Joe Biden and Illegal Immigration – National Review

During last summer’s Democratic debate in Detroit, MSNBC moderator Savannah Guthrie posed the following to the candidates: “This is a show of hands question, and hold them up so people can see. Raise your hand if your government plan would provide coverage to undocumented immigrants.”

Every candidate, including Joe Biden, raised a hand, a stark visual of progressive profligacy. Social media instantly erupted with proclamations of electoral doom for Democrats.

Perhaps recognizing the blunder, Biden regularly tries to downplay the financial impact of providing health care coverage to masses of illegal immigrants. He told Univision’s Jorge Ramos that illegal immigrants are a “gift”: they’re “the reason why our economy is growing.” Suggesting that illegal immigrants pay more into the U.S. Treasury than they receive, Biden’s platform notes that “in 2015, the IRS collected $23.6 billion from 4.4 million workers without Social Security numbers, many of whom were undocumented.”

The Center for Immigration Studies, using data adduced by the National Academy of Sciences, released an analysis of the net cost of services to illegal immigrants after taking into account the taxes paid by such immigrants. Contrary to Biden’s implication that illegal immigrants enhance the public fisc, the CIS study estimates that the net lifetime financial drain on public coffers per illegal immigrant is $65,272. The study notes:

One way to think about the above estimates is that for every million illegal immigrants in the country, there is a lifetime fiscal drain of $65.3 billion on public coffers. If we assume there are 11.43 million illegal immigrants in the country, then the total financial costs they create during their lifetimes using the net present value concept is $746.3 billion.

That’s real money. And that’s before Biden extends health-care coverage to illegal immigrants.

La insaciable voracidad tributaria de los gobiernos nacionales y municipales en el país se está convirtiendo en una amenaza creciente contra cualquier recuperación, por pequeña que sea, de la economía venezolana, ya que en el último mes se ha registrado una verdadera oleada de incrementos desproporcionados de impuestos y tarifas de servicios públicos.
Un ejemplo concreto, son los municipios del este del Área Metropolitana de Caracas, donde las tarifas de Aseo Urbano se han incrementado alrededor de 10 veces, a tal punto que una oficina mediana puede llegar a pagar más de 90 dólares al mes, por este concepto.
Bajo el amparo de la promoción del Petro, como moneda convertible, más de 80% de las Alcaldías ha dolarizado sus impuestos, ahora expresados en el token criptográfico gubernamental, con incrementos que van entre 1.000% y 4.000% de la mayoría de los tributos, junto con la imposición de multas en divisas estadounidenses, que pueden llegar a miles de dólares.

Supreme Court allows Trump to return immigrants to Mexico while they await asylum – NBC News

The Supreme Court said Wednesday that the Trump administration can continue its practice of returning asylum-seekers to Mexico along the entire southern border while immigration authorities process their claims.

In a brief, unsigned order, the court said enforcement can go on while the justices decide whether to hear an appeal of lower court rulings that declared the program illegal. Only Justice Sonia Sotomayor said she would have denied the permission.

The policy, known as the Migrant Protection Protocols, or “Remain in Mexico,” was launched in January 2019. During the 13 months it was fully in operation, the Department of Homeland Security returned more than 60,000 immigrants to Mexico while they awaited word on their asylum applications.

But in response to challenges from civil liberties groups, a federal court said enforcement of the program would be blocked in California and Arizona by mid-March.

Urging the Supreme Court to allow enforcement while the government appeals lower court orders shutting it down, the Justice Department said the program “has been an enormously effective and indispensable tool” in efforts to “address the migration crisis on our southwest border.”

When the program was temporarily halted nationwide by court order, the Department of Homeland Security faced chaos, the government told the Supreme Court, with a surge of migrants arriving at ports of entry all along the border.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, based in San Francisco, ruled March 4 that the program violated federal law and that enforcement would have to end in California and Arizona on Thursday unless the Supreme Court issued an order allowing it to continue while the government prepares an appeal.

The court said uncontested evidence “establishes that non-Mexicans returned to Mexico under the MPP risk substantial harm, even death, while they await adjudication of their applications for asylum.”

Because New Mexico and Texas are outside the 9th Circuit, the appeals court ruling did not apply in those states, and the program has continued there.

The American Civil Liberties Union urged the Supreme Court to block enforcement of the policy, saying asylum-seekers returned to Mexico “are exposed to kidnapping, assault, rape, and other violent attacks on account of their being non-Mexican migrants.” It also said the policy violates federal requirements by exposing migrants seeking asylum to possible persecution or torture if they are returned to Mexico.

“The court of appeals unequivocally declared this policy to be illegal. The Supreme Court should, as well. Asylum-seekers face grave danger and irreversible harm every day this depraved policy remains in effect,” Judy Rabinovitz, special counsel in the ACLU Immigrants’ Rights Project, said after the Supreme Court’s ruling.
