Senior Department of Homeland Security officials have reportedly requested permission to fly illegal aliens to northern cities bordering Canada.
The policy suggestion is an attempt to lessen the burden from an unprecedented invasion of foreigners across the southern border, according to a CBS News report. July’s 199,976 reported encounters by Border Patrol agents along the southern border brings the yearly total to 1,946,780, according to CBP data.
White House refusal to permit DHS transports of illegal aliens to northern cities may stem from backlash caused by publicity of southern governors transportation policies. Govs. Greg Abbot (R-TX), Ron DeSantis (R-FL) and Doug Ducey (R-AZ) have made headlines transporting thousands of illegals to sanctuary cities like Chicago, New York and Washington, D.C.
Sanctuary cities guaranteed to provide basics like shelter and food to illegal aliens in response to immigration policies of former President Donald Trump.
The lofty promises of northern cities have turned to ashes in the mouths of mayors in those cities, now.
Washington, D.C, Mayor Muriel Bowser has twice asked the Department of Defense to activate the National Guard because her city, she claimed, had reached a “tipping point” handling illegals transported by southern states. After both requests were denied, Bowser declared a city State of Emergency.
NYC Mayor Eric Adams called a few dozen illegals bussed to the Big Apple from Texas “horrific.” He has since been sent more by Abbot.
Chicago’s Mayor Lori Lightfoot said she was upset by the shipments of illegals but would welcome them.
DeSantis caught wealthy islanders on Martha’s Vineyard by surprise when he flew a planeload of illegals there from Venezuela and Colombia this week. The tony enclave of wealthy coastal elites can’t hire doctors who will reside there because of exorbitant rent for scarce housing. Most of the illegal immigrants were shipped to a military base in Cape Cod, according to a Washington Post report.
Plans promulgated by Homeland Security officials include providing shelters advance warning of arriving illegals, in order to have time to prepare. Advance notice, officials stated, would reduce the chaos they claim follows the currently unannounced, unexpected deliveries of border jumpers.
The administration’s discussions are gaining urgency since the number of aliens sneaking across the southern border is nearing 8,000 per day.
