Diogenes, one of the ancient world’s illustrious philosophers, believed that lies were the currency of politics, and those lies were the ones he sought to expose and debase. To make his point, Diogenes occasionally carried a lit lantern through the streets of Athens in the daylight. If asked why, Diogenes would say he was searching for an honest man. Finding an Honest Man Today in Washington, D.C., Is Equally Challenging, Diogenes Would Need a Xenon Searchlight in Each Hand.

As a Trump-era public health order to deport illegal immigrants expires on Monday, the president of the Border Patrol union predicted that drug gangs will gain "full control" of the southern border.
"That we just don't have somebody in the field, that we simply cannot patrol the border," National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd said on Fox News' "America's Newsroom" when asked about the "worst-case scenario" if the statute expires on May 23.

He says that the Border Patrol system is at capacity, and that overburdened border officials will be mostly held up by processing asylum-seeking illegal immigrants, either referring their claims or sending them back to their home countries.
"At the moment, we start our shifts with half of our resources not even undertaking enforcement tasks." They are in charge of administration. When this goes off, we'll have practically all of our staff performing administrative work rather than enforcement."
"That will give the cartels total power." "That's a dangerous scenario," he continued.
Judd was alluding to Title 42, a COVID-19-era program introduced in March 2020 by the Trump administration to promptly deport illegal immigrants on public health grounds. The provision has so far stopped almost 1.7 million illegal immigrants at the US–Mexico border in the last two years, but it is slated to expire on May 23 under President Joe Biden due to changes in public health circumstances.
According to a court declaration filed on May 16, US border agents met about 234,000 illegal aliens at the US–Mexico border in April, with 96,908 being deported back to Mexico under Title 42.
It surpassed March's 22-year high of slightly over 221,000 illegal aliens, and it was the fourth time under Biden that monthly border contacts surpassed 200,000.
According to Senate Minority Whip Sen. John Thune, the border issue "obviously started" when Biden assumed office in January 2021. (R-S.D.). "If he stops Title 42 policy next week, we're going to need a lot higher chart," he said on Twitter on May 18.
"By enabling the Cartels rather than @CBP [Customs and Border Protection], Biden is deliberately endangering the health and safety of our communities," stated Rep. Glenn Grothman (R-Wis.), ranking member of the National Security subcommittee, on May 17.
Rep. Diana Harshbarger (R-Tenn.) claimed the same day that the lift pleased "just the cartels."
The Biden administration has said that it is ready for up to 18,000 interactions every day when the restriction is lifted. Both Republicans and moderate Democrats, especially those running in competitive midterm elections in November, have expressed concern about the absence of a comprehensive strategy to address the probable immigration flood at the border if Title 42 is lifted.
During a visit to the Rio Grande Valley's southwest border on May 17, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said that his agency is preparing for the end of Title 42.
"That does not imply that the border will be open on May 23," Mayorkas said. "We will continue to police our country's laws." We continue to deport people who do not qualify for asylum under American law."
Under Biden, yearly deportations have decreased considerably. According to statistics supplied by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, around 59,011 people were deported in fiscal year 2021, compared to approximately 185,884 in 2020 and 267,258 in 2019.
Across September 20, 2021, Haitian migrants continue to cross the US–Mexico border on the Rio Grande, as viewed from Ciudad Acua, Coahuila state, Mexico.
A majority of American voters, including almost two-thirds of Hispanic voters, say the Biden administration should block the southern border until a solution is found, according to an April Convention of States Action and Trafalgar Group survey (pdf).
A temporary restraining order had already been issued by U.S. District Judge Robert Summer-hays, a Trump nominee, preventing the government from ending the Title 42 emergency border authorities.
According to court notice, the Biden administration has asked the federal judge to rule on the complaint by Friday "to eliminate confusion that might cause operational issues."
"The Biden administration is scurrying five days before its own deadline to abolish Title 42 because President Biden's open border policies have produced a 'unsustainable' disaster for our nation, according to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas."
SRH: The Short List of “Reprobate” found in Romans 1:28 in reference to those whom God has rejected as godless and wicked. They “suppress the truth by their wickedness,” and it is upon these people that the wrath of God rests (Romans 1:18). The Greek word translated “reprobate” in the New Testament is adokimos, which means literally “unapproved, that is, rejected; by implication, worthless (literally or morally).” SRH…
“What was the world like before Christian and Jesus? “There is nothing new about ‘New Atheism’. The ( Atheists, Joe Biden and Islamic extremists ) are going to take us back to a pre-Christian, pagan, racist world of inequality because without God there is no humanity. Without God, there are no morals.” Without GOD there are NO standards, it is hell on earth. Poverty, sickness, premature death, domestic violence, economic injustice, slavery, and political corruption will be there chosen life – enjoy.
The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth. The Bible speaks of godless individuals (Joe Biden) the “HYPER-REPROBATE”… who “suppress the truth,” saying, “Although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. . . . Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts. The homosexual (LGBTQE)-E for evil has exchanged the truth about God for a lie.
