A unanimous Supreme Court decision spells bad news for illegals who were hoping to stay in the United States permanently. On Monday, SCOTUS ruled that illegals who are in the country can’t stay.

While Democrats are trying to open up our borders and make staying in the U.S. really easy for those who decided to enter illegally, SCOTUS unanimously said “no” to that idea. TheBlaze reports:

The ruling in Sanchez v. Mayorkas, authored by Justice Elena Kagan, could affect tens of thousands of immigrants currently living in the U.S. under Temporary Protected Status, the Associated Press reported.

The case was brought by Jose Sanchez and Sonia Gonzalez, a married couple from of El Salvador who entered the United States illegally in the late 1990s. Later, in 2001, the two were granted Temporary Protected Status in the U.S. after El Salvador was rocked by devastating earthquakes.

TPS is a status granted to foreign nationals from certain designated countries ravaged by armed conflict or natural disaster that allows them to live and work in the U.S. without being subject to deportation.

Then in 2014, Sanchez and Gonzalez applied for “green cards,” or lawful permanent resident status, but were denied, and subsequently sued.

The Third Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia, however, ruled against them, arguing that they were ineligible under federal immigration law, which requires applicants to have been “inspected and admitted” into the U.S, the New York Times reported.

In Monday’s unanimous ruling, the nation’s top court agreed with that decision.

“The question here is whether the conferral of TPS enables him to obtain LPR status despite his unlawful entry. We hold that it does not,” wrote liberal Justice Elena Kagan. “Lawful status and admission, as the court below recognized are distinct concepts in immigration law: Establishing one does not necessarily establish the other.”

“The TPS program gives foreign nationals nonimmigrant status, but it does not admit them. So the conferral of TPS does not make an unlawful entrant … eligible [for a green card],” she explained.

This decision affects as many as 400,000 illegal immigrants and stands to show that sometimes, even liberals recognize that when you don’t have borders or rule of law, you don’t have a country.

“Joe Biden is taking the border crisis head on” is not a sentence a sane person would speak. Nor a well-informed person. Nor an honest person. But that’s what Biden Propaganda Minister Jen Psaki went with during Tuesday’s propaganda briefing. And interestingly, she also blame the crisis, which Biden caused, on Trump.

“After four years of an immigration system rooted in destructive and chaotic policies, President Biden is taking the challenge head on and is building a fair, orderly and humane immigration system,” Psaki says. “That’s our objective. After coming into office, our administration immediately jumped into action to address the influx of migrants at the border – something that began during and was exacerbated by the Trump administration.”

Previously, Psaki admitted that the Biden Administration “may have” caused the crisis at the border. Ever since he became President, Biden has caused new COVID-19 outbreaks when migrants tested positive and were not made to quarantine. The problem is so bad that almost 3/4 of voters say they are worried that migrants are spreading COVID to our communities.

Psaki can blame the crisis on Trump all she wants, but illegals themselves admit that they would not be here if not for Biden welcoming them over. And Mexico sure didn’t accuse Trump of having lax policies that allowed cartels to expand operations — especially into human trafficking.

Democrats will blame anything on Trump — even things they verifiably caused. It’s truly sad that the Biden White House is less transparent than the Trump Administration, which was always up front with the American people. Biden needs to reverse these policies now — while we still have a country. Watch it below:

Americans are suffering and the pandemic is expensive. Taxpayer dollars in the amount of $2.1 billion could do a lot of good. It could get vaccines to people. Feed the hungry. Help hardworking Americans who can’t work because of damaging pandemic restrictions. Help businesses stay afloat. The possibilities are endless — and of all of these countless options, Democrat New York lawmakers decided to give it to illegal aliens.

Receiving the money isn’t hard. All illegals need to do is prove that they live in New York and that they would otherwise be eligible for COVID stimulus checks if not for their immigration status. Then poof — while Americans starve, they will be handed up to $15,600. There’s even a dummy prize for illegals who can’t provide documentation to back these claims — a payment of $3,200.

This could get quite expensive, too. There are about 750,000 illegals living in New York. If every one of them applies for an receives the absolute minimum payment, this could actually cost as low as $2.4 billion. If they all receive the maximum, this could really be as expensive as $11.7 billion. Fox reports:

New York lawmakers struck a deal this week to establish a $2.1 billion coronavirus relief fund for undocumented immigrants and other unemployed workers who were ineligible for federal aid during the pandemic.

The fund, which was announced as part of a broader $212 billion state budget agreement, will offer one-time payments of up to $15,600 to undocumented immigrants who lost their jobs during the virus-induced crisis.

“This nation’s economy has long been built on the backs of our undocumented workforce, and their essential labor that has helped keep our nation running throughout this pandemic,” New York State Sen. Jessica Ramos, a proponent of the fund, said in a statement.

Americans are suffering. Starving. Dying. But as they cry out for help, Democrats in New York decide to turn their backs on their constituents and give much-needed money to people who aren’t even in the country legally. These are people who have no respect for our laws or way of life. People we should be deporting — but instead, we are rewarding them with handsome cash payments. What a world we live in.

Joe Biden has earned the title of “Migrant President” because of his exceedingly friendly approach to the border — friendly to criminal Mexican gangs, human traffickers, and more. And now according to a Washington Post report, Biden’s “migrants” are sneaking past Border Patrol agents in terrifying numbers.

Imagine 1,000 people every day walking into your house. That’s what is happening at the border, where crossings exceeded 171,000 last month — the highest in 15 years, even higher than when Obama and his open border policies were in place. The number keeps getting worse as the year goes on. In January, only — and we use that word lightly — 78,442 crossed the border. This number was double last year’s number in the same month. The Blaze reports:

The Post reported that while CBP doesn’t claim ever to have interdicted every border crosser, the number of “got aways” has reached unprecedented levels in recent weeks, especially as the number of single adult border crossers has risen. The report stated that 99,000 single adults were caught by agents last month.

CBP defines a “got away” as an unlawful border crosser who is observed entering the country but is not turned back or apprehended by Border Patrol agents. The agency employs sophisticated surveillance technology — including drones, cameras, and solar-powered portable towers — to monitor and track border crossings.

Smuggling organizations, well aware of the fact that Border Patrol agents are already stretched thin, are reportedly splitting up larger groups into smaller ones to further stretch the limited number of agents available to confront border crossers.

One border agent, speaking on condition of anonymity, says smugglers are sending  “small groups of two, three or four, and that quickly occupies all the agents available to go after them.”

“There are maybe 20 groups a day that are observed, but there’s nobody to try to go after them,” the agent says. “They just keep walking until they’re out of sight.”

Barack Obama’s open border policies were bad, but Joe Biden has somehow found a way to make his even worse, creating a massive humanitarian crisis and allowing smugglers and gangs to have the upper hand as they attempt to flood our country with drugs and criminals.

Biden isn’t taking his border crisis at all seriously. Sure, it’s emboldening cartels and helping them expand more into human trafficking. Sure, those who cross the border are testing positive for COVID-19, refusing to quarantine, and infecting our communities. Sure, child sex offenses in a single border region leaped nearly 2,000 percent. And of course, illegals say they are here because of Joe Biden’s reversals of President Trump’s effective border policies. But Biden? He couldn’t be happier.

PBS White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor tried to set up a softball question, telling Biden how good and decent he is and implying that illegals are coming because he’s such an awesome guy. “How do you resolve that tension and how are you choosing which families can stay?” asked Alcindor.

“I guess I should be flattered because people are coming because I’m a nice guy, that’s why this is happening,” Biden replied. He didn’t take responsibility. He didn’t discuss any plans to fix the problem. He just gushed that someone — anyone — likes him, apparently unaware that it’s his lax policies they like.

Joe Biden’s presidency has been a disaster. Thousands are dying daily of COVID-19 with more infected because no one is keeping an eye on “migrants” who test positive. Criminal gangs are flooding the country with drugs and people. His policies are actively endangering children in our communities. And while Democrats scramble to blame Trump for everything — even this — everyone is very well aware that one man is causing all of this chaos: Joe Biden, the “migrant president,” the man who is sitting idly by as our country is destroyed.

Biden can gush all he wants, but his negligence is actively harming our country.

When Joe Biden opened the border, many predicted that it would cause problems. Since this monumentally bad decision, we have seen emboldened cartels operating out in the open, a surge of illegals at the border, COVID-infected “migrants” refusing to quarantine, and all manner of horrors.

Texas Governor Dan Patrick revealed yet another issue Biden’s open border policy is causing — a rise in child sex offenders.

“You know yesterday there was a little girl that drowned in the river,” Patrick said in an interview on Fox News. “Kamala Harris must think that’s amusing to her. “

“She must think that the sex offenders who are coming into this country, who are coming into communities all over this country to assault children is funny to her,” the Governor added. “This is not a laughing matter to our country or to these people or for future victims. So far they won’t call this a crisis. It’s a designed disaster.” Then he dropped some terrifying statistics:

This is their plan… Sex offenders are up 1,967 percent! in just the Del Rio sector in Texas. Sexual offenders are defined by people we already arrested for offenses against children and they’re crossing back two or three times.

The crisis at the border is worse than anyone realizes. Not only are “migrants” flooding into the United States infected with a deadly virus, but they are refusing to quarantine and harming American citizens. At a time when unemployment is at an all-time high, they are taking jobs from Americans. Cartels have moved heavily into the human smuggling business — and this, of course, includes child sex trafficking and drugs. The border is such a mess that 67% of Americans agree that it’s a problem. It’s time to stop blaming Trump and focus on the man who made policy changes to enable this. And that man is Joe Biden.

Watch it below:

A recent interview on ABC will be interesting to anyone who is curious about why there is a flood of illegals at the border. Sure, it’s already well-known that Joe Biden’s failed policies are responsible for illegals making a run for the United States. They admit it. The White House admits it. Mexico admits it.

Americans are very concerned with the border crisis — especially since the Biden Administration is doing nothing to prevent illegals who test positive for COVID from traveling without quarantining. The problem is so pervasive that 73 percent of Americans are worried that the illegals Biden is welcoming with open arms are infecting them with COVID-19.

One such illegal, who may or may not have COVID (it’s not like we are adequately tracking these things, after all) tells ABC News that if President Trump was still around, he would have stayed in Mexico.

“This father who asked we not show his face, traveled to Mexico from Brazil with his wife and three young kids before crossing the border,” reporter Martha Raddatz told viewers before asking the anonymous man, “Would you have tried to do this when Donald Trump was president?”

“Definitely not,” the man said. “We had the chance, you know, but the same violence that’s going on today was there last year.”

He says that President Trump’s policies definitely caused him to make the decision not to try to come to the U.S. “We used to watch the news,” he said. “I definitely wouldn’t do this.”

Raddatz asked a more direct question — one that will make things crystal clear for liberals. “Did you come here because Joe Biden was elected president?” she asked the man.

“Basically. Basically,” he replied. “The main thing was the violence in my country, and the second thing I think was Joe Biden. You know, it’s like it lightened up my hope, you know what I mean?”

Yes. We know what you mean.

Joe Biden’s immigration policies are a failure. Not only is Mexico worried that our current President*’s open border policies are enabling and empowering criminal cartels and drug gangs, but Americans have numerous concerns. Are the people crossing the border criminals? Or, as a recent Rasmussen poll reveals, are they infecting us with COVID?

Recently, a bombshell report highlighted a major issue at the border. “Migrants” coming into our country are testing positive for COVID-19 and aren’t required to quarantine. More than 100 illegals tested positive in a single Texas town. Officials say that they advise those who test positive to quarantine, but many say they do not plan to. Instead, they plan to travel to other parts of the country, infecting Americans along the way. The problem is so pervasive that the Biden Administration won’t even provide a direct answer on whether or not these immigrants are quarantining.

Americans have a right to be concerned. And they are. “Regarding the growing number of migrants at the U.S. border with Mexico, how concerned are you about the government’s ability to handle them while meeting Covid-19 protocols?” the poll asks. A whopping 73 percent of voters say they are “concerned” about the issue. This includes 86 percent of Republicans, 74 percent of Independents, and even 61 percent of Democrats.

Despite Americans’ clear concern with Biden’s ability to handle the border crisis — which has so far been mismanaged in every possible way during his tenure as President — Democrats like Nancy Pelosi choose to blame Biden’s failures on President Trump.

Illegals at the border admit they are coming here because they feel Biden invited them into America with open arms. The source of the problem is clear. If we must wear masks to the grocery store and quarantine if we have COVID, the same standards must be applied to people entering our country. It’s only reasonable.

Everything is President Donald Trump’s fault. When a few private citizens got rowdy at the Capitol on January 6, Democrats and the media blamed Trump despite his pleas for calm — pleas that somehow got him banned from every social media platform except Parler, which Amazon took down. Seemingly everything from a pandemic with global reach to even the border crisis that has resulted from Biden’s failed immigration policies can be blamed on President Trump if one tries hard enough. And Nancy Pelosi? She’s trying pretty hard.

“The — actually, the facts of these, there are more children, about 600, 700 more children, unaccompanied children coming over the border. This is a humanitarian challenge to all of us,” Pelosi said in an interview on Sunday with ABC News. “What the administration has inherited is a broken system at the border and they are working to correct that.”

On Tuesday, President Trump told Americans the truth about what is going on at the border: abject failure. “We ended Catch-and-Release, shut down asylum fraud and crippled the vicious smugglers, drug dealers and human traffickers,” Trump said in a statement. “The Wall, despite horrendous Democratic delays, would have easily been finished by now, and is working magnificently.”

 “Our country is being destroyed at the Southern border, a terrible thing to see!” President Trump adds. And he’s right. Illegals who are swarming across the border say that they are here because of Joe Biden, no one else.

“Biden promised us that everything was going to change,” one woman attempting to come to America told The New York Times. “He hasn’t done it yet, but he is going to be a good president for migrants.” Another says “Biden promised us!” that they would be welcomed into the U.S.

Watch Pelosi’s disaster of an interview below:

“Migrant President” Joe Biden’s failed border policies are cause for concern. Mexico is concerned because he is making cartels, which now operate in the open, are gaining power at the border. Americans are concerned because the flood of illegals are not only stealing away jobs at a time when they are scarce but are testing positive for COVID-19, refusing to quarantine, and are infecting citizens with the virus. The illegals though? They’re concerned with coming to America because they know Biden will bend over backwards to hand our country over to them.

“Biden promised us that everything was going to change,” one “migrant” told The New York Times. “He hasn’t done it yet, but he is going to be a good president for migrants.” Another says “Biden promised us!” that they would be allowed into the U.S.

“He hasn’t done it yet” is something that can be said for many of Joe Biden’s broken promises to Americans. But like leftists, people flooding into our country are keeping the faith. The Daily Wire reports that:

Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers say that some 100,000 foreigners came to the border in February alone, and after weeks of claiming all is well, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on Saturday acknowledged that “record numbers” of foreigners are overwhelming U.S. agencies, prompting the department to call in help from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

“The federal government is responding to the arrival of record numbers of individuals, including unaccompanied children, at the southwest border. Since April 2020, the number of encounters at the border has been rising due to ongoing violence, natural disasters, food insecurity, and poverty in the Northern Triangle countries of Central America,” the DHS said. “The federal government is working around the clock to move unaccompanied children from Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to the Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) care and to place them with a family member or sponsor until their immigration case is adjudicated.  The risks posed by the spread of COVID-19 have made this mission all the more difficult.”

“Joe Biden and the Democrats … they don’t believe in borders. They don’t, therefore, think it is a crisis. They think this is a feature not a bug of their policy. They’ve literally turned detention centers — that are designed to turn people away at our borders — into reception centers. That’s what they’re gonna’ call them. What signal is that going to send? We’ve seen migrants wearing their shirts that say, ‘Biden, let us in.'”

One of Biden’s first acts in office was to do away with President Trump’s Migrant Protection Protocols. These kept illegals in Mexico while they awaited hearings related to their desire to enter the country. Now, we’re right back to the disastrous Obama-era “catch-and-release” that has consistently failed.

It’s too late to stop Biden from being elected. But midterm elections are around the corner. If we can take the House and Senate, we can put a stop to many of his schemes.
