Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar made a startling point this week. “We have in the range of 40 million illegal aliens in our country,” he said. “Using trains, buses and planes the US could deport 115,000 illegal aliens every week.” The provenance of his 40 million figure is unclear, but the larger truth is very clear. We have well more than 11 million illegals here, the claim is—and thousands are being added every day. Joe Biden is remaking the country with open borders. Too many Republicans simply focus on the border and ignore the millions of illegals already here. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas granted these illegals de facto Amnesty with his pledge to not deport them....

The GOP must discuss mass deportation forthrightly if it wants to be serious—and be taken seriously—about immigration....

Even the official records indicate the government is allowing a large number of illegals to stay. Border agents detained almost 2 million illegals last year. Only 70 percent were deported or transported to detention. Roughly 30 percent were allowed to stay, with most of them being counted as minors. More than 56 percent of deportations were done under Title 42, the law that allows deportations for health reasons. But another 2 million slipped past border agents [Rising Border Encounters in 2021: An Overview and Analysis, American Immigration Council, March 4, 2022]...

All those illegal-alien women, thanks to Birthright Citizenship, will drop anchor babies, the paper Americans who permit the illegal parents to establish a foothold. In 2016, Pew estimated that illegals birthed 250,000 children in America....

All this—most notably refusing to enforce black-letter immigration law—merits impeachment, an idea many Republicans will strongly consider if they retake Congress in November. But impeaching Biden won’t send a single illegal back home. Nor will building a wall. Only deportation will....


‘Open Borders’ Biden Is Remaking America, by Patrick J. Buchanan, Taki's Magazine, 19 April 2022:

“The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion.”

So reads Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution.

Historically, that constitutional duty — to protect America’s states against invasion — has been the province of the president of the United States, the chief executive, who today is Joe Biden....

In Biden’s first year as president, some 1.7 million Illegal migrants were intercepted crossing into the United States.

The monthly figure from Fiscal Year 2021 was exceeded by the March 2022 figure of 220,000 migrants crossing over into the USA. If sustained, this rate would translate into an invasion of 2.6 million people, predominantly young and predominantly male, in this fiscal year alone....

A move is afoot to impeach Biden for his failure to do his constitutional duty and defend the southern border of the United States from the invading millions of illegal migrants.

But that would make impeachment the subject of national debate, not the massive illegal migration and the changes it is producing in the character of our country....
