News Beyond The Queen
Exasperated is the best word I can use to describe my reaction to the news all weekend concerning immigrants and busing to sanctuary cities.
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre compared the actions of the two governors who sent migrants to sanctuary cities to that of smugglers. What? The Governors are smugglers? Is this administration that clueless to what is going on at the border and the smuggling of drugs and sex workers into the country?
The same media that made every Trump press conference a battle royal has no issue with this?
She then accused the governors of luring more than 100 asylum-seekers, including children, under false promises that they would receive shelter and benefits. Wait!
They are being moved from non sanctuary cities on the border they crossed illegally to sanctuary cities.
Then we heard from Hillary Clinton. She criticized the transport of migrants from Texas to Martha’s Vineyard, Mass., saying: “Some politicians would rather not only have an issue, but exacerbate it to the extent of literally human trafficking.” What?
You don’t have an issue with the trafficking illegally across the border, only sending them further into the country?
“Nobody wants open borders … but nobody wants inhumane, terrible treatment of human beings either.” What?
If this administration doesn’t want open borders, why did they break a policy that was working to create this mess? Why haven’t they done anything to fix it? Why hasn’t the President or VP visited the border to see the issue?
Then she said: “What we should have been doing is to come together to reform, change and better fund the system by which we deal with these issues. But some people, like the governor of Texas, would rather have an issue than be part of a solution.” WHAT?
The Governors of Texas, Arizona and Florida don’t want a solution? Are you serious? Is the media going to let her and others get away with these comments?
And maybe above all is the absolute hypocrisy of the border czar VP herself.
She accused the Texas and Florida Governors of “dereliction of duty” over their recent transports of migrants to Democratic-led cities. Look at this quote from the person in charge:
“I think it is the height of irresponsibility … frankly, a dereliction of duty, when you are an elected leader, to play those kinds of games with human life and human beings.” WHAT?
It exists because you changed a working policy and were going to find the root cause solution. You have done nothing. NOTHING. The leaders of the countries in South America have said out loud they have not heard from you; which makes this statement from you even more exasperating:
“If you think there is a problem, be part of the solution.”
Madam VP, here’s a chart of illegal crossings with you in charge for eighteen months:
This from Governor DeSantis on the issue of moving illegal immigrants:
“We are not a sanctuary state, and it’s better to be able to go to a sanctuary jurisdiction, and yes, we will help facilitate that transport for you to be able to go to greener pastures. Every community in America should be sharing in the burdens. It shouldn’t all fall on a handful of red states.”
Why is this not a national issue and only a border state one? Failed polices should be a shared one.
In America We Fix Issues Via The Ballot Box
If you believe the way to fix this is through the ballot box, well, know this then. Balloting for the mid terms is about to get underway. Yes, in September, before debates and issue discussions. Does that make for informed voters?
Early voting kicks off on Sept. 23 for voters in Minnesota, South Dakota, and Wyoming.
On Sept. 24, it begins in Vermont and Virginia.
On Sept. 29, voters in Illinois, Michigan, and North Dakota can head to the polls. Pennsylvania voters might also have the ability to vote early this month depending on their county. The exact start date varies based on when counties finalize their November ballots.
On that election, NBC released a poll yesterday that said the race for Congress was dead even.
