WASHINGTON, DC, Aug 10 — It appears that the socialist mayors of New York and Washington, DC aren’t very social after all. The tired, huddled masses and wretched refuse who yearn to breathe free are not very welcomed in their towns, notwithstanding the inspired greeting of the Statue of Liberty.
New York Mayor Eric Adams and DC Mayor Muriel Bowser are quite distressed and not very welcoming to the influx of illegal immigrants and they’re blaming it on the Governors of Texas and Arizona. The federal government is not helping Governors Greg Abbott and Doug Ducey deal with the invasion of illegals in their border states and so they took matters into their own hands and have been sharing the burden by sending the intruders north. Mayor Adams calls it a “real burden on New Yorkers” and Mayor Bowser alleges that the migrants are being sent north against their wishes. It seems to me that Governors Abbott and Ducey also believe it’s a burden that the illegals are being let loose in their states and so President Biden doesn’t give them an option.
Governor Abbott issued a statement, declaring that “Mayor Adams’ problem is not with Texas. It is with President Biden’s refusal to stop this border crisis and secure our southern border. President Biden’s open border policies created this ongoing humanitarian crisis, allowing record-high illegal crossings and deadly drugs like fentanyl to flood into our state. [It’s] a crisis that has overrun and overwhelmed our border towns and communities across our state, whose requests for help have gone ignored and unanswered by the Biden Administration.”
Abbott also pointed out to the Mayor of New York that he has not sent illegals to his town. Rather it is President Biden “who has flown planeloads of migrants to New York City.” But last week he told Fox News that he sent his first busload of illegals to New York City as part of his personal “share the burden” initiative.
Abbott did admit, however, that Texas has bused 5,500 migrants to Washington, DC. And Mayor Bowser, in an appearance on CBS’ Face the Nation, claimed that “they’re being tricked” into getting on those buses.
Fox quoted the Texas governor as saying Washington, DC and New York City are “the ideal destination for these migrants, who can receive the abundance of city services and housing that Mayor Eric Adams has boasted about within his sanctuary city. I hope he follows through on his promise of welcoming all migrants with open arms so that our overrun and overwhelmed border towns can find relief,” the Texas governor said.
Ken Paxton, Texas Attorney General, was quick to reject Bowser’s claim that the migrants were being deceived. He told the Washington Examiner “Mayor Bowser should direct her frustration to her friends in the Biden administration for their complete and utter refusal to secure our border and enforce our immigration laws. The illegal immigrants who are coming to Washington, DC, are doing so voluntarily largely because of Muriel Bowser’s own previous actions affirming Washington, DC, as a ‘sanctuary city.’ As they’ve done with inflation and a whole host of other issues, Democrat-elected officials in Washington refuse to acknowledge the consequences of their radical policies.”
Governor Abbott calls it an “atrocity” that the president has deliberately left the back door of America open allowing intruders, both good and bad, to cross over and wreak havoc in his state. Abbott says he [President Biden] has an obligation to secure the border; he’s turned “a blind eye to security-based issues by allowing people on terrorist watch lists to come into the United States of America.”
In an interview with Fox News’ Neil Cavuto, Lt. Chris Olivarez, the spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety, told Cavuto that as a result of the president’s open border policy some 7,000 to 8,000 illegals come across each and every day. It’s “overwhelming [our] limited resources…If those mayors from New York and Washington, D.C. really want to get to the root cause of this whole situation, they need to voice their concerns to the federal government, which has completely neglected to secure the border.”
Fox News reports that more than half a million known “gotaways” have sneaked across the U.S.-Mexico border since fiscal year 2022 began on October 1.
