The Department of Homeland Security has given Congress its report on the number of foreign nationals who remain in the United States on expired visas, but the information has not been subsequently released to the public, the Washington Free Beacon has learned.

To begin with, Newsom has allowed California to maintain its status as a “sanctuary state” for illegal immigrants. This means that Newsom and his administration have forbidden local law enforcement in California from complying with federal immigration authorities in their efforts to deport non- citizens. Newsom has even gone as far as banning arrests for immigration violations across the state of California. Newsom has also egregiously allowed illegal immigrants to serve on state government commissions and boards. Newsom’s rewards for those who violate America’s immigration laws do not stop there. Back in April of 2020, Newsom announced a new $125 million program dedicated to providing cash payments to illegal immigrants. The program was supported by $75 million in taxpayer funds and $50 million from a group of charities. The program provided approximately 150,000 adults, illegal immigrants, $500 each, with a $1,000 cap being placed on total payments per household. Lastly, on July 27, 2021, Newsom signed AB-133 into law. The legislation allows eligible illegal immigrants aged 50 or older to receive taxpayer-funded Medi-Cal insurance. The move is expected to cost California taxpayers upwards of $1.3 billion. 2021/09/07--https://min.amac.us/14-reasons-for-california-to-recall-gavin-newsom-on-september-14th/ August Law Enforcement 2021/08/15 In bombshell ruling, US District Judge rules Biden must reinstate Trump’s “remain in Mexico” program https://www.lawenforcementtoday.com/in-bombshell-ruling-us-district-judge-rules-biden-must-reinstate- trumps-remain-in-mexico- program/#:~:text=A%20federal%20judge%20has%20ruled%20that%20the%20Biden,stay%20in%20Mexico%2 0while%20awaiting%20their%20asylum%20applications.

The arrests put in motion plans that Abbott first announced in June, when he also said that Texas would continue building former President Donald Trump's border wall and called on other governors to deploy law enforcement and National Guard members to the southern border. https://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/texas-begins-jailing-border-crossers-trespassing-charges-79002820 CBP dot gov [also found in Trafficking/Stash Houses-Humans] 2021/07/16 El Paso Sector Agents locate stash houses and $600k worth of Methamphetamine https //www cbpgov/newsroom/local-media-release/el-paso-sector-age nts-locate-stash-houses-and-600k-worth Excerpt: Chaparral, New Mexico: -67 undocument migrants: 44 Guatemalans, 16 Ecuadorans, five Mexicans, one El Salvadorian, and one Honduran.
