Biden Admin Slammed for Newly Announced Plan to 'Airlift' Family of Illegal Immigrants Into US

Western Journal

America First Legal President Stephen Miller, who served as senior adviser to former President Donald Trump, blasted a Wednesday announcement by the Department of State and the Department of Homeland Security, saying the federal agencies have launched an “airlift operation” to bring the relatives of illegal immigrants to live in the United States.

“The Biden Administration’s war on national sovereignty has reached unimaginable new depths,” Miller said in a statement.

“Unsatisfied with simply melting the border through nationwide catch-and-release, they have announced a new program to find and recruit the relatives of illegal aliens and fly them into the United States,” he added.

Miller called out the move as “a colossal airlift operation for the relatives of illegal aliens now living in the United States.”

The program, which Miller’s group called “blatantly unlawful,” would allow the children of illegal immigrants to be flown from Central America to the U.S. at the expense of American taxpayers.

“Under this preposterous and plainly unlawful program, illegal aliens now residing inside the United States — including recipients of deferred action and those who have merely applied for asylum — can petition the government to ‘parole’ their children into the United States, or any other relative over whom they assert guardian status,” Miller said.

“A larger magnet for illegal immigration could not be envisioned: sneak across the border, gain a foothold in the United States, and then the government will then bring in the rest of your family.

“We are conscripting career Homeland Security and Department of State officials into providing a global taxi service for illegal aliens and their families. This massive, government-fueled surge of both illegal and low-skilled migration will place enormous burdens on the already burdened shoulders of the U.S. workers and taxpayers. What the Biden Administration has announced is illegal, unconstitutional, and unconscionable,” Miller concluded.

The AFL Twitter account added, “Unsatisfied with simply melting the border through nationwide catch-and-release, the Biden Administration has announced a new program to find and recruit the relatives of illegal aliens and fly them into the United States.”

Miller’s statement comes as Trump announced on Tuesday that he will travel to the nation’s southern border at the request of Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott.

“I have accepted the invitation of Texas Governor Greg Abbott to join him on an official visit to our Nation’s decimated Southern Border,”  Trump announced in a message posted to his Telegram account. He said the visit will take place on June 30.

Trump criticized the Biden administration and lamented the conditions at the border.

“The Biden Administration inherited from me the strongest, safest, and most secure border in U.S history and in mere weeks they turned it into the single worst border crisis in U.S history. It’s an unmitigated disaster zone,” Trump said.

Trump noted the changes that have taken place at the border over the past five months as the Biden administration swiftly reversed his policies.

“We went from detain-and-remove to catch-and-release. We went from having border security that was the envy of the world to a lawless border that is now pitied around the world. Biden and Harris have handed control of our border over to cartels, criminals, and coyotes,” he wrote.

“Drug dealers, MS-13 gang members, human smugglers, sex traffickers, and the criminal elements of the world now have free reign. Hospitals and schools are getting crushed and public health is being sacrificed all in service of a radical left anti-borders agenda. Our brave border agents and courageous ICE officers have been illegally stopped from doing their jobs.

“Our Nation is now one giant sanctuary city where even dangerous criminals are being cut loose and set free inside the U.S interior on a daily basis,” Trump said.

Family Escapes Through 2nd-Story Window During Armed Standoff After Suspect Barricades Door: Report

Western Journal

Published

On July 25, in Auburn, Alabama, a man reportedly put his family, his neighborhood, first responders and himself in a very dangerous position. Calls came into the Auburn Police District around 7:00 p.m. reporting a domestic violence incident in the Camden Ridge Subdivision. When police arrived, the man reportedly began firing at them with a handgun. Police fired back, and the man retreated into the home, where he also had his family trapped in a room. Thanks to the police and fire department coming together and working smarter instead of harder, the situation was resolved without injury to the family members trapped upstairs. It was firefighter Andrew Kiser, Chief of Police Cedric Anderson and Shift Supervisor Lt. Cody Hill who were responsible for carrying out the daring rescue that helped bring the threat to an end. While the shooter refused to exit the house, the men carried a ladder to the house and set it up to reach one of the second-story windows, where they learned the man’s family had been trapped. While Anderson held the ladder steady, Hill climbed the ladder and Kiser assisted the family as they climbed out of the window. With the family out of the way, Lee County SWAT was able to enter the house and capture the suspect. He was taken to Baptist Medical Center South after he was found to have sustained what appeared to be a gunshot wound. “Auburn PD Alerts: Heavy Police Activity in the Camden Ridge Subdivision, in the area of Wedgewood Ct.,” a public safety alert for the area read, according to WRBL-TV. “The scene is secure at this time, NO ONGOING THREAT.” Auburn Assistant Police Chief Clarence Stewart praised the efforts of all involved, highlighting how each group present played an important role in…

After Receiving Call About Blazing Attic Fire, Police Rescue Man Trapped Inside Smoke-Filled Bedroom

Western Journal

A family in Marlboro Township, New Jersey, woke up just before midnight on Sunday and sensed something was wrong. They called 911 at around 11:38 p.m., reporting a “possible fire at the residence,” according to The Journal NJ. Officers Ryan Anzalone, Donna Gonzalez, Michael Morgante and Colin Murray with the Marlboro Township Police Department were first on the scene and quickly assessed the situation. They found smoke pouring out of the attic, but were relieved to see the family appeared to have exited the home. After a short time, though, the family realized one of their members was not with them, and was likely still trapped inside on the second floor. Gonzalez and Anzalone charged in and found the man, as described, in a bedroom on the second floor. By the time they got there, the room was “completely filled with smoke,” but they managed to rescue the resident. The fire department had a difficult time accessing the home due to the long, narrow driveway and a large landscaping rock. “While enroute Chief 2-66 was advised of heavy smoke from the attic,” the Robertsville Volunteer Fire Co. #1 posted on Facebook. “At the time the mutual aid response plan was put in place and the box alarm was requested to bring in initial assistance.” “Upon the arrival of 2-66 Chief advised the house was located down a 180 foot narrow driveway. Once engine 2-75 arrived there was trouble accessing the house due to a large ornamental boulder and trees. Members of the engine and police moved the 400lb boulder so the engine could get to the house and attack the fire. “As the incident progressed, the second alarm mutual aid plan was requested for this deep seated, hard to access attic fire.” The two officers who…
