On Tuesday, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich (R) argued that the Biden administration is “essentially incentiviz[ing] people to break the law and come here” regarding the recent surge of migrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border and President Joe Biden‘s immigration policy changes, during Tuesday’s episode of “The Sara Carter Show” podcast.
Joining host Sara Carter, the border-state attorney general discussed his office’s two immigration-related lawsuits against the Biden administration, as well as the deteriorating situation at the southern border and its knock-on effects. Carter herself had just returned from a trip to the border, where she had the opportunity to interview various migrants crossing it, including unaccompanied children.

Describing his first and “foremost” lawsuit, Brnovich, who has served as his state’s attorney general since 2015, cited a Biden policy “that basically or essentially stopped deportations.”
“As a result of that pause [on deportations], you literally have people in this country that are supposed to be deported, that are still here,” said the attorney general, whose mother immigrated from modern-day Montenegro during the communist regime. “So there are approximately 1—1.2 million people that right now—right now, in this country—have deportation orders, that are supposed to be deported out of the United States, and are not being deported because of the Biden administration.”
Later, Brnovich went on to detail his second lawsuit, which he said pertains to “what I call what the Biden administration is doing to essentially incentivize people to break the law and come here”.
That is, he said, “by basically not defending—at the U.S. Supreme Court—a case that involves the public charge rule, which basically, […] it’s a law that’s been on the book for 100 years.”
“President Trump created […] restrictions on who can get a green card, who can get citizenship based on their ability to support themselves or their sponsor’s ability to support themselves,” Brnovich continued, calling it a “common-sense measure”.
Saying that “the Biden administration, even though they won at one of the appellate courts, has abandoned that appeal,” the Arizona Republican explained that “we’re trying to step in, and we’re saying this rule is constitutional, and that the Biden administration should be defending it at the Supreme Court.”
“And if they’re not going to defend it,” Brnovich added, “then I will defend it at the Supreme Court, just as I recently did with Arizona’s election laws…”

NYC Mayor Adams’ budget cuts slash total number of police and education funds
“No city should be left to handle a national humanitarian crisis largely on its own, and without the significant and timely support we need from Washington, D.C., today’s budget will only be the beginning,” said New York City Democratic Mayor Eric Adams about his decision to make budget cuts as a result of the overwhelming migrant crisis.
However, those who will suffer from budget cuts to the city’s services to offset the cost of dealing with the ever-increasing number of migrants are those that are in place to make the city better.
“The cuts will see police freeze hiring and bring the total number of police officers below 30,000. It would further slash the education budget by $1 billion over two years and affect a litany of other agencies” reports Just The News.
Albeit, Adams admitted: “In all my time in government, this is probably one of the most painful exercises I’ve gone through.” More than 110,000 migrants have arrived in New York City over the past year, including roughly 13,000 sent from Texas by GOP Governor Greg Abbott as part of his ongoing bussing plan to send new arrivals to the U.S. to sanctuary cities.
However, similar to other leaders of sanctuary cities, Adams is unwilling to put his money where his mouth is. In September, Adams warned that the crisis would “destroy New York City” and begged the federal government to pay for his mess.
“I’m gonna tell you something, New Yorkers, never in my life have I had a problem that I didn’t see an ending to. I don’t see an ending to this,” Adams said at the time. “The federal government needs to do its job. We need the federal government, the Congress members, the Senate and the president to do their job: close the borders,” said Adams’ advisor Ingrid Lewis Martin insisted in early October. “And until you close the borders, you need to come on with a full-on decompression strategy where you can take all of our migrants and move them through our 50 states.”
