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…”

Migrants refuse to go to Brooklyn cruise terminal shelter, return to Manhattan hotel

It’s the details bleeding heart liberals fail to think about. Take New York City as a perfect example where the liberal city cannot welcome hundreds of thousands of migrants with open arms as it says the rest of the country should do.

Last week saracarter.com reported on how the Big Apple was turning a Brooklyn Cruise ship terminal into shelter for migrant families flooding into the city. That plan has already backfired.

More than 50 migrants camped outside the Watson Hotel in Manhattan in protest against the cruise terminal. On Sunday night over a dozen police officers responded to the hotel to provide crowd control.

One activist told the New York Post that the migrants feel the shelter is “not livable” after several migrants went to the Terminal shelter over the weekend but promptly returned to the hotel.

The migrants preferred to sleep outside the hotel saying that the shelter had no heat, privacy or blankets.

The migrants hung a banner demanding permanent free housing and to “cancel rent.”

A spokesperson for Mayor Eric Adams said the city continues to “surpass our moral obligations” in caring for the influx of migrants.

“More than 42,000 asylum seekers have arrived in New York City since last spring and we continue to surpass our moral obligations as we provide asylum seekers with shelter, food, health care, education, and a host of other services,” spokesperson Fabien Levy told the New York Post.

“The facilities at Brooklyn Cruise Terminal will provide the same services as every other humanitarian relief center in the city, and the scheduled relocations to Brooklyn Cruise Terminal this weekend took place as planned,” Levy added. “We remain in serious need of support from both our state and federal governments.”
