In April of this year, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott had grown weary of the Biden administration releasing illegal aliens captured at the border into Texas towns and decided to make his problem Washington’s problem. He began to load illegal aliens onto buses and send them across the country to Washington, D.C.

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey thought that was a fine idea and began to send his own convoys full of illegals to Washington.

Now, according to an exclusive report in the Washington Examiner, there have been 79 buses that have brought 2,500 illegals to Washington’s Union Station from Arizona and Texas. To be sure, this is just a small fraction of the total number of illegals that have been captured at the border. But both Republican governors are sending a political message to Biden: stop dumping your border problems in our laps.

One-quarter of migrants in Arizona said they planned to go to New York after arriving in Washington, followed by 23% who said New Jersey was their final destination. Florida came in third.

In Arizona, 69% of migrants who boarded buses to Washington were from Colombia. Peruvians made up the second-highest percentage at 15%. Carr said eight Russian citizens were aboard a bus that departed Tuesday.

Ducey’s busing initiative helps alleviate the pressure from communities such as Yuma, Arizona, by picking up people immediately after they are released by the Border Patrol in town.

Since the media is ignoring the crisis at the border, we must rely on local sources for news about what the Biden administration is trying to do. Yuma, Ariz. is a good example of the chaos that Biden has unleashed. The 90,000 people who live there have been overwhelmed by the crush of humanity.

Because hundreds of migrants are released and permitted to travel anywhere in the country from Yuma each day, regional airports and bus lines are overwhelmed. The 90,000-person city is a three-hour drive from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. Transporting migrants released from custody has been a challenge, according to Mayor Douglas Nicholls (R), but with limited flights, a local nonprofit group is looking at other ways of transporting migrants to out-of-state airports, including in Las Vegas and Los Angeles.

Abbott first announced April 6 that the state would use emergency evacuation procedures to transport migrants out of the state in an effort to “take the border to President Biden.” The white charter buses and security guards onboard were contracted through private companies. Although Abbott vowed to drop off migrants at the Capitol, the buses have dropped passengers closer to Union Station, the major transportation hub in the region.

If Biden is going to promote open borders, the least he can do is pay a fair share of the cost of administering his catch-and-release program. But volunteering the federal government to pick up the tab for anything at the border would draw attention to the growing number of illegals clamoring to get in.

There will come a time when Biden won’t be able to hide the deluge of people trying to get into the U.S. But until then, the administration leaves the security at the Southern border in the hands of the overworked and discouraged border patrol and state governments that don’t have the money or resources to address the problem.

$14 million a year for ten years — $140,000,000 to rebuild after the Islamic State overran Cabo Delgado. Why is it the responsibility of the United States to repair Mozambique while the U.S. itself is in the middle of an economic crisis? And what has been done or is being done to ensure that the jihadis don’t return?

“Biden Administration to Spend $14M a Year Rebuilding Mozambique Province,” by Gabrielle Reyes, Breitbart, June 16, 2022:

The administration of U.S. President Joe Biden announced on Tuesday plans to provide $14 million annually over the next decade to the Mozambique province of Cabo Delgado in an effort to rebuild the region after it was overrun by Islamic terrorists in recent months, the state-run Mozambique News Agency (AIM) reported Thursday.

“The funding was announced by the US Under-Secretary of State for Political Affairs, Victoria Nuland, at a Maputo press conference on Tuesday [June 14], held shortly after [Mozambique] President Filipe Nyusi had granted her an audience,” according to AIM.

“This sum [$14 million per year] will allow the United States government to work on the reconstruction of Cabo Delgado and the rest of the country, and in training young people for employment, and thus discouraging them from being recruited by the terrorists,” Nuland said on Tuesday as quoted by AIM.

“The fund has already been approved by the United States Congress, and the agreement could be signed within the next two months,” Nuland added.

Nuland personally confirmed her meeting with President Nyusi in a statement posted by her official Twitter account on June 15.

“Honored to meet with Mozambique President Filipe Nyusi to discuss U.S. support for security, stabilization, prosperity, health, and peace in Mozambique,” she wrote.

Cabo Delgado is a coastal province located in Mozambique’s north that was besieged by jihadist terrorists in March 2021. The Islamist insurgency forced the French energy giant Total to halt all operations at its natural gas processing plant near the Cabo Delgado resort town of Palma in April 2021, effectively shutting down the regional economy. Total’s natural gas liquefaction plant near Palma accounted for the single largest source of foreign investment in Africa ($20 billion) before it was forced to cease production.

Biden’s handlers are giving $140,000,000 of U.S. taxpayer money to rebuild Mozambique after the devastation the Islamic State has wrought. But the Islamic State is still there. So what will become of all that money?

“Islamic State Claims Attacks on Christian Village,” International Christian Concern, June 18, 2022:

06/18/2022 Mozambique (International Christian Concern) –­­ ISIS has claimed responsibility for attacks on several Christian villages in Caba [sic] Delgado, Mozambique, that happened between May 23 and May 31. Six villages were attacked, leaving 8 people dead. Four of those who were murdered were Christians. Following the attacks, ISIS released photographs of six decapitated bodies, as well as images of the burned villages.

Mozambique is no stranger to Islamic State (IS) attacks. The Islamic State, or its affiliate groups, have killed or displaced thousands of Christians in Mozambique….

Why Are Thousands of Flights Being Canceled at America’s Airports?

The summer travel season is off to a rocky start for America’s largest air carriers. Over the five-day Memorial Day weekend, more than 2,800 flights were canceled for one reason or another, with severe weather playing only a small part.

More than one-third of all flights at LaGuardia Airport and over a quarter of flights at Newark Airport were canceled Thursday in one of the worst travel days yet this summer. The problem is partially attributed to a lack of pilots. Retirements and losses during the pandemic have yet to be filled.

And the staffing shortage isn’t limited to pilots. Flight crews, ground personnel, airport security people — all are in short supply.

New York Post:

Unions representing pilots at Delta, American and Southwest Airlines said the companies have been too slow to replace pilots who retired or took leaves of absence during the pandemic.

Airlines have also placed the blame on poor weather conditions and the Federal Aviation Administration, which manages the country’s airspace and air-traffic control centers, which are also struggling with staffing issues.

Thursday’s cancellations happened as airline CEOs met with US Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg in a virtual meeting to discuss concerns over airport bottle-necks and frustrated travelers this summer.

“I let them know that this is a moment when we are really counting on them to deliver reliably for the traveling public,” Buttigieg told NBC News.

It’s become a familiar refrain from Biden administration officials: it’s your fault, not ours.

What should the airlines do to “deliver reliably for the traveling public”? Perhaps a “Help Wanted: Pilots” TV campaign?

The fact is, people who can pilot the big jets safely don’t grow on trees. About one-third are ex-military pilots, down from 80 percent in the 1960s. The military is also having difficulty attracting pilots. Given that the machines they’re flying are becoming more and more complex, this is worrisome news for the commercial airline industry. For more than a decade, industry analysts have pointed to the deficiencies in the pilot pipeline from military to civilian work.

Now, the predictions of pilot shortages have become a reality. Hastened by the pandemic and the massive layoffs in the commercial airline industry, airlines are scrambling to fill the gaping holes in their schedules — the result of fewer-than-expected pilot hires.

In the late 1960s, the Air Force upped the number of years a pilot had to serve from four to ten. According to a Washington Post analysis, “One pilot serving 10 years now does the work of 2.5 pilots serving four each.”

It also deters some aspiring pilots who saw a four-year commitment as a viable alternative to flight school but weren’t willing to commit to 10 years of flying, after a year or more of training.

Now most pilots are choosing a civilian education even though flight-time requirements for commercial co-pilots have climbed from 250 to 1,500 hours. It can cost as much as $300,000 to attend a private, four-year aviation university, Smith said. But the returns are immediate — entry-level co-pilots earn $30,000 to $50,000 a year, and veterans at major carriers can earn $300,000 or more.

It’s not going to be possible to make up the shortfall in pilots anytime soon.

Turnover at the Transportation Security Administration is also a huge problem and non-government airport workers are notoriously underpaid. Attracting and keeping workers would be a big first step in addressing the current problem.

But if you’re flying this summer, you’re likely to experience delays and even cancelations.
