The GOP members of the House Judiciary Committee released a lengthy report Monday outlining numerous ongoing changes being made by Biden administration to unravel Trump immigration laws and policies. Republican lawmakers said Biden’s policies, including the 9 executive orders he’s issued on immigration, is putting American lives in danger.

The Republican report, authored by Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, Ranking Member Committee on the Judiciary and Rep. Tom McClintock, R- CA, Ranking Member Subcommittee on Immigration and Citizenship, referenced numerous news reports, interviews, as well as Government Accountability Reports to back their arguments against the Biden’s lax border and immigration policies.

“Biden’s immigration policies will rehash the failed policies of the Obama-Biden Administration and will only make Americans less safe,” the report states. “These radical ideas will not only affect border communities, but they will also lead to the release of dangerous criminal aliens into neighborhoods around the country.”

Report Lays Out Biden’s plans

  • Biden “has proposed ending or rolling back President Trump’s immigration successes, pledged to reinstitute “catch and release,” and has implemented a 100-day”
  • The Biden Admin has “promised to reverse Trump Administration funding restrictions on far-left sanctuary jurisdictions that ignore federal immigration law and refuse to cooperate with immigration authorities.”
  • Legislation is being proposed “to grant amnesty to the millions of illegal immigrants currently in the United States. This proposal would repeat the mistakes of the 1986 amnesty, which only made illegal immigration worse by encouraging more people to come into the country illegally.”
  • Biden has “pledged to undo the Trump Administration’s public charge regulation, which assesses an alien’s likelihood of needing U.S. taxpayer-funded benefits upon arrival in the U.S.

The congressional members noted that “Biden’s radical approach to immigration policy ignores the hard truths of the current state of migration. With an open borders policy, criminals are incentivized to cross the border illegally. In light of recent activist court rulings, criminal aliens are incentivized to bring children with them because they know immigration authorities must release them.”

Several Border Patrol officials who recently spoke to me about the massive changes sweeping across the federal government due to changes in immigration policy under the Biden administration agree with Jordan and McClintock.

They, along with others I’ve interviewed in Immigration and Customs Enforcement, stress that the lax laws do little to benefit the immigrants or the American people, “instead it gives incentives to drug cartels and human traffickers” to continue their criminal and dangerous behavior.

The report is an excellent outline of how dangerous this situation really is and it can be read in full here.

Biden’s Poor Polling and Harris’ Low Electability Rating Could Have Democrats Considering ‘Nuclear Option’

Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway

With polls consistently showing a poor approval rating for President Joe Biden at below 40 percent, and a recent poll put Kamala Harris’ electability at only 28 percent, Democrats are in full panic mode.

“Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway. Operatives are preparing for the possibility of a contested presidential primary in which other would-be nominees take on Ms. Harris, but that could be damaging for the party” reports the Telegraph.

Therefore, Democrats are allegedly whispering about a potential “nuclear option” that would call for current Vice President Harris to be nominated to the Supreme Court. The Telegraph writes that “while the scenario is highly improbable, and perhaps a reflection of a Washington rumor mill in overdrive, the fact it has come up at all shows the depths of the predicament the Biden administration currently finds itself in, amid rising inflation, a stalled domestic agenda, and foreign policy disasters.”

The theory in question would call for President Biden to nominate Harris to the Supreme Court in the event a seat opens in the next three years during his administration. Biden could then use “Section 2 of the 25thAmendment to nominate a more popular vice president”, adds the Telegraph.

Under Section 1 of the 25th Amendment, that new vice president could assume the presidency if Biden were to step down while president. They would then become the Democratic nominee in the 2024 presidential election. That same individual could also be the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2024 if Biden chooses not to run for re-election.

One piece of information that is wetting Democrats’ whistle is that current Supreme Court Justice Breyer has said he does not “want to stay on the Supreme Court until I die.”

The Telegraph notes that “the discussion over potential successors to Mr. Biden is highly unusual less than a year into an administration.”
