The legal pushback against President Joe Biden’s radical left-wing agenda has begun in earnest, as Arizona becomes the latest state to take the administration to court.

No sooner than Biden took office and sat down behind the Resolute Desk, his handlers had a pre-selected stack of executive orders for him to sign. The majority of those early EOs were reversals of very effective border control and immigration enforcement policies enacted by Biden’s predecessor, President Donald Trump.

And while illegal immigration had already been rising (thanks to Biden’s campaign pledges to a) reverse Trump orders and b) stop deportations), it really took off after the current president proved he planned to keep those promises.

But Biden’s orders have had real-world consequences, especially for border states like Texas and Arizona, where historically, illegal immigration has always been the most problematic.

As such, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich has filed suit against the administration, alleging “harmful immigration orders, and is now asking a court to void [Biden’s] executive actions to halt the construction of the border wall and reversing the Trump administration’s ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy,” The Epoch Times reported.

Brnovich is arguing in court that those orders have violated the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), which requires federal agencies like the DHS to weigh environmental considerations before taking any significant federal action.

The DHS and federal officials, however, did not provide environmental impact statements or environmental assessments after the agency stopped construction of the U.S.-Mexico border wall and started permitting entry to illegal immigrants after ending the Migrant Protection Protocols, the Remain in Mexico policy that was started under the Trump administration, according to Brnovich’s office

“It’s the pinnacle of hypocrisy for the Biden Administration to claim it wants to protect our environment, while not enforcing federal statutes that are specifically designed for that purpose,” the Republican attorney general noted on Monday. “We’re not going to sit idly by as the Biden Administration ignores real harms to our state resulting from its heavy-handed executive orders.”

The order to stop wall construction came on Biden’s first day in office; getting rid of the MPPs took a few days more.

“Although those immigration policies undeniably have significant effects on the environment, Defendants have not even attempted to comply with NEPA,” said Brnovich.

The suit argues that thousands of illegal immigrants have settled down in Arizona after crossing from Mexico who otherwise would not have if the wall was completed as Trump had ordered and the ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy was still being enforced.

“Migrants, like everyone else, need housing, infrastructure, hospitals, and schools. They drive cars, purchase goods, and use public parks and other facilities. All of these activities have significant environmental impacts, including displacement of undeveloped lands and additional air emissions,” said Brnovich.

“But although courts have repeatedly recognized that these impacts must be analyzed under NEPA, DHS has never even attempted to do so,” he added, according to his press release, which also said that after construction was halted, “machinery has been standing idle” in parts of his state.

Border Crisis

More than 178,000 illegally crossed southern U.S. border in April, a two-decade high

Published

on

U.S. Customs and Border Protection reported Tuesday that 178,622 people attempted to illegally enter America’s southern border in April, a two-decade high.

Officials said single adults comprised a majority of encounters.

“CBP continues to see a large influx of illegal migration along the Southwest Border,” Acting CBP Commissioner Troy Miller said in a statement.

CBP said April illegal crossing represented a 3% increase over the previous month, a sign the surge was slowing with the help of Mexican authorities.

Still, the monthly total was the highest since the early 2000’s, according to CPB historical data

The news came as a group of 20 GOP governors in a letter urged President Biden and Vice President Harris to secure the border.

“At a time when our country is trying to recover from a once-in-a-generation pandemic, the last thing we need is a self-created crisis that exploits families, undermines public safety, and threatens our national security. We urge you to take action to end the humanitarian crisis and secure our southern border immediately,” the governors said in their letter.

Texas sues Biden administration, says response to border surge jeopardizes public health

Published

Texas sued the Biden administration on Thursday, saying its response to the migrant surge at the border has violated federal rules for the pandemic and jeopardized public safety.

“By causing an influx of aliens who are or might be infected with COVID into the United States, Defendants’ unlawful actions imperil the public health of Texas and the United States, and weaken the ability of the economies of Texas and the United States to recover, through reopening, from the effects of the pandemic,” the suit says.

There have been more than 570,000 coronavirus fatalities so far in the U.S. and more than 3 million worldwide, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.

Biden’s ‘Border Coordinator’ to Step Down Amid Invasion at the U.S./Mexico Border

Published

on

Is the resignation of Biden’s ‘Border Coordinator’ a case of rats jumping from a sinking ship, or does Roberta S. Jacobson suddenly have a conscience?

We may never know because Jacobson claims she had always planned to leave at the 100-day mark of the Biden administration. The New York Times says, “the timing of her departure is nonetheless striking”:

“The timing of her departure is nonetheless striking, coming in the middle of the administration’s efforts to reduce the flow of immigration from Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador. Ms. Jacobson had been charged with leading that effort when her appointment was announced this year.”

It’s difficult to believe that this whole border chaos/crisis has a coordinator. The Biden administration came in and boldly got rid of all of President Trump’s progress in securing the border. The result has been a global free-for-all of pretty much anyone and everyone coming into the U.S.

Videos like the one below have put the Biden regime on the hot seat:
