As you well know, there’s a major border/immigration crisis going on in the United States. Millions of migrants from countries even as far away as India are flooding our southern borders. And no, I’m not exaggerating.
According to the US border agencies and the data they’ve collected in recent months, as of September, there had been 1.7 million illegal border crossers apprehended so far this year, a record to be sure. And that’s just the number of those caught. Thousands more have made it through undetected and without consequence.
Clearly, that’s too many people for the already packed border facilities to manage. So what are they doing? Well, Biden’s administration has given them permission to bus and fly these illegals all over the country, without papers, without COVID vaccines, and even without a COVID test.
Cities like Jacksonville, Florida, have been inundated with them.
As the Washington Examiner reported on Saturday, the city was recently chosen as the place to drop off no less than 70 flights of foreign nationals.
As Larry Keefe, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ public safety czar, explains, 70 flights of illegal passengers is quite a lot of people. “On average, there’s 36 passengers on each of these flights. And that’s been going on over the course of the summer through September.”
And if that wasn’t bad enough, this is all being done in the dead of night with no forewarning, no discussion, or not even a mention of it to Jacksonville’s city leaders or community members.
Community members like Republican Representative Maria Salazar have spoken to her fellow Latino residents and agree that the whole situation is rather embarrassing if not completely dangerous.
She explained to Fox News that because a great majority of these incoming illegals are of Hispanic descent and speak their language, they end up “in our barrios,” or neighborhoods. But “we do not know if those people are child sex traffickers, if they’re drug dealers, if they’re coyotes.”
Instead, her communities are left at the mercy of whoever and whatever these individuals are. Individuals like Honduran migrant Yery Medina Ulloa, who lied about his age (24) to immigration officials and because of the massive holes in Biden’s immigrations policies, was placed in the home of Jacksonville resident Francisco Cuellar and his four children.
Ulloa was found days later, covered in blood, after killing Cuellar and leaving his four children without a father.
Undoubtedly, Florida officials are tired of being used as the stomping grounds for Biden’s unwanted problems and mistakes. And so they are standing up and making plans to make our dismal national leader see the error of his ways.
Now, as Governor DeSantis explains, he really has no control over these immigrants being dropped off in his state. However, once they are there, maybe he can ship them elsewhere, say to Biden’s very blue home state of Delaware.
On Wednesday, in a news conference, DeSantis admitted that he could not fly the migrants anywhere as Biden has, as the federal government has, jurisdiction over air travel. However, he could likely bus these illegals there, couldn’t he?
He said, “If they’re going to come here, you know, we’ll provide buses… I’ll send them to Delaware. If he’s not going to support the border being secured, then he should be able to have everyone there.”
Naturally, the idea didn’t take off too well with either liberals or Delaware residents.
But they may not have a choice. While DeSantis was certainly being rather “cheeky” about his proposition, he’s also quite serious about the possibility, according to the New York Post. I mean, is there any law forbidding DeSantis from moving migrants out of his state?
It’s something DeSantis and his staff will be “looking into” immediately. And I can’t blame them. Biden has time and time again used red states like Texas and Florida to shove his problems onto, as if we are too red-necked and backward to notice.
Maybe it’s time he and his liberal friends get a taste of their own medicine for once.
