The media treats opposition to illegal migration as simple racism. One of the basic experiential points that are ignored is the sheer havoc inflicted on local communities. Now the Imperial City is getting a taste of it thanks to Texas and then Arizona busing Biden’s illegal migrants over to Washington D.C.
As Arizona’s Governor Ducey tweeted to D.C.’s Mayor Bowser, “Welcome to our world.”
Members of the DC Council are calling on Mayor Muriel Bowser to act as Arizona and Texas officials continue to bus hundreds of migrants to Union Station.
Councilmembers Brianne Nadeau, Robert White, Elissa Silverman, Charles Allen, Janeese Lewis George, Mary Cheh, Brooke Pinto, Christina Henderson, Vincent Gray, and Chairman Phil Mendelson sent Mayor Bowser a letter Thursday about the situation at Union Station.
The letter calls on District government to provide contingency funding toward the purchase of travel tickets, food, petty cash, cell phones, and emergent medical needs of arrivals until it receives money from federal or philanthropic entities to address the issue.
The ten DC Councilmembers also want the arrivals from Texas to be provided access to COVID testing, isolation hotels, and a space of respite somewhere near Union Station that will provide food and hygiene necessities, among other things.
“We condemn these actions by Governors Abbott and Ducey, who have demonstrated no regard for people who are exercising their human right to seek asylum,” the letter reads. “The District, on the other hand, has a history of serving all residents who settle here, regardless of immigration status.”
Mayor Bowser’s office has not responded to multiple requests from WUSA9 about efforts to assist asylum seekers.
The exact number of people who have been bused to D.C. from Texas is unclear. According to the DC Council, the District has received more than 100 buses carrying around 3,400 people.
At the time, roughly 3,000 people had been sent to the District at a cost of $1,795 to the Texas government.
The Texas government is now crowdfunding online to continue contracting charter buses.
Pennies on the dollar, considering the cost that illegal migrants inflict on local communities.
Mayor Bowser finally responded in the expected way.
‘Well, this is a very significant issue,’ Bowser told CBS News Sunday morning program Face the Nation. ‘We have for sure called on the federal government to work across state lines to prevent people from really being tricked into getting on buses.’
The definition of NIMBY.
Mayor Bowser is demanding that the Biden administration keep illegal aliens out of D.C. Maybe the new National Guard powers that Pelosi wants to give her can be used for that.
