Remember when preening Press Secretary Jen Psaki sneered in response to Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s migrant busing strategy, dismissing it as a “publicity stunt?”
Well, unfortunately for Ms. Psaki, it turns out that Abbott has had the last laugh after all, considering the success he’s had since implementing the much-needed program.
In fact, latest figures reveal that Abbott’s migrant busing strategy has relocated upwards of 52,000 migrants to various Democrat enclaves, the vast majority of which self-identify as “sanctuary cities.”
To date, New York has received 18,500 migrants from Texas, while Chicago has received 13,500 and Washington, D.C. has received 12,500.
Predictably, the mayors of all the cities are freaking out while doubling down on their cities’ “sanctuary status.”
Typical leftist “logic.”
And, hilariously, the White House is apparently not terribly responsive even to Dem mayors, as its chief leader is too busy covering his tracks abroad.
Much to Abbott’s glee.
“[Texas] is going to continue to use every tool that we can to secure the border the best that we can,” Abbott proclaimed.
Abbott also noted that any Democrat anger towards him is rather misplaced, considering that Abbott is merely trying to resolve a problem that he never created in the first place.
“The lead importer of migrants to New York is not Texas, it’s Joe Biden,” Abbott asserted.
And Biden doesn’t seem too inclined to do much about the migrant crisis he created. Apparently, his Chinese buddies paid him too well.
Humorously, New York City Mayor Eric Adams is doing a vanity tour of Latin America now, in the style of Kamala Harris, insisting to migrants that New York City is “at capacity.”
Of course, Adams has continued to double down on New York’s “sanctuary” status.
During his vanity tour, Adams has allegedly attempted to fight the “propaganda” migrants believe, including the fact that New York will house them in hotels.
Obviously, Adams really has been housing migrants in hotels, to the tune of an estimated $600,000 in taxpayer revenues per night.
Those hotels have apparently reached capacity, but migrants are apparently determined to exploit the United States regardless.
And that exploitation will come at a very heavy cost to Americans, especially when looking at the staggering reality of the numbers.
“Adams has said the crisis will cost NYC $12billion over three years. The staggering yearly cost is equal to the city’s sanitation, fire and parks departments budgets combined …
Meanwhile in Chicago, hundreds of migrants, from babies to the elderly, have been living inside a shuttle bus center at O’Hare International Airport’s Terminal 1. They sleep on cardboard pads on the floor and share airport bathrooms. A private firm monitors their movements.
Some migrants stay at O’Hare for weeks, then are moved to police stations or manage to get into the few shelters available. Within weeks, Chicago plans to roll out winterized tents, something New York has done,” the Daily Mail reported.
Only in the United States, in a Democrat city, can illegal migrants sleep freely in police stations while shamelessly exploiting American taxpayer-funded benefits to the max.
Such illegals would also be ripe for recruitment from a terrorist standpoint, especially when accounting for how many suspect foreign nationals have easily crossed American borders.
Breeding homegrown terrorism is clearly one of the many ways in which open borders comprise one of Biden’s most abject failures.
