El Paso Mayor Oscar Leeser has finally given in.
Backroom rumors were that the Biden administration was pushing Leeser to hold off on declaring an emergency before the election.
They reportedly did not want Leeser, a Democrat, bringing attention to the situation at the border.
With illegal immigrants now living on the streets of his city, he had no choice but to declare.
Open Borders Have Consequences
On the issues at the border, Leeser stated, “Our asylum seekers are not safe.
“We have hundreds and hundreds on the street and that’s not the way we treat our people.
“I want to make sure that people are treated with dignity.”
This whole “asylum” thing is a complete joke, as the overwhelming majority of these illegals are having their asylum claims denied. This is just an outright invasion of the country by illegal immigrants due to Joe Biden’s lax policies.
We are now averaging about 7,000 illegal encounters every day, with about 1,500 of them coming directly into El Paso.
If Title 42 falls, that number is likely to double, but the initial influx will be far more.
El Paso was promised $6 million to help with the flow of illegals into the city, but it apparently has not yet received that money.
Now, as a taxpayer, you also have consider how much collectively this is costing us right now.
City shelters are packed, immigration holding centers look more like sardine cans right now, and migrants are being forced to live on the streets.
Leeser is now considering using a nearby military base for housing, but how long will that hold out with the flow we are currently seeing?
All the while, Karine Jean-Pierre insists the border is closed and Biden says he has “more important” things going on than to visit the border right now.
We know what their end game is here, but how much longer are they going to allow this to go uncontrolled and how much longer is the mainstream media going to ignore it?
