If voters give the GOP a House majority in November, then GOP legislators will investigate and expose the migrant smuggling networks funded by President Joe Biden’s administration, said Rep. Lance Gooden (R-TX).
“Many of these migrants are being aided, in fact, by [U.S.] nonprofits who are using our tax dollars to do the aiding and helping them across, helping them get on airplanes without documentation, helping them to evade court hearing and helping them to burrow into society and evade any questions from law enforcement,” Gooden told Mark Krikorian, director of the Center for Immigration Studies.
“It is just stunning to me that we are giving money to anybody that’s not a U.S. citizen — much less someone who’s come into this country the wrong way,” added Gooden, who was first elected in 2018 to Texas’s 5th district, east of Dallas.
When the migrants are south of the U.S. border, they are being supported by the United Nations and Mexican-based aid groups, Gooden said:
The United Nations … is receiving support from the US government, among others. And [it is] helping sponsor these caravans [of migrants], they’re giving them debit cards, providing them with financial assistance throughout their journey to the U.S. border.

But the migrants who cross the U.S. border also get support from a U.S -based network of Non-Government Organizations [NGOs], he said:
When the [migrants] get to the border, they try to claim asylum status, which has to be determined through a proper hearing. But during the time that they are waiting for their trial day, they are aided by these NGOs.
You’ve heard me talk about Catholic Charities, Jewish Family Council, [and] the Lutherans [which] are involved. What they do is they go to the border and take these asylum seekers from [the Department of Homeland Security, DHS]. They’re paid by [DHS] to provide aid. So there’s an incentive to bring in more people because the more people that the Catholic Charities [or] the Jewish Family Council bring in, the more money they get from the U.S. government. It is a way that the administration has helped to aid — and in fact fund — the invasion of our nation.

If the GOP gains a majority in Congress for 2023, it will be able to investigate the NGOs’ activities and their funding sources, he predicted:
What they’re doing is encouraging human trafficking, they’re emboldening the cartels, and they are making the problem much worse. I believe it’s criminal … I think that is important to the American people to know that these groups — who in the past have done really great work — are now in cahoots with the government with the United Nations and indirectly with the cartels, and they’re bringing people across our border and shuttling them across the United States …
I believe that the [GOP] leadership of our U.S. House is keenly aware that the biggest issue to the voters — aside from inflation — is immigration … So I’m very confident that the leaders of our house will hold hearings [in 2023] … We’re already making preparations — not measuring the drapes! — to be prepared to govern when we take over in a year.
A GOP-run majority in the House will be able to control the agencies’ spending and impeach homeland security chief Alejandro Mayorkas or even President Joe Biden, Gooden said:
Come January, though, when we are in power, we will do whatever the oversight role of Congress requires to ensure that this administration is held accountable. If they’ve broken the law, whether it’s a secretary or the President himself, if impeachment is the answer, then impeachment will be the action. I have full confidence in the Republican majority … to execute the will of the American people and the mandate that I believe they’ll give us in November.
But getting President Biden and the Senate Democrats to curb migration may require painful political compromises, he predicted:
If Republicans control the House, and the President and Democrats still control the Senate and the White House, they’ve got to work with us to get whatever spending package they want. There would be a time when I believe Republicans will come together and say, “What are the one or two things that we just absolutely have to have? And if the Democrats will cave and give it to us, could we swallow whatever other bitter pills are in this spending bill?” That’s a conversation I’ll have to have with my constituents.
Migration moves money, and since at least 1990, the federal government has tried to extract people from poor countries so they can serve U.S. investors as cheap workers, government-aided consumers, and high-density renters in the U.S. economy.
That economic strategy has no stopping point, and it is harmful to ordinary Americans because it cuts their career opportunities and their wages while it also raises their housing costs.

Extraction migration also curbs Americans’ productivity, shrinks their political clout, and widens the regional wealth gaps between the Democrats’ cities and coastal states and the Republicans’ heartland districts. The economic strategy also kills many migrants, separates families, and damages the economies of the home countries.
An economy built on extraction migration also radicalizes Americans’ democratic, compromise-promoting civic culture and allows wealthy elites to ignore despairing Americans at the bottom of society.
Unsurprisingly, a wide variety of polls do show deep and broad opposition to labor migration and the inflow of temporary contract workers into jobs sought by young U.S. graduates. This opposition is growing, anti-establishment, multiracial, cross-sex, non-racist, class-based, bipartisan, rational, persistent, and recognizes the solidarity that Americans owe to one another.

Researchers could be homing in on universal flu vaccine
An experimental flu vaccine that targets all known strains of the flu virus could provide broad protection against infection, new research suggests.
Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania said that a vaccine using the same technology as Pfizer-BioNTech's and Moderna's COVID-19 vaccines "dramatically" reduced signs of illness and protected against death in initial tests using mice and ferrets, indicating that researchers could be a step closer to unlocking a universal flu vaccine.
MORE THAN 6 MILLION PEOPLE HAVE ALREADY GOTTEN THE FLU THIS SEASON: CDC
"The idea here is to have a vaccine that will give people a baseline level of immune memory to diverse flu strains, so that there will be far less disease and death when the next flu pandemic occurs,” said Scott Hensley, a professor of microbiology at the University of Pennsylvania's Perelman School of Medicine, who led the study.
In the tests, the vaccine elicited high levels of antibodies in mice for all 20 strains of the flu.
While the universal flu vaccine wouldn't eliminate seasonal flu cases, researchers say it could provide broad protection against infection and severe illness for different strains, helping prevent the next flu pandemic. The most recent flu pandemic was in 2009. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimated that over 60 million people got the H1N1 virus between 2009-2010.
Typically, seasonal flu vaccines target four strains of the flu that scientists identify will be the most likely to spread and cause illness in the upcoming year, though not every year's flu vaccine has been a good match to the dominant strains circulating, meaning the vaccine is less effective at preventing infection.
The promising results from the animal tests have prompted researchers to move forward with human clinical trials. If researchers are successful in developing a universal flu vaccine that is effective in humans, the same approach could be applied to vaccines for other viruses down the line, including the coronavirus.
