Democrats who support open borders now complain when Texas, Arizona send illegal migrants to their cities
By JD Heyes // Jul 31, 2022

Democrats are nothing if not massive hypocrites, especially when it comes to the issue of illegal immigration.


Most Democratic leaders are all in favor of Joe Biden's open borders policies until they have to deal with hordes of illegal immigrants themselves.

Last spring, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott vowed to begin bussing migrants who had illegally crossed into his state to Washington, D.C., as a means of punishing Democrats and Biden for refusing to get serious about border security.

"Abbott announced last week that he was directing the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) to transport migrants released from federal custody in Texas to the nation’s capital and other locations outside his state," Fox News reported in April, shortly after the GOP governor made his pledge.

"By busing migrants to Washington, D.C., the Biden administration will be able to more immediately meet the needs of the people they are allowing to cross our border," Abbott said in a statement at the time.

"Texas should not have to bear the burden of the Biden administration’s failure to secure our border," he added.

Not long after, the first busses from Texas full of illegal aliens began arriving in the nation’s capital. Arizona Governor, Doug Ducey followed suit and began busing illegal aliens to D.C. as well.

The White House initially dismissed Abbott's original plan as a "publicity stunt," but Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser is now asking for federal assistance in dealing with the crush of migrants because they are now taking up all available space in the city's homeless shelters while absorbing other resources.

Bowser discussed the issue during a recent interview on CBS's "Face the Nation."

“So, I want to ask you, The New York Times had this piece on the housing crisis and homelessness in America and it highlighted D.C. as just one of those cities that has just persistently not had enough housing to meet demand,” host Margaret Brennan said before asking: “You’ve been working on reducing homelessness. Is the prime issue supply?”

“Well, we’ve been working on creating affordable housing and producing more and preserving more. And we are among the jurisdictions, I would say, that lead the nation in being a local partner in production. So, just in the last seven years, we’ve invested more than $1.4 billion in doing exactly that,” Bowser began.

“We’re equally invested in making homelessness rare, brief and non-recurring in our city. And we have a plan to get there. We’ve seen our rates of family homelessness, for example, decrease by 78 percent. Chronic homelessness also. We’re attacking and driving those numbers down for most categories,” she said.

Brennan continued along the line of questioning: "The Washington Post reported last week that homeless shelters in D.C. were filling up and groups are getting overwhelmed by these buses that the governors of Texas and Arizona are sending here full of migrants. How significant is this influx? How many people?"

"Well, this is a very significant issue," Bowser responded. "We have, for sure, called on the federal government to work across state lines to prevent people from really being tricked into getting on buses. We think they’re largely asylum seekers who are going to final destinations that are not Washington, D.C."

First off, they are not "tricked" into getting on the buses. The migrants know exactly where they are going.

Bowser isn't the only Democrat to complain. New York City Mayor Eric Adams is complaining, too – only, Biden is sending migrants to his city, not Abbott or Ducey.

Abbott responded to Adams' complaints: "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.

"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. I launched our border busing mission back in April to help our local partners, busing over 5,500 migrants to Washington, D.C. so far. Texas has not bused any migrants to New York.

"Instead, it is President Biden who has flown planeloads of migrants to New York. Mayor Adams should address his frustration with migrants to the root cause: Joe Biden."
