The Democrats were calling for impeachment of Donald Trump before he became president, the United States. Kind of an odd thing, but none the last day the support of the corrupt media You never hear about impeachment when it comes to Joe Biden, who has violated our constitution in myriad ways. And the way these people rule over us with an iron fist. So as right scoop properly points out. You've got Biden's hack. Attorney general, warns the governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, to immediately rescind his new executive order. As Reuters writes. US Attorney General Merrick Garland yesterday warned Texas Governor Greg Abbott to immediately rescind a new executive order aimed at curbing the travel into the state. Of undocumented immigrants who may pose a risk of transmitting covid 19. Notice all the PC language from Reuters. The order violates federal law. Numerous respects and Texas cannot lawfully enforce the executive order against any federal official or private parties working with the United States, Garland told Abbott in a letter. Now that's interesting. But we still have sanctuary cities and stinks thanks to various states, Mr Producer. Who defy federal immigration law. Anywhere not challenged by this administration or this Department of Justice.

"Are live everywhere in the I Heart radio app. We're in Biden Ville by the way last week apparently was the ninth anniversary of Obama. Giving out DACA deferred action for childhood arrivals. The dreamers that anniversary was last week and we have news that Biden did. The Abide administration did their part. To help out, uh illegal immigrants in the United States with a few more moves. We're going to talk about now with Mark Krikorian. Executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies. Mark Welcome back to the show. Thanks for having me. Yeah, Let's start with the the U visa, which is supposed to be for people who are legitimate victims of crime. What are they doing with this? Well, it's they've been abusing it for a while. There's literally a quarter million people with these U visa applications. The local police forces have to okay them and certify that They're actually helping with the prosecution. The problem is, most of this happens in sanctuary cities, so the police forces rubber stamped these things so but that's bad enough. That was before last week. What the administration announced last week was that everybody who has applied for a U visa and it will be years before the application is ever considered, but everyone just who applies It's a work permit. So it's frankly a pretty big amnesty because, you know we're talking quarter million people in the queue now and if you get a work permit out of it. Way more people are going to apply. It's like, Oh, yeah, yeah, I'm a crime victim. Where do I sign up? Uh, And when you get a work permit, you get a social security number, You get a driver's license. And basically, it's all over. You've gotten your industry. It's supposedly temporary, blah, blah, blah. None of that really means anything as we've seen. Also, they made a move on another program called the Central American Minors Refugee Parole Program. What's that about? This is something Obama started. Trump pulled the plug on it and basically what it is. I mean, the rationale is bring people. Who would otherwise sneak across the border through Mexico and across the border. Um and just fly them directly to the United States so that they won't be going to the border. Well, that's Biden's restarted and expanded it. So that more of the, uh Central Americans who are here who left the kids back home with grandma are now able to have basically, uh Family reunification program at U. S government expense and they're supposed to be. You know people who are kids who are fearing persecution. What have you but You know if their cases heard in two or three years from now, they've already been in school. You know, they may have graduated and gotten a work permit again. It's a way of importing more illegal immigrants and actually avoiding the border and just flying them over the border straight into the United States was this kind of the way of saying Well, we wanted to try to tamp down at the number of Minors who are coming to the border, so we'll just come up with the way to get him here around that. Yeah, exactly. You know, just flying here directly, and you know whether or not they actually qualify for asylum once they let in the game is over, so it's basically a way for Earlier Central American illegal immigrants who finagle some sort of work permit. To bring their kids with them, even though they have no right to be here themselves, let alone bring their families and then apparently, there was also a move on the asylum front, The attorney General Merrick Garland, Has made a decision concerning access to asylum. Can you explain that to our listeners? Sure. And that was Wednesday. These were one was Monday. Then Tuesday, and this one is Wednesday. I mean, they had scripted this out each day. Yeah. What happened, right? What happened was Um the courts, activist courts and activist lawyers or expanding who asylum could apply to so that persecution Started to mean Well, you know if the gangs were hassling you back home, If your boyfriend had beat you up, you could claim that as political asylum as persecution. And sessions, attorney General Sessions wrote A. You know a decision because he's in charge of the immigration courts, he says. No, that's not what this means. Garland as undone that and so the point is now You're going to have even more people who are able to who will be able to apply for asylum and who will get asylum and the point of this Is to basically ensure that all of these Central American illegal sneaking across the border won't Even get turned down for asylum. Because now if they get turned down, nobody looks for them. They stay anyway. But this way they're trying to make sure that they all get asylum. And so, which means they would get a work permit, and eventually they get a green card and citizenship if they want it, So this is another kind of an amnesty vehicle. Using the using the the the mechanism of political asylum. I don't think a lot of people realized that the rules traditionally surrounding asylum are pretty narrow in terms of who actually qualifies, I think even Obama said that once But and they're supposed to be narrow because it's an exception to the immigration laws. In other words, there's all these rules. Congress has set up this many for this category and you have to qualify all that stuff. Asylum is a way of Short circuiting all of that. So if you're going to have that you have to have the bar very high. And what these guys want to do is use asylum as basically a way of ignoring the rest of the immigration system and just letting people in Just because they want to Now is this discretionary? Or is this something Congress has to do when you come to something like asylum? It sounds like that's more of a legal term. Well, it is and it's determined in the law, but you know, there's uh Lot of wiggle room and not to get too technical. But there's five grounds that you could claim asylum aren't you could be persecuted based on race, religion, politics or nationality. Those are all pretty obvious, right religion, your ethnic group, whatever the fifth category that you could use to claim asylum. As you're being persecuted because of quote Membership in a particular social group unquote. That means any damn thing. A judge wants it to me, and the point of what sessions did was to try to Fence that in and give a bright line of what is what does and does not qualify. And what the attorney with the Biden administration has done is erased that bright line All right, Mark. Appreciate you explaining it all it was. Thanks. Any time thank mark record is executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies. And on the week of the ninth anniversary of Obama, Given out DACA that's deferred action for childhood arrivals as a de facto amnesty, the dreamer kids The O. The Biden administration rolled out three new illegal aliens gifts and just heard us talk about them the they're all dangerous, but the expansion of asylum. The fact now just about anybody applying can qualify because they broadened. The definition is just another way of getting more people into the country, and that seems to be what the party wants.

"This is all things considered from NPR news. Survivors of domestic and gang violence have better odds of getting asylum in the U. S. After a move today from the Biden administration, the Justice Department says it's vacating several controversial decisions from the Trump administration that sharply limited who is eligible for asylum. NPR's Joel Rose has been covering this issue for several years. He's with us now. Hey, Joe. Hey, Mary Louise Alright, fell in a little bit more detail about what exactly, the Justice Department announced today. Sure, Attorney General Merrick Garland is vacating several rulings issued by his predecessors that made it all but impossible for migrants to get asylum protections in the U. S. If their claims were based on being victims, survivors of domestic violence or gang violence. President Biden had already signed an executive order telling his administration to craft new asylum regulations to replace those decisions. But those trump era rules were still on the books and immigrant advocates said survivors of domestic violence in particular were in danger of being deported to countries where they could face further abuse and where authorities won't help them. And those advocates urged Attorney General Garland to vacate these rulings. And today that is exactly what he did. And did they give an explanation? Did the Justice Department say why exactly? It's taking this step? Associate Attorney General Benita Gupta wrote a memo to immigration judges explaining these decisions to the people who will have to enact them. And she said these decisions reflect America's commitment to providing refuge to some of the world's most vulnerable people, and that they concern quote important questions about the meaning of our nation's asylum laws. They don't necessarily answer all of those questions, though the administration Will have to grapple with these complex issues in a formal rulemaking process that involves the Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security, and that is likely to take months. But for now, the rules around who qualifies for asylum. Are basically returned back to where they were before President Trump took office. So walk us through why President Trump's attorneys general thought this was a good idea why they tried dilemma who qualifies for asylum. Well. They argued that the rules have become too expansive that the asylum system was being flooded with vague or downright fraudulent claims. Trump's first Attorney General Jeff Sessions, said asylum was never intended to alleviate all of the world's problems. Even serious problems and the backlog and immigration courts is now more than 1.3 million cases so it can take years before asylum cases are decided. And hardliners believe that migrants are knowingly abusing that system to get into the U. S. While their cases are adjudicated, and Trump himself often referred to asylum as a quote scam, But immigrant advocates dispute that they say survivors of domestic violence and gang violence do have legitimate claims and that they deserve a chance to argue that they qualify for asylum under U. S laws. Just to take this from the high legal level down to the personal. You have talked several times to the woman whose immigration case is at the center of this whole debate. Have you spoken to her? Do you know what her reaction to this is? Yeah, That's right. She's known in court papers only as Miss Abby. She fled domestic abuse in El Salvador and applied for asylum in the U. S. And it seemed like she had won her immigration case until Attorney General Sessions intervened three years ago and used her case as a precedent to implement these new restrictions. I interviewed her back then, and I talked to her again today on the phone content. I I feel content and happy that my case can help other women who are going through the same thing that I am. I have a lot of hope and a lot of faith. Her own case, I should say is not decided yet. But her lawyers are confident that she will eventually receive a grant of asylum and finally be able to apply to bring her Children to join her in the U. S. Thank you, Joel.

I want you to know what he's doing. We have the head of the Civil rights division of the Justice Department who is a flat out her name is Clark as I recall flat out racist, she said, and written some of the most unbelievable stuff. I think Susan Collins voted for a confirmation to but nonetheless, there she is. And having secured that position. At the request of Biden and this attorney general. What's happening now? According to Yahoo News, John Ward. Attorney General Merrick Garland. Said that the Department of Justice will dramatically increase its focus on preventing voter suppression. Now you have to understand something. Voter suppression for the Democrat party means what Means state legislatures having rational voting systems in place. Not anarchy. So he's going to increase its focus on preventing voter suppression by doubling the number of lawyers in the civil rights division. In response to a rash of lawsuits or low Excuse me. Laws that have been made made it harder to vote in many states. Now you have to understand how lousy the media Made it harder to vote in many states. So if I want to leave Virginia and vote in, say, Maryland and they say you can't because I'm not a citizen of Maryland. You see, Maryland has just made it harder for me to vote in Maryland. Mr. Producer you understand? It's just disgusting. Our media have really killed this country. We'll use all existing provisions to ensure that we protect every qualified Americans seeking to participate in our democracy, Garland said in one of his Castro like speeches Garland compared his action to that taken by former Attorney General Robert Kennedy, who said the Justice Department needed a lot more lawyers to combat laws and said says nothing to do. With what Robert Kennedy had to do during segregation. This is so outrageously disgusting. They're gonna double the lawyers and the civil rights division and unleash them on our country. Harass the state legislatures try and push this H R one s one into law, forcing states to adopt them. Because Congress couldn't pass it. That is exactly what's going on here. This has nothing to do with Robert Kennedy from 1961 to 1964. Island, said that the modern Department of Justice is in a similar position. Take Kennedy's because the U. S. Supreme Court's 2013 decision in Shelby County versus Holder which essentially eliminated the policy, preclearance Preclearance. We talked about this. These states were not all southern states. They even pick some northern states or northern northern counties in some northern states. The federal government said any Changes that you make to your election laws in this state or this county has to be approved by the civil rights division of the Department of Justice. So after more than a quarter century. There was a challenge, saying, Look Haven't violated anything. We haven't violated the Constitution. We haven't violated this law, the 1965 Civil Rights Law Voting Rights Act. When do we get to come out from under this? There has to be a point at which the federal government doesn't control us. And the Supreme Court. In 2013. Said. You're right. Said. You're right. That doesn't mean they didn't eliminate again. As I've said again, the part of the law that provides an individual cause of action if an individual can show That they were prevented from voting because of race or sex, or what have you they have a federal lawsuit there because of action. So that still occurs. Listen to the media, and it goes on in numerous states controlled almost entirely by Republicans. It's been a rash of laws proposed and passed in the name of election integrity. Listen to how this is written. To make it harder to vote. Now, let's slow down. Which means I guess we're a rash of laws passed during the virus. To make it easier to vote because of the virus. It was never intended to be permanent ever. Some expansions being rolled back were made to accommodate needs during the Covid 19 pandemic. But the new laws have been pushed by many Republicans who continue to spread baseless rumors and lies about the 2020 presidential election that former President Donald Trump started and continues to talk about. That has nothing to do with anything. Nothing. To do with anything. As I read this article, I kept saying to myself what exactly is being done to stop people from voting? They don't provide a single example not one Because there aren't they So they want you to believe nothing has changed since 1965 you see, ladies and gentlemen. Nothing. Nine states were covered by the law. Counties and townships and five other states came into the law, including Pennsylvania, by the way. Amazing how the Democrats states are never targeted for this sort of thing, despite the fact that they try to fix the election for Democrats. My point here, though, is the Is the effort here. Really pernicious word. I have to use a lot to describe this administration. He wants to hire a ton of so called lawyers in the civil rights division. To attack the state legislatures. Ladies and gentlemen. And to try and impose to try and enforce on them. The outcome that the Democrats want. In a word, it's tyranny. It's tyranny. This guy Merrick are, by the way. Have you noticed the gutless Republicans? I just have to say this At the drop of the hat. They wanted to impeach everybody. Didn't they want to Mr Producer? Before Trump comes in. They want to impeach him. The minute he comes in. They want to impeach him every minute there after they want to impeach him. They want to impeach Jeff sessions they want to impeach Bill Barr.

"Left these days about how we live in an entirely white supremacist society, and how far is this from a court saying You know you were a parent who objected at one of these recent, You know, P t a meetings to critical race theory and you have a a multiracial child, You know, so we might have to actually affect your custody of that child because you don't support critical race theory. I don't see how that's not a logical conclusion from this. Right and in states like Tennessee right now, where you have attempts to ban critical race theory, teachers are just rejecting it, like in other words, It's okay for you to break the law when when the law is actually written. It's such when when you're doing it from a kind of left wing position, But On the other hand, if if the judge that you're dealing with is himself elected? Uh, Like the rules don't apply that way. But you can't if you basically if you try to do the same thing for the right, like I'm gonna ignore what this judge says you're gonna lose your kid. It doesn't There's only goes one way. In other words. I think that this is actually cause for concern. And I'm like you like I try not to get too worked up about the news because if I did, I would go and saying Especially government overreach, because This is the world that we live in now, but this is definitely I think a new step in the wrong direction and in the background, you also have a attorney General Merrick Garland, saying that domestic Extremism of the white variety is the greatest danger this country faces. So you have a kind of a new kind of legal system that is Emerging that is going to I think, normalize this kind of thing. Where if you have the wrong opinions if they smell wrong if you're not toeing the line, like the ideological line that everyone is bowing to certain, which is, I think encapsulated by the critical race theory. Narrative, which is America's bad white people about America's races. Then you're actually going to start not just seeing things like people losing their jobs, But, you know, are you like what could happen to your family? I don't want to. Get their guns too ahead of it, But I think the threat of this is real court just threaten to take away someone's kid because of basically their political opinions are on display. It's un exaggeration to be deeply concerned about that. Pedro. I wonder what it will take. I wonder what it will take for the Republican Party. To finally have really a unified message about going on offense. When it comes to school curriculum, critical race theory and speech. It feels to me like we're still in this zone of we want to preserve. Neutral Public square where we don't want to tell people you know, we don't want to teach patriotism or we want to tell people that you love there. We just want everyone to be able. And it feels like that has been a losing strategy to the point now where we are defending so to speak on the football field on the goal line when it comes to free speech, when you see what's going on in this story, and so many others Yeah, well, I don't actually know what the Republican Party could do this because the party it's kind of like a zombie. It doesn't seem to change no matter what it gets hit with or what comes out it. It just keeps changing along and absorbs whatever happens and finds a way to kind of exists in that space. But for my part, I think that we should actually take the gloves off. And if we ever do, uh, we hopefully will have another shot at the White House and Another shot at having control of both the White House and Congress. I think that we should Actually take up what would be considered radical measures right now with the GOP. One example. That I've had my mind is the National Endowment for the Humanities. This is a agency that supports research, education and public programs in the humanities. In other words, this is an institution that helps cultivate Taste in opinion, right? So organizations institutions like this. They're all controlled by the left. And what does that mean?.
