Washington D.C., USA: U.S. House Democrats are introducing a bill that will allocate an extra $50,000,000 of taxpayer money to provide relief programs for the skyrocketing influx of migrants coming into the United States.
According to a recent column by The National Pulse:
“The bill, H.R. 8725, was sponsored by Representative Eleanor Norton, a Democrat representing the District of Columbia, on August 16th and has since been referred to the Committee on Appropriations.”
That’s Democrats for you.
According to the bill:
“There is appropriated, out of any amounts in the Treasury not otherwise appropriated, $50,000,000, to remain available until expended, for the ‘‘Federal Emergency Management Agency—Federal Assistance’’ account, to be made available to the emergency food and shelter program for purposes of providing shelter and other services to families and individuals encountered by the Department of Homeland Security.”
As if America doesn’t already have a laundry list of problems; inflation, rising crime, infrastructure, just to name a few.
Now House Democrats want to continue freely burdening taxpayers with another giant bill.
This staggering amount isn’t the first of its kind either.
According to The National Pulse:
“The Emergency Food and Shelter Program (EFSP) has already received $280 million in funding for its operations throughout 2022. The sum was broken down into $130,000,000 for U.S. citizens and $150,000,000 for migrant families and individuals encountered by DHS.”
Under the Biden administration, the flood gates have busted wide open with migrants crossing into the open border to the south.
The problem became so overwhelming for small Texas border towns that their Governor, Greg Abbot decided to bus migrants to different parts of the country such as New York and Washington D.C.
Much of the $50 million will likely be spent on those migrants, who many already have received generous aid like healthcare.
According to the National Pulse column:
“Under the Biden White House, illegal immigration into the U.S. has skyrocketed, with many migrants attempting to enter the U.S. via the porous southern border. The $50,000,000 would likely go towards these individuals, who’ve already received taxpayer-funded healthcare and cross-country flights.”
The decision to further fund the migrants comes despite already spiking internal issues like supply chain problems, household item shortages and even critical item shortages such as baby formula.
The rate of migrants crossing into the U.S. doesn’t appear to be slowing down. In fact, it has maintained a steady rate since this time last year.
According to a recent Fox News column:
“There were 199,976 migrant encounters at the border in July. That’s lower than the 213,593 encountered in July 2021, a slight decrease from the 207,416 encountered in June 2022, and the lowest number encountered since February.”
The column continued:
“But the almost 200,000 encounters still represents a stubbornly high number of migrants hitting the border and a continuing border crisis that has overwhelmed agents and border communities and dogged the Biden administration.”
As long as the Biden administration continues to give away taxpayer money and allow the crisis to continue unchecked, the problem will only worsen, and the American taxpayer will continue to pay the price for it.
Take the recent college debt relief program introduced by the Biden administration. Countless Americans have worked years to pay for their children’s college only to have that dream watered down and negated by eliminating college debt for others with a poof, just like that move by the Biden crew.
His college debt move comes with suspicious timing to garner a bit more popularity with Gen Z’ers and Millenials- a gross Democratic display of playing dirty politics.
Worse yet, the Biden administration’s departments cannot even get on the same page.
The Fox News column stated:
“Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas recently claimed that the border is ‘secure,’ a claim that brought pushback from officials at the border and Republican lawmakers. FBI Director Christopher Wray recently said the border presents ‘significant security issues’ when asked about Mayorkas’ remarks.”
The Democrat House to designate $50 million dollars of taxpayer money is symbolic to the way the Biden administration runs the country- throw money at the problem and turn your back on it.
The problem is, it’s OUR money.

Officer: While “Team Biden” is targeting cops, they’re also giving away America to illegal immigrants on our dime
Posted August 23, 2022
From last year’s false accusations claiming border patrol agents were using their horse reins to whip Haitian migrants illegally entering the southern border to Texas Governor Abbot sending buses of illegal immigrants to NYC this summer, illegal aliens have received a lot of publicity and Democrats usually have a lot to say to support them.
For instance, despite even the photographer who took the photos of the border patrol agents saying they never used their reins as whips, President Biden himself condemned the agent’s behavior as “outrageous” and promised “those people will pay”.
Not to be outdone, Vice-President Harris said the images of the agents using their horses to corral the migrants was “deeply troubling” and compared it to the “kind of behavior” that was “used against African Americans during times of slavery.”
More recently, NYC Mayor Adams has called Governor Abbot “anti-American” for bussing hundreds of illegal immigrants to his sanctuary city, which he then ensures are personally greeting by his staff and will soon be housed free of charge in luxury NYC hotel rooms.
While those migrant-filled busses were arriving in NYC over the past couple weeks, a deputy sheriff in North Carolina was murdered in the line of duty.
Sometime after 11 p.m. on the night of August 11, 2022, Wake County N.C., Deputy Sheriff Ned Byrd got out of his unmarked patrol SUV to check on something in the road and was shot multiple times.
After Deputy Byrd failed to respond to radio transmissions, other deputies went to his last location and found him dead in the roadway.
Using video from the vehicle’s dash camera as well as surveillance systems from nearby businesses, deputies identified a white pick-up truck and three men believed to be involved in Deputy Byrd’s murder.
After a nationwide manhunt, less than one week later on August 16, 2022, officers tracked down all three men and arrested them.
Two of those men were arrested together and charged with the murder of Deputy Byrd, they are Arturo Marin-Sotelo, 29 and his brother, Alder Alphonso Marin-Sotelo (AAMS), 25.
At least one of these brothers are illegal aliens with prior criminal charges and it is possible the other two men are as well, but the media does not typically include that information in its reporting.
Back on July 14, 2021, AAMS was stopped by a N.C. Highway Patrol Officer for operating a vehicle with a “fictitious tag.” During that traffic stop the officer observed that AAMS had a loaded 9mm Beretta handgun which he illegally possessed as a confessed Mexican national who had illegally crossed the border.
AAMS was arrested, charged with a misdemeanor for carrying a concealed weapon but after he failed to show for his court dates in July and September, his case was dismissed on December 3, 2021.
Had AAMS been kept from illegally entering America in the first place, Deputy Ned Byrd would still be alive – that is outrageous!
That an illegal immigrant is not immediately deported but is instead released back into our society after being arrested for illegally possessing a concealed handgun – is deeply troubling!
A law enforcement officer murdered by people that illegally invaded our country and never should have been here in the first place – is what is anti-American!
The fact that neither our President, Vice-President, Mayor Adams nor a plethora of other pro-illegal immigrant Democrats do not even care enough to comment about Deputy Ned Byrd being murdered by an illegal – that is outrageous, deeply troubling, and anti-American!

GOP warns America that Biden plans to use Amtrak to ship illegal immigrants into interior US
Posted August 23, 2022
WASHINGTON, DC- We’ve often heard old “lunch bucket Joe” wax poetic about the millions of miles he’s traveled on Amtrak…you know, a regular man of the people. Now, according to Town Hall, old Joe may be sharing his train car with an illegal alien or two.
The outlet reports that the Biden administration is poised to use the beleaguered rail system to transport illegal aliens from areas near the U.S-Mexico border.
Nineteen House Republicans claim the Department of Homeland Security has hatched a scheme to use taxpayer money to ship illegals from the border to the interior United States.
The Republicans lay blame squarely on Biden’s messaging and his push to end Title 42 restrictions as the reason for an unprecedented invasion of illegals at the southern border, which led the Republicans to expose Biden’s plot.
GOP lawmakers drafted a letter to Amtrak officials, in which they warned that Biden was planning on using the train service to process illegals if immigration checkpoints become overrun with new arrivals, which they say will exacerbate the current crisis at the border.
“We are concerned about the impact that a significantly greater border surge could cause to your services and the potential use of Amtrak in the Administration’s response to its self-created border crisis,” the letter warns.
“Such a situation would cause disruptions for Amtrak customers as well as interrupt freight traffic that could further exacerbate the supply chain crisis…would also constitute an unconscionable use of significant amounts of taxpayer funds and resources to aid in the vast movement of illegal migrants into American communities,” the letter continued.
The Republicans said they are “deeply concerned” that the railroad may be used to move illegals, in particular the Sunset Limited route.
“We are deeply concerned that Amtrak’s resources—especially those supporting the Sunset Limited route—will be used to transport these undocumented persons,” they wrote.
The invasion into the United States at the southern border is unprecedented, with Customs and Border Protection announcing earlier last week that some 200,000 illegal aliens have entered the U.S. in July alone, bringing the total in this fiscal year to over 1.9 million encounters.
Republicans on the House Transportation Committee are seeking a briefing regarding any discussions that may have occurred between Amtrak officials and the White House on the topic.
Things could get much worse if Title 42 is lifted as Biden attempted to do earlier this year, only to have a federal judge intercede and block the move. The issue is undergoing litigation at the moment, and if it is indeed lifted, even the White House admits illegal immigration into the U.S. will swell, which is unsustainable.
One group of individuals who are looking forward to Title 42 being scuttled are drug cartels and human smugglers south of the border, who “will seek to take advantage of and profit from vulnerable migrants,” admitted feckless Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, admitting the border will be overrun, Fox News reported.
As regards the letter to Amtrak, a spokesman for the railroad said they are currently reviewing the letter and would send a response to GOP lawmakers. Meanwhile, Fox News reached out to the White House and DHS, neither of which returned requests for comment.
