Isn’t it amazing that Democrats pressed for more and more illegal aliens when it was the border states that were suffering, but after Texas Gov Greg Abbott came up with the ingenious plan to ship those illegals to blue cities in blue states suddenly they want fewer illegals?
That is the difference between “I feel your pain” and “Now, I feel my pain.” That is exactly what is happening in New York City and the state of New York.
Gov. Kathy Hochul is now demanding closing the southern border and hiring more border patrol agents, not to process these illegal aliens, but to keep them out. And remember, compared to Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona, New York has gotten far fewer illegals than the border states. What does this tell you about Democrats? They were all for illegal immigration until they were the ones paying for them.
MARGARET BRENNAN: But it’s stunning that a trillion dollars is not – is not sufficient nationally.
I want to ask you as well about the other crisis you’ve been raising alarms about, and that is the strain due to migrants. There were no border provisions in this congressional bill that just passed. And I know you’ve said you’ve had to manage without help from Washington.
What would you ask Congress to get done in the next 45 days?
GOVERNOR KATHY HOCHUL: Well, shame on Speaker McCarthy and the Republicans in Congress, including the nine from New York state who are complaining like crazy about the migrants, but refuse to work with President Biden and come up with a sensible border strategy.
It can be done. This can be done in a bipartisan way, comprehensive immigration reform, whether it’s quotas, certain numbers…
MARGARET BRENNAN: What specifically do you want?
GOVERNOR KATHY HOCHUL: Well, we want them to have a limit on who can come across the border. It is too open right now.
People coming from all over the world are finding their way through, simply saying they need asylum, and the majority of them seem to be ending up in the streets of New York. And that is a real problem for New York City, 125,000 newly arrived individuals. And we are being taxed. Now, we are always so proud of the fact that New York has the Statue of Liberty in our harbor – harbor. We are one of the most diverse places on Earth because of our welcoming nature and our – it’s in our DNA to welcome immigrants.
But there has to be some limits in place. And Congress has to put more controls at the border, and not in this budget threat…
MARGARET BRENNAN: Right.
GOVERNOR KATHY HOCHUL: … shutdown threat talk about eliminating positions for Border Patrol, while we actually need to double or quadruple those numbers.
So, get back to work and do your jobs.
MARGARET BRENNAN: Governor, good luck.
When Democrats say we need comprehensive border reform, what do they really mean? That’s simple. They want to make the illegals legal. They want legislation that will not limit illegal crossings, they want a mass invasion and they waqn6t them to receive citizenship, driver’s licenses, and the right to vote for Democrats because Americans are catching on to the Marxist rhetoric coming from liberal politicians.
