Skip to comments.Dick Durbin: ‘Pathetic’ Abbott, DeSantis ‘Taking Advantage of These Helpless People’
Posted on 09/18/2022 7:20:32 AM PDT by ChicagoConservative27
Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that “it is pathetic” that Govs. Greg Abbott (R-TX) and Ron DeSantis (R-FL) were taking advantage of helpless people by sending migrants to northern cities.
Durbin said, “It is pathetic that the governors are taking advantage of these helpless people, making promises to them, and off they go to places far removed from where they’re supposed to be appearing under the requirements of our law in a matter of weeks and months. He is jeopardizing their stay here. Why is it when the Republicans want to enforce their immigration theories, it’s always the kids that end up being the victims? We saw it with kids in cages. We saw it with the forcible removal of children with their parents, some of who have never been reunited. Once against it’s the kids and families transported for political purposes.”

I listened to this disgusting dude for a couple of minutes. He falls in line with the rest of them.
Pot...kettle...black. You make it sound like you aren't using them to your own political advantage. Illegal immigration is fine, until it shows up on your door step, you hypocrite.
What a stroke of genius by DeSantis! We want more!
Oh no, their taking advantage of the people Durbin is exploiting.
If I were one of those illegals I’d felt like I hit the lottery getting an all expense paid trip, meals included , to one of the wealthiest places in the country. They could have been sent to Death Valley or some equivalent .jeez.
Best October surprise in September ever!
Pathetic how Democrats used Blacks as pawns with their decades of welfare.
It was your buddies Obama and his puppet Biden who encouraged these people to come in droves and overwhelm our borders. It was your pal Soros who financed the caravans crossing multiple borders to our south before illegally crossing our border. It was you people who made promises to those illegals.
it was not DeSantis and Abbott who did that.
So quit your whining and fix the problem *you people* created.
Your hypocrisy has been exposed in a big way, Senator Not-in-My-Back-Yard.
Years ago it was Turban Durbin. Dresden makes a good and timely update.
How is sending these people to a place that very much has the financial abilities to help these people a bad thing?
Beats sending them to some poor little middle class town in Kansas who really does not have the finances to absorb an influx of poor people.
Perhaps all these towns now should demand the National Guard to come in and relocate the people Biden has dumped on them via buses and planes to military bases.
This is what people should do and make it clear that this was done for the entitled elites in Martha’s Vineyard.
A little help needed.
democrats love weaponized victimhood.
Rush always called this dufus Dick Turban. He is way too old. His staff does all the work. They wheel this carny clown out for appearances every month or so.
Unload a couple of full buses to Durban’s front door. I’m sure he’ll welcome the diversity into his neighborhood.
What is ‘pathetic’ is that one of the richest enclaves of rich elite, leftist liberalism in America could not even withstand ONE DAY of an unexpected arrival of those invaders (for whom they avidly wish upon other unsuspecting cities and towns far away from them) before having them shipped out to a mainland military base, out-of-sight, out-of-mind.
[An aside, I remember once when Turbin compared the US Military to Nazi Storm Troopers and Pol Pot..... I guess they’re not so bad now that they’re the go-to patsies to rid you leftists of your at-home problems.]
Finally, democrats are forced to acknowledge that these people exist.
If this is taking advantage, then Biden abused 1000s times
Didn’t hear you then Dick!
Turdbin will retire in four years (if he doesn’t croak first) and his protege and former babysitter Cheri Bustos will take his place.
