Looks like Illinois Governor JB Pritzker might want to be rethinking Illinois’s motto, which proclaims the state to be the “Most Welcoming State in the Nation.”
More than one illegal certainly took note of that, happily boarding Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s buses to voyage up north to such a “welcome.”
As detailed by the Daily Mail, Pritzker sent a long letter to President Biden, bemoaning the fact that his sate has been overrun by 15,000 illegals over the course of thirteen months, or under 1,000 illegals per month on average.
Obviously, Pritzker didn’t bother to think about the tone deafness of his letter, given that some border towns in Texas are routinely overwhelmed by 1,000 illegals per day.
“In the 13 months since the first busy of asylum seekers arrived in Illinois from the border, our state has undertaken an unprecedented humanitarian response to the arrival of now over 15,000 people. Governors and mayors from border states have shipped people to our state like cargo in a dehumanizing attempt to score political points,” Pritzker whined.
Clearly, Pritzker is referring to Abbott.
Even more clearly, Pritzker conveniently ignores the elephant in the room: Many illegals use Abbott’s busing system because they want to go to Chicago, on “free” transportation to boot, knowing that they’ll never have to worry about federal immigration authorities in a self-proclaimed sanctuary state.
“The people of Illinois are kind and generous. We believe in the fundamental right of every human, especially those facing persecution, to find refuge and live with dignity in this great country of ours. But the numbers being transported to Chicago are accelerating, the humanitarian crisis is overwhelming our ability to provide aid to the refugee population,” Pritzker added.
For reference, “refugee” is a term applied to individuals fleeing truly imminent danger to their lives, typically of the genocidal or military variety.
Such as individuals fleeing Germany during the Second World War.
To liken the illegals to actual refugees is beyond insulting.
The illegals currently making their way throughout the United States are primarily here for money-based, rather than political persecution-based, reasons.
With “money-based” including massive government handouts.
“It is time for the federal government to take a much more active role in managing the transport and destination of the transport of asylum seekers. Allowing just one state to lay the burden upon a certain few states run by Democrats is untenable,” the Illinois governor whined.
Actually, Mr. Governor, what’s really “untenable” is the mass of Democrat-sanctioned “sanctuary cities,” given that these locales tend to be a major cause of all the migration chaos in the first place.
Just like New York Governor Kathy Hochul, who recently bemoaned the state of illegal migration to her state, Pritzker seems unable to grasp his own role in the crisis.
Then, Pritzker predictably demands that the White House supersede the Texas governor’s right to protect his own borders, which is especially critical now that the federal government has opted to largely ignore the crisis.
“The federal government must take over the interior coordination of routing buses of newly arrived migrants across the country and oversee communication between states, so they are aware of who is arriving and when. The federal government must stop abdicating responsibility once the CPB releases migrants into the interior of the country. Your administration has the capacity, resources, and legal recourse to do this right now,” Pritzker demanded.
Well, the White House regime certainly has no issue hurling $100B+ into a war with no clear ends and ways, and increasingly dwindling means, to boot.
But it clearly has an issue hurling huge amounts of funds into issues that relate directly and immediately to American security.
Perhaps the most pathetically of all, Pritzker displays an astonishing level of naivete when he prattles on about the “asylum seekers.”
“Mr. President, I urge you, Secretary Mayorkas, and the rest of your administration to take swift action and intervene on our behalf and on behalf of the other affected states and their residents, as well as on behalf of the of the tens of thousands of asylum seekers who undertook a dangerous and difficult journey in hopes of attaining public safety and forging a better life for themselves and their families,” the Illinois governor implored.
Is that so?
Tell that to the illegals who were just arrested for human trafficking … collaborating with Disney employees.
