Republicans say FOID should be void if illegal immigrants can possess guns
Story by Greg Bishop • 23h • 2 min read The Center Square

(The Center Square) – Illinois House Republicans are both condemning and praising a recent federal judge ruling about illegal immigrants being able to carry firearms for protection.

Earlier this month, Northern District of Illinois federal Judge Sharon Johnson Coleman ruled in favor of Heriberto Carbajal-Flores, a foreign national in the u.S. illegally who was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm. She said the law violates the Second Amendment as applied in this one case.
“The Court finds that Carbajal-Flores’ criminal record, containing no improper use of a weapon, as well as the non-violent circumstances of his arrest do not support a finding that he poses a risk to public safety such that he cannot be trusted to use a weapon responsibly and should be deprived of his Second Amendment right to bear arms in self-defense,” the judge wrote. “Thus, this Court finds that, as applied to Carbajal-Flores, Section 922(g)(5) is unconstitutional.”

State Rep. Dan Caulkins, R-Decatur, questioned where local law enforcement, the Illinois Attorney General or gun control advocates were on this case. But Friday on the House Floor, he praised the decision, saying that standard means Illinois’ Firearm Owners ID card should be struck down.

“Why shouldn’t gun owners across the state cut up our FOID cards and be able to buy guns out of state with no worry,” Caulkins said. “If a person who is not legally in this state can have his constitutional rights, so can the rest of us.”

Illinois State Police confirm that in order to get a FOID card, one has to attest that they are "not an alien who is unlawfully present in the United States."

State Rep. John Cabello agreed if the FOID card could be found null under such a ruling, that’s a good thing.

“But with this radical judge, we’ve got to make sure that we protect our citizens,” Cabello told The Center Square.

Cabello filed House Bill 5790 Friday that he said clarifies that illegal immigrants cannot become law enforcement and detain legal citizens.

Last year, legislators approved and the governor signed House Bill 3751. The law says someone “who is legally authorized under federal law to work in the United States and is authorized under federal law to obtain, carry, or purchase or otherwise possess a firearm, or who is an individual against whom immigration action has been deferred by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services under the federal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) process and is authorized under federal law to obtain, carry, or purchase or otherwise possess a firearm.

Cabello supported the measure then. But Friday, he said his HB5790 clarifies things.

“We got a little nervous about what [the judge] might do next, so we filed a bill to make sure that cannot happen,” Cabello told The Center Square. “We cannot in any way shape or form have a non-citizen of the United States arrest citizens of the United States.”

Over 500 Illegal Immigrants Charge, Break Through Razor Wire In Texas   OAN’s Sophia Flores  Thursday, March 21, 2024

Hundreds of foreigners trying to illegally cross at the Southern border in El Paso, Texas, charged and broke through a wall of razor wiring, crossing the international border in hopes of obtaining asylum in the United States.

On Thursday, around 600 migrants broke through the razor wire wall protecting entry into the U.S.

Initially, the large group of migrants were being pushed back by members of the Texas National Guard.

However, soon after, a handful of them pushed through Border Patrol agents and National Guard officials, knocking them out of the way.

The night before the chaotic break through, “hundreds of migrants were pushed south of the concertina wire in the middle of the night by Texas National Guard,” a border agent explained.

The Lone Star State deployed National Guard troops to the border at the request of Governor Greg Abbott (R-Texas).

The order was part of the Abbott’s Operation Lone Star.

On Wednesday, just a few hours after the Supreme Court allowed a Texas law to take effect that gave authorities the right to arrest individuals who they suspect had entered the country illegally, a federal appeals court issued an order that now puts the law, SB4, on hold.

‘This is treason': Biden administration under fire as report claims 200K migrant deportation cases were dismissed due to lack of paperwork

Story by Conrad Dias • 9h • 2 min read © Provided by Meaww

WASHINGTON, DC: According to a recent report, immigration judges rejected deportation proceedings against about 200,000 migrants because the Department of Homeland Security under President Biden neglected to submit the necessary documents before their court appearances.

Notably, Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University issued a report on Wednesday, March 20, that stated that courts were left without authority to judge on asylum claims and manage deportation cases because the DHS failed to appear in thousands of notices before scheduled hearing dates.

Migrant deportation of 200K cases tossed due to lack of paperwork

The TRAC report stated, "These large numbers of dismissals and what then happens raise serious concerns."

The 'almost total lack of transparency on where and why these DHS failures occurred' was deemed 'troubling' by the unbiased research team.

The report further stated, "Equally troubling is the lack of solid information on what happened to these many immigrants when DHS never rectified its failure by reissuing and filing new NTAs to restart their Court cases."

Notably, when migrants are caught entering the US illegally, they are given notices to appear, or NTAs. When a migrant requests asylum, they are given a hearing date, sometimes years in advance, and are given the chance to argue before an immigration court why they shouldn't be deported.
