Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) announced Wednesday that she will introduce a bill to censure President Biden “for his complete dereliction of duty on our nation’s border crisis.”

She is joined by 23 colleagues in the House. They include Reps. Andy Biggs (R-AZ), Dan Bishop (R-NC), Madison Cawthorn (R-NC), Jeff Duncan (R-SC), Pat Fallon (R-TX), Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Bob Good (R-VA), Paul Gosar (R-AZ), Morgan Griffith (R-VA), Diana Harshbarger (R-TN), Jody Hice (R-GA), Ronny Jackson (R-TX), Thomas Massie (R-KY), Alex Mooney (R-WV), Barry Moore (R-AL), Troy Nehls (R-TX), Ralph Norman (R-SC), Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), Bill Posey (R-FL), Lance Gooden (R-TX), Chip Roy (R-TX), and Randy Weber (R-TX).

These GOP lawmakers are also calling for the removal of Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. Instead, they would like to see him replaced “with leadership that will prioritize the security of the United States and faithfully enforce the laws enacted by Congress.”

“My censure bill holds President Biden accountable for his actions—or lack thereof—at the border,” Boebert said during a press conference. “Biden has refused to enforce the laws securing our border, he has refused to visit our border, his border czar Kamala has refused to visit the border, and his Secretary of Homeland Security is lying to the American people by saying that our border is closed.”

Since Boebert made the announcement, the White House announced that Vice President Harris will visit the border this Friday. Mayorkas will accompany her to El Paso, Texas.

In fact, Biden’s policy has stirred up historic immigration data. As Boebert says, “the numbers speak for themselves.” The last two months in particular have seen a massive increase of migrants at the border.

Michigan asks residents to house migrants, enroll children in school and help adults find employment

Michigan is asking its residents to help with the mess its leadership created and house migrants in their own homes. The state Department of Labor and Economic Development said volunteers who participate must commit for at least 90 days as part of the refugee support program.

In addition to opening up their homes, sponsors are expected to support newly arrived refugees by greeting them at the airport, securing and preparing initial housing, enrolling children in school and helping adults find employment.

“Programs like the Welcome Corps advance the Office of Global Michigan’s mission to make Michigan the home for opportunity for our immigrant, refugee and ethnic communities,” said Poppy Hernandez, Global Michigan Director and Michigan’s Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer. “Expanded refugee resettlement pathways empower more Michiganders to support our state’s growing refugee population and build a more welcoming and inclusive Michigan for all.”

The migrants will come from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua and Venezuela, all points of origin where many have been hoping to apply for asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Fox News reports “cities like New York and Chicago have also dealt with issues related to migrants committing crimes, as well as pushback from residents who have voiced anger and concern over the influx. Migrant shelters in those cities have largely been full, forcing officials to come up with ways to safely house the migrants.”

Last year, Massachusetts officials asked residents to open their doors as migrant shelters were full at the time. “Most importantly, if you have an extra room or suite in your home, please consider hosting a family. Housing and shelter is our most pressing need and become a sponsor family,” said Massachusetts Lt. Governor Kim Driscoll.
