Democrats are all for open borders. However, they likely didn’t anticipate the direct impact these policies will now have on them.
Footage taken Friday morning showed a busload of migrants arriving at Port Authority in New York City from Texas, Breitbart reported in an exclusive. They were sent by Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, who is alleviating the problem in his state by sending them to so-called “sanctuary cities” run by Democrats.
The passengers disembarked and were greeted by volunteers handing out food. Though the bags distributed to them were from the “Save the Children” organization, most of the 60-plus migrants were adult men, with just a handful of women and children present.
One of the men who spoke to Breitbart, identified only as Alfonzo, said he’d come from Venezuala via Mexico and crossed into Texas. He was confident it was easier to get in with President Joe Biden running things instead of his predecessor.
While Biden lets droves of new illegal immigrants across the border, Abbott has begun a strategy to take the heat off of his state. “Because of President Biden’s continued refusal to acknowledge the crisis caused by his open border policies, the State of Texas has had to take unprecedented action to keep our communities safe,” Abbott said in a statement.
“In addition to Washington, D.C., New York City is the ideal destination for these migrants, who can receive the abundance of city services and housing that Mayor Eric Adams has boasted about within the sanctuary city,” Abbott added. “I hope he follows through on his promise of welcoming all migrants with open arms so that our overrun and overwhelmed border towns can find relief.”
New York had pledged to be a sanctuary city under Democratic Mayor Eric Adams. However, the recent influx is stressing New York’s already overtaxed social services and leading to difficulties.
When Democrats push for illegal immigration, they should be willing to take care of the people they’re importing. Unfortunately, the migrants they’ve used as political pawns against Republicans will suffer because of it.
