    LEAVE THIS TOO IT is a grotesque affront to our democracy. The immigration policy of this supposedly sovereign nation — our post-EU independence newly established only two years ago — crushed by the hasty, late-night ruling of one judge in a foreign court. And yet it is worse still. 1The immigration policy of this supposedly sovereign nation has been crushed by the hasty, late-night ruling of one judge in a foreign courtCredit: Getty Because the European Court of Human Rights will not even identify the person whose pen struck through the strategy of our elected Government and trumped rulings in our High Court, Appeal Court and Supreme Court. This cannot stand. It must sound the death knell for the ECHR in Britain. This, and years of other insane rulings against the will and interests of our people, were NOT what Churchill imagined when he established it as a bulwark against Nazi-style fascism. We must abandon this Euro court and its Convention. We can enshrine all that is positive in it into a new Bill of Rights. Read more on...
    Open borders advocates – including those who serve in the Biden administration and on Capitol Hill – have been demanding that President Biden end Title 42 since the day he took office during a full-blown pandemic. Title 42 is a public health provision that was invoked by the Trump administration in 2020 at the onset of the COVID pandemic, allowing for the expedited removal of people crossing our borders illegally. While it is impossible to quantify a negative, it is reasonable to assume that preventing significant numbers of people traveling in large groups and coming from countries where vaccination rates were low to nonexistent, saved a lot of lives. Despite its success, many in the Biden administration have always viewed Title 42 not as an essential public health policy, but an obstacle to mass migration. That’s all that matters to them – public health, safety, and national sovereignty be damned. Capitalizing on the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) assessment that the public health threat posed by COVID has abated, they finally got their wish. It was just announced that Title...

    Tucker Carlson has accused a Republican Florida congresswoman of being more concerned with protecting Ukraine's borders than those of the United States, after she backed President Volodymyr Zelensky's appeal for more weapons for his country, but refused to call for U.S. troops to be sent to the Mexican border. Carlson invited Maria Salazar, a former news anchor turned US representative, onto his show after she hit the headlines for her support of a no-fly zone above Ukraine. Salazar, 60, was asked last week by The Grayzone, the website run by controversial former Russia Today journalist Max Blumenthal, whether she supported a no-fly zone.  On Wednesday night Carlson took her to task over her support for the no-fly zone, but Salazar, in a fiery 20-minute debate on his Fox News show, countered that it was not for her to decide Ukrainian policy. Tucker Carlson on Wednesday night had Florida congresswoman Maria Salazar on his show to debate her position on Ukraine Tucker Carlson and Rep Maria Salazar argue over her views on immigration, with him asking:"I just can't help notice the...
    Democrats have rushed to declare Ukraine’s borders sacred while destroying our own borders, former President Donald Trump said Saturday. “What has happened in Ukraine is a catastrophic disaster. But it isn’t really that interesting that so many Democrat politicians in Washington, they seem to be rushing to microphones to declare that Ukraine’s borders are sacred,” he told the audience during remarks given at CPAC in Orlando, Florida. Trump continued: They want to say their borders are sacred, and we feel for Ukraine in so many ways, but Ukraine’s sovereignty must be defended at all costs, they say, even while they’re destroying our own borders and surrendering our own sovereignty. We have a border that’s a catastrophe. We have people coming into our country that we don’t want. They will not be good for our country. Meanwhile, House Democrats have joined with several open borders organizations, some of which are financially tied to billionaire George Soros, in working to stop the surveilling of illegal aliens who crossed the border into the United States, Breitbart News exclusively reported Wednesday. Per the article:...
    President Joe Biden met with American governors at the White House on Monday, but only spoke briefly about migration and the crisis on the southern border. The president acknowledged that border security was an issue, claiming he was “working a lot with neighboring countries” on the migrant crisis. But he stressed the most important thing he wanted to do is fix the foreign countries from which migrants were coming. “There’s a lot to do.” he said. “There’s a lot. I think one of the fundamental things we gotta do in addition to some of the changes we’ll make — we won’t get into them today — is that if we figure out why they’re leaving in the first place.” Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, along with cabinet officials, met with governors from the National Governors Association. The president argued that migrants only seek to sell their belongings and pay smugglers to take them to the United States out of desperation, not because it would be “fun.” “There’s gangs we’re working on, there’s a whole lot of illegal movement, but...
    Reacting to border patrol agents encountering migrants from Turkey, Fox News contributor and former acting Director of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Tom Homan told "Fox & Friends Weekend" that "the whole world knows our is open." TOM HOMAN: Border patrol has encountered people from 150 countries. So the whole world knows our border is open. The whole world knows that they can get into our border, and they can get into the United States. Many of these countries either support or sponsor terrorism. That should scare people. The border patrol has already arrested 16 people on the FBI screening database. WATCH THE FULL VIDEO BELOW: Video This article was written by Fox News staff.
    Over the course of an hour on a recent night, the bus waiting in the Herat station filled with passengers. Mostly young men, they had no luggage, just the clothes on their backs, maybe a bag with some bread and water for the long road ahead of them.  That road is leading them to Iran.  Every day, multiple buses rumble out of Afghanistan’s western city of Herat, carrying hundreds of people to the border. There they disembark, connect with their smugglers and trek for days, sometimes crammed into pickup trucks bumping through wastelands, sometimes on foot through treacherous mountains in the darkness, eluding guards and thieves.  MASS STARVATION LOOMS IN AFGHANISTAN AS HALF THE COUNTRY FACES HUNGER UNDER TALIBAN RULE  Afghans sits in a bus in Herat, Afghanistan, Tuesday, Nov. 23, 2021, for a 300-mile trip south to Nimrooz near the Iranian border.  (AP Photo/Petros Giannakouris) Once in Iran, most will stay there to look for work. But a few hope to go farther.  "We’re going to get to Europe," said Haroun, a 20-year-old sitting in the bus next...
    ROME — Pope Francis launched an appeal for migrants Sunday, insisting that when we think of migrants we should think of their suffering. After having met with members of associations and groups of migrants Saturday, the pope welcomed them in his midday Angelus address in Saint Peter’s Square and urged his hearers to open their hearts to migrants. “How many migrants are exposed, even in these days, to very serious dangers, and how many lose their lives at our borders!” the pontiff exclaimed. “News of the situation in which so many of them find themselves pains me: those who died in the English Channel; those on the borders of Belarus, many of whom are children; those who drown in the Mediterranean.” “So much pain thinking about them,” he added. “Or those who are repatriated to North Africa and are captured by traffickers, who turn them into slaves: they sell women, torture men,” he continued. “Or those who, even this week, they tried to cross the Mediterranean looking for a land of well-being and instead finding a tomb there, and many...
    Morning Joe unanimously agreed with former Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson as they assessed that the Biden administration must do more to get immigration under control. “There is a humanitarian crisis at the southern border,” Joe Scarborough said on Thursday as he spoke to Johnson about how illegal border crossings have fluctuated in number over the years. He assessed that the current border crisis is a buildup from what America saw during the Donald Trump years, but the Biden administration doesn’t understand how many Americans take border control seriously. “They can say ‘oh, they’re racist, they’re this, they’re that.’ No. We believe in borders. We believe in laws. We believe in order…We believe in order at our borders.” After taking a moment to admire his own wit, Scarborough concluded that the border situation is “chaotic” and “only getting worse.” Johnson followed up on that by warning that the current flow of illegal immigrants is unsustainable and that the issue should be treated as an “information sensitive phenomenon.” It reacts sharply to news about changes and enforcement policies in the...
    Much of the outrage over President Joe Biden’s execution of withdrawing U.S. forces from Afghanistan centered on concerns that allies and at-risk Afghans would be left in the country as the Taliban took over. But with troops now gone from the country, a growing number of Republicans are voicing opposition to settling most of the evacuated Afghans in the United States. They criticize the vetting process, warn against “open[ing] our borders to a Taliban-run nation,” and raise concerns about diseases that refugees may bring to the U.S. The Biden administration said that it expects to resettle around 95,000 Afghans in the U.S., most of whom by the end of September. That includes those who have or have applied for Special Immigrant Visas, awarded to translators and others who worked with U.S. forces in Afghanistan, their family members, and others who have been let in on a temporary basis through “humanitarian parole” — a designation different from the technical classification of refugee, making them ineligible for a variety of resettlement services.

    Softest landing IS anyone surprised that illegal migrants risk their lives sailing across the Channel in record numbers when we kick out hotel guests to put them up? Or when the sniggering French help them reach our waters and our border patrols tow them safely into our ports? 1For all Home Secretary Priti Patel’s tough talk, we simply have no deterrentCredit: PA For all Home Secretary Priti Patel’s tough talk, we simply have no deterrent. We handed France millions to police their coast properly and stop the boats. Why isn’t Priti now insisting on it? They have banked the cash and largely given up. So, it seems, have we. How else to explain the eviction of holidaymakers and wedding parties to vacate hotels for illegal arrivals? No wonder they punch the air with joy as they set foot on our soil. They know that, even though they failed to claim asylum by legitimate routes, we will still feed and house them and their chances of deportation are virtually nil. The Tories may think they have problems with Covid,...
    Former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D), running again for Virginia governor, once called for the United States to “shut these borders down” and to deport illegal aliens “taking our jobs” back to “the countries they came from.” In an interview with Southern California public radio station KPCC on January 30, 2007, which Breitbart News has obtained, McAuliffe denounced illegal immigration, demanding U.S. borders be shut down to prevent illegal aliens from taking American jobs. McAuliffe said: We got to shut these borders down, absolutely. These people shouldn’t be coming in this country. We need to enforce our border protections … for the people who have not been here, who have been here illegally, and who have taken advantage of the situation, we need to have a plan to get them back to the countries they came from. [Emphasis added] But more importantly … we got to shut these borders down … I don’t care if you are Democrat or Republican, we all agree you got to shut the borders down. People coming into our nation, taking our jobs … first...
    During a Thursday appearance on Fox News Channel’s “The Faulkner Focus,” Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) called on President Joe Biden to quit “honking” like a goose and get to solving the country’s current challenges. Kennedy questioned why Biden “would like to see the United States of America make love to” Iran while they are “bombing the hell” out of Israel. He then pointed to the ongoing border crisis, saying either the person in charge of solving the crisis has been “day drinking” or the Biden administration truly believes in open borders. “We’re facing a number of challenges — we meaning America,” Kennedy stated. “I would emphasize — not exclusively — but I’ve certainly emphasized the fact that Iran to whom and to which President Biden would like to see the United States of America make love is bombing the hell out of our only true friend in the Middle East, Israel. But of all the problems you’ve listed, my advice to the White House is look, instead of honking on like a goose, solve them. Now, I’m not saying it...
    President Joe Biden’s border and immigration policies are killing Americans by increasing drug trafficking into the U.S. from Mexico, said Sen. Bill Hagerty on Wednesday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow, author of Breaking the News: Exposing the Establishment Media’s Hidden Deals and Secret Corruption. Americans are dying of overdoses of illicit drugs laced with China-sourced fentanyl, Hagerty stated. “China is pumping this fentanyl into Mexico … where it’s manufactured and used as a component of drugs that are that are coming in and killing our kids in Tennessee.” Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) told Breitbart News on Tuesday that 30,000 Americans each year are dying of overdoses from drugs smuggled across the southern border. LISTEN: Hagerty added, “Why did [the Biden administration] remove the Stay in Mexico policy — the Migrant Protection Protocol — that had a dramatic impact of keeping the people that were seeking asylum south of the border? The Mexican government was even protecting the border. Now, they went straight to catch and release.” “They opened the door and it’s a floodgate, right...
    The Biden administration, the mainstream media and immigration advocates are lying to the American people about the extent of the border crisis, Fox News host Laura Ingraham said Monday.  "The entire situation has blown up, with so many people coming in that the border patrol is overwhelmed, and facilities are overflowing and unsanitary," said "The Ingraham Angle" host.  "Failing to report the simple facts about what lax border enforcement means, the media is complicit in the creation of this crisis," she added. "They demonized Trump for years on immigration, with woefully biased and inaccurate reporting, and now they are trying to save their own reputations" by pressing the Biden administration for access to migrant holding facilities.  In that regard, White House press secretary Jen Psaki's recent statement that the White House is "committed to transparency" is a "total and complete lie," according to Ingraham. Video"They could have opened these sites on day one," she said. "Just blur the kids’ faces. Back in May of 2019, the Trump administration allowed ['The Ingraham Angle'] to go into border facilities in Texas, because they believed in transparency,...

    Border bodge IF you’re going to shut your borders, don’t leave them ajar. The worst possible twist in this Covid nightmare is some new variant, resistant to the vaccines on which all our hopes depend. 4A tougher new variant of the virus could prove a fatal final blow to our stricken economyCredit: Reuters ???? Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest news & updates Yes, it’s possible our jabs might still work a bit. They could be tweaked to battle it. But how long would we remain paralysed while that happened? How many more would die in the meantime? A tougher new mutation could prove a fatal final blow to our stricken economy — and collapse the Government. The idea it would only come from one of 30 “high-risk” countries outlined by Home Secretary Priti Patel is absurd. It could arrive from anywhere. We understand the desperation of our airline and tourism industries. But this border fudge, involving travel bans or hotel quarantine solely for arrivals from “red-list” countries, will neither keep us fully safe nor genuinely...
    A very late bar BORIS Johnson is months too late controlling our borders. It has taken a new Brazilian variant finally to spur him into action. Why? ⚠️ Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest news & updates 3Boris Johnson is months too late controlling our bordersCredit: Getty - Pool We accept that once Covid ­was spreading fast here last February the genie was already out of the bottle — and infected foreign visitors may not have made matters much worse. But they certainly didn’t help, did they? It was crazy that while other nations rapidly barred Brits, and others, we did nothing. Arrivals were ushered in, waved aboard public transport, urged to self-isolate and never spoken to again. Now no one gets in without a negative test and ten days’ quarantine. Assuming we finally intend to police that, that’s how it should have been all along. As it is, the double-standards have been farcical: people fined for having coffee with a friend outdoors, while our borders were wide open to a Brazilian variant with the catastrophic...
    FOR decades the British people have repeatedly identified immigration as one of the most important issues facing this country. This was evident during the EU Referendum in 2016 when the British people voted to leave the EU. 1Taking back control of our borders is about addressing Britain's broken approach to tackling illegal migration, says Priti PatelCredit: EPA This Government promised to end free movement, to take back control of our borders and to introduce a new points-based immigration system. Today, we have delivered on that promise. Our new points-based immigration system has opened for applications and free movement with the EU legally ends on 31 December. From today, skilled workers from around the globe will be able to apply to come to the UK if they earn enough points. People gain points from; having a job offer, speaking English to a required standard, and meeting the right salary threshold for the job they are coming here to do. This simple, effective and flexible system will ensure employers can recruit the skilled workers they need, whilst also encouraging employers to train...
    The global medical aid group Doctors Without Borders (MSF) announced on Tuesday that it would end operations in a hospital in a poor neighborhood in Petare, Venezuela, because the socialist regime of dictator Nicolás Maduro has refused to allow its specialists to enter the country. While once the wealthiest country in Latin America, Venezuela is now one of the world’s most dangerous and impoverished, the result of two decades of socialist governance. Under Maduro, Venezuela’s healthcare system has collapsed, lacking access to nearly every basic medication the World Health Organization (W.H.O.) deems necessary to offer proper health services and made up largely of dilapidated, unsanitary hospitals and clinics. Venezuela is also experiencing major shortages of food, fuel, and water, all creating a significant humanitarian crisis that has prompted the largest refugee exodus in the history of the region. Maduro’s regime regularly denies that Venezuela is undergoing any crisis and has limited the ability of international aid groups to help regular Venezuelans. On Monday, state television aired Maduro’s birthday party, which featured multiple musical acts and a large, elaborate Venezuelan flag...

    DAKAR (Reuters) - Senegalese President Macky Sall on Monday said he had decided to lift a state of emergency over COVID-19 to support the struggling economy, which he warned could grow less than 1.1% this year due to fallout from the epidemic. As recently as January, growth was forecast at 6.8% in 2020, but business activity plummeted after borders closed and a curfew and social distancing rules were imposed to curb the virus, which has infected over 6,600 and killed 108. "This is the challenge we must now face: to fight to preserve our lives and our health, and to resume all our productive activities to get our economy back on track," Sall said in a speech to the nation. The state of emergency and a night-time curfew will be lifted as of Tuesday 2300 local time, and air borders will open from July 15 under certain conditions, he said. The authorities have already loosened the curfew and allowed inter-regional travel in response to street protests against the measures earlier in June. Sall said the government was working on an...
    Coronavirus — Fernando Simón, director of the Coordination Center for Health Alerts and Emergencies (CCAES) appeared to to evaluate the data of infections and deaths by coronavirus that occurred in our country. “It has been produced 12 deaths in the last week and 84 diagnosed in the last day. Furthermore, in yesterday there were 3 deaths. “ Likewise, he also wanted to highlight that “The increase in detected cases is due to the increasing number of asymptomatic cases.” “Now we are still in a period when the virus is being transmitted. We are identifying quite a bit. The goal is that week by week we can increase the percentage of cases whose origin we know. “ Active outbreaks Simon confirmed that “We have 51 unclosed outbreaks, but many of them are of no interest. We have special interest in 11 outbreaks, considering those of Huesca as one. These are figures that will change rapidly in the coming days. We have one in Valladolidthose of Lleidathe of Aragonthe of Malaga, two family outbreaks in Murcia and GaliciaBecause of the volume...
    Trump sent in goons from the Bureau of Prisons, and National Guardsmen from as far away from Utah to take over her town. Then he attacked her on Twitter. In Episode 15 of The New Abnormal, The Daily Beast’s podcast for a world gone off the rails, Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser tells Molly Jong-Fast and Rick Wilson what it was like to be under siege from the President of the United States — and how she tried to resist. “We have spent the last week trying to defend our borders, defend our autonomy, and make sure protesters could be in the city peacefully,” Bowser says. Then the “siege” of Lafayette Park happened. “We don't really know for sure who was in charge, who gave the order, what the chain of command was,” she says. What she does know is that she was attacked by the President on Twitter and he lost: “Not to sound like I'm in the kindergarten, but he started it.” Molly also talks about the GOP’s ability to “seize defeat out of the jaws of defeat”...
