Foreign invaders ride the Taxpayer Express

Nonprofit organizations and travel agencies are helping illegal aliens move around the country, in violation of federal law. Even worse: Americans are footing the bill.

The next time you’re fondled at the airport by a TSA agent, look around. You may very well see foreign nationals ushered through security without proper documentation and disregarding every TSA rule. While Joe Biden pretends that millions of invaders from 150 countries are a natural occurrence, his administration is using taxpayer-funded nongovernmental organizations to disperse tens of thousands of them throughout the country.

This cannot be allowed to continue. Why won’t Republicans pledge to put an end to it by refusing to fund one more penny of this scheme with the budget deadline looming?

It’s time for House Republicans to refuse to fund these organizations and well past time for states to begin indicting the leaders of these nonprofits for violating state and federal laws.

In September, the Center for Immigration Studies obtained partial data showing that 221,000 illegal aliens were flown into our airports in the first three quarters of the year. The government enlists NGOs to help with logistics and even to advertise in foreign countries how to navigate the U.S. immigration and asylum process.

For example, Miles4Migrants and Welcome.US have partnered with American Express Global Business Travel, “to make travel more accessible to Cubans, Haitians, Venezuelans, Ukrainians, and Nicaraguans seeking refuge in the United States.”

These are not organizations that operate on the fringe of the law and society. Miles4Migrants’ honorary co-chairmen include Barack and Michelle Obama, George W. and Laura Bush, and Bill and Hillary Clinton.

Breitbart recently reported that “several regular travelers” at Tucson International Airport “were politely told to exit the special ‘migrant security line’ because they were not noncitizens.” The NGOs provide “noncitizens” with transportation, logistical support, and a map of the layout of the airport. TSA, in turn, established a special line whereby the invaders could fly without proper documentation. I’m sure they are not getting screened like we are.

A recent report from a Florida grand jury on illegal immigrant smuggling noted that taxpayer-funded NGOs have an incentive to encourage more illegal aliens in order to bolster their budgets.

“The river of accountability-free money has absolutely polluted the entire process,” noted the grand jury Governor Ron DeSantis empaneled in 2022. “Given the breadth of our mandate, we focused on transnational criminal organizations and illegal immigration. … We discovered, however, that there are also ‘legal’ organizations who appear to be misusing federal contract monies and their ‘nonprofit’ status in order to abet the process, and likely the actors, responsible for the illegal activity we are describing.”

One would think that if taxpayers are funding groups to aid border security, they’d use the money to dissuade would-be migrants from embarking on such a dangerous journey. Instead, they advertise the trip to the world’s poor and benighted people and facilitate every step.

The grand jury’s 146-page report notes how the nonprofits “provide cash cards, cell phones, and transport vehicles and what amount to safari-style guide maps through portions of jungle and across deadly terrain, increasing the number of individuals who thus elect to make the journey and enabling Transnational Criminal Organizations to amass fabulous wealth and a bottomless pool of victims in the process.”

The panel recommended a separate grand jury be convened to focus solely on the criminal activity of the NGOs.

The crux of the report’s findings is that Americans are sending billions of dollars to insidious groups responsible for the human, financial, cultural, and drug trafficking misery that the government has a duty to stop. We have been giving $2.7 billion to NGOs every year just to pay for the resettlement of unaccompanied alien children.

Federal law makes a felon of anyone who “knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States in violation of law, conceals, harbors, or shields from detection, or attempts to conceal, harbor, or shield from detection, such alien in any place.”

The law also makes a criminal of anyone who “encourages or induces an alien to come to, enter, or reside in the United States, knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such coming to, entry, or residence is or will be in violation of law” or anyone who “engages in any conspiracy to commit any of the preceding acts, or aids or abets the commission of any of the preceding acts.”

Section 3 of the Immigration Act of 1891 made it a felony to “assist or encourage the importation or migration of any alien by promise of employment” through advertisements. Any alien who came in due to such advertisements was deemed inadmissible, and that law was designed to prevent people from encouraging them.

Earlier this year, in United States v. Hansen, the Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of the law, noting it does not outlaw advocacy of illegal immigration but rather aiding and abetting illegal immigration through actions.

It’s time for House Republicans to refuse to fund these organizations and well past time for states to begin indicting the leaders of these nonprofits for violating state and federal laws.

The way to stop the Biden invasion is to put his NGO allies behind bars.

Biden’s use of NGOs is eerily similar to Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko’s effort to stage thousands of Middle Easterners in Minsk as a means of destabilizing the rest of Europe. After thousands of imported migrants from Minsk crossed into Poland and the rest of the EU in 2021, EU Commissioner Ursula von der Leyen correctly identified his stratagem as a “hybrid attack” instead of a “migration crisis.” Ironically, she conveyed this very complaint about Lukashenko to Joe Biden himself!

European countries have already accused Belarus of working with travel agents to invade Poland and Lithuania. This is essentially what Biden is doing — except, unlike Lukashenko, he is staging an invasion against his own people.

As we watch the chaos and mayhem continue on our southern border and beyond, only one question matters: Will Americans continue funding our own demise in next month’s Homeland Security budget bill? There is only one right answer.
