When Democrats started to make the big push to legalize illegal immigration, New York City and DC were at the front of the line to be sanctuary cities.
They would house and feed the illegals as well as protect them from the big, bad southern states actually dealing with this mess.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s little PR stunt is no longer a stunt, as it is starting to impact these cities.
Now, both are crying foul.
Feel Our Pain
This move by Abbott was initially laughed at by many, but it is starting to take hold.
He has shipped only a small percentage of what Texas is seeing to DC and NYC, but both cities are still struggling with the surge.
This “surge” collectively remains less than what Texas sees in a single day at the border.
NYC Mayor Adams is whining to everyone that will listen…
Make no mistake, New York City will ALWAYS stand up to @realDonaldTrump and call out his cynical plots to divide our country. To anyone in the world fleeing hatred and oppression, the ultimate city of immigrants wants you to remember: you’re ALWAYS welcome here. pic.twitter.com/H9xOYz5mJe

DC Mayor Bowser is pleading for National Guard help, but the White House is reluctant to give it for fear it would promote the crisis narrative.
Former Acting ICE Director Thomas Homan is applauding the move by Abbott, especially for how it is exposing these hypocritical Democrats.
Homan stated, “I also think he’s calling out politicians for claiming to be sanctuary cities because it’s good for their political careers – but when you actually give them people, put people in their welcoming communities, they’re pushing back against it.”
He added, “I think Governor Abbott’s taking a stab at raising the temperature and trying to get attention on the subject and hopefully pushing the White House to take some action.
“I think what he’s doing is great.”
When Abbott started this, I even admitted I thought it was a PR stunt, but I liked the concept because it forced these cities to admit the problem.
Abbott has since taken this program to a whole new level, exporting far more illegals than I ever thought he would, and it is applying serious pressure to these Democrat cities.
I agree, Mr. Homan, Abbott is doing a great job and I love it!
