Axed Judge Speaks Out on DOJ Effort to Pack Immigration Courts with Amnesty Judges

President Joe Biden’s deputies are firing some of the pro-American immigration judges appointed by President Donald Trump.

Immigration judges are hired by the Department of Justice to decide when migrants should be deported or allowed to stay in the United States.

One of the ejected Trump judges, Matthew O’Brien, who was seated in the Arlington, Virginia court, spoke out on the development during Fox News’s The Ingraham Angle on Wednesday.

At least six judges have already been fired, including Matthew O’Brien, who was seated in the Arlington, Virginia, court. O’Brien told Ingraham:

The immigration courts are supposed to give people who are seeking to remain in the United States or have violated the immigration law a fair review of any claims they have made. The Biden administration is trying to turn the immigration court into, essentially, a free candy store, so that anyone who appears in front of the immigration court winds up getting some kind of benefit or being allowed to stay in the United States. And that’s not what the courts were designed to do.

Amnesty Expected to Overwhelm Social Security and Medicare

Mass migration comes with massive financial burdens, along with political and social costs. If Democrats’ current mass amnesty policies get enacted, America’s political system could be radically transformed in an irreversible manner, based on the voting habits of the majority of migrant groups.

The Democrat Party’s current mass amnesty fantasies will not come cheaply.

According to Jason Richwine, a resident scholar for the Center for Immigration Studies, legalizing the 11 to 22 million illegal aliens residing in the United States will create an enormous fiscal burden.

Richwine initially noted that “illegal immigrants are net contributors to Social Security and Medicare,” according to the current law. However, upon receiving amnesty, Richwine observed that “amnesty would transform illegal immigrants from net contributors into net beneficiaries, imposing steep costs on the Social Security and Medicare trust funds.”

The CIS resident scholar highlighted several of the costs:

  • Amnesty would impose a lifetime net cost on Social Security and Medicare Part A (hospital insurance) of about $129,000 per amnesty recipient. This cost is the present discounted value of benefits received minus new taxes paid.
  • If 10 million illegal immigrants receive amnesty, the total cost to Social Security and Medicare Part A would be roughly $1.3 trillion in present value, equivalent to a one-time transfer of 6 percent of GDP.

Ann Coulter: GOP Moves to Save Biden: We Want Amnesty, Too!

President Joe Biden’s immigration bill will put virtually all illegal immigrants on a bullet train to citizenship, provided that they meet the onerous requirement of claiming to have entered the country before Jan. 1, 2021. Only terrorists and convicted felons are excluded — at least in theory, but past experience suggests they’ll get amnesty, too. Even illegal immigrants who’ve already been deported will be invited back and given amnesty.

So far, the Republicans’ response has been to propose their own amnesty, while throwing in some boob-bait for the rubes about border security.

Even the election of Donald Trump, a ridiculous creature who became president by promising to crack down on illegal immigration and build a wall (promises he ignored), hasn’t put a dent in Washington’s enthusiasm for overwhelming the country with the third world.

On this, the parties are united! The only difference is, Republicans lie to the voters about securing the border.

Under Biden’s immigration bill, a gigantic number of illegals will be given green cards immediately and will be eligible for citizenship in three years — just in time for the 2024 election.

Study: Biden Amnesty Would Import California-Size Foreign Population

President Joe Biden’s amnesty plan, which also expands legal immigration levels, would import a foreign population close to the size of California, new analysis reveals.

Last month, House and Senate Democrats introduced the Biden plan — known as H.R. 1177 & S. 348 — which would give amnesty to the roughly 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States while doubling annual legal immigration to the country, flooding the labor market with more foreign competition for the nation’s more than 17 million jobless Americans.

Analysis conducted by NumbersUSA, which advocates on behalf of American workers for less foreign competition in the labor market, finds that by 2031, Biden’s amnesty will have imported a foreign-born population nearly the size of California.

By 2031, the analysis states, nearly 12 million illegal aliens will have taken advantage of the amnesty provisions of the legislation that would allow them to permanently remain in the U.S. and eventually obtain American citizenship.

Cruz Slams Trump on Amnesty: ‘Inconsistent with the Promises We Made’

Sen. Ted Cruz is taking a stand against President Donald Trump’s proposal to allow 700,000 ‘dreamer’ illegal immigrants win the huge prize of American citizenship.

According to Bloomberg, Cruz told reporters Thursday that:

“I do not believe we should be granting a path to citizenship to anybody here illegally,” the Texas Republican said in the Capitol. “Doing so is inconsistent with the promises we made to the men and women who elected us” …

“For some reason that to me is utterly inexplicable, we see Republicans falling all over themselves to gallop to the left of Obama in a way that is contrary to the promises made to the voters who elected us,” Cruz said. “We need to honor the promises we made. And that is what I am energetically urging my colleagues to do.”

The pushback came after Trump casually suggested Wednesday night that he could agree to Democrats’ demand that the 700,000 illegals enrolled in the ‘DACA’ amnesty could have citizenship. Trump said to reporters:

We’re going to morph into it, it’s going to happen. Over a period of 10 to 12 years, somebody does a great job, they’ve worked hard.

Trump’s amnesty proposal is far smaller than the now-dead “Gang of Six” plan by GOP Sens. Lindsey Graham, Jeff Flake, and Cory Gardner. That giveaway would have provided citizenship to 3.25 million illegals and work-permits to their roughly 4.75 million parents. The 8 million number was announced by White House press secretary Hogan Gidley. The gang’s plan would also have allowed the 3.25 million migrants to import additional migrants as chain-migration relatives.

Trump Defeats Democrats ‘Amnesty-or-Shutdown’ Threat

Democratic leader Sen. Chuck Schumer has joined the retreat from the Democrats’ shutdown-or-amnesty threat, marking a solid victory by President Donald Trump and his voters.

However, Democrats are quietly developing a counter-attack by recruiting several GOP Senators — including Sen. Lisa Murkowski in Alaska — to push an amnesty for 3 million so-called ‘dreamers’ in exchange for token benefits for Americans. The effort is being led by Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin, and it is also intended to block the pro-American, Trump-backed reform being pushed by GOP Sen. Chuck Grassley which would stop chain-migration and end the visa lottery.

Trump won the amnesty-or-shutdown fight by aggressively criticizing the Democrats’ for their support of unpopular mass immigration. In late November, for example, he taunted Democrats’ just before a White House meeting with top Democrats.

Trump’s clout in the dispute is boosted by his popular pro-American immigration policies, which he summarizes as “Buy American, Hire American.”

Steve King Pledges to Block ‘Every Form’ of Amnesty for Illegal Aliens in Kate Steinle’s Honor

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) says he will do his part in honoring 32-year-old Kate Steinle — whose illegal alien killer was acquitted of her murder — by blocking “every form” of amnesty that the GOP-led Congress attempts to push.

After five-time deportee and seven-time felon illegal alien Jose Garcia Zarate, also known as Juan Francisco López-Sánchez, was not convicted of the murder of Steinle — despite previously admitting to shooting and killing the woman while she was walking on a pier with her father — King called the decision “Sickening!”

“The illegal alien who, no one disagrees, killed Kate Steinle is found NOT guilty in sanctuary city, San Francisco. Sickening!” King wrote.

King also vowed to oppose any amnesty for illegal aliens that the Congress may attempt to pass by the end of the year.

“I will spare no effort to do my own killing-of all amnesty in every form!” King continued.

NYT: Mexico Owns California and Texas, Will Trade For Amnesty

The New York Times has just published an op-ed article saying that Mexico may give up its rightful claim to ownership of Texas, California and the entire Southwest of the United States, but only if the U.S. government gives the hugely valuable prize of U.S. citizenship to many millions of Mexicans — plus citizenship for all their kids and grandkids, on and on, forever.

The infinitely valuable compensation is justified because today’s Americans must wipe away the moral stain of war crimes committed in the 1840s by the U.S. military and government, says the op-ed by a Mexican historian and author, Enrique Krauze, who notably declined to forswear a alternative Mexican reconquista of the Southwest.

MEXICO CITY — The United States invasion of Mexico in 1846 inflicted a painful wound that, in the 170 years that followed, turned into a scar. Donald Trump has torn it open again…

… some Mexicans are proposing to remind Mr. Trump exactly what country was the first victim of American imperialism. They are calling for a lawsuit that would aim to nullify the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo (signed on Feb. 2, 1848), in which Mexico — invaded by American soldiers, its capital occupied, its ports and customs stations seized — was forced to accept the American annexation of Texas and concede more than half the rest of Mexican territory, now including most of the states of Arizona, New Mexico and California…

For us Mexicans, this is the chance for a kind of reconquest. Surely not the physical reconquest of the territories that once were ours. Nor an indemnification that should have been much greater than the feeble amount of $15 million that the American government paid, in installments, for the stolen land. We need a reconquest of the memory of that war so prodigal in atrocities inspired by racial prejudices and greed for territorial gain.
