In a decisive move, House Republicans led by Speaker Mike Johnson are set to vote on Wednesday to formalize the impeachment inquiry into President Biden. Speaking at a House Republican Conference press conference, Johnson emphasized the commitment to the “rule of law” and countered comparisons with past Democratic-led impeachment efforts, labeling them as “snap” and “sham” proceedings against former President Trump.

Fox News’ Chad Pergram pressed Johnson on the timing, questioning if there’s an expectation to bring an impeachment vote in the spring, just ahead of the 2024 presidential election. Johnson cited the GOP’s frustration, alleging obstruction from the Biden administration, preventing witnesses and documents from coming forward in investigations into Biden and his son Hunter’s business dealings.

According to reports from Fox News, the scheduled vote aims to grant the House Judiciary, Oversight, and Ways and Means committees the authority to continue probing the Biden family. House Majority Whip Tom Emmer emphasized that the Biden administration has hindered their investigations, citing the Justice Department’s refusal to allow attorneys to testify and the National Archives withholding documents.

Johnson defended the process, distinguishing it from previous Democratic actions, stating, “We’re not making a political decision. It’s not. It’s a legal decision.” Responding to questions about potential absolution months before the election, he held firm, saying, “We’re following the law, and we are the rule of law team.” Johnson highlighted the importance of due process, stating, “If you follow the Constitution and you do the right thing, you cannot rush it. You have to follow the facts.”

As the House prepares for this critical vote, the GOP remains steadfast in its pursuit of truth and transparency, navigating a path they believe aligns with constitutional responsibilities. The outcome remains uncertain, leaving the specter of potential impeachment hanging over the Biden administration as the nation watches closely.

Canadian-U.S. border illegal crossings up 240% over previous year

The vulnerability of the northern border of the United States is being weaponized in the war on illegal migration. 2023 saw a 240% increase of individuals apprehended from just one year prior. Not only is the border with Canada significantly longer than its border with Mexico, but its ports of entry are often understaffed while the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is forced to prioritize the southern surge.

According to recent data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection, in 2023 authorities halted over 12,000 migrants attempting illegal crossings at the Canadian border. The number is a 240% increase from the preceding year when 3,579 individuals were apprehended.

ADN America reports that approximately 70% of the illegal crossings took place along a 295-mile stretch along the northern New York, Vermont, and New Hampshire border called the Swanton Sector.

Chief patrol agent for the sector, Robert Garcia, posted on social media that the 3,100 individuals apprehended were from 55 different countries. 

Garcia wrote “the record-breaking surge of illegal entries from Canada continues in Swanton Sector” and he specifically mentioned that the arrest of 10 Bangladeshi citizens was prompted by a citizen’s report in Champlain, New York.

Surprisingly, ADN reports:

A significant number of those engaging in illegal crossings are Mexicans who exploit the opportunity to fly to Canada without a visa, also avoiding the presence of cartels in their home countries.

Experts suggest that migrants can purchase a $350 one-way plane ticket from Mexico City or Cancun to Montreal or Toronto. This route is perceived as offering a lower likelihood of being turned away compared to those crossing the southern border.
