It’s Just Different!

There were some comments made this week by the Mayor of Washington, D.C., about the influx of illegal immigrants arriving in her city from Texas. The Democrat party has pretty much condemned the actions of Texas Governor Abbott in busing illegal immigrants to Washington (although many of us believe that is the perfect solution). On July 28, I reported on recent statements by New York City Mayor Eric Adams and Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser complaining about the influx of illegal immigrants to their cities. This is a problem our border states have been dealing with for the past eighteen months. In that article I mentioned the late-night flights our government is providing to move illegal immigrants from the border to a suburban airport north of New York City.

On Saturday, The American Thinker posted an article describing how White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre replied when asked what the difference was between the government’s late-night flights and Governor Abbott’s busing the illegal immigrants to Washington, D.C.

The article reports:

REPORTER: “What’s the difference between Texas busing migrants to DC, and the federal government flying migrants to, say New York, in the middle of the night?”

KJP: “It’s very different, because we’re not using migrants as a political pawn.”

…So, when they do it, it’s an altruistic action intended to share with Americans the good fortune to have their communities flooded with illiterate, unskilled people, many of whom are cartel members, and all of whom are here illegally, speak no English, and come for the welfare seeded into American communities. But when Texas, with a completely broken, dangerous border, shares this bounty of humanity with D.C., those same people become political pawns. Many were quick to spot the hypocrisy (hat tip: Twitchy)…

The article concludes:

That she (Karine Jean-Pierre) is the communication face of the Biden administration is open to several interpretations. First, we are being governed by half-wits, which is bad. Second, we are governed by people who believe the American people are half-wits, which is worse.

And then there’s the third, and worst, possible conclusion: We are governed by people who couldn’t care less about what Americans think. This means that, looking ahead to the elections, the Biden administration is confident that it’s got the systems locked up so tightly that, even if the American people push back a bit in November, come the 2024 election, we’ll see a solid repeat of what happened in 2020—namely, an election that Republicans cannot possibly win, whether in the White House or in Congress.

When Reality Shows Up

One America News posted an article on Tuesday about what appears to be a change of attitude on the part of New York City Mayor Eric Adams. It seems that New York City is being overwhelmed by the surge of illegal immigrants looking to make a home in the city.

The article reports:

New York City Mayor Eric Adams sounded the alarm on the surge of illegal aliens coming to the Big Apple. During a press conference Sunday, Adams warned the city about the massive influx.

One of his campaign priorities was standing up for “undocumented New Yorkers” by making sure NYC remained a “sanctuary city.” He doubled down on that promise by informing residents that right now “this is an all hands on deck” moment.

Adams went on to say residents must all be on board after asking the administration for help last week while calling the migrants a “real burden on New Yorkers.” Border towns are familiar with NYC’s plight as more than 3 million migrants have surged into the country since Joe Biden took office.

Adams pleaded with the White House to provide aid to help accommodate the more than 2,800 people who recently entered the city’s shelter system. The Mayor was quick to blame migrants sent by Texas and Arizona, but also acknowledged federal migrant flights have contributed to the total sum. Adams listed a number of services for migrants he would like to be financed by federal tax dollars.

The problems New York City is encountering have been an everyday challenge for cities along America’s southern border since the Biden administration took office. These problems have been ignored by Democrat leaders in other parts of the country. Now that the illegal aliens are moving north, some Democrat leaders are beginning to notice the problem.

On July 17th, Fox News reported:

Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser appeared on CBS’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday to discuss the persistent homelessness problem plaguing her city.

Host Margaret Brennan brought up a Washington Post report that suggested homeless shelters are now being filled with illegal immigrants being bused in from Texas and Arizona.

Bowser admitted that it’s a “significant issue” and called on the federal government to get more involved as she fears illegal immigrants are being “tricked” into traveling to her city.

On April 6th, I quoted a report from The New York Post:

The White House has quietly resumed its after-dark charter flights of underage migrants to a suburban airport north of New York City — after a Post expose led to their suspension last year.

The Post watched as a group of migrant teens got off an Avelo Airlines plane that arrived at the Westchester County Airport near White Plains at 9:25 p.m. Thursday. The group then boarded three waiting buses that drove off about 50 minutes later.

The Democrats are all for illegal immigration until it comes to their city.

 

Let The Awakening Begin

On Thursday, Just the News reported that Victor Jimenez, a former spokesperson for Washington, D.C., Democratic Mayor Muriel Bowser, has switched to the Republican party because of the policies of the Biden administration.

The article reports:

Victor Jimenez told Fox News host Tucker Carlson that until recently he “lead public information officer at [Bowser’s] office for community affairs” and worked prior to that in a similar role for Latino outreach.

“The reason I switched parties is because of everything that’s going on in the country right now,” Jimenez, an Afro-Dominican immigrant, told Carlson. “We see immigration through the roof right now, and that is affecting a lot of Hispanic families in my home state of Virginia. And those are people who are already struggling with making ends meet.”

Jimenez cited immigration issues as the major reason for leaving the Democratic Party, including what the considers party leaders’ unsuccessful efforts to get control of the record number of migrants attempting to cross the southern U.S. border.

“If you look at the southern border, we have thousands of people who are just waiting there,” he said. “And I’m not saying we have good people try to come into the country with good intentions, but we also have bad people coming into the country with bad intentions. People with illegal guns and drugs and people who are running from their law enforcement in their own country.

“Being Hispanic and Black, I should be Democrat by default. But I am going against their narrative and I feel like right now everything is crumbling for the Democrats.”

Mr. Jimenez stated that he voted for Glenn Youngkin in Virginia’s gubernatorial election.

The article notes:

Jimenez called the defeat of former Virginia Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe by Youngkin, a first-time politician and former businessman, “the beginning of the end” for the Democrats, and precursor for what could be a very painful 2022 election cycle for the party currently in power in D.C.

I doubt that we will ever see the ‘end’ for the Democrats, but I would celebrate the end of some of their policies.

I Think She Has This Backwards

The Conservative Treehouse posted an article today that included the following screenshot:

Now in case you are wondering why I might post this letter, let me refresh your memory. This is the same Mayor who refused to enlist the support of the national guard during the Black Lives Matter riots in the summer of 2020. This is the same Mayor whose police stood by as people leaving the White House after President Trump’s acceptance speech in 2019 were harassed and assaulted.

The article concludes:

When you see that justice is measured, not by due process, but by compulsion; when you see that in order to invoke your first amendment right to speech, you need to obtain permission from the same voices who rebuke the constitution; when you see that justice is determined by those who leverage, not in law, but in politics; when you see that men get power over individual liberty by graft and by scheme, and your representatives don’t protect you against them, but protect themselves against you; when you see corruption holding influence and individual liberty so easily dispatched and nullified; you may well know that your freedom too is soon to perish….

Prayers are needed for a peaceful protest. I suspect that some of the information that will be coming out about the 2020 election at the time of the protest will be stunning.
