Activist Group Suing DeSantis Received Nearly $1.4 Million From Soros Network
An activist group which has filed a class-action lawsuit against Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and other Florida officials over last week’s migrant flights to Martha’s Vineyard received nearly $1.4 million from George Soros’ Open Society Network.
According to Fox News, nonprofit immigrant advocacy group Lawyers for Civil Rights filed the suit on behalf of Alianza Americas, which was described in a press release as “a network of migrant-led organizations supporting immigrants across the United States.”
The lawsuit was filed in the District of Massachusetts, and alleges that DeSantis and other officials “designed and executed a premeditated, fraudulent and illegal scheme centered on exploiting this vulnerability for the sole purpose of advancing their own personal, financial and political interests.”
According to Open Society Foundation records, Alianza Americas received $1,383,947 between 2016 and 2020 – with grants coming from three Soros nonprofits; Open Society Institute, Open Society Policy Center and Foundation to Promote Open Society.
The grants were to support policy advocacy on immigration, a Global Compact for Migration initiative and to strengthen the group’s international work in Central America and Mexico.
The law firm filing the suit, Lawyers for Civil Rights, received $50,000 from the Borealis Philanthropy in 2019, tax forms show. Borealis is a left-wing donor-advised fund that acts as an intermediary steering Democratic money to organizations.

Another liberal group, the MacArthur Foundation, gave Alianza Americas $1.26 million between 2008 and 2020.
The class-action lawsuit filed by Lawyers for Civil Rights alleges that migrants were told they were headed towards Boston or Washington, “which is completely false,” and that they were induced to cross state lines under false pretenses – carrying perks such as $10 McDonald’s gift certificates.
DeSantis’ office, meanwhile, says that 50 Venezuelan migrants voluntarily signed forms agreeing to be flown to Martha’s Vineyard last week, and called the lawsuit legally flawed.
“I agree to hold the benefactor or its designated representatives harmless of all liability arising out of or in any way relating to any injuries and damages that may occur during the agreed transport to locations outside of Texas until the final destination of Massachusetts,” states the form.
DeSantis’ office cited the form as evidence that the migrants were not misled.This post was originally published at Zero Hedge
They Just Admitted It
They told me immigration was a net benefit and diversity was a strength.
Now they tell me it’s a punishment for colonialism.

Migrants turn German city of Plauen into no-go zone
Another once-quiet German city is now turning into a hotspot for crime, warns the city’s mayor
Saxony is generally considered to have some of the lowest migrant numbers in Germany, and for years, commentators and newspapers made a point of lambasting the region’s anti-immigrant sentiment when there were few living there.
Now, the mayor of Plauen is desperate as crime and violence soar in his city due to migrants dominating the city center, harassing pedestrians and committing serious crimes, including a case of attempted manslaughter.
Mayor Steffen Zenner (CDU) says there are “repeated ugly scenes of violence and physical altercations in the middle of our city center.”
He told the Bild newspaper that “the violence is mainly caused by migrants,” but emphasizes “that the majority of migrants living in Plauen abide by law and order.”
The first incident the mayor notes was on April 29 involving a large-scale brawl at Postplatz, which shocked those in the downtown area. Police say that Iraqi, Romanian and Syrian youths were involved, with an investigation opened into dangerous bodily harm.
Another scene of violence occurred the following week, involving a physical altercation between North Africans, Kurds and Arabs, this time in a dance hall in Plauen. The following day, the feuding parties went to settle the conflict at Postplatz, which saw a Syrian stab an Iraqi. The knife attack was nearly deadly, with emergency services barely able to save the man’s life.
In the city of 65,000, locals are increasingly avoiding the city center, according to Bild. Businesses are complaining that their sales are falling due to the violence, and employees are using back exits to avoid the crowds of migrants occupying the center. Bild now describes the area as a “no-go zone” for many living and working there.
Mayor Zenner is now calling for “upper limits on immigration, as well as European and national border security measures that are transnational and concerted.” The mayor says that 40 percent of the non-Ukrainian migrants in the city have deportation orders, but they are not being removed. Germany is well known for its lower deportation rate, even for convicted migrants. As Remix News reported in 2021, migrants with deportation orders committed 2,500 crimes in Saxony in 2020.
The Alternative for Germany (AfD) parliamentary group in Saxony says the CDU, to which Zenner belongs, is part of the problem. Saxon Interior Minister Armin Schuster (CDU) has repeatedly failed to deal with the crisis, according to the AfD.
Other German cities are facing similar problems involving public disorder and crime from Germany’s growing immigrant population, including the “green” university city of Freiburg, which has seen riots and scenes of violenceover the last year.This post was originally published at Remix News
Northern U.S. Border Encounters With Illegals More Than Double In 7 Months
“The northern border is less secure than it ever has been”
Encounters with undocumented illegal migrants have more than doubled in the past seven months on the NORTHERN U.S. border, according to Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data.
The figures show that Border Patrol agents recorded 4,827 migrant encounters between October 2022 and April along the U.S.-Canadian border.
Through the entire fiscal year 2022, Border Patrol along the northern border encountered 2,238 illegals.
NEW from me: Encounters of illegal migrants crossing the northern border more than doubled in the first 7 months of fiscal year 2023 compared to all of fiscal year 2022https://t.co/l6fDnb75PV @dailycaller— Jennie Taer (@JennieSTaer) May 18, 2023
The data also shows that of the close to 5000 who have crossed around half were from Mexico. They flew to Canada (no visa required) and then walked across the border there.
Sean Walsh, National Border Patrol Council President for the Swanton sector in Vermont, New York and New Hampshire has noted “The northern border is less secure than it ever has been and the security speaks for itself.”
“If we’re losing twelve times the amount of people just in this fiscal year alone than in the whole last year, the cartels and criminal organizations have taken advantage and exploited the border and this administration’s policies or lack of policies to address security,” Walsh added.
In March, CBP transferred agents from the southern border to the Swanton section of the northern border in an attempt to deal with the increased numbers.
Meanwhile, on the Southern border…
