America doesn’t just need a wall on the border, we need a wall in our tax code.

Three of the migrants who were flown in by Gov. DeSantis to Martha’s
Vineyard filed a lawsuit against the Florida governor claiming that they
were somehow lured to the sanctuary island.
The lawsuit is completely baseless since the “false promises and
false representations” that the migrants would get “employment, housing,
educational opportunities” were actually copied by Florida from a
brochure put out by the Massachusetts Office for Refugees and
It’s Massachusetts and the elites of Martha’s Vineyard who refused to honor their promises.
The lawyers representing the migrants, Yanet Doe, Pablo Doe, and
Jesus Doe, are from the Boston chapter of Lawyers for Civil Rights. The
national organization was created at the behest of JFK and RFK and
funded by the Ford Foundation making it an obviously partisan group.
Despite its partisan agenda, it functions as a 501(c)(3). As do many
other leftist lawfare groups.
Internal Radical Service
by David Horowitz and John Perazzo discusses how nonprofits are
defrauding “taxpayers into subsidizing an illegal invasion of the United
States” because “of the collusion of the White House and the I.R.S. in
supporting this subversion of the American immigration system.” The
pamphlet reveals how the tax code has become corrupted with nonprofits
facilitating the invasion every step of the way. Including through
Lawyers for Civil Rights represents the migrants and Alianza Americas, a “migrant-led” group which has received millions
from George Soros. Alianza also operates as a 501(c)(3) despite not
only lobbying for illegal aliens, but repeatedly engaging in political
advocacy, including denouncing Trump and Republicans, and cheering Biden and Democrat victories.
Soros’ Open Society Policy Center, a 501(c)(4), provided $150,000 in
funding in 2020 to Alianza to “support policy advocacy on immigration”.
Soros, a top Democrat donor who allegedly immigrated to this country under false pretenses, is a major funder of illegal alien activist groups. One of the projects funded by
Soros is “Notifica – Deportation Defense”, a smartphone app that alerts
lawyers of illegals. Unlike conservative free speech apps, Apple has
not removed Notifica from its app store. Also funding it was the Justice Department.
The organizations behind it, United We Dream and National Immigration Law Center, are C3s.
As discussed in the Freedom Center’s new pamphlet, Internal Radical Service,
tax regulations specifically state that “exempt purposes may generally
be equated with the public good, and violations of law are the
antithesis of the public good”. They clearly lay out that, “violation of
constitutionally valid laws is inconsistent with exemption under IRC
501(c)(3)” and that “planned activities that violate laws are not in
furtherance of a charitable purpose”.
Promoting illegal migration is plainly the “antithesis of the public
good” and a violation of basic border and national security. But C3’s
remain major players in the illegal alien pipeline.
And some of the lawfare is coming from almost fantastically wealthy left-wing groups.
The ACLU, which appears to have assets approaching a billion dollars,
has repeatedly filed lawsuits on behalf of illegal aliens and policies
that maintain open borders. The Southern Poverty Law Center, whose
endowment was recently estimated at over $700 million, has its
Immigration Justice Project setup. And local litigation is further
backed by gargantuan foundations like the Ford Foundation with assets of
over $17 billion.
The sheer scale of immigration litigation is massive and much of it
is carried on by non-profits like the American Immigration Council, a C3
founded by the Immigration Lawyers Association, the National
Immigration Law Center, a C3, the Asylum Seeker Advocacy Project, a C3,
and the National Immigration Justice Center from the Heartland Alliance, another C3 at whose shelters migrant children were allegedly forced to scrub toilets with their bare hands.
Heartland scored the “fourth-highest amount of federal dollars for
housing” illegal minors and was first scrutinized after “an employee was
accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a minor”.
Originally founded by Jane Addams, a co-founder of the ACLU and the
NAACP, the Heartland Institute conducts refugee resettlement and works
with migrants. The Institute brings in around $20 million a year and has
been involved in multiple immigration lawsuits.
The Immigrant Defenders Law Center is a C3 as is the Catholic Legal
Immigration Network, established by the Conference of Catholic Bishops,
HIAS, formerly known as the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society before dropping
its Jewish identity, and the International Refugee Assistance Project
which, along with its offices in Muslim countries, has a program to
provide legal aid to open borders migrants invading the United States.
The National Lawyers Guild, which has an extensive Communist history,
has its National Immigration Project. So do most leftist
litigation-oriented non-profits like Democracy Forward, chaired by
Clinton lawyer Marc Elias, a 501(4)(c), which interfaces with a number
of immigration lawfare groups. Even the NAACP which sued the Trump
administration over the end of the DACA program illegally legalizing
illegal aliens, is in the immigration litigation racket.
There are also numerous local counterparts like the Northwest
Immigrant Rights Project and specific demographic groups like Al Otro
Lado and the Haitian Bridge Alliance beyond counting.
Many immigration lawfare nonprofits first received 501(c)(3) status
in 2018 or 2019 indicating that the organization and deployment of these
groups was closely connected to Trump taking office. But even under
Biden, they continue to operate in order to facilitate the illegal alien
invasion and the demographic transformation of the country into a
leftist political fiefdom.
But immigration lawfare is no longer confined to conventional non-profits.
New York State has provided millions to fund the New York Immigrant
Family Unity Project, California plunged $35 million into its
Immigration Services Funding, and Nashville hijacked $1.8 million from
federal relief funds to fund the Tennessee Immigration and Refugee
Rights Coalition and Tennessee Justice For Our Neighbors.
Government funding of immigration lawfare is so widespread that the
Vera Institute of Justice, co-founded by a Soros trustee, claims that
there are “more than 50 publicly funded local and state deportation
defense programs nationwide”.
Academic institutions, many of them nonprofits, have immigration
lawfare built in like the Maryland Carey Law Immigration Clinic which
embeds a deportation defense machine into the university’s law school,
and the Immigration Justice Clinic at Cardozo Law School.
Law schools are becoming just another mobilization center for immigration lawfare on the U.S..
In The New Leviathan,
David Horowitz first warned of a massive leftist network that has since
become even vaster and also more specialized, branching out into very
specific areas as part of a larger master plan for destroying America.
Immigration lawfare now encompasses public-private partnerships between
governments and nonprofits, universities and virtually every major
leftist litigation and civil rights group in the country.
The millions of illegals invading America have their counterpart in
the many millions of dollars being spent on the hundreds of groups that
are doing everything from organizing caravans and flights, to cashing in
on housing them to waging a ruthless legal war to protect the invasion.
Writing of the way that the IRS has allowed open borders nonprofits to operate, Horowitz and Perazzo conclude in Internal Radical Service
that it’s impossible to read the tax code “without concluding that the
Internal Revenue Service itself is not only derelict in its duty but has
operated with criminal intent to violate its own statutes, indeed its
own mission – and on a massive scale.”
The scale of the invasion is a testament to the scale of the leftist subversion of our government.
As Horowitz wrote in Internal Radical Service, “The I.R.S. is the patron saint of a movement to break America’s immigration laws.”
Illegal aliens not only invade our country, violating our borders and
our laws, but they are the pawns of a vast network of leftist
nonprofits who flout the “public good” and “violations of law” in the
tax code, and then once here file lawsuits to rob taxpayers of even more
America doesn’t just need a wall on the border, we need a wall in our
tax code to end criminal nonprofits who operate with the purpose of
subverting our laws and destroying our nation.
