Illegal immigration is costing Texas taxpayers billions of dollars. With its county governments, law enforcement and medical personnel strapped, responding to the surge of illegal immigrants flooding into Texas, county judges and the governor issued disaster declarations.
Counties first filed disaster declarations April 21, followed by the state’s disaster declaration on May 31. Texas filed a federal emergency declaration, requesting assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), specifically requesting supplemental federal assistance to respond to the exorbitant costs the state is picking up to deal with illegal border crossings into Texas.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
