While national attention has been focused on the upcoming midterm elections for U.S. House and Senate, many have overlooked state races like the Wisconsin gubernatorial election, which has been described as the most important in the nation.

A new FBI report indicates that murder rates increased during 2021, while violent crime decreased overall. However, the agency is facing criticism over the credibility of its data, which relies heavily on estimation due to a lack of participation by law enforcement agencies—including those in crime hubs like Los Angeles and New York City:
“The overwhelming lack of law enforcement participation presents a challenge when assessing the true state of nationwide crime in America,” said Jillian Snider, the policy director for the R Street Institute’s criminal justice and civil liberties team.
Snider, a retired NYPD cop, said everyone should “proceed with caution” in using this data for new criminal justice policy.
The FBI’s latest statistics show violent crime dropped last year — but the data fails to account for thousands of places, including big cities like NYC and LA.— Craig McCarthy (@createcraig) October 5, 2022
Experts say the data has glaring holes due to an “overwhelming” lack of participation by police.https://t.co/zfd9BfjHNq
When thinking about illegal immigration, immigration from Central America typically comes to mind. However, more and more immigrants are coming from countries beyond our neighbors directly to the south of us:
Undocumented crossings at the U.S. southern border have long been dominated by people from Mexico and Central America — but for the first time since at least the turn of the century, migrants from other nations made up the majority of those stopped by authorities.Read more
After months of Democrats continually denying its existence, the left exploded with outrage after the Biden Border Crisis reached Martha's Vineyard, home to former President Obama and liberal stronghold. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis relocated 50 migrants there earlier this week.

There is no greater example of the breakdown of law and order under the Biden administration than the crisis on our southern border. According to a report by CNN, the crisis is the deadliest it's ever been, with a record number of migrants who've died crossing the border during the last fiscal year:
Nearly 750 migrants have died at the southern border this fiscal year, a record that surpasses last year's total by more than 200 people, according to Department of Homeland Security figures shared with CNN. . .Read more
Last night, President Biden gave a speech in front of Independence Hall that was billed as an opportunity to unify the country However, the President's speech was purely divisive, gaslighting in an attempt to deflect from the failures of his own administration.
That was the most demagogic, outrageous, and divisive speech I have ever seen from an American president. Joe Biden essentially declared all those who oppose him and his agenda enemies of the republic. Truly shameful. pic.twitter.com/ZcJX2BbZlt— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) September 2, 2022
The Biden Crime Crisis is exploding in Democrat strongholds across the country, illustrating the jarring reality of Leftist, soft-on-crime policies. In New York City, five people were murdered in shootings this past weekend alone.

The breakdown of law and order on our southern border with Mexico has reached new heights with over 2 million migrant encounters in fiscal year 2022 alone:

Last week, Congressman and New York gubernatorial candidate Lee Zeldin was attacked while giving a campaign speech. Zeldin, who was ironically giving a speech about bail reform during the attack, predicted that the assailant would be released. Unfortunately, this prediction came true. (The attacker was subsequently arrested again after federal charges were filed.)
A man tried to assassinate @RepLeeZeldin with a knife. Thankfully, Lee is safe, but his attacker is already released back on the streets.— Kevin McCarthy (@GOPLeader) July 22, 2022
Democrats’ soft-on-crime policies are outrageous, but since Lee is a Republican, the media will largely ignore the attack.
