One might have predicted it but all should have expected it. After months of record-breaking increases of illegals crossing the border, we now have the consequences. And aren’t they lovely?
We witnessed the massive infusion from open borders. We saw Governor Abbott busing off some of the hoards. And we witnessed the complaints about what he was doing.
Then we saw NYC Mayor Eric Adams complaining what a monumental expense it was to handle them — house, feed, clothe, medical expenses, educate and subsidize their every need. So he turned to blame the administration and ask for mo’ money to meet the needs. Well, Joey had already paid charities plenty of money to assist illegals, even in the record numbers. But Adams needs to pay for all the expenses.
They housed illegal immigrants in a luxury hotel in NYC, complete with all the amenities anyone would expect from a luxury hotel. They had ethnic meals and room service to cater to their every whim. For illegals, what is not to like? What is there to complain about? The food didn’t quite meet their desires.
But they had plenty of other benefits. And that is the problem, so they didn’t want to leave and go elsewhere when they already settled into their new digs. I mean the nerve of someone interrupting their entitled services for any reason.
Mayor Adams and others decided to move them to another location, but the illegals didn’t like that. Why should they have to give up a gravy train in any way? Who else but they deserves these all-star benefits at our expense? It’s worth the trip. All they had to do was cross the border and voila: a whole wonderful utopia awaits them with every amenity possible , just ready to be enjoyed. Fantasy Island, move on over. Why wouldn’t they want to come? “Go to America; they are giving everything away for free.” Except it isn’t free.
How many messages do you think were sent from that hotel back home or to others already on the way, complete with pictures? “Look what you get when you come here. The food needs a little seasoning, and and the shrimp is a little small but other than that…”
So when word came down that they were moving them to Brooklyn, it really angered them. “You cannot expect us to be happy with second-rate accommodations after this!” A spokesman for illegals said that there are enough over-funded departments like the police, which could be easily cut in order to have plenty of resources to give new arrivals.
Some people might even consider those sentiments ungrateful. But this is what our own government and public officials have done — squandered the taxpayers’ money on lavishing it on illegals.
As if all this were not bad enough, a teacher in a Rhode Island school sent out an email about a student who owed coyotes money for bringing them to the US. It suggested people chip in to help the child pay off the ransom. Now it doesn’t matter that days later the principal condemned the email. It was already done though. I’m sure they will find another way to put money in his hands and pay it off. And this could have only encouraged more of the same ‘just take it’ attitude.
One has to wonder if that is just what the US has turned into, a squatters’ paradise? It is now up to the rest of us to support them. Well, once it starts you know the rest.
