Hand it to the Biden Regime. When it comes to lying, whether to the public or to a federal judge, Traitor Joe’s subalterns are unrivaled. The latest example: The whoppers they told to Judge Drew Tipton of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas. Appointed by POTUS 45 Donald Trump, Tipton is hearing the lawsuit Texas and 18 other states filed to stop Biden’s illegal “parole” program for illegal aliens. The Big Lie from the Sleeper-In-Chief’s professional prevaricators concerns the nature of the “migrants” he is letting loose in the United States, as well as the nature of the program itself.
The Regime is defending the Great Replacement Parole Amnesty that permits 360,000 Cubans, Nicaraguans, Haitians, and Venezuelans annually to apply for asylum and come directly to the United States from their home nations. The program’s rationale: they face persecution. Yet those same persecuted “migrants” aren’t applying for refugee status nor, for the most part, asylum, once they land in the United States. Instead they’re coming for work and welfare; i.e., for jobs and free stuff. The Regime also claims that parole was intended to relieve the pressure of illegal aliens crossing the border with Mexico. All that’s codswallop.
The states’ lawsuit claims that the Parole Amnesty violates the federal Administrative Procedures Act that governs the implementation of new rules and regulations. As well, the lawsuit argues that parole has become an illegal, shadow immigration system outside the law, and that concerns about political persecution are a falsehood to justify economic immigration, which would require a properly-issued, employment-based or Immigrant Visa (IV) or Non-Immigrant Visa (NIV).
As well, the statute strictly limits parole in scope and time, with the alien to be removed once the purpose is achieved.
Previously, parole was for a limited time and for a specific case-by-case purpose: castaways found at sea, alien court witnesses, or those needing medical treatment. It was never an alternative route to immigrating and living here. Parole is not an alternative for IVs, NIVs or asylum and refugee applications.
But that’s how Traitor Joe is using it.
Biden’s Justice Department attorneys and their Treason Lobby coconspirators aren’t testifying, though. They’re “testilying,” as cops call it when they testify falsely. The Big Testilie in this case is the real purpose of the parole: replacing whites—the Historic American Nation—by electing a new people and importing new Democrat voters who will permanently enthrone the communists who staged the Big Coup in 2020.
That’s a lie by omission. But, of course, Judge Tipton never asked Biden’s officials if the Great Replacement is the real reason for the parole.
The Big Testilie by commission: denying that the parole program is importing economic migrants, not those fleeing real violence or persecution. And Tipton did raise this:
“Does the fact they are living in poverty qualify as an urgent humanitarian need?” Tipton asked as closing arguments were being presented in the trial in Victoria, Texas.
“I think probably not,” said Elissa Fudim, a lawyer with the U.S. Justice Department, which is defending the federal government in the lawsuit.
Esther Sung [Pictured right—Email her] an attorney with the Justice Action Center, one of several immigrant rights groups that are defending the parole program in the lawsuit, said that Congress “has frowned on letting a migrant in for purely economic reasons.”

“I think probably not?!” Here’s what that means: Poverty—coming here for jobs and free stuff—is obviously the primary rationale for the Amnesty. Otherwise Fudim would state forthrightly that the parole program is not for economic migrants. Or that it is. Clearly, Fudim couldn’t outright lie, so she answered vaguely, likely because she might face a perjury charge.
That lie led to the next one: i.e., that the parole program is meant to provide refuge for “migrants” running from persecution. The problem for the testilying witnesses, though, is that the parolees are not applying for, nor do they qualify for asylum.
Aliens who qualify for asylum don’t need to be paroled. They simply apply for asylum.
But lies are heaped on lies. The government claims that applicants are considered on a case-by-case basis, as required by statute, and applicants have been denied. Yet we can’t get the number of those who have been denied … obviously because so few are or have been.
The program’s supporters argue it isn’t giving blanket approval to all who apply and that each case is individually reviewed. They dispute the claim everyone is accepted, saying people who had made it to the final approval step after arriving in the U.S. have been rejected. No number was given on how many such rejections have occurred.
That’s the same lie, by the way, that the government told about the Deferred for Childhood Arrivals. Federal officials rubber-stamped DACA applications, which is why Judge Andrew Hanen declared DACA illegal.
As well, Judge Tipton appears to have accepted this claim at face value:
They said the program has also helped reduce the strain on resources and border agents along the U.S.-Mexico border.
DOJ attorneys dishonestly said the parole program would decrease illegal immigration. But in fact, illegal immigration has worsened. After a temporary decline in June, illegal immigration has rebounded to previous levels, clearly showing parole has not reduced it, as Traitor Joe said it would.
And weeks ago, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, the unindicted visa fraudster, admitted the true nature of the program in a press conference:
SECRETARY MAYORKAS: Let me turn that question around a little bit, because I’m going to turn it around to match the question that an international partner asked of me. And the question that the international partner asked of me is, “What is the economic cost of your broken immigration system?” Since there are businesses around this country that are desperate for workers, there are desperate workers looking for jobs in—desperate workers in foreign countries that are looking for jobs in the United States where they can earn money lawfully and send much-needed remittances back home. What is the cost of a broken immigration system? That is the question that I am asked, and that is the question that I pose to Congress, because it is extraordinary.
Press Briefing by Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre and Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas, Whitehouse.gov, May 11, 2023 [Emphasis added]
In what may be a bad sign, Tipton pressed Texas’ attorneys about their financial losses:
Tipton repeatedly asked Texas’ lawyers how the state could be claiming financial losses if data shows that the parole program has actually reduced the number of migrants coming into the U.S.
“In the last six months [sic] you’ve actually spent less on people from those countries,” Tipton told Texas’ lawyers.
We have to hope that Tipton was merely acting skeptical.
Given the number of parolees, his claim cannot be true. More than 210,000 illegals have been paroled, and they are just one nationality or special group that enjoys access to it.
Here’s the AP’s Lozano:
As of the end of July, more than 72,000 Haitians, 63,000 Venezuelans, 41,000 Cubans and 34,000 Nicaraguans had been vetted and authorized to come to the U.S. through the program.
And one more thing: Parolees are more expensive than garden-variety illegals because they qualify for more welfare programs.
For the record, lying to a court is a serious crime, punishable under Title 18 United States Code Section 401, Power Of The Court, and could result in disbarment, as well as losing the case.
It’s bad enough when cops and common criminals lie to courts. But it’s another level of mendacity when a DOJ attorney does. Officers of the court are presumed to be telling the truth and not shading statements. Complete candidness is mandatory.
(This is precisely the problem with New York Attorney General Letitia James’ statements to the courts in her current lawfare attack on the VDARE Foundation.)
But for the Biden Regime, lying to a court is a small act compared to the imperative of replacing the Historic American Nation.
As for the case at hand, the court should reject Biden’s preposterous claims and declare the Great Replacement Parole Amnesties illegal and unconstitutional.
