants to ICE after the inmates have completed their jail sentences instead of releasing them back to their families and communities. Examples were cited, including one claiming the sheriff’s office told ICE that Echeveste was getting released, so they could cuff him as he left Rio back in 2018.

    Demonstrator holds an "Abolish ICE" sign during a 2019 protest. New Jersey’s Bergen County was the remaining locality in the state to continue holding a federal immigration contract when the commissioner board voted unanimously last month to end the agreement. Last Friday, the remaining 15 immigrants at the jail were removed, a week ahead of schedule. It was the culmination of years of organizing by immigrants and advocates. But they said hopes were still dashed that day, because rather than just releasing detained immigrants to their communities, officials transferred them elsewhere. While NorthJersey.com reports that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) would not say where the men were, advocates say they “were moved hundreds of miles away to Batavia, New York.” “Just after the stroke of midnight, people were roused from their sleep and told that they were being transferred,” the Interfaith Campaign For Just Closures said in a statement Monday. “At least one person was able to place a call to a family member to let them know what was happening before they were placed in vans and driven through the night, for seven hours, arriving after dawn on...
    Jennifer Harrison, right, listens to a woman from Colombia explain her difficulties, including the death of her husband, while walking her toward Customs and Border Protection agents. The presence of right-wing vigilantes along the U.S.-Mexico border has become so normalized in recent years that their activities—which usually entail harassing immigrants before turning them over to Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents—scarcely even raise any eyebrows anymore. This is particularly the case in their dealings with the CBP itself, which has developed an increasingly cozy relationship with these groups. That dynamic has been playing out in recent weeks near Yuma, Arizona, where the rabidly nativist, pro-Trump group AZ Patriots has been livestreaming its presence at a frequently used border crossing at the Morelos Dam. As Phoenix News Times reports, the group’s leader, Jennifer Harrison, can be seen harassing border-crossing asylum seekers, including children, as she shepherds them to awaiting CBP agents. x x YouTube Video Harrison interrogates the immigrants in the videos: “Why are you here?” she can be heard demanding in several. She also is seen demanding passports and other...
              moreby Bethany Blankley   The Biden administration won’t give members of Congress access to flight manifests of illegal immigrants flown into states from the southern border, Florida Rep. Kat Cammack says. Those entering the U.S. illegally, violating federal law, are instead being flown into the interior by the U.S. government paid for by taxpayers, a “slap in the face” to all Americans, she says. “When you look at the flights that are going on, the FAA has refused to give members of Congress like myself and my colleagues access to the manifest,” she told “Fox & Friends Weekend” Sunday. “They are covering this up at the discretion of the administration, and they will not give us information of who is coming in and when they’re bringing them in. And of course, they have to do it in the dead of night because like [U.S. House Speaker] Nancy Pelosi, you pass things in the dead of night because you don’t want the American people to know what’s in it. Just like this, [the Biden] administration is flying people into our communities in the...
    "U.S. Army Specialist Jesmaid Vondee embraces her daughter, Gracen Vondee, 4, following a naturalization ceremony where Jesmaid was sworn in as a new citizen at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services headquarters on November 09, 2021 in Camp Springs, Maryland." Roughly 808,000 people became U.S. citizens in the 2021 fiscal year, up from just over 625,000 in the 2020 fiscal year, CNN reports. The numbers come as the Biden administration also naturalized thousands of former and current military service members (as well as their family members) as part of the Veterans Day observance. It’s a good trend. Not only were U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) offices seriously impacted by the novel coronavirus pandemic, the previous administration used those service disruptions to its advantage, refusing to implement service alternatives for immigrants left in paperwork limbo.  In just one example, Philadelphia immigrants whose naturalization ceremonies were derailed by office closures were forced to sue the federal government in June 2020. USCIS had steadily refused to conduct virtual ceremonies even though nothing stopped it from going the Zoom route. Because immigrants and their application fees nearly entirely fund the agency,...
    Rep. Lance Gooden (R-TX) accused the two faith-based groups of 'running secretive, closed-down hotels.' But they have nothing to hide. Rep. Lance Gooden (R-TX) went on Fox News on Monday to attack two faith-based charities that are helping immigrants who are seeking asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border. In an appearance on "Fox & Friends," Gooden claimed that the two charities — Catholic Charities USA and the Jewish Family Foundation — are operating "secretive" programs to bring more "illegal aliens" into the United States. "What I found were non-profits that were running secretive, closed-down hotels," Gooden said, recounting a recent trip he had taken to San Diego. Gooden also attacked the humanitarian groups for "encouraging illegal immigration" by giving "packets" to refugees trying to start their lives in the United States. According to Gooden, the packets "detail how to go to the airport, how to get past TSA without any identification, how to enroll your children in schools and assimilate in whatever community you desire to go in." Finally, Gooden slammed companies...
    S.Assange’s Prime Minister Michael Gretchmer (CDU) has spoken out against accepting immigrants stranded on the border between Belarus and Poland in Germany. “We are not allowed to accept these immigrants in the EU or in Germany. If you want it, they don’t have to take a detour via Minsk, but can fly straight to Germany, “said Gretzmer of Built-on Zondak. “But we have clear rules regarding immigration. Recognized refugees or skilled workers may come. Immigrants inspired by Lukashenko do not matter. We must show the dictator in Minsk that this move will not succeed.

    During Friday’s Republican Address, Rep. Dan Meuser (R-PA) stated that business owners “feel that the federal government is working against them.” And “One perfect example is the fact that their businesses are being hit with vaccine mandates. At the same time, the Biden administration is releasing untested, unvaccinated illegals over our southern border, into our communities.” Meuser said, “Recently, I participated in the Small Business Committee’s Veterans’ Small Business Roundtable in Washington led by Ranking Member Blaine Luetkemeyer and with the participation from Leader Kevin McCarthy and Whip Steve Scalise, we all sat, spent time, and learned about the issues these veteran business owners face and how we can provide them a business environment in which they can succeed.

    Via SudOuest.fr with AFPPosted on 11/12/2021 at 6:28 pm.Updated 11/12/2021 at 7:05 pm. Since 2018, an increase in the number of migrants crossing in small boats facing increasing locks at the port of Gallagher and the Euro Tunnel has sparked tensions between London and Paris. The French Interior Ministry on Friday ruled that comments from London criticizing the French administration for shortcuts to illegal immigrants to Britain were “unacceptable”. “It is unacceptable to be accused of instrumentalizing immigrants and forgiving the actions of criminal groups, while our forces are mobilized daily to save lives. It is not challenging to instruct this matter for domestic policy purposes,” the home ministry said. He argued that the “failure rate” of crossings was “at the highest level of 60% since the beginning of the year (compared to 56% in 2020).” His British envoy described the number of illegal crossings of the channel, which reached more than a thousand new records on Thursday alone, as “unacceptable”. In 2021 3 people died and 4 are missing Three new immigrants went missing on Friday On the channel...
    A group of black farmers in the Mississippi Delta filed a federal lawsuit alleging that immigrants were illegally paid at a higher rate to replace them at their jobs after the black farmers spent years training them. Richard Strong and five other farm workers allege in a lawsuit that their bosses flew in white immigrants from South Africa to work under the guidance of the black American workers tending the fields in Mississippi, only to turn around and replace the black workers years later. Strong said the immigrant workers were being drawn to the United States on H-2A visas for wages of up to $11 per hour, more than the $7.25 per hour the black workers were making. Black farmworkers in Mississippi lost their jobs to white South Africans brought to work in the cotton fields. In interviews and in a lawsuit, the workers said they had trained their replacements, who were paid more.

    President Joe Biden has swelled the number of legal immigrants securing naturalized American citizenship, allowing them to vote in future elections, new United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) data shows. The data, shared with CNN, reveals that Biden’s efforts to boost naturalization rates ahead of the 2022 midterm elections and 2024 presidential election have worked. From October 1, 2020 to September 30, about 855,000 legal immigrants became naturalized American citizens — the highest annual number of legal immigrants getting naturalized in more than a decade. Put another way, more than 2,300 legal immigrants were naturalized every day over the last Fiscal Year. Compare that to Fiscal Year 2020, when about 625,400 legal immigrants were naturalized. In Fiscal Year 2019, about 844,000 legal immigrants were naturalized and the year before then, in Fiscal Year 2018, nearly 762,000 were naturalized. The last time naturalization rates were this high was in Fiscal Year 2008 when more than a million legal immigrants became naturalized American citizens. Demographic data for newly naturalized American citizens are not yet available, but data from prior years shows...
    Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said Wednesday he would send illegal immigrants to Delaware if President Joe Biden didn’t secure the southern border. DeSantis was responding to a question about secret “migrant flights” sent to Florida from areas near the southern border. White House press secretary Jen Psaki previously said Oct. 19 it should be “no surprise” to Americans that the Biden administration is flying migrants to Florida and New York from the southern border.

    Two Arizona men are facing charges after police said a traffic stop in Pennsylvania resulted in the discovery of a large amount of cash related to illegal immigrant trafficking. Erik Guzman, 26, and Martinez Hernandez Gerado, 30, both of Phoenix, were arrested following the incident in Bethel Township (Berks County) around 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, according to Pennsylvania State Police. Troopers with PSP Jonestown saw a 2008 Nissan Armada driving with a temporary Arizona license plate, state police said. They observed "numerous signs of criminal activity," and the driver agreed to a search of the vehicle, according to state police. The search yielded a "bulk" of cash, state police said. The men admitted to receiving the cash in exchange for trafficking illegal immigrants from Arizona to northern states, according to state police. Both men were charged with dealing in proceeds of unlawful activities and transported to Reading central processing. The investigation is ongoing.
    President Joe Biden’s “Build Back Better Act,” a filibuster-proof $1.75 trillion budget reconciliation package, would give $800 million worth of cash payments to hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens who were recently released into the United States interior, a new analysis states. As Breitbart News previously reported, the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) analyzed the cost to American taxpayers if Biden’s expanded Child Tax Credit for illegal aliens was extended for at least another year as part of the reconciliation package. Initially, the CIS analysis found that the cost to provide the tax credits to illegal aliens with children would cost about $80 billion over the course of a decade, or about $8 billion every year. CIS Director of Research Steven Camarota now writes that the cost to taxpayers will be even more because the roughly 500,000 to 600,000 illegal aliens released into the U.S. interior this year would be eligible to receive $800 million in cash payments as a result of the tax credits. Camarota writes: In an October analysis, we estimated that illegal immigrants would receive $8.2 billion...
    A Customs and Border Patrol agent closes the door after a group of migrant women are loaded into a transport, after being apprehended near the border between Mexico and the United States in Del Rio, Texas, on May 16, 2021. The Biden administration this past summer issued a policy limiting the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention of pregnant individuals. Now, a group of Senate Democrats is calling on Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Sec Alejandro Mayorkas to issue similar guidelines within the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency. “Such a policy is vital to ensuring the dignity and health of these individuals and their newborn children, particularly during a continued global pandemic,” legislators tell Mayorkas. They note the 2020 case of one pregnant asylum-seeker forced to give birth at a border station after officials refused to take her to a hospital. “After Border Patrol arrested her, she was sent to the Chula Vista Border Patrol station where she was forced to give birth standing up, delivering the baby into her pants, while holding onto the edge of a garbage can for support,” the 11...
    "Alessandra Mondolfi (L) and Rev. Willie Allen-Faiella join with other activists and protesters including the group Never Again Action as they protest outside the headquarters of the private prison company Geo Group on August 12, 2019 in Boca Raton, Florida." A court late last month said GEO Group had to pay detained immigrants the minimum wage (or higher) for their forced labor at the Northwest Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Processing Center (NWIPC) in Washington state. The private prison profiteer had been forcing them to labor for $1 a day under a so-called voluntary program. The court also ruled that the company owed more than $23 million in unpaid wages and damages. But the Associated Press (AP) now reports that “rather than pay the detainees minimum wage,” the multi-billion dollar company has instead “suspended the Voluntary Work Program while it appeals.” Immigrants detained at NWIPC had been forced to cook, clean, and maintain the facility under the forced program. But because GEO Group suspended the program, none of that’s getting done, detained immigrants told the AP. “It got really gross—nobody cleaned anything,” Ivan Sanchez said in the report. “We pick...
    Democrats added a provision to the reconciliation bill that would expand humanitarian parole to cover illegal immigrants already living in the U.S., according to the legislation. Congressional Democrats previously tried to pass amnesty through the Build Back Better Act and by amending the registry date in the Immigration and Nationality Act so illegal immigrants can apply for green cards, according to the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS). Expanding parole under the reconciliation package is the Democrats’ third attempt at passing an amnesty provision for millions of illegal immigrants living in the U.S. “Parole is normally a status given to aliens seeking entry into the United States,” CIS Resident Fellow in Law and Policy Andrew Arthur told the DCNF on Friday. “This parole, however, is for aliens who are currently in the United States.” BREAKING: House Rules Committee adopts text of #BuildBackBetter reconciliation bill, including immigration language providing work permits and deportation protection that will provide relief for millions of families.

    President Joe Biden has already made clear that reports of $450,000 settlements are 'garbage.' Several days after President Joe Biden denied a report that his administration would give large payments to families separated at the U.S.-Mexico border under former President Donald Trump, congressional Republicans are still lying about it. "As inflation soars to record highs, Biden wants to pay those who broke the law and entered our country illegally $450,000 APIECE," tweeted Florida Rep. Scott Franklin on Tuesday. "All with your tax dollars! The Radical Left wants Americans to lower their expectations while giving criminals a huge payday." On Oct. 28, the Wall Street Journal reported that the Department of Justice was negotiating a settlement with hundreds of families who were victims of Trump's immigration policies. The story cited unnamed "people familiar with the matter" to suggest some families might receive up to $450,000 per person in compensation for the previous administration's misdeeds and the psychological and physical damage they caused. Republicans and right-wing media seized on the report, dishonestly blaming...

    Haitian community leaders, immigrant community members, and their supporters gather at the Newark Immigration and Customs Enforcement field office to demand that President Biden's administration stop deportations and restore the right to asylum on Oct. 22, 2021 in Newark, New Jersey. When detained immigrants are able to access legal help and gain representation, they are up to 10 times more likely to be able to stay in the U.S., the Vera Institute of Justice said earlier this year. “Lawyers make a big difference.” Maybe that’s one reason why Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials have consistently set up roadblocks that make just trying to get a lawyer on the phone outright impossible. “As described in a letter sent today by the American Immigration Council, the ACLU, and 88 legal service provider organizations to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, ICE detention facilities have systematically restricted the most basic modes of communication that detained people need to connect with their lawyers and the rest of the outside world, including phones, mail, and email access,” American Immigration Council staff attorney Emma Winger and ACLU National Prison...
    The White House expressed disbelief Thursday when asked why they were not offering legal immigrants money for coming into the country, after they confirmed the administration was considering payouts to illegal immigrants who were separated by former President Donald Trump’s “zero tolerance” enforcement policy. Karine Jean-Pierre appeared confused, ultimately punting the question to the Department of Justice regarding the concept of payouts to illegal immigrants: Peter Doocy: “There is a long line to get in this country legally, is there any kind of discussion about giving people who are coming here the right way money?” Jean-Pierre: “Why would we be giving people who are coming here the right way money?” Doocy: “Why are you giving people who came here the wrong way money?” The White House continues struggling with their messaging in response to reports that the Biden administration was considering payouts of $450,000 to individuals who came into the country illegally and were subject to Trump’s strict enforcement policy. On Thursday, the White House confirmed that President Joe Biden was “perfectly comfortable” with the idea of payouts to illegal...
    Former Immigration and Customs Enforcement Acting Director Tom Homan said Friday that compensating illegal immigrant families for being separated “sends a terrible message” about the federal government’s priorities. “It sends a terrible message … Now you can cross the border illegally — bring some fentanyl with you — if you have a child with you, you won’t be prosecuted, we won’t separate you.” Homan said he has been talking to “a lot of angel moms and dads … who are in tears. They’re either really mad or really sad.” WATCH:   “How about the tens of thousands of angel moms that were separated from their children, forever, because their children were killed by someone in this country illegally?

    Representative Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) slammed the Biden administration for a reported proposal to pay reparations to illegal immigrants who were separated from their families after illegally crossing the border during an appearance on Thursday’s broadcast of FNC’s “The Story.” He also questioned the so-called Build Back Better agenda, vaccine mandates and tax breaks for blue states. He claimed that was “why Virginia went the way it did.” “Well, they’re all over the place, whether it’s about the Build Back Better agenda or about what they’re doing with illegal immigration at the border,” Crenshaw said. “So it should be obvious to everybody there, they’re doing nothing. The only actions they’ve taken so far to secure our border are against Border Patrol agents who are trying to block people from coming across, you know, doing their jobs. So that’s the only thing they’ve done so far.” “But they’re also taking more action,” he continued. “They want to pay the people $450,000. Now, to put this into context, it’s worth noting that if your family member who’s serving in our military gets killed...
    Former Border Patrol czar Rodney Scott called the Biden administration's proposed $450,000 payments to illegal immigrants who were separated from their family at the southern border during former President Trump's administration "ludicrous" Thursday on "Fox News Primetime." Such a sum could exceed that made to Gold Star families and families of 9/11 victims. "This is ludicrous," he said. "Anybody could file a lawsuit, but there's no reason the federal government should be settling this lawsuit."
