Border Sheriffs Lambast Liberal Mayors Over Migrant Buses

Sheriffs on the front lines of President Joe Biden’s border crisis are amused at the cries of anguish from big-city Democratic mayors over the migrant buses coming their way from Texas and Arizona.

When locals lament their eastern cities are becoming “border towns,” it’s obvious that something is being done right. Roughly 10,000 of the millions of border crossers have been sent to Washington, D.C., New York City, and Chicago.

There is also now word that Philadelphia may be the next target for Texas Gov. Abbott’s buses.

As Goliad County, Texas Sheriff Roy Boyd said, the mayors “have seen nothing. They are not a border town. They don’t know what a border town is.”

Abbott and Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, both Republicans, have played their cards well to get national attention on the troubles facing their states every day. There have been over two million border encounters with Border Patrol, far and away a new record, in this fiscal year.

And now the Democratic mayors of Washington and Chicago are letting the world know that there is a crisis. That is something Biden and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas steadfastly refuse to recognize.

To these mayors, however, particularly Muriel Bowser in Washington, the crisis is the thousands of illegal migrants being voluntarily bused to their cities. The crisis for them is not the two million flooding across the border.

And it’s not just the mayors. In the nation’s capital, councilmember Brianne Nadeau does not think the city’s dilemma is the result of Biden’s willful negligence or progressives’ long history of wanting to erase borders.

No, the crisis is that the governors of Texas and Arizona took it on themselves to share the burden with these so-called “sanctuary” cities. Nadeau absurdly asserts that the two governors “created this crisis.”

She then blamed the federal government, but only for not funding the “crisis.”

Jonathan Thompson, CEO of the National Sheriff’s Association, sends out a warm welcome to Nadeau and others who mistakenly think they are taking the brunt of Biden’s failed immigration policies. “Welcome to our world,” he said. These are “everyday problems.”
