2022/02/21--https //www newsmax com/newsfront/migrants-southern-border-biden- january/2022/02/17/id/1057341/ Excerpt: A new court document filed in Texas v. Biden reveals that of the 153,941 people who attempted to enter the United States illegally at the southern border in January, nearly 30% were released into the country. Of the approximately 75,000 migrants who were taken into custody, roughly 46,000 were released into the U.S. on parole or after being placed in immigration court proceedings. Rather than return people to Mexico, federal law enforcement released tens of thousands of migrants into the U.S., despite a pandemic public health protocol requiring they be returned to Mexico and a mandate that noncitizens entering the U.S. at ports of entry be fully vaccinated, the Washington Examiner reported.

When he was the police chief in Tucson, Arizona, he rejected federal grants to collaborate on border security with the agency he now leads and kept a distance from Border Patrol leaders in a region where thousands of agents are assigned. …Unsurprisingly for anyone who’s been tracking migration along the United States’ southern border, the recent showdown happened in Yuma, Arizona, where encounters with migrants illegally crossing into the country from Mexico jumped more than 20-fold in December from a year earlier. …“There’s a lot of frustration,” said Rafael Rivera, president o f the National Border Patrol Council Local 2595, a union that represents agents in the patrol’s Yuma sector, which has seen a huge increase in such migrants. “They feel like there’s no consequences, that we have an open border.” Townhall 2022/02/21 Crisis: More Migrants Released into U.S. Last Month Than Were Deported In All of Fiscal Year 2021 https //townhall com/tipsheet/guybenson/2022/02/21/border-crisis-january-2022-encounters-nearly- doubled-over-january-2021-levels-n2603540 Washington Examiner 2022/02/18 Border Patrol agents warned of assassination attempts by Mexican cartels.

The lawsuit, which includes seven other states, claims the Biden Administration’s Central American Minors Refugee and Parole Program is unconstitutional and an abuse of power. The program allows for certain undocumented individuals who are in the U.S. the ability to secure protected status. Then, they can petition the government to bring in extended family members from Honduras, El Salvador or Guatemala.

Biden thanked Magnus for “nearly forty years of service,” according to a statement from White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, and added that he “wishes him well.” Magnus had been asked to resign by Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas this week, according to two sources familiar with the matter. He submitted his resignation to Biden on Saturday, which is effective immediately. Magnus has been criticized internally for being out of touch with the agency and publicly for the handling of the US-Mexico border. During his tenure, officials have told CNN they believed Magnus seemed disengaged and wasn’t joining some internal meetings at a critical time for the agency. The resignation comes after Magnus had said in a statement to the Los Angeles Times on Friday that he planned to stay at the agency. https //www cnn com/2022/11/12/politics/cbp-magnus-resignation-dhs- mayorkas/index.html#:~:text=US%20Border%20Patrol%2C%20a%20divisi on%20of%20Customs%20and,This%20story%20has%20been%20updated %20with%20additional%20developments CBP 2022/11/14 CBP Releases October 2022 Monthly Operational Update In October 2022 alone, CBP processed more than 2.9 million entry summaries valued at more than $365 billion, identifying estimated duties of nearly $7.9 billion to be collected by the U.S. government.
