Reality just slapped Washington D.C. leftists in the face—with the help of Texas Governor Greg Abbott.
Now the mayor is hitting the panic button after the Lone Star State gave leftists a taste of their own medicine.
But Abbott’s Press Secretary went off after D.C.’s Mayor hit the panic button over the Lone Star State giving leftists a taste of their own medicine.
D.C. mayor is trying to shake down taxpayers over illegals
Washington, D.C. mayor Muriel Bowser just declared a “public emergency” over the illegal immigrants being bussed from red border states to the nation’s capital city.
Thanks to Joe Biden’s illegal open border policy, it’s projected two million illegals will enter the country this year – that’s more than 7,000 a-day that federal officials know about.
From the moment he stepped foot in office, Biden started unwinding every effective border security policy Donald Trump put into place.
The result has been overwhelming border communities.
The state of Texas has been taking the brunt of it due to having the longest stretch of border of any state.
The situation is so bad that Biden’s administration has turned Border Patrol officers into shuttle drivers hauling illegals from wherever they cross into the United States to nearby towns.
Recently a drone even caught Border Patrol officers unlocking a gate to let a group of illegals in through part of the partially constructed border wall.
Texas National Guard members then shut the gate again.
Finally, fed up with being forced to deal with a crisis fueled by illogical leftist policies, Texas Governor Greg Abbott started busing illegals to big blue cities including Washington, D.C.
Arizona’s governor also decided to take the same approach.
Now Washington, D.C.’s mayor is basically having a meltdown over the 9,400 illegals she claims have been dropped off in her city.
“Our response involves how can we live up to our values and make sure we have a humane, efficient process to deal with a crisis not of our making,” the Democrat said during a press conference.
Instead of pushing for the Biden administration to actually enforce the law and deport them immediately, Bowser plans to create an “Office of Migrant Services” which will take $10 million to even get started.
Abbott Press Secretary goes off
Greg Abbott’s Press Secretary, Ranae Eze, was quick to point out Bowser’s hypocritical behavior.
“In a city with a population over 700,000, she’s claiming an emergency for just over 7,900 migrants being bused into her sanctuary city,” Eze wrote. “That’s barely 1 percent of the population of Washington, D.C.,” she wrote in an email to The Epoch Times. “The true emergency is on our nation’s southern border—not in our nation’s capital—where small Texas border towns are overrun and overwhelmed by hundreds of migrants every single day as the Biden Administration dumps them in their communities.”
“Instead of fearmongering and complaining about a few thousand migrants in her sanctuary city, Mayor Bowser should call on President Biden to do his job and secure the border—something the President continues failing to do,” Eze added. “Governor Abbott’s invitation is still open for Mayor Bowser to visit the border and see the actual crisis firsthand.”
Washington, D.C. is a so-called “sanctuary” city which means its policy is to actually thwart federal government efforts to deport illegals.
But Bowser is making it clear that Democrats are all talk and with no substance.
Their offers of “sanctuary” all depend on taxpayer dollars, much of which would come from shaking down hardworking successful Republicans for every tax dollar possible.
