Suddenly illegal immigration is a problem for the mayors of Washington, D.C. and New York. Let’s hope Governors Abbot and DeSantis will spread this “problem” to more Democrat-controlled cities. From Jordan Case at thebluestateconservative.com:
Governors in states along our southern border have been vocal in their concerns regarding illegal immigration for years. Their school and health care systems can’t handle the additional workload, they explained. The financial burden placed on their taxpayers was excessive and unfair, they shouted. And the fact that such migrants were entering their states unvetted posed a serious threat to the health and security of their communities, they complained.
But government officials elsewhere in the country, particularly in our federal government and in blue cities such as New York and Washington D.C., dismissed the pleas from governors such as Greg Abbott in Texas and Doug Ducey in Arizona. Both Ducey and Abbott are, after all, Republicans; and Republicans just don’t like the brown people that come across their border with Mexico. They’re just whining bigots, that’s all.
Then this past April, both Abbott and Ducey had had enough. The Biden Administration’s hands-off policies and refusals to secure our border were overwhelming law enforcement in their states as well as virtually every other public service offering from their governments. So, Abbott and Ducey took matters into their own hands.
