    LIZ Truss will vow to slash net migration - but has no plans to bring back a cap on numbers. Allies of the PM and Home Secretary said the pair were in agreement that the numbers of people coming to Britain were still too high. 1Liz Truss vows to slash net migration - but has no plans to bring back a cap on numbersCredit: EPA Net migration is currently running at around 230,000 a year. David Cameron set a target to get it down to the tens of thousands, but this was downgraded by Boris Johnson. It comes after backbench Tories hit out at reports the PM wants to increase migration numbers in a major shake up. Home Secretary Suella Braverman and other Cabinet ministers only want to loosen the rules if it helps boost GDP.

    Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei has not spoken to U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris since January and says “greater communication” is needed between Guatemala and the United States to address the countries’ ongoing migration crisis. Giammattei told Breitbart News during a wide-ranging interview in Washington, DC, on Tuesday that the last communication he had with Harris — a phone call in January — was not focused on migration. “She told me she didn’t want me to appoint my attorney general. We didn’t talk about human trafficking. That was the only time that I spoke to her since she went to Guatemala, and the topic was not immigration,” Giammattei said. The president added, “I do think that we need greater communication between the government of the United States and our government at least.” U.S. President Joe Biden assigned Harris to lead efforts to address the “root causes” of migration in March 2021 in response to surging numbers of migrants illegally entering the U.S. through Mexico. Harris said at a CEO Summit in June, well over one year after Biden appointed her as border czar, that the...
    LOS ANGELES (AP) — President Joe Biden and other Western Hemisphere leaders are set to announce on Friday what is being billed as a roadmap for countries to host large numbers of migrants and refugees. “The Los Angeles Declaration” is perhaps the biggest achievement of the Summit of the Americas, which was undercut by differences over Biden’s invitation list. Leaders of Mexico and several Central American countries sent top diplomats instead after the U.S. excluded Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela. A set of principles to be announced Friday on the summit’s final day includes legal pathways to enter countries, aid to communities most affected by migration, humane border management and coordinated emergency responses, according to a senior U.S. official who briefed reporters ahead of an official announcement. It is a blueprint already being followed to a large extent by Colombia and Ecuador, whose right-leaning leaders were warmly greeted at the summit for welcoming many of the 6 million people who have left Venezuela in recent years. President Guillermo Lasso of Ecuador last week announced temporary status for Venezuelans in his country,...
    ROME (AP) — Five European Union nations on the Mediterranean who fear possible waves of refugees driven by hunger out of Africa called Saturday for an end to the EU’s “voluntary” solidarity on migrants and a better way to redistribute the burden of caring for them. The Interior ministers from Italy, Cyprus, Greece, Malta and Spain wrapped up two days of talks in Venice amid worries that the blockade of Ukraine grain exports due to Russia’s invasion could see huge numbers of refugees from Africa flooding southern Europe. Cypriot Interior Minister Nicos Nouris told reporters that robust, common EU policy is needed on migration. “Solidarity is not a slogan, nor can it be void of substance,” Nouris said. Past EU policies in which member countries could offer to receive some of the hundreds of thousands of migrants landing in Italy, Greece and other southern shores proved grossly inadequate. Many EU countries didn’t step forward. Others, even with they did pledge to receive modest numbers of some of the hundreds of thousands of migrants rescued from smugglers’ unseaworthy boats,...
    Pro-migration advocates are telling Democrats and reporters that fewer migrants will be registered at the border each month once the Title 42 anti-disease border rule is removed. The implausible claims come as President Joe Biden is being tugged in two directions. Democratic legislators and the voters want him to keep the Title 42 border barrier past its scheduled expiration date of May 23 — but his business and progressive allies want him to remove the barrier. “The administration’s decision to roll back Title 42 is wrong and reckless,” Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) told Politico on April 20. His voice is important because he is the likely Democratic candidate in the Ohio Senate race this year. Biden’s pro-migration border chief, Alejandro Mayorkjas, is using the Title 42 barrier to exclude only about one-half of the economic migrants who arrive at the U.S. southern border. But he busses most of the rejected migrants back to Mexico, instead of flying them home. This lax policy allows the rejected migrants to try again and again to sneak past the border guards. Mayorkas’s repeat crossers inflate...
    A British migration think tank has warned that if the government is able to stop releasing illegal migrant data, numbers will continue to increase without the public’s knowledge “for months”. Migration Watch UK warned that the British Home Office “plans to stop issuing daily arrival figures”, opting instead to release “totals on a much less frequent basis”. The think tank highlighted the government is planning to do this despite — or perhaps because of — the Home Office forecasting that 2022 will be the worst year for mass-illegal migrant English Channel crossings since the ‘major incident’ was declared in 2018, and have labelled the Home Office’s censorious plans as “a huge affront to transparency, accountability and democracy”. Migration Watch claims Home Office sources have told them that “the government is allegedly expecting” illegal migrant arrivals of “between 65,000 and 90,000” in 2022, with arrivals in 2022 so far amounting to “six times the total arriving in the first month of 2021”, itself already a record year. Currently, the government releases daily crossing figures, which includes those picked up by charities as well as UK...
    The UK’s Office for National Statistics has predicted that the country will see 5.6 million migrants settle in the country over the next decade, propping up a population that would otherwise be falling due to deaths outstripping births. 5.6 million people will immigrate long term to the UK, according to figures released by the Office for National Statistics on Wednesday. The government body also reported that it expected more deaths than births to occur in the country within the same period, meaning that the nation’s overall expected growth rate of 3.2 per cent will be entirely fueled by inward migration. According to the released projections, while 5.6 million will come to the United Kingdom in the coming decade, 3.4 million people are also expected to leave. The balance — or ‘net migration’ — of those entering the country to live long term over the next ten years, according to the report, will therefore be 2.2 million. James Robards of the Office for National Statistics said the figures had changed from previous estimates because they’d adjusted their assumptions of future fertility...
    President Joe Biden’s progressive deputies are boasting about their efforts to fast-track foreigners into Americans’ jobs, society, and voting booths. “I’m immensely proud of the USCIS workforce … [for] enacting numerous operational and policy changes in response to executive orders from the Biden-Harris Administration,” said a statement from Ur Jaddou, the director of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services agency within Alejandro Mayorkas’ Department of Homeland Security. The USCIS agency processes foreigners’ requests for work permits, green cards, and citizenship. The agency helps people overseas for U.S. jobs, it helps migrants who illegally sneak over the border, and it helps migrants who are released into the United States by Mayorkas’ customs and border officials. From October 2020 to the end of September 2021, according to Jaddou, the agency provided citizenship t0 855,000 migrants and rewarded 172,000 people with green cards for taking jobs needed by Americans. The immigration system is an “engine of American strength,” Jaddou claimed, promising “In the upcoming year, we will continue to serve the [foreign] public with compassion and reflect America’s promise as a nation of...
                 The U.S. Census Bureau on Tuesday published new population estimates and ranked Tennessee as being one of the top 10 states for numeric growth between 2020 and 2021. The Census Bureau also reported that the Volunteer State grew in population, however slightly, between April 2020 and July 2021. Tennessee, in April 2020, had 6,910,840 residents, but by July of this year that number had increased to 6,975,218. “According to the U.S. Census Bureau’s Vintage 2021 national and state population estimates and components of change released today, the population of the United States grew in the past year by 392,665, or 0.1 percent, the lowest since the nation’s founding,” according to that agency’s report. Since April 1, 2020, the nation’s population increased from 331,449,281 to 331,893,745, a gain of 444,464, or 0.13 percent, the report said. “The South, with a population of 127,225,329, was the most populous of the four regions (encompassing 38.3 percent of the total national population) and was the only region that had positive net domestic migration of 657,682 (the movement of people from one area...
    CALAIS, France (AP) — Children and pregnant women were among at least 27 migrants who died when their small boat sank in an attempted crossing of the English Channel, a French government official said Thursday. Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin also announced the arrest of a fifth suspected trafficker thought to have been involved in what was the deadliest migration tragedy to date on the dangerous sea lane. In their immediate response to the sinking, French authorities gave slightly differing figures on the numbers of dead, from between 27 to 31. The figure that Darmanin used Thursday was 27. Darmanin said authorities are working to determine the nationalities of victims from the sinking on Wednesday. Two survivors were treated for hypothermia. One is Iraqi, the other Somali, Darmanin said on RTL radio. “Pregnant women, children died,” he said, without detailing their numbers. Darmanin on Wednesday had already announced the arrest of four suspected traffickers on suspicion of being linked to the sunken boat. He told RTL that a fifth suspected trafficker was picked up overnight. ___ Follow AP’s...
    WARSAW—The satellite view of the Polish-Belarusian frontier shows a dense forest belt. What is otherwise a spectacularly beautiful borderland and a popular outing spot for respite and wildlife watching is now stage to yet another spectacle of demonizing and securitizing migration. According to Polish authorities, some 4,500 mostly Iraqis and Syrians have tried to illegally cross the border from Belarus since the beginning of this month. Real numbers may be even higher. Fewer migrants, although still counted in the thousands, have crossed to Lithuania and Latvia. From the start of the year, Polish border guards have accepted close to 5,000 applications for asylum—more than twice as many as the year before. The standard procedure for most migrants is to get a tourist package for $3,000-$7,000, Belarusian visa included, and safely fly via Turkey or Syria to Minsk. They would then try to cross the border with Poland to get to Germany or further west in the EU. In response to the spiraling number of migrants, Poland has now raised a fence and deployed some 12,000 troops to the border, even...
    Migrant apprehensions in Mexico hit the highest number ever recorded in a single-month period in September, the latest available official data reveals. Still, a record number of migrants managed to make it to the U.S southern border in September, the last month of the government’s 2021 fiscal year. The result is that U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents interdicted an unprecedented 1.7 million-plus migrants along the southern border in the 12-month period ending on September 30, known as the fiscal year. Analysts have historically used apprehension data as a rough measure of migration flows to the U.S. The data does not account for illegal migrants who successfully make it into the United States. Citing the most recent data released by the Mexican government late last month, Adam Isacson from the Washington Office on Latin America (WOLA) wrote on Twitter, “[Mexico] updated its official migration data today. In September, Mexico’s migration forces shattered their previous single-month record for apprehensions of migrants. 41,225 apprehensions last month, up from the previous high of 32,155 set in August.” #Mexico updated its official migration data today.

    Four in ten French say they would like to see immigration numbers reduced to zero, according to a poll released this week as all leading French presidential candidates adopt tough migration policies. The poll, conducted by the CSA Institute for CNews, was released on Thursday and states that 41 per cent of those who took part in the poll were in favour of stopping all immigration to France, both illegal and legal immigration. French over the age of 65 are the most likely to support a total immigration ban at 45 per cent, while young people 18 to 24 are also represented highly, with 42 per cent agreeing with a migration ban, CNews reports.

    One million migrants have crossed the border since October, according to a June 29 report by CNN. CNN reported: More than 1 million migrants have been arrested after illegally crossing the US-Mexico border since last October, according to two US Department of Homeland Security [DHS] officials, surpassing the 2019 border crisis tally with three months still left in the fiscal year. The June 2021 numbers have not been finalized, CNN reported. But the numbers are likely to reach almost 190,000, despite the rising temperature, according to CNN’s report: In June, more than 6,300 people on average have been encountered crossing the border every day, according to one official, citing the 21-day average. The southern numbers do not include the annual steady of roughly 1 million legal immigrants, the roughly 800,000 temporary visa workers, and the people who overstay their legal visas. The one million number also does not include the 250,000 migrants who have sneaked across the border, according to agency reports provided to Breitbart. In May, 180,000 migrants were caught crossing the southern border. Most were sent back to...
    A report from the Migration Observatory at the University of Oxford has estimated that the Office for National Statistics (ONS) undercounted net EU migration to the United Kingdom by an average of 93,000 per year between 2012 and 2020. The study estimated that, in total, net migration to Britain was 15 per cent higher than previous estimates from the ONS, with many more people entering the country than initially believed. The discrepancy between the former figures and the reality came as a result of the structural problems inherent in the previous immigration counting system — the International Passenger Survey — which was in effect until recently. Under the old system, the government would compile an estimate of immigration based on a voluntary clipboard survey of 250,000 arrivals per year at some points of entry to the country, rather than actually counting the number of people coming in and out of the country. Updated methods still refrain from doing an actual tally but include supposedly more reliable means of estimating numbers, such as tracking taxes and benefits. Under the new counting system, the...
    President Joe Biden’s half-open, half-closed border is creating chaos south of the border and is pulverizing his support among Latino and independents likely voters north of the border. Biden’s policies have gotten him 64 percent disapproval among independents, and 55 percent disapproval among Latinos, according to a Quinnipiac poll of 1,237 adults, conducted April 8-12. Just 22 percent of swing-voting independents and 27 percent of Latinos support Biden’s policy to extricate hundreds of thousands of migrants from their countries into a Hunger Games-style obstacle course, so they can be used in the U.S. economy. GOP voters strongly oppose these policies, so the Quinnipiac numbers translate into a national disapproval rate of 55 percent, with just 29 percent approval for Biden’s immigration policy: Quinnipiac Poll Biden also got bad news from a second poll by Morning Consult and Politico. The second poll showed that his border policy has only 10 percent strong support from political independents and only 16 percent strong support from people who are neither white nor black. The poll’s panel of 501 political independents showed 14 percent “somewhat disapprove”...
    Customs and Border Protection as of this week is encountering an average of 565 unaccompanied migrant children per day, Fox News has confirmed, a stark increase from the number it encountered as recently as last month and earlier under the Trump administration.  NBC News first reported the spike in migrant children crossing the southwestern border without adult supervision. The 565 unaccompanied children being encountered by law enforcement per day are up from 313 per day last month. The increase is even more striking compared to 2019, when border agents encountered 76,020 unaccompanied children for an average of just over 208 per day. Fox News has exclusively obtained two photos showing a US Border Patrol temporary outdoor processing site in Mission, Texas, in the Rio Grande Valley Sector.

    EXCLUSIVE: More than 50 House Republicans on Tuesday warned President Biden of a brewing "crisis" of illegal migration at the southern border amid indications of a surge in numbers -- just as Biden has forged forward with a number of policies limiting border security and interior enforcement."This is not a political game -- we implore you not to let ideology blind you administration to the need to secure the border, to defend Americans, and to prevent another cartel-empowering humanitarian crisis," the letter, obtained by Fox News, says.

Meanwhile, the number of unaccompanied alien children is approaching 300 a day. "CBP hasn’t seen numbers like this...
    The British government is “flying blind” on immigration, suggests a new report from the University of Oxford, with an extra 1.25 million people having “appeared” in statistics without a reasonable explanation. The ancient university’s Migration Observatory found that Labour Force Survey data suggested a fall in the migrant population of almost 900,000 in 2020 — but accompanied by an implausible rise in the UK-born population of some 1.25 million, according to the Telegraph. Noting significant changes in the way the state has attempted to gather statistics as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, the Observatory hinted that the figures, which come out as Boris Johnson’s administration is attempting to roll out a new post-Brexit immigration system, are no longer reliable. “We don’t know who’s arriving or leaving, who’s here, or where they are,” the Observatory said when sharing its findings on social media. “This raises some serious challenges for post-COVID planning.” “There is absolutely massive uncertainty about what is going on with migration at the moment, because all the data sources we normally use have been hugely disrupted,” added Migration Observatory...
    An exodus sparked by high taxes, coronavirus lockdowns, and regulations has driven California’s population growth rate to a record low, which is projected to cost the state a seat in Congress and an electoral vote. According to a population estimate this week, 135,600 more people fled the Golden State than moved there, which marks only the 12th time since 1900 that the state saw a net migration loss. It is the third-largest drop recorded. “This is a real sea change in California, which used to be this state of pretty robust population growth,” said Hans Johnson, a demographer at the Public Policy Institute of California, regarding the net migration loss, which has now occurred three years in a row. “It hasn’t been for some time now. But it’s now gotten to the point where the state is essentially not growing population-wise at all.” Johnson added that the population decrease could cause the state to lose a seat in Congress as well as an Electoral College vote for the first time. The state did not gain any seats following the...
    While no authority has listed the exact number of illegal migrants in Sweden, the head of the Border Police has claimed the number is well above the established 12,000 migrants wanted for staying illegally. Patrik Engström, head of the border police at the National Operations Department (Noa) stated that border police have no active measures to find migrants who have gone underground and disappeared off the radar of authorities. “We register those wanted. If tips come in, we follow them up. Otherwise, we work with our regular control work where we find some of them,” he told the Swedish news service TT. In 2015, Sweden saw 163,000 migrants arrive during the height of the migrant crisis and 47,000 were rejected for residency but the Swedish Migration Board has no idea exactly how many still reside in the country illegally.

    Record numbers of illegal immigrants crossing the English Channel are “not a threat” to Britain, and could even be a boon for taxpayers, the United Nations (UN) has claimed. Speaking to the Commons Home Affairs Committee on Wednesday, representatives from the international body argued that Britain should open new channels that would allow many more low and no-skilled third world migrants to enter the country legally in order to deter individuals from paying people traffickers. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees’ (UNHCR) representative in the UK, Rossella Pagliuchi-Lor, told MPs that the thousands of people who have broken into Britain in recent months were not a problem. Instead, she insisted that the only “dangers” of the situation were risks to the lives of migrants travelling across the Channel in dinghies, along with “a different sort of risk”, which she said was critical media reporting of the phenomenon. Taking aim at “the sort of narrative that we’re seeing in the media and elsewhere that suggests these arrivals by boat present… a danger, a threat to the UK, when in fact...
