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.

DOJ says FBI informant on Biden had ‘high-level’ contacts with Russian intelligence
In a memorandum filed with the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada to support Alexander Smirnov’s continued pre-trial detention, the Department of Justice(DOJ) wrote that he claimed to have had “contacts with multiple foreign intelligence agencies…[who] could resettle Smirnov outside the United States if he were released.”
Smirnov, a dual citizen of the United States and Israel, was arrested and charged on Feb. 14 with making false statements to the FBI about Biden’s connections to the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings Limited, which employed his son Hunter Biden as a member of the board with a monthly salary of $50,000 during his term as vice president.
“During his custodial interview on February 14, Smirnov admitted that officials associated with Russian intelligence were involved in passing a story about [Hunter Biden],” wrote special counsel David Weiss in the filing. “Smirnov apparently attended a separate meeting with Russian Official 1, [an] individual who controls groups that are engaged in overseas assassination efforts.”
The Daily Caller News Foundation reports that Smirnov was a confidential human source who provided information that was used to prepare a report, known as an FD-1023, about Joe Biden’s alleged connections to the Burisma business partners of Hunter Biden. That report has previously served as evidence contradictingJoe Biden’s claim that he knew nothing of his son’s business dealings; a notion at the center of an impeachment inquiry against him.
The FD-1023 detailing Smirnov’s claims was released by Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa on July 20, 2023, after it was provided to him by government whistleblowers. “[The] indictment confirms several points Senator Grassley has made repeatedly. The informant behind the FD-1023 was, indeed, a long-serving, trusted FBI source used by the agency for criminal investigations since the Obama administration. In fact, he was so trusted that the FBI provided him authorization ‘to engage in illegal activity for investigative purposes’,” a spokesperson for Grassley told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
