Illegal immigrants are fine, as long as they stay away from your city. The hypocrisy of New York and Washington D.C. elites is astounding. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:
New York is struggling to come up with a plan to deal with thousands of illegal immigrants being bused in from Texas, and the costs are starting to pile up. It’s another interesting development in the ongoing saga of the reverse Cloward-Piven strategy being used against open-border progressives in New York and Washington DC. So far, the tactic appears to be working.
The obvious irony of the situation is that leftist elites have long demanded that southern border states like Texas ignore constitutional laws on citizenship and take on the job of processing, feeding, housing and transporting millions of illegal immigrants every year (well beyond the efforts of federal border patrol) while New York can’t even handle 6000 of them.
Currently, costs for the ongoing surge in migrants bused into NYC are estimated at around $300 million. This is not accounting for the city’s plans to create a large processing center next to a hotel or housing facility designed to accommodate thousands of people at a time. New York’s Department of Homeless Services has been struggling to stay afloat and the so far their plans to open the processing center have fallen apart according to officials.
