Just a day after former President Trump endorsed Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) for GOP Conference Chair, Twitter temporarily suspended the account of her communications director Karoline Leavitt.

Trump publicly endorsed Stefanik on his new blog which he uses to communicate with his followers. The former president has also long been suspended from Facebook and Twitter.

Leavitt saw no credible reason for the suspension. But she took it to mean it was a suspension on her political beliefs. Just before Twitter blocked her from her account, she retweeted about an interview between Steve Bannon and her boss, and she tweeted out a link from the former president’s blog. Before her account was shut down, she followed several Republican House members and activists, but now her account shows that she’s following no accounts.

“Republicans have been screaming from the rooftops for months that if Big Tech can silence the President of the United States, they can silence YOU!,” Leavitt said in a statement to “Their suspension of my account, which they later admitted was made in ‘error,’ is another example of their tyrannical censorship, as they fundamentally believe conservatives do not belong in the public square.”

A Twitter spokesperson told this reporter that the suspension was an “error,” adding “This has been reversed, and the account has been reinstated. The account’s followers will take 24-48 hours to fully restore.”

Trump, Rep Biggs: invoking the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation will ‘be necessary’

At a recent rally in Iowa, former President Donald Trump promised that if elected again in 2024, he would invoke the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation of migrants who have illegally entered the United States. Since President Joe Biden took office in January of 2021, over 6 million people have illegally entered the country.

Republican Representative Andy Biggs from border state Arizona, which is among the states suffering the greatest consequences from the Biden administration policies, lamented that Trump’s suggestion will be “necessary.”

Speaking on the Just the News, No Noise” television show, Biggs stated “[I]t’s actually gonna have to be necessary.” Biggs then added his thoughts on how many more people will continue to cross the border under Biden: “Because by the time Trump gets back in office, you will have had over 10 million, in my opinion, over 10 million illegal aliens cross our border and come into the country, under the Biden regime.”

“And so when you start deporting people, and removing them from this country, what that does is that disincentivizes the tens of thousands of people who are coming,” Biggs went on. “And by the way, everyday down in Darién Gap, which is in Panama… over 5,000 people a day. [I] talk[ed] to one of my sources from the gap today. And I will just tell you, those people that you’ve seen come come in to Eagle Pass, over 7,000 in a three day period, most of those two weeks ago, were down crossing into the Darién Gap.”

“And those people… make their way up and they end up in the Eagle Pass [Texas], Del Rio area,” he continued. “So if you want to disincentivize them, you remove them from the country, which is why they remain in Mexico policy was so doggone effective at slowing down illegal border crossings.”
