Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) blasted President Biden and his administration for failing to lead amid crisis after crisis. First, Biden failed at the border, allowing record numbers of migrants to swarm the border. Now, Biden’s disappointed allies in Afghanistan with his hasty withdrawal. Biggs appeared on the Sara Carter Show Friday to discuss Biden’s failures at length.

Just this July, over 200,000 migrants entered the country via the southern border. As a result, as many as 31 border patrol agents have died of COVID-19-related illnesses, according to Biggs. So, the Arizona lawmaker is trying to impeach Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

Yet, “Republicans that won’t sign on to impeach Secretary Mayorkas,” Biggs told host Sara Carter. “What he has done is violated the law. He’s violated the Constitution. He’s violated his oath of office.” Biggs claims that many are too afraid to go against Speaker Nancy Pelosi, so they let Mayorkas off the hook.

But Biggs’ calls for resignation don’t stop with Mayorkas. “Biden should resign, Harris should resign,” Biggs said. “The Secretary of Defense, that guy is such such a weenie he needs to go, he definitely needs to go.”

Meanwhile, Biden’s White House focuses on the inconsequential. “This administration is more interested in weight and waving the gay pride flag about the US Embassy in Kabul, and making sure that everybody’s masked up, than they are about our enemies, about inflation,” Biggs said.

According to attorney Liam Schwartz, head of the Labor and Corporate Immigration Department at the Tel Aviv-based law firm of Goldfarb, Seligman, a new policy by the U.S. Immigration Authority aimed at Israelis seeks detailed explanations about military service, potentially to identify involvement in war crimes or other serious offenses.

“The U.S. Immigration Authority’s new policy is extremely worrisome,” Schwartz said. “Its impact on Israelis could be broad, affecting areas such as relocation for work, academic studies, and family reunification.”

This policy extends beyond green card applications. Israelis applying for visas at U.S. embassies outside Israel may also face rigorous questioning. Y Net News discusses the case of Yuval, a senior manager at a high-tech company in Silicon Valley, who recently received a surprising letter from the U.S. Immigration Authority regarding his green card application. The letter requested detailed information about his service in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) from 2005 to 2008, raising concerns about a potential shift in U.S. immigration policy towards Israeli applicants.

The letter demanded an affidavit under oath addressing several specific questions about Yuval’s military service. These included queries about his participation in combat, command roles, guarding detainees, and the use of weapons or explosives. Yuval must provide satisfactory answers within 87 days to avoid deportation.

Yuval expressed shock at the detailed nature of the questions, noting that he had previously provided basic information about his military service when applying for his work visa two years ago. “I feel as if questions were copied from the Office of the Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court in The Hague,” he remarked.

While cooperation with U.S. authorities regarding military service is necessary for visa or green card applications, Schwartz highlighted a conflict with Israeli laws on military confidentiality. He suggested that in some cases, it might be more practical for applicants to consider leaving the U.S.
