Feds plan to dump immigrants in cities away from border: officials

Published

on

The Biden Administration is working on plans to bus immigrants away from the overwhelmed border communities in Texas and dump them in cities and towns hours away from the border, two elected officials in Texas tell The Post.

San Angelo, Texas, some three hours from the US-Mexico border, was scouted as a location to bus immigrants, US Rep. August Pfluger (R-TX) told The Post.

“San Angelo is a welcoming community, but the locality has not volunteered for this mission, nor are they responsible for the burdens of the border crisis,” said Pfluger. “This situation is a direct result of DHS’ shortsighted policies that encourage more illegal immigration and the agency’s failure to establish operational control of the southern border.”

Pfluger, who represents San Angelo in Congress, was alerted to this possibility by San Angelo law enforcement who were alarmed about their ability to absorb any amount of immigrants. San Angelo has a population of just over 100,000 and only has three daily flights out of town and limited bus service.

In a letter to DHS, Pfluger demanded to know what plans DHS had to drop off immigrants in San Angelo or other Texas cities, if chosen communities would receive any kind of notice that immigrants were heading their way and whether DHS would provide local leaders background checks on the immigrants released into their communities.

While he hasn’t received specifics from DHS, Pfluger was contact by officials from Customs and Border Protection and told San Angelo was merely being considering as a possible location, but no plans were set at this time.

“You can only assume that they’re looking at other locations or that plans can change in the future,” Pfluger told The Post.

Currently, immigrants who cross the border illegally and are seeking asylum are released after being processed by the Border Patrol and ICE. They are usually dropped off at bus stations in border communities like Del Rio, Texas, where a Stripes gas stations doubles as the bus depot. The immigrants are usually headed to cities in the interior of the United States and do not plan on staying in border communities. While they wait to get a bus ticket or airfare to their final destination, they usually remain in small border towns, sometimes without a place to sleep.

“Yes, it will relieve some of the pressure off of the border communities, but then it’s going to create a problem in other communities,” said Robert Beau Nettleton, a county commissioner in Val Verde County, Texas. The county has been identified by Texas officials as being one of three hot spot counties for border crossings.

“We’re not solving problems. We’re just moving people around to different locations to make it look like there’s not as many people on the border as we normally see,” the commissioner told The Post. “It’s a political ploy to say, ‘Look, these communities no longer have this problem because we solved it.’ You solved it for that community, but you didn’t solve the problem. You just moved the problem.”

An internal DHS document obtained by NBC News shows DHS’s plan to bus immigrants to Los Angeles, Albuquerque, New Mexico, Houston, Dallas, and other cities. However, San Angelo, Texas is the first small town, without the resources to deal with immigrants, that has been named as a possible location.

“They’re not set up to handle it. They don’t have the resources to handle it, they don’t have the NGOs to handle it,” Nettleton said and added he predicts many immigrants will end up on the streets for a time after they’re released.

It’s not the first time politicians have turned to bussing immigrants away from the border. Texas Governor Greg Abbott has used state funds and donations to send 65 busloads carrying more than 2,000 people to Washington, D.C. since April.

Now new American cities and communities away from the border will have to share in the burden border communities have shouldered, he said.

“You’ve been saying it for a long time, that it is coming to a community near you,” said Nettleton. “There’s still a lot of people in these bigger cities around the United States that don’t really think that there’s a ‘border issue’ because they’re not dealing with it, but when they start dumping thousands of them in their backyard, then maybe they will understand that there is a problem.”

Published

on

Actress Anne Heche, known for her roles in such films as Donnie Brasco, Volcano and I Know What You Did Last Summer, was involved in a fiery car crash in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles on Friday.

According to TMZ, Heche was driving a blue Mini Cooper and had first crashed into the garage of an apartment complex. Residents of the apartment complex tried to get her out of the vehicle but she backed up and sped off.

Footage of Heche speeding down the streets of her neighborhood had been obtained by TMZ as well as her initial encounter at the apartment complex.

In the first clip, you can hear her car crash towards the end. It has been reported that the actress crashed into someone’s home, causing her vehicle and the house to erupt into flames. Heche suffered severe burns and was resisting being taken away in a stretcher. You can also view footage of this via the TMZ article.

It has not been confirmed whether alcohol has been involved in the incident since her condition prevents doctors from performing any tests to determine if she was driving under the influence. She is currently intubated in the hospital but expected to live.

These are the vulgar license-plate requests the DMV has rejected

Published

on

Stay CL4SSY, New York!

The state Department of Motor Vehicles nixed 3,752 requests for vanity license plates in the last three years because it deemed them too raunchy, radical or simply ridiculous.

New York’s personalized plates go for $60 initially, and then $31.25 annually for renewal. You can get any plate as long as no one else has it and it’s not offensive.

Odds are a request for a plate that marks a wedding anniversary or shows your allegiance to a team — like METS86 — will pass muster with the DMV gatekeepers.

Vulgarity won’t get you to first base.

So plates with the phrase LFGM — the acronym for Pete Alonso’s “Let’s F–king Go Mets” rallying cry — did not make the cut.

And you won’t see anyone driving around with the custom plates MILFDAD, AS5M4N and WLHUNG.

Crude meanings such as “MILFDAD” are unacceptable by the DMV.

The DMV also put NICEBUNS, FATFANNY, GOTAPOOP and BENDOVER in the rear-view mirror.

The DMV also shot down such dark requests as DEADGIRL, GENOC1DE, S8TAN, DETONATE and MURDERM3.

Getting political is a dead end too — FJOEBIDN, FDTRUMP and CNNLIES were nixed.

LUDEDUDE, NARCO, GOT METH and BLUNT also went up in smoke.

Staten Island attorney Bill Dertinger said his blue 1995 Jaguar SJS was tagged with ESQLTD after his company and his 2014 Porsche had the plate GHOSTGTS because the sleek sportscar was white.

“The plates can make you stand out — which can be a curse or a blessing,” the 54-year-old Dertinger said. “Make sure you don’t cut anybody off.”

There must be a New York Jets fan playing referee at the DMV because a request for the seemingly innocent plate GASE was sidelined. Ex-Jets head coach Adam Gase had an offensive 9-23 win-loss record during his forgettable two-year tenure.

The DMV would not reveal who gives the final yea or nay.

“The DMV reviews all custom license plate requests and works hard to ensure that any combinations that may be considered objectionable are rejected,” said agency spokesman Tim O’Brien.

“GLOCKS” referring to guns is not accepted by the DMV.

He said guidelines on what plate combinations are restricted can be found on the DMV website: https://dmv.ny.gov/learn-about-personalized-plates. Approximately 50,000 personalized and custom plates are sold per year, O’Brien said.
