Armed black rights groups march demanding Biden 'close the border'

‘Take your a** home!’ Heavily-armed black rights groups march through Austin chanting anti-illegal migrant slogans, demands Biden ‘close the border’ and calls for ‘reparations to be paid NOW’

  • Activists with black self-defense groups held an armed ‘Second Amendment Unity Walk’ on Saturday in Austin, Texas where they marched to the State House 
  • The group called for President Biden to close the borders and demanded reparations for descendants of enslaved people and a hate crime bill protecting Black Americans
  • The group was led by the The Elmer ‘Geronimo’ Pratt Pistol & Rifle Gun Club
  • The march comes after Texas Gov. Abbott sent two buses of migrants to VP Kamala Harris’ home and Gov. DeSantis sent a plane of 50 migrants to Martha’s Vineyard 
  • Harris slammed Republicans for ‘playing games’ with human lives for busing migrants across the country 

Armed activists with a coalition of black self-defense groups marched in Austin, Texas over the weekend calling for an end to illegal immigration and demanding that President Biden close the borders.

Some of the activists chanted ‘close the borders’ and ‘take your a** home’ as they marched toward the Texas Capitol in the ‘Second Amendment Unity Walk’ on Saturday. 

The march was led by The Elmer ‘Geronimo’ Pratt Pistol & Rifle Gun Club. Their demands also included reparations for descendants of enslaved people and a hate crime bill protecting Black Americans.

The group faced opposition from a handful of Trump supporters and other protesters gathered at the Texas State Capitol to support January 6 defendants.

Saturday’s march comes after Texas Gov. Abbott and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey sent thousands of migrants by bus to Washington, D.C., New York City, and Chicago, Illinois – all three sanctuary cities that have pledged not to cooperate with federal immigration enforcement.

Other than The Elmer ‘Geronimo’ Pratt Pistol & Rifle Gun Club, several other groups were involved including the Black Riders Liberation Party.

‘Reparations now!’ the group chanted, according to Ford Fischer who tweeted from the march.

‘We don’t say ‘hands up, don’t shoot!” one explained. ‘Guns up!’ they chanted. ‘Shoot back!’ 

The activists continued their march through Austin holding a massive sign that read ‘Reparations now!’

‘Close the borders!’ they chanted. One yelled ‘build the wall’ but the phrase didn’t catch on.

‘Immigrants, we’ve been here!’ another person yelled. ‘Take your ass home!’ 

Vehicles honked their horns at the activists as they marched through the intersections chanting: ‘What do we want? Closed borders! When do we want it? Now!’

Once at the capitol building, a speaker summarized the group’s demands as ‘Reparations now, delineation, a stop to illegal immigration.’

Aside from The Elmer ‘Geronimo’ Pratt Pistol & Rifle Gun Club, several other groups were involved including the Black Riders Liberation Party

‘We need an anti-crime bill for Black Americans.’

‘And we need the same protection act that the Native Americans have against CPS for our Black American children.’

‘Republicans, do not dare to make the mistake of thinking you will get our vote just because we believe in exercising our Second Amendment.’

‘Yes, I’m talking to you Ted Cruz and Governor Abbott.’

‘Don’t think we are standing with you because we are against illegal immigration.’

The speaker also called out Vice President Kamala Harris to step up. 

Nick Bezzel, one of the activists with the group, advocated reparations for descendants of enslaved people as a ‘justice claim.’

‘What we don’t wanna hear is ‘America doesn’t have the money’ – Ukraine!’ he told the group.

‘That could be going to the children of the people who built this nation.’

The march was held in the days after Vice President Kamala Harris slammed Republicans for dragging migrants to locations across the country for the ‘sake of a headline’

He later told Ford Fischer that they brought attention to the ‘Black agenda’ including reparations and other legislation.

He then said they plan to go into the Texas State House in January to lobby for legislation.

‘We do have a problem with illegal immigration,’ he said. ‘Because a lot of times, jobs are taken away from Black people. Black people are locked out from employment due to illegal immigration.’

Another activist on the walk stated: ‘I am a racist’ and then broke down the word, claiming that as a ‘pianist’ practices piano, ‘I am a racist, I practice my race.’

‘I practice hard too. Get good at it.’

The march was held in the days after Vice President Kamala Harris slammed Republicans for dragging migrants to locations across the country for the ‘sake of a headline’ after Governor Greg Abbott dropped two buses full of asylum-seekers off in front of her home. 

The vice president was put in charge of the migration crisis by President Joe Biden, but her office quickly branded the role as addressing the root causes why people flee to the U.S. from Northern Triangle countries.

Vice President Kamala Harris slammed Republicans for ‘playing games’ with human lives and making migrants part of a political stunt for the ‘sake of a headline’ 

A class action lawsuit was opened into Florida Governor Ron DeSantis after he flew a plane of 50 migrants to the wealthy island of Martha’s Vineyard off the coast of Massachusetts.

‘They’re playing games,’ Harris told Vice News in an interview released Thursday. ‘These are political stunts with real human beings who are fleeing harm.’

While Republican governors continue to send migrants to sanctuary cities, a majority of Democrats agree that these jurisdictions should bear the brunt of the immigration crisis.

The CRC Research survey shows that 63 percent of likely voters think the burden should not only be on border states – and 51 percent of Democrats agree.

But Harris said the governors are just ‘doing it for the sake of a headline.’ 

‘What we’re seeing with these governors is irresponsible and it’s inhumane,’ she added in the interview released just three days after new figures revealed two million migrants have been arrested at the southern border in a year for the first time in history.

‘Frankly it’s a dereliction of duty when you are an elected leader to play those kinds of games with human lives and human beings,’ Harris said, urging Republicans to be ‘part of the solution. 

She also blamed former President Donald Trump and his administration’s policies for ‘decimating’ the process designed to help people come to the country and claim asylum when fleeing their homes.

Abbott and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey have sent thousands of migrants by bus to Washington, D.C., New York City and now Chicago, Illinois – all three sanctuary cities that have pledged not to cooperate with federal immigration enforcement.

REVEALED: The shocking numbers that show the unprecedented impact of illegal immigration into America that should make EVERY politician wake up to the crisis — as exposed by TODD BENSMAN’s expert analysis 

Todd Bensman is Senior National Security Fellow for the Center for Immigration Studies and author of ‘Overrun: How Joe Biden Unleashed the Greatest Border Crisis in U.S. History.’ He previously served for nine years as senior intelligence analyst for the Texas Department of Public Safety’s Intelligence and Counterterrorism Division.

All it took was the arrival of 50 migrants on Martha’s Vineyard to wake Democrats and the mainstream media up to the reality of America’s historic and transformational immigration crisis.

Who knew?

All they needed was 19 months, dating back to the start of the Biden administration, to be wrenched out of their partisan fog to recognize the scope of this humanitarian disaster.

It’s sickening, but here we are.

On Monday, The New York Times grudgingly ran a story that used the ‘H’ word to describe the ‘historic pace of undocumented immigrants entering the country.’

It is a pace that would have struck generations of Democrats as totally unacceptable, until recently.

This week, US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) at long last released statistics from August showing the stark numbers: More than 2.15 million encounters with immigrants on the southern border, between October 2021 and August 2022.

The Biden presidency could easily end with seven million or more new migrants in America – a population larger than the size of Los Angeles and Chicago combined.

The full reporting period, which runs through September, will probably end with 2.35 million encounters. 

By definition, an encounter happens each time a Border Patrol agent physically lays hands on an individual attempting to enter the country illegally, so one migrant may be countered multiple times. 

These numbers are literally off the charts.

2.15 million encounters is the highest number since the Eisenhower administration started keeping records in 1960.

It’s also up significantly from 1.7 million encounters during Biden’s first term – and even that was a record at the time.

For comparison, between 2010 and 2016, Border Patrol handled less than 500,000 encounters and never topped 400,000 in 2011, 2012 and 2015.

All together Border Patrol’s 17,000 agents have had to process immigrants approximately 4 million times since Biden became president.

And while millions were arrrested on the border, millions more got into America – and they will continue to do so.

The Biden administration itself has legally paroled some 1.4 million family members and unaccompanied minors into America bound only by the promise that they’ll report to immigration authorities someday.

Add to that at least another 900,000 ‘gotaways,’ which is a slang term once only used by Border Patrol agents to describe individuals who they suspect were able to evade capture.

The problem of ‘gotaways’ has become so pronounced that it is now part of the official lexicon.

Adding these two groups together, a total of more than at least 2.3 million illegal immigrants have entered America since Biden took office.

2.15 million encounters is the highest number since the Eisenhower administration started keeping records in 1960.

In this trend holds, and there’s no indication that it won’t, a second half of the Biden term could boost that number to some five million or higher.

If the administration follows through with its pledge to lift the Trump-era pandemic-related ‘Title 42,’ which sped the expulsion of migrants in the interest of public health, then as many as 540,000 migrants a month could pour in, according to intelligence community estimates.

In that case, the Biden presidency could easily end with seven million or more new migrants in America – a population larger than the size of Los Angeles and Chicago combined. 

To put this unprecedented migration in even sharper perspective — consider that over nearly six decades, 12 million legal immigrants were admitted to the US through Ellis Island in New York City’s Hudson Harbor.

At its peak, those numbers reached 1,004,756 in 1907, an average of 84,000 legal immigrants a month.

Under Biden, the average is 139,000 illegal immigrants per month.

Obviously, America has grown since the migrant waves through Ellis Island stopped, but the current period clearly rivals that transformational era in American history.

Ordinary Americans are already paying a steep price for this.

Mark Krikorian, executive director of the immigration policy think tank Center for Immigration Studies, estimates the lifetime fiscal cost of the illegal aliens Biden has let in so far at more than $100 billion.

That’s in addition to $140 billion a year taxpayers already bear for benefits and services to the longer-term illegal alien population.

But those aren’t the only costs.

Probably the very area of civic life where most Americans will first and most viscerally experience the impact of the Biden border crisis will be in the schools.

A 1982 Supreme Court ruling required enrollment of minors in public school regardless of immigration status no matter the costs or hardships.

In Austin Independent School District, teachers held protests in April 2022 drawing attention to a 400-student influx of immigrant teenagers from Central American nations at its International High School and Eastside Early College High School campus. Teachers complained they were left to give instruction in hallways and conference rooms.

In and around New York City, a significant surge of 5,000 immigrant children flooded into four counties in a single 11-month span through August 2021, posing a $139 million additional burden on New York taxpayers to educate them.

This is the story all across the country. Health and Human Services reported that 107,742 unaccompanied children were released to sponsors inside the U.S from October 2021 to July 2022.

Los Angeles county took in 4,579 children, Florida’s Miami-Dade county accepted 2,306 and Texas’ Harris county absorbed 7,170.

It’s impossible to determine from available public records exactly how many immigrant children have been enrolled in the nation’s public schools. 

But accounting for the surge of migrants under both the Biden and Trump administrations, probably close to two million have been added to the nation’s 49.5 million students in public schools, a four percentage increase over four years, by my estimation.

Long before frustrated Republican governors tried to force northern Democrats to ‘please, just pay attention to what is happening to all of us,’ no one said a word about the roaring conveyor belt that had already bused and flown many hundreds of thousands of border-crossers to cities all over America.

That machine runs full-throttle even now, pouring a biblical Noah’s Flood of foreign nationals into schools, homeless shelters, jobs and welfare lines across America.

Would liberal America just listen for a minute to what Republican governors are trying to say, they would know that millions more are on the way thus making an already-dire crisis that much more dire.

Perhaps, if they opened their ears and their eyes, they’d join with Republicans in a normal civil discourse about whether this permanent new condition is what everybody really wants.

And if it’s sustainable.
