Gov Kristi Noem draws red line, will not allow illegal migrant children to be relocated to South Dakota

As the crisis at the southern U.S. border continues to worsen and President Joe Biden’s administration scrambles to find safe and clean housing for a record number of unaccompanied illegal migrant children crossing the border, some Republican governors are taking a preemptive stand.

According to the Washington Examiner, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem (R) made clear in a Wednesday tweet that the Biden administration is not welcome to relocate illegal immigrants to her state, telling illegal immigrants to “call me when you’re an American.” 

What’s happening?

Noem, who has long held a hardline stance against illegal immigration, similar to former President Donald Trump’s approach, is one of a growing number of Republican governors who want to make clear to the Biden administration that their respective states are open for relocating tens of thousands of illegal migrant children.

“South Dakota won’t be taking any illegal immigrants that the Biden Administration wants to relocate. My message to illegal immigrants… call me when you’re an American,” Noem tweeted.

Noem’s announcement came shortly after South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster signed an executive order stating that the Biden administration would not be allowed to shuffle any of the tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors currently being held in border facilities to his state’s foster homes or other housing.

“The heartbreaking humanitarian crisis on our border was created by the Biden Administration. Sending unaccompanied migrant children from the border to states like South Carolina only makes the problem worse,” McMaster tweeted on Monday.

McMaster followed up on his executive order stressing that his top priority is his state’s own “vulnerable” children, and explained that taking in thousands of unaccompanied minors from the border would only serve to disrupt that priority, as far as resources are concerned.

New records set

According to Politico, as bad as February was as far as unaccompanied minors coming across the border, March was markedly worse.

Data released earlier this month from U.S. Customs and Border Patrol revealed that in the month of March alone, more than 18,800 unaccompanied minors poured across the southern U.S. border, marking a 100% increase from February’s number of 9,000.

Because of the unprecedented increase, the Biden administration has been forced to move rapidly to find expanded housing facilities, which was especially critical due to the COVID-19 pandemic and high likelihood that a number of children could be carrying the virus, thus decreasing maximum capacities for current holding facilities.

Biden’s administration is also facing a number of lawsuits, including legal action initiated by Missouri and Texas over the ending of Trump-era Migrant Protection Protocols, which were put in place by the former president to keep asylum seekers out of America while awaiting their asylum hearings.

Only time will tell how the Biden administration reacts to Republican governors shutting down their stats for overflow purposes, but it wouldn’t be a surprise if more states follow suit, as the last thing they want to do is take away resources from their own vulnerable populations during the pandemic.

    1. I wonder just how legal a recall pettetion and how many would sign such a nation wide to get rid of this jerk and his flunky Maybe we could sign soon and often

  1. All states should refuse to take care of these illegal aliens especially during the pandemic without them even being tested for covid it’s totally asanine but that’s the Biden administration for you.

    1. Send all of them to Joe’s hometown in Delaware. To his neighborhood and next door to him. Let him be responsible for all those that he invited to America without asking the citizens.

      1. I believe that we should send the entire border population to Deleware that means both adults and children

  3. We cant afford Biden rising our tax’s just to rise other peoples children we don’t owe them anything. The messed up their country because they ore sosilst

  4. Biden will lower our living standards for all these illegals We have veterans that deserve help. Tell Biden to give his homes and money to the illegals Biden is real stingy with his money he only gave 1000 to Charites . He is a very bad what be President

  5. Why Washington, DC and Porto Rico People not considered Immigrants if they are not a State? Or are they?
    Therefore, all those illegal immigrants should be sent to Washington, DC and Porto Rico as future States waiting to become American Citizens.
    It’s the two for one thing. Of course Joe and AOC would have to keep those entry numbers down.

  6. Noem is one of the best govs. in the country, and if all the govs. were like her, Trump would still be president! Biden and the Democrats are slowly, but surely, destroying this country. The question is, will the American people wake up to what is going on, before it is too late? I sure hope so, and if they do wake up to what is going on, there should be a whole lot of Democrats voted out of office in the next election! We shall see how smart the American people are!

    1. I voted for trump just wanted to be clear about that. They are all dishonest was trumps hands tied as much as we think they were, who really knows. I commended this and other governors but the simple truth is they has are continuing to screw up, COVID-19 should have never been put into force, national sodomy laws should be enforced and all the drugs for AIDS abolished.

  7. No Republican governor should take in these illegals. Abbott for one should have told Biden to stuff it! Texas should have shut these holding cells immediately or not allowed them to open in the first place!! If Biden wants them let him house them in Washington, California, and all other Dem States.

  8. Well, the Unamerican Digest got something right – ” who want to make clear to the Biden administration that their respective states are open for relocating tens of thousands of illegal migrant children.”

  9. Send them home or to live in the house with liberal Democrats who want their votes. And, it shouldn’t just be the children that aren’t accepted but the adults, too. They are invading our county. Throughout history, invaders were fired upon. It may be time it’s done here.

    I Only hope other red Give grow a pair & do the same. If Biden wants them let him put them in his home State,DC & other blue states that support his narrow minded,childish, spiteful incompetence !


    WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

    Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?

    I urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.


    HARRIS is guilty of violating 18US Code 2381 Treason, 18 US Code 2382 Misprision of Treason, 18US Code 2383 Rebellion or Insurrection, 18 US Code 2384 Seditious Conspiracy and 18 US CODE 2385 Advocating Overthrow of Government!

    Can you tolerate gasoline prices, product prices all going up, the WH being run by Harris, Pelosi and Schumer? Literally destroying our country, allowing thousands of illegals into our country bringing in God knows what diseases?

    Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!

    Members of the House

    Members of the Senate


    Keep in mind: SILENCE = ACCEPTANCE

  12. Send unaccompanied minor border crashers back home, by the plane load if necessary !!!

    Only allow legal immigration with all appropriate papers and including enough legal money for a month’s worth of food and other necessities.

  13. Every one of the State governors need to stand up and say we will not except any illegal immigrants in our state then they will be forced to go back where they came from and old China Joe doesn’t need to give them room and board either they wanted to come her so bad illegally they are on their own unless they go through the legal process to be here and not illegally. And we don’t need to give them jobs because there are plenty of Americans that can’t even put food on their tables. Send every one of the illegals back to their country where they came from and close the gates to the border and say no way no more entry the border is closed

  14. Biden administration and all these Democratic people who wanted these people here need to be brought up on insurrection charges for endangering the lives of the American people

    1. Great comment as indeed the real insurrection came from President Biden and the Progressive left to open the border and throwing away any National Security or safety to the American citizens of this USA.

  15. I think the migrant ought to be provided tents and put the illegals in front of the White House, Pelosi’s ,Shift , Schummer,AOC ,Talib and all of the democrat’ Houses so they can care for them. That’s my wish list. this immigration is breaking our countries laws. why aren’t they holding the Democrats accountable? I hope when a Republican gets in they round them up and send them back till they come legally. Sanctuary cities are illegal too. Murphy and all the states that protect them ought to be charged for not releasing them to the authorities

  16. Inviting, inciting and encouraging ILLEGALS to invade this country is TREASON! Politicals who involve themselves by supporting this should be prosecuted as the traitors they are!

  17. *** Biden Needs To Be “Impeached” & (Removed From Office “Permanently!”) ~ (And There Needs To Be “Term Limits” On The Rest Of The “Libtarded Democraps” In The House!) ~ (It’s “Disgusting” How They Put “Illegal Immigrants” Needs “Above” True Americans Needs!) ***

  18. We need all these governors to do the same thing or this will never stop. Of course these stupid democratic governors don’t have the backbone to do it as they want to increase their voter base and the money they will get from Washington
