Metro Dems Beg Biden for Mass Migrant Help

“Sanctuary city” Democrat leaders are now reaping the fruits of Biden’s open-border policy.

In a delicious example of leftist elites suddenly being bitten by their own policies, Democrat leaders from self-proclaimed “sanctuary cities” are now calling on Joe Biden to help mitigate the massive numbers of illegal aliens that have poured into their cities.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams recently called on the Biden administration to assist with the flow of illegals, stating: “We do need help from the federal government, through FEMA, to assist us. This city was already dealing with a shelter population, and we’re going to need help to deal with this unprecedented surge.”

Adams pointed to some 2,800 migrants who arrived in the Big Apple and were taking up space and overcrowding in the city’s homeless shelters.

Boo hoo.

Washington, DC, Mayor Muriel Bowser also lamented the influx of brown-skinned tourists. However, rather than blame Biden for creating the problem thanks to his open-border policies, Bowser laid the blame on southern border states for allegedly having “tricked” these illegals into taking buses up to DC.

Boo hoo hoo.

Written off by Democrat politicians and Leftmedia talkingheads as little more than a publicity stunt, Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s migrant busing drive is now three months old and has deposited thousands of illegal aliens in the nation’s capital. It seems to be working, too, by forcing these Democrat-run sanctuary cites to live with the problems their ill-reasoned policies have created.

Ironically, it’s not primarily Abbott’s busing program that’s to blame but the Biden administration itself. The Department of Homeland Security has flown, often in the dead of night, tens of thousands of migrants all across the country.

While Adams and Bowser may complain, they’ll likely be met with the same deaf ears that others — including Texas Democrat Congressman Henry Cuellar — have received from Team Biden. Cuellar has repeatedly called on the administration to secure the border and tackle the problem, but to no avail. Or as Eagle Pass, Texas, Mayor Rolando Salinas Jr. observed, “As a lifelong Democrat, I have to say it’s so disappointing to not get support from this administration.”

It now appears that these Democrat-run sanctuary cities are beginning to reap what they’ve sown. And that’s a good thing. Unfortunately, though, all Americans will eventually have to pay for this administration’s blatantly immoral border policies.
