Summary

Congressionally established immigration policy has certain narrow carve outs providing discretion to presidents. One of these carve-outs, “immigration parole”, has been abused by presidents of both parties to admit hundreds of thousands of ineligible people from abroad, ignoring the intent of Congress and undermining the Constitution’s separation of powers between the executive and legislative branches.

The Biden administration seems to want to parole in millions. Can presidents simply ignore laws passed by Congress and let into the United States anyone they want?

Join Jim and Greg as the welcome an actual good martini in addition to their evaluation of ever-worsening conditions in Afghanistan. First, they cheer the U.S. Supreme Court for ruling that the Biden administration must reinstate the “remain in Mexico” policy which requires asylum seekers to stay outside the U.S. while their claims are investigated. They also document a long list of mainstream media reports chronicling just how bad conditions are getting for people desperately trying to get to the Kabul airport and how the Biden administration’s narrative doesn’t match reality at all. And they’re getting suspicious that the Biden administration’s vow to evacuate every American who wants to get out may be setting up an ugly talking point after August 31st.

Have I ever done that? Have I and the former President of Bolivia ever done it in the same place? I don’t think so, at least in the places he is currently reputed to be. His exact whereabouts remain undisclosed. But it’s a safe guess he’s not in, oh, Guaymas, or Chetumal, or Tapachula, or […]

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America cheer Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice for utterly rejecting the suggestion from NBC’s Savannah Guthrie that Russian meddling may have tipped the 2016 election to President Trump – and explaining what really did happen.  They also welcome the U.S. Supreme Court siding with the Trump administration in requiring asylum seekers to apply for asylum in any country they enter on the way to the U.S.  And they pop the popcorn as the Biden campaign takes a swing at Elizabeth Warren and Marianne Williamson complains that the Democrats are meaner to her than conservatives.  Finally, they figure out ways to tolerate a three-hour Democratic presidential debate tonight.

US & Guatemala Sign “Safe Third Country” Agreement to Curb False Claims of Asylum

 

President Trump oversaw a signing ceremony Friday in the Oval Office between Guatemala and the United States for a “safe third country” agreement on asylum seekers. The New York Post reports:

The “safe third country” agreement would require migrants, including Salvadorans and Hondurans, who cross into Guatemala on their way to the US to apply for protections in that country instead of at the southern border [of the United States]. … The two countries had been negotiating an agreement for months, and Trump threatened Wednesday to place tariffs on Guatemala if it didn’t cut a deal.

There is a hole in the present laws and case law that migrants from the Northern Triangle (Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador) are exploiting with great skill. This is a collision of several factors. First, as I understand the current law, any person from another country can claim “asylum” at any time, even if they […]

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America groan as conservative House Republicans are reportedly prepared to be less demanding on reining in spending once Trump is in office.  They also shake their heads as more revelations suggest the Germans should have had the Berlin terrorist out of the country a long time ago.  And they discuss three hate crime allegations that turned out to be hoaxes – the latest in a series of fake news.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America react to a Washington Post report suggesting the 2018 Senate map gives the Republicans a chance to hold a 60-seat majority.  They also shudder as German authorities confirm they’re looking for a Tunisian asylum seeker as the one responsible for the Berlin terrorist attack.  And they scratch their heads over the reasons some Democrats are giving for opposing Keith Ellison as the next DNC chairman, instead of the really glaring reasons he would be a terrible choice.
