If you thought it was brilliant – and it was – when the Governors of Texas and Arizona began sending northern liberal “sanctuary cities” like New York, Chicago and Washington, DC, a very small number of the illegal migrants that President Biden’s open border have unleashed on them, then get ready for the next level.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis just sent 50 illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, the picturesque enclave of wealthy, overprivileged liberals, including the $12 million waterfront estate of the Obamas (oddly enough, they seem unconcerned about those rising oceans from climate change – maybe Obama just waves his hand and makes them recede from his house.)
The standard response from liberal leaders has been to denounce these Governors as cruel, racist, un-Christian and lacking in compassion. A local lawmaker who represents the Vineyard called it “evil and inhumane” to send the migrants there (good thing he’s not in charge of promoting tourism!)
They fail to grasp that they expect border states to compassionately deal with a thousand times more illegal immigrants than they’ve been sent, and all because of policies they promote. They also never expected anyone to force them to live up to all their empty virtue signaling. I’m surprised they don’t recognize the tactic, since it’s #4 in their own leftist bible, Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals”: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”
A spokesperson for DeSantis responded, “States like Massachusetts, New York and California will better facilitate the care of these individuals who they have invited into our country by incentivizing illegal immigration through their designation as ‘sanctuary states’ and support for the Biden administration’s open border policies.” In short, don’t write checks that your sanctuary state can’t cash. Still, I have no doubt that these wealthy liberals will soon do the same compassionate thing they always do for illegal immigrants: put them to work off the books at their estates for lower wages than they’d have to pay American citizens.
But wait, it gets even better. Last weekend, Vice President (and “border czar”…remember?) Kamala Harris stunned even NBC sycophant Chuck Todd by declaring that “the border is secure.” Well, to prove otherwise, since she refuses to visit and see for herself, Texas sent a busload of illegal migrants from Del Rio and delivered them directly outside her house in DC. A Fox News reporter asked one of the migrants if the border is closed, as Harris said, or open. She said it’s open. I tend to give her more credibility on this issue than I do Kamala Harris. Or on any issue, come to think of it.
I like the Twitter post at that link: “If Kamala doesn’t go to the border, the border will go to Kamala.”
