Texas Brings First Successful Lawsuit Against Biden Executive Orders

“I promise my fellow Texans and Americans that I will fight against the many unconstitutional and illegal actions that the new administration will take, challenge federal overreach that infringes on Texans’ rights, and serve as a major check against the administration’s lawlessness.”

(Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton)

 

What is good for the goose is good for the gander, right!

Do you remember how the Socialist Democrats at places like the ACLU and the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society et al stopped most of Trump’s efforts to reform immigration and the Refugee Resettlement process (to keep us safe!) and Trump was sued in virtually every effort.

Let’s hope this is the beginning of a trend!

Federal Texas judge halts Biden’s 100-day deportation ban after Paxton challenge

A federal judge on Tuesday temporarily barred the U.S. government from enforcing a 100-day deportation moratorium, an immigration priority of President Joe Biden.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton on Friday had asked U.S. District Judge Drew Tipton, a nominee of former President Donald Trump who took the bench in Corpus Christi last June, to block the Biden administration’s new policy that pauses most deportations for the next 100 days.

“Texas is the FIRST state in the nation to bring a lawsuit against the Biden Admin,” Paxton, a conservative Republican, wrote on Twitter. “AND WE WON. Within 6 days of Biden’s inauguration, Texas has HALTED his illegal deportation freeze. *This* was a seditious left-wing insurrection. And my team and I stopped it.”

[….]

….Tipton said the Biden administration and key federal agencies that deal with immigration “do not have discretion to completely disregard” federal code that says “when an alien is ordered removed, the Attorney General shall remove the alien from the United States within a period of 90 days.”

[….]

The case appears poised to make its way to the federal appeals courts quickly.

Wow! 1,008 Deportation Flights in 2020!

Just so you know, the open borders agitators were pretty ticked-off at the Trump Administration as it got so many illegals/criminals deported in its final days, including on these flights to Africa.

Going home were “Somali, Ethiopian and Kenyan deportees.”

To the Socialist Dems, they are all “asylum seekers” rather than criminals….

Feds Will Not Bring Charges Against Rep. Ilhan Omar for Marriage/Immigration Fraud

“This was clear marriage fraud and immigration fraud, that’s a fact.”

(DHS insider with knowledge of the investigation)

 

That is the gist of news unearthed by Leo Hohmann writing at World Net Daily this week.

A Dept. of Homeland Security insider says they have the goods on her, but the US Attorney in Minnesota, Erica MacDonald, will not be filing charges.

One more example, even under the Trump Administration, that there are two standards of justice one for them and another for us.

If you are new to the controversy, see my previous posts on the Congresswoman’s marriages.

For additional background, if you are interested, for years at Refugee Resettlement Watch I chronicled the history of immigration fraud that was rampant in the Somali ‘community.’

Back in 2008 (and down the memory hole) the US State Department actually halted all Somali family reunification due to the tens of thousands of fraudulent cases they had unearthed.  Only a tiny handful of those cheaters was ever located and removed.

DHS insider spills beans on Ilhan Omar criminal charges for marrying brother

 

Federal investigators have decided not to prosecute Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., for immigration fraud despite the publicly available evidence that she married her brother to gain him lawful status to remain in the United States.

The news that two separate federal agencies have declined to pursue charges against Omar after a months-long probe came from a veteran insider at the Department of Homeland Security.

The case was investigated by the FBI and involved at least one other agency, but the U.S. Attorney in Minnesota, Erica MacDonald, has decided not to prosecute.

Editor: It is my opinion that US Attorney MacDonald and the whole Justice Department are scared s******* that if charges are brought against Omar, riots of a greater magnitude than those experienced in the George Floyd fiasco would erupt and result in a race war that could spread further once the rest of Minneapolis is burned down.

MacDonald is a Republican who was appointed to her post in June 2018 by President Trump.

[….]

Abdihakim Osman Nur, a member of the Somali-American community in Minnesota, was the first person to go on the record with firsthand evidence of Omar’s marriage to her brother. He told the British-based DailyMail.com earlier this year that Omar told him she wanted to get her brother a green card so he could stay and work in the United States. At the time she was married to her first husband, Ahmed Hirsi.

[….]

Omar denounced the accusations as “disgusting lies” by bloggers who were engaging in “Islamophobia.” She refused to address questions on the matter.

Read about the politics of the decision, but I still maintain that it is fear, fear of violence and chaos, after all we have been trained in recent weeks to stand down.

President Says He Will Now Halt all Immigration (temporarily)

LOL! I wondered if he listened to my man Jeff:

 

Here is the news from Conservative Treehouse last night:

 

Sorry I have been remiss in posting here, but see my posts at RRW on foreign-owned BIG MEAT companies (crooks indeed!), a longtime favorite topic of mine at Refugee Resettlement Watch.   (click on the headlines)

The meat giants lobby for cheap immigrant labor (you support those low wage workers with taxpayer-funded welfare) while they change the character of the American heartland!

Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar’s Marital Status Changes Again

Because I know you need a little diversion from the virus crisis, I figured you would get a little chuckle about the latest in the marital soap opera that seems to be Rep. Ilhan Omar’s way of life.

In their dating days: Mynett with no beard.

[Readers:  Every time I write about Omar I struggle with the decision to post about her at Refugee Resettlement Watch since she is one of the more than a hundred thousand of her countrymen that we have admitted to the US over the last several decades, or should I post here at ‘Frauds and Crooks.’  ‘Frauds and Crooks’ it is!]

The most thorough coverage of the life and times of Omar is at the UK Daily Mail which seems to have a photographer on her tail much of the time!

Congresswoman Ilhan Omar reveals she is MARRIED to her chief fundraiser lover after they were spotted together wearing wedding rings

Leftist congresswoman Ilhan Omar has married her fundraising chief, she has announced.

Her wedding to Tim Mynett happened earlier this week, DailyMail.com understands.

Mynett now sporting beard. Did he convert to Islam?

She announced the wedding in an Instagram post, which was accompanied by the couple in a romantic pose. The couple, both of whom divorced their previous spouses late last year, tied the knot at an undisclosed location.
From partners in politics to life partners. So blessed,’ the Minnesota congresswoman wrote on her Instagram account under the black and white photograph.

The couple were wearing the same rings that DailyMail.com pictured them wearing in Washington, D.C. last week.

Both Omar, 37 and Mynett — whose company received more than $500,000 last year from her campaign — initially denied they were having an affair.

But sources in the Somali community in Minneapolis say she was forced into announcing the nuptials because of articles on DailyMail.com.

Go here to see the long story with lots of pics at the Daily Mail!

Feds Streamline Immigration Fraud Reporting Procedure

NumbersUSA alerted its members last week to a new system at the USCIS for citizens to report fraud.  Thanks to reader Michael for telling me about it.

USCIS Launches New Online Form for Reporting Fraud

 

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has launched a new online tip form to help the public provide the agency with information about immigration fraud. The new online form, available on the USCIS public website, prompts the user for the information that the USCIS’ fraud investigators need to investigate allegations of immigration benefit fraud or abuse.

See that USCIS had previously provided e-mail addresses to report fraud, but will be phasing those out.

The new online tip form collects information related to the relevant fraud, identifies the type of benefit in question and provides space for the user to describe the alleged fraud or abuse in additional detail.

This online form streamlines fraud reporting by replacing three email boxes USCIS now uses for fraud and abuse reporting. The tip form will make the tip process more effective and efficient. Every day, well-intentioned people try to report immigration fraud or abuse to USCIS, but our USCIS’s internal procedures did not allow for a consistent and timely way to respond.

More here.

Marriage fraud, such as I reported in my previous post today, would be something you could report through this new system.  See USCIS list.
