I don’t think liberals fully comprehend just how much Republicans, especially those at the border, love it when they hyperventilate about Texas and Arizona sending just a tiny handful of the illegal immigrants Biden has inflicted on them up to DC and New York City. The more pained and outraged they sound, the more Govs. Abbott and Ducey must think, “It’s working! Keep ‘em coming!”
The latest overheated rhetorical blasts include a CNN/MSNBC blabber and a Washington Post scribbler accusing Texas Gov. Abbott of “brutality” and “human trafficking.” If they want to see brutality and human trafficking, they should come take a look at what’s happening on the border, courtesy of President Biden. Personally, I don’t consider it “human trafficking” just to put some humans on a bus in traffic. Although admittedly, sending them to New York City is pretty brutal.
And New York Mayor Eric Adams once again upped the rhetorical ante by calling it “horrific” that Abbott “forced” these families onto the bus (they weren’t forced, they can get on voluntarily.)
Here’s the really hilarious part, though. Adams went to greet one of the buses which left Texas with 40 illegal immigrants on it. But by the time it got to New York, there were only 14. Adams said they probably feared what might greet them in New York and got off before it arrived. A spokeswoman later “clarified” that he didn’t mean they were afraid of the city’s soaring crime rate.
Okay, I’ll say it: they were probably terrified of the city’s soaring crime rate. This is another way in which this plan is a stroke of genius. We should transport all illegal immigrants from our Southern border straight to New York City, Los Angeles, Seattle, Portland or some other crime-ridden blue city. They’ll take one look and beg to go back to Central America.
