Time to switch to that stuff from New York City.

"New York City!"

Time to stop sending any federal funds to Texas for immigration enforcement.

dr_blasto: Time to stop sending any federal funds to Texas for immigration enforcement.


I would love to see the white house issue an executive order removing federal funding from texas and florida and distributing it to all the areas they keep bussing immigrants to.

Give New York a chunk of the money Texas gets.

I'm sure everyone will be happy with this.

New York: "Send us your migrants, We'll welcome them with open arms!!"

Also New York: "Stop sending us so many migrants."

Really, everyone is just giving farking Ammo to people like DeSantis and his ilk. Now they get to point out that "sanctuary cities" don't actually want the people. They'll make it into some kind of hypocrisy, and they're gonna beat the Dems over the head with it. They're going to show how these welcoming cities can't even handle the influx.

Hey, Mr. Mayor, how about you stop being the embarrassing, whiny little biatch that Abbott and DeSantis want you to be, do what you need to do to take care of these folks. And then employ these folks to perform city services, and say, "Hey, this is what New York has done with immigrants for 300 years -- invite them in, put them to work, and if you don't like that go fark yourself."
 
2022-10-07 3:05:26 PM

2022-10-07 3:06:20 PM  
As if New York doesn't already have undocumented immigrants. I guess they're not all brown so Abbott and DeSantis don't see it. New York should send their homeless to TX and FL. They both claim their low tax rates are great for business, so I'm sure they'll find jobs there in no time.

Sanctuary cities mean victims of crimes won't be investigated for their immigration status. It has nothing to do with "welcoming" them. That's not a thing. Republicans can't use specific language, only catch phrases, because being specific would show they are lying. It's as big a lie as "open borders."

There is a straight-forward way of dealing with illegal immigration.

Get rid of the huge demand for illegal immigrant labor by going after the people who are hiring them.

As a bonus, it would be pretty funny to hear Republicans screaming about how unfair that is.

I wish democrats would push this more. It never meant these cities would start housing and accepting immigrants.

Here is an article with more details since no one seems to understand the purpose of the state of emergency.

https://www.cnn.com/2022/10/07/us/nyc-mayor-emergency-migrants/index.html

It gives funds to support the immigrants, 17,000 of which have been sent from Texas since April.

This isn't declaring war on asylum seekers, this is dealing with a humanitarian crisis.

Declaring an emergency opens up funds that he can spend to take care  of said folks.

Well, it's true. You conservatives don't actually care about the facts or if what you're saying is even remotely true or not, just how loud you can tantrum.

I'm not the one declaring a State of Emergency.


So now you're saying immigration is not an emergency?

Then why the fark have you goddamn fools been bleating and crying about it for so damn long? Why the fark are you freaking out that Biden is failing to respond to a non-emergency?
 
2022-10-07 3:37:13 PM  
We are a country of what? 350 Million people. So yeah, nah. Not a billion immigrants. Everywhere would be insanely crowded now if that were the case.

What i find humorous:
On one hand, they whine about a 'border crisis'.
Yet on the other, they are upset there's not enough illegal immigrant workerscoming in for them to exploit.
So why not hire americans? Oh yeah, not enough pressure on them to actually pay a fair wage, even minimum wage.

I've been hearing this whine for most of my life. A few simple law changes would fix it real quick starting with one that states ANY business caught hiring illegal immigrants - seized. Lost to the cheat business owners forever. Most businesses and individuals won't risk losing their land or income to save a few bucks on cheap labor. This also means it would be much harder for them to find work/income unless they come through using the proper process. 

One law, enforced, could change things dramatically here. But, you don't see Republicans demanding it. Guess why? Maybe because most of the ones exploiting them are Republican/Conservative. Pretty much most of the central and midwest agriculture industry is, and they won't do anything that would mean they have to be legitimate and fair employers.

Sanctuary city means the city won't help ICE round up illegals.  That's it.

It means a bit more than that depending on the location

It means that the cities have alternate forms of ID and won't share that info with ICE. Some let them have drivers licenses. NYC lets those that help with police investigations get SNAP.

Why do you hate brown people and want to see them suffer?

With shelters at capacity, hundreds of migrants are being released in El Paso streets

Large groups of migrants - the vast majority Venezuelan men - were released into the streets of El Paso the last two days by border enforcement agents as shelters that typically receive them are at capacity.
And more street releases may be necessary as there has been a significant increase in migrant encounters the past few days - more than 1,000 a day on average - border law officials said.
"As we process migrants in our custody, we will do so with the goal of treating everyone in our custody in a respectful, safe and humane manner," officials with the El Paso sector of the U.S. Border Patrol said in a statement to El Paso Matters. "Migrants will be provisionally released near community shelters, homeless shelters, and bus stations throughout the city of El Paso."

They are here. And you want the people getting them out of there to the places where jobs and family are waiting for them to be "arrested on kidnapping and human trafficking charges." Dude, why do you hate brown people and want to see them suffer?
