Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis have made significant waves today after sending bus loads and planeloads of illegal migrants to Washington D.C. on the doorstep of Vice President Kamala Harris’s residence and Martha’s Vinyard. Mayors and elected officials, as well as main stream media, are actually talking about illegal immigration now. However, it seems that they are still missing the mark.
CNN’s Ken Burns calls Gov. DeSantis “authoritarian” for sending migrants to Martha’s Vineyard.
Vice President Kamla Harris completely ignores the reporter when questioned about the two busloads of illegal immigrants dropped off on her doorstep on Thursday morning.
New York City Mayor Eric Adams attempts to defend President Bidens failed border policies and denies that the current administration has created a crisis by stating that “Anyone who states that the Biden Administration does not have a handle on border crisis, they must have been sleeping under a rock.”
ABC News reports that the White House wants to be “talking about literally anything else.”
A discussion on CNN included comments that Abbott and DeSantis have turned Washington D.C. into an “unofficial border town.”
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot stated, ““It is a manufactured crisis by ambush. (…) Any dollar that goes to the state of Texas (…) every single one of those dollars needs to be recommitted to cities like Chicago, New York, and Washington, D.C.”
Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser asked about the illegal immigrants being dropped off on Harris’s doorstep.
And the illegal migrants themselves thanked President Biden for allowing them to come, and they stated that the border is completely open and that it is not closed at all.
