Republican Governors Ron DeSantis of Florida, Greg Abbott of Texas, and Doug Ducey of Arizona are clearly getting under the skins of Democrat politicians and their mouthpieces. These hypocrites talk a good game about the “human rights” of illegal immigrants for whom they claim to have “compassion.” But they have been singing quite a different tune since Governor Abbott began busing just a few thousand illegal immigrants to New York City, Washington, D.C., and Chicago. This is a pittance compared to the more than two million illegal immigrants who have overrun southern border towns as a result of the Biden administration’s reckless catch-and-release-policy.
The Democrat mayors of these “sanctuary cities” were in an uproar when the illegal immigrants landed on their doorsteps. So were the residents of Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts, where former President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle own a huge mansion, after about fifty illegal immigrants, mostly from Venezuela, landed there last week, courtesy of Governor DeSantis. Within two days the National Guard was called to whisk these unwanted visitors off the liberal wealthy enclave to a military base on the mainland at Cape Cod.
One of the destinations for the Washington, D.C.-bound buses dispatched by Governor Abbott was Vice President Kamala Harris’s residence at the US Naval Observatory. The vice president said nothing when asked to comment on the arrival in front of her Washington, D.C. home of illegal immigrants from the southern border, which she insists is “secure.” As Governor Abbott explained in providing a dose of reality about the uncontrolled border crisis that is causing Texas border communities such distress, “We’re sending migrants to her backyard to call on the Biden Administration to do its job & secure the border.”
If Harris genuinely wanted to uncover the “root causes” of the mass influx of illegal immigrants since President Joe Biden took office as she was tasked to do, all she had to do was to speak to some of these illegal immigrants. The primary root cause, she would have learned, is the pull factor of the open border that President Biden has created and the promise of a better way of life supported by American taxpayer-funded benefits. One of these immigrants said as much last week when he thanked President Biden during an interview for keeping the border open.
But Vice President Harris has no interest in learning first-hand from the illegal immigrants what motivated them to make the long, dangerous journey to the United States. Instead, the vice president has accused the Republican governors, who are trying to protect the residents of their own states from the flood of unvetted illegal immigrants released into their communities, of a “dereliction of duty.”
From the president on down, Biden administration officials are hurling wild accusations against governors who are trying to contain the damage inflicted on their own residents by President Biden’s reckless policies. The administration’s cynical strategy is to deflect attention from a border crisis of its own making and cast Governors Abbott and DeSantis in particular as inhumane villains.
In remarks that President Biden delivered on September 15th at the 45th Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute Gala, the president falsely claimed that “Republicans are playing politics with human beings, using them as props” and that what they are doing is “un-American.” He then shamelessly propagated the big lie that “we have a process in place to manage migrants at the border. We’re working to make sure it’s safe and orderly and humane.”
The border is out of control. There is no orderly process to speak of as the Biden administration recklessly pursues its disastrous catch-and-release policy. And to assert that the Biden administration is working to make sure that the conditions for the illegal immigrants are safe and humane defies reality.
With its open border policies, the administration is encouraging desperate migrants to make the dangerous trek from their homelands to the United States. Some die along the way. Others are beaten and raped by cartel gang members. Virtually all illegal immigrants face exploitation by cartels who demand money and services as conditions for enabling the immigrants to cross the border into the United States. Over 1,200 migrants have died on American soil since President Biden took office.
Oblivious to the humanitarian crisis that the Biden administration’s immigration policies have brought about, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre condemned the Republican governors’ efforts to bring attention to the resulting strain on community resources. She called the governors’ transport of illegal immigrants up north “a cruel, premeditated political stunt” and said that the migrant children “deserve better than being left on the streets of D.C. or being left in Martha’s Vineyard.”
The migrant children deserve better than the Biden administration’s mishandling of unaccompanied children in federal custody, which included housing children in facilities that officials in the Office of Refugee Resettlement described as “run like disaster camps” lacking basic services. “As child welfare professionals with combined decades of experience working with (unaccompanied children), we, the (Office of Refugee Resettlement) field staff supervisors, have become growingly alarmed at the erosion of child-welfare centered approaches within the UC program,” an internal memo quoted by CNN stated.
Hillary Clinton added to her lengthy list of irresponsible statements when she accused Governor DeSantis of “literally human trafficking” by sending illegal immigrants on a flight to plush Martha’s Vineyard. “I happen to believe still the majority of Americans are good-hearted and generous, and when people end up on their doorstep in need, they’re going to respond,” including by feeding and housing them.
If so, where were Barack and Michelle Obama when the migrants needed them? Surely, the Obamas could have found space to house at least some of the migrants in their twenty-nine-acre home on Edgartown Great Pond with its seven bedrooms.
“These people will love the fact the immigrants have been dropped off on their island, because now they can feel like part of the solution, helping these few people,” said one longtime Martha’s Vineyard resident. “But they’d never let them into their houses unless they were working.” She called them “phonies.”
California’s Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom has staked out an extreme position to build up his leftwing progressive credentials. He asked the Biden Justice Department to examine whether transporting migrants across the country could be considered kidnapping and even a violation of federal racketeering law.
The accusations of human trafficking and kidnapping are downright ridiculous, especially since the Biden administration itself was behind more than seventy flights transporting illegal immigrants from the southern border to Jacksonville Florida alone in the dead of night. The Biden administration has also flown planeloads of underage migrants into suburban New York.
Apparently, leftists have no problem when the Biden administration secretly dumps illegal immigrants in the dark on unprepared communities without notice. But when red state governors decide to transport a relatively small number of illegal immigrants to self-proclaimed sanctuaries in the light of day, pandemonium erupts on the Left, which their friends in the media amplify. Total hypocrisy.
It’s called “repressive tolerance.” Marxist Herbert Marcuse wrote an essay of that name in 1965 advocating no tolerance of anything from the right and complete tolerance for anything from the Left. We are living in Marcuse’s world in which the movement of 50 illegals to Martha’s Vineyard by Republican governors is a crime against humanity while the movement of tens of thousands illegals to communities around the country by the Leftist Biden is ignored or even lauded.

Altruism and sacrifice have their own inner logic. The logic of master and servant. Barry Soetoro and the Elite of Martha’s Vineyard intend to be the Masters of Altruism and the rest of us the Servants of Altruism.
“It stands to reason that where there’s sacrifice, there’s someone collecting sacrificial offerings. Where there’s service, there’s someone being served. The man who speaks to you of sacrifice, speaks of slaves and masters. And intends to be the master.” – Ayn Rand
This is worse than “hypocrisy,” which is simply, as the saying goes, the tribute that vice pays to virtue. It is the utter antithesis of rule of law, sovereignty and national identity, the bases for any functioning nation.
These migrants, under the guise of seeking “a better life,” are here to take extreme advantage of our system of public benefits at taxpayer expense. They are parasites, pure and simple. And they need to be sent home. Not to Martha’s Vineyard, Sausalito or some other liberal watering hole. But back to their native countries.

It’s obvious that the MAGA crowd sent these poor refugees there, they knew what they were doing and Trump encouraged them, he will go to prison for this and so will ALL his supporters.
triggered pajama boi?? maybe mama will let some illegals share the basement with you.
Andrew Blackadder says
Tea bag boy, in your weird ass logic you want Trump to go to prison for agreeing with De Santis for sending 50, FIFTY, ILLEGALS to Martha’s Vineyard then I guess you want Old Joe to go to prison also for sending hundreds if not thousands of ILLEGALS to various places around the country.
DeSantis flew them during the day so that everybody could see it, Old Joe sent them during the night so that nobody would see it.
You are perhaps one of the morons that blamed Trump for kids in cages when everybody knew those ”çages” were built by Obama, your favorite bum boy.
Have you stopped taking your medication?.
FYI, Biden is the ”President” today, Trump isnt… Just trying to keep you up to date..
Next time the governor should send not 50 but 550. Or more.
Ted Weiland says
Sending migrants to Democrat cities (regardless how good it feels to do so) only sends such migrants deeper into America and thereby that much more difficult to get rid of.
Instead, they need to be sent back to their countries of origin, if possible, at their own expense or their nations.
Better yet, we need to eliminate all of America’s current unlawful (that is, biblically unlawful, both illegal and legal) border policies, replacing them the Bible’s border laws, beginning with the First Commandment and its statutes and civil judgment.
Today’s open-border agenda isn’t anywhere near America’s biggest border threat:
“For I, saith Yahweh, will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and will be the glory in the midst of her.” (Zechariah 2:5)
Without Yahweh, God of the Bible, as America’s principle wall of protection, the border will never be completely secure.
Compounding America’s border problems is that America has become so ungodly that, not only is God not her wall of protection, but He’s become her greatest enemy. America officially rejected Yahweh as her Sovereign and thus His immutable moral law as supreme in 1789 when she replaced Him with We the People as her Sovereign and His moral law (including the First Commandment as America’s principle border and immigration law) for the biblically seditious Constitution as supreme, per Article 6.
It was then that America began her suicidal trek to the precipice of moral depravity and destruction she presently find herself teetering on, being pushed over the edge by alleged Christians and patriots who are bent on promoting the genesis of her national woes as the solution to the problems created thereby.
“[B]ecause they have … trespassed against my law … they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind….” (Hosea 8:1, 7)
Today’s America is reaping the inevitable ever-intensifying whirlwind (including her border and immigration woes) resulting from the wind sown by the constitutional framers and fanned by today’s hoodwinked Christians and patriots who have been bamboozled into believing today’s whirlwind can be dissipated by appealing to the wind responsible for spawning the whirlwind.
