Illegal Immigrants May Supercharge NonCitizen Voting

With 5M registered voters in NYC, noncitizens could rapidly become a 1M voting bloc representing 17% of the city.

Leading the Charge Against Illegal Immigration

The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR)

By Nicholas Softy
FAIR State & Local Field Representative

We are living in an unprecedented and alarming time. Massive influxes of illegal aliens are streaming into the United States at record rates. During fiscal year 2023, there were more than 3.2 million illegal aliens encountered and according to Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas more than 600,000 known gotaways. This is more than all four years of the Trump administration combined. The cost of this record high level of immigration is massive, with illegal immigration costing U.S. taxpayers over $150 billion every single year. In New York State, the estimated 1.1 million illegal aliens and their roughly 372,000 U.S. born children cost N.Y. taxpayers nearly $10 billion per year.

As American citizens, we must promote policies which reduce the negative impact of illegal immigration. The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) has taken on this task by fearlessly advocating for a principled and common-sense approach to immigration reform. For over forty years, FAIR has been tirelessly working on multiple fronts to combat illegal immigration at local, state, and federal levels.

FAIR is working on the frontlines of the immigration debate, and pushing local initiatives with municipal lawmakers and community members to make principled immigration reform a reality. In cities, towns, and counties across the United States, FAIR has been a staunch advocate for the cooperation between local law enforcement and federal immigration agencies. By supporting legislation, educational outreach, and initiatives that allow local stakeholders to work in partnership with federal agencies, FAIR is ensuring that immigration law is upheld at the grassroots level.

FAIR’s work extends beyond local communities to state governments. FAIR works hand-in-hand with state officials and legislators to actively lobby for state-level reforms; of which, prioritize the interests of American citizens. While enacting meaningful change at the state level, FAIR provides solutions to meet the unique needs of individual states. This proactive engagement involves not only drafting legislation, but also providing valuable, up-to-date research to support the arguments of our allies. Through these strategic partnerships, FAIR endeavors to create a more comprehensive approach to immigration policy, one that aligns with the well-being of American citizens and reflects the diverse dynamics of states across the nation. 

While local and state initiatives are crucial, federal policies set the framework for the entire nation. On this front, FAIR’s presence on the national stage is evident through its federal advocacy for comprehensive immigration reform, consistent with the principles prioritizing American workers, national security, and the rule of law. FAIR is a vocal champion of border security and advocates for large-scale increases in the funding and resources necessary to secure our borders, support the officers of immigration law enforcement, and remedy America’s broken immigration system.

As the national debate on immigration reform continues, FAIR is at the forefront of advancing policies and legal processes that fight mass uncontrolled immigration, sanctuary cities, and any abuse of our immigration system. FAIR’s advocacy efforts on the local, state, and federal level continue to have a tremendous impact on U.S. immigration policy. While the challenges are significant, FAIR is fearless in the face of hostility, and provides hope for a better future where immigration is conducted in a responsible, legal manner that benefits all Americans.

We invite you to join our Immigration Activist Network. FAIR’s Activist network spans all 50 states and is composed of dedicated individuals who believe that America’s immigration policies should be designed to benefit U.S. citizens and legal residents. There are so many ways to get involved in FAIR’s activist work, like calling or emailing your state, local or federal representatives; attending virtual or in-person strategy meetings; and mobilizing like-minded individuals to attend hearings and rallies in favor of sensible immigration reforms.

Voting Matters and Elections Have Consequences

By Phil Orenstein
President, Queens Village Republican Club

We have a Republican Atom Bomb sitting under our feet waiting to go off. The migrant crisis was to be the ignition to cause a chain reaction of outraged voters, expected to storm the poll sites to vote for a change in leadership to take action to stop the illegal alien invasion of NYC and our communities. Voters flooding the polls, living in Eastern Queens, were recently saddled with a migrant tent city on Creedmoor grounds, with over 1000 unvetted single male illegal migrants against the collective will of everyone. Voters who live in fear of increased crime, lawlessness, and destruction of our neighborhoods. Homeowners who see their property values declining. Taxpayers who are on the hook for $$ billions of dollars to provide free housing, food, school, healthcare, laundry service, and even free bus and subway fare for illegal migrants, while the city is enacting sweeping budget cuts, slashing police, trash pick-ups, education, library hours, and cuts to all city services. NYC is headed for a fiscal cliff because Mayor Adams took in 140,000 migrants and every voter is feeling the pain.

Creedmoor Becomes Drunken “Hotel California” For Many Illegal Immigrants

By Scott Michael Harney 

The Creedmoor “Bus Stop Bar” – Open 24 Hours

In the Eagles’ song “Hotel California,” you can check out but “you can never leave.”  The same apparently holds true for 1000 or so illegal aliens living off the taxpayer dollar at the Creedmoor Migrant Center on Hillside Avenue in Queens. The migrant center has been open for more than 60 days; however, the residents who were interviewed had no plans to leave, had no idea where they would live and had no job prospects.

On one recent afternoon, about twenty or so illegal aliens from Venezuela sat at the bus stop in front of the center, waiting for a bus that would never come, drinking from small “nip” bottles of alcohol.  One had a larger bottle of alcohol that he was pouring into cups for others, at the makeshift “bus stop bar.”  Several illegal aliens from African countries were smoking marijuana nearby, while a few other North Africans sat quietly reading the Quran. 

The Venezuelans were too inebriated to conduct an interview and became aggressive when this reporter tried to take their photo, not understanding that in a democracy, it is legal to take a photograph in a public place where there “is no expectation of privacy.”   At one point, there were too many illegals at the bus stop to pass by on the sidewalk.

One illegal alien from Sudan, who gave his name as “Adam,” said that he paid smugglers “thousands of dollars” for his initial passage from Sudan to Europe and then onward to Venezuela, where he made the trek with other North Africans to the southern border of the United States. Adam, like the majority of other military-age illegals from North Africa, Russia, China, Ukraine and other criteria countries, conveniently “lost” his passport, so there is no way to determine his true identify or if he was affiliated with any subversive or terrorist organizations.  These potential “sleeper agents” can now blend in with ethnic communities in NYC.

In the legal asylum system, overseen through US Embassies, name checks would have been performed to vet foreign nationals like “Adam,” and he would have most likely been refused entry to the US after it was determined that he was visiting for economic – or possibly nefarious – reasons. This invasion of more than 100,000 unvetted, aggressive young men was aided and abetted by globalist traitors in the Biden Administration, who have refused to protect the US border – and it some cases – have welded open the once-secure border wall constructed during the Trump administration.

The “open-borders” appears to be an intentional, coordinated policy, with the assistance from the communist government of Venezuela – a close ally of Communist China.  The Venezuelans are providing a safe haven and rest stop for the northward US “Trojan Horse” invasion.  The Biden Administration is either too inept – or complicit – in order to address this national security issue.  Human smuggling has become a multi-billion-dollar industry, that has all of the profit of drug trafficking – but few of the legal risks. The illegal alien invasion of New York City has also become a “cash cow” for the social justice warrior grifters in NYC Mayor Eric Adams’ office.

The NYC Covid-19 “Test and Treat” office has reinvented itself overnight as the “asylum seekers” office, managing the migrant shelters throughout the city.  This year’s budget alone is $4.7 Billion dollars, larger than the budgets for most militaries around the world.  This money will line the pockets of social workers, bureaucrats, construction companies, food companies and a prominent security company, all of whom have lucrative contracts with the City.

The mix of young, single men, drinking and doing drugs, with nothing to do and no means of income is creating a toxic atmosphere for the local community. Residents have complained that crime has risen in the two months since the opening of the migrant center and there have been at least two attempted home invasions in that neighborhood, which occurred on October 4 and October 7.  Some have speculated that the perpetrators may be from the Creedmoor migrant center, since a mask from NYC Health and Hospitals was found at the scene of one of the attempted break-ins. A police spokesperson from NYPD Precinct 105, however, said there was “no evidence” that anyone from the Creedmoor migrant center was involved in the attempted home invasions, claiming that that NYPD has “seen no increase in crimes” since the center opened. Regardless, local residents feel insecure, and many avoid the area now because of the public drinking, drug use and overall threatening atmosphere. “They (the illegal migrants) are feeling more comfortable here now and they are becoming more bold,” said one long-time community activist. “The residents feel afraid.  Our political leaders are offering no help.  They are only asking for more money – but the solution is to close the border.”
