Skip to comments.Being a sanctuary city is all fun and games until the migrants actually show up

Good grief! Get a load of today's immigration story in the New York Times. It is some of the best unintentional comedy of this election cycle.
First, some context: The Biden administration, with its incoherent immigration policy, has been causing a humanitarian disaster that is completely overwhelming border communities in Texas and Arizona. At resident Joe Biden's direction, the Border Patrol is now forced to process and release thousands of illegal border crossers into small towns and cities in South Texas, such as Del Rio and Laredo. These municipalities are completely unequipped to deal with this Biden-generated crisis.
At first, back in April, they were ridiculed for what was wrongly interpreted as a mere political stunt when they started offering migrants free bus rides to the major urban hubs of the United States.
But the migrants turned out to be eager to take advantage. And why not? The mayors of these two cities had ostentatiously declared them "sanctuary cities." They had boasted that diversity made them stronger and that migrants were welcome.
But - uh, oh, here come the migrants! And suddenly, these same mayors are now calling for their brown pants, calling out the National Guard, calling for federal funds.
New Yorkers and Washingtonians were happy to support Biden in causing this crisis while it was happening in distant cities far to the southwest. But send a few dozen busloads of migrants, and they're suddenly really, really upset about it. Call it "East Coast privilege."
D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser wants to mobilize the National Guard, for which immigrant advocates are hilariously roasting her.

My new tagline.
Some of these black nitwits in public office are apparently the last people in the U.S. to figure out that the goal all along for these dysfunctional urban sh!t-holes has been to replace the black Americans currently living there with Latin American immigrants.
FTA——White House press secretary Nincommpoop Karine Jean-Pierre claims that “there is a process in place for managing migrants at the border” .........
She is, of course, wrong, as she so often is. There is no process for dealing with the situation at the border — that is precisely why these governors have been offering bus rides to migrants at taxpayer expense.
The resources for handling the problem in places like Del Rio are nonexistent.
The District of Columbia, on the other hand, is ideally situated to handle such an influx. And its leaders openly, loudly welcomed the influx ... right up until they realized someone might take them up on their empty attempts to appear altruistic.
It’s all fun and games to be a sanctuary city when all you have to do is say things to make yourself look good. When the actual migrants come seeking sanctuary ... well, that’s when things get tricky.
A taste of their own medicine!
Sweet tears of the ignorant liberal elite!
.......aaaand will the Guard serve only the migrants, or will its operations also include the existing homeless “community?”
(Sounds like potential discrimination to me...)
Add The Hamptons on there too. Kennebunkport Maine would be a good destination too.
bus them all to the Hamptons!
NYC has been sending their homeless Upstate for a while now.
Bet that includes illegals, too.
All that does is pad our census figs with people dependant on Deep State.
How in Hades is sending illegals back to anywhere other than their country of origin a good idea?!
Well, DeSantis, Abbott?
Reminds me of the way we have proxy wars in other countries. We send equipment and money for the fight on their turf, so that we don’t have to fight here. Lord knows we can’t handle another war on our own turf.
She is wrong implies that she’s simply mistaken. NOT TRUE. She’s lying and is fully aware she’s lying. There are no good intentions in the Biden administration. They’re not “misguided.” They’re doing this deliberately to forever break the power of the middle class of Americans by diluting their voices/votes and institute a totalitarian government. This is why gun control/confiscation is one of the holy grails of the left - they know what they’re doing could spark an armed revolution eventually and they want us disarmed and helpless.
Ask Kate Steinle how sanctuary cities/pro illegal immigration worked out.
FYI, Fox is reporting a bus load just hit NYC minutes ago.
democrat party voters need to suffer personal consequences for their choices.
What I find funny about all of this is it’s liberal madness affecting liberals. Every one of their victim groups were created by liberals and now every group is fighting every other group and the libs are clueless.
drop a busload off in front of AOC’s house!
Ship them to Martha’s Vinyard and the campuses of Harvard, Stanford, Yale, etc etc. Let them house the illegals and feed them and provide medical care etc etc. They wouldn’t want to be “selfish” now would they?
“D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser wants to mobilize the National Guard”
YA’LL AIN’T TIRED YET??!!
I have seen latino families but not overwhelming numbers.
What am I missing?
