On Christmas Eve, the New York Times published an excellent article entitled: ‘We Are Not Equipped to Deal with This’: Migrant Surge Overwhelms U.S. Border. The byline read, Officials are struggling to contend with the chaos at the U.S.-Mexico border as thousands of migrants arrive every day, trekking from the farthest reaches of the globe.
Most interesting were the article’s 1503 comments. Published figures show that 91% of Times’ readers are Democrats, so taken as a whole, their postings reflect the concerns of Democrats nationwide.
Here’s why that’s important: Democratic Times subscribers are fed up with open-borders immigration. They see it as a major, perhaps decisive issue undermining Democrats’ chances of victory in November.
Many of their comments were harshly critical of the immigrant surge. One pro-migrant commenter expressed disgust at his fellow Democrats’ hostile reactions to the immigrant surge: “This xenophobic comment section just cost Biden my vote. I won’t vote for Trump, but I’m sure not voting for this version of ‘liberals’ either.”
Residents of New York City expressed exhaustion at the flood of migrants pouring in. One Democrat wrote: “Biden will probably lose the election if substantive action isn’t taken real soon.” He continued, “Here in NYC we’re “drowning” in illegal immigrants, and the worsening financial repercussions are untenable.” Another New Yorker chimed in: “We are watching lawlessness on a grand scale here – exceedingly expensive too! – and it is getting clearer each day that it may well re-elect Donald Trump.” Another said he despises Texas Gov. Greg Abbott for his stance on abortion but understands why he sends illegals to other states, “. . . I live in NYC and I do not want any more migrants coming to my town.”
Migration is skyrocketing as the world discovers that the U.S. border is wide open to foreigners. People are swarming in from everywhere.
Someone pays the costly airfare for impoverished men to fly 8,000 miles from Sudan to enter the U.S. illegally. Those who pay intend to destabilize America.
Let’s stop attributing this crisis to ineptitude. It is not negligent, it is deliberate, and it is the greatest betrayal in U.S. history. The Department of Justice has sued Texas to prevent their national guardsmen from slowing the rapid flow of migrants into the heartland. Democrats intend to swamp every city in America with foreigners, fundamentally altering the nation’s demographic mix.
New York Times subscribers were blunt when criticizing the right to asylum. One wrote, “Asylum claims are now being used to fuel a general ‘right to migrate and cross all international borders.’” Another said that migrants enter the U.S. under the false pretext of asylum, saying the border crisis is “built on a lie.”
Biden immigrants go straight to welfare. They swamp our schools. They displace Americans from low-cost rentals and trailer parks. New York City taxpayers are forced to house disruptive aliens in posh luxury hotels.
Foreigners take priority over our own. In New York City, a 95-year-old Korean War veteran was evicted to make way for migrants. In California, Gov. Gavin Newsom extended Medi-Cal benefits to 750,000 foreign migrants; they get free medical benefits while 26 million Americans have no health insurance at all. When it comes to government services, Americans are the forgotten people.
Voters have shifted dramatically against immigration, making a Republican wave election a distinct likelihood. Both parties now agree that Biden’s open borders policy is a disaster. People are fed up and won’t take it much longer.
