Wide Open Borders
What to know: How did President Joe Biden’s plans to “discourage” illegal immigration following the end of Title 42 restrictions work out last week?
The TPPF take: Because the Biden administration’s actions don’t match its words, the flow of migrants into the U.S. is unimpeded.
“It doesn’t really matter what the U.S. government says, its actions don’t match its words,” says TPPF’s Rodney Scott. “What the Biden administration is doing totally overrides what the administration is saying. When would-be migrants see their friends and families posting from America, they come. And they tell their friends. Every successful crossing encourages more.”

What to know: A Republican lawmaker in New Jersey is calling for a halt to offshore wind projects until we can learn why so many whales in impacted areas are dying.
The TPPF take: TPPF attorneys have filed a lawsuit over offshore wind plans that endanger marine wildlife, including the North Atlantic right whale.
“At every stage of wind farm development, these majestic creatures are threatened, starting with the sonar surveys used to map the seabed,” says TPPF’s Robert Henneke. “When the liberal environmental group Natural Resources Defense Council, a coalition of U.S. senators led by Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and a conservative Texas institute like mine come together to question an ocean-based wind farm project, something must be fishy.”

What to know: City Journal has an essay on how diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) efforts have swallowed up Texas A&M University.
The TPPF take: What is “diversity, equity and inclusion” (DEI), really?
“The bedrock belief of DEI is that racism is not an individual act of evil, it is a structural system, geared toward preserving white supremacy,” says TPPF’s Sherry Sylvester. “Higher education is part of this systemic racism, according to DEI’s assessment. So is free-market capitalism, America’s legal system rooted in English common law, medicine, virtually everything American, including our values of achievement, hard-work, equality and independence.”
