The Border Goes North, and Blue City Mayors Melt Down:
The border has come to northern, blue cities—and Democrats aren’t handling it well.
July’s border numbers are in, and the Biden administration again has set an all-time record for unlawful crossings, surpassing 2021’s historic numbers.
Most legacy and corporate media dodged this historic crisis, which began almost immediately under President Joe Biden’s watch. It’s typically easy for the Acela corridor simply to ignore the plight of border states.
But red state governors, namely Greg Abbott of Texas and Doug Ducey of Arizona, have changed the dynamic by busing some of the countless border crossers directly to Washington, D.C., and New York City.
Now, the big, blue city mayors are having a fit and accusing Republicans of causing the mess.
“This is horrific, when you think about what the governor is doing,” New York City Mayor Eric Adams, a Democrat, said of Abbott while greeting bused-in migrants at the Port Authority bus terminal.
Texas and Arizona have sent about 4,000 asylum-seekers to New York since May, Politico reported.
D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser, a Democrat, actually requested mobilization of the National Guard to deal with the asylum-seekers being sent to her city.
Such a request likely would be called “racist” or “fascist” by left-wing media types if it came from a Republican mayor. Amusingly enough, the Biden administration rejected Bowser’s request.--->READ MORE HERE
Migrants Say They’re Glad to Be Bused by Texas, Migrant Advocates Say No One Is Being Forced:
On Friday’s broadcast of “AC360,” CNN aired a report on Texas busing migrants to New York City and Washington, DC by CNN National Correspondent Gary Tuchman where an advocate for migrants denied that people were being forced on the buses and migrants who got on the bus said they were grateful for the ride.
During the report, Tuchman said, “Some people say it’s cruel, but this story may not be what you expect.” He then played a clip from an interview with a migrant going on a bus to DC who said she was happy.
Tuchman then stated, “And listen to those who advocate for the migrants.” He then played a clip from a discussion with Mission: Border Hope Executive Director Valeria Wheeler where she said, “They want to go on these buses.”
In another clip, Tuchman asked, “And you’re saying no one is being forced to go on these buses?”
Wheeler responded, “No one has been forced.”
Tuchman then asked, “They’re going on because they want to?”
Wheeler answered, “Yes.” --->READ and WATCH MORE HERE
