11 Migrants Have Qualified For Asylum Under Remain In Mexico Program: Report
Migrants, most of them asylum seekers sent back to Mexico from the U.S. under the “Remain in Mexico” program officially named Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), wait in line to receive bottles of drinking water by a makeshift encampment in Matamoros, Tamaulipas, Mexico, Oct. 28, 2019.
Of the nearly 50,000 who were under the Remain in Mexico Program in September, just 11 individuals were granted asylum into the U.S., The San Diego Union-Tribune reported.
Remain in Mexico, also known as Migrant Protection Protocols, requires asylum seekers to wait in Mexico while their claims are processed in the U.S. immigration court system.
Democrats have called for the defunding of Remain in Mexico, but the Department of Homeland Security has touted the program as vital to controlling the border crisis. read more
The Daily Caller reports that Jim Jordan and other Republicans on the House Oversight Committee are demanding an explanation as to why
Congressional democrats were taking trips to Mexico, “after reports were released that said a Democrat was ‘coaching’ migrants on how to break the law to illegally enter the country.”
“The National Border Patrol Council’s El Paso chapter and several Customs and Border Protection personnel told the Washington Examiner aides to Rep. Veronica Escobar, who took over 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke’s district, and the local Catholic diocese have interviewed thousands of migrants in Juarez over the past few weeks to find cases where [they claim] Department of Homeland Security officials may have wrongly returned people.”
“This all comes after a member of Texas Democratic Rep. Veronica Escobar’s staff reportedly coached migrants in detention facilities on how to get around immigration laws, reportedly telling them to act like they cannot speak Spanish when caught trying to enter the U.S.” read more
The question is…will he?
from Conservative Review:
The American taxpayer is ALWAYS the Forgotten Man — especially in the immigration fight
The president will never have as much leverage or a better impetus for a budget fight than he does now. Will he finally demand action and use his veto for leverage?
On December 8, the government will face its final budget deadline with Republicans in control of the trifecta of government. A budget, at its core, is an expression of our values. There is no greater value more relevant to this budget deadline than protecting the taxpayers from the high cost of illegal aliens invading our border, draining our schools and communities, and flooding us with the most deadly drugs and gangs that help fund international terrorism. It’s high time for Trump to finally take his case to the American people in dramatic fashion and threaten to veto any bill that fails to address the border crisis, not just from the standpoint of funding the border wall, but also ending the invasion permanently. read more

FEINSTEIN URGED OBAMA TO USE PRESIDENTIAL POWER TO LIMIT IMMIGRATION: ‘NO LEGISLATION NECESSARY’
- Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California encouraged then-President Barack Obama to use broad presidential powers to tighten immigration rules in response to a wave of migration from Central America in 2014.
- In a letter to Obama, Feinstein cited the same statutory authority that President Donald Trump invoked to make illegal border-crossers ineligible for asylum.
- That authority comes from Section 212(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, which allows the president to “impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.”
Democratic California Sen. Dianne Feinstein encouraged then-President Barack Obama to use the “very broad power” granted to him by Congress to limit immigration in any way he saw fit, according to a letter obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation. read more

Progressive socialists have gone so far as the defend MS-13 and working with fellow leftists and RINO Republicans to push for open borders – to fight for sanctuary cities to protect the criminals within the city limits and allow these same criminals back on the streets to further harm the citizens of this country.
President Trump has rightfully enforced “zero tolerance” leading to the leftists and celebrities, who no one listens to, loudly declare a “holocaust.” There has been legislation proposed that would solve family separation, but the leftists under the auspices of Chuck Schumer rejected this proposal out of hand. Schumer, along with other far leftist socialists want to see the return of “catch and release” against the wishes of the majority of American taxpayers.
Furthering their Alinsky style tactics, the leftists are moving towards confrontation. Peter Fonda has threatened Barron, the Presidents son. Fonda wants to put him in a cage with pedophiles and let him be raped. This type of Morality is rationalized by the claim that all conservatives are evil, and want to do as much damage as possible to “people of color.” read more

I couldn’t help noticing the grateful immigrants, who are so thankful to leave their war-torn, murderous and oppressive nations. These patriots in waiting set atop the border fence, laughing and waving the American flag out of respect and reverence for their new home.
What? That’s not what happened? Huh. Instead these invaders were waving every flag but ours – the flags of the war-torn hell holes like Honduras they claim to wish to escape. These are not refugees, but invaders.
Now some might say – how dare I call them invaders? Well what would you call them? What do hostile forces do after they’ve sacked a town, or territory? Oh that’s right. They announce to the world that this is conquered territory by taking down the enemies flag and waving theirs around in triumph before running it up the flagpole. Given the opportunity and the attitude, I don’t doubt that at least some of these “migrants” would surely do just that – take down the American flag and replace it with the Honduran flag.
Some would ask why the migrants don’t just seek asylum in Mexico.
The answer was established almost a month ago – that this caravan march to the border is not about, and was never about asylum, refugees, or even making to our border – at least not for the organizers. Organizers? You mean this caravan march was not spontaneous? read more
