The sanctuary cities of New York and Washington, DC have become overwhelmed with illegal immigrants, as Texas continues to send them buses full of migrants.
According to Axios, thousands of migrants have been sent from both Texas and Arizona to the two Democrat-run cities, both of which have committed to protecting illegal immigrants from deportation with “sanctuary” designations that restrict local law enforcement from cooperating with federal immigration agencies. After the 2016 election, Washington, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser reaffirmed the city’s sanctuary status, stating “We celebrate our diversity and respect all DC residents no matter their immigration status.”
Texas Governor Greg Abbott said on Friday that his state has sent over 7,000 migrants to the nation’s capital since April, and at least 900 to New York since August 5 as a part of Operation Lone Star .
“Before we began busing migrants to New York, it was just Texas and Arizona that bore the brunt of all the chaos and problems that come with it,” Abbott said in a statement this week. “Now, the rest of America can understand exactly what is going on.”
DC Mayor Muriel Bowser said the city has reached a “tipping point” in its effort to help migrants, calling for help from the National Guard for a second time to aid the migrants and provide infrastructure, after previously being denied . “We need help from our federal partners as we seek to stabilize and manage our operating environment in this critical moment,” she wrote in her plea to the Pentagon.
The progressive mayor also revealed that she has requested that the Biden administration give migrants similar treatment to refugees of war.
“We, likewise, encourage the federal government, as I have expressed to White House officials, to help asylum seekers in ways similar to systems set up for Afghan and Ukrainian […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
