Buses of Illegal Immigrants Arrive at Kamala Harris’ House, Shrieking Ensues
As RedState reported on Wednesday evening, Gov. Ron DeSantis sent two planes of illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard, a favorite landing place for rich, liberal elites, including Barack Obama.
Greg Abbott wasn’t to be outdone, though. News broke on Thursday morning that two busloads of illegal immigrants were dropped off at Kamala Harris’ doorstep. That came just days after the vice president had proclaimed the border “secure.”
Fox News actually took the time to do some actual journalism, something the rest of the mainstream media couldn’t be bothered to do as they clutched their pearls. Here’s one of the illegal immigrants saying that the border is “open” because they entered “free, no problem.”
Most of the illegal immigrants in this case were apparently from Venezuela. They were sent voluntarily north because border towns in Texas are completely overwhelmed and simply do not have the resources to care for these people. Besides, who better to take them in than the very Democrats who have spent the last decade promoting sanctuary city policies and proclaiming the wonders of diversity?
Abbot is doing them a favor by making the transition of these illegal immigrants into welcoming liberal communities smoother. Or at least, that’s what you’d think the response would be given past rhetoric. But nope, leftwingers are freaking out, calling the move inhumane and exploitative.
This is what is called NIMBYism. That stands for “not in my backyard,” and it is a mindset that sees progressive radicals demand policies that they themselves refuse to accept the consequences of. When it’s some small town in the Rio Grande Valley, Democrats are all for open borders. When the illegal immigrants start showing up in their cities, suddenly they get really concerned about “optics” and “exploitation,” though.
It’s laughably hypocritical. It also ignores that those blue cities and the residents within have far more resources to care for these illegal immigrants than the already overwhelmed border towns. How is it not a moral imperative to shift the load a bit to other Americans, especially those that have perpetuated the border crisis?
