Illegal Aliens In New York Spark School Protests

Across the country, states and cities are dealing with an influx of thousands of illegal immigrants who have entered the country in recent weeks. On Tuesday morning, in Williamsburg, a neighborhood of New York City, students and parents protested both in favor of and against the use of a local school’s gymnasium to house the migrants. Children could be seen holding signs saying, “We need recess!” and chanting.

There are roughly 150 temporary shelters being used across the Big Apple for the more than 40,000 illegal aliens who have come to the city under Biden. Many parents feel it poses a safety risk.

In the last week alone, 4,000 individuals have arrived from the southern border, and the city says it has simply nowhere else to place them.

Mark Houck Testifies Before Congress

Mark Houck, the Catholic father of 7 — whose house was raided by the FBI back in September — spoke before the House Judiciary Committee today on Capitol Hill.

This all stems from a 2021 incident outside a Pennsylvania abortion clinic in which Houck shoved a planned parenthood escort who was allegedly harassing both Houck and his son.

IRS Whistleblower’s Team Getting Kicked From Hunter Biden Probe, Lawyers Say

The IRS agent who alleges the criminal investigation into Hunter Biden has been corrupted by lies and politics is being pulled from the inquiry in a possible act of retaliation.

They said that this change allegedly came at the request of the Department of Justice. Attorneys Mark Lytle and Tristan Leavitt called the move “clearly retaliatory and may also constitute obstruction of a congressional inquiry.”

A young girl from Illinois whose abduction was featured on the Netflix true-crime series “Unsolved Mysteries” has been found alive and safe in North Carolina.
