President Joe Biden’s inaction against illegal immigration has led to a surge of new people being bused into American cities. Now they’re dealing with the humanitarian crisis it’s created, even in the nation’s capital.
Footage captured Friday showed a busload of illegal immigrants being shuffled into St. Peter’s Catholic Church in Washington, D.C., Fox News Digital reported. The church, located just steps from the U.S. Capitol, is providing material support to the migrants as the city struggles to keep up.
“St. Peter’s will be providing space, materials goods, meals, and volunteers to help welcome immigrants who are arriving in D.C. by bus daily,” a sign-up page for the church said in a social media post last month. It listed several items the church would be collecting to help.
This recent footage comes amid an outcry from leftist governments in big cities that have been dealing with large numbers of illegal immigrants. Just last week, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser complained about the “humanitarian crisis” this situation was creating.
They’ve blamed Arizona and Texas for rerouting migrants to their cities, though Arizona has denied it. “We think they’re largely asylum seekers who are going to final destinations that are not Washington, D.C.,” Bowser had said on “Face the Nation” on July 17.
“I worked with the White House to make sure that FEMA provided a grant to a local organization that is providing services to folks. I fear that they’re being tricked into nationwide bus trips when their final destinations are places all over the United States of America,” Bowser said.
Previously, Bowser was one among the many Democratic leaders who have pushed for welcoming all illegal immigrants into the nation. She and New York City Mayor Eric Adams have now changed their tune as their respective cities struggle to keep up with providing services for so many new inhabitants.
Republicans have been warning about precisely the problems Bowser and other Democrats are now complaining about. These hypocrites see potential voters and seem to forget they’re also humans who have needs.
