In April, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott touted his plan to bus illegal immigrants [illegal aliens] released by the Biden administration up to D, saying of White House officials, “If they’re not going to come to the border, I’m going to take the border to them.”

Arizona followed suit...

DC Mayor Muriel Bowser pleaded this week for the National Guard to help her city address the “humanitarian crisis” caused by the arrival of so many illegal border-crossers. In her letter to the Department of Defense, she said the arrival of 4,000 people over the past three months from the Southwest border had “overwhelmed” her capacity to respond.

Wow, 4,000 illegals, you say? Over three months?

It turns out that in June the Border Patrol in Texas apprehended more than 4,000 border-jumpers each day....

Really, what are Washington and New York complaining about? What’s more, both cities advertise themselves as sanctuaries for illegal immigrants, and obstruct enforcement of federal law. But even just a taste of what border communities have been dealing with during the Biden Border Crisis has them squealing.


Illegal immigration starting to hit home for US cities, by Todd Bensman, New York Post, 20 June 2022:

Big-city Democratic mayors such as New York’s Eric Adams and DC’s Muriel Bowser have realized, suddenly, that illegal immigrants are straining their social safety nets.

They’re accusing Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, but there’s only one person to blame: President Biden.

It was only ever the Biden government that did this, starting on inauguration day 2021, with radical policies gutting detention and deportation. They unleashed a mass migration crisis far beyond anything in the American experience, one that has utterly smashed every single illegal immigration record on the books.

As things stand, well over 2 million border crossers [illegal aliens] have fanned out across America. Millions more will be granted admittance in the next two years if the administration stays this course. By the end of Biden’s term, at this rate, the number of people let in at the border will probably exceed 6 million....
