Remain-in-Mexico court ruling a win for Texas, Missouri over Biden admin

Published

on

The ruling showed the discontinuation of MPP ‘has contributed to the current border surge’

On Friday, a federal judged told the Biden admin that it needs to bring back and enforce the Trump policy Remain-in-Mexico. This came after a lawsuit from Missouri and Texas came out, and states the admin’s move to try and remove the policy did more damage, and was illegal.

The two Republican states had requested a preliminary injunction against the administration’s June first note officially ending the policy — called the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP). They stated that the ending of the policy was a violation of the Administrative Procedures Act (APA).

The ruling by Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk, states the Biden admin needs to bring back and enforce MPP, until it has been lawfully rescinded in compliance with the APA. Also, until the federal government has enough detention capacity to detail all migrants subject to mandatory detention.

That said, it notes the injunction is narrow and also states: “Nothing in this injunction requires DHS to take any immigration or removal action nor withhold its statutory discretion towards any individual thatit would not otherwise take.”

However, the court has stayed the relevance of the opinion and order for seven days for the government to appeal it.

“My office has been leading the way nationally in fighting human trafficking, and the Biden Administration’s lax border policies increase the risk for human trafficking at the border and, in turn, in Missouri,” Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt said in a statement. “Today’s massive win was crucial – re-implementing the Migrant Protection Protocols will help secure the border and fight the scourge of human trafficking.”

MPP was created and grew in 2019 by the Trump administration and aided in sending migrants back to Mexico, rather than being let go into the U.S., as they waited for a court date.

The policy, in alliance with Mexico, resulted in court tents being put up along the border in places like Laredo, Texas, where migrants could enter shortly for their hearings before returning to Mexico.

The Trump administration stated that the policy ended “catch-and-release” — by which migrants were let go into the U.S. — which it saw as a main reason for drawing migrants north. Critics said the policy was unfair and could lead to migrants being put in harms way in camps along the border.

The Biden administration vowed to remove the policy and started processing migrants enrolled in MPP into the U.S. pretty much right after entering office. In June, it officially ended the program.

Missouri and Texas sued the administration alleging that ending the policy was both illegal, and that it caused more problems at border states and states deeper in the interior by encouraging migrants and therefore growing the crisis at the southern border.

“We are hopeful for a favorable ruling because it is clear that the Biden administration didn’t consider anything relevant to how it was working or notice and comment, and obviously we have a crisis at the border now,” Schmitt told Fox News in an interview last month. “Anyone who is paying attention knows we have a 21-year high in border crossings, drug traffickers, and human traffickers have been emboldened, and that affects not just Texas but states like Missouri.”

The lawsuit stated a lot of the migrants let go would commit crimes in their states, that it end up causing an increase in human trafficking, and that it would create higher costs for the states in areas like education and healthcare.

The ruling found that the termination of MPP “has contributed to the current border surge” and that DHS counsel had conceded as much. The judge also stated the increase in border apprehensions from fewer than 80,000 in January to about 173,000 in April when the lawsuit was filed. In July, there were more than 212,000 encounters at the border.

Cruz criticizes Biden’s ‘unconstitutional’ vaccine mandate: ‘They want to change the topic from Afghanistan’

Published

Cruz calls Afghanistan the evacuation the ‘worst foreign policy catastrophe in a generation’

Senator Ted Cruz, said Sunday that President Biden’s vaccine requirement for private companies is intended to fail and being utilized only as a distraction from his mistakes made in Afghanistan.

While appearing on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” Cruz said Biden’s standard demandung businesses with hundred or more workers to require the COVID-19 vaccine or weekly testing is “illegal” and simply intended to get the Democratic president back in the media’s good side after he was broadly criticized for his sloppy military evacuation in Afghanistan.

“They want to change the topic from Afghanistan,” the senator said. “It’s why Biden issued this completely illegal and unconstitutional vaccine mandate, because he wanted to change the topic from the disaster in Afghanistan.”

“The vaccine mandate is going to be struck down in court. They know that,” he continued. “But the president is defying the law because he wanted the press to start defending him and stop talking about the disasters in Afghanistan. And he’s counting on a bunch of big businesses, in particular, forcing their employees to comply before the matter is ever adjudicated and before the order is struck down.”

Cruz proceeded to contend that each policy decision by Biden, foreign and domestic, has been driven by “pure politics.”

“When it comes to Afghanistan, Joe Biden and his administration presided over the worst foreign policy catastrophe in a generation,” he said. “They put politics in front of everything else. They abandoned Americans behind enemy lines, and it was a disaster. We were routed there, because Joe Biden surrendered.”

“He fled and left hundreds if not thousands of Americans in harm’s way and we are going to be paying the price – our nation is going to pay the price for our president’s weakness and incompetence for years to come,” he added.

Cruz also said the world is less protected because of Biden’s actions in Afghanistan, contending that America’s foes have overserved the president’s shortcoming and will not hesitate to take advantage of it, referring China for instance.

“Unfortunately, I believe the chances of a Chinese amphibious assault on Taiwan have increased tenfold in the last month,” Cruz said. “If that happens it would be utterly disastrous, but weakness invites aggression.”

“When you have a president who rolls over for everything, it only invites the bad guys to do worse and worse things,” he said.

Ten Chinese aircraft entered Taiwan’s air defense zone on Friday, the day after the democratically governed island reported a $9 billion boost to military spending to counter the danger from central China, which considers Taiwan as part of its territory.

Chants of ‘F*** Joe Biden’ at diverse vaccine mandate protest, thousands embrace at NYC freedom rally: ‘This is the power we want to send to the world’

A large number of New Yorkers spoke up against vaccine mandates on Saturday. A diverse group in New York City protested against the government’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate orders.

A diverse group walked through the streets of New York City on Saturday; some waved American, Gadsden, and LGBTQ flags. Some protestors were holding signs that read: “My body, my choice,” “Latinos against forced vaccines,” “God is with us,” and “LGBTQ people for medical freedom.”

There were moms demanding the end of mask mandates for their kids in school. There were some demanding the government to recognize natural immunity and requesting that those with past COVID-19 infection be absolved from the vaccine mandate.

The freedom rally halted in Times Square, where speakers conveyed messages against COVID-19 vaccine mandates. At one point, the ideologically coordinated group embraced one another in a sign of unity against the mandates.

“This is the power that we want to send to the world,” a speaker said.

There were chants of “Wake up New York!” and “My body, my choice!”

One highlighted speaker at the freedom rally cited President Biden, who recently said, “What more do you need to see? We’ve made vaccinations free, safe and convenient. We’ve been patient, but our patience is wearing thin. And your refusal has cost all of us.”

The speaker told the protestors, “Joe Biden, your patience is wearing thin? We lost our patience!”

The crowd responded by reciting, “F*** Joe Biden!”

This anti-Biden chant was utilized at college football stadiums recently.

On Sept. 9, Biden declared a general vaccine mandate for companies with more than a hundred workers, which will affect a hundred million Americans.

On Aug. 16, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio signed an emergency executive order demanding residents to give proof of coronavirus vaccination to enter indoor eating at restaurants, cinemas, gyms, and more.

The demonstration was just one of many “World Wide Rally For Freedom” occasions that occurred in communities around the world.

“We will push back against widespread propaganda, by producing our own media, and advancing our own narrative, instead of succumbing to the one being pushed on us. We will not accept the rampant politicization of science and medicine, and we will return these institutions to being neutral sources of information for the benefit of society, over government and corporate interests,” an official statement from the protestors read.

There were also big protests in France and Canada.

Protests in Australia became violent, and more than two hundred were apprehended in Melbourne.

Biden aides set up a ‘wall’ to protect him from unscripted occasions, book claims

The book depicts the internal White House staff members ‘ process as a ‘cocooning’ of the president

Top White House aides set up a “wall” to protect President Joe Biden from unscripted occasions and long interviews in the midst of fears of the president’s touchiness and propensity for ruining statements, as indicated by a recent book.

“Peril” by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa referred to various of episodes from the blunder inclined president in the beginning days of his administration, including a back-and-forth with a CNN journalist for which he later apologized.

“That side of Biden — his tendency to at times be testy or mangle statements — was still with him and now part of his presidency,” the book says.

Thus, various Biden associates told the journalists that Chief of Staff Ronald Klain and then-White House advisor Anita Dunn worked to keep such occurrences from happening by keeping him away from “unscripted events or long interviews.”

“They called the effect ‘the wall,’ a cocooning of the president,” they wrote.

However, the creators note that those episodes still kept showing up, regardless of that defensive air pocket.

The book says that the White House needed damage control after Biden reported he had struck a significant bipartisan infrastructure deal, but then said it was dependent on a more liberal spending bundle being passed.

It reportedly shocked Democrats, who considered them as separate, and infuriated Republicans who were unhappy about the caveat. It prompted officials working the telephones to fix the damage, and Biden giving a long statement to explain his position.

The book contains various disclosures, specifically its announcing regarding how General Mark Milley was in correspondence with the Chinese to console them about feelings of trepidation of an assault during the mayhem encompassing the Jan. 6 Capitol revolt.

The White House did not quickly respond to Fox News’ request for input.
