The Democrat mayor of El Paso, Texas, has joined the Lone Star State campaign to send busloads of illegals to left-wing Northern states.
When even Democrats show that they understand that Joe Biden’s border crisis is destroying their communities, what can you say about the woke left’s insistence that such policies continue?
So, to step up to the plate is El Paso’s Democrat Mayor Oscar Lesser.
El Paso’s mayor says his city is at a breaking point. The city is opening a new shelter for illegal aliens. It has chartered five buses to transport some to New York, Chicago, and Denver. Now we’re talking, Mayor Oscar Leeser. He gave a press conference on Saturday and reported that 2,000 people are seeking asylum every day. The city’s shelter capacity has been exceeded. “The city of El Paso only has so many resources and we have come to … a breaking point right now,” the mayor said.
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has had nearly 2,000 migrant encounters daily in El Paso over the past few days, city data shows. Meanwhile, in Ciudad Juarez, which is opposite El Paso in Mexico, hundreds of migrants crossed the Rio Grande river and waited in a line to be processed by U.S. officials, according to Reuters.
The surge in migrants has exhausted several services and resources along the border, prompting Eagle Pass to sign an emergency declaration on Tuesday for funding for more resources, and rail operator, Union Pacific, said it had to halt service to Mexico.
Mayor Leeser is a Democrat. He pointed out that all the El Paso buses are filled with illegals voluntarily being transported to other cities. Critics like to accuse Governor Abbott of forcing illegals on migrant buses but the truth is they ask to go to whatever city they are trying to get to. Why not? It’s free transportation for them. Food and water is provided for them on the buses. They sign forms saying they are leaving Texas voluntarily. “I think it’s really important to note that we have a broken immigration system,” Lesser said. “It’s the same thing over and over again.”
This is the perfect tactic and one that is finally starting to get results in places like New York City and Chicago.
The slow-witted Democrat voters are finally starting to realize that their stupid “sanctuary city” ideals were all well and good when there weren’t many illegals coming their way. But now that tens of thousands are swamping their schools, their hospitals, their jails, and — especially — their budgets, suddenly that whole “sanctuary” dealio has started looking like a very, very bad idea.
Its long past time to close down our southern border, deport millions of illegals, and reinstitute the rule of law for our immigration system.Commentary
