Hypocrisy This Outrageous Will Make You Laugh
April 17, 2019
You have to wonder why the left rushed so enthusiastically into declaring sanctuary status for illegal immigrant in so many states, cities, and towns. Obviously they’re attempting to cater to various sub-groups of voters and, most especially the left-wing crowd who’s only mantra is “anything-Trump-opposes-I-have-to-support.” But by denying cooperation with federal immigration authorities when it comes to identifying and deporting violent criminals in this country illegally, they just make their own communities a lot less safe and a lot more expensive.
Way too many American citizens have been murdered, robbed, raped or otherwise violated because criminals here illegally have been protected by these sanctuary Meccas.
Now, our Southern border is being over run by illegals, literally hundreds of thousands so far this year, demanding we let them in.
President Trump has always been against sanctuary states and cities. He’s even threatened to hold back some federal funds which these places need.
I share his frustration. The left is great with grand gestures, but lousy at actually working with others to solve problems. And because liberals in Congress won’t give border agencies the money they need to properly house those caught crossing our border illegally, the courts are forcing those agencies to turn detainees loose into the U.S.
That’s all prologue to Trump’s apparently tongue in cheek proposal the other day that detainees be released into the sanctuary cities and states that leftists are using as political props.
But while most conservatives laughed with Trump, the left wing elites started bleating their outrage.
It’s odd is it not, that liberals who the day before had literally put out the welcome mat for illegals were suddenly plunged into a frenzy of near apoplectic proportions denouncing the President’s remarks.
The same governors, mayors, and legislators who endangered their fellow citizens in the first place were suddenly sputtering mad. The same members of Congress who refuse to provide funds to solve the border crisis — and who until a few days ago denied the existence of a crisis — now claim it’s all Trump’s fault. All those who used the sanctuary movement as a means to vilify Trump now claim sending newly arrived immigrants to sanctuary municipalities would be an outrage. They say Trump can’t do it.
Of course, they offer no alternative.
It’s curious. My question is that having made much of their own superior compassion all these years, why would the sanctimonious leftists want more illegals as part of their sanctuary experiment?
At current rates, it’s expected the U.S. will see upwards of 1 million new migrants enter our country illegally this year. Here California; accept, feed, house, and care for your share, how about 250,000. Here, New York, take 200,000. Hey Seattle, how about you take 50,000? And here Chicago is your 100,000. On it goes.
Why are the liberals so hopping mad? Money! How will they house these people? Where are 250,000 people who don’t speak English going to find jobs? How will they expand classrooms to accommodate 50 students instead of the 35 they already fail to educate?
And then there is health care. The illegal immigrants don’t have doctors, so they’ll naturally use Emergency Rooms when they get sick or hurt. 250,000 new ER patients might well murder the health care left-wing Democrats claim they want to make more accessible to us all. And, since California’s new governor announced he’ll provide free health insurance to illegals, expect the health care tab there to increase by way over a billion dollars.
The liberals are hypocrites. They use the sad and desperate plight of illegal immigrants as a political tool, but they refuse to take any action at all to relieve that plight. They know there’s a dangerous crisis on our border, but they’re still screeching about Trump racism rather than stepping up and helping out. They know their do-nothing policies have caused this catastrophic mess, but they refuse to work with or even talk with President Trump on anything, especially immigration.
But if leftists believe they’re going to win the P.R. battle on this and leave the President holding the bag, they’ve miscalculated badly. Most Americans know it’s the Democrats who have stopped any possible fix for our border problem, failed to resolve the Dreamer issue, and refuse to offer immigration reform that respects migrants, accounts for taxpayers, and addresses the needs of America’s business owners.
Trump may have meant his proposal as humorous irony, but I for one love the idea. Bussing 50,000 illegals to San Francisco and dropping them off on Union Square and Fisherman’s Wharf might finally move the liberals from politics to problem solving.
I’d probably feel mildly concerned for the residents who’s quality of life will suffer, but what the hell, they voted for the leftist goons who gave us these crazy sanctuary policies. If it happens and those voters suddenly feel like crying, they can deal with it at the next election. As for me, I relish Trump’s exposing left wing hypocrisy. I find it hilarious.
