The website GoFund me is exposing its hypocritical ideology, and may now also face investigations. Uproar ensued after the crowdfunding platform announced it had frozen the nearly $10 million raised to support the “Freedom Convoy” in Canada.

The company claimed it “supports peaceful protests” but law enforcement had convinced them the convoy had “become an occupation, with police reports of violence and other unlawful activity” despite no evidence or documented reports. Truckers themselves are reiterating their peaceful protest. Of course, GoFundMe had no problem in 2020 promoting the fundraising for the incredibly violent and unlawful Capitol Hill Occupied Protest (CHOP) in downtown Seattle.

On Friday GoFundMe encouraged donors to submit a refund form, and threatened it would turn over funds to other charities. Within hours they walked back their statement saying they would refund people automatically. Florida’s Republican Governor Ron DeSantis tweeted he would “investigate” the company for fraud.

“It is a fraud for @gofundme to commandeer $9M I’m donations sent to support truckers and give it to causes of their own choosing” wrote DeSantis. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton also announced on social media he would launch a fraud investigation.

“Patriotic Texans donated to Canadian truckers’ worthy cause using GoFundMe. This BLM-backing company went woke, froze the funds, & failed to deliver Texans’ money. Today I assembled a team to investigate their potential fraud & deception. Texas donors will get Justice!” said Paxton.

    Go Woke! Go Broke!
    When will these corporate entities learn that we are NOT going to fall for their manipulative and fraudulent strategies to control our $ and the way we spend it! They should stay in their assigned lanes as purveyors of goods and service and give up on the social engineering! It won’t work! I will never use GoFundMe again! For ANYTHING! GiveSendGo is a nice alternative.Angel

20 states suing Biden administration over migrant parole program

President Joe Biden has expanded a humanitarian parole program  leading to a significant increase of migrants entering the United States illegally each month. As a result, 20 states have geared up to sue the Biden administration.

Tuesday, 20 Republican states and conservative legal group America First Legal, announced their plans to sue the White House over the legality of the administration’s parole program. The program “allows up to 30,000 migrants from Haiti, Nicaragua, Cuba, and Venezuela into the homeland each month” reports Foreign Desk News.

Reports shoot the lawsuit was filed by Texas, the America First Legal and the other states in the Southern District of Texas in hopes to block the parole program.

Foreign Desk News reports of the history:

In October, the administration announced the program for Venezuelans, allowing a limited number to fly directly into the U.S. as long as they had not entered illegally, had a sponsor already, and passed certain checks. In early January, President Biden announced that the program would expand to include Haitians, Nicaraguans, and Cubans, allowing up to 30,000 a month into the U.S.

The program also allows migrants to receive work permits and a two-year authorization to live in the U.S. and was announced alongside an expansion of Title 42 expulsions to include those nationalities.

In the lawsuit, the plaintiffs argue that the program is unlawful given the “exceptionally limited” parole power the federal government has, adding that they have up to 360,000 migrants that could be allowed into the homeland a year.

The suit’s focus is on the limits placed on parole by Congress, saying that the authority is to be used on a “case-by-case basis for urgent humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit.”

“Every state in America, especially border states like Texas, is being crushed by the impacts of illegal immigration,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said in a statement to Fox News Digital.

“The Biden open borders agenda has created a humanitarian crisis that is increasing crime and violence in our streets, overwhelming local communities, and worsening the opioid crisis. This unlawful amnesty program, which will invite hundreds of thousands of aliens into the U.S. every year, will only make this immigration crisis drastically worse.”
