Washington mayor torched as hypocrite for complaining about border migrants bused to DC
District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser is getting criticized for complaining about migrants being bused to Washington who are utilizing homeless shelters.

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T



District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser is being criticized as a "Not-in-my-backyard" hypocrite for complaining about the influx of asylum seekers utilizing homeless shelters and other city services, months after Texas began busing migrants to the place they say caused the overall crisis.

Bowser called the migrant issue "significant" and said she is urging a coordinated federal response, further claiming migrants are being "tricked" into boarding buses to Washington.

Earlier this year, video circulated of buses arriving from Texas and debarking passengers off Massachusetts Avenue near Capitol Hill.

Fox News host Pete Hegseth said it is ironic for Bowser to call for a coordinated response from the Biden administration, when that is what Republicans have been calling for since he took office and chipped away at Donald Trump's border security policies:

"I've been wanting Greg Abbott to declare an invasion which gives constitutionally the state of Texas additional powers. And I downplayed what he was doing on busing illegals to D.C.; I think I was wrong on that," he said.

"They're not being tricked. They're being asked. They're volunteering to go to Washington, D.C. as a result. Now they're flooded in swamp. And she's admitting what we always knew about big city leftist elitists," Hegseth added, saying the admission is that the "elite" class wants the rest of America to suffer under their policy decisions, "as long as they're in someone elses backyard, not ours."

Hegseth wondered aloud whether Bowser now understands the real plight of officials in New Mexico, Texas and Arizona where migrants have been illegally entering from Mexico en masse for years.

"It's one of the best examples we've seen yet of the complete double standard they live in. She just she said it on TV for us," he said.

Former Trump Treasury Assistant Secretary Monica Crowley echoed Hegseth, adding Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is not alone in trying to redirect illegal migrants to places where President Biden and the elite class will feel the repercussions of their policy actions.

She pointed to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who has openly considered busing illegal immigrants to Delaware after "ghost flights" were landing in Jacksonville and dispersing migrants statewide.

Officials in other states are floating similar measures including Pennsylvania's Republican gubernatorial nominee, State Sen. Doug Mastriano, who touted a proposal that would levy international monetary remittances made by illegal immigrants and divert the revenue to lower property taxes.

"It's a great way to deter illegal immigration and we can put that new revenue towards tax breaks for legal citizens," Mastriano, R-Franklin, told Fox News.

Fellow Pennsylvania State Sen. Mario Scavello drafted a plan he said was inspired by DeSantis to relocate migrants flown into the president's hometown of Scranton to the president's current hometown of Wilmington and vicinity.

If the ghost flights are "good enough for Pennsylvania, then why not redirect the relocation to Delaware?" Scavello, R-Monroe, said in January.

Biden's open border policy has allowed millions of so-called "processed"  illegal aliens, hundreds of thousands of got-aways, and untold thousands of pounds of Fentanyl and other illegal drugs to pour into every state but Bowser doesn't want to feed, house, educate a few thousand illegals who volunteered to go to her crime-ridden city?

Mayorkas was ready for it. 

President Joe Biden’s administration says we could be facing up to half-a-million illegal immigrants per month being apprehended at the southern border when Title 42 protections are lifted later this month.

But don’t worry, says Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas — they’ve been prepping for this since last fall and, heck, it might not be that high.

In an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday, the DHS secretary insisted that the system could handle the additional numbers because “we prepare and we plan,” meaning they were “ready for anything.”

I wonder what a reeeeeaaaaal Open Door Policy reeeeeaaaaaaly looks like ?

“In Central America, the root causes of migration run deep — and migration from the region has a direct impact on the United States,” Harris wrote in a cover letter discussing the plan. “For that reason, our nation must consistently engage with the region to address the hardships that cause people to leave Central America and come to our border.”

Harris still can't "Find Waldo" .

She's too busy trying to find "Big Words" to use to sound smart. She still can't find a way to put those "Big Words" together in a comprehensible way.

Just another one of those "Can't Find Waldo" problems she has.

The "LEGAL" way back in the day !

Ellis Island, a small island in New York Harbor, served as the site of America's first federal immigration station. From 1892 to 1954, over 12 million immigrants entered the United States through the island. Today the approximately 100 million living descendants of these Ellis Island immigrants account for more than 40% of the country's population.

From 1892 to 1924, about 12 million people from other countries arrived at Ellis Island in New York. Those in steerage were subject to health screenings by physicians from the U.S. Public Health Service. The doctors checked for trachoma, an eye disease that often led to blindness, and watched for other conditions. The process could take anywhere from three to seven hours. Female physicians conducted some of the immigrant screenings on women who were modest and not comfortable undressing before a man.

About 1 in 5 arrivals required more complete assessments, and those deemed a risk were quarantined at the Ellis Island Hospital

Now....It's Not "Katie bar the Door" - It's "Katie, back off and let them all in .... diseased and all " !

True, and they came here LEGALLY and were fully vetted at ports of entry (and checked for diseases) before being allowed entry. If they didn't pass inspections, they were sent back to their nation of origin.

Why are they a problem now?

Those who are currently flooding our open southern border from 150 countries aren't "immigrants". They're illegal aliens, many of whom carry diseases, are terrorists, and are drug/human smugglers. 

JBB - You're a smart guy, and I know that you know the difference between legal and illegal so stop the worn-out "Give me your tired, your poor" shtick.

I was one of the last in my neighborhood to still cut my own grass, trim the bushes and rake leaves.  Then I got sick and was grateful to be able to hire people to do it for me.  My father lives in the PA rust belt and it was very hard for me to find some one willing to cut his very small yard and even harder to find someone that actually showed up after agree to.  The would be very little Chesapeake picked crab meat or it would be outrageously expensive with seasonal immigrants.

Are you referring to legal or illegal immigrants?  Wouldn't their education level be a factor on what jobs they were doing?

There is a lot of information about legal/illegal immigration at the link below.  The article is from 2020.  There is probably better and newer data, but it did not show up in my initial search.

Key findings about U.S. immigrants | Pew Research Center

Educational attainment varies among the nation’s immigrant groups, particularly across immigrants from different regions of the world. Immigrants from Mexico and Central America are less likely to be high school graduates than the U.S. born (54% and 47%, respectively, do not have a high school diploma, vs. 8% of U.S. born). On the other hand, immigrants from every region   except   Mexico, the Caribbean and Central America were as likely as or more likely than U.S.-born residents to have a bachelor’s or advanced degree.

Among all immigrants, those from South Asia (71%) were the most likely to have a bachelor’s degree or more. Immigrants from Mexico (7%) and Central America (11%) were the least likely to have a bachelor’s or higher.

Illegal immigration has always been a problem.  It's only now that liberals who advocate open borders are having to deal with the problem.  NIBMY liberals can't hide in their own backyards.

Migrants jump the border when they choose; there's no way to plan anything.  And illegal immigrants compete for resources.  It's necessary to house, feed, clothe, educate, and provide medical care for illegal immigrants.  So, resources have to be diverted from other programs.  Poor neighborhoods will suffer most because the resources are diverted to the needs of illegal immigrants.  Should the city use funds to maintain parks in poor neighborhoods or provide necessities for illegal immigrants?  Which is more important?

How does a school justify extracurricular activities when there is a need for more teachers, classrooms, and materials to educate illegal immigrants?  And these illegal immigrants aren't going to be located in affluent neighborhoods and attending affluent schools.  That would require even more city and school resources that would be diverted away from other programs.  And illegal immigrants won't improve school test scores so the schools are under threat of losing more resources.

Add Jose Alba -- the NYC bodega worker Alvin Bragg immediately threw into Rikers Prison on "murder charges" with $500K bail for the crime of defending himself when 2 people physically assaulted HIM first. Glad that Bragg finally grew big enough stones to drop those ridiculous charges ... but it took him 3 weeks to do it.
