Biden Admin lifts Trump era Title 42 which W.H. admits will create ‘influx’ of migrants

Breaking Wednesday, the Biden administration announced it will end the Title 42 border policy, which allows for immediate deportation, according to multiple reports. The Title 42 public health order “allows border agents to immediately expel illegal border crossers” reports National Review.

The Title was implemented under the Trump administration in the beginning stages of the COVID-19 pandemic. It was renewed under the Biden administration in August 2021. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention made the order to end the policy, according to people familiar with the plans.

The Wall Street Journal reviewed the draft of the new order, which states that “there is no longer a serious danger” that migrants could spread Covid in border detention facilities. The order will be lifted around late May, in order to “give the administration time to prepare for a potential rise in migrants seeking to cross the southern border illegally” writes National Review.

Reportedly officials in the Department of Homeland Security are concerned that relaxing the order will result in an even worse influx of illegal border crossings. In 2021 alone, over 2 million migrants were detained at the border, according to numbers released by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency.

That number was more than double the 2019 numbers of 921,812. Already in February 2022 agents encountered 164,973 migrants, 60% higher than February of 2021. Even White House communications director Kate Bedingfield said the administration expects to see a surge after the Title is lifted.

“We are planning for multiple contingencies, and we have every expectation that when the CDC ultimately decides it’s appropriate to lift Title 42, there will be an influx of people at the border” Bedingfield told reporters at the White House Wednesday.

    The Democrat Party’s formula is simple:
    American tax-dollars* + Open-borders** – Voter-ID = Illegal-votes = Political=power.
    * American tax-payer be damned.
    ** American security be damned.
    Crush the corrupt, anti-American Democrat Party.

    I heard someone say that we could have 1 billion foreign nationals in the U.S. by the end of the decade. Has anyone thought to provide the extra jobs? Not to worry, just sit back and watch old movies like “Escape from New York” and “Escape from L.A.”. “Escape from U.S. is coming”. AND… we will still be sending all those countries FOREIGN AID. Sounds logical to me!!!!!

GOP bill proposes extra measures to ensure noncitizens are unable to vote in federal elections

GOP members of both the U.S. House and Senate introduced a bill to add safeguards to ensure that non U.S. citizens who are already prohibited from voting in federal elections, do not do so. The bill seeks to amend the National Voter Registration Act to require documentary proof of United States citizenship to register to vote.

The Center Square reports that It would require states to obtain proof of citizenship – in person – when registering an individual to vote. Applicants would have to provide proof of citizenship when they register to vote in person, when applying for a motor vehicle license, and when applying to vote by mail. The bill lists accepted citizenship documentation and requirements for voter registration agencies.

U.S. Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, led a coalition of 49 Republicans to introduce the Safeguard American Voter Eligibility (SAVE) Act in the U.S. House. U.S. Sen. Mike Lee of Utah, with several cosponsors, introduced the same bill in the Senate.

Citing the border crisis and the greatest number of foreign nationals illegally entering the country in U.S. history, the measure’s supporters expressed alarm that instead of being deported, many are being registered to vote.

“There is currently an unprecedented and a clear and present danger to the integrity of our election system,” House Speaker Mike Johnson said. “And that is the threat of non-citizens and illegal aliens voting in our elections. In the last five and a half months or so, I’ve been to over 101 cities doing events all around the country in more than half the states. The first or second question that I’m asked in every public forum is about election security. Americans are deeply concerned about this. And it doesn’t matter where you live or whether you’re in a blue state or a red state, everyone’s concerned.”

Johnson blamed President Joe Biden and his administration’s policies for for what he described as widespread concern about election integrity.

“… we now have so many non-citizens in the country that if only one out of 100 of those voted, they would cast hundreds of thousands of votes,” the speaker added. “And since our elections are so razor thin in these days that we’re in, just a few precincts in a few states decide the makeup of Congress and who is elected to the White House. This is a dangerously high number, and it’s a great concern to millions and millions of Americans. It could obviously change the outcome of our elections, and this is not an empty threat or concern.”

It is already a federal crime for non-citizens to vote in a federal election. Despite this, Johnson said, “no current mechanism to ensure only those registering or voting are actually citizens. … If a nefarious actor wants to intervene in our elections, all they have to do is check a box on a form and sign their name. That’s it. That’s all that’s required. And there’s a very small chance that illegal would get caught [because] states do not have the election infrastructure in place to confirm what they’ve said.”

Johnson said noncitizens “can simply go to their local welfare office or the DMV and register to vote there,” adding that “states are currently prohibited from asking someone to prove that they’re a citizen when they use the federal voter registration form.”

He also gave examples of “a growing number of localities” that are “blurring the lines for non-citizens by allowing them to vote in municipal local elections.

“You might not know this, but non-citizens are voting,” he warned Americans. “Democrats have expressed a desire to turn on citizens and voters. That’s what this open border has been all about.”

Roy said the proposed SAVE Act “would thwart Democrat efforts to cement one-party rule by upholding and strengthening current law that permits only U.S. citizens to vote in Federal elections.”

Lee said the bill should “pass right away” and unanimously in both houses of Congress. “The only reason to oppose this … would be if you want noncitizens to vote.”

It also would create a new program requiring the Department of Homeland Security and Social Security Administration to share information with state registration systems. States would be required to identify noncitizens attempting to register to vote by accessing data in DHS’ Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements program and the SSA’s Social Security Number Verification Service. The information would be compared with data from state agencies that supply state identification cards or driver’s licenses.

The bill also would require states to remove non-citizens from existing voter rolls and increases federal penalties for those who register non-citizens to vote in federal elections.
