Biden incentivizing cartels to bring immigrants in: Paxton
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton provides insight into President Biden’s immigration policy and argues the cartels are the only ones benefiting.
EXCLUSIVE: One day after President Biden scrapped former President Trump’s "Remain in Mexico" program, the pressure is building for the Department of Housing and Urban Development to ax its policy changes that make it easier for illegal immigrants to receive taxpayer-funded housing vouchers.
Sen. Pat Toomey, a Republican from Pennsylvania who is the ranking member of the Senate Banking Committee, sent a letter to HUD Secretary Marcia Fudge on Wednesday urging her to immediately reinstate previously waived regulations that ensure the vouchers go to U.S. citizens and legal residents – not illegal immigrants – as required by law.
"HUD’s waiver of its long-standing regulations that are designed to prevent illegal immigrants from receiving housing vouchers is inconsistent with President Biden’s instructions to his administration about the proper use of taxpayer funds," Toomey wrote.

"White House chief of staff Ron Klain recently stated that ‘President Biden has made crystal clear to his team that oversight is a key priority,’ which, in his words, ‘means . . . ensur[ing] that taxpayer funds are being spent as intended and in service of the needs of the American people,'" he added. "I agree with President Biden."
HUD did not immediately respond to FOX Business’ request for comment.
The letter comes after Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas on Tuesday ended Trump’s "Remain in Mexico" program, known formally as the Migrant Protection Protocols, which required potential asylum seekers to stay in Mexico until their cases were settled by U.S. immigration court. The program was lauded as helping stem the migrant crisis.
