DC Dem Can't Handle The Heat: They've 'Turned Us Into A Border Town'- Irony
OH, The IRONY! A Washington D.C councilwoman went from calling her city a 'sanctuary' for illegals to complaining that the border states have 'turned' them 'into a border town'. The biggest problem I have with councilwoman Brianne Nadeau's complaint is that she is blaming Governor Doug Ducey (R-AZ) and GovernorAbbottbott's (R-TX) focity'scities illegal problem rather than taking it up with 'the big guy'.
“The governors of Texas and Arizona have created this crisis, and the federal government has not stepped up to assist the District of Columbia. So we along with our regional partners will do what we’ve always done. We’ll rise to the occasion,” Nadeau said.
Governor Doug Ducey (R-AZ) joined Governor Greg Abbott's (R-TX) efforts in defending the southern border by bussing illegals to Washington DC. Abbott has been an especially loud advocate for government intervention at the border as it was supposed to be the responsibility of the federal government to protect homeland security—However, the Biden admin abandoned them. So the two governors have worked this out to the best of their ability.
“In many ways, the governors of Texas and Arizona have turned us into a border town. We don’t know how long this will take to resolve. We don’t know how long they will continue bussing,” Nadeau said. “And so the right thing to do here is to be prepared to ensure we can greet every bus, we can get people off on the right foot, we can get them to where they want to go, and that will ultimately help them in their immigration process.”
Texas and Arizona have sent dozens of busses containing thousands of migrants to Washington, D.C, New York City, and Chicago. Local leaders in the Democrat-run cities have complained about the strain that the migrants are placing on local social programs. The Republican governors have said that that strain is a fraction of that placed on actual border cities in their states.
The Republican governors have picked Washington, D.C., New York City, and Chicago because they are known as “sanctuary cities” that openly refuse to work with federal immigration authorities to deport many illegal migrants.
“President Biden’s inaction at our southern border continues putting the lives of Texans—and Americans—at risk and is overwhelming our communities,” Abbott said in a statement last week announcing the expansion of the bussing program to Chicago. “Mayor Lightfoot loves to tout the responsibility of her city to welcome all regardless of legal status, and I look forward to seeing this responsibility in action as these migrants receive resources from a sanctuary city with the capacity to serve them.”

I just want to be clear here, because Democrats seem to have this confused; it is NOT up to individual states to maintain the border between foreign countries. That job should rest solely on the Federal government but under Biden's open borders the southern states are doing their best to maintain some shred of security.
It's not like they did ask for help from the White House. In a short 2 years, more than 2 million people have flooded across the border and into states like Arizona and Texas—What the hell were they supposed to do? Without support from the White House there is no way they can financially support the giant influx of undocumented people—Nor should they.
