McCarthy: Biden is the migrants’ president

Sara Carter interviewed house minority leader Kevin McCarthy on “The Sara Carter Show” podcast Thursday about the border crisis.

McCarthy sent a letter to President Joe Biden on Friday requesting a meeting to discuss the rising numbers of unaccompanied migrant children at the U.S.-Mexico border and has yet to receive a response.

“I sent him the letter asking for a meeting, no response whatsoever,” McCarthy told Carter.

According to McCarthy’s letter, 117,000 unaccompanied alien children will be crossing into the border this year.

At the height of the Obama administration’s unaccompanied minor crisis from 2013, there were over 66,000 unaccompanied minors that were accounted for that year, Carter noted.

“The worst part about this, it’s created by Biden, this is Biden’s border crisis,” McCarthy said. “Had he not reversed the actions of the last administration, we wouldn’t be here today.”

“He’s the migrants’ president, he’s encouraging this to happen,” McCarthy added.

Carter noted that the violence at the border has increased tremendously since Biden took office.

“[Border Patrol agents] actually said the policies that were put in place during the Trump administration mitigated a lot of this of this disaster, especially in the last year of President Trump in office, they noticed a huge decrease because people knew they weren’t going to get away with it,” Carter said.

“It’s unbelievable how quickly the border has become a crisis because of the new administration,” McCarthy said. “100,000 is an unbelievable number, just in that first month. What do we think it’s going to be three months from now?”

McCarthy will be traveling to the border with a committee and is hoping President Biden will meet with him when he returns to discuss solutions to the crisis.

“I hope the President will meet with us when we come back. Because we have solutions for the problems. And we want to make sure our borders secure,” McCarthy told Carter.

McCarthy is urging his fellow Americans to speak up and take action against the new administration’s rules.

“Don’t stay quiet. Speak up right now,” McCarthy said. “Follow what you’re doing and you get educated on it. Call the White House. Call the speaker. Tell them you want action taken on this. You don’t want it to continue to be the way it is.”

“There is a crisis at the border, no matter what the Biden administration is trying to say to you, they are not telling you, the American people, the truth. They’re just not telling you the truth,” Carter said.

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.”
